Okay, RP

Postby Agito on Fri Jan 29, 2010 10:52 pm

Since everyone seems to be interested in the idea of an RP, how about we have a little talk about that?

I am basically game for anything, but I have a few ideas in particular.

1. I probably mentioned a sci-fi thing before. Note that it would be fairly soft--that is, it would not necessarily have everything based on realistic expectations of the direction of technology and would likely include fantasy elements. My idea was to mix a bunch of random stuff, where, if you include things like Star Wars and StarFox and much of the rest of popular sci-fi, for that matter, you will probably err on the soft side. If you want details, ask.

2. A Pokémon RP, taking some other aspects of fantasy. In essence, this particular idea would be about people who must form high-level bonds with their Pokémon. Why this is varied from needing to understand a Pokémon that deeply before being able to train, to coming-of-age, to something not unlike being a Ranger. I think it would make a decent adventure or town RP.

3. Something just more fantasy-esque. I am somewhat interested in a wolfy RP (it would probably be Acruan in nature; it would include foxes, tagnira, etc.). I am up for suggestions as far as something based more on general fantasy goes, though.

If we got the right people for the previous RP I intended to run (Journey to the West, I think?), then I would pick that back up gladly, but most people do not like playing non-combat characters.

Sci-fi sounds pretty appealing. I dont think we've ever really done something that was like that, so it'd be interesting to try it.

The Pokemon one sounds pretty cool too. With it being so focused on developing a bond with your Pokémon (I'm assuming just one, correct?) it could progress pretty well story-wise.

Fantasy seems to go well with everyone. Not completely sure what you mean by wolfy though. I'm assuming everyone would be wolves?

As for the Journey to the West thing, I honestly wouldnt mind it lacking combat. As long as the story progresses and it's easy to go with then I'm fine with it.

Yeah, the fact that I have never been in a real sci-fi RP is what makes me so curious as to how it would work. I think we would get along with it just fine. XP

Mostly just one Pokémon, aye. If it was based more around trainers, then I would allow others. However, that special bond would still only be with one Pokémon, and it would be absolutely essential to give that individual special attention due to the deep link that they hold.

Well, like I said, it would probably be Acruan, as well. The idea is that it also includes foxes, tagnira, nerakai, shashi, and hybrids thereof.

The reason I wanted to adhere to my party structure so strictly for Journey to the West is that it is hardly practical, cost-wise, to have very few escortees, but it is also dangerous to have many more escortees than escorts. I think we just needed one person, too.

Okay, so I hate double-posting, but if I am going to force people back here and give them an RP, I may as well post about what the current idea is. |D

So it is like that second idea, up there, on that first post. The difference is that these people, who form a very close bond with one of their Pokémon, are banned from League activities because they have a natural advantage over other trainers. However, when it comes to problems (such as the theft of legendary Pokémon, attempted destruction of the world, etc.), these guys are the first to respond, and darn are they good at it.

Even if it does not go the route with the super-special Pokéfriends, I imagine that it would be pretty lax in terms of rules, as long as we were reasonable about things.

I rather like the idea. If a few people give the word, I will stop asking so many questions and just get it going. That said, suggestions are still quite welcome.
