1. Well, anything really, though specifically, I kind of prefer the dumb kid who doesn't really know whats going on but tags along anyway.

2. I don't mind. If there is a good and bad guy situation, I prefer to be good because being a bad guy hurts me on the inside sometimes ";( though lately, my character Imogen in Atlantis has been real fun to play!

3. I guess it depends on the RP. I believe the GM should always be in a position of superiority so that they can control the story. There are some instances where players assume superiority and really should learn where they stand, I spose... but whatever the GM prefers.

4. I'd like to think so ;)

And whoa hey Swifty what DO I CALL YOU NOW?!??

    Oh hi, I'll be rping now.
    I've done oodles of text based rp before, a lot as chats, and a fair amount on forums.

    Welcome mucus, to the fabulous RPing section of PC, we are so much better than sliced bread :D
    Make sure to check the Roleplaying Library to see all currently active RPs with ease, the Rules to make sure what is yes yes and what is no no, and the Check to See Thread for whenever a new RP is accepted :] Overall, have fun, and don't hesitate to just randomly VM or PM people should you have a question or just feel like talking, this s a very friendly community so hopefully your stay will be enjoyable for as long as it is :D

    Thank you for all your answers, people. Let me answer my own questions now, as I forgot to do that...

    1. What kind of role generally entices you in an RP?
    I want my character to believe in something, and to share a powerful feature with the other players (Supervegeta's Gold Tribe, e.g.). More specifically, I think I'm attracted to lone wolf kind of guys, who are different than the pack that travels together, yet still a wolf like them. (Bloodthirster!)

    2. You want to have the option of being a good or bad guy, or is that situational with the RP you're applying for?
    Anything does for me. Each character, good or bad, has their beauty for me. It's not about being good or bad as it's come to be, it's about finding that certain something that makes them who they are. As for hurting others, I'm not sensitive. This is a story we're writing, that is by all means fictional. There's no room for conscience here if you want to make a realistic story.

    3. Do you think you should be equals with your fellow players IC, or superior and inferior roles are needed?
    I do think superior and inferior roles are needed, but if I was the GM, I would personally judge each people separately from their SUs to determine if they are fit for the role. I wouldn't like handing out a superior role to one who's not worth it and/or may get overboard.

    4. And if there was this kind hierarchy, would you be able to handle superior roles?
    Certainly, I can handle superior roles. I know what must be done and I have a clear sense of direction in each of the RPs I'm in (mostly mine xD), so asserting command would come easily to me. How much I would project that superiority over others is determined by what kind of character I would have IC, not by me.

    A word of advice: if you don't know how to handle superior roles, you are most probably not fit for a GM, unless you learn to.

      1. What kind of role generally entices you in an RP?
      Any, I do not mind roleplaying as the hobo or as the king
      2. You want to have the option of being a good or bad guy, or is that situational with the RP you're applying for?
      No I don't like an option of being bad or good I rather deep character development over time. i.e. Walter White from breaking bad XD
      3. Do you think you should be equals with your fellow players IC, or superior and inferior roles are needed?
      Yes depending on the Roleplay, and No depending again on the type of roleplay
      4. And if there was this kind hierarchy, would you be able to handle superior roles?
      Of course don't we live our lives with people who have superior roles, school teachers, boss', mothers etc. but if it's like a dictatorship/depotism I wouldn't mind it playing the jarhead

      Ray has made this awesome thread to help writers in the fanfiction section flesh out their characters - and he reckons it could be useful over here to!

      Why not give it a go, answer the questions provided for one of your characters - someone will then pose further questions and help you elaborate further, helping you get to know your characters.

        1. What kind of role generally entices you in an RP?
        I try to vary my roles in RP. Sometimes I'll play the quiet type, sometimes the obnoxious type, sometimes a perfectly normal person.
        As long as there is plenty of room for character development I feel enticed to play.

        2. You want to have the option of being a good or bad guy, or is that situational with the RP you're applying for?
        Situational.
        Though I usually play a somewhat good guy. Meaning a person who tries to be good, but might sometimes do bad things.
        I'm hoping to play an out and out bad guy soon though.

        3. Do you think you should be equals with your fellow players IC, or superior and inferior roles are needed?
        I really like if all members of an RP are equal.
        There of course needs to be a game master, otherwise progress is difficult or non-existant. But being a game master shouldn't make one player superior to others.

        4. And if there was this kind hierarchy, would you be able to handle superior roles?
        I usually wind up taking the role of game master, both because I can handle it, and because I kind of enjoy it.
        Actually, I am almost always playing game master in my RPs, so I'm hoping in these new ones I'm participating in I won't be doing that! ;)

        Dumb question, but serious question: what does SU mean?

        ^Sign-Up :3

        It refers to the character profiles created by a RPer when they join a Roleplay :]
        Name, Age, Gender, so on and so forth. The required fields are all specified within the Roleplay's first post :) Either in the OOC Thread or the IC Thread, both on some instances. And stuff.

