  1. Realm of Fantasia

  2. I got a serious jonesing for doing my own take on the genre. Tonally this will be played pretty straight, but that's not to say it won't tongue in cheek or be playing with certain elements. So definitely expect some number of the various well worn cliches and tropes like crystal macguffins, ancient evils, the overworld traversing airship earned in the penultimate stage of the game, etc to appear. Setting wise I have not yet seriously started writing much definite details but due to the nature of the game it's something could madlib up and get a bunch of things right. That being said it's a big world with a bunch of different areas with diverse and obligatory biomes to visit. Tech-wise it is more advanced the sort of usual vaguely medieval setting with fantastical elements and some anachronisms, but it's not gonna be like Final Fantasy XV where it's a contemporary setting but with monsters and weird looking modern technology. Tech levels will be sort of inconsistent for both the sake of whimsy and or because rule of cool much like in a handful of games where they do that. In terms of races, you got humans but I'm also thinking of things that scale from humanoid to non-human critters. It'll mostly be cosmetic save for maybe a few mandatory abilities and weaknesses exclusive to the races. -I was thinking you got cat people who are like mithra in term of human to animal ration and they can interbreed with humans producing what looks like a person with animal ears. Alternatively it can be various ethnic groups of different animals for the race. -An aquatic race based of salamanders who make rad underwater cities and are skilled in making artifical lakes for their settlements and some magic engineering of plants . -Feathered raptors that are are fluffy, athletic, and clever and probably either nomads or forest dwellers. -A cute mascot type race of hovering jellyfish based off the healslime from dragon quest. --- For the game rules I'm going to be using the new edition of OVA which came out a while ago, because it's easy to read and set-up as well as the fact that it allows you to make your own special moves/spells which reminds of the artes from the Tales series which is cool and fun. For character generation we're using a point buy method which I'll outline along with some houserules. You get 16 points and an extra 4 from hindrances which should give enough to make your character concept but still have room to grow, this is subject to change if it proves a bit underpowered. Please note that the hindrances go sharply up in severity also you may take extra for the roleplay aspect but you don't get extra points. Feel free to spitball character ideas to me, I'm more than willing to help you out on your character both mechanically and also in terms of fitting in the with setting. So like if you had a concept for like some sort of martial artist we could work together on defining finer details like the school's location, what rivals it has, the people who are part of it. Anyway here's the char gen rules: Abilities cost 1 point per rank except knowledge which is half a point You have a softcap of 3, although I am willing to make exceptions for certain things You get three special moves and you can learn more & improve existing moves later Magic, arcane and Magic, witchcraft are rolled into one ability simply known as magic.
  3. Hello, I’m Ultraman, and I’m looking for partners to aid in the development, or enactment of my roleplay idea. I’m using this thread to see if anyone’s interested. I’ll edit my ideas, and add/replace some concepts of this first post, whenever I develop new ideas for this roleplay. Roleplay Idea: JRPG Roleplay Genre: Anime, Freeform Battle System: Based around Stats, rather than Dice. (Needs Development/Think Pokemon). Turn based, so 1 skill per post; a skill may include multiple actions, so a skill can be either 1 action, or a combo. (Baten Kaitos/Sands of Destruction) World Map/Local Map: The world map is used for long distance travel that takes days+, while the local map is used for short distance travel that may take a few hours, or less. Any Character: Feel free to make up any character, there are no defined races. Robotic, Magical Girl, Beastman, Demon, anything goes. Character-Driven: Various subplots related to our characters’ will progress the plot. However, there’ll be a main plot, if we want to take a break from character related stuff. Character-driven events/subplots will make the bulk of our roleplay. Potential Main Plot Ideas: Collect X amt. of the MacGuffin, Evil Empire, Trapped in a Fantasy World, Exploration, (Needs Development) Consistent Plot: 2-5 characters embark on a journey together for one common reason. (Think Final Fantasy/Bravely Series/Baten Kaitos/Skies of Arcadia/Radiant Historia). Side Characters/Mobs: The duty of controlling side characters/mobs is voluntary, or randomized depending on what everyone agrees on. Requirements: 4+ Lines of detail (No Dialogue) per post based on the size 14 font. Any amount of dialogue works. Feel free to PM me, or leave a post in the thread. There’s a soft cap of 5 players for this roleplay, but I may allow more. I only need one partner in order to start up this roleplay, but more partners are always welcomed! Everything I've listed is subject to change, and I'm willing to cooperate with anyone in order to develop the roleplay, so it's fun for us all.

