MKRP signup thread (Push forward! Direction is optional.)

Postby anti-paragon on Wed Feb 07, 2007 8:06 am

I was going to ressurect the MKRP signup thread, but then I remembered it never had one. So, hey, it gets a bright and shiney one!

Mossy Knoll RP
Wiki

General Thread information.:
MKRP is a loose RP thread with a 'small town' where interaction with other players is meant to be casual and fun. The RP is set in a persistent world, where constructions stay even years after their original makers have left the thread*. Players can come and go as they please, can do what they please in the small town, and can even build a house where they choose; either from one of the house plots scattered around town, or built (or made) on free areas nearby. This thread is not meant to be a 'primary RP thread', so to speak. This is just a fun way to pass the time. There is never any 'plotline' set in stone; people may just make things up on a whim or may simply go about the day talking to people.

Most notably: this is a great place for people new to RPing to get the feel of things before hopping into a more strict RP!

That being said, there are a few rules and guidelines for this thread:
- While it does occasionally happen, violence is usually frowned upon.
- Doing things to people without their consent is usually asking for trouble.
- Ruining other people's fun usually isn't smart.
- No one is to be stronger than Sage, the resident demi-god of knowledge.

*If something is ridiculous, chances are the characters (and NPCs) will see it as a nuisance and take it down.


What kind of characters are accepted here?
Just about all characters are welcome here. Characters can be silly, prude, magical, technological, sentient statues, blobs of goo - anything. All walks of life are accepted. All imported characters are generally accepted. The only red tape is showing a bio to the current GM.

That being said, this town is meant to be a place that anyone can find relaxation at, whether you bring one of your characters from another RP, make a new one specifically for this place, or just being an imaginary doppelganger of yourself.

This thread is a spinoff of the late War! thread, taking place in the War thread world as if no war ever happened. If you wish to make a new character from this dimension, feel free to ask for some info on the background of this world. Starting a character from this setting is a good way to learn how to make characters from a strict setting, as the world of the War! thread was quite defined.


(Shortened) Plot History:
Since there was no war, Kraggi, the leader of Gal-Zabor, and his daughter, Ann, went out to explore the vast barren lands of the great wastes; a land corrupted by chaotic magics that few can go into and return from. Using airborne reconnaissance to say out of the twisted magic's harmful grasp, they found a small section of land that remained shielded and untouched by the wastes. After making sure the area was able to support life, the skeleton of a small town was built on the site, and Mossy Knoll was born.

Word got out of the isolated spot and some thought it would be an excellent spot to spend a holiday, far from their 'normal' lives and freely protected by the wastes to remain undisturbed. Some of the inhabitants of Mossy Knoll had always lived there. Others have found themselves coming here through less conventional means, or even by accident. But those whom come in find a relaxing little getaway to spend at least a few peaceful days in.

... The original Goal of MKRP was to have a place to post while the War thread was on hiatus, but since then, this easy-going thread has grown as large as it's predecessor.

Actually, MKRP is currently bigger than War (578 pages against 456 for War). Just thought I'd mention that...

With all this said, I think this is a spot that any one can have a little relaxation at, wether you bring one of your characters from another RP, make a new one specifically for this place, or just be you. This is a great place for people new to RPing to get the feel of things before hopping into a more strict RP.

Sounds good. Got room for a dimension-hopping catguy/intinerant artist?

I'm thinking of having Lee pop up there - it's the sort of place he'd be attracted to.

Yup! Both will be fine. Though, Loztein, are you going to bring those guys from this universe or another one? The ones in this universe didn't go into any war. Either way is fine, though the ones from another universe might be looking at Kraggi wierd.. er than usual.

It did. I was there. And MKRP started out more as an attempt to siphon RPing out of LPW than anything else. The attempt, I'm happy to say, failed horribly. It did make a really big really fun RP in and of itself, though, so all was good.

Non-fighty characters are generally preferred, I assume (the little town has a ridiculously effective law-enforcement agency, so if you go about attacking other characters you're gonna get clobbered by Death), but anything goes and the more the merrier!

...provided it's okay with AP. Who is still the GM, despite the fact that that power's only been needed to be used once or twice.

Personaly, I'm rather against new characters this late in the RP, but I think I'm the newest player in MKRP, so that's a little hypocritical of me. Also, those who know me well enough know that I'm fairly xenophobic, so feel free to ignore me. :nervous: Anyways, just be sure to read back a couple dozen pages (reading the whole thing would be insane) to get a gist of who's who and what's going on and I'll be fairly happy.

