RIP Darkersls


[info]rp_connect
[info]rp_tutorials
The loss of Darkersls has pushed me to create this: [info]plot_central. This community can be used to put your ideas forward for a psl or gpsl if you're searching for a plot line or have an idea you want to see if anyone bites at. Line requests or line ideas for games can also be posted there as well. Game ads are not welcome but can be posted to the sister community [info]rpg_connect. Right now it's only me running it, but if anyone wants to jump on board, feel free to poke me. Spread the word and join!

[Image Editing] Photoshop Actions


[info]wastintime

Download: Mediafire

Here is my set of actions that I use to edit Teen Wolf screencaps in Photoshop. The show’s caps are notoriously dark and aggravating to work with so I came up with a base set of actions that I use to work with the caps. Each action isn’t going to work perfectly on every capture and will require individual image tweaking, but these are a good place to start. See examples behind cut.

Samples )

Please, credit [info]wastintime in resources if using these actions. Thank you!

How to Nolanize a (comic) character: a few suggestions towards fiercly real RP characters


[info]wordsmith
[info]rp_tutorials
While this was originally written for the Gotham Falls game ([info]gotham_mod ), where the Nolanization of comic characters is quite relevant, I think it might be rather useful for anyone looking to write in a darker, gritty world filled with hardship.
There has been lots of tutorials posted here about how to write good, multi-layered, well-researched, soundly motivated characters. This addition deals with creating characters that have messed up lives and suffering from the the results of living in dark places.

In Gotham...bad things happen to good people... )

If you've ever tried to setup a massive Harry Potter game, you know how dreadful~ it is to come up with names for shops, newspapers, radio shows, schools, houses, organizations, occupations, spells, creatures, songs, etc. that aren't already in the universe. Therefore, here is a post for the creative types to show off their awesomeness and share things that they've come up with for their games. If you see something in here and want to run wild with it, PLEASE remember to credit [info]rp_tutorials or the source of the information. No one likes a map thief, okay. I'll get us started with a few that I can recall off the top of my head...

• Quiddtich Quarterly: akin to Sports Illustrated or ESPN magazine
• SNITCH: akin to Cosmo or GQ
• EPICK: akin to Rolling Stone

Shop/Restaurant/Club/Etc. Names
• Eureka! - potion shop

So when I was doing the coding for my current game, I stumbled across this fabulous post, and I liked the idea. And then I decided that I wanted to give myself a permanent headache make a cast list that uses images instead of icons, and handwriting fonts because those are a pain in the ass pretty, and the crests from Pottermore because I like those, and all the things...so if you want a pretty cast list, aren't as lazy about opening photoshop/gimp/etc as I am, and don't care about it being slightly large and impractical, this is the cast list for you!

Harry Potter game ideas!


[info]godcilla
[info]rp_tutorials
I have a million ideas and not enough time, so I make lists instead of all these ideas and hope that one day I will have half a moment to give it the attention it deserves. Alas, as I get older, I have come to realise that this is not the case. I will never have enough time. So here's a list of game concepts I'm releasing ~into the wild~. If you do use any of these, or if they inspire you, please let me know and link your final product! I'd love, love, love to see what you've done! These are some that my flist seem to like best from a longer list.

free to a good home! )

Harry Potter Character Profile


[info]bee_charmer
[info]rp_tutorials
I'm finally deciding to branch out a bit and do a Harry Potter game, but my friend and I decided to make it panfandom. I've never written a character for Harry Potter before, so I'm not sure where to begin, really. Would anyone be willing to code a profile template I could use to develop my character? I want to do this right.

I know I saw a link in here some time ago where you could find all the name-only canon characters from Harry Potter. I've gone back a bunch of pages and tried searching all the tags I could think of that it would fit, with no luck.

If you could point me in the direction of the post, or just link me to the website, I'd really, really appreciate it!

Thanks in advance!

Because we all suck at doing this correctly. Originally by [info]splott in 2008, but I added a couple decades for next-gens and Tom Riddle's years!

I'm pretty sure I found this here before, but I can't remember where and have tried to all of my ability and been unable to find it.

There's a LiveJournal that looks at British Slang specifically from the Harry Potter point of view. Do any of you fine people know the name of it/have a link?

It would greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Schedule Codes


[info]spiffynerd
[info]rp_tutorials
Hey everybody! I bring you guys some Harry Potter related tables that I'm currently using at the game I'm co-moding, [info]incanescomods /shamelessplug!

The first is a class schedule, very similar in appearance to the one I already posted on this community ages ago here. The difference is that I've gone and split the classes into sections, for maximum canon accuracy!



Code + Info beneath the cut! )

My other offering today is a fairly fancy-looking Quidditch match schedule!

For those of you that play in fandoms but still look through ~pbads in hopes that something will come up, I created [info]fanads that will serve a similar purpose. Only fandom advertisements will be permitted in the community, and hopefully it will prove to be a better source for finding games of that nature than ~pbads!

Community.

[info]fandommod
[info]rp_tutorials
I don't know if this is allowed here, if not let me know and I'll delete it.

I've just made an ad community based on my own frustrations when looking for a game. I remember back on GJ there were a few fandom only ad communities that had been set up. So far the only thing like this I've seen is [info]fandom_psls but that's not very handy for actual games. There were a few communities on GJ that actually didn't allow Harry Potter game ads due to the sheer size of the fandom and amount of Harry Potter games which were being run at any one time and flooding ad communities.

So I've set up this with the hopes that we'll see more single fandom games of less popular fandoms being advertised where they are accessible and easy to sort through without 1000 Harry Potter ads. I've also included the request that people tag their entries to make searching for games specific to one particular fandom easier for players.

The community is [info]fandomads and posting access is unmoderated. I hope people find this useful.

I'd like to make one note that the rule against Harry Potter ads doesn't have anything to do with not liking the fandom or not wanting to promote it as I am a HP fan myself, however the idea behind this community is just to promote the less popular fandoms.

Maps! Maps! And more Maps!

[info]this_example
[info]rp_tutorials
I come here bringing you maps! First a cool trick, and then a couple of Harry Potter-specific maps.

First up, how to make a click-able map, mixed with some hidden tables just for kicks. Here's a live preview, since I'm not really sure how to explain it.

Clickable Maps )

And now onto the fandom maps!

Diagon Alley )

Hogsmeade )

So those are complete maps and codes with all the information filled in. Quite a few of those stores are original creations of mine, and I'm perfectly fine with people taking them and using them with two exceptions - 'Dos Diablos' from the Diagon Alley map and 'Croeso' from the Hogsmeade map. I'm using those somewhere else, and they've been deleted from the codes posted above. Also, there's a bunch of repeated names and such so if you're using them both in the same game you might want to fix that.

Below are some blank maps that you can color in with your own information.

Some Gamewide Plot Ideas

[info]nimbuschick
[info]rp_tutorials
Every once in a while, as a mod, it's a good idea to do something out-there to get your game buzzing. This tutorial is about how to run a few game-wide plots that virtually everyone in your game can participate in. The world of Harry Potter makes it pretty easy to do crazy things. There are also some general High School ideas and some Marvel ideas too. These plots help shake things up and give people an excuse to act out of character once in a great while. Don't put these plots right on top of each other, but every couple of months it might be a good idea.

The first thing you need to make sure you do is make an OOC announcement making it clear what is going on and that participation is optional. Nearly every game has that one player who thinks that everyone is out to get them, so make it clear that nobody is being forced into anything, but this is an opportunity for plot and fun!
