Screw Realism [RP Group|Open|Reboot]

Postby Valefore » Mon Aug 13, 2018 5:32 am

Some important information: As mentioned, this is a reboot of the original Screw Realism RP Group. As such, I've taken the original OP [with very slight modification by myself] to be used as the OP for this one. After all, if it ain't broke, don't fix it [and it's also a nice nod to Olwe's work IMO]. Now, this is open to previous members and new members alike, but I'm too lazy to go through Olwe's old member list especially since so many of the nations on that list have long since CTE'd. As such, please reapply and I'll add you to the new member list when I can. Thank you.

This is just what the title says... seriously, screw realism. If you want an RP environment with completely unrestricted tech levels and an emphasis on fast-paced action with lots of character development rather than logistical, and statistical, and other istical details, then feel free to join this group... If you're one of those people who engages in pedantic nitpicking about whether having one's troops show up within visual range of the nation to be attacked in the OP is godmodding [it's called fast pacing, not godmodding], then this probably isn't the group for you.

What we do here:

-As much badassery as possible. This means that not only will RP storytelling likely be recklessly fast-paced, but also the power levels of all the nations involved will probably be extremely, perhaps even ridiculously, high.
-Openly accept any and all who want to join. This means all techs, all ideologies, all species [seriously, check the anti-Pony bullshit at the door]... but it also means being noob-friendly. They're not going to learn to RP properly if nobody ever helps them, so one of the things this group is going to do is take new users under our wing and show them the ropes. Now, raiding small [as in new] nations because they're more vulnerable targets, discriminating against Ponies, or gays, or whatever else, etc. is allowable in character... just don't let it become an OOC problem.
-Mix techs as often as possible. Even though PT wouldn't stand a chance against FT in most non-magical scenarios, no thread involving this group is ever likely to be a non-magical scenario so power levels will even out enough to where we can RP with each other regardless of what time frame we exist in.

What we don't do:

-Godmod. Just because power levels are insanely high doesn't mean there isn't a limit on them, and controlling or deciding the fates of named characters controlled by other nations without permission is still a bad thing. WMD usage might also be regulated in the future, if someone tries to spam WMDs in order to godmod another nation.
-Nitpick about godmodding. If you're going to accuse another nation of godmodding, make sure there's absolutely no doubt they were doing whatever they did in order to cheat, or at the very least that what they did puts whatever nation they're fighting at a significant enough disadvantage that it is indeed a problem.
-Sacrifice pacing for realism. Since this group was originally founded by a person who gets bored easily, for people who get bored easily, pacing will always take priority. This means that sometimes, if it speeds up the thread more than it gives advantage to a particular RPer, some milder types of godmodding may be allowed to slip past the radar unquestioned.
-"My army could stomp your army" stuff is no longer accepted here... if you're seen doing it in the thread you'll be kicked out of the group, and if someone reports to me that you've been doing it via TG you'll be kicked out too. This goes for tech vs. tech, nation vs. nation, and other non-army-related forms of dick-measuring as well... it has no place here. Even if you think your nation is superior, shut up about it.
- On that note, any debate that goes on for more than one page and either isn't directly related to a SR RP or is getting heated enough that it might draw the attention of mods should be taken to telegrams. The thread gets cluttered with inane crap otherwise, and nobody wants that.
- To be clear, that means that if you're joking, for fuck's sake use a goddamn smiley. Otherwise you'll just start another flame war. Note that saying "*nods*" is NOT informative enough... smileys are still required.
-Not let people in. If you've posted an app then you're automatically accepted, so there's no need to ask. The list might take a while to be updated sometimes when I'm really busy, though. There's also the chance that due to high volume of posts I might completely miss your app, so it's best to TG me if you're not sure whether I saw it.

Some information you should probably provide about your nation if you're signing up:

Nation Name:
Preferred Tech Level(s):
Ideals (things seen as good):
Things frowned upon:
Anything else we should know?

Nation Name: The Demon Empire's Colony of Parfuhmerie
Preferred Tech Level(s): This nation & its menagerie of other different civilizations folded into it operate in Fantasy-tech & right-before-steam-machines tech. Although electricity does not function as expected, there are ways to force it to, but they aren't practical enough to let a whole FT vessel work (it can be cast to only affect what's essential).
Ideals (things seen as good): In Parfuhmerie, the ideals are talent, willingness to work hard, & boldness. In Psytronius, the ideals are knowledge, willingness to work hard, & boldness.
Things frowned upon: Parfuhmerians dislike communists, those that contribute nothing to society, & those who are too passive. Psytrines dislike anti-intellectualism, the mistreatment of test subjects, & completely reckless research; the latter two are mainly personal things they dislike, & they will only question the confidence of the societies & individuals that do them.
Anything else we should know? My preferred tech levels are as stated, but I am willing to roleplay in any other universe so long as the other persons are accepting of either the magic or the apparent lack of magic (there is no alternative universe variant of my nation or its world).

Much like with Olwe's version of this thread, you are automatically accepted upon applying. So yes, everyone has been accepted, and they have all been added to the member list as well.

I'm not sure exactly what you're asking, but your not "obligated" to do anything upon joining other than filling out the teeny tiny application after which you're automatically accepted. This group is for any and all tech levels, RPs, etc... If a Screw Realism RP comes up, and your interested in joining it, you can expect what the OP says concerning what we do, but really, that's about it.

Nobody has suggested anything just yet, but I can always think a lil' aboot my nation's universe to see what dilemma can occur. Or we could reboot one of the old roleplays.

Edit: Forgot to make the note that I somehow missed Amenria's suggestion. Whoops!

Come on guys, let's have an RP. There's no point in having a cool concept but not flaunting it. How about a leaders-only fight club?

It's not a roleplay that's centered around hecking stronk characters clubbing each other, but I figured that I should shamelessly plug link a roleplay of mine that I'll be doing that could allow hecking stronk characters to club each other... in the form of duels for the glory of a primordial chaos dragon. It's open to literally everyone & any character. So long as roleplay etiquette isn't broken, of course.
