[color=blue][size=1]I know I'm not actually in the RPG yet, since you haven't decided who is participating, but just in case I [i]do[/i] get in, here's my question. Do the characters get weapons during the story, or do they fight by some other means (fist fights, for example)?

Other than that, I'm pretty clear on the rest of it. ^_^[/size][/color]

Hey, DW. I read the recruitment thread of this game at the Adventure Inn.

There were several thing that bothered me so I won't be signing in, but one thing bothered me the most, so could you please explain yourself.

Why did you say that the characters should be the same gender as the player? I mean, what's the point? I ask this as a person who loves to play both genders, and I'm utterly amazed that somebody puts in such a demand. It's not like a guy can't pretend to be a girl in a believable way, and otherway around.

And if you are worried that your character would fall for a female character that is actually played by a guy, I say you got some serious identity problems. ;) It's the characters that fall for each other, not the players.

Sorry, I realize I sound rude, but I just needed to know why you made such a demand. And I didn't just PM you because I wanted other people to know this too. ;)

It's not the fact that I want characters to fall for each other, it truely is the fact that in past RPGs, I've seen people of the other gender do horribly playing their opposite sex. I have seen people do it correctly (and register with a nice sign up), but I often see people over dramatizing the opposite sex's role or doing it wrong completely. Since someone of their own sex would know their gender best, I had put that in there. I'm sorry if this saddens you, but It's just how I am.

Besides, this RPG isn't much. It was a really old idea I had a few years back that I never did and I just wanted to throw it out for try. I hope you understand.

Oh, and to Kitty: Yes, characters will have swords or axes or what have you. No magic. Philippe simply has a staff that he really doesn't intend to use for fighting.

The only problem in your logic is that there's no way you can be 100% sure about anybody's gender here (unless you know them offline). ;)

Some people might just say they're a girl, and even post a girl's photo saying "look how cute I am!", and still be a guy. You never know...

I think what you see as overdoing a gender is in fact overdoing a character. If some boy can't play as a girl without going "check out these boobies!!", I find it hard to believe he can play a male character believably, meaning he is a poor player. ;)

There's a thought for you...

[img]http://img56.echo.cx/img56/3333/happy4wb.gif[/img] Heh, I'll keep your logic in mind. You make a fair point, my good Sage. But now I'm questioning if you're a guy or not. Maybe this latest post of yours is a secret code to say "I'm actually a female" [img]http://img56.echo.cx/img56/5017/wink0ql.gif[/img]

Or not...

Well, that's something for you to think about over and over again when you lie awake in your bed in the night. :p If you want the truth, ask Minako; she's seen me in nature.

But I shall bomb your thread with my out-of-topic posts no longer. I hope your RPG prospers despite the fact that it's awfully rushed and filled with clichés. ;)

Indeed. My screen name [i]is[/i], after all, Dragon Warrior, the most cliche RPG game in existance. I enjoy a good cliche roleplay every now and again, so here I am :) I just threw in the twist of a cartographer. Haha. Yes.

Thanks for posting, nevertheless.
