Okay. Exams are over so here we go.
Firstly, is everyone okay with having the tournament/competition set outside the real world? Shiaw explained it pretty well:
So basically what your saying, is that we could have an RP about anything: Like the classic sci-fi mystery, murder mystery, romance, or any other genre we can think of?
That's any place, any time, any storyline.
We need a fancy name for this tournament of sorts. Can anyone come up with one? That's very important as we can hardly have a competition without something good to call it. I was thinking something along the lines of a medieval name, something to do with quills or words or whatever. PM me any ideas you've got please because I don't have any!
Now, we have a few ideas for competitions.
+ Most interesting character
This would be one post, we'd put a word minimum/limit on it later, where you describe a character and what they're doing in a situation/world that you make up.
+ Most imaginative/best role-play storyline
+ Best fight scene.
You'd pair up with someone else to write this.
+ Best in-character post.
I'd create a random storyline or situation, and each person would respond in their own way.
+ Best dualogue/maybe more
Again pair up or in groups and do maybe one post each in a role-play.
More ideas people!
Then we could have best attention to detail, best writing which we would choose from all the posts and see who has consistantly written the best etc.
But yeah, I can't think up all of this alone, I need your help!
Also, can you get hold of others on AFC who maybe havn't role-played in a while or aren't active anymore and get them to join in? I may advertise it so maybe we can get some people who don't normally role-play but are interesting in writing can have a go. Again, talk to friends on AFC who don't rp but like writing and might be interested. It'd be more fun with more people ^_^
Also, if this is going to work I need to know that a fair few people will be participating. We need a minimum of 8 people I think, so I'll put up a poll and vote to say you'll be taking part.
So, I've been looking round the RP forum and I have to say, the quality of some the posts here are absolutely brilliant. Anyway, I was thinking that since you guys seem to know what you're doing, we hold a few RP competitions around here.
Unfortuantely, this is probably the busiest time of the year for most of us (as most of us are students and exam time, at least for me, starts soon.) I know most of us will be off in the summer months, so I was thinking of doing them around then.
This thread is for suggestions, what kind of competitions do you guys want? Is there anyone here who would be willing to help organise them?
There could be competitons for the best fight scene, the most interesting character, the best dualogue/more people-logue xD, most interesting RP idea etc etc. Maybe even an on-going RP which has two sides/gangs and you guys can play that out.
I'm thinking of having this competitons outside the AF universe, as it's quite restricting. So yeah, tell me what y'all think (:
