Plot and Boards Questions

Post by Smoke on Thu Mar 06, 2014 8:52 pm

Hello people, I'm Smoke. I'm new to the site, but not to role-playing. I've been role-playing since about January last year, so I'm not the most advanced player. Nor am I the smartest, and that would be why I'm here, posting something in the 'Help' board.  Wink 
I have two main questions:
1. Where do I post a topic about needing a good plot for one of my characters? I believe it is the 'Plot' board that I need to post on, but I'm not sure if that is just for plots that have already been made and not a player needing help to come up with one.
2. For posts, since we don't make new topics normally, do I just post while others are posting but not have my character interacting with theirs?
Sorry if I sound like I'm a noob or something, but I just had to ask these questions before I got to role-playing :3

Hey~! Welcome to the forum. I'll try answer your questions as simple as possible.

Plots

Plots you create for your characters need to be posted before you begin the plot. The plot section you post them is called "Mini-Character-Plot"
It can be located by clicking [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

If you click the link I provided up there,
You can see that there are a looot of threads. The ones near the top are the most recent. If you're interested in joining a plot, read the recent ones and if you like the idea..Comment and ask if they need extra players to join in.

If you want to create your own special character drama, then you just create and thread and basically outline what happens. So, does your character get really sick and have a near death experience which causes him/her to become slightly deranged? (This idea I just explained was recently done by another user and the only way to really check and see if it's current is to read the threads.)

Double ups of drama plots (same drama idea being used once or twice) isn't all that common and we do accept it, provided the user who first used that idea doesn't mind. Forbidden loves and etc don't need permission from other users, only.. With these, they do need to be bought using points. Points are the forum's currency and you can purchase things using points which you gain through posting, competitions, referring new users, etc. Point Information
(click)


So, to answer your question in short. The plot section is for all users. Current plots and past plots. You can join those plots by asking the user who created the thread if they need extra users (you may then need to create a new character to join in) or you can create your own. Double ideas are allowed, but permission may be needed.

Posting

I'm not entirely sure what you mean. Everyone posts in one thread, unless it's a personal hunting trip with a potential mate or a drama plot or something of that nature. Your character can interact with others in the one giant thread? Smile

Sometimes roleplay on a forum can be frustrating. You never know when someone will respond to your message or not. Sometimes it will take 30 seconds, othertimes, it could be up to a few hours. I'll give you an example of roleplay on GBMP;

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Just scroll down through that page. It's the current and most recent clan messages for Sombreclan. If you look, you can see "new" characters pop into the thread often. Awrycloud walked in, Cunningbreath walked in. Their characters did interact with others - not always on the first post, but maybe the second or maybe even the first. You can just enter and start introducing yourself. The point of being in a clan is to try and interact with your clan mates, get your character to make friends. If your character is shy, then, perhaps your character can stay shy and not interact with anyone.

In case I didn't answer your question, here's some more information on roleplay;

That's fine! We don't mind you asking questions. Navigating around somewhere you're not used to can be difficult. There are a lot of new rules and new definitions which can make it complicated. Smile
If your question isn't answered, let me know and I'll keep trying to help you!

That was a great explanation for everything, thank you! I really do appreciate the help. Smile
Thank you for explaining the plots. I've come up with them before, but not on a brand-new site (to me, at least).
Same goes for posting. I was used to creating a thread in a topic and just letting others join, even if it was in the same place as other cats that were being role-played in a different topic.
