Forbez Roleplaying?

Postby Michelle on Fri Oct 05, 2001 5:04 am

Judging from the popularity of the Word Association Game, I think that a Life on Forbez Roleplaying thread would be a good idea! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"><P>When people first post, they post a description of their character, like I'm about to do, and then the <I>next</I> person to post adds them to the story. Please don't try to make other people's characters do too much embarassing stuff if they tell you to stop more than three times <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif">. <P>You can also introduce new characters, in which case you could label them either "NPC" if you want everyone to be able to make them do stuff, or "MINE! (GRR!!!!)", if you want to be stingy and keep an extra character just for yourself.<P>Let's all try to stick to CDC's level of humor (even though I doubt it's humanly possible), and keep in in third person limited point of view, past tense. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"><P>(It's like Impromanga without needing to draw anything! And, I'm going to look stupid if nobody else plays.)<P>It'll be fun! We could end up in some area of Gang Warfare on Forbez, or anywhere else. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"><P> <B>CHARACTER NAME</B>: Michelle
<B>AGE</B>: 15
<B>OCCUPATION</B>: Fangirl
<B>WEIGHT</B>: N/A
<B>"PROBLEMS"</B>: Motivationally Challenged, Ultimate Goal is Supreme and Unquestioned Dictator of the World, Too Smart, Has Nothing Better to do But Read Online Comics All Day, Worries People (But has papers proving that she's <B>not insane</B>, thank you <I>very much</I>...), Makes <B>Things</B> Bold and Italic For <I>No</I> Reason, Likes Life on Forbez. Oh, and an evil twin sister/doppelganger named Amanda. (I'm not kidding, either! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/frown.gif">)
<B>OUTSIDE QUOTE</B> (<I>You'd need a quote of someone refferring to the character here,and then someone else gets to try to incorporate it into the story! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"></I>): "What can you do? People like this are bound to show up anyway..."
<B>PERSONAL QUOTE</B>: "I hope it wasn't more than four people! If it's more than four people, it's an official conspiracy..."
<B>DESCRIPTION</B>: Pretty much like this...<P> <B>[Picture removed because poster's sheer brilliance is blinding.]</B><P> ...And, uh, with dark brown hair and brown eyes and stuff. <P>
And there's me! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"><P>Please don't put your signature at the end of the posts in this thread.

Heh, I've been reading the comic for a bit now, and decided to show up on the message board for once. And I can't resist a good Roleplay =/<P>CHARACTER NAME: Mike
AGE: 12
OCCUPATION: Guy without occupation.
"PROBLEMS": Paranoia, if you count that as a problem, but this seems like a place to discribe what the charector is like anyways. Oh yeah, pessimistic =/
OUTSIDE QUOTE: None, for he is rarely, if never, noticed.
PERSONAL QUOTE: "They've been watching me for years. They're just too scared to come after me. I know too much."
DESCRIPTION: He's a guy. He wears clothes, he has hair. He talks breif. He blabbles on when he should shut up and uses the descripion section for things not about description. Well, I don't think it's about description anyways.<P>

