  1. Hey hey folks~ I'm in the mood to join an RP that's set outside of the Valucre canon. I don't have any concrete ideas that I'm set on, but a few broader settings that come to mind include: - cyberpunk - Cthulhu mythos/eldritch horror, either in the classic 1930s era or in a noir-style 1950s - Fallout post-nuclear apocalyptic (preferably East coast) - The Witcher-esque, not canon characters - other monster horror or outer space/sci-fi tropes maybe? -a re-imagining of Greek mythos in a more flavorful universe, maybe. Kinda like in the games Hades or God of War? I would be interested in incorporating dice into options 1 and 2, but that's not essential. XD And since I feel like I'm just grasping for ideas, I'm also open to hear any settings anyone else has an itch for! Now, I do have a lot going on right now and would only be able to post about once a week if we're talking super literate. More often if brevity is embraced. Amenable to romance if it's well-paced and earned, but mostly just looking for an adventure or thriller with big-bad intrigue. Please don't be offended if I don't agree to the first opportunity that presents itself. It's possibly going to be a challenging transition for me coming back to RP, so I'm looking for the one that really revs my engine, and is easy enough to follow along in terms of readability while still being engaging enough to keep me motivated.
  2. Reposting this due to my original having been posted with little details, causing lack of interest moreso than normal. Someone told me that I should lock the original thread and repost. Sorry if that method is frowned upon here, however now that I've ironed out many of the details in addition, i'd like those who initially read my poorly put together thoughts may reignite interest for such a thing. The following is copied from the edited version of the original thread, with some formatting flair added. I've also added tags and a prefix to properly convey my intent. I'm not sure what post time limit I should look for for this kind of rp, because I'm not even sure if there will be any interest " I've been thinking for quite a while of trying to find a way to have a legal drama role play. Set in alternate history real life in the late 1980s. I'm not sure how to proceed with such, yet, but I'd like to check for interest before I set about writing anything out or making a character to do so. Addition: Basically how I'd like to run this to is as either a small group acting as investigators and witnesses in the trial, with one person as narrator for what evidence is found by them, witness Npcs and the opposing counsel, and other parts of the court and world. This role play would require a bit of time investment toward research of laws on the part of the narrator, and in character research to that effect. The case would consist of the death of a well known, but minor politician within the city. The investigators would need to use the evidence to convince the jury of the innocence or guilt of the suspect based on that evidence. The trial and investigation shall have the following steps. 1.) Death of victim 2.) Prefile Investigation determinating cause of death, and method (whether it was murder or not). This will include interviewing witnesses. 3.) Filing suit: If the players find enough evidence to rationalize it as a crime, then the players or npcs can decide to charge someone with the crime. 4.) Arraignment: this is where (in this rp) the suspect will be arraigned and asked to submit a plea based on the narrator. This plea may have complications as an innocent can plea guilty or vice versa for a number of reasons, or insanity, or in some cases crime of passion. If a player is acting as defense counsel, they will have interviewed their client and know whether they are actually innocent or guilty and will be charged with acquitting their client regardless of actual guilt. This step is actually is a combination of multiple steps in real life for entertainment and creativity's sake. In character the players will be given time before the next court date. And at this arraignment the judge will decide whether the suspect will be held in jail or released on bail or bond. 5.)Pretrial Investigation and Discovery: this step is further investigation between the arraignment and trial. Due to discovery the defense and prosecution may investigate different avenues of evidence, but must share all evidence. Any evidence not given in discovery is inadmissible (unusable) in court. This step may be repeated at any time at request of the counsel and approved by the judge. 