What is this?

The Forum Role-play Index is a place for Escapists to obtain information on the many, many, many role-plays available without having to go through lots of individual pages. It's also a place for new role-plays to get some publicity.

How can I contribute?

You can help expand the Index by submitting active role-plays. Please only post links to threads that you are either GMing or are participating in. Once an RP is posted to the Index it does not need to be re-posted unless there is something that requires correcting - such as if a role-play has been re-opened, is on hiatus, or has ended.

Please submit role-plays using the following format:

Name Of the Role-play

GM(s): Who is in charge of the role-play? Co-GMs may also be listed here.
Genre: What is the RP based on or what is its overall genre / type? Ex: Western, Sci-Fi, Anime, Horror.
Status: Is the thread new and Accepting Sheets? Is it Open to sheet submissions by PM? Is it Open Permanently for new players? Or has the RP begun and progressed far enough that it's now Closed to new applicants?

Link: Copy and paste the thread URL here or use the LINK tag.
Usergroup: If you have made a User Group for the role-play, include the link here.

Description: Write a brief description/summary of the role-play. Try and sell the idea to potential applicants.

Author's Note: Thanks to Claymorez and CounterAttack for the original Index thread(s). If anyone missed Counter's GM Interviews in the old thread they can still be found here.


INDEX START

Updated On : 01-14-14


Accepting Sheets

((Your RP Here!))

Open (Started)

The Escapist Avatar Adventure

GMs: Ramthundar, SamG, RagnorakTres
Status: Open (Permanent) / Started

Description: See your avatar? Make it a character. If ever there was a democratic RP, this is it. Permanently open, you can drop in and out as you see fit. There are nominal GMs, but we're mostly there to make huge plot arcs and tank everything. Adaptation is key, since you never quite know what your fellow posters will come up with...

Closed (Started)

Ashlanders: A Post-Apocalyptic Space Western!

GM(s): Fappy and Binnsyboy
Genre: Post-Apocalypse/Sci-Fi/Western
Status: Closed / Started

Description: "The Ashlanders" is an RP about bandit raids, train robberies and good old fashioned wasteland warfare! This RP's best served with some funky beats to set the mood and a quirky imagination. But be warned, not everyone's sanity will survive this disaster!

Battlegrounds

GMs: CounterAttack, RBMidknight, Mr. Omega, socialtangent
Genre: Anime / Video Game
Status: Closed / Started

Description: Gensia, an all-new region in the Pokémon world, plays host to Trainers from foreign lands as they explore the region, challenge the Gyms and investigate the strange differences in Pokémon they thought they knew like the back of their hand.

Battlegrounds is a variation on standard Pokémon role-plays in that it takes a lot of cues from the Blaze Black and Volt White mod for the first Black and White games.

Children of The Shroud

GM(s): NinjaDeathSlap (GM)/Daystar Clarion (Co-GM)
Genre/Type: Dark Fantasy, Stealth
Status: Closed / Started
Description:In the city of Kragenau, when the needy and destitute are spurned and ignored by the Gods, they turn to Mylaviss, Lord of Shadows, and his army of earthly assassins known as the Children of The Shroud.

Demigods 3.0

GM: CounterAttack
Genre Hybrid of Fantasy, Mythology and Modern times
Status: Closed / Started

Description: In the present day, the Ancient Greek Pantheon is alive and well. The gods have children, in a sense: demigods. Half-god, half-human. These individuals, gifted with a portion of their parent's power, are tasked with defending humanity from the monsters found in Greek mythology. For with the power of the divine comes the burden of responsibility.

The third version of the Demigods role-play will see a properly done version of events: the previous edition had many errors that could have been avoided.

The Goldmar Incident: A Superhero Role-Play

GMs: CounterAttack, RatRace123
Genre: Superheroes / Real Life
Status: Closed / Started

Description: In the not-too-distant future, the world is undergoing a major change. Superheroes and villains, once thought to be confined to the silver screen and comic books, are emerging in the present-day world. Individuals across the globe are being gifted with strange new abilities, and no-one can discern their origins.

Though they do not know it, a group of students at Goldmar University are about to join the ranks of the superheroes...

The Pit: Hell Frozen Over (Interest Thread)

GMs: NinjaDeathSlap (GM), Fappy (Co-GM)
Genre: Post-Apocalyptic, Dystopian, Survival

Shapeshifters, humans and everything inbetween a tearing at each others throats. In a desperate bid to try and help calm the chaotic racial relations Rosenheim's first mixed race police unit has been formed.

You are a part of that unit. A rookie cop thrown in at the deep end in city that wants to eat you alive, or at least some of the people who live there do. Specialising in race related crimes you'll have to face the prejudice in others and yourself on a near daily basis. Do you have what it takes to make it on the force?

Rise of the Divines

GM: Terratina. (looking for a co-GM)

Note: I will be using the Prose Descriptive Quality system along with the orokos dice roller in order to determine the outcomes of major actions.

The Road to Indigo (Pokemon RP)

GMs: NeoAC, CounterAttack
Genre: Fantasy/Video Game/Anime
Status: Closed / Started

Description: 8 young aspiring trainers are sent out on a quest in Kanto, 10 years after the original series. Along the way they will acquire new partners, battle Gym Leaders and run into the shadowy syndicate Team Rocket. Basically you've seen the game, you've seen the anime, you can figure out what's going on here.

Two more RPs I'm working on and gathering players in:

Always in the red, your chances of leaving the coal tunnels digging down to hell itself are slim at best. But something is brewing in this prison, rumors of experimentation on prisoners and strange sounds coming from the debts of hell, as the prisoners keep chipping away at the coal.

Nice to see Indigo already up there, but there has been a change in GMs. Mookie Magnus is no longer a co-GM, and CounterAttack has moved up to take that spot.

Here's an RP that I'm working on:

Startng with unexplained UFO sightings, and leading into a possible incursion in Asia, the governments of the world have chosen to activate their planned contingency. Earth's first and last line of defence: The Extraterrestrial Combat Unit; XCOM, for short.

It's a shame we couldn't have kept using the old thread since that had a nice history to it and some GM interviews too but oh well, guess it wasn't really being used much any-more. Here's two submissions, one of my own RP's and another that I'm a co-GM in:

JoJo:
It's a shame we couldn't have kept using the old thread since that had a nice history to it and some GM interviews too but oh well, guess it wasn't really being used much any-more.

Well, I think that the GM Interviews should still be linked in the OP or something.

@JoJo & @Terratina.: : I'm not continuing the Digests which is why that portion is no longer included in the OP. But I've included a link to the Interviews for those who still want to see 'em.

I could potentially come back to interviewing... the issue, however, is the questions that would be asked. I couldn't think of any other questions to use after the first set of interviews, regardless of who they were aimed at (GMs or players).

TheIronRuler:
I have one submission:

Hey Iron what happened to that WW2 RP everyone was so hyped up about ?

Dreams and ideas had to turn into actual mechanics and story. I'm still trying to work it out, but it doesn't stop me from trying out other ideas.

Slow but steady, like most the RP's I'm in it seems to have gradually morphed into having longer but less frequent posts. The Star Brigade was hijacked by some C.O.L a while back and the corps are leading an assault to get it back. Lime is one of those taking part in the assault and Kalade is one of the hostages inside the ship :-)

JoJo:

Snip

Good to know it's still going who knows maybe next time the setting is used I might dip back in see how things go.

avouleance2nd:

Cool, if there is something after Star Brigade I probably won't be GMing it though as I have some other ideas for a new original setting or maybe a sequel for an RP I was running that finished earlier this year. You're welcome to come back any time though :-)
