Title: Am I the only one who can't wait for V2?
Serapindal - March 25, 2006 04:20 AM (GMT)
I mean, I just watched Battle Royale yesterday, but I'm already pumped up to join. I can't wait until Version 2 starts. I think it's really a bummer for those who have to wait six months to play again, but than again, it's a game. What do you think?
LadyMakaze - March 25, 2006 05:14 AM (GMT)
Oh yeah, I can think of plenty of people who are just hyped and jumping to get on with v2, myself included. All my characters have bit the bullet and now all I can do is camp out in the Other RP thread @_@ Where no one seems to go that often.
And speaking of which, if you ever get bored or want to practice RP-ing, the Other RP forum is the place to go.
Kaishi - March 25, 2006 05:28 AM (GMT)
I am amazingly excited for v2 to start. ^_^
It's a bummer to wait, yeah, but, like you said, it's a game... that some people are starting to get obsessed by. ;) Don't worry, though, Serapindal, we're getting close to the Official Pregame Roleplaying. That may hype the Other RPing board up a whole lot more, don't you all think? :o

Dude I'm psyched for v2! I showed my friends the BR movie and they nearly puked with joy. So my brother-in-arms has registered recently and will be playing my character's rival (already got some cool shyt planned). And what's this Official Pre-Game RPing aboot?
Kaishi - March 25, 2006 05:46 AM (GMT)
is the unofficial
Pregame Roleplay thread.
Basically, what pregame roleplaying is is roleplay done before the game has even really started. A chance to flesh out your characters before they're thrown onto the island, develop "history" with their classmates, and what not for flashbacks. Just a little chance to roleplay as your character a tad earlier than you would if they're wasn't a Pregame roleplay. Done at their school, for clarity, since I'm coming off of a sugar rush right now and may not be typing anything clearly. :P
Megami - March 25, 2006 07:09 AM (GMT)
I've recruited a couple new faces for the next go-around. I'm stoked about v2, just ready to get some new roleplayers in and see some new characters, ya know?
And to add to Kaishi's explanation about the pregame roleplay... it's a chance to show that your character had a life outside of the program, where you roleplay as them with no knowledge (or limited knowledge, since you know, SOTF DID air nationwide) of Survival of the Fittest or the fact that they'd ever be participating in it. It's like... just roleplaying your character as a normal person leading an every day life... establishing friendships, rivalries, relationships, and so on.

Yeah, that's the great thing about the 'Other RPs' board. Even those who're still active can go and fire one off to get their creative juices flowing, you know?
Speaking of that, looks like I have some major posting to do tomorrow...(after hockey, and we'll see if I even get a chance to with what I'm hopefully getting lined up for the night...)
Serapindal - March 25, 2006 04:31 PM (GMT)
I just know my luck. I'll probably be killed in the first day. :D
Megami - March 25, 2006 05:29 PM (GMT)
Ahaha. We have curses around here, to boot. There's the Curse of the Admin... Kaishi's characters all seem to bite it nearly as soon as she creates them... and now that Riser's co-admin, the curse has passed on to her too... I mean, how unlucky can you be to have two of your characters rolled in one roll?
On the bright side, once V2 starts, you can always just make another one! ^_^
riserugu - March 25, 2006 05:39 PM (GMT)
That was my first time ever being rolled too, first time and I'm down two characters. :lol:
Serapindal - March 26, 2006 01:16 AM (GMT)
How many characters are you allowed to make?
Slayer - March 26, 2006 01:46 AM (GMT)
Well, by pre-character cap rules, you would've been allowed to make as many as you wanted as long as there were only three at a time. Might be different for v2 though.
Cycokiller - March 26, 2006 06:04 AM (GMT)
Sweet. The pre-game RP'll give the reader an idea of the feelings the students had towards one-another, and better yet give the RPer more of a confliction (or perhaps a motive, heheh) to kill their fellow students. Can't wait!
Slayer - March 26, 2006 07:48 AM (GMT)
Exactly, just like how my recent post there was used to set up some enemies for my character come v2, that way he has more motivation.
Kris - March 26, 2006 08:19 AM (GMT)
Well I can't wait for v2 also! I have only participated in one BR game and that was with limited people. It was very fun, although its in the final gaming stage so it'll be over in the next four days at least.
But I'm excited to join this site and try something new! ^_^
Bloody_Fists - March 26, 2006 02:02 PM (GMT)
Wait! theres an rp where we use our v2 guys? if so tell me where this rp be...
Swoosh - March 26, 2006 05:32 PM (GMT)
Most BR RP's don't make it past the classroom scene, this is probably one of the best that's around, cause it's gone all the way through to the end (or so I hope x__X)
And yeah, it's in the AU RP board, 'An International Phenomenon.' It's been there for a while :P
Bloody_Fists - March 26, 2006 05:42 PM (GMT)
Oh right, i thought that was just random made up on the spot people. oh well.
Cycokiller - March 27, 2006 01:15 AM (GMT)
So is the RPin' in "An International Phenomenon" canon or is it just for kicks? And will there be another pre-game RP shortly before v2?
Megami - March 27, 2006 01:35 AM (GMT)
Well... I'd planned on it just being for kicks when I created it... though it does showcase some of the known V2 characters, so... *blinks*.

