  1. I looked a few pages back but I don't see one of these. So what are your characters doing right now?
  2. clipsed

    Charming

    Charming mixes the fantastic universe of Harry Potter with the culture of Victorian England.
  3. Looking for something to whet my whistle outside of a site. Play mostly supernatural, but also played sci-fi, various fandoms, etc. Must be comfortable with lax posting schedule
  4. We are a supernatural site set in the fictional town of SCYLLA BAY, ALASKA, where the town sees very little sunlight during the winter months.
  5. An original low medieval fantasy. Rebellions, war, political intrigue, and power struggles... the price of the crown is blood...
  6. Phoenix left Earth 262 years ago. Since that time she has seen a revolt, conspiracies, and martyrs. Will they make it to their new home?
  7. Just a partner for 1x1 rp(s) on discord. Or kik.
  8. A 3-3-3 laidback multigenre roleplay
  9. I have been working in project management, so I am accustomed with project launching meeting (ie official opening) and project wrap-up meeting (ie official closure). How can it be done for a site's official closure? I am looking forward to ideas, knowing that there would be a few more months of preparation until actually implementing them. But until the end of the year, my site will close. Our main story will end. How to close the site festively, to thank our beloved members for keeping up with us, some for as long as 9 years, some for 7 or 5? I have a few ideas. Some of them I want to be a surprise for them. But I am looking for more ideas from you: - there will be a youtube movie celebrating our characters and their story arcs, (we used to do for the previous volumes of the story, but never did for Caribbean Dawn) - I am thinking about opening a future timeskip area, in the next months, allowing for threads showing some characters after a few years, so a sort of epilogue. - a CD with songs inspired from our story, to be sent to all members (we did some for the previous volumes of the story). Anything else you may think of?
  10. AU ASOIAF - Jon Targaryen is King of the Seven Kingdoms
  11. An MultiGenre / MultiFandom Adult 18 Plus place where content is both clean, and adult like. Chat, Rp, and other things.
  12. A fantasy RPG forum with a focus on story and character progression. Friendly staff, active players!
  13. So how much does your favored media influence your choice in face claims/playbys? Like if you watch a lot of anime, is that why you prefer anime face claims? If you're into popular movies, does this influence the faces you decide to use? I believe that what we consume in the media definitely has some kind of bearing on the visual reps we decide to use. I was thinking about this because I do tend to use RL Asian faces because that is the media I'm most acquainted with. But I also consume, say, Stranger Things (I use a few faces from it) and other things, etc. Or do you guys purposely choose people you don't know? How about you artists? Do you prefer drawing your characters? Let's talk about it!
  14. Looking for a dedicated and active partner for a romance plot.
  15. One hears it so often from RPG partners - "If you don't like it, go write a novel (or fanfiction) instead!" But is this really the solution, instead of talking with the writing partners and finding by negotiation and compromise a solution matching everyone's writing needs, halfway? Writing a novel? Been there, done that (in my mother tongue) - several novel-length stories. (The list is somewhere here, in this blog, but given that it doesn't allow me to past links in words anymore, I give up searching for it. Breaking my blog entry with http links splashed as such isn't an aesthetic I prefer.) And yes, I do finish what I start. But writing a novel is a lonely endeavour. Just me and the computer (or notebooks before) and the research sources. Then, it stays somewhere in a corner of the computer and this is it. If in the past some people were curious to read the manuscript, even when it was handwritten on paper because nobody had a PC (and the existing PCs were writing on colourful cards, not on paper at that time) now people don’t read as much in general, I have noticed this. Since I discovered that RPGs do exist, ie one can write a story together with other people, and get it published on the internet for more people to read it and to discuss about it, I have no more interest in writing alone. (I might return to it some day, I don’t dismiss the possibility. But maybe something would change in order for me to return. Maybe at that moment I’d have around me a support group interested in reading and discussing characters, plots, motives, literary techniques). I like more writing with others instead of writing alone, plotting with others instead of doing it alone, making come true both my stories and the others’, negotiating and finding a midway for aspects where the expectations are radically different, so that it keeps being fun and interesting for all of us, discussing what’s behind the story and the research process, gossiping and discarding several alternatives after choosing the one with the most ripples for the plot. Finding online likeminded friends of any ages, places, cultural, social and national background, interested in writing and reading, when there are none around me. So yes, this is the answer why I wouldn’t write a novel alone, but one with others (a RPG, how writing with others is called) but still applying the rules of creative writing to this writing endeavour, planning included (just planning together, no more alone, and writing together, no more alone).
  16. NIGHTMARE ZERO'S POPULARITY ON THE RISE A recent new video game released at the beginning of this year has gamers from all over Nyxis flocking to play. The video game, which is an MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) is set in a fantasy land called Sedna, where players can choose a character from several different classes to explore, fight monsters, interact with other players, and more. The open-ended plot of the game, which involves taking on jobs, fighting monsters against one another, and joining guilds, is said to be a large part of the draw. Read more here!
  17. Some sites discourage really young or old characters. On some sites they are forbidden, on others they don't find plots. Do you like writing such characters? Why yes or why not? I like writing all kind of characters, as the story requires. Young, old, middle-aged, men, women, boys, girls. I succeeded to NPC babies too when needed. I think it adds realism to the story and its environment, because people in real life do interact with others of all ages. So I have written from babies and toddlers to 50-70 years old characters (yes, for me NPCs are characters too, support characters). Given the life expectancy in the times I am writing in, when 50 is old and 70 is rare, I think I really have people of all ages... And each of them is offering something unique to the story!
