Just an Advertisement that we have a new RP that we are starting up occuring after the events of episode 5. You can be a RP 'Pro' or be completely new to Role Playing, everyone is welcome.
We are hoping to have it up and running within a week or two once we have enough characters to start the story.
Hopefully it can get going soon and have some good fun.

  • I'd like to join, but the rules are way too strict. The best part of the walking dead is watching characters who hate each other. Also, why make it so posters can't cuss? They're already 18.

  • The swearing is Proboard's policy I think. Why do you say the rules are too strict?

  • Ok, then the swearing makes sense. That was a tiny smidge, but this is just either badly worded or a terrible rule: [quote]6) Characters may be offensive towards each other but nothing too extreme.[/quote]

    What does extreme mean? Unrealistic? That would be better, but this wording makes me feel that Kenny's hate speech followed by the "go fuck yourself" option would be far beyond the line, which it shouldn't.

    Also, a lesser problem is the paragraph rule. I usually whole-heartedly agree with this kind of rule. As long as it has some leniency. Sometimes, in these kind of things, people will ask you questions. Not big, philosophical questions, but light, discussion fillers. For things like that, you can only go so far into conversation and description so many times before you start to mindlessly repeat yourself.

    I had a lot more written, but then I realized I was just mindlessly repeating myself. Damn I hate when I rant.

  • The pargraph rule is sometimes ignored. It's mainly done so people can "read" what the others are thinking about, to give some context. I have no idea what is intended with "extreme" though.

  • If I were to join, I'd be a character who'd likely be disliked by most. And who would dislike everyone. Kinda like Larry, but without the whole "leave you for dead" part. So I'd like a more exact explanation of extreme.

  • See Kelik, he is a half antagonist. A character who pees people off is fine as long as you don't go unrealstic.

  • Well the 'extreme' part I believe is mean't mostly to the RP'ers of the characters. No one wants any fighting on the forums, if you know what I mean? My character can be pretty nasty and spiteful, kinda like Larry/Kenny in that sense.

    As for the paragraphs rule, you don't want someone writing BIG, BULKY messages to another character(because they interact a lot), where it becomes a regular thing. It's to try to keep things short and to the point, although there are exceptions. Description is nice, as long as it isn't overdone. No one cares about the tree sitting down the street if it doesn't play a part at all. We don't need to know how long it's feathers are. You understanding better? Explain your character's thoughts, actions, and dialogue, and get out.

    Note: I am a major example for that rule. I usually write 1-2 paragraph posts, where I describe what Kelik is doing while also talking to another person, getting his point across. He's loud and talkative, so he has a lot to say. The rules are just to be kept in mind so people don't get carried away.

    As for the cursing, it is a rule of proboards to either limit your swearing or censor it. People know what Kelik says when he goes "F*ck! What the hell are you doing, a**hole!" I really don't believe if someone can't 'connect the dots'.

    Character disliked by most? Join the club today!
