    Viewpoint "I don't get it." What's an RP Fandom/Theme/Idea you could never understand?

    Dream SMP for me. I understand that there are a lot of fans of it and Minecraft as a whole here, but I do not fully see the joy of it. Stranger Things gets a very close second.

    Experiences Your first character (and do you still use them)

    My first character -- two characters, actually -- started out as a unique idea that turned out rather likable but terrible in terms of mechanics. In the end, however, I wrote a 10+-chapter story for them and developed them into what I feel are unique protagonists in a classic setting but a very...

    Other You've Just Become Your Character

    I wrote my first post as a teenage girl who semi-automatically mirrors personalities and is so close to falling into a personality-less void if she ever gets indoctrinated further by a void-obsessed cult. Oh yeah, and I am probably going to head into battle with my hammer-wielding teacher on...

    Advice/Help Starting pbp tabletop RP

    Nice! I'll see what I can get for a player base. I know of some people similar to yourself that were new-ish and looking for a game, so I'll give them first dibs along with yourself.

    Advice/Help Starting pbp tabletop RP

    Eh, forget it. There is more than enough of me to go around. =P I can strike up a group D&D 5e setting if desired, a good place for beginners and veterans, or if you want to make one I can be a player. I have a campaign that worked well in the past on tabletop and is still fresh in my mind...

    Advice/Help Starting pbp tabletop RP

    I am in agreement. Learning a dice game as a DM/GM is challenging if not having experience watching or playing, though there are communities out there that are very helpful for each game excepting maybe the more obscure games. I would love to help out myself but have limited time due to work...

    Advice/Help Starting pbp tabletop RP

    Tabletop roleplay is not very commonly seen here, but it is employed! Custom, Exalt, Vampire The Masquerade, and D&D 3e/5e seem like the most common I have seen, all very good games if done right. Keep an eye out and you will see the occasional tabletop-style RP in the dice roleplay section...

    Experiences Did You Ever Complete a Roleplay?

    Crud, I forgot to answer most of these back. Time to correct that. Thanks, Wings! Nice work, in such a case! Twice is more than I have accomplished, and going for a third or more is quite the feat in my eyes. I hope that they were as fun as they are finished. =) I can agree that even...

    Experiences What was your worst roleplay experience?

    Hah! All of this was kind of running through my mind as well. So many questions are needed to be answered in order to get the full picture, but the mentality was one I do not think I can even wrap my head around. I am glad that you and hopefully other people got a kick out of this, however. =P

    Experiences What was your worst roleplay experience?

    Oh man . . . there are a lot of cringey worst experiences here, it seems. I do not think that mine can compare, but it can be a good laugh. I was in an IRC chat with a number of people, but chiefly with my co-GM messaging back and forth about our roleplay, what to do, etc. We knew some others...

    Experiences Did You Ever Complete a Roleplay?

    I daresay that you have completed a milestone if both have reached the end of the first arc or season of a longer story, so good on you, both of you!

    Experiences Did You Ever Complete a Roleplay?

    I feel your pain there in both situations. There is nothing quite like making a situation where one or more players are assured to fail. As a D&D DM, I have put several situations together that would have killed players outright. The moment it did happen I was stunned to silence. In terms of...

    Experiences Did You Ever Complete a Roleplay?

    You might be correct about the mortality rate. I have had more experiences with group roleplays, and for the most part have participated in 1x1 roleplays only with one person until lately (the person mentioned had a lot of capital and chancy ideas, so it was really hard to maintain interest in...

    Experiences Did You Ever Complete a Roleplay?

    Very nice to both of you! Those are quite the achievements, especially if the completed one is a group roleplay which have, in my opinion, far more unlikely odds of survival. Mine was also a group roleplay (I was a player, not the host), and we kept half of the original cast as a core of...

    Experiences Did You Ever Complete a Roleplay?

    This has been nagging at the back of my mind for a while now, but as the title queries I was curious if many of you have completed a roleplay, or at the very least reached a milestone event where you and everyone was satisfied with leaving things off for a sequel. Roleplays can last a very long...

    Advice/Help Post Orders?

    I will admit that I have seen pretty good conversations happen as collaborative posts written via PM, mostly as conversations during transitions of scenes, and participated in some of them. That is true as well about good communication resolving a lot of woes. I think I will give having a...

    Advice/Help Post Orders?

    I have seen posting order in action several times and can say that I am not too pleased with much of them for the same reason each time: it hangs up the possibility for natural development of characters. Five posts each of shorter nature between two people can build relations far better than...

    Experiences Taking other people's plots as your own

    I am with a fair number of people that, since it is public, it is okay to imitate or copy a plot, but I personally would credit the original concept or inspired individual. To me, what it sounds like is an alteration of maybe not plot but GM perspective, which can be rude or can not be...
