I've been moving characters connected to inactive or moved deviantart accounts into the DUMP folder (Miscellaneous and bases> DUMP). I have already gone through the NPCs and Villian sections.
If you have characters you no longer wish to use, please remove them or leave a comment here for me to move them. I'm only doing this so others won't comment on the profile and never receive a reply back!
Also I mentioned this a bit on my new character profile for Rooster, but me and Meibatsu are really interested in removing the DC/YJ references and developing B3 ("beyond season 3" i.e. the future) as a natural route for that. (In other words, it's so far into the future.. all the dc superheroes died lol. It's your own playground now!) SGPA in its title doesn't actually reference DC or YJ either which is convenient!
We actually wondered whether it'd make sense for us to revamp SGPA into this style or make a new group all together (more clean, but more effort to redo everything haha--plus we'd lose the smaller folders Meibatsu paid for with the group subscription.) I don't think SGPA as a group really depends on the DC universe for its foundation, so it'd be fine from this point on to distance from it.
Either way, let us know what you think!
the characters I have only used them in the beginning.
Isi-a's characters I know have there own world to play in now (with the exclusion of Night Hunter who is in both)
Synergy's a little dependent to the story line but I was thinking of completely revamping her like Aqualannis is doing Aquarius/Nicole
She can be moved to the inactive folder but I'd rather Teia stay (though I may tweak her a bit as well) she has more tied in to the group at the moment to move her.
I'm sure isi-a, AquAlannis , and I will still chat and create scenarios for each other even if our Oc's are no longer teammates from the SGPA.
I'm actually excited for the change of place! 'v'
ill probably remove night from this universe altogether but it would be awesome if we could still have ocs that are friends or teammates.
im thinking of creating 2 new ocs, one good and one bad, and having them battle for control over a city~ so if you or Al want to create
allies for either of them that would be awesome.
but anyways, ill start developing that a bit more when the group definitively makes a move towards this new era and there's more information///
so for now I guess we sit tight. :>
...whut's a flock
HAH.. give him canned anchovies too...
whoa let's not get ahead of ourselves here canned anchovies, psh...spoil him rotten why don't we
(Life sucks. Bad life, stealing all the group fun from me. >.> )
And aw, hope things get better for you! Maybe the group fun will.. put some fun into your life!
Whatever the group decides, I will go for. If it is restructuring and changing the world with everything we have now for a bit later in time or a full change to way ahead with brand new characters. I will miss what we have now but I can bring in others.
It would be nice to have a cohesive plot and gangs controlling specific areas like AquAlannis suggested but we would need someone to set those up and monitor the group making sure that those who are not into doing that are left to their own unless they say they want to be included. If more people were interested I could help in those regards by tossing in ideas. I have a couple of plot, character, and such generators that could help with concepts to use.
I might update my apps to a few years later though and do the kids too.
I don't think we'd make brand new characters : D Or atleast me and Meibatsu aren't going to but other people are free to do so if they please! I think our revamping of the world would be kind of minor--i.e. making the city landscape more cool, like instead of a regular old city, there's tiers to it, maybe an underground black market.. catacombs, etc. (And if it was the future, it would just be this to a great degree, i.e. making fun cool cities, hoorah) I think we might stick with keeping this page/group for that reason, it'd probably be excessive and confusing if we made a new group with the same characters in it?
Hahahhaa, I personally don't like point-based system cause I find them inconvenient and disorganized.. and when they're really organized, a little stiffling since you have to participate in events to earn points (AND IM A LONER THAT LIKES TO WATCH FROM THE SIDELINES, YOU SEE!!) I think it might be cool if we did random generators to produce points and maybe go into plot/themed events from there though. But that's a kind of unconventional system (maybe?).
Oh yeah, do the kids have apps yet??
Oh no I don't mean point system. All my generators do is give things like: a strange man comes along and mentions that the ruler of that area has some money hidden in a cache and he knows where it is but needs help. Or this NPC has curley red hair and blue eyes and likes geraniums. No points to them at all. They just give events and ideas you can use to enhance ideas. Unconventional I find more fun.
The kids do not have apps yet. There had been some time the group was not taking more applications so you could clean out what there was. I wasn't sure if I should do any yet. Should I wait for new sheets?
OOOOH. I see! That might be fun then! I suck at coming up with prompts myself lol. So yeah, that sounds good!
