((Someone needs to PM an approver, It lookos like this RP is getting a lot of qrit when it is actually getting none. Also, Swoop, I believe that 11 is no allowed, they can't' just lie like that, the capital keeps track. Take Katniss as an example, i bet she would have if she could done that to. Thats just my opinion though, feel free to ignore. Also, there IS an edit button for each post...))

Hello, DG, I'm gistofeverything, and blah blah blah blah. OK.

QUOTE
You watch from your place up the front of the town central.

"up the" -> "up at the".

QUOTE
You can feel the tension in the air as everyone waits with thoughts- will I get chosen? Who will be sent to the hell they call the arena?

Colon instead of a dash after "thoughts".
Capitalize the first "will".
Add another question to your list, such as: "Will I ever see the chosen again?".

QUOTE
It can't be you out of those millions of slits with names on them.

I think you mean "slips"?
Is this a thought from the previous list? "Will... arena?"

QUOTE
Everyone has that "the ship is sinking" look, or "here comes the lion!".

Not everyone will get the meaning of the emotions expressed here - just state a general emotion: pain, fear, jealousy, etc...

QUOTE
You gulp down your own saliva as if something would just come and throw the Hunger Games and the reaping onto another world.

Not everyone will know what the "reaping" is (even though I do). Please clarify what this is.

QUOTE
A tall blonde woman steps to the podium, her name is Kate Windhetcher, you know from the previous times you've been here, to watch or to hope your name won't be pulled out.

Proper noun before the appositive. "Kate Windhetcher, a tall blonde woman, a person you've come to know from your previous visits here..."
Instead of "or", use "and".

QUOTE
Millions of people from your district are here, if not they are punished.

Semicolon instead of a comma after "here"
Comma after "not".

Post when you are ready for me to go on.

Username: Skypool (Sky)
Character Name: Ryder Emerson
Gender (look at the district section for info if it's taken first): Male
Age (12-17): 16
Skills (Archery, hand to hand, making traps, ect.): Ryder, being from 4, is skilled at knots, complex and simple. The only knots that have ever evaded him are those that are only taught to officials of D4. He is also fairly skilled at wielding a trident. His weakness in that though is that he is only OKAY at throwing one at a long distance. Ryder also excels at hand-to-hand combat and fishing.
Weaknesses (At least two): Ryder isn't one to kill people. Yes, he has speared dummies all his life being trained for the possibility of being Reaped, but he has never speared a REAL person. He doesn't want to partake in the Capitol's cruel way of reminding people of what was... His logic could cost him his life in the games though. Ryder also experiences short bouts of PTSD, a diagnosis unknown to him and others. At random times, fear can grasp him and he can go absolutely wild. This trama was brought on by abuse by his father when he was younger.
Personality (A good description): Ryder keeps a hard facade, in order to not appear weak. But inside, he feels like he is fighting a battle he doesn't want to partake in. When girls throw themselves at him, he rarely shows any interest. His only affection goes out to an elderly woman who practically raised him. But despite what he seems to other people, he really is compassionate.

This makes him weak to some. Some people play on this weakness to take advantage of him. But eventually, Ryder realizes this and draws back into his shell. Once the momentary affectionate Ryder fades, he is mostly consumed by resentful feelings for his father. This is the source for how he keeps his hard facade in the public.

When Ryder first watched the Hunger Games, he felt an unexpected feeling rising in him. Hatred. He felt the need to shred throats everytime someone was killed. Especially if it was one of District 4's own. When his father first confronted him about training like the Careers, he refused and stormed away. Sometimes he wondered if he would one day be in one of those despicable arenas. He resolved that if he ever did, that he would not be a pawn in their games. He'd go by his own terms..
Looks (A descriptive paragraph or a picture): Ryder is considered to be at a moderately average height. He has an athletic build from rowing oars most of his life. His tan complexion and ocean blue eyes captivate young women all over District Four. His unusual black hair has an untidy, boyish quality to it. If he ever takes his shirt off (which he rarely does), a long, jagged mark can be seen down his back. It was given to him by his father who had once taken a point of a trident to him once in a drunken rage. Ryder can usually be seen wearing a sleeveless shirt with shorts on. He also wears an anklet, which from it, hangs a silver trident charm.
District: 4
Other: I love the Games!^^

I've read all three books and I've reread them several times and saw the movie. So if you need someone to check info with and a mod who's read it isn't on, then I will help.

