As much as I agree the idea is worthwhile, it still involves a lot of work on my behalf to have to update this thread with the relevant information every time a roleplay closes. Isn't it enough for the players to have fulfilled their roles and aknowledged the life of the roleplay? When all is said and done, it remains as a closed thread anyway, so people can look back if they want to read the roleplays of old.

Tor: As much as people may be more likely to speed up and finish their roleplays for this idea, it would increase the amount of small posts/spam to attain this. As it is, many of the roleplays currently taking place would have never been allowed in the old forum because of the lack of description and depth. Perhaps if I see a change in the roleplaying behavior, I'll consider this idea further. But at the moment, I'm choosing against it.

I'm new here so I need a quick rundown of the rules of roleplaying. It seems fun and I'd like to see what I can do.

Your best bet would be to read the rules/guidelines thread and take a look at some of the roleplays.

Well, this applies to roleplaying, so here goes- Does anyone know of a site or national chain of shops that has D&D books and/or materials for cheap?

I've been into D&D for a few years now, but I'm somewhat new to online RPing. Is there a level-up/stat system similar to D&D or other tabletop RPGs, or is it more open-ended than that? Or does it simply depend on the person running the particular RP? I could really go either way, but is there a universal system everyone adheres to?

To Smash: You can buy used books off of they've got good prices on those and usually they're in good condition.

To Storm: One rule that's always present, No God-Modding. Besides that usually it's open ended but it all depends on the GM.

I don't know where I read/saw it, but (Storm) the best way to think of RPing online is to forget anything that vaguely concerns actual RPGS (Console or tabletop or otherwise) and just think of it as writing a stroy from one point of view. That way you won't have to concern yourself with stats or hitpoints or anything like that, and instead just think of it in terms of *would my guy do this, would he like SoandSo's character* instead of *Well, I have thirteen Charisma, and I'm aligned to the dark yadda yadda*

So in closing, RPing online is writing a story, not playing a game.

Ah, OK, that was what I thought. So, when you join an RP, you type a short blurb about your character, and then introduce him/her/it into the setting, right? That's my previous experience from this sort of thing (which I admit was not very extensive).

IHateMakingNames 02-29-2004 04:01 PM

No, you join sign ups. None are on now, so you would post in a discussion and ask first. If you just walk into the middle of an RP you will be ignored (And some people will flame you).

StormRider 02-29-2004 04:04 PM

Ah, OK. Then it's a good thing I asked first.
