Re: The Nexus of Thieves

I'm very interested in the story and I would love to take part in the story. I won't be able to post my character right away from lack of time but could have a character up within a few days. My only problem is I work a lot and start school soon so I might be only able to post once or twice a week-...

Bloodmoon Rising

Vampire/werewolf rps are, of course, as plentiful on the interwebs as trolls, but that only makes creating an original one a more compelling challenge. I hope I have succeeded at least in part in creating a unique take on the genre. I tried to keep my write up brief so questions will inevitably aris...

Simplicity vs. Detail: Finding the Balance

How long is too long for an RP write-up? My own introductions seem titanic when compared to others, yet they still barely skim the surface of my settings and compared to tabletop rpg books they remain extremely brief. Why are forum rp write ups so obscenely short and how long is too long? How does ...

The Nexus of Thieves

The concept of an interdimensional thieves guild is one I've wanted to try for a long time. Partially inspired by the film Time Bandits and the D&D setting: Planescape, this is my first attempt at doing so. I hope people are as intrigued by this concept as I am and prepared to wade through the c...

Re: Playing Racist or Sexist Characters

I've done this innumerable times for NPCs but never as a player. I guess I either like to play heroes or villains whose evil is equal opportunity. I am always very impressed by players who can create a character like this and play them convincingly.

Re: Your guilty RP pleasures!

I'm a sucker for gender-role-reversal. It's campy, overdone and no one will ever do it as well as Ranma 1/2, but still I find it highly entertaining and will occasionally stoop to basing RPs around this theme.

Re: What makes you the most cross in RPs?

Pocket characters, sometimes called Shoehorn Characters. These are characters which the player has an emotional attachment to. They keep them in some file and try to use them in every RP. When they don't fit the RP they attempt to twist and mangle your setting in order to make them fit, hence the te...

Re: Is Truth an Opinion?

"There are no facts," said Nietzsche, "only interpretations." To what degree is this "true"? Does truth only exist in the eye of the beholder? Thankfully there is this thing called the universe which will intercede in order to plainly demonstrate that some interpretati...

Re: Feminism: Still Relevant?

Secondwave and firstwave feminism, yes. They were about equality under the law and self empowerment. Thirdwave feminism, on the other hand, is about inequality under the law and misandry. It shouldn't even be classified within the same movement for it has more in common with older gender cultures li...

Re: Gay marriage: Yay or nay?

This topic could be replaced with 'Rational: Yay or Nay' without any change in the meaning of the responses. I know that we typically dance around the egos of homophobes by saying that they simply have not spent any time around gays or trans folks, but I have been for it since I started thinking in ...

Re: What's so Great about Vampires?

The vampire is a deeply engrained archetype appearing universally across human cultures from the Aswang of the Phillippines to the Ghouls of the Middle East and the more familiar Vampires of Eastern Europe. The core of the idea is that there can be a being which appears for all intensive purposes hu...

'ello

Greetings all. I've done forum rp before but never on this site so I am looking forward to discovering what the community has to offer. I mainly GM, though, I occasionally play in games as well. My own games are usually high melodrama fantasies and science fictions with detailed worlds and backstori...
