this is the idea.
I'm bored. Like, really bored. Like, so fucking bored I could shoot myself
in the face. I could shoot someone else in the face. But I won't. Instead,
I'll pitch this idea into cyberspace and hope I get a response from someone competent
enough to actually help me reach my unrealistic expectations. However, I'm asking
for someone who can motivate me to reply. Who pushes me to go beyond my
ability as a writer and storyteller so that I can actually improve because of them.
Someone who'll collaborate with me outside of the roleplay, and has some sense of
visual taste---because this roleplay isn't going to be just text. If you think you fit into
this category, stick around.
Posts aren't going to be just posts. I want the thread we end up using to resemble
a scrapbook, more then anything. There'll be pictures, drawings, links to music or
videos...you name it. I want us to get inside our character's heads. Although actual
action will be written in third person, there are chances through the character's thought
processes, mental notes, actual notes or recollections where you're allowed to fall into
first person. Get into their heads.
The plot itself isn't really there. Why? Because we're winging it. The only thing
we'll know prior is the setting, and even then, we don't have to know that. We'll know
little to nothing about each other's characters before the roleplay starts---and we won't
know the genre. Just focus on creating your character. For all the other player knows,
they could be a wizard or a fucking space cadet. This kind of roleplay should be
filled with surprises, that way, it stays interesting. No relationships should be
thought out in advance. The characters are meeting for the first time.
We know as much about the other as they do. Just keepin' it real, man.
