Actually it is intriguing, perhaps I'll join, once it begins. I can wait a month though.

Anyway, here's the {seel} of approval :shock:

Edit by Gryph: Please see my post below, I don't quite approve it yet.

That sounds interesting, Undead, but how much actual roleplaying will be involved? If it's going to be more about the puzzle than about developing the characters and plot, then it might be best suited to the Activities and Competitions area, especially given that turns, examining different rooms, etc. is liable to lead the characters to split up, which will make character interaction difficult.

It's a fine idea, but I don't think roleplaying is the section for it. If you still think it should go here, could you explain why?

The RP will actually rely on interaction, because people must interact to be able to solve the mystery, and they will also have the possibility to form alliances and relationships with other characters. The whole thing about turns is used so that people don't get unfair advantages, as I stated, and people will be allowed, in between rounds, to go around to talk to other players and interact, but when the next round starts they have to return to where they were before. One thought I had was that you might think that description and a storylike setting would not be incorporated into this, but players are encouraged to talk about what they're doing rather than just say it. For example:

"My character goes to the drawing room." Will not be accepted,

Whereas, "My character heads down the hallway, with the drawing room in mind. He walked slowly, pondering this mystery that lay before him. He passed several rooms on his way, but didn't care to notice what was going on inside. Deep in his thoughts, he didn't take care where he was going, and suddenly ran straight into another character. 'Oops, sorry,' my character said quietly, 'well, found any new clues?'" Will be accepted.

I hope this may persuade you to give my RP the {seel} of approval.

If you really think it will incorporate enough aspects of traditional roleplaying, you may post it here, but you may find that the game system and freestyle roleplaying start to clash- if players can move freely between the rounds, why don't they ever find clues between rounds? OOC, it's easy to answer- you don't want to give an unfair advantage- but IC it seems strange. Also, when players are actively trying to "win" a roleplay, their characters can easily turn into Mary Sues, since it will in effect be the player trying to solve the mystery.

Additionally, posting it to Activities and Competitions may help draw some people from there into the roleplaying aspect, introducing them to it and encouraging them to come over here and try out some other roleplays. A&C could really benefit from some logic puzzles like this- as popular as the half dozen pokemon eliminations are, I know a lot of people here would like something a bit more mentally challenging.

If you're still truely convinced it's definately a roleplay and not a competition, then you may include it here, but if it becomes too competative or otherwise un-roleplayish, I will move it to A&C.

I can see your reasoning, Gryph.... I think I'll go with what you say and post it in A&C. The only problem is that the people who join may not be able to adjust to the RP side of it. It would be greatly appreciated if someone who is a veteran RPer could join it, to give the others an example of how to play properly.

could i make an rpg?

Heres my idea:

Title: Becoming a pokemon master

Its like the oringinal games but an rpg

Setting Where ever you travel

PLot:To become the best pokemon champion
and defeat team rocket

Additional rules your poke mon dont have to be the original 100

Post subject: 

There already is a RBY Roleplay, but since that one is dead, I suppose you can create this one.

I give you the {seel} of approval :shock:

Also, welcome to Psypoke.

From Gryph: Please take some time to read over some other roleplays here at Psypoke, though, and ensure that you like the community enough to stay awhile. Staring your own roleplay requires a commitment, and if you fall down on the responsabilities involved you risk your game being shut down, which wouldn't be much fun for anyone.

Roleplay Name:Escape!
Roleplay Genre:Uhh, not too sure what this would be. I guess action sorta.

Setting:A giant perfect city... perfect to anyone who has never been inside it that is. This is a city that consumes every thing inside of it to become bleak and heartless, training unsuspecting visitors to be it's powerful army.

Plot:Bascially 8 *lucky* contest winners are sent to the perfect city where they will be given a tour of it. However the tour guide *mysteriously* disapears and now the group seems to be hunted down. They must escape and warn the world of the truth this city has.

