    Question Gonna start a new RP

    I am going to start a new RP, I am taking suggestions because my last one kinda sucked.
    So, I am going to craft a RP from Fellow user's suggestions.

    lol you have 69 posts.

    butsrsly, I wish I could get into the RPing but it seems so closed off to people who aren't in the "circle" or something of that extent, not to mention that the section seems to be near death.. I don't want to start any myself, but I would love to join any. Regardless of it's success, I would like to join if you do start one!

    I know i was trying to keep that post count as long as possible lol. But no, anyone can RP. Just read the rules, check the post dates, and follow in the experts examples. Llwelyn, Screenfox, AoiRozengirl, people in The Tales of Amn are ridiculously good. to keep an RP going that long. Read up on old RP's to learn the basics. Don't copy them though, and no necroing old threads like a noob. Yeah, if anyone else wants to start an RP, then post.

    Well, hopefully I'll be able to check it out. The RP section hasn't even been touched in almost a week, though.. and the most recent post was completely unrelated to RPing.

    Try to be as original as possible Zoilist ^^. The more you have something more or less new in your RP, the better you'll gather people who want to try it out. For example something like "Fallout RP" can attract people but it's only going to work for those who have actually played the game. That's why it would be better if you could take some of the ideas of Fallout and shape them so that you can create something new. That way people who have never played or even heard of Fallout can join the RP since they don't need prior knowledge.

    Also something for you to ponder about: I always start creating my RPs with the intention of sharing a story with other people. I also want the people to affect the story so that they gain a foothold in the RP, that will help them to actually stay and become dedicated to the RP. You also have a big responsibility as the creator to keep the RP running. A nice metaphor which I've used a few times is that the other RPers can only lubricate the gears, the creator him-/herself has to make them turn. So if the RP is starting to slow down too much, don't be afraid to take charge and jump forward.

    Know that I'm not an expert or anything ^^. I just listed the things I usually do and so far they've proven successful. Good luck making that RP! I'll be sure to check it out if it pops up!


    @SqueezyTime: By the way, I don't believe there are any secret "circles" around here ^^. The only thing that could be called a circle is the group I lead but that's dedicated to a single RP. The board has become pretty quiet though. It usually happens around this time of year but this has been going for a long time now. Hopefully it'll become livelier once schools start again.

    Well, I have these idea for a roleplay, which includes various elements from various movies and video games. Here are some of them: Game Terminal- Avatar the Movie, it enables the player for this instance, the RPer, to control his desired game character. Parkour Movement and agile fighting style- Assassin's Creed Series. It's all in my head, I just can't put it in words. I am currently imagining the spawn oint for the new players and how I will be the instructor. I am also thinking the ranking system by colored masks and design. I hope I can get this out of my head soon.

    Ah The Almighty Takesh posts in my humble thread lol. Thanks for the advice. Manic, I like your idea, I might just use some elements of that. I was thinking more like the movie gamer, rather than avatar. Perhaps instead of assassins creed like movement and combat, A more original movement system. The player could choose a mask, but the armor that the character wears would be improved like so. These are my takes on your ideas, may the brainstorming continue.

    "The Almighty" ? Haha! Good one ^^. Glad to be of assistance. Don't be afraid to ask if you need any help!

    I see you already have some good ideas. Keep it up and you'll have a hot topic RP in a jiffy ^^.

    I also thought of a plot, I don't know how to make it into a good one but the foundations is in here:
    "On the year (Put futuristic year here), the world was at war they were divided into two parts. The southern part of the world is a war hungry people, attacking the Northern Part of the world. The Southern Part was more on people less on tech and north was more on tech and less on people. They found out a way to protect there people using a new game, called " The Guild of Dis'ii " The game provided a realistic view of their apocalyptic world and in no time it was the most famous thing ever talked about. " You can add more stuff but that is the main thing I thinking about. I also think the classes should be - Protector, Colossus, Shadow, Jaguar, Caliber and Javelin. The classes will be explained later. The starting scene would be the start of training, it's either me or you will be the main trainer and the other one will be the assistant. I think you should be because you have nicer role playing skills than mine.