There probably won't be new sheets! I'm not making new apps anyways HAHA, so you can go ahead and make them, I'll probably accept them because I'm a very lazy mod lol
I'll see what I can get and give you a list or two.
LOL. So it won't matter if I use another sheet or still the same one?
Okay! Yeah, if we were to do.. prompt driven events.. I'd want to somehow encourage ocs interacting with each other like.. a murder mystery game or something.
UHH if your old sheet references DC/YJ, it might be confusing but I don't think I'll trash it or anything. I'm only moving inactive ones.
that sounds like fun
no it would be a different type of sheet. I'll do one up and see what you think.
I think I prefer the idea of making a new group for this new world... mostly because a few of my characters (Leira and maybe Qeurt) probably wouldn't be alive by that year lol... and I can't even think of not having them around ;_;...
SCI FI OR MAGIC INDUCED....
OH NO, YEAH! We weren't think about revamping old chars and making them happen in the future, just.. uh.. shifting them into the future. Through various ways, naturally immortal, longevity serums, becoming robots, time travel etc. of course if someone wants to revamp a character into the future, they can! But the previous way is how me and meibatsu are doing it.
Meibatsu also just imed me that well in the future, her oc, Johnny Keith probably triggers a nuclear fall out around the world and characters can get stuck/frozen in time through some kind of... nuclear reason as well haha
And I absolutely love the idea of something that's set in the future with a history of heroes and vigilantes but still allows for more independence and original storytelling rather than being sort of tied down to canon.
Also, I live for mafia/gang stuff so I totally like the idea of either having different factions just kind of fighting for control or each faction is kind of made up of vigilantes who have different ideas of how to save the city.
EITHER WAY, if we do end up going the sort-of rp group route I'd be super interested in helping with whatever I can ;v;/
I really like the idea of factions controlling different parts of the city as a premise though. And also yeah, definitely future and independence *_____* I think theme events is as close to cohesive plots we can have..
UHHH.. AND HAHA.. I don't know how the premise would be revamped since I never followed it too well to begin with (i.e. I made only lowkey/indirect villain and villainous NPC characters haha)
I think SGPA would still exist as like a justice group. In the B3 future me and Meibatsu rp in, SGPA has disbanded (I think) and OCs like solarcat have gone missing, but I think there's some foreshadowing it might come up again.
Did you have an idea about what kind of premise would be more open? I like how we have "good guy" and "bad guy" profile distinctions because it gives me some expectations on the morals/personalities of the OC's lumped in. But yeah, I've never made a superhero OC so I'm not that personally committed to fighting crime through OCs either LOL
It doesn't include Teia or Aqua, which is why I've kept a SGPA version of Night in the group/// ;3;
But if the group does go ahead with the changes, I'd love to have the three of us still
collaborating/in a team somehow even if I remove Night from the SGPA-verse for good.
Yeah I like that too! And maybe it could still incorporate teams but separated into good/bad teams fighting
for control over their city? People could recruit new characters into their syndicate/mafia/gang family thing. :>
Also I think I read in Rooster's profile that you can make your own home cities, so people could collaborate?
Just my thoughts. ;v;
YEAH! That'd be fun still!
Yeah, I would definitely keep teams. I think they're fun! And I think they spring up kind of naturally from people interacting with each other and characters forming friends and alliances and what not.
AND YES. I'm really into people bringing their own spin on things into the mix and I think the ability to make up cities really helps that. Me and Mei made up two cities already, then we can open it up for people to collaborate/bring in some ideas for a couple of other majors cities.. and then people could make up their own personal cities if they wanted to as well. The last part I think being nice if someone wants to give their char a super extensive and independent backstory where they can go "she was the best scientist in x city" without stepping on anyone's toes.
futuristic this future is... like technology and if superpowers
are still relevant and such.
Also thanks for the feedback! I think it would be fun too. And not so hard to revamp if you have characters dependent on the DC/YJ universe since it will mostly.. stay the same context. We'll see.
But yeah I'm somewhat planning on wanting to redo my current ocs since when I drew it and joined it wasn't what I wanted. So I kinda want to redo them TvT but ooo you can remove my apps from the group since I'll be redoing it. But if y'all do do a new group then I guess I'll just wait for that. I can't wait to see what happens uvu
And oh cool! yeah, definitely redo it if you feel like it! I'll just keep your apps in until they're updated!
