Two Quickies
« on: September 18, 2014, 10:12:26 PM »
Hi!

Here are a couple of ideas for quick short-term group freeform roleplays. They're still in the planning stages but I think they have potential.

Bull or Bare

A sudden ice storm shuts down DFW Airport and six stranded travelers find themselves at the Airport Hilton with only one suite to share between them. Stuck inside with only the copious and comped minibar and each other's company to provide solace, one suggests a game of Bull or Bare, a storytelling game where the only thing more enticing than the tales are the forfeits. Strangers become friends, friends become lovers, and anything is possible.

Cast List:
Constance Meadows (Idlewyld) - Flight Attendant
Derrick Steele (Zeth) - Businessman
Paige Larson (Marjolaine) - Freelance Book Editor


The PSP

The Pi Nu Sigma fraternity is holding its annual PSP (Progressive Strip Party.) Every half-hour, the bells chime and the guests donate another article of clothing for charity right there on the floor. Did your character come just out of curiosity, or something more? Will he or she leave early, or stay for the full monty? And what happens after?

That brings us to three (including me) for Bull or Bare - the idea calls for six so we'll see if we can get enough people.

And of course so far PSP has one person indicating interest (or two if you include me.) The required numbers there aren't as rock solid, but I'd like to get at least a few more people on board before getting started.

You could probably do Bull or Bare with just 4 people to be honest.

Depending on how the posting is set up, I might join Bull or Bare. Would you keep the six people all together at all time for the game, or would they split up and challenge each other more "privately"? Honestly, I can't RP with five other characters at the same time. It's just too much.

I see it largely running in one large room at least for the main thread though there would certainly be times when two characters might go off on their own. Structure for each round looks sort of like this...

Story (One person) -> Reactions (Group) -> Forfeits (Mostly one-on-one)

Well, that puts us at four at least for B or B, maybe five or six depending if Aysande and Vanetias would be willing to join in the fun. That being said, I think I'll set up the thread today. The fun of the game is in learning about each other's characters so there's no formal application process though of course please make sure and check out everyone's O/O's.

IC is In Character - the actual game

OOC is Out of Character - any comments or chit chat you'd like to make as a player.

Ok. Thank you Idelwyld. So our characters are people that are in the same hotel but all coming in from different cities and connecting through Dallas but their flights were all canceled?

Precisely. You should begin by introducing your character as she flies in and gets on the hotel shuttle.

By the way, this is the kind of thing one normally puts in the OOC thread.
