Yeah… yeah, you read it right. I’m comin’ at you again with another Forum RP Thread TM. My last one went insanely well, but died off earlier this year, as all things eventually do. So I took a break, developed some new stories alongside my existing ones, found myself in the mood to RP again, and. Well, here we are.
I’m pretty sure y’all know the rules for these things by now, but in case you don’t, here they are:
1. No controlling other players’ characters without their permission. Think of it as having your character complete an action, and then passing the baton off to the group to have their characters react to said action.
2. No killing other players’ characters without their permission. I feel like this should go without saying, and it also kinda ties into the first rule, but I figured I’d write it in anyway. Unless you have explicit written permission from another RP’er to have your character kill theirs, let’s try and keep murder off the table, m’kay?
3. If you’re responding to multiple players, please don’t spam the thread with multiple responses all at once. Instead, tag everyone you’re responding to in one post, and then separate each person’s response accordingly.
4. Literally just be a decent RP’er and person. It’s not that hard, y’all. Occasionally having your character make jokes at another character’s expense is alright if the receiving party is cool with it, and so is having a character who’s canonically a bit of a jerk. And hell, we all make mistakes. If you make a few honest mistakes, are corrected on them, and work to make sure they don’t happen again, good on you. But repeated nasty/creepy/unforgivable behavior from you and/or your characters will result in a strike. I’m assuming you know how strikes in baseball work, and the same applies here; if you receive three strikes, you’ll be removed from the RP.
Alright, now that that’s out of the way, let’s get into characters. If you’d like to join, drop a bio for each of your characters down below, and I’ll add ‘em here for players to reference!