6.)Evidence submission hearing: this will be a court hearing in which evidence is provided to 7.)Jury selection: this step is where defense and prosecution attempt to choose a jury that is most likely to be "fair" often times political and racial prejudices based on statistics, as well as case details will push this narrative step forward. Both sides will use those details to strike potential jurors from selection for either side or cause recommendation for certain jurors. Some jurors will be stricken and recommended by both sides for different reasons. This will occur before trial and during the Investigation and discovery. 8.)Trial: this step may take multiple hearings, but this is where both counsels use the same evidence at hand to prove or disprove guilt. The counsels will each get opening statements which is telling the jury judge and audience what they believe the evidence will show, making their position known. 9.)Jury deliberation: this step will only be included if a player or players are jurors. The jurors will talk about the evidence and use such to decide how they wish to vote. The jury must be unanimous in deliberation before announcement of guilt. If unanimously found guilty, they will also argue their opinion of sentencing. 10.)Announcement of finding: this is when the Jury lead announces their vote. If not unanimous, then they can explain why and request more investigation and discourse. If found guilty they also announce their recommendations for sentencing. 11.)Sentencing hearing: if found guilty then the counsel can debate sentencing. The defence obviously trying to reduce sentencing at minimum away from the death penalty. 12.)Sentencing: this happens at the end of sentencing hearing. The judge uses the arguments of the opposing counsels and the jury recommendation to decide sentencing. 13.)Appeals: if players wish, then the case can be taken to appeal court. Contrary to popular belief, appeals court cannot overturn a case based on new evidence. Only based on the mistreatment of facts and evidence by those involved. Appeals can appeal the finding of guilt or innocence, or the sentencing. 14.)Countersuit: if the defendant of the case is found innocent, then due to any jail time due to not being released on bail or bond during the trial, the cost of time and money from their defense, the loss of income or employment due to their arrest, or the emotional, social, or physical distress, or defamatory media caused by the suit, the defendant may pursue a countersuit for this damages. Or lawsuits against other entities which caused such due to their trial. These cases will be separate from the murder trial and mostly will take place in a civil suit, taking the same pattern as the original trial. The positions players may take with their character are as follows, all others unlisted will be played by the narrator; Defendant, Prosecution counsel, Defense counsel, Jurors, Investigators. I said before that I would like an alternate reality modern campaign originally, however a modern fantasy campaign would also work. So long as a modern-like court system exists. This would allow players to bring existing characters as jurors, defendant, or investigators. "
  3. Discuss! Feel free to spread the word, be excited, and ask questions. Official responses to any questions will be made in the upcoming FAQ thread.
  4. I’m craving for some storywriting that has nothing to do with canon (or too trivial to be canon), starts with a lighthearted adventure, has no posting order, and no particular plot planned or anyone driving the story. No restrictions on character, or who introduces NPCs or challenges. Just a simple one step, one post at a time in a continue-the-story writing, and see where it goes. I’m not looking for chat RP though, so at least a paragraph or two, or longer. Really depends on what you want to write in your post! No particular posting speed, but I’m not a super fast writer, depending on how long the posts are, I can take anywhere from 2 days to a week to reply. But anyone can post anytime though, so you don’t have to wait for me! No rules meaning nothing is disallowed. You can have a monster that shows up and blows up the planet, and I can have a god that resurrects everyone, if you and I so wanted during our turns. Not that it’s what I’m going for, but just saying that it can happen. There’s no storyteller, no one to moderate anything written. Lol I know it’s a strange interest check, but anyone wants to join me for this? It’s non-canon for sure, we can use Alternative or any readymade lore areas on Val. Looking for a small group of 2-6 people so that things don’t grow too crazy lol.
  5. Greetings potential buyer! Have you ever desired your own personal catgirl? Angry that Science has yet to deliver on it? Then you need simply read further! Below is a profile link to her page. As well as more information Ooc:__ So I have a dynamic, I'd like to make perfectly clear. I have zero interest in having her set free. Or liberating her. I'm not saying you need to savagely beat her. What I'm requesting is that it remains clear that she is indeed, essentially a slave I welcome any and all questions!
