Don't worry, Edge. When we get more people, it'll be better. Battleon was just too fucking strict. You can't even say your age without gettin your post deleted.

Hai. Sorry, I was out. I'm back now, now that no one is on. '^_^ Anyhow, I don't have much to add other than the reason I was absent. Everything looks good so far, I'll let you guys know if I think of anything.

IDEA: How about we further split up the RP board my genre?

Real Life Modern Role Play

Historical Role Play

Fantasy Role play ect. ect.

I second that idea. I'd add some suggestions, but I gotta sleep. I'll try to get them on tomorrow.

As for our first RP, the word apocalypse sort of burned some sort of thought into my head. Zombies. Its a bit complicated, but I'll share my explanations in the 'real' morning when I get some sleep.

Tell me how you guys like the new setup.

I split them up into three different parts basically:

--Long Time Ago
--Now
--In the Future

Then I put magic in some of them to make more, and renamed them:

-Historic - Anything that isn't over modern and isn't modern.
-Fantasy - Historic RP, but with fantasy elements in it.
-Modern - I consider 1850's - 2011 'modern' times to me.
-Sci-Fi - Modern RP, with sci-fi in it. Or in the far future
-Other - In case someones doesn't fit in the others.

The setup seems fine, but if I could make a suggestion...

Do you see how they seem to be arranged by timeline? I think it would be better if they were split up according to genre, then everything in the same genre placed in chronological order. *cough* Did that make sense? If not, here's what I mean. The order I'll be putting them in is realistic fiction, sci-fi, then fantasy.

-Historic (Anything before 1900's in realistic fiction)
-Modern (1900's up to now)
-Sci-fi (future)
-Medieval (anything old with magical stuff)

Now there's something else I see that I'm not sure how to fix in an "organized" matter. While there's chronological order and stuff, not every part of history is the same. There's the Iroquois Indians killing each other as acts of revenge. There's the American Revolution. There's the industrial era. There's WWI. There's the Great Depression. There's all sorts of topics ranging from people's changing daily lives, to technological succession, to mindless killing and war. I don't see how such things can be placed in the same category. If anyone could make a suggestion, please do because I'm all out.


Now, back to what RP we'll start out with. On my idea with the zombies, there's multiple ways to approach it. There's L4D/Resident Evil style, where people are infected through virus. There's Doom style, where people are possessed. Heck, there's even Half-Life zombies where an alien attaches itself to a host and controls their body. Then there's the classic "living dead" zombie. Personally, I prefer the first one. It's most realistic, and we could possibly play as survivors wherever you guys want. I understand if you don't like this idea. Its just a suggestion. :|

Truthfully, I've never played a Zombie Game before - and the only movie I have seen is ZombieLand.

So I don't know to much about them.

I redid the Guild, it has a newer atmosphere to it.

I did arrange the genres in order Edge, in a way/ However I like the way you put it. BUT, I think the ones we got now is fine enough, I don't want TOO many sections, I want as few as possible, while still arranging them nicely.

I understand. I have no idea what the Guild is though. I was gone during the time that you and Dani were running it. I guess I'll go read what's happened and what it is so far.

I have locked The Guild though, because I am currently not in the mood of running it right now.\

I just put it up for my memory's sake.

I've got a suggestion, shouldn't there be an OOC for each IC category. Like each main category (Historic, Fantasy ect.) has an IC and an OOC in it.

I actually thought about that Xillian, however I figured it would make the forums very spread out and I decided it would be fine the way it was.

I don't want TO many places.

Sorry, Ghost, I sent you a PM concerning the Guild's lockage before reading this. For some reason, it didn't alert me of new messages here. :P

Did you intend to unlock it some time in the future? If not, I may be forced to commit ritualistic seppuku. O.O

Having too many places wouldn't be very good. I like the way things are set up now. :D
I think, while we are just starting up, maybe having 3 or 4 RPs going would be good, and at this point, I think we could sort of all lead them, like we did with Guilds, after Ghost got banned. Again.

Too crowded can get really annoying, I prefer this way, maybe a good way is too tag every RP with historical, fantasy, sci-fi, etc?

I'm currently developing a fantasy RP. I've been working on it for quite a while now, just a few minutes a day. I'm thinking about posting it up here now, instead of the AEF. It'll take good quality posts, and serious RPers. Its not a really serious RP but I don't want the noobs that just don't get it screwing around in there. If I put it up here it'll be safe from those kinda people. Once I'm done developing it, I'll put it in here first to see how well it works.

As am I, Vanir. 'Only thing is, I'm still developing it. It's sort of an improved version of the RP I have sitting in the AE forums. Only with the loss of restraints, it will be perfected for a much more suitable effect. If you haven't seen it on the AE forums, the original is called Lost Legends: The Rebirth of Ragnarok (Can't make the accented 'o' on this computer)

Yeah, I looked into that. Seems like a good concept and plot. The prophecy part is similar to mine, except in mine, its history repeating itself. Its Sci-fi and fantasy, but mostly fantasy. Its inspired by the Avatar: The Last Airbender series, and a few of Hayao Miyazaki's films. Originally my idea was from Castle in the Sky and Princess Mononoke, but then I incorporated some elements from Avatar. I'll give you a basic run down.

An archeologist and his team find a huge castle buried underground. Under further inspection they find all sorts of things, robots and machine guns, strange flying machines, laser guns and huge turrets on the castle. The archeologist pushes a few buttons and the castle bursts out of the ground and flies into the air. Driven by greed and power, he unleashes his newfound technology and takes control of the world. He later sets his eyes upon unexplored land in the far north, where our story takes place.

This land is inhabited by seven tribes of people, each devoted to an element. Seven heroes are away for some reason, when the empire attacks. The robot army crushes the people and they capture them as slaves. The heroes return home to see a pillaged village with everyone gone. and the story goes from there.
