Hello everyone, I'm Misaki and I'll be taking over as the new admin and watcher of the debate board!

I deleted a lot of the older and unnecessary threads, and I've decided to add more information, rules, and guidelines for this board!

1. I would really appreciate it if dirty material was kept on the other boards, so please do not post anything pornographic, or anything depicting gore.

2. Debate isn't all about being completely serious. Serious topics and discussions are well appreciated, and I hope everyone can determine when it's appropriate not to be.

Debate can also be fun, so I don't mind if we have a few silly threads if it means everyone enjoys the topic. But make sure it's at least appropriate.

3: As well as making sure all topics are appropriate, please keep them positive and friendly as well. I really don't like seeing people fight, and everyone should be as civil as possible.

Right so I need a place to write down all my ideas relating to this idea/plot thing I've had kicking around my head since forever. So I figured I'd put it here and anyone could leave feedback/additions to this thing.

I feel that aside of whats outlined below, the Blame lore is mallable enough for me to make some adjustments and take creative liberties with the setting as to better intergrate it with the RP.

Mood
the general mood I want to create is oppressive, mysterious, cyberpunk, bizarre. for that I will be using pics from artists like Nihei himself, HR Giger, Beksinski and some IRL stuff that I find.

Outline
In the world of Blame there is a ever expanding dyson sphere called The City. Maintained and forever expanded by machines called The Builders, the City is basically an endless collection of strange corridors and rooms.

Humanity in this world still exists, but its scattered within the vast confines of The City and hunted by the system governing it. The hows and why of that are rumors and legends, but its said that a lone human is looking for people with the potential to reprogram the system and give mankind mastery of The City. This part is just fluff meant for worldbuilding, it won't be tackled in the event itself since its the plot of Blame and redoing a manga in the rp seems a little pointless.

An idea that popped up for pics gathering, namely using EYE Divine Cybermancy.

Which then transformed into jamming some elements from that into the City. I always enjoy massive crossovers.

Let's talk about making heroes of legend beat each other up for a shitty wish granting device that doesn't work. Although perhaps we should save this for after the Tournament, but who cares.

So here's the thing, probably gonna require a lot of actual plotting so people don't get salty when people inevitably die.

Probably going to need to be off Aurora-planet for ease and lack of super duper one shots.

Someone should probably GM this with an extra Servant or being not part of the usual line up actually fucking with things like Avengers or a Beast or some shit like that.

Thoughts on this, could even play into other plots already involving Servants or Galactic stuff. After all a "wish granting device" could rake in a lot of interest!

This is probably way worse put together as a thoughtful post but I am bad at this so here we are, let's hear the opinions.

So I need a master for Cu Alter. That's the only thing. All of my servants are tied to the following.

Arturia Pendragon (Saber) - Luviagelita Edelfelt
Artoria Pendragon (Lancer) - Lina Inverse
Cu Chulainn (Lancer) - Elin (The Mother of his kid)
Altera/Attila The Hun (Saber) - Gwen the titty mage

I guess for ease I'll list down my Servants to show who all might be throwing down here

Arthur Pendragon (Saber)- Shirou Emiya
St. George (Rider)- Vyse
Lancelot (BERSERKER?!)- Tes
Enkidu (Lancer)- doge
Xuanzang/Sanzou (Caster)- I guess slut Wukong/Goku

People who would be interested in the prospect of this war that I can offer as Masters:
Accord, Merlin (NnT), Arche, Marisa, Saphrita (one of those villain Durgans), and Sumirenko

I'm gonna drop these two fuckers in with a handicap: They don't get to choose their Servants.

Akira Kurusu (Master): Literally opened the door when he got home and woke up here, the asshole. Has no idea what happened. Currently unable to defend himself with his Phantom Thief power.

Arsene (Servant, Assassin): Comes from Akira to protect him. Is surprised that he's got an actual form somewhat now and stays near his side in devotion. Fancies gloating before attacking if not discovered. Jack of all trades, but is a bit of a glass cannon.

Hibiki Kuze (Master): Was watching TBFP compilations until he fell asleep. Woke up here and blinked. Not much has changed as he's still watching TBFP. Kind of just willing to go with everything and woke up next to Akira.

