Jester, could you kindly shift your post below my recent one?
Oh, and to keep things moving along smoothly I ask that we each take turns posting, meaning that once someone post everyone else goes. Kind of like a circle. I'd just like to avoid speed posting and double posting is all.
Two: I'm considering jumping ahead to tomorrow morning if that's alright with you guys. I'm liking the interactions between the characters, but I would just like your thoughts on the matter and see if you would be okay with skipping to tomorrow or would rather continue with the current day.
A journey to the ancient land of Tirush and Partha's tribe's origins, where the Great Fire that is in all true Dragons lies. It's endemic to her tribe, but the Fire resonates with all Dragons. Partha will have to go there very soon to seek an answer.
She's a musclebound Hellhound obsessed with fighting the way of the warrior. She's in charge of a pack of like-minded Hellhounds dislikes that her sister Dravela and her daughter Rix have "gotten soft" in her eyes and occasionally belittles them for it. Xinderas may seem hard on the surface, but she has a soft spot for her family. Her abilities include enhancing her melee attacks with DE fire and shooting fireballs.
Kenzie's an energetic Blaster (fanmade mamono) who loves to blow stuff up with her explosions. She's usually very excited for an adventure whenever the possibility of one comes up. She comes equipped with thrusters to increase her movement speed and she fires a variety of explosives including, but not limited to cannons, rockets, and grenades. On rare occasions she does suffer one of two glitches. The first makes her briefly forget who her allies are and perceive everything and EVERYONE as a threat, so she'll fire her explosives everywhere. The second glitch is essentially a DE style nuke that can cover an entire city and transform it into a Demon Realm. This can also happen if she suffers enough damage.
Spiga: A Jinko trained to use the aid of the spirits in her fights. She can summon a katana, shoot fireballs, use the spirits to heal her allies, and can even temporarily transform into a giant samurai tiger. She takes on a motherly figure of the trio and often has to keep Kenzie out of trouble.
Micah: A Large Mouse who is skilled in the art of stealth and firearm usage. She likes to wear clothing that hides her figure and is usually a rational mamono. She prefers to use a tranquilizer gun with sleeping darts to neutralize her targets, but she also uses other gadgets such as antimagic darts and petrification bombs for more dangerous threats. She tends to avoid direct confrontation, instead opting to take down her opponents from a distance.
He's a young man who is currently learning how to use wind powers. He is often dominated by his Hellhound wife Rix and was a former Nope Industries employee. His favorite weapon is a bullpup and he's a bit of a coward when it comes to fights, so he prefers to stay out of trouble or try to defuse the situation if he sees an opportunity to do so.
Dravela is basically the diplomatic sister of the three Hellhounds. She's also the nicest and most helpful. Unlike her niece and sister, she prefers to try to find a peaceful solution to a problem before resorting to violence. She tends to have a better relationship with Rix than Xinderas and also works as the bodyguard of Wavedraw's governor.
The best I have is to try to make your characters well-rounded. Give them flaws along with positive personality traits, and make sure those flaws affect those characters from time to time. Also try to steer away from making a dark and edgy character who is all about revenge, those characters plague enough of the RP market (not that you need to, but it's just a suggestion). A good OC is one that someone can relate to. Now this part is just my personal bias, but if you can, try to avoid overpowering your character to the point of a Mary Sue, it tends to get on people's nerves.
That's my advice, but I'm certain that there are other sites out there with helpful tips for making an OC.
Don't take control of other people's characters. That is bound to grant you a swift kick out the door.
Be patient. Not everyone operates on the same schedule when it comes to role-playing.
Try to avoid auto-hitting. Basically, give the other player a chance to evade the attack. It will make combat more fun and engaging.
Have your OC take a hit and a loss every once in a while. Always being on top is going to grind some people's gears and it gets stale after a while.
Learn to take criticism. Critique is a helpful thing when role-playing as it can help you improve your characters down the line. Acting like you're above everyone else is guaranteed to be a recipe for disaster. We were all novices when we started out RPing.
Yeah, I saw. It was pretty funny. But, I have to say, after reading his book, I'd advise him to stick to making funny videos and and at least, if he's going to continue writing, to take his own advice.
I constantly forget. One time I wrote myself a note, but it was written on pink paper, so my later self thought it was a note from a girl. I wrote back, and pretty soon I believed I was in a relationship with a girl who was writing me from the past, but my future self was cockblocking me because I could never meet her. I broke up with me because I couldn't remember her birthday.
I honestly don't care Snake. The internet has fucked shit on it, what else is new? I once saw a video of two girls in stilettos stomp an iguana to death because? I don't know. I guess because some fucked twat out there gets off on that shit. I know there's garbage on the net, I just don't seek it out anymore because I have standards. I'm not a dumpster diver.
Nekojishi in retrospect wasn't THAT bad, it was just dumb. However it serves as a checkpoint for my inevitable decline in prestige. So I'm at the point where I say, "FUCKIN WHATEVA! I DO WHAT I WANT!" Now get out of my way! I'm gonna go train till I can do the FINAL FLASH!
