    Looking thru all of those RPG's I noticed one thing- Lack of Imagination and creativity!
    All of the set-ups are standard and cliché.
    So, since I have no better thing to do, I came up with the idea to create an RP where everything is obscure.

    It means that when creating a char you have nearly absolute freedom of creation, as long as u don't try to use standard dominant races, skills and somesuch. So, if u ever desired to play with 800 pound gorilla that has horns and can recite Shakespeare, or walking skeleton counterpart of Elvis that compels enemies with singing, and such, this would be the perfect RP for u.

    If I get support, I’ll go forth with planning, but for now, this is enough.

    I take offense: I wrote one of those up! :D

    Sounds like a good idea, but I'm mostly too damn busy these days to join another RPG.

    I'd have to agree with Nienor's sentiment.

    Awwwwwwwwwww you people wound my heart! :sob:
    Honestly people, don't take it too seriously. I didn't mean to make it ofensive to u, I simply stated that there is indeed a lack of truly wacky ideas in rp section. If u people like it plain and simple, ok for u. I just want to see some real deal originality.
