M looking for good story
« on: September 23, 2013, 02:01:06 PM »
This is a work in progress, and will continue to be so for the foreseeable future.

My style and what I expect from a roleplay partner.

Most importantly I am looking for plot first, smut second. Us both playing more than one main character, as well as several NPCs, is something I love. That really makes it possible for me to immerse myself into the roleplay. This is not a must though, and I don't mind being the GM for the right partner. As for post length I do both shorter replies and several big paragraphs, depending on the roleplay. My post length depends on what is going on in the roleplay, and what I am given by my partner. If I get several paragraphs filled with details you will not get a short reply in return, but if I get a short post you probably won't be getting a very long post in return either, so I tend to give what I get. Example of a roleplay with long posts, and one with a mixture of long and short posts.

I have just started a new job, so posting speed might vary. I will try and keep my partners updated about what is going on though. I'm patient about my partner's posting speed, as long as I know what is going on and what I can expect.

Also, communication is key. If we can't communicate the roleplay probably isn't going to last very long. We don't have to talk OOC (even if I do love getting to know my partners), but we have to be able to talk about the roleplay, and what we want to happen etc. But as long as you are friendly, willing to make an effort, and don't mind bringing your own ideas to the table, I'm pretty sure we will get along great. :-)

You can find more information in my On/Off-thread.

In a small town in the middle of nowhere

See this thread for a bit more information about this idea.

The location for this roleplay will be a small town in the middle of nowhere. Just what kind of town it will be we will decide together, but here is my take on it. The town will have seen better days. Around town there will be farmlands, and there will be a proper town center (no malls), but there will also be abandoned industrial buildings around the railroad tracks. The railroad tracks are important, they are on the outskirts on town, and if you choose to cross the railroad tracks you are choosing the side of the freaks. The freaks are the outcasts of the town, at least among the youths. They are a mixture, everything from metalheads to stoners to small time criminals. But not all bad people. On the other side of the tracks are the "normal" youth, with the football players and cheerleaders leading the pack. The football team is quite good, and kind of the pride of the town, so you know the football players will be full of themselves.

And these are the people we will be playing, as well as some of the other people around town. I want to focus on the youth of the town (17-18 years to early twenties, older high school students and those who didn't leave town after graduating high school). Things to delve into would be the feeling of isolation from living in such an isolated place, the divide between the freaks and the jocks, but also them being young and getting into all kinds of trouble. So we would be playing them do whatever they are doing, just what they will get up to we will of course discuss, or we could just go with it and see where things might end up.

When it comes to sex and nudity I'm thinking the town will a bit more liberal than what one expects for such a town. I'm not talking orgies in the streets of course, just that sex and nudity isn't that big of a deal. Like, people have sex, and that is just the way it is. And no double-standard when it comes to guys and girls and hooking up, basically girls wouldn't get crap for doing what guys would be the hero among his friends for. I hope this makes sense, I've been told that even though things seems all logical in my head, that might not be the case, so if this isn't making any sense just wack me over the head with something (preferably something soft) and ask me what I'm talking about. That goes for everything in this post by the way.

Baker Street

Inspired by the song Baker Street by Gerry Rafferty.

For your convenience, the lyrics
"Baker Street"

Winding your way down on Baker Street
Light in your head and dead on your feet
Well, another crazy day
You'll drink the night away
And forget about everything
This city desert makes you feel so cold
It's got so many people, but it's got no soul
And it's taken you so long
To find out you were wrong
When you thought it held everything

You used to think that it was so easy
You used to say that it was so easy
But you're trying, you're trying now
Another year and then you'd be happy
Just one more year and then you'd be happy
But you're crying, you're crying now

Way down the street there's a light in his place
He opens the door, he's got that look on his face
And he asks you where you've been
You tell him who you've seen
And you talk about anything
He's got this dream about buying some land
He's gonna give up the booze and the one-night stands
And then he'll settle down
In some quiet little town
And forget about everything

But you know he'll always keep moving
You know he's never gonna stop moving
'Cause he's rolling, he's the rolling stone
And when you wake up, it's a new morning
The sun is shining, it's a new morning
And you're going, you're going home

Baker Street, located in some anonymous big city, is filled with dive bars, pawnshops, sleazy strip joints, even sleazier motels and dodgy looking restaurants. The people are mostly down on their luck, or just searching for something they probably won't find there. It's a miserable place, and the cheap apartments are filled with all kinds of weird, and sometimes dangerous, people.

I don't have a plot in mind, I just love this song and I get this vision of a place like the one I just described when I listen to the song. I'm not looking for a smut-driven roleplay, I want to explore this vision I have in my head with someone who enjoys character development, plot and the darker side of humanity.

Post-apocalyptic setting

I don't have anything specific in mind for this one as of yet, but since I do love me a post-apocalyptic setting I'm throwing it into the mix. Zombies, weather out of control, alien invaders, disease, World War III - whatever made the shit hit the fan I could be up for it.

Hawaii Five-0

So I've been watching a lot of Hawaii Five-0 lately (not so lately anymore), and I've been wanting to do a roleplay with a similar cast set on Hawaii. Five-0 is a police task force who, at least in the first season, can do pretty much whatever they want. I would like to follow the members of the task force (we would be playing two of them each), both through the cases they solve, but also through their lives and how their relationships evolve (not necessarily in any sexual way). I would prefer the main characters to be OC, but we can use characters from the TV show as well as NPCs. I don't have anything specific in mind for plot or characters at this point, but if this tickles your fancy shoot me a pm and we can figure something out together.

Tex Murphy

Tex Murphy is a down on his luck PI in post-World War III San Francisco. If you know the setting and the characters we can do it with canon characters, but if you just like the idea of a roleplay set in this setting we can just the Tex Murphy-universe as our playground and develop our own cast of characters.