Near is the Cornucopia, which is filled with items, from swords to plastic, food to bags.

You can do whatever you want, but I'd suggest that you post everything that is in the Cornucopia right before the people are let out into the arena, except for the things inside backpacks and stuff. It would also be good to post a detailed description of the arena, and maybe a map, at the same time you post what's in the Cornucopia, just so people don't get confused.

Hi peeps. =) Please take a look at the Rules of the RP/Unapproved-Roleplay section:
QUOTE (Khallayne)

Keep all character reservations to PMs while the roleplay is in the unapproved section. Comments such as “this looks amazing” doesn’t help improve the roleplay and only adds to the chatter.


I don't want anyone to get in trouble. :3 Even though in DragonGirl10188's rules it says to post character sheets here, the character sheets should NOT be posted until this roleplay is Approved. The best thing to do would have been to wait to post the character sheets and/or PM for reservations, because the above rule does take precedence over RP rules while the RP is in the unapproved section. Just a little reminder. wink.gif

Thank you to those who have been on-topic and helping improve the roleplay.

And here's my critique:

QUOTE
A tall blonde woman steps to the podium, her name is Kate Windhetcher, you know from the previous times you've been here, to watch or to hope your name won't be pulled out.

Change the comma after "podium" to a period or a semi-colon. Also add a period after "Windhetcher" since you are starting a new idea there.

QUOTE
Millions of people from your district are here, if not they are punished.

Change the comma to a semi-colon.

QUOTE
You watch them slowly step up to the podium, and are congratulated by Kate.

Add "they" before "are congratulated".

QUOTE
They stand, eyeing for someone to volunteer- no one comes fourth.

Spelling: "eyeing" should be "eying".

QUOTE
When a name gets chosen, you must enter the Hunger Games.

Change "a name" to "your name" because you don't enter if just any name is called.

QUOTE
A sick thing where they record you on TV while you are put into a very vast arena (from a desert to a rainforest), trying to be the last one left out of 24 contestants.

Start the sentence with a subject; what's a sick thing? Start it with "The Hunger Games is" or something similar.

QUOTE
They say a score on a scale from 1-12. 1 being the worst and 12 being extroadinary. People will sponsor and bet on you the higher your score.

Spelling: "extroadinary" should be "extraordinary".
Also for the second sentence; try rewording it to something like, "the higher you score, the more people who will sponsor and bet on you."
QUOTE

Finally, the arena. A random area is chosen, from a forest to frozen land. You are plotted against each other, you are allowed to kill anyone or thing.

Specify what "You" is here; the contestants, right? So instead of putting "You are plotted against each other," put "The contestants are plotted against each other" or something similar.

QUOTE
At the start of the arena, you can't get out of a tube like thing surrounded by mines. They deactivate once the gamekeepers explain.

They deactivate once the gamekeepers explain what?

QUOTE
Then you flee, your sponsors can buy items or give you things dropped down by parachutes in silver wrapping, they can give you anything.

Change the comma after "flee" to a period. Change the comma after "wrapping" to a semi-colon.

QUOTE
You are kept there until there is only one left, they get the rewards and their life.

Only one what is left? Again, be a tad more specific.~

But I have to say, you do a wonderful job explaining things for people who might have only read one book in the series. I do have a question: are all of the roleplayers going to have to go through the large process that happens before they enter the arena? If so, make sure you're careful that it doesn't drag out too long. wink.gif

QUOTE
I say if a sponsor sends you an item, when you are attacked and pretty much dead I can say you are.

Change the comma after "item" to a period or a semi-colon.

QUOTE
☯ I highly reccomend having read at least the first book before joining. If you lack the knowledge, I'll say no.

Spelling: change "reccomend" to "recommend".

Very nice work. :3 Post again when you're done with this.
