I thought Iíd start a role playing game as I have played a few and thought maybe if people wanted I could have one playing so people donít miss out on that other one. I have a few rules which are mainly common sense and to keep the game on track anyway my basic rules are.

1: No fighting and no taking attacks in-game as personal attacks just remember a character arguing with a character is not an argument between you the players.
2: What I say is final BUT if I have clearly misread an action send a private message to me as soon as you can so I might try to rectify the issue.
3: The game world is similar to say Final Fantasy VII in forms of characters, abilities, magic, technology and magitek.
4: Try to remain in character at all times if it seems odd to me I will ask the player what made something happen and also players donít send me private messages regarding this if something seems off to you and I am doing nothing it may very well be character information that was kept private.
5: I will deal with characters that are using player knowledge over character knowledge for the same above reasons as some information may not be revealed to all players so no sending private messages saying Steve did this so he could save Mary but how did Steve know, he cheated.
6: An advancement/mod post will be made every second day unless specified, no posts by a person within that time frame the character will be placed in a defensive stance or do nothing that turn this is waved for those that tell me prior with a reason.
7: Your character dies youíre out, Iím sorry but death is inevitable but there may be plot points for revival.
8: Try to post more then just a sentence, please.
9: If you must try create romance keep it PG as I am unsure on the limits this board enforces.
10: No guaranteed moves/actions from your posts as I decide what succeeds and fails, sorry.
11: Rule of Cool: If it's awesome and it makes the story even better, it's allowed so long as it moves the story forward and isn't outright power-playing.

Post format is to be done like this:

Shana looks at the rules and is unsure if that is everything but it looks ok, for now.

ďURUSAI! URUSAI! URUSAI!Ē

She yells repeatedly as she knows some people are not paying attention and feel they can do as they wish.


Action: Yelled at the readers to shut up.

~Is this an easy to understand format?~


End example.

I want any out of character stuff to be at the bottom of a post and to be surrounded by ~ on both sides. Speech is to be coloured and as a person confirms participation and character name they can also call a colour name as I would like them not to conflict for speech just makes things a little simpler and before calling a colour name make sure it works in the brackets please.


I will be typing up a character creation sheet with which I will private message those who want to participate and if the sheet is too complex please tell me and I will see if it can be made simpler.

Iíll be limiting to 8 players, sorry about that but it would be about all I can handle.


Confirmed Players:
satsuyumi
Gothic_Pepsi
The Tragic Man
Darth Tallis
Tsubame Asakura

Walks into the thread and cracks her knuckles

I'd be happy to help out and join, especially since the other rp looked way too complicated with D&D rules or whatever @_@

So, count me in please :3

Dives into thread after putting his best Nagato wizard outfit on.

I will also partake in this event, as I am required to observe the biological unit known as Satsuyumi, as she is the center of an anomaly of data that is essential to universal balance.


Razz Very Happy

Added a few more rules I thought should be put in place and also once the game has started feel free to private message me further character information as long as it doesn't contradict your older information.

I'd also appreciate hearing any feedback, ideas or criticism you may have but try not to sound insulting, please.

Halfway there for the player count now.

Sorry about the lack of image on my character sheet. I forgot, then when you reminded me, I went looking for an image. I now have two images I want to merge. It may be a while before I can provide a finished piccy. Look in the avatar image thread if you think you can help.

EDIT - Nevermind. I was trying to link to a specific post.

All I see is a little icon in the corner of the page.

I did have a look in the avatar section, though. Razz

I see what I did. I copied image location rather than link location. This is the correct link.

I see you're not writing in pink now.

It's just a thought, but does it need to be eight players? The spots aren't filling up very quickly. Could you just start with five, then add others as they decide to join?

Just a thought.

I suppose I will, I was just kind of hoping to get all introductions out of the way so I suppose either tomorrow or at the latest Monday I should have this started.

A nicely done opening Shana, just I have a quick question on something before I post. Each of the character's openings are left open ended, so it's just a little confusing at the moment on where everyone is.

So, everyone is in the dark tunnel now, and Rin is with Meredith, right? ^^;

Sorry about that >.<

Quick rundown all are in the tunnel, Rin is with Meredith all other copies are gone, Shiki sees Rin and Meredith the others can move forward and see them as well this mod although Raven is questionable in his inebriated state.

Again, I'm sorry for this.


~Edit~
I also left it open so you'd decide their actions, I am now thinking I cut at a bad point my mistake.

Yeah, the way Meredith's story opened left me clueless at what I'm supposed to make her do. Is she supposed to pick a direction? Meredith s supposed to be folling Rin to whatever the promised "secret" is. Also, they apparently bumped into someone. What sort of someone? A random stranger? Is Meredith supposed to know who it is? One of the other PCs?

Asyou can see, I pretty much just retold the opening. Just a note, youre just supposed to tell us what we see/hear/sense, not to control the character. To be honest, as I created her, I'm doubtful Meredith would have acted exactly as described in the opening.

EDIT - I'm not trying to tell you how to run this, it's just a bit of definition between DM/GM/whatever terminology you preer, and the PCs.
