Posted in that one, just for the heck of it...
Okay so, I have a new question.
What do people think regarding multiple threads?
They help keep the action separate, when players are in different locations, but they can also make the story terribly confusing to follow!
My dear friend Haibane often prefers that people put hyperlinks in between their posts when moving their character from thread to thread. The trouble with that is that not everyone knows how to do it and (for some reason, I have found) not everyone is capable of following simple instructions on how to do it!
When creating multiple threads, do you usually go for one per building, one per floor, one per room? Yes, I know it depends on the setting, so let me give an example...
Suppose we are setting a group game in an old farm-house. Below ground level is a cellar which is divided into similar rooms to the down stairs, due to the load-bearing walls. One is used for wine, another for coal. On the ground floor is a large kitchen, a sitting room, a drawing room and a dining room. Upstairs are three smaller bedrooms and one master bedroom. Above that is a loft space.
Leading off the kitchen in an annex is a scullery, which leads into a dairy, which then leads into a milking shed.
The front door of the house (which is hardly ever used) opens onto gardens and a path to the lane. The kitchen door opens onto the farm yard. Around this yard and also opening off it are the milking shed (mentioned), a huge barn, a machine shop and garage (formerly a stable) and a coop for the free-range chickens.
Obviously around the farm yard are fields.
What threads would you create for such a setting? Remembering of course that we are limited to two threads per player, lets assume 8 players.
By the way, if anyone wants to use that farm, they are welcome to, as long as I get an invite to join the RP! I can put it into the "World Building" thread with a lot more detail, or you can PM me.
