Bending Nation

  1. P&C is a stylized fantasy animal roleplaying game. P&C has a 3/2/2 rpg rating, no word count, and a laid-back & inclusive atmosphere.
  2. Across the Stars is an intermediate-level AU Star Wars roleplay set in 3 BBY • 16 years since Order 66 and a few years before the film A New Hope. The Jedi Order is all but extinct, the once benevolent Republic gone, as the shroud of the Dark Side has fallen across the Galaxy.
  3. What character types are you tired of seeing? What would you like to see more of? Personally, I have yet to see a character from Mexico. A handful from Spain, no Mexicans. Which is a weird thing to notice, but I had too much time to think. I'm also terribly tired of the Girl who had wonderful childhood, has a single bad thing happen and then her parents shun her/she can't handle it and freaks out characters.
  4. Established in 2018, Absinthe is the largest and most established Historical Victorian London site. Our group is closely knit and incredibly welcoming to newcomers. We are an 18+ community with mature themes, canon characters, and lots of want ads. Come explore the darkness and the macabre history of a bygone era with us on Absinthe!

    Jamais Vu

    Jamais Vu is a present day American based Harry Potter Roleplay which allows for both students (years 5-7 & university) and adults of any age. We are a new, laid-back site with no caps on character creation. We offer RP opportunities to roleplay at Ilvermorny, Le Fay University (original), and around the American Wizarding World in general!
  6. SOMETHING IS COMING. SOMETHING HUNGRY FOR BLOOD. A SHADOW GROWS ON THE WALL BEHIND YOU, SWALLOWING YOU INTO DARKNESS. — An AU Stranger Things, member driven play by post RPG. With crossovers into The Lost Boys, and any other fitting 80's based classics you think you can spin in this setting. We have an AU, semi-fluid timeline, beginning post season four.

    Charming

    Charming mixes the fantastic universe of Harry Potter with the culture of Victorian England.
  8. So I love skinning and making things pretty and everything. I mean DF is my tweak time fun. I'm actually working on possibly starting a custom web design company based on the influx of customer's I just got. That being said I was wondering, within the roleplay world, what are your least favorite trends? What is it that makes you cringe every time you see it used. I think mine are huge waste of space banners. I understand that they are there to be flashy and (sometimes) have the information that used to go in a sidebar but really!? Do you have to have a banner that nearly spans 1200px in height to cover my desktop screen? Favorite ones from here:

