The Roleplay

This is the reason everyone is there, well, mostly. Most of the time, it is how the characters speak to eachother and have stories played out. Many people put some about of effort into their posts, an average post could be something like this,

“Bright’s cold, gray eyes flickered onto the smaller form of her daughter; Scream. She suppressed an irritated snort at the young female’s lack of care, but then again, Bright herself didn’t give a damn for any of her children either. Rolling her shoulder’s painfully, she glanced at the sky, claws unsheathing and pressing at the compact earth, “A car decided to make prey of me..” she said simply.[Written by Illusion Bright]”

Though there are variations upon them, some can be very simple and hardly more than a sentence and with the worst of grammar. Most people attempt to their best and many improve over time. But a simplified version of roleplay could be this, they shall remain anonymous.

“the clan is youre famaly and we are not dead” her eyes glitterd when she rememberd her only kin that had nearly murderd her “it is never to lait”

But then there are the monsters, the posts that harbor very little real information or just repeat it over and over again as if their point wasn’t made clearly enough. In everyone’s roleplaying “careers” they will probably be guilty of creating repetitive, undecipherable monsters. Even the best of us is guilty of it at one point, or will be someday. Here is an example,

She seemed to be in even more pain now and he didn’t know how to adjust to it, before he had been the broken one but now everything was transferred over to her. He didn’t matter; he just wanted her to be happy. If she wasn’t happy, the world would implode on itself and everything he knew would be nothing but dust and darkness. She pleaded for his warmth, but he would not just let her sit there and wallow in her pains and heartache. It was time to move, the moon beckoned him to get up and move, to dance in the moon light and feel the moon’s jolly side fill them with hilarity. It was not a time for sadness now, it was time for them to be together and run and jump! “Get up, Mallowpaw!” He urged, his voice eager and bright, trying to steal all the worries from her mind. “My love, my sunshine, my joy, we can’t worry are selves away into the ground like plants! Let the cares drift away and dance with the moon’s light. Get up, my love.” He was already moving and jumping, no matter how awkwardly, he put aside his difficulties in movement just for her. He had learned to balance surprisingly well on his three working legs. Briefly, he dipped in beside her to caress her cheek and stroke his crooked tail along her softly furred flank. It was the time for cats! His eyes were brilliant orbs of yellow, just like the stars. He paused from his jumping looking at her hurting eyes; he was smiling sadly, looking at her shining tears. “Please, don’t cry.” He whispered his voice so soft and meaningful that it could have stopped the clouds from crying. “You are with me now; I will take all your hurt away from you just so you can be happy. And then we can dance in the moonlight until the scolding sun sends us off to our nests. Even then, we will be together to share our warmth and hearts.” He pressed his nose to each side of her face, on the sodden streaks her tears had cut. “Your hurt is mine, I will suffer with you but we must not let it bring us down. Something StarClan would not want, I learned that from you. You taught me that StarClan does not will unhappiness, we bring unhappiness upon ourselves and how we take it. Trust me; few have come so close to the darkness I have without seeing a single battle or a single germ. Come, my love. We will run to the stars and back and just be happy to be together! Hates may change, but memories do not!” He was so gleeful and full of energy that he could hardly contain it, the movement was intoxicating. He could see a tree and he would wonder, how high can I climb that? Or hear the distinct rustle of a mouse and muse, could I catch that? And for him, he would say, I will climb to the stars! And I will catch the mouse! He was in a love induced high that glittered in his eyes and was obvious in his quivering body. “Oh, Mallowpaw! Mallowpaw!” He cried in feverish ecstasy, “What have you done to me that makes me so giddy? Is it your ageless face that makes my body melt? Or your beautiful personality that leaves he lost for words? Everything! You are everything me, my breath and heart beat. I wish you not to despair, I wish you naught do anything to bring another tear to your gorgeous eyes.” He turned to her again, his face positive aglow in love, a smile so much like the moon that they seemed to be twins. He was so earnest in his attempts to stop her from crying again, that emotion so strong welled up in his own eyes and spilled onto his face, tracing dark lines. “Oh, me, but my tears are not for sorrow but for you, Mallowpaw, dear Mallowpaw. Come with me into the night, where my tears will not be seen by the laughing moon.” He chuckled, choking slightly on the emotion in his throat, “The moon mocks our tears, for before he was sober and somber and now he a jolly fellow, who likes to dance with the stars.” His watery eyes looked into the cherished solitude of the solitude and wanted to lay with Mallowpaw there, simply enjoying each other and the nature around them. They would breathe as one with the darkness as their blanket, gaze into each other’s shadowed eyes. Possibly, the energy that coiled in Twistedpaw would be released in some act that cried with the moon as he danced across the sky with his millions of stars. Twistedpaw was still and quiet, facing Mallowpaw, his jaw still and his heart thumping in his chest heavily as if he had ran for miles, instead of his brief spout of jumping and twisting in the space between the tickling willows. His mouth was open slightly, the moon reflecting off of his pearly canines. His folded over Scottish ears twitching silently as he looked at Mallowpaw, had her tears dried on the inside? The streaks remained on her face though she shed no more. He wished he knew, and the words came to his mouth before he could stop them. “My love, do your tears stop? Has my actions dried them? I wish not to see them shed on your beautiful face, I do not want them to stain your fur and make you sad forever more.” He was quiet again; his emotions were going wild, from ecstatic highs to deep lows. He was mentally exhausted even though his body was full of pent of energy that waited to be released. Twistedpaw took a restrained step forward; it was all he could do to keep from sprinting the short distance between them. He wound he head around her and gave a very feline-like embrace. Without arms, all he could do was to clutch her to him with his chin and head. It was close enough for him as he shared it with her. In her ear, he whispered, “Please, don’t cry anymore. It hurts my heart and my heart is, and will always be, yours.”[Written by Owlstar]

