Our Avatars Were In A Room Together: The RP — Sign-Ups:

Pretty Princess

We are currently not accepting anymore players to the continuation thread at this time. Sorry. If you are interested in joining a thread of a similar nature, click here.

Exactly what it says on the tin. Sometimes they still pop by the room, but they often leave.

Official Rules! Please read these!

SERIOUSLY READ THESE WHY DOES NOBODY EVER READ THESE THEY ARE IN THE FIRST GODDAMN POST AND I LINK TO THEM EVERY TIME MOTHER OF FUCK

1. No godmodding. This includes stuff like autohitting, ghosting, the standard things that are attributed to godmodding.

2. No fixed GM. As of June 22nd, I'm apparently the head GM in that I run things, but you may not hog the storytelling duties to yourself. The GM running the story will have control over the characters involved in it so long as no rule-breaking is involved and no fuss is made, so listen to them if they tell you to do something.

3. You may not derail someone else's plot unless they are inactive for at least a week.

4. Maximum of three two characters at once, because the amount of players in this thread has gotten insane (which is good for diversity, but tricky for GM-ing). These two characters can be anyone you want, so long as they're in your gallery. They don't have to be your current avatar, since that can become impractical, but we'd prefer you at least started out with them as such. Obviously, if you begin causing trouble with your character(s), you will be asked to stop using them.

5. Don't be an asshole.

Seriously. Don't. Nobody likes assholes. And there is a limit to how much you can dismiss by putting "JK! LOL" at the end of your posts.

EDIT:

6. Since this has become a problem with more than one person, you may buff up your characters as much as you like. However, you may not exceed what is canon. For Example: you can't give John McClane Sonic's speed, since he can't do that in canon, nor can you give him the ability to catch bullets, since he can't do that, either. However, he can be allowed to use guns like nobody's business and navigate air ducts like a pro and whatnot.

They can gain new abilities, but only through the plot, and/or if someone else's character gives/teaches it to them. Example: Samurai Jack teaching John McClane how to use a katana.

7. No OP characters. And if you insist on using them, please keep their involvement with major plot developments to a minimum. Alternately, you can simply nerf them. The amount of nerfing you are asked to do may vary from GM to GM, and each one does reserve the right to tell you to do so if they think your character might break the plot. Sorry.

8. When it comes time to vote for a new GM, voting is strictly confidential. Please PM your votes to me, rather than post them on the discussion thread. You may only vote when the polls have been locked. Thank you.

9. Do not bother volunteering to GM if you think there is a chance you will disappear in the middle of it. We have enough hanging plot threads as it is for various reasons, and we do not need more. Not all plots need to be multi-week epics (we are perfectly fine with short ones, too), but if yours is, you need to accept what you are getting into and be prepared to finish what you started.


Discussion thread here.

The thread is here.

The polls are closed.

The winner is:

  • The Golden Bird (GM: Spaz) — Info

How voting works, in case you didn't read the rules (go do that):

  1. You do not vote if you are not in the RP.
  2. If you are in the RP, the polls will be listed as open, locked, closing, and closed.
  3. When the polls are open, voting is not permitted. During this time, you may volunteer to GM a plot/thing/activity you have come up with. It will be added to the polls to be voted on.
  4. When the polls are locked, no one else after this point may volunteer to GM, and barring emergencies, your name may not be removed from the ballot. During this time, voting is now permitted. You may not vote for yourself, and you may only vote once. DO NOT POST YOUR VOTE IN THE DISCUSSION THREAD. THIS IS A PRIVATE POLL. YOUR VOTE WILL BE DISCARDED. Thank you.
  5. Closing basically means move your ass, we're waiting on one or two people to vote who are dragging their feet. During this time, in the instance of close calls or tiebreakers, a revote may be called. You may change your vote during this time, or during when the polls are locked.
  6. Closed means closed. No more votes may be submitted, and we would prefer beyond this point that you didn't change your character(s), either. The winner will be announced shortly thereafter.
  7. Please read the rules. Please? Pretty please?

[down]THE BELOW POST IS NOT CURRENT, NOR IS THE USER WHO UPDATES IT. IT IS ALSO INACCURATE. PLEASE POST IN THE DISCUSSION THREAD IF YOU WANT A RECAP.

Han Solo, captain Of the Millenium Falcon. Which was stolen in the last thread.


I'm going to use this post to tell people what it's like. Basically, we are just adventuring where ever we like. We will visit different universes in the Millenium Falcon, thanks to it's damaged hyper-drive.

