I'm new here

Post by SparkleSwirl on Sun Jan 31, 2016 5:44 am

Rules say introduce yourself so I'm here!~ 

I'm K. and prefer 1x1 or small group rps!
It got a bit frustrating in my Gaia days when one character would get stuck in time because another participant who was interacting with them dropped off the face of the site or rp  OTL
SO I'd like to avoid that by using smaller groups!

I'm probably definitely not the best at keeping up with canon information! But Most of my knowledge is based on Sonic Boom (show), Sonic X, Sonic Adventure Battle 2, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, and a little bit of Sonic Heroes!
And even with those I'm no expert!

I prefer RPs with Canon characters only, and will probably stick in the Non-canon RP section, since it seems a little more loose and lenient on knowledge, after reading the rules at least

Well, welcome to the forum! I'm Spekkal, one of the admins here, along with Uncanny-Illustrator and Electrisa. While we do prefer to focus on fan OCs, we still allow people to sign up an RP as their favourite Sonic character, found here; http://sonicrpnation.forumotion.com/t3499-official-character-applications
But if you want to use any character, then you're correct! The non-canon area is the place to be! Hope you have a blast!

If you have any questions, feel free to poke me or the other admins, and we'll be happy to help!
See you around~

I do tend to have a focus on fan-ocs in rps!~
I'll probably eventually migrate more towards the canon-roleplay sections, but for now the non-canon seems like a pretty fun place to be! Haha~

Thank you for the welcome!~

Hey there, and welcome to the forum! Hope you enjoy your time here!
I'd say whichever section you RP in will probably tend less on your knowledge of series and more on your preference towards RPing.
Non-Canon tends to mostly be one-offs and more RPs based on themed ideas like 'zombie invasion', or run small plots that would hugely impact things too much if jammed into the forum canon. It's also a good space for people to get to mess around with canonical Sonic characters who've already been claimed by people RPing in the more canon areas. As you say, it's more fast-and-loose, but primarily because the RPs there don't have much impact outside of themselves.
If you prefer more consistency with your characters and actual development and such, that's what the Canon section is for. So whenever characters go on adventures, they can move onto another RP and go 'I remember that adventure I had in the past' or whatever, and so characters who interact can maintain knowledge of each other for when they interact again in the future. It iiis more limited on who can use canon characters, but that's so we don't get weird contradictions, where like, 20 people would be RPing their character dating Tails because everyone could freely use Tails or whatever. So yeah, whilst Canon section is perhaps more... limited, I'd say it's more accessible in terms of long-term RPing.
So yeah, as I say, depends where your preferences lie!

Ah yeah, I'm much more into one offs in terms of RPing. They're definitely what I'm used to doing and trying to get in on more ongoing things sounds a bit overwhelming for me~


I don't really mind the limitations on canon character usage, as I more than likely wouldn't want to use one anyway. I'm not actively keeping up with enough to do any of them justice haha~

And thank you! omg~

I'm having fun so far, even if it's a little odd to get used to a forum style website again
(My last one was Gaia and that was/// God, like 4-5 years ago for being legitimately active?)
