The Wild, Wild West RP Signups/Discussion Topic 3

#1MadameLuigi64Posted 8/3/2014 6:55:09 PM
The general setting is that outlaws have laid siege to and infiltrated a major desert city of a Western-based nation of Pokemon. There are four factions: Outlaws, Sheriff's office, Central Government, and Vigilantes.

There are no humans in this RP, and there is no knowledge of them. This is an alternate universe where they never existed.

In spite of its seemingly organized political structure, the Wild West is a very backwards region where the relative technology level is that they have no weapons besides Whips and Swords and basic revolver guns, and they ride Rapidash to get around. So, nothing that involves hi-tech stuff. However, TM's, HM's, and Tutor Moves can be used on Pokemon.

The Wild West region also borders an ocean.

More about each affiliation:

Outlaws- Work to hold up the city so that they can raid it and take whatever stuff they need to become rich, standard outlaw goals. However, they are extremely organized and their power is greater than that of the Sheriff's office in the city

Sheriff's office- Composed of the police force of the city. They try to stave off the Outlaws and take down whatever Vigilantes threaten the city. However, they are weaker than the Outlaws and thus had to call in the government for help.

Central Government- The government is the ruling force of the country, and is forced to respond by sending in Pokemon to try to stop the Outlaws.

Vigilantes- Vigs come in different types and forms. Some might be seafaring pirates trying to get their share of bounty, some might be self-appointed public heroes attempting to defeat Outlaws and anti-government Vigs. All in all, they are third party.

You're welcome. Will this page fill up with regulars talking about how to advance the story or newcomers who want to sign up?

IDK... the last one we had a few newcomers, but only two of them made a memorable passage through the main plot (HHDeception and Jolty). Let's hope we can keep this going ;)

We should be able to, if someone/a group of people keeps posting in here.

We should at least remember to bump this when needed.

How often is "as needed"? Once a day, every other day, every week?

After three days of inactivity the topic is archived, so... yeah, there we have it.

Which means, to be safe, we have to bump it at least every other day (every three days is too long). Sounds good. =)

Incoming wall of text! :O

On the subject of Stalker bringing up the question as to whether or not our next major battle will be the end or not, here's my thoughts:

I honestly wouldn't be too against ending the RP with the next major plot event or two. I'm enjoying the RP, as well as communicating with everyone, but it seems like it's going to be the same stuff over and over again otherwise, basically. Many characters have finished their own major side-arcs, and honestly, there's not too much else we can do but have a final showdown, off the top of my head right now.

Lily's avenged her brother, Krjl killed Lockjaw, Kha'Zix killed Bigby, Juvia killed Hydre, etc. That's not to mention Whyte evolving into Jolteon, as well as Jackal and Slim Shady both being sealed in a tomb.

On the other hand, Kha'Zix and Juvia still want Starstriker dead, due to Kha'Zix being free once Juvia's wishes are fulfilled, and Juvia wanting revenge. Whyte still needs to avenge Kilo (though his fire ritual will likely help ease that, as well as his nightmares involving Kilo), which means he'd have to kill Alita.

I'd also add Gnar to that unfulfilled back-story/motive list, but nobody knows where he came from, and he can't speak their language, meaning he can't tell them. There isn't much of a way to go about giving Gnar a motive other than to please Kha'Zix, who is basically his father.

Right now, it seems like the main personal motive that most everyone generally has is to take out Starstriker, and to do that, we'd have to go at another full-scale battle.

All-in-all, most of our members we thought would be active ended up leaving. I'd say that, for the next RP, having a sign-up on the Emerald Social Boards as well would be an amazing idea, due to a lot of them being pretty active. I'd be down for really anything, though when school starts in a week or two, my activity will be cut short by a lot more.

It's everyone else's call. I'm staying until the end of this, as I've put too much work in. Hell, I'd be fine even hosting the next one, if I can think of an idea and put the time towards it.

No matter what direction we want to go, however, it doesn't seem like we can do anything else, unless more people decided to sign up. It will likely just be the same people fighting the same bad guy for many times to come if we don't end it somewhat soon. This means that somebody would either have to turn to a villain (which nobody has a motive to do so, nor will likely gain one), or Captain would need to make a new one. That is, if we decided to continue with a new villain later.

I apologize for leaving any characters out (said people being Monty, Alan, Divelic Berd, Battleship, and Hercules). I needed examples, and I didn't want to make this post longer than it is.

No clue why I wrote this out now, but since somebody mentioned possibly ending the RP with the next major plot event and/or battle, I felt it to be a good time as any. In the end, it's just an opinion of mine. I've no reason to quit, nor will I, but I thought I'd make it clear that it may get stale at some point in the near future.
