TWBB Forum RP

Post  Raya on Fri Feb 05, 2010 12:03 pm

I'd had this idea floating round my head recently. Would anyone be interested in doing a forum based RP? It wouldn't start just yet of course; we have the mafia and asylum games going on, plus we need to do some planning first anyway.

There's probably quite a few people here who are quite new to the whole RP thing, so here's a handy-dandy FAQ for you Very Happy

What's a forum RP?
A forum RP is essentially an interactive story. Each player controls a character and everybody collaborates in advancing the story. One person writes a post, the next writes a followup to it...you get the idea. The game is controlled by a GM, who comes up with plot and pokes players in certain directions.

So, what and when do I write?
You write about your character's reactions and the events transpiring around them. Some people get very bitchy about others putting words in their own character's mouth but I say it's fine, within reason. Just try and stay IC! Also, try and write at least a paragraph per post. It's not a chatroom; you're not getting away with single sentence posts!

As for when, try and aim for the very minimum of one post a week. If you can't be an active player then don't sign up, because it drags the game down and spoils it for the other players!

How many places are there?
Depends on interest, really. I'll say about 6 or 7, including the GM.

What setting will we be in?
No idea yet. That's what this thread is for!

I have an awesome character idea! She's Mario and Peach's daughter and she has cat ears and all animals love her and her power level is over 9000 and-
STOP RIGHT THERE CRIMINAL SCUM. They'll be none of this Mary Sue malarky going on here! Whilst you might think your invincible, perfect character is awesome, everyone else thinks you're a dick. We'll go more into characters once we've decided on a setting, but for now, keep in mind that the best characters aren't perfect, but have flaws and weaknesses just like everybody else. That's what makes them so interesting!

So, if there's enough interest, what sort of setting should we do? I have a few ideas:
- The TWBB universe
- The universe of another game line
- Generic fantasy type thing

Personally I think a TWBB one would be quite interesting, but I'm open to suggestions. So, anyone interested, or have any ideas?

Why, that happens to be my last name.


I would love to do this. What if we set it in the Smash universe instead of the Brawl universe though?

IMHO, it's about time someone stepped up for this.
Personally, I'd like this to be in an universe other than TWBB's. I think it kinda limits what we can do with the game. Just look at the other 2 games set in TWBB's universe right now, they have the same overall atmosphere. And while I know coming up with an original, non-generic universe is no easy task, it allows for more variety too. Well, that's my opinion on the matter.

I like the idea of an RP finally being on these forums. In the past, I've been apart of two RPs, one loosely based off Heroes and the other based off Resident Evil (the RE one is still technically going on, it's just moving very slow to the point where it'll probably die out soon, partly my fault cause I also kinda lost interest in writing). However, for me, an RP based on Smash Bros. has never been one to ever interest me. That, and I'm just picky.

Hope to see one of these pick up around here.

Hmm I've taken part in a couple of similar collaborative story type things before and they were a lot of fun. This looks similar except there's a GM here and you get less control over other characters and the environment but it still looks cool. Put me down as interested.

I'm in too.

....*Resist urge to create the character Mary Sue Malarky* ....

As for setting, Hmm.... How about Anytown USA? We let the characters define the story and not the setting. I understand we need a besic structure like on a spaceship or in WoW, but I cast my vote for basic suburbia.

The idea I had for the TWBB game was that it was set shortly after the events of the series, and a new threat has emerged to fill the power void. The players would be characters who either didn't appear in TWBB, or only had very minor roles. Sorry guys, nobody gets to play Samus Wink

I agree there's a lot of grimdark at the moment, but as I said, I'm up for all suggestions.

The GM is mainly there to keep the game on track and provide background stuff. The players still have a lot of control, but the GM helps to keep things under control and moving (and throwing in plot twists!). They also have their own character, because they need to join in the fun too Smile Say for instance I'm GMing the TWBB game mentioned above. I know what the threat is, so I can write about how it reacts to the players' actions. It just stops things breaking down into chaos.

The problem with having it based on game lines is ensuring that everybody knows what's going on. For instance, if we decided to do a Zelda game I couldn't join in because I haven't played many Zelda games so I'd be clueless (I know, I know, for shame Embarassed). Crossovers would be good, but it's coming up for the explanation as to why.

Oh, and TJ has just reminded me of something I forgot in my initial post. Another RP to consider is playing as yourself! One of my favourite RPs I've been in had everybody playing as themselves, having been sucked into the world of the Breath of Fire games. Everyone had gained some sort of powers (it's based on an RPG, after all), so the game revolved around learning to use their powers, figuring out why they were there and trying to save the world. It was great fun. Possibly another idea to consider?

I might join this one. Again, I'm pretty swamped with school, and already running a game of mafia, which were the reasons I didn't hop in on Mentok's game, so I can't give you a for sure answer here either.

I have only RPed once, and it was a Smash Bros RP. It was hella fun. only problem was, people started making characters that were *Based* off of smash characters, like Mary Sue Mullarkey, The Lucario pokemon that is the sister to the one in the game, but is red and invincible. And doesnt like to fight.

Fair enough, I've never seen many problems when there's a lack of GM but I'm not complaining.

As for settings I'm happy with anything. I've got an interesting idea for a character in the TWBB universe but I'm happy with whatever.

hurrpedurrr

anyone ever seen/saw The Stupid mario brothers? they have a pretty fun explaination.

portals have opend from "game"-worlds to the real world, and characters from those games meet eachother in the real world.

that could be an explaination, and everyone could choose a character from a series they know, so no cluelessness.

I don't think I like the idea of using pre-existing characters (or characters with lame excuses for a relationship with them) overall.

I'm glad there's so much interest Very Happy

So, the first hurdle's out of the way. Now the crunch question- what exactly does everyone want to play? We've had suggestions for a TWBB 'sequel', a multiverse crossover, Anytown and a fantasy world. What would people prefer? Also if you have any ideas for what the setting would be like, please share!

Blue Madness wrote:I don't think I like the idea of using pre-existing characters (or characters with lame excuses for a relationship with them) overall.

I agree, I'm not a huge fan of people using existing characters since you can guarantee their personalities will get massacred, but the advantage of TWBB is that since the characters are all warped anyway it doesn't matter Laughing

My personal least favorite is still TWBB sequel. I think if we do something else entirely, it'll be a better game overall.
