Notice: Slow. Not great. Will be okay.

Reminding me you're waiting is totally okay. If you would like to drop an RP with me for any reason, even just that you're tired of waiting or simply don't feel excited about it, please let me know. I won't hold it against you. :)

RP Preferences
I thrive on flexibility. I'm typically happy to adjust my characters to fit different settings, and you may notice variability actually built into many of my characters - shapeshifting, wandering, deceptive pretending.

Style: I average 1-4 paragraphs, and expect the same of others. I do understand that sometimes a couple sentences is all that can be achieved, and I don't mind posts coming out long when there's a lot to describe. Be clear with description, do your best at grammar and spelling, and first-person should only be used for dialog and thoughts. I also prefer things being written fairly straightforward; show-don't-tell is both fine and excellent, but imagery and metaphors should be clear and sensible. (I have trouble picturing things.)

Combat: I'm most used to a write-it-out method where the outcome of fights is determined by writing each other into corners and/or plot. However, I've been starting to work a little with dice. I don't have any particular system I stick to, but when I make a roll, I try to keep in mind the skill of both characters and any circumstances that might affect things (for example, shooting accurately while running is a lot harder than while standing still, so I'll increase the numbers that result in a miss). If there's a method you'd prefer, I'm happy to talk it over. :)

Other notes: I'm not against romance, but it should certainly not be expected. I might get into suggestive stuff, but I'd rather not write detailed smut. I'm generally fine with character death, limb loss, and other permanent injuries, so long as it's fitting and for a reason (I may only acknowledge it in that continuity anyway). I'll likely ask you the same before I do anything serious to any of your characters, but it's also nice if you let me know up front. And, I have no problem with characters who swear (though I'll admit I get tired of every other word being a cuss pretty quick).

I'm kinda burnt out about vampires and zombies, and although I have no problem with part-animal characters in general (I have a few myself), I prefer when animal people aren't the primary or only thing all over the world (mostly because it's so unfamiliar to me). I'm also not a fan-RP person, especially since my exposure to most entertainment media is pretty limited.

Quick Style Key
This is narrative. It may have emphasis at times.

((This is an out-of-character note.))

"This is spoken dialog."

This is a character's private thought. Some characters protect their thoughts from intrusion, so ask before reading someone's thoughts.

'This is dialog via telepathy. It may be directed at an individual, or it may be a general projection.'

Just Me
These days I usually go by Novalyyn (a name I took from one of my oldest characters, who arguably stole it from me first), but I've previously been (and in some places, still am) known by Dragon Moon and occasionally a few other names.

I've been roleplaying since my early teen years, and writing even longer. Usually I've stuck to small communities; even in larger ones, it was mostly the same group of people I'd see all the time. At one point, I ran a forum that had its own detailed-and-growing world, but lack of members and activity led me to shut it down; references to it still exist in some of my characters.

I have a water dragon named Scamp. I luffs her. <3

If I ever seem quiet and withdrawn, it's most likely either because I've gotten thoroughly distracted by something else, or I'm concerned about being a nuisance or coming across as pompous and pushy. I'm silly like that.

Stuff I Do
I hug people for a living. I'm also a janitor and a limited bartender, and am working on becoming a flight attendant.

More of my writing can be found on Writing.Com. Other art and more writing can be found on deviantArt. What it comes down to is: I like to make stuff.

  • I haven't actually talked to Novalyyn, but can't help but say a few things. This wonderful person always seems to be there in the group chats, and has great ideas and kind words to offer. I know you don't know me well, Nova, but hey, I'm glad I get to be on the same site as you!
