Hmm, what to say, what to say. I have always enjoyed writing and have a flare for descriptive essays and stories but have recently wanted to get in to other forms of writing. When I saw that this site offered help with both novices and experienced writers I just had to give it a shot. This may earn me a lot of critics, but I am a big fan of rap and feel that it is among the most creative and expressive art forms in society today and I even enjoy Def poetry. These are the sort of skills I am hoping to pick up but there are not exactly classes that focus on such forms of writing and so the World Wide Web is my next, best learning source.

A quick FYI, although I enjoy rap I am actually a rock n' roll and heavy metal fan at heart. Most of my family listens to country and so I did as well growing up but that eventually lead to rock n' roll (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Pink Floyd, etc) and then a brief stint in the drug life lead me to heavy metal (so I guess something good did come from the bad in my life xD). Not to mention, I do not like a lot of mainstream rap (not simply because it is mainstream but because they usually rap about mainstream content like what brand of watch they own and all that nonsense). OVerall, though, I am appreciative of all forms of art, music and otherwise. Sure I like some more than others and, like most people, I have my preferences but I enjoy everything from Les Miserables to Ozzy Osbourne. I especially love symphonic metal (I don't really care much for genre titles and give them little to no notice beyond the actual content of what I'm listening to) so if you think you might know of a band I have not heard then I implore you to let me know.

I also enjoy roleplaying (usually in a Fantasy setting though I will give most anything a try) but only tend to participate if it is something that really catches my interest and I think I can remain devoted to. On those occasions that I do roleplay I am not someone who simply likes to participate and go with the flow. I like to throw in ideas (some are really good in my opinion while others may be a little off the wall) and I absolutely HATE being ignored. I don't mind if none of my ideas are taken so long as I feel that they were at least looked at, if not considered. However, I am not much for running a roleplay myself (I don't like playing the part of GM) and would rather act as a sort of idea box or maybe even a co-GM type of position.



So, uhm... was that long enough for ya'? xD I figured if I'm not going to be given a word limit then I might as well make this introduction worth it. So, kudos to you who read the whole thing and I hope to see you out there!

Peace & Love

Good day, Penumbra and welcome to the Forum. My name is Un Poco De or if prefer you may call me a Little as that is my English title.

I am a Role Play of seven years experience in total and I was something akin to what you are now when I started, I was much more a advicor than that of a leader although I have become far more aggressive in my style as time went on, most likely due to being far more confident now. I am not entirely sure but I would like to see what you can do, I'll be wacthing you as I get the impression you have potential but am not entirely sure...yet. I am a drawer and if you would like to see my DA page feel free to press the WWW button at my bottom post. I would invitey ou to Role Play with me but I am currently very tied up in a series of events although if you can be extremely paitent for my post we can give pairing up a try if you like.

I feel you will like it here, although if you will grow beyond us or find that this scenery is far too comfy to give up only time will decide.

I am English, I am a pretty simple person. I only ask for some respect and I'll give back I get in kind although I can get a little blunt sometimes when on a roll.

Hey, howdy, hey!

I'm Tyro and I'll be the Path's equivalent of a pet dog. I'm happy to lend some help towards refining your style. My...what? Five years experience is a little less than Un Poco's up there but still handy.

I'm also the critic around here so I'll look at whatever you post on the site and pass judgement on that or pass judgement on what ever I happen to be playing or looking at or whatever. One draw back: I'm usually very lazy about it.....

Now's the bit where I plug my RP's. Look down there in my sig and you should see two links there for my two RP's to get you started right away. We have gotten into the meat of the plot in 'Three Fabulous Toys' but you are still welcome. You might have to catch up though....

As for the Villain Tournament, just read through the general idea then Private Message me with the characters you would like to put forwards and I'll start a tournament for you.

So far, I've still got four characters left, Thepsy! You-gonna-diiiiiiie!

Right, my usual introductory stint is over. Hope everyone else turns up too.

*coughs*

Hi, welcome to The Path.

I'm Blackbird, and hum... I don't know... I guess I can say that I'm a random person who logs in eventually to ramble around the site. lol

About rap... I think that it is a great form of expression and although I lack the ability to tolerate most rap songs ever made, I've always held respect for the artists. Also, there are exceptions which I thoroughly enjoy.
As for Rock: There's absolutely nothing better. Enough said. I'm currently listening to a little bit of Scorpions, so yeah... *mind wanders off*

*drifts back to planet Earth*

Hello Penumbra I am God, The Creater, The owner of the site.

As you might of guessed most people call me Thepsy.

Unlike most members on this site I would be one of the most inexperienced, I have only been roleplaying for a little over two years.

I started out close to illiterate but with many ideas. Slowly I used those who I roleplayed with to learn, I copied their spelling and slowly brought myself up through the ranks of the roleplaying community where I started. Eventually I was roleplaying with the big boys and refining my style to a t.