Featuring Alice from the SMT Series (Servant, Caster): Alice woke up next to Hibiki and was abot to kill Akira before seeing that Hibiki wasn't caring. She's watching TBFP along with him and are currently waiting things out until a sense of direction is formed between the 4.

Luigi brings up a good point:

Do we want nonstandard servants, or ONLY people from the Type Moon verse?

Obviously who the Masters are doesn't matter in the least, but still.

Also I can offer:

Brendan, Master of Elizabeth Bathory
Varnock, Master of EMIYA
Bridgette, Master of Nursery Rhyme

However, I am content using Varn as a mediating position or not at all due to his power level. If the flat rule takes affect I would greatly enjoy using all of them.

I am ALSO interested in playing a servant, but am as of yet undecided on which and will take suggestions if anyone has any.

I don't think we NEED them, but for the sake of letting those people with type-moon characters have something to do, they should be more than welcome to throw down and get involved.

Unless we're asking about Servants. I wasn't trying to be anything besides the hype man on this, but if you can loophole or explain it I guess you could have non standard Servants like Luigi's doing with the SMT guys???

(Also I'm adding an extra available Master in the form of this Monster Boy OC)

Thought I'd give this a try, see where it goes.
Worst that happens is nothing is what I told myself, so let's give it a shot!

I've been rping on here for a long time, though been getting more and more busy these days, there's one thing that never seems to change.
The number of people that want to rp with me, and sometimes gets disappointed when I can't.
I've come to realize over time I can't be everywhere at once and my attention can be divided only so many ways lately, and with that I've come to understand that this is the same case with others.
Because of that, I can't expect to try and pair people up quite so easily, because they already have a good group of friends or circle in which they enjoy posting to.
Now, I ain't saying that to point fingers either.
We have had quite a few threads lately that raise awareness, at least in the fact that there are people who try to get stuff going, and fail to do so, or are alone around here but would like to post more.
So that up there is the general intro to the thread.

So, I wanted to try a bit of a general experiment, see if it works.

Uhm, lets see. These days I mostly post with Sammy and TC. Mari on occasional along with Waffle. Used to post a lot with Timon too.

The kind of stuff I like is pretty varied. Though I love action and fighting and grimdark stuff. Also love dramatic/tragedy kind of stories. I prefer not posting lewdness unless there's no other choice. Of course batshit crazy like some of my asuka sessions are always fun~

I have big ideas and big storylines I wouldn't mind doing, except that I have absolutely no idea how to get started with them and who to talk to to get them started.

Nowadays I mostly post with Sammy or Sci, with the odd bits from everyone involved in the pokemon business.

What do I like? Well, there is the obvious lewd that has gone on, and pokemon related stuff. I'm up for just about anything that could lead to something else, rather avoid just spot situations that are never mentioned again and are purely for the sake of that. I do want to do more adventure or actiony stuff.

I'd like to use Fou-lu in Chedo more if anyone has a character they want to take a trip out of the usual high-tech setting for a while, and of course deal with a trainer actually going through the challenges. If you want to do action stuff, I do sell.

When am I around? Well being GMT (Thus why Karen is there) it is a pain in the ass for some I know but if informed ahead of time of intended posting, I can try to arrange a time I'm not working the following day and stay up a while.

I prefer more serious plots, if I can help it. I like it when things just sort of come together, and people get to develop at their own pace.

Lately, I post with Sci and Kana the most, sometimes even Mari and Bunz.

I don't mind the lewd things, and hell I tend to just go along with whatever falls in my lap, but I also prefer to build up other kinds of plots and characters. I had wanted to do more with the island plot, however time restraints plus the timeskip kind of put a hole in that ship so to speak... but I did manage to eek out a bit of cool developments before we took off into the future with the help of Kana, Mari, and Bunz!

I often try to think of ideas for characters that either pique my interest the most, or characters I feel like I can do more with given the right opportunities, like Erica (who has been more or less stuck in Development Hell for about 18 months.)
I like mystery, intrigue, action and suspense. And sometimes nakedness. I also like when my characters become servants to other characters too, and not only in the lewd way! That's just how I do.

I enjoy a lot of things, from sexual encounters to battles, survival and adventure to slice of life scenes.

