Would a spy/comedy RP work? Instead of being mainly humor based, I want to have a RP with a good setting and story, while still making sure there are plenty of hilarious moments, even if the story deals with serious events that took place during the Cold War, along with making it a satire of several spy movies and other works classified in the genre, such as Metal Gear and James Bond.

I was in a spy comedy not too long ago called "Evil Genius". It was a blast. Cold-war era, and my character was a hoot. I don't know if what you're planning is similar, but you might check it out.

I'd think that parodies of spy movies like James Bond would work well.

I've been sitting on an OP for a police RP for almost a year now. I think it's of decent quality but I haven't posted it out of fear the effort will be totally wasted.

I was in Evil Genius, also. A blast, also. For this RP, rather than work for an evil organization during the Cold War, you are hired by an Illuminati-esque agency who are willing to hire the most unqualified people to make sure the world is not being taken over by evil. I'm doing it during the Cold War, where I might add some alternate history to several parts.

I would be interested. Possible characters are coming to mind as we speak. Like an uptight, anal-retentive guy with OCD as a spy. Might be pretty hard for him to lay low.

Give me feedback on this idea.

An RP based on the world of Neon Genesis Evangelion. If you want a link to the series lore, it's right here: https://youtube.com/watch?v=L4HhbmspTlg
To sum it up, a scientific experiment in Antarctica goes awry. Resulting in a cataclysmic explosion, a change in the rotational axis of earth, and a significant rise in sea levels. Even worse, beings called angels begin causing chaos world wide. To combat the angels, humanity creates the evas. Giant robots capable of defeating the angels. I am surprised that no one has tapped into this for RP material.

Because no one good enough is willing to make it into a good RP
Vanq commands a quiet respect that carries its own authority. He is the Hitler of NS.


"I took away Vanq's YB for deliberatly ignoring me"
"I know Vanq is a very good writer and this is how he treats someone of lesser skill?"
"I would love to have a writer of your caliber along for the ride"
"neo and vanq do a dbz fusion to form 1 big shitposter then get erased from NS by kyrusia"
"Which is the level of memeing I expect from Vanq"
"brigadier general comes on, pulls a vanq and calls us all autistic"

I can understand that. But, I am up for making one if anyone is interested.

Welp, even if no one is interested, I already have the OOC and IC drafted and saved. And I'll post it tomorrow anyway.

What if we were to have an RP where a small amount of strange matter were to hit the Sun, and, as some scientific models suggest would happen, spreads throughout the star and dims it significantly? Humanity is forced underground into a semi-makeshift array of tunnels, bunkers, and subways in an effort to escape the cold.

That would be really cool, but it feels like the Metro scenario, funny you included strange matter, I saw a video on YouTube today about it

Hola,

Is this the right place to ask about the history of the P2TM mentoring team?

After doing a diligent research into the history of P2TM mentors for the NSindex article, I wish to ask the following questions:

1. On what date did Cerillium join the P2TM team?
2. On what date when Nightkill the Emperor was officially retired from the P2TM team?
3. Are there any retired P2TM mentors that I have missed?
4. If I have missed any retired P2TM mentors, who are they and what dates they joined and left?

All dates should be in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), due to global reach of NationStates.

With best wishes,

Minoa.

I think you and I saw the same video. It was a really interesting concept, strange matter and strangelets. And what would happen if one collided into the Earth, or the sun. Bizarre concept that would make for a very different sci fi RP.

Hi, I am asking them here, since I believe that this is the most relevant thread to make the enquiry.

After a two year hiatus, I will be rebooting my Superhero RP in June. I already have Superhero APP and Supervillian APP, a system of power levels, an active Superhero Team, an active Supervillian Team, secret bases for both teams, and two government Agencies hunting down both sides. I am planning on adding six additional government agencies to the mix, as well as a tier list for weapons, an APP for Agents, and an APP for Henchmen. However, I am having writer's block when it comes to which weapons will end up in which tier.

Send me a TG and I'll see if I can get this tier system going for you.

Hey! This RP has been less active lately (due to my busy schedule the last several weeks), but it still is alive and accepting apps. Comedy plus space plus janitors saving the galaxy. So far, lots of fun. And soon to get a kickstart back up.

Talchyon's RP is awesome :D You should check it out Aeritai. The only reason I withdrew is because of business matters. Store's getting more settled, closer to opening, so I've got more time but I'm not yet ready to tackle the challenging of getting back into his RP. You on the other hand don't have that trouble and he has a way to get a character right into things.

You know? We were all at a busy time apparently. That happens IRL. But with me, I still love this even if there come times we need to take breaks. Sometimes you can't rush comedy.

What I'm trying to say is, there is no guilt being lashed out at you. Be at peace, man, and thanks for still being in it.
