PostSubject: [RP Challenge] Summer - Taking Chances   1st July 2018, 12:45 pm


To accept the Taking Chances Challenge, within July through September:
Like a Star @ heaven Reply to this thread with the elements of the challenge that you are planning to try!
Like a Star @ heaven Talk to other roleplayers! See if they're interested in working together to meet some of the objectives!

To COMPLETE the Taking Chances Challenge, before the 5th of October:
  Take a chance on joining a New or Existing Storyline! You never know what plot may end up stealing all of your attention!
  As a storyline creator, take a chance on upping the stakes to keep players engaged in a storyline! Consider an Activity Rule or see if a Rainbow Crystal stamp holder would be up for hosting an RTRP for your storyline to get things moving again on a stalled plot! See  below for how to do this!
  As a player, take a chance on something new! Try out a new character or a new style of writing! Take on something different compared to your current style - reach to extend your limits! 
  As a player, push your character to take more chances! Take action in the roleplay, rather than relying on reacting to situations! Be bold and daring - try something new! Be passionate - start a new conversational thread, consult the Storyline Creator to throw in another obstacle for the characters to face, or throw in some conflict with another character just to see where it leads!
Like a Star @ heaven Edit your acceptance post to show what challenges you completed!

Complete two objectives above and earn this breathtakingly gorgeous bumper made by Sailor Neptune!

How can the RP staff help you out?
Join the RP Activity group and connect with all the RPers there to trade ideas and get excited about RPing!
  Bump your Storyline's OOC threads to remind people to post! ♥️ A friendly "Hey! Let's RP our Storyline!" PM is nice, too! Contact Sailor Uranus if you would like opinions on what to say in a reminder PM!
With the help of a Rainbow Crystal Stamp Holder, consider arranging your own "Real Time RP" (RTRP)! See Sailor Saturn for details with scheduling use of the RTRP Discord channel!
Keep an eye out for the brand new Activity Card(s)! Try to check off as many points as you can to get the stamp and prizes!

If you have any questions at all, feel free to PM Sailor Uranus or any of the RP Staff about this season's theme!

I, Sailor Uranus, accept this challenge!

By October 4, 2018, I will challenge myself to take a chance in resurrecting a handful of previously Graveyarded storylines! Measurable goals along the way will be:

  1. Opening/reopening an OOC thread for the graveyarded storyline to attract new players
    --Recruitment period will last a limited time; if no one is interested, I'll move on.
    --[ooc][Advanced] Love and Spite [Revival] - July 11 
  2. Putting in modifications to the existing graveyarded storyline to address potential reasons for failure:
    --Proposing an Activity Rule to ensure the story moves along towards completion
    --Proposing a slight shift in plot to make completion an attainable goal rather than a far off dream
    --Putting restrictions on the number of players / active characters; assigning all non-claimed characters as NPC's or background characters to be controlled by players when necessary.
    --Instituting the expectation of time skips between scenes for less-action oriented storylines
    --[ooc][Advanced] Love and Spite [Revival] - July 11  
  3. Securing players
    --Getting at least 2 others interested in joining the storyline
    --Having those 2 create profiles for the storyline / adopt ancient crossover profiles for the storyline
    --July 12
  4. Reviving the storyline from the Graveyard section - August 4
    --Have each of the players post at least once within the first two days to kick things off or
    --Consider an RTRP to get things moving


I will consider this challenge met and completed if/when either of the following happen:

  • The resurrected storyline gains two pages of posts
  • The resurrected storyline reaches completion.


I consider this goal to be meaningful as most resurrected storylines often get revived only to fall inactive and return to the graveyard not long after; it's taking a chance that not only I stay focused on these neglected babu storylines, but that my fellow recruited players do, as well. 