    Amaryllis

    Amaryllis is a semi-realistic lion rpg, situated in an African-inspired landscape and overlooked by the land’s creator, Maua. We are 18+ with a 100+ word count min. We are a thriving community with over 80 active members and over 200 ic accounts. Come join us!
  10. A laid-back, coastal, no WC, RL RP. Lotus Cay - where life moves a little bit slower, so we can all enjoy the view.
  11. NATURE OF LIONS is a AU historical rp set in the mid-Elizabethan era. Step foot into a sixteenth-century version of England, Ireland, and Scotland as NoL explores the fraught relationship between these three countries. Although grounded in history, we have plenty of opportunities for both familiar names and OC characters alike to have large impacts on the world.
  12. I looked a few pages back but I don't see one of these. So what are your characters doing right now?
  13. Hey all! I'm looking for some fresh contest ideas for our board. These can be anything from posting contests, to raffles, to IC-events (entwined with contest themes), etc. I find it hard to find innovative contests because Google's often a dead-end and surfing around forums isn't always helpful, so I'll ask here and hopefully get some willing contributors lol. Have you hosted a contest before that has gone well that you'd be willing to share? Honestly, at this point, all ideas are welcome, even concepts! Thank you all ~
  14. I bought rpgs tabletop books called Cha’alt, which I can best summarize as a mix of Zardoz and Dune (at least before I can sit down and read it). If you’re familiar with other tabletop games, think Dark Sun, with a decent chance the Kool-Aid man will break out of a random wall that you’ll have to fight. It contains a massive black pyramid dungeon as it’s main centerpiece. Here’s part of a review: “If anything, the “Hail Gonzo!” room perhaps best exemplifies the dungeon: There, a statue of the great Gonzo can be found; lingering here has a half-demon show up, and whisper essentially a quest-hook to the PCs. Fumbling around with the Gonzo statue will open a secret compartment in the crotch, which contains a damaged trumpet. Blowing this one manifests Buddhist monks, who proceed to set themselves on fire, in a macabre way of lighting the room.” – Thilo G. https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product_reviews_info.php?&reviews_id=386813&products_id=284600 Cha’alt is categorized as gonzo. This means everything and the kitchen sink. It tends to have humor, be surreal at times, have tonal shifts, etc. For movies think Killer Clowns From Outer Space, Phantasm, Monty Python and the Holly Grail, Time Bandits, or Suspiria (the original). This brought me back to the world of forum rp. We don’t have a lot of gonzo. When I look at various directories I see the same genre subjects done in the same way. Harry Potter, Supernatural, High Fantasy, Sci-Fi, are all ripe places to go crazy, but there’s a resistance to do so. I’m not entirely sure why. The biggest estimated guess I can give is the fear of loss of control by the creator(s) or the sad fact that most people just aren’t that creative. I’m told I’m creative, but it can take me months or even years to come up with a decent concept or idea. Once I get going, it’s better and more like a matter of weeks, but getting back into the habit takes me some time. When I’ve looked at sites on directories, I often find myself feeling restricted. Most of my character concepts can’t work even with tweaking. I have characters that are humanoid plants, are the personification of nothing, etc. They don’t encourage true creativity. One such idea I want to return with is to bring back Agostina somewhere and have her meat tenderizer weapon have the soul of a vapid stereotypical valley girl named Tiffany stuck inside of it. Maybe make it teleport and so Tiffany can be separate from Agostina. I’ve had some ideas knocking around for a few site concepts. I may write more about how or why I came to the results in future blog posts. I want to encourage creativity in potential future members as well as myself. I’ll write more about how I hope to do that and also have an open discussion with all of you so we can bounce off ideas. Until then, don’t be afraid to go gonzo! Cha’alt kickstarter:
  15. On the reverse of this topic: What are your favorite skin trends? What makes you happy to go to a site every day? What makes you feel good about staring at something? I think I'd have to say... I still love sidebars. aka I can't think of anything.
  16. Hi there! I am 19 and I’ve been roleplaying for a few years! I love roleplaying fantasy, medieval fantasy, angst, and romance based stories! I don’t like fandom stuff or slice of life and I prefer using original characters in fantasy lands filled with action and adventure!! There’s a lot more to it than that and I have a lot of specifics in mind however I don’t know if I should put that all here? Oh well, greetings and it’s nice to meet you all!!
  17. 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?
  18. I.... struggle so hard with writing good open threads that people find it easy to hop into and roleplay with me. I feel like I never know when to end them at a comfortable place or I always provide too much detail in the opening (and it gets looong). I admire people who can write a short, particularly simple opening thread and leave so much potential. I don't know how to do this. I really need some guidance. Anyone have some sound advice for me (and anyone else that's struggling)?
  19. 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!
  20. So when you're posting, which is your preference: linear or liquid? Why? I personally have a very difficult time arranging things in my mind when I have a character in more than one thread at a time. (Which is happening right now and it's giving me so much anxiety, I hate it!) This is one reason I tend to have a number of characters: so that I'm able to play a bunch of threads at once but one at a time per character. Obviously, I will play a character in more than one thread if asked but my personal preference is NOT to. How about you guys?
