Atrius: I'm trying to fix the site, but it might take a while.

It seems the SQL database had grown larger than our hosting company allows.
I've cleaned out all of the unnecessary log data to get it down to an
acceptable size, but haven't received a response as to why normal
functionality hasn't been restored yet.

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...?


Setting

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.


Guildelines

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!


Characters

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

Name:
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.

Very nice setting.  If I wasn't kinda mixed up in other things, I'd try to join.  My problem is that I'm always busy and rarely remember to check for new posts on forums, so I probably wouldn't be around enough to make it worth the time, anyways.  That said, if you really want to catch peoples' attentions, you might want to try doing something based on Golden Sun.  But overall, really good idea!  I commend you.

I am not sure about joining. I'm thinking I might mess up the story, but I guess we'll see.

I suppose I could at least participate in some minor events. So here is the character idea I have for myself.

Name: Teawater
Age: 20
Appearance: Male, white skin, dark hair (not black), grey jacket, shirt, tan jeans, white shoes, about 120 lbs, about 5'5"(?)
Possessions: Teawater (A drink that my character likes to offer to people when trying to be friendly with them.); and anything else I'm not sure about.
Occupation(s): ?
Basic Motivation(s): To make the entire world become vegetarian, just like himself. -- (Not sure if this goes here.)

I am not sure where my character will begin yet.

Remember kids! Before you go on that interview, remember to wash your hands in teawater! *Coughs on hand* (Excuse me, I just coughed up a little teawater, so they're still clean!) You wouldn't want that hiring manager to be unimpressed.

May the force be with you!
Shoo! Why does it smell in here?
Maybe that's the wrong kind of force. *smirk*

KyleRunner: The "Start In" field is not editable... I'll try making new shortcuts
May 08, 2018, 09:51:08 PM
Fox: If all else fails, you canmake new Shortcuts to do the same thing.
May 08, 2018, 09:49:53 PM
Fox: Export Properties > Shortcut (Tab) > Target / Start In ; Target (for Export) should be: (filename) 0 , and for Import: (filename) 1
May 08, 2018, 08:52:00 PM
KyleRunner: I can't change the path in properties menu...
May 08, 2018, 01:27:19 AM
Fox: You may need to edit something in properties, though... so it uses the exe file in the same directory.
May 08, 2018, 01:24:59 AM
Fox: It is suppose to be a shortcut, yes.
May 03, 2018, 11:48:05 PM
KyleRunner: Fox, the "export" function in your text editor is just a shortcut... Could you please fix it?
May 02, 2018, 09:53:45 PM
KyleRunner: I come here everyday. I'm working on a Portuguese translation, and the people here help me a lot.

Drake baku: My feel as well, I posted a little as well since my return, but silence was all that followed... At least the forum is a great source for data when hacking GS/ GS2, currently looking for something I have read a long time ago cause my PP recovery psy is not working
May 01, 2018, 09:58:04 AM
Fox: I am thinking a lot of this might be because of Discord?
May 01, 2018, 09:56:08 AM
Fox: Yeah, this forum is more dead than ever before.  February and April have 0 new topics. (All other months prior have more.) And March has lowest number of new posts. (It'd be dumb to count the very first month this site was created.)
April 25, 2018, 09:02:13 PM
Fox: Yes. The best tool is a hex editor. Well.... VBA, VBA-SDL-H, no$gba Debugger, GBATEK, and my documentation.... to use these to learn how the code/data works. Best method because it maximizes your editing ability... and then there is my program gsmagic that I was working on. Still in its early stages, though. (Even after year(s).)

Xendrox D: *exept tla editor.
April 25, 2018, 04:21:29 PM
Xendrox D: is there any other tool for hacking gs?
April 23, 2018, 09:26:27 PM
Atrius: Rarely, but not never.
April 23, 2018, 08:01:48 AM
Drake baku: Can it be, the god who created the editor, atrius. I heard you never came back online here anymore
April 20, 2018, 02:46:36 PM
KyleRunner: Atrius!!
April 19, 2018, 11:29:46 PM
Atrius: @Fox, I tried, but for some reason Mario Golf won't boot, and Mario Tennis crashes when you patch out the text compression, and I'm not sure why...  The normal text loading functions in them are basically the same as the ones in the Golden Sun games.
April 16, 2018, 07:44:36 AM
Drake baku: So it took about halve a hour of letting my lap stay off for it to suddenly work again
April 16, 2018, 07:31:28 AM
Drake baku: All of a sudden fox his editor gets errors. When trying to start it, thing worked fine yesterday...
