      Umm.. not to be rude, but I think you could be having most of this conversation in VM's/PM's. The whole thread doesn't particularly need to see a post about you two being in the same family for a RP. I know that the discussing about the RP plot stuff is on topic, but you guys are getting off-topic.

      Question:

      Is anyone interested in a Journey RP in a custom region? Just inquiring, the theme would be more traditional journey, yet still hold uniquities. (is that even a word, if not I made it up)

        Yeah, I agree. Besides, It isn't even out yet.

        And to answer PS, I'm starting to write it now, though it could be any time between tonight and next week.

          The idea of a custom region is an interesting one, I'm sure you could easily come up with a map of a region to base the RP in, the only problem would like in whether you would be using the original Pokemon, or Fakemon. My advice would be to use Pokemon, since most people know and feel comfortable with them, Fakemon can be quite difficult.

            Going to launch a modified version of Pokemon Reversal...perhaps next week. Even Skymin says that it's very crazy so I'm so proud of myself :D
            xDD


            Anyway, question time!


            Do you normally like Roleplays that are totally different (as in crazily different, like an alternate world where things are opposite of what they are/a roleplay about dancing bears/anything that's totally random or impossible to happen) than others, or would you think that it's too weird and reject it? If it depends, then what do you like and what do you not like? Are there any guidelines, requirements or limits to what you like?

              I've been thinking about making a Young Justice Rp. Or someone can do it! Cause i'm really not that good with the story or stuff, I'll join if they made it or Co-GM the rp with them.

                Um, guys, it'd probably be better if you stopped discussing about a certain RP all the time, because honestly, a few of us aren't interested.

                anyways, I prefer Pokemon over Fakemon, always. I guess it's because I find it easier to use Pokemon because I'm familiar with them over Fakemon.

                *bows* But still, this thread is for developing ideas so it's ok to talk about a certain RP from time to time I'd say. Within limits.

                Nah. I like existing regions with a twist better. That way you'll be sure that there are places to go to, even though the roads and cities and other stuff might have changed.

                If you are going to make a custom region, make sure to really plan it out before you post the RP though. Both places, people and game mechanics. Otherwise the players might feel lost after a while, I think. I worked for a long time with Arcanum before posting it.

                No, I normally like a bit more non-crazy RPs. :][/FONT]

                  Yeah... I guess i'm getting a little annoying with my spam messages all the time and talking bout a certain RP *read everything over just now* i apologize to everyone ^^;;; it must be very annoying to read all my messages all the time, not only for you guys, for Skymin as well. I don't think she likes it either that I talk so much, so I'll change it. please don't hate me~ lol

                    RCHP you had an extra '[/FONT]' at the back and '[/SIZE][/FONT]' in one of your quotes!

                    So you like normal ones more than specially crazy ones? XD Because I'm just trying to bring in something totally different (and maybe original)

                    Haha yeah, I messed something up somewhere but it's not my fault, it's all these people with their massive post formatting ;p

                    It wasn't easy to understand your long question earlier, Equinox, but from what I collected... I'd rather just play through a trainer journey than an RP about dancing bears.

                    Your Reversal idea is really great though! I've seen the RP now and it's not as crazy as I thought it would be (that's a compliment ;) ) it actually makes sense and sounds quite exciting.

                          A decent amount of RPs will probably be out in the next 2 weeks. (:

                            I'm currently making an RP based on Ancient Johto, similar to Pokemon Conquest.

                              There's one. Then the declined RPs will soon be accepted when they're fixed so that makes at least 5 new roleplays in the next few weeks. Oh and there's my new upcoming roleplay - Pokemon Reversal which has a very, very unique background and fun plotline. I'm sure the others are all planning on newer things as well. Summer's here, and things are getting active again. (:

                              I've been thinking about making a Young Justice Rp. Or someone can do it! Cause i'm really not that good with the story or stuff, I'll join if they made it or Co-GM the rp with them.
                              There's another one.

                              Is anyone interested in a Journey RP in a custom region? Just inquiring, the theme would be more traditional journey, yet still hold uniquities. (is that even a word, if not I made it up)
                              Maybe that one too.

                              That one as well.

                              That one's pretty new, and Supervegeta's Roleplays are all decent to me (:

                              hmmm... I think I will stick with my current RP for awhile ^^;; I don't see a reason to make a new one, I'm already creating the KH RP I promised though, but I will submit this RP a little bit later, to make sure people have the time to join this RP and to make sure it won't die. I think it'll be submitted around july/september/august.
                              Don't forget that one!

                              My point is - You won't have to worry about having too few roleplays to participate in!

                              Meanwhile... -dances like the guy in my siggy-

                                Let's see... Pokemon Fallout is still going strong, though we're currently small. Here's basically everything you could ever want to know!~ ...except the rules and more info on the settings and stuff like that, which you can find on the RP's OOC thread here: Pokemon Fallout (OOC/SU)

                                How Combat Works
                                Spoiler:
                                There is no leveling here. Instead you'll be left to your own devices to write your character maturing combat-wise at your own pace. Or not. Nobody said you had to rise up and be the ultimate warrior. Use your imagination! Fighting is freeform and once again you can use your imagination here. All pokespirit wielders are stronger, faster and more durable than regular humans by default. Evolution is mostly cosmetic here with the exception of a growing movepool, and most spirits won't evolve through combat at all. (Meaning you get to choose if they do or don't.)

