PostSubject: Roleplay Chapter 2   Thu Apr 15, 2010 11:20 pm

ROUND 2 OF ROLEPLAY SIGN-UPS : ROLEPLAY BEGINS 6 PM EST SATURDAY




I got the idea from OGP forums, but I'm changing it up a little bit to my liking and making it easier. Here's the rules.

  • I list the map we're in.

  • You introduce your character if it's your first time posting. (State his/her name, exocores, scroll, class, and action.)

  • Post a picture of your character everytime you post. Max size of 150x150 for every RF character pic. Try to mainly show the face and upper body, like no lower than the shoulders.

  • Pick abilities from the shop I'm about to make. More will be added as the Roleplay continues. When you register your character, you get a free 5 RFP (Rumble Fighter Points) to use to buy abilities. If you defeat an opponent, you win 1 RFP. If you dominate the RPG setting, you win 5 RFP.

  • Even if you have a specific class, you can still pick a job. Pick one from the list.

  • Pick an Order: Guardian or Dark Guardian.

  • Follow my example coming up.

Shaman:

- 0 SPD means you can get 1 hit down. Every +10 SPD is one extra hit, which is why soul fighters are so weak.
- V Skills from exocores consume 30 SP. B skills consume 50 SP.
- All V skills do 20 damage. EXCEPTIONS: Strikers skills do 30 damage. Soul Fighter Skills do 10 damage.
- All B skills do 30 damage. EXCEPTIONS: Strikers do 40 damage. Soul Fighters do 20 damage.
- Nanmus do the same as V skills.
- The amount of STR you have is whats subtracted from the players total ARM.
EXAMPLE:
ARM: 100. Striker uses V Skill. NEW ARM: 70.
(New!) - People with 14- STR can do 2 scroll attacks and a tackle within their turn if they have enough speed. People with 15-20 STR can do 1 scroll attack and a tackle within their turn if they have enough speed. People with 21+ STR can only do 1 scroll attack within their whole turn, to make fairness.

Ha. What tails did sorta reminds me of what DBZ does and most other Role Play games. Until you fight the boss or have some sort of info on the monster you get big fat ??? on most of the info for that monster lol. I thought it's like DBZ because.. "It's Over9000!" really just starts out as ???. Very Happy Anyways, I mightttt.. join this. But I think it's still a bit too complicated. So many classes.. so many attacks and sooo many jobs and soo many things.

And If everyone doesn't? Out of control. I'm a dictator Abbx. I don't allow for even the slightest freedom. If a character dies, make like a Hades or something where they can attempt to get out. Not just.. DEAD.. and then all of a sudden a new character appears. I personally find that uh.. like.. a TV show that introduces a new character everytime another character is dead. Prime example: Naruto. With every dead Akatsuki, another one magically appears. With every dead enemy, another one appears (Zabuza and Haku are a good example of dead enemies long forgotten.)

Actually it was known that the Akatsuki had plenty of members. Its not like they magically appear. There was only one new member who joined later in the show.

Also, Zabuza and Haku arent long forgotten. Just a few months ago, one of Sasukes new comrades picked up his sword from the same town Naruto Bridge was made after the battle.

Bleach doesn't work either. The arrancar are numbered so its obvious lol. The only show that works for your comparison is probably DBZ.

Actually I could make this case:

With every new "arc", we have a new foe.

They defeat the last bad guy, we get a new one. After Zabuza/Haku, we got Gaara and Orochimaru. Etc. So technically... they could constantly keep adding new characters. Even if they reminisce of their old characters.. they still have the new ones continuously popping up.

But the thing is, Im saying that theres backgrounds that they come from, so it isn't any magical appearance lol. Theres villages. A lot of them. If there was only 1 person from each village that'd be hilarious.

But from that you are essentially opening up the door to bring about millions of characters... Why? Because a village has a million people in it that are probably ninjas. -_-
