Friendly reminder— it’s not poaching another RP’s playerbase if that RP has been abandoned and effectively dead!

I think I overuse progressive metal songs as themes to my roleplays, lol.

H E L L O !


If you’ve run into me before, I should probably apologize to you for some reason or another as I have a numerous amount of bad habits on RPG including my disposition, perception, and generally inconsistency in activity. I don’t mean to, of course, but from what people have told me I have sort of gathered a reputation onsite after a number of years of interacting with the community at large. If you haven’t— thank circumstances and hello!

I’ve been roleplaying since 2001, starting off on a number of Sonic the Hedgehog message boards a little after the big internet revolution that shifted from basic user groups to dynamic forum formatting. It is due to this that I sort of feel like I know what I’m talking about when it comes to play-by-post roleplaying. It also sometimes translates to me being perceived as a pretentious elitist jerk, which is only one percent of the truth. I joined RPG prior to “Guildfall” in the winter season of 2012 – 2013, though I was made aware of the site for a bit longer by a friend of mine.

I’m a multi-faceted writer who can fit any category, but I have the most fun in detail-oriented efforts in the casual and advanced sections.

Roleplaying is a social hobby, so as it would happen there are people that I like working with in spades. They also happen to people I consider my peers and my closest friends onsite. If I forgot to mention anyone, talk to me more.

I'm hardcore and will still sitck around.

While I am hardly "hardcore" as long as my squaddies are around I'll still be in it.

@Gowi So... is there an ETA on the first IC post?



Possibly a few days after when I have all current applications in and reviewed. The OOC revisions might have to take a backseat so I can get said reviews over with though.
Yeah, a PM might be a good idea to start from since we both have interest checks to use to cross reference.

I’ve sort of been doing this “writing with people on the internet” thing for way too long to be proud of. That’s not a jab at this shared hobby of ours, but just a weird sort of way I look at how I’ve sunk a lot of time into practically the best hobby ever. For most of you, you guys know me as Gowi and I like to write anything from slow-paced to mid-paced in a multitude of genres with a variety of ideas. I’m generally partial to small-to-large groups but I’m no alien to 1x1’s.

I’m not impartial toward any sort of genre as I take the approach of going into a setting with an open mind. I love character creation, world-building, character development, narrative strength, proving the trope can be written well, and having a taste of every cake on the dinner table.

Most importantly before you proceed you should know my central roleplaying credence—

Roleplaying should focus on developing interesting and complex characters that become part of plot-lines which catch the imagination and inspire the writer behind them to exercise creativity. It is mature, humorous, imaginative, tragic, terrifying, passionate, and rife with descriptive language and characters with real personality and relatable cares. Quality posting is far better than needless novels, yet one should never neglect detail when one feels the need. However, while word and paragraph requirements ought to be unnecessary, single paragraphs cannot contain enough detail to suffice.

My writing level is “casual” to “advanced” and I can write solid paragraphs and dialogue depending what is needed or how my creativity is flaring. Depending what the scene is and what I’m given you can get something short or something long. I can write characters of either gender /sexuality, it really doesn’t matter to me. After a while writing female characters, adolescents, elders, and stuff in-between I like to think I’m a fairly decent writer all-around when it comes to identity.

I’m also indifferent towards taboos, I’ve written a lot of those and deconstructed a lot of things regarded as the “norm”.

My schedule fluctuates and varies on my workload for group RPs and real life responsibilities—but I won’t abandon you unless complete interest has dropped and if that happens I will let you know where I stand to see if we can direct the RP before disbanding it. My timezone is -4 UTC aka EST.

With that in mind, I’m set to invisible so people don’t consistently harass me; there is a difference from reminding me that it’s been a week or so without a post and its another to presume myself being online requires me to give you my attention exclusively. It is good to remember I have other friends, RP priorities, and hobbies. With that in mind, I will do my best to be cordial and respectful towards you as my partner so give me the same rope.

Ultimately, here are some key notes— I prefer to RP through threads, I don’t do shameless smut yet am not afraid of mature themes, I expect to get what I give on an average rate, and I am pretty flexible. If you prefer to drive the plot, want to have equal leadership, or myself to drive it please let me know so neither of us come in with fickle presumptions.

The problem with me is I’m generally “down” for all flavors of genre, theme, and narrative. I like plots that are imaginative, heartfelt, adventurous, suspenseful, clever, gripping, and fun. I am not looking for a RP that has all of the above, so keep in mind to catch my attention somehow.

As long as it’s not tasteless erotica-tier smut.

I’m equally as invested in original concepts, intriguing interpretations of official works, or by the cusp “pretty much fanfiction”. I prefer original characters, but I am always down for interpreting a classic canon as long as I’m familiar with them— if I’m not I might make it a bit wildly different. But then again I might make it wildly different if I know the source material just the same, haha. You can hook me with anime, video games, literature, cinema, and all sorts of fun shit. Surprise me.

Currently any plots I have will be in hiders and any moodlets will be in the quote above. If it is blank I am either lazy or up for whatever.
