Are they genres such as action, romance or what not, or what? Many categories or genres can have thousands of different plots. So why limit?
First, get the concept of "This is just like all the other boards I've been on!" out of your head. We have these rules because of people like you who have come on here in the past, claiming to be "experts" as you are inferring yourself to be (RPing a ton, a thousand RPs and so forth), who cannot RP for a da.mn and wound up clogging up our board with worthless pieces of sod not fit to plant a creative seed into. Feel free to browse locked threads that are less than a page; you'll see what we mean.
This isn't to say we don't accept new people.
Also, we don't specifically cater to "Action" or "Romance" et cetera in specifics. Every RP known to man has every genre in it to some degree. This is more a theme for each RP: Scifi, High school sans powers, High school with powers, Resident Evil, and so on. It's not that hard of a concept to grasp but for awhile we were having loads of people come on making TONS of High School with powers RPs and it got to the point where we couldn't keep track of them all.
