Default Re: Number of characters in the main rpg

Actually When I suggested that people be able to have multiple characters I ment for in the Paragraph RPGs.

Basically there is no problem with having more than 3 characters. I think everyone should be able to have three canon and then additional OCs should be allowed.

What we are talking about is common practice on RPG sites. You do not have to use them all in one RPG. And Individual GMs (Game Masters- the ones who start the RPGs can decied on number of characters available.)

However I agree that some people can get carried away, so There should be a limit on OCs one can submit at a time.

Like only one at a time and then they do still have to be approved by a mod before you can use them, then you have to wait so long till you can put up another OC for approval. This system would help provent flooding.

Also a stricter set of laid down guidlines among mods for what can be approved as a good character As well as a Mary Sue Litmus Test as I have spotted some problem children and one full blown case.

We really do need to start not only providing a place to RPG, but also start teaching people how to Rpg better (Pompus as that sounds its true, the so called Main RPG is full of Scratch RPG which would get you kicked out of most places as its concidered to not even qualify as real RPGing. (Actually we call it IMing last I checked.)

So teaching people how to write well structured and coherent posts (I realize that for a lot of people English is not their first language and in those cases perhaps we could actually have a sort of classroom type form showing and explaining the besics of grammer and about Tenses and such. (I myself am terrible at puntuations and spelling, (Though English is my first language, pathetic? Yes.) so even I could benefit.)

Basically improving on characters, helping with character development. (Maybe even a Workshop where people could get help fleshing out their characters or an RPG or Story idea.) Sentance langth, spelling, grammer and over all coherancy.

Alot needs to be worked and and can be improved if people would be willing to try, and as people progress and become better RPGers then taking on, and dealing with more characters should become less and less difficault for everyone I should think.

Well I've said my peice, sorry if I seemed a bit gruff in some places, I was just being brutally honest.

Default Re: Number of characters in the main rpg

Everyones ideas have been considered. I think at the moment the majority have opted for 3 characters.

Nikikeya I have taken on board what you have said about improving the area and will discuss things with the High Council.

We have discussed this and agree, we have changed the rules to alow for 3 characters, and no limit on OC's registered.
However, these may need to be agreed for use for certen games.