I enjoy development with any of those things to reach no heights with my characters but lately I've been more off from Roleplaying for a while and I'm rather sad about it. I guess I don't do much fun things as I use to and I barely post to anyone now anymore so I can't even list people who I post with at all.

I said I'd do this some time ago, so lets get to it shall we?

I don't particularly post with anyone, save for Mari and Jett, being the only ones whom request any of my boring characters anyhow.

As for preferences I just do about anything. Adventure posting, small skirmishing, even hosting old attacks on towns for small things. Also going for slice of life, and lewd. Albeit if I do do it, it takes a lot for my characters to go down that path. Coercing things like that, or development that feels too forced or lackluster bother the crap out of me. Unless of course you know how to play out their flagged weaknesses. Of course that also applies simply just getting to know or close to them as well.

Anyhow, still mostly open to anything with the problem of time restraints and so on.

I know I'm not much liked anymore, but I'll put my two cents here for anyone who'll listen.

To start with my main point, I want to start posting again. What happened with me is that the usual people I used to post with (or had plots with) either stopped showing up here entirely or have a tendency to go on hiatus at times. This... really hurt my drive to post at all for a long while. To me, it seemed that the "usual people" I would post with always ended up disappearing one after the other. Some due to online drama, other's IRL thinfs.

In terms of things I like to post, I'm open to pretty much anything. I did have a couple dungeons typed up that I still needed to post in another thread actually... (if that idea's still alive). I'd prefer if character interactions had some feel of character development, but it isn't always necessary.

For the things I usually do, I somehow having a strong inclination for doing small, cute slice-of-life thinfs. So if that's your cup of tea, hit me up.

In terms of "lewd" I'd prefer not to "masturbate in public" since I'm not much of an exhibitionist, but I'm pretty lenient when it comes to what is and is not defined as "lewd".

This is a nice thread, I'll toss my two cents in as well.

Though as a disclaimer I must say I am not fully returned, but should be around Mondays and Tuesdays for the foreseeable future, and randomly outside of that.

Well seeing as it's been a while I haven't done much posting, for obvious reasons, but the last people I was focused on were DS, Kana, Bunz, Mulk, Sou, and Sci, with randoms all strewn about from whenever I fished/answered fish. Or I think that was everyone at least... As I said, it's been a while.

As for what I prefer... Action, really. I like fights, adventures, mysteries to solve, stuff like that. It speaks to a part of me from when I first started RPing and that little section never went away. I have been trying to branch into some slice of life more recently, but I'm honestly just not very good at it. Not many characters suited to it, really. I'm also so tired of all the lewd stuff. It's just TOO prevalent in my eyes, without any development in a lot of cases, but maybe I'm just focusing on the bad too much and missing the forest for the trees. I'll probably flop back after a few days posting again either way.

Anyways, anyone who wants a session with me just has to ask, I'm on skype and all that jazz, so yeah.

I'm expecting some negative backlash for this thread; maybe I won't get anyone's attention with it at all, but I kind of feel like it's something that needs to be said.
Because there is a problem with it, and I'd like for the community to work on it.

Fishing is a staple tradition of the RP. It's part of the basic foundation and it's still used to this day to train new members whenever we get them.

So why is it then, that some people like myself, can fish dozens of times a week and be lucky if we make it through with even one or two sessions without having to bother people.

I've been told that some people have quit the RP because they can't get fishes answered. Some new people didn't last long and I don't remember who they were because they came and went like the wind. Recruitment went down the drain eventually, and our numbers have ceased growing as much as they used to.
Most people seem to prefer planned sessions and plots.

That's not a bad thing, and I'm not saying it is. But I am saying that neglecting Fishes, or not making many yourself, can add to the problem at hand. It's demoralizing and it tends only to fuel negative emotions which in turn affects peoples' attitudes.

Recruiting stopped because the only person who actively recruited people was Mari. She can't do everything on her own though.

Anyway, this thread isn't about me either. I appreciate the acknowledgment but my train of thought stems mostly from the idea of everyone being a community.

We all started somewhere, after all. And while it may be difficult, it's not at all impossible to engage others. I'm trying to be optimistic about it.

I've had this issue for a very long time. In fact, it's the leading cause as to why I next to never post anymore outside of other reasons being trying to get my life out of the shitter.