Additional Rules:These 8 (Might be 10 depending upon signups.) special people have the power to creat a weapon from energy with their hands. Each person is only allowed to create one weapon, such as a sword, mace, bar, bow and arrow and even then these people do not know of these powers. They must be unlocked as they explore the city and a way to get out, by 8 different gems.

Obviously this will be somewhat violent (with the characters fending off the guards as they try to take them in), but this will hopefully be mild with such things as "He cut through the first guard, and moved to the next and the next before making his escape". No blood.

I will not be tolerant of who do not RP after they signed up. To keep the pace moving, if you have not RPed in a week you will be missing in the RP and if you have not RPed by a week and a half (10 days) then you will be captured by the guards. You still have the chance to RP and then RP to make a break for it or escape, but if you have not RPed for 2 weeks then you will be moved to a high security area where experiments will be taken and you will be one of them.

The plot of this came from an *awesome* flash from Clairvoyance. ... e_eng.html
Watch it, and I hope you'd get a better understanding of what I mean with the weapons forming from energy.

Sounds good, Siphai, you seem to have thought about this enough that you'll take care of the game. Be prepared to reduce the number of players from eight to five, though, and watch out for Mary Sues.

Be sure to set the time period during which this takes place, so you don't have jean-wearing, walkman-playing teens in the same game with the daughters of noble knights, unless that's what you're aiming for ;)

Edit: Also, if you want the roleplay to be "advanced", make sure you set up quality rules when you start- like a specific tense everyone should post in, and rules about grammar. I'm pretty loose with moderating for such things, as long as they're not blatantly disregarding the English language in favor of 133t I'm okay with it, so it's up to you to enforce stricter rules if you want them.

Post subject: 

Just a question, are we allowed to comment on others RPs in this thread, because if we are I'd like to say something about Siphai's.

Here it is: Siphai, your's sounds awesome. I'd really like to join it, but I'll be leaving, for about a month, in a couple of weeks. Is there any way that I could join it and play it under the circumstances?

I was just saying this now becasue it would be pretty stupid if I joined first and then told you.

Author:  Gryphflame [ Thu Jun 23, 2005 6:58 am ]
Post subject: 

You can probably PM that sort of question, Undead- we'd like to keep this board down to mostly just applications and our acceptance or comments on them.

Okay, sorry. I'll PM it to him now. :oops:

Another RP idea by yours truely 8)

Name: Midnight Crisis
Genere: Action, Adventure

Setting: Mid-evil time in the kingdom of Lothor, it's seems peaceful, and quite nice, minimum poverty, nice houses, etc.

Plot: A metero shower of unusually large rocks is headed stait for Lothor, and only the seven gaurdians of the elements can stop them! So now we try and save the kingdom by awakening the Gaurdians so they can defend us for the gaint rocks!

Additional Rules:
Can't play as a gaurdian, you can however play as a Human, Elf, Dwarf or a Snalak (Lizard person)
No killing people, yes there are weapons but you only use them to KO enemies (try not to make the beatings sound to graphic)
You can also you your powerful magick spells you can use these spells only:
Fireball:throuw a fireball
Bolt:Tackle someone while your surging with electrical powa
Aqua Beam: shoot a powerful ray of water from your hands
Growth: makes plants grow to full height in 5 seconds

That's all, so is this alright with j00 S_S and Gryph?

You may give it a shot, Shadow, but you're already in charge of one large roleplay at the moment- be sure you have enough time to manage both before taking on a second roleplay.

I know I'm going to wait for a while maybe after BoL is done then I'll post it. It might be posted sometime next month... but in the meantime no1 steal my idea!

