The Rain Comes
It's the best title I could think of in a 5 second period, don't judge me.
So I'm Rainrain. I actually came from Darknest originally, so I'm a really open RPer to all kinds of things. But I came here hoping to find RP with more solid storylines. I get a little tired of the erotic side of things being 100% of the focus of the RP so I am hoping that here I can find storylines that focus on the storyline and our characters above all else. It really started watching D Gray-man. I finished everything that Netflix has to offer and I just love that anime. So I wanted to do a RP with original characters in the D Gray-man world. But I was just afraid that searching over there I'd just get people that don't care much for what universe it's in and just want to get their sexual kicks from the RP. So I came here seeking, I suppose more serious RP.
So I hope to be putting up an ad for a D Gray-man RP soon either through PMs or a thread. I'm not sure on the details just yet.
But anyways, I'm a long time RPer for many years not beyond just the Darknest type of RP. I started out with simple World of Warcraft kingdom RP where everyone would like up and one at a time would tell the leader of the group which role they wanted to play, be it the king, the queen, the village doctor, or the hobo that lives in the trash can out back. But it felt so wrong doing it. I mean, as you might expect everyone just wanted to be a king or queen, and when that was taken they went to the prince or princess, and if those were full up they picked roles such as archmage or Master Alchemist. And when THOSE roles were taken, they had to be a royal guard or something. You never say anyone who wanted to play just a normal person. It was nothing more than a power game and everyone just fought for attention.
And the plots, dear lord they were horrible. This one time the king and queen (Human King, Night Elf Queen) had a Night Elf druid daughter. The daughter went into cat form, meowed a lot, and loved to prowl around (Stealth). So what happened, was she went into prowl and suddenly that meant nobody could see her. People took the game mechanic so seriously that she was standing right in front of people and they absolutely could not see her. So a big group of people including the King and Queen ran around screaming "WHERE ARE YOU?!" for the next ten minutes straight. Finally, I got smart (In my opinion) and just left.
It felt wrong, because not only did nothing make sense for the Warcraft Universe but the plot was nothing more than people running around like a bunch of idiots losing their minds beause the princess stealthed around in cat form giggling. It was... horrible.
Over time I did small RPs with people here and there and slowly learned what RP could really be like. Then I joined up on a forum and did a RP based on the Warriors books, a series about clans of cats that live in the forest and fight over territory and such. It was the first time that I really learned what it was like to take something that already existed, and make your own world and your own story following all the ground work already set by a book or a game or a movie or whatever you want. From there, I just started RPing more and more. That was probably 6 or more years ago that I really started RPing.
Since then I like to think that I have learned a lot about RP, and I hope that I can show that to anyone who wants to RP with me and that I can do my part in it all to make it enjoyable for everyone involved.
Welcome to the forum, Rain! I'm not an anime fan myself (never watched any), BUT I have seen a LOT of anime-based RPs around here, so I bet you find something in that department fast. Like you, I'm an experienced RPer, having been at it since I was a young teen (I'm 28 now). Anyway, you get the honor of my last post of the night before I go to bed--lucky you :D
WELCOME TO THE FORUMS!!!! have fun :)

Have to edit this post since I just posted something else since welcoming you, thereby making my last post a lie. Now it's true again, as you get my last post :p