                                You can either agree to the outcome of a fight beforehand or let the GM(s) be the judges and improvise. If it is determined that you have lost a deathmatch, meaning the loser is finished off, you may work with the GM(s) to see what can be done about perhaps having your character miraculously survive (unlikely) or how you can continue being a part of the roleplay. If the victor does not attempt to finish the loser off, it is not a deathmach.

                                The nature of pokemon attacks denotes they are very difficult to dodge without having an evasion type move of some sort. If you frequently dodge attacks listed as having 100% accuracy with no justification you /will/ be called on god modding. In addition, you shouldn't be able to take many direct hits unless there's a type resistance at play or other defensive move. No pokemon is that tanky to just shrug off attacks without doing anything to protect themselves.

                                Lastly, HM moves do not exist and instead pokemon that are capable of learning the moves can simply do them without wasting a move slot.


                                Plot
                                Spoiler:
                                When Ghetsis was defeated atop N's castle most people had assumed N's dream had not only been doomed never to see the light of day, but abandoned by N himself. Team Plasma was a broken shell of its former self, its members in hiding or prison and it's sages having more or less accepted their failure. Team Plasma never recovered, and so the crisis was thought to have passed.

                                ...However, what nobody had seen coming was that N's dream lived on not through N, nor Team Plasma, nor even Ghetsis, but through their admirers. A group of radicals operating low-key as scientists pursued to succeed where N had failed through their own, far less innocent methods. They sought to engineer something that could break the mysterious bond between man and pokemon under the guise of trying to understand it; and so they did.

                                First, they created a formula that could break the bond, and through further study they were able to initiate a kind of biological warfare unlike anything anyone had ever seen before. A virus was released which could infect and attack pokemon, removing their ability to develop or maintain bonds with their trainers or others in general.

                                The worst had yet to come however. From atop his celestial perch Arceus was not unaware of this act against... well... itself! From the dawn of the pokemon they had been meant to be companions to humans. Who dared commit such a crime? Arceus looked out and saw that the world had become uninhabitable for pokemon to live without losing their gift and was enraged. Just like that, he took back the gift of pokemon entirely. Pokemon rapidly began vanishing off te face of the earth, their spirits being recalled to a place not even the virus could reach them.

                                ...And what of the humans? Humanity was alright, for a short time. There was great panic and with good cause however as humanity became intimately aware of how much it had depended on pokemon. Everything from the police, to rescue teams, to hospitals, to farmers, /everything/ had depended on pokemon to some degree. Without pokemon, some of these things were made impossible or obscenely difficult compared to before.

                                Crime ran rampant. Without pokemon there was no meat, and the produce supplies were quickly diminished. Humanity as a whole quickly devolved into chaos as people were forced against a rock and a hard place. In the end, humanity itself was nearly wiped put, though as the population declined it became easier for individuals to survive. Unspeakable horrors were committed in the name of life or death and a new era of depravity was formed. Children were the target of much hate, as well as those whom had them, humans beginning to looking at them as no more than extra mouthes to feed. Humanity eventually managed to stabilize itself, however. It was broken, but not down and out. Not even the scientists who had caused the catastrophe had been immune to the consequences, as they had no idea how dire said consequences would be.

                                It was not truly the apocalypse, however. Some of humanity stood strong to their morals even as demise was upon them. Though they were often crushed under the boot of the horde their stands did not go unseen. Arceus eventually found it in itself to seek a remedy to the situation, to spare a shred of mercy. Using its awesome power, Arceus restored the pokemon in a new form, that of which not even the virus could hope to corrupt. A quake of unimaginable power shook Mt. Coronet and tore it asunder. Yet, from the gaping wound in the earth erupted a giant crystal formation. The crystal shimmered with divine power and from it the spirits of the pokemon returned. From then on, children from the ages of 10 to 13 would feel drawn to the site, wherein the spirit of a pokemon would choose them and fuse with them, giving the child the ability to take on some of the features of that pokemon and access to that pokemon's powers.

                                In addition, a large stone tablet rose with the formation, upon which was carved the words "BRING YOURSELVES TO JUSTICE" in plain English as well as several commandments in a language that only pokemon spirits can read.

                                The commandments read as followed, and pokemon spirits are not only allowed but encouraged to tell their human host:

                                "The world has been broken, and it is humanity's fault."
                                "It is up to you to bring justice to yourselves and the world."
                                "You must guide yourself, however..."
                                "These are the laws of Arceus!"
                                •"Let yourself be washed of your moral preconceptions. From the first time you've read these commandments, let them be your only laws. Then and only then allow yourselves to rediscover what you believe is right or wrong."
                                •"You shall not harm the spirit of the pokemon, lest divine retribution strike."
                                •"You shall be in possession of no more than six pokemon spirits at any one time, lest your spirit become suppressed."
                                •"If you take the spirit of the pokemon from another you must take it for your own, lest it turn on you."
                                •"You shall not harm children under the age of fourteen that have not yet received their pokemon spirit."

