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.
Thanks.

  • 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'.

  • Hey thanks Bioshock! It's thanks to Shrewsbury Survivor it is still up and running :P

  • Hey there. I write for my homeboy Clay, Jessica, Molly, Christa and Duncan on the RP. Just want to give a big shout out to our fellow writers and encourage folks to check out all their great work. We have a terrific blend of veteran RP-ers (or whatever the proper term is) along with debut writers who have come out of the gate strong. It's thrilling, intense, occasionally funny and very compelling.

    We are happy to accept new writers as well. Part of the fun is bringing new characters in and seeing how it shapes the story. Submit your character applications to the appropriate thread and don't feel intimidated at all. No prior knowledge of role playing or even the game is necessary to join. The purpose of this is to build a community of writers to have fun, improve our skills and share our enjoyment of TWD game.

    As an admin on the RP as well, I know we would all love to hear feedback from our readers and writers alike. Any characters or story elements you particularly like? Anything that could be improved? Any way we can improve the site to be more accessible? We have a few things in the works, but we appreciate your input as well.

    And above all, thank you to Telltale Games for making one of the strongest TWD stories in years. I'm a big fan of the comics and a somewhat fan of the show (a good show but flawed), but this game invested me in a way that I have not been invested in a long time. Congrats on Season 1 and we all hope the best for Season 2. And if you ever need characters for future games....well, come browse our RP :) Hehehe!
