    Default The Tribune of RPA - New Years Edition!








    Ever wanted to submit something to the Tribune? Well, you can! Just refer to the rules here.

    To our humble readers, I am terribly sorry for this late edition of the Tribune. Things kind of got.. out of hand this month. It seems after the President denied the Martians the right to live on Earth without being sent to Area 51 to be experimented on, the Martians decided that their only way to make sure of peacefully living on their neighbor planet was to abduct people.

    Unfortunately.. Half the Staff was caught in their Abduction Beams and sucked into space. After living on Mars for awhile in domed Utopias, I received word that they will be back but the date is uncertain. Le sigh, I guess we'll have to be strong and go on without them. That, I hope, explains why there are some missing articles. But have no fear! We'll be back to normal come next issue!

    Breaking News!

    Extra, extra! Read all about it! The RPA Awards have been stolen in an Uprising formed by the Members of RPA. Unfortunately, the Staff has not been able to accurately identify the leader of the Uprising, but we will find you and we will beat you with Naz's Yellow Thong. He's been wearing them on his Bird Seed runs, so they're extra sweaty.

    Good news is though, the RPA Awards have been handed out to the winners and someday soon, everyone will be able to find out the secret treasures some of the Members stole - er - I mean won.


    January 2013

    This year, we started RPA off with a bang - if it was left up to others, RPA might've really experienced some fireworks.

    Our Member of the Month this January is Ru! She is Ru, and that is important to know. Yes.

    Go congratulate one of the most artistic, most hyperactive, most talkative members on RPA!




    Let's get down to business, shall we?

    Man, it's like drama just keeps unfolding here in the Tribune. I think Imp needs to stop watching Soap Operas and stop using the Tribune to mop up his tears. Be a man, Imp!


    The Storyteller


    In case you have missed the story so far, here is a recap of the last chapter, submitted by Imp!

    Spoiler: The Attic Chapter 4 


    First Chapter
    Second Chapter
    Third Chapter

    Due to the alien abductions and the Uprising, we do not have the next chapter for you.

    However, that should not stop you from submitting your own chapter to the story for us to read. If your submission is chosen, all of RPA - or at least everyone who reads the Tribune - will see your contribution. Did I forget to mention that you'll receive a prize for your article being published in the Tribune? Well, you do!

    The rules for submitting a piece for 'The Storyteller' is simple!

    The Rules:

    1. Submissions are limited to 500 words.
    2. All content must be rated PG-13 or lower. (since it's outside the mature forum? Again correct me if this is wrong)
    3. The winning submission will be chosen by newspaper/site staff based on continuity, creativity and quality.
    4. Entries can be sent via pm to G or Miss Fortune.

    Well, what are you waiting for? Get your submissions in! This will be the last chapter of 'The Attic'. Next issue, we plan on starting up another story or story idea.

    Forget about Cleo and Tut, it's all about Ramses!

    Ramses! Ramses the Damned!

    (M) Eternal Ramses by Setsa and Butterflieslies

    Er.. Ahem, pardon my horrible singing voice. Let's cut to the chase. Dr. Raphael Monrosi, an archaeologist from the States, discovered the tomb of Ramses the Great - a pharaoh who lived a thousand years before Cleopatra. The moment Ramses opened his eyes, the old archaeologist died of such fright that his heart couldn't take the shock. Many contradictions relating to the tomb exists. The curse inscribed on the Tomb foretells an interesting tale of Ramses being alive during the time of Cleopatra VI - an impossibility with mortals. It was said that Ramses hid the Elixir of Life somewhere among the alabaster jars filled with poisons and even went so far as to say Cleopatra looked for immortality in her life time.

    After the death of Dr. Raphael Monrosi, the contents of the Tomb were shipped back to California to the daughter of the late archaeologist. The hearts of mortals are often distorted with greed and the same can be said about Dr. Kingsley, another archaeologist, who goes so far as to hire a thief to break into the Auction House where Dr. Catilina Monrosi works, to steal the Elixir of Life. Now, you would never imagine an immortal Mummy waking up to save the life of a foolish human, but that's exactly what Ramses the Damned did. Not all mummies are evil, it seems. To protect the Elixir, Catilina and Ramses as well as others, team together to stop the dastardly thieves from gaining immortality.