    Fans of traditional JRPGs ahoy! Square Enix has come up with yet another offering, this time a throwback to the more traditional style of JRPGs - specifically Chrono Trigger (a personal favourite of mine). That said, the game itself is clearly inspired by the latter game, with the three-man party and also the what-appears-to-be dual techs (screenshot in particular referenced that X slash skill that Frog and Crono used to be able to do)... Needless to say, I'm quite sold since I did like Chrono Trigger immensely and this one claims to be inspired by that. Story-wise, what little description there is about that just screams Final Fantasy X. The following is the official description: Isn't it? Setsuna = Yuna. Island = Besaid Island. Fiend = Sin. Powers of enchantment = Summoning. Safeguards = Guardians. Ceremony of sacrifice = Final Summoning. Jeez. ... It tempers my interest, I must confess. It would annoy me to no end if it does end up being too similar to FFX's story. Not that I dislike FFX's story though; it's just that in these sort of games, one of the main attractions for me is the story and if its too similar, then it just breaks the immersion for me (at least, that's my personal take). Regardless, if it truly is inspired by Chrono Trigger, I'm definitely looking forward to the NG+, the multiple endings and the numerous side quests. All in all, it's something interesting, isn't it?
  5. Put simply, this is a light hearted JRPG-inspired RP in a similar vein as games like Etrian Odyssey, and animes like Overlord, Log Horizon, and the (highly divisive) Sword Art Online. Unlike the JRPG trope though, there likely won't be two nations at war nor would the world be facing a turbulent period with monsters on the rise. Instead, the opposite is likely true with the world having survived radical changes, and settling into a more peaceful era. Even so, there are still crises and dangers in the form of human ambitions, and ancient relics of bygone eras disrupting the present peace. [Tabs] [Tab=Creation myth] Long ago, two denizens of heaven fell in love and decided to marry. On the wedding day, the groom sent his messenger ahead with the dowry, a magic treasure box containing many precious gems and jewelry painstakingly collected from every corner of the evening sky. But on his way to the bride’s palace, the messenger was buffeted by a flock of northward geese, and dropped the treasure chest, which fell through the clouds into the sea. The box’s contents spilled out, and formed the first land, plants, peoples, and living things of the earth. At the wedding, the groom apologized sincerely to his bride for losing her dowry, but the bride led him to a place where they could peer at the world forming beneath the clouds, and said. “You've already given me the best dowry a person could've desired.” [/Tab] [Tab=World] World planning goes here.

[accordion=bcenter|125] {slide=Scenario 1|center} The road you’re on is a straight and easy one, gently rising and falling over the hills spaced some sixty feet apart as if to avoid tiring the traveller while keeping hidden what’s beyond the next hill so as to gather anticipation with each approaching step. Journeying on it has been almost a pleasure in itself. A town sits close by, but your thoughts tend to the town beyond where you have business to take care of. It wouldn’t hurt to stay a night though where there’s food and comfort, and most importantly, people. As you ascend the top of the next hill, you see a young girl sitting next to the road. Her attire shows that she’s most likely from the town nearby, and her eyes reveal that she’s been waiting for you to pass. {/slide} {slide=Scenario 2|center}Content{/slide} [/accordion] [/Tab] [/Tabs]
  6. Hi. I'm looking for a light (JRPG-inspired) fantasy adventure to in a similar vein to the game Etrian Odyssey, the animes Overlord, Log Horizon, or (the highly divisive) Sword Art Online (without the virtual game elements), but the rps I checked out on here aren't quite what I'm looking for, which is why I decided to post this to see if anyone would be interested in creating a fantasy world together. I know it's a lot of work to create settings and plots and to run a rp so it'll doubtless be something that'll expand over time as our characters move to or learn about new locations. I'll provide more details below, and hopefully plan locations and plots with other people. If anyone's interested, please feel free to join this thread, and suggest ideas.

