I am looking to start a RP of my own and have several questions as to how to handle it:
1. Would it be better to go for the stat based RP or the story based?
2. Can I get in trouble for making an extemely long post? I tend to be long winded while RPing
3. What is the best way to go about sign-up?

1. Story based works better in forums such as these.
2. You just have to be wary that sometimes people are put off by too long/too short posts. Find a happy medium.
3. Put up the introduction to your roleplay, maybe the things you require of a character bio, any information you feel the people need to know. Or skip the sign-up and jump right in. Anything goes.

if you're worried about people making innappropriate characters, then use a sign-up, it's a lot less hassle to deal with them when you have advance warning...

Generally, stats take longer to work out. Most of us don't bother and try to be more story-driven.

I'm kinda new to this board, but I think I have an ok RP idea, so I just wanted to know the following

1) Has anyone done a Magic the Gathering RP?
1a) If so, did it bomb, did it reach fruition, was it too statty?

2) When basing a RP off an existing world, do people usually go story-driven or stat? (my MtG RP is story)

3) Would people be put off by the MtG name, or that a n00b (to these boards) is running it?

4) Did I do the right thing by posting this here, or should I have made a seperate thread?

In advance, thanks.

1) Not that I know of.
2) RPs in general try to avoid stats, exceptions being made to avoid godmoding. Reference Matrix TNG RP.
3) Newbs are generally given a chance if they prove they aren't n00bs.
4) You did what few newcomers do: the right thing.

Grrr, there are way too many new threads for me to sift through to see which ones are sign ups.

Anyone looking for an experienced RPer that has a penchant for kooky characters?

Characters that have slightly odd personalities and cause conflict with the general "norm" of the group. These conflicts tend to be comedic in nature.

Some of these characters include a 40ft red dragon who is a Shao-lin Buddhist, an assassin accountant, a thief who wants to be a warrior, and an utter coward that cannot be killed by magic...which doesn't me he can't be severely hurt by magic. Oh yea! I almost forgot my orc paladin! Oh man, that was some great stuff there.

The older RPers on this board may remember some of those characters.