I wonder if I should put up some kind of profile and backstory for this Likal. It might make somethings make a little more sense.

I've been in MKRP before, but it wasn't very long...I may or may not re-join here with a different character than before, but since the character is definitely going to be appearing quite differently I'm sure she'll know hardly anything about who's who and what's going on.^^;

{Character Bio Below}

Name: Sera Trusdai aka 'Sera'
Gender: Female
Age: late teens; 18
Height: 6' even
Hair: brown, straight hair that doesn't get messy at all
Eyes: dark blue in color, much like a star sapphire

Clothes: wears a pauldron over her left shoulder, straps running across her chest and back to tie it in place. Under that she has on a long-sleeve blue sweat-shirt that fans out at the ends of her arms. She wears grey jean-pants that flare out quite a lot at the bottom, which hardly hide the large gooy-looking shoes that hold at least three pieces of armor on 'em.

Gear: A weapon called 'Keyblade' that manifests at will, the pauldron, clothes and a spare pack of stuff in a large duffel bag. Oh, and a Gummi Ship that resembles something of the R-Type ship with a re-colorization to be green, blue and purple instead.

History: An inter-dimensional traveler, she's been drifting along the space between planets and worlds constantly, enjoying the sights she's seen so far. Her recent turn of events led her here, though landing looks to have left her stranded a bit...

Edit:
Abilities: Aside from the obvious Keyblade-summoning ability and the skill of crafting nearly anything from Gummi Parts, Sera's abilities are somewhat limited. She can cast only low-level Fire, Blizzard, Aero, Thunder and Cure spells without her keyblade. With it, the spells are greater but she often uses them without the keyblade 'cause it's a lot cooler to be able to literally light a candle by touch rather than just fire a wad of fire at it. Without the keyblade, all spells are touch range with the exception of manifesting the energy needed at which then it just needs to touch the element. In some cases the spells can backfire, causing hilarious or not-so-humorous results(depends on the spell used and how employed).

*pats CC on his head* Don't worry. I'll make sure nothing that's already there vanishes. The new people will add. <strike>Besides, Atashi gave the best example of how characters can come and go</strike> Ninjar'd, and I've already proven that I will handle people who do cause trouble.

I, personally, don't think anyone needs to read too far back. Theres only a few things I'd really prefer people to do.


Please make a bio, or point me to one. I'll need a one, however small, even if you're using your persona/fursona.

Secondly, check out the mappy. Mappy tells you where things are. Mappy is your friend.

Thirdly, if you don't know what it is, don't intrude, just ask. If you want ot know what something looks like on the outside or where someone is, ask someone OOC, if you want to join a conversation or use/enter something that belongs ot someone else, ask IC.
Politeness is your friend too.

Again, wit hthe asking thing, keep in mind that some people don't check this thread as often as everyone else, and we can't be there every day. Even Lomgren has to take the odd day off the forums, which usually leads to him going into withdraws... and vicious attacks on people with laptops... and then there was that one time when- er, anyway, a little patience goes a long way. As a last resort, you can always make up an excuse to leave and visit someone else if they're taking far, far too long.


Anything else need covering? Oh, yes. *gets out some OMGBBQ sause for the herring*
There, now everything is covered.

*brings out a bottle of SECRETNAZIOMGWTFBBQ sauce* sorry, had this one sitting around for a while...it's really good stuff, just make sure it doesn't create another Hitler.^^;

that being said, I guess I'll take some time today to create and propose a bio...*goes off to start consulting different ideas*

The Ones from MKRP naturally, maybe with an alternate popping up if for whatever reason a temporary "BadGuy" is needed or I just want to make someone feel rather uneasy. {Besides if I had Ith Garne from The original FKW there'd be a good chance for a War, or atleast some good 'ol fashioned bloodshed. :wink: }

Weird, but Ith was just pretending to follow Sanje, he followed Morfazar, (Which explains quite abit of the stuff he done that we never got to in the RP) didn't you know?

But seeing as in this RP there'd a never been any War, which would mean his origins would be much different, so he'd still be alive... Though he'd be Old, I mean REALLY OLD, and Ilkan would be alot Younger then him, just past his prime actually, geuss he'll be my Main Guy, Ilkanaroi... Him and the alternates of the Guy's from the Zep. {I liked them}
