Sister Area Information for accepted characters: Original Character Playboards

Do you have a Character (Otaku or otherwise) in mind that you love but you just can't figure all of them out? You are working on their profile, but you're just not exactly sure how their personality works, or specifics of their past that could have made them the way you imagine them, and so you want to test them out before you settle on a personality for them, but can't actually test them out anywhere without having that pesky profile approved first?
So we made this place for you!  

The threads in this "section" are Public for Guild Members, Open, Non-Committal Roleplay Threads, where characters can come and go at their leisure, meeting new people, making new friends, maybe even being dragged into an adventure (storyline!) elsewhere, all in the interest of fleshing out personalities!

The overall goal for boards in this section is to get your profile completed so you could go on real storylines and adventures in the RPing section!

Things to keep in mind when Roleplaying in this area:

  1. None of these threads are storylines! They are all places for characters to interact for you to test out their personalities!
  2. You do not need to ask permission to join! Just hop on in like you're entering the scene; when you're done with the conversation or don't want to play anymore, have your character leave - it's that easy. 
  3. Please don't keep people waiting! If someone is waiting for you for a few days, the moderator (the guild member who created the thread) will PM you a reminder; if you don't feel up to playing in that scene anymore, just have your character come up with an excuse to leave, and leave. No hard feelings =) 
  4. If you make a connection with another OC and want to make up an adventure somewhere, take the planning to the Roleplaying OOC boards! Keep in mind where both of your characters are from, though; with the way this setting is created, you might be playing with someone who exists thousands of years in the future on a completely different planet! Oh yeah! And get that profile submitted for approval! You must have found your character's true personality!

How do these settings work?

  • These (mundane-looking) settings are actually magical~ They work almost like a time-door. *Note: they are not A.U. settings for your character. That is to say, this is not a new/alternate version of your character who was born and raised in the 20th/21st century in whatever-place-this-is and leads a normal non-senshi/etc. life in this setting - they are still who they are in your accepted profile. They've just been transported. 
  • Example: Say your character is thirsty, and they're in the mood for a nice hot drink. They're minding their own business, going to their favorite coffee shop, and when they get there they reach out, open the door, and end up stepping into this place. They might not even notice the difference at first, but man that barista is a little rude, and they certainly haven't met them before... so they maybe decide to take their coffee at a table, rather than leaving, and start getting to know people. 
  • It's a random occurrence set up by some magical old crone who likes to arrange meetings - the instant teleportation to this world is activated all across the universe, in all places and times - you could run into someone from the Silver Millennium, or someone from far into the future, beyond Crystal Tokyo.
  • To make the setting less of a distraction to your character, anachronisms are to be ignored. People from the Silver Millennium shouldn't find the atmosphere strange, or marvel over the 20th century tech; similarly, people from Crystal Tokyo or beyond (or other planets) also shouldn't find the atmosphere strange or outdated. In short, everything feels right - your character shouldn't spend a lot of time marveling over the place - it just feels normal; it's part of the magic of the place. However, characters are free to talk about the differences to their own worlds and their own experiences ((so sitting down at this dainty little table drinking coffee shouldn't be or feel weird, but you are fully free to talk about the klah on your planet and the festival coming up to your companion, who may be just nodding their head in confusion))

oh but question! when they leave, will they still remember the interactions they had with the people they met? say, Sailor Soul and Sailor Nix have coffee together, then later on they're together in an event. would they recognize each other, all "hey, i remember you, how have you been?"
No. They would not remember each other, unless both parties agreed that there was such a phenomenal interaction/exchange/starting of a new storyline in play and added this strange off-world interaction to their profiles and got the change accepted. (don't forget the "both" part; if, for example,

or if they've already interacted will they recognize each other? like Amatheia walks in, sees Enya behind the counter and starts talking with her, like "hey, we went to andromeda together! you're doing this now?"
If they've met already in another storyline and that storyline is detailed in their profile, then sure they remember each other. That storyline not added to their profile yet? Nope, don't remember them. 
Afterwards, if they run into each other in another storyline, see above. If it's not added to their official profile, it never technically happened.

and second! do the posts we make also go towards our post count?
Not for posts made in the Guild, no!
