I have to agree with Synthet, I would personally prefer to see the return of the awards but this might just be because I don't quite get what these "RP Olympics" are.

Could you explain them? Perhaps you can change my mind (not that my opinion counts for much anyway).

If enough people would be interested in seeing it return, I could recreate the event, giving everyone more time to work on it ahead of time, and make new and better categories. Last year was a trial run, so this time we would be more prepared, and it could run a lot smoother.

    Let me know

    I for one would like to see the RPOs return. They were fun, and not really about winningbanything and just writing cool posts for different prompts

    You guys Supervegeta is just saying is that the RPAs were skipped this one quarter they're not getting rid of them all together and replacing them with the RPO. He's just wondering if you would be interested in the RPO, the RPAs aren't going anywhere for now. It's not an either/or situation. The next quarter, so next RPAs, (I believe) is November.

    If you aren't familiar with the RPO, this is the thread from last year. There are a number of events that you participate in (you can chose which ones) and there are judges that score them as well (so if you don't want to participate in the actual events you can still judge). It's a really fun event, where people put out some of their best pieces of work.

    Yeah, the RPOs were good fun! I had some good ideas to maybe make them this time around more RP-like and less fan-fiction-like.

    Of course, activity is something that we heavily rely upon to make the RPA/RPOs work, as well as suggestions and help from our community! So, if you have any ideas, please let me or Supervegeta know!

    If you guys are interested enough, it might be a good idea to start threading together some organisers!!

    Actually the RPO's don't look half bad - can we judge some events and compete in others? Or do we have to do one or the other?

    You can do both, although obviously not for the same event.

    I know that I judged a couple of a events last year and competed in some different ones. I think it's a great event, however (like Skymin said) we could do with making it more roleplay and less fanfiction.

    Include a Skype RPing event! Not like a competition, necessary, but just like a RPC get-together thing in the summer (or winter lol) and not necessarily related to PC's big get-together. Would seem nice to do it around the RPOs.

    Someone could create a premise and we'd all sign up with characters in a thread and agree on a date and time and then we'd make a group convo (or several to split it up if there were too many people joining) and RP it out, trying to stay IC and maybe discussing in the thread OOC. A turn list for players could be used and one liners would be okay!

    ? :>

      I was thinking about something similar to this a few days ago, actually. I'd do it (if I'm available, that is)

        This sounds like a very good idea. I would definitely join something like that c:

          Alright so I have a time frame for how long I'll be gone . I'm leaving on Monday and will be back around July 26th. Though I won't be able to post I will be checking PC whenever I get the chance so I know what's going on in all the RP's I'm in.

          I like the Skype Event type thing. I'd definitely be up for it, though perhaps we'd need to it happen at least two times in a 24 hour period? Seeing as not all of us are in the same hemisphere.

          The category of "Battle" from last year's RPO was good, we should definitely do that again because it was the most RP-like. I just didn't like the whole "signing up with a partner" bit, mainly because I didn't really know that many people. I think it would be fun to just do random match ups (if that's what you want), gives you a chance to RP with someone you might not have before and see how well you play off each other.

          I also like a continuation type thing, where a poster1/P1 would respond to a preset situation and then the next one (P2) who reply to it but also involving P1 posting as well, and so on. Except it would be a bit difficult because... well, you'd have to wait for the person before you to post to be able to make one. hmph.

          I thought it was a bit weird that the creators of the RPO didn't even participate in their own event? I'm sure you weren't judging every category... seems a bit unnecessary and anti-social ;p.

              The RPOs sound pretty amazing. Not gonna lie, but I'm a bit sad that this most recent quarter of RPAs was skipped. Lol, I was kinda wondering who would win best rookie Roleplayer.

              After talking to AlexOzzyCakes, I am thinking of resurrecting Starsprite's Synchronicity. I have VM'd for her permission, however I know she has a lot going on IRL and doesn't make it online very often at the moment.

              Anyway, the premise of the RP is that there is a tournament where trainers and their pokémon are teamed up with each other to test their compatibility. There was also an underlying plot, aside from the tournament, however not much of that was revealed in the last run.

              Is anyone interested in this team work themed RP?

              @ SwiftSign, the problem with teamwork themed RPs is that if one player goes inactive, the other will have a hard time continuing. Has happened in RPs before.

              Yeah, I believe he had a bit of an issue with that, however I'm thinking of ways to make the system flexible enough to take the hit. People may only be selected if they've been in other RPs, or been a member for over a month, to account for people running off :/.

              Also, I know people often get tied up about whos turn it is to post and whatnot, so I would be looking to pair people based on their timezone / online time rather than totally randomly.

              @Swift - It sounds like a really interesting RP, but I'd hate to see it go the way that Forsaken did. All the RPers in that were usually quite active and it was a great RP but it was closed in its dying throws because people couldn't keep active with continuous partner-related posts.

              Perhaps it would be better to base the 'synchronicity' on the trainer and their pokémon (in anticipation for something similar in X/Y). Means that if pairs are made they are more flexible, and perhaps only last for one event.

              Y/N?

              I've been considering making a civilization RP here based off of Pokémon. The world used will be original, and it will have its geography and all that.

              However, I will feel a lot more comfortable if I've got an experienced and active RP'er from here who is willing to help me GM this thing, just to help it run smoothly.

              Please note that I'm a somewhat experienced RP'er, and some of my favorite RP's in the past have been civ RP's. However, this is the first time I've created rather than merely participated in any sort of well-planned RP, in the several years I've been doing so. In light of this, please note that I'm specifically seeking those who have a good track record of creating successful RP's or otherwise GM'ing them.

              I'll pull the hard work in creating the RP, but I would very much appreciate creative support in creating events which will move the plot along during slow periods, creating NPC factions, and moderating the RP in general.

              Any takers?

              I'd be interested in a RP like that :D
              and a Suckerpunch one, but one seems to like taking risks with RPs of this sort :/

              I could help! :D
              I dunno how "successful" my RPs have been, but I've GMed a share of them.
              Plus I'm rarely inactive with no reason :p
              So... if no one who could do a better job (see: everyone else) offers, I'd gladly help out with whatever you want! :D

                Civilization RP as in...the computer game? That sounds interesting, but how would it work?

                Not the computer game. It's just an RP where you create a civilization and interact with other players. It may be vaguely compared with it, but the end goal isn't necessarily to dominate the world and wipe all others off the map.

                  Oh. Well...I'm still not sure how that would work. I'd have to see it I guess...

                  Hopefully it won't take long to get it up and running.
