日本語のRole・Play

Post by Kisshu » Thu 06.05.2008 6:43 pm

だれかしてみたいかなぁ~

I'm wondering if anyone is interested in a Japanese role play. Not off of any manga/anime/pre made story, but just a "do as you go" kinda deal.

For those who don't know, a role play is a game of sorts, where the members "become" a character and play along with others who have become their character and create a story dependant upon the other members.

Those who want to join should be at least an intermediate level Japanese. Participants can type in intermediate/advanced Japanese. Lot's of kanji is allowed (thank you online dictionaries!) just keep in mind the level of the participants, and don't fill your post with so much kanji that it's too intimidating to read.

The "story" should be written in past-tense short form except for quotes (obviously) which can be in any form you like. It will take place in present-day Japan, starting in Tokyo.

Your first post (if interested) should contain the following information about your character (in English... later we'll flip to Japanese)~ (you can attach a picture if you want.)

Name:
Gender:
Age:
Nationality:
Appearance:
Other:
Picture:

My character (haha~ I'm gonna play myself... how original... but I've never done it before in a RP, so it sounds like fun~~ PS- I made up my last name *3* )

Name: Kailene Koski
Gender: Female
Age: 17
Nationality: American>> Finish/Norweigen
Appearance: Redish Blonde hair, Green eyes, Glasses, 5'9"
Other: Exchange student

After we get a few members, we'll start~

too bad. At first I thought this would be something like everyone playing in Tony's Sengoku setting. That would be interesting.....Of course, setting it all up would be a pain.

You know, I've never heard of an RP without any restrictions before. That could be very interesting.

The way we used to do it, one person would start off telling the story, and the next person would continue it and so forth. It could be quite unpredictable at times as a result. One moment your walking down the street to buy a beer at the local bar and the next minute a giant vacuum cleaner sucks you up into space whereupon you are attacked by two headed beavers, and so on. ;)

that isn't roleplay, that's round-robin storytelling.

Roleplay without restrictions is like when you are playing police/robbers with your brother.
"I shot you"
"did not, you missed"
"Did so, I hit,"
"Did not!"
"did so!!
"MOOOOM! Jamie is cheating!"

Hey, I've already been paid, and I don't get royalties. This was a public service announcement, not a commercial. ;)

... a role play with restrictions (except against indecency, which is obvious) is like life... right? O_o

Anyway, we only have one other entrant so far.... so we can't start yet.

How about a role-play set in the world of ゆきの物語, which is the Sengoku Jidai with fantasy elements?
