So, I've been wanting to make an RP to start out with my first RP character (This one), and I do have a rough idea:
Sailor Koronis attempts to engage with a Youma, but is overwhelmed, only surviving due to other nearby senshi (could be otaku or canon at this point, not sure) noticing and bailing him out, but he doesn't see who they are initially. He eventually finds them again (could be another battle or something) and manages to team up with them to pursue bigger threats.

As my first RP, I'm not sure how much I need to put in. Should I have things in detail or left vague for flexibility? Should I plan a definitive end? What slots should I open up for others? Should I go for otaku or canon senshi for the others?

You'd have to at least have an inkling of where you wanted to go with her, partially so that you can write her profile for acceptance and partially so that you don't wind up with a quickly-stalled Storyline.

Other than that, though, your best bet is opening up an OOC to see who might be interested. If you focused on getting one or two other people to play active characters, that can be easier than trying to get a game started with a huge cast list.
Which makes perfect sense. I do have an inkling, but it's not set in stone yet-and that's something that's needed for the profile to make sure you're not going OOC-especially if it's going to be an advanced profile. 

Now I just have one more question-what if you end up with the whole characters' story figured out, but since other players are trying to figure it out, wouldn't said info on the profile be a bit of a spoiler as to how the direction of the RP is going to go? How would that go on a profile? Under a spoiler tag, or just written like any other profile? I'm fine with either; I just need an extra clarification is all.

I'd recommend that you write it like any other profile. Most RPs don't involve knowledge of other characters between characters unless it's been specifically established in the OOC thread or side-discussions. In a way it is a "spoiler" for the RP plot if that's what will be revealed, but considering that an RP is about actions, reactions, and connections it is usually fine. Plus, if they read it, it might serve as inspiration for other players and give them ideas of what they'd like to include or focus on!

Leaving things open-ended is fine, especially in a Relaxed rp, as it gives that flexibility you were talking about. A general organizational prompt or flow works well! You may want to include a line or two about where you hope the RP ends up - i.e., fighting a big bad, or just getting characters to know each other, that kind of thing.

If you were still on the fence as to whether you wanted canon or otaku, with all these new otaku senshi popping up I think putting emphasis on the otaku characters rather than canon could work better at finding people to play! Open it up so that even as you're introducing your OC, they are introducing theirs, or giving theirs another place or opportunity to grow; you could put it in a country other than Japan if you still wanted the option to interact with canon senshi in the future but wanted an easy way to explain their noninvolvement with the current storyline!

Definitely make the OOC board before making a storyline submission; that will give you and the players an opportunity to get an firmer idea in mind and lets them work their character in more fluidly!

Thanks ever so much for the advice! But, how does making a submission work? Is the RP being accepted mean you can make an OOC and the actual story, and is the OOC you mentioned just a request or concept or something, or can you already make an OOC without the story being approved?

The OOC is what you make before you put together a storyline submission; you use the thread to put your premise out there, advertise for players, and work player suggestions into the plot to come up with all the fields necessary for a storyline submission to be approved.

Ah, okay.

Do I still use the usual story template for the thread?

So I've made the OOC (Here), and I'm wondering.... Should I wait for most of the slot to be filled, or can I send the RP for approval earlier?

There's a pretty easy answer to your question in the Storyline Submission Rules and Information!

Storyline Submission Rules and Information wrote:
New storylines requiring 5 or more characters will not be approved until at least 3 players have signed up to take on roles.

The number of many roles you plan to require will help you decide when to submit the Storyline!

If you're going to start with 4 or fewer required roles, you could submit it now with just interest from you and Sports.

If you want 5 or more roles, you need at least at least one more RPer.

Well considering at least 5 are needed (Koronis, a villain and at least 3 other senshi), another user will be needed, then.

So, I did make my rp but since no one has joined I'm thinking of making a new one with both my Ocs! Where Kurami is "hunting" Mei for revenge (will be explained in the rp) and is willing to destroy the senshi as well. I'm also looking for outer senshi Rpers but sadly none yet! Hope you all like my idea!

So, this idea I have started out as "I really want to use Sailor Sol in an rpg without contradicting others with her backstory."

I don't particularly have a concrete idea though (which is the problem).  They're all kind of mingled out and some are just branch offs of the NEO-universe. (Like, Who protected Earth before the Sailor Soldiers awakened?  Or,  During the BMC Invasion, what was going on in other parts of the world too?)  

I just kinda wanna develop her more, but not sure how.

I started thinking of storylines for my OCs to be involved in and then things ballooned from there. So I may as well.


- Fantasy bumps up against the wall of science fiction. A remote region of space is discovered that, due to Galaxia's genocidal campaign or something else, has no or nearly no planets bearing intelligent life and Sailor Guardians. They obviously should be colonized, but unlike most Sailor Guardian business, this is something that is relevant to a lot of people who aren't magical at all, who get through space in spaceships instead of with magic wings. Things that seemed neatly settled come back as loose ends: where did Ali and En end up settling? Do their descendants want to go exploring for their lost homeworld? Who chooses freedom of the frontier over the safety of the Silver Crystal? What do you do when people are fighting over opportunities instead of evil clouds? Dare you plunge into the frontier?

- Fantasy vs science fiction. The remote region of space is colonized, then cut off from Neo-Queen Serenity's influence for an extended period as a Sailor War rages. When contact is re-established, these planets have their own Sailor Guardians -- who exist as people whose world fundamentally runs by the rules of sci-fi, not fantasy. Whether this is "handheld laser guns and space fighters and robot assistants" or a question of the fundamental worldview of the genre, they are still heroic, noble champions of peace and justice... who have absolutely no respect or loyalty to Serenity and her followers, and view them as villainous usurpers.

- Speaking of Sailor Guardians as villains, as it keeps coming up. Why come up with a way for them to be mind controlled or tainted with darkness? History is written by the victors -- assume the story we saw was written by the victors, and then ask, what is the light that the villains would want to paint themselves in if they got to tell the story? Maybe the Black Moon Clan are heroic freedom-fighters, the last people willing to stand against immortal tyranny, against a vanguard of noble souls tragically led astray. Maybe the Death Busters are Heroes Of Science in the mold of Doc Savage and Tony Stark, constantly harangued by ignorant and superstitious Guardians who define themselves by the ghosts of the past. And the same key points in the story happen, but in totally different ways that cast them completely differently. (The Dead Moon Circus are the Seelie Fae, who are still pretty evil.)

- Speaking of the Death Busters, Professor Tomoe had to start his operation some time after his daughter's lab accident. When did they form? For how many years did they run before going into "crunch time", preparing their methodology and observing Hotaru? Did they notice the Dark Kingdom or Black Moon and do nothing about them? Did they notice the Dark Kingdom or Black Moon and do something crucial about them, that the Sailors never noticed but would be lost without? What was it like for Hotaru to grow up as an experiment? Did she meet any of the Witches often enough to find them likable, but not often enough to see their insanity? Did they have to put a padlock on the daimon incubator to stop Mimette from sending out daimons for morning coffee? 

- Speaking of origins and doing something about the Dark Kingdom, Beryl was reincarnated like everyone else. Who was she before she was Queen Beryl? What life did she have? How'd she get the Dark Kingdom back together? Did she think she was on a blood-soaked journey of revenge, or was she hoping for a destined Miracle Romance that transcended death?
