An rp section, huh?

Post by Demon on Wed Jul 18, 2012 2:31 pm

So... anyone up for an rp? 83 One-on-One or group is fine with me, and I'm open to plot/genre ideas. (Not a big fan of slice-of-life, though.)

I just generally don't like romance-centered plots and if there is a relationship, for them to be able to develop. Along that line, I've actually only ever rped mxf (been both the guy and the girl) seriously, but I'm open to rping mxf, fxf and mxm. (Kinda doubting my abilities with the last one. >_<)

Just keep in mind that I haven't done an rp (aside from MU) in many years so I'm a bit rusty.

So, anyone interested? =)

So, questions:
1. Did you want to do one-on-one or group?
2. Any genres in mind you want to try out?

If anyone else wants to join in, post at any time. =) You'd have to make due with a group of three otherwise.

What kind of fantasy? Medieval, modern, supernatural, steampunk, historical, sci-fy, etc...?

Huh, I'm already doing a medieval and a sci-fy one, so why not modern? =)

Because I'm evil, Demon~. >83

So what sort of modern fantasy RP? Are we going for the supernatural creatures blended in with human society angle or more people with strange powers? Or something else entirely?

Hmm... I think I might like to join in with this. My preference would be for something like, as Rev said, "people with strange powers." Give me a bit to think on it and I'll see if I can come up with a good plot hook.

Okay, after a night of thinking on it, here's my proposed plot outline.

The World: Like our own, for now at least. The political system is just a bit different though (just so we don't get into an uncomfortable discussion of real-world politics within the RP).

The Setting: A university (name and location to be determined). High school settings are really overdone in anime, so this will be something just a bit different.

This university is seemingly a normal, high-end university, save for a couple of odd scholarships that no one applies for, and are offered to seemingly-random people across the world. To someone who regularly attends the university, the oddities within it start to add up:

-The Art building has a few exhibits on permanent display which don't seem to be art at all. No one seems to remember the artists behind them, and rules from the administration prevent removal of these exhibits.

-The Archaeology department maintains a closet of oddities, which have been found all over the world, but seem to match no known culture (and occasionally seem to imply a high-level of technology, though none of it is functional).

-The architecture of the Math building is just a bit odd. The building is square, and all the walls are perfectly straight, but the corners are a bit wider than perfect right angles.

-The on-campus dormitory has one more row of windows visible from outside than it has accessible floors, though the top row of windows are always dark. The official explanation is that it's the thirteenth floor, and enough people complained about having to live on it that they no longer assign any students there. This doesn't explain why the elevators only go up to the twelfth floor though, or why there are stairs to the roof that don't have any visible exit to the thirteenth floor.

The Characters: Various students who came to the university on scholarship, plus a few faculty members and other employees of the university who seem to have agendas of their own. These students gradually begin to notice strange abilities awakening within them at the university, and their dreams begin to paint a coherent narrative of a past life, but within a world that's nothing like our own.

The Plot: My writer-sense is telling me to keep it a secret. Razz But in broad strokes, the student characters will find themselves gradually drawn into a conflict from another world, with different students ending up on different sides. It's unclear who's on the right side of this conflict, or even if either side is. This other world doesn't seem to exist anymore, but various items throughout the university seem to be connected to it, and there just might be a way to bring parts of that world back.

What do people think? Sound interesting?

I'm certainly intrigued, especially as to what you have planned, so if this gets up and running I'll take part. 83

So it's like a cross between a "school of the gifted" and an intergalactic mystery/war? Sounds interesting and complex. XD Never been to a university campus before though, so I'll have to wing that part and what life is like on a campus. =P Anyway, I'm down.

Hehe, cool. Glad you both like it! I can always give you tips on what university life is like out-of-character, so I wouldn't worry about that part too much.

I talked to Shezaei Neko about this as well, and she'd considering joining in. It looks like we might have enough people to do something fun. Time to start thinking of character ideas now.~

Sweet! More people! <3

What I understand of this so far: this is a sci-fy mystery where people gain powers.

And I happen to be up at a little past five in the morning, why not ask some questions:

1. What kind of powers are we talking? I guess they link with this alien planet, but I don't know what the alien planet is like so I can't really think of abilities that the aliens might have. Like Ben-10 thing going on, or things you'd think of if the characters were superheroes? (Sorry for the question dump, but I don't really know where to begin.)

2. Grah! Should I be a student? A teacher? I dunno! DX (This one's rhetorical.)

Well, this isn't set in stone, but the world I had in mind was sword-and-sorcery based, so the powers might be the type you'd see in a medieval fantasy. (For instance, one person could learn fire magic.) But that can easily be changed if people like something else.

It's medieval magic, correct? I ask because I'm already planning a medieval fantasy rp (which will probably be posted here for the editing quirks), but if it's just the type of magic people used and fantasy technology and not elves themselves or something, then I'm still okay. =) And sorry.

Ironically, I'm also doing another "worlds collide" rp, but that's with two currently existing races that end up in a war due to their worlds merging over space dimensions... or whatever Rev said before. o3o It's not finding the mystery of an ancient civilization but more of a Earth military war rp with sci-fi elements.

Yeah, just the magic, though as I said, this can all be changed to how it works for other people. We could also make the other world a modern+magic setting, and try to figure out how that might work.

I got an idea for the name of the university now: Midland University. (Which links to the theme of this setting.) What do you all think?

I don't see anything wrong with it.

Are there things to figure out before we start?
