1  The Community / Open Discussion / Thorns and Roses on: January 22, 2013, 09:29:58 AM
At my university, I used to be a Freshman Assistant. This means I helped new students get used to college life in general. One thing we focused on was making them feel comfortable and chummy with one another, and we used games to help this process along.

Thorns and Roses is an interesting game that my fellow employees use to get to know their Freshmen better. It's voluntary, and it helped people share things that were important to them, personally.

Basically, you start off with a thorn, or something unpleasant, then follow-up with something great that happened (a rose). You can share more than one for each, but it'd be good to keep thorns to a minimum. I hope this thread helps people not only vent about their day, but to share the little things that made them happy~

I'll start.

Rose: Had some yummy sushi and miso soup for lunch. I love eating these sorts of things (*coughnotbecauseI'mAsiancough*), and I never get tired of them. I guess I like shrimp sushi the best, although I love all sorts... especially salmon.

Thorn: Haven't gotten much sleep over the last couple of days due to stress about various things. It's gonna affect my schoolwork, for sure...

Rose: Was able to spend some quality time with a friend who is like a big bro to me. We were able to share some private things about ourselves, and it was refreshing. I'm glad he was able to open up to me like that.

That'll do for now.
2  The Community / RP Section / (Sign-Ups and OOC Disc.) The Missing Children on: January 22, 2013, 09:20:50 AM
In the port town of Seaside, young children have mysteriously been disappearing over the past two weeks. Every morning, a family would wake up to find one of their children missing from their bed. Only a few leaves in their rooms left a clue as to what happened to them, but, otherwise, there was nothing. No sign of a struggle, no blood, not even a note. They were just... gone. And no one knows why.

What is this.. thing?

This is a story-based roleplay with a mystery theme. I created this in hopes of helping people learn how to roleplay in a simple, but structured story. You will create and control a character who will get involved in solving the mystery in whatever way would work in their interests. You do not have to get involved in the beginning since you all don't have to start out together, but it would be great to start off strong!

No combat experience is necessary for your character, although your character can totally have those skills. I will play the towns people and whatever else needs to be done for the story to unfold mysteriously. I know the answer to the mystery, but who knows what'll come up as we play together...?


The setting takes place in the summer of AU-our world in the 1970's, where WWII and all those terrible things did not happen. Imagine a smaller, less techy Stockholm, especially with the architecture, and then you'd get a good idea of what Seaside is like. Seaside is in a somewhat northern zone, with fairly hot summers. But, the ocean breeze helps keep the temperature down, and makes it all windy-like, especially since it's kinda up north. Overall, it's a great place for people to live, if they like seafood and the ocean.

The town, has a bustling marketplace with many specialties, but business has been going down since news of its troubles have been spreading around the area. There is a port where many ships come in and out from all sorts of locations. Because of the high amount of merchants, seamen, and travelers, there are many inns and good restaurants, as well as a good mix of cultures due to the communities (think of something like Chinatown) that live there.

There aren't that many children around nowadays, and people are generally fearful. Some families have moved out to protect their children from the threat.

There are only humans in this town. People cannot have magic, but there are some magical things that happen in the world (usually without their notice).

By the way, Seaside's signature dish is clam chowder. Yum.


There won't be that many since this is sorta meant to be a simple roleplay. But, there's always guidelines of some sort!

1. Keep in mind that some people won't be able to post as often. If they haven't done anything in a long while, something would have to be done, but if things go at a lightning pace, then try to hold back. Be patient. We all need a chance to post and keep up! :)

2. Try to keep OOC (Out of Character) discussions here! Pleeeaassseee...? It's okay to make small comments while roleplaying, but longer discussions with more than two participants should be posted in this thread.

3. When you first post, it'd be good to get a sense as to where you're starting out. There are several places you can begin (but don't be limited to these places! Seaside is a growing town, so there are many starting areas. Be creative!):
  • The port and docks
  • An inn, hotel, or tavern
  • The Town Square
  • The local elementary school
  • Just outside the town
  • (Your choice)
Please mark where you begin in your first post! I will be posting descriptions of the places I listed above in the RP thread so you aren't completely lost when choosing where to go. Creating your own place would take more work, but it will hopefully pay off!