  18. And Felix was the villain? That was the question that plagued some of us, so now we pose it to you. Actually, that was just one question that plagued us. The other is "Do you wanna make sex magic?" But nevermind... let me just give you the premise. Alternate reality Russia. 1911. Magic fills the land, but there are restrictions against the occult. Ley lines criss-cross Imperial Russia and the rest of the world, providing inter-connectivity not unlike today's wireless world. There are eight classes of mages so far: Newtonian, Thermal, Chemical, Electrical, Electrochemical, Electromagnetic, Sonic, and Propriomancy. The story opens in October 1911 with the assassination of the chief of police (again). Rumors abound, yet the truth is out there. There would be tons of potentials in characters here, too. Academics, workers, rabble rousers, Russian royal family, foreign investors like Americans and English (which would have something to do with things like railroad, shipping, and mineral industries), soldiers, and visiting dignitaries. This site is scheduled for a soft opening soon. Is this something you'd be into? What sort of questions would you have about it? What kind of characters would you want to play in this setting? Help us brainstorm!
  19. So I've been RPing in one shape or another (mostly forum based, but I have done chat and others) for about 12 years now. I've seen a few fads come and go. Things as simple as the overly colorful templates that have every letter a different color (had a friend make me a few of those, she was a doll), to "MUST HAVE TINY TEXT EVERYWHERE!!1!1111!!!! SIZE 0 MASTER RACE!!!!1!!!!1". I had to leave RPing for a while, because college happened, because life happened, and I resently (in the last 6ish months or so) have decided to come back. I've found myself... pickier, personally. I won't join just ANY site anymore, and I'm picky about skins, rules, and those I can RP with. I adore romance, and fandoms, and have a hard time finding anyone who's similar (it seems). I'm noticing that where I'm looking, I'm not finding anyone who's a teen. Or if they are, they are very mature. I remember when Chatboxes were filled with "so, school sucked today, I had a biology test, a pop quiz, and my friend's not-boyfriend tried to hit on me" or "my life is so terrible, my parents aren't letting me do _____!!!!!". Now I see "I'll be back later guys, gotta put the kiddos to bed" or "Sorry I'm so late guys! I had to stay late for work, but I will get a post out I swear!". It's... interesting for me. I was gone probably three to three and a half years, and I come back and now... RP is a completely different landscape. I no longer need AIM, but Discord. My forum RPs are being moved to Premium places as we all want more mature themes. (I remember when fade to black was exciting, and felt a little... naughty 😜.) I, personally, am more picky about who, what, where and when I rp. Even my Why has changed a bit. It's no longer about escaping, it's more about... enjoyment for me. I have things I want to RP out (and yes mostly in fandom, because I doubt I'll ever loose that), that I doubt 18 year old me would have wanted to RP. I know I've changed, and I've noticed that the face of RP has changed as well. Again, mostly I've done forum stuff, but I am wondering, who else has seen these changes, or hasn't realized until now that they've happened. Coming back is... jarring, I guess. I'm faced with what feels like a new game, and I'm a bit behind. Tell me your experiences. Even if you started RPing in the last few months, you can tell me what you are seeing as normal, and I can give you an idea how it looks from someone who hasn't really gotten to RP much in the last few years. Here are a few major fads I remember, some were good, some were not so much. Animal Sites [Horses (where I started), Wolves, Tigers, Cats in general, lions] Overly colorful EVERYTHING. Bad color combinations. Tiny, size 0 text. AIM (figuring out group messaging was hard Highschool (RP wise, and RL wise) Emo Mary Sues (I think that had something to do with that terrible/wonderful HP fic, My Immortal?) Black and White Rping (There is no gray, you are a good guy, or a bad guy) Dark, Light, Neutral. Usually with the animal sites. So Much Time! (I had it all guys, I had it all!) Bonding over dumb things your character said (I think this still exists, or it should. If it doesn't, I'm bringing it back) That is just to name a few. Why don't you tell me what you remember/know of/think of as 'modern rping', and we can compare notes!
  20. What would you do without your RP partners? 'Fess up! You love 'em. Here's a confession of a hermit: I don't like most people. I really don't. But without RP friends, I think I would go totally mad. There's something beautiful in partnering with someone who just clicks and makes amazing stories with you. And I found out recently how rare that is. That click. That rightness. There have been times I've considered just starting all over again because of association with complicated ties, but then I think that friendship should be unconditional as long as it isn't abused. Without RP friends, I'd feel very discouraged and lonely. My closest friends have been very supportive, enthusiastic, and helpful with this new project of mine. They've been there from the conception of the idea to this point. It's been fun so far! It's been hard sometimes since I'm mostly soloing, but they're amazing cheerleaders and researchers. Without RP friends, I'd feel no need to roleplay. Sounds pretty obvious, but there it is. I think some people forget that.
  21. So lately, I've redone a site of mine and got some friends to join, but it's not really picking up. It sucks when people join and then sort of vanish when they say they will stick around, so that threw me off a bit because now the site is so quiet. It's not like I want a bunch of members, but it's always hard to even find a few active ones who can post every once or twice a week. So my question is: what do you guys do and how do you go about handling advertising a site and bringing the right people in? Because I know sometimes it's hard to tell whether or not a person who joins will stick around.
