Genre/s: Crime/Suspense/Mystery/Action.
Detailed Description: The year is 1994, and South Africa has begun to undergo major change, with the election of its first black President, Nelson Mandela. With the election of President Mandela and a major rise in the political power of the ANC, institutions of the minority white government such as Apartheid have been struck down, while Mandela makes attempts to bring about reconciliation between the whites and blacks. While many have applauded Mandela for his strong efforts of reconciliation, others have resented the end of Apartheid, fearing as though the blacks would oppress the whites and limit the opportunities of future white South Africans. Violence is not unheard of, and in poverty-stricken areas of the nation, violence between whites and black is all too common. In the coming days, a new violent event would threaten to bring down the growing Rainbow Nation.

Welcome to the city of Johannesburg, capital of the Gauteng Province. In recent years following the striking-down of the Group Areas Act and the end of Apartheid, crime has gone up and Johannesburg has seen many businesses shut down as a result. Racial tensions are high, and many point to these tensions as the cause of the assassination of a prominent ANC politician in the city. Many blacks believe that the assassination is the work of anti-government whites who resent the end of Apartheid, while a majority of the whites are accusing the ANC of assassinating the politician so that they may use the situation as an excuse to further "Africanize" South Africa and to persecute the whites. Race riots and gang violence have begun to increase in Johannesburg, prompting the South African Police Service to respond to the chaos.

In the midst of the chaos, the SAPS is carrying out the investigation of the assassination in a unique manner. For one of the first times since the end of Apartheid, the investigation team is racially integrated, with the hopes that the appearance of a multi-racial investigation team will help to soothe accusations of racism by the police. You are one of the detectives assigned to the case, and whether you are white or black, your job is to get to the bottom of this murder. For all of you, this is a first - to be working alongside someone of a different race. However, you must put aside racial differences if justice is to be upheld.

I am considering this RP for the near future. Right now, I want some feedback on this draft.

As I mentioned on TG, you'll just need to do a lot of research to ensure accuracy.

High Concept: Militia Activity in a Rural Georgia town
Genre/s: Action, Crime
Detailed Description: 10 minutes ago, simultaneous explosions occurred at governmental buildings all over Lumpkin County, Georgia. Targets include the County Seat, Sheriff's Office, Police Departments, and others. Militia groups are suspected of perpetrating the attack, which has been the most recent of many in the area. The Georgia state government has created a task force to combat these militia groups, as well as federal law enforcement as well.
Alright, so, now that the initial setting is established, this RP will focus on Lumpkin Country, Georgia, during a period of unrest as the state and federal government tries to stem the threat. Players will be characters and can create or join militia groups, or play as local, state, or federal law enforcement.

What is the intent of these militia groups?

I'm kicking around an idea. I've cleared some space in my schedule, but I'm trying to establish whether I can keep it clear, and whether this idea would hold my own interest as an OP. So I have some more homework to do. But details may follow.

You're breaking my heart, Lisa.

I've a question to ask. Is there a way to make your players take initiative and be more self-sufficient, but still have them work for a common goal? I dislike holding hands, but feel like the moment I let go of them, everyone goes nuts, stubs their toes and devolves into a bunch of drama. No offense, Postapocalyptians.

What do you mean by "take initiative"? What level are they at now and what do you want them to be at?

So I'm thinking of starting a Star Wars RP, but one set in The Old Republic era that takes place during the Galactic War. It is a very different setting than the clone wars and it hasn't need done before. Would that conflict too much with current future tech RPs?

Speaking as a fellow who meddles in most FT RPs in P2TM, I haven't seen any with that specific theme recently; you may have to compete for RPers with a CIS Triumph RP that wandered by a while ago though.

Hello, Travellers of the Traveller's Cafe!

I shall make my first appearance here with advertising my new RP

RP Name: Of Shadow
RP Creator: Terintania
Type: Character
Genre/s: Not actually sure what kind of genre a thief RP would be considered....
Detailed Description: This RP is a thief RP based in modern times. You will play as a member of the 'Guild', and you will be presented with increasingly difficult jobs as time goes on. You must plan these jobs carefully with your fellow thieves, making use of each of the Guild member's special skills. I will present you with the jobs, then leave the planning to the other Rpers, and will act as a sort of overseer, making sure no one does any ridiculously stupid plans, but beyond that, whether you fail or succeed will depend on your planning skills. It will also depend on how will you execute the plan.
So, will the guild make a name for itself? Or will it end in disaster?
The guild is based in a town of my own making, or rather, a town that will sort of build itself as the RP goes on. There will be plenty of places to rob and make money. From houses, to stores, to mansions, to castles.
Link to the OOC: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=283855 (Note that the OOC may undergo a slight re-do to improve the quality of it. It will basically be the same, just not written by someone at 4 in the morning :P)

Are academy RPs solely in the realm of fantasy? Because I just had an idea for one in a dystopiabn near future setting focused around a military academy that trains people from the age of 15 to 20 to be special forces troops.

Well, in the US, Militia is a word right wing domestic terrorism groups use to describe themselves. So, basically, their goal would probably be to destabilize local government, as well as regional. As far as specific ideology goes, I'll let players decide that for their own militias.

There are occasions when I feel like I just nation RP because I can't commit to a single person and all their details, but they pass.

I could add the ability to play as one character in the Cold War RP I made. That way there isn't fighting after all the "good" nations are taken. The biggest issue for a character RP in a war setting is the fact that one person is a lot easier to kill, and lots of RPers are going after that one person. When you have basically the two most powerful alliances in the world in 1972 fighting in a full scale war with each other, one person is not very helpful. Especially because lots of people are going to try to eliminate the one character.

Here's the biggest issue I have:

"Soviet Forces once again attack Western Berlin, with thousands of soldiers, jets, and tanks to overwhelm the NATO defences. A Soviet Anti-Air groups fires desperately on the Allied aircraft, until one finally makes its mark through the flares. It's the fighter of (_________)"

And then a big fight starts in the OOC. I've seen it happen with Nation/Character RPs.

Just throwing this idea out there, what about a realistic gladiator RP? You can pick your weapons and armor and such, and everyone can fight in duels of varying types?
