RP Olympics sound so interesting! I'm as excited as the actual Olympics starting today. :D I have a bit more time by then so I'll be sure to be there. :)

      Anyways, I plan to attempt a non-Pokemon RP, this time with a original world created by me. (and any interested Co-GM's, wink wink) I would have something written down by now, but I'm having trouble deciding a certain era or setting to use in order to sculpt my world. So I will leave some choices, and if the RP Corner wants to be a lamb, could give your preferences please.

      Different setting options:

      • Wild West
      • Realistic Medival
      • Fantasy Medival
      • Tribal
      • Modern
      • Renaissance
      • Futuristic

      If it wouldn't inconvienience you, could you please submit your preference of era in order for me to create a new RP with.

      Thanks in advance.
      I'm just going to put this here. Just to let 'chall know.

      @EliteKiller I think I would go with Tribal, since there is nothing like that around here at all.

        EliteKiller: Ahhh! Please do a renaissance rp! That would be awesome.

        Tribal would be next best, at a short second. Its a pretty unique idea too.

        My Kid Icarus RP might me more than I can handle. Does anyone feel interested in being a Co-GM to help me out?

        I just realized these are the first RP Olympics I'll ever join! Are these the first RP Olympics to be hosted?

        I've never heard about a previous one. I'd guess they are the first, yes.

        Hello everyone! I realize we didn't provide a lot of information about the Roleplay Olympics to you, but we'd like to keep most of it a bit of a surprise when it finally does come out. However, we decided to give you a bit more information about it, and to hopefully answer your questions.

        The idea itself came from an earlier idea Ichiro had, but never quite followed through on. While looking through some stuff about the London Olympics, Raikiri, The_Original_Raitan and I decided to try something new like this around here. The idea of it is that it will replace this quarter's RPAs, and instead we will be doing this event. If the event proves successful this year, we will try to make it a usual thing once a year. This is the very first Roleplay Olympics (RPOs)!

        The RPOs are much like the regular Olympics. You participate in certain events for medals (in this case emblems). Instead of testing your physical prowess like the Olympics, the RPOs are all about Roleplaying. There will be multiple categories/events which you may sign up for, and therefore participate in, all of which involve writing of some sort. On August 1st, the events will be displayed in a thread, and you will have a week's time to sign up for them. In order to participate in that category/event, you must sign up for it! You may participate in as many events as you like. There is no limit!

        A panel of 5 people will judge each piece of writing in every their event. Judges are interchangeable in every event, so if you would like to participate as a judge for any of the events, you may do so. However, you may not sign up for an event of which you are a judge.

        Note that absolutely ANYONE can participate in the Roleplay Olympics. Anyone on PC has that right.

        There are four possible emblems to be acquired in each event. Like the Olympics, there is the standard Gold, Silver, Bronze emblems that you can receive for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. However, if you merely participate in the RPOs, whether in one event or all of them, and whether you win or you don't, you will receive a participatory emblem nonetheless!

        Sounds interesting, well, I'm game. I'm not a big fan of August, but this'll be worth waiting for.

        Yeah, Supervegeta and Raikiri and The_Original_Raitan were all yelling at me, so I was like, "hey, sure, whatever, sounds awesome!"

        I'd really wanna invite people from Fan-Fiction when it starts up since it is all about writing, but they have no discussion thread like we do. So, when it starts up, feel free to invite any of your PC friends to join. ;D

            @Elite Killer; a renaissance + fantasy medieval type of role-play would be a lot of fun in my opinion.

            I've been having an idea for a role-play that's also non-Pokemon, well two ideas, but I can choose one over majority votes/suggestions of others and one sort of relates to Pokemon. This might sound weird, but it's in fact a crossover of two games, much like a fanfiction.

            The first idea was a Fire Emblem + Legend of Zelda cross role-play.

            The second idea was a Legend of Zelda + Pokemon cross role-play. The idea in this is that the Pokemon world is in Legend of Zelda-esque, and the monsters of Legend of Zelda are replaced by Pokemon. So, for instance, Dinalfos would be let's say Krookodile, and Aerolfos are Archeops. A select amount of humans (or hylians, or whatever species you want to be based from Zelda) would have to group up, not immediately, but along the way. Each one would go into a dungeon near their hometown/village, to acquire a necessary key item that will pertain to the plot.

            This idea, I got from fusing Twilight Princess + Kanto & Unova regions fused together.

