Default Do you like paragraph roleplaying?

I've noticed that a lot of you roleplay if not all of you. I've also noticed that you enjoy Script Roleplaying. Script roleplaying is basically just as it says, roleplaying in script form. Where you have sctions in *'s and speaking in "". However, there are other types of roleplaying and that's what I'm here to discuss. I don't know know if this goes here, but they told it could easily be placed in the right place. So here goes.

Paragraph roleplaying is like reading a book that everyone's writing together. There's usually at least a paragraph. A little rules that goes with Paragraph roleplaying is called Mirror Posting. For those of you who don't know, it's when p1 posts a 3 paragraph post, and p2 has to try and at least get 3 paragraphs for their post. And if p1 decides their next post is going to be only 2 prargraphs then p2 can write 2 paragraphs. Sounds easy enough, yeah?

Now, I should expect everyone knows what consists of a Paragraph. If not, it's 3-7 sentences consisting of one idea. If you have a new idea, it's a new paragraph.

In Paragraph roleplaying, you're describing your surroundings, your emotions, the expression you let other see, and of course, describing everything you would see if you were in that situation. What you or rather your character is noticing. When you read a novel you notice how the author has an eye for detail, and that's exactly what we want with Paragraph Roleplaying. In Script roleplaying, you write it down, but there's no one to act it out, which makes for difficult describing.

Now, I'm not asking for it to replace it, but to merely glide along side, like, friends. The rules of the site would remain the same of course.

Basically what I'm asking is, who here is more used to or at leas likes the idea of Paragraph Roleplaying, so that it may be friends with Script Roleplaying?

Try using a thesaurus. Works wonders in finding different words that mean the same to make your paragraph sound more eloquent.

I think it sounds a very nice way of roleplaying if you want the pace to be a bit slower ,or you want to spend a little time working out your post and then I guess it goes onto the next person who is playing.

Hana , how would you do this? do you have so many people at the start and then finish a story before having new people join the story.

What happens if a new person is interested, would they have to set up a different story with other players or can they join in part way through?

As I have discussed with Hanakazari, if there is enough interest, I would be happy to find a place for it here.

It would be good to have more types or RPG.

I've done something like that before. We had to have a good paragraph to post (more than 4 or 5 sentences). It wasn't easy, but it was sure fun.

I'm used to role-playing like that. It's a lot of fun! For someone like me, the fast role-playing using ** is confusing.
