Just who am I? Am I the same person that wakes up after a night of rest, or am I someone completely different? What would I do if I were to discover that I am a doppelgänger of my own existence? These are thoughts that I have asked myself for as long as I can remember; an endless cross-examination of queries and questions that still reveal no true answer nor solution. I can however tell you what I currently am, what I have done in my past, and what it is that I wish to accomplish for my future.

To begin this journey I will introduce myself with my official title. My name is Nutter, and that is all you need to know... for now. The truth is that I have been called this alias for the longest of times, dating back to my childhood days as an identity that parasitically infects the tongue of every person I cross paths with. I cannot control this contagion nor do I have a desire to hinder it's spread; therefore I live, breathe, and spread my madness to all those around me, all the while enjoying every moment of it.

While my life has been filled with a variety of adventures and achievements there have been times where these moments have been hindered by the shackles and shadows of my very existence. They are challenges, struggles even, which have shaped me into the very person I am today. Those who I have met often tell me how I am a unique combination of knowledgeable, funny, and helpful, all topped with a small bit of wit. I enjoy having the regular banter with those who I can call my friends, I relish in my creative imagination, and I am a social introvert—if there ever was such a thing.

When the day comes to a close I guess none of this really matters. I cannot paint a picture of myself within your own mind from the expressive words that I have typed onto this screen. All I can do is spark an interest to see if you are willing to take the bait, willing to leap down that rabbit hole, and willing discover the identity of the man behind the mask known as NuttsnBolts.

I have been roleplaying for a several years now, focusing on mostly casual to advance level story writing. If these adventures are rich, detailed and filled with twists and turns around every corner, then you will surely have me hooked in for the ride. I do find that a large portion of the characters tend to be female—a personal choice that seems to also extend towards gaming as well—but as I become a better writer I am challenging myself to improve my male personas.

On the topic of writing style I tend to use colours, pictures, music, and a variety of stylised formatting techniques as I do have a difficult time in concentrating on walls of white text. Seeing as how I can be quite the visual and artistic individual I have found this tactic can be effectively used to counter this unusual dilemma. Generally I will try my best with grammar and spelling however if you happen see any edits then I have most likely latched onto a word to use it several times in a writing piece, or made a dumb spelling mistake.

Any other roleplaying details about myself and my interests can be found in the Personal Links below as I should be keeping those updated with designs, ideas and preferences. If you have any other questions you are free to PM me at any point. I love chatting with people and I am pretty open minded to most topics.

I believe what has to be noted is that there is really two (maybe three) types of ERPs.

Firstly you will have the erotica, or literotica cause that's a cool word, where a story will be a mixture of a romance, love, and intercourse. The balance between those aspects may vary with some leaning more to one than the other, but these will be the roleplays that read much like a story with actual characters, depth, and a built up understanding as to who they may be.

Next you will come across what is just simply porn writing. This will be the roleplays that will play out with little to no plot, and can be pretty much summed up in a single comic strip. It's not wrong, there's nothing against this type of writing, but for many writers this may be where they draw the lines on what they feel comfortable with. To compare it to food the first example would be like a three course meal ending on dessert while this one is a pizza and Sara Lee icecream cake that you order from Dominos.

The last one shouldn't be counted but I've seen too many of them, and some people have taken it so far as to earn themselves a ban... but it's "that weird shit". Being a mod... seeing some of the things that get reported... I think the worse thing I have seen, and thank christ it was not on this forum, was a smut between a human and a Ridley Scott xenomorph Alien. I would love to see that stuff off the forum but PMs are private so it becomes difficult to monitor.
Removed, and the post after too.@Raddum
@Halvtand Done.

And no, members have never been able to delete their own posts. There was a trial for GMs deleting the posts in their RPs, but it had issues so it never got implemented.
Lots of good points but ask yourself firstly if it was the players or the GMs that were the main factors in the RP's death. Knowing where the trouble lies is knowing where you can address the concerns and if you need to apply remedies such as additional GMs, secondary characters, a discussion on plot, recruitment, or even the last resort case of a reboot/sequel.

One RP that I've been a part of is an RP that's gone over 2 years and several variations. We've added and removed players, rebooted into a failed attempt, and even had the original GM leave us, but the story has kept on going because the 5 of us have turned our characters into personalities through dedication (even at one stage I left the RP and returned with a fresh character to rejoin with). This is a rare case, but it has worked because as players we made an effort to help each other out and build the world as much as we could.

You need to listen to your GM, but your GM needs to listen to you as well. Too often I see RPs die because of a lack of communication and it can be because of silly reasons too.

Smith's Rest, New Anchorage | Outside HQ

The Australian waltzed into the cafeteria, dreary and obviously suffering from a hangover from the previous day's drinking session. She obviously hadn't learned the art of pacing herself and today was going to be another one of those write offs with her nursing the agony of a throbbing headache. She could have sworn that she hadn't drunk that much, but did it really matter considering she was still sitting in limbo waiting for their next mission to start up?

That's right... limbo. While Stein, Alan, and Percy had managed to score tickets to a vacation away from base, Tahlia along with many of the others were stuck in the same song and dance that they had performed for the past eternity; a sloppy scoop of gruel for the daily intake of energy.

Tahlia dropped the tray of food onto the table, watching as it bounced once or twice before it decided to kick the cutlery onto the metal surface. She didn't really want to make the effort to collect the utensils but it was an unfortunate necessity with the alternate being to eat with her hands, much like a caveman from a millennia ago. How embarrassing would that be, to act like a complete ass hat in front of the others. It'd almost be as bad as hitting on Per...

Tahlia sat there like a stunned rabbit, retracing the thoughts that had passed through her mind.

"Hitting on Percy..."

The deep inhale of air as Tahlia recollected the fuzzy memories of the previous night; she had hit on Percy. The red-haired coward who brings his child onto base without any thought to what dangers that might bring to the team, and yet somehow he still manages to have some form of a family while she sat alone with a tray full of sludge in this frozen wasteland.

"God fucking dammit," the former commander slurred as she pushed away the tray, instantly loosing her appetite and choosing instead to light up a morning smoke.

@Burning Kitty Might leave that one for the time being as the GM commented and he seemed to joke about the dudes comment. I can keep an eye out for if they cause an issue, but that'll be another story.

As for bringing up stuff when you're not the GM, that's fine. We can have a look and make a judgement call if need be. Anything major and we'd contact the GM.
