    Anyone else? If there's a demand I'd be happy to set it up. however, I'd need someone to take charge... as I have little RP experience.

    Online games are tough to run. There's an online forum, here, for D&D players, that I'm trying to get involved with. They've got online dice rollers and everything.

    I love the genre and would definitely be game to read/crit any materials put together. But I probably wouldn't be submitting much more than that :(

    I'm an extremely experienced RPG player. I have participated in a very popular Resident Evil RPG before on a site called EvilUnleashed. I would love to have something like that be able to be used on the site. I could probably moderate it, if we do ever have one.

    Uh...I wasn't talking about any high RPGing, all I meant was to put up a writing/RP forum. People could just come up with a storyline and people from the site could build a char. and bring 'em in to the story.

    Basically we'd all be writing one big story. It's fun because not only are we all doing it together, but we can also try and write each other's characters.

    Okay, so let me make sure I'm comprehending this:

    Basically in this RPG anyone can enter and create a character that interacts with other characters. This doesn't have a set theme (like a particular movie) but is simply a plot in development.

    Is this correct?

    If that's the case, are we aiming just for fun? If not, what will keep it from simply becoming, well, without a real plot? (say, silly or dumb).

    yep, that's right. Just for fun. You can add in your own plot. Just think about the story and your character. Have a plan for what you'd like your character to do and where you want it to go. Also you can hint towards different areas you want the story to go to.

    Trust me, these things can be really fun if you have the right kind of story line and characters. I'll set one up right now, bitch.

    What's you're problem you wanna go? Just name the time and place and I'll be there with a fist full of shit some vaseline and a zuuchini.

    Hehe, jus' kidding- but really, I have those things.

    Yes, they are for fun but since this is a writing forum, you can interact with everyone else and their own writing and you can probably get better as you write through them and your character developing and plot developing skills may get better as you go along as well.

    What the hell?

    And yeah, I've been involved in a few RP's. They're cool, but only when they're ofa genre I like to write. I can't participate in Fantasy RP's.

    Well, another way we can do that is create a seperate place for just RPGs and make different categories for different genres of RPG's. That way it can satisify everyone's tastes, whatever they are.

    I prefer Fantasy myself however.

    Only three peple have voted...out of how many people? That'll suck if nobody wants to join in on these things. Mixing the different styles of writing is half the fun.

    And, yeah, I agree about Fantasy Role playing. I wouldn't be able to participate in those either. Just like I could never do D&D.

    Well I've had a go at it once before, I really enjoyed it and i'm definately interested in giving it ago again. I would say breaking it up into genres is a good idea, not everyone is into the same thing. The only way to know if something is going to work is to give it a go, otherwise you will never know.

    Ok 7 people have said they are all for it is that enough yet?

    Maybe if we ignore the number of people and look at the PERCENTAGE it would look better. hehehe :):)

    I'm not a huge fan of RPGs, so I probably wouldn't participate. Nevertheless, most other writing forums I have been on have a forum for RPGs, and I'm sure it'd get used, having looked at the general response of this thread.

    I voted 'yes.'

    nine people, hehn...that's probably still not enough to open up a section for it...I think we at least have to hit the double digits.

    Hopefully something happens.
