SilverGryphons is a new roleplaying shell that starts meeting around 9-10 est. We are freeform, so while we are working on a role-play campaign, you can also just hop on as you like to roleplay your character as you wish to. Our homepage is still under construction, but check out http://silvergryphons.forumcircle.com/index.php for more info

Ahoy Nei :) Over the next few weeks I'll be seeing what my play schedule's like, and if it's possible I might bring in Elipsis. I'm not sure though, since things look to get hectic every bloody time I try.

Good luck with this!

I may take a look at this. I've been wanting to try a shell like this for sometime.

hey elipsis and weakened thanks. It's okay its going to be a bit more casual and welcoming people who just want to pop in and rp for a bit. We'll be updating the site soon, so feel free to think about making a profile or into for your character even if you wanna just try the shell once.

I'm definitely going to look over the site. I'm probably going to have to alter Eli's profile a skoshe from the last shell we were in, and see how things are going to be handled differently here.

Either way I've been wanting to get back into it, and just when I went to check I see this thread. I'll lurk there for a few days and then throw up the old altered profile for review.

Right now it's just me, Dark, Seph, and Tailzz who have pearls to the shell. But we're always looking for new members.

I just always enjoyed a small bit of RPing. Found it refreshing. Used to do it with an online WWE Federation that I had a lot of fun with until it just got boring to me and the guys I played with were total jerks.'

Maybe this will be better, since I already like Seph and Tailzz in SG it looks.

Our brand of RP tends to be pretty laid back. It'll just be a lot of free-form stuff -- you can RP how you want so long as you pay attention to the rules. There may or may not be a coherent plotline (I'm all about coherent plotlines, but they're kind of hard to do in a game like this). It's pretty much just a free for all as long as you don't godmode or make a Mary Sue or a character with Sephiroth wings and whatnot.

I like small plotlines myself, but if I can get some freeform RP to work, it's all good. I'm not really that good at leading my own mini sets unless I get the basics figured out first. I tend to feed off others more.

Anyway, since my old profile went missing, I redid one and posted. I'll track someone down this week sometime to bring Eli back in ^^

Seph's asking me to bring a lot of stuff from our other RP board over -- regarding a small plotline we have running right now. I'll do it this weekend when I have the time to cut and paste a bunch of stuff...

Yes, some of us split off from esper because of a few reasons, but it was a friendly split. If you would like more info on this, send me a message.

Nah, I was just curious. Back when I still played FFXI, I briefly joined EsperDreams, but I quit the game shortly thereafter.

Yes, Esper split up. We've been picking up where we left our characters off in Esper, though some former members of Esper who've since joined SilverGryphons have decided to start over with a blank slate.

We're still looking for new members if you want in on RP!

I am looking for a new linkshell and have been a great fan of role playing for over a decade. However it is very important to me to be a part of a community that does not allow swearing or conversing of vulgar topics in it's public communication. I tried to register for your forums to view the rules, but couldn't see the confirmation image in registration. Is it working for other people? Do you have gd2 image rendering enabled in your server's php configuration?

Thanks for your attention, and it's nice to see what seems to be a group of positive people taking part in role playing. Good luck.

i think its set to use two different styles of confirmation messages. If you want to message me with a time youd want to register, i could set it up for you to bypass it. Unfortunately i can only set one of the two styles or disable it completely, and i dont know which one you'd find more readable.

or, if you are on siren send Darknei, Sepharix, or Mozyr a tell.

As for content, well, i wont say that we dont, but all of us are pretty mature players aside from the general bouts of goofiness now and then. Youll have to check us out and see if we are to your comfort level.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

I believe I am going to keep looking, though I will look you guys up on the server and check you out, though if the swearing is any more than very sparse I probably won't stick around. It's not meant to be personal or condescending in any way. Rather it's a decision I have made for the benefit of my spiritual health.

Thanks for your reply and I hope to see you online!

Fully understandable :) I can see why you're being picky with your choice of homes in the game. While I hope you'll join us, I also hope that you'll find the shell you're looking for! I know there's one out there.

I agree with what Darknei said. We do curse (sometimes), but it's not overly-excessive or anything like that. Most of the time it's kept off the shell and in /tells if it's OOC chatter.

I hope you find the shell that you're looking for, but we'll still be around if you wish to join us. :)

Edit: What's your character's name so we know who to give a pearl to?

Hi Darknei. I basically have no experience to speak of with roleplaying shells but this sounds like fun. I'd like to check it out if you're still handing out pearls. I tried to check out more information on the shell at the forumcircle site but I couldn't see any posts. Not sure if there just aren't any yet or if it's not working for me. Anyway I'll try and look you up when I'm on the game to talk to you more in depth about the linkshell.

