So this is where all of the people participating in Crimson Harvest can talk about things. NOT like in the URT. Must be relevant to Crimson Harvest. So STOP posting about how much you love peoples characters in the creation thread and put it here
Alright, first off, gotta point out that anyone is welcome to join this RP at any time. Just PM me, and I'll work you into the story as soon as possible. Hell, even you guest viewers are welcome to register and join this shit. You know who you are, all ye' unregistered lurkers.
SECOND, Zhar for all his badassery. Without him the story wouldn't be half as good as it is. On a related note, he will be running the RP whenever I am absent.
NOW, with all that out of the way, onto ze rules!
Like Abbadon's Legions before it, this will be a laid back RP. You don't need to conform to a strict posting amount, but try to post once a day if possible, or 3 times a week. As long as you can keep up with the story, and contribute to the story, you're posting enough.
But then, there's the Quantity < Quality argument. Of course, I don't want you to compress all your thoughts into one, massive wall of text. But, at the same time, you don't need to post three times to express "I walked to the swamp." Just try to keep them as interesting as possible, and post at your own discretion.
However, try not to post over 3 or so times in one day, we don't want the story to move on TOO quickly.
The normal forum rules would apply, like don't flame/troll/whatever. No double posting.
Also, you cannot control other player characters. So, if you're Scyberdragon, you can't make my character murder Azriel's character, nor can he have my character decapitated/raped by an angry mob of peasantry. However, if consent exists (Example, Scyberdragon and I planned it out beforehand), then it is OK for you to control other characters.
But, this doesn't mean you can't set up situations. So, if you wished, you could say something like "Bill noticed a bear creeping up behind Zhar, and shouted to him to watch out." However, you can't actually make said bear eat me.
This will definitely be much more free than in other RP's. HOWEVER, this does not mean you're invincible. So, if you tried to single handedly best 10 or so soldiers in combat, you'd probably end up dead. Just make sure to be realistic when confronted with multiple opponents.
Creativity is seriously encouraged for this. Both in characters, and in posts. If you want something to exist, then it exists. So if you want the woods we're in to suddenly spring to life and try to eat us, then the woods will suddenly spring to life and try to eat us.
However, I will still be guiding the story in the direction we are going, so if I say something like "Hey guys, we're going to town to bring this bag of beans to Farmer Ted.", you can't be all "WELL FUCK YOU ZHAR, I'M GOING TO KILL FARMER TED, AND THEN TAKE THE BEANS TO FARMER JACOB!!"
That wouldn't be cool, so don't do it. Farmer Ted needs those beans.
Just wondering, when is the approximate date of when you guys plan to start dis shit up? Like, will you wait for everyone that posted in the sign-up to make a character, then start immediately after, or what?

2 days sounds good. But with the creativity thing you should have a limit on what to do because being in some dark woods and then seeing a portal to Sing-Along Unicorn Land would be kind of wierd... Or would it? I'm confused
It's gigantic because it is a old character that i've created (a fan fiction i've never posted anywhere!). The first post had a ridicolous amount of gramma error, please, reload the page if you don't want your eyes exploded by my bad gramma!
I actually didin't like the way i posted her story. In my fan fiction i gave my attention to her mother and the elders. The way o told her story looks like a giant stream of useless events.. =/
