Congratz! I wish you successfully tone it down to a grey dystopia, painful bureaucracy, and mind-blowing moralistic public announcements.
Pssshhhtttt. You guys thought I’d leave for good? Ha! Suckaaaaas!
TNP RP is hella fun, and to be perfectly honest? It's good that after fourteen years of playing I finally went for a Delegacy.
I thought you had delegacy in taijitu a while back, or was it your buddy and you were some high ranking official? Cant remember.
quite like The Village ... sure, you MIGHT escape, but we'll be seeing you soon enough ;)
Dixie was Delegate. I served as his Vice Delegate. And you all called him a literal Nazi despite his best friend and Vice Delegate being a Jewish person ;)
Hahaha comparing Jews to Nazis. Never gets old. Stay classy Delfos. May you and Jeremy Corbyn have a lovely picnic together.
Not gonna happen. Taijitu RP is too insular and every attempt to reboot it sees it die because no one is interested in actually RPing. Used to think I was the problem, because I would go "do I get bored too easily?"
Turns out no. RP is hella fun when you have people who actually respond consistently.
Gonna be honest with you....
1- Building off the above? You gotta be active. Lack of activity kills Taijitu RP EVERY TIME it's restarted. Yadda yadda life yadda yadda. I'm a teacher. I can manage a few posts a week. I'm sure you could manage one post a month (the minimum activity requirements).
2- You came in with Myro and Funk and Gulliver. Gulliver has a good rep in TNP, but he's even less active then you can be. And Myro and Funk? They stir the pot just because. Funk was always a miserable little person, but Myro used to be pleasant. No idea what happened to him. "Oz by himself" is a better deal than "Oz with Myro and Funk."
Regardless they had as much of a bad rep as you did when you four came in.
3- You gotta get over the idea that you're that much better than everyone. I have no idea what TNP RP was like when you first tried it. Maybe it was trash? I donno. It wasn't what I would call Taijitu levels when I joined in 2017, but it's improved GREATLY since I got there. I've seen individual RPers improve before my eyes. There's stuff there that I would put up against you, Dixie, and Myro's best work when you're both motivated, and you three are some of the best RPers I've seen in NS (when you're motivated).
Anyway I'm lead RP mod over there these days. I like you Ozy, so if you wanna come over and not cause problems? I'll make it work. That's what the deal is.
And hey if you wanna just laugh at me for this and call me fat? Well that's fair too :P
Eh, no thanks, before I stopped activity we were all pretty discouraged due to player/mod response and the cartographer ignoring us. Can't speak exactly for others, but for the most part we just wanted to do dumb RP with mcm to counterbalance bad rp responses he was getting. While fun to plan out at first, think we all lost interest because we were more interested in story-driven worldbuilding, like writing a collective book.
As for Funk/Myro, who cares what TNP thinks now? they're cool dudes.
I wouldn't say Taijitu RP/Worlduilding is better, just different. Other NS-RP communities like TNPRP treat it more like a spreadsheet simulator of risk and arbitrary numbers, and many people there also treated worldbuilding as a way to express their personal beliefs like they were creating their own version of Moore's Utopia. Meanwhile, our worldbuilding was usually about having a setting surrounded by dumb hijinks and more character driven stuff. Myroria likes to make morrowind with a royal crisis, I liked to write the antagonist, usually with communism, Putin-esque schemes, and crime, Khem's worldbuilding was like taking a trip, etc.
It's like the Plinkett review, where he asks his friends to describe the protagonists. If people asked me to describe nations in Taijitu-RP similarly, I think I could come up with some good answers. In TNP-RP, no idea, I could only really describe their system of government or how many times they sent millions of peacekeepers for any problem.
TL:DR - TNPRP, you do you, TaijituRP, you do you or not, we haven't done anything in awhile.
New Delfos - always willing to try again if the forum is ever back up
I meant trolling TNP RP. We had a good thing going before, even the other day I was looking at the Aurofighter we did in the Aurorean Coalition back in the day. I wouldn't mind more of a sitcom RP something more relaxed and fun I can engage while horribly commuting home. Enough with this pseudo lawyer, model UN type of crap, we're all too arrogant to just respect each other. Might as well play Cards against Humanity, maybe we can come up with a Taijitu version.
Although this was fun too:
I will, thanks.
lol, yeah hard pass on the TNP RP and model un sh!t. I'm okay to have a politics, just that it's happening in the background as a setting for characters to interact in.
So... Is our forum permanently shut down?
Everyone please list reasons why you love taijitu below.
I will allow 100% free speech
