Looking potentially for a co-mod, definitely for players, for this game. I've tried once before to start it but it spluttered and died before it really had a life, so I'm trying again - it's been overhauled, revamped, and all those other good things. I've been hard at work making it look as lush as possible! Please give it a look if you have the time :)

Would anyone be interested in getting a zombie game started? (more than stumbling corpses) The severe lack of them on this server is disappointing and disturbing.

I have two panfandom game ideas and I'd like to get one or the other off the ground. At the risk of posting it here and then seeing someone steal them, I'll post both of the ideas. though they're probably not as great as I'm thinking lol These are really old ideas I never did anything with.

virtual insanity )

idea 2 )

Anyway, the first one is fairly complex, more thought out and the second one can use some work. It's vaguer. I'd prefer doing the first one more because I've never seen it done before. I think it's unique? and could be interesting. I'd like to know if anyone would be interested in this. If so, would anyone be willing to co-mod? (Serious though) I'm great at keeping up with applications, holds, keeping things in order but there are times I need someone to collaborate with me on ideas for mod run plots. Sometimes my brain just doesn't work.

I imagine the first idea has endless possibilities.

RPO game interest?

Heya! Out of curiosity I was wondering if people here would be in the market for a game based on the world built by Ernest Cline in "Ready Player One"...?

I've got some ideas for a PB/OC game that would really just be borrowing the world structures and maybe some worldly canon backstory. No canon characters would be playable for the most part.

Since the online Ready Player One wiki isnt even up to date/accurate I'd pretty much be doing a lot of the world breakdown from scratch. theory people probably wouldnt even have to of read the book to be able to play. But, I want to gauge interest before engaging in the time suck of building it all out.

This might even be a better question to ask in a year after the Spielberg adaption comes out. But I figured I'd put out the feelers now and go from there! Thanks in advance!

Game Directory

Would there be interest in a game directory community? Instead of new ads being posted constantly for the same games over and over, each game would post one time and then players could search by tags for games that met what they were looking for?

mods? creative souls?

I posted this concept as an interest check on rpg-d, and got some great feedback, and I'm hoping to find abled beings who would like to help shape a rather extensive, magical world into game fruition once again.

I did this game is 2008 called Augury. It was about magical families coming together, with each family holding it's own head of house that was based on a magical school from Dungeons & Dragons. The journal was deleted, sadly. However, in 2008 my eighteen-year-old self posted an ad with the entire plot on ~wanna_rp, and for kicks, you can view it here.

In 2016 I'd like to reattempt said game, but give it a more Game of Thrones, political vibe, filled with witch hunters and backstabbers with some juicy character development. If you'd like, you can view my interest check here.

I'm looking for creative souls in hashing out surnames, family backgrounds for the houses, city locations, etc. I'm alone on this one, and I really need some brainstorming to really get the creative flowing. I'm also considering hosting the renewed game on jcink, versus journaling, and am hoping to find someone who is a chameleon in roleplaying platforms.

This is mostly curiosity rather than annoyance, but in general, if you have a character journal at a gpsl, is it usual etiquette to only use that journal for the gpsl or is it accepted that you can seek other lines with that journal? I just found it a little odd seeing it, personally, but I don't know if general gpsl rules are different to communities.

The x year rule - how do you usually see it used? Should it be to do with the real life age of the pb, or age-appropriate to the icons used? I always thought it was to do with the real life age, nothing to do with icons used. So I couldn't play Eric Dane (guy in my icon) at 24, because he's 43 - I could play him anywhere from 36 to 50 in a game with the seven year rule, for example.

But I have someone wanting to use a pb in a game I run who is using the age appropriate in the icons reason. I have the seven year rule in effect and it's been in effect for a long time. But on the other hand, is this a modly hill to die on, when the icons do work as a younger character?

Seeking advice

So I have a small gpsl with a niche interest (would rather not go further into detail on what it is). Long story short, there's a particular player with said niche interest who ragequit the game a while back. However, they are trying to come back, again and again, with new characters. To the point of asking for lines against players that they have antagonized and hurt in the past while pretending to be a completely different player, or at least not disclosing that they are the player from before.

I don't know what to do. We basically allow everyone in who applies. I can't think of a good reason to refuse them membership.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to handle this issue?

Acceptable or Worthy of Rejection?

I've recently found myself in a sticky and uncomfortable situation that, quite frankly, I need some advice on from other mods. Currently, I've waited about a day and half for an OC applicant to make some kind of OOC note or disclaimer stating that they've used information from a canon character wiki with only minor changes made and a link back to the page. I asked them to do this because I was not comfortable accepting the application as-is (because, let's face it, dire warnings from high school and college of plagiarism ran rampant through my head), but the longer I'm waiting for the changes to be made, the more I'm uncomfortable with the whole thing. Long story short, is what they've done considered acceptable in the RP world and is what I've asked them to do also acceptable or should I be flat out rejecting this application?