    Hi. This is a fantasy adventure rp currently in test run status. The point of this thread is to introduce the rp's game system before players enter fully into the world of the rp. Here, we can also test various systems, such as travel, before implementing them into the rp. Click here for the Interest Check thread.. Welcome to the town of Proto-Strongmill. Mir: Proto-Strongmill? That's right. This is the prototype of the starting town that'll be used in the rp. Before you stands a single three-story mill, made of bricks, and circular in design, It has a red roof, and four lengthy rectangular blades made of fabric stretched over wooden crosses in threes turn gently in the breeze. Here, have a look at the attachment to get a picture in your head. Because this is a prototype and the rest of the town hasn't been played, cardboard cutouts stand in for the other buildings you see in the picture. Good thing there's only a gentle breeze. Otherwise, all these cutouts will just fall over. Mir: Pretty low budget, huh. Since the mill is the only real building. Why don't you explore it? As you round the side of the mill though to check if it's real, you hear a slightly muffled but audible cry, "Shoot! I'm late! I'm so late!" A second later, someone slams into you, knocking both of you over. "Are you oka-" The words freeze in your mouth. Lying on his hands and rear in front of you is a brawny man wearing a red bandana, a green sleeveless shirt, brown trousers, and black shoes. "Ahhh!" The man lets out a cry of agony. "Watch where you're going! Look at what you did to my breakfast" You eyes travel to the ground. Sure enough, at the man's feet is a slice of golden toast. Mir: There's something wrong with this scene. The man gets to his feet, and cracks his knuckles. "That's it. I'm in a bad mood this morning. Sorry, but my fists need to take this out on somebody." It looks like you won't be able to avoid this fight. I will now introduce the Combat system. Let's check you and your opponent's Ability Scores. In the real RP, you'll be able to distribute 24 points across 4 values: Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence, and Spirit. Here, let's make your character a standard one, and your opponent an average one. Standard Stats: 4, 6, 6, 8 Average Stats: 6, 6, 6, 6 Your Ability Scores determine your HP, MP, and Carrying Capacity. HP = [sTR] x 2 MP = [sP] x 2 Carrying Capacity = [sTR] + 3 So, that means. Your character [sTR 4] [DEX 6] [iNT 6] [sPI 8] HP: 8 MP: 16 Carrying Capacity: 7 Your opponent [sTR 6] [DEX 6] [iNT 6] [sPI 6] HP: 12 MP: 12 Carrying Capacity: 9 Normally, your opponent's information would be hidden to the player. In battle, whoever has the highest initiative goes first. Initiative is calculated by rolling 2 dices, one for DEX, and one for INT, then adding them together. Since your character has [DEX 6] and [iNT 6], that means you roll two 6 sided dice. [dice]13682[/dice] Ouch, that doesn't look good. Let's see what your opponent gets. [dice]13683[/dice] That means your opponent goes first then you then back to your opponent. Initiative is only calculated at the start of battle unless a player uses a skill. Let's start the battle. Your opponent takes a wide swing at you. Since he's fighting unarmed, accuracy is calculated by [DEX + STR], and the damage is calculated by [sTR] -2. First, let's roll Accuracy. [dice]13684[/dice] 6, 6! That's a Critical Hit! A Critical Hit happens when you roll the highest number for both die. When you score a Critical Hit when rolling Accuracy, you double the number of dice you normally roll for Damage. So, in this case, 2 [sTR 6] die. Now, let's roll Damage with the modifier set to -2 cause of fighting unarmed, [dice]13686[/dice] That means the attack does 7 Damage. If your character were wearing armour, he/she would be able to reduce the Damage by their Defense Points (This applies only to Physical Damage). So after taking damage, where does that leave us? HP: 8 - 7 = 1. Not good! This is turning out quite unexpectedly for a test battle. Time for some intervention. A potion appears in your hand. Using the potion, you restore 8HP. A small item like a potion that fits in the palm of your head takes up 1 Carrying Capacity. Using an item takes up a turn so it's your opponent's turn again. Accuracy Check [dice]13688[/dice] Your opponent's Accuracy Check is higher than your Initiative, which means his attack connects. (Initiative also determines your dodge chance.) Damage Check: Rolling only 1 die this time, and -2 for unarmed combat. [dice]13685[/dice] You take 3 damage. Alright, it's time to counterattack. A light blade appears in your hand. The Accuracy and Damage for a light blade is calculated like so. Accuracy: [Dex + INT] + 1 Damage: [iNT] - 1 Accuracy Check [dice]13690[/dice] Your Accuracy is higher than his Initiative so your attack hits. Damage Check: [dice]13691[/dice] With [iNT 8], you roll an 8 sided die, -1 for a light blade. You swing your sword, catching your opponent in the shoulder, dealing 5 damage to your opponent. His HP falls to 7. And that's it! Pretty simple, right? Next time, we'll talk about using Objects in the environment to give you an advantage in battle. But I'm hoping to get a volunteer for that. If you're interested, lemme know! <p><a href="<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_2015_10/Strongmill.jpg.5fa88be50bb00e7ca22243d4f9865bef.jpg" class="ipsAttachLink ipsAttachLink_image"><img data-fileid="78537" src="<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_2015_10/Strongmill.jpg.5fa88be50bb00e7ca22243d4f9865bef.jpg" class="ipsImage ipsImage_thumbnailed" alt=""></a></p>