        EDIT
        RPer=Roleplayer. Basically, the user playing a character in a Roleplay.
        RP=Roleplay. Self explanatory.
        OOC=Out of Character. Discussion on matters that do not really include actual posting.
        IC=In Character. Where one gets into their character and does the actual RPing :3

          That is quite funny. We should implement that usergroup on PC ;D But yeah, there's a lot of terminology but I hope it's not too tedious TEDIOUS to get into. You'll get the hang of it!

            and GM is game master. ;)

            i think quite a bit of the terminology is explained in the rules thread!

            So has anyone thought of implementing gen VI pokémon in their RPs yet? Or would you rather wait until more about the games is know, or at least more of the evolution lines?

            I thought people would try and sign up to the event RP with Gen 6 pokémon but nobody did! I guess it is because of the lack of information, move sets, evolutions, etc.

            One of my characters in the Age of Heroes is a Pangoro, Gen IV Pokemon. His type, dark, and his image were all I needed to make him. He's described as a bully, so his personality fits accordingly, only he's an honorable bully. :D

            here, I even drew him:

            1. What kind of role generally entices you in an RP?

            Any role, actually, if I have to. But when I get to choose, I usually like to take the role of the smart/tech/kid character role. I dunno, but it's what I fit in best.

            2. You want to have the option of being a good or bad guy, or is that situational with the RP you're applying for?

            Weeeellll, I can't really answer that question without a few "if"s and "but"s. I'd say situational, though. I generally like being a good guy, even though being bad is more fun, and adds some spice to the RP.

            3. Do you think you should be equals with your fellow players IC, or superior and inferior roles are needed?

            I definitely think inferior and superior roles are needed for most RPs. It gives a sense of place and belonging to every member of the RP, and organizes it. But still, it depends on the situation.

            4. And if there was this kind hierarchy, would you be able to handle superior roles?

            I honestly don't think so. I don't usually enjoy being a captain/chief/boss, even though I might be good at it. I usually prefer handling lower roles such as the ones mentioned in the first question.

                I've been thinking for a while about making some sort of Elder Scrolls rp. But I don't know if I should base it around the quest lines in the games, or maybe a completely new story. If any of you have ever played any of the Elder Scrolls games please give me some sort of idea, and I might even reserve you a slot.

                Elder Scrolls has been discussed here and attempted so many times x3
                The main problem with those RPs is how the setting is developed. Will you allow the players to roam and to do as they please wth only a few quests thrown here and there? It wouldn't work unless a)the RPers were diehard ES players or b)had extensive imagination, otherwise they'd be clueless as to what kind of thing to do, might loose interest etc etc.

                Plus the setting. I believe everyone here wants to see Elsewayr and other places other than Skyrim?

                And the story, it could be canon as much as it could be made up. I'd be intrigued equally by both. But I want to know if an Elder Scrolls RP can be maintained successfully, as I feel like one of those would be a major hit on the RPC if it was handled adequately :3

                I really want an Elder Scrolls RP to happen so pardon my sudden walls of inquiries x3
                Just hearing the series' name gets me very excited :p

                  I originally thought that maybe I could just throw them into the skyrim main quest line, but it really wouldn't work. I would find it hard to believe the divines bestowing the power of the Dragonborn to a group, then I started to think about the Oblivion quest line. That would work pretty well as it could start from any setting. Maybe the hero of oblivion never existed and maybe a number of people decided to fight it off themselves and teamed up. And I was also thinking, maybe let the story start a month before the crisis, so people can roleplay the lives of their characters without having to fight off the armies of Oblivion at the beginning. Also considering Elsweyr, I don't know much about the province. But I could easily read through the lore and learn about all the places. Still undecided on everything though.

                  When I post my roleplay I am going to be implementing Gen VI. Obviously not everything will be available initially, but the games will be coming out within a month of my posting it (assuming I post it when I plan), so it wouldn't be much of a wait. :3

                  @Swifty the Magical Foxy dude - I had actually planned to, but I wasn't sure if it was allowed. >.>; I then figured that I'd use one of my old pokémon characters that I missed, rather than ask and wait for an answer. Pfft

                  I noticed we're discussing another Elder Scrolls RP? Ah, mine is still in the works! Pokémon x TES. I've just postponed it until I wrap up preparations for the main RP that I'm working on. Plus, I had started writing a fanfiction about it, so it might help me come up with ideas for it if I continue to work on that first.

                  But I would love to see a successful Elder Scrolls roleplay pop up. Everyone, work on one! d:

                    I've started to work on one, deciding to go just Elder Scrolls, although a combination with Pokemon sounds like a brilliant idea. If everybody works on one and gets them all accepted we could have some sort of event to see who made the best Elder Scrolls RP. Now THAT I would like to see!

                    TES x Elder Scrolls? Tell me more :3
                    But okay, I'm also curious to see what your other RP is in the meantime.

                      Ok, decided to put my Elder Scrolls themed rp into the setting of Oblivion, and I've figured out how they would level up most skills. But I'm not sure about how they would level up acrobatics, athletics or sneak. I originally thought they could just use it a lot and consult a GM about it, to see if they can level it up. But that might just get too annoying after a while. Especially Athletics and Acrobatics, which in Oblivion was just running, swimming and jumping. Anybody got any good ideas that could help me out here?
