What is a RP, you may ask? RP stands for role-play. It's like writing a book, only you write it with other people. You create a character (the format is in the description) and wait for it to be accepted. Once it's been accepted, you may RP with others by saying what your character, or OC (original character) does or says, and then they respond by doing the same, only with their OC. It's a bit hard to get the hang of, but if you don't understand, all of us here are glad to help and answer questions. You can also look at other peoples' RPs to understand how they interact, talk, and their technique.
You live a normal life. Normal friends, normal family, normal school... You do normal things, go to normal places, have have a normal world.
Everything changes one day when you find yourself stranded in a place unlike Earth. Perhaps a local is there with you, but chances are you're alone. Alone in this confusing place. Is it a dream? You pinch yourself, and it hurts.
You get up and feel... Strange. Stronger. More... powerful. Soon enough, you realize that's because you DO have powers. You count off the strange things that happened in your mind. First you're completely alone in magical woods. Two, it's not even Earth. And three, you have magical powers. You wander around this world, looking for shelter, when you come by a small village. It looks like it came straight out of a movie that's a cross between old and fairy-tale. The buildings are small and made of clay, and they have straw roofs. But it's a bustling town, with strange looking people popping in and out of the shops. For they are what we call aliens. Locals, enjoying their day.
However, there's a problem. You see, a raging power has begun somewhere in this world, an army led by the evil Shadow ( @foxfang4) This world has always lived in relative peace but Shadow wants none of that. They're evil and want nothing less than to rule the whole world. They're taking in humans who know no better, killing the locals of this world, and slowly taking over the whole planet.
So which are you? Are you still wandering the woods, lost and alone? Did you stop at one of the towns and move in? Did you get adopted by a family of aliens? Do you work for Shadow? Or do you live in a group with a few other humans? The possibilities are endless, and the choice is yours.

This one is very important, though it seems to have not worked very well. DO NOT TRASH THE STUDIO! I worked very hard on it twice now, and many people enjoy RPing here. Without a nice studio, people can't role-play. So please please PLEASE ask me ( @-kyoko) before changing the studio. Tell me what you want to change or would like changed, and know that I don't have to say yes.
Don't bully! Maybe someone doesn't know how to RP, maybe you have a mean OC, maybe SOMETHING happens, but nothing, I repeat, NOTHING gives you the right to bully someone. If you do have a mean OC, that's fine, but keep the bullying to the RP and the RP ONLY. This goes along the lines of hate the OC, not the Scratcher. They're not being mean to you, they're being mean to the OC because it's part of their OC's personality. Please understand that and don't get insulted if/when it happens.
I will not promote anyone unless they ask or have REALLY done something helpful (for example, @C-rumbles). Please ask on my profile ( @-kyoko) instead of here, though, to keep the studio relatively clean. I will not promote you if you have a bad history of trashing studios and I will not promote you *yet* if you haven't RPed here or even made a bio. Once you've RPed for a bit, I'll gladly promote you :)
Keep it PG. I don't know about you, but I've gotten quite a few messages from the ST about inappropriate RPing, so let's avoid that and keep romance to a minimum. Romance in RPs is fun, but I don't want anyone to get blocked or banned from Scratch.
If anyone has any ideas for rules or any additions to the description, please let me know! This could use all the help I can get!
If you've read this far, please hide if you like chocolate or vanilla better in your bio :)
