A somewhat odd interest.
..and welcome to my interest check, which (I hope) to keep very brief as it's topic is fairly specific. But before we get to that, potential partners, a bit about myself..
I consider myself a 'seasoned' writer and roleplayer'. I've been roleplaying for upwards of 6 years. I understand the rules, the "ethics", what's expected. I expect you as a partner to understand these, as well, whish is why I tagged this with 'Advanced'. All of that being said, I roleplay for fun, and if you aren't roleplaying for fun, then why even roleplay? My goal in this 1x1 is for us both to have fun.
I know for a fact that I am not perfect when it comes to this, but I also ask that, as a partner, you use decent spelling and grammar. To coincide, I also ask that your focus as a roleplayer be on the character(s) you play, highlighting character development, plot development, that sort of thing. I value quality over quantity and do not enforce a length requirement (Other than the roleplaying taboo of one-liners) in any way, shape, or form. However, since I see myself at an Advanced level means that I wish for my partner to do the same, especially for the interest I have in mind.
I am an 18 year old College kid. However, my current schedule is actually pretty light, so I don't imagine it getting in the way of me posting every day. While this is my post consistency, it is not a requirement that it be yours, as well. I simply ask that you post regularly and let me know when you can't. Also, please don't disappear on me. If you completely lose interest, just tell me. Its happened before, and they haven't found the body I was completely alright with it, and always will be. That won't take away the fact that I'll be disappointed, but just don't be afraid to let me know instead of vanishing. It's the nicer thing to do.
Now, onto mature content. Guns, violence, gore, love it. This interest I have in mind is full of it. Romance is awesome (MxF) , too, but only if it serves a purpose in the story and isn't there just to be there. Also, I don't do full sex scenes, they make me uncomfortable. A fade to black is good enough for me.
I like playing more than one character. It's just my preference. I really enjoy writing Malazan Book of the Fallen (great read, if you've never heard of it) style with a big cast that all get intertwined one way or another. I can play both male and female.
If you just want to play just male, that's fine. If you want to play just female, that's fine too. If you want just one character, awesome. I really don't care when it comes to these sort of things. As long as you've committed and you're playing with me, play who you like.
I love world building. So don't be afraid to throw in your own ideas and views on what's happening in the world around our characters. My interests simply provide the guidelines on the people, the rest is for us as partners to decide. If you don't enjoy world building, just say so and I can whip up a bunch of ideas for us to go over and pick which one we like best.
I love Google Docs. Seriously, I don't think there's a better application for world building out there. I absolutely love using it, and I hope that you as a partner are willing to at least try it, too. While I would like the actual playing thread to be here on the forums, I would like to forgo the OOC and replace it with Google Docs. But if you really hate it, then we can just use the forums here or do it all through PM.
I take my 1x1's seriously. And what I mean by that is that I hope to develop a real friendship with you. I'm not looking to just write a story with some other person, I'm looking to write a story with a friend. I'm a laid-back young college kid, and I think I'm pretty easy to get along with.
Now that that's all out of the way, let's move on into the actual interests. I'll keep them very brief.
- My first one is to do something in the late 1700s, early 1800s, around all the warfare that was occurring throughout Europe at that time. No real ideas for who our characters could be, but I've been wanting to do a RP set in this era for a while.
-The second will be set in a fantasy world of our making, featuring classical fantasy elements that've been thrown into the 19th century. This is basically the same idea as above, but dipped in some high fantasy. I would prefer to also keep this based around warfare and, more importantly, revolution, but we could even focus in on the political ideals of such an era as well, if you really wanted to.
So these are the only two that I'm looking to start right now, but this list may grow. If you have an idea that is based or similar to one of the two above, then by all means let me know. If you've made it this far and are still interested (somehow), then pop me a PM.
Look forward to hearing from you!
Where have you been all my life?
Everything you're looking for is what I'm looking for as well.
I absolutely love world building too, so I think we'd be a great match.
PM me, I'm 1000% willing to work on the second plot with ya. =]
Here's a sample of my skillz, just pulled this out of the top of my head. A scene that could be used in the RP or something. Going based off of what you said in your post about classical fantasy characteristics, think of this that same way.
Four and five story buildings lined the entire block, growing taller and taller as they flowed towards the center of the dark city. Some were great, brick-made and slender peaks that served as watch towers with no windows and no point of entry on the ground. Each would normally be lined with Harpie soldiers keeping guard over the city, however many were now stunted from blasts or burning alive with fire. On the ground, a young troupe of men lined against a wall. Its leader; a rather slender Gnomish man. Young in age with a long goatee and dark hooded robes. Behind him, pressed against the cement was a tall Elvish woman and three Seelie Fairies - all clad in the same black garments. The Gnome was unarmed, his staff long lost in the midst of battle. Each of the others were wielding only bows with arrows save for the Elf, she was wielding and enormous sword made of a morphing material, currently in the shape of a large, white sword.
All around them, a war was breaking loose. The troupe, part of the Army of Light, each from their own squads, now separated, stood alone in the enormous city of evil. They were to attack one of the larger cities of the Dark Realm as they had done so to the Light. The world of Darkness proved to be stronger than they thought. The pedestrians were just as evil and nasty as the defenders of the city. None could be left alive, they soon realized. Weaving in and out through the tall, slender alleys, they were not likely to be confronted. Above them blasts of fire, sprays of arrows, and bodies flung back and in the slits of the sky the party could see. The Gnome at the front stopped just before a corner of a large alley. To the left laid a large park, to the right laid a government building. .
I like to also allow control between the characters I create as well as the ones you do. It's not necessary, and control wouldn't be permanent, of course, certain characters would remain "ours." For instance, in the end of my post, you could take control of "the Gnome" and take us left, leaving my character to get attacked whilst you, (maybe the Elf or a Fae) protect him. Or we could discuss privately what to do instead of leaving it entirely to the other person.
I've never used Google Docs but I'm totally willing to try it.
Hey if you're willing to give it a try I have an idea on my old 1x1 searching thread. I'm coming back from a long break of thread RPing I've been pen and paper and text RPing as of late but wanting to get back into the old style that I've always enjoyed more. I've never been good at world building so maybe we can work together and you can teach me a few tips and tricks on the way. I usually post fairly regularly unless I have serious IRL issues that require my attention. I also enjoy google docs but unfortunately I left the guild before it started to become a thing so I'd love to give that a go. Anyways I'll post the idea in my next post I have to go find the old thread.
- - - Updated - - -
A young girl runs away from home and into the woods and is attempting to live on her own. (Kind of like in the book 'My Side of the Mountain') She barely makes it by for almost a week until she is found laying sick and in a ball starving by a creature that had only before existed in the realms of local myth. The creature is a female anthro and it is legend to be a goddess (Spice and Wolf Style) The two begin living together and also begin to develop feelings for each other. And then we take it from there.
I seem to remember the idea being developed a bit more but that must have been with people who were interest that I discussed it with.
Anyways that's the basic idea I'm thinking that the goddess character at first as being a kind yet dominate character, not S&M Domming no no no but a strong character I guess would be a better word for it. She would initially sort of take the girl under her wing and we could develop from there, it's more of a starter than any kind of plot but if you're interested I'd love making something beautiful together.
I would be interested if you are still looking to do the fantasy warfare, I have been itching to use a character as a rebel.
