I've started a new Heroes based RPG - rp_shadesofgray
- and have picked up some terrific players. It probably helps that each and every one of the initial group was hand picked and invited. A couple of others asked to join after some interaction on sixwordstories
which is some of the best crack I've ever been involved with, and I'm thrilled to have those people too. If you're playing over there and on my friends list, THANK YOU.
As a lot of you know I've been RPing over on Twitter since the end of March. Met some good players there. Met some bad players there too. I invited the good ones over to rp_shadesofgray
too. I'm a picky bastard about my games. I always have been on Twitter you have no screening process. Anyone who wants to play can, and you get all manner of Mary Sues and Power Gamers. On LJ it's different. I can give into my control freak nature. My co-mod and I have final say over who gets into rp_shadesofgray
and who doesn't.
Right now I've got someone who is not going to be a good fit trying to come in. She's already failed in applying properly. Didn't seem to be able to read the rules, and she thinks that the Twitter world RP is all it takes to be let in. I'm sorry, but it's not. If you can't answer simple questions about your character's past and bio, and what you're going to do to make that character fit into our 'verse then we don't need you. I neither have the time nor the inclination to explain how to operate within LJ to a newbie nor the want to explain proper RP etiquette to someone who can't follow simple directions to apply for a character. We'll see what she comes up with on my last question about her character before co-mod and I decide.
Yeah I'm a bastard. So sue me.
