I think that is a big part that happens with a lot of people here.

I just wish we could find some consistence and newer people. I feel like the best thing for the site would be a wave of new active people. their activity would probably make a lot of the older members go "oh, yeah, that one place is a live again, I should go back because it was fun 'n stuff."

Its all about motivation to post really, people lack it therefore they don't make posts. That being said it takes maybe 10-30 minutes for a person to whip up a solid post, not 5-9 days. Even if you are busy as hell, unless you're on a vacation of somekind you can put together something fairly easily no matter how busy you are.

That's one of the things that irked/irks me the most, it does not take all day to compose a post, ugh.

Hey, speaking of. Which open games are fairly active? I haven't been around in a long while, I'd be interested in picking up an RP again.

Re: Welcome to the Weirdness

Um, none of them really. I brought that up on the last page, haha. The only rp that I'd really count as active right now is the Once Piece one

That's a damned shame (personally, considering I'm not a One Piece guy). Well, I suppose I'll stick around and hope it livens up a bit.

For it to liven up, we'd probably need someone to post some fresh ideas.

Re: Welcome to the Weirdness

Tue Feb 26, 2013 9:29 pm

Ideas for new games? Or just in the threads overall?

Re: Welcome to the Weirdness

Tue Feb 26, 2013 9:31 pm

Kinda both, I'm not sure what's happening with the rp's. I think most of the GM's have given up. You could pm them though and see

Man, I've been back for all of half an hour, and I already miss the good ol' days.

I have an idea that I have posted for votes in the past, but that never came to fruition. I recently have renewed interest in the idea. I could post it for consideration?

Go for it.

I also want to mention that my Dragon Age RP is still active.

What an odd blend...

It was also extremely uninformative.

I guess they're just banking on the hope that people have wanted such a crossover. After all, who wasn't hoping for a crossover between Pokemon and Nobunaga?

I have the dubious honor of having posted the latest idea in the now-off-the-frontpage idea thread. Managed to get a total of one vote. Tried asking if there was anything I could do about it in here. Only got replies from Mathias.

I have other, fancier ideas, but not terribly motivated to write it up. Still might do it for the hell of it.

The magic seems to be dying in parts of the internet. There was this big rulebook someone put together for Final Fantasy with an original system. It was quite popular for a while. I checked it out recently and found it was gone. The webpage had been taken down. Luckily I found an old download link that still worked on a random forum. I may have one of the few copies left.

EDIT:

Fortunately, someone seems to have uploaded it onto scribd so that makes me feel better. And now there is a second, different rulebook being created. That makes me feel even better.

I just up and forgot to even get online lately. Too many distractions got in the way.

That and seeing the old place going so slow does make me a bit saddened.

Most fan made rpgs are crap. I can recommend Anima Prime for Final Fantasy/anime-ish stuff (click on "PDF format").

>151 pages

I was never a fan for those types of RPs to be honest.

As for the idea thread, I seldom ever posted in there. I kinda figured if others approved ideas then that would mean there were others interested and I wouldn't be left alone with the GM bemoaning that no one else was around.

Are you guys so disparaged that you will play any original idea? I have an idea, but since no one is really around to vote except for the few involved in this conversation, I figure a consensus here would be just as good.

Re: Welcome to the Weirdness

Fuck it, I suppose I'd be down for anything.

Re: Welcome to the Weirdness

Eh, I'd still have to see it first, personally am not particularly desperate.

What type? Short ones? Long ones? Tabletop in general? About half the stuff is necessary to read (75 pages) for a GM, zero for a player, the rest being an optional setting, lists of powers and the like.

RPs based on rule books and RPs which use complex stats I mean.

I'll give it a look at the very least, my primary active time now a days will be weekends though since my job sometimes necessitates that I stay out of town Monday-Thursday/Friday.

I would doubtlessly check it out. Been eager to start roleplaying again, been making too many OCs so I need some where to test them out. You have my vote Math.
