    Tournament of Life? Why yes, yes I was. Shame I wasn't able to raise my Cleffa... And I had so much planned for Julyanne...

    I haven't really touched upon One Piece, so it's out. Monster Hunter I haven't played, but I see some of my friends playing that. And-... wait, that's not the type of quest that I mean.

    I'm filtering some of the anime out, like the top 5 shounens. Dragon Ball and its sequels (for obvious reasons), Bleach, Naruto (Don't get angry, there are more ninjas out there. These guys are more brawlers than the Glass Cannons that Ninjas are supposed to be), and... what's the last one again? It's mostly because I can't live up to the players expectations if I do include them.

    I also won't accept Final Fantasy. Why? Because Player characters can use FF's Color magic. It is one of the few things that are consistent in the game, aside from Chocobo. There is already a game named Dissidia, why not make an RP about that?

    If anyone here has heard of Fate/Stay Night, and wants me to include that, then I'd need you to co-GM. I know some of their mechanics, but not all of them.

    Anyway, I already picked out PMMM as one of them. But aside from that, the others are free reign. Suikoden, sure. RWBY, why not? I'll mix them up as best as I could and serve it on a silver platter for you guys. Complete with a cute, small, tropical umbrella to boot.

    Yes, I'm totally up for this. I love Dissidia so much! Please do it! I'll love you eternally if you did it.

      @Rune - I could co-GM if you want. But I don't think you shouldn't include the fate series. It proved a difficult premise in Fate/ of a NAtion that I GM'd with Chilidawgs.

        @Dissidia RP- ... When I phrased that question, I meant it in a way to encourage someone else to do that. If I have a lot of time on my hands, maybe I could, but for now I'll focus on making one RP.

        @gimmie - Huh, there was already a Fate series RP made here? That would have been cool. Anyway, I thought about it and I'm going to go with To Aru Espers instead. Much less headache that way. 2 down, 3 or so to go... suggestions anyone?

        No problem, I think I'll make the Dissida RP then. Just looked up TAE and it looks neat!

          I was really confused when you said you looked up "TAE", -ahem- but now I know you mean the To Aru franchise, yes? There are two sides to it, the "Magic" side titled "To Aru Majutsu no Index" which focuses on the magicians, and the "Science" side, called "To Aru Kaguku no Railgun" that features Espers and their stories.

          I'll be using the Espers of the Science side in the roleplay I'm planning. And yes, they do look cool.

          Oh, Dissidia RP. Do tell how you'll do that. Are you going to let players control the canon characters, or will you make them create their own? If it's the latter, how will you include the canon elements?

          I think I'll let the players control the cannon characters, I haven't planned it out yet. It'll take some time.
          I don't really know the To Aru franchise but the espers look cool. I hope you'll achieve this RP!

          So instead of posting in my individual RPs - apologies for me being like a ghost lately. At least I've felt like that. I think I'm entering a phase where I don't have much energy or time to focus on the stories and characters of RPs :/ I'll try to be better but yeah, it's no good when RPing is a chore rather than fun relaxation, I think we all can agree on that.

          I like that there's a lot of new ideas around now :3

            My life after death roleplay (angel beats in a sense) was just accepted. If anyone interested, please do join. I don't really have a maximum amount of spaces. Here.

              Zelda RP is still in the works (it'd be done already had work not gotten in the way), so while pondering the mechanics of the RP, I realized something: some races may be too powerful on their own. Gorons, for example, have brute force just by being themselves. This does not bode well for an RP about growth in courage, strength and skill.

              So, my question for you, fellow roleplayers, is this: what races do you think are most fitting for a balanced group, who lack the aforementioned qualities starting out? Additionally, what races would not suit the RP well, and why?

                Well, I can't say I'll go into depth, but now that you mention it, Gorons are not very good in terms of skill development. I'm thinking maybe Ruto, Zora, Hylian, and Kokiri. Those four aren't particularly good at anything other than their general means of transportation, like Zorans and Rutos aren't as skilled at ground travel as Hylians and Kokiri, if you catch my drift. Between those four races, I would think they're generally well-rounded with the ability to excel in any different skill as long as they work towards it. I'll take my cookies now!

                  I'm personally of the opinion that any of the non-evil races of Hyrule (and beyond) would work. In the case of those like gorons, methinks that a careful eye by the GM and a courteous role-player would mitigate most of the traits that might make them OP. Also: juvenile gorons and/or gorons with undesirable personality traits (arrogance, social awkwardness, etc) might be characters worth pursuing. Basically, I guess I'm saying that I don't think limitations on the races would be necessary.

                    By normal standards, I would agree. This RP, though, is much more survival-themed, and deadly battles and encounters may be semi-regular to the journey and the story involved. Gorons seem to be near-indestructible, and situations where everyone's lives are at risk, it would appear that the Gorons are too sturdy to fit into that situation.


