I was thinking one where the world is seemingly at peace, but the crows and ravens have been plotting against the owl kingdoms (along with other animals).

Anyone interested?

((I'll be using Horus, possinly Gwendolyn and if it comes to it, Rakka))

Yep! (since you're continuing the War Begins, you might want to change the opening post a little. XD)

I'll use Gynotic. (his RP was deleted because nobody had answered. ._.)

He's a hagsfiend, so I think he'd fit. X3

I think I'll toss Drakos in here. I like Malay Eagle owls, and so Drakos is one. X3

I dunno, we could call it the Black Cloud, referring to hoards and hoards of blackbirds moving like a storm to destroy the owl kingdoms. And as I am continuing The War Begins, once they're approved I'll be using Fern and Basil.

Just a few notes...I really don't think we should have magic in this one. I mean, Fern and Basil see strange scenes of the futur/present with their two blind eyes put together (only occasionally), but I mean, that's like the Web Reader Rabbit or Fire Reading. I think we should leave out the Dream World, spells, that whole bit. It always seems to eventually get out of hand, overused, and the plot swerves way past where it was supposed to be.

Anyone else agree?

Yes, I agree.

The reason I created the Dream World in the first pplace was so that there would be a place in dreams- so that I could create a whole plot point with a few subplots in of itself. It was supposed to be big,, but then there were also spells, which were only meant for defense. There wasn't supposed to be any huge spells, like voodooing 40 Dream Killers, just little spells, like blocking fire, and creating forcefeilds.

Okay, I should have that cleared up enough. Anybody who needs more explination, just PM me. ^^

So yeah. But what about mental kung fu kind of stuff? Razz
Yeah, I always like including stuff like that, like reading minds, but not magic. I just like having that as a little convienience. XDDDD
But no magic, still. That's the only bit I'd like even if Gynotic is a hagsfiend...
And his name was moddled after the word 'genetic'. XD

I would use Yozak, but she's in another RP, and i'm not sure if we can use our owls in more than one RP at a time and she's my only character.

:/

You can't use one charrie in two RP's (unless there's chronological difference, of course), but you can have more than one. Go ahead and make another if you'd like.

Anyone else thinking of joining the new RP?

He was a bit tempermental...though I do get really peeved when people godmod.

So everyone knows, godmodding is:

Making anyone's character besides your own do something without blatant permission. If the person who has the character wants something to happen to the charrie or wants the charrie to do something, you cannot make the character do otherwise.

EX of one that many people are confused whether or not is godmodding:

RPer 1 is Paul
RPer 2 is John
Harkov belongs to no one; stock bad guy

RPer 1:
Paul saw General Horkov on the battlefield. Harkov turned and saw him, and suddenly revenge flashed in his eyes. With a great howl, Harkov charged him, spear aimed at Paul.

RPer 2:
John watched as Harkov charged Paul, and ran between them, stabbing Harkov beneath the ribs.

In this case, it IS godmodding, because RPer 1 was going to engage in battle with Harkov when RPer 2 came inbetween the action and stopped it from happening. However, if RPer 1 had PMed RPer 2 and told him to do that, that is perfectly fine.

Another confusing example:

RPer 1:
Paul lay, almost motionless on the bed. A horrid stab wound had found its place in his stomach.

RPer 2:
John came forward and applied herbs from the sage up north to the woulnd before closing it with stitches. Everyone surrounded Paul, gazing down on him hopefully.

In this case, it is NOT godmodding; if the RPer wants Paul to die, they can still do that. Now, had it said that John declared Paul would live, or if it said Paul suddenly got up and began to run laps, then THAT would be godmodding.


It gets annoying for everyone when there's godmodding. AW, when you claimed that Rakk would be okay, that was godmodding but I dealt with it. However, who knows; I may have wanted to kill him. THAT'S why it'd be considered godmodding. If a character is commiting an action and you do something to restrict that, then it can be considered godmodding. There is always a way to do something without restricting what another person wants to do.

NOW, if a person does not say what they want to do and someone does something so they cannot do it, that is not godmodding. There are too many possibilities; maybe RPer 1 in the first example wanted no one to do anything and to have Merlin randomly pop in and heal him. Since John already did this (just go along with it, I have no better examples), Merlin wouldn't have been able to do it himself. This is NOT godmodding; it's a random chance event and no one else would have predicted it to happen, therefore it is not godmodding. RPer 2 would have had no idea to know he was restricting anything.

--------------------

...we clear? Very Happy
