RPG's?
Is there anyone that would be interested in them? I mean like text based RPG's. It's kind of like the Create Our Own Story thread in the General Discussion, only everyone would control their own separate characters.

Here's an example from a Walking Dead RPG I used to be a part of:

Liam;

Liam sped down the highway, swerving between wrecked cars and a mixed assortment of dead bodies and dead walkers, on his practically mint Harley. He had swiped it from a guy back in Chicago. Poor sap didn't even hear the walker coming. He probably could have saved him, but it would have caused him more trouble with having to off him himself. Besides, he got the sweet ride out of it. But that was months ago, and that was still weighing in on his conscious. Why the hell hadn't he forgotten about it yet. Those were normal world problems, and this was anything but a normal world. The was a world ravaged by monstrous, hell-bound, creatures who feed on the living making more and more until there was no more. They'd taken everything he'd ever loved from him. His mom. His dad. His girl... That was a painful one. But he learned to cope with the fact that nothing was forever. Speaking of coping, this was a chance to practice his favorite method. He slowed his bike down to an idle and shut it down. He took his machete from his back where it hung from a leather strap he attached to it. Just up ahead was a walker. He snuck up to it as quietly as possible and, to his surprise, it didn't notice him. He held the machete backwards and put the blade to the walker's throat, hold the end of the blade with his left hand. It swung madly at him, foaming at the mouth with fury.
------------
"Go to hell." Liam practically spit into it's ear.
------------
He yanked the blade toward him and through the walker's throat. It decapitated with much resistance, causing the head to roll and bounce on the ground. Liam went back to his Hog and went down the highway into the city of Atlanta.



So, it would be quality narrative and story telling. Would anyone actually go for this kind of thing and stick with it, like posting as often as possible when in a situation with another character as to not make the other person's character static? A good example of a good RPG forum is Caw.ws. It's a popular WWE forum site that I used to visit. Most of their RPG's are wrestling ones, but there are a few original ideas. Here's a link to it if you'd like to see what it's all about: http://caws.ws/forum/forum/56-role-playing-games/

RE: RPG's?
I'm taking part of a RPG on another forum that is situated on the Fallout universe. I would enjoy playing another RPG, but we'd have to decide fi we're gonna follow the rules (like dice rolling, etc.) or if we're going to do something more freely (which I don't really like as it may go on forever and it takes out some of the immersion I'd say).

I don't know much about the rules, but there's probably someone out there that may know about it.

It'd be more like you write your own story. No dice or anything like that, just a story that you control and in which you can tie into other peoples stories.

Could be a nice idea I guess. But that means that your character is immortal...

No, you could kill off your character at any point. It's all up to the imagination.

So we can basically start at any given time?

RE: RPG's?
Well, my idea is to give it it's own sub forum. Essentially, anyone could create their own topic, each topic would be a different theme. Like there could be a zombie apocalypse one, maybe just a high school one(sounds kinda lame, but they're actually pretty fun), or even one based off the Marvel universe. the possibilities are endless. The only thing is that we need people that would actually participate, and so far, we've got 3.
