Perhaps a character can set an alliance as his arch-enemy?
If you introduced a set of "NPC" villains for that specific perpose, it could, though people would have to be willing to play characters they personally didn't make for that to work. They're villains who'd be played by someone else for that hero's specific series or as "team ups" with the present villain that they did.
Also, would anyone be willing to do a Gundam RP? And I mean with crazy, off the wall designs like G-Gundam had, I loved that series for that.

Valid point. The question remains: Pokemon or Digimon? I personally like Digimon's monsters better than those of Pokemon, but I'm vastly more familiar with Pokemon.

Can't help you there, whichever you think would be more popular or longer lasting I guess. I know nothing about Digimon, though can tell you almost any fact about Pokemon there is.
i have a scenario myself though that I don't know how to work out. I actually want to be one of the first to make a journey RP that isn't as much about the journey as it is the Friends, Rivals, and just people you meet. I have absolutely no idea if this could possibly work, let alone how it would work. Anyone that wants to try helping I will gladly take the advice.
So, I'm thinking of doing an action-packed, over-the-top RP. But at the same time, after Master Mew raised the point of character development, I also want a character-driven RP.
So I was thinking of something along the lines of an Evangelion RP. Without as much pointless religious symbolism or soul-crushing horror. Nothing is as awesome or over-the-top as giant robots--which are more less crazy awesome incarnate--and I want to see flawed characters grow and develop in the midst of that.
It's really just a random idea, but thoughts? Ideas? I'm open to anything, as I don't have any ideas yet about the setting or plot.
If you want awesome over the top action with character developtment you should do a Gurren Lagann like RP rather than Eva xD it's everything Eva has but better and with no mental angst and depression...well maybe a little.
True. It's just that the character growth is much more memorable in Eva, being catastrophic mental breakdowns and all . And also because I haven't finished TTGL yet XD.
You must finish it....now! xD
But anyway it's true that Eva shows a lot of development but the problem with it is that said development always moves back by the whole mental problems that all the characters have and personally I doubt anyone can really have that many problems. Maybe you can do an RP that combines both of their good aspects.
Wait does this mean we're getting Mechas, sign me in!
Yes. We are most definitely getting Mechas .
That or pretty much anything from the Gundam franchise.
Hmm...I've never watched Gundam, but if you want some inspiration for balls-out, anything goes epic action, just go on a Gainax binge. FLCL is short, but amazing, so it should be your top priority. Panty and Stocking and Dead Leaves are kinda crass and vulgar with their humor, but their action is amazing. You've already seen Gurren Lagann, which is good.
Welp, I've tried multiple times to host an RP (and, if I do say so myself, I think some of 'em were pretty good ideas), but none of them got out of the sign-up stage. I think my idea that garnered the most attention (and was my peronal favorite) was this one, and I think I'd like to give it one more shot, but first I want your input. Here's the premise (slightly altered from the original, but I'd still recomend that you read the old SU thread):
It is, essentially, a Pokemon sandbox RP. Players could do pretty much whatever they wanted too within the bounds of the rules. 3 or more GMs (including me) would regulate NPC battles, wild Pokemon encounters, and what items could be found, as well as being able to reward players for good behavior (like giving them a TM, elemental stone, or other rare item, or allowing the next Pokemon they caught to have an egg move or something), while "discouraging" rule breaking via in-game consequences. I think there would be a basic system to move learning/evolution so no one can over-power their Pokemon, but beyond that I'd leave PvP to the players as long as they can do things civily. Almost all battles except wild Pkemon battles would be PvP, as the Gym Leaders, E4, etc. are all players, but the random trainers hanging out in Gyms and stuff would be controlled by GMs, and as previously stated, wild Pokemon encounters and the like are also controlled by GMs. (Which is why I said 3+, so there is a high probability a GM will be on if you want to try catching a Pokemon or something.) I'd give the players a few basic plot threads, but after those wind down conflict and plot would becontolled by the players. Contests would be held whenever the coordinators and judges wanted to, and Grand Festivals would be held whenever a suitablenumber of Coordinators had 5 ribbons. A trainer with 5 badges could travel to Mt. Battle and challenge the E4 whenever they wished to do so.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Anything you saw in the sign-up thread or this paragraph you'd want me to change? Anything I'm missing I need to add? Would you be at all interestd in joining this RP?