    Setsa and Butterflieslies created an interesting tale of mystery, suspense, action and who knows, maybe a little romance, from the time of the Great Pharaohs of Egypt to the bustling streets of modern day California. Being the dork that I am, I've always loved learned about ancient history and different cultures. Nothing - aside from Ancient Greece - fascinated me more than Ancient Egypt and all the mysteries of the Pyramids, the Pharaohs and their Gods. To me, any story that can splendidly blend historical facts, modern day devices and mystery together is truly eye catching.


    From the IC of Eternal Ramses:

    Quote Originally Posted by Butterflieslies
    ‘It’s now or never, James,’ he urged himself. Taking a deep breath James charged at the door. Breaking through it he found himself face to face with the beautiful doctor holding her cup of coffee. He should have worn a mask but was too late for that. He ran towards her, grabbing at her throat and pushing her back towards the wall. The coffee cup shattered on the floor. There was a groaning sound: loud, the groan of a man but there was no one but him here. He had managed to pin Catilina against the wall, if he could just keep his grip she would pass out soon.

    Another groan followed by a tearing sound and shuffling. James was focused on the Doctor, his back to the now empty sarcophagus. A large hand caught him by the neck; defensively James let go of Catilina to free himself from the inhumanly strong hand. Turning he let out a loud scream. Looming over him, with a hand around his throat was a mummy, still mostly wrapped up; it had only managed to get one arm free, the other was still fastened against the creature’s chest by the bandages. James could see blue eyes glaring at him from a sliver of the linen wrapped around its face.

    Abandoning all thoughts but survival James managed to throw off the creature. It stumbled back and James took his chance to bolt out the door. He fled the building as fast as he could. The mummy, still off balance collapsed to the floor. Its other arm broke free, taking a chunk of linen with it; revealing a large portion of its smooth, tanned bare chest. It rose and fell heavily with labored breathing as the sun shone down on it. Drinking in the light the creature pulled at the linen binding his skull. A head of brown hair flopped out as the creature tore his face free. His eyes were closed as he lay still and absorbed the light.

    Ramses the Damned had awakened.



    January Pet of the Month


    Name: Destello de Plebeyo (his name means Wishing Star, roughly, in spanish!)
    Age: 6 years old
    Breed: Columbian Paso Fino
    Gender: Stallion (breeding male)
    Owner: Eli
    About him: A very special breed of horse, Paso Fino, he is known for his unique gait. Paso Finos can move at rapid speeds while keeping their back flat, allowing the rider to not move at all. Destello is my first horse, and my absolute love. He is a drama queen, and will mope if I do not visit him first when I come to the barn. I think he loves my orange cat more than me, but is certainty my horse through and through. He has several babies, and is quite the amazing show horse.
    Funny Fact: Des's forelock is so long it falls past his nose. His mane was 5 feet long at one point, with matching red highlight like his owner. When I got him, he was all black, but will slowly turn to a completely white horse as he gets older!
    Favorite snack: Cheerios.

    Member of the Week



    As amazing as this person is literate, friendly, inspirational and informative, they are a rather hardcore anime fan. You may know this person as an avid lover of Ranma 1/2, and their informative blogs about Transgender topics of conversation and growing to accept themselves, is it any wonder that CartelSaide won the 2012 'Best Blogger' Award? To me, no, it doesn't. It is a very fitting honor, just as the name Victor fits snuggly with his personality. From what I have seen, Cartel/Victor is a dedicated GM of the roleplay Jusenkyo Warriors, not only is Cartel a Group Roleplayer, but he loves Private roleplays as well.

    If you search through his blogs, you will notice that he has several different hobbies/ideas, concerns and dreams pertaining to multiple different things. Personally, I am very fond of elegantly written blogs, and Victor has never been one to disappoint me. Not matter what the topic is, I always find myself reading his blogs and learning more about issues that I never considered from an objective view point.

    From one RPA member to the other, I'd like to thank you for expanding the minds of not only myself but others with your blogs, your Vlogs by congratulating you with the Tribune's own Member of the Week.

    You're definitely earned it.

    Interview with the Neighborhood Phoenix

    Well, this week I was on duty for interviewing a member, and I thought to myself about who I could interview. I had a number of people who came to mind, including a few of the admins themselves! But finally I decided to interview one of the oldies of RPA and a good friend of mine. So without further ado, I bring to you the interview with
    Phoenix.