Name: Koji or Kojini
Age: 15
Occupation: Would-be aspiring novelist and mudboy
Weight: Enough to be a burden
Problems: Slightly antisocial and anti-patriotic, no skills in idle conversation, problems with ignorant authority figures, tendency to become extremly violent once every few years.
Outside Quote: "Why do you have to be so mean all the time? Maybe that's why you only have creepy friends, y'know?"
Personal Quote: Look here, you are whining about the fact that I'm whining even while saying that you are not whining, so therefore we are both whining. Notice though, my voice doesn't have your uniquely shrill quality."
Description: A Japanese person with freckles.<P>Kay then, I suppose I'll try and start this off.<P>Everyone was standing, oh I don't know, at the gym in line to be picked for dodgeball teams. Kojini is eyeing the book he'd been reading before the bell had rung, placed at the end of the gym, fifty feet away.<P>THE Guy is rambling on at his supreme supremacy at the game of dodgeball to a five-eyed mollusk creature and Michelle is carrying on a conversation by herself. Mike seems to be eyeing the dodgeball's suspiciously. <P>When the teams are picked, by some twist of destiny, Koji's team is compiled completely of bulky blue aliens with a cannonlike projection for a left arm that, despite their advanced artillary, can't aim. The balls are fired at high speeds only to hit the upraised bleachers with a satifying thwack before bouncing back to their side. The other children are running around in sheer terror because alien THE guy was talking to has been taken away in a stretcher.<P>"Great, the omnies fixed the teams again." Koji muttered. How was he going to be hit out with everyone gallufing about like chickens recently deheaded?<P>**********
Hope this is okay. Just an idea and if you guys don't like it feel free to ignore it.

[<I>D'oh, forgot to include a 'Race' section for the character description things...I wonder if I could be Human? I'd be hated ten times as much as the Nords though, probally... <P>And it's third person limited POV, Koji. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"> Basically, that means pretty much like first person, but using third person words. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"></I>]<P>**********<P>Michelle stood in the corner of the gym and against the wall, considering herself mainly inconspicous due to the fact that everyone else was trying to kill someone on the opposite team. The weapons being Nerf<I>ling</I> balls didn't seem to make matters much better.<P>"What team am I on," she said, to the world in general. "I wasn't paying attention."<P>She ducked as a stray ball hit the wall at about 100 mph directly where her head was. "I don't wanna play anymore!" she cried, rushing torwards the locker rooms. "Everyone's out to get me!"<P>She darted behind the bleachers as another ball whizzed past her at ear level. A rather normal-looking group of Omnies were nearby, and one with a backpack was fumbling with a DCD (Dispatch Communication Device?).<P>******************************<P>[<I>And nobody can talk about what I'm doing unless you're on the bleachers too, or you manage to catch a glance as you run by screaming. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"></I>]<p>[This message has been edited by Michelle (edited 10-07-2001).]

Race...are the Nameks allowed? Anyway, I'll try and stay in POV harder. The, "I don't know" remark was intended for me, the writer, not me, the character.

Postby Great Monkey God on Sun Oct 07, 2001 7:38 am

<B>CHARACTER NAME:</B> Great Monkey God, aka Mr. Monkey God, aka Mr. Monkey.
<B>AGE:</B> Unknown, but at least 6700 in earth years (most likely he's much older)
<B>OCCUPATION:</B> In a past life he was a leader of Earth's most important, yet secret, religion. Currently he is a teacher and dodge-ball coach.
<B>WEIGHT:</B> varies
<B>"PROBLEMS":</B> Has too much knowledge, knows too much "stuff" and sometimes forgets some of it. Keeps telling his students to look at "the big picture," which might be important. Past lives sometimes reemerge and confuses the hell out of people. Temporary flashes of immaturity, anger, self-righteousness, and use of dead languages.
<B>OUTSIDE QUOTE:</B> "What are you supposed to be the god of anyway?"
<B>PERSONAL QUOTE:</B> "Don't eat the fish, you'll be sorry," and, "What everyone needs to know can be summed up in one simple phrase... ummmm, oh, I'm sorry, I was thinking about this stripper with the biggest... I mean, GET BACK TO WORK!, or, uhhhh, ummmm, whatever."
<B>DESCRIPTION:</B> A man-monkey, or a monkey-man, kinda like in the original <I>Planet of the Apes</I>, but can change appearance and even disappear. Past is unknown, even how he made it to Forbez.