S9 is going to kick off his major story, and his arc and my final arc will intersect at one point. By the next RP I host (not counting the Adoption) will be the beginning of my final arc, which will involve two groups of characters, starting with Lilrava's group.
S9 for the first general half, and it's to be determined for the second general half. Likely S9, perhaps BT if Jorge is in a position to help, and you, and possibly Scorn. But it's dependent on what happens the first half.
I hate to be ambiguous, but it depends. Likely it'll be semi-retirement, because by that time I'll probably be burned out and ready to move on. But I also have two characters, one of which is Eothred, that I may use to continue.
I heard Flame, I'm looking forward to that one. I'll be spectating.
As for the enemy, I'm not giving away anything I haven't already said, but it's not a singular threat. It's not a world-destroying monster or a rampant god or a Dark Lord (tm). It's not something you can beat by fighting it. It's several antagonists who will be instigating something a long time in the planning, several events of which have already happened in previous RPs whether the participants knew it or not.
Then I can't guarantee she will help. She may very well be dead. If you have important means for her, say so. If not. Then player decisions will decide whether or not she remains a character of note. The choice belongs to you all.
Armata is dead. My main is inevitably going to die, thus my direct involvement with any roleplay. If Imperia has purpose, I'll keep her around. If not, then my final RP will be just that.
I would like to help doc, in fact I really want to be part of the "fun" but I'm not about force plotting my way in. So after Scorn's chaos is over I'll be in a better position to aid you.
Until then you'll have to face the debt collectors on your own. Unless I sneak into whitemarch for some reason I can't properly help you fend them off. The best I can do is let you use some of the fortune I had hoarded.
What? I'm getting armor? Damn it! You ruind the surprise! It better be some kind of mech suit or mithril chain mail that gives me the ability to fly on giant golden wings of light. That would be bad ass.
Now that I think of it... yes... giant golden wings of light
Honestly, I couldn't care less about the politics. What I will say though is that some of these people need to grow up and realize that it's not the fifties anymore, and those SJWs aren't really helping either.
Some of them just need to take a step back and chill.
Yeah, that sums it up well. Around here, its like, it's an issue that would go away if people stopped making it an issue, because everyone gets along well for the most part until people on both sides make a big deal about it.
I like the Hailfire, but it's really hard to pick. I'd probably say my favorite ships are the Mandalorian Dreadnought and the Consular-class gunships, because they're versatile and don't approach the idiotically huge size that retconning Star Wars writers seem to favor. They can be modified for all kinds of duties.
Ground vehicle? Gosh. Probably the Corellian hover-transports for the same reason. Versatility and protection without having to worry about wheels.
Flame, if you like futuristic military vehicles, you really should look at the vintage Mega Force toys. They're some amazing designs, and they're still relatively inexpensive on ebay. They're like vehicles from a shooter game, in that they come in a wide variety of classes/sizes.
Well now, this is a pleasant surprise! I hop on the site, read a little bit and BOOM! My buddy Flame has answered question I've had. "Is Black Panther worth a damn or just another average super hero movie?" Well it got Flame's seal of approval! Now I know to check it out. Good thing too. Marvel movies were starting to get boring and generic. Finally somebody does T'Challa justice and puts him in something good.
I knews it! BTR likes chibi stuff. The U.S. military at it's finest! (Just joking with the sarcasm BT. Thanks for serving) Now go shoot terrorist insurgents you brilliant badass John Rambo/John Matrix motha fucka!
Seriously though BT, use 1980's action movie one liners more often.
I'm not a weeb (says the guy with a chibi rabbit maid on his kit) I got it for the memes and the looks I'll get for having that. I can't wait to see the looks of dissapointment on their face. Or even better if they know what that's from. Even I don't know where this is from.
Well, Hound, I did mention that giving him some of your stuff is anamount to a peace offering. You and did the opposite, which is basically declaring a pastry war on him. Nobody wins this kind of war against GLadus. Not even me.
Yes you gave me fair warning Jester, but you didn't say, "HEY! Gladus is an eating machine! When it comes to sweets, he can out eat a starving Saiyan!" No! Instead you was all, "Hey! Jackass! Got some bling for ya! Take that shit and adore my swag bitch! Check out my kickass mask! Here's a tissue because your wet from my awesome! Oh by the way, Gladus likes sugary treats. So take heed and guard your pantry."
Gladus. That little Goomba. He tricked me with a card trick and fairy dust. I swear, the next time I see him.... we're gonna fight it out, on a videogame! Halo: Combat Evolved! Best out of three! You're going down flutter boy! While Cyndwella puts her head in her hands embarrassed.
"My FUCKING husband is passionately squaring off against a FUCKING butterfly on a FUCKING videogame! The FUCK am I doing with my FUCKING life?" Cyndwella- 2018
Well, from what I saw and heard, he only started eating like that because he overheard you stating you were gonna keep yer stuff locked somewhere. It's like inviting a rival king to a non-aggression pack and speaking from the other room about how you're planning a sudden invasion while he's still here.
