    I hope you give me a chance to do this. I really want this to work one day.

    Before I get started, I want to get a few things out of the way.

    “Pretty Cure” (or Precure, for short) is the main term used in the Pretty Cure franchise used to describe a group of magical girls described as “Legendary Warriors”. In the first season, the term was used as the main title, but since then, it has been included as the title of each subsequent season, each having their own variation based on its own theme. In each season, there is a legend of warrior maidens who will come to aid the world when it is in need, and stop an invasion of darkness. Thus, small mascot creatures from alternate worlds in need are often given the task of searching out chosen girls to take up the role Pretty Cure. Although the original concept of the show was of two girls who could not transform or use any attacks without being together, this concept has faded and recent seasons are now more diverse in ways of plot, transformations, and attacks.

    The term Pretty Cure (or Precure; they are interchangeable) can refer to either one girl or the entire group, and can be either singular or plural. Calling a group of magical girls “Pretty Cures” would be like calling a group of Pokémon “Pokémons”. However, when you use the word “Cure” to refer to a Pretty Cure, it is correct to call a group of Pretty Cure “Cures”.

    Oh yeah, and I would like to point out that series is known for its large amount of physical fighting. It is worth noting that the director of the first Pretty Cure series was Daisuke Nishio, whose also helped direct Dragonball Z. This shows very prominently. The fight scenes in the series are generally pretty awesome. It is a lot like Power Rangers, only instead of getting into a giant robot to fight giant monsters, the Cures would just jump up really high and punch it before using some unnecessarily flashy magical finishing move.

    Also, I would like to point out that most of their “In the Name of the Moon” speeches are entirely involuntary. This sometimes leads to the moment after the Cures say their heroic introductions, and then do an honest-to-God double take and say “what the hell just came out of my mouth?”



    This thread is a part of starting the very first Pretty Cure roleplay. It runs on no system; below are the rules. If you vote, then that means I will consider you a possible player. Voting is complete now. If you want to join, just ask nicely ;)



    1) Please try to post on the appropriate forum for your topic. This means that anything more graphic than what a T rating would allow is off the limits. Try not to swear too much either. Remember that we are Pretty Cures, so we should act like Pretty Cures.

    2) Please be civil towards other forum members. No bullying, badmouthing, etc.

    3) Please be a good roleplayer. You control your character, some of the immediate environment, and nothing else. No controlling other player's characters and no controlling my NPC. For example, if you say your character is "pretty" or "cute", that could be considered god-modding because you are forcing other characters to think of that character that way. Instead, try to describe traits that are commonly cute and people will do the rest. For example Urara/Cure Lemonade is cute because of her long, curly pigtails, bright smile, and friendly ditziness, not because the narrator says she is.

    5) Please, don't come here just to link any of your stories/forums/whatever. It's okay to do it once or twice, but don't be "DUDES GO TO MY FORUM IS AWESOME" or anything. Links are allowed, but you have to write all of your OOC stuff in a spoiler when you are on the in-character forum.

    6) Please try your best to use proper grammar and spelling. We can understand if you're dyslexic or something, tell us beforehand so we aren't getting on your back about it. For the rest of you guys, a simple spell check can go a long way, and while nobody is perfect, clicking the “Preview” button can make a world of difference.

    7) For those that are AFK… In this Roleplaying experience, if you are away for more than a week, we will continue with your character being on autopilot.

    8) Remember we are here for fun! Keep it fun for others.



    Now that that's out of the way, I really wanted to make sure that what I create is pleasing to everyone, which is why I came up with this to see what my audience wants out of their Pretty Cure experience. So… here we go!


    Ages (Vote for one age group)

    [] Sailor Fukus

    Very nice you are joining, Ursa, but you did not follow the instructions for the voting.

    You vote for one age group, five different motifs, three different outfits, and one mission.

    Edit: Added an example of an acceptable voting submission.

    Pretty Cure is practically tokusatsu in anime form. It airs new episodes Sunday mornings along with Kamen Rider and Super Sentai.

    Precure is known around the web for their reputation of being hands-on when attacking baddies.

    They only primarily uses weapon at mid/late series, which is about the same time Kamen Rider do, I think.

