[RP] Eva Summer Vacation Sign-ups + Discussion!

The Summer season is quickly on its way, and many of us have already started our vacations. Thus, and Evangelion-themed thread-based RP is in order!

Being that this is Summer vacation, and based off past trends of dead RP threads, this game itself will only last the summer and will probably end once the fall semester starts up. This promises a quick, plot-centered story that (should) rarely get off track and keep things interesting throughout.

Just to make sure, the role of Game Master will be instituted (probably played by myself, but we'll see how things go), and he'll make sure the plot goes in the right direction and provide the basis for the story. In the event that somebody fails to post within a reasonable time, the Game Master will also "God mod" the character into a position where he/she is no longer critical to the plot until a time comes when the player resumes regular posting. Lastly, the Game Master will be in control of NPCs that are significant to the plot. All other NPCs (eg, random nobodies) are still free game for the players when needed.

The intention of this RP is somewhat of a mystery/drama/comedy story featuring the Eva characters on Summer vacation. It will generally be a fun, not-so-serious themed game, but it will have its dramatic moments, being that it is a Summer mystery. Anyways, enough of me talking, here's the premise:

The class of 2-A wins a Summer vacation trip to a resort on an island off of Okinawa, all expenses paid. Everybody is excited about going, however Nerv is a little concerned about all the potential pilots and actual pilots leaving altogether to some mysterious island, so Misato, Kaji and a few other employees go along with the students under the guise that they are vacationing with them, but are really there for the students' protection. As suspected, weird things start happening, and the real mystery begins.

The characters, of course, will include all of the canon Class 2-A students, Misato, and Kaji. Once these roles have been filled up, requests can be made for other characters to come too (within reason), or for original characters to be made.

Game Master: Eric Blair

Required Characters:

Shinji Ikari: Eric Blair
Asuka Langely Soryu: Legendary
Rei Ayanami: Sailor Star Dust
Hikari Horaki: Seele00TextOnly
Toji Suzuhara: Legendary
Kensuke Aida: GoatMan
Misato Katsuragi: fadingreminder
Ryoji Kaji: Eric Blair

Optional Characters:

Kaworu Nagisa:
Ritsuko Akagi:
Maya Ibuki: Seele00TextOnly
Mokoto Hyuga:
Shigeru Aoba: ran1
Mari Illustrious Makinami (No Spoilers):

Original Characters (preferably 2-A students, but there are exceptions):

Katsuko Kotonoha: Sachi
Raidon Watanabe: GoatMan

Last notes concerning characters: certain characters, despite having been taken already, can still be requested if someone really wants to play that character. If you want any character that has already been taken, just ask and we'll see how things goes.

If we do get the all the roles filled, we should be able to start up the game within the next week, and by then I should have more of the plot worked out. If anybody has any questions or comments regarding the RP, this is the place to ask.

Some questions for Sachi:

There's going to be a separate thread for the actual RP, yes?

About how long will the RP last for? Something like starting next week and ending on August 30th?

What will be done if people don't post (and I don't mean not posting for a day or so, but neglecting the thread for a week-plus)? Will their characters be written out pf the story or dropped/up for grabs?

The mystery will be intriguing enough to keep people interested in the thread itself I'm sure. BUT if subplots/etc start to form (within reason I mean. And just to note, something like somebody figuring out the mystery within a day and then "Oops, RP's over." would just be lame.), that's okay too, right? Can gameplay still occur (random in-character screwing around or interactions back in Tokyo-3 for example) even if the strange goings-on is figured out, or should this be one of those stories where once the conflict is resolved, that's when the story ends?

I ask because while a good story is always nice, openendedness especially for RPs are important since it's supposed to be about having fun.

That seems to be the routine, so it's only natural.

About how long will the RP last for? Something like starting next week and ending on August 30th?

What will be done if people don't post (and I don't mean not posting for a day or so, but neglecting the thread for a week-plus)? Will their characters be written out pf the story or dropped/up for grabs?

