The Madhouse [Role Play Group - Open]

Postby The Madhouse Role Play Group » Sun Mar 12, 2017 6:24 pm

The Madhouse Role Play Group is an organization of writers, world builders, and artists of all experience levels dedicated to storytelling and mechanics-based role play games. We network together to build worlds, fashions cultures, churn out interesting role plays, and pass on knowledge. We're housed in P2TM but we also participate in other areas of NationStates, including the N&I boards.

Our offsite forum contains a resource hub, a role play hub, a place to your post your art and fiction, and a place for general chatter. We are open to hosting your organization's events as well, and successfully hosted the writing portion of the annual P2TM awards two consecutive years via our subsidiary organization, Paedagog. We have our own Region though we do not require our members to join it.

We operate two IRC channels: Discord (primary) and Espernet. Links will be provided via TG once your name has been added to our roster.

Our creed is simple: Madhouse Productions and the Madhouse Role Play Group stand by the following:




Image
  1. All People have talent regardless of their experience or age - nobody is useless.
  2. Young People have wild imaginations not yet tempered by experience or reality - foster their passions.
  3. Some People are passionate about their favorite genre - this is wonderful. We welcome your passion and will never tell you that you can't play with us. We encourage our members to share their own fan fic or art on our OSF (follow the PG13 guideline) as well.
  4. It doesn't matter if your wonky tech is unrealistic when engaged in nation roleplay with us - you made it and it makes you happy. (Be aware that one Person's tech may not work well in a Group sharing similar tech - your hard line science jump engines will be useless in a gameverse where ships are powered by unicorn farts. If this disturbs you, you aren't forced to play the game. Likewise, unicorn-fart jump engines might not be workable in a science fiction game. Ask before signing up for a game, if in doubt.)
  5. Pay it forward - help when asked, be kind when interacting, follow basic etiquette.




Image
We seek a large membership filled with people that hold a variety of interests. Diversity allows us to thrive. The larger our group, the more information we can offer to those within and outside of it. Our current membership includes official N&I and P2TM Role Play Mentors as well as talented players, writers, and artists from NationStates' varied roleplaying forums.

NationStates Offerings

RP Name: Puella Magi Civitas Angeli
Offered by: Rupudska
Status: Active
Subforum: P2TM
Theme: Action/Horror/Fantasy
Premise: It has been ten years since order has been restored to the cosmos, and the Law of Cycles is once again in the hands of the rightful Goddess. Normality has been restored to the system - Kyubey grants Wishes for girls, girls become Magical Girls, Magical Girls fight wraiths and the occasional archon for their Grief Cubes to rid their Soul Gems of despair, Magical Girls squabble over territory and either gain control of a city (or cities) or end up working for someone who does, Magical Girls use the name of their cities instead of their real names (more out of tradition and etiquette than necessity), and eventually Magical Girls succumb to the Law of Cycles, whether through despair, age, or in a few legendary cases, choice.

In the United States, though, the winds of change have started to blow. For decades, Los Angeles has been referred to as 'The City Where Magical Girls Go To Die', and the only girls ballsy enough to to claim a name from the Southland are Terminatrixes - Magical Girls hired by Kyubey to off Magical Girls considered too dangerous to allow to live; and even then these Terminatrixes rarely if ever actually live within the Los Angeles metropolitan area - the wraiths are too strong, too smart, too numerous for any sane Magical Girl to ever consider taking on without an army, or even the Army, and Terminatrixes rarely have abilities useful for handling wraiths.

But an army indeed is forming to take back Tinseltown. Initially postulated as a half-serious idea by the previous Las Vegas, the idea gained steam when San Francisco admitted to liking it, and later Phoenix and Albuquerque. Still, no real motions to act on the idea came to fruition until the kingdom-like state of Chicago decided to support the idea, and dozens more followed suit, from Anchorage to Zacatecas. Some out of interest, some out of boredom, some out of lust for battle, and of course, some just to get rid of a few annoying Magical Girls by throwing them in the world's bloodiest meat grinder west of the Prime Meridian.