When I came to this site I somehow was instantly brought into the community which at that time had been a more based around people the Founder knew. Since then I had always offered him any help I could give and eventually I'm here as the owner of the site.

Anyway pleased to meet you.

Chances are we won't roleplay unless you join Tyro's roleplay as I've been very busy lately.

But anyway I hope you become a valuable member of this community.
So remember to read the rules and I hope to see you around for a long time.

@ Tyro: Haha, well you would have to kill me as Alan and Bella aren't even close to going down yet. But hey, I'm nice, some free advice. Try to get Bella down first.
Oh and I will try and reply to TFT today.

(P.S. Alan and Bella are my overpowered fun characters. It is not often I actually use them to fight... For reasons that Tyro is finding out. I consider them Guardian characters, meaning they are their to even the odds for weaker 'quest characters'.)

Anyway I have to go so *Send!*

Krii: Have you made any head way in coming up with applicants for the tournament.

Thepsy: You have got to be kidding me? Their deliberately overpowered? That'll explain a few things...

xD Awesome, glad to see there really is a mix-up of types and styles here. Any who, I've been role playing for a good 12 years now so it is a rare hobby for me to indulge in as I often grow bored with role plays though I may be full throttle in to it in the beginning. I have an Earthy spirit but a very flighty nature. xD But you can all look forward to (or possibly dread) any future postings of mine as I'll be tossing out some short stories, character ideas (even some role play ideas in case anyone is interested in borrowing from my Imagination Stash), as well as poems, rants, and a few new things (currently under construction) of which I will be hoping to get some critiquing on. Also, hopefully, all of this stuff will find its way to its proper category.

Thank you all for the welcome! I appreciates it. Sorry I could not respond to you each individually as I would have liked to but I am still getting use to the site format a little bit. Also, there may not be very much activity coming from me over the next, I'll say, two weeks as it is Finals months for me. Yay! ....Okay, I'm not really that excited. It sucks. -_-

Again, thank you all and I look forward to, well, to it all! xD

Well of course they are on purpose. I wouldn't just leave it like that if it wasn't on purpose! I'm just waiting for you to bring up a sword fighter, as in a main character who is a sword fighter. Some vampire was a bit of fun but someone with a power closer to Alan's own would let me show you the reason for the apparent power gap between Alan and Bella.

Meh, as I said I don't normally use them because I know it would be totally unfair and ruin many a roleplay. But on the other hand as a protecter they work well. Especially since they have no real reason to help, no ties to nearly any story line. So it is like "Okay well that guy won't be bothering you for a while, so I think you should do some training so you are able to take down dragons like that. So have fun with that, as for me I'm going to Italy for a holiday. Cya!"

Well any questions you have feel free to ask someone else.

No I'm joking, I'm happy to help you out if you are having troubles. In fact I particularly like to try and guide new members around and make them comfortable. I find it helps people not get sick of the site so easy.

Anyway I hope you stay.... Now.... Of to write a post.

Hello, and welcome to the path. I am sorry for not getting here earlier. ^-^ I been rping about five years now, and this site help me to grow as a writer. I rp here with my first male character and it still fun. -hand out lots of cookies-

I am not picky on music, if it sounds good I will love it. Even then there is only a rare few rap songs that I like. I mostly listen to rock, contrny, soundtracks, and some pop that is moving. I think that most artist that are younger then 19 are auto tuned too much.

I love anime and manga. The few of my favoites are Hellsing, Ghost in the Shell and Kuroshitsuji (Black Bulter). The anime I listed are not for kids at all, I hope you will check them out.

Team Alucard forever, and the sparkly ones must die.

Nooooooooo! Don't kill the sparkly ones! The sparkly ones must liiiiiiiiiive! Why? Because I'm a Twilight fan? HELL NO! Because...... -big smile- I need werewolf bait.

Aaanyways! I have seen a few episodes of Ghost in the Shell and it seemed very, er... unique? I must say that there were a few detective-type episodes that I really enjoyed. I also like Case Closer (or Detective Conan if you like to call it that) but have not seen it in a loooong time. I think I just love it for it's zaney, childish humor and 'cause I'm a sucker for Holmes (I adore Doyle for writing most of the Holmes books from Watson's perspective rather than playing the typical omniscient narrator). Then, and yes I am slightly ashamed to admit it but still do not hide it, I am a fan of the mainstream DBZ and Yu Yu Hakusho.

Still, I have never been a big fan of anime and can not bring myself to read a Manga. I think it is the black and white pictures. I was spoiled on Marvel comic books as a kid with their pretty shapes and bright colors. xD I have not heard of the other two but will try to keep them in mind. I am sure there is one or two more anime shows I enjoyed but for the life of me cannot recall them right now.

Thanks for welcoming me! See ya' out there.
