Title: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: YiazmatSlayer on June 11, 2011, 07:39:09 PM
Previous thread had reached 500+ Posts.

The last post was;

Don't worry Kain I'm sure an idea will come along the way, I created Tiarra as a blank character and only got the idea for her as we went along. :P

You all write a hell of a lot in the RP's nowadays back int he day we used to write small amounts but it moved quite quickly.

If I'm being honest the huge amounts of texts will probably stop me from joining the roleplays as it's daunting to read a page of a book (to me) for each post a character does.

When did everyone start writing so much? :o

Were you around for "The Lost Hero" ?

If so, that was the first RP I joined, and being a writer myself...well, it got large posts ;D

I may have been, don't get me wrong I don't mind writing in fact I enjoy it. I also enjoy reading but only that much when I've sat down relaxed with a nice cuppa to read a book :)

Just make sure you have a cuppa when you sit down to join.

Listen guys, we need to start moving the RP along again so if no-one else advances the plot with their character I'm going to have to do it and it might be in a way that interferes with your ideas. You have 24 hours (boy did that sound evil :P ).

I don't like massive posts :/ I can write them but I get bored easy. =d I wouldn't consider myself a writer (I'd like to be but ..)  I think smaller posts like a paragraph would be enough so it can move faster and people have more chance to post.

I was told there was a roleplaying forum on here (I usually rp on gaiaonline), I was a bit sad everyone all advance lit =[]

Just a suggestion - if enough people prefer them without long posts, maybe create some where there is also a maximum length of post and possibly have 2 running simultaneously with one long posts and one shorter? Obviously that has room for flexibility and some long posts would be fine, but just a suggestion :)

Haha, you can't really get it wrong (so long as you don't like break the rules and kill a character xD ), but it can be tricky with the posts as long as they are to join in after like... 20 odd pages and have to read through it all, especially if time is limited.

That's not going to happen because the long posts in the RPs are not required, they just happen because people are enthusiastic.

I didn't know anyone at first and I didn't wanna join and get it all wrong xD

Even if you did get it a little wrong it wouldn't really matter. RPing is about adapting to other peoples' ideas. As long as you have the right theme in you're head then you should be fine.

In Whisperers, our previous RP, there has been numerous occasions of forced doublepost (I actually recall some triplepost occasions...) due to the massiveness (yay madeup word) of the situation that needs to be explained... hence I fear that may not be possible. I agree that it is quite a pain to join if you're joining halfway, and while an attempt at keeping a running summary has been made sometimes things just cannot be summarized... but if anyone would like a summary I wouldn't one constructing one for the RP.

Just make sure you have a cuppa when you sit down to join.

I think I've been advancing mine far enough and I think I will be detached from the main crew for a while anyway. I've been waiting because I don't really wanna mess up the 'time sync' of the RP, for lack of a better word. But I think I'll add something tonight or tomorrow night.

Oh, there would of course be room for flexibility - long posts would of course be acceptable at climatic times - but I was referring more to the great amounts of detail in some posts that isn't completely necessary for the storyline... but obviously it's fine if people don't want it, I personally don't have a problem with the current method :)

I think I don't like extremely long posts is because I like to leave most things to the imagination, I don't force images or descriptions onto people and let them make monsters or buildings basically to there own specifications.

I'll agree at sometimes (during climactic part or parts that need description) large descriptions are needed but the way I prefer to RP is fast flowing and interactive.

I may attempt to join one of the RP's (there's only one atm) but I think I'll post a paragraph maybe two at most if I do.

That's a way a lot of authors write. If that's the way you want to do it and be part of the RP then that's perfect. Just be warned that some people may require some clarification on certain points in this thread. But your way would fit right in, I'm sure of it.

I'll add something later today. I just don't think RPs dying because of people fearing to mislead the plot is a good idea. Neither is lack of understanding (although that cannot be helped some of the time). Only real life events should impact how active peeps are. ;D

That time sync is one of the things I've been worried about. The entire timeline of my posts is a single night in the RP. I can fix it pretty easily in another post (maybe two). I usually think in much more detail when I try to write.

The reason my posts tend to be fairly long is that I very rarely have the patience to write down my ideas (ask Metal Choc). I usually build whole worlds in my head (often several), thinking generations in advance but I never actually get down to writing the story. So whenever I do sit down to post I try to get as much ouit of my head and onto the screen as I can.

See, even this thing is long.

Woah a second Discussion thread? we hit a milestone :D

Anyway, I was feeling a little bit shy to express this before, but since Mike already said it, well why shouldn't I. The thing is, I left the RP section for months because of the recent lengthy post styles that been around since RPs like Whisperer (no offense) I mean you are with the story and all but suddenly your internet goes off, and you will have to read like 3 pages full of really lengthy (sometimes one-paragraphed) posts.   

I think we should put a limit on the maximum lines just like it has been done with the minimum. (I think I already read this suggestion somewhere, probably by Ultima).

Anyway I been reading lots of novels recently, so I wouldn't mind either way :D

Btw I smell a Zodiackiller around XD

Ultima said that there shouldn't be a maximum line length, which makes sense if people want to express everything. But myself I would prefer not to read a short story though every post, it seems that there can't be much character interaction if the posts are so length (not without some god modding)

But if enough people say they would join/be interested then I personally would not see any problem with making a new RP and imposing a maximum length (obviously not set in stone) as an additional rule for just that one RP.
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: MK Emaster on June 23, 2011, 12:43:30 PM
Yeah there is the exact problem of lengthy posts, not the suffer to read the whole thing--no, but the interaction. Unless it is all about a single pondering moment, it is hard to interact with the other character and it will cause a confusion, like multiple actions decided when you wanted an action to be done between those @__@

Anyway I think this matter is up to the RP creator himself, I myself would put a max limit as well as the standard min limit on lines. Which brings up another matter, can we like please be able to create up to 5 RPs or so at the same time?.

There aren't enough regulars in the RP section for that many RPs.

EDIT: Oh and just so I'm clear, I am very against both a maximum post length and a blanket rule against god modding. If they are implemented I will be leaving. I have experienced RP sections on other forums with similar rules and they are only fun until some over zealous control freak catches you making their character change their mere facial expression and goes on a flame rampage. I do not want to attract that kind of person.

