Oh, I’m sure some RPing forums do it. But most just organize games on-site, then actually play them on a chat system.

Anyhow, I’d say you should give it a go, Rayven. I’m not going to join because, frankly, I don’t really enjoy D&D anymore, but I’m sure quite a few people would like to have a go at p&p gaming. Consider this a +1 or whatever.

Yes, I did 1 game so far. It didn't last long, because I don't like to be a D-bag DM and say instant death monster comes. I had them geared up for a fight against a wyvern, the first shot killed it... Crazy.

Insomnia always makes me do weird things... Anyway. I joined because of a series of events, decided not to post was i was gonna post, looked what else i could do, saw an RP board. And decided "Why the hell not?" And i used Dark copy to make something up real quick to see if you guys would like it. If people are interested i'll more then likely put a tad more effort into the description but not by much. The RP is best left a bit surprising.

Umbra Latrunculorum

Start point: A bus traveling across the USA, currently stopped at a quick shop which managed to spell the word convenience right but shop wrong. The name being "Convenience Sop"

It is modern times. For those familiar with GURPS it is TL8. You will be making generally normal folk... well... people that would exist in real life. Who will later on gain a power that you request and i accept.

Normally i would give you a quick story and something more... elegant. However it doesn't work when the story is meant to be a surprise.

Your reason for being on the train is up to you... returning home to the NYC, escaping home of LA, or wandering around USA on a vacation from Ireland. Hell. I'd even accept you having a strange "bus fetish."

It will kinda be a mystery, survival, with hints of exaggerated awesome but with a lot of realism mixed in. Like jumping from a roof can break a leg, getting stabbed and shrugging it off is a no, and other such examples.

Name:
Age/Gender:
Height/Weight:
Key skills:
Key items:
Appearance: (Description and picture best, but one or the other works too)
Strength (Average of all 4 stats is 10)
Dexterity (plus or minus 5 in either direction)
Intelligence (to give an example on how big a difference 1 point it. Monkey would be 6, 4 point difference.)
Health (This isn't HP. It's how Fit you are, how long you can run, handle illness, so on)
Personality and/or History:

Obviously it is in alpha stage of production. Doesn't even have a beta version yet. So suggestions are welcome. I figure if i don't stick my neck out a bit i won't be able to see where i'm going. So what if there is a slim chance of decapitation?

Can't very well tell you without ruining surprises. Uhh... suppose i could try.

The bus raddled across the road, finally reaching the half way point of it's journey it was filled with various people from many walks of life. The sun was shining and the plains were wide, everything seemed perfect. However there was something amiss, not many on the bus noticed it but a single chess piece lay at the front of the bus, just above the steps.

The little thing was staying perfectly still even with the bouncing and rocking bus. The roads out here were horrible and the bus driver new it was about time to stop and check the tires and fill up on gas. The few that noticed the chess piece new something was coming, like a haunting shadow hunting them down. Something was awakening inside the various travelers and the shadow wanted it.

That help any?

No, storyline as in a backstory or a quick run through what the game is all about. :I
Also, put more description into your setting, RP genre, what characters should expect from your game, and most importantly, what makes your RP special.

Try reading up or participating in some of the ongoing and past RPs first.
Heck, most of the RPs here could do with more people to keep them running.
Doing this will let you have a better grasp of how things work here first, then you can revise your RP properly.

No one likes a seemingly half-baked RP with no proper setting, story or outlined rules and how it's being played. ;p
Listen.

I thought the whole "Modern times" and the mention of USA was enough backstory for people to know it starts in a normal earth like universe. There is no backstory except what the characters create. RPing is about unified creation of a story. And i mentioned the genres it could fit under. More would be supernatural and beyond. It's apperance may seem half baked but that's because the experience would be hurt by the more information given. And i've read up on RPs before, been on RP sites before, i RP in real life using mostly the GURPSystem.

And i know the standard working of an online RP.

Story: One day naruto become hokage and become super awesome, but then sasuke returned to destory the village. Naruto then gathered a group of new upcommers to aid him in stoping Sasuke and bringing him back to his senses.

You are one of those ninjas you'll blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.

As for what makes it special is the mystery. Which is why i can't give information on it because then there would be no point to the RP. It's about the experience of the discovery, not the pretended experience of the discovery. I realized before making it i'd have to sell and defend it but a mystery RP is not one that is easily given shape before hand. It's hard to get the balance right.

As for joining an RP. I was planning on it. But i'm still... shopping around for one i'd enjoy.

As for no one liking half-baked stuff... tell that to anyone who has smelled cookies in the oven mid way done. I'm not selling them while they are half-baked. After all there is no use finishing baking a product if no one is gonna buy.

Anybody feel like a superhero/villain RP? no DC no Marvel, no costumes or capes, just people in everday clothes with powers.

Superheroes without costumes? Are you mad man? That's what makes superheroes fantastic, having these extravagant, fantastically powered people with pseudonyms for names and their brilliantly designed related outfits.

I've always been a fan of Infamous because it DIDN'T have that, I ,mean you could suit up, but the rest of us would look at you like a try-hard.

Yeah but Infamous did have that in a way, I mean the outfits they wore weren't like normal superhero but he was still in an iconic outfit which fits superhero standard. Look at Wolverine, the guy once wore his leather jacket and jeans as a costume for quite a while.

Ya see you don't have to be in spandex and tights to be a superhero but you have to be iconic. I'm not saying that spandex and tights aren't cool I mean come-on who doesn't want to look flash and extravagant? That's all part of the fun.

Alrighty well, do whatever you guys want in that aspect then it's not really important,

It'd be interesting to be on the player stand-point for once rather than running the show with a Superhero RP, you should take a look at some of the Superhero ones I have run as I've set up a nice OC universe which I think you might enjoy.

Hmm... Has been a while since we had a superhero RP that wasn't X. And I'd like to practice more with supportive characters.

What the hell, let's see what this idea is that you've got. I'm a bit curious.
