Is there anyone out there that would be interested in co-modding a present time Harry Potter game that focuses on character development and mostly original characters? I have a bucket full of ideas but would love someone to chat back and forth with on the best set-up and rules. I can do all of the html and page set ups. Is there a good place to go to search this sort of thing out?

Guidance?

Hello [info]rp_tutorials! I have some questions for you all and hopefully I will be able to find some help. I have been wanting to create a new Harry Potter RPG for awhile now for original characters, whether still in school or out of; whatever is the most needed. I miss HP rp a whole lot and I'd like to revisit it. It has been a long time since I have done the "old school" community thing. I would like to create a place for good writers, dedicated players and people that would like to develop characters and original ideas in the Harry Potter universe. I know how to make a community look nice HTML and graphic wise and how to help members with that sort of thing, but it's been so long since I have done it or joined a place, that I am not sure where to begin. What are the writing requirements like now? How do you find people to join your games if you don't know anyone on this side of Insanejournal if you don't know anyone ooc? Any tips, help or love or willingness to team up would be great! I am also sorry if this is not the proper place for this.

hey people! i've been hungry for a new game lately, but all i can seem to find are post-apocalyptic, mutants, harry potter or pan-fandom games. i'm interested in simple character development games -- high school/college or small town/big city, where it's just regular people living regular lives! does anyone know of any of these games that exist?! also, if there's not a wide variety of these games, would anyone be interested in one? i have a high school community that i created awhile back and it never took off. i would love to relaunch it and take time out of my boring adult life to vicariously live through free-spirited teens! thanks :-D

Leave a comment here with a laundry list of fandoms that you want to see more RPs of, be it GPSLs or RPGs. The point of this 'survey' is to gather feedback of obscure fandoms, or fandoms that are popular or well-known: yet there are no RPs available for it. The reasons why could be because there is no obvious mainstream interest; there aren't enough fans; or it's considered 'old'.

I am interested in franchises, not plots/premises, ala high school settings, desert island, crossover and panfandom, e.g no one's melded fandom X with fandom B before!

Please do not include fandoms like Harry Potter, because that is a clear example of a 'popular, widespread' fandom. This post is not about finding more Potter RPs because there are not enough Quiddtich games, etc.

AMC's The Walking Dead
Pirates of the Caribbean
Bioshock 1, 2, Infinite
Fallout 3, New Vegas
The Last of Us

Added: Red Dead Redemption + Undead Nightmare
'80s Fright Night
Interview with the Vampire ('90s filmverse + old!Rice book canon)
Alice in Wonderland: adapted original literature
Once upon a time

ETA: The Walking Dead appears to be in the lead. It's giving ideas to me and one of my mates.

[Updated: 10/29/12] What Works, What Doesn't Work

Update: Thank you to [info]jealousheart, [info]hp_anon, & [info]nympholepsy for your input. It was all very helpful and what I'm walking away with is that visuals + descriptions is what a typical Player is looking for or expects/wants to see.

=====

Hello everyone!

I am currently working on a "map" for [info]havenwood and I'm curious what other players have found useful in games they have played in previously. Have you found a map-like visual helpful? Are they used often? Or, have you found that a locations/description page with images with a general representation of a place/building better, more useful, or more common?

Any suggestions would be appreciated and really, really helpful! :)

heard of and thus use the "Universal RPG Rating" system?

It's popular on Invisionfree/Proboards/Jcink/otherboardhost RPGs, but I've yet to see it being implemented on journal role-plays outside of my own sandboxes. (As far as I know, I regularly browse ad communities.)

Personally, I find it does the job perfectly: the 'job' meaning what is and isn't allowed in a game, concerning language, sexual content and violence. The order is Language, Sexual content, Violence, and is colour-coded for our convenience. It's ranked in stages: 0, 1, 2, 3. You rate your game according to what levels are acceptable. Green 0 is the lowest level, whilst orange 3 is the highest. It's a simple matter of clicking 3 tick-boxes, one per category, and copy/pasting the supplied banner code into your game ad- or wherever you think is best to display your rating.

When I come across a game rated 2-2-3, 3-2-3 or  2-1-2, I understand what the game will entail. I either dive into the game links, or I hit the Back button.

On the other hand, with a typical game that's proclaimed as R, PG, NC-17... What constitutes an R or MA rated movie (or RPG, in this case) changes with each individual game. To me, R means zero censorship. That said, I'm somewhat lost when I find a game that's R, but I'm not permitted to write gore, swear, or explore substance abuse. This should've effectively lowered the R rating.

I've long since learned that R simply means that you have to be 18yo in order to join- the rules themselves may require players to keep profanity and graphic violence to a minimum.

What do you use to rate your game? Are you interested in the Universal RPG Rating system?

I am curious, and I want this to be a constructive mission. At the end of the day, I'd like to have a tally of yes and no answers. I do not want personal life stories; a simple yes or no is good enough! The feedback that will be most helpful to me are answers like "Yes, I use this system because it's concise and crystal clear, instead of opting for the MPAA system which I think is inappropriate for role-play." , as opposed to "The MPAA system sucks! I like ______."

Seeking a sliding cast directory

I know there was once one posted but the entry has been deleted, so, help me [info]rp_tutorials people, you're my only hope!

I am looking for an easy to update/alphabetize character directory that uses usericon size pics. One that will automatically shuffle itself when you go and insert a character alphabetically, instead of having to shuffle the tables all manually - because I am fairly html illiterate and need the ease of just copying and pasting.

So if such a thing exists out there I would be delighted if someone could point me in the direction! Thanks!

Hi ~rp_tutorials! I'm working on a HP game basically from the ground up, and it would take place in a setting that, since it's not a canon setting, would require a lot of detailed information to keep the players accurate.

I'm wondering, how much information is too much information? How much of the game canon should be viewable to players looking to apply or hold at a game? Do you find a certain amount of information intimidating or helpful?