            Another "Zeldamon" idea was using Windwaker's Great Sea. Anyone remember the KoRL telling you that you can't sail over the border of the sea? He says something about "it's too dangerous to go this far, so let's turn back". Well, what if, beyond that point of the Great Sea, was in fact the Hoenn and Orre regions? (since it's the most water covered regions, and Orre practically has a giant ocean by Gateon Port).

            As for the Fire Emblem + Legend of Zelda idea, well it's a huge idea that I don't I could get down because I'm really excited.

            I know these probably sound weird and probably one of those "impossible" ideas, but maybe fans of either series and such could give feedback or anything? I just thought something different can/could be done.

              @Skymin I completely agree with you about the Fan-Fiction thing.

              Yeah, it's gonna be pretty awesome if I do say so myself. I really hope the RPO's come out well.

                Perhaps you can tell Astinus or bobandbill to make an announcement, that way everyone in FF&W could know about the RPOs.

                I'd like to join those RPOs, even when I know me and my crappy english will be crushed :P

                  Well the RPOs certainly sound like they could be fun, but I'm still confused about it. I mean, it seems like it'll be more of a fan-fiction contest than a role-play contest, so how exactly does it qualify as RPOs?

                  (Not that it matters much to me since I'm going for the gold :P)

                  You bring up a valid point, and while quite a bit of the events are in fact more like fanfic, there are a few in which more than one person can participate, which is more like RPing.

                  That is why we encourage people from the Fan-Fiction to participate as well, as this is more of a combination of fanfiction and Roleplaying.

                    Thanks for everyone who voiced their opinions on my question, I have made a decision to go with a Renaissance RP. I am in the beginning stages of a Renaissance RP, but it is sure to contain a blend of shocking and surprising twists, revolutionized conflict and tantalizing romance. Sounds good, doesn't it? Stay tuned here in the upcoming days for more.

                    On to the subject of the RPO's.

                    I am very interested in them, and will be joining and would be honoured to help judge them. I am very excited to compete alongside and against other RP'ers for emblems.

                    But, I have courage wolf training me so I will not be stopped.



                    (Ooh S***, I better show up good now)

                    Oh lord. If we invite the Fanfiction & Writing people to the RPO specifically, they might crush us with their grammar-mindedness and supergood spelling xD sure, good grammar is appreciated here but it's wayyy more important and pointed out over in our sister section. Or so I've understood it.

                    But at the same time, maybe we can lure some new good writers over to the RPing side of writing ;D

                      I'm not going to lie, the RPOs sound pretty sweet. And like Red said, it'd be a good way to get more RPers from fan fiction.I

                      Hey guys! I'm doing some RP-design and could use some feedback on what people think. The thing I am planning is an original RP, which obviously has the problem of an unknown setting, culture and wildlife, among other things.

                      At the moment I am sorting out the continent/map. I have settled on this style at the moment:

                      Spoiler:


                      Where I then break it down to sections which are labelled and explained. Such as the map below, which would then have a text saying: yadayadayadayadayada THIS TOWN1. And things like that (although it's much more two paragraphs than a line or blabber).

                      Spoiler:


                      Do you think that between the black map image, a description, and an image for each location when arriving there, that there is enough detail? I did originally make a colour map with mountains, rivers, etc. and all that but it ended up looking extremely... messy, especially when it comes to labelling. Realistically, it's also a pain to make the map realistic, with rivers every few yards, without making it overbearing.

                        Mark only the main rivers?

                        Personally, I do like seeing a map with more detail than just its coastline (outline). Try designating this areas with different color maybe? (Like green for forest, light blue or white for glaciers/tundra, tan for desert, rather than actually drawing out trees and mountains, etc…)

                        If it does get too messy, maybe you could use two maps, one for the city locations and one for ecosystems.

                        Perhaps if the main-map shows all the biomes/rivers, whilst the small maps are just black and show the cities? Think that might work better? :)

                          Role Play Olympics? ZOMFG, this will be extremely cool! I'm totally in on this! However, I can see how people from the Fanfic Corner will come and wipe the floor with a good amount of us... Well, at least me I presume.

                            I presume It'll be equal, I mean, yes, there's a lot of dudes with perfect grammar in FF&W, but y'all from the Role-Play Corner are creative as hell (I really mean it, I've seen how you develop your characters and how you set up your RPs, awesome, I must say).

                            And it's not all about the correct spelling and lack of any typos, I'm sure it'll be more about being creative during the RPOs :D