To get a piping hot plate of spaghetti and meatballs, with parmigiana. Then have Gladus break dance. Ah shit, my insanity is acting up. Good thing I caught it. The people in my ceiling were beginning to describe to smell of Tuesday.
Bah, stop jerkin my gherkin Doc. Well at least everybody knows I'm not 100% perfect. My weaknesses are beautiful crazy Wisps, adorable nieces/daughters, fine cigars and liquor. I'm easier to defeat than Yamcha.
Technically I am. Inconceivably strong, sporting a physical body of utter perfection, a gruffy rouge's face that's handsome to boot, wears all black, incredibly tanned skin ANNNNNNNNND, I won over one of Victivius' wives. I mean DAMN! Look at my avatar bitches! I'm fuckin amazing. I'm a regular Gary Sue. At least I'm not a shitty one. I'd like to think to some degree I'm acceptable. Then Snake starts posting pictures of Tak and I blush like a bitch in heat. Adorable little slither monster.
Oh, you fuckin guys. Your combined powers of insanity have broken my brain entirely, broken my brain entirely, broken my brain entirely, broken my-(Eva kicks me) Ah shit I forgot the applebutter.... WHO ARE YOU?!
Hound just admitted that he's a Gary Sue. I'm impressed that he had the guts to do that. Others would just get defensive and and either block you or spit vitriol at you. Then again, there are a few who are willing to wheel themselves out of that territory.
Finally some rest for me. Damn, what a week, I'm overworked as fuck.
Gary Stue? Heh give me a break, I maybe powerful but I'm an average looking guy, not loved and worshipped by masses as their savior, not even the Emmerians that I did in fact saved. They respect me, but I deserved it trough my choices and the way I lead the country. Waifus are waifus, but there is no army of Mamono and/or Human girls waiting in line for M autoraph or a glimpse of me.There is tose folks rom 'The Cult of Destruction' but I find them wierdos. I'm not very liked by the other people from this world, those I interact with and those who know me from stories.
Finally, I do not sport some flashy clothes or haircuts.
The thing is, even in power, I'm not Stu, since there are Lucius and the Creator, both stronger than me, and considering My growth in MGE was from a toddler to a powerouse, it's not some issue.
Just because people RPed more and had more exposition does not mean I was always like this. It's not my fault I did not RPed as much, but even I got my ass handed to me. In fact, many of us retconned and boosted their characters, either in power, poularity and such...
LoS, you're right, we are all Stus in a way, shape or form, but is that really bad considering the setting?
Well, just reading trough RPs/stories one can tell that. Each one have some 'unique gimmick', something only they have or can produce or know or something along those lines, or they have a backing of someone uber powerful or influential or both.
Its all cool though, as it is about fun, this site is or should be primarily about waifuing rather that some drama play.
Yeah, so what of it? I surely won't do it on a whim nor to please someone. I'll do it to fit the story I'm trying to tell, otherwise it would all been for shit, just wasted time and nothing more. I introduced some things from my own created worlds where there is 5 canon Horvat's. From a Fleet commander to a common nerd, where Arael exist and he was 'missing' where no Watcher could locate him, where it fit his MGE appearence. So that would screw even my main canon, and I can't have that. Again, it is not my fault my story is not progressing. It's either lack of time on my part or absence of some key players to my story development. I was about to marry Langwidere before going in search for Zen befoe the few chapters where I'd depower.
I thought about it, but it won't be easy to replace the plot almost entirely just like that and still not feel it was shoehorned into the story that will end up in disappointment, mostly mine.
I figured I'd rather make stories and maybe some RP (if time allows) on Aro's past, who knows, maybe even how Nozomi and Octavius met. Maybe by then I'll figure something good to keep me going forward.
I just recived an Email with the work plan for about a month and I can say I will have time to reply daily no problem, so now I can start or continue any projects in progress with people. I just hate making someone wait for replies, to me is just disrespectful, so better to cancel/postpone ongoing and place on hold planed work with others included.
I'll try to take advantage of my extra free time, being overworked really drains your creativity, but I'm still kind of suffering of writers block. I hope I'll manage to put something good on paper.
I won't say he's changed, but I'll do an "Armata" with his character and make him less evil to the point where you can talk to the guy, but you're still a bit cautious. Also, yes. Forjod better talk to him! If he don't, he'll eat your SOOOOOOOOUUUUUUL! Not really. Seriously though Forjod has to be there and talk with him.
I'm working with Scorn right now. Trying to convince him to fill you in on his plans and roles for each us in his final RP. I read over his notes, gotta say I'm impressed how much thought and detail is in this. Literally everyone has a role or cameo if they participate.
Yeah, tell me about it. Guy just out of nowhere goes, "Hey, I'm bringing into the world a giant savage killing machine beast that is a god and can destroy everything, you mind if we bring Cerberus back to life to help kick it's ass?" To which I stared at Scorn blankly before agreeing.
