Hey!
I have an idea for an AIO-based RPG, but are there any rules I have to follow before starting it?

Thanks!


(EDIT: Rules — viewtopic.php?f=18&t=35547&p=1148304#p1148304)

We already have one, it is just paused (Regis Returns II: Epic Subtitle Here)

There's absolutely nothing wrong with having another though if you still want to run one SG! There are no special rules, you are in charge of your game. :)

I think the fact that the other one is paused is more than enough reason to start a new one. :yes:

But, yes, even if it weren't paused, the more the merrier.

Okay! If it doesn't work out the way I want it to go, I'll reset the story.
Here are the rules for dialogue:
    Character speaks: No indication ( )
    Character acts: asterisks (*)
    Specifying character: hairpins (< and >)
    Asking me (Scientific Guy) a question: curly brackets ( { and } )
On your first post, pick a character who is currently living in Odyssey. This would include Mandy, Bernard, and Lester; but not Regis Blackgaard or Tom Riley. If you want to change your character or choose an otherwise restricted character (someone who doesn't currently live in Odyssey), ask me with curly brackets. Only PM me if you really don't want anyone else to see the question.
Let's see how it goes!

{ I'm sorry, maybe I'm slow, but Mandy hasn't been on the show since 2008, right? So how is it she currently lives in Odyssey? I'm sorry, I just feel like I'm missing something foundational. }

{ I want to keep the possible character roster as large as possible. I'm trying to have a good reason for excluding a character. Blackgaard and Tom Riley have been mentioned on the show to be deceased, but Mandy and Bernard just faded away. So if someone wants to be Tom, that's a problem. Basically anyone who COULD be living in Odyssey is allowed. Or you can ask me specifically! }

Oh, hi Penny! Or, Mrs. Bassett, right? How was the honeymoon?

<Bennett Charles>
Bennett walks into the NovaCom building and says "Odyssey, I have returned."
<Cal Jordan>
Cal walks into Whit's End (he's 14 btw) and says, "Who are you two?"

{Monty: Nope, gotta say no for two reasons. One, can you stick to one character at a time? I think I said that above: "If you want to change your character ... ask me with curly brackets." Two, Bennett Charles is in jail.}

{...But if you want to ask me if you can be him, go ahead and ask... :-$ }

{Also, actions are denoted by ( * ) and dialogue does not have ( " ). So your post would read:}

<Cal Jordan>
*walks into Whit's End (he's 14 btw)*
Who are you two?
