Here we can talk about and discuss the main storyline, any plot ideas, and any IC battles and such. Well, we can just talk about anything affecting the story here that we feel like should be discussed.

Okay, guys. So for how they all end up meeting... Does anyone have an idea or suggestion?

I was sort of thinking something like they all end up meeting in a park where a demon gate (or something) opens in the park fountain. Even though their powers and such have already awakened to an extent, it could be the first time they hear the legit voices of the Spirits inside them. And, ya know, they have to destroy whatever demons make it out of the demon gate. Thoughts? Ideas? Agree? Disagree?

Okay. So I'm gonna set out some of the basics to make sure we are all on the same page.

    -First, I'd appreciate it if everyone wrote their replies in the third person.

    -Because the RP is anime based, the setting is in modern day Japan.

    -None of the characters have a perfect understanding and control of their powers yet, but will have to develop their knowledge and skills within the RP.

    -The Great Spirits (ie the tiger spirits) are entities whose consciousness is separate from but connected to the characters. They can communicate with each other, and the goal between your character and their spirit is to become completely synchronized (which is difficult and complicated, but can't be undone once it happens). This will take a lot of time and development, and I'd like for you to get my approval first as it indicates a perfect/almost perfect control over your element. Your element becomes like an extended part of your body and soul.

    -Your characters (according to their age) are currently either high school students, college students, drop outs, and/or have a job (or they could be freeloaders without a job, lol) when the RP begins.

I can't think of anything else at the moment, but might add some things later. Does anyone have any questions? Or any suggestion or ideas?

Ignetio suggested having everyone meet during a town festival. How does that sound? I think it's more interesting than my idea of meeting at a park. Thoughts?

That sounds like a good idea! I would say that maybe, they feel something like a calling to a secluded lake at the park? Or would I be that they just meet each other at the festival? Haha I was also thinking that they would do the flying lanterns and for them the flying lanterns lead them to each other. I'm want bad with ideas so yea xD

Yes~ I think the Obon festival is a good idea. The big meeting place for their group could be when they release the paper lanterns down the river. Or they could meet by coincidence simply during the festival.

*Edit* Also, just to let you guys know, I won't be able to be on much today or tomorrow because I'm in the middle of moving. I'll try to check back as much as possible, though.

*WARNING* I suck at making first posts, but the deed is done. Don't kill me too much, okay? ;P

Your characters can meet and/or end up around the moon's reflection however you like. Be more creative than me! lol ^^

I'm gonna go ahead and make a second post because most everyone has posted. Once the roleplay gets going with all the characters, please, guys, try to check back and post at least either every other day or every three days.

If there isn't a post from the last character by tomorrow, I'm going to have to post in the roleplayers wanted to find a replacement. I don't want the roleplay to die, especially this early on.

(Ehhh it keeps logging me out before my post goes up! Fourth time I've typed this...)

Yo! My second post is up! And, again, I'm perfectly capable of doing more than one character. Unless it's earth. I suck at Earth characters. <.<

Also, as the demons slowly come into the picture, do I have anyone willing to take on one or more of their future roles if/when they come up?

**EDIT Aaand do I need to explain anything that's happening in my last post?