The unique experience of RPing should be about working your ideas around those of others to create an interesting story. Not about 4 lines of writing all of an embellished sentence for one part of a conversation. If the direction of the story is not where you wanted, that's fine. Pursuing another side plot-line could make for good reading. Even if we control your characters a little for the sake of readable continuity, we never tie anyone down to a single story location. That's why I believe god-modding to be a silly and ridiculously constricting rule.

This is why we have the option to have 2 RP's going at once if the need arises.

Controlling someone else's character in a way that they do not wish. As far as god-modding as this RP forum would consider it, the only things we cannot do are steer a character from a story arc they are currently in the middle of or kill them off.

God Modding: Controlling other peoples characters.

Also there is a great difference between 4 lines per post and a short story per post. I feel the main aspect of an RP should be character interaction and reaction. Such as in LARP you act and react to what over people do in real-time, since this can't be emulated in a text based roleplay people should be given chance to react to almost everything.

Opinion
Shorter posts =/= to less substance. All shorter posts would allow is a flowing storyline where each and every character can influence the direction of the storyline. Also some people would feel more involved with the story if they could post much more frequently so the RP would move move faster and have a more lively pace.
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: YiazmatSlayer on June 23, 2011, 05:42:52 PM

I think in the title of an RP, we'll have to add [Short-Post] or [Long-Post] so people know.

I personally am all for having both going at once, and if you guys have seen my novel, then you'll also know that I like LONG posts ;)

To put it bluntly, that's a load of BS. Every character can already influence the direction of the story should the member who created said character so choose to. As for the frequency of posting, there have been many gaps where people have been free to post and simply choose not to. It has nothing to do with post length.

Really? I assumed it took less time to post 1 to 2 paragraphs than a 1500 story. Im sure people have more 20 minuet time slots free than 40.

Look Ultima I am not trying to aggravate you or change the way RP's are run. All I am saying is there should be an option based on RP creators choice.

I still feel justified in my opinion. If someone slaps me I would react straight away as opposed to waiting for them to finish what they are doing before reacting. (very broad example)

It does take less time. But you forget that they don't have to write long posts. All those that do choose to do so.

Yes, an option is an idea but we've had problems keeping more than one RP active before now and the board was only recently revived.

So you're saying that you do not trust anyone on the board to guess your reaction and write it in their post? I know you'd class that as god-modding but we have been adequately policing the fairness of match-ups and importance of each character in yours and MK's absence. There are plenty of other RP specific forums with far more strict rules should you wish to be the only one who controls your character. Or failing that you ask that no-one controls your character when you create it. But changing the status quo for everyone immediately is silly.

I never said to change it for everyone, before repeling the idea I feel we should give it a dry run with anyone who is interested. (Me, MK and DevilsGreen)

And as such the current RP running would not be fun for me.

Look I'm sorry if I have annoyed you that was honestly not my intention.

I don't see a problem with two RP's at the same time, both with slightly diffrent rules. The main rules of the RP forum would not change. Besides I'm sure somewhere it says RP creators are free to add rules to there own RP's if needed.

I don't expect to find a conversation bordering on an argument. I'm not saying any specific person started this, or dishing out warnings.

Mike, if you want to try a short posts RP, feel free. As Ultima said, we've tried the two simultaneous RP at a time thing, and it didn't work. I do believe one of them died, my own, called Gems of Rydoka.

If you three want your shorter RP, go for it. Ultima and any others who like long posts can stick to that.

If you three want your shorter RP, go for it. Ultima and any others who like long posts can stick to that.

Clear?

I read it, I just got the impression that ultima didn't even want that for some reason

I agree.

Although personally I do agree with mike that smaller posts allow your character to interact with everything; for example if your character walked into a room, broke a lamp, shouted at a plant pot, cried in the corner and then i internally combust ... you'r not allowing someone to maybe get in you way as you try and enter ... even if you do allow them to do that ... everything after that event is a waste in a way because if you allowed them to stop you most of your post didn't happen.

Yes but your not giving people chance to react/ people don't wanna react to something earlier in the post because *reason here*. :/ Say they do want to block you at the door why would they need to read the rest of the post, which you may have spent a long time writing, and turns out not to matter to the story. =o

Do you get what I'm getting at?

Or are you trying to say your post gives people various places to get involved, change your actions ect?

Do none of you short post fanatics trust myself, Yiaz, Mega or anyone to treat your character's role with respect when it comes to writing our post and creating story arcs?

God modding wasn't my main point to begin with. What I find fun is a fast moving sleek roleplay where everyone is given a chance to act and react.

What do you have against there being a separate forum? Also it's not about trust it's about Role playing not story writing theres a written section for that :D
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: YiazmatSlayer on June 23, 2011, 11:30:09 PM
A roleplay needs a storyline. To progress that storyline, you have to post a well-constructed, coherent post.

This isn't a shortened version of D&D. The RP section on this forum has always been about a story, and the posts have been long for a VERY long time.

I think the only reasonable solution to this, is to say that if you want to post a shorter post than everyone else's, do so, but know that everyone else will continue the long posts. I would find a short-post rp far too restricting, and boring if I'm honest.

It isn't a FFVII Battle where you select actions ::)

Sadly I shall not be joining the RPs then. I don't enjoy having to ready such long posts, infact as soon as the long posts started I became terribly inactive.

I would much prefer "choosing actions". In my oppinion the clue is in the title Roleplay in which you play a role. just as in a play you say your lines not someone else's
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: YiazmatSlayer on June 23, 2011, 11:39:44 PM
You've been inactive from RPS since 2008?

As Ultima said right back at the beginning of this discussion, if you don't want your character to be touched by anybody else, state it in an OoC post. We're all respectful here, so we wouldn't mess with the character.

That's the last I'm saying of this now. I honestly can't believe this discussion got as heated as it did.

You and Ultima like long posts.