Although the language in this one isn’t as horrible as some, the use of words on Kugyay is occasionally wildly out of hand. For some posts, it appears that the writer has consumed a dictionary and thrown it up on the internet. Some are worse than others, but all of them are usually tedious to read and annoying. Mostly they are used just for entrance posts, which are mile long usually describing the weather and the description of their character, which are a sign of pride to those who post them. The longer they are and the more detailed, the better.

Kugyay’s Plots

Current Plot:

Over the past months of May-June 2012, a large plot has been circulating which was created and pulled together by Leafed. I began with this prophecy: 

“The Sky is beckoning for its salvation, it shall be either saved or destroyed, but only by the power of the Four.The day the Star of the Sky falls will be the day of reconcile.”

So far, this plot has gone over with much success. It has included all of the Clans and enacted many large scale battles.It even included the Vipers, which were previously known only to be a nuisance rogue group. The plot will be soon wrapping up with a large scale battle against the Vipers along with a major layout change to welcome the summer.

Welcome

This site was created in April of 2007, and was a relatively small website with only a small group of friends from real life to be the members. It wasn’t one of the first websites, but it started to be a hit. The first roleplayers to arrive at this new place were inexperienced and still learning how to do the basics. Kugyay was just an infant at this time, covered with obscene advertisements, imposters, cybering, trolls and poorly roleplaying people.

Fortunately, most of these things declined in time, but at the moment it was a virtual chaos. The original owner, called Firestar, did not get much time to realize that his little site would become one of the largest Warrior roleplays on the internet. He was forced to leave the site in the hands of Bumblestar, only Bumblepelt then. But as much as Bumblestar was respected, she was not the most active at all times, due to illness and real life issues.

The summer of ’07 began and the site was becoming ever more popular, though you still had to search through the pages to find someone to communicate with. Problems were still high, mainly in cybering and imposters, because few people had a freewebs account. In the month of June, Owlstar first began alone with a host of still well known roleplayers such as Dinoclaw, Blazeclaw, Dirkstripe, Dappledleaf, and many more. It was certainly a season of change.

Accounts were beginning to be created, roleplays a little more elaborate even though they still communicated through asterisks( **) and everything was roleplay, there was no such thing as “bracket land” at the time. Ambertail was the co-owner beneath Bumblestar and things were running smoothly… granted, smoothly wasn’t the same definition of smooth now. But another of the highranks was removed by the hand of their parents, Ambertail stepped down from the position and Owlstar took her place.

Now, roleplay was improving as the school year began though there were countless people who dropped the website entirely as their schedules busied. During this time more people joined but more notably, Bounceheart, who has a place in the story later. This was the beginning of paragraph roleplay, instead of simple roleplay with asterisks. Owlstar claims to be the first to initiate this.

This period of time was rocky though, as months went by leaders were becoming increasingly inactive, some seemed to completely disappear. Along with the problems was armies, people, wolves, fantasy creatures, powers and a whole host of other things. Few were resolved over the school year, but despite that, Kugyay’s popularity was increasing. In the summer, “Get a Mate” or GAM as it was referred to, became the place to be, with no other area being quite as fun. It was the summer of 2008, the weirdest summer in Kugyay’s history.

