Traveller's Café 2: Discussion, tea, brainstorming & advice

Postby P2TM » Wed Jan 29, 2014 5:43 pm

The beginning.
Credit for the Traveller's Cafe idea goes out to Esternial. No one else has done more for P2TM.

Image


Note: This isn't a chat thread like General's Eternal Thread, Gameplay's Neutral Ground and F7's Flaming Wombat. We'd like to keep things centred around topics related to this forum, and specifically roleplaying (tips, hints, etc.). Discuss character development, RP genres or wage discussions that you'd rather have outside of your thread OOCs.

There are people who have more trouble than others with getting a concept worked out. Others get it done pretty easily, or prefer to base their RP on a previous one to reduce their work-load. Then you have the people that have a concept, but are afraid to put it out there because of a possible lack of interest.

No more with that, I say!

Put your ideas forward here, the brilliant members of the Multiverse are sure to have one or two cents to add to your idea and mold it into a concept bound to garner that attention it deserves.

This thread is for three (3) things:

ImageDiscussion
You're welcome to ask questions, request feedback on ideas, or discuss ideas here. We have an official CHAT THREAD where you can chat about RP community topics in general.

ImageBrainstorming
You have a Roleplay concept or idea, but you don't know how to work this raw creation into something more refined. You post it here, describe your idea and put it on the table, then other members of the Multiverse get to give you their two cents - and some advice - so that you can trim off those sharp edges and improve your concept with details until it's ready to be posted. Stick to your idea, though; don't let others tell you what to do, it's still your idea. You're also free to put forwards your ideas here, even if you don't intend to use it yourself. Maybe one of the members of this Think Tank might be interested in it.

ImageAdvice
Any question you might have laying around may be posted here. This is a thread dedicated to 'helping' you out, where your fellow RP'ers will be the ones doing the helping. Whether you want pointers or can't figure something out, post it here. In essence, this thread is the equivalent of the RP'ing Questions Thread. Despite the myriad of capable Mentors, most have little experience with P2TM RP's and etiquette (if there is any), so I believe that we should have questions related to P2TM answered by people from P2TM. You don't ask a Frenchman directions in London (Unless he lives there, or has a map, or know a friend...you know what I mean.)

Note: For II-related question or general questions regarding your RP'ing, contact the II Mentors or go here. For a list of RP regions, RP groups or cataloged discussions on RP subjects, go here.

ImageAdvertising in this thread is permitted, but you might want to add a good description to your post instead of simply posting a link to the OOC thread. RPs that were previously discussed her may be posted and don't need a description if they have been worked out in this thread. There is an official P2TM RP ADVERTISMENT thread HERE if your RP is ready to launch.

We have two forms available. HELP ME and RP INTEREST. HELP ME is for general RP questions (How do I make an OOC? Can you look at my thread? What's "insert topic" mean?). RP INTEREST is what you use if you're working on a RP idea and want feedback. Please do NOT remove the #Mentor hashtag.

With this initiative, which is completely funded by my offshore bank account, I seek to help people work out raw concepts into marvelous RP fresco's. Nobody likes an unbaked bread - and if you do, you'll probably be sick after eating it - so get it baked here. With chocolate or without it, you're the OP. Mold that dough into the most awesome bread this forum has ever seen!

Turtle never tasted so damn awesome and so guilt-free! This is what your RP could be like!

Esty resigned from being a Mentor and is cutting back NS activity.

As a result I made this in case we ever have need to make edits.

RP Interest App Form

High Concept: You play historical wars. After the war is over, the victors get first pick at what the next war will be. I have a bunch of wars I would kind of like to do, but it is up to the RP'ers to decide what it would be officially.

Genre/s: War, Action, Faction, that kind of stuff

Detailed Description: You play historical wars. After the war is over, the victors get 1.5 votes for what the next war will be. I have a bunch of wars I would kind of like to do, but it is up to the RP'ers to decide what it would be officially. I think the first one would be Alexander the Great's Conquest of Persia. The wars we decide on would can be past, present, future, or imaginary.

The Parameters for winning will be decided by the RP's participants.

There will be a bunch of 'special rules' for this game to prohibit godmodding such as saying what exactly is godmodding and having stricter than normal consequences for it.

What say you all?

Well, I think that all the members of the RP will decide what the parameters for winning for them and the other people are. I shall also have VERY strict rules on Godmodding and Meta-Gaming and that kind of stuff.