Updated (6:37am EST): An idea that I've thought about since initially posting this—Offer the applicant the alternative of playing the canon character but allowing them to diverge from a certain canon point. This would also include an entirely different PB and allow them to use the PB of their choice instead of the PB that is canon. It just seems to me that if all they're doing is slapping on alternate name and only changing the surname of the canons alias that maybe they should play the canon character and just diverge from the canon. This seems reasonable to me, but thoughts would be immensely appreciated.

I'm looking for co-mod(s) to discuss several different game options with, since the gpsls I try to start with friends never seem to go anywhere and I'd actually like to... well, play.

Dec. 27th, 2015


Is it just me, or are there only a handful of RP options around these days? Everything is either a) Harry Potter, b) superheroes, c) supernatural-themed, d) celeb/faux celeb. And the few games that don't follow the "norm" are basically gpsls with little to no activity going on.

This isn't a complaint, really. I'm genuinely curious. Is that all the majority of people are interested in?

Any tips for getting a game off the ground which doesn't include the aforementioned settings?

Seeking Co-Mod(s)

Anyone interested in co-modding a game in the Mortal Instruments universe? With the show coming around the corner, I have a feeling there will be a lot of interest but I could be wrong. The universe will be canon, but I'm aiming to step away from playing canon characters in game--this of course could change.

Nov. 17th, 2015


I am looking for someone to bounce ideas off of about a Cthulhu Mythos/cosmic horror game - I keep getting lost in my ideas and need someone to kind of help sort out some kinks. (My original idea was for a panfandom boarding school game and I keep trying to go back to that but I'm not sure how.) Any up for plotting or just unraveling an idea?

(Also potentially looking for a co-mod? If it turns out to be a functional idea.)

Non-Supernatural Themed Games

I made this game because I couldn't find anything like it out there - something with no magic, no werewolves or vampires or zombies, something that isn't post-apocalyptic or set in a world other than our own...

I guess the question now is, where do I find players? I mean obviously, advertising in all the usual places is a good first step. But on places like rp_vents, people are always saying about how they want threads, and well written characters, and comms that aren't just lyrics posts... I guess I wanna know where they hang out.

...also any tips about moderating that people wanna give me, would be greatly appreciated... I mean I've played in enough games that I have a rough idea how to go about it (including one game that taught me how NOT to mod, haha) but I'm not silly enough to think I know it all.

Sep. 1st, 2015


Ugh I want to make a Pre-ouat/possibly neverland centric game. But I have the worst luck getting games off the ground,nor do I want to run it by myself. I have a half baked premise for it but....basically if I build it would anyone help run it, or show up?

Calling all Mods

(Cross Posted)
I've got a concept for a DC Comics Panfandom game I'd like to get off the ground, but I'm in need of a/some co-mod(s) to help me realize it. My strengths are in the writing/narrative aspects, though I can muddle my way though some coding when I have to, but I'm really after a partner to help me run the thing. I've had a few really promising games in the past that ended up going downhill because I wasn't able to devote enough attention once they got started, so someone who can bring their own strengths and ideas to the table would be appreciated. If you're interested, lets brainstorm. Here's a hint of what I'm thinking of...


Sep. 28th, 2014



My co-mod and I are ready to bring in some new blood, so to speak, over at [info]havenwood. We also like to try and split up the work between us as evenly as possible so we're thinking a schedule is the way to go for us. But, we also want to reach as many people as possible in terms of time (if that makes sense?). We're a panfandom game that caters heavily to OCs with an original concept and a supernatural/paranormal theme/setting. Our players come from a variety of TZs in the US (Eastern, Central, & Pacific) and while we're fairly sure of where to advertise, we're not so positive of when the best time to advertise is. We'd really appreciate some advice on this aspect of recruiting so any and all suggestions thrown our way would be taken under advisement.

I'm looking for help getting a Mass Effect game off it's feet. It'd be a panfandom game, set during the events of the third game- specifically, the Reaper War. I'm open for a co mod or just an interested party to help me get things set up. I've got a lot of story and background stuff set up, but coding and visuals aren't a strength of mine, so help of any kind would be appreciated. I'm really enthusiastic about this concept, as I feel like the setting is perfect for a panfandom setting, and the Reaper War offers a real unique twist, and opportunities for fun missions for characters.

Comment here to get hold of me, even if its just to say you like the concept. Cheers!
