[OOC] Dear Reader...

This is, as it says in the title, the Out of Character topic for my roleplay 'Dear Reader'. Here, I'll just jot down a few of the notes I made in the roleplay's actual introduction.

First of all, I don't expect a lot from you - by that, I mean that all I want is for you to have fun whilst at the same time keeping up a standard that's good for you and adds to the roleplay. I neither want nor need tens of posts a day. I would, however, like posts that can be replied to once the character interaction begins.

Secondly... I had a list of 'rules' that were basically me telling you all to use your common sense and obey the rules of decency and kindness expected all over the site. Unfortunately, RPG decided not to add them to my roleplay and instead said I'd created no rules. Simply put, behave yourselves or you'll end up banned. Easy peasy, eh?

Finally, this is a realistic RP. I do not want angels, devils, demons, cat-people, dog-people, werewolves, vampires or aliens in this roleplay. I have nothing against those who want to play such characters - I myself have played a few of them - but this roleplay will not work if I have people pulling powers out their arses when things don't quite go their way. Do not expect happy endings for every single character in this roleplay.

That being said, thank you so much for reading this far. I hope that, if you're interested, you'll submit a character or ask any questions you may have after reading both this post and the introduction on the roleplay tab.

Thanks again,


Cloasse

For those of you who have been accepted - how many characters would you like to start this with? I'm personally thinking that a smaller group of players would work much better with this type of roleplay. I am, however, always open to opinion.

Thanks for all your interest and thanks to those who submitted characters!

First, thank you for accepting my character, Cloasse. I look forward to interacting with everyone. Personally I enjoy smaller groups more. I find smaller groups easier to manage.

I think between five and eight characters would be ideal, possibly not including 'affiliated' characters that are there because someone they know received a letter (e.g., Daniel).

Since someone is going off to do special things next week, how available is everyone else and are you all quite happy to wait another week before we start? I figure that I could use the next week to outline how the majority of roleplay from my character, Sender, will be occurring and how exactly you lot will have your characters meet up. It may very well be a little slow to start up since everyone will be posting as an individual. Hopefully it'll pick up as soon as the characters meet up.

I'm in the middle of doing renovations to my house and won't be available until Monday late night (EST time). I can start any time after that, but if you want to wait the week to prepare I'm good with that too.

Okay, folks. Time for some serious talky-talk.

First off, I think we will start next week. Now, that's not to say that you can't do anything related to this roleplay in the meantime. You could, if you wanted to, start your first post. Your first post requires no one else's influence bar mine and I can do that through the correspondence page. This initial post will be your character receiving their first two letters - that is, the letter that you read on the introduction page, although I may be adding to/taking away from the contents of these letters, so don't go ahead and start writing until I've posted on the other OOC page. I'll make another note here and even PM those who haven't been involved in this thread just so that you're all aware of this.

Secondly, and I've mentioned this several times, I will not be expecting massive posts every single day. At the very most, I think I'll want three quality posts a week. It's quite likely I'll only want two. This depends, again as I've said before, on how frequently you lot want to post and on how long this roleplay lasts. I'll be starting university in September and I know that Script is going to be returning to school soon too. I've no doubt that the rest of you are all busy too! So, I'm just going to leave it that, as far as roleplays go, this will not be a roleplay where you're harassed by posts unless it is absolutely necessary that you post after more than a week of silence from you. Please note that, if you choose to ignore PMs and requests to post, your character won't just 'disappear' - they'll be killed off in one post from me.

Until next Monday, I'm planning on keeping the roleplay open to any more character submissions. Please do tell your friends and other roleplayers you know about this if you think they'd enjoy this roleplay. If no one else joins, I think we'll get by fine without them.

Thank you so, so much for helping to make this a valid venture,


Cloasse

Re: [OOC] Dear Reader...

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Cloasse on Sun Jul 31, 2011 1:14 pm

Posting will begin tomorrow, Monday the 1 August 2011! Wherever you are, Monday is when the posting starts. Rather than confusing folks with the whole 'this is the time in my country, you work out the time in your country', I think we can stick to just posting on certain days. If this were a chat roleplay or a roleplay that I wanted to move daily, then it may be a different story, but all that's necessary is a post or two a week.

So, check out the other OOC thread with the first letter and write up your character's response to receiving it. After everyone has posted their responses, I'll be writing another post in the Correspondence thread. From there, things should start to move into the action side of things.

Thank you all so much for hanging around and submitting your wonderful characters! As ever, if there are any problems, PM me, drop us a note here or find me in the Out of Character chat.

Due to a few roleplayers telling me that they prefer posting on the forums as opposed to this tab, I've created a new topic for you all to post to.

Click here for the Dear Reader IC.

Enjoy yourselves! Posting has officially started since Script started us off!
