Rp or Ski

Chatterbox: Inkwell

Rp or Ski

Rp or Ski Lodge?


Wow. I haven't done a post in a LONG time. Only comments.

Anyways, I saw Inkwell and it's so full of RPs and Ski Lodges. I kind of wanted to start a Ski Lodge or an RP, but I don't really know if I'll be able to commit to it. A Ski Lodge sounds really fun, and so does an RP.

I was thinking I could do a Dragon RP or something. But I might need some help. And I don't really know how to do a ski lodge. I don't really know what I want to do. Does anyone have tips?

It's not really much... Some stuff aren't finsihed


There were 2 sides. Dark Dragons and (Unnamed) dragons. Dark dragons were threatening to attack, and recently, they had found a dark dragon in the unnamed dragon territory...


Dragons can have any power and look however, but dark dragons have special abilities.


Thats it... Reealy short. Maybe add wings of fire things?

Heh...that was what I was thinking....I was thinking that the Dark Dragons could be called the Myst Dragons...and the other side of dragons would be tribes we could make up together. Do you want to do that?

And I was also thinking that there could be a false Myst Dragon that's spying on the other tribes. I don't really know. I mean...cuz wings of fire is kind of already taken all the dragon ideas. We could change it to a dragon ski lodge, instead, that way we can just use characters that are made by CBers on forms.

Hmm, perhaps we could do something a bit more subversive...

Like, the Dark/Myst Dragon-clan are indeed spying on the other tribes/clans, and do plan to attack, but only because they have been terribly discriminated against and purposefully targeted in the past and present for their OP abilities. (Maybe the Dark Dragons were originally called Myst Dragons, but due to the fear and hatred of them, they are called Dark Dragons by the rest of the world in order to make them sound scarier, and to make themselves feel better about hurting them and taking their stuff). Now they are seeking revenge. But not just revenge fueled by blind rage, nor simply for the sake of conquest --- they only attack to regain their historical territory(which perhaps holds something of great physical or spiritual importance to them -- an underground lair that holds their diety; a promise that they would live as long as they inhabited this specific territory; the key to their means of reproduction, meaning that there are only a few Dark/Myst Dragons left, unable to have children without the resources of their lands. This could also explain that one rogue Dark/Myst Dragon, who was simply trying to salvage their kind, gather some of the mystical stuff in that land, etc.). And perhaps they are simply tired of living in the shadows and both the fear of their lives and the future of their clan. They wish to restore the power of the olden times, the golden days, and perhaps even surpass their ancestors' glory.


Not sure if this suits your tastes, but it could lend more depth and complexity to your story. Of course, I can come up with more backstories and reasons from the perspectives of the other tribes/clans if you're interested! I already have some excellent motivations brewing, and would like to paint all sides as understandable and realistically acting!

If you two aren't interested, that's also fine, I get very carried away sometimes, often in the wrong direction. Sometimes moral ambiguity and complex motivations is good to have in a story, but sometimes so is simplicity and a clear "good" and "bad;" I get it. Completely understand either way, just wanted to contribute to this cool project you're brainstorming on! :D

Hi Jaybells!

Do you maybe want to be part of this thread for brainstorming? I think it would be fun to throw out our ideas in here. 

My captcha has the hiccups.

Are you two alright with my idea from earlier, would you prefer the cut-and-dry/black-and-white story set-up, or do you not really care? Lol I just don't want to tamper too much and ruin the group's vision

I don't really care lol! But it'd be fun to work on the idea bit by bit, I'm a bit confused what I want the RP to be about.

Ooh I love that idea, Jaybells. You're really good.

The Myst Dragon name sounds better. I like the idea about the dark/myst dragons seeking revenge. I was thinking, that after the other side (No name yet) took over the dark/myst territory, they divided. Most dark dragons decided to try and get their land back by attacking when neccseary, and another group was furious and decided to wipe out all the other dragons on the unnamed side.

I REALLY like that idea. Then there's like DOUBLE war. So...help me brainstorm what to name the good dragons? Maybe...We could call all of the tribes' lands Purity, but then once the myst dragons came and inhabited half of the land, then they made it look so that half was black, and the other half is white sand?

Ooh, yes, I really like that, tigerqueen!

Having a stray group within the minority who are extremists could definitely make things more interesting~ Plus, the disasters the extremists cause could serve as reinforcement to the non-myst dragons that Myst dragons are no good, making it easier to villainize the whole group!

I'm kinda thinking that there could be more subdivisions between the 'Purity' side, and it turns out to be more of an alliance than a united clan, if you know what I mean. Like, maybe there are different quasi-elemental dragon clans, similar to Wings of Fire; and there is a hierarchy and complex system of politics, I guess. Kinda like most of Europe throughout the ages, especially the after the fall of the Roman Empire.

Like, maybe there could be a main Sky clan, who is closest to the light and can spout fire, etc. This places them on a higher tier than most. I haven't really thought the rest of the clans out terribly well, so I'll give that a while to steep for now.

Okay, how about this - Instead of doing different elements, we use the sun, moon and stars? The Purity side can command the sun, so anything fire, heat, and light related. Since the sun is the reason plants can grow, some dragons can control that to. Anything sun related. The myst side can control the moon, so shadows, moonlight, telepathy, and moon related stuff lol. The stars are neutral, so both sides can have shared abilities like telekenisis?

Just an idea. Right now, we have alot of good ones. When we finalize the sides, we should start shaping it into a world.  

heh, my captcha says ugh.

Yeah, that's a cool take on it!

It could be an interesting experience to see different families/other subdivisions of the larger Factions with specialized abilities!

Also, maybe the Star Faction is made up of a different kind of dragon, either being much older and mysterious, or diverse and numerous (I'm leaning towards the latter, the the sake of interesting content, but maybe there could be a few Great Ones or something? I don't know)

I also think that most of the Star Faction's members should probably have political/family ties with the Sun Faction, meaning that although they are technically neutral, it's still pretty obvious who many will actually favour in the end... (That could help isolate the Moon Clan, and make them feel as if the whole world is against them, even if there are some who are sympathetic/would help, if they got to know them better as dragons and friends)

That sounds good! 

Rora, what do you think?

Random idea: Maybe the Star Clans have a strict Caste System, and some of those unhappy with it could defect / start their own secretive group within the Star Clan.
