It is 3.5 actually. So yeah 3rd edition. Screw 4th edition. And, um, I have no idea. We might make a separate thread for ooc and apps.

Oh thank goodness. I thought for a moment i was the only one shunning fourth edition. I'll iron out my character a bit more until the idea of applications is finalized, thank you ^^

okok, wait, wait, nonono, please, do NOT make me look at feats D: That's my least favorite part of DnD. And I really really REALLY do not want anyone to be forced to learn the DnD system to have fun here.

It seems to me that this concept of a really loose, informal rp is getting kinda convoluted at this point XD;; I thought we weren't having apps and we were just intending to start RPing and seeing how it goes from there? <:3?

(admittedly, I may or may not just be somewhat mentally tired from dealing with character/story critique all freaking semester XD;;; Admittedly again, there's a likely chance I will not partake of this RP, since I'm not one for writing much <:3;; )

I still think there should be at least some thread to post character profiles, even if we aren't necessarily going to be using them as applications.

Character profiles are fun, but probably shouldn't be required.

Seriously guys- I've never seen so many people just TALK about RPing and never actually do it. Time to stop waffling (mmm...breakfast) and someone -anyone- PLEASE step up to the plate and get this ball rolling. Honestly, I'd start, but I don't think I'm the right choice for an opening post.

DO EET.

I can't be the one this time, I graduate on Sunday and have a lot of things I need to do right now. I'll jump in when I have time but I don't know when that's going to be.

I'm free. I'll write up an IC and OOC thread.

If you are to creat an RP section make sure you assign the proper RP friendly people to the section as well as set up a type of RP guidelines, Rules, Character format, a discussion thread, an Idea thread and a "Help me" Thread for those who are lost.

Place these in a RP section but have a seperate section for character creation, so you won't clog up the RP section or back it up cause if that happens I ainĂ½ using the plunger

Yeah, the OOC thread is pretty much all of that goodness in one. However guidelines probably wouldn't be there, as it's pretty much common sense. Nobody really pays attention to character creation/there won't be THAT many characters. I think I'll be fine to just post there, or message an individual for help if you really deem it necessary. ^^

That's a silly idea. We're not kids, we can just RP without having to have nannies. If you need a Help Section, then this RP is not for you.

I don't really see a need for dice rolls or character sheets, since we're all mature enough to play for the fun of role-playing and building a story together (as opposed to behaving like rabid kids who need to prove they have the strongest build/pokemon). However, I think there should be some general guidelines to fair play and some rules to tell how powerful a character can be, so that we avoid "unpleasant surprises". I'm also in favour of an introductions thread where people shortly explain who/what their characters are (and it's also the place to post sheet-related stuff, if you think it's necessary). I already have a character I've been wanting to play for quite some time, I'll use her as an example of how you could possibly set up the mechanics part:

Nova Shadowstalker (obviously not her real name)
Level: whatever's good for you, but preferably between 7 and 14
Race: Sun Elf Fey'ri (but much weaker than the official DnD version)
High scores: Intelligence (primary), Dexterity
Medium scores: Charisma, Wisdom
Low scores: Constitution, Strength
Classes: Rogue, Ranger, Arcane Trapsmith [custom]
Strong points: Headshot, sneaking, poison, traps, battle strategy, DIPLOMACY
Weak points: Melee, fighting without preparation, uncooperative team

I'm not going to post background stuff here because it would take even more space, so I'll save it for the introductions thread if there is one.

(This thread made me register XD)