                                It's now up to these children to change the world for better or worse. What will you fight for, and ultimately what will become of humanity and the world they live in?


                                Who are you?
                                Spoiler:
                                You play one of the children gifted with a spirit of pokemon. Some of the adults would like to enslave you for work purposes, and the world is still rather chaotic. Your goal is either to bring the world out of it's depraved state, rule it, or whatever your character wants. The only thing that stands in the way is the other children that aren't on your side. Your pokemon spirits are there to guide and support you either way, as all of them can communicate with their human host mentally.

                                In addition to being able to fuse with your pokemon spirit and take on their powers and some of their features you have the ability to absorb the pokemon spirits of defeated opponents, and if you're more cruelly inclined you can even absorb the life energy of defeated others themselves, in which case they would perish and their physical form be converted into pure energy. In a world without any creatures besides humans and very scarce edible plant life you may find that it doesn't take an evil lunatic to resort to... unorthodox methods of obtaining subsistence. That being said, it may be important that your character know when to run to avoid such a fate.

                                You may optionally sign up for a normal human if you so wished, or even one of the nefarious adults. However, you should be warned that without a poke spirit you will be mostly helpless if confronted by someone wielding one.


                                To summarize, Pokemon Fallout is an extreme sandbox RP where your character, a human fused with the spirit of a pokemon which grants them a part pokemon appearance and pokemon powers, has the power in their hands to change the world as they see fit. The only thing standing in their way? Others like them, called pokespirit wielders. The RP takes place in Sinnoh, approximately a century after pokemon have vanished off the face of the earth, resulting in the death of most of humanity which had simply depended far too much on pokemon. There are no levels and you have extreme flexibility in how you can customize your characters. A standard move limit of 6 is set, but even that is flexible so long as it is not deemed godmodding whilst I review your SU.

                                There are a number of NPC 'bosses' that are considered the major mortal power holders, all with different ideals, personalities, and of course pokemon spirits. The RP ends when the world is changed for better or worse in a fittingly irreversible way. You could purge the earth of the remaining humans, or you could fight to suppress those that would do so whist appealing to the lord thy god Arceus for more help. You could also attempt to purge the world of the 'pokemon liberating' virus, which still contaminates the very air you breath. Your motives are your own and there is no linear plot to push you along. One thing is for sure though; survival will not be guaranteed in a world where humanity has devolved into a amoral state where only those willing to force their way to survival do so.

                                Should you choose your own direction however, you will have your very own Yellow to help guide you with NPC characters and help as needed. (Complete with free lifetime warranty should you damage your Yellow using her as a blunt weapon in combat.)



                                Advertising aside, I thought up a topic that... y'know, actually warrants a discussion instead of just a question to be answered. (I'll post the answer to my own topic later.)

                                How long does it normally take you to write posts? Why do you think it takes you as long as it does? Do you feel like you post too slowly or too quickly? What could you do to increase the frequency of your posting, theoretically? Got any advice for others on how to handle their posting habbits?

                                    I'm kinda a slow writer. An average post takes me around 20-30 minutes? I'm not pretty sure since it differs, really. Some people can make a gigantic post in just 15 xd I guess I'm slower because I always try making the sentences sound better after writing them out. I always try polishing the posts to make it look an also sound good.

                                      Anything from 15 minutes to an hour and a half, depending on what I want to do and how distracted I get. Sometimes, if I have to write something that requires a lot of thought (like battling - not only do we have to write it but choreograph it in our heads which can be exhausting), I'll take longer. Dialogue on the other hand, comes pretty quickly.

                                      I believe that I am somewhere in between, but that it also depends on the role play. If I'm involved in dialogue then I'll post quicker to keep it flowing, and if it's more solo stuff then I'll go slower, matching the pace. I think that's a fairly good way to do it, but then I could be wrong. XD

                                      For others... Quality over quantity for sure, but don't feel pressured to write a massive post, even if people are talking about how they've just written a X,000 word one. Post when you want, but try to think about whether you really need to post. If your character has nothing to do, get them doing something but make it interesting - insert their persona into everything they do. You might find you have loads more to say about them, and you might even learn something too.

                                      ... Those are my two cents anyhow. Good question Yellow, I always try to come up with stuff but it's always too generic and not as thought provoking.

                                      How long does it normally take you to write posts? Why do you think it takes you as long as it does? Do you feel like you post too slowly or too quickly? What could you do to increase the frequency of your posting, theoretically? Got any advice for others on how to handle their posting habbits?

                                      It takes me about 15 minutes to 2 hours to write a post. Mostly 'cause there are other stuff I'm doing in my life. Definitely too slowly, since I try hard to think what I should include in my post. Don't know how I can increase the frequency of my posting, theoretically, whatever that means. No advice, sorry.