The date is set - April 19, 2025. On this day, efforts commence to seize Los Angeles from control of the wraiths.

All while keeping the mundanes out of it. The Masquerade must go on without the real Army finding out, after all.
Enrollment: Open

RP Name: Noir Voyage: The Reboot
Offered by: CYLARN
Status: Active.
Subforum: P2TM
Theme: Action/Adventure/Mystery.
Premise: The downing of an NGO plane over the DRC prompts a private rescue party to enter the country in the hopes of locating survivors. On a boat traveling down the river, these volunteers must surmount an ongoing insurgency and the mysterious Congo.
Enrollment: Open

RP Name: The Young Bloods
Offered by: Zarkenis Ultima
Status: Active
Subforum: P2TM
Theme: Action/Adventure
Premise: With the emergence of superhumans during World War II, the first major contact with an alien species in the year 2000, and the highest level of activity among magical creatures and practitioners of magic since the middle ages, the world of The Young Bloods features a great variety of opportunities for the aspiring hero or heroine. However, not every story is a happy one. The 18th of March of the year 1999, a popular team of young superheroes was ambushed and routed by a mysterious group of villains, in an event known as the Young Blood Massacre. Since then, society has attempted to learn from its mistakes, and non-adults are seen as untrustworthy and unfit to be guardians of justice. But some things are ordained by destiny, and so this story will follow young men and women (and young humans and non-humans of any other gender) as they rise to greater heights, whether they follow the path of light or the path of darkness.
Enrollment: Open

RP Name: Taken for Granted
Offered by: Imperial Idaho
Status: Active
Subforum: P2TM
Theme: Post-Apoc/Faction
Premise: It has been 8 years since an EMP fried almost every electronic device on earth, effectively sending mankind back to the middle ages. Disease and starvation ravaged North America, and still do in this ever so cruel world. The east coast is a death zone, as the west bickers among themselves in their brand new nation states and bandit kingdoms. Horses ride once again as the main way of transportation, and as ammunition becomes scarce, its either a choice between bows and arrows or muskets. In a world without power, will you be able to survive the unending hordes, disease, and the test of time?
Enrollment: Open

RP Name: New Civilizations
Offered by: G-Tech Corporation
Status: Active!
Subforum: P2TM
Theme: Historical/Alt-Hist
Premise: The year is 3000 BCE. Man is still learning how to bang two rocks together to make a sharper rock. Suddenly, people from the year 2000 AD appear! And the world was never the same. How was it not the same? Why, that's for you to decide, gentle Author.
Enrollment: Super Open, ye bastards

RP Name: The Vast and Empty Sky
Offered by: Rupudska
Status: Active/Inactive
Subforum: P2TM/II/NS
Theme: Sci-Fi/Action
Premise: Players are mercenaries hired by the Imperial Cyanian Navy (the Cyanian Empire is the premier power in the galaxy and a 'peacekeeping' force, but not the only power) to guard and protect a cargo ship they do not know the contents of as it travels from one end of the galaxy to the other - all the way to Earth, through uncharted, unexplored, 'uninhabited', or just plain dangerous space, all to protect it from those other powers on its long and winding path - and the job application stated that even that might not protect it completely. The galaxy is massive, and FTL travel can only go so fast, and only drones can cross it in less than two months, and that's in a straight line with no stops. The journey will be long and hard, but the pay and the glory are more than enough to attract those from all species and walks of life in the Milky Way.
Enrollment: Open

RP Name: Gods Among Us V4.0
Offered by: Primordial Luxa
Status: Active
Subforum: P2TM
Theme: Superhero, Action, Fantasy, and Science-fiction
Premise: Gods Among Us is a character and faction based, story driven, role play. It focuses on Superhero, Action, Fantasy, and Science-fiction genres with an occasional dose of Political Intrigue and Lovecraftian Horror. Gods Among Us uses a combination of Sandbox and Rail-road play to provide players to interesting stories to participate in as well as means for them to create their own stories and add to the setting. Many of the threads have an overarching plot which all the events and actions in it will likely feed into. Players are free to explore the world and interact with other characters. When players feel lost or unsure what do we encourage them to join the rail-roaded stories where they can work towards the main plot.
Enrollment: Open

