Admittedly, we may have lost some players. We will have to find out whom that is and go on without them.
This starts back up tomorrow!
I got a replacement monitor. Will be going on vacation until the 22nd. If everyone is still here when I return, I'm more than down to continue this!
WTF Happened? did you rage quit a game?


Step children.
My current situation. Everyone hang tight.


<Snipped quote by Hedgehawk>

Gotta say it would be awesome to have more NRP guides. I've always wanted to play an NRP but the learning curve seems steep and, talking with people in the past, it doesn't seem like newcomers are very welcome. It's hard to know where to start.

<Snipped quote by Theodorable>

People come to this website and find this forum specifically because they are looking to write and create stories. If they wanted to just play a game they could go on Steam. Even tabletop RPGs still focus on creating a narrative at their heart, even if you've got someone who just wants to kill everything and become all powerful, that's still a story they're telling about who that character is. Even in game-style roleplays with mechanics the aim is still to create a series of events that tie together a satisfying narrative. I find it hard to believe that NRP would be different, otherwise you'd surely just have a bunch of semi-random events crashing into each other.

Not saying that the initial post is wrong (though imo it doesn't seem very actionable for the guide section?), but i think you'd be very hardpressed to find a roleplaying game that wasn't also a story, or any roleplay here on this site that wasn't a story.

I like this quote from you because it proves my point.

The action--the character wanting to kill everything and become all power--BECOMES the narrative.

Are the Mataki from another game or something?

Theo if I post before you’re finished, can you make sure no one kills me in this or the next turn? 


I literally haven't--and likely won't--read any IC posts until I'm done with my IC post.
I have updated the Aureus section. Two more to go.
@Theodorable

Didn't you mention something about us only able to advance a race only three times?


I don't think so? Can you show me where I said that?
That was a good post @Schylerwalker I'm genuinely terrified of The King.

@Theodorable Considering my previous action with expanding my order with warriors has not gone through yet, could I retcon that for this turn? I'm going to save that energy for this turn if that's okay.


Yes, mostly because that order was superfluous anyway.
