Why is a Earth age RP is a bad idea.

Why is a Earth age RP is a bad idea.

Postby Gunbird » Thu Sep 03, 2015 12:28 am

Last month I tried to set up a role-playing game that was similar to the Earth age Daydream story. When I mentioned it to Kern, he got nervous and said it was a bad idea do to the controversy the story brought.

Also, someone else told me that a bunch of trolls caused havoc on the RP forms during chapter 22. The moderator stepped in and blocked new people from the form for a couple months. I guess that was the reason most people on this form don't play as non-drow anymore.

I dropped the game because of this and because I'm new to role-playing. So I don't know how to make this sort RP balanced enough without pissing someone off.

Edit: Is it posable for anyone more experience on the RP form to make such a game? Or is the damage already done, and will play such a thing here?

I think that it is perfectly possible to make such a game and have it be played and not cause a flame war. Then again i have very little experience with this RP forum and not that much experience with RP overall, But i think that as long as you don't go overboard with anything it will be okay.

Just do what makes you happy and what you enjoy, that is the whole point of RP.

I think it's simply that you need to seriously expand your possibilities for player characters if you want this to work.

Can anybody think of a proper way to set up a Earth agent (Like)RP? Maybe have a have a nonviolent setting like Wu Kong Village game?

I think I found a way to to make such a game more balance.

How about we have people play as friendly group of drow(Maybe Saghress) and/or as friendly squad of humans commandos fighting a hostile group of drow(Maybe Blacksuns?)

That sounds like it could work pretty well.