Maybe you should wash it. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif">
You're not doing the story in 3rd person limited. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/frown.gif"> <P>And really, why would you want to just sit and sketch on Forbez, when you probally do that at home? Though a comic about a guy who draws comics all day might be prett--well, actually I don't think it would be very intersting, but that's just me. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"> There are probally a few like that, anyways.<P>
And now to see what I can do with the story from here:
(And I'm still behind the bleachers, you must've seen my evil twin.)
(Oooooooh, and if gets good, let's make an online comic about it, with the great CDC's permission of course. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif">)<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>
Michelle ducked as another ball barely missed ripping her head off, and nearly hit an Omni behind her.

"I'd better find somewhere else to be," she said to herself. "These Omnies are calling Dispatch*."<P> "Who are you talking to, Human?" said the one with the backpack.<P> "Uh...myself."<P> The backpack-wearing Omni glared. "...Inferior," he said, and with that the group wandered off, leaving her by herself.<P> "<I>You're lucky I was feeling nice today, or I'd've had to show you how stupid your stupid Dispatch really is,</I>" she grumbled when she was sure that absolutely no one could hear her. "<I>Stupid Omni superior race...</I>" she searched for the right word, "...stupid..."<P> "You know, the Omnis have the whole place bugged," said a familiar voice from behind her.<P> She turned.<P>"Do they?"<P><HR></BLOCKQUOTE> <P>(DUMDUMDUM <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif">)
Ok, someone who hasn't jumped in yet could find this a good spot to jump in, that's why I put that last line in there. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"> I need a friend, preferably someone who isn't evil. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif">
...Doesn't anyone want to be an Omni? Or a Nord? Or a Nomadite? Or a Lubian?<P>* [i]Note: The Omnies can't call Dispatch for a dodgeball game, I think that a lot of the stuff the kid Omnies call in for are ignored, like the Bane and Rommana thing. They probally have a little kid Dispatch to do some of the stuff for them. But if an adult Omni calls Dispatch on you, you're probally in a bit of trouble. But that's just what I think. Haven't talked to CDC about it. I think he has bigger problems to worry about anyways. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/frown.gif">

Kay, whatever.<P>Anyway, does anyone have a problem with the Namek race? I think it'd be funny to have a fighter race be mistaken for a Nordian. Anyway, maybe not.<P>Online comic? That'd be...woah, my character illustrated on the world of Forbez...<P>And now, on with the story!!!<P>_____________________<P>
Koji tapped his foot against the gymnasium's floor. The foolish game had been going on for at least five minutes!<P>One of the blue aliens slipped over a discarded ball, falling flat onto his back. The ball he'd loaded flew straight at the ceiling, bouncing off the compisite material and hurtling itself at the floor. The ball hit then bounced again, dribbling itself twice more before becoming landbound. <P>Koji saw his opputunity. He made a mad dash for the ball as it began to roll over to the other side. Unfortunately, he was cut short when he collided into the force barrier designed to prevent cheating. The same barrier which kept him away from his book. Accursed barier...<P>He rubbed his head, blinked twice to get his eyes back in focus, then shouted at the nearest kid on the opposing team, a orange boy with a mohawk "You! Toss me that ball over there."<P>"Are you crazy? Those guys will cream me!" The kid shouted back.<P>"Look, here's the deal. You toss me the ball, I let it bounce once, then throw it at you, the bounce will send the ball back to me so I can get out also."<P>"..."<P>"Do you want those other guys to hit you?"<P>"Right. Um, can I go get a friend real quick?"<P>"NO! Look, just get over here a GET ME THAT BALL!" Koji couldn't see what could be so complicated about something so mind-numbingly simple.<P>"Uh, right." The kid said, then began a hasty advance towards the ball in question. <P>Because even a human can right the story a Tale of Two Cities if you give them enough typewriters, a popular example of the oddness of probility, or because kid had moved in closer, or most likely a combination of the two, a ball connected with the orange kid in the chest and sent him flying above and then skidding along the ground.<P>/Just my luck, he gets out and I don't./ Koji thought. Well, there were others.<P>"Hey, you over there!"
_________________________<P>This also might be a good time to jump in to my part of the story, if anyone wants to.

