Welcome to the Land of Monsters!

Arimoi is now open! If you've apped in, welcome to an RP group all about people turning into monsters; brace your characters, get to know the characters and players you'll be playing with, and start dreaming up changes and plots you'd like to play.

If you haven't apped in, don't be shy; toss a character our way!

I'll put an introductory mingle up soonish; it'll feature a group summoning by the Joyous Order, and give characters a chance to meet and bond over a daring escape. From that point on, it's your game. Make open posts dressing-room-style, come up with events or mingles, post memes, solicit PSLs; whatever strikes your fancy.

For now, this is an OOC mingle, where you can say hi, discuss monster designs/changes/plans, pitch ideas for things you want to do in the setting and find co-conspirators to arrange plots with, etc. This post will stay open...forever, technically, but I'm going to try to post a new one of these every month or so, to give new characters some time at the top of the comments and keep the ideas wheel turning. This is an informal kind of thing; treat it like a low-pressure monster chat room.

ALSO: we now have a modplurk at [plurk.com profile] arimoi, which I will be using for announcement-type stuff in the future instead of my personal plurk. In addition to announcing modly OOC stuff, you can also ping it or ping/message me to have it replurk or natively plurk Arimoi-related things, like OOC/meme/mingle posts on this comm, Plurk memes or discussions that would benefit from being seen by everyone, or even things like monster art commissions.

HELLO GUYS it's weird to be the literal first into a new game/box/thing but wow here we are I guess-

So I've brought in Reira as 'slightly AU due to headcanon'; specifically they are a girl, reasoning is the first thing on her app in fact, so we'll leave it all at that since that's Basically It. They go by 'she', the end-

MORE IMPORTANT, Reira's not coming in alone, she sort of just finished sealing the SUPREME DRAGON KING 'ZARC' in her soul. She was supposed to reincarnate from there. Instead she's here with you lot, and Zarc being a single being still, is a little more eagerly chatty than he was when he was cut in four so that sucks.

She's coming in with her duel disk too, so that's a thing. BUT ANYWAY enough about me let's plot I've been rubbing my hands waiting for this for a WHILE~

SUP GUYS the IC intro is on its way, gotta run to work first.

This is Hallelujah, he's a nice kid with self-esteem issues, all the important stuff to know is on his journal; he'll be turning from a half-human-half-demon into a nymph, which...I have yet to make any decisions about the design of, so I guess I'll be playing that by ear?? He's accompanied by Chironnupu, a dear friend who is summoned by way of cell phone and is very cute and soft and makes weird fox noises to protect friends from getting hurt.

I have no real plans for what I want to play out long-term, except that nymph territoriality might mix in an interesting way with Hallelujah's lack of self-worth and idolization of a yakuza boss toughguy. I know in the short-term I'd like Hal to cohabitate with or just stick closely to at least one other monster, for ease of CR/threading and because latching onto someone is IC for him. No plans for blood magic just yet, would rather focus on the transformation process and the being-a-monster-in-a-human-society problems first.

Kururu

[personal profile] corruptedcoil 2017-02-27 04:17 am (UTC)(link)
Hey losers it's Kururu. Queen of AUs and Ivalice, but also an Eorzea nerd. I decided to keep it simple with Alisaie here - well, AU!Alisaie who ended up in a Bad Timeline. (AKA my Roleswap Fic. Spoilers for that since it's not up to that, but whatever. Her and her brothers' roles never really swapped, since they were born together. And yes, this means that in this fic, Urianger is an Ascian. And still had his role swapped.)

Anyway she took on the soul of the Dreadwyrm Bahamut due to her brother being a dumbass and needing a way to quickly deal with it so angry Ala Mhigans couldn't abuse that power. And then sealed herself away so nobody would summon her. A Bad Choice because look who's been summoned again and is gonna be a Celestial because one of her biggest fears is tempering people and being worshipped. I guess a God has been summoned, and she is Pissed Off.

IDK I might bring some more Eorzeans (who wants Dragon!Haurchefant), Ivalicians or maybe even some losers from my Nuzlocke universe. (It's a FF Crossover And Also Fankids.)

UPDATE

[personal profile] n_octis 2017-02-28 12:45 pm (UTC)(link)
This is also me. A Noctis who began as a pun, N-octis of Team Plasma, and is now a very cute boy.