It was a strange combination of flying cats, resurected wolves and elves that strung golden arrows. It seemed the heart of the site had gone to the dogs, it was also a period of time where none of the owners seemed to be any help, other than an occasional outburst from the high ranks. And during this hectic time, Bounceheart, or Bouncy as he was known to his friends became a co-owner. He was introduced as an innovative person, full of ideas to help the site and he did for awhile. He made up for Bumblestar and Owlstar inactivty by adding members and being a general helper.

Some people created mini groups for cats with powers and adopting kits was the new hip thing, and there seemed to be an onslaught of abandoned, dying and pathetic kits. One of the most remembered roleplayers from this time is Honeyleopard, known to have powers and adopted many kits. But her time came and went, as people moved on.

The only notable addition to Kugyay was the first page of Neko Kugyay, which was just a single page attached to the bottom of the pages. Though it was later extended to be a complete site, which was joined by Wolf Kugyay. Though they were offhand creations, both sites cut down on the presence of humans and other animals, which got many people very upset during this time. Many armies were starting up that caused just as many problems, though they were harder to get rid of. Vipers began, and a notable roleplayer who was much resented arrived, Larkfur.

During the school year it went into a steady system, leaders were inactive but members had accepted that and just roleplayed normally, devoid of many rules. It rolled into 2009, more months of steady nothing, rules were broken and advertising was everywhere, but people continued to come. It seemed everyone was into their own little thing, GAM[Get a Mate] was dominate. Bounceheart was still the most active owner although Owlstar was stirring.

In 2009, it was a season of “leaving the site will cure all our problems.” Self-proclaimed legends, those who had been on since 2007, felt above everyone else and a host of “secret” websites. Such sites as, Kugyayrefreshed and outcats were created and only “the best” roleplayers were invited. But almost all the time, one or two unfavorable people got onto the site and “ruined” it. Luckily, this stage didn’t last too long and nearly all the sites were removed though Kugyayrefreshed still remains, though it is now dead.

Possibly the most notable thing was the explosion in popularity on the Xat box, the joining of Leafedvine in August and Tunnelstar’s rise to leadership in RiverClan. But things seemed to be stuck in a cycle, but just into the 2009 school year, problems began to arise with Bounceheart, especially around the new member Leafedvine. Owlstar was the only one to moderate the developments with only a few interactions with Bumblestar. But as things continued, it was made clear Bounceheart was no longer a fit co-owner. There was only Bumblestar and Owlstar now, and with Bumblestar gone half the time Owlstar was left alone in the position.

Shortly after, Kugyay got the first shocking revelation that life is hard. It was the first time Kugyay crashed due to its exceeded bandwidth in January, and it was bound to happen again if they didn’t make changes. This was the beginning of a new thing, something odd. Pictures were reduced and clan lists, still unorganized and cluttered with pictures were linked to new sites. It was very different, but it kept the site from going under for quite a long time.

With Owlstar alone, few things advanced but the site was kept more or less under control but she wouldn’t be alone for long in her co-owning position. It was 2010 now, and Owlstar began pushing for some companyl, although Bumblestar was on more due to her leader position in WindClan. She was determined to have someone else to push the grunt of the work load onto, as an Owner, she never enjoyed the tedious duties which often made her less favorable when people wanted things done.

It was around June of 2010 before Leafedvine became an owner, he was little known on the main Kugyay site and usually was on the xat at the beginning. But he became quickly known, many didn’t understand him at all and wondered how he became an owner. The more he got known, the more he was loved and also hated. There were many negative people toward him, more than Owlstar had during 2008 school year when she did little more than sit there and Bumblestar was gone. But he was full of ideas and things started to change.

There were new graphics and territories arrived, and many leaders were becoming active. That included Tunnelstar, Blueestar, followed by Tigerstar. RiverClan was in its prime, WindClan was lagging behind and as always, ThunderClan reigned supreme. ShadowClan seemed always to be in the middle of everything, and the Tribe was practically dead but just beginning to twitch.

2011 came and it seemed to be the year of innovation, things were finally moving forward. Kugyay was slimmed down, more interactive and with a lovely new look and graphics. Many of these things were pushed forward by Owlstar and Leafedvine. The Hunt, a site-wide scavenger hunt was the hit off to the summer, which set a storm of new things.

Gatherings, which were previously ignored, became regular and a contest for the writers of Kugyay began. And Goldenstar became the new leader of WindClan, causing it to become one of the most active of the Clans. Though the same problems still persist around kugyay, armies, including Vipers and trolls from across the internet poised to strike at the roleplay. But in all, the little site that started with just a handfull of members grew to a place housing over 5,000 people.
