I don't know if I'm going to RP, but I figured that I would get this started and begin populating this forum. Anywho...
Name: D.J. Applejack
Species: Human Gender: Male Age: 26 (Or variable)
Height: 5'11" Weight: 140 lbs. Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Birthplace: Arkham, Massachusetts Location: United States, North East Coast
Hobbies: Books, Occult, History Native Language: English

Well, here's a couple of characters. I dug up their bios from an old dead RP thread over at the Dinotopian RP website so I wouldn't have to rewrite them. Sorry it took so long to get this posted. My husband has been in the hospital all week so I've been pretty distracted. Fortunately I have my laptop here now and maybe I can keep up some while I'm here.
Name (First and last): Tiana Starr Age: Sixteen Gender: Female Species (Human or the species of Suarian) : Human Location (Anywhere on Dinotopia): Sauropolis Personality: She is 5' 2'' tall, slender, and well toned due to being highly athletic. Her hair is dark brown, thick and wavy, kept no longer than a few inches past her shoulders. Her eyes are hazel, bright and full of fire. Her nose is short, turning up just slightly in a cute way. Her smile is quick and eager, her lips are small with the lower one sticking out slightly farther than the other, giving her a slightly childish appearance. She believes in having fun and adventures and believes in having lots of friends and acquaintances. She loves playing games, interacting with people and dinosaurs, hearing stories and writing them, and she loves to dance on stage and perform in plays. Tiana is too active to be a tidy person. Running in and out so much causes her room to remain a mess. When she actually does clean it, she tends to push things in corners, under the bed, and into drawers and closets in a very unorganized way. Tiana likes bright colors, jewelry, and sparkly items. Her choice of clothing tends to be very feminine, form fitting, and pretty even when she’s playing rougher outdoor games. Tiana loves jokes and laughter as long as they’re not jokes about her features which she’s mortified about. She thinks she’s not pretty and is always afraid someone will tell her so. Concerning other things though, she’s got a good sense of humor. Tiana is very friendly but also terribly argumentative. Winning an argument is nearly as good as winning a ribbon or medal in a game. When Tiana is angry she storms about, stomping and slamming doors. Her words are short and cutting and she almost instantly raises her voice. When she’s sad she tries her hardest not to show it and she hates tears. If she cries she tries her best to make sure she’s alone and she becomes angry with herself if someone see’s her tears. Often when she’s sad she becomes quiet and reserved, avoiding people and dinosaurs often for fear she might cry in front of them. When Tiana is excited she become’s a little reckless, bouncing, cheering, or shouting almost as if excitement should go hand in hand with noise. Tiana dreams about becoming a writer rather than a storyteller. She dreams about going on exciting adventures and writing the stories down later. She dreams of seeing her stories lined up on the shelves of the most prestigious libraries on Dinotopia and seeing others read them over and over and begging for more. Tiana hates sewing, cooking, and cleaning. She hates missing out on big activities and festivals and she hates being told that she can’t do something. Tiana’s goal is to create a large collection of written out stories and present them to the Waterfall City library in hopes that they will allow more to be printed for more libraries and to be placed in small shops and vender stands in at least most of the larger cities.
Earth, Air or Water: Tiana doesn't like being put in a category--just a quirk of her personality, but Earth will do.
Name (First and last): Sekani Age: Adolecent raptor (I don't know what that is in years)Gender: Male Species (Human or the species of Suarian) : Deinonychus Location (Anywhere on Dinotopia): Sauropolis Personality: Being a saurian, he tries to follow the dinosaur customs and traditions but is sometimes rebellious towards some of them. This is probably because he is a Deinonychus orphan rescued from the Rainy Basin and his wild side surfaces from time to time. He is a tall and strong young Deinonychus with silvery gray skin and unusually bright yellow eyes. His feet are big and his tail extra long, making him look a little awkward. Sekani believes in keeping a strong bond with those he loves and cares about. He believes in being loyal no matter what happens. Also he believes in having fun and that everyone needs to be allowed to express themselves in their own special way. He loves playing games—especially daring ones leaning to the more violent side. He likes action, racing, and excitement. He especially loves chasing things. Sekani enjoys dancing as well and thrills in making up dances with his lively friend, Tiana. Sekani doesn’t like to take the time to be tidy. Big messes are more fun. Sekani is fascinated with locks and thrills in finding ways to undo them without a key. He is quite comfortable with handy tools for picking locks which has gotten him into trouble more than once. He doesn’t steal things, of course, his rebellious streak just keeps him interested in finding ways around things meant to keep him out. On the reverse side, Sekani likes to use his claws to carve pictures into soft pieces of wood. His artistic talent is astonishing where many dinosaurs are limited in their finger/claw dexterity. However, he likes to keep this talent to himself. He doesn’t think he’s as good as the human artists he’s seen. He has a good sense of humor, he’s friendly, but quite stubborn. He’d rather remain stubborn about where he stands on things rather then argue about his differences with others. When he is angry he tends to be noisy, like his friend Tiana. But he also withdraws himself and tends to be fierce to those around him. When he’s sad he becomes grouchy and snappish and easily gets his feelings hurt. He tends to back away from hugs and physical contact with anyone. When he’s excited he moves about carelessly, knocking things over in his haste. Sekani dreams of finding an important job, but he struggles at finding something he’s good at other than competing in games. He would like to join a rescue party, but most reject him due to his high strung personality. He yearns to prove himself good for such a job. Sekani hates rejection more than anything and he dreads the prospect of a broken friendship. He also hates to be defeated in anything.
I think im going to stick with one character at the moment and to make it simple since I need to get used to the whole RP setting again.
Name: Mortin Boyd Age: 26 Gender: Male Former Occupation: Air Force Fighter pilot F-15SE, now a new resident dolphinback
Bio&personality (going to keep this short because I want this character to develope as I play him)
Mortin as a child was always curious, he would draw amazing things one day and forget about them the next. During school his homework woudl often been littered with dozens of drawings and he was often caught daydreaming in class. This carried with him all the way to collage where he majored in mathematics, not one to be searching for a job Morton decided to do ROTC while in collage and managed to stick with it for the full years of school and upon graduation day was commissioned in the USAF and soon made his way to flight school with a dream in mind. "to see the world form the shoulders of giants" While stationed out near a UK base there was a accident during a training sortie and Morton had to eject. He was not found by rescuers, not because he drowned but because he had already been saved. Morton woke up to a wonderful island which he soon found to be not so normal after only a few short hours after awakening.
OOC: so anyone who wishes to RP, I made it so my character has a very open path to where im not confined to one place or one occupation, training, school, at waterfall city etc etc. Hit me up and I can come up with a premise or you can it doesn't matter.)

