A HC RPG

This question would be first directed to mods, but then to other members, whoever is willingly to give an opinion on the matter.

Right now I'm writing a book, and practice makes it perfect. I've placed my Heroes game project on hold for such thing, but I thought another sort of activity would help me improve some input upon writing skills, such as also insights over people's resolve and line of thought, without demanding too much time. And then an old thing that I had going on CH, before even having our own domain, resurfaced.

I had a game called Mansion of Mysteries, a very bland name yes, but it was meant to be a sort of storytelling game, and members would go in and out whenever they felt like, and I would update the game every now and then. I think there are things like that going around here as well, I'm not sure. I'm thinking on using the same setting.

So, I would like to know if I am allowed to create a thread like that? And if I am, where would be the best place? I would prefer creating that on CH, but we are very little active right now. And if I create, if there's a mild number of people that would like to try getting into the story; you may enter and leave whenever you wish. If you need to leave it for good, just let me know so I can give a proper sending off.

My proposition is a game that would require me getting back to it once per week, giving the full week for people to interact, edit whatever they feel like changing, whilst giving me time to read and make the game go on properly. I would narrate the story based on players decisions and control "npcs".

If I'm not allowed to create the thread, then, I will let it go.  Let it gooo...

That's textbook Glade material. Consider me interested!

EDIT: Click for correct subforum

AFAIK the way to go about it is opening 2 threads, 1 for in-character interactions, i.e. the game, and one for out-of-character stuff like character sheets, setting, ground rules, etc

Yea, I wouldn't recommend the Glade for it. That place is pretty much dead.

Oh, thanks, Poly, I sort of overlooked that place somehow. I concluded it was the name of a RPG fixed there.

Regarding character sheets, the proposition would, perhaps not require one, but perhaps having the place to assemble what people have or is carrying around if we are talking about key-items? Let's assume it's an interactive book of sorts and see how it evolves. But certainly, a side thread with its rules would be interesting, or maybe visual sheet would suffice on the first post?

Where else would you suggest if not there?

Eh? Why wouldn't you put it in the glade if it's an RPG? People are not going to miss it or anything as it would always show up in most recent posts.

Perhaps Stevie was more concerned regarding recruiting people to play and then people getting to know there's this new game there to play as well. I for one never entered the Glade until poly mentioned it. I was indirectly aware of the place, only by seeing KareeahIndaga's post every now and then as the most recent.

Anyway, I'm waiting mod orientation to proceed. And those who are interested in it, of course.

All it takes to notice the RPG subforum is to look at the various discussion boards from the main page though^^
Most likely RPGers already know the place and won't miss anything. To be sure, you could do a promotional thread elsewhere but start the actual thing in the appropriate subforum. My two cents.

Of course.

Hope there are not creepy spiders lurking there.

Good, markmasters. All we'll require is good will and some ambiance. People will make characters and will try to give life to them. It's common deviating from the starting proposal, so it'll be a mutual learning experience.

Great, I might be willing to give it a shot then, but fair warning, I am a total noob in this.

Nice.

I have no intentions on making people throw dices to play this thing. It's a story told by all of those involved, actually. By the end of a week's work, I'll round up thing, make the interactions between the involved and the game/npcs and continue from there.

As just as story goes, we need convincing story telling and each of us will learn from the other how to write or even how to express your own character, refining the process. And it's free to enter and leave anytime you wish, so I'm not demanding anything but that you try to make your character convincing, only. And mind that I'll be a sort of fair logical thing around to be wary. If you happen to decide drinking acid, I'll certainly kill you, for example. And you may reflourish back into the story as a new character, learning from past-life experience you ought to avoid drinking acid.

If it's going to look how I think it's going to look, start in the Tavern. That will help draw a crowd and there has been similar threads in the Tavern in the past. If at some point we'll decide that it's better to move it to the Glade it won't be hard to do.

If this clause continues to be in effect consider me interested.

It's been a long while since I've done one of these, but ultimately I've never finished a roleplay due to IRL matters, I'm willing to give it a shot anyway.

This.

What you're trying to do would fit in the Glade, but if you put it there you'll only have a select few actively posting at best, and even that population will eventually wither away. The Tavern is not a bad place for it either, you'd appeal to a broader audience that way.

Goody. If someone happens not to be able to play, it would be nice to tell me. So I would take their characters and keep them going on as far as possible or have them sorted out somehow. Once per week might be a good amount of time to keep things going and give people, and myself, time to write things.

Right. There's already a nice number of folk to try it. I think I'll open on the Tavern, and then OmegaDestroyer move to the Glade, if necessary, although I also rather it would stay around the Tavern. For the Glade is dark and full of terrors.

There's a small set of rules to help keep things steady (I'm mulling over the amount of interaction between participants as well; the same time checking how much freedom to provide while avoiding huge chunks of interactions to break the pace of the story), but I'll arrange the thread tonight, when I get more time to make the last arrangements.
