Basic above.

If you feel it was a specific user that made it bettersay what it was they did that made the RPG better. 'Their just great' and 'love everything they write' is bullsh!t lol

Loner's nightclub was honestly more enjoyable than most large RPGs. Back then random interaction happened all the time. I don't care about the quality or novelty of writing. If I did, I'd go read a book. I care about fun.

@_animus_: Well, I suppose one of my favorite standalone RPGs was Light Wars, Waaaaay back. Was a noob then, but still a Lantern fanboy. Maybe I'm biased, but I enjoyed reading it. Didn't post a lot though- me being a newb. Too bad that can't happen again, what with the CVnU's laws.

@_animus_: Again, it may of been because I was a biased Lantern fanboy. On to what made it unique, it put everyone on a level where EVERYONE could participate. I saw many, many flavors the CV writing in that RPG.

For me it was the LoS Vs. JLI RPG we did back in Prime. The diversity and the amount of characters that was in that was crazy. There was a great build up to the RPG as well. There were a couple of subplots in the RPG too, it wasn't just a villains against heroes thing, I remember Brynhyld trying to use her magic to coerce LL into joining up with the JLI, it was pretty tight.

@andres_knightfall: I wished I had stayed throughout the entirety of the RPG, instead of going off to play Pokemon or yell at the power company or whatever made me get off the computer. I remember about to get into it with Impero and Libs before I procrastinated out.

Your saying you liked it because you knew you were on one side or the other, clean cut right?

#20 Posted by _Wolf_Spider_ (824 posts) - - Show Bio

@andres_knightfall: Probably because it's incredibly hard to do and incredibly ineffective... unless your Spider-Man.

Looked that RPG up, and it hit me- my posts in that RPG were probably the best I've ever written.

#21 Posted by O_Din (159 posts) - - Show Bio

@_animus_: Yes, there was also a long string of cannon that went into that rpg; (I believe it was during the Lebeau-Cotalliard Era) Babs and G were the biggest and BEST villains on the site at that time. The ZS, Mobb Deep, LOVE , ICE were all teams that failed against that faction. (I may be wrong about ICE though)

#22 Posted by _Animus_ (2141 posts) - - Show Bio

@valkerie_: So your sayin what made it the best was

  • Build up
  • diversity
  • clear moral line

As for the topic at hand. (In no particular order.)

Andferne vs Gambler: What happens in Vegas. Why? It was the ending of a chapter for me, and after that rpg wise nothing was ever the same.

The old G.I. Joe rpg we did. It was laid back and fun.

Every ICE rpg we put together. Why? Because it was never about who was the toughest, best, etc. It was a group of like minded individuals getting together to tell a story. From the first rpg where we put the team together, to the second where Darkchild turned back into his evil self. To reality hoping to save a doomed Earth from LstPaladin's time, and even space fairing escapades to resolve Paragon's love life (lol). Best times I ever had on the Vine.

My battles with Nighthunter that are too numerous to list. Why? Because he was one of the few who kept surprising me as his writing evolved.

@_animus_: There are more I can name.

Loner's was a location thread named. Another location thread that was great for a time with interaction was the Nine Lives Cafe.

This part would be correct. ICE never tangled with them when they were the power couple of the Vine.

My best rpg has to be Olympus. It sprouted a multitude of storylines and I attained a network of good friends as well as dope writers. As far as I remember everyone sold one another as best as they possibly could. Charmix and Clara Mass working together, Alceus and his crew falling prey to their mischevious mechanisms, and truth be told it felt like an actual story. It had build up, character, everything in my opinion. A heroic couple (Alceus/Angeni) plagued by a selfish woman who only desired power and recognition through shameful deeds. It would have ended with the death of Clara, but Angeni went and left -___- Overhaul that's my shining moment. That's the rpg I'll be proud of the most. A group of people, not considered the A List, put together a nicely crafted story in our own little corner and did some amaze ball stuff. That was a summer I evolved as a writer. I embraced the villain role, happily learned from others, and had a good time logging on to see what was happening in my absence. I could go into more detail, but that's enough niceness for today =P

@andres_knightfall: @angeni: @madame_blossom: and Victor Grey (wherever he may be).

One of my favorite RPs was one "Tonight We Die Like Heroes!" It was Closure's idea to have a parallel world overlap prime with our counterparts entering our world. This was a great RP because you could make a "What If" version of your character and you got to see different versions of other characters. It was also great because you had the option of fusing both characters and creating a bigger 'what if' character.

Now a question looms, what if we had finished the RP? Lol.

@crimson_eagle: That sounds like mad fun, too bad the rules stop that. Unless it was noncanon.

@closure: Can I get a link?

@alurvelve: That second one I never heard of. We do need more threads like that though,laid back interactions.

@_animus_: It was actually pre-nU. When we could do what we wanted in Prime (within reason of course).

My favourite RPG was probably the destruction of Liberty. Not only is it the most significant rp I have done, it is also an rp where my actions made a big difference. I hope to be a part of or make similar threads in the future.

So you liked it because your own actions made an impact, got it.

@_animus_: We all enjoy that though, don't we? Why would you enjoy something you feel you had made no impact in, or got no notice for? Pyre done top notch posts in that RP, he made impact for a reason, but that's a personal reason why an event is good. Not so much the event in itself.

@pyrogram: It happens. Sometimes there's too much going on for everybody to do something worth remembering.

#37 Posted by LastPyre (1009 posts) - - Show Bio

@animus

It was not just because I had made an impact. It was one of my earlier RP's, in fact it was the first open RPG that was on a scale this big. Which is a big thing if you are new. Imagine that in your first rp you destroyed the Empire State Building. You would remember it for a while for sure.

@lastpyre: true. I see your point, the impact was mutual.

No doubt Eddy vs dupe creed was great fun from my end.

Though i did really enjoy the the first major rp i was in. It was about rescuing a pregnant Dark Huntress from Gambler and whatever team he had at the time. The COP's all went in i just remember somebody saying they liked that i pulvaized some guy with a sewer cap lid.
