Alright, if was only going to be Catmoon and Foaly'sGirl, I'll do it. Definitely. We have to end this thing with a bang.

I'll try it out. :D So you're writing the kind of thing that would be in the first post of a roleplay thread, yes? With setting, plot, etc.?

Yes, exactly :D

I might extend the deadline so that more people can join in - like Bkkprgirl said, it should go off with a bang! So just say if you think it should be extended.

YES I say extend the deadline!!! I'm really excited and I want to actually have time to make my post good!

By the way, is it okay if we do a more "writerly" approach to this? Like, setting it up almost as the beginning of a story, and then opening it up so people can join? That's kind of what I had in mind, but I've never written one before, so I don't know if they're actually like that or not.

That's what I was going to do, regardless of rules and customs of role playing. Cuz I know nothing about role playing. I can imagine worlds, though.

That being said, I have everything planned out! Except, I dunno if I'll have time. ahahah, probably not. Maybe. eh.

Make the time! :D

Hmm, okay. You can take a writerly approach to it, but it's still not going to be like the opening of a book (because no book opens with just an entire description of the background of a race/city/story etc.) When describing the place/setting/plot, by all means you can approach it in a writerly fashion but remember who your audience is (people thinking of joining) and what it is (a role-play introductory post.)

Extending deadline now.

What is it? Cause I read two different things. Is it an introduction first entry post or the plot? Cause if it's the plot then I'm pretty much done.
"Edwin, what's the plural for Ox?"
"Oxen. The farmer used his oxen."
"Brian,"
"What?"
"What's the plural for box?"
"Boxen! I bought two boxen of doughnuts."

Is there any limit to how long it can be? Mine's getting a bit lengthy--somewhat longer than the initial posts in the Role-play forum that I've checked out, anyway. Other than some quick editing, though, I'm pretty much done!

Word count's on the first page, between 1000-1500 words.

You have two weeks. The challenge is to write up your own role-play, complete with detailed information about the type of world it is set in, the customs/way of life of the people there, what is the issue/problem that is going to drive the role-play etc. Your idea should be exciting, interesting and make people feel as if they want to join this role-play. Though we want to see detail, there should also be enough room for the story to develop, for things to emerge about characters and the society/world.


It is the setting, the plot, the type of species/people who live there, their culture etc. You can mention a character or two, but leave them vague so others can join in. It is not an introductory post as in from a character's point of view.

How exactly are we supposed to send in our posts anonymously? Should we give it to you Kitsy?

Deadline's on the first page, 13th Oct. Yes, send it to me please.

I'm going on holiday in the 20th until the 25th-ish. So you'll (probably) have to wait until then for voting, sorryyy.
