..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!
