Arimoi is inspired by Ryslig in its base premise, but has a completely different setting, a heavily modified bestiary, and makes people-eating an optional part of the premise, secondary to the basic conflict of turning into a monster in a strange land and all the alienation that brings.
It's also a musebox-format game, meaning that instead of having one, singular, always-running timeline directed by mod plots, it's both a dressing-room style open setting and a space for players to pitch their own plots, set up and play AUs, find PSLs - all along the premise of Monster Problems.
Give it a look-over, and a shot!
(made a proper Advertisement Plurk on the modplurk because the last time i did this it was on my personal.)
(and also not really a nice solid pitch.)
(so please replurk this one! we are now open, accepting apps, and ready for everyone to get their RP on.)
Please bring me FFXVers...
i have a kid from smtiv but i think i'm the only one left playing from that duology in any active capacity lol. i'm probably going to bring in a character from pokemon special in the future, and then some other assorted obscure dudes.
i could fin-ally have my merm
I'm confused. Why are there apps if it's a musebox?
I have a Nanashi.
so i can vet players i'm not personally familiar with! "musebox" in this case doesn't mean, like, just-me-and-friends, i'm using it to mean that this is more of an "rp club" than a "game".
....oh god that doesn't make any sense. uh.
It's so that Holo can make sure that not just anyone comes in, because sometimes that ends in more toxic players sliding in and causing stress for other players
so, like, you know how in traditional dwrp games, it's a setting, everything that happens in it is canon, it's fairly tightly controlled by mods, the calendar is always running, and that's what defines the game, is access to that setting
I guess i'm just confused at how thorough the app is for a game that's just for trying out different concepts and is more muse-boxy
also I'm in love with the phrase "horrific puree of content" so thank you for that
i typed out and deleted an explanation a few times but i think everything i could explain here has probably been explained more thoroughly in the game info itself
: ...My wife is eventually going to play Krishna so. :V
the app serves basically the same function as it does in games, which is to vet players the mod(/s) isn't personally familiar with so that players can be assured a non-toxic game environment and a certain level of quality
So a more beefy version of invite-only.
Well, more beefy to allow more inclusion.
nah, i think invite vs app and one-game-setting vs musebox are two separate axes of, like, how games are
Yeah basically this gives a window that invite only doesn't offer, right? :0
Like with invite only a lot of good players might never have a shot
But with this, a player can prove themselves capable of joining in
it's a bit of an experiment! traditional games take a hell of a lot of time and effort to mod. i'm trying to see if i can run an rp environment that has some of the same perks of a game without being as modwork-intensive as a regular game, and also allows for kinds of rp that traditional games sometimes leave you itching for.
kind of a halfway point between games (rigid, structured, labor-intensive) and dressing rooms (loose, malleable setting, chaotic/anarchic, no modwork)?
especially since i think that there are a lot of things we take for granted about how games work that were originally thought up to prevent powergaming and infomodding in a really roundabout way
No, that's what I meant it seems to have the spirit of invite-only in that familiar connection is desired. But it opens doors to people outside of the circle by requiring an actual app.
Instead of requiring the blessing of the circle, as in invite-only
now everyone join us im lonely
But I want to get my new muse a little more working out before I write her app so...
given how long this community's been around, i think it's better to confront those kinds of things on a player-by-player ooc behavior basis, and avoid restricting the freedom of players who won't abuse character powers etc.
YEAH THOUGH you guys got it, i got on a tangent about game mechanics.
also i would love some eorzeans hi c:
all i have is a ridiculous overpowered legendary idiot who is soon to be very depowered
you tempter (but I mean transformations…)
(also gonna be tryin' a new muse out there)
monsterrrrsssss. become ooonnnee
(nuzlocke!noctis. because we need N-octis. and his fluffbirb stella.)
(aw, kiddos! /nod /thumbs up!)
okay but can i write a personality section while mobile........
i'm gonna go RNG for monster ;3
...........can i laugh that i got one of my picks. the cat.
I admit, I haven't looked at Ryslig because I'm a wuss and don't really wanna RP people-eating. I kinda like this idea. ^^
whoops i missed this last night. OH JEEZ.
i'm playing hallelujah from pre-game so that he's not flipping out over needing to return home for Responsibility Reasons
but he'd probably latch to a nanashi anyways.
I added a short section to the application page to clarify what specifically I'm looking for with the apps. Hopefully this reduces some stress over the intersection of "it's a simple app" and "apps are a quality check".
The quality markers I'm looking for don't require giant essay app sections or huge blocks of introspection in tags, so if you can show your character has depth and you have a handle on that depth in as little as three personality paragraphs, you'll be golden.
looks at my noct app.......... yup
