PostSubject: Telling the story...   Sun Apr 28, 2013 9:37 am

Hi guys... Just wanted to say I really enjoyed the roleplay last night - had to ditch early as after 3 hrs of gaming its 2AM here and my brain starts to melt... Wasn't sure what was going on half the time but had a good laugh and definitely enjoyed the change from just randomly running around shooting stuff.

What I wanted to suggest was a thread where the bare bones of the 'story so far' and 'what happened last night' can be posted so we have a general idea of story line, plot developments and what sort of direction to go in next.

It doesn't have to be an essay, just a guideline or bullet points so we can find our place in the story - especially if, like me, you can't be on every session.

I really like the' telling a story' and character development aspect of roleplaying, (which I will be trying to do with my characters in the character creation thread - sorry if you have read them that they are a bit long!), and discussing what happened, why, and what this can lead to on the forum out of character could help you find a place to fit yourself into when in character.

While the improv stuff is awesome - and was the stuff that had me laughing last night - there were a couple of points I didn't have a clue what was going on. Which helped in one sense as my character was supposed to be new in town and confused, but might be frustrating long term if there is no framework at all.

Also, this might help recruiting new members - they could come on here and see what the 'Story so far....' is, and create characters accordingly - obviously having a cool story people want to get involved in will be a better hook as well.

Great suggestions, I'm in the process of doing some of this already and I'm thinking of doing the bare-bones story of the roleplay so far in a newspaper form where we'll have a obituary and other general news on who's buying what etc.

Glad to know you enjoyed the roleplay, I'm Truth Ride (founder with Troll) and I don't think we've met but I thought you're character background was amazing and nothing is too long so good luck in the roleplay
