Suggestion Official RpNation Suggestions for Sub-Genres, Dice Systems & Tags

iseelight

Crowbar Swinger
Suggestion Type: Filter Option
Comments: I don't know if this has been suggested, but it would be awesome if there was a way to exclude tags and sub-genres in a search. For example, if I wanted to find action roleplays but didn't want to wade through all the school settings or k-pop rp.
 

CaptainRustbolt21

The Rusty One
Suggestion Type: Tag
Name of Sub-Genre/Tag/Dice Systems: Solarpunk
Comments: I think that, when it comes to the "punk" genres, they sound a bit too gritty and grim. I want a type of genre that appeals to the song of hope within our hearts. A genre that points to a sci-fi roleplay that uses green and natural energy for a happier and healthier lifestyle instead of the grim steampunk and cyberpunk that appeals more to crime from desperation and polluting technology that shows a feeling of hopelessness.

Suggestion Type: Tag
Name of Tag: Miraculous Ladybug
Comments: I’ve been seeing a lot of tags for fandoms and unfortunately one of my favorites wasn’t in there. The fandom is pretty popular, and there’s a few roleplays and interest checks with it on the site.
 

MagiCatz

Bone-stealing Witch
Suggestion for a Sub-Genre; Video Games
Kinda peculiar that we've got certain video games listed (like Pokemon) but not the actual platform itself...
 

Crayons

Iconoclast
Suggestion Type: Tag
Name of Sub-Genre/Tag/Dice Systems: Intrigue

Suggestion Type: Tag
Name of Sub-Genre/Tag/Dice Systems: Politics

So many RPs are about politics or court intrigue, I think we need a tag.

Suggestion Type: Tag
Name of Sub-Genre/Tag/Dice Systems: Japan OR Feudal Japan

"Foreign" just doesn't cut it sometimes.

THANKS!

Suggestion Type: Tag
Name: Politics/Politcal
Comments: For RPs that are focused on political themes. Was looking and realized there wasn’t a tag like this.


Suggestion Type: Sub-Genre
Name: Government
Comments: Maybe a companion to the politics tag. If, for instance, someone wanted to create a White House or Parliament RP.
Added those tags.

Suggestion Type: Sub-Genre
Name of Sub-Genre/Tag/Dice Systems: Reverse Isekai
Finally added it as a tag.

Suggestion Type: Add Dice System
Legend of the 5 Rings (L5R)
fairly widely played system for playing in a Samurai Clan setting with elements from Game of Thrones
Give me a moment to try and remember how to add this to that particular filter. I will add it though!

Suggestion type: tag
Victorian
Rps that pertain to the Victorian era or aesthetic, to further categorize the flavor of historical rps.
Added and great suggestion.

Unfortunately this is an add-on that a developer created for the forum software we use. All we can do it poke them that as a suggestion and hope they may consider and implement it.

Added. I thought I got all the punk-genres listed, guess I missed that one.

Added as a tag. I need to catch up on the series >_>;;

Yu-Gi-Oh plz
Added.

Someone earlier suggested political and between politics and political that is the one selected to become a tag.
Intrigue was added as well as Japan since you can use the historical sub-genre for the time period of Feudal Japan.

Suggestion Type: Sub-Genre
Name of Sub-Genre/Tag/Dice Systems: Romance
Comments: Honestly surprised this isn't here.

EDIT: nevermind, it's one of the big tags.
 

Space Buddha

The Enlightened One
type: Tag
name: Joke
comments: For use on non-serious RPs or those with a somewhat silly premise, differs from comedy in that there can be serious comedy rps, whereas this is for RPs that are entirely meant to be non-serious.

type: Tag
name: Meme
comments: Same as above, but suggests that the non-seriousness escalates to the levels of shitpostery rather than just general sillyness

type: Tag
name: Nation-building
comments: shows that nation/civilization building is a major factor in an RP.

type: Tag
name: Slow-paced
Comments: shows that an RP can have turns which last weeks, if not months, and runs at a generally slow pace.

type: Tag
name: Fast-paced
Comments: The inverse of the above.

type: Tag
name: 18+
Comments: for GMs who dislike kids, heartless bastards.

type: Tag
name: God
Comments: Implies the players are gods or somehow working for a god or something like that, I run such an RP so this would be pretty useful.

Type: Tag
Name: Disturbing Content
comments: could be used if the story elements of an RP may be a bit much for some people, useful for Horror RPs.

Type: Tag
Name: Lovecraftian
comments: shows that an RP has cosmic horror/lovecraftian elements, or maybe even the presence of cthulhu himself.

Type: Tag
Name: Anime
Comments: How has this site lasted so long without this one existing!?

Type: Tag
Name: Based
Comments: Implies an RP is based on some previous RP, but we all know it's just a meme that people in my discord server talked me into posting here so please don't make this one okay?

Suggestion Type: Tag
Name of Sub-Genre/Tag/Dice Systems: No set roles
Comments: RPs where players can make whatever character they want within the world/setting

Suggestion Type: Tag
Name of Sub-Genre/Tag/Dice Systems: First come, first served
Comments: RPs where there's a set list of roles, but they're available to the first person to request/post a CS for them

Suggestion Type: Tag
Name of Sub-Genre/Tag/Dice Systems: Application-based
Comments: RPs where people can apply to set roles, and the thread starter will select who plays what when applications close

Just noticed it as a common split between RPs, and thought it might be useful to be able to search for one kind or the other. Names are mostly guesswork, idk if there's more common terms.

What about Renaissance or Pike and Shot?
Pike and Shot might be a bit too specific and very likely not something that would be frequently used. Renaissance is a good suggestion though.

Some of these will be declined, such as joke and meme (also rp threads aren't for shitposting which is what the tags are for). Comedy already covers things of a humorous nature. God is already covered under the Deities tag. Nation-building has its own prefix. 18+ can be potentially interpreted in a way that promotes sexual roleplays (which we don't allow, so this might end up on the indefinite discussion table). Anime is listed as a sub-genre, there was a tag and we removed it since duplication is silly. ;3

That leaves some good ones though like slow-paced, fast-paced, and Lovecraftian.

dice system: Call of Cthulhu 7e
Pretty popular horror system
Oo, good one!

Tags won't work with a comma* so something like first come, first served won't work out that well. No set roles and application-based will be put under consideration. :3

It's still readable enough with the comma missed out, I think? It's the only one of the three I've actually seen used word for word, lmao
