    Since this is already bumped, what am I not working on? lol.

    Let's see, I already have a revival of my Legend of Zelda crossover. Long story short: Ganon brought all of the Links, Zeldas, Ganons, and bad guys from all games into one world, merging them together. He rules the new world (New Hylia) with his new Royal Family of Evil (all of the bad guys). Most Zeldas are merged into his queen, who keeps prisoner because he can't take her Triforce of Wisdom yet. The Links aren't merged, but are kept prisoner by Ganon until he can find a way to take all of their Triforces at once (Adult Link from OoT escaped and Ganon needs all Triforces of Courage together before he can take them). I posted this once, but took a sabbatical from the site shortly after. Posted it again about two months ago, but noticed a big flaw in my plot: without each Link being played by an active RPer, a good number of the bad guys taken, and other important characters (other versions of Zelda) taken, I couldn't make it work. So I'm working on finding a way to have a back-up plan in case I don't get enough people to join.
    I'm still working on my MMO RP up above, but lost my own interest in finishing it. Hopefully, I'll get inspired to finish it eventually.
    I have a Mecha RP pretty much done, but I won't post it for a long time. After humans discovered space travel, aliens discovered humans. An alien race tried to invade and conquer Earth, but humanity was able to hold them back with space technology for decades. However, during that time, the countries of Earth decided that the war may already be lost and used the war as a diversion. While the aliens were too busy fighting humans to notice, Earth sent several colonies of people to another world (Elseworld) to terraform and colonize it. Elseworld is similar to Earth, but much more in tune with nature (Think Pandora from the film Avatar) and has no intelligent civilizations. Animals on Elseworld are extremely large and hostile, though. Earth's humans created several colonies spread throughout the world with barriers to protect from the animals. The moon to Elseworld, which is similar to a small planet, is also colonized. Both the moon and Elseworld have ancient ruins, giving evidence of a long-destroyed civilization. Among the ruins are large robots (the Mechas). Elseworlders are able to use Earth's new space technology to rebuild and pilot the Mechas. Overtime, it is revealed the living on Elseworld has given the humans the ability to crystallize part of their souls into a Crystal Key which when used on a personal Mecha unlocks secret capabilities (Transforming, new weapons, new abilities, combining, disassembling, etc.) A military academy is built on Elseworld's moon designed to teach students how to form their own Crystal Key and create their own Mechas, as well as training them to be soldiers. Elseworld is in constant contact with Earth and other colonized planets. The purpose of the Academy is to create Mecha soldiers to help Earth fight back and defeat the aliens and stop the aliens' conquest of the universe, as well as creating warriors to defend the colonies from Elseworld's monsters. The story takes place hundreds of years later with Earth still at a standstill against the aliens and most people on Elseworld never having seen Earth until they are sent to protect it. Every attempt to make contact with the aliens has failed and the worlds' leaders feel that if the aliens aren't stopped there, Elseworld could also be found and taken. In the academy (where the story takes place before moving onto Elseworld itself), several students will eventually stumble into the secret of Elseworld's original civilization and find a way to stop the aliens. Meanwhile, political tension on Elseworld builds about whether or not the Academy's graduates should continue to be sent to join Earth's space military or should Elseworld just cut ties with Earth and build its own military to better fight the aliens if Elseworld is found.
    Some may remember my project: The Ultimate Final Fantasy Crossover (http://kh-vids.net/threads/the-ultimate-final-fantasy-crossover.114403/). It's a Final Fantasy crossover between the main series (Final Fantasy I to Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy XII, XIII, Type-0, and the Tactics series along with most prequels and sequels from those games) that takes place in the world of Final Fantasy VII. So all characters will somehow be reimagined as a character in that world (Lightning from FFXIII is SOLDIER, Zidane is part of AVALANCHE, Kefka works for Shinra, etc.) Several other features (Summons from other games, Fal'Cie, l'Cie, Manikins, and more) are also reworked into the world. Some people will not exist anymore from FFVII (Aerith and Red XIII were successfully mated to create Khimari from FFX, but were then killed so they're not playable; Cid from FFVII has his role replaced by someone else's) and some people from other games may not be allowed. Anyway, I never finished the project because I thought it'd be too big to do (three main storylines taking place on the three different countries: Shinra, the Palamecia Empire [replaces Wutai], and Ivalice [to the north]. Also, the first part of the RP is very scripted and I have to trust people to follow certain roles until we moved on to the second part, which is more sandbox-styled), but I think I could finish it now. I have most of it done, just need to make a list of the characters and their new roles. It will be called Dissidia 007[septimus] Final Fantasy.


