PRPR: DISCUSSION AND OOC


Here we can all discuss the rp, plot, and whatever else. Feedback here would be appreciated and I can answer any concerns or questions here just to keep the other thread nice and tidy.

EDIT:

Posting here so I'm following this thread. Will examine all RP-related matters once I've taken my dog for a walk.

Also, the main thread says "Feedback, Discussion, and Questions are welcome HERE. Applications should be submitted in this thread."

By "in this thread", does it mean THIS thread, as in the one it linked, or THAT thread, as in the one this was written in? Just making sure I have this straight before starting anything.

Got another one: I'm using Conjunctiva for this, so do I just fill out the spirit section? Or the general AND the spirit?

You can also watch a topic by clicking the "watch this topic" button at the right of the page and just above the quick reply box on the bottom, if it helps. It took me a long time to notice it. It will say "stop watching this topic" if you're already watching the topic in question.

"This thread" was not intended to mean the thread linked.

Every character needs to fill out the general information portion. Spirits can ignore the Spectral portion, Spectrals can ignore the spirit portion (if they have no spirit), and normal humans only need the general information.

I do have one small concern. Its mostly the setting. Where dis taking place?

I have learned from freeform rpgs on other sites that usually its best to have multiple threads for separate locations at the bare minimal, cause trying to cram in game a bunch a players in one thread with several different locations taking place at the same time can cause major confusion.

If ya want to keep this in one thread and keep it free form, I suggest at bare minimum a general semi small location, like a single school ground, or some such. Keep it too broad, its going to end up with the same prob.

I'm aware of that issue. There will be multiple threads with each one dedicated to a relatively small location no larger than a city at most. Being an open world, the locations are really up to the players but I'll probably set up a thread for one place to start off.

Sorry I missed this earlier. I have a few inklings of plot and a couple ideas for locations, but what I've put together so far has only been testing the waters.

Brief note: the Code for the Application is available at the bottom of the post for you to copy and paste.

___________
Secondly, I can't seem to decide on a location. I'm thinking we'll use a fictional city/large town like Mayview to start with. Anyone have any suggestions?

What kinda of suggestions ya looking for, a lot goes into building a fictional city. Culture, general location, structure of the town, etc. (Mostly for consistency). Last time, I even mades a map (A terrible terrible map.)

For a suggestion for a fictional town, how bout somewhere in middle America, maybe more leaning toward the Eastern states. It then allows pretty crazy accents to be semi-normal Very Happy.

If none fictional cities are still open, its a little hard to pick a small one, most famous cities that everyone knows about (which saves ya a lot of work designing a city) are pretty big. Personally, Im partial to Seattle.

I'd like to go with somewhere that's structurally unique in a bizzare way, a lot like Mayview. I'm really in love with the whole "city on two hills" thing for some reason. Plus, it makes it easier to envision the town as a whole.

Not exactly a requirement so much as something to keep in mind.

I agree with Baron's preference for a unique layout and I was also considering Seattle but I'm lamentably unfamiliar with the area. I'd prefer to come up with a unique fictional town with a small but dense downtown city.

I'm thinking of making it somewhat egg shaped with the industrial and commercial districts occupying the area around where you might find the yoke surrounded by an oblong halo of suburban residential area. I think we'll have it sitting on a hill with the "yoke" forming a basin at the base and the residential arenas built up around the surrounding area.

I'm contemplating the name Stonehaven.

Any thoughts?

Shell you whip up a map or something else to eggsaggerate the idea? All this worldbuilding is really egging me on to finishing my character sheet. I've got to get cracking; not even yolking around.

I'll map it out later, but I think I'll stick with the Stonehaven idea. If anyone else has any ideas for locations we can add them on as we go.

(love the Egg puns. They're eggcellent) I think Stonehaven is cool. Would it be by any bodies of water perhaps? Or maybe a stone quarry?

I was thinking that it would probably be either around northern Mississippi or West Viginia. If in Virginia it could be near the coast or near the river in Mississippi. The town would probably be very old and perhaps have its foundry as a mining town with an extensive mine tunnelled into the hill. Alternatively the "yoke" basin where the commercial and industrial regions are could be atop the remains of an old stone quarry.

The town could always be a teeny tiny island built into the Mississippi River, with one stray stream cutting it off from the mainland to give it that characteristic egg shape.

EDIT: Okay, I gotta know. Does Harvey eat a lot of orange candy to excuse his medium attribute from the school staff?

I was thinking more orange popsicles but candy works.

I feel I have a kindred spirit in you, Cosmo- I'm really impressed with how much care you put into the appearance and layout of your topic posts.

Thank you!
I think it's a habit I picked up early on. It matters in some cases methinks.
And I'm a big ham for presentation

EDIT:
I MADE A MAP!

I like! Don't know how this didn't catch my notice before. The zones especially; they really make sense.

Anyway, do you guys think it's okay if I bring in a second character? As most of the other players have / will have mediums or tooled-up spectrals, I seem to be the only one who can't have in-post character interaction.

Yeah that'd be fine with me.
