I was wondering if there are any more roleplayers here who really appreciate a qualitative journey/chapter based roleplay and would really like to participate in one that ran through to the end of a region?

I've entered many of those but they all seem to die off after some time; either because the players run out of new adventures to write about in the chapters or because the players loose interest/time for other reasons. Another reason is that the GM disappears or did not plan out the story beforehand well enough to keep their own interest up for long enough.

I'm currently GMing a chaptered journey RP (Arcanum) that is running very slowly because players are not posting (this is not directed to those of you who are working on joint posts, I know who you are ;D ). It might be that a new region is more difficult to post in because you can't plan ahead as much as in a canon region. Or it might be that the standard post length have been set so high that players feel like it's a chore to post. I want to avoid that, but I'm not sure how anymore xD Still learning as I go. Of course.


Anyways, bottom line. If more players who reads this love to write relatively long posts, love to play as a pokémon trainer and would really want to create an epic roleplay with interesting characters and interactions that goes through a whole region (give me KANTO) (and possibly several afterwards), I'd be happy to discuss the creation of such an RP with you over PM. I could basically be the GM and run it, since it would not be as fun for everyone if all the players knew the twists of the plot beforehand, but a co-GM or even several would not be impossible with this.

This idea would, if successful, mean that we might not even need to keep sign ups open, but rather beforehand recruit players who express interest and that we believe would stay with us to the end.

If there aren't any others who feel like me here right now, then *shrug* xD The interest for this kind of RPs seem to go in waves after all.

    @RHCP I'd certainly be interested in that. Journey based RP's are essentially what the pokemon games are, and surely most of us love those? Feel free to PM me either about membership or co-GM.

    For many of the people who come here, there's a certain thrill of playing as a character from the games but in a much more free and customized setting, yes :] but there are also many who have grown tired of pokémon RPs or at least journey RPs since it's often the same thing over and over.

    What I want to do is something that stays interesting through all the routes and towns and has a certain story to it but still feels like a free, basic pokémon game. There also should be some kind of reward system for posting, because usually that makes it feel like you accomplish something good when you've written up your amazing little post~ Most often, it's done by the GM handing out levels or approving a new pokémon capture. It might be done in other ways, perhaps.

    I can PM you in a while :3

      To be quite honest, the only RP I think I've ever been in that didn't really have a journey might be PTA, since it revolves around staying on the island. Not that that's a bad thing, though. It's a lot more relaxing oddly enough.

          Nooooo I was not really in the mood of creating a chaptered RP otherwise I would have volunteered :(

          Still participating, but not really into GMing a RP like that, although I do hope we have more ideas like this in the future! :]

            I want to make a Team Rocket Journey RP. Players would start out in Viridian City with a Rattatta, Zubat, Drowzee etc. and instead of catching Pokémon they fight other trainers to steal theirs (though if a Rocket comes across a Pokéball on the ground or something, they can use it to catch other Pokémon), and they have to travel to each gym to steal a Pokémon from each leader (to either be used on their team or sent to the boss, the effects of which I would explain if I did not want to create a tl;dr post). I guess if anyone is interested in helping me creatively, then you can. :P

              I love the idea. The journey RP's are one of the many reasons I joined PC. I am short on time at the moment, but can make time in a while. I would be happy to help any way I can.

              Would we look here to find out about the RP then?

                That's actually a really interesting idea, though if you have seven players all trying to steal pokemon from the same gym leader, things have the potential to get messy.

                  Well everyone would go at their own pace I guess, and the 'theft' would be fighting the Gym Leader, beating them and capturing their Pokémon instead of getting a badge. Maybe. I dunno. That all popped up in my head as I was typing, so obviously there's room for development~

                  I think it sounds like a great idea, as long as you developed the details, mechanics and the story behind it all into something cool.

                  About the idea I posted above, I'll probably get in touch with people who have expressed interest and whom I believe to be solid enough RPers, soon some time. I have an idea in my head about the setting and plot.

                    I know I haven't posted here in forever (since the My Pokemon Ranch RP died iirc), but I've been keeping up with the forum and reading what's been going on. And I have been looking and waiting for a journey/chapter-based RP for forever. I don't know if I've posted enough before for you to properly judge if I'm a good enough RP'er for something like this, but if possible I would definitely love to be a part of or help out with it :D

                      is this the place where you can asks permission for a roleplay? so not then can someone tell me where i have to add my roleplay for permission?

                      this is the roleplay i would like to have permission for:

                      PMD: Victory's Reign

                      Plot:
                      For ten years the pokemon world has been at total peace. No wars, no dis-balencement. Everything was fine. Though peace can never last, never has, never will. The legendary pokemon Victini has became corrupt. This happened because Victini replies on pokemon working hard for victory. Pokemon have stopped doing that, so now it's caused Victini to become corrupt. And sense Victini is corrupt, luck has went down. Things are going horrible. The food supply is becoming rotten, the waters are become filthy, houses are being destroyed, and so much more.

                      Now if somebody doesn't reason with Victini, the pokemon world is doomed. But it's not that easy. There are many pokemon in trouble, and they need to be saved, or they'll be no one to save! Once they are saved, not only will there be a reason to try to reason with Victini, but they'll be more help. Reasoning with Victini, it isn't going to be easy. Victini is very stubborn now, and most likely will have to be faught. And as the pokemon of victory, fighting Victini will be a hard task, it will take several to do this.
                      So a new Pokemon Explores crew has sprouted. The Vicory Scars. They are called this because they're lives had been troubled, or 'scared' by Victini's corruption. They are picking the best pokemon there is to make as strong a team as possible. If they don't, the world might be doomed. If it takes them too long to save all of the pokemon in trouble, Victini will have time to become so corrupt the good side of Victini will be gone.

