    Would anyone be interested in an RP where you are a human in control of a dragon? I'll post more details once I get the plot more organized.

      Well Danger on the S.S. Anne has a few spaces left at the moment ;) RPs do tend to fill up quite quickly at the moment. Especially those with only a few spaces in the first place.

      Hmm I think more details are needed! Could work pretty well though, as long as the dragons can all be quite different to each other and there's a sound story around them.


      How do you create your characters? Do you base them off something? Do you get a appearance set then work off that? Etc.

      I tend to base my characters of one trait or profession, but try to warp them to make them less predictable. Try to break some stereotypes without overdoing it. I prefer to think about original appearances, although sometimes I may base a face/hair off an image so it's easier for myself and others to picture them. I like creating their own clothing though to match their personality.[/SIZE]

          This will probably sounds like a very stupid question...

          *Deep Breath*
          Buuuuuuut

          I'm looking to join an RP. I used to get involved with tons when I was a regular poster here about 5 years ago, but the whole system seems to have changed. I've re-read the rules, and the huge thread on RP Etiquette, but the one thing I can't seem to work out is how to sign up, I've looked down pretty much the whole list (Excluding ones with tons of posts that are obviously filled up and well into production) But even the threads with 1-10 posts don't have the sign up sheet on the front page.

          I'm guessing I'm just confused cos back in the day when I was here more, an RP would begin on the same thread that had the sign ups at the beginning, whereas it looks to me now that once sign ups are complete they are deleted and the first post in the GM opening the story?

          Assuming this is correct, the only reason I can't find an RP to sign up for is because there currently aren't any xD

          But some clarification on this would be appreciated!

            You're probably looking in the IC threads. A lot of GMs only put the SUs in the OOC thread in the RP Lounge, so if you want to join an RP, find the thread with the same name in the Lounge.

                  What I currently have planned for the dragon RP:

                  I'm probably going to call it Fargona, after the name of the world where it will take place. I'm still working on creating the world. Each person will start with at least one dragon (the max will probably be 3). Scattered about the land are arenas where people pit their dragons against each other in battles in which the winner is rewarded a prize, usually gold. The idea I'm currently working on for the plot is that someone is killing off dragon masters and stealing their dragons.

                  I have come up with a list of dragon species that will be in the RP. More may be added to this list. I am currently working on descriptions for each species:
                  Amphisbaena
                  Bakunawa
                  Basilisk
                  Celestial
                  Chimera
                  Drake
                  Fae
                  Gargoyle
                  Hydra
                  Manticore
                  Quetzalcoatl
                  Tatzelwurm
                  Tiamat
                  Wyrm
                  Wyvern

                  If anyone still wants to know more, I'll add more when I'm further along in making the plot.

                  Hrrm. I like the idea of dragons, but the story at the moment seems like a bit of a cop out - since it's very much 'Pokémon-without-Pokémon'.

                  I think a dragon RP will work better with a deeper, original story - Dragons are often mythical and magical beings with almighty power. It may be interesting to go along that route - rather than having them battle each other pose them more as knights, battling the evil (perhaps sorcerors?) which seeks to take away the dragons.

                  It would be an interesting spin, since usually knights are the slayers of dragons rather than partners. I would say, again to make it less like Pokémon, each player should have strictly one dragon. That makes them rarer - why would anyone want to steal dragons when there seems to be loads?

                  Hope that made sense and gives a few things to think about :3.

                    I was thinking about that, but if people only get one dragon each then the Fae would likely never get chosen because it's only about the size of a sparrow. But then again, it's still powerful, so I could probably change it to one dragon each... Dragons aren't supposed to be incredibly rare in this world, but I see your point about the arenas... It shouldn't be to hard to change.

                    What you said actually gave me an idea: Many humans can tame dragons, but only certain humans have the rare ability to create a bond with their first dragon. This causes their first dragon to listen to them without question, and the dragon and master can communicate with pictures and emotions, but not with actual words. Any other dragons must be tamed the normal way, which is much more difficult. Even fully trained dragons don't always listen to their masters.

                    If you still think it would work better with each person to only have one dragon, then I'll probably

                    Your question about why someone would steal dragons when there are so many is something I can't answer. It would give to much away~

                    To replace the arenas, dragon masters could instead be knights as you suggested, wandering adventurers, thieves, farmers.... anything, really. Dragons could easily have uses in many different occupations in medieval times.

                    One species I didn't think of adding before is Longma, which is rather silly as horses are my favorite animals and usually the first things I think of XD And the Kirin is also being added to the list of species.

                      How do you create your characters? Do you base them off something? Do you get a appearance set then work off that? Etc.

                      It really varies. Sometimes I use characters from stories I've thought up in a roleplay so I can get more familiar with them. (Like Kris from Valde Bellum and Lanhua from Arcanum) Usually these are minor characters that I'd like to get a firmer grip on. For most others I usually have an image of a character in my head that I really like. I'm a very visual person (which I need since I also do a lot of drawing) and in order to make a good original character I need to have a very good visual on them. These other characters usually come to me while reading the plot of a roleplay, especially when they have interesting settings. (Like Evie from Prelude)

                      So yes, I base them either of a pre-existing character for an original story or of a strong mental image.

                          Hey, umm, I am new here and am not sure just how to get a roleplay started here. I am an expert roleplayer and hope to put my first RP here: Time Exploration. Its when a secret area of the Kinleaf Forest has been discovered and the League Masters (roleplayers) have sent a team to investigate.

                          I probably should introduce League Masters first, shouldn't I?

                            First, welcome CJ! I would recommend looking at some of the rps already going on. Look at the lounge to see how to set up your own roleplay. When you submit the OOC thread you will need to talk about basic stuff like the setting, history, sign ups, etc. Depending on what else the roleplay has you can add important NPCs or other stuff that will be in the roleplay that the rpers will need to know. For introducing the league masters, you would do that on the thread you make and explain who they are to the rpers. If you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask.

                                  I've been looking at the non-Pokémon RPs in the IC section, and since I haven't been here long I was wondering a few things:

                                  Are you interested in non-Pokémon roleplay? Do you only join Pokémon roleplays?

                                  What is your favourite non-Pokémon roleplay?

                                  Would you like to see more original, non-Pokémon roleplays on PC? Or are you interested in roleplays based off other programs/games (IE Elite Killer's Elder Scrolls RP)?


                                  Any feedback would be great!

                                  I typically join Pokemon roleplays, primarily because... well... that was the idea behind coming here.

                                  Would you like to see more original, non-Pokémon roleplays on PC? Or are you interested in roleplays based off other programs/games (IE Elite Killer's Elder Scrolls RP)?

                                  Not really. We seem to have quite a large selection of them already. Y'know, I think I'm pretty chill with how things are right now, actually.

                                    Are you interested in non-Pokémon roleplay? Do you only join Pokémon roleplays?

                                    Generally, no. The reason I roleplay here is because of the Pokémon roleplays. I mean if I see a solidly done ancient history roleplay then by all means I'm game. But anything else is not really interesting to me.

                                    Would you like to see more original, non-Pokémon roleplays on PC? Or are you interested in roleplays based off other programs/games (IE Elite Killer's Elder Scrolls RP)?

                                    I'd love a killer ancient history roleplay haha. But yes, besides that it's just not my thing.

                                      Are you intressed in non-Pokémon roleplays? Do you join them?

                                      Yes i am intressed in them and i do join them :)


                                      can someone give me discriptions of the current roleplays that accept members? :) i still want to join one, just one because i have to work the rest of the week ^^ (except sunday, friday only from 5 pm to 9 pm) unless i'm really intressed in two then i'll consider joining two
