In my other account, I'm helping a friend run a Pokemon group based on medieval times. It's called "Kingdom Vaedien". We're still in the process of making it, but it has lots and lots of artwars hehe xD
Well, I am glad to see more groups who revolve more around artists are accepting writers. That's always a nice thing to see.
I'll keep my distance at first. It would be a change to jump from Pokemon RP groups to Mario. But, I've never really put together a fan character (well, one and he's not really acceptable to them). At the same time, I'm in three other groups (helping manage one of them). I'm sure once PMD-U gets running fully; it's gonna keep me busy just like Illumina City and the other one. I've seen through two of those groups, so far, how many other people leave because they are in too many groups or they lose interest.
I'm not saying that I won't show interests toward Truffville Valley. I just don't think I should join it now. I need examples of other residents who have been accepted into the group to gain a better understanding of how I can introduce the character who I plan to use. Since they're not showing the characters that they've accepted; I don't really have some ground to work off of. Besides, I'd like to see what this group plans to do. Are they they kind of group that just lives life? Or are they type that actually allows adventure? I mean, heck, this valley is apparently right outside the Mushroom Kingdom. If they allow characters to go there, I'm up for it. But, if they're planning to sit still; I'd like to see how everything rolls out after their first opening.
That may seem complicated, but to my understanding; there isn't that much detail. Maybe I'm just being picky or finicky toward the idea. It's just how I think with writing I suppose. Anyway, thank you for mentioning groups to everyone. There's so many now. It's kinda hard to decide sometimes.
I have a Pokemon RP group that I'm trying to get off the ground (though most of the problem with that is the fact I'm busy with a full time job) It has a PMD feel to it. I'll leave it here in case anyone is interested
Well, roleplaying is kinda like writing a story but both sides (or how many people there are) are making the story together. You create a character who you then play. You write his/her lines and reactions as the story progresses. It's fun.
Here is an example of start of a RP I am currently having. Featuring Jill the patrat who I use in Armonia group.
"Jill was standing firmly at the warm but slightly humid atmosphere. Victor Greene, the horticulture teacher had asked some volunteers to look after the greenhouse for this Saturday and of course Jill had volunteered in a second. Thus, she was now standing inside the greenhouse. Looking at the big plants. She was still really short and even the normal plants looked big to her. Thank goodness she was not working alone. She heard she was getting some help and was waiting for them. She tapped her foot on the ground and looked a bit annoyed. Where was her help? They were late! (or Jill, maybe you are just too early). "
That is how I started the story and I wait for my partner to write his/her part. We roleplay through notes in this case.
Thanks. I've gotten a lot better at writing thanks to the RP groups. That is the beauty of it. And it's all done for fun so many people (usually) don't really care if you can't write as detailed as them. And this was a note RP. When I RP in chats, I write a lot shorter responses since it happens in real time. Example:
Jenna looked down and pondered the question. "I... I think I could do that, baawh." She said and waited for his response.
