Just want to put this out there: if anyone feels another character is overpowered, don't be afraid. Bring it up in the discussion thread, so we can talk about it and find out how to fix this problem with a solution that both sides like.

Welcome to Purgatory!
I've got a small question about the setting of this RP. In the Sign-ups, the reason you couldn't accept the ultra-manly Link is, and I quote...

I really find him extra funny, but then again, this RP is supposed to be somewhat serious.

Now, considering that my first accepted character is only twelve inches high, I think I'd like a more specific explanation for how much silliness is just too silly for this setting.

Basically, I saw Badass Link as being an one-shot joke. While your character, being a doll, is silly, it's not too silly. Yeah, it's funny, yay, but the characters will learn to overlook that, since the only silly thing is that he's stuck on the body of a doll- and he can have his darker, more serious moments. Badass Link is a joke

Falkon told me he wrote it as a joke, and wouldn't mind if it was a rejected. When the character itself (and his actions, thoughts, and just everything about him) is a joke, then it's just too much. When the circumstances surrounding the character put him in a situation that is silly, but that also allows him to have some more serious moments, then I find it OK. I can see Chibizama having those serious moments, but I can't see Badass Link having them.

Plus, Falkon had already used Link, and two Links would be just repetitive.

If it's not going to spoil anything, can you tell us how the RP's going to start off? I may not be able to post while I'm away, so it'll be a boon if I can plan ahead of time.

Also, I'm busy trying to figure out the exact nature of Orion's afterimages (and I'll probably try to fit a ZA WARUDO! into the opening post somehow tongue).

I don't think that's entirely necessary, but if you wanna' go ahead with Loyalty!Fluttershy then be my guest.

Not that I have any say in this, but still.

Whoooo?
Necessary? Of course not.

Screaming about how every single RP has a pony and so this one must not is bull through and through, however.

I'm not saying we shouldn't have one, I just think it's a bad idea.

I don't work very well with ponies. Also, it's a crowd-dividing subject, and I really don't want that.

If it's not going to spoil anything, can you tell us how the RP's going to start off?

The best crossover opening in the world: waking up in the middle of the ship! Yaaaaay.

Anyway, guess this is a good time to say: the characters will visit worlds, but they have to be worlds in their canon timelines. If you are, let's use for example, Flanker, and you want us to visit a Megaman world, you can GM it, a la Game of Gods.

IE, if the characters get thrown into Warriors Orochi's world, and Subaru will meet Yoshihiro Shimazu, he won't recognise her?

Do you even ask?

I'm sorry: who, when, what? (<- never played Warriors Orochi)

That's the guy; point being, if you remember, that the way I alternatised Fate and Subaru was to throw them into the Warriors Orochi world. Now, I've noted in my signup that Subaru formed a rather strong bond with Yoshihiro. My question is: If, for example, the characters visit WO's world, will it be the canon world, and Yoshihiro won't recognise Subaru, or will it be the alternate world, and Yoshihiro will?

I've heard of Warriors Orochi, but it didn't seem like something I could get into.

S'it any good?

Welcome to Purgatory!
Warriors Orochi is a series that was originally an excuse for Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors characters to fight each other. But, it managed to develop an interesting original plotline featuring a snake-themed villain, revealed new sides to characters as they interacted with people from the other series, and had unique gameplay gimmicks such as the ability to form teams of three characters and switch between them in the middle of the action. I own the PSP versions of the first two games, in case anyone asks.

I only played the first game with a friend, but it's awesome; it's a Hack and Slash combo-ish game.
Quite the plover.

Huh. Gonna' have to check it out sometime. Never really played any of the Warriors series games, though that's more out of laziness than anything else.

@des: Canon world. Won't recognize. Now that'll be interesting.

You guys may be wondering: when are we going to start?

Well, the answer is: soon. Really soon. Keep your eyes peeled and glued to the screen.
