Open The Midnight Ball (based on Monster Prom) (discussion)

Discussion in 'General Role Play Discussion' started by NotaViolinist, Jul 2, 2020.

  1. Rp here!

    Summary: You're a student at the nation's most premier school for monsters! The Midnight Ball is only a few weeks away; will you muster the courage to ask your crush out? And will they say yes?

    Here are some basic rules for the rp:
    1) Try to be good at replying! This is intended to be a short rp anyway.
    2) Follow the forum rules, as per usual.
    3) If you'd like to join after the story picks up just ask down below! I'd be happy to write in new characters as we go along.

    And one last thing, if you're worried about grammar for any reason (English isn't your first language, you feel like you're bad at it) I'd be happy to help with editing posts. Just let me know!

    This is strongly based on the game Monster Prom by Beautiful Glitch and Those Awesome Guys. I've personally never played (I spend too much time on DQXI and Fire Emblem lol), but I've watched playthroughs and I really like the concept. There are secret endings in this rp, and I'm open to any improv that someone suggests (such as "I know this character isn't listed below as dateable but I think she's super cute can I ask her to prom anyway?"). This rp is intended to be humorous and open to all!

    Here's a template for player characters, it's a bit unorthodox but will help me give you accurate beginning stats (Intelligence, Courage, Creativity, Fun and Wealth)!
    Name:
    Type of Monster:
    Gender/sexuality (optional):

    Crush (can change later!):
    Some questions to determine stats (answer in character!):

    • Do you post your opinions/beliefs freely, or do you research everything intensively before doing so?
    • Would you rather spend time with friends, or stay in and do your hobbies?
    • Would you rather fight for honor, or for treasure?
    • Have you ever made a bad decision that ended up being a fun experience? Y/N
    • Which is more your style, street fights or stage fights?
    • Which metal appeals more, silver or steel?

    • Would you rather own a mainstream business or a niche business?
    • Would you tell your friends to knock something off if they were doing something dangerous? Y/N

  4. I've heard of that game, I may not have played it though or seen full playthroughs or anything, hopefully that doesn't decrease my chances on being able to join. I'll see if I can work up a bio later.

  5. Nice character! Just so you know, if you put 'both' for an answer I won't count it towards your stats, it's fine if you keep those answers but your total stat count will start -2! If you want to change them feel free to reply to this with your new answers. Otherwise, your stats are:
    Intelligence: 2 Courage: 3 Creativity: 1 Fun: 1 Wealth: 1
    A pretty even spread with the most dominant trait being courage!
    You can join in the rp whenever you want!

  7. You can put some if you'd like, personally I think in a 'dating sim' style it's easier to go by a choice-by-choice matter instead of having a set personality. But if it helps you get in character go for it!
    Your stats are:
    Intelligence: 1 Courage: 2 Creativity: 2 Fun: 4 Wealth: 1
    Another even spread with a clear advantage toward fun! If this doesn't completely match your character that's fine, it's just a starting thing and there will be plenty of chances to up the stats you want.
     
  8. I was thinking of my char being a fun loving guy anyway. Kinda why I made his clothing style look flashy.

  12. Basically how Monster Prom works is wherever you go there will be a random event occuring (I'll roll dice for it). Certain students are more common in certain areas, but there's a chance to get any student at any place (except certain areas like the shop, where you can buy stuff).
     
  13. Also even if you don't get the student you're aiming for, you can still gain stat points through each event so you're still making progress toward winning their affection.
     
  14. I love the sketch! Accepted!
    Here's your stats:
    Intelligence: 2 Courage: 3 Creativity: 3 Fun: 0 Wealth: 2
    There's a leaning towards courage and creativity with a lack of fun.

  15. One more question before I post is should we put down what our chars will be doing within the areas they go to?
     
  16. Good question! I think the short answer is, only vaguely. You can describe like specific things within that area, such as "they went to the tennis court" or "they went to music class" but certain events I have planned make more sense in nearby places within that area ('football field' or 'the classroom next door', so if I roll and get those I'll have the students veer off course slightly.

    It is fine if you want to write your character doing something specific, but I don't want anyone forcing any encounters with their crush! Like saying "I went to the auditorium and Penny was there." But you can say that 'I really like Penny, so I headed to the auditorium hoping I would catch her in the middle of practice' or something to that effect. Hopefully that explanation makes sense!
     
