Welcome to the RP DCC!

In the Roleplay Theatre, we discuss various topics related to roleplaying, in depth. In the Roleplay Stage, we act out our adventures and in Roleplay Casting, we discuss character shipping and plan ahead together with the other people in the same RP. But where do we go to just chillax together with the other regulars of the RP forum, even the ones we are not RPing together with?

One answer is: Skype! We have a public Skype group where you can come in and casually get to know other roleplay interested people in an "instant message" fashion. Access it easily here - http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?p=9109503#9109503


But if you're not feeling the Skype groove, or want to chit-chat closer to the forums, this thread is for you. Come here and kick back and discuss or joke around with your fellow RPTheatre regulars. Are you a new face in the Theatre? Come in and say hi! We don't bite, rather we can surely give you a warm welcome and help you find your way!

To clarify - you don't need to talk about RPing all the time here, just like you don't really talk about RPing all the time in the RPT Skype chat, unless RPing is on your mind at the moment. However, if a moderator steps in and tells you to change your behavior in any way, please respect that. (;

Any questions or concerns, please contact adventure, gimmepie or aeternum.



To start things off! Do you have any RP posts you feel like you should be doing right now? I have two SUs and two IC posts I need to make, haha. I should... Probably go and do those (8

Mostly I'm posting here to see if my new theme looks like crap or not.

But yeah, I have like a million RP things I should be doing that I just haven't had the energy to do. I'll get there though!

Edit: Yup, avatar is too colourful. Need to fix that.

I, uh, just mentioned both of the things I'm in. I reeeaaally wish I could sign up for Sekirei though. Alas, I couldn't in good conscience do it.

I'm actually looking forward to that one RP Godzil said he might do. The Pokemon Journey without trainers. It just has some of my favourite elements in an RP all thrown together. :D

You have to start somewhere. Just start writing and think about the characters and try to see them react to things in your mind, and then type it out.

WE'RE ALL FRIENDS HERE
I have no idea to write at all. I just kinda stuck.
Happens to the best of us. A break from writing might help. I actually think roleplaying is a great way to transition into solo writing, since I've been falling behind in the latter, but posting in Cornered, for example, really helps to prevent writer's block. Maybe do the reverse? Try to write on your own and then transition back into writing in the Theatre.

Ya'll know what RPs I'm in, they're in my signature. Though, honestly, I think I'm gonna drop out of Great Expedition. I love the concept, I love my character, but when I can't name another apprentice that I think fondly of other than Ivan, that's a problem. Whether it's my problem or not, I don't know; I could have potentially psyched myself out of it from the very start. But I really shouldn't be taking a solo, psuedo-sandbox approach to an RP supposedly about collaboration and working together, especially when my character is meant to be the affable one. That's what I feel will happen if I don't get re-motivated again.

You guys ever had a roleplay that you can't bring yourself to contribute too, even if there are certain aspects you love?

*looks so incredibly sadly towards Trumpets*

I think it had too many players for my taste, in the end. But journey RPs are bae. Z will be a cool one.

I find that this happens to me a lot in sandbox RPs. I get really excited about the setting and my character and all the possibility... but then I lose motivation because there's nothing for my character to react to or drive them forward. I keep making the same mistake whenever a really interesting sandbox RP pops up even though I know I'm not a sandbox person. ;____;

Looks sadly towards every RP I'm not currently part of But actually I really liked the concepts of I Am and Vale but there was just no way I would be able to find the time to post in that if I managed to even make it in to either one. My one hope is that PMD comes back soon, that RP was/is bae.

What are some RPs or specific RP ideas that you wish would get revived?

TITANS. TITANSTITANSTISNSJD


Well to be fair, I actually enjoyed "superpower" RPs better when my character was a rather normal person just happening to have gotten a power, rather than when we were expected to actually be superheroes, as in Titans. But Titans was just amazing for many other reasons.

I might enjoy a setting akin to Guilded Halls or Atlantis more (: Where we play regular people having been struck with-
brb writing up a Heroes RP idea.

Which I'm not going to GM, but perhaps I can convince someone else to GM it for me ahah.

Okay, I know they're considered all tacky and Mary Sue-ish now, but honestly? I looooved RPs involving Legendary Pokemon and "chosen people". Whether these people got the powers of/from the Legendary, or they got their own Legendary for some epic quest, I thought it was just a ton of fun. xD RPs seem to tend towards the gritty gloom and doom nowadays, but I love campy unrealistic things the most, I think.

;_________; Maybe one day, Ozy. I just don't have the consistent free time that I would need to be able to dedicate to it the way it deserves. Vale was a huge stretch for me, even.

The thing about sandboxes is that you need a hype GM to get everyone into the posting mood. If they just fling you into situation with all the information you need and go on vacation, eventually things are gonna grind to a halt when people start losing that bright-eyed excitement that they applied with.

Returning roleplays are good and great when they're treated like they're brand new. When everyone in the old game joins as their original characters and get accepted immediately because "they worked last time!" and the new people whose eyes were caught by the flashy idea are turned down for these oldie goldies instead... In that case, you might as well go that old Pokemon sky pirate RP's route and just decide the cast beforehand.

Why don't more RPs do that? Don't get people's hopes up. There's one roleplay in-particular that was very biased about its cast selection to the point where I doubted that they wanted new players in the first place.
