Gate Collision OOC
Hey again, all. Since all RPs have a different way of working, I thought I'd finally announce what sort of workings around here Cait and I agreed on.|
So you both have a journal and a community to post at. Where should you post your thread?
The main community will be for major events, or threads that are open to everybody; scenes that take place in public areas, that way if your character is around, they can wander in if they please. Anything that effects the entire RP as a whole IGly will be posted here. Think the Nexus without the questions, if you're familiar with that setting.
Personal journals will be for more private threads; scenes with maybe one or two other people, or a thread that isn't open for just anyone to pop in should it effect plots and the such.
If you want to post a major/gamewide thread in your personal journal, that's perfectly fine-- we're not asking to be totally OCD with our organization here. It's just something to help out a little.
First off, there will be no journal system in this RP. It just wouldn't work. This world doesn't have that sort of technology for computers and we're not about to make up some silly reason why. If you want your character to meet people, try throwing your characters into a public thread.
Our preferred method of storytelling is prose in third person. Knowing a few of you (as this post was made), I know you already do that. But just clearing that up.
Interaction and Communication
We're small, which means it'll be easier for everyone to get to know each other better. We have a mun contact list here (which by the way, if you haven't posted to yet, we'd really appreciate it if you did), in case you need to talk to someone.
Do you have an idea you want to play out with someone? Ask them! We're all a friendly bunch, so don't worry. If a certain idea doesn't work out, ask them if they'd be willing to bounce it back and forth until something does work. Or if you just want to throw two characters together and see what happens? Again, ask! OOC communication is the key.
Posting up an open thread and labeling it as such, then see if anyone is willing to jump in works as well. Everyone is willing to get some RPing going, so don't hesitate at all to do that.
That's all for tonight though I'm pretty sure I forgot something. Any questions, comments, suggestions or food fights are encouraged.