Name: Ryan
Age:17
Race: Cohenian
Occupation: Freelance Artist
Weight: N/A
Outside Quote: "Hey guy!"
Personal Quote: "My name ain't Guy!"
Description: Well I was born on Cohen but the Cohen planet was just an empty planet that was colonized by Humans, so I guess me and Michelle are in the same boat ^_^. but im kinda short, dirty blonde hair, muscular(like Goku ^_^), quite a skilled artist, mostly a loner, not many friends from the school he attends, sits alone drawing most of the day, quite cocky.<P>Ryan sits against the wall behind the beachers drawing a charicature of the big funny blue aliens with bad aim, as Michelle flys by blowing some of his pages around.
"HEY WATCH IT!!" *whispers* "ya stupid _____"
a funny red alien comes and sits next to Ryan and pulls out his own sketch pad and starts doodling.<P>"Hey Ryan."<P>"Hey Bob, any new characters today?"<P>"Nope just drew another couple pictures of Shanteal." says Bob<P>"Still using my ideas I see, thats cool though. I'm workin on a picture of those guys out there playing that stupid game."<P>"HA! thats great."<P>suddenly a ball sqeezes through the bleacher seats and flys straight at Bob's Binder scattering all of his pictures and pencils.
"Awe, Son of a..." said Bob as he gets up to pick up all his stuff.

You know, that'd probably turn this game into dungeons and dragons, with a LoF twist if we did that =/
But hey, that doesn't sound so bad.<P>---------------------------------------------
Mike, needing to go to the bathroom, dashed down the hall of the school. Bathroom, bathroom... There's... A bathroom in the gym! He thought, pivoting his foot and turning the corner to the left.
Too bad the bathroom was across the gym, right next to the bleachers, but hey, Mike needed to go, who cares if the bleachers would crush him? He had to go. Quickly and swiftly (To the best of his ability) he dashed to the bathroom, right near the bleachers.
~Mike, the dude who had to go to the bathroom.

lol, "NO! You can't call dispatch if your a Nord! You idiot! If someone uses the "Wow, your stupid" card on you now, you take 5 points of damage for every classmate in play because your stupid and bump into them, that's much more then the normal 2 points of damage. And now the stupidity lasts double your INT instead of the normal 1 time. Man, oh yeah. Your STR is decreased by 2 for every classmate in play, your INT goes into the negitives, and you lose. I win, oh yeah, now I get to chop all of your cards in half." "HEY THAT'S NOT IN THE RULES!" "Too late."

_____________________________________________<P>As Bob was picking up all his stuff, Ryan got up and said, "Well I'm gonna take off, I'll talk to you later man."<P>"Ya later, OWW!!" said Bob as he stood up hitting his head on the bleachers.<P>As Ryan walked out from under the bleachers a ball came wizzing right past his head. "WHOLY ____!!" He starts to run in a frantic effort to get out of the gym as many more balls fly past him. Suddenly a ball hits him square in the head knocking him unconcious...

It's third person limited past-tense, d357--er, "Jen". That means 'ed' instead of 'es'. You're supposed to wait for someone else to bring you into the story, or wait for a jump-in point... <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif">

A pile of wood from the ruins of the bleachers moved, revealing Michelle, brushing some imaginary dirt from her hair and clutching at her nose.<P>She looked around the area. "Did the bell ring? Is it over?" she asked, in the same tone someone would use when, after being lost for several years, finally finds her way out of a very large cave. <P>She wandered in the general direction of the locker rooms, disoriented.

Okay then, I am...a Namek!<P>Anyway, I think I'll just wait a little bit longer for someone to jump in.<P>And oh yeah, one more thing. Michelle, the omnies may not be able to rely on dispatch all the time, but that doesn't mean they can't do a lot of stuff. Remember how they punished that one offender? Or how scared the librarian is of them? When they speak, people listen and try and hold their bladder.
