i have installed a "ranking system" in our forum. your rank will go up as you post. what are the ranks, exactly? you'll just have to post to find out.
of course, my rank is Lord Aizen. *eyebrows move up and down several times*
I activated the RPG system, you can design D&D type anime characters from your profile.
i also went ahead and made Itachi of the Leaf the Game Master.
to design your character, go to your profile and click the tab "live roleplay character" just fill in the form for say, your most active character on the regular roleplay forum, your favorite character bio, or just create a new one. do not make live bios for actual trademarked anime characters. now, a bit of your live character will be displayed on your profile when you post. you can click the link "live roleplay character" from a person's post to view their character.
now, this all might be confusing. why did i do this, exactly? we were roleplaying just fine... well i did this to create a live action, turn based game on our forum, similar to Dungeons and Dragons, if you've heard of it.
anyways, you fight monsters based on dice rolls, have health points, gain experience, ect. on a grid. for more information i suggest looking it up online or PMing Itachi of the Leaf. I made him Game Master becasue i know he plays D&D and he probably knows how these things work better than i do. the whole Live Roleplay isnt quite finished yet, we still are in the process of creating say, monsters, a topic category, and such.
What is a Game Master? its who decides what monsters you fight, what items you find ect, and basicly whether you live or die. they are the supreme god, in LRP.
and remember, this LRP is a forum game, it would be categorized under games, and this does not happen in, forsay, the RP section of our forum. its simply a game where you can fight/explore/live through the boundaries of different animes, meaning, a shinobi from naruto could meet a pirate from one piece, a soul reaper from bleach could meet a shinigami from deathnote, or even a demon from inuyasha could beat the snot out of a random trainer's pokemon. (jk XD) and Itachi of the Leaf can crush you pretty much when ever he feels like it. but anyways, LRP does not happen in the timeline of our RolePlay, its simply another fun passtime on our forum.
