Hello everyone, my name is Kurai, and as you can tell from my post count, I am a new member here. My prime interest in KHInsider is roleplaying. To that end, I was wondering, how active is the roleplay forum here? I can see from my small amount of lurking that multiple people have posted in the last several days, leading me to believe this is a fairly active community.

Thank you in advance to anyone who responds!

EDIT: Sorry if this is in the wrong section, not exactly sure where to put it.

Hello, Kurai. I'd first like to say welcome to the Roleplaying section.

As far as activity goes, there is regular posting in the section, but the activity in general is far lower than what it should be for a forum of this size. Though the numbers have dwindled over the years (though I'd like to think we are on a rebound, even if it's just a slight one), the community itself is fairly solid and definitely keeps the section alive. At the very least, I can assure you that you will have a great time here and interact with some amazing and creative people.

If you need anything, feel free to contact either myself or Orion, or you could post your questions here: The Roleplaying Tavern.

Ah, I see, thank you for summing it up so concisely. This sounds like a very nice community. You should be seeing me around in the future.

On a separate note, nice Kaworu (Kaoru?) avatar and sig. I'm a fan of Neon Genesis myself, though sadly I haven't seen any of the new movies...

I look forward to it.

Ah, I would certainly suggest them. Both films thus far have been an amazing re-imagining of the series.

@Omni- Yes, I've heard they're phenomenal. They're on my list, I just haven't quite made it to them yet.

@Ven- Does the sloth mean that it's super slow around here...? Other than that, thank you for the welcome.

Why no, my dear boy! I just find them utterly fascinating creatures, as they are. Quite humorous, hrm.

@KidA- Thank you for the welcome. I hope to roleplay with you in the future as well.

@Ven- Oh, alright then. I have to admit, they do look pretty funny.

Welcome to the section, Kurai! It's great to see a new face, especially one specifically interested in roleplaying, when often it seems most just stumble upon the place. I'm the resident Overlord the Professor was talking about, but I'm not so bad, really.

As Omni has described, in size and pace the roleplaying section these days is a little small and slow, but the sub-community that composes its members are tightly-knit in their individual groups, and it's not uncommon to see small groups migrating between roleplays.

Hello Orion, thank you for the welcome and the rundown. I'm excited to start roleplaying in a new place, even activity isn't extremely high. I'll lurk around for a while and try to get a hang for how stuff works around here.

Welcome to the roleplaying community Kurai! You won't be disappointed. We have some extremely creative and talented writers here, and I look forward to roleplaying with you brutha!

Oh and judging from your sig, you want a vanitas signature. We have plenty of great digital artists here in the media forum I believe? Get your favorite Vanitas picture and they'll whip up something great.

@Sora- Thank you for that information, I'll check out the media forum. Hope to roleplay with you in the future.

@Rhapsody- I VM'ed you back, but it couldn't help to post here as well, right? Thanks for the warm welcome. I hope to get RPing very soon.

Hello, Kurai! :) Welcome to the forums, and the roleplaying section! *bows* Sadly, I am unable to participate in RPs at the moment, prominently because of an unfortunate inability to seperate paragraphs. :( I'm using a DSi to post on the site lol. Whenever I get a better means to post here, I'll be quite happy to RP with you. ^^ Anyways, a warm welcome to you sir, and I hope you enjoy your time here. VM me if you want to chat it up sometime.

Hello there Xblade, thank you for the welcome. It's nice to have so many people stop in and say hello, thank you for taking the time to make a new member feel at home. I hope that you get a better means of posting soon so that we can RP together. Until then, maybe we can discuss ideas for RPs we might play in the future? In fact, maybe we can use this thread as a general think tank for RP ideas that people would like to try?

Any characters, settings and/or plots you've had buzzing around in your head and want to see implemented?

Nice to see the quick reply. Well, I love roleplaying Kingdom Hearts (obviously). I have been trying to brew up an RP in the KH universe, but I haven't had too much inspiration lately. Also, I haven't gotten to play 3D's yet, so I'm a little out of the loop as far as story goes. Even so, pretty much any idea involving Kingdom Hearts I can get behind. I have several KH characters ready for use, mostly dark Keybearers, as well as some others, like a Gunblade apprentice who trains under Squall.

I tend to like action-packed RPs. I live for the epic fight scenes that arise from two RPers going at it full force. I also love other aspects of RPs, of course, but it seems to me that combat is where people show their true colors. On the other hand, if someone had an idea for a low- or no-combat RP, I'm all ears. I love to try new things.

I have a Star Wars RP written that I was never able to successfully launch, if there is enough interest here I'd love to reboot it.

As for other ideas, I have hundreds... I've always wanted to do some sort of Final Fantasy RP, probably in Ivalice (Final Fantasy Tactics/A2 and Final Fantasy 12) or Eorzea (Sp?)(Final Fantasy 14). I'd love to try a World Ends With You RP as well.

One thing I've wanted to try lately is an RP where the characters start low-powered and progress over time. I realize this is probably a fairly common paradigm, but it's one I haven't had the pleasure of experiencing in forum-RP form. By "progress," I mean narrative development as well as learning new abilities (assuming the RP would make use of abilities of course). The RP would be sculpted to encourage character development. An easy example would be some sort of academy RP that follows the student's progression.

Finally, I love a good Battle RP (as you can probably infer from my second paragraph), and I find it an easy way to integrate into a new forum. If anyone is interested in battling, let me know. I'd prefer to keep it in the KH universe, but other than that I'm open to any suggestions.

Now I will reciprocate the question, Orion, but others can feel free to answer as well: Do you have any characters, settings or plots that you've been wanting to try out?

I'm currently contacting people to flesh out the setting/background for a sword-and-planet sci-fi roleplay. Tyrranical government ban on firearms and explosives force roleplayers to 'engineer' interesting technologies into more classical weapons and armour. Might even turn out something like your traditional fantasy adventure-quest roleplay, but substituted for a sci-fi setting, plus a little of the unique things that genre enables.

That's about it, right now. I've been slow in roleplaying lately. I've got an original setting, background and plot for an action-adventure science-fantasy story, but making it work for the roleplaying format is a bit hard given the scope of what's already present.

I had a TWEWY RP going, but it garnered little interest and one of the main players has dropped off KHI as a whole indefinitely.

I've been in sort of an RP slump myself, but that's one of the reasons I'm here, to try and boost my activity.

Anyway, if you're interested, I'd love to run a TWEWY RP, either a reboot of your last one or a new plot. I like creating RPs, so if you'd like I can come up with a plot for it. Otherwise we could collaboratively write something up. I'm open to anything.

Your original-setting RP sounds incredibly interesting as well and sounds like something I could get behind. I can help with world building if you would like or I can just be a player should it ever take off.

I assume that none of my other ideas resonated with you?
