Hey Pancake! 

I have some tips/pointers that may be helpful.  

Typically, when CBers create a RP, they give background information or a prologue to set the stage for the role play and guide the story. This will also help guide the CBers when creating their charries if the RP is set in a fantasy world, futuristic world, alternate universe, etc. 

I hope you found this useful, and welcome to the CB!

Hi there, Pancake, I like your name!!

Welcome to the Chatterbox! It's an awesome place.

As for Role-playing?  I agree with pangolin, and also if you want there to be a limit to players you should say so (if not, no problem!). But, a role-play can be anything you want it to be--that's the best part. Sometimes people state rules for their role-play, other times just a brief note about the backround. So, it's up to you, and I'm blathering on about it, so let me just say that I'm excited to join this RP!

RP Backstory


Yuka was living in the Forest of Misale with some of her friends. She had been guarding Efra's Diamond for years. Efra's Diamond was a very powerful object. Efra had been the greatest mage alive. She had taught Yuki all the spells that Yuki knew now. Efra had died a long time ago. She had left her diamond in Yuki's care.


Suddenly, Yuki heard a shout from the building that had Efra's Diamond in it. Yuki had been training, so she ran over just in time to see a thief taking the diamond! She chased him as she was the fastest and her friends were all injured. She finally caught him... but he no longer had the diamond! She threw him to the ground and and ran back, looking for the diamond.


She heard footsteps and turned to see Conner. He was holding the diamond looking triumphant. "Give it back!" Yuki yelled. "No way. It's too valuable for you!" He laughed. Yuki shot an arrow at him, but he dodged it. "See ya!" He shouted, while running off. Yuki knew she couldn't chase him, so she headed back to where her friends were.


She got supplies and head for Coinshe, which was the closest city. When she got there, she put up posters saying she needed ten very skilled people to help her on her quest. She put the address of the inn where she was staying, so they could find her. Then she went to her room to rest...



OK! That is my backstory. By the way, this is a whole different universe, and they don't have electronics. The setting is basically a long time ago, but I'm not sure when it would be, so I am saying it is a different universe. Please join! Also,, for the writing, write only from your character's point of view, and only one character per person please!

Ooh, fun! I've never done a roleplay before, this seems fun!

Name (& pronunciation): Ajax (pronounced the way it looks.. not ay-jacks, uh-jacks)

Date of Birth (& age): he doesn't remember, but he's around 13-19 ish

Place of Birth: in the forest

Gender: he/him

Species/Racial Origin: His is fantasy-ish, right? If so, a Tabaxi (they're sort of cat-people.... you can Google it if you want

Social Class/Community Status: A few coins he's found on the ground, otherwise no money. he lives in the forest and hunts and forages for food. He's seen other people from a distance, but is kind of scared of them

Family/Friends/Pets/Etc: he never knew his family. The closest thing he ever had to a family was a tortle (a humanoid turtle) named Nikolis (pronounced Nicholas, his nickname's Nik) who raised him, taught him to hunt, etc. Nikolis went hunting one day and never came back :( He doesn't really know anyone else except animals

Height: 6'5" (AHAHHAAH TABAXIS ARE TALL I can finally be tall (I'm 4' 9" in real life lol))

Fur: (I changed it to fur because he's a tabaxi) leopard-like fur (yellowish brown with darker spots)

Eyes: bright green

Typical Clothing/Equipment: sort of messy-looking, patched-up shirt and pants. Gray-green cloak for camouflage (think about a Ranger cloak if you've read Ranger's Apprentice). For equipment he has a bow (for hunting) a small bag with edible plants (for snacks), and a staff that Nik gave him (for looking cool, the bit of magic he can do, and occasionally poking people). He also has some bandages made of leaves (just in case)

Personality/Attitude: Awkward (because he's only talked to one person), views things in ways other people don't. He's a scaredy-cat to say the least. Introvert. I guess we'll figure out the rest in the RP...

Skills/Talents: Tree climbing, archery, running, jumping, anything involving agility

Favourites/Likes: trees and moss (fav plants), the colors lime green and yellow (fav color), bow and arrow(fav weapon), 7 (fav number), any berries (fav food)

Most Hated/Dislikes: mud and water, the number 4, axes and other two-handed weapons

Goals/Ambitions: he just wants to live a happy life alone in the forest, but nature seems to have other plans...

Strengths: He sees thing differently than other people so that helps when coming up with a strategy I guess? Basically the same stuff that's in Skills/Talents.. and if you play D&d anything using a dexterity check

Weaknesses: Anyhing requiring a lot of physical strength (if you play D&d, anything using a strength check), talking to people (he doesn't really have practice because the only people he's ever talked to are himself and Nik.

Fears: water, death, having everything depend on him

Hobbies/Interests: archery, tree climbing, cooking (even though he's terrible at it. But he likes his own food, so that's what matter I guess XD)

Strange Behaviors: Chases birds and mice whenever he sees them, tries to catch flies/leaves/bits of unknown stuff in the air whenever he can

Education/Special Training: Was taught by Nik how to hunt and shoot a bow. He taught himself how to climb trees and is very good at it.

Occupation: None? He has almost no money (which is fine with him, he doesn't understand the word money) but he hunts and forages for food and Nik was a very talented tortle and made a nice house. Ajax might get a job later on when he meets humans, but not yet.  :3

additional notes: Nik tried to teach Ajax magic, but Ajax tended to make things explode too much to be taught. However, Ajax practiced on his own in the forest and after years of work taught himself a simple spell. It makes vines come out of the ground and trap an enemy. However, it takes a lot of energy and Ajax normally passes out after casting it.

I am Pancake, just making a notice! Reserved spots are held for one week. Kitty Cat, you have one week to make your character before losing your reserved spot. In other words, you have until the 24th. You can reserve again after or you can just make a charcter. You do not have to reserve to make a character.
