    Hello, Hipho, Welcome to the FFRP Subforum. If you're looking to start out in the Nexus, I would suggest throwing your character into Trog's Tavern, as it's traditional, and I believe it's even active right now. if not, I'll throw a character your way. In the meantime, I'm going to look up some of those guideline threads I know we have around here and put the links in the Nexus OOC thread for you. If you've RP'd on a board like this before, you probably have the basic idea, but they're good to look over. Cheers!

    Edit: I just realized those threads are actually the first few posts of this thread. Silly me! Do look them over, though. Thanks!

    Disclaimer: I'm not actually very good with introductions.

    I would usually skip the big introduction thread at the top of the forum and jump straight into the OOC/IC threads, but I feel that my three-year absence from the world of free-form roleplaying makes this a pretty good starting point.

    Back before all my spare time was sucked into the void of academia, I used to play lots of D&D and even a bit of White Wolf. It was around the time when 4E released that I just didn't have the time for it anymore, and the friends I used to play with sort of drifted apart after deciding they didn't like the new rule set. Thanqol, who some of you may know, was among them and he went on to play Exalted and Mage. I would have followed him, but I didn't have the time to participate in anything he was running. Those were dark times indeed.

    Anyway, while I'm open to posting virtually anywhere, there are a few particular pieces of inspiration that I feel reflect my overall style and probably provide a good bearing on where I should start:

    Planescape. Oh how I love wrapping my head around the bizarre metaphysics of this setting. I tend to play a lot of Tieflings because of the time I spent working with Planescape. I know the LA+1 made this more than a bit mechanically unfavorable for my favorite class, the Wizard, but there was always the Lesser Planetouched option when a DM felt merciful, and they still made for some very interesting characters when he didn't.

    Fullmetal Alchemist. I read the original manga but only watched the anime in bits and pieces. Watching the new one is still on my to-do list. I enjoy magic systems and the corresponding worldviews that obey their own internally consistent set of codified laws, which was epitomized by alchemy in FMA. It might just be that I've locked myself into this view from years of studying science, but I find magic without methodology and limitations to be a little uninteresting, like some kind of all-purpose plot sealant. It might even force us to break our willing suspension of disbelief if things start getting out of hand and people start trying to magic themselves out of every bad situation. I once toyed with the idea of a setting in which each arcane spellcaster had his own theory concerning the nature of magic and even though none could reach any sort of consensus on even the the most basic underlying principles, every wizard nonetheless got positive results from spellcasting within the context of his or her own worldview. Of course, this isn't appropriate for every setting. Sometimes, magic just needs to stay mysterious.

    Silent Hill 2. I love horror. Not the Steven King kind of horror in which the protagonists get pursued by slobbering movie-monsters (sorry if my generalization insulted any Steven King fans here. If it makes you feel any better, I was obsessed with the Dark Tower series for a long time), but the horror of surreality. The horror of being alone in the dark with something that hates you. I feel that the more recent games have kind of drifted away from this ideal, but that's okay. I can always replay Silent Hill 2 when I start feeling nostalgic. Honorable mention goes to the Navidson Record portion of House of Leaves.

    Neuromancer. Not really a stylistic influence, but this novel (including the two that came afterward) got me totally hooked on the cyberpunk genre. This and Deus Ex were even partly responsible for a one-off research gig I took designing a MEMS-based gasdynamic laser, which is kind of embarrassing to admit. If there are any cyberpunk threads in the FFRP forum, I'd love to see them.

    Lovecraft I actually don't like the Cthulhu mythos very much. I think it undermines some of the central themes in Lovecraft's literature. What I really enjoy is the baroque writing style he was so fond of, and the brooding, candlelit settings in which his stories take place. Also, the countless spinoffs by other authors are really quite enjoyable. Especially Neil Gaiman's short story, A Study In Emerald. That one's held the top spot on my Favorite Short Stories Ever list for several years, and it gets bonus points also because I'm also a huge Sherlock Holmes fan.

    Studio Ghibli Films. Majestic is the word that comes to mind when I think of films like Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle and Nausicaa. Spirits, traditions, exotic locales, lush, sweeping hills, winding roads and adventure. Also, moving soundtracks.

    Algernon Blackwood also gets an honorable mention alongside Lovecraft. In fact, he's probably one of my favorite writers of all time.

    <preemptive thanks for suggestions>

    There actually is an FMA RP that was started not too long ago in this section. Unfortunately it didn't really take off and is now hovering on the edge of death, but it might be at least worth a look.

    Hello, I've been kicking about these forums for a month or two after a friend invited me on here to play on one of his roleplaying games. I am interested in the Nexus roleplay. Should I first post in the sign up thread, and then the OOC thread, to figure out which thread I start in?

    The OoC thread is the place to drop in, say hello and ask for advice about where to start, yes. Nexus Character Directory is where you put your character's sheet. There's no sign-up process for Nexus, really.

    Okay, it seems the previous Bleach games are either dead, or as good as dead. With the stagnation (or lost interest towards) other roleplays I was part of, I think I have no choice but to do something about it.

    So, in case there are any players interested in building our own Gotei 13 from scratch, please take a look at this thing.

    Name of Universe: Angel Beats!
    Tag: [AB!]
    Description: Set in the universe of Angel Beats, where the high school campus resides. This is before the actual storyline, so the place is filled with Not-Yet-Dead Battlefront soldiers, and Angel's still here.
    Character limitations: No Guardskills for you. You get a simple schoolgoer with a small arms weapon. Largest weapon you can get is a sniper rifle.
    Founding player(s): PallElendro
    Other notes: Feel free to die. You'll end up in the infirmary anyway.
    Style: Action, Strategic, Anime
    What makes this different from other FFRPGs? It's a large school campus with dead people with guns and a lady with impressive powers as the anti-hero.
    Founding date: 1/27/2012 (late at night, too)

    In the AnimeitPs, it's generally an alternate universe, where the rules of the setting are the same, but all the characters are Original Characters.

    I'm a long-time FFRPer, but never before really delved into the forum aspect. I'm a quick learner, though.

    I've contemplated tossing my hat in with the Nexus crowd. I'm more for one-on-one playing, or at least smaller groups (3-4)...The huge group tends to get messy. If anyone is the same way, please feel free to PM me.

    I have a demoness who I'm currently quite fond of playing. She's of my own creation and own world.

    Whoo! I didn't know this forum had something like this.
    I've been doing statless freeform roleplays for years now, and I always love to give something new a try... I just have to select a character.

    Ok. Got one. He's built for serious RP, a Son of Anubis who has the ability to speak with ghosts. He works as a mortician (wherever that would go in the setting), and is very protective of his friends (who happen to not be living.). He also doesn't believe in his father (since he doesn't know he's actually the son of a god)
