Just curious as to who here is interested in this type of text-based roleplaying.

I used to do it quite a lot back in the day, it's a lot of fun! Kinda let down that i never saw it pickup on the STO forums.

I seem to remember that someone actually had a thread started... But then he posted a "I quit" post, and the RP thread died...

Me for one... na... I can't do it.

We used to have a very popular RPG thread in this very Ten Forward board. Lol, none of us have figured out what made it so popular (got up to 535 pages).

The ol' IC thread: http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...ighlight=Karma

Its got a link to the OOC thread in the first post, so I won't include a link to that here.

There were also other RPG threads, but they all died rather quickly. Hmm, makes me think....I have a 'traditional' 'for fun' thread I usually post on the forums I frequent.....I think I'll post a copy here too.

Edit: My little RP: http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...d.php?t=241130

Well there are plenty of RP fleets out there, my own included, but I can't recall seeing RP by post before. But then again, I wasn't looking either. Sounds interesting enough.

Lol, have fun.

Quick note about the 'ol 'Bar And Grill' type RP I started: You can throw continuity out the window, lol. I've seen previous incarnations have tank battles come rumbling through (one even had a full Q-vs-Q fight), yet it was like nothing had happened in the end....if that makes any sense.

I run a Fallout-themed one over at Fallout: Apocalyptika.

I have my own off-site RP forums as well...just wasn't sure about advertising rules in regards to posting the link.

Right now, they are silent due to needing members. RP wise, there are 3: a 'kaiju wars' type deal (ala, Godzilla and other giant monsters, customs included), a sci-fi faction based RP (ala, 4XRTS with diplomacy, war, and the rest of the whole kit and kaboodle) where you can be based on a canon faction (Examples: Babylon 5's Earth Alliance, Star Trek's United Federation Of Planets, Star Wars's Galactic Empire, Farscape's Peacekeepers, Warhammer 40,000's Tau, et cetera) or a custom design of your own (its currently set up so that each RPer keeps each other in check to prevent god-modding in terms of ships (like a fighter with a Death Star grade super laser, for example...I've seen that tried once), number ****s, unfounded 'deus ex machina' moments, et cetera (though, some leeway is given for story and plot events), and a third that, well, currently is in limbo as I try to figure out what I'm going to do with it (its already gone through so many 'what do I want this to be' periods I just don't know anymore, lol).

Sorry, got a bit rambly. Lol, its been so long since I had any activity on my forums, I tend to get a little talkative when I talk about my RPGs there.
