How It Works
« on: Wed Sep 14, 2011 - 11:11:48 »
RPG (Role Playing Game):

In summary, a RPG is where players create their own characters and play them in a universe/world, according to post rules to make up a story. If a world is already set up by a member or the forum than the characters are to be played according to the culture, location and history set down in the world.

Movies and Books

In the case of this RPG Movies and Books subforum, a poster will assume the culture, story and characters of a movie or book. In this way the story of the movie/book can continue and grow based on the imaginations of forum members.

As with all games/stories, each character will need a profile in the RPG Character Forum/Database so that the character can be linked to from the original post of the story and in other areas where it would help another player or reader to know the character.

To Start A Movie or Book RPG

Start a new thread with the name of the movie or book. As you tell the story, link to each character that is mentioned.

After your initial post, another member may contribute to the story.


- Play by post rule: you must play by post, meaning when A finishes a post, B is to respond by making his own post. Everyone takes a turn in posting; this is mainly because of the fact that A has to watch for B’s move and vice versa (and with additional posters).

- Control of other players’ characters are permitted, but only minimal control is allowed, exception would be when the players grant you total control, or when the players abandon their characters.

Example: poor control:
Kaylith jumped over a log to Salinea’s rescue, relief flooded through her at the sight of him and she fainted as the creature turned around at his yell, ready to face a more dangerous foe.

Good control:
Kaylith jumped over a log to Salinea’s rescue, he had a glimpse of her relieved face before the creature turned around at his yell, ready to face a more dangerous foe.

Note: never control other players' characters to the extent that result in changes of their personalities. In here, Salinea was a strong girl, and she would not have fainted.

- The number of characters is not restricted.
