Dolphins are some of the smartest animals, yes, but by human standards… Let's say you should praise the god that forces them to stay handless and underwater.

I love it! I dabble in the roleplaying part of Improbable Island and I always have so much fun...
The voices in my head tell me that we saved the world. However, they also told me that George Clooney's face is on the dollar bill, so... meh. The voices are more fun, anyway.

Me too. I think that Meta Knight is a little overpowered. If I am going to change, I already have one.
And I'm not going to say who he is. Okay, I will. It's Isaac, from The Binding of Isaac.

*ponders* First, we need people. With only the two of us, things'll get real old real fast.

We don't all need to be human. I, myself, prefer to be a humanoid animal when roleplaying something. We can have abilities an the like, but also rules so we're not just killing each other left and right. That's no fun, either.

It could be like a tavern setting, where different folks would meet up and act out the days misadventures. These are just basic you-probably-already-knew-this type stuff, but that's what I like.

The one I wanted to use was Donquixote Doflamingo cos he's awesome but I can't find a picture that fits the site constraints.

Well... Can a undead little blonde girl that murders everyone who stands still around her and has two high ranked demons as friends/bodyguards play with you? Or should I change my avatar too? :lol:

Well, with my sig and all, I guess a lot of people already know who my avatar is... so...

I will throw my hat into this. Personally an RPG forum where we just go all out and brawl with each other in increasingly improbable ways sounds like a hoot and a half.

You can do what I do, pick a picture of him, put it in Paint (or any other image editor) go slowly reducing it to a size that fit, and by slowly I mean, select the entire pic, move it to the top left, making sure we can at least see his face, and then manually move the borders of the screen to a smaller size, repeating until it works. Also, save it as a .gif, it reduces the file size.

Your avatar is familiar, but I don't know exactly who she is.

Also, I should already have changed my avatar, gimme a minute.

It's Alice from Shin Megami Tensei / Persona. The pure, innocent, sweet little girl that's second only to Thanatos in the Death Arcana and will just ask you nicely "Will you die for me?" because only the dead are her friends. And that's of course, while she's summoning an army of Card Knights to murder you in the single most powerfull insta-death spell of the games.

Sometimes she's seen with uncles Nebiros and Belial. :D

:gushingaboutcharactersilike:

Of course, for the forum game here, it's just Alice and perhaps some dark/undead related standard powers/spells. If it comes to the powers at all.

I was thinking about that. This will be the discussion/sign-up/rules thread.
But I have to go now :cry: and I should only be back in 1 hour or so.
Also I feel weak. A commander from the strongest pirate in the world, a psycho pathic man child and a very powerful double BFS wielding guy with me, Isaac.
EDIT:
TVTropes pages for the game. And also the wiki. Later I will write my character's characteristics. You can go on discussing the plot and some rules.

Poor Isaac. I'll play with you. You'll be my friend won't you? You'll die for me won't you?

Character Sheet

Name: Alice
Weapon: None (Magic)
-Linked to the limitation in spells.
Powers:
-Death Radius (Rare): Under circunstances of stress or excitement, Alice sometimes manifests her full necromantic power killing all but the most resilient or lucky of those around her by drawing the life out of them. She has no control nor is aware of this power.
-Summoning and Evocation Magic: Since coming back from death, Alice has gained extreme necromantic power. She does not however, control or even grasp the full extent of her skills. She can, however, summon objects like cards or teapots and animate them at will (Her signature Card Knights fight physically in her stead). She also has control over small blasts of energy and elements, like a simple fireball or small ice blast.
Age: Appearance 12, Real Unkown.

NOTES:
-Alice is magically animated undead. As such, normal means of damage heal over time, but she has no means of active regeneration mid combat. Meaning her can seal a bullet wound over a couple of days and not leave a scar, but not in less time than that.
-Her potential power is unknown, but her childish and innocent demeanor prevent her from tapping into her full skills. Sometimes to the point of appearing unaware of her own undeath.
-Nebiros and Belial will not be making an appearance on this itearation, that would be way to overpowered to include.

Name: Isaac
Weapons: "Arrows" (normal: tears) and Bombs
Powers: Items have a different effect on him, grating him a wide variety of abilities and inabilities (?)
Age: Less than 12, I think
Others (?): Normally can carry only 3 items at time: one with a passive effect, an one-use item and another with repeatable usage.
(I'm going now. See ya in 1 hour or so.)

Count Sabrac in the moment I finish reading THE MASSIVE FRIGGIN BACKLOG OF POSTS YOU LEFT ME. Why do I leave my computer again?
Normal people are the easiest to manipulate. Too smart and they have an annoying tendency to catch wind of your plans, too dumb and, in the words of a certain pirate, "You can never tell when they are about to do something incredibly...stupid."
