I want to get back into roleplay, but it's been so long that I feel pretty out of sink. I don't really even know what kind of roleplay I would like to get into.

I do remember some more open threads that we used to have way back in the day, where someone would just start out with a place and time of day, and leave it open and chill. And then of course, there was the more dark rps, and science fiction rps.

But I don't know if some of those would really be appropriate here, seeing as it's more a pg site.

What do you guys think? Is there anything you would like to see done? What do you think the lines should be for this site as far as how dark a roleplay can get?

Also, feel free to post character sheets if you want, maybe we could see if certain characters would be good for certain rps.

Well I like Ponyville.us /rp/ better than Ponychan's /rp/. Ponychan /rp/ are pretty much dominated with RP-guilds that I don't really feel as casual there. But Ponyville.us /rp/ is more chill where people can start up their own RPs and get a few friends in on it.

Though for some reason the casual-freestyle RPs don't do so good, I wonder why?

That's how I remember /rp/ being on ponychan back when I first joined, and then it kinda slowed down over the years and died.

>Though for some reason the casual-freestyle RPs don't do so good, I wonder why?

I'm not a hundred percent sure, but my theory is that it is a combination of traffic (it being slow), not having a good topic or not knowing what to rp about, and people not sticking around long enough to get something really going.

I'm personally pretty prone to that last one because I'm a slow poster unless I'm in the mood and have all day to post, so in more casual rps, I like to pop in for a while then pop out. I don't usually want to stick around for long in those types of threads because they are not heavily story influenced, and I'm not usually into the casual, slice of life rp. Unless it' more fast paced, oat style funny rp.

Well I find it both a good and bad thing.
I'm glad our /rp/ is not as built up as Ponychans /rp/. It has various ongoing RP threads with lots of activities on them and they've been around for years, it's like various guilds. There are a few independant RPs on Ponychans /rp/ but they usually fizzle out since most of the attention is to the big ones.

Our /rp/ does indeed lack traffic which makes most of the RPs here lack activity, but I'm glad our /rp/ is not as build up as Pnychans.

Plus some RP game masters find it easier to manage a small group or work than it is to manage lots of players.

I remember an RP series I once did on Ponychan ages a go consist of Epic Mount lounging in a pool in Everfree Forest while other RPers, regardless of their history with me or not, could simply come and go, join me in the water and just RP-talk about stuff.

I remember those types of rps, I really liked them.

Maybe those would be good for around here. Just casual, not relying too heavily on people to stick around and push the story forward; unless something developed and they wanted to.

Yah, but I need to think of somewhere else for Epic to lounge about.
