    Default FREEFORM ROLEPLAYING: Community Thread

    The Story so Far


    Until around the end of 2008, this area of the Giant in the Playground Forum was known as "The Town", by that time, however, there was already a considerable split between the ACRONYM world and the Town proper.

    A while later, the split was officialized by the forum administration when the subforum stopped being "The Town" and became the Freeform Roleplaying area.

    Shortly after this event, Metropolis and then Bleachitp were created, and in more recent times, Narutoitp was born. And in even more recent times, a number of other freeform settings appeared. Unfortunately a number of these appear to be missing the crucial component that is "player interest".

    That is one of the reasons this thread is being created, another reason is to, hopefuly, create a better integration between the players of the different settings, as our subforum is considerably fragmented, currently.

    The Purpose


    Freeform's purpose is fun. Fun for all of us who play our characters here, telling their stories.

    The purpose of this particular thread is conversation and discussion, and to guide newcomers through the various settings here. Most of them have their ground rules listed on the first post of their respective OOC threads, yes, but there are unspoken rules in each of them, facts that a new player will not be readly aware, as well as details of the settings themselves.

    Most importantly, every now and then, players have ideas for new settings, but unfortunately a number of them have suffered a stillbirth from lack of interest. This thread should provide an area where these new settings (which, when so discussed, are discussed in the OOCs of particular settings and seen only by a handful of the community, if they are discussed at all), and hopefuly, avoid the death of good ideas to the ravages of lack of interest from the playerbase.

    What makes this different from other FFRPGs? This is the oldest and most established universe, the one the subforum was created for. It's also the most chaotic and anarchic as there is no overarching plot, consistent rules, or guiding hand. The advantage of this is that you can play any character you like. The disadvantage is that your character may not work quite as expected when they are taken out of their home universe and left to deal with people from different cosmologies. If you value order and consistency, it may not be for you, but for sheer chaotic roleplaying fun, Nexus is clearly the best choice. </biased opinion >

    Seriously, though, may I suggest adding a "PLEASE READ" sign to the thread title? Sorta like the WW Central Thread.

    ¤waves back at Happy Turtle with a big anime wig¤ .... erm... ¤hides wig behind back¤

    A very good innitiative I must say, I myself am trying to start up my second RP, the first one had people interested, but not that big a player base still, and, unfortunately, school brutally dragged me away from the forums. Trust me, I flailed and screamed all that I could, but it fell on my own deaf ears as I sheepishly trodded into the horror that is university full time studies

    And now, as said, I am back, but this time, I can't seem to find players at all.

    The short version of the world I hope to start off:

    Dark, Medieval, European inspired Fantasy, no Elves or Dwarfs or Orcs, not as us fantasy lovers know them at least. A world of spirits and fae that exist inside of a heavy fog that descends upon the land each night, and a world you venture into when sleeping, but venturing too far could cause you to lose your way and not find yourself getting back to your body are both worlds existing within this place.

    Ravens


    However, since it's not up and running and merely gathering people at the moment, I guess it'll have to wait before it can be thrown up onto the list of excellent RP's that Draken's got in his post.


    Furthermore, if anyone need help brainstorming a new world of their own, just toss me a PM or say something here, I'm basically bursting with ideas for most settings, and have been active in the creation of two full factions AND a movie plot and realisation in Bleach ItP, and I've still got more to give (Ravens and Starlight are two completely separate RP worlds for instance).
    I'll top the bill, I'll earn the kill, I have to find the will to carry on, with the show, with the show.

    (thanks Prime for awesum avatar, and thank you to all of the original BleachItP cast, it was great RP'ing with you)

    Good idea Draken. A place for all the settings to come together seems like a good idea to me(even the OOC one here). Yeah, there truly is a split among the different settings and its good idea to bring them all together in one place.

    You have the full support of apeoflight on your side. Also I can help people as well.

    Mind you Ape, the idea is not for the settings to come together, but the players of the Freeform Roleplaying Section.

    Discussions about conjunctions of the settings themselves have been carried time and time again in the OOCs of the different settings themselves, mainly regarding the rather tenuous ACRO/Town split, more often than not, these have similar ends and the vigent status quo is pretty much kept.

