Rundown: [community profile] rpanons is an anonymous community for role-play related topics. This place serves as a forum for game discussions, canon discussions, RP solicitations (ATP, game ads, open memes), and advice. The occasional off topic comment is inevitable, but please keep heated social and political topics to their respective communities. Posting them here will only get them frozen. Subsequent threads made to bypass a freeze will then be deleted.

Rules:

Do not post pornographic or shocking images.
Do not share private entries, plurks, chat logs, etc.
Do not use this community as your social/political/hatespeech soapbox.
Do not be redundant. One page does not need three or more threads on one topic/theme. Your unfunny, forced memes also fall under this rule.
Do not treat this comm like your personal therapist. Threads about nonfictional suicide, self injury, rape, and abuse will be deleted. There are better resources out there for you.
Do not treat this comm like your personal Plurk or Twitter. Off-topic happens, but it should be open for discussion and not just a play-by-play of your life. No one cares.
Shut up about Tumblr. If it's not a discussion about Tumblr RP it will be deleted.

been out of RP for a while, and I don't know what's out there anymore! looking for something medium-paced, on the larger side, plot/log heavy, and LCW friendly. my character isn't obscure, but from a fandom that's old and long fallen out of fashion.

If you like horror and shitposting, take a look at [community profile] hadriel Fits all your points!

Maybe check out [community profile] synodiporia. A little smallish, but it fits all your other preferences really well.

Am thinking of apping either Gretel from H&G: Witch Hunters or Cordelia Chase from Angel. Any small-medium games out there that you can recommend, anon? Castmates are a huge plus but that's probably a long shot, heh.

I'm looking for a mostly slice of life game that's LCW friendly. Medium-fast paced would be preferred. I've having a difficult time finding anything faster paced that isn't plot intensive. I appreciate any help you all can give.

OK, rec me some games for Tina or Bob Belcher from Bob's Burgers. No smut, please (Tina is 13 and Bob loves his wife), and they're pretty much animated sitcom/work com characters, so horror and gore are out, too. Thanks!

Tina at MoM just because you could give her butt-touching-related powers. Like she can cure cancer but only with a buttgrab.

Looking to join a game with a Star Wars or MCU cast--I prefer to play side characters but I don't know who would be needed or fun for others to play with and where.

I've been out of the RP scene for 5 years and I'm trying to get back into it with my new fandom, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. My Okuyasu is currently homeless and are looking for a game, preferably one with a Josuke or a jjba cast!

Re: jojos??

(Anonymous) 2017-01-05 12:11 am (UTC)(link)
I see Josukes around on memes and shit, but I can't recall if there are any in an actual game right now.

(Anonymous) 2017-01-05 02:47 am (UTC)(link)
hi! there are five jojos at ryslig! they're all really active and fun to tag.

what games allow fictionalized versions of real people? For what it's worth, the canon I'm thinking of playing from isn't like, a straight biopic like The Crown or The Theory of Everything, but has the real person character in a heavy fictionalized world and influenced by things that don't exist in his real world history (there's magic & shit, for example).

Sci-Fi games?

(Anonymous) 2017-01-10 08:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Looking for sci-fi games, I have a whole bunch of muses from all over sci-fi ranging from Halo, RvB to SW and even Borderlands but trying to find sci-fi based games always eludes me. Heavy plot-focus over SOL would be preferred obviously and I don't really care about size though medium pace would be great too.

Re: Sci-Fi games?

(Anonymous) 2017-01-10 11:40 pm (UTC)(link)
have you looked at [community profile] eluvio? it's a sci-fi game that just recently opened with some good sci-fi casts in it. seems to be headed more towards plotty with some sol stuff sprinkled in.

if you're into smut, [community profile] tanagura is a plot-heavy scifi game set on a futuristic planet with a rigid caste system. smut ac is a requirement, but the rules are really flexible with what kind of threads qualify. so far player actions have overthrown the government twice and caused the castes to flip once.

i'm wandering in from the pb/oc side of insanejournal but i've always wanted to try things out here! is there a small game that would be friendly to ocs with live action pbs? or any pointers on where or how i could dip my toes in would be very welcomed c:

As a person who plays OCs sometimes, I really recommend starting out over here with a fandom character and preferably someone people might've heard of. You don't need to go whole hog and pick from only the latest in bandwagon canons, but play from something that people can glance at and have a rough idea of what they are in about two seconds even if they haven't read/saw/played the canon.

Definitely make it someone you like and can get invested in longterm and be fairly ic with, of course.

It doesn't matter how good an OC is. Dreamwidth was left, wrongly or rightly, with this obnoxious sparkleteen secret-daughter-of-voldemort image in the mid-00's and no amount of people playing okay oc's has lifted it. The painful truth is that nobody cares about your OC unless you give them a reason to, and the primary reason someone might become interested in your OC is because they already know they like playing with you and think you're fun.

I wouldn't play an OC as a first character in a game. Find your feet with a fandom character, then throw in an OC as a second if you like the place and lean on the friendships you've already made to help you find some play for them.

anon above me sounds extremely jaded. i've seen some bad OCs, sure, but i've seen plenty of good ones around too and they always seem to get a fair amount of play imo as long as they're done well and their tags are giving others interesting stuff to respond to. there will probably be people here and there who ignore OCs just because they're OCs, but there are people who refuse to play with LA or anime characters or whatever so it's not really worth worrying about. if you're having trouble getting anywhere with an OC, resist the urge to get a victim complex about it (as i feel most people who complain about DW bring so anti-OC are) and instead consider that the issue might be more about a lack of hooks in your tags or cliched/bland characterization.

basically, just poke around for a game that seems to have a friendly atmosphere that accepts OCs and go for it. focus on finding a setting that interests you, and maybe aim for a smaller game if you're really worried about getting play with an OC - big games might offer more possibilities for CR, but it's also easier to get overlooked imo, while small games tend to foster CR easier since everyone knows they don't have as many options and can't be super picky about who they're tagging.

just look around at the games on offer, find one or two that seem interesting to you and have a few OCs already on the roster, and app in. be prepared to tag out a lot your first few months, and to generally have to put in a decent amount of work to establish CR, because you won't have any name recognition to draw people in. once you get some solid CR, there will be more back and forth.

if your oc has a pb who is pretty, white and male, you'll probably fare better than some canon characters.

hey anon! as someone who plays more ocs than canon characters these days, most of the advice above is pretty good

one thing i can add is to give test drive memes a shot! you can check out the tdm thread on this post to see ones that are open at the moment. since you're playing an oc, the best bet is to tag out rather than doing your own top-level, but it'll help you get a good feel for the game.

someone mentioned how important it is to put in the effort with plotting so i'd also say get a plurk if you don't have one already, cr memes & plot with me memes go around on plurk occasionally and are super useful for oc players. plus building ooc friendships means people are more likely to tag you.

i'm currently in [community profile] overjoyed_ooc right now and everyone has been super welcoming and willing to plot with my oc. it's sci-fi with memloss/au aspects and we have about 40 characters. i can't really speak for any other games since i'm not in them, but if you have any general questions i'd be happy to answer them!
