    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.

    Hmm, Perhaps instead of a wargame perhaps it is an espionage tool, like spying and stuff. Where real agents are controlled by the "Players," this guild of Dis'ii sounds too medieval how about "The Shades of Dis'ii" ...? No Classes, but how about specialities, like heavy weapons, Tech, infiltration. i think that is a better idea, so while every Agent has a speciality, the "players," can use different agents for different tasks. Perhaps I can be the leader of the team, while you are my second in command. I lead Squad 1, you lead squad 2. Lets say, 2-4 man/woman squads. At the start, We wait for the other "players," and then we begin training. Just some ideas.

    I like teh idea, how about if Squad 1 has the experienced payers and Squad 2 has teh newbies. Also you should work on the title, dibs on character sheet!

    Character Sheet

    --Basic Info--
    Name: (Name in real life)
    Age: (Dunno if we should add this)
    Appearance: (Derp)
    Personality: (Derp x2)
    Biography: (Derp x3)
    --Gamer Info--
    Username: (Name in game)
    Appearance: (Without armor)
    Armor: (The three armor you drew on first page)
    Rank: (Ranked by mask colors)
    Specialty: (Stuff your character is good at)
    Specialty Mastery: (Verified by how complicated your mask design is)
    Faction: (North or South Earth, I think we should have traitors)

    You can add some more if ye want. In this game you will role play more in the game life but there is instances you need to role play in real life, like:

    SERVER SHUTDOWN:
    'The "Shadow of Dis'ii" server has shutdown, sorry for the inconvenience. Please go back later.'
    SCHOOL:
    School is still here ye know, unless you are old enough not to attend school. Don't worry though this will only be until 12:00 NN
    JOBS:
    This is worse for teh adults this will let them go until 2:00 PM
    SLEEP AND MEALS:
    Dude. You need to sleep and eat sometime.
    MORE TO COME:
    YOU ADD MORE

    Too complicated, we need an original RP yes, but not one that is confusing. People won't join. This isn't going to be a game, it's like a secret society, and all the people will be adults and this is their "Job." The "players," use different agents each mission, so the armor and rank of each agent is different so that doesn't matter. Some ideas.

    So wait, is this how the agent selection gonna be? There will be like a row of cards and the agents name, appearance and other stuff will be there and the player will just choose? Also should we have real people going on missions with the controlled agents I mean like without a player to control him? So in my character sheet the Basic Info stays and the Gamer Info goes? Why am I asking these many questions? Why am I asking about why I am asking too many questions? Okay, okay I'll stop. Hehehe

    I the agents will be nameless agents that all wear similar armour and masks.

    It would be nice if we could at least somehow customize the agents our characters use (like the masks for example, they could work as something that can identify us). That way we can tell who is using which agent. That can really help in a battle because I'm sure all of the RP characters have their own specialities. It's hard to tell who is who if everyone just picks a random appearance.

    Just a little suggestion ^^.

    Oh, by the way, most RPs that are mission based pretty much die during the first mission. The problem is usually the fact that there are too many RP characters at the same point. The squads sound good but if they work on the same mission, it's still going to get confusing if the squads come into contact.

    Maybe, the first mission (Tutorial mission) the 2 squads will work together but will never see each other, to lessen the confusion but still like cooperating.

    Well, what about more of an inceptiony thing? The people dont know which one is them the player or the agent, because of the bond between them. They both wear the same armor and mask.Every one can pick an appearance suited to their speciality. Like the heavy weapons guy can pick an appearance with Some bandoliers and a minigun. I think we should make it one 3-5 person squad instead of two squads.

    Sure you can have that, but what if. We exceed over that 3-5 player limit? Also I agree, we should customize our own mask and armor. Then in Agent Selection Screen, could you pick the same agent again and again evolving or getting used to that person?

    What's that one thing then? I don't know if you mentioned this before, but maybe we can have real players and gamer players. The real players only have real experience but only one chance to die.
    I like the armor designs, how did you get them? "As my friend Vladimir would say... You can only die once, so make sure it's worth it" "Our story, you see ladies and gentlemen, is one of many thousands. The world will not suffer if it ends to soon" Just waned to paste that for the RP

    That would be difficult, and would break the don't control other people rule. There wouldn't be much freedom of choice.
    I just randomly searched for them. Sort of copyright infringement on the second quote, as it is quoted from ezio, and it's in your sig.
    Like the first quote though. Perhaps some kind of story twist that i can devise. I will PM it to you when i come up with it.

    I wasn't trying to copy off Battlefield 3 or Assassin's Creed Revelations I just wanted to use them later in the RP. Also you can choose if you are a real agent or a user. Also the real agent that is being played by the RPer has NO CONTROLLER, I repeat NO CONTROLLER.

    How about their hideouts? Right the "Shades of Dis'ii" is a secret organization specialized in infiltration, espionage and technology? How about if they are underground like the Followers of Romulus in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood? Also what is the TITLE of our RP? How about if our starting point of our RP is a tall skyscraper with the newbies appearing through the elevator, then at the end of our explanation bla bla bla, we jump off the skyscraper and activate hover board !

    List of Clarified Things:
    1. There are two squads in the starting mission. In the starting mission, the two squads doesn't see or have any interaction with each other. These squads help each other by either: deactivating locks and cameras, clearing the halls or battleground of enemies or leaving marks to signify a meaning or something.

    2. Zoilist will be the leader of Squad 1, ManicAlchemist will be the leader of Squad 2. Both of the leaders are black masks and are masters in their specialty. Squad Leaders will only GUIDE but let the squad members do the dirty work. If needed or if someone is seriously injured, the squad leader has an affirmative to do the dirty work.

    3. A character sheet has not been assembled and the plot is being made by Zoilist. A title is also needed.

    4. "Shades of Dis'ii" is both the name of the secret organization and espionage tool. Note: "Shades of Dis'ii" is NOT, I repeat NOT a war game.

    5. There are two kinds of agents, the user agents and the real agents. User agents control other agents (except for RPers being a real agent) using a terminal similar to terminal in the movie "Gamer". Real agents are there in skin an blood and has only one chance to die.

    6. User Agents can be in danger if an enemy unit finds their terminal, that is the reason why ManicAlchemist suggested that the bases of the "Shades of Dis'ii" is underground.

    7. ALL players EXCEPT the squad leaders are white masks (low rank) and is a beginner or adept in their specialty.

    8. Starting armor will be chosen on the three designs that Zoilist showed in the first page of this thread, the color can be customized but you cannot change the armor, attach any special mods or even write your name on it until approved so by the Squad Leader.

    9. If you are approved by the Squad Leader to customize your armor it means that you have reached grey mask level (middle rank) and is already an adept or semi-master in their specialties.


    (These are the clarified stuff for me, you can change some or all if you want. You are the game master.)

    Change number 8, I will select this armor as the base armor. Here it is
    Um, I think that the RPer's are all going to be the real people doing the missions, and I shall be the leader of team one, and the "Controller," that relays the orders through a neural implant. The people behind the consoles will not be RP'ers, because of the plot twist I have devised. I think thats about it, um instead of mask color how about Right shoulder color. Black is novice, Grey is adept, and white is master.
