  1. 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.
  2. Genre: Western Location: Oatpeak, in Alternative Premise: The railroad stop has just been constructed. A load of provisions, medicine, money, and other goods is bound for its first stop into Oatpeak. Your role in this premise is to rob it and sell the goods on the black market for profit. FAQs Is there a GM for this roleplay? Yes. @Die Shize has graciously volunteered to GM the overall plot here. As a GM rather than a regular player don't anticipate that he will have to post every turn and sometimes his post may be simple and information just to help players, but he will also take control of key NPCs throughout the story. What roles are you looking to fill? These are listed in order of preference. If we only get enough people for the 1st, Die will GM the other sets; if we get enough for the first two, he'll only GM the last, etc A few people to play the train robbers Amenities - robber One or two to play on-board Pinkerton private detective Blex - agent One or two to play the sheriff and their deputy/deputies Wade - deputy

    Taking back the land

    Hello everyone! So one of my favorite role plays I made on here was a quest to take back the world from a tyrant demon: A'rrazaah. Unfortunately, that roleplay died out and I want to make a remastered version with more people. Same story, just different people. So, is anyone interested? Here's the original.
  5. I had an idea for a super power system based on the different Paths of Buddhism. such as the Deva, Ashura, Human, Animal, Preta, and Narka paths. With certain personality quirks in each path, and a whole power system for each class. It would be a huge post if I put all the details up. And I already put it down and I can’t copy and paste which is why some of you may see it as simply blank. either way I hope your interested and I’d be willing to post more details but basically deva: Path of the Gods, controls universal aspects. Superiority complex and easily addicted. Ashura psth, emotionally dead lives violence can modify their bodies. Growing arms enchanting muscle stength Etc. Human Path: Decpetive, prideful but bale to learn. Can use their minds as weapons, passion, mind reading, ripping out souls. animal: communication , commanding, or taking of animal abilities. Could potentially summon them to. Ferocious and easily controlled by the human Path. preta path: the path of greed. Always hungry and thirsty yet unable to satisfy that void. Often leaching on others. narka: gealingand judgement. Is pretty complicated and intricate because in the lore this path punishes all other paths based on its life or lives. Then reincarnates then once they have been punished really struggled with it. a lot of rps have to as a school where your working on your powers however I flipped the script andwell you need to keep you powers a secret to avoid fear, ridicule, and ending up in a government lab. Or being a target for recruiting form a shady underworld organization. Sorry im tired I spent hours typing it down only for it not to transfer over.

    Romantic Notions

    I have two Ideas based off of Classics (Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood ect.) with a twist. If you are interested in hearing about them PM me and I would be more than happy to go over them! I am wanting someone who can post often and write more then a small paragraph.
  7. have you ever wanted to be a god in a world? Wanted to make the rules for the inhabitants (at least the ones you control)? If yes plz consider this. also its first come first serve I will update every 2-8 days at the latest I am going to try to revamp this
  8. Our story begins thousands of years ago. With none other than a group of warriors, vagabonds, poets, healers, and many more. A group most people would refer too as...the gods. Yes those gods. You know who I mean. Zeus. Poseidon. Ares. Those gods. They acted like petulant children and it messed with our world. Messed it up so badly that apocalypse has come and they don't know how to fix it. How do I know all this you ask? Because my dad....is a god. Not just any god. My dad is Apollo. He basically drives the sun. Technically he pulls it with his horses and his chariot but it's essentially the same thing. Anyways I'm getting off topic. Pretty much what happened is all the gods slept around and played with our world as if it's a toy. Eventually they ended up at war. The battle lines were drawn and battles raged until eventually some gods died. It majorly messed up our world. Now is the time for a new group of heroes to fight through the wasteland and make the world better than it was in the past. This rp is going to be based in a post apocalyptic setting based around greek mythology. Geological setting will be northeast USA. The gods that have died are Hera, Thanatos, Hades, Demeter, and Artemis. You may choose to play as human, demigod, satyr, or dryad. Looking for a group of 4-6 (including myself) for this rp.

