As the title suggests - Post anything related to TF2 roleplay that doesn't deserve its own thread and doesn't fit anywhere else. Funny stories, logs, what have you. Just keep it nice and civil!
Is it me, or is the thread not bumping already?
Yeah, it's not just you. It's been not bumping for a few days now.
Okay, Imma post a new corkboard. Old one stopped bumping a while ago, so it's about time, eh?
Oh, look. A TF2 MSN roleplay group. Yeah, that's right. Most of this is just going to be copy-pasta from the main board, elsewhere. If you have questions or require clarification on something, feel free to ask me!
It would really help to have MSN Messenger Plus, so you can sign into multiple accounts at once. Having the game would be cool, too. One of my fellow admins wants to dabble in ingame roleplay, and I was thinking we could hold battles over the game rather than over text. Now, without further rambling, here is the copy-pasta. Sorry if it's messy, it was formatted and I am too lazy to unformat it.

We now have a RED Sniper, a BLU Soldier and BLU Scout's mother.
Still needing BLU Demo, BLU Engie, RED Soldier and all of the other 'others'.
We have acquired a RED Solly, a BLU Engie and a Ms Pauling.
Still needing a BLU Demo and the other 'others'.
We now have a BLU Demo, Ms Pauling and a CBS. We might have a Saxton Hale and a Tentaspy.
However, we now need a BLU Engineer, Announcer, Redmond Mann, Blutarch Mann...
I have this posted somewhere else on the chan, but I really would like some advice on an OC:
His name is Tristan Springfield, BLU Sniper, comes from Perth, Australia. He was raised with the White Australia belief, joined the Australian Army, but after he was abducted by Taliban fighters in Afghanistan (my timeline takes place in early 2000s), converted to their form of Islam and culture. Just wondering if the set up checks out.
tl;dr: Australian Taliban with White Supremacist background-too contradictory.
We needed a thread in the new forum, mates. Leave here you doodles, announces and random stuff. Cheers!
needs more blood and love
I propose more love
bumpin our thread with some old tegaki drawing
I saw a post similar to this, but only dealing with OP's character, so here's mine.
The BLU Sniper in my fanfic I'm working on is one of the main antagonists, but I'm running into a mess.
First off, his name's Tristan Springfield and he hails from Perth, Western Australia. He joined the Australian Army and was sent to Afghanistan for a humanitarian mission. He ends up being kidnapped by the Taliban, brainwashed and converts to their brand of Islam. Tristan eventually gets rescued, but the damage is done.
But then I run into the problem: when he was younger, he was raised with the "White Australia" belief...which factors in because my RED Sniper is part-Aborigine.
Is this conflicting or not because I want him to be a total arrogant rat-bastard who shows no emotion when confronted by death/killing people.
Any advice welcome.
Only part that threw me was the Taliban. Considering the game takes place in 1967, it's hard to tell when some people are either putting their characters in a modern setting instead, or if they just don't know that something didn't happen in 1967.
I don't know what the case is here, but if it's modern-day, or at least takes place in a different time than the game, you might just wanna let people know ahead of time. Otherwise you might get comments like 'OMG UR a moron! Da Taliban didn't come around till the 90's, DUHHH', and so forth. Not necessarily the comments you'd get from here, but still.
yes, very big edit, I failed to mention that my timeline happens early-2000s...about the time the Afganistan/Iraq wars happened. The RED/BLU battle is still continuing, with people getting replaced after their contracts are up or they die in a non-respawning zone.
Thanks, for pointing that out, Iz. I wrote that at like 3 am
I apologize in advanced if this isn't the right place to post this, but I'm actually looking for people to join a role-play forum/msn group. The two are tied together, so you need to be able to get on both. If you're interested, check out www.alternativeteamwork.forumotion.com
I have done forum rp's like this in the past. They became confusing, convoluted, and completely unbalanced. Once we actually get more of the 18, then we may start opening it up to duplicates. If we have a total of 8 characters, and 4 of them are Scouts.... Yeah, that could be a bit out of hand, especially when we NEED other classes.
Understandable. Are the Spies free? It's easy to just age up the twins into Spies. If not I'll see about getting my Pyro up and work something out with Checkmate later.
Sorry, both spies are taken/reserved. Pyros would be sweet.
this is my OC
I didn't see a thread for OC help anywhere, so I hope if it's OK if I make one.
In Meet the Sniper, the Sniper mentions "blokes bludgeoning their wives to death with golf trophies": I thought that he would get along well with this type of character. I'm thinking that she married a guy with anger issues and/or drinking problems and he almost bludgeoned her to death or she died but was revived. Either way, she might have amnesia and maybe be sexist. What would she do about the wedding ring, though? Would she keep it on to keep men from flirting with her if they're interested? Or would she remove it to try to forget her husband (assuming she didn't forget/get amnesia)? I don't think she would divorce him, she would probably just run away from him.
When an event like abuse happens, there're usually psychological consequences, right? What would hers be?
I'm thinking that she'll end up being a Spy and she'll either be an ass or extremely shy around men.
(Not sure if the file I attached is really related; it's from Meet the Sniper and I had to attach something.)
Should she be psychotic all the time, then?
I didn't mean for her to be "pitiable"; I wasn't sure how else she would get the head trauma.
Okay, man. I didn't want to say this, but... You're probably just going to have to start from scratch with this one. From the domestic abuse, to the head trauma, to the amnesia, to her relations with RED and BLU and why she even decided to become a merc in the first place... It just sounds like you're way over your head with this.
The more we talk, the more it seems like this character is making a nosedive into full-fledged Mary Sue-dom. Once you start referring to anime as one of your sources of inspiration, you know you've got a problem.
I'm really sorry and I wish I didn't have to say this, but it really is for the best. Maybe try to start over with a simpler topic, find out how to make realistic characters and such, then tackle this later.
Okay, I sure as hell hope this is the proper place for this thread. Being an avid RPer myself, I want to share with you some of the resources I use to develop and name my OCs. Feel free to add your own!
- This is an extremely in depth character profile that asks you loads of questions that could help you develop your character. It asks questions that you may not have thought of yourself:
- This is a list of useful questionnaires that can also help in character development. Failing that, if you don't feel like developing your stinkin' character, do some of the fun writing memes:
- This is partly for fun, but partly serious. I actually do run my characters through Mary Sue tests to make sure I'm not going nuts. Try it if you're bored or concerned:

The other questionnaire link is fucked, please ignore. Here's the updated link:
It says it's also broken.
Oh, I think this board has a filter for LJ addresses that turns them into "bitchapalooza." Fffuuu.
Just take the space outta there if it actually posts properly.
This picture can also be found here on my dA: http://fav.me/d4242za. If you have any questions and concerns regarding permission to post this here, please to shoot me a note and I'll gladly verify!
This was a spray on I made for my brother depicting his friend and him in their usual TF2 shenanigans. I got a bit... carried away with it. It was unfortunate that the picture quality went down the drain upon posting it in-game.
Since the characters aren't canon, I shared it here in the RPG thread. I'm new to TF2chan, so I'm not sure if I posted this in the correct place. Let me know if I need to move it elsewhere!