Me, Mike and MK might not. Why can't we have a shorter post forum? :/ This discussion seems side heavy. :/
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: ElliotMajor on June 23, 2011, 11:44:01 PM
Yes which is when pprincess started posting the first long post (if memory serves, don't quote me)

Characters being touch by other people is only one part of the problem. The other part is that I am not prepared to read a chapter of a book when I want to RP. Quite frankly it can be daunting.

The discussion was only heated due to Ultima assuming that when we said a new rule we meant for the entire forum. Whereas all I had meant was a new rule for a new RP you guys carry on with your long posts and whoever wanted to join the shorter post on would. However Ultima was greatly opposed to that idea too. "My way or the highway" apparently.

I'd modify that post if I were you. It will only serve to antagonise otherwise.

I did consider, if you read back. I even suggested a way of doing it. However, as I've said in the Sandsea, as no solution was forthcoming, I've decided to stick by what the current RP is like.

Sorry I have to agree it does seem that way; and I'm having to say I won't be joining. Like I keep saying I don't see the issue with a different roleplay with different post expectations.

I am not posting as  a mod , this is the yiaz mans baby not mine

but....

your putting yiaz in an awful position and now I have read it all , I have my thoughts on it all , so for what it is worth....


As an outsider , in other words I am neutral to both sides ...anyway it is clear beyond belief that there are two writing styles and both are fab , I admire the long detailed effort some of you go to , and the description of a faster , shorter posting style one also sounds fab...

It really is that simple , but you all went and got your knickers in a knot ..right   ::)

The longer rp's clearly have put off the likes of greeny , and dampened confidence for fear of not fitting in with the long posts ...I can understand that actually ...but paul has done everything he can to reassure you all that your posts however short are as welcome and wanted as the longer posts.

However , if your not a long poster and don't want to read all that then no matter what paul says you will not want that kind of rp ..right ..

At the same time , paul , yiaz etc etc cannot have their love of writing and their own passions dampened by having to write short posts .

I see what you all mean by saying you cannot intervene in the middle of action on the rp because its long , but that poster obviously knows this and is doing his part as he chooses.

It really all makes perfect sense to read this thread , tone and words on a forum have no personality sometimes , there is no smile or reassuring gesture to let you know its ok , and you have all just tried to express your points too much now  ;)

Yiaz gave you a solution and in my eyes I see no other option

short posters cant be expected to start writing novels

long posters can;t be expected to dismiss their long stories

It seems wrong to dictate at the beginning what style of post is required

but it seems wrong to not let you ALL express yourselves

two at the same time yiaz said .... but I guess before yiaz feels like it there has to be some kind of acceptance to each other ..

can;t you see it ..look at this thread ..your all full of fire and its fab ..and you should all be writing and expressing this .

 :)

EXACTLY! But sorta not. You missed the point as wel kindal. :/

We know our short posts would be accepted, but I don't want to read, or want to have so much to post back to.
They don't want to read a smaller post and have "not enough" to reply to.

Again I have to say ... why can't we have a separate forum?!

Then we can both do our things and roleplay the way we enjoy to and don't mess up each others fun.

Sad thing what is been going on, but I can't say nothing now, Yiaz's post is up already.

I did just like to say I had and have no objection at all at long post, they are much more fun to read (Not in the morning though XD) and shorty post are fun as well, like you just got the nutshell and its your turn to interact and all. Anyway, as for me, I will be writing in moderate quantity with my usual quality since 2008 (without the grammar and spelling mistakes I did back then though :D ).

Hope it is all good for you people, and please don't announce dumping this place over one heated discussion, come on you guys are better than that. I can argue and hell and just be back the other day XD

And a suggestion if I may (I know I'm too late but whateva) :
To help people who missed a couple of pages due to internet problems or a sick pet, can long posters like KINDLY and OPTIONALLY include  a summary or a nutshell of their post? (Not that u should or anything)

I once gone off in an RP here for 10 pages and Keyblademaster gave me a whole summary through PM XD

I'm not really sure if i'm going to put this right, so I'm sorry if I offend anyone

Thing is, I'm fairly sci-fi minded, and I always put a lot of thought into what I write (too much, but that's another discussion) so I could really go for miles with this idea, coming up with new weapons, technologies, backstories, etc. What we've got so far is fine, but feels kind of limited.

But, I don't know how much flexibiltiy I've got in changing things (it's only my second RP and my first, Dragon Slayer, died before it really went anywhere)

I'm also wondering, is this meant to be a short RP just to kickstart the forum again, or is it meant to last a while.
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: rsslayersr on February 06, 2012, 08:10:13 PM

It's no worries Dragon, it was just a change from the usual medieval fantasy stuff.

I'm not going to give away what I have planned for my character anyway ;) you'll have to wait and see!

It's meant to be limited because we're stuck in a battle against an innumerable foe that seems impossible to defeat.

I thought it would be an idea to see where we could go with something like this, rather than just producing a unit of heroes that could kill something with a prod of their heroic fingers ::) :))

 ;D ;D ;D

The group switched on their flashlights and started to gather supplies like ammo and medical stuff. The first thing that popped into their heads was upgrading. Roy and Jason went left into a room that seemed to have semi-automatic laser rifles and Cindel saw a glimmer of reflecting light right from her. She walked up to it and saw a glass casing over a magnificant sword. It wasn't longer than her arm and reflected light like a mirror. It had blue carvings and a logo of a blue burning skull. It was stuck between two metal claws that seemed to keep it in place. Those claws were connected to a machine that looked like a slot machine. It remembered her of someone.

She took the casing from the sword and grabbed the sword, pulling it from the claws. The sword's carvings began to glow with a faint blue light.

Well let me be the first to welcome Jeda to the group. :D

We are now around two thirds of the way through this RP (by my estimation at least, correct me if I'm wrong Chris) anyone who wants to host the next RP should start considering their ideas now. You need to have a relatively clear beginning to middle to end for it to flow properly.

EDIT: Derek's dead Jer. John is the one who is still alive out of my original trio.

I'd just like to make one thing clear. When writing a post, don't make it ONLY about your character(s). There needs to be at least a little story progression. For example, Daniel's entrance could have been finished in 1-2 posts and instead it took 3. The 15th are supposed to be getting engine parts at the moment so focus on moving towards that.