    Fresh Start

    I am ready to start up another adventure. I would like to get back into the swing of things and give myself a dead line again. I am wanting to post every three days for now and move up to a more frequent replies. I am open to any ideas you have and can not wait to hear them!
  10. So my friend gave me a sudden burst of creativity to create a character. The thing about it is that it was during a discussion about rp, but they usually do DC fandom roleplays. Because of this topic the character that came to be would be in this universe. Who is he? His real name is David, but his "hero" name is Sorcar. He is his own hero, as my friend's character was a protege of Batman, and he has the ability to teleport. He wears a hat and mask that covers his mouth. His eyes are the only thing you can see in his face, he also wears a trench coat, and underneath that is typical teenage clothing, as he is around 15, it's still undecided. David though, isn't exactly a hero, yes he is a hero and does not kill, but he steals, especially when he was starting. He is mostly a thief in the beginning of his career (lol). I am not sure the best place for him to live in the DC universe though, my friend said somewhere where stealing is common, so my only idea at the moment would be Gotham. Anyway that is David. I'd really like to do this since it's in my head now, anyway time for what this rp would actually be. I want it to be more of the beginning of David's abilities (meaning more thievery, because I wanna do that). I'm willing to allow anyone with or without powers. I'd say the only thing you couldn't do would be an actual famous superhero (Batman, Superman, Flash, ECT). I'm fine with your character working under them, unless you can convince me otherwise. Anyway, I feel like this could be a fun alternative to. Feel free to ask questions and let me know what you think.

