Due to consecutive school exams and unforeseen technical problems, expect posts to be spotty and a bit random for most of this week.

I love how Spam can go from Communism to Hunger Games to Cucumber Penis Envy faster than should honestly or ethically be possible. Almost makes up for the cancer I have from it <3

Bio



╔═══════════════════════════════════════╗
║ Idea Generator ║ Professional Asian ║ Asshat Extraordinaire ║
╚═══════════════════════════════════════╝










My name is ClocktowerEchos, otherwise known as Clock or Echos. Before you ask, yes Echos is misspelled. This is totally because I did it fuck with people and totally not because I don't know good Ingrash. As a professional Asian, my Ingrash is well versed. Still learning English though, tricky language that fucker is. On a serious note, my English is a bit all over the place even though I am an ABC (American Born Chinese) since I've picked up a whole bunch of different bits from different places like books, TV, movies and just being around a diverse amount of people.

I live in the US northeast and thus in the EST timezone, although given how I life my life (read: not paying attention in class or staying up far later than I should), I can have some wonky ass online hours. That said, anything past 10:00 PM-ish and I tend to get a loopy and even derpier than normal, you have been warn. And yes, that's possible amazingly enough. As of right now in my life, I'm currently getting my ass handed to me while going through the wonderful American educational system and in the process of getting my ass shipped off to college that I got into by some miracle. (No its not Yale or some shit like that; I'm a professional Asian, not a stereotypical Asian.)

Personality wise, I've been best described as "a ball of contradictions", I'd call it some lowkey form of multiple personality but its probably more like mood swings in reality; my views and actions can vary depending on my mood. Don't worry, doesn't mean I'm going to be all sweet one second and then wanting to kill you and your family the next, its more of a slider of optimism vs cynicism (its more or less always on the cynical side as of late). I fully admit to my own flaws such as being a liar and being a hypocrite, I'm only human and accepting one's flaws makes one stronger; personal strength always triumphs over excessive safe spaces and cowering.




As of writing this (Dec. 20, 2016), I have been RPing on RPGuild for about 1.8 years (holy shit that's a larger number than I thought o_o). I have interest in a bunch of different areas but generally inhibited by my flirty interest in RPs which depends on mood and whatever captivates me at the moment. I take pride in my creativity but it seems to also have the unfortunate consequence of making me every easily influenced by neat things I see, generally on YouTube.

I have a personal fixation on Nation RPs (and even made a basic introduction guide here), having done everything from fantasy and sci-fi to World Wars-era nations and primitive Neolithic tribes. My love of NRPs stems from a love a strategy games I've played since my childhood. That said, I do RP more traditional character-drive RPs on a equal if not greater level due to how much more common they are compared to NRPs. Characters I make tend to be eccentric in one ways or another, just because I have a distaste for the generic average-antisocial-but-helps-friends-edgelord-blood-darkness-magic-katana-teenager-wanting-sexy-romance. That said, I do enjoy smut RPs whenever they pop up and catch my fancy, my favorite kind is perversion of canon types and I've been told I write good smut but that's for a 1x1 interest check to be made in the future. I enjoy deeper writing and little subtleties, if my viewing of dissection and analysis videos I watch on Youtube are anything to go off of.

In terms of GMing, whenever I get off my ass and do it, I am a hardass GM. I am not going to sugar coat it, I can get what other people consider nasty or rude or oppressive. This is because fundamentally my goals as a GM are different than that of a player and even myself when I'm just a player; if "creative freedom" is clearly leading down a path that's causing issues, than I have no qualms about heavy handing a norm in. If someone's character is clearly just shoehorned into the RP since the player just wants the character and not wanting to really form anything to the RP, than I will shoot it down mercilessly.

That said, I am more than willing to help people create characters/nations should they need help, same goes with RPing assuming that it catches my interest.

I shall be attempting to get another post up soon provided I can find the energy to do so @_@
In y'all mind if i 20 May 2017 16:46 Forum: Spam Forum
Here be an ugly lil' NS, idk about how much time I can commit so this might just end up being an NPC nation or something idk. Might work on it later on too.


@Aristo Holy hot damn that picture is awesome. As for actually trying to fit in to things, I fear they might have to be separate from most humans seeing as how they're so radically different from the current ones that I can recall (being Bretonnia and the notTuetonic Order). I would say they could be Amazons and that would also give Poo's lizardmen someone to interact with but then that brings up the issue of how and why did full plate knights come to be in a jungle enviroment which doesn't suit them at all.

Also fuck, I am now on the brink between Dwarf and Lizard again. I'll flip a coin lol.


Honestly I would say Dwarves unless you want to just be geomantic web hopping none stop; Dwarves will be having more interaction seeing as most of the people are in the "Old World".

Although now that I say that I remember the Pagan Elves and I'm not sure if in this RP @wxps350 will have them be in notNagarund or an off shoot of notAthel Loren.
@ClocktowerEchos
Since Poo is potentially taking Dwarfs I'd rather be on the safe side and go with my humans. However, since nobody is going for the whole Sigmarite Empire/>Holy>Roman>Empire thing can I have my Teutonic lads sort of take the place as the normal/average humans? Not trying to be at the centre of attention or have the most powerful spot, more trying to be there as the "base faction" like the Empire is.


Sure thing! That would be perfect actually.

TBH I think all of us, unless separate by distance or geography should have a little common history done on a piratepad or some shit.


I would say yes but I also don't want to get bogged down in the infamous NRP spiral of worldbuilding and collabs to the point that nothing actually gets done.
@Luna_Maria Random words from an old RP: Do not care about your posts.

This may sound bizarre and counter intuitive, but if your issue is that your perfectionism is leading towards writer's block, then stop caring so much about how long is has too be. Two well written paragraphs is always better than several meaningless fluff paragraphs. Care about the sum and not the parts. Care not about how people will see something short and say "oh that's bad" since at the end of the day, they aren't holding a gun to your head and saying you must write X amount or you are dead.

Lower your expectations and swallow your pride; hubris is the downfall of many things in life. RPing isn't about having quotas to fill on a timetable which is what you are making it out to be, its about just writing about fiction you find interesting. You're afraid of failing and afraid of writing something that will fail thus you don't write, you're fearing fear itself dear. Write whatever comes to your mind and post it without thinking. You cannot be afraid to make mistakes and fail since otherwise you will only ever stagnate and repeat the cycle. From my experience its always been better to trip over your toes a few times RPing and learn from it rather than being hung up on standards and not posting.

You will have good posts and you will have bad posts and sometimes you just need to make "sacrificial posts" where you do not care about what it is and just throw it out into the IC. If you are afraid of making mistakes then you will make nothing but mistakes.
I might do my variation of Dark Elves, the Pagan Elves.


They're basically Dark Wood Elves if I remember correctly?

Updated OP with simple NS guide, like super simple. Might edit it later on when its not 1AM
