Quick FAQ



Check out the Guidebook below for complete information on the group.

:bulletred: How do I join the group? :bulletred:
Otherworlde RP Group Application by viralremix
Fill out the application and submit it to the Students folder. If the application is accepted, you will be sent an invite.

:bulletred: What are the activity requirements of the group? :bulletred:
One deviation (roleplay, story, art) per three months. You don't have to pass your classes but your student might be sad... granted, it's not hard to pass a class if you turn in a quick picture, short roleplay, or short story twice in three months.

:bulletred: I'm intimidated by the group. I don't know if I'm good enough? :bulletred:
Well, you shouldn't be! We have a large range of roleplayers with lots of different skills. Beginners to experts... you'll learn a lot while you're here, or teach a lot. But everyone's welcome.

:bulletred: What submissions do you accept? :bulletred:
Logged roleplays, short stories/long stories, artwork (traditional or digital). Just about anything!

:bulletred: What is EXP used for? :bulletred:
It is most useful in tournaments, but as a general rule, EXP gauges how strong a character is in comparison to his/her/hir peers.

:bulletred: Where do people roleplay? :bulletred:
Get new partners by commenting on apps of characters that interest you. You can also join the Skype Group and join into random small RPs that start up to flesh out your character and get others used to them, or ask if anyone wants to start one with you privately.

:bulletred: How do I join the Skype Group? :bulletred:
Send your Skype username to viralremix to be added to the group Skype Chat.

2016 Valentine's -- PAIRS ANNOUNCED

Wed Jan 20, 2016, 6:19 PM


Paris says:

It's a beautiful day outside! Snow is falling, birds are nonexistent, and love is in the air! On days like today, students like us... should have some fun! Especially in light of what's... happened. But! We're not going to go into detail about that. Since my holiday's coming up, I decided my club needs to run a campus wide event for you all!

(Ignore the fact that it's a club of one right now, shhh!)

I have four things in mind for this special holiday, I hope you'll consider joining any or all of them! Students and teachers and even visitors are allowed to participate in the fun and the games! In fact... it's encouraged. >u> ~~

EVENT ONE: BLIND DATES!



Mon Cheri Paris by BlueBlueFox
Paris says:


This one is simple! All you singles out there, this is your chance to maybe find your soulmate~ Or maybe you just want to make a new friend! Whatever your reasons happen to be, this is where you should sign yourselves up!

How does it work?
Simple! You have from Jan 20th to Jan 31st to sign your character(s) up for the blind dates! Please avoid signing up reflections and counterparts both for this event, as it can mess with lore and dates both, and we don't want confusion!

On January 30th, all characters will be assigned numbers and paired up via Random.org's random rolling!

What is the goal?
Collaborate on art, writing, or RP of how the blind date between your characters went! Foster friendships, set sail on new ships, whatever may happen~ The deadline is February 29th at 11:59PM MST!

What are the rewards?
1.5x EXP multiplier on all submissions!

EVENT TWO: BABIES!


Mon Cheri Paris by BlueBlueFox
Paris says:

Children born out of love are the best kinds of kids! Well, kids in general are pretty nice, as long as they are well behaved! This event is just a branch off blind dates and couples in general, you get to sign up and simply see what wonderful creation would come from your genes.

C'mon, you know you're curious!

How does it work?
The pairs as listed in the blind dates, as well as established partnerships commented on this journal will be eligible for this event! If you want to sign up for this event, you will have to be in an established ship or also sign up for the blind date aspect of this monthly event; signing up for this event is not mandatory to sign up for blind dates!

Established ships are open to sign up for this event between Jan 20th and Jan 31st! Like the blind date event, all couples will be assigned numbers and randomly rolled through Random.org! But why? Well, it's more fun if other partnerships design your children for you, right?

What's the goal?
Collaboration on the design of "crackbabies" between the people of your assigned couple! The finished piece should include art found on the meme, as well as a brief description of the child for the "happy" parents! It is up to the parents' owners as to whether they would like to keep the children or not! The deadline is February 29th at 11:59PM MST!

What are the rewards?
Base EXP of 30 per partner on each submission!
If you'd like, you can keep the child created for your pairing!


Please use the following meme for this event:

EVENT THREE: SWEETHEART SABOTAGE!


mParis says:

What's a Valentine's day without celebrating the bitter truth that maybe no one loves you? Or rather, raising awareness that you're single? Of course, I don't mean it TOO terribly... but let's let the others more frown-faced about this holiday get their time to shine, as well. After all, in the hard cold world... not everything's nice and sweet, and you shouldn't fool yourself into thinking that.

>n>

How does it work?
A competition to sabotage as many couples or romantic endeavors as possible throughout the month! It can be as harmless as dropping water on them as they try to kiss, or as bad as tricking one of them into being the victim of your assignment! Try not to go TOO wild, however... this isn't Valentine's Massacre 2 or anything like that!

Couples are also allowed to participate! How do they prepare for the onslaught? Or do they try to play matchmaker with the bitterly alone people? Perhaps they decide to sabotage their fellow couples? That's up to you!

What's the goal?
To make everyone feel included in a way! However the end goal is to not utterly ruin ships or ruin anyone's good times; please ASK before you target anyone in particular, because we would like everyone to enjoy this event!

Those who are targeted will be asked if they gave permission.

The deadline for this event is February 29th, 11:59PM MST!

What are the rewards?
1.5x EXP multiplier per submission!
1 assignment pass per every participant (who keeps this polite)!
Those who do the "most sabotages" ranked 3rd, 2nd, and 1st get a bonus 500 EXP!

EVENT FOUR: VALENTINE'S DANCE!


Mon Cheri Paris by BlueBlueFox
Paris says:

What's a Valentine's day without a dance, a chance to go out and have fun with your partner?

Just come and enjoy the atmosphere and time.

When and where is this?

Unfortunately, my time at this academy has come to an end. I just don't have the time to keep up with such an involved group anymore due to needing to focus on my schooling. I love you all, and will miss you. Maybe I'll be back in a few years, who knows. Anyway, have a good life everyone. <3

Well, neither of my dates are on the permission list, so if you want to use my characters, you'd have to mess with them by themselves instead of sabotaging their dates.

My two characters are available, but it would probably be best to wait until I find out who their dates are to see if they're OK with it.

So an update. I'm going away for upwards a year or longer. leaving feb 1. I have no idea if I'll have computer access. I was wondering if there was some kind of archive I could have Xio put in. I really don't want to leave this group, I just don't know how limited I will be on computer access.