The ATHENA Program
Offered by Tiltjuice
Status: active
Subforum: P2TM
Theme: alternate history, alien invasion, war
Premise: A changed world finds itself facing down an alien invasion.
Enrollment: open

In Memorial of the Fallen [RWBY RP]
Offered by Stormwrath
Status: active
Subforum: P2TM
Theme: School-based RP build upon the RWBY franchise
Premise: If you haven't already been aware, RWBY is an American animated series created by Monty Oum (may he rest in peace), well-known for its pseudo-anime style and 2.5D animation. And awesome fight scenes, very awesome fight scenes. In this RP you will be taking up the role of teenagers who are training to become part of the next generation of Hunters, an organization dedicated to protecting Remnant from the Creatures of Grimm.
Enrollment: open

Q U E S T I O N OF THEW E E K

Question of the Week (QotW) is a weekly discussion point. All members are free to vote in the poll and chime in on this thread.
Some questions might be silly. Others might be serious. Have a question you'd like to see listed? Send a TG to a Founder.



12 Mar 2017: Have you fed the quandrangle?
    The majority of people did.

13 Mar 2017: How do you, as OP, handle player disputes?
    90% (19) stated that they would hear them out (TG, OOC, IRC, etc) and try to mediate.
    10% (2) stated that they would let the CoOP deal with the headache. (Facetious reply is facetious)
    Nobody opted to sort it out IC, strictly, nor did anyone state they would not involve themselves (let the players handle it), nor would anyone boot both players just for having a disagreement.

20 Mar 2017: What's your goal as an OP?
    45% (13 votes) feel their goal is for everyone to have fun.
    38% (11) strive to bring balance while letting players be creative.
    10% (3) felt killing everyone was a good goal.
    3% (1) said it was all about the action.
    1 Person (perhaps faciteiously) answered the "OP have goals?" question.
    0 people felt an OP should focus on shipping, and shouldn't showcase their own writing skills and awesome character concepts

27 Mar 2017: What's your most favorite setting for an RP?
    27% (6) were partial to Futuristic settings. (Sci-fi/space opera; Star Wars, Star Trek, Alien franchise, etc.)
    27% (6) were partial to Post Modern (Cyberpunk, X-COM etc)
    18% (4) enjoyed esoteric.
    14% (3) enjoyed bygone fantasy games.
    9% (2) preferred to play games set in the here and now.
    5% (1) advocated for Pre-Modern.
    Alas, the Wild West received no votes.

1 Apr 2017: What type of GM frustrates you the most?
    43% (13) chose the Lazy GM.
    20% (6) stated the Egotist GM frustrates them.
    13% (4) disliked the Rule Monger GM.
    10% (3) voted for the Continuity Flubbing GM.
    10% (3) decided they disliked the Control Freak.
    3% (1) wanted nothing to do with the Killer Game Master/DM
    0% (0) hadn't any problems with the Monty Haul Game Master.

10 Apr 2017: Favorite posting methods? You have 2 votes [1 for Incidence (post frequency) and 1 for Style].
    INCIDENCE:
    29% (13) preferred Round Robin: everyone goes in turn.
    18% (8) opted for "Free-for-all. Post out of turn, whenever, regardless of who else is in the scene or whether or not they've had a chance to post yet."
    0 wanted "Collaborated: everyone works on the post together, using Google doc or other methods. One person posts the final product."

    STYLE:
    38% (17) chose "Middle Ground: short but carefully crafted to incorporate adequate description/action into the dialog for fellow players to base their posts off of. Usually a paragraph or two."
    16% (7) were into "The Novelist: lengthy, detailed posts several paragraphs in size."
    Nobody wanted "Quick and Short Blitz" nor was anyone into "Meh. As long as someone gets killed."