                      So not only is it a important quest, but it's a limited-timed quest. They have to work on saving all of the pokemon, train, and eventually fight against the very powerful Victini. This will be very hard. Victini is very strong, and rumor has it Victini never loses. So now, they'll have to see if this is true. If it is, the world is doomed. But they have to try. There's no way around it.

                      the roleplayers are all pokemon with human looks, this mean you are a human with a pokemon tail and pokemon ears etc. and you may have the same haircolor as the pokemon, example: you are a Pikachu, you have pikachu ears, a pikachu tail, and your haircolor is blonde, you also can have the same color as the pokemon as your clothes, example: you are a human with a pikachu tail, pikachu ears, your hair color is black and you wear a yellow shirt and black shorts. this is also called pokemon gijinka

                      example of how you look like:

                            this is the roleplay i would like to have permission for:

                            PMD: Victory's Reign

                            Plot:
                            For ten years the pokemon world has been at total peace. No wars, no dis-balencement. Everything was fine. Though peace can never last, never has, never will. The legendary pokemon Victini has became corrupt. This happened because Victini replies on pokemon working hard for victory. Pokemon have stopped doing that, so now it's caused Victini to become corrupt. And sense Victini is corrupt, luck has went down. Things are going horrible. The food supply is becoming rotten, the waters are become filthy, houses are being destroyed, and so much more.

                            Now if somebody doesn't reason with Victini, the pokemon world is doomed. But it's not that easy. There are many pokemon in trouble, and they need to be saved, or they'll be no one to save! Once they are saved, not only will there be a reason to try to reason with Victini, but they'll be more help. Reasoning with Victini, it isn't going to be easy. Victini is very stubborn now, and most likely will have to be faught. And as the pokemon of victory, fighting Victini will be a hard task, it will take several to do this.
                            So a new Pokemon Explores crew has sprouted. The Vicory Scars. They are called this because they're lives had been troubled, or 'scared' by Victini's corruption. They are picking the best pokemon there is to make as strong a team as possible. If they don't, the world might be doomed. If it takes them too long to save all of the pokemon in trouble, Victini will have time to become so corrupt the good side of Victini will be gone.

                            So not only is it a important quest, but it's a limited-timed quest. They have to work on saving all of the pokemon, train, and eventually fight against the very powerful Victini. This will be very hard. Victini is very strong, and rumor has it Victini never loses. So now, they'll have to see if this is true. If it is, the world is doomed. But they have to try. There's no way around it.

                            example of how you look like:
                            Er, no, you just create a new thread. However, is this it? Do you not have a Sign-Up sheet or rules? There's more to RP than plots; you need to have structure and a way for people to join. If you just create an RP like that, it won't be accepted. Plus, there are some grammatical errors in the plot as well. I would suggest not posting a new thread quite yet.

                                    I was wondering if there are any more roleplayers here who really appreciate a qualitative journey/chapter based roleplay and would really like to participate in one that ran through to the end of a region?

                                    I've entered many of those but they all seem to die off after some time; either because the players run out of new adventures to write about in the chapters or because the players loose interest/time for other reasons. Another reason is that the GM disappears or did not plan out the story beforehand well enough to keep their own interest up for long enough.

                                    I'm currently GMing a chaptered journey RP (Arcanum) that is running very slowly because players are not posting (this is not directed to those of you who are working on joint posts, I know who you are ;D ). It might be that a new region is more difficult to post in because you can't plan ahead as much as in a canon region. Or it might be that the standard post length have been set so high that players feel like it's a chore to post. I want to avoid that, but I'm not sure how anymore xD Still learning as I go. Of course.


                                    Anyways, bottom line. If more players who reads this love to write relatively long posts, love to play as a pokémon trainer and would really want to create an epic roleplay with interesting characters and interactions that goes through a whole region (give me KANTO) (and possibly several afterwards), I'd be happy to discuss the creation of such an RP with you over PM. I could basically be the GM and run it, since it would not be as fun for everyone if all the players knew the twists of the plot beforehand, but a co-GM or even several would not be impossible with this.

                                    This idea would, if successful, mean that we might not even need to keep sign ups open, but rather beforehand recruit players who express interest and that we believe would stay with us to the end.

                                    If there aren't any others who feel like me here right now, then *shrug* xD The interest for this kind of RPs seem to go in waves after all.
                                    Those all sound like things I would be interested in. Journey's, KANTO, Pokemon, Epic Stuff, and finishing things. Feel free to discuss with me, or if not, make the RP. Make the RP regardless if you are PM'ing me of course.

                                    EDIT: Do it for my 400th post. :D

There also should be some kind of reward system for posting, because usually that makes it feel like you accomplish something good when you've written up your amazing little post~ Most often, it's done by the GM handing out levels or approving a new pokémon capture. It might be done in other ways, perhaps.


                                      Just a thought that hit me, what if you find items occasionally with certain post, depending on quality. Something like finding a special pokeball for a good post to a TM for an excelent post. It probally wouldn't be much different than levels, but it may get people a reason to post other than for battles.