Post subject: 

i would like to try this, it is a game i have been trying to make *trying* to make for the past couple of years and i need 4 people who would like to test it

the main idea is that 4 friends/comrades/allies start out after 1 charachters father is kidnapped and taken to the underworld. chars. explore 4 areas of their world trying to (eventually) defeat 4 demon gods guarding the gates to the underworld (to do so they must fight creatures and solve puzzles) this is kinda like a mix between zelda and d&d (you fight, your char gains experience eventually becomes stronger and is able to use new weapons/spells and gets better stats

name: unsure of at the moment
Genre: action/puzzle/adventure

setting: mideval times (not sure of spelling)

plot: see above (there is more but it ruins the ending if you find out now)

aditional rule
players are either magician, assasin, swordsman, or archer (kinda basic but still fun and only one person can be each)
you can kill npcs but nothing graphic (i will post a message saying XXX has been killed you find ___ {if anything})
i will ask for a little leniancy on the "godmoding" I will be acting as more of a "ok as you walk to the well you are attacked by a little pink blob that says 'bloop' " than an actual char.

thankyou for even reading this

Since Anade didn't create her topic, I'll start my own.

Roleplay Name: Magic Adventures.

Roleplay Genre: Adventure & Violent. (Not recomended for young members)

Setting: In a faraway land, where people fight to gain control over the world.

Plot: Each character, has the ability to become a psychic person of their designed speciality(earth, fire, water, wind). Each character can have one of these or a MIX of two. These are the type specialities:

Only Earth - Gaia Soldier
Only Fire - Magma Soldier
Only Wind - Eolic Soldier
Only Water - Aqua Soldier

Mixes only have two ranks:

Earth & Fire - Raider
Earth & Wind - Seer
Earth & Water - Prophita
Fire & Water - Ronte
Fire & Wind - Twisfer
Water & Wind - Flakeer

The plot is to stop the evil ones that want to take control of the place.
Here are the evil ranks: (you may also become one of the evil ones)

Earth evil - Paltar
Fire evil - Corcetu
Water evil - Philla
Wind evil - Calco


1.- You can have up to 2 characters (both in the same post!)
2.- You may name your psychic energy of the type.
3.- You may have to 2 psychic energies.

(I will be an Eolic Soldier and Philla so there is only one left)

(if anyone knows the anime saint seiya, it will be similar to the anime, with stars and galaxies and stuff, not just magic)

Mew/Articuno: It sounds like a fun idea, but if it's primarily based on stats, it really belongs in the Activities and Competitions section- Pimm has a similar sort of stat-based game for pokemon going on there. Unless it's mostly writing, with the stats used only as general guidelines, A&C is the place for it.

Flygon: Sounds good, and we really need a med/fan roleplay. Try to keep it from becoming too rank oriented- if people are trying to "win" a rank for their character, they're liable to godmode.

Author:  black_flygon [ Fri Jun 24, 2005 4:04 pm ]
Post subject: 

OK!!!! edited out Gryph so there are no ranks, but just the soldiers that battle!!!

Author:  Gryphflame [ Fri Jun 24, 2005 4:24 pm ]
Post subject: 

Ranks in and of themselves aren't necessarily a bad thing, just so long as they're treated as character options and not status symbols ;)

That wasn't an okay, that was a "please tell me why this is an RP, not an activity." From what you posted, it sounds like it will be mostly stats, not a freestyle writing game like those found here. I've got nothing against that, but it sounds like you're going to need a fair amount of godmoding to handle battles, and character development would be put second to achieving the goal, which could cause 'Sues and such. It sounds as if it would be better suited to the A&C, where I'm sure lots of people would love to play it :)

Author:  mew/articuno lover [ Fri Jun 24, 2005 9:29 pm ]
Post subject: 

sorry about that, i misunderstood, :oops: it would be more of an rpg type thing mainly because all stats and levels affect are what is done in battle, nothing else, and large parts of it wouldnt require fighting, only working together to solve puzzles.

yet again, sorry i didnt mean to put words in your mouth

Author:  Gryphflame [ Fri Jun 24, 2005 9:35 pm ]
Post subject: 

I'll unlock it for now, but I'll keep an eye on it to ensure that the stat aspect doesn't encourage people to godmode or create Mary Sues. Please be careful with it.

And to everyone, being asked to consider taking your idea to A&C isn't an insult- both forums are enjoyable to many, and it just depends on which forum your idea is best suited to.