Thanks,
Drizz

P.S. goodluck with your linkshell

We're still looking for new blood if anyone's interested. If you have any questions about what roleplaying is, post them here or send Darknei, me, or Sepharix a /tell in game. If you already know what roleplaying is and want to actually start using it in the FFXI-verse (since it is an MMORPG, after all), let us know.

You don't have to post a character bio or anything like that -- we're not making it a requirement. If you want to write one, great, if not, that's also fine. Just ask one of us for a pearl and go join the forum that's linked to in my signature.

Sorry Moz. I tried the last one and it just didn't fit for me. I quickly realized I know little of the story/history of FFXI and that I don't care about it either. I'm only still playing FFXI because of some of the people in my LS.

Esper kind of fell apart -- but we don't really pay much attention to the history of Vana'diel. Most of the stuff that we do sort of revolves around our characters and how they fit into Vana'diel, but that's about it. Trust me -- none of us are scholars on the history of Vana'diel in the shell, and most of what we do come up with is completely not canon -- but it's still fun. :)

S/E hasn't really given us much of a history to deal with when it comes to Vana'diel, so it'll be interesting to see how that plays out when WotG comes out in two months. For the time being, however, we seem to be practicing revisionist history, as it were. XD

Goodness knows some interesting things happen during RP. Especially when Moz breaks it.

Needless to say, that doesn't happen OFTEN, but when it does, it's funny as hell.

YES, I POSTED IT.

Oh, shut up, Obi Eli. XD

After that post where I posted your name 1000 times I haven't made the mistake again, so HAH AHA HAHA.

I invited two more people to the shell last night -- they were camping Mee Deggi with me and seemed interested in RP. So the three of us were on there last night while waiting for him to pop.

Grr. Drop my damn kote already!

0/3, so far.

Decided not to camp him tonight. I think I'm giving up on that. Now my next task is to get Vyggio the Vahzl gate crystal.

Almost made it. >_< I knew I should have brought along a full stack of oils and powders. Oops. At least I know I can get through Ranguemont Pass, though.

I don't think this kind of thing interests me, bu I am interseted in what you mean by "role-playing ls."

I understand rp, as I played on a role-playing server occasionally in WoW, but
maybe you can explain some things:

1) What do you mean by plot lines? Is it like being the dungeon master or something?

2) Blank slate? Do you keep track of things? What things?

3) What do you meet for?

4) Do you use "the kings english"? You know.. "How doth yee find yee me lot?" and stuff.

1) Easier to illustrate. One of our storylines involved several disgruntled members of the hydra corp in dynamis coming out to try and seal it off from vana'diel because they were tired of player incursions into that realm. Thats the plot line, and characters in the linkshell reacted to it in many ways. (mostly fleeing at first XD)

2) oh, that means we can start afresh as characters. Our characters in Esper had a lot of history together and a lot of story built up, and when we started the Gryphons people could alter their characters and rebuild histories if they wanted to.

3) Mostly to get together and roleplay..act out our characters. Sometimes we do ingame events in character, sometimes its a chat session

4) no, mostly because most people in vanadiel don't talk like that. The way you show character when writing isn't often by dialect, but by how they choose words. Like in real life..some people talk a mile a minute, some don't say much at all. Some people use big words, some don't.

Eli makes sure Yor washes when she visits, so he's clean! Most of the time. Kinda. Damn, he should take a bath soon ...

ThePwnisher:

I was in the old RPLS with my main character, Elipsis, but had to quit for various real life reasons. When I came back it was 8 months later and a brand new shell. Because my character wasn't really deeply involved in anything the last time I played, I decided to make some alterations to her based on previous experiences and started brand new to make things a little bit easier for her to interact with the rest of them.

Also, I think I'm the only one who has her character speak with a noticeable accent ^^; But that's mostly because that's how I've normally typed in the game. I just emphasized it on Elipsis and had a bit of fun with it. Sometimes too much fun and it gets really thick -_-; Ugh.

Yes, Eli's the only one with a noticeable accent on the shell, I think. We don't speak in old English or whatever. Come to think of it, I don't think we've ever done that in any of the RPGs I've ever been in, including D&D and Earthdawn.

I need to go write the next chapter of Silver Gryphons: The High School Years when I get home and finish watching my No Country For Old Men CD. Man, it's really nice to have friends in the Screen Actor's Guild who get these things early and give them to me.
