I propose that we instate something similar here, where the vastly powerful beings cannot always apply their full power, because the constraints of the world binds them to a certain degree. In other words, they're too powerful for the world they live in. Not only would this allow characters that have good reason to be powerful to remain so, it ensures that powerful characters can't just snap their fingers and do whatever they want.

The fact that I ~had~ to have Marisa lose an arm just to go outside the barrier is kind of ridiculous, as is the fact that the only way Outside World RP is interesting is if your character is on the top end of the power scale so that they're actually relevant. To that end, it forces the Outside World to also be a breeding ground for far-too-powerful characters that, if introduced to the Gensoukyou setting, would only be able to wreak massive havoc or cause fuckhuge changes that the Touhou setting doesn't need.

I mean, yeah, I don't mind playing powerful characters like Blaster Master Marisa and such, but there's no love these days for people like Kogasa who aren't going to make a big splash in the RP, but are fun to do small-time shit with.

Shit like the RP with Marisa's Arm that can be solved with just one other fucking magician doing magic bullshit shouldn't need a rework of the entire gameworld to find a fucking solution for.

Okay, I'm sorry I worded it wrongly, let me put it in more flowery terms.Touhou as part of EoP's setting was never actually turned into an RP setting
More importantly, though, fuck you. I come on every fucking day looking for an RP, and nobody even responds to me, much less says why they don't want to. I always get a sideways answer. Nobody even gives a shit about what I have to say the vast majority of the time anyway, why would you bother telling me about problems about the RP? I'm just the fuckwit who's sat around EoP for two years without getting taken seriously, without ever being included in the admin circlejerk, so why should my opinion or thoughts matter? Why should I need to know about the problem? Why should anyone give a shit about me?And Neko (and I'm sorry if this is going to sound harsh) but did it ever occur to you, during those two months of idling, to maybe probe at this and ask people why they didn't feel like RPing? To perhaps make some attempt to look into the problem and maybe get people to work towards a solution sooner? It's a perfectly fair thing to say that we've all fucked up by waiting as long as we have, but you're right here in the boat with us, and I don't see you holding a bucket, so I suppose we'll all get to drown as a team.