As you may have noticed, I started a second storyline in my posts recently. I did have some plans for the characters I'd introduced but I've decided just to scrap the whole thing. Is it alright If I edit my last few posts and delete those sections? They have no baring on the current plot.
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: rsslayersr on March 11, 2012, 08:45:17 PM
Well. I was actually getting pulled in by it ;D Off course you may delete it. For the storyline it won't make a difference ;)
May Ï ask, why?
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: Dragon Lord on March 11, 2012, 09:44:02 PM
Its kinda complicated.

My original plan was to create a character who could take the new Brachh Elite in a straight one-on-one fight. Aaron was meant to be sort of like a PG version of Jack from Mass Effect 2, a telekinetic super soldier. Cassie was a telepath who could try to reach Batien inside the Brachh so at the end the 15th would have a Brachh fighting with them. There would be other young subjects as well, a genius tech specialist included. Another reason was to give the team someone to protect. Up until now, its a bunch of soldiers fighting a gorilla war. Adding civilians that had to be kept safe under battlefield conditions would add a new level of difficulty.

I decided that we had enough to be going on with and that adding more would just complicate things. I was also having some trouble working out how to integrate them into the story and the group without them seeming overpowered. A lastly, I realised I already have two characters whose names start with "A". It seemed a little redundant adding a third.

...

I'm planning to post tomorrow evening, but I'm not really sure what I'm going to do yet. Might just be filler.
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: rsslayersr on March 11, 2012, 09:46:40 PM
Mine was almost like a filler >.< At least it got Ultima a bit going. This can work, I'm not talking to Jeda, trying to get some ideas for Daniël.

At least you didn't call all your characters nick xD

I wasn't really thinking a fight... more along the lines of the 15th getting their collective asses kicked and just geetting away by the skin of their teeth. Just sort of an introduction. But no worries, scratch that idea. I have much bigger plans....

Someone has gotten the same mad idea as me ::) Thank you ;D

My first thought was nuking the place, but it seemed immoral, so I scrapped that part. Then EMP flew through my head :D

Just to make something clear, the Bastion/Bastien (it's late >.<) scene existed only because of the little sword connection.
Swords don't naturaly glow and aren't found in super secret base places and such :p

let's just keep ir at an unknown past between the sword, Bastion and the base :D

Do you need an interim post so you can write your next one?

I just wanted to give everyone a chance to tidy up any loose ends before I moved the story on. If anyone wants to actually cover the escape then feel free. I just need the ship airborn, which I can do myself if need be.

PS. the Raven has 4 laser cannon turrets, two kinetic missile launchers and a pair of high output heavy pulse laser cannons. Just in case someone wants to have the ship fight.

Thanks guys, I posted anyway. Even if it wasn't in the rules which, as Yiaz pointed out, it is, I would wait anyway. Normally I wait for at least two other people to post, just as a personal policy. This time was an exception, where I waited for just one person to post.

(I said I, because Daniël still needs a bit of help, making his ideas real.)
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: Dragon Lord on May 14, 2012, 11:10:54 PM
Last exam tomorrow, EVER!!! ;D ;D ;D 

Should be able to post tomorrow night.

Quick question about the story though.

"Jason, Kate, your help would be much appreciated." Daniël said.

Why does Daniel need Kate's help? She's a combat medic with next to no tech skills at all. I would have gone for Sam or Roy, who seem to be the team's tech specialists. Even just for fire-support, Alex, Sam, John or Canton would have been my choice.

Not criticising, just not sure why Kate and it might affect what I end up posting.
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: rsslayersr on May 15, 2012, 01:32:17 PM
Believe me, on my way to school, I was really facepalming on my decicion.

Even more, why Jason? Their part wouldn't add anything to the story, I was probably just thinking about the group that was their when Daniël found out about the bug.

I'll change it into Alex, or maybe Roy, or both.. Hard decicion, but I won't choose Jason and Kate, that's for sure.
Could you all help me with that?
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: Dragon Lord on May 16, 2012, 11:22:01 AM
It depends on what Daniel's actually doing. I've come up with a summary of each of the teams roles / specialties, see if this helps you work it out.

Alex - Fire support
Kate - Medic
Canton - Close Combat
John - Fire Support, Electronics
Jason - Close Combat
Roy - Fire Support, Engineer, Demolitions
Daniel - Close Combat, Code-Breaking
Sam - Heavy Weapons, Engineer, Fire Support

Post by: rsslayersr on May 16, 2012, 03:52:19 PM
Plan: Daniël succees and we have a heck little time to safe the world. The next couple of postes are full of action, I am sure  ::)

How fast Daniël succeeds, is up to all of us.

I think we need the Leaders outside.. Alex and Canton, but if you both miss the action, how would the story come out. Because I don't see Daniël post anytime sooner then you all.

If we all start charging at the HQ, the Brachh will follow us. Or worse, they may find out in little time. I suggest short posts.. just because we can't fill in so many gaps with just one person..  You don't have to listen to me, I'm just babbeling.

Just have enough com conversations and it will turn out fine..

Then again, who will I choose? ::)

Roy could probably cover Daniël, who's already overpowered as :x :D :D ;D
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: Dragon Lord on May 16, 2012, 06:31:28 PM
I'm writing my post now.

I'm thinking two groups, one inside the facility while the other is outside facing the Brachh army. Alex and Canton can stay outside.

Gives the chance for Yiaz to get his character involved too.

I think he's alright for a bit. It depends on how long we want to run this for.

I can see two ways for the RP to come to a close:
1st - We finish up by destroying the Brachh space ship. The Alliance Fleet comes in, picks us up (or not) and glasses the planet.
2nd - We find the origin of the Brachh invasion and do one last mission to destroy it.

Personally, I'd like to move on to something new fairly soon. Don't get me wrong, happy to continue with this one, I've really enjoyed writting it. I'd just like to try something different.
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: rsslayersr on May 16, 2012, 11:14:50 PM
I have my own little image.

We finish this Brachh airship, flee from the planet and send a message through the universe, to tell wat whe've seen. At the same time we find out that on the other parts of the planet, more Brachh airships start to emerge.

Also, I've not ot a clue what the hell any of you are doing in the rp anymore, one second you were in the city, next you were flying on the merry way to god knows where.