I used to post frequently, and I used to come to the site rather frequently back when fishes were a bigger thing mainly because it offered up far more opportunity to have things happen. and it didn't feel nearly as restricting and invasive. Now? There's nothing. You have to go bother someone else who may or may not be busy, or may not even want to post and ask them to post. In theory, it works because it guarantees the session will have thought. But in practice, it creates a feeling of exclusion to anyone not involved, or unable to get involved in that kind of thing.

I feel like there's no such thing as spontaneity anymore. Everything is staged, and everything is exclusive. That's not how normal interactions really work. Your characters aren't just gonna keep running into specific people all the time. As a community of people, they're GOING to run into random people, and that's just fine. It has the chance of creating something big, something that couldn't happen were it forced or planned. But now it's dissolved into a clique based RP once again, which doesn't look even the least bit welcoming to people just coming in, or fuck, even people who have been here for a while.

All I'm saying is, people have left or have given up. Hell, were it not for Jett, I would have given up too. But that's the issue we need to fix. We can't be exclusive about something as big as character interaction. It's just not fair.

I have little to add that wasn't already said.

All I can do is reinforce that only having a select few people answer fish really sucks. It's not like I don't like the people answering, but like was already said, I'm not here to just post at one or two people...

Man I can barely even make planned shit happen anymore, but I can only imagine that's because my list isn't appealing.

And TC, as one of the people that occasionally make half-assed fish, I've stopped putting extra effort in since they only get ignored anyways. Also I use a non-RP image to make sure it stands out enough to get seen. I know a lot of the times people have just straight missed the fact that a fish is out. Or so they say, at least. I'm not so sure I believe that anymore.

I've tried grabbing a few fish recently in an attempt to help, but I doubt I'll manage anything alone.

I try to throw out fishes, or reply to fishes, when I can but quite honestly, I don't have time nor...Stamina I suppose? To do nearly as many session per day as I used to. So inevitably I end up doing planned sessions with people that have been sitting on the backburner and by the time I have shit worked out, I just don't have enough room left for fishes.

It doesn't help that I get a lot of specific ideas for doing stuff in RP and when I do I tend to go to people about them as opposed to sitting and waiting to see if they will fish or whatever (Of course so very people actually fish anymore, so yeah).

I think there needs to be more communication between players and people going to others with ideas, because I will say here that it often feels like I'M always the one going to others with session and plot ideas. Which I know isn't entirely true, sometimes Mari and occasionally a few others comes to me with stuff, but it sure feels like it.

Yeah, I know that I haven't actually addressed the issue with fishes these days in this post, but I think what I said is a pretty big problem as well that is sort of related and could be talked about as well.

Now that a few days have passed and a couple more people have made some posts, I want to say this as well.

This thread's purpose wasn't to judge people or put anyone on the spotlight for their habits or preferences. Like I said before, I'm not condemning planned sessions at all.

Actually, I was hoping some specific people would see this and come to a realization: they're not the only ones who feel the way they do.

The solution to fixing the issue with fishing is that the people who all feel so insecure about it need to first realize that they aren't alone, no one hates them outright, and they have some common ground upon which to build with others.

That said, I have something in common with Varnock.
I used to put a lot of effort into fishing. It still makes me giddy if I get motivated to try and do a particular idea. And you can't always just go to other people with ideas because it's no different from fishing and sometimes you don't know if people will even pay attention or humor you; i've been outright ignored by some before.
Older members will remember the days when my fishes took up several posts just because of how much I went into detail on what was happening. Writing is fun, it's enjoyable. But eventually you reach a point where all of that effort and motivation is for naught. It feels downright horrible for a big idea to come to life in your mind, but go nowhere when you post it to the board.

Alright, I have had time to calm down and really look at my last post. It was an emotional trainwreck and a lot of points I attempted to make were covered in steaming monkey shit. Let's fix that somehow.

Fishing has been an interesting issue with myself and a lot of other people. There are moments where you can go almost a week of being "ignored" or fished over to suddenly have that one day where you're reeling in the whole school and motherfucking jaws himself with a fun session that couldn't have been planned out beforehand. Thinking about it, there's not much I can say that will overshaow what I say in my second paragraph, I feel like those points are more important to look at. No chimp out here.

