What is the plot?
Remind Me Who I Was: Stand By Me has no plot, per say. It is an interactive role play in which the characters create the problems, solutions, relationships, and overall story line . Our characters are basically living life, and something like that just isn't premeditated...no matter how hard we try to make it.

This is a "part two" of Scarlett's role play "Stand By Me". She is the Co-GM.


How should I make my character?
Your character is in high school. In your profile make them between 15-18, but remember to add a section regarding their childhood. We know some of you were not apart of Stand by Me, but we still want to see how your character has changed :)

All relationships (of any kind) will be decided in the OOC, so please, only put information about your character in your sheet


Where does this role play take place?
In a small town in the US. Where exactly? Well, that's for us to decide in the OOC before we get things started!

Will this be limited?
As much as it pains me to do so, yes, this role play will have a limit on players accepted. Although you can create however many characters you are able to handle, I just can't have too many different thoughts and ideas going into this. I have to ensure my dedicated role players are receiving the attention and responses they deserve.

I will allow a maximum of eight role players at this time.


How will you accept players?
This is the most important process, and yes, I can be picky when selecting. I will choose my role players on the bases of four categories:
Literacy. I can not stress this enough. I am extremely tired of reading short and choppy sentences. Not everyone can write five-eight paragraph responses, and that is perfectly fine, but I promise you, it is possible to write an amazing post with a minimal of three paragraphs if you know how.

* Commitment. It doesn't matter how many role players I have, everyone plays an important part. I beg you, if you join this role play, stick it out through the end...or at least tell us if you will no longer participate.

And yes, I will be looking to see if you are active in the OOC

*Willingness to come up with ideas of your own within reason. Do not play your character(s) off of another. Be creative.

*Imagination. That pretty much speaks for itself.

Lastly, incomplete profiles that are submitted will not be accepted...there will be no exceptions. Mine is incomplete, but I was forced to based on the need to create one in a hast to post another thread :)


Will there be limits to what can happen?
Of course. Your character can not be the center of attention at all time, nor can they be "perfect". This is life, let's keep things realistic. I know bad things happen, but please do not make your character a sob story.

Is romance a factor in this role play?
I'm sure romances will work their way into a plot, but once again keep it realistic. I urge dating among the group, as well as outsiders. There is no "forever" from childhood til death, at least not in this role play.

They will be break ups, betrayal, love triangles...or squares, and anything else you can think of. Do not have a fit if your "love interest" moves on to another sometimes or just ends things. THIS IS ABOUT LIFE and it does happen

As for profiles: We want to see creativity. There is no guide, so go crazy! The more the better!

Why wasn't my character accepted? Just not appropriate for the roleplay? Or was it not written well enough?
Realize the impotence of proof reading everything you publish.

Wednesday, haha

Well I have the approved names but they will not be added to the role play until tomorrow on account of Hero being away _-_

Everyone: Take this time to tweak your profiles! PM me if you wish to know your status. I won't be making it public.

As for my accepted role player: Lets see you in the OOC :D
