    Sometimes you just want to get away from that daily grind of capturing islands, plundering endless supplies of booty and deciding what NPC you want to heartlessly murder next in your quest for that perfect devil fruit for your besty. Welcome to Story Missions!

    Put simply, a Story Mission is any pre-planned quest that you set your character or team of characters upon with the goal of crafting a well-written storyline that you feel may become a good read. This is in contrast to the normal Island Struggle Missions where your goal is to conquer an island by any means necessary and hold it in player versus player death matches for monetary gain. Rules for Story Missions are:

    1) Story Missions must be planned ahead of time and submitted for approval to this thread according to the available template. You don't need to wait for approval before beginning the thread, but keep in mind that an unapproved thread isn't viable for Story Mission rewards. Once completed, post the completed Story Mission with a link to the thread in this area.

    2) A Story Mission doesn't necessarily require combat to be involved, but there should at least be an identifiable obstacle to overcome with some difficulty and a conclusion of satisfying quality. Two characters sitting down and becoming acquainted with a picnic on the lawn and then departing is not good enough to become a Story Mission unless you add some really good conflict either between the two or between the two and someone else.

    3) NPCs aren't necessary, but are likely recommended to craft a good, long story. Canon One Piece characters are available to be used as you please in your Story Mission so long as they're still alive, but may only be killed during the course of it if approved by a GM beforehand. If a canon NPC is stationed on an island they may be reserved for the story mission unless a request has already been made for that NPC to be played by someone for an ensuing Island Struggle.

    4) NPCs in your Story Mission can be played by literally anyone of your choosing, including yourself. If someone not taking part in the story as a PC chooses to NPC a Story Mission they will be graded and receive rewards for their character just as if they were playing normally in the Story Mission.

    5) Special Story Missions may be announced from time to time with additional rewards aside from the usual experience and beri bounty! These missions will be specially run and NPCed by one of the GMs and may even award rare and coveted devil fruits at completion!

    6) Rewards will be based entirely on the quality of an individual's posts in the finished mission and will be awarded separately to each character. The more well-written and entertaining your posts are the better your reward will be in turn. Sure, since you're creating and running your own enemy NPCs you could make them really easy to defeat and complete your mission in a snap, but your rewards will be awful due to your lack of any real effort. Make it good. Attempts to abuse this system by making several small and insignificant missions in quick succession will be punished with minimal or even zero rewards.

    Rewards are as follows:
    Rating Performance: 1-1,000 experience and 1,000,000-10,000,000 beri
    Number of Posts: 1 for every post (each character has a separate count)
    Multiply both.
    In a solo thread, a post will be counted as every 15 lines (not including paragraph spaces).

    Story Mission Submission Template:
    Code:
    [b]Mission Location:[/b] Location where the Story Mission will take place
    [b]Participants:[/b] Who will be playing and earning rewards for this mission
    [b]Overview:[/b] A brief synopsis of what will happen in the Story Mission. You don't need to be too detailed here.

    Mission Location: Las Camp in West Blue. More specifically it'll be on the sea, but it'll be posted in Las Camp regardless.
    Participants: @Problematic @godfish @Marz @Freeray @Miserum
    Overview: It doesn't take the marines of the 159th long to find trouble upon departing for their first ever patrol. Along the way they discover a merchant vessel sinking and newly devoid of cargo, claiming that a Sea King attacked their ship. This clearly warrants some thorough investigation into the matter.

    Considering I run this section, I obviously approve of this mission and rewards will be granted upon completion.

    Mission Location: Long Ring Long Land
    Participants: All of the "Everything Pirate's) @Portgas D. Xatch, @joby ,@Cpt. , @Chris Mic ,@Smileyman ,@Don Smitheroni
    Overview: Its "Game Night" on the Free and Easy (every weekend the crew rotates who hosts, and what games will be played) This week's host was supposed to be Lepi, but Lepi is nowhere to be found on the ship! After searching his quarters for clues about the disappearance, a single deck of cards, and a note written on the back of a circus flier is found. The note reads..

    Lepi's note: Since I didn't have any money, I sold myself too the circus in order to buy cards for this week's game night. Have fun, sorry my journey with you guys was so short. -"Very" Lepi

    Turning the note over to reveal the flier...

    Circus Flier: Attention! Attention! Attention! Citizens of the East Blue, come one come all too WORLD NOBEL SLAVE CIRCUS!!!
    for three days only in the East Blue then it goes too another Blue, don't miss your chance too see exotic creatures from all over the world!

    *notice this is a WORLD NOBEL event any transgressions will get the attention of an admiral*

    Everything's 11(play on ocean's 11)
    The remaining Everything Pirate's would NEVER let a nakama sell themselves into slavery! But this being a world Nobel circus, pirates woukd certainly not be welcome. So it's up too the crew too perform the perfect heist and getaway, without attracting the attention of an Admiral!

    Is this a flashback? ...Cuz it sounds like a flashback. You can feel free to do it, but it won't be eligible for exp. I feel like this would be more applicable if it was happening in a canon thread where Jade runs into her former comrades for reasons and reminisces on this happening in the past while something else happens in the present that perhaps dredges those old memories up and forces them to work together again. Entirely your call.
    This looks good. I'm actually interested in reading how this all plays out. ^^

    The only things disallowed for exp gains are flashbacks and dreams. The past wouldn't need stats so much since you're just remembering things that already happened, nor would it require double turns. You can run it pretty loosely and I won't deduct points for it. I'm thinking more of a scenario like 'Hey, remember when such and such did that thing?' And then everyone remembers it for a moment before getting back to the matter at hand. I'm honestly totally cool with filling the thing with flashbacks so long as there's also a real problem at hand to be solved as well.

    I feel like the giant will be your downfall in a stealth operation. =P You can either post it on another island and just say it's actually happening at LRLL or you can have someone actually create the island like a boss in the battleground section using the standard island template and submit it to Larsi to be added as an RP island where you guys would then post for realsies. Your call.

    Those names though. XD Is Trade Central Island a canon island? It would need to be to post on it. Make it so. Also do you actually plan to do this with other people? You can't do a story mission at the same time as another canon thread so this could throw off your fellow CP agents. If you want to recruit people you should add them to the list before I okay this.

    I am thinking of canon storyboard should be part of RP as well. I can understand players are given freedom to choose their own storyboard.

    Ya i think i am fine with this as well i have no complains on it.

    Isnt he GM ? Ya i know that one.

    So my query was something like this if cp0 is particularly investing an island it usually has a leader who sends an order this usually involve member of senior and a junior who decides to join the island.

    Usually i rped we used to get clan based mission as a part of the team.

    Its a question if there is team based mission usually the mission either pass or fail depending upon various factors like losing a battle or investigation failing.

    Just my queries ? I am perfectly fine with custom ones it helps to broden the rpers .

    You'd have to draw up all the specifics yourself.