15 Apr 2017: A player is posting something risque. Do you:
    52% (13) Would talk to the player in OOC/TG/IRC to get it edited and resolved, keep it tasteful and what not.
    32% (8) would go with it, cause shipping is fun!
    16% (4) would warp it so you're a wizard hunting for rhino horn and the offending char is your new victim.
    0 Would be That Guy, and report it immediately, cause your eyes!

24 Apr 2017: As a RPer, do you feel the current trend to "dumb down" science will effect your hobby?
This was a tough one, and not exactly pleasant. None-the-less, the results are:
    11% (3) said Yes. Younger generations aren't capable of worldbuilding with any realism. Wonky physics and an ill-thought-out world ensue.
    37% (10) said Yes. Younger generations lack imagination and a desire to "discover", and can only draw upon what the media exposes them to (comic books/manga, anime, movies etc).
    4% (1) felt the answer was Yes, but only when it comes to mechanics games involving math.
    22% (6) were Not sure. At least online PbP gamers can improve their writing, right?
    25% (7) replied No. Who cares if things are accurate? You don't need science in order to role play. (Wait, does this count the coding for this website?)

30 Apr 2017: Are you a tabletop gamer? If so, post your favorite game in the thread!
    54% (15) said "Yes, I'm a tabletop gamer!"
    39% (11) said, "No, I'm not a tabletop gamer!"
    7% (3) said, "What the heck is a tabletop gamer??"


10 May 2017: NS Summer is almost here! What would you like P2TM to focus on?
    38% (11) want Moar RP
    24% (7) think writing workshops on Discord or an OSF, or in the P2TM threads would be perfect
    21% (6) would like a coding workshop
    17% (5) thought world-building discussion threads would be good.

16 May 2017: Why do games die? (Discussion) (2 options can be chosen)
    42% (28) believe players lose interest because it doesn't move fast enough, or they flake
    32% (21) state that OP stops playing or doesn't take the time to manage the game
    14% (9) say there isn't much to the premise so there's nothing to do - boring!
    6% (4) feel the game looked good at the start but player posting habits (one-liners, colored fonts, no substance in the posts etc) made it suck
    3% (2) said the CoOPs power trip and are obnoxious
    3% (2) said rule mongering gets in the way of fun

29 May 2017: Which power/ability is overrated/overplayed/overpowered? (Discussion) (Three options can be chosen)
    22% (18) said Nigh Invulnerability (immunity to A, B, π, Ω, etc)
    22% (18) also said Power replication/duplication/stealing, cause cheating always wins
    17% (14) voted for God of X, Y, and maybe even Zed!
    10% (8) didn't approve of Psych-based powers (telepathy, telekinesis, making people yawn, etc)
    10% (8) also didn't approve of Batman
    8% (7) voted for Teleportation
    8% (7) voted for Manipulation of X (plants, metal, water, the toaster machine, etc)
    4% (3) took issues with Robot, cyborg, biomech, and every morass in, out and between

5 June 2017: What is your preferred use of "downtime" during an RP? (can select multiple if they overlap or you prefer several)
    38% (20) - Character Development - personal quests, interpersonal relationships, and anything and everything in-between, provided it's about fleshing out the character (and unrelated to equipment or shipping)
    25% (13) - OOC content - one-shots, getting to know your fellow players, memes or other such content; using downtime to spend more time in the OOC rather than moving things along in the IC
    15% (8) - IC Conversation - whether it's chit-chat over lunch, exposition of one's past across a campfire, or banter over the fresh remains on a battlefield
    13% (7) - Zany side-stories - time for a side quest or event that provides filler content without affecting the main plot or the characters in a significant way
    6% (3) - IC Flirting/Shipping - let's face it, it happens, a lot of people like it, and shipping is always a popular pastime among RPers and lurkers alike
    2% (1) - Powering-up - for all our min-maxers out there, downtime might be used to acquire loot and skills/spells for characters to be used when the main quest resumes
    0 - There's no such thing - if an RP has downtime, it's because either the OP or the players are dragging their feet regarding the main plot; downtime is to be avoided

