Nam-Not a bad idea. I'll consider it.

    I believe he means that even if you make a "What if" RP of Kingdom Hearts you would still have to sort out things like what has happened and what hasn't, whether everyone knows what a nobody is, or not. You still have to find a way to blend the RP into the canon story without making a paradox or something. I know what he means but I just can't find the words to explain it... ><" (at least I think I know)

    Edit: Remember Sora, Riku, and Kairi only ever have their powers because of their ties with Ventus, Terra, and Aqua. At least, that's what I understood. Sora shared his heart with Ven, Terra gave Riku his powers and Aqua cast some sort of spell on Kairi so help would find her whenever she was in trouble, etc. So the question is, how would we have the keyblade and how many people would have it? The keyblade graveyard had many keyblades embedded on its soil. Maybe we can play from that far in the past. Or play in the future where all the events had already ended.

    That's actually pretty close to what I meant. Depending on where the split from "Canon" (aka the official timeline, what you see in the games) and "Fandom" (in this case the RP) takes place, you're still going to have to note and deal with the complexities the story has already presented, anyway. Basically, no matter what, it's going to be difficult to do with without a lot of liberties by simplifying it.

    I was actually thinking of something like the past, where five children train under Master Eraqus. I'm starting to like the support here.

      @SD- you can also make it so that that the people who join are the reincarnations of Kairi, Sora, Riku, Aqua, Terra or Ventus~

        KH seems cool. I never played the games, but I know what it is about (basically, at least). If a RP was to be based on it, it would have to be the story that drove the RPers forward, I think. So think up something really complex with twists and turns :D


        I'm toying with the idea of (at some point, it's not like I have time now xD) making a journey RP that had unlimited spots and let people update their own teams, pretty much like PTA. People would go about the region in their own pace and could jump in at any time, interacting via joint posts when they felt like it and posting alone at other times. Since it would be a journey, it wouldn't be as loose and free as PTA, probably... the GM would set up chapters and toss in extra events now and then, to make sure that the players always had something to do and wanted to progress. It would be like... a single player RPG with multiplayer elements :3

          For Kingdom Hearts, I think the easiest to do would be something in the past where heartless and nobodies are still unknown -assuming you'd be using the unversed... If it were to take place in the future you'd have to work out how we got the Keyblades power.

          With your idea of working under Eraqus... how far in the past are we talking about? He doesn't look too old so Ventus, Aqua, and Terra would probably be newborns in our teen years. So I'd assume we'd have to go a little more back and have someone completely different from Eraqus. Also, I think you could have a little bit more than just five keyblade masters. Some of them will probably be evil and others will be good.

          P.S. Remember to reserve me for the good guys :3

          That seems cool. I don't know what PTA is though... xP
          But what about this: imagine a world where there is only adults in the streets doing business and serious atmospheres. A world with no fun and games because all the kids are locked up in their homes playing a new MMORPG. The kids are unaware of what happens on the outside world because all they do from the moment they wake up is go play the MMO until it is time to sleep. Perhaps they left for school on weekdays I guess, but they still only think of the game -or you could just make it so they're in vacation or whatever.

          Anyway, while they're playing the MMO and unaware the game suddenly manifests on the outside world; their world and all of them are coincidentally living in the same country, at the heart of everything -perhaps they must venture to the heart.

          Then again, maybe this is good only for other non-Pokemon RPGs... xD Why wouldn't you want pokemon to be real? They're nice... xP

          Anyway, I can see this type of idea work for virtually any RP.

            Remember the Keyblade graveyard in Bbs? You could do something prior to the Keyblade wars, where it was more common for there to be Keybearers; granted you'd be limited with Disney worlds because the stories of the earliest Disney movies were covered in BbS. Steamboat Willie would be a viable option, but if there are no Heartless/ Nobodies/ Evil Pete around then there's not much of a threat. If you set it before the events of BbS (and maybe Master Xehanort himself) then it would be less complicated.

              That idea is friggin' awesome and you should do it as in that was the best thing I have ever read. That idea is like when a baby dragon learns to fly-and breath fire at the same time. You should make this idea into a RP, and make sure Kanto (or new region, if that is what you prefer) is in it. :p

              P.S. You don't have to make it in Kanto, but you can if you please. (It's the best anyway)

                ._. Um, maybe I should let someone else do this Kingdom Hearts RP, like PinkSapphire.

                  Eh... I'd be very concerned that these 'single player' elements would be a large conflict of interest. You see one of the biggest things ever about RPing is that it's not single player, in fact that's fundamental to RPing as we know it, so going with this idea as is would alienate a large chunk of the userbase immediately on creation. (I question why I'm the only person who noticed this. Critique is valuable, yo)

                  That's disregarding the fact that the market for PTA-like RPs recently became arguably saturated...

                      machomuu-I've played Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, 358/2, Re:Coded. I've seen Kingdom Hearts (the first one), Re:Chain of Memories, & Kingdom Hearts II. I still haven't seen Birth By Sleep yet, still attempting to.

                      PS-I remember you were planning on making a Kingdom Hearts RP a while ago after Youkai Academy.

                      Rokusasu-Yeah, thing is, I'm not really that brilliant with idea's, most of which can be stupid. ;;

                        If you even attempt a KH RP, playing BBS is almost always mandatory, it's a pretty big part of the story (unless you do an Organization XIII RP, in which case you don't really need to), and chances are, once 3D comes out, it'll be mandatory, too.

                        @PinkSapphire: ...Nnno. There's several, and I wasn't pointing at any of them in particular. I don't really have the right to tell people not to anyway. It's more of an ethical choice.

                          Plus BbS is one of the best instalments in the series and can still make me blub like a little baby, even though it's been out for more than 18 months. Dat secret ending bro, hnnnngh.

                          @SD: So what if you think they're stupid? You need to give yourself more credit and have more confidence! If you're really that unsatisfied with something then you have two choices: see if you can iron the kinks out and make it better, or get rid of it. No point dwelling on something that you don't like - and you might even find yourself coming back to that idea at a later point in your writing/ role playing career (I say 'career' but I mean 'journey', the latter doesn't sound as good in a sentence though :P) and drawing even more things from it. So just be positive! c:

                          @Rokusasu Actually you may be giving him too much credit.

                          @SD I say if you really want to do it, then do it. You have that freedom. Most likely, it will inevitably screw up and fail anyways due to your 'inability to control yourself', or whatever the heck it is that's causing you to act like this all over this thread. I am slightly upset and highly annoyed that you refuse to get help that exists and expect everyone here to tolerate you instead of working hard like everyone else. You also constantly demand awards for doing exactly nothing as well as guilt trip people over ridiculous crud, and at the end don't understand why people get mad at you. Please either seek the necessary help you desperately need, or get your problems off of this board, because quite frankly, I'm tired of hearing them, and I believe others may be as well.

                            lmfao dude. Thank you, no further smartass comments from me.

                            Anyways, congrats to PTA for hitting that huuu-uuge mark. You guys have done well.

                            And congrats to Eevee and all members of Years of Lies for actually keeping that RP alive for so long! :D