Decided I might as well throw another stone into the character pond Name: Anthony Reid Species: Human Gender: Male Age: 15
Height: 5'8" Weight: 100 lbs. Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
Birthplace: Forest Hills, texas
Hobbies: Paleontology, reading, writing, drawing, and fossil hunting Native Language: English
General Description: Anthony has always been considered a bit of a nerd by his piers, but he generally enjoys doing what he does. While some spend their time messing around with friends, Anthony prefers to spend his time fossil hunting in the streams And while some would prefer the couch and a good tv session, Anthony prefers exploring the woods behind his house in Northeast Texas. As one might suspect however, spending so much time alone in the outdoors or at his desk writing and drawing doesn't exactly do wonders for his social skills. Now though, Anthony has the chance of a lifetime. A college who has noticed his love for Vertabrate Paleontology has invited him to come on a dig with them for the summer in Australia. Unknown to him, an unforeseen tragedy is about to turn into an unexpected journey in a world lost from time...

I have several characters, most of them being characters from the FanFiction I've had in the works for YEARS! I'll use different characters, depending on the location of the RP. Also, in my head, spoken Dinotopian is expressed as Esperanto. Just something to keep in mind.

Hand over the chocolate and no one gets hurt! Except Raptors, because even I refuse to get between a raptor and his/her chocolate.

applejack: Hello, Sarabean. Ebay is definitely the way to go. You can reach the most amount of people that way.

Sarabean: Hello everyone, I have a Dinotopia tee shirt and sweatshirt from 1992 but am unable to find any on ebay. Any suggestions if selling on ebay is the way to go, or is a different avenue better? Thanks

applejack: I'm not an appraiser, but the prices for the 1000pc puzzles seem to be listed online for 35-50 dollars used. Of course, this doesn't say anything about whether they're actually sellable for that amount, only that they're being offered at those prices.
Jun 26, 2016 5:37:54 GMT -5
Denwill: Hi I'm not sure if I'm going about this in the right way but I just wanted to get some advice on the value of two 1994 1000 piece dinotopia puzzles that I have. Looking to sell them. Can anyone help?
Jun 25, 2016 0:55:20 GMT -5
applejack: Just create a topic in the Dinotopia Discussion forum. You can post pictures of the item, though again, no direct links, and let people know they can send you a PM or email for the direct link to your auction page or for some other kind of arrangements.
Jun 20, 2016 8:57:43 GMT -5
datoyshoppe: There are a lot of different topics going on and not much activity? Any suggestions on a best area to post in? Link?
Jun 20, 2016 8:15:48 GMT -5
datoyshoppe: OK that's fine. It is listed on eBay under Gigantic 3 Foot Dinotopia Dinosaur currently listed.
Jun 20, 2016 8:12:51 GMT -5
applejack: Heh. Sorry I can't be of any more help. I'm not the merchandise guy here. Just put a post in the Dinotopia forum. Don't put up any links though, since you have under 15 posts. Just let people know they can PM you or email you for any inquiries.
Jun 18, 2016 19:28:45 GMT -5
datoyshoppe: It is 2002 MAT Movies and Television Productions. Very authentically DINOTOPIA it also has "26" Dinotopia on it and distributed by Hallmark Entertainment Distribution LLC. It is literally 3 feet tall. I am going to post it for auction tonight.
Jun 18, 2016 19:11:14 GMT -5
applejack: Hmm... I can't seem to find anything about any large 3-ft tall Dinotopia plushes. The only thing I can see is a large triceratops plush kids can ride put out by KOTA. Are there any tags that identify the manufacturer or how it's related to Dinotopia?
Jun 18, 2016 17:48:04 GMT -5
datoyshoppe: I am new here. I was interested in any information on the GIGANTIC Dinotopia Dinosaur I found recently? It is HUGE like probably three feet tall or so. Was it a display plush? It is the only one I have found over the years. If anyone has any more info?
