We need some new blood.

It is imperative that we make a new RPG. Why? Well, nothing and no-one new comes to play! I take a look at this forum from time to time, and what do I see? Same people, same RPGs. We need to do something about this.

Why?

If you don't do it, it will never happen by itself. Everything in the universe we live in is caused by something, and this won't just happen. I'd like to make a new RPGs, but I'm not in much of a position to do so, particularly because I have zero experience and I don't really know the typical pillars an RPG stands on(e.g The basis). Also, ideas that came to me for one were either stupid or too complicated for a first timer. So how about we collaborate, and make a new RPG? An RPG that's simple and aimed at first-timers, good deal, no?

I am not a massive fan of roleplay because of the restrictions. If they made one that would be more "free roam" so to speak, sure.

You have to have restrictions in an RP, otherwise it'll become a BBB(bigger,better,badder) style mess, which in turn becomes boring really quick.

A good example is my recent fantasy game. Although Husham deleted most of his char sheets it was pretty retarded and game breaking. because he just went tl;dr and after reading the phrase "free form" proceeded to make a fantasy equivalent of batman with an ever replenishing elixir of youth.

There's no point in making new RPs, when there aren't enough players. I made an RP game recently. go see for yourself.

All the frequent RPers have either quit hc or are busy in RL.

Yes, that is true. Both statements, actually.

Restrictions must be made, but it will depend on the GM to say if they will be strict or just some borderlines to say "this is where things won't fit into the game anymore, don't go there; anyway, knock yourself off".
Too much freedom can be a double-edged blade. Just look at Harklen - people soon got stuck, not knowing what to do. It was a fine idea, but it didn't work in the end, due to it not having a clear goal at all.


Also, the lack of free time is killing me. Don't know about others, but it would appear that most of the RPers have vanished without a trace.

Well, you're right. Then I think I'm not just cut out for this acting business.  Maybe I should just write my own short stories to have control and leave it at that.

I, too, suffer from peaks of little free time to spend. And that which I have, I'd rather spend playing games.
Also, HC has become an increasingly caustic environment during the development of the new Heroes game, causing me to see little reason to come here.
With Kip starting a new RP, things might change for me. And I will be back later to read it.

Interesting how he motivates his lack of RP drive to the issues of another entirely unrelated subforum. Flawless logic.

I don't mind his contribution as long as he stops being a cry baby auto-victimizing himself over dead and buried stuff. It's annoying.

I get really bad spells of "I don't want to do anything" and then it's hard to catch up the 5 pages of story that were added and I'm too embarrassed to return. Also, if the other sub-fora suck, then you don't hang around to check for notices in bard's glade. If I were to join an RP, I'd probably need someone willing to poke me on other social media or some snow to prevent hibernation. Love you guys!

It's bothersome when you bring the subject up with every occasion. You left on that note and you come back on that note. Just get over it already man, what the hell.

I would love to participate in yours, but I'd make it worse because I don't know anything about proffesional/organized crime, mafias and that stuff.

to get a better glimpse of it watch the following:

Godfather trilogy
Goodfellas
Brigada(rooskie miniseries)
Bandits of St. Petersburgh(also rooskie)
Black Lagoon anime
Antikiller(another rooskie crime series)
Pulp Fiction
Zero: Lilac Lithuania(Zero 2 is optional, but it's trying to hard to be Pulp Fiction)
Redirected
Guy Ritchie crime films

Also play some GTA or Mafia games.
You can also read up on wikipedia or some crap.

Opinions, everyone has one. For me, Stevie's is pertinent. And I tolerate others as long as they tolerate mine.

Sorry for the derailment.

GTA is barely "organized" crime, I played it. Agree about Mafia, though. Played it back when I was a kid. Also played Godfather and Godfather 2. Might check out some of the movies, but no promises.

You want to know how to make a good RPG thread? Go through the "Let's Have War!" thread in the Glade. Made by champions of RPG'ing's first few years in the glade.... Also because we realized in being entertaining in our SPAM, our posts weren't being sent to the Wastelands and would be around for young pups like yourself to learn from lol

You know, that's one of the first threads I read on HC. I used to come back from uni every day and read a couple of pages from both the IC and OOC. I enjoyed it so much. LHW is what made me want to RP here in the first place.
