a rwby role play

about us
Legends. Stories, scattered through time. Mankind has grown quite fond of recounting the many exploits of heroes and villains, forgetting so easily that we are remnants - byproducts - of a forgotten past.

Join the ranks of Remnant’s prestigious Academies as you fight to protect the Four Kingdoms from the clutches of the evil Creatures of Grimm. Alternatively, you may work towards bringing the world to its knees by fighting against the last sparks of humanity. Red Like Roses is based on the hit web-series RWBY by Monty Oum and Rooster Teeth Productions.

What will happen this year?

A full description of your Aura looks/feels like should be placed here. This Aura not only has a color, it has a feeling to it; warmth, cold, comfort - you decide. This is a reflection of your soul. This Aura also has one special ability, defined by your character. More can be found <a href="http://forum.rwby-rpg.com/index.php?showtopic=4">here</a>. If you forgo your aura, out N/A in this section. Then also explain what their Semblance does in detail and list drawbacks that it has. No matter the use or purpose, ALL SEMBLANCES HAVE DRAWBACKS.

<div id="criteriah">SEMBLANCE.</div>


<div id="criteriah">WEAPON.</div>

A full description of your weapon's appearance and abilities should be placed here. Place the name of your weapon in <b>BOLD</b>. We want quite a bit of description for this part; what kind of Dust does the weapon use primarily? What is the purpose of the weapon? How does the weapon change from one mode to another? What is the character's fighting style with the modes? We'll ask you questions about your weapon should we feel the need, but this is a critical part of the application.

<p>

BONUS: This is a misc section for any equipment your character may have that is not really a weapon. These are like, steel tipped boots, a bullet proof cloak, etc.

</div><p>
<div id="tab">PERSONAL PROFILE</div>
<div id="smalltext">
<p>
<div id="criteriah">APPEARANCE.</div>

Using at least a paragraph, describe the character's appearance. Some ideas to include are as follows: height, body type, hair, eyes, color, what their clothes are outside the school uniform, tattoos, piercings, etc. If you feel you must use an image, please use a link, not image tags.

<p><div id="criteriah">PERSONALITY.</div>

These are the traits that makes a character who and what they are. Please write this section in paragraph format. A well-rounded character has an equal number of positive and negative personality traits; keep that in mind. Hobbies, likes, dislikes and other important information about the character's psyche can also be filled out in this section. A mod will ask you to clarify points if they feel that it isn't clear enough. A really useful resource can be found <a href=http://www.personalitypage.com/html/portraits.html>here</a>.


<p><div id="criteriah">HISTORY.</div>

In this history, we are looking for a description of your character’s childhood, teenage years, adult years (if applicable) and an explanation of what your character's next plans are. At least write a paragraph for each of these points, but you may write more if you wish. For artificially intelligent beings, just list their lab life and maybe why they were put into their respective Academy.

So what's this about? Well, to put it simply, it's about funding the many things we've been asked about on RLR. While the staff providing such things out of pocket is definitely possible and likely, I thought it might be worth gauging community interest in making the funding of a few key elements to Red Like Roses a community-wide endeavor. Before we go through the rigamarole, let me make a few things clear:
  • We are not going to make you donate! So don't feel bad if you can't!
  • We are not going to give people in-game benefits if they do!
  • All donations will ONLY be used for the funding of Red Like Roses. Full transparency - that is a promise.

It may come as a surprise to some that running a forum the way we've been running Red Like Roses has been expensive in its own right. The domain we purchased is about $15 USD per year, with the CBox sitting at about $20 USD for the year (unless my numbers are off). We've been very lucky to have had people pitch in for both of these things in the past. However, there is a new variable that is frequently brought up, and we are more than willing to implement if people want it:

JCink's Premium Service.

This costs $80 USD per year (I'm not sure if there's any tax, but I don't believe there is) and gives us many little perks we can use to help the site - notably content freedom and the removal of ads. A lot of people use AdBlock, which isn't bad in and of itself, but it would hinder the site's ability to make money through ad revenue if we were to try to monetize it. Content Freedom is likely the best of the perks, as some players have an itch for graphic/explicit scenes in their posts.