As of right now, we are on our way to Fire Fly's system, where we will do adventurey things, and quite possibly blow stuff up.

UPDATE: I guess I'll use it as a running history. After various attempts to keep ourselves entertained, we time skipped to Fire Fly. Sir lancelot then showed up, and is Cloud's servant or something. He then proceded to get the attention of some weird magic thing that pulled the falcon in the moon and attacked everyone with Vampires with laser eyes. After resolving that, we landed in a small town on said moon.

UPDATE 2- well, i forgot to update. were now in castlevania

UPDATE 3- Well I'm a VERY poor historian. We're in a room again. [lol]

A man of few words.
There is lava between us and Joshua's dead body, which is the source of the lava. The Traveler died and is transforming into Cthulu/Chinese Dragon thing. Also, we agreed on a three character cap, right?

This is the sign up? Well shit.

Using Heavy.

EDIT: We are going to be allowed to leave the room and go do stuff, right? Like mentally fuck up Cloud and get Han's ship back?

Slow down. Still just the sign-ups, folks.

Ooh! Almost forgot:

3. Three Two avatar limit, but we'd prefer if you just used one.

There are some more rules to this thread:
  • No Godmodding. No, seriously. You could be a Godlike character, but that doesn't give you the right to blink and end a fight. You will find that extremely powerful characters have been Nerfed. If you are caught Godmodding too much, you'll get ignored and ostracized. Or get a mod holler.
  • You may change avatars as you wish, but alert everyone first, using the discussion thread. Also, you may only use a maximum of three avatars at a time. Also one of the avatar characters must be your present avatar.
  • You cannot use characters that are not in your avatar gallery! That means ANY character that's in your gallery may be used.
  • There is no specific GM. That means anyone can orchestrate fights and rescue missions. Just don't hog the title.
  • You cannot kill off someone else's avatar if you do not have their permission.

More to come soon, maybe. Follow these rules and we'll get along just fine.

If you want a fun and not-so-dark version of this game, go here.

Have fun!

What'd you just say about my hair?!
The limit is on 3 avatars at once, of course. You are allowed to swap in and out. It would be preferable if you used your current avatar. [up] Gah. Ninja'd.

This is all Decade's fault.
Also one of the avatar characters must be your present avatar.

OK, I'm out for now then.

I'm in. I meant that by the first post, sorry if I was unclear.

Nah, I got that. The more original people we can get on here, the easier it'll be to bring new people in as well.

Oh, um... I was kinda going to just start off using the character I wanted to use, and then switch back to the twins when I'd established her. >.< But I don't intend to ever use either of the twins in this... Um, hurm...

...Anyways, tentative claim on my version of Leaf, I guess. We'll see how this works out. >.<

As long as you don't have the perfect Pokemon for every situation, it should be fine.

Whatever works for you. I don't think this will be too strict.

If it means anything, she's just a rookie trainer; all she has are a Bulbasaur, a Pichu and a Clefairy.

For now, at least. I dunno, maybe she might catch some more later on, but for now it's just those three.

Were all gonna slowly get "Better" likely. Of course, the enemies will still fight us the same.

I really want to see some curb stomp battles this time around though. It's cool to have nigh-unwinable Boss fights now and again, but we fought two in a row at the end of the last thread. It got a little tedious. The occasional easy battle/stealth mission wouldn't go amiss.

Sounds good. If that's the case though, I'll have to leave Nyx till later.

Some of the newbs are gonna be extremely lost at times when we make occasional references to stuff that happened in the first thread. :)

Makes sense. Any group with an influx of recruits would work like that.

Also, If we do go into space, We might be able to work out transport fairly easily. With the shuttle from the Normandy, and the Falcon, we could carry at least 20 some odd characters. Plus Clippy dosn't really need that much space, so 21!

Granted, that means slaughtering most of the Normandy crew that survived the Pirates.

So from what I understand, this is less "Our avatars are in a room" and more "Our avatars... In... SPAAAAAAACE!"?

...I like the sound of this, actually. It gives Leaf more things to play with, eheh~

It's just possible ideas I'm throwing around. It's hard to avoid space with Han Solo and Commander Shepherd. Plus those Pirates that went after him.

Plus, it'll give you a chance to catch Space-Pokemon. I'll lend you a suit.

It's "Our Avatars Are EVERYWHERE!"

Much more awesome, in my oh-so-humble opinion.

Your the most active of us all. I think your opinion matter a bit.

I think "Our Avatars were in a room" Is just cool. Or leave it "Are" and get onto the Artifact Title trope page.