Almost Famous

In Almost Famous high school guy gets to travel with the fictional band Stillwater on what will most likely be their breakthrough tour, sometime around 1970. Basically it's guitar players with a god complex, drugs, sex, rock'n'roll, risky venues, a crappy tour bus, groupies, shitty motels etc. What I have in mind is creating a fictional band on tour, with crew, journalists, fans, groupies and everything else surrounding an up and coming band, and just go with it. We can go a bit dark with conflicts in the band and inner demons, or we can just treat it as a continuous party. Totally up to us. You have to be comfortable (and enjoying) playing multiple characters for this one.

Empire Records

Empire Records is one of my favorite movies of all time. It depicts one crazy day in the lives of a group of people working in a record store, and how they try to save the store from being taken over by a big chain with loads of stores all over the state. I'm not looking to re-create the movie though, I want to re-create the mood of the place. Young people working there (everything from the overachiever to the punk girl with an attitude problem in the movie), the really laid-back feel to the place, how the employees would get up to all kinds of shenanigans and not get fired. It seemed like a really fun place to work, if a bit maddening to manage.

What I'm looking for is someone who wants to play multiple characters in a record store in the 1990s when your CD-collection still told people what kind of person you were (or what kind of person you wanted to be). The plot is just having fun, but we can come up with something a bit more tangible as well. If we are able to create the kind of feel that the movie has I'll write anything, almost anyway.

Stargate SG-1

I loved the premise of this show, exploring alien worlds. Sure, it was a bit of a stretch that the whole universe understood English, and the execution of the show wasn't always the best. But I still loved this show, and I would love to play a SG-team stationed at Cheyenne Mountain going on missions off-Earth. We can jump into the story at any point, although I do prefer the Goa'uld story arch. I also prefer the earlier episodes, when Jack O'Neill was still around. Yet again I don't have anything specific in mind at this point, as I do prefer plotting with my partners. If you enjoyed this show and want to write something based in this universe, hopefully I'm your guy.

My old request thread
Hi and welcome to my request thread. Just a few things before getting to my ideas. First, please send me a pm instead of answering in this thread, as I would like to keep it tidy here. Second, my ideas are a starting point for plotting, and I do want a partner who enjoys plotting as it is important for me to create a story together with my partner. Third, I love when we both play several characters, as well as dividing up the NPCs (NPCs played by both players bugs me due to the inconsistency), so if you want to do that I will be very happy. And fourth, I am looking for plot and a good story, there will be sex of course but only when it fits into the story.

Also, be sure to read my O/O. You will find more about my roleplay-preferences there.

Closed for now
A Twisted Affair

Our characters meet and they hit it off. So far so good, but this will not be just another love story. The thing is, your character had something else than love in mind when approaching my character. Maybe she wants to make a guy jealous, and this guy ends up kicking the shit out of my character. Or something else, you will have the final word on what your character is up too.

It doesn't stop there though. My character has your characters name, and he look her up. Now what happens? Why did he look her up? Is he lovesick? Does he want revenge? How will she react? In any case some sort of relationship will form, a bad one. A destructive one. The kind that drags them both down to the bottom, but nobody is walking away. And there will be no rainbow as the rain lets up and the sun once again shines, it will only get worse. One of them breathing at the end would be considered a pretty happy ending. Both breathing? I don't believe in miracles...

Sexual elements: Something matching the feel of the game, so think along the lines of non-con etc.

The Adventurous Reporter

I want to do something along the lines of Indiana Jones or the Relic Hunter. A strong female lead working as a reporter, or something else that will allow her to go travelling, going all over the world on her adventures and getting herself into all kinds of trouble. I would like there to be a certain amount of humor in this roleplay, like her getting herself into situations that are both funny and sexy.

The P.I.

I just want to do something along the good old detective-story. You know, where the scotch is cheap and the cigarettes plentiful, the cops are on the take and there is a dame in the office with a big problem and legs that never ends...

I don't have a plot ready for this one as of yet, but if you want to cook something up together shoot me a pm and we will talk.

Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll

The 1960s and 1970s was a great time to be a rock star, so why not go back to those decades? Drugs, groupies, Woodstock, free sex, hippies, guitarists with a God-complex... The fun goes on. If you have seen the movie Almost Famous that is not too far from what I am looking for here.

In a small town in the middle of nowhere

There is something about a smalltown-setting with the freaks as the main focus that sounds like a lot of fun. Think late 80s or early 90s, before Internet to make the isolation even greater. Maybe a gang of metalheads about to finish high school or just having finished. Not going to college, so some might have a job, some don't. Ever in opposition against the small-minded town, and getting the blame for everything that happens. Maybe there is a girl from the right side of the tracks looking to do some slumming as well?

Again, no plot ready as of yet, but would love to discuss this idea further with someone.

Post-apocalyptic roleplay

I'm always up for a post-apocalyptic roleplay, whatever caused the shit to hit the fan.

In the big city no-one can hear you scream...

I want to do a roleplay exploring the sinister depths of the big city, the alleys where the bum lives, the strip joint which is the last stop before the streets awaits, being in way to deep with the wrong people... Think along the lines of a New York City before the clean-up, a city rippled with a crack epidemic, dirty cops and street gangs. You get the idea.

In this city we can be whoever we want, who will it be...?


Tex Murphy - I would love to do a roleplay in the setting of this game series. Both cannon and non-cannon. Although if cannon you must have proper knowledge of the game and characters.

Twin Peaks.

Reality Bites - something along the lines of a group of twentysomething just out of college and not knowing what to do with their lives.

The Last of Us - I'm not looking to play the characters from the game, but rather do something in this post-apocalyptic world.

"Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now, wish right now"
