Heyo! Always a pleasure to welcome another forum RP veteran to our humble corner of the net! I'm Riven -- part-time grumpy ol' bastard, part time Action Banner (http://rwby-rpg.rwbyfanon.com/index.php/topic,1089.0.html) designer, full-time weaponized muffin magnate! As you can see in my sig I have a decently full roster of characters both good, wicked, and "it's complicated", so if you see anyone in the lineup that you'd like to have a thread with just lemme know! BTW, nice job on your first character profile; you are seriously off to a running start here. Good stuff!

Now then, onto serious business... how do you feel about nicknames? 'Oner'? 'Builder'? Maybe just 'On'? Lemme know what you're cool with.  8)

And now, as is my tradition, I'd like to offer you a freshly-baked welcome muffin as your unofficial initiation to the forum. Just need you to hold this GPS transmitter... good, now stand right about there... aaaaaaand MUFFIN INBOUND!

Dammit Riven, always stealing everyone's thunder. It's gonna be raining muffins soon if you keep this up.

But on a more serious note, allow me to echo Riven's welcome! It's good to know you've got experience with this kinda forum, but I know one thing Riven forgot to mention--our Discord (https://discordapp.com/channels/285331103303335956/287120324867260416) server!

Any more words would just be more of the same, so I'll leave you to it. Have fun here!

...Is that an SCP reference?

Well, it's always nice to have such a warm welcome! (And warm muffins, getting through the atmosphere like that has gotta mean they practically melt in your mouth)

In regards to nicknames, I don't really mind. So long as it's somewhat recognizable to my name, I'll respond to it! I appreciate you asking about it  ;D

Thank you for your compliments about my character! Like I said, it's been a little while, so I wasn't sure how he'd be received, but I'm glad to hear your opinion  :D

I'm signed up for the discord server now, waiting on a response on the "request chat access" chat, and I'm really looking forward to getting into all of this again!

I'm familiar with SCP (some absolutely fantastic articles), but what exactly are you referring to?

The Oneroi part, really.

Oh, well, it's not a reference to SCP. It's actually a reference to Greek mythology (The Oneroi were the three gods of dreams: Morpheus, Phantasos, and Phobetor). I've always been a huge fan, and the name essentially means "Dream Builder", which is pretty cool in my opinion.
Which SCP has Oneroi in it?

Just out of curiosity, you mentioned having prior experience with RP forums. One veteran RPer to another, care to share a bit of your history? Any forums of particular interest in your past? We might have crossed paths under different names at some point (I've gone by 'Nascent' and 'Specter' previously, btw).

Well, I started out on a Camp Half-Blood forum for Percy Jackson. I think it's still the first result if you look up Percy Jackson roleplay forums. On that site I went by the name Labyrinthdesigner, as well as on the sister site that was set up for Camp Jupiter. Additionally, I spent a very short amount of time on a One Piece forum, but that's about it. I spent a few years off and on with the Percy Jackson forums, but unfortunately those have been inactive for years at this point. I'm glad to have found an active and welcoming community though!

My bad; they're called Oneiroi. Have at it. (http://www.scp-wiki.net/oneiroi)

Actually, Oneiroi what my name is supposed to be! I misspelled it in the first account I made using the name, and the misspelling usually means no one has taken the name, so it kinda stuck. Iím sure the SCP thing is in reference to the Greek Gods the same way mine is. Still super cool though!

Ah, neat! Not really familiar with the Percy Jackson series myself (I'm vaguely aware that it's 'Greek mythology meets the modern world' but not really in the loop beyond that), but I can certainly appreciate a fandom with a taste for legends and lore of yore. That being the case, this is probably our first encounter. BTW, should you ever be in the mood to hear an old man rant and rave about how forum RP has changed over the last 20 years, lemme know!

... Ye gawds, I'm such a relic that Ozpin oughts put me in a vault. ~_~;;

Yeah, that's pretty much the gist of it. It was very much my childhood series, and my favorite book of all time is still the House of Hades (though, it certainly requires reading the other books first to fully enjoy it).
So yes, this is probably the first time we've met, but I'm glad to make your acquaintance! Where did you start out with RP forums? And how long have you been around on them?
Title: Re: Hello!
Post by: Riven on June 19, 2018, 06:05:38 PM
Oh boy... that is a long tale to tell. ^_^;;

Short version is this: roughly 20 years, on and off. Got my start as a dumb kid writing terrible fanfiction who wandered into a competitive combat RP forum, got my butt kicked, and somehow managed to convince some fairly badass writers to teach me their word-ninja ways. It was a pretty aggressive forum where quality, writing style, and tactics were constantly getting compared and evaluated -- keep in mind, this was the heyday of DBZ and such, so things were a lot more "power level" driven and a lot less adventure/story focused. It was also the 90s and most of us were, predictably, young and confused back then... I doubt anybody back then really knew any better, honestly.

Since that point I've kinda been all over the place for various stints of time. AnimeLeague, back when they still did miscellaneous multiverse RPs, was one of the big ones. I've been on Kingdom Hearts and Soul Eater forums, original medieval fantasy, scifi, and superhero RPs, a pretty broad spectrum. You learn a lot from meandering across the "RPverse", not least about yourself. One thing I've discovered is that the more you know, the better you get as a writer, the more you realize that even the best of us have only just scratched the surface.

So... I guess that's your 'motivational thought' for the day. That, and "always have a landing strategy", but that goes without saying.  :P
