Re: What's up with this site lately, and how can we fix it??

Lonesome Butterfly, your writing is so much more erudite than mine, I am almost ashamed, especially with your ability to grab onto the points the rest of us are making here. I find myself compelled to continue this by pointing out how much I agree with certain of your points, and how little I concur...

Re: What's up with this site lately, and how can we fix it??

(quote) but a slice-of-life RP could go on and on and on for years with new people and stories popping up in locations all over the globe. So yeah, just a thought... (unquote) Now, if a thing like that got going, I think I'd be jumping with delight. I think it would restore my love for the art, and...

Re: What's up with this site lately, and how can we fix it??

Lonesome Butterfly: Totally agree about Kingdom RPs. I didn't want to mention any specific type of RP, but it was this kind of story I had in mind. re-reading my post I get the impression it might come over that I was slagging off at people who like vampire or high school games, but it wasn't really...

Re: My Life as a Supernatural Love Interest.

So are you playing Teddy, or one of the supernaturals?

Re: What's up with this site lately, and how can we fix it??

OK, I have been Rping for about 3 years. I first discovered it through this site, and for a time was really enthused. However, after a while my fascination dropped. Some of this is due to a disillusionment with the art in general, some are reasons specific to this site. This might ruffle a few feath...

Re: WARNING: Explicit Content Within!

Personally, I think censorship of so called "bad language' is ridiculous. If you are intelligent enough to have a hobby in which creative writing skills are required, then obviously you are mature enough to handle such things. Personally, I think a good rant of swearing is very entertaining. Fu...

Re: Edith Hawksworth Boarding School

Just submitted a character and realised I forgot to include history and personality. Sorry - been away from RPG a long time :^( OK, History - recent bad love affair at special school for mutants. Transferred at advice of guidance officer. Personality: Very mercurial. Seems self-effacing, but given t...

Re: Cirque Des Réve

Yeah, let's hope that this doesn't go the way of so many great RPS - or at least, not quite so soon!

Re: Thank you roleplaygateway

It's never easy to admit you are fighting depression, or to say thanks to those that help you. Even with a hobby as fascinating as RP to zing you up, beating the condition is never easy. Man, you are a total class act!

Hope you'll accept my total salutations!

Re: WWII Group RP

...whereas I see ground forces being more likely to die than to retreat time and time again from the Allied forces. That would depend upon the time it was set. Any time before 1942, the Wermacht forces would probably be advancing! Anyway, this idea sounds intriguing... I'm in if it gets off the gro...

Re: All Roads: The Journey

i have to admit, I didn't really think Moonie's situation through in a medical sense - I just had a general idea that "her brains got fried by the sun" - a situation that in Australia we call "going troppo"... Retrofitting things, and given that Dandy tends to temporarily fix her...

Re: All Roads: The Journey

Just to let everyone know I am still interested. My stay away turned out to be longer than expected, and right now I am just mnaking a brief home stopover, and checking in. Aeroron, I'd appreciate an email telling me current state of play - is the RP still active or not? Me, I'm in regardless, and s...

Re: Depression roleplay

WJ, please do pm me when you get this started - I think it could be a great RP. I'm probably not the best person to come to for GM advice since I only ever hosted one game (not at this site) in my RP career, and the results were somewhat disappointing. However, I'll gladly help out any way I can. Si...

Re: Depression roleplay

WaltJ, i have seen quite a few Rps about mental health of various kinds on this site and others, and few of them seemed to last. I guess this is for two reasons... one of them is that the initial subject is kind of depressing, and people tend to want to RP to escape the bad parts of life, not get mo...

Re: Locked Out, or In?

Team, I owe everone an apology for being so long delayed with my first post, which came about through a combination of circumstances. Firstly, the opening development of the plot arc suggested I keep Citizen Bristow-Hazeldene offstage while the rebel protaganists were introduced. Then, I had to make...

Re: Locked Out, or In?

Mac, thanks for the help, but I didn't make myself clear. I know how to technically edit, I meant that my character lacks a certain something, and I'm not sure what I can do to fix her.