Well, the characters are canon, but the school may or may not be the canonical v2 school.
Minase - March 27, 2006 09:04 PM (GMT)
I think pretty much everything RP'ed in the 'International Phenomonomomomomonom....'...thread can be used in v2 except the school's name, thats really up to Kai, but all the characters and story lines we develop will work fine because we can be pretty much sure that they will work under any RP situation with a BR-like premise, I.E schoolkids kill eachother.
Kaishi - March 27, 2006 09:10 PM (GMT)
No, the school used in the International thread is not the one that will be participating in v2. Like Minase said, you can use any of that information that you want for your v2 character, BUT, it might be a little weird transfering your International character over to the Official Pregame roleplay once it begins. The Pregame thread is the one that will count more than the International one. ;)
Slayer - March 28, 2006 01:27 AM (GMT)
Building off of that idea, Kaishi, maybe when the Pregame RP (which I assume will have the picked school) or v2 comes around, we could change the name of the school in the International RP to that of the chosen one?
Megami - March 28, 2006 01:47 AM (GMT)
Probably have to change the locations and all that if ya did.
Slayer - March 28, 2006 03:02 AM (GMT)
All you'd have to do was edit any post clearly mentioning the school by name so it names the other school.
Megami - March 28, 2006 03:40 AM (GMT)
Don't think that's mentioned much, if at all, so you're right, shouldn't be a big deal.
Croco - March 28, 2006 08:30 AM (GMT)
I was thinking of introducing my main V2 character in that RP (Megami knows about him cause I've been asking her input on him), but I think it'd be better off if I waited for the official V2 Pregame to start in order to introduce him. I'm not gonna give much in the way of details...the only thing I will mention is that he's multilingual and that his primary language is NOT English or Japanese. But he has excellent command of English., so he'll use that primarily...but that's it...you'll have to wait for the V2 Pregame for more...
Minase - March 28, 2006 02:54 PM (GMT)
I think it would work better to have a whole new official thread, just for the feel of it, but everything we RP'ed in the Internatioal thread could be easily transfered into the official one. I mean all the characters, background stories and rivalrys/friendships we have built already should'nt go to waste over something as trivial as the wrong school name, but at the same time editing the unoficial thread to make it oficial seems pointless, there should definately be a whole new, oficial thread when the time comes.
Kaishi - March 28, 2006 09:43 PM (GMT)
Um, that was the idea all along, Minase. :)

I knew that :rolleyes:
Croco - March 31, 2006 02:28 AM (GMT)
Meep...too late...he's already in the International Phenomonon RP. But that's okay...more fun for everyone, eh?
Minase - April 2, 2006 10:05 PM (GMT)
I was thinking about making a topic about this but I'm going to post here instead, the thread title seems to work around my concern:
We know so little about V2! I know it might still be a bit away and all, and I do want it to be a surprise when it comes around, I mean what would BR be like if the students had been told about it beforehand! But still, can't we know a little about what to expect. No, I guess not officially, but what are our views on the matter. We the people, the proles who keep this forum running, what are our hopes and concerns for the future of SOTF? This topic seems to have run a little dry and I thought I would bump it up because personally, I can't wait for V2.
Megami - April 2, 2006 10:51 PM (GMT)
Personally, and this is a thought I've expressed a couple times, but I'm sort of hoping the v2 kids will be a bit older than the last group. I don't know about anyone else, but I had a bit of trouble trying to play a 15 year old kid. I suppose it's because, well, that was nearly 4 years ago for me. Haha. Another thing that somewhat bothered me about V1 wasn't exactly in the game, but more about the characters. Anyone else notice how, although a huge chunk of the kids came from Barry Coleson, they like... didn't know one another? That was just odd to me. Surely, if you've gone to high school with them, even if you weren't friends, you'd know at least a little about the other person, right? There were exceptions, of course, but an overwhelming majority of the kids seemed not to know one another, and I thought it was odd. But... I think that'll be cleared up in V2, seeing as there's now going to be a pre-game RP, so it'll give everyone time to establish relationships and such. With that, I shall conclude my rant. For now.
Serapindal - April 4, 2006 02:14 AM (GMT)
Hmm...can't wait for the Pregame RP!

I'll have to consider the age thing. It's been an issue for a lot of people; you're not the only one who wants it bumped up a little, Meg. I don't really like the idea of anyone really being aged 18 or more in the game, since their way of thinking would probably be more rational AKA a little more "grown up" than someone who is in 9th grade, but, meh, depends on the way you're going to play the character. Long paragraph short, I'm going to have to put it under consideration. ;)
Pregame will do everything you listed, yes. There will even be an OOC forum coupled with the Pregame for people to make relationships with other people with "Looking For A Friend/Enemy, etcetera" threads. Should be fun, I believe. ^_^
Minase - April 4, 2006 09:20 AM (GMT)
Good idea that pre-game thing. My opinion on the age thing would be sixth form students, or whatever the US equivelent of that is. 16-17 year olds. I only suggest this because I am one and I know first hand that whilst some kids my age can be really mature and grown-up, others are more childish than they were when they were 15. I really don't think i've changed that much, I'm just slightly mroe mature and slightly wiser. At the end of the day if you want the same BR feel but for a slighlty maturer audience, I'd go with 17 yr old students.