    Corner Cafe

    Tired from those long adventures? Need a little coffee boost? That's right, this is the place to join to quench those thirst urges! We are a friendly bunch, don't hesitate. Genre: Fantasy Location: Terrenus, on the seas side of Casper Idea: Casper's city's own little " Cafe corner" on the seaside in the town of Terrenus. The idea of this role play is to provide fellow adventurers and citizens of Terrenus a place to quench their thirst, and satisfy those rumbling tummies! So many quests and adventures to do so little time to eat? Don't hesitate and join the " Corner cafe" group! Lots of yummy treats to eat, and friends to meet. All races are welcome. Any more queries do Pm me :)
  12. HEY EVERYONE! I'm bored, so what did I do? I created A DUNGEON! it's inspired by a game on the app store called Shattered Pixel Dungeon, but it will be really fun! IT WILL HAVE: EVIL CREATURES TREASURE CURSED ITEMS MAGICAL ITEMS WHY WOULDN'T YOU WANT TO JOIN WOOOOOOOOO! (if you can't tell. I'm hyper) Anyway! Who's interested????
  13. So I had this idea, not sure if it's interesting to others but it is to me, of a world almost exactly like the real world. Only, a long time ago magic existed and was outlawed. Anyone caught would be killed on sight, no questions asked, even if it was for good. Because of this, people have had to hide their magic inside, or do it alone. Magic started becoming merely a myth as time went on, but some families still taught it to their children. However, even those children who grew into adults never taught it to their children. The result, no one was left to fight magical monsters/demons/other creatures who disguised themselves as humans to destroy the world. Slowly. Now, we fast forward to today, where any magical history was lost in time. It was only passed down as fictional stories, and because of this the creatures that made the world suffer roamed free. There are still people who know magic, but it's a very small percentage of the world. To the people who know magic, hide it well, almost never use it. To them, they are the only ones who know magic, and they have no knowledge of monsters. Whether you know it or magic, is up to you. Our story here takes place at a high school called Graysfield Academy. Eveything is going as it should, and nothing seems unnatural. Everyone seemed like they were normal and very nice people, but as I said before, some people hid it well. However, one year in March, seven staff members were fired. When new workers were hired things started becoming... different. People were grouchier, but not to a point that would be suspicious to most; Often times lights would flicker, and the area just seemed darker. The teachers started acting more like robots, but then again, it's March, maybe they are just tired like all the students. Some teachers did still seem to be chipper, however. This is all kind of goes unnoticed for a little while... until a new student arrives. He just seemed to appear out of no where. He seemed to not talk very much, but he didn't look shy. And most people have heard rumors that he doesn't go home after school (This is my character). The rest is all things that will happen. Now, your character can be a simple student, or one with magic. They be can smart and curious, trying to figure out who this kid is; or they can be just an average kid trying to get by, not really noticing these things. You can be whatever type of person you want. I'll be a character as well as direct the story.
  14. Hello! My name is MissAllynn, but please feel free to call me Raleigh or Allynn. Once upon a time, I was very active in Valucre, but quickly faded into obscurity when depression sank it's vicious teeth into me. I'm back now! BUT I need help getting back into the swing of things. I would love to create something alternative...but I also kinda miss fucking shit up and running shit with Madame Valentine. So, I guess I'm really game for whatever at this point. I just need help. HELP ME HELP MYSELF.