You should have mentioned that you felt your post was ignored. None of us realised. :( Sorry dude.

Sorry for asking, but are there any other epilogues in progress for Defence of Kerusan? I know Daniel could, but I'm not sure if he wants ::)

For simplicity's sake, so we don't have to switch between topics and stuff.

Ark of Infinity

1000 years ago, the war between the Human Arcadian Empire and the Demi-Human Hellios Republic nearly destroyed the continent of Era. In order to put an end to the conflict, a group of wise and powerful sorcerers called the Order of the Grey harnessed the Ark of Infinity. Using the Ark’s unlimited power the Grey destroyed the armies of both nations and split the continent in two. Arcadia and Hellios were forced to end the war in order to support their own people after the cataclysm. Realising how dangerous the Ark was, the Grey split it into five pieces and hid the pieces across the two territories before fading away into legend themselves.

Now, the two nations once again begin to wage war against one another, both searching for the fragments of the Ark of Infinity. Little do they know that a shadow organisation also seeking the Ark, are the ones responsible for this new war.


...

Three contributors would be required to act as a leader of one of the three factions (Arcadia, Hellios and the Organisation), at least in terms of the military (much the same as whisperer), while the rest would be members of one of the factions. The goal would be to assemble all 5 pieces of the Ark (representing the 4 elements and the Void). At the same time the story takes place in the middle of a war.

Arcadian Empire – Humans
Hellios Republic - Beastmen (wolves, bears, cats, etc.), Featherfolk (Winged humans), Merfolk (fish people), Elderfolk (tree people)
Organisation - Anything goes

I still like the leader idea... the groups just have to be more defined in purpose.

I still like the leader idea... the groups just have to be more defined in purpose.

I've talked it over with Ultima and I'm definately going to reduce it down to two factions, the Human Empire and the Demi-Human Republic. Both sides are basically trying to destroy each other and both are seeking the Ark of Infinity to do that.

The War and the Ark Fragments (just going to call them Arks) are what's happening in the background. While every PC will be on one side or the other it's entirely up to them what they do with it. They might be completely determined to destroy the other side because of a personal tragedy or just plain bigotry. On the other hand, they could be reluctant to fight in the war and be trying to stop it. I don't just want this to be a big battle. Come up with your own stories, all I've done is provide the situation and some driving force (the Arks).


There will need to be two faction leaders. I'll take one and Ultima and Kaincrow can decide who acts as the other. It doesn't really matter who controls which faction. Faction leaders get two characters, the actual leader and another character so they can be more deeply involved with the ongoing story. The faction leaders job will basically be to direct the war itself, they will have very little control over individual characters (except of course NPCs).

Its been suggested that every contributor controls two completely separate characters (not counting NPCs) in order to beef up the numbers. Thoughts? Not gonna force this issue.

Sooo.. Currently Ultima and Dragon Lord's the leaders, me filling in third in case no one else particularly wants.. Unless any changes had been made?

;) When can we submit our application forms, Dragon Lord?


Dragon Lord posted while I was typing.. ;)

Let Ultima fill in, 'cuz I prefer being a minion.. *cackle* So should I submit my character sheet now?

Further edition

Well, I am guessing that two character ideas can be optional for the ppl who wants to- Like, in Whisperers, I kept one character + NPC anyway, and he was pretty much involved in 2 different characters- Kai and Fae, not to mention other NPC Xaphan, Petre, and a couple of others who were affected by Kai and Ika's family problems.

Currently it's Arcadia (human) and Hellios (non-human) factions, then we got Ark of Infinity.. There always can be researcher/scholar characters involved in exploring legends or fables originating fron the Ark of Infinity, rs.

Although I consider being a featherfolk (again, yep), would be fun, I am considering change in character personalities.. ...Drastic ones from Kai.. ..Huh, I don't know, though, 'cuz... For some reason people I know often say my sense of humor is twisted.. ...Heh.. I will think of something after reading your new info, Dragon.

You can look through past RPs, Dragon. I seem to remember DR had quite a few races like goblins and other stuff, and other fantasy races like gnomes and fairy and fey and-.. Okay, I am going overboard..

I'm all for two characters and more counting NPCs but two player characters may be a bit too much for me with the way school's going. Just putting my thoughts out there :)

Oh, how can you, MegaFun! *dramatically opens arms* You miss them? Seriously? Ika, whose jealousy and guilt drove himself to a variant of amnesia and multiple personality disorder.. And Kai, who got inferiority complex, not to mention fanatical follower who is not blind of the leader's wrong doings but regardlessly follows the orders?

I'm going to leave it up to the individual. Each contributor can decide whether they want to run two characters as they like (plus NPCs, we want a lot of NPCs). Faction leaders have to though  ;D

One thing I will say, only go for two characters if you really think you can manage it.

How ironic because I do Psychology. :D Nah but they were very interesting characters I would say... Kai and Ika the White Crow. I'm always drawn to the abnormal heheheh

Now I think of it, though, MegaFun, shouldn't Bastion and Therion considered as 2?

I suppose, because many times I wrote in Bastion's point-of-view. Still, Therion was the more active of the two. Also I fear my current state of affair, with school and all, won't permit me with two player characters at my disposal, and I don't really need a second character to go with the one I currently have in mind so I am likely to opt out of that. Bastion was a rather spontaneous creation so anything can happen, but I'll most likely just create NPCs along the way.

Meh, currently I am having an idea about another siblings.. (yes, I have a lot of ideas related to siblings).. Prolly cuz I never had one and I really, really want one.. ...Not to mention that I had been raised with those accursed words that I am the oldest (among the cousins) and I must be responsible and all.. (while they are merely, I mean merely, 9 months differences with me (the second oldest) one month later him (third oldest) and all.. ...*sigh*

Tch.. Who knows. I can do solo characters as well, but character development is easier if you have another character to support.. (like how my Kai and C's Fae had their backgrounds solid with their stories interwined)... That reminds me, C's moving to Japan in a month.. I haven't seen her for weeks.

They do.


The Hellios Republic lies south of the Trench with plains to the north of the country. South of that lies the jungles and scattered mountains, a large island group to the west and a massive desert extending far to the extreme south.


