The Union of Nondescript RPers: Third edition. (OPEN!)

Postby Jormengand » Wed Dec 19, 2012 11:10 am

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, stallions and mares, alpacas, sea-serpents, half-dragons, ancient Sumerian witch-lords, demigods and presidents of the USA, welcome to the Union of Nondescript RPers: Third edition!

Well, I'm sure you have some questions... I will answer them to the best of my ability.

  1. The Union of Nondescript RPers, huh? What is it? What isn't it?

    Okay, a couple of good questions. The Union of Nondescript RPers (or UNR) is, simply put, a thread for people to find other people interested in a similar RP, and for people to maintain a standard of RPing. It is not, read: IT IS NOT an elitist union. This should be a standard of RPing that anyone can do. I maen its not Two hrad too spel corectly and use puntuaction. Also, anyone godmodding will be attacked with my super immortal witches of destruction!

  2. Okay, third edition?

    Yeah. We had the "Union of good RPers," and then the old UNR. You don't need to know anything whatsoever about them.

  3. Why do I want to sign up for this, again?

    Well, let's see. First, you can advertise for your RP. Second, you can see what the rest of the union has to offer. Third, you know those annoying RPs which insist on an RP sample? Bung some on the UNR thread and then you can just chuck the link in as your RP sample. If you decide that one of your RPs is really good, or that another is shocking now that you think about it? Go ahead and swap them around.

  4. But II! And NS sports! And F&...

    Coming soon, if people actually ask for them. However, please don't make them without my permission. Because that's not cool.

  5. Okay, I signed up for the UGR and got carried over to the old UNR. How come I'm not on the new UNR list?


    Because I wiped it. Otherwise, we'll have people in the union who have never posted in the UNR thread. You can just sign up again - if your old samples are still viable, you can just link to your old post.

But I have more questions!

Well, go ahead and ask!


The seven deadly sins of the UNR:
  1. Flaming. You can have a character who goes around murdering gays and blacks, but say a word against either in the OOC and you're out. Same goes for non-prejudical insults. You can scream and bawl at Pedro Ignacio until you're blue in the face (or he throws a fireball at you), but retain civility in the IC.
  2. Godmodding. Yes, one of my 300 epic knights of epic are allowed to be better than one of your 50,000 peasant warriors, but they're going to die eventually. They don't have plot armour, just plate mail. Generally, every side in a war should be about as good as every other.
  3. Hounding. Especially in regard to godmodding. Simply put, it's an easy enough mistake to write "hit" or even "killed" when you meant "shot." Check what people mean.
  4. Textwalling. I have Asperger's Syndrome, and thus find it inordinately hard to read textwalls. What exactly is it that you don't like about the return key?
  5. One-linering. Yes, this ranks below textwalling, because at least it gives me a vague idea of what's happening. In some RPs, it is an intergral and neccesary part of the roleplay. In most, it's not enough. For example, even in a game of D&D it's acceptable to write:

    Leeroy casts quickened cure light wounds on himself, and then charges the goblin.
    But why not write:

    "Goddamn it." Leeroy realised how badly hurt he was, and quickly healed himself, before turning to the second goblin. "All right chums, let's do this.
    LEEEEEEEROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOY"

    ACTION: Quickened cure light wounds (Self), charge (Goblin 2).

    I mean, it's still far from perfect, but it just shows that even in game RPs, you can still actually - well, roleplay!
  6. Inactivity. If nobody responds to the IC, and they have no legitimate reason not to, it's a pain in the arse. Please stay active!
  7. Illegibility. This includes colour-spamming, (colours are fine for languages, Multiple personality/Ignacio's syndrome, multiple characters etc. but have a reason. And not too bright.) bad spelling and grammar, formatting that's broken, and so on. This also kind-of includes textwalling.


Right, so how are we getting in? Well, here's the app. Remove everything between greater/less than signs.

Code: Select all
[box][b]Name of all nations, including puppets:[/b] [nation]<Your main nation. Copy the format and list others afterwards.>[/nation]
[b]RP samples:[/b] <Do not write here>
[list][*] [url=<The URL of the RP>]<Some form of description of the RP>[/url]
[*] [url=<The URL of the RP>]<Some form of description of the RP>[/url]
[*] [url=<The URL of the RP>]<Some form of description of the RP>[/url][/list][/box]


Well, that was easy, wasn't it?

Name of all nations, including puppets: Jormengand, The Union of Nondescript RPers
RP samples:


Once you're done, feel free to move to The Union of Nondescript RPers region. Feel free not to.

THE PIT IS OPEN!

"Need to expand" like Jorm-as-a-balloon? :p

For nations I'll just put down only my main nation and my puppet in the region. I doubt I'll be using any of my 70 other puppets in P2TM, but, if I do, I'll add them and let you know. And yeah, I seriously need to take part in more RPs. II ones aren't really good examples for this forum.

EDIT: Replaced regional history RP with Cloud Abyss.

Accepted. Welcome to the gang.

I am probably going to expand into II and possibly NS sports. I'm not sure any others need a UNR in them.

I remembered that my RP in Cloud Abyss was far better than in the regional RP one, and in the right forum too! so I've edited my app.

RP advertisement time! I'm doing a god rp with some twists, though I hope to keep the stuff that makes people want to play as deities, so expect the differences to be subtle. Find it here: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=214455 and in my sig
Signatures are so 2014.