13 June 2017: How do you deal with a trouble-making banned player? (3 votes allowed)
    31% (15) After I ban them, I ignore them completely and then laugh in my sleeve as they spiral themselves up because they can't get reaction from me.
    23% (11) After I ban them, I tell my group to do a 'wall of silence'. Don't give that player attention; don't rise to their bait.
    15% (7) After I ban them, I keep an eye on their posts to see if they're badmouthing me and my group in other threads. Then I report them for harassment and libel.
    14% (7) After I ban them from my game, I ban them from all my other games and orgs.
    8% (4) After I ban them, I look to see what games they're joining, and I warn the OP about them.
    6% (3) After I ban them, I kill their character off in the IC to make a point.
    2% (1) After I ban them, I keep an eye on their posts to see if they're badmouthing me and my group in other threads. Then I post there to respond to false accusations.
    0 (No votes) After I ban them, I let my players vent in the OOC. It helps the group heal.
    0 (No votes) After I ban them, I boot anyone that sticks up for them or complains about it.

17 June 2017: Worldbuilding: your favorite type of setting to create! (And why?)
    63% (17) Imaginary worlds – the construction of entirely fictional universes, found primarily in fantasy genres.
    33% (9) Alternate reality – re-imaginings of the details of our existing world; popular with writers of science fiction.
    4% (1) Actual locations – the invocation of a real place in the world, utilised in novels with no elements of the fantastic.

-Time off for American Independence Day weekend-

24 June 2017: If Madhouse were to do group RP, what should it be?

    55% (18) Neither & Both. Let it come naturally, it doesn't matter which comes first. (Hippy).
    33% (11) The face. The name is less important until I get a good image of the face and other physical attributes.
    12% (4) The name. The face/physical attributes are irrelevant until there's a name, thereby shaping the person.

    4% (2) NS Sports (NS Sports)

    0 No, because creative minds always flow.

    17% (9) Oh my God, the End is near!
    34% (18) Awesome. I can see a partial eclipse.
    36% (19) Meh. Can't see it in my part of the world.

26 August: How do you typically start your RPs or stories in the IC? (Provided by Ched)

    44% (15) Play along with it and keep the story rolling, death adds to stories!

4 September: What do you find most difficult when joining a long-running game?
3 options
    2% (1) I worry about First Post Swarm. I post my PC's entrance in to the game and everyone jumps to welcome me. I'm overwhelmed by all the responses I have to give.
    3% (2) I don't really have a problem joining long-running games.
    16% (9) I worry about First Post Chill. I post my PC's entrance into the game...and it gets ignored by all the other characters.
    10% (6) The setting. I'm not sure what anything looks like, or where the playable areas are. This stuff was introduced long before I joined.
    21% (12) Player social dynamics. Cliques form over time, and like minds group together on small stories. I hate being left out of insider jokes.
    24% (14) The PCs. I have to keep referring to their apps to get a feel for what they look like. There are so many names, but not enough description to make each PC stand apart from the rest in my mind.
    24% (14) The history. I don't know any of it, and I sometimes feel left out/lost because I wasn't there to help establish it.

11 September: What do you remember about 9/11/2001?

GENERAL INFORMATION
Nickname on NS: PWA

Main haunt(s): I mainly lurk on II, Nationstates, and GE&T, I sometimes get involved with P2M but I do tend to struggle with larger groups.

Timezone: GMT-5

Other NS Nations: Post War America, Metraxi Hierate, Verde Democratica, La Isla Dorado, Isla Plata Lesser Verde, Cuarzo Islands, La Isla Diamante

ROLE PLAYING
How long have you been role playing? For a long time, since I was a kid really.

Did you learn to role play on NationStates? Nope

What methods of gaming do you enjoy the most? I am fond of Shared RP Google Docs, Worldbuilding, Play by Post, Pen and Paper RPGs, and in short bursts LARP. I occassionally dabble in Roleplaying by Videogame, but find that it can be too much of a time vampire.

What RP Genre(s) do you play? I prefer political intrigue, highish fantasy, and science fiction, and noir type stuff. I generally am a fan of Cyberpunk/Post-Cyberpunk as well as other retro-futurist type settings.

