Picture Based Roleplay




Welcome to the medieval kingdom of Rosella, a nation which’s inhabitants range from mischievous pixies to hardworking, studious dwarves. Surrounded by forests, one of the nation’s top sources of income is hunting. Adventurers journey from all corners of the world to experience the continent’s vast landscape and diverse terrain. Jump into the fray and experience life as an explorer.

Take a look at the characters tab if you want to create a picture profile.

@Amastacia: I used a selection tool to erase the background around my avatar then set her over a transparent layer. If you'd like, I can transform your avatar image into a transparency. I can also add a speech bubble.

One last thing, I suggest making a working template file. I have a file with my character's avatar/speech bubble set over a transparent background. I'm able to insert background images behind my avatar/speech bubble since the file's a transparency. I'm using Gimp. The program's really easy to use.



Note: all layers are transparencies.

Quick Tip: You can save other people's posts onto your computer to use their backgrounds. I typically have a blank image of the background I'm using in my posts. It makes it easy for characters to gather in the same place.

I'm going to be offline for a few hours tonight. Leave a message if you have any questions.

I'll be making my first IC post soon! A question pertaining to future posts though: Is this intended to be entirely dialogue based, or will we be writing narrative descriptions as well? And if we are writing descriptions, are we doing it in the same visual novel fashion or just in plain ol' text?

I suppose we could make narrative posts with speech bubbles sans avatars. Initially, this was intended to be dialogue focused, but I don't mind bringing in narration.

It's easy to upload one image, so I stack multiple pictures in one file for posts.

If anyone needs help setting up their character + speech bubble transparency, feel free to message me (PM is fine), and I can make it for you.

Alright, after toiling for about an hour thirty with some browser based photo editing thing, I got my transparency set up lol. Should pump out a sheet here shortly.
