thumbsup.gif Ok sensible suggestions now people.. I know that it has long been an idea for an RPG group within the forum membership..Syko being vitually the main champion of this... thumbsup.gif

I have asked SaRuMaN to make it so that I can moderate the chat room if such an idea was to go ahead.

What I need from you is a sensible time that we can use the chat room, so I can change the topic when we are there.. so that people know what they are walking into.
Who would interested in doing this, what campaigns etc, who would want to Dm etc..

I will pin this and ask for sensible answers and questions.. Then we shall see...

We do what we do because of who we are. If we did otherwise, we would not be ourselves.

          If no on else wanted to I could Dm.  When ever me and my buds play an RPG I'm always the Dm, so I have experiance and a few old campaigns kicking around.  Could we do it in a D&D format?  Time is an issue for me, thats why I said if no one else wanted to.  If it's at a good time for me I would love to do it though.

           I think it would work better in the forum (under hobbies) than in a chat.  Also if a Dm leaves the thread another could just pick up were the other left off and make his own storie.

Man when did I become a champion?  tongue.gif  Ok I would preferr chat as a post game would eat up alot of bandwidth (something I have yet to have problems with at Ravens Keep [not a shamless plug!]) And I don't think our High Overwizard would be happy about that.

As long as we keep some order I think it would be ok to use the chatroom. the biggest issue would be how many players could we handle and if we would need "sub-DM's".



I would like to get that sorted before we decide on backdrop.


Oh and if you ar curious about Ravens Keep look here.

Bandwidth shouldn't be a problem, remember we're on our own dedicated server now with all the bandwidth we could ever need.

        So would it be alright to do it on the forum instead of the chat?  It seems to me it would be simpler on the forum.

To be real honest Play by post or play by e-mail is just a real turnoff to me. I find that it lacks the intensity that an rpg needs to be run correctly. (kinda close to those old play by mail games *BARF*)

It's up to everyone else though but I vote Chat.

          What about organizing the game on the forum, and at a posted time on the forum we RP on the chat?

chats are harder on the two finger typer-you miss alot when your looking at the keyboard.
-then u gotta read try and catch up & answer the people who are impatiently waiting on you.

then again, posts would be slow for every one , lagging the general rythm of the game

would like to see a D & D styled game though, of some sorts.......

In one experiment code-named GREEN RUN, radioactive iodine-131 was released from the Hanford Nuclear Facility and drifted over Spokane. The cloud contained hundreds of times as much radiation as was released accidentally at Three Mile Island in 1979.

    Celti I was just wondering if you are still planing on setting this up.
