Adding characters to RP


Recommended Posts

hmm,

adventure RPing sounds interesting, but there has to be an element to

it that allows for interest, which is usually provided by conflict, or

fighting.

What about the idea for a single sharecter RP, where each person only

controls a single charecter, or a group of people, rather than a whole

nation and/or army. i'm not sure what kind of form this would take, but

it's an idea

Take a look at Nasi, they do it a lot. Focusing on single characters/small groups is fine and allows players to developed a lot of the characters they reference in their nation rps. You can still reference regional events as well.

I don't quite get what you're saying. Can you explain?

What I mean is that we could have an RP which is based more on individuals doings things, kind of like the ones there are on the NationStates forums. Akiiryu knows what I mean, and also knows more about it than I do.

@ Dragonryders: That would be much better. Good job!

 

@ Tagmatium: Alright, I will tal to Akiiryu about it. Unless he would like to explain it here, so everyone knows what you're talking about.

Basically, it is as Tag has explained it. Play individual people or groups with in the "Europa Universe". Some of us already do it to some extent in our RPs (the Historical rp has some great examples). I have a few set families/characters I like to develop (the Barons of the Rothric Clan) and others who make appearances (the Knight N'Jorth, the priest Thaneath - both of whom are hencemen of the current T'Rothric). In my case I pretty much focus down from the regional to the individual (although regional events are still important). None of my characters are superheroes (although Stag Kinights are genetically enhanced to be a little bit better than the average human in speed and strengthen and such [THEY ARE NOT JEDIS] I got a greenlight for this when i join Europa - I am willing to discuss oobjections).

 

Develop your characters as people...

Well, I have some characters of my own and have used them in RP before.

  • Empress Orioni (Empress, duh)
  • Prince Toren (brother of)
  • Dr. Chandra Pristo, Chairlady of the Council (sort of PM, has the brains)
  • General Bruiser (supreme commander of the army)
Besides those there a a few organisations as well:
  • Orioni Governmental Council (rules the land and colonies)
  • O.N.A. (Orioni News Agency)
Etc. But these things are already available on my page at NS Wiki.

I have a few myself:

Phil IV(dead)

Phil V(very much alive)

Prince Rupert SartDu(Phil V's brother, SartDu is the name of my roayal family)

 

hmm... i'm sure there were a few more, but as I tend to send Prince Rupert to all international occasions(the brothers hate each other, so Phil is constantly sending Rupert away all over the place), it is difficult to rememebr sometimes.

 

 

 

 

looking at the new map, I like the look of the un-labeled 'wilderness' to the East of the region, That would maybe be a good place to set one of those ''adventure'' RP's people have been talking about?

 

"No-one has been there in years, sattilite pictures show only deserted wastland, but what will our four intrepid adventurers find..."

 

somthing like that would make it interesting, even if they're modern day adventurers, tackling unknown troubles to do somthing or another... just bouncinig ideas...

This sounds like a very interesting idea. If we're going on the exploration thing, then Admiral Fender, formally commander of the 2nd Grand Fleet, will be despatched with a few soldiers to claim some land for Karthenia.

 

The other characters i have :

 

Ling Cao- Supreme Commander

 

Frosty- Ling's rival, a bit of a Nazi

 

Nocturne- Head of the Intelligence Ministry

 

Gaius Reman Valiani- you all know what he's like

Heh, I've had quite a few characters I've used in the RPs here. Most of which are dead now, a pity.

 

I think the only surviving ones are:

 

Foreign Affairs Minister Taren (in a coma)

 

Field Agent Robert Corwin (missing in the chaos)

 

Admiral Folshe

 

Colonel Delport