And gonna become a Sphinx because even the RNG loves irony. In the comic, he's... becoming a Zoroark slowly after his Dream World Bullshit. He also has a fluffbird Togekiss with him.

Ahhh, it's wonderful to run into you again, Kururu (assuming I'm not mixing you up with another Ivalice-loving Kururu)! I'm on a different Plurk and use a different handle than I did when we last RP'ed together, but I was Blue of Lammy when we first did!

I hope you've been doing well!

[personal profile] corruptedcoil 2017-03-03 01:35 pm (UTC)(link)
HOLY SHIT BLUE

I STILL THINK ABOUT YOU SOMETIMES AND YES I AM DOING WELL THANK YOU VERY MUCH

Can I just flop and be happy? Today's been a day of meeting old friends and making up with others. :3 Also I am Undertale trash quite a bit as well.
mettatronic: (MY MY YOU DON'T SAY!)

[personal profile] mettatronic 2017-03-03 09:25 pm (UTC)(link)
HA HA, LIKEWISE, HONESTLY, AND WONDERFUL TO HEAR IT, OLD FRIEND!

I'm all the happier if you're happy and mmmman it'll be nice getting to play with you again! As for Undertale trash, ha ha, how many are left who aren't one of us, at least to some extent, and I hope you find my Mettaton's adequately up to snuff, then!

Hello party people! I don't think I know anyone here personally yet, but I'm bringing y'all Prompto Argentum from Final Fantasy XV. He's a chatty, whiny, good-hearted guy who just wants to help his friends restore light to the world and so on and so forth--so of course he'll be turning into a shadow Elemental, because reasons.

I'm bringing him in from a patch of rough time, so he won't be quite up to his usual sunny, bouncy self right away, but he'll be doing his best to keep everyone's spirits up while missing his friends terribly on the inside. That said, if anyone plays FFXV characters or knows people who do, please. Ask them not to leave Prompto unattended. This is going to be a disaster.

C'mere, fellow insecure young man! Let Prompto tell you about aggressively changing your entire personality to make friends! LET HIM BE FRIENDS WITH YOUR FUZZY BUDDY.

oh god

But yeah reading that app was an exercise in sudden, vicious endearment, and I was thinking that these two are similar to the point that I'm not sure what would actually happen when they interact, they'll either get along great or slide off of each other like same-pole magnets.

time to find out

as another prompto rper out there i am so happy to see sunshine boy fucked up >3 in that special paticular way.

im considering my au!noctis tho. he's the king of team plasma.

[personal profile] photoshooter 2017-02-27 05:14 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh god that would be an amazing mess, given how badly Prompto's "plz to tell me I'm the real me" feelings are going to get as he turns into basically a freaking shade, without having had that moment of reconciliation in canon

That said, please, he needs his friends

Gale

[personal profile] planetary_bonds 2017-03-01 12:43 pm (UTC)(link)
psst hello i am Gale and I'm reviving an old muse, Yuusei Fudo from Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's i.e. that one series with the card games on motorcycles. Here's hoping a canon review and dragging him in from a more dynamic canonpoint (in terms of character growth, anyway) gives him a new lease on life.

anyways im here because i like the concept of this lil monsterbox and also if u didnt expect me to laugh at the idea of serious stoic yuusei being a sparkly horsederg you don't know me yet.

Here's to having fun together!

Hey, guys, and awesome to meet anyone here I don't already know (and to have a chance to play 'ere with the couple that I do)!

My name's Inigo, and I'll be here (at least to start with) playing showman extraordinaire Mettaton from Undertale as Undead, debuting him ICly once I get off of work today.

In the meantime, feel free to add me over on Plurk at [plurk.com profile] schmendricks or shoot me a PM.

Thanks for your time, and I look forward to playing with you fellow monster fans!

HEY DUDE I'm Holo, player of Hallelujah and resident mod critter, welcome to Arimoi and if you have any questions or concerns hmu!

This was a delightful app to see, Mettaton is probably what no member of this cast is expecting and exactly what they need.
mettatronic: (Ooh?)

[personal profile] mettatronic 2017-03-03 09:31 pm (UTC)(link)
EVERYONE NEEDS METTATON. There is a need in all people that, dahling, be it by coincidence or design, only Mettaton can fill.

And ahh-ha, glad to see I made a good pick of character to throw into the fray and I hope you find 'I'm appropriately entertaining on all levels, then!

Of course and thanks for the invitation to do so (and for having me!), and it's swell to meet you, Holo!