Its a very rough outline but there are mountains and small mountain ranges in the jungles and forests of Hellios.

Shouldn't really be a problem. Helios is largely divided into tribes, even amoung the individual races. Its entirely possible, and very likely, that some of the Featherfolk tribes / clans (call them what you like) are very reclusive.

Gonna have to address this sooner or later...Elves.

Rs and Jeda seem to want them so I'll add them into the mythos (I'll modify the Application thread later)

The Elves were an ancient race that inhabited Era millenia before humans arived on the continent and before the Beasment races became civilised (all the races, Featherfolk and Merfolk included). It is unclear whether the Elves created the Ark of Infinity but they did discover it. At first they used its power sparingly and their civilisation flourished. But eventually, some of their kind sought to dominate the others and tried to use the Ark to conquer. This resulted in the extinction of the Elven race, leaving only a few scattered ruins and objects behind.

I always spell "Elven" this way but "Elvhen" should be fine.

This is perfect, the lore I was going for ;), sooner or later, I would've done the same.
I spell elvhen, because that's the 'letter by letter' traslation, in my opinion.
One Elf.

Post by: Dragon Lord on June 10, 2012, 01:22:12 PM
Depends what you mean by history...some of it's already established.

The Elves found the Ark and managed to wipe themselves out with it. Then, thousands of years later, the Order of the Grey used it to stop the war and split Era in half. The Grey then split the Ark into pieces and hid them away where they have laid dormant since. Some of them have been discovered (see Ark of Wind) but no-one knew what the Ark fragments were until recently.

As for their combat applications...the Arks basically allow total control of an element limited only by what the user can actually control. For example, the Fire Ark burns everything without special equipment to contain it, i.e. the gauntlet and Brynhilda. In theory the Ark of Water could be used to control the entire ocean but no human or Beastman could handle that much power.

This is one of the main themes I was going for. The Ark of Infinity is an ultimate power but that much power is too dangerous to be used by man (or beastman). Vanhiem is aware of this, which is why he's very wary of using the Ark of Fire.

The Void Ark is sort of different. It's the balance against the 4 elements that make up the world. It basically just sucks everything into non-existence unless it's left alone.

Is Ashval directly connected to the ocean?
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: rsslayersr on June 11, 2012, 09:57:01 PM
"History: He lives in a small village near the southern coast of Arcadia, close to the Trench." About Ashval, MegaFun's application.

"The southern coast of Arcadia (there's a small village located where MegaFun's Petyr resides)" Self explainatory, Know Geography in Kainy's information thread.

Jeda, I know you easily read over things, but they're almost always findable somewhere around here. Maybe even in the topics you would expect them to :P

I don't know if this information will still be of use to you but yes XD that's how Petyr managed to chase Feraal all the way into the ocean lol

Yo guys, I haven't posted all week so I'll attempt to squeeze one in tonight but I might not post at all next week due to finals all day errday and my major assignment buttrape from my cruel teachers had JUST ended so I've had literally no time to revise... hence I'm cramming everything next week. Sorry for that but just saying in advance!

Hmm-mm, I will attempt to post something soon as well. *mumble* crazy friends attempting to extend the trip and throw a party on vacation, using me as an excuse..
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: Dragon Lord on June 21, 2012, 03:27:37 PM
Okay people.

I'm working on the info thread bit by bit. I'll get it done.

As for the RP itself. The Arks of Void, Fire and Wind have been taken, the Ark of Earth has been claimed. The Ark of Water is still completely up for grabs. Its in Hellios somewhere but that's the only limit. If you want it, PM me. First come first served.

The overall plot (the war) isn't going anywhere for a while. This is a good oppertunity to develop your characters and advance your own individual stories. Get posting people.

Well I am going to begin writing another post.. *wince* I have been experiencing epic fail until now.. *sigh* I am unsure how I should insert Sinkair and Vulpes into the Hellios military force.. They are too, well, wild to be controlled or contained within the military force, considering both their status as Bounty/Treasure Hunters and their tendency to use illegal sources when required..

Contracted Mercenaries maybe, or outright conscription. During wartime, particularly one with these stakes, militaries are more likely to use extreme tactics, special forces / black ops stuff. The moral line tends to blurr a bit when your very existence is at stake.

I'm having trouble discribing the High Counsil, I'll be writing it extra vague so overcome that obstacle. I'm now in the present time, following up with the story. (The time Alice left was probably a 3/4 days before the battle at Iskandar)

After my post, I'm very willing to meet up with characters. Any suggestions? :P
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: KainCrow on June 28, 2012, 11:58:48 AM
*shrug* you can post before mine- considering that the Rooks of the featherfolk are gone (and I mean gone) except Sinkair, there's a chance Alice recognises her as one and feels shocked to see supposedly all-killed member of the Rook village. After you meet the High Council, your character could have seen mine exiting from the room- or via versa, that your chara had been walking out when you saw my character entering as you leave.. *shakes head*
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: rsslayersr on June 28, 2012, 01:14:15 PM
You're going the same way as well, good.
My character and her tribe didn't have much contact with the outside world, good thing I have a loophole for this. She could've read stuff about almost anything in the libraries.

*wonders*

I'll probably make Tobias don't care at all ::)


EDIT: By the looks of it, I'll be ready this night. I need to go to shooting practice right now, so I'll be missing two hours of awesome RP time >.<
If not ready when I want to, I'll be doing overwork.

Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: rsslayersr on June 30, 2012, 02:26:57 PM
Well, got the same idea, but I'm more drawn into thinking he's still there.
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: MegaFun on June 30, 2012, 04:17:38 PM
My understanding is that he is in the process of retreating from the camp so I suppose he's still nearby.
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: KainCrow on July 01, 2012, 03:53:57 PM
*shrug* either way, I think I will wait for his post just to be sure.. In any way, he would either meet Sinkair at camp, or meet somewhere else- where Kaeda would send Sinkair and Vulpe to.

