November EMP Meme

ENABLEMEPLZ

meme goes up on the last Saturday of every month

FOR GAME ADS:

Put an ad up with the characters / crew / pairings / fetish you want for your game under the correct game header. This meme is primarily going to be focused on DWRP games but IJ and LJ games are allowed.

ABSOLUTELY NO obnoxious coding (no font size > size 4 or 3 "big" tags, no banners, no blinking text, no obnoxious tables, no sparklies, no pictures). Use all the colors you like, but please remember 3 "big" tags is the limit and that's only for headers or title text rather than for all the text in an ad.

FOR GAME QUESTIONS:

RPers interested in a game can create a header for the game and ask questions about that game that aren't easy to find on faqs, such as the actual pace vs. what's listed/what kind of plots are run/if the game leans more towards plotty or slice of life/if a game leans more towards network or logs, etc. Both anon questions and anon answers are welcome in this section just like in the rest of the meme.

This thread is not for speaking about wank or drama in a game. There are anoncomms that exist for that. This thread is specifically for general questions about a game that rpers want to get perspective on from players already in the game. Answers can be slightly negative (such as saying app response is slow or that the plots are repetitive or similar things) but this should at least be worded politely. Unnecessary vitriol, any mention of personal drama or wank, or mod teams/individual mods/players being singled out, will be frozen and/or deleted.

FOR CHARACTER ADS:

Put up an ad about the characters you are offering. For PSL/1-on-1 ads, there is a separate subthread but for character ads for games, post directly to the meme post. Others will comment to you with the games/casts they want you to join.

There is a "Find a Castmate" section, where you can talk about a cast you play in at a game, and try to lure people to join it. Not all games post to the meme or have a "wanted" section, so players that want to tempt people to their cast on their own can use this section for it. Please format this the same as the PSL/1-on-1 section, where you post the canons in your subject. For the actual text of the ad you must use the "Find a Castmate" form provided at the bottom of this post so that these ads don't get huge. When listing who's currently in a cast, please do this in sentence form (with commas) rather than in list form.

ABSOLUTELY NO obnoxious coding, with the same rules as the Game Ads Section above.

If you're recommending a game to someone, try to match your suggestion to their needs. Try not to recommend the same game to every single ad, either.

you don't know how glad i am to hear that! it happens to be one of my all-time favorites, so i hope you enjoy the anime, especially since i know it's one of the lengthier shonen series out there. gon's a perfect character for light-hearted adventures and team fights/sparring in general, so you're right on the mark! i don't want to spoil you for later arcs, but he definitely gets his fair share of character growth later on down the line.

regrettably, i'm mostly canon-blind to dragon ball since i've only watched eps in passing back when they aired in early 2000s-era toonami, but i hope this doesn't deter you. is there any idea you're leaning more toward than the other? as far as memes go, if you dropped a toplevel here for ex, i'd be more than happy to tag you with a starter there!

I'm definitely not concerned about the length - I've been following One Piece for a long time now, and I'm getting into Jojo's Bizarre Adventure as well, so it shouldn't be too long by comparison to those two!

No problem if you haven't seen much of Dragon Ball - if you know basically any shonen manga/anime main character from the past twenty to thirty years, you've probably got a good idea of what Goku's like (maybe not all of them, but a lot are heavily based on him, like Gon, Luffy, and Naruto).

Coincidentally, I already had a top-level set up here! As for ideas, training seems like a natural fit, or maybe cooking could work. (I don't know about Gon, but Goku would likely be a horrible cook if it doesn't involve cooking something over an open fire - seems like he relies on Chi-Chi for that sort of thing)

your taste is stellar! i've always been scared to jump into one piece because the length is a bit intimidating, but i've read a bit of jjba myself and it's neat stuff.

also, don't quote me on this, but togashi (hxh's mangaka) is a huge fan of toriyama's works (in particular dragon ball), and allegedly owns and displays volumes of it in his own studio. i can definitely see the influence dragon ball has had on hxh too, especially in later arcs, so i don't doubt you in the slightest.

and gotcha! i couldn't decide between one or the other, so i tried doing a bit of both. let me know if the starter needs any changing and i'll get right on that!

It is so worth it. Admittedly, it might be harder to jump into than when I started (I started reading it weekly around chapter 400), but it's consistently great (really funny, well-drawn action, and never focuses on a particular character or group to the point where the interesting characters get left out).

The starter's fine - sorry I haven't responded to it yet, but I decided to read some of Hunter x Hunter. I skipped past what's already aired on Toonami, and I'm already past chapter 100 (Kurapika's kidnapped the leader of the Phantom Troupe). I think I might be addicted.

LMAO, that's the main thing keeping me from jumping into one piece head-first since it'd take me ages to play catch-up to the current chapter, but i'm pretty sure it didn't get its stellar reputation for nothing. the holidays have me a bit whelmed atm, but it's definitely on my to-read list once i catch up with my manga backlog!

and no probs! seriously, take as long as you want, i'm in no rush. i hope you enjoy the yorknew arc, btw. i definitely didn't foresee it concluding the way it does, so i hope it surprises you as much it did me while reading it.

Just finished Greed Island, and I'm starting the Chimera Ant arc (at least, I think so - I know that's an arc, and a giant ant creature just showed up). I feel like this is where the series' hiatuses started, since the art is getting really sketchy in places. Still, I'll try to type up a response either tonight or tomorrow.

you got through those arcs so quick, i'm in awe? it took me way longer to read through it all myself, ngl ... hxh is also known as hiatus x hiatus for a reason!! i've heard that the chapters around the end of the greed island arc to parts in the chimera ant arc were retouched/fixed for the tankobon volumes, but most of the scanlations found online definitely don't hide how rough and unedited it was when it was still being posted in shonen jump semi-regularly. it still amazes me to this day that it was published in that state, because i mean, just look at the turkey scene ...... literally one example out of many ..........

but no no, it's fine! i hope i'm not pressuring you or anything. the chimera ant arc is actually my favorite arc, but i almost dropped the series over it in the beginning, so i'm excited to hear your impression of it should you get further into it.