    Twi: So, how long have you been on RPA now? I know that you're a long time member, but tell us exactly how long you've been with the community
    Phoenix: Since the very beginning. I have been on rpa since it was first created. I believe I was the 36th member or so.
    Twi: Wow! That's a long time! So, what's kept you with the community and RPA?
    Phoenix: The people are great. The admin and mods are awesome. And I came from gaia... it was so different and so much better. I was tired of the constant rule breaking, god modding, and complete lack of respect from people. And so rpa gave me an escape. I found it to be a second home. And now I can't let it go. Yes I may leave for a while at times, but I always come back.
    Twi: That's great to hear. We love it when members stick around for a long time. So, what areas do you frequent most?
    Phoenix: Snything in downtown. Mostly the games. And then there is the new member area. Its fun welcoming new members. Aaaand I stalk the pic thread on a mission to rep all that I can for posting pics.
    Twi: Haha, so you're part of the welcoming committee? Good to hear that! So, what is it that you like best about RPA?
    Phoenix: The people. Everyone on rpa rocks. Everyone has their own thing they do and their own thing that makes them awesome.
    T wi: So, in a nut shell, it's the community itself. Is there any improvements you'd like to see in the future?
    Phoenix: Hmm. I dunno. Only that comes to mind right now is somethig that will never come back to rpa. C box. But honestly it would have to be heavily monitored. Need a mod or two just for the c box to keep everyone in line. Last one... yeah, we don't talk about that.
    Twi: Hm, I see. Well, I only have a couple more questions! You previously mentioned that the community is the best part of RPA for you. What about the community is it that you like?
    Phoenix: The people. Specifically everything they bring to the table. For example, I bring a vast knowledge and appreciation for music of all kinds. If I find more people like that then I find myself quickly wanting to talk to them. If its more about computers, ilk look to them with homework help. Etc. Everyone has something they excel at and they all seem glad to help.
    Twi: Well, that's definitely something! Only two more questions to go. How did you come up with your username? Was it something that seemed random, or was there a personal meaning to it?
    Phoenix: Very personal. I have a group of friends, we are more than friends. We are family. We all have call signs. Most of us are either in or want to be in the military. Mine so happens to be Phoenix.
    Twi: That's really cool! One last question. This one is a bit of a loaded question, but who's your favorite mod or admin on RPA?
    Phoenix: Hmmm. Tough. Probably merry. Just cause we used to chat all the time. She's amazing. One of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of talking to. And I know people that would literally give the shirt off of their back to a complete stranger. She's also funny as all hell and beautiful too.


    Well, there you have it folks! A little insight as to why Phoenix sticks around, and who his favorite admin is! It's no wonder why he's so popular with everyone here! Not only is he an absolute cutie with his curls, but he's a sweetie to boot! Until next time, that's all for now folks!





    From the Mouth of the Members.
    by G

    So this week, I ventured out amongst the masses to find out what you guys had to say - firstly on those little aspects of role-playing that just press all the wrong buttons (when you face-plant the keyboard in frustration) and second, on the different ways people go about creating the amazing, individual characters we see everyday on RPA!