;D If any of the players that join me on this adventure once i get to it want to copy/paste these goals they are totally free to in their own post XD 

Challenge Storylines under consideration:
Love and Spite - Enydmion
Batteries - (3) Mamoru, Togarishii, Usagi  (OOC) *This would be the 3rd and thus final attempt to complete Batteries
Genesis - (2) Saiph and Sirius
  [Advanced] Metamorphosis - Jumping in with Aurae Verdi and Bubbles! note as this isn't one I personally revived, I'll only count it towards my challenge if it meets either of the completion goals!

I'm going to take a chance with everything to do with my first senshi oc and OCs in general! This includes
-creating my first ever storyline!
-participating in other RPs with any OC character
-more OC character accepted profiles-at least two
-participating in more RPs in general
and I'll continue to have these characters, as well as other characters grow in development.

I accept the challenge!

Taking a chance by hosting a revival of an old RP game, Clue. It's something new for me to host, and I believe it counts as taking a chance xD
Making a profile for a character I've never played before, and RPing with her after! (Hotaru, currently WIP)
Joining a new/old revival of a storyline!
Playing a character who pushes to act rather than react (Cassandra)
Potentially reviving an old storyline of mine that was later adopted by Aurae and pushing for the finish line! (Metamorphosis)

I accept this Taking Chances Challenge!

Make at least one 1000 word post from each character this summer!
I've taken to doing a lot of shorter RP posts (< 500 words)... But in the RPs that I'm in atm it's a good time for both my characters (Minako & Sailor Pluto) to get a little more introspective and go into some heavily descriptive flashbacks for once! No more beating around the bush and just alluding to things that I think I'll flesh out later or that are assumed from canon!

Ask Solar Knight for an activity rule in our new RP.
I've discovered after doing both Casual Events and a normal RP that I need it! I have dates in my Trello to post but they're usually just to stave off the story being Silence Glaived @_@. Not good enough! Let's take a chance with an activity rule outside of Casual Events - definitely something new for me!

Revive Scandalous Scrutiny!
I've never revived a storyline before and it's taking a chance because Brit and I are always so busy and already in one other RP together ^^;;.

Push Sailor Pluto into more action instead of reaction this summer!
She's got the keys to return to the Space Time Door for goodness sake! I think this will be a little easier to pull off after I get some of her needed flashback stuff out of the way...

Embrace the mean side of Minako and the conflict that will occur as a result!
The new RP I'm in as Minako is begging for conflict so this is a perfect time to exercise that! This will be a good way to get outside of myself and ensure I'm playing her well instead of just being always nice to everyone, everywhere, in every setting >.>. It might feel like a bit too much at first since I'm not used to playing that side of a character, but there's no way to get to that just-right place for her character without starting somewhere!


Here's hoping I find time to do all this... Well, it never hurts to make a plan for this sort of thing, anyways ^^;;. Thank goodness I have all summer XD.

I accept this challenge!

Resurrect The Lunar Chronicles HC series and see it to completion, running the hardest phase and keeping all players interested so that we can finish the event properly within the outlined timeframe!
Make more posts in my roleplays per week/month (more than just 1-2 posts per storyline in a month that are active/being replied to by my partner(s)) and keep up a more active schedule of posting than just once a week
Attempt to revive and use an old OC of mine that I originally had a whole storyline idea for that never took off; Sailor Vega
Revive old storylines successfully (Love and Spite, The Warrior Princess and the Miraculous Enyalian, Metamorphosis, Heart of the Ocean, Tale as Old as Time, Paramnesia)

I accept this challenge! 
My goal is to get back into roleplaying! I've already made some progress but I want even more.

 Create a new RP
I've already created one with Lyssarie but I want to create a new one.

 Create more character profiles
I'm currently low on profiles so I need to make more - especially advanced.

 Post more in RPs
I'm hoping to post about 5 times a week from now.

I believe I inadvertently accepted this challenge when I decided to join an HC event as a villain today.

Soooo... I accept this challenge!

Create an Advanced villain for the Lunar Chronicles HC event
Make a Chibiusa Profile (because how can I not have....??)
Create a new storyline (I got that Miraculous Ladybug AU idea going...)
