OOC Discussion

Postby IronFox on Thu May 25, 2006 10:10 pm

I know we're all jonesing for more Nip&Tuck, some more than others (Can't wait for my commission 8-) !), and while we're not discussing what comics are up there, we're usually discussing politics. Nothing against politics, mind you, but it does get a little dull.
So here's my question: would anyone be interested in setting up an RP set in Malarky county? It would help while away the hours, keep forum readership up in stretches without comics, etc etc.
Any takers?

PS: Hang tough, Ralph. I'll probably buy another commission after the current one I've ordered comes out, or a good amount of the super CD's once my paycheck comes in.

Sorry, I'm an old-fashioned role-player so I'm new to the whole RP thread concept. I saw an RP thread on the Questor forum and it scared me... like, 200+ replies or something... I dunno if I could keep up with it!

Okay, well, tell me more about RPs and their rules, guidelines, etc. (Geez, I feel like a complete newbie here... sorry, I've always lived in my own little world.) Is it just a continuing story that people take turns updating or...?

Basicly. A good RP becomes a noval writen by many authers. Rules differ between RPs, but the main ones are, don't take over other charectors without permition (duh), and make sure your charector has somewhat obvious streangths and weaknesses. So get the creative jucies flowing and have fun! You should check out the RPs around the TOTQ forum to give you a general idea.

Well, shoot. I guess I'm willing to give it a try! I won't make any promises, but I'll try and contribute what I can! :)

whoo hoo! sounds good to me. Does anyone want me to set up a "Characters'" thread, or should we just start right here?

Well, we need a mums thread anyway! So set up one or two new threads and let's get started!

If I might make a humble suggestion, since you've had a bit of Q&A going on here already, make this the "mun discussion" thread.

Ironfox, since you started the thread, I think you might be able to edit the title appropriately. I think Astral might know how because he edited the named for the "Between Worlds" thread, well at least someone changed them...

Just to translate to english, Spacewolf, most RP's ive seen consist of two threads:

The titled story thread where you will write in your character's actions

The "mun" thread where you will ask other players, out of character (OOC) questions that will affect your characters actions; e.g. "Remembger guys, the water is four feet deep in here, and my guy is only three feet tall, and cannot swim, someone is going to have to come back and pick him up"

or

"OK whose turn is it to post next?"

Title changed, but most of you probably noticed.

Sure, come on down Grumpy. The more the merrier.
Um...as for setting, Malarky county is probably a fairly good one. Should probably set up some general areas (the Todd Farm, Gilly's farm, the Food-y-Mart, Pop Otto's Garage, etc) and probably some character guidelines (Age, gender, description, general items, etc).

Actually, if R.H. could give us a map it'd save a world of trouble.

I guess another question might be: Are toon physics in play? How serious do you want this to be?

The other rp's in the other forums are fairly serious, will this be lighthearted?

I'm thinking of a character, an older silver fox, probably, immigrated from Serbia, perhaps with many "fond" memories of the old country:

(outside temp=38f)

"Ahhh, is nice varm Serbian high summer day. What more could young man want than to go down to river and vatch the babushkas sunning themselves on the rocks!"

Or perhaps something in that vein, if it's OK...

Well, if we're RPing in Malarky County, I'd think the toon physics would be somewhere between reality and absolute absurdity. For example, Nip gets blown up in explosions, but typically just looks blackened. Sometimes hot sauce will cause flames to come out of someone's mouth, etc. However, I don't see anyone getting a safe dropped on them and them walking away like an accordion...

As for character, I guess you'd have me as a wolf, pretty much looking like the character in my icon. If we want to introduce a bit of sci-fi to it, my character would be from outer space... heck, it says SpacewolfOmega for a reason, although he would be stranded in Malarky County and taking up residence. He wouldn't have access to much of anything futuristic (downplayed a lot if he did manage to have anything), but rather he may find himself looking at the stars, thinking about getting back home, etc. Think that'd work?

Someone:"Did you see that creature just pop out of the lake?"
Spacewolf Omega:"Reminds me of the sea dragons of Keldorav 8."
*both stare at the lake for awhile*
Spacewolf Omega:"Course then again, the sea dragons didn't wear bikinis."

Count me in. I've never done this before either. Just like Spacewolf said we are old school gamers. This could be fun!

The important question *I'd* have to ask is this: Is there room for TWO grumpy curmudgeons in Malarky county?

(I'm thinkin' of the turtle, who's name I can't recall...)

Might be a tad crowded, cranky old fart wise, if I were to move to Malarky county...