    My biggest pet peeve is probably when people don't read my rules or posts properly. It results in unneeded confusion and continuity errors, and then I have to be the jerkwad to go correct them. When players read my posts and rules, we don't have to worry about that, and it makes me a happy GM One of my biggest pet peeves in role playing would be when there are others waiting for a post and you idly wonder where they might be. It may scare some players. When they are needed most, as I personally like to have them with me, they may forget about the role play altogether. They may have a lot to read or a little if the role play is short on players. When someone joins a Role Play, puts in a great character application, but then doesn't bother to pay attention to whats happening in the actual Role Play; or even worse, if they forget what the RP is about, and post with something crazy that doesn't even fit the world they are Role Playing it. That hasn't happened here (thank God), but it was a reoccurring thing that happened on other RPing sites I used to go to. My biggest pet peeve is when other players drop out or take long breaks without letting others know that they'll be gone.
    When creating a new character, I usually start by asking myself where I want to go with this character or what kind of character I want. I like to experiment with different character types and see what kind of end I would like them to have in the RP. Firstly, good? evil? still figuring it out? confused? misunderstood? Secondly, do I want the character to be mature? playful? curt? polite? sarcastic? I continue from there, filling in that skeleton to give my characters color and dynamics In order for me to make an adequate character, I might need to have my TV on, go on Danbooru (Pivix) or play an anime game to get my creative juices flowing first. I also read through the role play I wish participate multiple times. This is to ensure I know what I'm doing before choosing what kind of character(s) I wish to control. I usually begin at the shorter parts of my CS. This is to ensure that I get them done (usually before the history or abilities). Those that require me to go back to the thread or if it requires me to write a lot more, I save it for another day if I get tired (Like on a night). As you might have seen with the role plays I join, it may take me up to a week to get my character sheet as I have to have some detail into what I write. First thing I think about when creating a character, is... How do I want this guy/girl to be physically and mentally unique from every other character I've seen. For me, I visualize characters first. Most Role Players don't really want to play a ugly character, myself included, so personally I try to think of quirky ways to make them different. Maybe gross scar tissue across their face, a birthmark, fake leg, missing two fingers, or maybe they have stutter. From there I usually move on to who, and what I want the character to be. I tend to save their personality for last, keeping it fairly vague so I can flesh out my character through Role Playing. I let the 'flavor' of the story lead me. If it's a group RP then I pick someone to balance the game, and if it's 1x1 I usually try to play colorful, conflicting characters who can keep the plot going.

    THE LAUGHING STOCK

    by Imp


    Shall I piss away the day by playing Battlefield 3 or work on the Laughing Stock? Well, if I wish to keep my terrible position and be greedy while not letting any others at it, I guess I'll work on the latter.

    So, I'd like to make note that our previous Tribune edition managed to somehow garner comments. I tried to comprehend how it was such since the previous editions didn't earn any. You weirdos work in mysterious ways, I swear. But, thanks for the comments and keep them up as the Tribune staff look forward to seeing them.

    Like a paraplegic in a wheelchair, we should probably get things rolling with the Laughing Stock, eh?


    PRANKSTARZ

    And you thought I forgot? Ha!
    The only submissions we received were from Siksta and Nazgul on behalf of either a regular video of some inane things being done OR the now over-rated Gangnam Style.

    Nazgul's vid.
    I wonder if the girl at 2:42 is of age.

    Oh look! Comic-book Bane! Starting to wanna murder every supposed Batman 'fan' who has no knowledge of the Original Bane and only knows Nolan's rendition. Spanish accent and a better story all the way!

    Did you enjoy that?... are you done with those box of tissues sitting on your desk? Let's hope so. Just scroll down you pervert!

    LULZ WHUT?!

    Alright, this is really starting to kill me with having to venture RPA's many halls to find images and comments. Anyone who wants to submit me the links to 'funny' pics and posts on RPA, do so by PMing me at any time.


    Spoiler: We all knew it existed. 



    Spoiler: Carrying on 


    Spoiler: OH WOW! THE AWARDS! 


    =====================================
    WIPEOUT
    Who saw this coming?

    In the next issue of the Laughing Stock, prepare yourselves for the RPA version of Wipeout.
    How will this be done? Well I'll be needing at most sixteen characters for each Wipeout installment. Yes, I said CHARACTERS because each Wipeout will carry a different theme and you yourself will not be the one placed in the game.

    This coming theme will be Fantasy, so adorn your capes made of towels and outfits that you fashioned in your mother's basement. I'm looking for wizards(who will be powerless on the obstacle course), rogues, Elves, whatever you can construct from the Fantasy genre. Oh, only one character per member so don't send me five cause I'll only take one.

    Don't feel like joining it? See if I care, I'm in the midst of PMing other members atm. Good luck trying to ruin my plans.

    THE RPA OB****UARIES
    Get it? I complain a lot. =P

    What? No Spoilers? Alright, I'll make this quick. In the next edition, I'll be roundhouse kicking General Discussion threads and giving my opinions on the matter in hopes to finally put the thread to rest.

    Wait, let me rephrase that: I'll be comically giving my observation and opinion on some threads in the General Discussion so unanswered questions will be resolved and the thread can be recycled(in my mind 'cause it'll surely remain open) because it will have no purpose for remaining open.
    Get it? I'm like any satirical TV show who attempts to fill the gap on any political/economical issue even though in reality the issue will likely never be resolved.

    No worries, though. I'll be watching my language and killing everyone softly.

