So @Majin Mew and I would like to start a Homestuck RP. Anyone know if there have been Homestuck RPs here before? Either way where making this hapen bro where doing tihs thing.
So yea, do we want to do canon characters, OCs, hmm any ideas?
I saw a Homstuck private RP once but an RP as a whole I can't really remember.
I have never seen one, nor would I be interested. *sighs*
Charles what is it you're interested in? xD and why do you keep sighing?
We used to have a lot of Homestuckers around here. We might still. Go for it. I'm not a fan personally. And Charles, would you like a hug?
Anway, I have a few RP ideas I need a co-GM for.
Lucifuge: This RP is about the eponymous organization, a group of 666 people who claim ancestry of Satan himself. The characters have some degree of superpowers, although the RP is mostly gonna be like a detective one, with a couple actiony bits where the characters either have to confront the main bad guy or maybe some of his minions who are in the way of the investigation. I kinda want to have subject matter that, while not necessarily scary (although if that can be managed, that'd be a plus) is disturbing. Stuff like the players trying to solve a case of missing children, and learning that it's very closely related to why the pate being served at the country club has tasted funny. Or perhaps fighting a demon that lives in the sewers of a town, gets into people's houses through their faucets, and impregnates them with it's larvae in their sleep, the monsters eating their hosts from the inside out. Basically, a very cerebral, dark game. I need someone who's willing to take over when I'm not around, because I've been busy. Being a sick, twisted person like me is a plus as well.
Chthonia: This RP is a tad on the generic side. Just a fantasy game in a setting I've made called Chthonia. The difference here is that it will use the Dungeons and Dragons 3.5e ruleset (The Hypertext d20 SRD (v3.5 d20 System Reference Document) :: d20srd.org). So it will be more numbers based. I'd need someone to help me make dungeons, take my turn for me during battles if need be, and generally run the thing when I can't.
Seekers of the Arcana: This game is about an ancient artifact, having existed since time immemorial. The 22: A set of the major arcana from tarot. Anyone who finds all of these will be granted a single wish. It's also about a journey, of a group of people known as Seekers, those who are looking for the Arcana. They possess relics, magical artifacts who let them sense the Arcana for what they are. Things like a matchbook who's matches will burn anything until there is nothing left, or a glass eye that lets the user command anyone they have direct eye contact with, or a knife that always seems to head straight for someone's jugular. It's also about strife, for wielders of relics are followed by Nemeses, beings who are their equal and opposite number, and possess their own powers which directly counter their own. Most of the RP will center around the players traveling modern-day earth, finding the Arcana, and occasionally helping each other defeat their nemesis. It will probably play like a thriller novel, with players occasionally getting into scuffles with other Seeker groups. There should also be some more cerebral bits, where players try to deduce the exact location of the next Arcana or perhaps how to get it from someone without having the police after them.
Presently, I can only have two of these: eridan ampora and myself are working on another, and I have a final one that will put me at the five-RP limit.
Humm. I have an RP on another site I'm testing there before I bring here also, thinking it might be a good idea to run a pkmn RP on BMGf after all. Anyone got thoughts on it being brought over here once I think I've got it ready (I'm sure as hell not repeating the same mistakes I made with Lunea's Veil and underplanning it)?
The fun part about it is that it uses the player biogrphies to make the regions - for example after desdendelle put the character up there, I wrote up the history between Ivenco and Britannia, also I let players do a lot of the worldbuilding there if you hadn't guessed by the odd-one-out Dark kingdom.
Heroic I love that first idea. It seems like it would be a really fun RP, however I can't really co-GM since my availability sucks right now as well and any RPs I do will need a co-GM.
Academy RPs I've noticed tend to get a decent amount of SUs however they usually don't have plot. I attempted a different one but I got only two SUs and one was not good quality. Though if we could find one that interests a lot that would be a good RP to do if anyone has any ideas.
@Lavy; Do you have any idea on how you're doing you're Homestuck RP because I've read a decent amount and its really complicated at times.
And now some RP ideas that if the small bit interests anyone we could maybe co-GM:
A new group of delinquents arrive at a juvenile detention facility however while there they notice strange things and have to get to the bottom of it.
Royal Academy is a school that trains Princesses/Princes to be Kings and Queens and Knights to be Knights. However as a new school year starts a new teacher arrives and things are mysterious and strange things happen. (This could also work as a pokemon RP with them having pokemon by their side.)
And something I saw on another site was an academy RP where gifted students go. They had powers like making drawings come to life (my character) and things like psychic powers. I don't know where the plot would have gone though because the RP never made it far when it finally started plus they don't have a mention system.
@Heroic Sociopath; I really like the first and the third one, sadly since I'll be going on vacation soon I can't really say I can CO-GM, it really sucks honestly.
Well I usually always make up plots for my academy RPs, a problem that surfaces it is that sometimes I kind of get bored cause I want people to interact and waiting for them to do so just causes it to drag on slightly, Academy RPs like any other RP need people that can post at a normal pace really.
I like the Royal Academy idea, a classic academy RP xD I'd really really really really like to help you out with at least planning it but considering the date I don't think I'll be able to join *sighs*
Well as for my own RP ideas
I have this idea that I was actually eager to post a week ago then remembered my trip, basically it takes place in a world where humans have learned to control the power of Mana, which is the same thing that Pokemon use in order to fire their attacks and such. Basically humans use Mana to become closer and fight alongside their Pokemon as well as accomplish many great feats, with the Mana abilities being based around the Pokemon types. Basically the RP starts out in an academy for people to learn to control their mana and train with their Pokemon (everyone starts out with just one Pokemon that matches with their mana type) but the RP itself isn't an academy RP it just starts off as one with the first part of it taking place in the academy until the students graduate and go out into the world.
My other idea is called SMASH and it's about an academy of superheroes, essentially students come here so that they can discover more and can control their powers better, the students that graduate are in turn put to work by the superhero organization called SMASH. This RP is an academy RP at it's essence but I want it to have school life and slice of life moments aside from just fighting with powers.
And while I seem to be leaning towards school things my last idea is actually a revived RP that I used to have approximately two year ago
ASSIST: This RP is non Pokemon and a completely normal RP (that I originally came up with from reading a manga) about a club whose sole job is to answer the other student's and even teacher's requests, essentially the group is there to help out the rest of the school and cater to their every need, no matter how crazy or strange it might be, originally the first RP was more of a random RP but this time I want to focus a bit more on the school aspect of it while also focusing more on the character's lives and pasts.
@Flaze; What is going to be the date of your vacation? Also that last idea wouldn't happen to be based on Medaka's Box would it?
And I just remembered when I first joined BMG there was a pokemon/avatar RP with like dark benders and stuff like that that seemed really interesting but the GM disapeared and it never made it to start up. Would anyone be interested in it if I attempted it? I would need a co-GM though.
@Harpy - It would probably have to be an AU style RP, or alternate timeline (of which there are endless in the Homestuck world XD ). So you could use any character from any point in the HS world to date, and there could even be multiple RPers for a single character because there are so many variations of each one. But yea, set in an alternate/original game session or something. Like an Alternia in which the Condesce wasn't such a killer bitch or one in which she became the ultimate baddy like Lord English, or one where the kids meet the trolls early on or something.
Heroic Sociopath-I like your second idea, using the d20 system. I play 3.5 and Pathfinder so I have a lot of knowledge of the mechanics and stuff. Can you tell me a little more about it?
Harpy- I absolutely love the juvenile detention facility idea! I did a hetalia RP once where the characters were patients and doctors in a mental institution, and it was so so much fun and really interesting and complex. Definitely interested in helping you out with that if you need it!
