Have you ever thought "Boy, i really want this kind of RP, but i just can't be bothered to run it?" I find myself sat, thinking that a lot. So, i check in every so often, hoping to god that someone has made something along those lines. Usually it's a case of "I have a character i'd love to play, but there just isn't an RP going around that they would fit into, and i don't have enough of an idea for the story of an RP to make an Interest Check and run it myself."

Am i the only one who does this? If not, why not have a "Tag when you want a specific RP, but can't be bothered to make it yourself." thread?

Y'know, for the longest time I was always in the mood for a Yugioh roleplay, even if they looked like a trainwreck. I couldn't actually be bothered to run one after Duel Tower scarred me for life. (outriders? what about outriders? never heard of it.)

Somewhere last year, though, I realised "wow, I really don't like YGO as a game anymore" and like an on/off switch I immediately lost all interest in ever RPing it again. So kind of like the exact opposite of the thread's conceit.

As for something I actually am down for, though? For some reason I've been wanting to RP magical girls for the longest time, but not a whole lot of magical girl RPs show up over time. (I realise I am in one. Still would like some more.) Specifically dark magical girl stories with all that edge to them, like the entire subgenre of trash that spawned in Madoka's wake. For some reason I just want to indulge in the fantasy of characters suffering for no other reason than they made a series of poor decisions coupled with extraordinarily unfortunate circumstances.

I'd also like just a JRPG-like adventure, which aren't too common around these parts either.

Good luck getting me to GM anything though lmao

@Ammokkx Yeah, Yu-Gi-Oh! RP's are great in theory, but in practice, you find a lot of problems, specifically, you have 1 of 2 directions to take Duels in:

1) Make everyone play on the honour system
The problem with that is that you really need to have a pre-determined winner, or the duels just won't end, or someone will power-play to instantly win.

2) Play them out using Dueling Network
Which sounds good in theory, but then you realize that Yu-Gi-Oh! as a game is one of the most horrifically imbalanced mainstream games, meaning that one person in the game is guaranteed to have the most competitive deck (Even if it isn't actually competitive, but it's still the most viable one) meaning that there is no reason they would ever lose. Meaning that, most games force you to either play a competative deck (instead of something you'd ACTUALLY want to play) Or just accept that you will never win a single game throughout the RP.

I've tried to run a couple over the years, but they never work out. The only one i can think of that would work would be something like GX season 3, crossed with Digimon, where player use their creatures to fight each other.

I guess if I had to pick it'd be Tabletop or an Isekai style RP.

I've really been wanting to do a space opera roleplay lately. Something in the "motley crew journeys around space" subgenre. Sort of cliché, but I've been craving it.

Hmm? well that is a curious question I would be happy to answer. Well .. I am in a positive roleplaying mood. I would have loved to do a small group of either one or two people with a Middle ages, Viking or a Dark ages roleplay with someone of advanced roleplaying skills where I was either the King or Queen. I would have liked to do that on the threads.

@Andreyich

Hit me up if you want to actually launch one sometime.

I played the hell out of the old West Coast ones and Tactics.

California, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, and then a little bit in Florida.

Had an RP I ran twice set in Florida, before F3 came out, about the Eastern BoS invading a semi-built up Florida in their search to gather up technology and hunt down a certain bit of rumored tech.

We could probably come up with something.

Would the grinding be as dreadful as the game's?

Probably, but I don't have the time to put the effort into making a Disgaea RP myself. I will say though that I liked the first Disgaea more than the rest. I'd likely base it in that point in the in-game universe. buuut in reality I dunno.

It's a bit weird because I haven't played in one for so long, but I'm really feeling the urge to play in something sci-fi for a change. I've always wanted to do something set in Ian M. Banks's Culture universe, maybe I will next time I get my ass round to GMing something.