  15. If you were given the chance to disobey Fate, would you take it? Introductions Hello! Firstly, thank you for taking the time to read this little interest check I've made. If you stumbled upon this thread by accident, welcome! I do hope I can convince you to stay a little while longer. Please, do take a seat and have a biscuit. Whilst I could probably spend hours composing an essay on as to why I found Fire Emblem: Fates to be something of a let-down in terms of both plot and characterisation, I'm instead going to put my energy into finding fellow writers. Who, hopefully, would also like to explore the characters and world this instalment into the Franchise has to offer. I've listed below some of the characters I'd love to base a roleplay around, along with some general ideas which can be used as springboards for brainstorming. That said, however, I am generally very open to possibility! Whether the narrative is purely canonical, or if it veers off into some outlandish AU territory, whether our focus be the characters found in-game, or instead the (mis)adventures of an OC: I'm interested in seeing where things can go with the information we have and some creativity. Housekeeping This profile is quite new. I have, however, been roleplaying for years now. If you'd like to see examples of my writing whilst I'm still building my content count, please feel free to ask. I am mainly seeking 1x1 set-ups for roleplays. I will, however, consider forming a small group of three to four people if we're able to set up a schedule that means posts will remain regular. My posting length varies between a few sentences and several paragraphs of around ten lines. I'm a firm believer in posting what is necessary and what is fun to write, however, so I don't typically enforce a post-length requirement of any sort: just no one liners, please. I usually post once every one to three days, sometimes more! If you can't post that frequently, however, please don't be put off. I'm perfectly happy arranging something that is weekly or longer in order to fit your needs. Feel free to ask questions! Whether it's here or via a PM, fire away, even if it's something you think might sound stupid! Ideas Please note that all of the scenes listed below are only prompts. They can be changed, tweaked and adapted to what you are looking for, or completely ignored, if you so wish. Moreover, the details are not set in stone, and I do not require that we play these scenes exactly as they are written here. I'd rather they be used for simple inspiration than anything else. I'm a fan of snowballing. This is where we start with something simple, and through writing and improvisation with one another, it naturally builds into something more complex, if we so wish. I'm mainly seeking to play a female Corrin as my main character, whilst also playing other main characters, OC's and background characters in an NPC style as we need them. I'm especially interested in partners who want to play, or are interested in playing: Xander, Camilla, Leo, Ryoma, Hinoka Mikoto, Garon, Felicia or Gunter as their main characters. I would really like to explore their relationship with a Corrin. This, however, does not mean I won't play anyone else, or that I won't play beside anyone else! I am always seeking a challenge and finding ways to adapt my writing, so if you have a request or preference, just let me know, and we can very easily brainstorm something. The above is simply just an expression of interest. 'Hasty Marriages Seldom Proveth Well' To Put It Simply: King Garon tries to set Corrin up into an arranged marriage to an unkind noble. One of her siblings or another character volunteers to take her hand instead. The Full Thing: Ey! 'The Earth Has Music For Those Who Listen': To Put It Simply: Corrin goes missing from Nohr as a child. Years later, it turns out she was raised in a tribe as a slave. The Full Thing: Voila! 'The Lion King': To Put It Simply: A major pre-Fates re-write idea.
  16. Okay, so, I had this idea (with the help of some of my friends) to make a role play where a magical world is in a post apocalyptic state. This world has been this way for a couple years, and there are many villages spread across the world. People have become fed up with the constant harassment from the demons and other creatures that now walk this planet; however no one has been strong enough to fight them alone. People have been strong enough to fight the demons, but not the one behind the apocalypse, otherwise known as A'rrazaah. This would kind of be a D&D-like role play, and yes I have a point. I'm not too sure what all I should put here, but here's what I will put: There has been a secret organization which A'rrazaah does not know about. This is an organization which has sent knights to different villages across the land (so you can be from anywhere) in order to find people willing to fight. That's basically the summary of the whole thing. If you have any questions about this, feel free to ask. Oh, and make sure to let me know if this is interesting to you!

