This is the general discussion thread for all out of character shenanigans. Questions about gameplay, asking for joining in, asking for certain characters to play, or discussion of the events in RP will all be put here.

Just an update, for anyone that hasn't seen it yet, I have two threads up for anybody to check out before the game begins.

Canon Character List, the list of all available and taken canon characters.

Pre-Game Voting #1, where you decide how our characters exist in the LBT universe before the game begins.

I would like to request Ruby as a character.  I could also play Petrie and some of his siblings unless someone else would like to take him.


Go ahead and check out my fanfictions, The Seven Hunters, Songs of the Hunters, and Mender's Tale
Mender's Tale.

I wouldn't mind being Bron, assuming he shows up.

I would like to take Ducky's mother and I could take a few of Ducky's siblings.
What's the point in being mad if you don't do mad things now and again?

I think I'll play Ms. Maia, Old One and the Male Rainbow Face.
"As long as humans continue to be the ruthless destroyer of other living beings, we will never know health or peace. For as long as people massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, those who sow the seed of murder and pain will never reap joy or love." - Pythagoras of Samos

"Gaia, the beautiful, rose up, broad blossomed, she that is the steadfast base of all things. And fair Gaia first bore the starry cosmos, equal to herself, to cover her on all sides and to be a home forever for the blessed Gods." - Hesiod

Done!

Also just to add, I've decided to let go of Hyp's dad in favor of Rinkus. So Hyp's Dad is up for grabs if anyone wants him.

Also, may or may not bring my OC - Sophos, into it, depending on if I can find out how to integrate him in a way that wouldn't reveal certain events that I have in mind for him via a future story.

He's not related to any of the canon characters.

^As long as you know your limit to how many characters you can play and keep the playercest* to a minimum, I don't see a problem with OCs coming in game. With that said, your comment makes me want to bring up a concern I do have for this game. It's something I remember happening a lot back in the old RP and I think it's worthy of bringing up here. This applies to everybody playing btw, not just you Belmont, so when I saw "you" I mean a collective "you".

---------------

Playercest, or only playing by yourself with your characters chosen.*

While playing themselves, some members played their favorite characters and just stick with that. They would branch out sometimes when the plot called for it, but there was this thing of always going back to your favorite characters and sticking by with them. This is fine if you're just writing a fanfiction, but you're out in the open on a public forum, writing with other members that want to interact with different characters too. It's not fair for everyone else if you're hogging these characters and not reaching out to pursue the story onward. That doesn't mean shy or more introverted characters have to be OOC and reach out like how an extroverted character would, but there are ways around that while retaining your characters.

This game is all based on self-insertion. I mean heck, that should be clear from the set up coming in that's exactly what it is going to be. Just remember, at the end of the day, while you are playing yourself, it's still a character with strengths, weaknesses, quirks, and their own backstories, even if they might be reflective of your own. How my character is going to react in this set up isn't going to be reflective of me 100% of the time, especially if I'm adding an LBT history in her story.

I was guilty of playercest, taking too much of the spotlight, and other common newbie mistakes back when I was an itty, bitty rper. This RP was the first I ever ran those years ago and I've learned a lot from RPing on other different platforms since then. I also should add, this is going to be my first group RP in over a year. Since I usually RP one on one over GoogleDocs or Tumblr these days.

In short, keep in mind this is a collaborative writing activity, everybody gets their turn, and stick to the basic rules of all Role Plays.

I'll chime in and add a few more I'd like to play. However, if someone else wants these characters, I will relinquish them to that person.

-Elsie
-Ozzie
-Strut
-Willing to play various Sharpteeth, including members of the Raptor pack
-If OCs end up being in play, I may bring Fyn, Zaura (both Amargasauruses), or Sol (a Suchomimus)

And I'd be willing to take Littlefoot if no one else will.

Unless Ducky123 or any other big fan of hers wants to play her, I'll be more than happy to play Ducky again❤.

Of course, I call dibs on Cera❤.  And, there'll be me, too :p.

As for the vote, I picked Amnesiac. As cliched as this will sound, I do find the idea of a character gradually learning of memories of, in this case, another life and how the respective character handles it(along with others around him/her) to be interesting.

But I'm personally on board with either of the two ideas.

Apologies for the slow update folks. My mental health has been kicking my butt along with some other things going on. This RP I'm planning to happen, the process is just...slow right now.

I'll add them in a sec, but I do want to talk to you over pm about taking these two. Not right now since I need to head to bed soon.

The poll is still open until the game begins. For simplicity's sake, I want everyone to do the same one as everyone else so this RP is more organized.

Well it looks like we still have quite a few canon characters that have not yet been taken.  So, in the event no one else wants to take them, I am open to taking Ruby's parents, her siblings, and Chomper in addition to what I have already claimed (Ruby, Petrie, and Petrie's siblings). I have written dialogue from Ruby's family in my fanfics so I think I have a pretty good handle on those characters.

Update: After discussing it with Ratlady, I will have my OC, Ruby, and her entire family.  This means that Petrie and his siblings are fair game for anyone who wants to play them.

I suppose I may be able to take Petrie until someone else wants him. As for the siblings, not sure.

Well, I better bite the bullet now.

Hey everybody, I know I've dropped the ball on this RP. I wanted to get it rolling but RL is just too chaotic right now.

If someone wants to continue this RP, please go for it, I just can't right now.

I'm sorry but I'm not participating in this.