If you want to start off with someone else, plan it with them somehow. :D I highly recommend that you start with other people, just so you are guaranteed to be roleplaying with someone (especially if I can't reply quickly enough). Plus, it's more fun!


Oh boy, the best part! Make a character to explore this interesting world! Post the following when you sign-up in this thread:

Age: You can be any age!
Appearance: This includes physical appearance, clothing, etc.
Possessions: Whether this is a hole in the ground or a gold locket, list whatever your character owns.
Occupation(s): This is optional, since not all characters need to have one.
Basic Motivation(s): If it's not spoilerific to share your character's motivation(s), then feel free to tell us!

I will probably add more on to this as I get more rest. I'm really tired. @_@ If you want, you may add on to this and be as elaborate as you possibly can.

List of people who want in

I will take as many people as I can! You don't have to get involved right away, either.

I will set-up more setting threads and whatnot if there is enough interest in this.

Hello! I was curious about this place, so I decided to register and hang around.

In terms of hacking experience... I have none. But I like people. And I love playing the game. Maybe I can be of some use in that way, haha. Anyway, I hope to get to know you all.

Fox: I saw we need an event this April Fools/Easter... because two holidays are in one, why would we not want to miss having something special? (Unfortunately, there's no one here to make an event be successful.)
March 12, 2018, 02:18:17 AM
Fox: And since that's the case...  I have thought of another fun experiment idea. - What if we had an auction on who should run this site, and waited for 10 people to bid and also for a bare minimum of 24 hours. Who would bid the highest, and how much would that bid be? - The idea is more for lulz (Maybe for April Fools?), and a theory to get an idea of how much the site might be worth as well.

Fox: Creepy, isn't it?

Fox: It's frog legs now.. It's something that's dead, but somehow still manages to wiggle.

JamietheFlameUser: I think this place is still dead.

Pkmn-Master: Lol I haven't been here in like 6 years. How is everyone?

KyleRunner: "difficult thing about the army": I'm very good at taking orders, so I don't have issues with autority or discipline. The most difficult thing is to be away from my family sometimes. I lived an entire year away from my son, so I'd say that was the most hard part by far. Now it's great!
February 19, 2018, 05:51:35 AM
Fox: I'm happy to see we have plenty of people serving the country here. :)
February 19, 2018, 05:47:15 AM
Fox: Civilian here.
February 19, 2018, 03:05:38 AM
Majora: Good for you, something to be proud of. Air Force, here
February 19, 2018, 02:11:31 AM
Fox: That's good to hear... just checking if there were any possibility of doubt. What would you say was your most difficult thing about the army?
February 18, 2018, 12:39:38 PM
KyleRunner: Well, it was a destiny kinda thing, but I was very happy when I decided to join. It was just like I thought it would be (not in the beginning, though). I'm very pleased with my decision.
February 17, 2018, 11:32:41 PM
Fox: That's awesome!  Trying to figure what question I want to ask Something about how you felt when you made the decision to do the army, and whether it was different than your expectations/etc.
February 17, 2018, 01:53:41 PM
KyleRunner: Wow... My english got rusty. Anyway... I'm in the army now. My life turned 180. But I think it was for the best.
February 16, 2018, 12:45:45 AM
Fox: Hm? So where does that make you today?
February 16, 2018, 12:06:38 AM
KyleRunner: Five years ago I could not even imagine where I am today. I hope it works well for you too!
February 12, 2018, 07:22:50 PM
Fox: 2018 - The year that I will probably be working a manufacturing job. xP What would I have thought, if I told myself this five years ago. Eh?
January 28, 2018, 08:35:28 PM
Fox: You referring to changing the PC/leader sprite to someone else? - I forgot to mention that you can do this using VBA's memory viewer. (Found under Tools.)
