Mistborn Forum RPG
« on: May 31, 2010, 06:31:08 PM »
I ran into an old thread around here that talked about a mistborn forum RPG, however it appears thats dead. Would anyone be interested in helping me create a new one/bring back the old one?

Same with me. When that site came up, I knew I didn't have any time to devote to it, yet I did it anyways. Well, I definitely don't have time now, unfortunately.

It was a fun site, to be sure, but when the root admin vanished, things just devolved from there.

I can probably figure things out with the rules and such and set it up on my server if enough people are willing to play.

I would also be interested in such a thing.  I have a little experience with these from other sites.  Who would run it?
When to live is to die, and to die is to live, does either really matter?

So, what all would this entail? dice rolling or just storytelling? 'cause I've never done a forum RPG afore.

The few I have done have been like a multi viewpoint story, with each person writing from the point of view of their character or characters, with a couple of free characters that everyone can write thrown in. For example: I'd write, "Character A accidentily runs into character B and shoots lightning at him" incredibly eloquently, and Character B's writer would jump in to write, "Fotrunately B had chosen this day to wear his rubber suit" 
I'm simplifying it of course, the one's I've done haven't been pedantic at all.  Just don't do anything drastic to anyone else's characters (which is why my example is a bad one), unless you discuss it with them first in a personal message.

I'm not saying we have to do it this way, it's just the way I've done it before.
 There's also usually some simple rules/laws for the created universe, and general guidelines for character creation.  For example, although I really would love to be myself, the shard of brain activity, such a character probably wouldn't be fun to write/read about after the first few amusing view points, because not much is at stake, I wouldn't have much to do with the other characters, and it takes a certain person to be a 'god' character and not ruin it for the rest of the players.

Oh wow didn't realize people were still interested... been busy. I can probably get us a server if someone can admin because I'll be gone for about a month starting next Saturday. Let me know if people are still interested.
