Art Based Role Playing...
~A NEW GENERATION~
So, my idea was generated due to the fact that rps are generally solely script based ( As in writing - based). Sure, this is great. But what if our imaginations could be seen by others just how we thought, or pretty darn close.
This opens up an opportunity for such creative thinkers and imaginative minds to have a part in making a series with what they have wrote.
This will be accomplished through sprites and custom drawn profile pictures.
Now Sprites... Sprites are the main goal here.
For example when one writes down their role playing message they will also post an animated image (in .GIF format) of their character doing that very action.
Q.That seems great but how?
A.As I said before, through the use of sprites. Let me just show you.
Magix angrily protests," And don't come back near my living space, dirtbag!" as he sends the other hobo flying.
(Obviously with other person incorporated in the .gif as well as the appropriate background.)
Q.Once again, sounds great... but how would we come up with all those "sprite" things in order to get it done?
A. I will hands on teach whomever would like to learn, and I am quite experienced to make them given the appropriate details of the characters.
Q. Now you said something about custom drawn oc profiles? Will those be "sprites" as well?
A. Although you will all get your own sprite profiles with templates, the profile picture will be a cusotmly drawn one all drawn in the same style. I will definitely need help with this, for my drawing is ...ehhhfffy.
Q. Alright great...so what are you waiting for?
A. Well the whole reason I have come to gaia was because I've run dry of ideas of a general story line we can have all of our characters fit into, and a good background roleplaying story. I'm actually not the best roleplayer, so I just felt like you guys could "accidentally" write a story to a future project, of course with twists from myself. But I just need somewhere to start.
...If interested, I do have a story about Magix, which has been said to be original. But I feel that this story must be very very general allowing a great, fun pace for all users. literate and non. Experienced, imaginative people, and non, alike...
Q. Self, are there any more things you'd like to add before you forget, self?
A. ._. Well not that you mentioned it, self. This idea will be branched off into a possible game expansion but definitely also a "Sprite Comic series." Which if you'd like the examples please just ask here. Also a possible animation series. (With the sprites of course)
And finally, I feel that this would be cool if we can incorporate the dice rolling and random number generator features to make this a good combination between gaming and role playing so it's fun for all.
what I need help with...the main discussion in case you don't want to read all of that. (Even though I took all that time :[ )
The story, and any other further features to add, etc.
