Depends. I like stats myself, but stat RPs tend to die quickly, so we have no stat RPs at the moment.

2. I have an rpg in another forum that has been going about a year. It is a world I manufactured with its own races, religions, nations, and magic system. Would people play this if it showed potential? (as I would love to do it, but doing it again in the same forum probally wouldn't go over well)
First people would probably care about how good the GM is, then the world. You could have the best world ever, but if the GM is a (Bad quailty here, to many to list), no one is joining.

5. If I did want to use stats what should I use?
A good system of stats that prevent min-maxing and twinking.

People will see you have just another 8-Bit theater fanboy if you do those, and most of those people tend to have a below RPer expected intelligence, so that would push people away from joining your RP/letting them join theirs.

Interesting. Though I have only know about this site for about 4 months.


though the warning is much appreicated


as for the GM (I guess that is the term on this forum, right?) (game master vs Dugeon Master). I am pretty good at it myself but if I wanted to use stats I would have to do some research. Do you got a system you could recommend? (as I may want to try it in the furture)

Systems which require stats are a little hard to play within this enviroment, many of them die out quite quickly. You would have to consider this style of roleplaying very carefully, as it would take a lot of work on your part.

As to the question about your roleplay from another forum, you're welcome to bring the basis of it here. But be warned, roleplays never work the same from the first way played as everyone is unique in style and content. So if the roleplay doesn't go the way you first wanted it to, it's to be expected.

Yes, I can't count the number of plot revisions I've had to make in my own RP so far...sometimes it's just best to let people do their own thing, and let the plot impact them at various points until they become curious and start following it.

Just remember, this isn't an "always" rule, it's a "sometimes" rule.

There are different sign-up threads for each individual RP. Just look for a thread that has {insert title here} Sign-up or Sign-up/discussion.

Of course, preferably not more than a week old.

Most recent post that is.

Also, remember to look at the title to figure out if the setting is right for you.

I mean, my ultra-sexy FF1 char designs wouldn't work in a post-apocalyptic setting, would they?

Well...not without severe tweaking.