  21. Ok so I'm just curious as to whether I'm the only freak here that's had a dream about a character or not. In my case last night, I had a dream about someone else's character. I used to role play with this girl a while ago and she had this character who was severely anti-social. I had a dream about him, his name was Punk. Wasn't sure whether I should run from him or not. Anyone know the character from Lee Child novels (or the movie) Jack Reacher? Kind of like him but with more of an inkling to murder people except like, just a very select couple people.
  22. I DO care about my site. I love it, and I am glad that our interactive swashbuckling story is already eight years old, and counting, and that I can also count on a few people since six- eight years ago. This is an important achievement. BUT I DON'T CARE ANYMORE if some people think it's not active enough (it is, just way slower than it used to be). I don't care if those newer members decide suddenly a long time investment isn't worth and they leave. I had to accept the idea that these are who we are, this is our current rhythm and that we won't get new staying members unless our members bring their friends, to stay for writing with them. (Which they don't, because most of our members don't have friends interested in our setting, or writing - at all or in English). And when I see on the resource sites all ask for "active sites, not dying ones"... and that slow = dying for most people, I get angry. We aren't dying, even if our story is progressing way slower than a few years ago. Just that we have other commitments or health problems which don't allow us be as prompt as we used to be. Our main quality is of being reliable. We finish most threads we start (no matter when, but we do). Our story is coherent and consistent, and progressing. I let it lower with the advertising, knowing that I have to resign with the few members we have and with some of them quitting due to lack of interest, to the site being slower and slower and being able to do nothing to change it. All the advice on the resource sites are things I have tried in vain, one or another time. This is who we are, and I don't care if someone thinks it's a dead site, when we know we aren't. Just posting once at 2-3 weeks on average. We are welcoming. There is always a possibility to interact with a character or another, given that we are writing in liquid time. As for events... it's normal that some plots are for certain factions (nobility only, commoners only, seafarers only). On most sites it is the same. We are also flexible and willing to integrate anyone. The problem is that most people want replies at least every week, if not sooner, and only 2-3 people might be able to post as quickly. We aren't playing pretend with our characters, and this is also one reason to find less new members interested. Historical fiction is a niche, and there aren't many people who like doing research. In my opinion, the coherence of the plot is a bonus, it is something good, but others might not like that they have to... pay attention (even if it is required for any writer! ). Also I am shocked how little creative are most people. When I ask them, upon joining, "What stories do you feel more inspired to write? What stories have you created this character for?" the reply is usually a variant of "I don't know, anything". (which means "you think it for me, and I am just riding along... or not even). I used to believe that I, as administrator, have to be an example, to promote the activity I want to see. Now I don't care anymore about it. There had been too many years when I did it, without any result. I mean, I can control only my activity, and "activity begets activity" is not always true. People will post when they have time. And no matter how many replies are piling up into the OWED section, they would reply only when they are available. I learnt it the hard way. Lately I am in the same situation, having lowered my activity significantly, just because I can't do it as I used to, anymore. I am not flaky, and I still am going to finish everything I started, but it will take more time. I just have difficulty writing lately. Having half a day taken out and returning home unusually tired and mentally exhausted doesn't help. Having to spend some of the other part of the day cooking, shopping for our household or attending literary events adds to the lack of time for writing. And I have to split my writing between novels (and short fiction too, especially for certain contests) and the two RPG sites I am on. So... I do what I can. There are days when I can't write at all, and days when I can do only one writing thing (usually correcting/ editing what was already written). I don't care anymore if I don't meet self-imposed deadlines, because I simply can't. Sometimes I think (I might be wrong or I might be right) that if I was somewhere in the countryside, so that I could write outside, and have no other daily worry, I would succeed to do it. But as I can't go anywhere, that's only an excuse . Or a dream.

    Old and young

    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!
  24. Years ago, I was in the RP and fanfic writing communities for Rammstein and a similar band, Oomph! For some reason, there was a TON of fandom crossover with Oomph! and, of all things, Boondock Saints (I still have no idea why). I also really enjoyed LOTR Speakeasy, which was Lord of the Rings actors (and people with six degrees of separation to them) in the 1920s. What's your weirdest fandom/RP niche?
  25. Some people write only for their writing partner, or for themselves. I like reaching the widest audience possible (with that "widest" being not so wide, most often, but hopefully it doesn't mean that my writing sucks). I think all kind of stories are meant to be shared (in a way or another, orally or in writing). I always write with an audience in mind - which doesn't mean, however, that I write "things which sell" if they don't interest me. I like RPGs because I like interacting with my readers (and writing partners), talking about characters, plots, motives, etc. I wish the readers of my novels would interact with me on my FB page too (where it is easier) or on my blog. What about you?
