Lately, I feel like I've become more and more interested in RPs with a strong focus on characters as opposed to an endless series of action posts. Although I'm perfectly happy to combine the two. Meanwhile, I've gotten kind of bored of the standard journey RP. That's a big part of why I finally got around to creating a spiritual successor for Cracks, I wanted to see a fresh take on journey RPs and more character focus, so I made it lol.
What about you? What sort of RPs are you currently interested in? How, if at all, have your tastes changed?
Can I just say... I'll let you know eventually?
I'm currently trying my hand at three different rps, and have no clear preference towards a certain kind of setting... but I'm currently interested by stories with great world building or interesting mechanics, where I can just put in my character and see what happens.
That of course encompasses both some personal development, but more importantly interacting with other players and with the environment that's around you. Plus I really like world building myself so there's that :3
Examples? Well, RPs with magic, trans-humanism and the likes, RPs with character interaction and joint posts, and in general crazy RP ideas ^^
The roleplays I'm in sort of do this in different ways: Trainers is just a more laid back experience with many joint posts to be made (maybe), Tocker Corp. is still a "familiar" Pokémon rp but, this time, with a particular setting - as far as I know, it's a top secret underground office, and finally the Yokai rp adds some actual magic powers on all of us players, plus an interesting connection between the real world and the yokai world.
I don't know. It seems my RP style makes others disinterested instead of me. Got banned from a discord server because someone didn't like how I Rped. TBH they weren't that good of an RPer themselves, but that's besides the point. I like playing thesetwo Roblox RP games where I can be whatever I want and nobody will have a problem with me making characters and never using them. Personally, I don't think I would be good at RPs but I like doing them so it really doesn't matter as much as I think it does.
I'm currently a Player in two RPs, (Three, if you count the spin-off RP based on one of the two RPs I'm in.) which are currently on break. They use the established FATE Core system, which uses a lot of Dicerolls to spice up the drama of the story. I love playing both, and with the system taking up the brunt of things, I can focus on writing my character and the story they're involved in.
As for a Free-Form RP... I wouldn't mind joining another Gijinka RP. It's been a while since I played one of those, and it's easier now to keep in contact with players with Discord. I'll probably join one if a new one pops up.
That said, I don't want to join any Gen 8 based RP. I don't have a Switch yet, so I don't want to hear anything to spoil my first experience of Gen 8.
