Just a quick point- I'm sure you've noticed by now that ideas are first touted in the idea section to see how much interest they generate before starting a thread here.
Keeps it nice and tidy, and obvious which threads are active running RPs.

[Edit: oh, and I forgot to say that although I love Rurouni Kenshin it's not something I'd fancy RPing, unfortunately. But I know there are other big fans so some of them will probably take you up.]

I've got a quick question - I'm far more familiar with the RK world than the Samurai X one, but when Kenshin became the Ororororo Kenshin we all know and love, didn't he stop killing people? So at what point in his timeline are we at? Before or after Tomoe died?

05/07/2007 7:35 PM

before...well its after she dies but before he stops killing people

Mmmm so still the mad killing machine. Well, I'm gonna try to come up with a character, and see if it works out for me. TTFN

Ummm yeah I am a huge Rurouni Kenshin fan and I will telll you right now. Kenshin is not a bloodthirsty monster. He never was. When he did kill, it was for an ideal, not bloodlust. Kenshin never went around looking for opponents or thinking himself better than others. He has been from the begining, (even in the OVA) a very unconfident and very good natured person, despite his methods. Don't disgrace the Rurouni Kenshin name with these false ideas. And Kenshin stopped killing people after Tomoe died. So your entire story has been shattered. The shinsengumi also was not still wandering around after the revolution. And another thing, if you do change this story to fit this perversion of what Rurouni Kenshin is then it won't really be a Kenshin RP, it will be a Kenshin poser RP. If you wanted to make an RP about samurai that much, then why didn't you make a historical one based on the actual Meiji Revolution, it wouldn't be any different and it would be a whole lot more original. Also this "idea" should have been posted in the interest section. NOT HERE! Good luck in the future with your RPing and hopefully you'll listen to others and improve.

First off...yes the revolution was still going on after tomoe died...second...i never said he was a killing monster...that was jay...thirdly he did still kill people after she died...watch the OVA's again...he clearly states and i quote "Katsura, i will still lend you my skills for the time until this peacefull world is established, only then will i withdraw my sword" i never said this story took place after the revolution, that was a typo i meant that it was after tomoe dies but it is still during the revolution...which continued for a good two years after she died so dont come into anymore of my RP's if all you are going to do is flame and criticise me, and oh yeah, i beleive i did post and idea forum. If you still dont believe that he kills people after she dies then i would suggest watching the OVA and then the movie...he gets the cross shaped scar when she dies, in the movie you see him with the cross shaped scar killing people as the battousai.

You aren't supposed to just post it in both places. Put it only in the interest Forum until it gains real interest and players. Don't waste space. You also should watch the OVAs again. You will see many mistakes in your little retort.

that was a typo

Thats a pretty big typo.

"Katsura, i will still lend you my skills for the time until this peacefull world is established, only then will i withdraw my sword"

and after he said that he still never killed anyone. WATCH THOSE OVAs!! And also remember that there are quite a few mistakes in the actual OVA and that only Rurouni Kenshin and the Manga of the same name actually follow the story accurately. Considering that the OVAs weren't made by the same people that wrote the original Manga in the first place.

my deepest apologies that I've only seen rurouni kenshin and not samuari x, and I once again apologize that I'm not a die hard fan. As far as RK the series goes, all I saw the battousai shown as WAS a crazy-ass killing machine. At least that I remember. So if this is a die hard rp, count me out. I just like the RK world, and "ORORORORORORORO!"
