Rules for submitting

Postby Ashley » Tue Jul 26, 2005 6:38 pm

This forum is for new RPG ideas to be expressed, and for potential GMs to recruit members. If your idea fits CAA guidelines* and you have sufficient players, proceed to PM a staffer and we will look over your thread. If approved, we will create a new thread for you in the Main Roleplay forum.

* CAA guidelines for RPGs:
- No sexual scenes or skimpily clothed outfits
- No foul language, but you can say things like "they cursed"
- No mixing in the supernatural with fantasy; that is to say, you can't have a reinvented version of the book of Revelation with elves and demons.
- Magic is a very, very touchy subject that will be dealt with on a thread-by-thread basis. If you plan on having magic in your RPG, it's best to run your idea by a mod/admin before even posting on it.

Those are really good guidelines. I agree with them 100% and hope to abide by the rules! >_< Yes!

Hey peoples!

Just wondering, is this a good place to post rules for an RPG system? That way anyone could play the game, try the rules, and post back suggestions, problems, or fixes?

What i've got isn't a real RPG system yet, but it could be played as one, though it's honestly more intended for Wargaming, with RPG elements.

Very light on magic, being dice and skill level based rather than role-playing the spells. The closest realtime comparison would be Warcraft III.

If not here, is there a general gaming/board games forum?

Thanks,
God bless,
josh.

You would get the best response to that in the General Entertainment forum.

Should i start a new thread in GE? Didn't see a sticky off hand for posting rules for new topics, and i'm not sure if game rules fit in there well, seems to be more a discussion forum for outside entertainment to me. But i will try there. Thanks.

uc pseudoym? I have a plot for an RPG here, it's got a bit of magic in it though, can I post it here in the forum? Or would this not be a good forum to discuss it?

[SIZE="1"]I have a question...

Is it possible for someone who already has an existing rpg to start another, yet still keep the other going?[/SIZE]

Yep. I did it a couple times.

Rules posting

Postby josh_manga » Wed Aug 17, 2011 11:44 pm

Hey, i have an approved RPG in the Ideas thread, and i had a question.

Should rules about stuff like Skill lists and Weapons and Armor, Racial profiles and such be posted in the RPG proposal thread or in a separate thread under the OOC thread?

The reason i ask is, it seems like important information that is part of the proposal, players will need to know when they make their character, but it also seems to be the sort of thing that would belong in a sort of database or list, which i thought might not fit in the Ideas thread.

Are there any thoughts on this? Does it matter?

Thanks.

It can be done either way, depending on how you want to organize things (I've seen it done both ways). If you do create an OOC thread for skills, weapons, etc., just make sure you link back to it in your thread in New RPG Ideas.

We've had 3 Harry Potter RP's here, two started by me. They did get accepted, but didn't last long. There just weren't enough players to make it work. It was a shame too, I created a great professor.
