We can continue Sky's thread here, for those who still wish to discuss how we RP, rules, guidelines, etc.

I know sky mentioned two types of RPs but I do feel however that there is a third type worth mentioning

Semi-Plotted RP: An RP with some set events and a planned-out ending but allows for smaller sub-plots to be created and played out by any participant.

Example: Fading Hope: 20 Weeks

A middle ground. Yeah, that makes sense.

Another nice thing to define might be the types of DMs, and what kind of DM is the best kind.

That is more a matter of personal opinion... We don't want to become a bunch of fascists who only accept 'the pure breed'  Maybe i'm overreacting a bit, but i really hate being pigeonholed or being plastered with 'names'

I don't necessarily mean a best way to GM. Everyone has their preferences. I just mean that it might be nice to have a list of things that are generally good to do, and things to generally avoid. I just worded it badly >_> my apologies.

It's okay, i'm just a bit sensitive to that.  Anyway... somthing gives me the feeling that very few of you have read through all the pinned topics at the top of the page.  They are very informative on how to be a good DM and what to avoid.

Well shucks, i just can't live up to half the words that fall out my mouth.  I'm back, and as inconsistent as ever.  In fact, you could basically say that i never left to begin with.

OKAY, so now that that's cleared up, i have a question.  Normally i just come up with half baked ideas and paste posters for them all over the walls for you to gawk at.  I'm hoping to stop that.  I have a few ideas floatin around in my fishbowl, and i want some opinions on what sounds promising, and what does not.  I'll then chose one of em and do some focused planning on it for a week or two, so there is an actual movie, and a decent one, not just a preview.  here are a few of my better ideas.

Ye Ol' West RP, but with my signature cynical touch.  Have a half-baked plot that needs additional cooking.


Something apocalyptic, but in a non-traditional format.  Got a few ideas for this.


An investigation/crime scene sort of RP, kinda like Bones, or The X-Files.  I got plenty of ideas for this one, just need to iron em into place.


I also plan on avoiding one of my bigger mistakes, which is not explaining the rules completely until the last second
If anyone else has something to add, or an idea of their own, go ahead and put it out there.
So please, if anyone has any input or interest, let me know.

We've got a couple things running. Damocles is happening, as is the moon one. And utterly incompetent adventures is starting to get rolling. But all the same, I could always use more RP in my life. Out of the three thingies that you listed, I'd cast my ballot in for the apocalyptic one. You know how much I love a good apocalypse. Although at the same time, if you can do it right, the investigative one sounds pretty amazing. Hmm, dunno.

Alright then, i'll take that one off the list.  Here are the current options.

Something apocalyptic,
but in a non-traditional format.  Got a few ideas for this.

An investigation/crime scene sort of RP, kinda like Bones, or The X-Files.  I got plenty of ideas for this one, just need to iron em into place.

Pit fighting, Season 3,
Already started reworking this one.  This time around it will be more pit fights and logical combat scenarios, fewer mazes and tortured memories, and less of the just plain unnecessary and horrid things that come out of the darker corners of my mind.

Once we have an answer, i'll get to work on really planning things out for the first time in my life.  This should result in a more enjoyable RP.  Regardless, don't expect anything to be starting any time soon.

If i don't get any votes, i'm doing the pit fights. i did a significant chunk of work, actual WRITTEN work last night (as opposed to mental work)

Sounds more like some sort of crime scene... I'll put your vote in for the investigatory RP! :D

And when i say classic, i mean they aren't even zombies, just people dressed up like zombies.

the crime one does sound interesting. you could even do it in episodes. when one murder gets solved, you could start another episode. my vote goes to the crime-scene one.

I like the detective one too, it could be like LA Noire or perhaps Heavy Rain so i'll vote up the crime one with pit fights as my second choice.