In my original post, I seemed to be sending out the wrong vibe. I am against the whole "down with fishing" mentality because despite the problems that come with it on nights, it's a staple of this community. It's something we teach new players because how the hell are they going to get anything done if the main ice breaker is seen as an old tired tactic to some folks? If we only teach them to plan fishes, how will they interact properly with the community? I really don't want something that's second nature to me and a lot of old members fizzle out. That's all I know when it comes to starting something on the fly and I've been here for years. Great things have happened from fishing and answering them. Unforuntately for a while I got caught up in the negativty that surrounded it. For a while it was deemed a non issue at the time due to the difficulty of actually "fixing" something that didn't seem broken. Sometimes blame was placed on the player for not putting effort into their fishes. That used to get under my skin a lot because there wasn't really a set line on what counted as effort in some people's eyes. You give them too much to take in and people feel intimidated and indecisive. Give them too little and there's indecisiveness based on nothing to work with. People can also be pretty selective with certain other people and ideas, and most don't have the patience to wait as long when they throw it out. I'm guilty of this because I'm not as patient as I make out to be. When I fish, I see that as an escape from League and Overwatch because despite one of those games being tons of fun (gee I wonder which one), I don't want to play it all day because I felt like nobody wanted to post and interact with me. When the fish DOES get bitten in whatever time it took, either the player fishing will get demoralized by a "half-assed" reply after waiting a gorillion years and countless refishing to nab one, or stuck between a rock in a hard place from a bite that wasn't on a prefered scenario setting up an interaction that may or may not clash with a comfort zone. Nobody wants to piss off the other person which is completely understandable but sometimes that feels unavoidable.

I've recently started giving fishing more of a shot lately. Because I've been feeling like if I did, I could get more stuff going and seeing where that leads. However, most of the time I see others fish and have to practically beg in the chat for someone to give a damn. Personally I don't do that, I mention that I fished and then a reminder and that's basically it. Just once, and just be patient. But honestly I fish expecting it to go ignored. Because that's just what happens nowadays. More often than not. I've been really trying lately. Maybe it'll get better. And hopefully my attitude towards fishing in general improves too.

Right so, we have this problem here, see?
https://aurorachan.net/rpi/res/7329.html

This thread.

This is the map thread. A staple of the RP in that it's supposed to represent our setting. In some ways, it's the biggest representation of our setting and the physical changes made to it.

But it hasn't been updated in fucking forever. I'd love to do it myself, but I'm shit at anything that has to do with image editing. But I strongly believe we need to have a somewhat consistent map. Even if it's only updated monthly or something.

The problem is that every artist who's taken on the job of renovating the map seems to wander off eventually and the whole thread dies. We have several unfinished maps in that thread. There's the city/Town map that was being handled by Sticks. The world map that, as far as I know, was being handled by Noko/Navy. There's a concept map for the ADF/Replicant military base that was never full added to either of the other two maps.

I was actually thinking of this stuff for my military town thing as well. In the end I was just going to either draw it by hand or in MS Paint... but thats more out of necessity than anything else.

tl;dr: I'm a massive faggot for maps, world building potential, and possible plots because I write a lot. But in general, we need a map thread revamp. We can keep the old map thread around for references to the past, but I say we should have another map thread once we get this shit figured out.

Yeah, but we kinda NEED a revamp of the current town and continent map. The map for your military town can also be done in this idea for a well-needed map revamp.

Because all I can see, we only have 2 maps right now. Aurora and its continent, both of which are pretty dated. But there are many more places and maps that can be done. Examples being town maps, continent, and lastly world map.

I mean my thoughts are more or less based around this idea that a lot of sessions are held in more common areas because there's nothing to work with about others. Like, don't we have an entire other continent, an island in the sky, a school city, that city MB came up with, and a whole bunch of other places? But of course, I only look at the board every once in a while so I'm fucking oblivious to what locations are being used and I don't exactly look at other people's sessions.

Maps are very important for the idea of world building and potential plot advancement. Having more maps available and a wider range of info about areas may also spark interest in people to do something with said areas.

There are four maps.
There's an original "world map" which includes both of the original continents for the world.
It was later split in two and we used the left-half of it for Aurora, and the other half is mostly home to native creatures and dragons and shit.
Then we have the Aurora town map which probably hasn't been updated in well over a year and by now the city itself has grown from a town to an empire, so mapping that out might be a pain in the ass, but we might be able to work something out.

