Hihi! So Prinzack and I have come up with a plethora of roleplays as of late.
Right now, we've been fiddling with something that we've based off of HM/RP.
Right now, we've been fiddling with something that we've based off of HM/RP.
The plot isn't quite fleshed out but the idea is that we have our goddess of the nearby forest, Dia, who basically grants wishes and keeps monsters at bay but due to declining faith, her power is waning. To add to this, we have a warlock named Kaiser who's our main antagonist and he lives in the dying part of the forest. He's trying to take the goddess' position as the main deity, so he's doing as much as he can to cause monster attacks in town and to cause disbelief in the goddess. Because she hasn't been around for a while, the latter isn't too difficult. She's a very reclusive goddess. (She's shy and doesn't understand humans very well.) Nobody really takes Kaiser seriously though when he says things like he's going to take over the town or that he's the one responsible for a large portion of the monster attacks near town. We haven't gotten much past that, though. The name of our current village is Juniper. We may add another village just for kicks depending on the population of the RP I guess?
As mentioned in the first post, we have NPC characters who Prinzack and I will play. They're your typical store-owners n' things.
However that's not to say you can't also work at these places IC.
Juniper Town Hall and Library:
Mayor Lexi Laskaris, Recordskeep Ilta Kissaelain and Sorceress Yue Xiang
Waiter Lear Walker and Barkeep/Cook Abraham Higgins
Innkeep Matthieu Kisling
Rosemary General Store:
Shopkeep Erick Prinet and Accountant Olivia Prinet
Doctor Solenne Prinet
Priest Lukas and Nun Bianca Lavellan
Goddess Dia Galatea
Warlock Kaiser Galanos
As far as other blurbs, we have a lot already typed up. I'll put it in a spoiler too because it's quite a bit.
(This is taken from a test thread elsewhere. It's subject to change but is overall accurate to what we want to do.)
"Villagers" and "Travelers"
In the village of Juniper you may either become a Villager or a Traveler.
What's the difference?
While you are free to "walk-in" and roleplay as you please day-by-day, you may also submit a profile and commit yourself to the thread. Travelers are our walk-in roleplayers and Villagers are the committed. For the sake of ease, Travelers are by no means homeless and may either stay with Villagers or at the Inn for as long as they please. Villagers, of course, may own land outside of town or within it, depending on the nature of their lifestyles. Both Villagers and Travelers are encouraged to create a "diary" but it isn't required for roleplay.
Becoming a Villager is easy and Travelers may do so at any time. You may also begin your adventure as a Villager. All you need to do is fill out the skeleton below!
Please submit your Villager "applications" to either Prinzack or Shotokeki.
[BCOLOR=#800000]TIP:[/BCOLOR] If you're planning on being a walk-in, maybe check the map for ideas on your character background!
Diaries are player-created
test threads(probably blog posts on this forum) that document their daily happenings and may be updated as often as the player sees fit. Diaries are not required but are a fun way to let other roleplayers take a peek at your character's innermost thoughts -- provided you've left it someplace they can find it!
They can also act as a sort of inventory, detailing what crops and materials you've grown and sold. (This doesn't need to be made public but can be helpful in keeping track of what you have.)
Diaries may also be used to show your character's levels of affection and thoughts about other characters. This is encouraged for those who seek relationships of all sorts in other characters!
If you intend to let other roleplayers access your diary, please try and keep it tidy. Otherwise, give in to the method of your madness!
How to "Farm"
Farming is the second-most major aspect of the Harvest Moon universe! You aren't required to farm specifically and may choose another profession instead. However, if you'd like to grab a hoe and go at it, be our guest! (Please refer to this page for available crops and growing seasons.)
Please be considerate and keep in mind that we will not heavily monitor how many crops you "grow" or "sell". As long as you keep your harvests in moderation and within reasonable amounts, we won't have a problem. You may grow anything you desire as long as it's within the appropriate seasons. (You can't grow tomatoes in Winter, for example, but you can grow Buckwheat.)
[BCOLOR=#800000]NOTE:[/BCOLOR] Other occupations that are available will either be posted on the bulletin board in the town square, or you can go and seek your own professions. Please also keep these within reasonable boundaries. (You can't be the business owner of a large chain in a small town unless you're travelling.)
We also will not monitor how much money you've accumulated or how rich your character is but again, as with everything else, please be reasonable. We will not deny you such things as a great harvest or sale streak but those aren't things that happen very often in reality.
Passage of Time and Festivals
Time will pass as you roleplay with others inside the world. Time is GM Monitored and comes in one week intervals which will be displayed on the first post of the active roleplay thread. (This one!)
Most festivals will not require GM intervention but some are time specific and these will also be posted along with the in-world date and time as they near the date of the event. If you wish to participate in time specific events, please try to be on to roleplay during these times. The real-world date and time will be provided for you.
(We aren't sure how we're going to do this or if we're going to do it at all, but we still intend for the NPCs to be considered other characters to RP with.)
Explanation of Rune Points (RP)
Rune Points (RP) are given to active and enthusiastic roleplayers! RP can be used for various GM Meta Favors but are mainly used for NPC courtship. You can either attempt to woo one of our twelve existing NPCs, or you can even try to get them to woo each other!
RP can be used at the Goddess' Pond in the form of a wish. Certain favors require more or less RP than others and are not always going to work. Some things are more or less reasonable than others and are left up to GM digression. Answers to wishes will come in the form of visits from the Goddess. Any wishes that aren't granted will not take up existing RP.
Please detail the exact "wish" in a spoiler at the bottom of your post and keep the "wish" in roleplay.
Also, here's our current Bulletin Board that we'll be using at the beginning of the RP.