    If anybody is interested in any of these, please feel free to contact me for more information or even help developing any of them.

    Just a thought; that RP from the first post, "The Kids Aren't All Right," sounds an awful lot to me like Marvel's "Runaway" series (which I like). : P

    I don't have anything planned, per se, but I really liked the Doctor Who RP I set up all that time ago, and would like another chance at it sometime since I was horrible at posting in it. Or, perhaps, I'd like to try a SuperWhoLock (Supernatural x Doctor Who x Sherlock) RP, since all three of those shows are rather popular. I dunno. Neither of these are going to happen anytime soon, I don't think, but they're just a couple of ideas I have.

    Roleplays, roleplays . . .

    My current, biggest project is a a roleplay surround the magical girl theme. Don't misunderstand, I'm not the bubblegum and Candyland type person, and so most of my inspiration for this roleplay was drawn from the very happy, super fun ( !! ) anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica. In fact, one would find that my roleplay is, very basically, a Madoka roleplay, but I'm taking a somewhat different direction with it, and it's going to take a lot of planning before I can even say it's half-way done.

    I am hoping that it draws a good crowd of boys and girls equally because it's not just girls that players can create, it's the boys, and I'm considering letting a select few create major enemies and have the ability to control them. I'm pretty sure the roleplay will be set to Advanced, but I haven't gotten so far yet to say for sure.

    - - -

    Once upon a time, I was planning a roleplay that would be the sister project to my character dump story, Project G.E.H., but since there were too many locations and I knew that people would get easily confused, I do believe I dropped it. I have been looking to revive the idea once more, but I feel that the locations and weapons would stop me.

    - - -

    At one point in time ( though no files of it have been deleted ), I was developing an Assassin's Creed-based roleplay, but it was kind of one that didn't take place in an alternate time or a historical setting. The premier guise was that a collection of young adults who were terminally ill were to be placed in an Animus ( or Animus-like machine ) to access the genetic memories of someone else, and they were set into this other world inside the Animus to maybe find a cure, or simply to live a second life, undeterred by their looming sickness.

    Unfortunately, the only thing that would sustain them would be for them to stay inside the Animus, and things aren't always as the seem inside the machine. Eventually, plot would have brought up that there was an important job to be done, and that they needed to complete it, or else there would be trouble.

    That's all, folks.

    I currently have a bunch of roleplay concepts in progress. The one I am working on most avidly at the moment is one based on LARPing, where the characters are the LARPers. They go about their average day to day lives and then once a week ( RP time ) they all meet up at a park dressed up and ready to go for battling the day away.

    I have a few other ideas too. Some were announced in an interest thread awhile back while others weren't.
    EDIT: The ones that are crossed off have been completed.

    Ooh, the LARPing and the Artwork Run Amuck ones sound fun! Those would be cool. : D

    Hmmm. I've been thinking of getting into Madoka, so that might be interesting. I really like the sound of the Assassin's Creed Animus one. I just really love sci-fi and virtual reality stuff~

    Again, I've got no plans, but. I just realized how cool it would be to have a Steampunk Sky Pirates RP. Steampunk is actually my life right now. ♥

    OH THANK YOU. THE LARPING ONE IS FINISHED BY THE WAY, JUST NOT POSTED. THE OTHERS ARE WELL UNDER CONSTRUCTION. I'VE BEEN DEBATING MIXING THE ARTWORK RUN AMUCK ONE WITH THE WORLD OF PAINTINGS ONE. I HAVEN'T DECIDED FULLY YET. I'VE GOT IDEAS THAT WOULD WORK FOR ALL THREE VERSIONS, I.E. THE TWO SEPARATE AND ALSO THE TWO COMBINED. I'VE ALSO GOTTEN SOME IDEAS FOR WHAT TO DO WITH THE OTHERS. I HOPE TO GET SOME OF THESE NEW RPS POSTED SOON SINCE THEY ARE ALL COMING TOGETHER PIECE BY PIECE. :]

    Might as well bring this up.