What RP Franchise(s), if any, do you play? I generally prefer to avoid franchise based roleplay, but I do have influences, because being honest, who doesn't?

Do you have GMing/OP experience? [Y/N] I run two D&D groups (one of which is likely to be converted to the FATE system), have been admin of a small RPing forum, and have OPed a few (embarrassingly short lived) threads on NS.

What is your area of expertise?: I am definitely strongest when world-building as I can demonstrate Here, here, Here,
https://docs.google.com/document/d/13XW4AqFa0z8iZrLCnLd3Gv9CnTu0y-uSimlltKcO3Xs/edit?usp=sharing


and through my contributions iiwiki.

Would you feel confident teaching others this skill? I would have no problem answering questions, and am (very slowly) working on a guide for such.

In your own words, what is role play? A collective storytelling experience wherein multiple persons create a fiction for the purpose primarily of entertaining themselves, but possibly including others.

Why do you RP? Because otherwise I'd be bored out of my skull.


ARTISTS
Are you an artist? If you count producing bad music, and worse lineart the work of an artist than yes.

Would you consider doing commissioned work? Not at this time, but should I get better software for music writing, and have more than basic skills I may be willing to do that for commission.

DeviantArt account? Technically yes, functionally no
If yes, are you a member of Deviant-NationStates? See above


FINAL THOUGHTS
Why would you like to join Madhouse? Because I was a member of Paedagog, and am rolling over membership.

GENERAL INFORMATION
Nickname on NS: Swith

Main haunt(s) (F&NI, II, NS, GE&T, NS Sports, P2TM, F7): P2TM, NS, a little F7

Timezone: -5 GMT

Other NS Nations: If it has a "witherward" in it, it's mine. Also Nifid and a few others.

Tech Levels (for Nation play): FT, FanT, PT


ROLE PLAYING
How long have you been role playing? A very long time, and since a very tender age.

Did you learn to role play on NationStates? Nope.

What methods of gaming do you enjoy the most? I thrive on storytelling forum RP, and I enjoy the occasional mechanics game. However, I'm a wargamer at heart. Give me a tabletop and a rules set, and I'll play the fuck out of it: ancients, Napoleonic, modern, and futuristic wargaming. I'll still dabble in tabletop now and then.

What RP Genre(s) do you play? Sci-Fi; Fantasy (specializing in Tolkien); Romance/Drama; Horror; Espionage (WWII-based only, please); Historical (WWII-based only, please)

What RP Franchise(s), if any, do you play? There's very little I haven't played. I'm not an anime fan, though I'll play old school Robotech.

Do you have GMing/OP experience? [Y/N] Yes

What is your area of expertise?:
    Character design & development; "Actor's Workshop Training"
    Conworlding for P2TM and NS (worldbuilding: physics, environment, species, culture, religion, etc)
    Xeno/Species design
    OOC/IC thread generation and organization (layout, coding, wording, character applications, chronicling)

Would you feel confident teaching others this skill? Yes

In your own words, what is role play? This hobby that I have that my parents just never fully understood, and that I never talked about in high school because it wasn't cool to be a nerd back then.

Why do you RP? The question should be, Why don't I RP more often? I RP to unwind, to escape from life's bullshit at the end of the day. It's a good way to keep my mind sharp, and a fantastic means of networking with fellow nerds.


ARTISTS
Are you an artist? Yes. Some graphic design.

Would you consider doing commissioned work? Not at this time.

DeviantArt account? Yep
If yes, are you a member of Deviant-NationStates? I... didn't know there was one until Cer showed it to me.


FINAL THOUGHTS
Why would you like to join Madhouse? I'm a Founder.

In your own words, what is role play? Seeing through your character's eyes, hearing through your character's ears, feeling through your character's soul.

Why do you RP? Partly bcoz I'm compensating for my general introverted and antisocial personality, and partly bcoz it's turned into an addiction for some reason. My imagination simply found another thing to vent itself out of whenever the opportunity presents itself. Other times I just doodle. :P