  6. Hello! For two years now I have facilitated a D&D 5th edition campaign in a custom setting over Discord in the (now defunct) official Valucre Discord Channel. We play every other Sunday from 4pm pst to 8pm pst (though sometimes we go a bit later) through the Discord channel. The adventure began when a massive red dragon seemingly came from out of nowhere and leveled the village of Chiwak (the home of all the characters) to the ground, leaving behind nothing but bones and ash. The survivors who were outside the village at the time were beset by Kobolds, and first banded together to put stop that threat from killing the remaining villagers. At that moment, the party decided that their new objective was to become strong enough, and well enough equipped, to take out this dragon menace. Many other things have happened along the way, but that will be on the new players to uncover as they become a part of this party. Currently, the group consists of two Eladrin twins, both of whom love to have a good time at the expense of others (usually through pranks and jokes) and have yet to come across a lock they couldn't get around; the half-elf Paladin who grew up in Chiwak and now tries to find the best way to serve his patron deity when he isn't distracted by the butterflies; a gnomish wizard whose library research skills are unmatched even if he sometimes misses the social cues, and the Sylvan Ranger they adopted into the group whose grunts fill in for most speech. This plucky group has already seen their share of adventure and have many more lying ahead of them. Are you interested in taking up a permanent role? Or would you just like to guest star by dropping in for a session or two and then returning to that life of adventuring your character had before running into this group? If so, click HERE to fill out an application. We are currently accepting just ONE full time member, but anyone interested in a Cameo who seems like a good fit can be brought in for consideration (though Cameo opportunities might be months down the road, depending on the amount of people and the pace of the game). Feel free to ask any questions below. ?
  7. "Hello there. My name is Amber. I can't believe Madon has me doing outreach but here we are. Anyways, as you can probably tell, the Legend of the Emblem has made a surprising comeback thanks to the efforts of @EpicRome23 and @NuclearCommando. So far we've made some progress in the valley, like stopping some bandits, meeting some strange allies, meeting some stoned wizards, and finding out Madon has some common sense after all! Shocker! That said, the amount of common sense he has is still low, so we could use some allies. And that's where you can come in. I'll have my friend here explain the details. Thank you Amber. Anyways, so far we're on our second thread of LOTE, which I have provided links below: Ignore the one star rating, I think Amber did that. "Hey don't pin what you did on me you jerk." We're at a crucial point in our thread, where we're seeking out a couple allies to join us on the journey to gather some dragon stones and legendary weapons, and also go through some wild antics and memes in the process. So if you got a character or two who could join in on the process, then we'd love to have you along. Given this is based off of Fire Emblem, we're memeing it and have a plot going on that hits on those points, and we're doing things like supports and such and what have you. Who all is in this so far? From Epic we have: Madon: The Exarch of Isore, and the "Lord" of our party. "And also a tad brainless." Wymp: The Exarch's retainer, and a countermage. "Also kind of a wimp if you ask me." Owend: A member of the Grey Knights and ally to the party. Stoned Wizards: "Need we say more?" From me we have: Amber: The resident mage/cleric. Also breaks FE logic. "Dang right I do." Mason: A spec-ops man from another world, with weaponry of another time. "Quite mysterious... and also kind of handsome." Eve: A girl with a literal split personality. And quite skilled with the bow. Now you know our cast, perhaps you'd like to join them? We do have two big priorities: You have to be active, as we're trying to keep posts coming as quick as we can, as in less than three days per post. And, you have to be in it for the long haul. We got a lot of things coming up in the future, now I understand if things come up that make you have to leave Val for a long period of time that we can't plan for. But aside from that, we want to keep a consistent party throughout this. Knowledge of Fire Emblem is not required, but recommended so you can understand the memes we mock. Discord is also optional for keeping tabs on each other. "So if you're interested please let us know. If you want to know some lore, ask @EpicRome23, make him do some work for a change instead of having me do it." Or you can ask me of course. But Epic generally does have a greater grasp of the lore than I do. I just come up with plot ideas he works the lore into.
