I really enjoyed EE, and after finding out it was based on an rp, I felt kind of inspired to make characters with these kinds of rules and campy personalities. I hope someone else does, to.

The premise would just be a high school club for people with Epithets. They work on developing their abilities, which conviniently creates a lot of room for exposition. There wont be any adventures or large scale battles unfortunately; just normal superpowered high-schoolers trying to figure out how to live their lives in an unfair world.

I want the rp to be mostly character focused. Anyone interested should spend an hour or so at least just thinking about who their character is and what struggles they should be trying to overcome. Important note here: the conflict will all be eternal or interpersonal, and because conflict is what creates a good story, everyone should focus on making characters with these conflicts baked in. I imagine each character should have a rough sketch for how their arch will turn out throughtout their days in the club.

Respones would be as short as 3 sentences to as long as 4 or 5 paragraphs, depending on context. If any violence happens, go ahead and pm whoever else is involved and discuss how the fight will end and how much people will get hurt before hand, so people know what to expect and how to navigate the event. Otherwise navigating a combat scenario with no rules will likely result in someone being upset.

If anyone doesn't know the rules to EE, this is the document that the original players made while playing. We arent using this to rp, but rules about how the world works are baked into this document, so skimming relevant sections can be helpful. Character creation in particular has a lot of helpful information.

docs.google.com/document/u/0/d/1FDjPz…

Remember, we arent using this ruleset per se. You can just choose an epithet you want, for example. But this is the document they used to make the show, so giving it a look over helps to contextualize some things.

Note: Im new here, so if anyone with more experience could help run this or even just direct me to some good rescources I'd really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

I'm quite the fan of Epithet Erased too as I like how the world revolved around how some people are basically being born with super powers based on words. When I discovered that it was based on a RP and they streamed it before, I quickly jumped to Twitch to see more content related to it. But said got a bit sad when I learned that they took most of the full videos of the Anime Campaign off Twitch as it would contain spoilers, but the short clips still remain and are very funny. If anything, I was pondering myself as to the idea of a Epithet Erased RP, but it would be a typical medieval fantasy setting. This is probably mostly due to D&D being one of my hobbies and recent anime I watched.

So the idea of RP involving this setting sounds okay and interested in giving it a try. But before deciding anything else, I am curious about what rules from the document should we be more aware of and what will be used if we were to play here? Although, I've tried skimming through this same document before when I searched for in the Anime Campaign wiki. So I may need some more time to read before asking anything specific from it.

@Expolar
The rules document explains some rules for how epithet powers work in general. Theyre less rules to rp by in this case and more a way to get a "feel" for how character creation should work.

Hi there! Never heard of EE or Anime Campaign, but this idea sounds light and fun!
I don't have much GMing experience, but adapting your own Character Sheet template is much more player-friendly.


Look any good to you?

@Pumkinswift, I'd be very interested!

I've got some GMing experience but I have unstable mental health that makes it better for me to be a co-GM rather than a full GM. Gonna get working on a character.

Hello. I myself haven't seen the show Epithet Erased yet but I have watched several sessions of Anime Campaign off Jello's channel and I must admit the world and antics they brewed were quite enthralling.

As far as running an rp is concerned I've some experience both as a GM and a co-gm so I may be able to offer some assistance in that regard if you're interested. Either which way I'm quite interested and I've already got a couple characters in mind who'd fit the bill quite nicely. Just a couple of old favorites of mine which have never gotten a proper shot at this rp business. One's quite silly but with a somewhat darker backstory while the other one is more serious but has a tamer, more suburban background. Neither one's lives are perfect but they are a reasonable mix of dark undertones and fun potential for character growth and interaction.

I just gotta decide which I'll bring out here.

I've got an interest in Epithet Erased. Admittedly I had been planning on running my own plot/RP before I saw this and was worried that I would be ripping it off, haha. Would it be alright if I were to run my own? I just don't want to step on your toes by any means.

Do whatever you want. If you have a different premise for an rp, go ahead and run it.

Here's my CS for Babble. I modified the CS Metamore was kind enough to provide and added in some facets of the Anime Campaign document, listing certain stats more as guidelines rather than hard mechanics. A rough approximation of her design as translated out of an rpg context into a forum based free-form RP format.
