Hey guys! Before I go back to the RP forums, I have some questions! (Because I don’t want to let more RPs die D:). Please help me answer these broad categories.
Forums or Discord?
Both Discord and Discourse have their pros and cons. What are everyone’s preferences? Please state why as well.
Time Preferences? Pace Preference?
People live in different parts of the Earth, having their own timezones and more.
Some complain that the RPs go too fast, and they miss out on the action, and thus their character is stuck in this awkward situation that they don’t know how to come back into the picture.
But if left too long, gamemaster goes inactive, It’ll end like another RP Disaster. [Lookie me.]
So I want to get everyone’s preferences on these 2 major things, lest we churn rainbows out of our blood.
Paces include One-shot (Kablam 4 hours), Short-term (2 to 4 days), Middling…(1 week to 3.) Long-term (Millions of years… you get it.).
Topic Preferences, Story Progression.
Suggestions, please! School? Fantasy? Detective? There’s so much more!
For Story Progression, there is a PM version that I’m working on, and would anyone want to try?
Also, would you prefer a rigid story progression (inflexible unchangeable outcomes, headache for players and frustration…?) or a flexible one (more chaotic, more headache for GMs).
This can only be done if a bot is made for it. (I still feel the horrors of managing 7 people at once) Do you want such a bot to be in our forums? And would you approve of statistics in an RP?
To what extent would you include the statistics? Do you have any suggestions for statistics to be included in an RP?
What are your preferences? Dark? Light? Comedic? Serious?
I prefer light comedy.
Don da yo!
Amount of Gamemasters
More than 1? Or just 1? What would you want to see from them? List your expectations from a Gamemaster.
This is your preference. What type of characters would you prefer to play?
What would you think of the alignment system?
What type of personalities would you like to see in future RPs?
The flippant drunk shouldn’t always be the smartest and strongest one. The ordinary does not mean that they are hiding the biggest, most obvious secret in the world. Neither will the dubbed “one” be the best person in the world.