So the overall cost for funding RLR, if we went Premium, would sit at about $115 USD for an entire year. Not too bad, right? This is broken down as follows, in case you missed it:
  • JCink Premium: $80
  • CBox Premium: $20
  • RWBY-RPG.COM Domain Renewal: $15 (less when there are coupons)

The idea behind running a donation page is to raise money for at least JCink Premium - that is, the $80 USD portion of the above. If we manage to get enough in donations, we can set up the service and be on our merry ways, If we receive donations but not enough for Premium (assuming we limited the fundraising to a specific timeframe) or even have a surplus, perhaps we could all vote on a Charity to donate the raised funds to.

Now, while I don't think in-game bonuses would be appropriate, I do believe that people that make an effort to help the site deserve some recognition. My ideas for donator perks include, but are not limited to:
  • Custom color for your name in the CBox
  • Custom made graphics for you to display on your forum account(s)
  • A special CBox icon, in replacement of or in addition to the custom color.
  • A dedicated thread to donators, which will include links to their characters, plotters, want ads, etc. Not an in-game bonus, but something to help them stand out a little bit.

The Takeaway: If this is something we can do, great! If not, still great! As always, RLR will find a way to make things work and keep on keeping on. If votes are in favor, the whole thing will be completely transparent - and we will disclose the balance of the donation pool at member request. The only thing we won't show you is the RL names of the people who have donated, if such information is even included.

Thanks for your time, and happy voting!

Hello Community!<p>

It's that time of the year again as we prepare for Summer, bringing with it all sorts of fun and things - but also a potential period of "lag" for the site. <b>DO NOT FRET!</b> It's commonplace that some sites, especially fandom ones (at least, in my experience) to slow down during the Summer.<p>

People are graduating, looking for colleges, getting new jobs and working said jobs - it's a hectic time for everyone! That said, RLR has and will continue to pull through and come back stronger than ever - and that's assuming we even slow down!<p>

As some of you know, we're in the midst of planning a cross-site tournament with Syne Academy, another RWBY forum of comparable size to RLR. We figured this would be a great way to bring the fandom together, as well as have a little bit of fun on the way. You can read more about this tournament HERE, as well as visit and sign up on the Proboards site dedicated to the tournament HERE! Remember, the tournament is students only! Matches are expected to begin June 1st, so get in there quick and post in our sign-up thread so we can get the matchups started!<p>

For responding to the <b>Activity Check</b>, please use the following template and <b>post here</b>. If you don't respond within a week, your character will be put in a state of "limbo" until you can respond. This is to safeguard those of you that are tied up with graduation, college visits, and life in general from losing all your hard work. After a month of inactivity, however, unclaimed characters will be archived and they will lose whatever titles (such as faculty position) they hold.<p>

<b>Activity Check Template:</b><br>
Cbox Name: <br>
Character(s) Keeping: <br>
Character(s) Dropping: (If any)<p>

<b>Code:</b><br>
CODE
[b]Cbox Name:[/b]
[b]Character(s) Keeping:[/b]
[b]Character(s) Dropping:[/b] (If any)





In other news, I believe that we on the Staff team owe the entire community an apology. We very well could be doing our jobs better, and while everyone has their reasons for somewhat slacking as of late, they do little to excuse the fact. That said, we will be making some changes to ensure that apps are reviewed in a timely manner, plots are moving accordingly, disputes are resolved appropriately, and more with the intent of making RLR a community for everyone and keep it that way.<p>

Until Ala is able to make a full return to the site, I will be acting as interim head admin and working to implement many of the changes the staff team has discussed in the depths of the Staff Chat. I look forward to working with <i>everyone</i> to ensure Red Like Roses is the absolute best it can be.<p>

To college/high school grads: Congratulations and good luck!<p>

To those finishing for Summer break: Also congratulations. You've still got a bit of a journey ahead, but if life has taught me anything it's that if you can make it through one, you'll make it through the rest.<p>

To everyone else that has a million and one things going on, keep on going! Sometimes the path ahead can seem a little rough, but with some perseverance, you <b>will</b> pull through! The rewards at the end of that tunnel, boy oh boy!<p>

See you guys in the cbox!

<p>♡Ken

This is a simple sign up thread for the cross-site tournament discussed HERE! A few of you have expressed interest in the tournament so far, they are:The matches will run from June to August, probably, and there is a Month's Subscription to Rooster Teeth up for grabs! Because this is a tournament involving two different sites - RLR and Syne - all matches and other related RP will take place HERE!

Go ahead and make your accounts/read rules/etc, and RP forums will be opened about a week before the tournament begins.

If you want to join this event, post here with the character you intend to use and feel free to shuffle on over to the event site!
