Where Are The Roleplayers?

Post by Mako Mankanshoku on Wed Mar 05, 2014 4:11 pm

So, how many people on this site so far are actually into roleplaying? I enjoy it in pretty much any format and a variety of genres. Sleepyhead was even kind enough to provide us with dice in case we wanna roll with rules or some such.

Well I've played a lot of D&D (2nd edition on but not 4th), some D20 modern and future. Do you have a role playing system in mind?

We don't have to use a roleplaying system, really. I've been part of many entirely story-driven roleplays, with no rules system at all, and it tends to work out.

In terms of tabletop games I've only played OVA and D&D. I feel like a system such as Maid RPG, Golden Sky Stories or OVA would be the most appealing to the population of this forum, being that they all have happy roots in anime.

I've heard of the Maid RPG (only in passing though), haven't heard of the other ones. In any case I'd be willing to try out a completely story driven RP game.

I suppose it would be best to wait and see if anybody else takes to the idea at this point. Glad to hear there is at least a little interest, though.

I'm interested in almost any kind of roleplay, so I don't want to restrict what kind there might be in hopes of attracting more people to this place. I can think up some pitches later if you want me too, though.

Sounds good. I was mostly curious about what kind of RP you were thinking of so I could think about what kind of character to play.

We could easily do one of the following.

An rpg set in a general fantasy setting we flesh out ahead of time that is totally story driven and text-based.

A story based rpg set in the world of a franchise we all enjoy, which I don't know what would be examples of yet.

A roleplay with the Maid RPG rulebook

a roleplay with the golden sky stories rulebook (basically miyazaki the tabletop)

an over-the-top shounen parody story-driven rpg

Those are farily simple ideas. If you guys want I can try to come up with some detailed and original pitches, though. Don't be afraid to pitch in your own ideas as well!

Not really digging the idea of the maid rpg but all the other ideas sound interesting. Although most of those ideas sound like they will need someone to be the GM if for no other reason so that there can be a coherent story. Hmm considering the forum we might want to go with playing in a existing franchise (probably anime related), the miyazaki one you mentioned or the parody one.

How about you, Ande, any of those ideas seem appealing to you?

I think it'd be fun to have a story driven rpg, just need to do more research on the rulesets & everything for it. should definitely be fun Smile

If we do a story based RPG which of us is going to be the GM? I could do it as I've DM'ed a few D&D games but I think I'd rather just be a player.

I'd be willing to do it. I've been GM for an OVA campaign and for a D&D campaign before, though not online.

All right sounds good. Of course as the GM if there ends up being a tie for what game we play you decide. That said I don't think there is much conflict yet so as GM it might be better for you to pick what you'd like to run.

I'm going to go with the Shounen parody or with a fandom based roleplay. Please list all anime / video games / whatever you enjoy to see if we share any. If not, then we'll go with parody for sure. You guys seem to both be okay with those ideas.

I'm into, as far as roleplayable settings:

Touhou, Pokemon, Disgaea, Hyperdimension Neptunia, Bravely Default/Final Fantasy, Soul Eater, Smash Bros/Nintendo, Kill la Kill, Pretty Cure. Can't think of any more atm.

Hmm from that list I would be good with Pokemon, Disgaea, Final Fantasy (any but the MMO's or 13), Soul Eater, Smash Bros or Kill la Kill

As for ones to throw into the list: Digimon (games or anime), Dragon Quest (any of them), or Persona (3 or 4)

A few more ideas I cooked up. We could also use more than one game or anime and have it be a crossover.

And to add to the list: Zelda (most of them), or the Mario RPG's (that is the paper mario series or the Mario and Luigi RPG series)
