After some time of stalking this thread, I've finally mustered enough guts to post an intro sort of thing. So, um, hello. :3 I'm pretty new to this forum but not to role-playing. I wish to improve my writing skills through RPs, so here I am. :D Anyway, will the casual RP that you guys were talking about still happen? Oh, and Akio? I'm interested in your RP as well.

Hi! Glad to see that a new face found her way here. The best way of improving your skills is to simply sign up for something and play until you get the hang of it. Most players here are helpful and nice, whether you are new or an oldie, so don't hesitate to ask if there is something you don't understand. If it's a general RP question, you can ask here. If it's a question about a specific RP, it's better to ask in that RPs OOC thread or to ask the GM directly.

Don't know if that casual thingy will kick off, but if you are looking for RPs to join, a good way is to check the latest posts in this thread: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=245624&page=8 Subscribe to it, and you'll get notified when new roleplays come up :3

You can also take a look in this thread http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=263823 to see what different kinds of RPs we have.

I hope you'll find something that suits you and that you will have fun around here.

    Nice to meet you. The best way to improve of course is to sign-up for any RPs. The Roleplay Lounge has many OOC RPs you can sign up for. I guess this is a short answer.

    @PS: No problem!

    No worries about the short answer: I usually do that, too. Anyway, thank you. ^^

        Hey there SkittishHeart! Welcome to the RP Corner! As for RPs you can just browse around and see if there are any you like. Like RHCP said, you can subscribe to the roleplay acceptance thread and find a new RP that way. Great to see a new face here!

          So, would anyone be interested in the casual RP that was mentioned last page? If so, I have a few plot/setting ideas, (ALL OF THEM SUCK) which concentrate on character development and are platforms for experienced RP'ers to help new faces.

          Idea 1 (Based on concepts of Harvest Moon)

          The characters are set in a small village, where hard work is done by hand and the place is self sufficient. Replace the tractors, machines and power tools with hand tools, animal-controlled plows and simple devices. The people have some technology, like electricity. (Not used for farming, woodworking or anything else except lighting houses and businesses, and powering heating and cooling. Each character and NPC has a role to play (Take out the 'to' and you get roleplay, UCWHTIDIDTHER) in making the village self-sufficent and functioning well. The characters would be farmers, ranchers, woodworkers, fishermen, store owners etc. .

          Idea 2:

          The Characters here are in the world of Pokemon, throughout Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova (We would start in Kanto, then expand if enough interest is around) and play as the people of the Pokemon world, having lifestyles like trainers, breeders, Pokemon nurses, gym leaders, and etc. . You would be free to explore, not bound by a pushing towards a goal by your standard "evil teams" although you can still journey if you please. You can interact as teams, friends, posses and even form "evil teams" if you wish. The choice is up to the character.

          Idea 3:

          The characters start out by surviving a plane crash. The land on a un-settled island, the only presence being the animals that inhabit this tropical jungle above the ocean and you, the ones who survived the crash. All you have is what was on your person and the plane. Realizing that help may still be a long time away, you decide to create shelter on the island, hoping to survive until you found help. The characters would be normal people who have found themselves cast off. It is your responsibility as a group, or alone if you choose, to get enough to eat, enough water to drink, and get a shelter over your head.

          Anyways, do you as the community think any of these would work? If so, which one(s)?

            Hey, the third one sounds like the Lords of the Flies RP you had brought up a few months ago!

            Still really interested in that kind of RP, always love a good RP based around the concept of survival. The other ideas are good too, but the third one is the best imo.

            HELLO! I'm the moderator of the Roleplay Corner and I welcome you with open arms! :D :D :D

            Like dearest Red said, it's always great to see new faces and new talent! If you have any questions about anything, I'm usually the best person to ask, but I'm sure any of my lackeys are happy to help as well (like they've said ;D). And I'm a cool girl guy too so if you just want to talk about anything, y'know... *thumbs up*.

            @WestsideConnection Harvest Moon RPs will probably never work, imho. Perhaps Rune Factory because they usually have an underlying storyline but Harvest Moon? Nooope. D:

            *skulks back to homework*

            I like idea 2. It'd be like normal everyday life. & an RP with all regions, one at a time, who wouldn't wanna try that? :D I'd join that anytime!

              @WestsideConnection: I think the problem with this is that there's a rule against making RPs that literally have no plot and/or end.

                yeah i feel like a massive shmuck writing this, but anyway may as well.
                Are there any pokemon RP's that still have sign ups? I really want to join one, but all of them already seen pretty established.

                    @AshenhartKrie Hey there! There are plenty of RPs around and all you have to do is find one you like and go onto the OOC and ask if there are anymore spots available. Most RPs have open spots and are always open to new players. The GM of a RP will be able to coordinate with you on how to enter the RP. Browse around or you can just wait for a new RP to be posted in this thread. Either way you want to go. If you need help you can PM anyone here. Welcome to the RP Corner!

                    @AshenhartKrie: Pokemon Fallout and Pokemon Trainer Academy are both currently open for sign-ups, and while the latter is very well established it's a sandbox RP, which means there hsouldn't be any reason you can't jump in in the middle. c:

                      @Meganium90, Greiger, and Skymin: Hooray for the warm welcomes~ :3 Thank you so much, guys. ^^

                      @WestsideConnection: I also think Rune Factory would be more role-playable than Harvest Moon. Then maybe Pokemon can take the role of the monsters there.

                      I think VR may have closed sign ups, but definitely ask Red if you're interested.

                      I was thinking this morning that maybe I should reopen that critique thread. Red had it up when she was moderator but closed it because of dis-interest. Because people seem rather keen on improving and critiquing others, what are your guys thoughts on it? It would be a "only comments on how to make it better" rather than a "would you be interested in this plot" since thats what the discussion thread is for.

                          But isn't that kind of PTA? From what I've seen of the RP, the plot has literally been lost in whatever interactions the RP has lived on for the past few months. Plus, I'm pretty sure it seems to fulfill the requirements to be a "casual" RP.

                          I'm not too sure, the problem last time around that been that even though there was a separate thread, people continued to use the RP Discussion thread. So I'm not really sure whether the thread would work, but I guess there's no harm in trying.

                          @DeepImpact: ...N-No. Character interaction was part of the plot to begin with... It's called being non-linear. See: Mass Effect, Kotor, and every other game with multiple endings. The actions of characters in the roleplay affects the ultimate outcome. The plot on both the IC thread and OOC thread has always hinted at a finale involving Team Rocket... who currently have at least a dozen child-spies in the academy that are actively trying to figure out why the world's most powerful trainers are all gathered on an island to teach as of a week or two ago. Said spies may also attempt to recruit students into Team Rocket, only unlike on the bridge above Cerulean City there's nothing stopping a character from saying yes.

                          Also, casual? What the heck, dude? ಠ_ಠ

                          ...Hmm. There's no such thing as a casual roleplay, only 'casual' mindsets--And I dare say some of the best roleplayers in the world are casual. RP isn't necessarily a competition, so you don't necessarily need to be 'hardcore' to be great at it. In fact, the competitive mindset has a tendency to impair someone's ability to RP to the best of their ability. =/ However, in contrast, the cooperative mindset has a tendency to impair someone's ability to improve themselves. Neither is... perfect.

                          I personally like the terms competitive and cooperative, because they're slightly more accurate words to describe the mindsets in question.