So I just posted my Character Sheet, one character only, and I will start posting as soon as I finish reading the first three pages.
Btw a little SUGGESTION:

So for every running RP there is an application thread and an information thread attached to them right? (not necessarily for all RPs)
How about we have an Art Thread for a running RP? It will not only include fanarts and fancy drawings related to the RP but also simple illustrations and maps. What do you think?

Let's start an Art Thread with the Ark of Infinity (After we ask the sec-mod of course)

Post by: KainCrow on July 11, 2012, 06:39:32 PM
Oh, yeah- I am busy again for a few days. Will attempt to make time to write, but in case anyone wanna proceed, you can just continue-

I am sure you can guess what Sinkair would report to Caius from my previous post regarding strange robed men who stopped the power of the Arks, and Sinkair's firm stands on the matter of using the Arks- though, she has an attitude of 'que sera sera' in some matters.. Although a couple of Councilmen may recognise her exact specie.. The village of Rooks are supposedly annihilated years ago, and she IS the sole survivor.
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: rsslayersr on July 11, 2012, 08:03:03 PM
Who knows how rare the species of Featherfolk is. It would make sense. I AM DEAD. Sorry about that outburst. Had a terrible week. I will try to be up to date soon.
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: KainCrow on July 13, 2012, 09:08:33 AM
Meh, Sinkair won't know, she is an amnesiac.. *sigh* She just knows that she never heard/met any other Rook ever since she was found by a council member, wounded and alone. *shrug*
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: rsslayersr on July 13, 2012, 11:25:21 AM
I wasn't talking about her ;)
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: KainCrow on July 13, 2012, 02:50:54 PM
Hm? *wonders* which featherfolk's rarity were you talking about, Alice? Still, just note, if anyone want to post and continue- I doubt I will have enough free time to sit for a few hours and write for RP- too much things to do and plan for a few days.
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: rsslayersr on July 13, 2012, 02:53:58 PM
I was talking about the councilmen knowing your exact species, nothing that deep ::)

I need to just do this ::)
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: Metal Chocobo on July 14, 2012, 12:29:11 PM
Even if they are rare, it seems logical that the council would know what a Rook is. They will show up in historical documents somewhere, maybe factual ones, maybe just stories of black-winged nightmares.
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: KainCrow on July 14, 2012, 12:40:06 PM
Oooh.. I see. *shrug* I just thought people from similar kinds would distinguish each other better.. Like, for everyone who doesn't like sports, american football and some other sports gears/techniques would look similar.. But to experts or actual people who are involved, they would know better, right? So.. I thought it is possible for canines to identify canines better, something like that.. So birds would note which bird's which, something like that..

...Does my explanation make sense? *frowns* ???

And nothing grand like that, Metal Choc- *chuckle*, they were just an isolated clan- more isolated than others- but it is likely for them to still keep in touch with other featherfolks.. Not to mention the fact that the village was wiped out around 5 years ago *shrug*, not too long ago.. If no survivor was found, it is pausible to think that they will recognise a Rook- although one of the lower council members may recognise Sinkair as someone he found wounded near the boundaries of the Trench 2 and a half years ago.. But then, it was a very short encounter..

This is what I would expect.
But Kainy, you can't expect me to really know about your kind, since the Doves were very isolated in their early years, like myself.
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: KainCrow on July 14, 2012, 06:16:26 PM
Lol.. I never expected your 'Alice' to recognise a Rook, rs. I am expecting one of the council members to recognise Sinkair as a Rook.

Your character, Alice, is supposedly one who was fascinated about the Order of Grey and the Arks.. And quite a scholar. I don't expect her to recognise Sinkair. However, as a diplomat, it would be logical for her to be accompanied by someone who is knowledgeable in the subjects of different species of the demi-human folks when she is sent to the High Council.. ....And Sinkair, currently being an amnesiac, is not aware of the fact that her village was destroyed- she just thinks that she might be the last one because she never saw anyone else or even heard of a Rook. She is, at unconscious level, recognising the fact that she is the only survivor..

Still, you might have noted that Sinkair has lost her memories 2 and a half years ago while the village was destroyed around 5 years ago... ...Yes, the incident that caused her to be amnesiac, is not the same with the incident that destroyed her village- but she thinks that it might have been the case. It's just that she had similar experience- being chased, then knocked out with a head injury.

Post by: KainCrow on September 16, 2012, 09:37:38 AM
Meh.. *shakes head* too much changes of plan. I am half tempted to knock myself out to avoid those confusions. *sigh*

Currently I am at a hotel, with my dear parents- note the sarcasm there. They had been fighting the moment they came out from home (about who forgot what and who didn't tell each other to pack something...).. And they are still fighting over all kinds of things. ...I don't know whether I should ask them to stop fighting or not- come on, I obviously let them fight with their hearts' content when we are at home, but constant fighting in public with relatives present? And they tell me to shut up and snap at me to don't even speak to them when I ask.. *scoff* Makes me wonder why the hell do I even bother.

I will try to write as soon as possible again- with the storm hitting Korea tonight, I think there's actually quite a good chance for my family's plane ticket getting canceled.. *shakes head* who knows, I might have ample of time at hands if that happens. For now? I am busy.

It's probably too complicated for my mind to create a whole new setting.. I do wish to have the next RP have more of a timed setting. If we have something like a doomsday clock in place, we will all be pushed towards a direction of progress.

Good evening, I've been gone quite some time but Dragon found me and brought me back for RP reasons.

I'm always up for a new RP and, if you need someone to host it, I am willing to do it. Paul says he'll come back and co-host it, too.

Really not sure why I disappeared in the first place, now that I think about it, but I'm back at last.

T'was a grand adventure full of epic deeds and great heroes, worthy of song. There were hobbits and house-elves and a large rubber chicken. We fought goblins and caterpillars and door-to-door salesmen. We killed a troll with a towel and a packet of biscuits.

There was even cake.
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III

This. You shouldn't write stuff like this when I'm trying to sleep. Now I'm just.. not able to close my eyes.
I might try to recruite somebody else again. Maybe Jedakiller again, or a new face. Depends on the fact if it's needed.

Also, I'm starting to get jealous about the fact I wasn't conciously able to be part of the tale above me Only to know a cake without me existed makes me cringe.

