It's not supposed to be random mishmash, Crazen. <_<

Also, genre is the like the set model you use. You can have a cowboy from the western genre locale. That place probably has all sorts of people in hats and shootouts and tumbleweeds. A horror movie victim is going to be from a place with lots of long shadows and innocent-looking neighborhoods. :D

Badger got it right, try to do it more like his.

As a friend once told me... "Pat, you're doing it right but you're still doing it stupidly". Sometimes right isn't right enough. You know what I mean?

Do it righter.

sounded like it was supposed to be a random mishmass (dead whale on moon doesnt really reak with congruent storylines) besides, I developed that Idea over the course of 2 years. I have almost an entire novella written.

but dont worry, I see how shooting ants out of your mouth is much less random.

Post by: PatMan33 on August 30, 2010, 09:01:00 pm
Well I'm telling you to change it. :P

If it was supposed to be random mishmash I wouldn't have included gems like this:

All you need to know is that despite being loopy and fun, the quality of your posts cannot be set to the side. You are still expected to write well and work with the rest of the group.

And...

So do you get it? Good. It's not complicated, just don't be an asshat or stupid.

Your bio falls under the "stupid" category and is close to tripping over the whole "write well" thing. Fix it up! <3

Name: Karl the Assimilator
Age: 7755 Rotations of the Sun and Moon
Bio: Karl, one of the Sons of the Stars, is a fledgling barbarian, training in Oslofjord, Norway. His training had almost been completed until the wretched dragon, Nyalgth, attacked and devastated his hometown. His family and the other few survivors hesitantly left Oslofjord in search of somewhere new. After three long years and two generations of children, the Assimilator's made their way to Metropolis City in search of a new home. Here, he found a new home, though it appeared to be just as threatening as the previous. Karl now found himself fighting the problems of everyday life.
Genre: Vikings!
Abilities:
Powers of the Gods - Karl has strength and durability that a normal human shouldn't possess. While he usually tries to use this through his battle axe, he can just as easily use it with any other object, or even his hands.
Family Values - Karl has a whole family of Assimilators at his disposal. They're just a phone call away... assuming they can figure out how to work the phone.

Name: Alexis Strainosky

Age: 28

Bio: A fine damsel with enough powder on her face to asphyxiate a seal and enough make-up to feed ten villages. Loves to wear expensive, flashy dresses with huge, flowing skirts (which she is NOT afraid to lift up). You will often hear her giggling all the way down roads lined with the pompousest shops, grabbing the elbows of fine gentlemen with copiously large tophats. She does not wear more frill because it wonít fit around her body.

Genre: Victorian

Abilities

Spinning Skirts
Her enormous skirts have steampunk technology built-in which allow her to get them started on their spinning with a simple swish. This way she can fly all around the city from lovely gentleman to lovelier gentleman.

Powerpuff
She can produce an endless supply of powder puffs. Once she throws them, she can control their movements, asphyxiating her target with furry loveliness (almost like an army of Furbies).

Quick Change
She has developed the uncanny ability to change from expensive frilly dress to even more expensive frilly dress almost instantly. No one has any idea how she stores each dress where people canít see it, however.

Name: Charlie Lass
Age: 42
Bio: Born on Planet 237, It joined the Space Marines at age 18 and quickly became the best space marine out there. But when he was 37, a space alien blew up Planet 237. When Charlie got to him a week later, he was so full of holes, no one would've thought it possible and every space alien out there feared the name Charlie Lass. You will often find him in bars drinking to his heart's content, yet he never seems to get drunk.
Genre: Space Wars
Abilities: Shoot 'em full 'o holes! - Charlie pulls out two twin-barreled rifles and shoots his target with so many holes, they become Swiss Cheese.

Fixin' Kick - Charlie is able to fix any broken machine simply by kicking it.

Charlie's Grand Slam - Charlie's ultimate attack, he punches his target high into the air, flips out a gatling gun and shoots his target until it runs dry, he then jumps into the air above his target and fires his anti-tank rifle loaded with explosive rounds until that runs dry, then throws his target the nastiest sucker punch ever which rockets the target into the ground while Charlie lands safely. Afterward, Charlie needs to drink twenty beers in order to use this attack again.

Are you serious, dude? You submitted a bio. That implies you're going to play. No two ways about it.

In what world do you think the excuse you just gave to me would pass? Get out of here and don't post in this section again unless you are going to play something. Please.
Title: Re: The "Stop the Mad Scientist with the Giant Magnifying Glass!" RP OOC
Post by: Crazen on August 30, 2010, 10:42:32 pm
1. no, im not trying to be serious

2. its a lot simpler than that. I wrote it bacause it was fun to write. thats about it. where not on the same plane of thought here. I found what you wrote entertaining, so I decided to add something similar. just for s***s and giggles.
so what I said was true (ie, not an excuse)


 why does this keep comming up?* can people stop reading intentions to what I say that arent there? cause seriously, I dont mean anything neggative in what I say, or really much at all.