I answered these questions in the OP, however I will clarify if I wasn't clear.

The RP will probably start sometime this weekend, and will wrap up around the time the Fall Semester/new school year begins, so, yes, around the end of August.

The Game Master will take care of situations where a player fails to post within some set amount of time. While it will be a case by case thing, it will generally involve the Game Master taking control of the character (God Modding, per se) and working with the character enough to clear him or her from the main focus of the story until the original player returns, a replacement player is found, or for the remainder of the story.

The mystery will be intriguing enough to keep people interested in the thread itself I'm sure. BUT if subplots/etc start to form (within reason I mean. And just to note, something like somebody figuring out the mystery within a day and then "Oops, RP's over." would just be lame.), that's okay too, right? Can gameplay still occur (random in-character screwing around or interactions back in Tokyo-3 for example) even if the strange goings-on is figured out, or should this be one of those stories where once the conflict is resolved, that's when the story ends?

I ask because while a good story is always nice, openendedness especially for RPs are important since it's supposed to be about having fun.

Sub-plots are totally okay -- welcomed, even. Being that this is a "summer shenanigans" RP, fun is expected to be had (eg, shipping drama, summer adventures, etc). This is summer vacation; anything can happen. The mystery aspect will simply be an overarching thing while the sub-plots happen within it.

Realistically, the students shouldn't be doing anything directly related to the mystery until after a week or two (in game) of being on the island so that they can finally start to notice the strange things. Meanwhile, they can do fun, summer stuff on the beach or whatever.

Sorry. This Shinji is not going down that road because I will try to keep him in character.

He will ogle, he will get flustered, teased and probably bloody nosed (both due to girls in bikinis and redheads punching him for being a perv), but he will not have sex. Go look elsewhere for instant gratification GGSS.

Aoba: I could do without the sex, because it appears my potential partners would either be of my own sex, potentially too clingy, or get me convicted of statutory rape.

If Maya decides to drop by however... Groupie tiem. :w00t:

I would be interested in playing the role of Mokoto Hyuga but I will be going away for probably 3 weeks in total on and off over the summer holidays... Plus with revision for exams until the end of this month = /

Will that kind of get in the way of things? Or is there a way to work around this without me being dropped completely?

I am under the assumption that there are no canon characters left, so would an ACC be OK this time around? My character is a bit too old for Class 2-A (at 16 years old) but I could always say that she got to Okinawa some other way. Is that OK with you guys?

Most happenings rpg wise will probably happen in the rpg channel, either egf-rpg or a specially created channel by sachi himself. Being on-line for irc rpg shouldn't be a requirement but Sachi as GM has the last call.

Whoever wants to play should mention it here beforr Friday since the rpg starts on the weekend.

Play mechanics will be winged as the necessity arrives.

Yes, that might be somewhat of a problem. Although, since, based off of what you said, it seems like it won't be a consecutive three weeks; checking in every once in a while is okay, as long as you don't get your character caught up in crazy shenanigans before you go.

Or you can make her two years younger for sake of convenience. Since this isn't a completely serious thing, you won't have to worry about permanently changing your character (kind of like Eva --> Angelic Days).

Lolwut? Sure, we'll probably screw around in the rpg channel, and get a few ideas, but generally all material related to the RP will happen in the designated thread. People don't have to worry about having to make an IRC client just to keep up with the going-ons of the RP. Being gone for a few days at a time isn't a big deal (I don't expect people to make a post every single day), and the thread will be around for everybody to read if they need to catch up.

What I mean is, just like the other rpg, most happenings for the characters already chosen will probably happen in the rp chan, unless we restrict interaction to thread form; my comment was mainly in the way we used to play before, Goatman was a channel usual, but we managed to do enough and keep it open for him to post as well.

Well? :asuka_miffed:

I understand that you're busy, but now I personally won't have time to post until maybe next weekend since this past weekend was the only time I had to myself. (I have to work on final projects for classes this week.)

Couldn't you have at least made a post if things would be delayed? ^^;
