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!
