Alright, I was thinking we could have some fun roleplay here. This is my first time doing this, as I'm sure it is for many of you, so we'll do our best I guess! I'll be keeping this very open-ended to cater to all tastes. (The rules will be covered later on in this post.)
Yesterday, you were living your life as usual. This morning, however, you have woken up in a strange hospital room along with, as you will soon find out, a bunch of other people and other creatures from all walks of the universe. Your direction is lost, and the only thing that is clear is that you are the only sane survivors in a post apocalyptic wasteland. As you move along and try to find a way home with the others, you'll find out more and more about the mystery.
So if you want to join, you will need a Character. The guidelines for character selection or creation are very large - you can be any fictional character you want, from any TV show, movie book, comic, etc. Though there are a few boundaries that must be set:
-Your chosen or made up character shouldn't be unfairly overpowered. I will be the ultimate judge on if a character is too overpowered, but just use common sense and you should be fine.
-Your character must not be an antagonist while roleplaying. What I mean is, your character cannot be the main force against the players. Of course there will be conflict with the characters, but evil must not be your character's main motive. All of the characters have the same goal: to survive and make it home.
As long as your character meets these guidelines, I don't really care who you choose to be. Hell, you can be Barbie if you watch that and know the character well, but try to stay serious and in-character throughout the roleplay.
Feel free to create your own character if you like, but be sure to add details on them. Not too many details, though, as you want to leave room for character growth.
Character selection form:
-Where your character is from (only applicable if roleplaying a non-original character)
-Some details on the character. Just a little appearance summary or picture so people who don't know what your character is can invision them.
I'll try to keep this pretty layed back, but there are a few rules I must lay down to keep things organized.
-STAY IN CHARACTER when roleplaying. This is an absolute must. You must know your character well and how they would react in certain situations. If you are playing as an original character, try not to make them too crazy or goofy.
-When you are roleplaying, make your text a different color from when you are talking out of character. Example:
...Holding her blanket tightly to her chest, Susan tiptoed across her dark room and gazed down the hallway...
I will be in the mountains for the weekend so I won't be able to post.
-Don't god mod. This means controlling other people's characters, being unfair in conflicts, or other general asshatery.
-When posting your character, put "roleplay" at the end of your post so I know you read everything.
-Just use common sense in general.
Alright. So once we have all of our players joined the game will start. Please, if you have any advice please do give it. This is my first time doing roleplay, let alone hosting one, so I'm sure I messed up on something. Any questions also ask here.
