Well, as Kip said, letís go back to the gist of this topic! You guys keep deviating me from the essence of my RP spirit!

Here we goÖ

In the earlier years of my life, Iíve never imagined that I will be involved with RPing. Iíve been familiar with the concept but never really tried to meddle with it. Upon joining the CH forums, I met Mytical, Elvin, Omega and the others. They invited me to join one. Since Iím bored and Iíve always wanted to try something new, I joined, unaware that the event would spark the creative writing spirit hidden inside me!

Iíve really enjoyed RPing and eventually it made me want to make my own RP! Itís MY DREAM! So now, I made up my mind and decided to put it into work. Apparently I have problems thatís why I needed help. They are as follows:

1. Time
As a family gal, Iím always busy balancing work and family duties. Iím pretty sure those of you who have a family knows this! So there would be times that I wonít be able to update the RP and it could be indefinitely.

2. Grammar and Language
English isnít my first language mates! Iím pretty sure itís very obvious. From time to time, I make mistakes thatís why my posts are always almost edited. I canít make an RP with sloppy paragraphs! Else Iíll give my players a long lasting headache. So basically I need help with this.

3. Mechanics
I want to use dice rolls and put on some stats in my RP! DO NOT DISCOURAGE ME on this. Thatís how I want to determine the outcome in-game, mainly the combat and obstacles. This is the first time that Iím going to do GM stuff so I donít have any experience with this kind of mechanics. I donít know if there are online RP dice rolling generator and I need assistance. (After posting this, I changed my mind. It could be a semi-free form or something. It just need to have a way to determine combats, obstacles, etc... I think it's hard).

4. Lack of Experience a.k.a. Noobility
Never really had any experience about being a GM. I hope to run a smooth RP and I think my lack of experience will stop me from doing it.

Thatís why I think I NEED HELP!

I need a co-GM!

I donít know if RPs with two GMs could work but I want to try. Anyways, as my co-GM you will do the following:

1. Brainstorm with me about RP ideas. Help me build the world, locations, characters, stats, monsters, etc.
2. Guide me with running the RP. Mainly, pointing out bad things and suggesting good things in the making and running of the RP.
3. Run the RP in my absence. You will be informed if such thing happens.
4. Help me with the mechanics, like doing dice rolls etc.
5. Review and edit my updates before I post it to avoid players from taking Tylenol when they read it.
6. Iím pretty sure I forgot something so expect there would be more things than those stated above.

As my co-GM, you can choose to join the RP but your character will be just like the regular players. You will know the plot of the RP. Well maybe, just 70% of it . And yes, you will have knowledge of things thatís going to happen unlike the regular players. You can also choose not to join. And mind you, we are going to communicate A LOT.

Soo...

To you, *points my finger on you* my future co-GM, thank you for making my dream come true!

Most of what you posted is solvable even without a co-GM with a bit of creative thinking. Still, I don't mind being a co-GM, at least for several months. Especially, since I've done something like that before. I was as worried as you about running an RP once, so I roped BETA to be the GM of One Piece RP and helped him with the storyline along the way.

It's ok ceres, all we need are interesting situations that require some thought to solve and where creative thinking can apply. I would also like to have enough information to make realistic decisions and not to find later that ie there was thick vegetation around me that concealed enemies, or that the ground was slippery and things like that. Though unexpected screw ups and accidents are welcome