    So, in the interest of keeping this on the first page, I'm going to poke the waters a bit and ask how you guys feel about a sci-fi RP. I have a detailed setting ready (ish), but for now I'm just going to say it's on a large colony ship (pop ~2 million) full of refugees of various races*, fleeing from the ruins of the GENERIC FEDERATIONTM, which was destroyed by the EVIL HIVEMINDTM**. There is also a defense fleet too, mostly consisting of human and gray ships, since they had the largest space fleets. Most locations will be on the colony ship, with space available for restaurants, shops, churches, black market gun stores etc etc. There are also 'outside' areas, in the form of the various bio domes that pepper the outside of the ship. The ship is divided into four parts: The White Sector (public space), The Green Sector (vast hydroponics gardens, for food and oxygen), The Yellow Sector (important machinery, including life support, engines and generators. Access is restricted) and the Blue Sector (Comms, piloting and other things vital to ship's functioning. Access is also restricted).
    ...
    Aaaand that's all I can think of putting down right now. There's more, but not for now. So yeah.

    *Current (major) Races: Grays (with tall and short (and elder brain) subspecies, had a tendency to mutilate cattle, and give people hallucinations for the lulz, until the human race found out, and brutally slaughtered most of them), Eldrin (advanced 'precursor' race, was the major power in the Federation), Myrmidons (Big people race. Probably Lizard People), [Name Pending] (Little, Green(ish), but not necessarily Men, and more likely women, since they have a vaguely hive-like society. Consists of Workers, Soldiers, Drones, Experts, Nursers and the Queen), Humans (thirteen legged eldritch abominations with seven eyes, blue skin and a giant fanged maw ) and whatever else you want to throw in. Except Space Elves. Space Elves suck.

    **Is either a super insect genetic engineering hivemind, a robot hivemind, a cyborg hivemind, or an insect-cyborg hivemind. Assimilation is optional.

    Oh, right. I'd like to add to the above in that the style of play will be more like ACRO, Town or Metropolis, in that it won't be as structured as CoT, or the AnimeITPs. It's basically: You're stuck on a ship, hurtling rapidly away from the ruins of the Federation, 100 years after it was destroyed. Also, you can't settle down on a planet haven't been able to settle down on a planet, otherwise the bugs will come and eat you because the bugs came and ate everyone who tried. Have fun. Or something.

    I keep looking at my setting and either thinking: 'This needs more camp', or 'this needs more GRIMDARK'. .~.

    Are you done yet, Kermag?

    The former bar wench tapped her foot impatiently against the rubble. Said foot was carefully wrapped in a ragged leather boot at the moment, magically enchanted to fair better against the sheep (Called as such because they were once believed to have been brought about by Shepherd) and whatever rough terrain they found themselves in, but even magic can only go so far nowadays. They were late enough as is, and that stupid half-breed bucket of bolts was slowing them down even further with its selectivity. Just pick some random guns and come back later if you want to be that picky, for gods' sakes.

    The armory has been successfully emptied, masters.

    KR-MAG, or Kerr, Kermag, and Kermit, as he was called by the others, was a rather peculiar experiment with, as one might guess, K-CORP robots and MagCorp technology. Whether he was made by a desperate Magtok from scavenged K-Corp materials before the infamous cyborg became one of them, or constructed of spare MagCave parts assimilated into the crimson robot empire before its eventual collapse was a mystery nobody really cared enough to think about, including KR-MAG himself.

    Okay, let's hurry. The sun's dropping, and sheep's going to be right in our path to the caravan around...6:47 if we don't hurry.

    It's truly a miracle that smurf's survived as long as she has. Given all the people she lost even before the Sheep came and her relative inexperience with firearms (compared to the other survivors, anyways), one would expect the flock would've infected her in seconds once they reached Gersemi's Isle. Instead, it only empowered her, driving her to achieve miracles for her fellow survivors time and time again with her mystical gift.