    *pokes Blight Gecko*

    Is this an RP with a character per player (it looks like it at least)? In that case you might want to ask a mod to have the thread moved to the PbP subforum.

    This subforum is more for quests. That is, several people votes to control a single character. On the other hand, now that I look on the descriptions more closely it could be in either place. Hm, PbP has this description "For roleplaying games using defined systems. System-less quests go in the Quest section."

    So don't mind me~

    Making mistakes and being wrong is part and parcel of what makes a Nekraa -.-

    This is system less. Also, it says Questing and Roleplaying on the main page, so I assumed they were all on the same thread.

    Me too! I hope this spreads the popularity of Pretty Cure fanseries and RP on sites like Spacebattles and Sufficient Velocity.

    I am working on making the idea so far. I would like to point out that the three of you each selected a different age group, so we might need one more person to be the tiebreaker. Does a team of four or five sound good?

    For the moment, I am trying to work on my character instructions.

    Ha, yeah I noticed when I was making the vote that we all had different age groups.

    Four to five players sounds like a manageable number, but ultimately that's your decision I suppose.

    Ah, I see. I actually think that's pretty funny.





    Alright, so we have my votes tallied up. I think I have an idea of what to do, now that we have our tiebreaker.

    Hey guys, here is the result

    Ages (Vote for one age group)

    [] Grade School (Ages 8-12)
    Kerfirou

    [] Middle School (Ages 12-15)
    UrsaTempest
    Zaranoth

    [] High School (Ages 15-18)
    TurtleDucks

    Looks like Middle School girls will be the norm. That means that if you want your character to be in a different age group, you will have to write an explanation for it in the background and ask for my permission before hand. Just keep in mind, I was doing this solely so that all the girls could go to the same school; you know, for convenience.

    Motifs (Vote for five different motifs)

    [] Animal

    [] Candy

    [] Celestial
    TurtleDucks
    Zaranoth

    [] Cyber
    UrsaTempest
    Kerfirou
    TurtleDucks

    [] Dinosaur
    Kerfirou

    [] Elemental
    Kerfirou

    UrsaTempest
    TurtleDucks
    Zaranoth

    [] Nature
    UrsaTempest
    Kerfirou

    [] Rainbow
    Zaranoth

    As it turns out, we will be having Musical Elemental Cyber Magical Girls. Fun times! I will have to get right on designing that.

    Costumes (Vote for three different costumes)

    [] Athletic Outfits
    Zaranoth

    [] Business Suits
    UrsaTempest
    Kerfirou

    [] Cheerleader Outfits

    [] Clergy Robes

    [] Dancer Costumes
    TurtleDucks
    Zaranoth

    [] Fancy Dresses
    UrsaTempest
    TurtleDucks
    Zaranoth

    [] Military Uniforms
    Kerfirou

    [] Ninjas
    UrsaTempest
    Kerfirou

    [] Sailor Fukus

    This was easy: Fancy Dresses wins! Sorry, Kerifirou

    Mission (Vote for one mission)

    [] Defeat the Monsters
    Kerfirou
    Zaranoth

    [] Find Magical Collectables

    [] Protect a Person
    UrsaTempest
    TurtleDucks

    [] Save a Magical Kingdom

    Hmmm... interesting results for a tie. It seems like our heroines' mission will involve both protecting a helpless NPC and defeating as many monsters as possible.

    I may have an idea for the going to different schools thing. What if all of the girls were a part of the same school district/academic institution, which has an elementary, middle, and high school all on the same campus? At the very least that's how the school district I grew up in was arranged.

    I just woke up, so I am glad you guys are talking right now.

    Well, having an elevator school does not seem so bad.

    As of right now, I am working on who the villains are. It is the hardest part, as the villains in the Pretty Cure series can be good or bad, depending on the season. For instance, the majority of villains from the original Futari wa Pretty Cure series were rather bland, but the villains from Fresh Precure were rather three dimensional, to the point where you could make the claim that they were not villains but soldier doing their job. Then we have Splash Star's villains which were very colorful and quirky, and evil in a petty and entertaining way: not only would they the Cures at random, but they would go out their way to make their personal lives a living hell just for the lulz.

    Edit: I just looked on the web. It is called an "escalator school", not an elevator school.
