    Default Suggestion: Character interaction areas

    I would very much like an area where you can write about your character going about his/her usual routine--not battling, exploring the park, or catching Pokemon. Is this possible at all?

    Yea I've noticed that too. It would be an interesting prospect to do a meet and greet in the forums. Lord knows every RPG buff would be all over it, and it could potentially bring in a whole bunch of new players to an otherwise limited community :/

    Not to mention a great way to find rivals/friends/enemies, all in RP form of course.

    Sounds cool. I think it's a great idea, and one I've hoped would be added on since I started.

    I can definitely see this implemented as just a regular URPG RP, it would attract members and give members more things to do in URPG. I think having lots of things to do is pretty important.

    It's definitely possible and I think it could work too, up to officials and mods and whatnot to approve it and set it up though.

    I like this, you can have a chain saw which I just used to kill my family with as a reward. :7up:

    On her path.

    Except the lookie involved killing each other in insane and creative methods.

    This sounds like great fun. It'd be so much easier to get to know each other!

    This is exactly what I was thinking about and this is a definite "YES!" from my side.

    I'd enjoy this a bit, too. It has my vote, if such a thing counts.

    I would love this. This way, a VERY loose plot can happen, or we can all have something to do while we wait on someone to post in a battle, or the national park.

    Okay then. If this idea is to work, there needs to be a formal way of setting it up and figuring out where it goes.

    So far, we have a very general concept of what everyone wants. Will this be individual threads or a single thread? Would this be considered an RP or something else entirely? How different would this be than someone simply writing a story or summary describing their routine?

    Where would this go? If it's an RP, the Park makes sense, unless it takes place outside of the Park. A story belongs in Stories. Or perhaps in the General Board?

    Let's discuss some more details and see what we can do.

    If they were individual threads, there'd basically be no interaction between them all. If it was all one thread, everyone would be posting in chaos, responding to posts after 4 or 5 more have been made. (assuming there's popularity.) I'd say start it as a single thread as an experiment; if it grows too large, we can break it down by character's residing region.

    I would say consider it as RP; my posts would change style based on other posts, but would probably be third person present tenses, describing my characters actions and talking about my day/capture/battle/etc.

    Perhaps the setting could simply be a trainer clubhouse, much like the Trainer House in Viridian City, and we all sort of hang out there like vagrants.

    As for which board; general sounds the best so far, since it wouldn't fit so well in stories, and wouldn't take place in the Park.

    I agree with what you're saying, but I believe that the best way to handle it is to create an off-topic roleplaying sub board. General is just that, too general to house something like that.

    A new sub-board would for one thing help to emphasize the whole RP element around here, because just tossing it in an obscure board kinda gives it that 'hole in the wall' feel. I think that if you make it, they will come.

    And second, I think a good second reason for the whole RP thing is to attract more people, so if we make it clear that there's a new, off topic RP that's not objective based (like everything else around here) It'd definately get the wheel rolling
