RPG Ideas and Wishes

    Please, we don't need more Digimon RPs. I swear, it feels we have more Digimon RPs than Pokemon RPs on what's supposed to be a Pokemon forum...

    With that in mind, I agree, something with a PMD-like setting would be nice. It's hard, I have good ideas in mind, but I'm not in a good position to GM them also with regards to time. We need some kind of... RP adoption center, where a person can draft an RP up and someone else agrees to run and GM it. :p

    All right. XD I was just saying the idea I had, that's all. Highly unlikely that I'll put it up. XP Besides, I'd love to join in on a PMD-like RP since PMD is my favorite series of Pokémon.

    I strongly agree. I know that at least my RP died due to me starting school and losing all of my time, but that would solve that problem.

    @Avenger Angel - With the idea of an RP adoption center, I'm sure we could get more RP ideas up and running on those willing to run it, but the posts would require quite a bit of tidying up. (AKA deletion of posts by moderators once the RPG is adopted and that the RP Adoption thread should not count towards post count.) Other than those small details, I would be up for supporting it. (A shame the spyro RPG I had thought of never caught on. :p )

    It's still possible to revive it, you know?

    I think one of the main issues would be that loads of people would just submit ideas and the number of ideas waiting for "adoption" would be far greater than ones that get picked up by a willing GM to run them. Not to mention the way the GM decides the run the RP could be starkly different from what the creator intended, but I guess that's one of the drawbacks of deciding not to run your own RP ideas...

    For the adoption centre thing - isn't that close enough to what this thread is for anyways? You share ideas for RPs to gauge interest, and you could just say at the end "I'm not interested in GMing, but if anybody would like to start an RP like this I would definitely join"? If you look two pages back that's what they did with the Cardcaptor Sakura idea. Unless you mean one member writes out full threads for sign-ups etc. and offers them to other members? I don't think a lot of people would do that, unless they wrote it and then lost interest or don't have time or something, so it could be advertised on this thread and then handled through PMs?

    I might be interested in a PMD RP. I'm not a fan of the games, but I can see it working as an RP.

    I've got some ideas in place for a futuristic fantasy/sci-fi Avatar RPG that takes place in a 300 year post-Legend of Korra world. Little bit of political intrigue, conflicts over evolving technologies, and a subtheme of "past vs progress."

    Any interest?

    Depends on how sci-fi it is, but yeah I'm pretty interested.

    Same here. How Sci-Fi would we be discussing? Slightly post-modern, etc.

    Either way, I would definitely be interested.

    Personally, I'd prefer the sci-fi to the Avatar/Korra aspect.

    Well I'd be building off the progression the show already put in place. TLA was very heavily rooted in classic fantasy/medieval settings. LOK was influenced a lot by steampunk. This RPG would be more...cyberpunk...I guess. It's a bit stronger a term than I'd like to use, but that would essentially be the setting. Not so ridiculously advanced, somewhat along the lines of Ghost in the Shell (from what I remember of it).

    ...do I smell a Kamigawa/AtLA mashup here?

    That's a good setup. How would you go about the signups? Would you do both sides, or just the side of the Avatar?

    It's just team avatar. Team "make sure everything doesn't go boom".

    Meh, PMD RPs seem fine on paper, but one issue I had with the game and it does transfer over, (much to my regret and cringe worthy), repetitive RP setup for the game. It's usually the dungeon where it kills the RPG. Things progress so slowly in the dungeons that you either A, wait forever for your team mates (aka other RPers) to do their thing that little to no progress is made and ppl drop out. B, same as A, but this time too much action in said dungeon, aka play-by-play for every single floor and it becomes a clutter of confusion.

    I like the game, but as RP material, it's not really recommended, at least in my opinion. Unless you have a really good method and plot, I think PMD has been beaten to death by now.

    FYI it wasn't my idea; I was just stating possible interest to another user. I have no good ideas for a PMD RP as I don't like the games and don't know much about them tbh. >_> I know it's been beaten to death in the fanfic realm but I've never seen it as an RP (although no question they exist). I think what you're describing might be what happens when they use the game too heavily as a base? Idk, I feel like it could work if done properly.

    Yeah, the dungeon would definitely kill it. Although, I think it'd be better to not include the dungeons, or, at the very least, make the dungeon a special dungeon where each floor/every few floors is a challenge in their own right (probably best saved as the last challenge though). I've seen it done in a fanfic, just so you know. But not in RP form. Still, I'd love it if someone manages to do a PMD RP 'cause the series is my number one favorite.

    As for the sci-fi Korra RP, it's interesting. But I'm in too many RPs (three, to be precise) to join it any time soon. Perhaps in March or somethin'? When my country's schools are on summer break?

    Another idea I had recently was a Super Smash Brothers-type RPG. It's still in the very formative stages, so I'm not really sure HOW I'd be running it; whether as some sort of PVP concept or as something set up as PVP but then evolves into more of a super-crossover-adventure type RPG. Part of me wants to keep to Nintendo-specific characters, though I also like the idea of branching out across the gaming multiverse to incorporate other franchises (see Monty Oum's Dead Fantasy awesomeness).