    I'm taking my time in making a new RP. I don't know when I'll post it because it seems like it'd get buried under other people's RPs and real life issues and whatnot, but here's the idea.

    Survival horror. "But Arch, horror doesn't exist in RP form!" Yeah, RPing is a terrible medium for horror(video game master race). But I want to try going for something dark and a little morbid. Basically, my idea revolves around a bunch of college students solving a mystery. "What mystery?" THE MYSTERY OF LIFE DAMMIT. Okay, not really. All the college students belong to one university. They go there and it's empty. No one's there at all. They would have to go through and uncover dark secrets of not only the school but of themselves. Nothing is real. Nothing but pain.

    "But Arch! That isn't much to go off on!" TOO BAD. I plan on putting in a few unique...mechanics to the RP that I haven't seen in any others. Like an inventory system. Every character will be allowed to only carry a certain amount of things. Also, I'll only allow one character per person for maximum character development. "But Arch! What if that character dies?" I've thought about this. How can there be suspense without me resorting to killing(and thereby kicking RPers) characters? I have a way around this. I won't say what that is though.


    So yeah. I want to make a dark RP. No super powers. No super soldiers. Just a bunch of seemingly normal college kids stuck in what will soon become a nightmare.

    So I just thought I would mention that I eighty-sixed the Blue Bloods RP idea. While I was looking up information on the angels mentioned in that book series, I became engrossed in the mythology of angels ( not saying angels are a myth, don't be hatin' ) and decided I wanted to do something more associated with them then the angel/vampire combo. This one is actually almost finished. But basically, it's about the fallen angels that were cast out of heaven and forced to live on Earth with man. After they fall, their wings are stripped and their powers fade away over time. Their souls never rest so every time they die, they are reincarnated as someone new. At first they are able to retain their memories, but as time goes on, those memories slowly begin to fade away. They walk the Earth for a few millenium, having no clue whom they are.

    Now it's present day and with all the chaos that has been going on in our world over the last year or two, it has been taken as a sign that Lucifer is rising early. The rapture isn't for quite a long time yet and the angels, have to fight him off and prolong his rise to power. The only problem is that they are spread out all over the world and have no idea that they are anything but human.

    I'm thinking of bringing my Final Fantasy rp to this site. This one is more original with a original story,characters,races,world,etc but stays true to the Final Fantasy tradition.

    I've put some more time into this idea since then and have evolved it into a special task force that investigates paranormal occurences. The player limit's still there so I can move the story along at a more brisk pace. Each member of the squad has a certain ability that's necessary to the team's success, so the RP really relies on activity and player sense. For example, say one member of the squad has The Touch. Meaning, he can make physical contact with supernatural beings. A situation might call for him to subdude a ghost so the player with The Key can create the gateway to send the entity back to the afterlife. The focus is me, presenting the group with challenges and mysteries and seeing if they can break them without too much assistance from my character. I'm planning to have a Briefing session before the team goes off on a mission that should give them all the information they need, that way they can sort of know how to act without too much help from me. An example of this is that a briefing might say the deceased was a known cannibal but only had a taste for female flesh. Then other players might decide not to split up, but to travel in a group. Or maybe even to lure it out by sending a female member out on their own.