Post by: PatMan33 on August 30, 2010, 10:54:42 pm
I'll stop reading your intentions when you start taking responsibility for the things you're saying. You can't just explain your mistakes away like that.

When you post in a topic called "Bye, I'm leaving forever", that's pretty cut and dry. And when you post a CHARACTER BIO in a topic meant for CHARACTER BIOS, that means you're interested in playing. You can't throw in "oh I was just kidding", after the fact and after you've been told you delivered a crappy bio. You know, maybe if you had specified at the time you posted that you were making the character for fun and not to actually play, I'd be acting a little nicer toward you. But you didn't, and all of your subsequent actions come off as poor attempts at saving face... which you didn't really lose anyway until you stopped taking responsibility for what you'd written and started making excuses!

Now look, I'm not going to argue this any more with you. Don't come back unless you want to play. I don't want to see a single post from you in any RP topic unless you're interested in playing. End of discussion.

NEXT BIO, PLEASE!

Name: Baron Harry McBrian
Age: Mid-Thirties
Bio: The Baron is a recluse. As long as people have remembered, he's been hanging around his castle on the moor, playing his haunting bagpipes and preying on peasant and sheep alike. In fact, no one knows just where he came from, but the general consensus points to "Walescottireland".
Genre: Vampires!
Abilities:
Dracula? Who's that? I'm Alucard.
Somehow, nearly everyone he meets never realizes he's a vampire. Of course, everyone he's ever met was a moronic peasant who can't tell the difference between a stake and a trowel, so that might have something to do with it.
Luck of the (undead) Irish
He's lucky. Basically.
What the hell is- Yeeeees Master...
By playing his Magical Bagpipestm, he first enrages his opponent then enslaves their mind. Of course, since they're bagpipes, he can only play them for a while before his ears start to bleed.

Name: Jaden Rites
Age: 32
Bio: A contract killer suffering from Schizophrenic Dementia, he was born to a woman of ill-repute. Skulking around from location to location, he follows the whims of whomever can pay him the right currency at the time. His ways are a mystery, wrapped in an enigma, wrapped in smoky bacon. He is often found talking to his gun Jim, and playing games of Russian Roulette. Well dressed in an imaculate white suit, with long blonde hair ( pulled into a neat Ponytail ), he is the spitting image of fashionable man about town. However deep in those bright green eyes lurks something unsavory. 
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Abilities: "What's that Jim? You don't trust him? Hmm... come to think of it, neither do I.": Often at the whims of either insanity, or a wrong doing towards him, Jaden is able to use his gun Jim in an unerring fashion to some desired effect. Not always lethal, but never pleasant.

"Cryptic Contract": Jaden has been given a sheet of paper with the words "Control yourself. Take only what you need from it. [A Family of Trees Wanted To Be Haunted]."

The meaning of the contract is a mystery to anyone but him. Is he supposed to kill someone? Steal something? No one but he knows.

Name: Hank Zephyr; Private Eye
Age: 34
Bio: Life is tough in the big city of Noir, and nobody knows this better that ace detective Hank Zephyr. But still, no matter the case, he has a policy of seeing it through to the end.  So long as his client can pay of course, else things might not go to nice for them.  While on the outside he may simply appear to be a cold, greedy man, inside is a romantic and kind soul, which in turn hides yet another greedy one.  But if you have a problem, he will fix it.
Genre: Noir Crime Drama
Abilities:
Hard-Boiled
Hank Zephyr doesn't have time for your bull****, and you can tell.  His intimidating demeanor is usually sufficent to make his opponents cooperative without him even needing to say a word.  He is simply that cool.

Sleuth Diplomacy
For occasions where his steely demeanor is just not enough, he always carries his trusty 44. Magnum, with which he is a hell of a shot.

It's all about who you know...
...And Hank Zephyr knows everyone.  Everyone.

Name: Richard A. Saurus aka, "Dick"
Age: 23
Bio: Dick is a Nothronychus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nothronychus) from Archaeopolis, a town in Dinoland. He is not the sharpest bulb in shed, but he does alright. Twenty feet long, twelve feet high, and covered in feathers, Dick doesn't fit into human worlds very well, but he tries anyway. He normally wears a black bow tie and a top hat, both of which look ridiculous on him.
Genre: Talking dinosaurs!
Abilities:
Clumsibility
Dick is very clumsy when he's in human lands, but somehow everything seems to work out for the better anyway.

