Roleplayer Likes and Dislikes

Tips: 6.25 INK Postby Zodia195 on Mon Oct 21, 2019 10:19 pm

In this topic players can talk about what kind of RPGs they like and dislike. The purpose of this is to help GMs find players for their RPGs if they want to invite people to their RPGs. So if you are okay with getting invitations to RPGs, feel free to add your preferences here.

With that, I'll get the ball rolling.

RPGs I love-
Romance- If this is a core concept, then I am 100% interested in.
Anime- In this case it doesn't have to a specific anime, I just love RPGs where you can use anime images.
Fantasy- This is especially true if adventure is involved. Not a 100% guarantee, but if the concept is interesting enough, I'll probably go for it.

RPGs I am Open To-
Mystery- I love a good mystery, but I can be picky.
School Setting- It really depends on the scenario, but generally I like this kind of RPG.
Historical Setting- I've been known to join period pieces. This also includes time traveling.

RPGs I am Not a Fan of- (There are exceptions, but that's rare)
Sci-Fi- I am not a huge fan of futuristic worlds. I wish I was, but I prefer fantasy.
Survival- No matter how interesting the idea is, if survival is part of the RPG, I won't join because I like for my char(s) to survive an rpg.
Non-Original- Unless romance is one of it's core themes, I won't join an rpg based on something else in media.
Horror- Yeah, I don't like being scared. I don't mind dark themes in RPGs.

That's about it. GMs, I recommend checking to see how active players have been also. Like if someone here lists they like Fantasy, but haven't been active in months, then they probably won't answer your PM. Happy roleplaying everyone!

things i like

post apoc
nation rp
anything that i can be a necromancer in...
time travel
some video game based stuff like the older Final Fantasy games legend of Dragoon and the like

I am not a fan of romance or slice of life rps I don't mind having romance and a bit of slice of life in an rp but not as the main focus of the rp.

Also if you are going to have a confusing code filled super CS I won't join. Also i don't really care for CS that ask for a life story and paragraphs of personality. Why can't we just keep things simple...

Anywho kinda getting off topic there but there ya have my likes and all.

Genres I Love
  • Adventure: I love to go on quests!
  • Action/Fighting: And get into fights! Show off some powers, have some fun!
  • Fantasy: Magic, witchcraft, and superpowers~!
  • Magical Girl: Cute outfits, love themed magic, and lessons to be learned!
  • Pre-Modern: Medieval is golden~!
  • Fandom: Some of my favorites are Madou Monogatari/Puyo Puyo, Pokemon, Mega Man Zero/ZX, Smash Bros/Crossover
  • FxF Romance: I am a girl who likes girls! Makes for a great secondary genre / sub-plot.

Genres I'm Down With
  • Modern/Modern'ish Setting
  • School Setting
  • 1x1
  • Group RP
  • Probably whatever else isn't listed.

Genres I avoid
  • Slice-Of-Life: My muse tends to drain when there's nothing to do but live.
  • Other types of romance: Difficult on the muse to write.
  • Science Fiction/Futuristic: Not my thing.
  • Extrapersonal RP: I have no muse for RPs that don't focus upon individual characters.
  • Gun-Heavy Settings: I find guns to be excessively mundane and boring for how powerful they are. I try to avoid them.

I guess I take a bit after the D&D character sheet building a bit minus the math. That is focus on well developed character development. A quick two sentences or a hastily written paragraph is not a character sheet. And the reason for a character sheet is when someone goes to interact with your character they know how you might respond or interact instead of having reams of OOC and editing. So well developed character sheets is something I like. They don't have to be essays or anything but they should at least give a clear understanding of the character, their personality, their background, etc.

I like world building in an RP, especially the ones involving magic or advanced tech. Just let it loose and see where it all goes. Some of the most amazing parts of an RP come out through collaborative writing and world building.

Genre wise I like sci fi, fantasy, vampires, werewolves, other supernatural, a bit of romance, furry, anything with Plot and anything with plot development. ;-) Also humans are boring and magic is fun.

School settings have been SO overdone. They're not bad per se, they've just been done to death. So if you must do a school setting do something original like I don't know an academy for slinging magic around in space or something. Or have each study study as an apprentice under an individual master instead of having the typical centralized structure of the modern high school. Like every anime and even half the western media is modeled on "school" and school is just a precursor to work and politics (or maybe work and politics are just like school since no one has really grown up yet). So like I said it's not bad just repetitive. But hey, hot schoolgirls in minidresses so can't really go wrong there. :-)

I also find modern settings rather boring, if not outright disturbing. If I wanted to be set in the modern world I'd read the news not write an RP. I'm sick of the modern world. That's why I read and rp.