I have a military map that needs to be added to account for the Replicants and ADF barracks and HQs.

There have been many many many more locations in the RP.
Kilvas, The Dark Elves' mountain range, The Kingdom of Jin, Azteca, Mikoto City, a swamp village, Matoya (an elven city), then there's an Elven capital that was added later on and much deeper into the big foresty area. There's a traveling band of Centaurs to the south and TC's furry people set up camps everywhere.
We have an entire forest made of crystals, which is the point of origin for the Sky Island (it's a tiny continent in its own right at this point though).

Well for one thing, with Aurora town map at least, there could be one "zoomed out" perspective map that highlights various "Districts" and stuff along with major landmarks being marked on it, this would be the simplest way to give a general idea of the layout of the town and it's major landmarks.

The "District" maps would be, of course, the "zoomed in" perspective of the various districts that were highlighted. These maps would be more complex as they'd show the various buildings, shops, and services inside that little sector. Obviously more work would have to be put into these.

Now for the somewhat problem of there being many, many locations. My suggestion would be to make/work on maps based on priority/popularity/whatever. Locations such as the Aurora Town Map and the continent would have much more attention put into keeping those updated. Lesser used areas would have their maps worked on less often, but can be moved up on the priority list based on request or any drastic changes done to them.

Of course, we can also choose to not even provide maps for areas a good amount of people don't even use normally or even rarely. These locations can still be marked on the continent/map/whatever as long as they're still around and weren't nuked off the face of the planet or something. Maps for said areas can be made if enough people would find them relevant or if its map would become important for some reason.

The Mountain Fortess, Ribbon Camp, the former Angel city and the current demon kingdom are also locations I need to think about adding.

Why support these rather than use GIMP? It's not like it's exotic by now.

I've never personally used it and it reminds me of large bald muscular bound men in leather suits.

Howdy folks! I'm your friendly neighborhood Varnock here to ask about interest in a Pokemon Tournament held within Aurora. With the recent spike of trainers and interest in pokemon, I figured it might be fun to see if anyone wanted to test their skills/teambuilding/writing against other people in a battle of awesome.

Of course I can't set something like this up without people to participate -not to mention I'd like ideas/suggestions as well- so please pitch in any thoughts or just say hey if you have people that would join up.

As a side note this will be run by the Aurora branch of Rainy Sky and there WILL be swell prizes should it actually happen.

THIS POST WILL BE EDITED TO SHOW RULES
Rules:

No Legendary Pokemon. Sorry folks, they just aren't fair.

Three pokemon a battle. More makes it drag on too long, trust me on this from experience. If you don't have three due to some of them being legendary, then TR will supply rentals using a random pokemon generator and I'll personally make them as good as I possible can if the person doesn't want to make their own movesets.

Oh, while working on Yvette's team, something inside it came up and I was wondering how multi-hit moves like Double Slap, Bullet Seed, Shell Cannon, etc, are handled. Maybe I missed it but I didn't see anything on them when I went back over the thread.

Righto, so to sum it up...Protect moves can be used to negate your opponent's attack but counts towards your turn like any other move, and have a three turn cooldown. Does that sound about right?

>>6688
Hm, multihit moves...Maybe we could just do a single attack roll then a 1dX roll for how many times it actually strikes.

>> No.6690   [Delete]   [Edit]

>>6689
Exactly!

>>6688
A quick 1d5 (Or whatever amount is required)as kana suggests should do perfectly.

NOW THEN! Seeing as we've exhausted just about everything I can think of mechanics wise I'm going to go make the RPi thread. LOOK FORWARD TO IT.

>> No.6691   [Delete]   [Edit]

Alright, the Signup thread can be found here:
https://aurorachan.net/rpi/res/12097.html

I'm now looking for up to three people interested in being overseers for the moves and also taking suggestions for prizes.

So far I'm thinking a Key Stone and Mega Stone, a shiny pokemon, and maybe a set of TMs for potential prizes. Thoughts?

Those prizes sound pretty good to me. Maybe have the TMs be special versions that contain Tutor and/or Egg moves.

>> No.6693   [Delete]   [Edit]

I'll probably let anyone that placed keep any loaners they used too. More incentive that way.