    The Skeptic Review
    by Nazgul

    So as another year comes to an end, most people will often reflect on all the good and bad things that have happened throughout the year. Me? I reminisce about all the times Anne fired me over the course of the year. Good times!

    It's also the time of the year when reviewers make up lists of their favourite movies and games that have come out throughout the course of the year. So I figured, hey, why not.

    So without further ado, or maybe even much ado, here's my list of the top five movies for 2012. And I would just like to remind everyone that these are totally my own opinion based on everything I have seen throughout the year and might differ from yours. Incidentally, I would love to hear what you would pick for the top five in the comments below. And now we no that it was in fact much ado, and it was about nothing.

    5) Men In Black 3 – Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones hit gold in a sequel that was far better than the one that came before it. Their chemistry as J and K is of course amazing and is even outdone at times by Josh Brolin who plays a younger K in this story of aliens and time travel.

    4) The Hunger Games – Having never read the book(s), I had no expectations for this movie and was pleasantly surprised when I was presented with a very deep and engaging story. The setting and character portrayals in this movie were all stunning and I loved every minute of it, despite the overuse of the shaky cam so they could keep a PG13 rating on it.

    3) The Cabin In The Woods – Joss Whedon writes a brilliant script and presents a horror movie with all the trimmings, and then turns everything upside down. This movie engaged me the moment it started, mostly due to having no clue what was going on at first, and kept em engaged all the way through.

    2) The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – This was hard to not pick for my number one as I'm sure you all know, I am a big Tolkien geek. Martin Freeman does a stellar job as the titular hobbit Bilbo Baggins. Peter Jackson does an amazing job of bringing this work to the screen and I loved it despite the changes from the book. And before anyone asks, I saw it in 2D and it looked amazing.

    1) The Avengers – And Joss Whedon does it again by making a movie with an ensemble cast and big name characters and yet still manages to make them all work together and make the movie about all of them instead of just one or two. All the actors do an amazing job and you can tell that they are having a blast working together as the Avengers take on Loki and his Chitauri minions. It's a big movie with a big budget and big effects that sets the bar as high as it can go for all super hero movies to come. Hell, Marvel Studios did such a good job, I can even forgive them for wrecking Ghost Rider and even making Elektra. 'Nuff said.

    So there ya go. Those are my faves from the past year. I wish you all the best for 2013 and I'll see you next issue when I'll do my worst 5 movies of 2012.

    Spoiler: Questions & Answers 





    What To Do When RPA Is Unavailable.
    by TheTeeJaii

    Occasionally, RPA Goes down for Maintenance, or due to technical difficulties on either end.
    This is usually only for an hour, maybe more, but this can cause widespread panic among avid Role-Players, so Here are some ideas to keep you occupied on the rare occasions when RPA isn't functioning!

    1. Keep Calm
    Always remain calm in a crisis! If you see RPA Is down, take a few deep breaths, and remember that things always get better, and you WILL get through this.

    2. Try something active!
    yes, If RPA is down, why not engage in physical activity? popular examples involve chasing after Storm's Squirrels to ensure they're working or, in extreme cases, You may wish to engage in actual exercise.

    3. Being active not your style? Try Creativity!
    believe it or not, you can still write! Try doodling images or pictures, plot revenge upon your old Geography teacher, even create new role-play ideas! you could try writing poetry dedicated to Nazgul's Thong if you wanted!

    4.Why not try cooking?
    Yes! You could try cooking things! Why not try baking a cake in order to pass the time, make chocolates to show appreciation for RPA, or even bake a sibling or two to keep them quiet!*

    ((*Baking siblings is, in fact, illegal and not fully recommended.))

    5.Role-Play in real life!
    This is advised for the brave of heart. What you need is to open your imagination, and use whatever you can to become your new life. Use your Grandpa's walking stick as a light-sabre (Provided he's sleeping, and wont notice) or perhaps you could wear the curtains and be a superhero? Or, My personal favorite, place a pet of your choice on your head, and become a "hybrid" Creature.
    The possibilities are endless!!

    Okay, so I hope you are all prepared for any reason you cannot access RPA, and that you will be able to enjoy your time without it. Remember, though, that RPA will always be back, and willing to embrace you with open arms!

    You know, in a lot of newspapers people write letters to the editor, wouldn't that be cool to see? *over exaggerated winking and nudging to the members*
