PostSubject: Early RPing   Mon Apr 02, 2012 12:51 pm

People were suggesting a while ago that we should get some way to have those new to rping get into practice with it, and things have been a little slow here lately. So, as a solution, I came up with the idea of setting up a section for early rping not related to the central plot. I'm thinking either ancestor-related stuff (which has already been happening to a certain extent via pms) pre-game interaction rping, or both. The main problem with doing ancestor rping is that not all the ancestors actualy interact with each other very often. Still would be fun though. What do you guys think?

I'm fine with that! At the same time, we can take our trolls and put them in alt-universe situations and basically RP reactions or game play. I know a few people were behind a Ghostbusters-based RP along those lines. Either way, I think some practice would be a grand idea!

I was kind of hoping for more than one opinion on this matter. >:[

Sorry! I looked through this thread once, saw "ancestor rping" and went off on the train of thought that's in the other thread, and never got around to posting back here.

Yes, I am fond of the idea of early RPing. Both to help pass time while we get some details polished out, and help us get into our character's skin and get a feel for 'em. 8 )

I'm leaning away from doing ancestor stuff for reasons mentioned in the OP and because I guess we don't seem to have the deal with that entirely worked out yet. If we do end up doing pre-game rping (moar opinonz plz) we're going to want to do that in whatever format we end up doing the actual game in (MOAR OPINIONS ON THAT PLZ), although I suppose it's not hugely important. We can probably iron out kinks in it with the early rping. Either way, I'd like to make sure there are no major objections to the current proposals as far as that goes before proceeding (hint, hint).

EDIT: Suppose I should provide a link to the thread in question. http://sboard.forumotion.com/t5-venue-format

I would rather we do as much rping as possible beforehand, so's to get a feel for our characters, and so on.
Now, the question is, where would we do these rp's?
We have a few options.

--IRC. Volksie has kindly set up a channel for us to use specifically for SBOARD-related purposes (server name irc.uk.mibbit.net, channel name #SBOARD). This is unfortunately a Mibbit-only server. Zael, I know you specifically have issues with getting on the SBOARD channel, but I figured out how to use Mibbit on Android phones! Step-by-step-instructions:

First, go to chat.mibbit.com.
Second, follow these pictures:



That should get you in; if you have any questions, just ask.

--Pesterchum. This one is self-explanatory, it's a program MADE for this kind of stuff.

--Skype/Omegle/Chatroulette/Tinychat/other kinds of online chat programs. This is also an option, if only a fallback option.

Thoughts?

Several options! I feel like Pesterchum would be the easiest for RPing, at least where trolls are speaking over Trollian. It remembers typing quirks, has correctly colored text, and I have most if not all of Sboard on my chumroll already. I don't use it for normal communication, so if I'm ever on, I'm likely in character. Though, really, I'm up for RPing just about anywhere.

((Sorry I haven't been around, stuff happened that kept me a bit busy recently.))

I'd be most comfortable with doing a combination of rping here and on pesterchum, especially early on. If we do most of it here, people will have a chance to think things through before setting their posts out and get used to the rhythm of things, both of which are especially valuable to first-time rpers. Also to be considered is the fact that real-time rping can be pretty hectic and confusing with ninja-ing (having a new relevant post appear while one is still typing out one's own) being far more likely, so it would be best to introduce people to that particular format in small doses, which would work fine through early pesterchum encounters that fit into larger threads here.
