You should really post these things in the inquery forun before throwing it in this section. It has to generate interest there before anyone will consider playing. Also consider that you can't really expect anyone to want to participate in this RP, when you have nothing but a brief detailless post and no storyline. How do you expect anyone to want to join an RP about nothing? No one will want to participate in an RP with so little originality or story.

Did anyone want to join? If no one did then don't post here. I'm just saying you might want to generate more interest with some sort of story to follow.

Critch is right man. Don't post your thread without some background story and details about whats allowed, what isn't, special abilities, weapons, possible monsters, and an overall game setting. Don't get mad at Critch because he was the only one to point out your flaw and you just happened to have a brawl with him in the past. In my own personal opinion I do believe that Critch is a better roleplayer than you. But all I've seen from you to back you up are a few short one line posts with hardly any effort or skill put into them. Writing is an art, it needs effort to make it into something good.

Holy fucknuts! Shigetomo stole the name of my character from the Tarris Hold thread! Even though he spelled it wrong. It's spelled Allucard not Alucard. If you're going to steal people's ideas you should at least get them right. Bad luck for you that I have all my character sheets copyrighted including the names!!! BWAHAHAHAHA! I could totally sue your ass....I think... Even though I don't have a real lawyer. He's more of....a cardboard box with a wig strapped to him.

You're not building a very fine rep for yourself Shigetomo. You don't follow the rules of roleplaying (generally), you have a horrible usage of grammar (I'm a grammar nazi. Nobody really cares all that much about spelling you just have to get the grammar in there), and you steal people's COPYRIGHTED (©) material. Naughty naughty.

Actually, by that logic, you stole the name from the anime Hellsing. The main character's name is Alucard (spell it backwards to get it). And, since it's been around for several years, I'd say that Kouta Hirano gets first dibs.
Chill the fuck out.

Critch: Leave it alone. If you have nothing constructive to contribute, there's no need to contribute anything.

Shigetomo: Posting RP threads if you haven't gotten sufficient responses to the interest query is a waste of time and space. Wait until you have an idea with several people interested.

Wha...I'm not much of an anime head. So I didn't generally know that. Anyways, thanks for clearing that up.

the name "Alucard" has been used in at least two vampire based storylines that I know of, And mostly for the Spelling it backwards deal "Dracula -Alucard " ;)

Yeah no offense Rath but that is like saying you copyrighted the name. "Goku"

I really dont see the point of making a character for this thread ff some kind of storyline or direction is not given. Shigetomo you should probably edit your post and put some kind of detail into it so i can have an idea of where the roleplay is going.

Well not technically. Like I said I'm not a big anime fan. I only watch like... Naruto and Bleach. Plus there is the distinct difference. And by distinct difference I mean that I spell it with two L's. There are probably some differences in the pronounciation also.

Well Even so its still not far from the original. Allucard spelled with one extra L is still Alucard. Thats kind of like saying Drizzzt isnt Drizzt, but thats kinda beside the point. I just didnt really think you had a valid point when you said you copyrighted all of your characters. In my opinion that would be hard to do if the character resembled the vampire from those anime's in anyway.

We live in a world where it is hard to be original. Something is almost always reminisent of something else. That is what makes creativity precious. Shigetomo i would love to join your roleplay if you thought of some kind of storyline for us to follow.

How is that invalid? I make my characters up on the spot without copying anything from anywhere. I copyright all the characters to make sure that they stay original and that there aren't a bunch of copies out there. I've been doing it since I started roleplaying about 3 or 4 years ago. My friend suggested it, she copyrights all her things mainly out of paranoia because some dipshit eight year old copied her character and passed it off as his own on another roleplaying site. Ideas are the most commonly stolen items, especially on the internet.

I'm not sure you have a really valid point when all of this is just a big misunderstanding mainly because I had no knowledge of Helsing, I didn't even know it was an anime let alone did I know the names of the characters.

im taking ideas...what kind of storyline would you suggest?

I wouldn't. A Hellsing RP would need a goodly amount of people very familiar with the show or manga, and there's not many around, as the response has shown. You'd probably be better off trying this on a site with more resident anime fans.

Yeah... I agree... You won't find many Helsing fans here...It's a good anime and all but, there isn't enough of a fanbase here.

It's not so much that there's no fanbase- quite a few people like it- it's more that those who like it aren't necessarily interested in RPing it.

None of the RPs where you have to play a pre-made character take off.

I'm locking this topic. There is no need for any type of bickering. Shigetomo, you are welcome to try again.