                    I was thinking of adding a Pros-Cons list to each race in the RP, so that everyone can have their characters unique and flawed by their own races. I may have to research a bit of each race, but it's Zelda, and if my theme didn't tip you off, I would actually enjoy that research.

                        Hi there Ikca!

                        You've come to a great place to role play, especially if you're hoping to improve your skills. I'd suggest starting off by reading the stickied Roleplayers Etiquette thread, as it helps explain some of the ways we do and don't interact with each other in order to make sure everyone enjoys themselves as much as possible. After that I'd say to read as much as possible of other people roleplaying. Never stop doing this, even if you hit a point where you think you're pretty good. There's always more to learn!

                        If you're looking for beginner friendly RP's that are not only a good place to hone your craft, but also meet like minded people that enjoy helping you get better, my two top tips would be Pokemon Trainer Academy and Guilded Halls. They're both sandbox school set RP's, and really easy to jump into. I know PTA has plenty of open spots, but I'm not sure about GH.

                        If you have any questions feel free to ask in this thread or message one of the moderators, the GM or whichever RP you decide to apply for or even myself. I hold no official position other than liking to help people out, so the mods are better if you have anything more "official" to ask.

                        But most of all, a warm welcome to you! This is a great community and if you stick around I think you'll not only enjoy yourself but also find your roleplaying skills growing exponentially.

                        Welcome to the Roleplay Corner! First, check out The Rules, not only because it contains the rules that are essential to being apart of the community, but also because it contains hints and tutorials for those who need help with things such as character creation, grammar, and roleplaying in general. You can also ask for help from other roleplayers. Don't be afraid to ask for help.

                        If you want to take it further, read through some roleplays to get a feel for acceptable ways of roleplaying. Just remember that just because there seems to be a consensus for roleplaying doesn't mean it's the only way it can be done. Don't be afraid to try and be creative with your roleplay style.

                        Be sure to check out the Roleplay Lounge for Roleplays still recruiting members. A couple new ones include Fairy Tale and Life After Death.

                        Again, welcome to the RP Corner!

                          Alright guys, now that Novia's run out of juice I still find myself wanting to GM and play in a journey RP. So I have written another Journey RP, this one being set in the Hoenn region as opposed to a region of my own design like Novia. Whilst the RP still follows the same formula of other journey's (completion of the league being the centre-piece) I wanted to take a different approach, so the RP focuses more on the individual goals of the various characters on their journey through the region and completing the league will not actually be mandatory but rather more of a "recommended" option. Before I post this though I want to make sure that people are actually interested in taking part since there haven't been many RPs of the genre lately.

                          I also have two other RPs I am currently working on - but unlike the one above they're not ready. The first is one set in the Starcraft universe following a group of human characters as they are forced to go from ordinary colonists to soldiers in a war between alien races. The second is an original role play which deals with the inhabitants of a city attempting to survive a supernatural apocalypse consisting of various "plagues" (may or may not involve the development of superhuman abilities, expect zombies, hellfire and dragons.)

                          So, thoughts.

                          Also, welcome to the RPC Ikca.

                            Hoenn is my favorite region of all of them, so I would definately join. I think letting us choose our paths is cool, as sometimes I like being the bad buy, but then again, hoenn is just so cool you can't be the bad guy! I <3 Hoenn!

                            btw - that means i approve

                            as for you other two... I like the sound of the second one. An apocalypse is always good if you have a good plotline and something to base our ideas off (a reason to frequently post) a different apocalyptic roleplay I was once in died due to their being nothing to do, so you might have to think carefully about that one.

                            I love journey RP. Yet I struggle with them at the moment :x What makes me really enjoy them is the opportunity to kind of write an "original-trainer-fic" with inspirational help in the form of rules and events laid down by the GM. But that requires some kind of enticing setting as well as you creating a good character to play with, in order to last for a longer run.

                            I don't know if I maybe don't like my current RP character as much as I hoped I would, maybe that's keeping me :/

                            But if you think you can create an interesting enough premise and setting, I'll at least be tempted to join ;)

                            Blerg, people stealing my thunder with introductions for new guys! x3

                            @Ikca, I suppose there really isn't much more to be said, haha. Abandon all hope ye who enters here, the land of Roleplays and Fun, and bla, bla, bla :P *read as: WELCOME!!!!1*

                            One couple more thing, in case you haven't noticed them yet:
                            the Roleplay Library lists all currently active Roleplays in the community, sorted by rating and whether they're Pokémon or non-Pokémon.
                            Check to See if your Roleplay has been accepted v2 is constantly updated whenever a new RP is approved.

                            That's it, I guess, welcome~ :D

                            @gimme. HOENN RP! IMPOSSIBRU!
                            Actually, that's pretty cool, paths and individual goals and all that, just don't put talking walking omniscient Dr. Who-ish Lotads in it and it'll be just fine : >

                            @Elite - Don't worry it is entirely different to Hoenn ReBurst.

                            I thought about making a TWD-like RP based in a post-modern era. Would anyone be interested?