    Some time later, they finally made it to the caravan. There'd been a brief scuffle with some sheep along the way, but with some well-placed headshots and KR-Mag's bite immunity, they managed to get by. The caravan however, was not how they'd left it. There was blood on the MagMobiles, somebody's arm bouncing off the turret of an ISF hovertank, and the whole place smelled of death. The three paled at the site of this devastation, and quietly began to back away.

    Oh gods...Melody, why didn't you-

    I-I didn't think they'd...oh gods, we have to get out of here n-

    Sensors detecting enemy signatures numbering in...triple digits! Suggestion: Retre-

    SHRIEEEE!

    As one might expect, Melody, Yasmin, and the rest of Caravan Evans was lost to the Sheep. KR-MAG, given his non-organic form's immunity to infection, was simply bludgeoned and clawed at by the beasts, and managed to last long enough to transmit the fall of Evans to ISF radio before getting scavenged by raiders for parts. Life went on in the Acro wasteland like it always did, and war...war never changes.

    Anyways, this is the rough idea several people including Vespe, Kaela, and others thought up before in chat but never gave a try I had for a darker, post-apocalypse Acro, where the bad guys succeeded in one of their many attempts to ruin the world, and where even the mighty superpowers of Acro are challenged by the sheer, overwhelming numbers of zombies Sheep trying to eat and/or turn them. It's called-

    Acropocalypse Now


    Anyone interested?

    I quit.

    Metropolis is for those who play in it, as it's always been. Any characters in it who I play are now NPCs, save for the baby Benjamin, who chokes itself to death as it sleeps, donating his power to his brother, if his brother's player wants it.

    What few ACRONYM characters I have left erase themselves from reality. The Taverna can be updated by those who want to. As a last gift to you guys, I'm erasing its upper floors. You can get your smut elsewhere. HT and Rebonack have updating-rights for it, but please avoid heavy editing to it. Let it die, if you want, but respect what I built, mm?

    As said, in the first line, I quit FFRP.
    Cheerio!

    Well, I have an idea. What about one based in a Steampunk/Clockpunk world? Is there an FFRP based on that already?

    Not particularly, but it's easy enough to have a steampunk character in Acro or Town.

    While we're on the subject of garnering interest, would anyone be up for a Pirates of the Caribbean-esque historical fantasy FFRPG based in the 17th/18th century?

    I really shouldn't be stretching myself out any thinner, but hey, I liked the idea.

    @Zarah: I'd prefer it to be described as a fantasy-based Pyrate RP, but it seems like it could work. Ship battles could be hard (although I can't help but imagine threads shooting at other threads and how much fun that could be).

    All I would ask is that you please don't run it like Bleach itP. Let players run their own course, man their own sails, and guide themselves to the treasure of role-play! Okay, that sounded better in my head.


    @FFRP Section: Are we getting overcrowded? I know that the Twighlight/Eragon lynching RP's aren't growing that much, but we are getting more and more RP's by the month.

    We have Acro, Town, Metropolis, Bleach, Naruto, Twighlight, Mecha-things, Eragon, ...and... others. I can't remember all of them. There's also Neknoh's Ravens and the above concepts in this thread. In fact, Neknoh's world is probably being choked out by all the universes... Either that or the massive wall of text. A good read, it was.

    Note that I'm not saying we are currently overcrowded, but we are getting there. Any thoughts on what to do?

    Nothing, is my vote. I think there are a few of the threads here that might fit better in Structured, but other than that, I don't see any reason why any new setting that has participants shouldn't exist.

    I don't remember saying we should be rid of them or ban new ones (or anything in that context).

    I assumed, based on the fact that the two options I see are nothing or restrict new settings in some way.

    If other people can think of other options, please speak up.

    That second part would be rather narrow-minded and cruel of me to suggest.

    Maybe just enforcing the "setting name in front of thread title" rule would be enough...

    I've more or less moved on from that idea, unfortunately. Anyone is free to pick it up themselves if there's enough interest though.

    I have been working on another more original setting lately, but I have no idea when it'll ever see the light of day. The best way I can describe it is pretty much "Heroes meets Left 4 Dead meets Fallout meets Half-Life 2."