I fed it to the goat, to distract the leprechaun, so we could steal his pot of gold. Which we then used to beat him to death. I wanted his hat, it was green :)

The fact that it was magic was irrelevant. The only thing that mattered was the colour.

Don't worry RS, it was not a cake worth much interest. The gold from the leprechaun would buy better ones.

I don't remember, they were kinda dented and bloody when we finished with them (did you know leprechauns bleed blue? Amazing the things you learn when slaughtering innocent magical creatures.)

We traded them to the water fairy for her magic beans, which we gave to the cow for her ribbon, which we traded to a dinosaur for a purple tennis racket. We gave that to the 2nd son of the king of frogs for a pebble he found on the floor, which in we traded to a hermit crab for a pair of diamond boots. We were going to give the boots to a flamingo for a watering can but he wouldn't shut up so I beat them to death with the diamond boots and kept the watering can. I gave the boots to cindarella so she could go hiking but I kept the watering can, never know when you might want to water some plants. Or grow berries for your pokemon. 

There is something really wrong with me....

Well, I don't know how many more people are going to join, so I've just gone ahead and started it off.
Apologies in advance that it seems to repeat itself, I'll try to avoid showing both sides of a crime in the future, especially in the same post.

I'll see if I can get something posted late this night. I'll try to contact Jedakiller once more, I think he'll have a liking to such a setting.

EDIT: I'm also trying to get another friend of mine to RP. Jeda has finished his exams, I'm expecting to hear from him soon.

We have dwarf women that bake applepie, though I miss my madstuff :(
I'm almost desperate for Jedakiller, he still ignores me ::)

This pub was both famous and infamous for lax security and rules- any teenager could actually get a good drink
Kainy, I chuckled a bit at this part. I will explain why. :D
I'm being very subtle with all the hints I'm throwing out there with my character, even the narrator has it's part. I'm putting in a lot more things that you carefully need to read, instead of just pointing it out and explain why this happens like that instead of so.

The reason Mytthal got his drink, was because he was an orphan, and orphans don't cause much trouble if you sell them a drink or too. I wouldn't say only this pub was famous over the drinking bit, every bar would be, instead of the Higher East area pubs. There's no need to change the text, this is my excuse of gettin my word out that Jedakiller is stalking the threads!

True, but I said it because it wasn't only alcohol *shrug*, famous enough to be known to the general population- and also infamous for it.

And saw Jedakiller's application myself.. ;) Happily waiting for more posts from others. Considering my own posts being far too large, I am wondering if I should try writing shorter.. I never seem to be able to find the ending/pausing point

I am actually writing short ones, because that fits into what I'm getting at. Jeda still has this style of writing that reminds me of someone who wants to explain a comic book action scene, but couldn't quite find the perfect words for the scene. This is fine, though, as I'm always ready to help him when he's stuck :D
I'm sorry if this is coming over harshly, it wasn't meant like that in any way. I'm always amazed by the fact he can discribe such scenes perfectly to me in dutch, but lacks that a bit in english.

I just love how he has an Assassins Creed hybrid character ::)

I expect him to write something today, maybe tomorrow.

It looks like he couldn't finish it last night. If I'm correct, he was over half way done.

I'm going East after my next post (count on a small 12 hours after this post). Not really sure what I'm going to do there, other than making trouble with the locals.
Does anyone care to cross by, exchange some eye-contact and some monologue profiling?

I would say use mine if you want, but mine.. Happen to be too manipulative assassin.. Might interfere. *shrug* It's RP, rs.. Drag any character in so long as it's nothing too drastic and plausible.



I apologise for double post in advance.. Deleted previous post just in case, though.

Someone take up where I left off from College or Brotherhood, whichever it is from..

The offer is, in summary, an offer of support and insider information regarding the current situation with the Cult from the criminals and gangs, in return of the College and Brotherhood's co-operation until the situation with the Cult is over. Ramoir will be hesitant to reveal his actual moniker as an assassin and try to get deal out of his skills that they can sense/feel, but if it comes down to necessity would do so. I am considering to use 'Cinereo', Latin for ash-gray.. For some reason, I think that colour fits. Umbra (ghost, shade, shadow, dusk, etc) is too tacky for my taste.. That name is Ramoir's oldest moniker he (or she) was known for since he first became an assassin, so that makes it slightly over 35-years old moniker.

Magic is fun. I've been hinting that my character has his own problems with magic, even if he knows it, or not. Might be time to act on that, though it would mean I'll be stuck here near the center of the city. Meh, it will work out, like it mostly does ;D
Title: Re: RP Forum Discussion Thread III
Post by: KainCrow on June 22, 2013, 09:57:07 AM
*shrug* Am certain you saw what I did to Ramoir.. Ramoir, if she can help it, doesn't use magic at all- or at least never hint that she can use magic personally without different enchanted items. More out of necessity, though.

It's similar to what she does to herself- she never refers herself as she, even in her own mind- it's always 'he' unless she needs it- obviously she doesn't have any aversion to dress-up as a poor orphan girl looking for food unlike many males would. For her, magic is something she learned because her mentor insisted, and only useful in hiding her heritage as a half-elf and girl, then as a hidden ace to get out of the wrong situation when *wark* hits.. Other than that you saw what she does with the Magic Suppression Bracelet that had been modified to react only to her so that only she can activate and deactivate them (why else would an assassin place it on herself?) ...For her, no real use other than using it on herself.. But I guess it also can be used for capture.

Magic, other than my own character's setting.. Is always fun to mess with. A good reason why I always love to take mage/assassin type characters in any online game, RP, and RPGs.. *shrug* interesting, and keeping things unpredictable by definition.. Very open ended, illogic turned logic.

Oh, I have a plan. A wild one for certain, though, a you might've gotten from my Application, magic came sudden, which leaves almost no room for tutoring.
Hinting he can't hide it, neither control every bit of mana he has.

My apologies, graduation and job applications have been in my way. I'll get a post up as soon as I can.

Will be if anyone posts.. It would be shame to see another RP abandoned :(

Good luck in finding job, Metal Choc- I hope you will find one soon, and if you already had, congratulation.

I'd recommend poking some of the old RP members through the e-mail function. You'll might get some success though it ;)
