(Another Casual RP Request) Relaxation on Oceanus

Tiger Carson

Recommended Posts

RP Name/Title- Relaxation on Oceanus

Style- Forum

Theme- Casual RP

Setting- Oceanus, my own created world that is mostly ocean like Aquas and Zoness, but with much more variety as you’ll see in the description, which is written for the most part like a commercial.


Oceanus, a world of endless beautiful seas, and tropical islands, and all the adventure you could ever crave along with fun and relaxation in the sun.  *Camera pans in on a beautiful blonde haired female fishing cat in a leotard style bathing suit with a long surong* I, Casher Fishing-Cat, your lovely hostess, welcome you to this beautiful gem of the Lylat System.

Oh, what’s that you say?  What does Oceanus have that Zoness and Aquas don’t?  Plenty!  We have islands that are so heavily clustered together they form pseudo continents, *Picture of the planet showing this appears, looks like Corneria, but with all the continents clearly broken up into islands that indeed clustered tightly to form pseudo continents, then returns to Casher* and with them climates you won’t find on those other water worlds.  Yes, we all have polar ice caps, that’s to be expected.

*Cuts to picture of an active volcano* But do you know of any place on Zoness or Aquas with active volcanos like our biggest, Mt. Kajula?  *Cuts to a scene of a jungle with all kinds of strange animals to be decided on by the reader's imagination what they are* Deep jungles with exotic wild life like the jungle of Mato-Jin?  *Cuts to a picture of a snow capped mountain* Mountains of such height that there’s snow all year around, like Mt. Cerness our tallest mountain?  *Cuts to a picture of a desert with oasis dotting the landscape, each a mile apart from the other in all directions* Lovely deserts with oasis every mile in any direction, like the Mozasis Desert?  *Cuts to a picture of a pine forest* What about forests of pine trees, like Emerald Stone Park on the island of Siju?  Yes, we also have palm tree forests on many of our islands, along with ruins of ancient civilizations.  *Cuts to a picture of each environment as mentioned before cutting to a picture of a city at night with all the neon around* We also have busy cities with vibrant night life for you party animals who enjoy the late night partying.  *Shows a video of people at a night club dancing to music by a DJ before cutting back to Casher* We do appreciate that you’ve chosen us so wisely though for your vacation destination, and I do hope to see you soon.  Everything you could imagine is here, and I do mean EVERYTHING!  I hope you do enjoy your stay.

– Disclaimer:  *Speed talker* Some activities may not be suitable for children, families with children are cautioned.  Oceanus is not responsible for loss of property, money, or harm to persons taking part in risky activities.  All other Lylat Laws apply.

*Casher Again, this time in a bikini with a short surong, reclining on a beach chair at one of the beaches* Oceanus, it’s the paradise world you’ll love so much you’ll want to visit again and again!

Further Details: The commercial gives an idea of what’s there on the world, but as it’s a casual RP, it’ll depend on those who join it to give the place some further development, along with what I myself do.  The main island chain, Proximus, is where the visitors arrive, itself having a small sampling of what there is to find on the world of Oceanus.  Now this will allow for violence to certain degrees, no more than what the board rules allow though.  Same for certain *ahem* content *Cough cough* that is not allowed by forum rules.  Keep it clean people, no more intimate stuff than what has been allowed in other rps so far, I don’t want this getting shut down because things got out of hand.

Also, let’s keep continuity loose on this one, no ties to La Catalina or other rps unless absolutely necessary.  Familiarity on the level of normal friendship is fine, much more than that can be allowed if properly explained and both of you are not planning to go inactive any time soon.  Otherwise, have encounters feel like a sense of déjà-vu or something like that the first time they meet and they were more than friends in another rp.  Sorry, but I feel it best not to bring any "baggage" from other rps into this attempt at a vacation rp.  Light friendships from other rps as said are okay, or if characters are heavily tied into each others backgrounds as some people tend to do are also okay.  But it must be no more than that.  Unless you both have agreed that your characters are to be involved with each other in any rp you are in, even if the other isn’t in the rp.  Just, make sure you won’t be bogged down.  Nothing ruins an rp worse than being tangled up with someone else’s characters who isn’t active anymore for some reason. (Except god modding and auto hitting/power playing, but we all know that, don't we?)

Now for some fun stuff.  The cities have everything you could imagine or want, from gambling, to restaurants, to vibrant night clubs and bars, movie theaters, hotels.  Everything associated with cities.  The mountains provide for multiple sports like mountain and rock climbing to hiking and even spelunking.  The forests are good for hiking and camping for the more ruggedly inclined.  The deserts are great for dune buggy riding and racing, while the snowy areas are great for hockey, skiing, and other snow related sports.  Jungles are good for safaris, the more thrill seeking individuals will want to take advantage of the walking safaris, though vehicular safaris are available for those faint of heart.  Obviously, the beaches are great for those who want to sun bathe and participate in aquatic sports like swimming.  There's also joining archaeological digs and digging for treasure in the ruins.  There are hotels in the cities, as well as cabins in the forests as well as other specially themed accommodations all throughout the world.  Just stay away from military zones and other restricted areas unless you actually want to get in trouble with the authorities.  But why do that?  They’re not messing with you it would seem…

There’s also the question of why your character(s) would be there, or rather, how they can get there.  Simply put, if they have a ship or access to one, they can get there fine.  Just that your accommodations may not be that ritzy if you’re not that flush in cash. (In other words, you’ll be staying in a self made or purchased tent for your vacation, or your ship if it can allow for living in it.)

Also, don’t be afraid to interact with other people’s characters.  Let’s see how things work in a sort of intimate setting as vacations can often provide.  Make this like the vacation of your dreams if you wish.  Just keep the rules in mind, and we’ll be golden.

Goal- Find adventure on Oceanus, relax, have fun, enjoy your vacation.  Just don’t ruin it by POing the authorities or the wrong people.

Player count- Minimum of four players including myself, no limit on max size.

Now let’s see how fast this crashes and burns in the request forum assuming the boards aren't quiet enough to allow for a fourth casual rp. XD;;  Also, wanted to wait before trying to run an rp here, but I'm so itching for rping that I need an outlet for it.  Something casual and semi-simple seems good for a first time trying to run a forum RP in over ten years.  That is, if it's not a total mess of a request, and actually gets approved and enough people get interested enough to get it going.

Well, now that I have a couple of non-militant characters in my lineup, I think I''ll give this a try.
