MONSTER HUNTER WORLD

Starfall


Music for your reading pleasure!

The Elder Crossing brought us here to the New World, but the promise of adventure will keep us here for a lifetime!

Every one hundred years, we stand witness to another crossing, one of cosmological proportions. Prismata's Comet, a shining star that streaks across the sky for weeks on end. Whenever it passes, it imparts on us a beautiful once-in-a-lifetime display: a shower of starlight that rains down to the earth.

It has been a century since the comet's last visit, and this time, the Prismatic Starfall has left us with more than a light show. Reports from our field scouts verify that a meteor has crashed somewhere north of the Everstream, deeper into the New World than we've dared to travel...
Until now, get out there hunters!





Hello! I'm looking for players who are familiar with the Monster Hunter universe to play a story-driven roleplay set in Monster Hunter World's "New World" continent. While familiarity with MHW and MHW: Iceborn in particular aren't needed, a general understanding of how Monster Hunter games operate would be very useful. Of course there will be giant weapons and even bigger monsters!

MHW: Starfall will take from the MH games everything that makes for good roleplaying and world building, but we won't be taking any gritty gameplay mechanics such as weapon and armor stats, weapon sharpness, or inventory count. I want everyone to feel free to use any weapons and armor they want without it impeding the roleplay, so most of those choices will be flavor over function. Additionally, you can even play as a wyverian or lynian if you'd prefer instead of human.

OOC is here!

Man I have been bombarded with cool interest checks lately. Do you mind if I ask what your posting expectation is? Length and frequency?

Hey! I'm glad my check is considered that good, thanks!

As for post length, I'd rather you post well-written content that makes sense, rather than fill some kind of quota. I don't expect people to meet some kind of "X paragraphs per post" thing. Quality over quantity to me means that if it makes sense to write a short post, then you shouldn't fluff up the length of the post with nonsense. Something like back-and-forth dialog, or actions in combat, or posts where you want to give other players the chance to say/do something before moving on, all require shorter posts on average, sometimes even only one or two lines. On the contrary, if you want to be very detailed about something or just have a lot to say or do, or are setting a scene or establishing something about the scene, then by all means write as many paragraphs as you want. TLDR: post what feels right, and write well instead of writing more.

Post frequency I think is something that the whole group should come together to decide. I'm willing to post multiple times a day, but for some people that'd simply too often for them to respond and they shouldn't be punished for it.

You had me as soon as the Monster Hunter national anthem started playing through my speakers.

So will we get to see monsters introduced in Rise as well? Completely new monsters and/or variants/subspecies/rare species of existing monsters? I'm fine with the Iceborne roster, but I'm curious.

Been looking for a MonHunt RP. Will we also get to have out Palico's with us, possibly even playing as Palicos, or hunters only?

I haven't gotten to play MH Rise yet, since I mostly do PC gaming, so I'm not familiar with the new monsters there. But I don't see a problem with them showing up down the line once I get familiar with the game.

You can play as a hunter, a hunter/palico pair, or just a palico. Any way you want to play is fine.

@HEAVY METAL
No discord, just play-by-post here on RPG.

Dope. I'll likely make a Hunter/Palico pair.

How hardcore will you be in regards to stuff like combat difficulty and inventory? In particular, I plan to play a Heavy Bowgunner, so do I need to worry about keeping track of all of my ammo and supplies to make more ammo? Additionally, what are you thoughts about "custom" equipment? For example if I wanted to make a special bowgun that doesn't specifically exist in the games (namely by using a specific set of ammo types).

I haven't seen the movie but just from the trailer I can assure you it's not accurate to the games. So much so that I'm not sure if this rp would make much sense to you.

@Lucius Cypher
No you don't need to keep track of any of that stuff. Don't worry about getting too nitty gritty about it.

Haven’t played Monster Hunter in a while. Might have to reinstall it.
Get back into swinging the old switch axe around.