    Fantasy roleplay

    Just a group for fantasy roleplaying. Any may join!

    Your not a special

    Congratulations ! You’ve worked ! Been through college and completed your education! You may have had a good life or a crappy one! Let’s be honest your either working, in college , or both! Life is shitty because it’s boring and it’s pretty hard! Hard because it’s repetive and you were probably horribly depressed because life kicked you in the sensitive bits at Mach 5 and didn’t give a shit you couldn’t get back up! ,And that’s how you ended up here! Either for money or because you’ve been brainwashed to be here! Welcome to the lair! Your officially a henchmen for The evil Dr.Goonburg! A super villain! Remember the only way out is retirement or Death! Pick the proper department for your skills and try not to be the lest incompetent person in your group! Don’t worry your still in competent or instead of being a henchmen you would’ve been doing something boring and generic! ( Note this ad is a satire for this roleplay! ) as you can see this is a hench man receruitment drive! This will be an off kilter Dramatic slice of life. And you can be a smarty, A rescuer ( of bad guys) or a good ole thug, or that rpg using Ahole that ruins people’s day! Do agood and maybe you’ll get a promotion. So do keep in mind you’d be completely human in this rp unless the boss has taken you back for expirmentation. You’ll actually have two the actual Villian and the manager who probably wishes every day he’d ended his life. He’ll get the projects and Assaingments and round you bunch into what needs to be done if your qualified for it! Keep in mind that your somewhat incompetent at least! Unless your a super spy hero but even then you’d have to ocassionaly be bad at the job! Because after all the heros are suppose to win! Much to DoomBurg’s dismay! ( the mistake is intentional As Goon is the nickname he gets for his reliance on you) you’ll probably see very little of this Supervillian unless your the Assult unit in charge of carrying out the missions he does. you have the Recon Division! Responsible for spying and gaining intel and all the juicy things that happen, and gossiping about the other goons and Henchies. You have RND! These are the Intellegent ( I hope) of the group! Put togther to work on scientific , magical , and Sometimes Wacky or extreme projects! This also means your the only responsible ones! ( besides Boss Manager Man!) We have the wonderfully horrible Torture division! Your tasked with the brainwashing, extracting of information, pain inflicting, and punishment tasks that need to be run! No doubt this group is filled with the horribly despicable social outcasts society hates oh so much! Rescue Team!: the special smug arrogant buttholes of the organization! Medicine and Antony and Anger management and the pshychology things are your field! You get a chopped and get to reduce the poor Dr when something goes wrong or ( the more likely option) when an incopotent Goon ruins the plan! Assult: your the goons that are screwed and probably the most incompetent! You attended the Blade Vampire school for accuracy sometime in your previous life more than likely! Your either a pistole tooter, shotgun blaster, Asult rifle guy, or the only decent Sniper! Yea your division suffers the most from replacement and a bunch of the crazies and mentally disable end up here if for some reason they apply gate guard : only one or two these are the second lest competent ( under manager bro) in the whole place. This postion is heavily armed but more for looks and for keeping away the trash and weak vigilante from using the front door. Your ocassionaly a body guard! Has a very specific load out and look. Think the Alley Viper from GI JOE. Defense: heavy weapons and slightly better and less suicidal than assault. Your safe most of the time but when a hero infiltrated or an attack happens you’ll be the first to get your butts kicked and handed back to you, if they don’t kill, you fall into one of the traps, or formerly fire doesn’t happen. Think Rainbow Six Siege but with more , larger map and your the terrorists i will allow 1 person to be a hero 1 to be the sneaky person who tries to gain intel 1 actualky super competent employee who’s actually a traitor mole or spy but who has to act incompetent or else they’ll be found out. charaxter sheets comming upon intrest competence Meter : 4-10 4 You can effectively do anything you know how to do, anything new is going to be a kick in the pants. 10 : WHY DO YOU SUCK THIS BAD!?! Your the bane of the organizations existence, Your the people who run into the protangist and get mowed down by the hundreds. Yes we saw that This is required along with your stats or it’ll be your only stats, down people like stats!

