I would like to start a more structured RPG. By that, I mean an RPG in which people wait a bit for others to post (for me, the post rate in most RPG's is way too high, causing me too lose overview of what's happening)... So, participants should sort of post in turn...

Your views?

I would have to agree with that. And sometimes the post rate is also too slow.

I'd like to join something like that but give people the ability to pass a turn or something like that. Just a suggestion.

I like the idea, but i've kinda gotta agree with Mad...

I find that i'm more often waiting for someone else to post after me, than having trouble keeping up.

But, as i said, i like the idea, and let me know when it happens.

Perhaps people should only post once a day per RPG? That way it gives the other people an entire day to catch up.
I find the time region problem extends to other areas of the forum as well, where you'd like to post - but by the time you read the thread or get time to post others have continued on and you get left behind.

Perhaps, people could post even less than once a day and take the time and trouble to write a long post that really adds to the storyline?

This idea isn't too bad Scath. If you wanted to, you could have a mod move the story line along, deciding what actions counted and what not.. but it seems TOO structured for this site and is used mainly for online gaming sites like swsimulation.com and swcombine.com.

If you want help though, let me know, I'll do what I can.

Nice to see you back, wormie. Anyway, I wouldn't want it to become too structured but I would like people to give eachother a chance to participate.

Thanks Scath, it's nice to be back :)

Your best bet for an RP wpuld be to have it so that you only post once per day, or once evry two days at most.. this would give everyone a chance to RP and still keep th story line moving at an even pace.

I was thinking along the same lines... However, it seems not enough people are interested in this notion, considering the reactions to this thread...

Interesting idea. I'd participate, depending on the topic...
However, with the Rapora Wars RPG up and running, I don't think this will go to far... :?

With regard to the setting of an RPG, I'm open to suggestions...

Why not an alternate to the Battle of Hoth.. we all know the basics of that battle, but this time it *might* end differently

Then again, I'm no fan of changing the story when it comes to the movies... :-(

Eh, the only setting that would convince me to join is some sort of space battle... :?