Claws
Dick has four inch long claws on his hands. They aren't very sharp, because they are meant for grazing vegetation, but... they're four inches long!

Size
Although Dick is a strict vegetarian, most humans can't seem to tell the difference and are intimidated by his size.

Is it too late to join? If not...

Name: Pixel Kid
Age: Depends on how long you've been playing
Bio: The main character of an obscure 8-bit video game, Pixel Kid hails from Videoverse. He set out to make himself more famous, and wound up doing odd jobs, often advertising for other characters. He got fed up with this and headed towards NetLand, but found some bad fanart of him. Disturbed, he left, hoping to find someplace where he could make it big. He eventually found his way to the road between Somewhere and Nowhere, and was looking for Power-Ups when he saw the giant magnifying glass. Needless to say, he entered a title screen and difficulty select, then began his quest to finally become a famous hero.
Genre: 8-bit Platformers
Abilities:
Throw Bombs: Exactly what it says on the tin.
Inventory: Pixel Kid can carry a limited amount of items (3), whereas other people can just buy more bags if they need more storage room.
Extra Lives: Pixel Kid can respawn after dying, but he loses all his money and items.
Pixel Skin: Most people comment on how wierd he looks. Also, he is two-dimensional, and as such, cannot move diagonally. He can, however, turn to open doors that are on his side.

Also, that's not what I was going for. It does work, though. Isn't Bomberman more of a Dungeon Crawler than a Platformer? I could be mistaken, however. Feel free to correct me.

Be careful, Talk. Remember how I told you crazy characters are bad for RPs. So far you're proving my point spectacularly well.

I don't think it that extreme. You should't bow out unless you want to or are forced to do so.

Hey Pat, I have Cristophe on my back. You might want to do something about that. :P

I'll leave him in your hands for now. Your character is going to have a very bad time of it soon enough if she keeps hanging out with the Prince.

Hey Warrior, it's okay to have your character take a hit every now and again... in fact, when your character doesn't take hits, that's no good. <_<

And you might want to tone down on the weapon thing. Your character is pulling a lot of weapons out of what I can only imagine is a very special and intimate place. It's sort of a dance, what we're doing. We both make moves but neither of us should really try to pull off a finishing move, at least not right away. You have to give the other players chances to make moves and you also need to make interesting moves. Sometimes you also need to make moves that you know will fail, but will look cool or somehow advance the story.

Firing endless superweapon after endless superweapon doesn't really do much. And it makes your character fairly two-dimensional.

Rocket launcher isn't really a superweapon against a giant robot, I'm just going at what would be weak points on a robot. Railgun... well, I'll just edit my post so it was crushed by said robot.

Ah! That's much better!

I'm not trying to bug you too much, Warrior. You're doing a fine job. But your character was starting to become... godlike. Don't be afraid to take hits and get knocked around. Makes things interesting! I also like how you did some lite role playing for the robot character of mine. That's good stuff! All the best players are able to role play other people's characters. :D

And your post is very good, Oct. I love the motif you're playing with!

Lush... your post isn't good... it isn't good at all.

You're making the same mistakes you've always made. You get one chance to rewrite your post before I ask you to leave.

Would someone else be interested in giving the villain chair a try? I'll tell you up front that the freeform nature of this RP makes it more difficult than normal. Please be honest with yourself in deciding if you'd like to try.
Title: Re: The "Stop the Mad Scientist with the Giant Magnifying Glass!" RP OOC
Post by: Gnoll on September 28, 2010, 07:32:44 pm
I would, but I'd probably end up ruining the character.

Well hey, we can come back to this another time with another wacky villain. For now, we'll just close it off. My part is done so feel free to elaborate on your characters a bit more if you'd like. Otherwise, thanks for playing!

You guys all did a spectacular job with a very difficult project. :)

Thanks for making the RP, PatMan33! I enjoyed it. Frankly, I'd say Pixel Kid is my most fleshed-out human character ever (for an RP). As a matter of fact, you should give yourself a winner badge (if you haven't already) for this. if you already gave yourself one, then you should be the second Double-Winner for this. S'truth.

The game concluded about three hours ago. :-X

But we've got other RPs on the way. Stay tuned!

Post by: PatMan33 on May 12, 2014, 08:50:03 pm
And here I think is one of my favorites. I think I like it so much because despite being totally spontaneous and really unguided, this RP managed to reach a conclusion.

What happened here that didn't happen elsewhere? Why did this RP find success with no planning where others failed miserably despite a concerted effort? This is what intrigues me and I want to spur some discussion on the nature of these games and why they are the way they are. I hope some of you will take part. Feel free to tour the RPs and look around.

I have a strong urge to do a sequel to this one, only because it was goofy and I think everyone had fun. And that's what matters most.
