Would you write in written roleplays? (Forum?)
I'm not even sure people do these anymore, but I cruise the web from time to time trying to find a good one. Figure it might be worth asking here though. Have you or would you play a written roleplay?

Anyone other than me do those as a kid/teen on avidgamers and places like that? Or was that just me? You know you go into the forum and all the headers are like this:

Modern Day - Plane Crash - Trapped on a Large Tropical Island - All Welcome
LOTR - Lost in Lothlorien - GMers be damned!
Western - Gunslingers in a Saloon - You owe me money

Those type of things?

I'm only suggesting a separate forum for two reasons. The first is that it is in the gaming forum description already, and the second is that it would keep things organized in terms of differentiating (via lovely, specific RP looking headers) between who would like to talk about console gaming and whatnot specifically, and who's writing a thread title looking to start a roleplay. So yeah, and I figure starting a poll would be a good way of instilling confidence in people who would want to actually try starting a story, instead of it just getting lost in the shuffle... ya know?

Forums rules would clearly apply and whatnot, along with the rules the OP sets up for the roleplay at the beginning. But, it would keep that area clean... hopefully. Blush

Apart from the cave troll that will, of course, stumble in from time to time. Dodgy

But yeah mods and others please let me know what you think if you'd like. Smile

And yeah...

RE: Would you write in written roleplays? (Forum?)
Oh yeah, and it's writing stories, where each person takes on a character (and brief, non-playables throughout the story like orcs, guards, or soldiers you want to slay and stuff,) and writes out a story together. The general rule is that you don't control the other writers' decisions for their characters. If you want to kill another person's character(s) or something, that's a decision you kind of just take to the side and discuss, (PM) and then come back and write it out.

But yeah it can be a lot of fun!

RE: A forum for written roleplay?
I would like to participate. Played RPGs as a kid and always loved fantasy, sci-fi, zombie, etc. My preference would be anything not too connected to reality (your example, modern day plane crash on an island...unless it's monster island).

Could try such I guess. Fantasy setting would be mt preference.
