Armageddon RPG Phase 1



Okay, first let me lay down the rules of this little RPG. Hopefully this won't take long:

- To begin playing, go to The Register and post your character's name. You may play as many characters as you want, as long as you can actively keep multiple storylines going at once.

- You are allowed to "God Mod" to a certain extent in this game. That means that you can play as other people's characters, so long as you do not change who that character is. For instance, if you need my character Paul to be in the same place as you for whatever reason, you can post an explanation of how Paul came to be in that place. However, if Paul is a skinny weak character, you cannot have him lifting up a car in your post!

- You can post in any sequence at any time - there are no limits on how much you can post per day, or how long your posts can be. However, there are two things to observe here:

1) Quality over quantity. I would rather have a great one paragraph post from you than a long, rambling, incoherent essay.

2) No double-posting. You must wait until at least one person, preferably two or three, people have posted before you can post again. However, to keep this thing going, if noone has posted in the past 24 hours you can double-post in that situation.

- Finally, and most importantly, NO SIGNATURES. There is a handy little button at the bottom of your posts - "Enable signature?" - please untick that box when in Phase 2 - The RPG!


------------------------------------------------

Okay, those are the rules, now this is how the game is played.

In a short while (within the next hour) I shall post the first post in The RPG. Using only this post, your character's name, and your imagination, you shall begin posting.

Your character can be anyone from anywhere as long as he can somehow fit into the bigger picture of the story. So, your character can be a member of the White House staff, a terrorist, a reporter who has discovered the threat, a civilian who has discovered the threat, or anybody who can conceivably tie into this story.

The game will be played in non-sequential order - my first post will be on a Tuesday. Your posts can be anywhere in the "present" (Saturday to Friday) or the "past" (you can flashback as far as you like). The only restriction here is nothing past Friday - in a few weeks I shall post a Friday post, and then there will be no restrictions - you can post at any time in the past, present or future.

So, as those of you who were in the Z Saga will know, this can lead to many interesting plotlines involving multiple characters in multiple scenarios at different points in time. But it all has to tie in some how to the events between Tuesday and Friday.

That is all for now. Read this, re-read this, and when you are ready to play read the RPG and go from there! This is all reactionary stuff - how you post dictates how I post, and so on.

Above all - have fun! The game is always subject to change, so if you have an idea go with it. I am not the writer/moderator of this RPG - we all are!


You may now use this topic for all Off-Topic Chat in regards to the RPG. Save the Phase 2 topic for In Character posting only ssmile.gif

It's not so bad though. I learned that my next RP should have a bit more structure to it to be really successful.

I am in the middle of writing a Mafia RPG for The Center, so when I finish that I will make a new one here.
