Ok this is a thread for the purpose of discussing role playing game ideas and gauging interest in my case I have an idea, a post grail war game where the player characters are sent in by the clock tower to stop a calamity from spreading

Hmm, what do you mean by this? I mean, Clock Tower Enforcers are not usually the nicest people, particularly by my standards....

She's not evil, but she still happily kills people (including Shirou if she defeats him in the Grail War).

point is the character's disposition is up to the player not the job

Well, OK, that's mainly what I was asking.

Also, if they're trying to stop a calamity from spreading, does that imply the canon characters are dead...?

I see....

It does somewhat affect my interest in playing, though, I'm more interested in the RP if the canon characters (Sakura especially) are around.

Well, I dunno, then. Without knowing if the canon characters will or will not be around, I'm not sure if I'm going to be interested enough to participate....

Yeah, but you could just as easily post "I'm running an RP, I'm not going to explain what it's about, just sign-up and see"....

The problem with your design is that I may well find myself joining it and then come to realise that I don't like it, the result of which will be me losing interest and stopping putting effort into it. Which is very definitely not good for an RP.

that's always a risk in gaming. I can't do anything about that.

Well, fine....

Then, honestly, there's not enough information to be sure if I'm interested. I'll join if I'm not busy doing anything else, but I can't promise I won't walk away from it if it turns out not to be interesting to me.
