A Story Teller Thinking of a Story To Tell

Member Seen 1 mo ago

Hello! I am A Story Teller, I do what my name implies usually.

For years I've been a DM across many games for friends, friends of friends, strangers who want to learn about it. I know some people here, but I won't say hello to you, I like the anonymity of telling my stories without friends thinking they can get away with things ;)

Every time I get an idea, these places form, worlds, nations, the people within them. I could thing of a million stories to tell in each one, but just writing was never enough, I needed people I couldn't predict, people I can't mold to just fit my narrative. I want my worlds to surprise me just as much as they surprise other people, to have unique and compelling people I couldn't have thought of myself to change these worlds in new an exciting ways.

I'll keep this brief, I have a lot of writing to do,

Things I like:
-Stories
-My animals
-Pizza
-Gaming

Things I despise:
-Vegans
-People who only play Highschool characters with an anime picture and want to be a main character.
-People who don't eat Pizza (They exist, it's terrible. No, really!)
-People who just stop showing up to an Rp without an exit strategy.

Questions? Go for it, I'm working on ideas for a while :)

@Madison Parker

I don't believe so, I have never seen the abbreviation, and Google isn't helping. If it's some fandom, I can learn it within a day or so.

@Madison Parker Are you asking me to write it or inviting me to yours? I'll do it either way, just curious :)

@Madison Parker, I love VTM, and there are others (albeit few and far between) who would love to delve into a WoD RP, whether its VTM or WWtA.

@A Story Teller, perhaps to your chagrin I am a carnivore and thus pizza is not an acceptable element of diet, worse still I do not actually like it as a food. Despite this, this particular sabertooth will grant you a welcome all the same. Should there be any questions whatsoever, please do ask of myself or really any of us members. Furthermore, I suggest if and when the opportunity strikes that one as yourself comes to join the official Roleplayer Guild Discord, although I will note that the majority of time spent there by members is in casual interaction, not so much the pursuit of roleplaying interests or business.

Not to derail this topic even further at that, @Hellion is correct, @Madison Parker. There are a number of us who would be pleased to see a World of Darkness topic at some point. It is worth mentioning at the very least as there are those seeking it out.

It has been quite a while since I've done world of Darkness, last time was a tabletop some years back. Could be fun.

@Madison Parker If you have some people interested, I'm sure we can work out a basic plot line based on interest that would appeal to everyone. If not, I can start writing something tonight.

Welcome!

Question:

How can a partner contribute to a rp without knowing the limits of the other? As in a scifi trying to be creative with the transwarp drive repairs only to be told it's not right. Now you get dropped for not participating and you liked the story. I mean you want to contribute, but dont really know where/how.

@amorphical Good morning!

I think it's important in a Sci-Fi setting to discuss a technology level before the story begins, or anything futuristic for that matter. If there's space exploration, what method is used? If there is combat, do people use laser weapons, or are you still conventional? How advanced is the AI, or things like implants and cybernetics?

An inherent issue with Sci-Fi can often be someone overestimating the advances of the world. That being said, if it was one little toss-up like that, there are really two easy options right away.

1. The person can just accept your idea, why not? The story works both ways, unless it ruins the whole plot or world.

2. Just rewrite the post, that lovely little edit button can work wonders! I had to rewrite a post yesterday from an Rp because a typo of "Trail" instead of "Train" made me think we were in a wagon. It happens, laugh it off, fix it.

Most importantly though, discuss that technology line with them, and interact with your partner when you want to introduce a new and more questionable one that wasn't discussed. If you think a tech might be too much, ask first.

I have some paperwork to go do before I make some posts I owe people, but feel free to ask any other questions you might have :)
