  1. Wow, that is very well done!
  2. Is there source material for FF 5e? Cause if there is, I would love to take a look at it! Also, I'm an avid tabletop player here, so count me interested.
  3. Agree with the comment about Mateus, there is rp all over the place. Same with Balmung. But beyond that, I like to look at people's glams and their search info. See if there is anything there that catches my eye, and potentially compliment it. Or make an attempt of a joke about their search info, if they have something humorous there. Then if that goes well, I make the offer of rp. Doesn't always work, but I figure that I can at least put out the effort to find rp.
  4. So, not to dismiss anything you have said, not in the slightest. I just wish to point out that being ignored is not always a malicious thing. Sometimes chat spam happens, especially if the person is in a FC or a couple of LS's. It can happen, and people miss posts all the time. Second, location might be a factor here. Certain places in game are known for certain rp, and your character might be getting lumped into a stereotype. But, sometimes people might not want to rp with a male character. That is just how life goes. I am not saying it is fair, or even right, but at the same time? Nobody is owed rp, everyone can rp with who they want, how they want, and when they want. Like Kazex said, just have to keep trying.
  5. Replace D&D with things like Shadowrun and White Wolf....and yeah, that's me. Toss in a mild obsession with fantasy books when I was younger, and there you go. Though I completely kept my table-top rpg habit. Currently playing GURPS, Honor + Intrigue, and Savage RIFTS.
  6. Thank you for the replies and good leads! Will start looking into them soon, and hopefully something good will come of it! As for what we are looking for, a healthy mix of adventure and slice of life would be nice. Criminal is not something we are looking for, though we are perfectly fine with morally grey areas.
  7. Hello there! So yes, my friend and I are currently in the search for a new FC. We both are heavy rp’ers, with a preference towards paragraph posting. Though of course, we modify this based on the circumstances! Wouldn’t want to overwhelm anyone, or make their posts go unseen by accident. As for what we are looking for, roleplaying. I would say this is first and foremost. Story-lines, events, every day contact. These are the things that I personally wish, and know my friend would as well. A place that is inclusive to people, and has a process in place to incorporate new people. A FC house would be nice of course, but it is not 100% necessary. My character is a lady who in the past has studied Conjury. Worked for a while as a wandering healer, before finding herself working for a tea house. Took up a role as quartermaster there, making certain that the place had all the proper supplies and the like. But unfortunately, paperwork quickly grows boring. And boring turns to a lack of satisfaction in job and ultimately life. So now, she has packed her things and is now looking once again for a place to call her own. Fortunately this time with a person at her side, but still trying to find her way and place in the world. So, I know this post is rather short, but we are looking! So if you have any questions, comments, etc etc, please feel free to let me know! I will be certain to check the post here from time to time,but PM’s are the easiest way to get up with me. Thank you very much for reading!
  8. Planning. Lots and lots of planning. Open OOC communication, and more planning.
  9. Had this one stuck in my head lately.
  10. Hello there! First of all, welcome to the game and to the RPC! You will find that folks here are actually rather friendly overall. And by posting the fact that you have had some issues in finding rp? Expect to have more than a few offers to fix that problem. I would suggest looking into the Events listings here, as there are bound to be some for the holidays. In addition, there are some long standing ones, such as Grindstone (I think that is the name? I always forget). Also, look into visiting the Quicksand in Ul'dah. It is hit or miss, but that is just the nature of tavern rp as a whole. Concerning the clique feeling, I get you. It can be really hard at times, but you are not the only one to be having the issue. I can just say to keep your chin up, and power through. You have already made a big step in finding a good FC, so I am certain things will start to line up for you. Oh! Also, check to see if there are any LS's that are rp orientated. Might be another good place to look.
  11. While perhaps not as well known as say Gygax, Arneson, or many of the others, Dever was a huge influence on gaming and fantasy. At least to me, he was. Grew up with the books, and always enjoyed what he put into his world. Damn, 2016 has been rough as hell. http://www.guardian-series.co.uk/news/14937849.Legendary_fantasy_author_Joe_Dever_dies/
  12. Ooooh, thank you for doing this once again! In order of interest: 1. Mog station outfit 2. Fenrir pup 3. Aquarium Thank you once again, it has been awesome to see all the items over the months.
  13. Violet has a couple of weaknesses that she tries her best to avoid. But when nobody is looking? Well, keep that cake away. Or the pastry. It doesn't have to actually be sweet, but just anything baked, flaky, and carby. Carbs. Carbs are her utter weakness, and guilty pleasure.
  14. One is solicited, the other is not. You don't have to open up "Thancred at the Quicksand, Part XII" if you see it listed, but if you're RPing and he just shows up, you're forced to respond to it. I think that's probably the least defensible element. That's the element that is most likely to bother a person in the oc vs canon character imitation example. Being in the same place and not really having control of it. I'm speaking mostly (and broadly) about events, but those sorts of things can create some ugly continuity splinters. If half the people there are fine with Thancred turning up to get turnt up, and the other half aren't, how are they supposed to interact with one another? It's a messy, complicated mess, and the option to opt out always exists but isn't always deployed in a smooth manner. Pretty much this. That, and if they show up to an event... and so does another Thancred (which I have seen before, multiple NPCs showing up) who do we treat as the 'real' Thancred? There's also the issue of continuity. One Thancred does something, and someone else's Thancred does something else. Do we associate the actions to both Thancreds? Do we treat it as a one-shot, and it's not something that sticks? If so, that would go against quite a few roleplayers 'rules', like retconning something like that as never happening. I'm more ok with minor npcs than characters like the Scions etc. Not to derail too much here, but I now really want to see some sort of Monty Python -esque situation where two people playing major lore NPC's show up and end up in a "No, YOU are the impostor!" situation. Actually. No. Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck situation! "You are the impostor!" "No you are!" "No you!" "Yes I am the impostor!" "No I am the impostor!"
  15. Caspar, I stand fully by what I said. It is what I have experienced, and how I both view the subject matter and how I choose to play. Kinda sorry not sorry that it seems to have bothered you so much? But in the end, yeah. After bad experiences with creeps, I tend to take a: "Show me you are different, and I will happily rp with you" viewpoint. Maybe that is not the nicest way to play, but it saves me drama in the game. Beyond that, I offered what I thought was actually a decent solution. You have to show that you are different, when public opinion and thought says things are of a specific way. It sucks, but that is just life. However this is the last I am going to post here. It is getting towards the more argumentative side of discussion, at least in my eyes. So if you would like to continue, feel free to send a PM. Otherwise, I am not going to clog up a person's thread.