    Justice League RP

    So anybody wanna do a rp on how all of us would do an origin of the Justice League? No tie-ins to the movies or any of the comics, just a cool story where each one of us roleplays as a hero who needs to join forces to combat an alien threat to earth. It would also be nice to do no PVP or have our characters physically fight one another because that would admittedly get a little convoluted with weird versus debates and the such. So how do ya'll feel about this? I'll RP as none other than the Man of Steel himeslf, Superman and I'll need people to play as these specific roles. Batman Aquaman Wonderwoman Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) and The Flash So anyone interested?

    Anyone up for free gold?

    I just created Jax Brozel and I was wondering if anyone would like to go get rich. Would anyone like to go back to the wild west and rob a bank, a train, and pretty much everything in sight. I want to go on a huge robbing spree. Feel free to use as modern of a character as you want. Maybe after we are done we could go store away our riches, or we could keep it for a later date. Whatever you want to do. I'll take whoever is willing to come.

    Dead space Aftershock(DSA)

    This roleplay takes place after the events of Dead Space 3 when Issac Clark defeats the necromorph mother. Even after his success the original organization retakes the society and makes sure the plan is successful by creating multiple mothers on different planets. In an attempt to preserve humanity the people boarded a new type of ship named A.R.C.C(Aftershock Respondance Company Combine) but most of the ships end up being over run anyway because of the requirement for close proximity to planets for recourses. In this RP your character will traverse a non-canon version of the dead space universe while making allies or enemies with the NPCs of the different planets each with it's own perks while also meeting up with the other RP members.
  24. http://m.imgur.com/QBIQoLE?r Genre: Fantasy, Adventure, Chanbara (samurai cinema) Location: Non-canon/Alternative (still haven't decided) Idea: Kenshi Momoku is a blind hanyo (half-wolf demon) swordslayer in search of a band of Seven warriors/swordsmen. As an uprising Shugyosha defecting from a powerful Tadokuro clan several years after the Yokai destruction known as the Onin Wars, he's battled against a variety of different fighters in this New World to put together a squad of supposed elite Slayers that will stand and die among his ranks. In Japan the number 7 is very lucky and sacred. In this thread, I am aiming for Seven because I intend on creating a chaotic neutral / lawfully evil group known as the Nanatsu no Taizai or the Seven Deadly Sins. I'm actually hoping I have at least one participant that could help me IC find and recruit others, but depending on the interest level of this place, we may or may not get too swarmed. Seeing if we are swamped with a whole lot of people, I may actually host an event of some sort in which combatants will have to prove their worthiness and skill in a small 3-5 post spar. * I will remove those inactive which will free up some space. [Seven Deadly Sins] I've actually gathered these notes together from an old site where I originally created the organization. Just a rebirth on Valucre lol. Sin of Gluttony (taken by @@Misty Sin of Gluttony: Derived from the Latin gluttire, meaning to gulp down or swallow, gluttony is the over-indulgence and over-consumption of anything to the point of waste. In the Christian religions, it is considered a sin because of the excessive desire for food, or its withholding from the needy. Gluttony can be interpreted as selfishness; essentially placing concern with one's own impulses or interests above the well-being or interests of others. Sin of Lust (taken by @Robbie Rotten): Lust (or lechery) is usually thought of as excessive thoughts or desires of a sexual nature. However, Lust could essentially describe itself as having a Lust for extreme power, a Lust for prosperity, a Lust for women; there are many meanings to what the Sin of Lust beckons. Sin of Greed (taken by @ezkiel777) Greed (or avarice, covetousness) is, like lust and gluttony, a sin of excess. However, greed (as seen by the church) is applied to the acquisition of wealth in particular. St. Thomas Aquinas wrote that greed was "a sin against God, just as all mortal sins, in as much as man condemns things eternal for the sake of temporal things." Greed is an inordinate desire to acquire or possess more than one needs, especially with respect to material wealth. Like pride, it can lead to not just some, but all evil.[2] Sin of Sloth (taken by @kyuri) More than other sins, the definition of sloth has changed considerably since its original inclusion among the seven deadly sins. In fact it was first called the sin of sadness or despair. It had been in the early years of Christianity characterized by what modern writers would now describe as melancholy: apathy, depression, and joylessness — the last being viewed as being a refusal to enjoy the goodness of God and the world God created. Current interpretations are therefore much less stringent and comprehensive than they were in medieval times, and portray sloth as being more simply a sin of laziness or indifference, of an unwillingness to act, an unwillingness to care. Sloth has also been defined as a failure to do things that one should do. By this definition, evil exists when "good" people fail to act. Sin of Wrath (taken by @VulcanTheDrunken) Wrath (or anger or rage) may be described as inordinate and uncontrolled feelings of hatred and anger. These feelings can manifest as vehement denial of the truth, both to others and in the form of self-denial, impatience with the procedure of law, and the desire to seek revenge outside of the workings of the justice system (such as engaging in vigilantism) and generally wishing to do evil or harm to others. Wrath can be defined as uncontrolled feelings of anger, rage and even hatred, which often reveals itself in the wish to seek vengeance. Sin of Envy (taken by @Al Sa-her): Like greed, envy may be characterized by an insatiable desire; they differ, however, for two main reasons. First, greed is largely associated with material goods, whereas envy may apply more generally. Second, those who commit the sin of envy resent that another person has something they perceive themselves as lacking, and wish the other person to be deprived of it. It can be described as a sad or resentful covetousness towards the traits or possessions of someone else. It arises from vainglory and severs a man from his neighbor. Sin of Pride (taken by Myself): In almost every list pride (or hubris or vanity) is considered the original and most serious of the seven deadly sins, and indeed the ultimate source from which the others arise. It is identified as a desire to be more important or attractive than others, failing to acknowledge the good work of others, and excessive love of self. It is identified as dangerously corrupt selfishness, the putting of one's own desires, urges, wants, and whims before the welfare of people (especially forgetting one's own lack of divinity, and refusing to acknowledge one's own limits, faults, or wrongs as a human being). FAQs: Every member of Nanatsu no Taizai are obligated to follow out and make some adjustments to your character so that they at least have one trait of the given Sin. Consider this, why are you given the title of that specific Sin? What in particular have you experienced or do that rightfully allows yourself to be called that? - If there is a slot already filled, but you wish to still take a shot contact me with the position you wish whether here or PM.
