OPEN THREADS
Whether you're new and just not sure where to start, just wanna meet some new people, or are itching for some spontaneity, open threads are perfect for all of that. They're a great way to throw caution to the wind, be adventurous, and just write and see what happens.

If you've created an open thread, feel free to use this thread to pimp it out! Just fill out the small form and reply to this thread!  Feel free to post your open thread as many times as you like, but wait at least a week before posting the same one again.

Open threads are awesome, so do take advantage of 'em!

The code:

Code: [Select]
[list][*][url=http://thread_URL_goes_here.net]Thread Title![/url]
[*][b]Character:[/b] The character(s) present in the opening post!
[*][b]Location:[/b] Where the threads takes place (Serendipity, Adela, Connlaoth, etc.)
[*][b]Description:[/b] A brief little summary of the thread.[/list]

Helpful Tips
  • When creating an open thread, make sure that the time of day and setting is clear. That makes it easier for other players to reply, as some may not be comfortable replying to a thread where those details are vague.
  • Clearly label your thread as open in the title!
  • Make sure your character is doing something that would make other characters interested in approaching them! Having your character go sit in the corner of a tavern can make it awkward for other characters to respond.  Do something that encourages interaction. Have your character stir up trouble, spill ale on someone, get chased by bees, rouse up a mob, make a fool of themselves in public. Anything that will draw attention to them!
  • When replying to an open thread, make sure to actually interact with the other character(s).
  • The more public the setting of your open thread, the higher the chance of a reply. It's easier for more players to think up a reason why their character is also in the town square with your character than to come up with a reason why their character is also deep in an underground catacomb.

Remember: on RotE, "open" means that the thread is open to anyone joining in at any time, no matter how many pages long that thread is. If you no longer wish for anyone else to join in your open thread, be sure to mark it as closed/private. :3 For anyone joining one of the longer open threads, be sure to read through it and understand what's going on before you hop in!

Rest assured, I see all of you lovely people's posts, but expect me to be a bit slower responding.

Rping with the new guy?
« Reply #14 on: February 11, 2013, 12:00:57 PM »
Well I just got my first character done (link in my character directory if you're curious), and I've been thinking of some open rps but I usually have trouble making them interesting.

I don't know if this is the place to put this but anyone have any open rp to join? One that wasn't posted months ago and has been inactive since (as I see many of those) is preferred  :)

(Will also be putting this message in a new topic in the plotting center, just in case~)

This one got a couple replies already, but then the other player disappeared.  Soooo I'm opening it back up since nothing has really happened yet!  I figure it can just pick up right from where it's at!
