Nightfall: Chapter 2
Two years after the events of Dream Drop Distance, the Darkness became so great that it swallowed the worlds, locking them away within its merciless abyss.
Twilight Town, now covered in eternal night, stands as one of last Sanctuaries of Light. It is where players begin their journey.
Ever resourceful, the Moogles have created a safe place for refugees. They have charged the Denizens of Light with finding Castle Oblivion: it holds a key to the puzzle of the lost worlds.
But within the dark shadows of the sanctuary world a powerful dark force still looms, waiting to strike. Each survivor must choose whether to go to Castle Oblivion or stay behind to protect the world from the dragon that lurks in the shadows.

Well thus far, I've heard a hand full of people not aggreeing with this, sooo it seems that some people don't have a maaajor problem with 'selfcesting'...I think I like the sound of 'masturbating' more. Like I said before, the rper should be held accountable if others are obviously excluded and said rper didn't attempt to include fellow members even when hearing suuuch complaints.
Yes rpg (altough it's an epic fanfiction itself none of this is coming out in KH3) is about interaction, but I find it stupid to limit people more of their creativity of what they can and cannot make. I thought an rpg was about bringing forth creativity to interact, but now I have to limit myself more. Sure, I have a charrie who partner is played by another, since I never planned both characters indepthly. Somethings are easier to express from the creator alone.
Yes sure rping in a group session is fun (when its active of-course) and so is masturbating, buuut shouldn't the rper have a choice in how they want their characters interacting as well as the story of their characters?
Sooo if I wanted a Heartless x Nobodies dynamics, I will now have to depend on another person to rp the other to show relations, versus easily nipping it in the bud and doing it myself. Now if thaaat's not the case, then a certain character in the rejected pile shooould be dragged back.
There's a line between moderating and dictating. If a looooot of people nooow have a problem with 'masturbating', then fine, but there are those who find this 'bullshit'. And there's enough current characters now with the dynamics you call illegal, and personally I find it ridiculous to cut people's limited creativity more in an epic fanfiction of an rpg.
My points of rebuttal has already been stated iiin my haiku and some extras: 1.) don't punish the concept, punish the member, especially if they had warnings with it. 2.) We are all old enough to not be held by the hands for EVERYTHING including how we want to run our characters, and no one wants their creativity in showing character dynamics cut even more including the right to masturbate. 3.) We have a handful of characters already like this...talk about enforcing too little too late, especially if these characters are already in action. I doubt you would toss these characters into the recycle bin. 4.) I'm sure we're all creative enough to not let anyone fall by the wayside and ignored, which happens IC where there's a group session and nooot masturbating. 5.) There aaare people who disagree with this. 6.) For this to not happen again, I think it would be wise to ask the site as a whole of their preference, especially if it affects the community versus throwing a rule out there that we have to just...merely nod our heads at.
I will say that the new rule. What is it? It's supposed to be bolded. Buuut I will say that in the Rules the translation of Character Death displayed in that thread compared to the link...doesn't translate identically.
One sounds like 'anyone can slay your charrie' and the link says 'character deaths are to be consent unless natural scenarios that would cause death'.
I'll let Seph address all the first part. I've given my opinion of the matter, and even if you have been talking to people who agree with you, from what I've observed y'all ARE in the minority here. But that's Seph's decision, not mine.
I WILL, however, confirm that Seph is currently reworking and clarifying the character death system. Until it's reworked (Which will be soon), just try not to kill anyone : )
I say that we should hold another poll, this time about "selfcest". Last time with the character limit poll it worked wonderfully asking the members their opinion about that issue, so I do believe repeating the experience would be very productive again.
And also some explanation because I for one, can't follow what this is all about. All I see is some quote from another thread where no link to is made and a loaded discussion. The big picture is eluding me.
SO, about the whole selfcesting/masturbation what-have-you, I'm... I dunno, I'm somewhere chillin' in the middle. RPing with yourself, I think, is a no-no. Dun do it. Why? This is not a fanfiction. If you want to RP with yourself go write a fanfiction.
But characters with intertwining histories... I dunno, they can work if played right. If they're best friends, they can be constantly searching for each other. That, however, doesn't really give way to much development besides "OMG WHERE TO LOOK!!?!!!!!?!1!?" I'm fine the rules 'cuz I only have one character it seems like a good idea.
However, the main reason people WANT to RP with themselves is that nobody wants to take their characters, plain and simple. If handed a character with a defined personality who doesn't contribute directly to the plot (see: canon character) is NOT appealing to me in the least. I don't think I'm alone in that sentiment. Nobody's asking anybody to make a character from the same world as another's original world because they wouldn't want the same. Or, maybe they would. Maybe someone out there is just looking for a nice history to use, maybe they don't want to create another world.
So, I'm extending an invitation. If anybody wants to create a character from Desya's world, just float me a PM. It's a rather easy history, huge group of corporations poisons main water source, kills a crapton of people, some people get supah powaz because it messes with their DNA and whatnot. School gets formed for those people in complete secrecy, sh*t hits the fan, everyone presses the GTFO button and GTFOs in SPACESHIIIPS~
The thing is, I really, REALLY doubt that anybody would take me up on that offer. People enjoy being creative. That, and a lot of people have characters already made that they KNOW they can play and already have their own histories. I'm guilty of that. Most people want their character to be entirely original. That's what original characters are all about. And when everybody on a site wants to be entirely original, they feel the need to play an entire world of characters rather than just a few. It happens, and I'm glad steps are being taken to more fully integrate everyone with everyone else, but it's just a bit too optimistic for me. Maybe tone it down just a smidge if that's even being considered, but I just hope I'm not going to stir up a flamefest argument.
Yeah, if that made any sense then yay. Also, another thing I must address is the lack of cookiegum. The mines have been plagued by disasters, you don't even WANT to hear about what happened in the sugar cookiegum mine, but it'll take a while to clean up. I have reserves, though, but we need to share. *places a nice, full jar of individually wrapped cookiegum and melts out of the thread .-.*
"Please do not make original characters that are intended to interact with other original characters you also play. While it will not remain specifically against the rules, unless they have the reason to take up one character slot, it promotes self-interaction and cuts others out of your writing.
Thought I should throw this out there, as I have the feeling some people missed it. This is NOT a new rule. It is a statement that characters who do not follow this are highly discouraged. It's quite possible, on a case by case basis, that some profiles will be rejected because of this. However, it isn't a blanket statement that all such characters will not be allowed.