  17. That also works, I was planning for Leonard to actually go somewhere to practice his dancing for the prom, so would you suggest the auditorium or the gym for such a place?

    Side note, I'm picturing Leonard also being knows as "The flamboyant vampire."
     
    NotaViolinist likes this.
  18. Hmm... either could work! The auditorium is more specialized in dancing/arts so I think that would be the best place, but if you wanted to choose the gym saying that he wants to practice dancing there that would also make sense. The nickname works too!
    Would everyone know him as "Lenny" or would only his good friends call him that?
     
    IDKWhatUserNameToDo likes this.
  19. Nah, a everyone can call him "Lenny" unless they're more along the formal side when it comes to calling people by name.

    Also, even if he has a crush on Penny, he's not always gonna make excuses just so he can see her.

    Edit: Aaannd now I just realized how similar Leonard's nickname sounds compared to Penny's name.

  20. Heh what a coincidence! Just thought I'd add that when I give options in the rp there's no need to go along with one or the other answer (unlike the beginning quiz), just go with whatever's in character. Someone will agree with you no matter what you choose, so you won't lose affection points by choosing something that doesn't necessarily align with either character.
     
  21. So you mean like between a lance or bow, Leonard could pick something like an axe?

    Edit: Shall I add those stats (Plus the +1 creativity) to Lenny's bio?

  22. Since Cmeriwether chose a location that's already been done, I want to explain the rules I'm using to write events:
    - 1:5 chance of the event being the MC and one person, or the MC and two people
    - 2 (*7): 1(*5) chance of getting a main dateable character versus a side character, +1 for specific characters depending on location, and subtracting any characters that have already been seen at other locations
    - There's a few other rules that mess with probability for certain characters on certain days or at certain locations but they would be spoilers!

    So even though Vedius is technically at the auditorium, the event I rolled for Cmeriwether involves Ankaa and Ke'ah, so he won't be involved in it. I think this is the fairest way to go about things without having people go specifically for the characters they want! Thanks for listening to my insane ramble lol.

  23. So, should I add the stats to Lenny's bio?
     
  24. You can if you want, I'm keeping track and will restate stats at the beginning of every day probably.
     
  25. Alright, fair enough, not to choose between staying to chat with Fuyuko or having him get back to dancing.
     
  26. If you want to write a reaction to Fuyuko's event that's cool with me, you won't be directly involved in the event but since it's in the same room it makes sense.
     
  27. Alright, just making sure.

    Also: Permission to lightly auto Ankaa and Veidus by pulling them in to his arms as if pulling them for a group photo?

  28. Sure thing!
     
  29. I was having Fuyuko react to the event so far, and waiting for Ke'ah as well, what is the Event?
     
  30. Oh I was waiting for you lol, since Lenny asked you something. I'll post it now
     
  31. I just thought to ask about the flow of the days in this RP. Like how many places can we chose to go to before it's lunch and/or the day ends (I can't remember how many there are in the actual game). Also are the lunches gonna be the same as in the game?
     
  32. Haven't got much else planned for Leonard in the auditorium; he's likely gonna keep dancing until he feels like he's practiced enough, question is where to make him go next.
     
  33. Every day is going to be one location (so as soon as Fuyuko's done with her fight we'll move to day 2). I honestly forget how lunches worked too, maybe we'll have one every 4 days? So you'll get 3 before the ball.

  34. @Cmeriwether Whenever you're ready to finish the fight!
     
  35. Should we put down what our chars will be wearing at them prom or will that just be left as a surprise so we have more time to think about em?

  36. I like that idea! I think it would be quite fun and to be honest I might draw Maya in her prom dress (and a better drawing than just a quick sketch too), but I'm fine with either options

    Also I've had a lot of fun with the rp so far (even if we haven't even gone through the first day yet)

  37. I agree, this RP's interesting already! I'm really glad with the char I made and I enjoy RPing as him, question is how everyone else may see "The flamboyant vampire."

    I should also try and see about upping Leonard's other stats if he's to get a chance at going with Penny.
     
  38. same!
    I see Maya as a "stick in the mud" (and kind of a silent awkward book worm)- type of character, but is trying to have more fun and be more loose so that she would have good memories to look back too.
     
  39. I depicted Leonard to be a fun/style loving vampire, he knows that all vampires are immortal but prefers to live every day like it's his last and focus on the now as he believes "Why live if you're not going to live well." The whole style and fashion thing is just a hobby of his.
