As proclaimed in the great fundraiser of 2018, I am making a top roleplay listing site and you, Iwaku, get to choose it's Mascot! In the suggestion thread there was a bunch of fun ideas (and a few horrible acronyms D:<) but I narrowed it down to my ten favorites. They are all creatures I like and I can see as part of my collective.

Also, uh, most of them have wings. I guess I have a thing for birbs and birb-like critters. O_O

Anyway! FOR VOTE MANY OR VOTE FOR ONE. THE CHOICE IS YOURS.

This vote will close on update day. :D

Fine doing both! Sometimes I end up aggressive, if no one else is contributing to plot, or if there's one person I feel like is taking over, but if everyone's contributing equally to the pool of ideas, I just let them go ahead and do it.
Favorite Genres

Horror, Psychedelic, Gory (gore I can handle as long as it's not gore for gore's sake).

I don't recall who suggested Heron, but I love that, and think it would make an excellent logo.

Oh, the heron idea is lovely! It fits with the Japanese name and it isn't an overused mascot. Whoever suggested that is brilliant!

I AGREE WITH DINOFEATHERS. I love dragons, but I am starting to feel somewhat disappointed at how well it's doing as a mascot. Dragons don't... make the best cuddly mascots from what I've seen.

I play what's needed, but I do like to take the lead. In my one-on-ones, I often like being the "Game Master" in the sense of creating the setting, controlling NPCs, and steering the plot. But I still like input and collaboration from my partners. In group games, I prefer to be the GM or to play a leading or mentor role.
Favorite Genres
I love a little bit of everything. My top choices would be Horror, Modern Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Magical Realism, Noir, Steampunk, Cyberpunk, Splatterpunk, Post-Apocalyptic, Historical, Mystery, old-school High Fantasy, and Sci-Fi (especially Spacesagas). I'd love to do some occasional Clockpunk or Weird West or Wuxia or Dieselpunk, too.
Genre You DON'T Like
I guess the only thing I don't particularly care for is high school drama, and even that can be fun with a good hook.

The new site is probably not going to have a Japanese name, guys. It's going to be affiliated with Iwaku but Iwaku won't be in the name.

The poll allows multiple votes. You can also change your vote if you want to.

IT was between the Bear and Crow for me, but the crow won out.

A crow...on a website about the best places to write? Perfect. @_@

I am definitely not using random japanese words for the topsite! D:< If I could change Iwaku's name too *I would*




and before someone asks, the only reason I dont change it is because tradition and we've had it so long, it would be silly to change it now

Feeling Horror, Thriller and Psychological with creepycute shading, Fantasy (mainly medieval) and dystopian sci-fi (cyberpunk and related). I also like Historical and Modern as long as we can mix reality up a little.

Furries creep me out, and constant Angst depress me, sorry.... ah, and animals are a no go either, though I love those little critters.

I play both Passively and Aggressively. I love to come up with ideas and twists for a story and manipulate a situation, but I also love a partner who can come up with ideas. I have no problem yielding to my partners' ideas or mashing ideas together.
