I can handle making a new thread, but posting first..?
Oh goodness, that's like asking me to cook something.
I actually really like the desperation idea!
Anyways...I guess I'll push the role of doing things to somebody else.

I can start the thread, if we're decided on the plot! In a way I like documenting things... kind of strange. So I'm guessing this thread will be scrapped then, or we'll be using it as our OOC thread? Oh, we should also think of a name...

I guess this can be the OOC thread...
I was waiting on Acornia, but I can't think of a good name. Maybe just 'The Untitled Roleplay'?

Ok, scratch that. Terrible idea.

Sorry. I cant think of any names that are really good. I can think of some corny names like

Forgotten god
Orendale(can be name of the town)
Trails of a deity
Lost sanity
Shows of power
Way finders god

I cant think of anymore off of the top of my head.

Hm... maybe "The Lost Ones"? Because lost to time and all of that... Though I like Orendale for the name, so we can keep it! I'll go start up the thread as soon as I can so we can start whenever.

Try not to leave any blank as it gives stuff for other people to work with.


What do you guys want as rules. I have a few that i would like to see for us or anyone that may join in the future.

1.) No god modeling please.
2.) Stick to what your character has. Unless it has the ability to pull random stuff out of thin air then there is no reason to be able to do it.
3.) No one liners. A couple of sentences would be nice and purple flowering is loved.


I cant think of anything else. These are somethings that ive come across in other rps that make me loose interest.

Name: Orion fillvidale

Gender: male

Age: 24

Species: air nymph

Powers: has control over air. Thats about it.

Looks: orion is fairly average standing at about 5'9" he has creme colored skin amd long white hair that has a green and blue shine to it. His face is relatively heart shaped with large expressive lavender eyes. He is lean and slender. He has one ear pierced up the side with the other ear having 3 piercings.

Personality: orion is a sweet and loving person. Many describe him as bubbly. He always see the good in others first but hes not stupid.( He wont follow some guy down a dark ally for no reason) how ever he does have a darker crazier side that usually appears when someone he has grow super emotionally attached to. But thats rare as he doesnt form attachments easily, most of what everyone sees is a sugar coat on the outside.


Other: orion likes sweet and spicy things and you will get more from him bringing candy and flowers than weapons and plans. He doesnt like the feeling of being pushed into anything.

Oh, you have a sheet idea! I had already put together something, but it's very simple since I wanted to try leaving the History and Personality fields out. I noticed that roleplayers don't tend to use them except to have a better idea of the appearance, and it's fun to improvise along the way. If you feel like it's necessary though I can put them back into the sheet. Here's what I have so far:
QUOTE
Character Name:
   Species:
   Appearance:
   Skills: (anything from cooking to practicing magic counts)
   Abilities: (any natural features that should be noted; i.e. werewolves transform in moonlight)
   Other:


I'm glad you spoke up though, I almost forgot about the rules. o: Hm... Powers and Abilities would refer to the same things, and I tend to leave out crush/mate/kids because that helps to flesh out the history, and any other relationships can be roleplayed along the way. Since there are only three of us I don't see much purpose in having the Username field, especially since I'm going to organize our sheets anyway. Adding the other fields, the sheet would look like this:
QUOTE
Character Name:
   Species:
   Gender:
   Age:
   Appearance:
   Skills:
   Abilities: (Powers)
   Other:


With Personality and History it would look like this:
QUOTE
Character Name:
   Species:
   Gender:
   Age:
   Appearance:
   Personality:
   History:
   Abilities: (Powers)
   Other:


I removed the Skills field since it was meant to serve the initial purpose of History, which was making sure people didn't give their characters arbitrary skills out of the blue, so with the History field it's not necessary. Are either of the satisfactory?

EDIT: Whoa, that sheet came out of nowhere! xd.png I'll let Anchiale decide if Orion is okay or not; I'm just OP management. You don't have to change his sheet though if we decide on another format.

History could be left out and found out later by the interaction between the characters. As for personality. I generally think its important as it gives a reason as to why a character is acting a certain way. If there generally mad all the time then its nothing new when they snap at you but if they are generally happy and they snap you would know somethings up. Given thats also something that is learned in time but I gemerally find it easier to play a character when I have the personalty reference.

We could leave it up to the individual. Like have the basic stuff and I'll go with the first one, and then if the individual play wants somethong extra that may help them or other they can add it. But everyone should have the core set of stuff. If that makes sence.

Who's going to be driving the story though.

True, and not a bad idea. I'll keep it at the basics then, and just say that fields can be added but not removed or changed.
Hm, I figured Anchiale would drive the story and we would just improvise on the details (I'm giving her OP permissions anyway, so I really am just post management despite looking like the OP). She could always make one of us do it though. xd.png Then again, the initial idea was yours, so it makes sense for you to drive the plot.

As far as driving the story, I honestly think it makes more sense for Acornia to do it, as they made the plot and thus have the best idea for it. As far as personality, mind that I almost never stick by what I put down on there, for some unprecedented reason. I'm going to be on-and-off constantly from now on, so I'll probably make my character tomorrow.

Honestly, when I do a 1x1 like this I tend to let other people take over (and while it was because some have that sort of personality, not all), since I count ten tabs that I have to get done with in a hour, and I can't really stop to think for a long time...

All right then! I went ahead and posted the thread; feel free to let me know if something should be changed. I'll add in Acornia's sheet for Orion in a second.

I guess when you guys get your sheets up we can start. is there a character limit. and how do you guys feel about a little romance in the rp. because usually one of my characters makes a romantic attachment with someone.

No character limits; I never found them useful, and I don't think we'll end up with tons of characters anyway. tongue.gif I'm fine with subtle and/or humorous romantic attachments, but for the most part I stay away from them. I'm more of a combat person.

When all three of us have at least one character to use, I presume. My writing creativity has been diverted to actual writing, so I'm developing my character a lot slower than I anticipated; I don't know where Anchiale has disappeared to though... she mentioned she didn't have much time on Mondays and Thursdays to come on the forums.
