I think we should focus on not having a villain to attack to (knowing who did it etc) but instead start with some smaller htings, and as the story develops having the Chao find out more and more about what happened. But, then we'll need to focus on What happened?

I'm currently thinking of some chao colony / settlement in a remote area that is only sparsely populated by intelligent beings (which is where the island part would be GREAT) and something happening to them, forcing them to leave and start their adventure, so to say.

Wow. There's been a lot of updates since i've been gone.

TOO many for me to keep up with, actually! ^~^"

I'll wait until the plot part is settled to pitch in some more stuff.

Hey actually maybe I could squeeze in time to join this Rp, chaolin? :D

I had the idea of each island being based off of some kind of human quality like grace, greed, happiness, fear, faith*, maybe? And working with nacho's problem idea could mean that these chao are trying to restore the island to what the quality should be maybe?

*we don't have to use this idea, we could easily go for different themes like elemental ones or something, but i kinda like the idea of solving problems to restore the island... e.g. a electric island where all the power is turned out?

I've updated the post with a plot that's kinda okay as-is but i'd like to flesh out things a little more. I also cleaned things up.

I've been thinking about that point system again, but I agree that we're probably mature enough to not go overboard with things. I think we're almost ready to start but i'd like to hear a final opinion from everyone, so if you want you can start creating your characters and send them in once i've created the 'official' topic :D

Also, who'll know for sure they're gonna join this?

Plot sounds fine, but each character is probably going to need a little more motivation to go help other than "a weird guy asked them too." I supposed that varies from character to character though.

I also really, REALLY love the idea of each island's conflict being based around a human feeling. For example, the greed island could tie into Nacho's "thief" idea (though obviously on a grander scale).

to be honest i like both. as in, both the human quality and elemental things to add a bit of variety. And assuming this thing gets popular, im guessing each island will take between 10-25 pages or something? idk
(also relying on you guys' creativity because oh man! there have been some great great things came up with.

I really like the human qualities idea, we should do it. That could open up some interesting themes. I would almost suggest doing the seven deadly sins, but I don't think this forum is ready for lust island, hah... Anyway the elemental idea, bleh not so much, particularly since Ciao's RP is already covering that base.

And I agree with Ciao about motivation. Better motivation will be needed for some chao. Not all characters can be filled to the brim with wanderlust. I'd suggest making the threat somehow quite obvious, legitimately troublesome, so that even the reluctant characters are convinced, "we need to get to the root of this and stop it."

What do you suggest? Should we add in some sort of 'terrible thing' that's happened to them like a chao was murdered or missing or something?

People getting abducted would be excellent; it's bother dangerous and gives more reason to venture in an attempt to rescue them.

this could complicated things, but maybe some chao are abducted/whatever while some are heroes and the rp could consist of both groups trying to free themselves/the others respectively :0? idk, or maybe just 1 or 2 can take the role of an abductee. we could mark our posts with [[STATUS:LOCATION]] so people dont get confused? shruggu ;w;

also i just really like the idea of a vibrant neon casino city thing being reduced to a dark and murky polluted ruin, then returning to its former glory. this could work in with greed, maybe the light was stolen? idk

Both excellent ideas.

I'm quite willing to contribute an abducted character, myself.

Maybe you should go into detail about the no godmidding rule to clarify some points about what's not going to be accepted as well as what is accepted but would be frowned upon.

Godmodding isn't just being uber powerful, but it's also having an uncanny ability to always know what to do.
Like, if you know exactly where to go to get in on the action even if your character would have no motivation for doing so otherwise, that's godmodding just as much as being able to control all four elements with impunity is godmodding.

...On that note, I feel like we should severely tone down the elemental powers for this one. It discourages god-modding as well as allows the character to be defined by their personality, not their ability.

I'm making a bunch of characters that have either a elemental power or none at all.
