I find forum RPs to be a little more difficult than ones I might do with one or two people on Skype or Discord (or scraps section of deviantART...). Which is where most people do RPs these days anyway. So there's less interest to do them on forums.

Since I'm new to forum rps, I'm curious as to how they work.

Are they done in a thread, PM or something else?

It's done with thread. Sadly, the interest has faded away.

I still have interest, but many others are long-gone...

At this point, it's easier to just do RPs in private group chats...which is how I've been doing RPs for quite some time now.

But I want as many participants as possible! Not limited to a group.

I like having a smaller number of people, personally. It allows just a little more ability to communicate.

Plus, I'm not sure how much I want people reading the RPs I'm involved in...things get wild. Maybe not much different from Game of Thrones, but...

Well, I know this board has been inactive for a good long while, buuuut with everything going on just now, I wonder if anyone would be interested in RPs/coming up with ideas for RPs?

Was gonna post in the comic forum about whether or not we'd be likely to see an official IDW RPG book maybe, since there is a connection to the 'After the Bomb' RP books going on currently

Anyhow, happy to talk anything RPG related with Turtles right about now, so throwing this message in a bottle out into the internet ocean and seeing what comes back!

Just hopping in. I'm no RP specialist but I confess I'm intrigued by the possibility of a RPG based around the current situation in Mutant Town. I was actually contemplating a post speculating about factions, groups and places inside the town and stuff like that would play into a RP setting.

Oh gosh, yeah, the options are big and wide and I'd love to see if there was any way to make stuff happen, I regularly D&D over the computer nowadays, so would love to have something far out there to give them something exciting to mix things up

I know there's a lot of homebrewing that goes on in creating characters and stuff for D&D with 'variant human' being an off-cited choice, there's also a D&D expansion called Ravnica which has a Hybrid race specifically made to allow genetic splicing of different critters that you could use as a baseline likely for your various different mutants depending on what you wanna go for

The enclosed space of the quarantine zone gives plenty room for adventuring scope whilst also meaning you don't have to develop a full world, but you could still go down into different areas like the sewers, or, maybe even further if you wanted to go way out there into the more fantastical supernatural elements like the Pantheon getting their giggles or finding an eldritch temple deep below the town a la Turtles: Infestation 2?

This is true, also, given that Mutant Town is superimposed on a real life map of Manhattan, you have a frame work to build stories around both the fictional and real life. There were actually some fairly historic spots and neighborhoods walled off in Mutant Town.
Spoiler:


Have fun opening up a map app and imagining that Wal Greens with a 2 star Yelp rating being run by a Turkey Person.

Given TMNTís setting, with both Magic and Sci Fi playing a role, you could definitely bring in all sorts of elements, like the Lovecraftian monsters from the Infestation stories.

You definitely know more about RPG game settings than I do, I was sort of interested in how rolling up characters might work, building someoneís backstory and how that might give perks: Being a former doctor, a cop, and EPF agent that was mutated, escaped Null animal mutant like Krisa, Purple Dragon member, etc.

Ooooooh, that is true, we do have the map to superimpose onto stuff and see where everything's going down

If I'm looking at the map right, that's everything east of Broadway/Park Avenue and between East Houston/East 36th? That sound about right?

I'm pretty much a newbie at trying to build anything sadly inside D&D, how you'd roll characters is something in itself, usually I'd wanna see builds of characters who are gonna be the NPC versions of the five turtles, etc before you then compare them to anyone else

Weirdly enough, the D&D book already has a turtle race, lol, I haven't bought the book yet, but have no idea how adept they are at being ninja or not

I think there are some things you can manage and some you'd have to either flavor-wave away or just build stuff from the ground up

Heck, a lot are likely covered in subclasses I've never even read yet, the Fighter Class in D&D has all players choose a specialised style that sets everyone apart

(Ironically, just looked this up, there IS in fact a Purple Dragon Knight type that specialises in allies, was gonna say rogue-ish type for a thug from the Dragons, but higher ups could hold this likely to direct all their underlings maybe?)

...

I also wanna say I'm sorely tempted to the idea of an IDW-verse Martin Milton/Sir Malachi from Nick's 2k12 show up as the first ally of the player characters to lead them on to whatever adventure they embark upon since he was based around a person who loved RPs, dunno if that'd be TOO on the nose or not, lol

I think so, Turtlepedia actually listed some of the real life locations and geography surrounding it. Not very knowledgable of New York but it does seem like you have some culturally significant places and neighborhoods there actually.

Nah, go for it! Though I sort of imagined an intro with your character being newly mutated or having to be rescued from the other side of the wall, then brought to the Splinter Clan dojo?

Odd thing about the Purple dragons: Earlier maps showed them controlling both the area just north of where Mutant Town was and a large part of where Mutant Town now is. There were still active around the wall in the Jennika mini...maybe they have members on either side coordinating? Just thinking out loud here.