    There is an RP that I want to be a reality, but I am currently pre-occupied with Mario's High School Days at the moment. Once I feel like I've given each of my characters in that rp a proper ending, then I will move on with the rp I had in mind. It's called Kingdom Hearts: The Keyblade War

    So yeah, as the title suggests, it'll be focused on the Keyblade War that is heavily mentioned in the KH series. KH3's announcement really reignited my intention in creating it. Now, the events leading up to it would be the main focus, with the actual war being the final battle of the rp. I intend for it to be a crossover, with the only characters not allowed being all Disney, FF, TWEWY, and original KH characters that appeared in the series so far, because, well, how can they be in that timeline?? They don't even exist yet! OCs are allowed as well. Any character from any franchise whatsoever is allowed to be a Keyblade wielder if the rper wants to. One unique thing about this rp is that worlds can be reserved as well (which is also a necessity if someone wants to reserve a character from the reserved world).

    *hip bump*

    So today I suddenly got in a very Bionicle mood. I went back through my folder of half-finished things and found a Bionicle character sheet I was working on, and ding ding! What if I put together a Bionicle RP? I don't have a whole lot of ideas yet, but right now I'm thinking it would take place before the 2009 plot (aka before Teridax pulls a Grand Theft Me on the universe itself and exiles Mata Nui) [although come to think of it, a rebellion RP could be pretty interesting, too], separate from canon events, but not completely excluding canon characters. The focus would be on OCs, but canon characters could appear.

    ...Of course, this is all assuming that there would be interest on the forum.

    I don't know enough about Bionicle to tell you I'm interested right now, but the two or so movies I've seen years ago, I enjoyed~

    I'm about to post one later tonight. It's a post-apocalyptic RP paying tribute to the genre by taking elements from several different sources (Supernatural, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Walking Dead, Pokemon Snakewood, DMC, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West are the main ones) or maybe I'm just lazy. It takes place over 200 years after zombies have successfully taken over the world. The zombie virus is the result of demons breaking through to our dimension. The virus mutates causing werewolves and vampires. Robots that were created to fight them have instead been corrupted and turned against humans and evil spirits are also abound, along with the demons that started it all and their...let's say surrogate, a man named Zero.


    One I haven't been working hard on, but haven't been playing has to do with deities housed inside people. The people can summon the deity and turn into them (Etrigan<3). I just haven't decided what I want the setting to be, but I'm leaning towards an academy that teaches how to use the deities.

    *lightly bumps*

    At the suggestion of...somebody >>;, I've been trying to conceptualize a Pokémon RP based on the third-gen games, Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. A Pokémon RP on its own isn't difficult to set up—have a Professor, give starters, have the players progress through the region and fight gym leaders and, eventually, the Elite 4—but I want it to be more than that. I want there to be an actual plot. And I'm having trouble coming up with one. See, I want it to take place in Hoenn, but I want it to be new—different gym leaders, different E4 members, different evil Team plot. I just can't think of anything interesting or compelling enough...

    Well, I'm currently into Gokaiger quite a bit, and Power Rangers overall, so lately I've been playing with ideas for a Power Rangers RP called Power Rangers: Super Megaforce Legends. It's basically the same plot as Gokaiger, but it involves a lot of different villains coming in from the past and stuff to stop the rangers. The current rangers would use the Super Megaforce/Gokaiger costumes and powers, but they'd be OCs. I would also be including veteran rangers at certain parts, and in the final battle.

    It's an idea, and I want to wait to see if there is any interest in it. I could use help figuring out ways to develop how the characters would come in and when so I don't have five people RPing with others coming in for a few pages and then leaving.

    Power Rangers could be fun~ I'm really rusty/ignorant of most, if not all of the mythos, but I'd be willing to sign up. :3

    The 7th Realm (A Game of Chance) [Tentative title]
    A Risk/Game of Thrones/board games inspired roleplay where it's more focused on the characters in the middle of the war than the factions themselves. Might make an interest thread later, but the premise is that 6 nations are fighting for their own reasons, dominion over a land that mysteriously disappeared 20 years ago. It has now reappeared with riches, dangers, and secrets to discover. This works like a strategy game where 6 roleplayers will be chosen as acting leaders of the nations, and I will be an unbiased 3rd party behind all actions requiring a roll of the dice as well as advisor to each nation. Each faction has it's own "Style" of soldier and way of life, from pirates, to warriors, to archers, to survivalists.

    (Other ideas found here)
