New RPG Forum under development

Post by Arano » Sat Mar 16, 2019 11:10 pm

An RPG forum has been spotted in the wild in the Members forum area!
EDIT: This has now been hidden to general members and will re-appear when the forum is ready!

I opened applications for RPG devs back in January, and the poll for whether people wanted an RPG section was 50/50. I left it for a while and was going to leave it entirely as there wasn't much interest, but decided in the end to give the task to Astor, who is going to team up with Gingastar!

Thank you to Kaiken and DakotaTheGSD for also applying :)

The forum will be accessible to everyone once it is complete, stay tuned!

Just to update on Arano’s post, the development was delayed while I wasn’t well (hospital trips and all). HOWEVER!
Star and I have finally began focusing on the development of the RPG section! We have decided on some solid mechanics that we hope you’ll all enjoy to give the roleplay a bit more fleshing out. We’re all very excited :D

Yay! I am so excited to see where this goes! I hope some sort of Art & or point system is involved. I would love to make art and draw ocs for upgrades or cool suff, Idk lol. Regular story RPs are just as fun too, I'm excited to see it's first appearance!

Question- will there be a place for us to create pre-determined character relationships with other users? Eg. if we wanted our character to have a sibling without playing them both.

There is a general discussion area, so you’re free to use it however you wish!

Another question(s):
- Will there be playable canon characters (like on previous GB they were kinda "exclusive" and had their players).
- Will there be a posibility for an OC to be related to canon character?
- Will there be a posibility for an OC to be involved with canon character(not related, but friends, enemies etc.)?

Hey there! :D

1. Yep! Canon characters will be playable! Members will be allowed to claim canon characters via a topic in the RPG section.

2. Yes! We allow for OCs to be related to canon characters. However, in regards to offspring we will say that characters who already have offspring in the series (for example Weed, Gin, Jerome), will not be allowed to be given offspring that are OCs. Characters without any known offspring in the series though (for example, Smith, Tesshin, Mel) will be accepted for having offspring that are OCS.

This also applies to giving characters siblings, in which characters that have no known siblings, or siblings that were never named/had a spot in the story, such as Mel’s siblings and Ken’s siblings from Cross’ first litter, are allowed.

3. Yes! OCs can certainly be friends/enemies with canon characters!

I had no idea we would be able to claim canon characters. Is it first come first served, or will there be a system to decide who can play who? I'm just worried about disputes happening over certain characters, popular ones (eg. Gin, Akame, Kyoshiou, Tesshin, etc) especially.

Cool. I would like to include some of my characters but I didn't want to forcefuly change their relations. Yay.

Sounds really cool but I don't exactly know what RPG is? Can anyone explain it for me? :)

I'm wondering too.

Do I understand it right that there's a ginga game in progress? I somehow don't really understand. I know what RPG is, but I don't get it though...

RPG means Role Playing Game. Basically you make a character and you role play with them in a story/comic/game etc. Think like Skyrim :)

Yes, characters will be first come first serve via a topic that will be created for claiming characters. However, the number of canon characters members can claim will be limited to avoid canon character hoarding. So in the event that someone has already claimed a character, there should be plenty of other characters to go around for anyone who would like to play someone :)

We also think this Board is rather good in getting along with one another, so I doubt that any big disputes will arise over canon character claiming. :EXCITE:

No, not a literal (video) game unfortunately, but the kind of Role Play Game in which you create a character (in this case it could be a Ginga OC, for example) and write about them in an overarching story alongside other members who you are roleplaying with and taking turns responding too!

This topic is an excellent example of a Roleplay, and a Ginga one at that as we were using Ginga OCs!
https://www.gingaboard.com/viewtopic.php?f=105&t=1500

Keep in mind though that everyone has their own styles of RP responses! Some people have short replies, some people like writing long replies! The RPG section is great for any level of RPing, whether you're a beginner Role Player or an experienced RPer! :D

I hope that answered your question!
