November EMP Meme

ENABLEMEPLZ

meme goes up on the last Saturday of every month

FOR GAME ADS:

Put an ad up with the characters / crew / pairings / fetish you want for your game under the correct game header. This meme is primarily going to be focused on DWRP games but IJ and LJ games are allowed.

ABSOLUTELY NO obnoxious coding (no font size > size 4 or 3 "big" tags, no banners, no blinking text, no obnoxious tables, no sparklies, no pictures). Use all the colors you like, but please remember 3 "big" tags is the limit and that's only for headers or title text rather than for all the text in an ad.

FOR GAME QUESTIONS:

RPers interested in a game can create a header for the game and ask questions about that game that aren't easy to find on faqs, such as the actual pace vs. what's listed/what kind of plots are run/if the game leans more towards plotty or slice of life/if a game leans more towards network or logs, etc. Both anon questions and anon answers are welcome in this section just like in the rest of the meme.

This thread is not for speaking about wank or drama in a game. There are anoncomms that exist for that. This thread is specifically for general questions about a game that rpers want to get perspective on from players already in the game. Answers can be slightly negative (such as saying app response is slow or that the plots are repetitive or similar things) but this should at least be worded politely. Unnecessary vitriol, any mention of personal drama or wank, or mod teams/individual mods/players being singled out, will be frozen and/or deleted.

FOR CHARACTER ADS:

Put up an ad about the characters you are offering. For PSL/1-on-1 ads, there is a separate subthread but for character ads for games, post directly to the meme post. Others will comment to you with the games/casts they want you to join.

There is a "Find a Castmate" section, where you can talk about a cast you play in at a game, and try to lure people to join it. Not all games post to the meme or have a "wanted" section, so players that want to tempt people to their cast on their own can use this section for it. Please format this the same as the PSL/1-on-1 section, where you post the canons in your subject. For the actual text of the ad you must use the "Find a Castmate" form provided at the bottom of this post so that these ads don't get huge. When listing who's currently in a cast, please do this in sentence form (with commas) rather than in list form.

ABSOLUTELY NO obnoxious coding, with the same rules as the Game Ads Section above.

If you're recommending a game to someone, try to match your suggestion to their needs. Try not to recommend the same game to every single ad, either.

DRAGON AGE

[personal profile] otiosity 2016-11-27 01:55 am (UTC)(link)
[game]: [community profile] thisavrou
[fandom]: DRAGON AGE
[game's current cast]: Marian Hawke, Fenris, Zevran Arainai, and Dorian Pavus.
[who I play]: Hawke!
[wanted]: VARRIC, Anders, Isabela, Sebastian, HAWKE SIBLINGS.... basically all of my precious DA2 buds. But ALSO Iron Bull, Cassandra, Cullen, Alistair, honestly, everyone and anyone.
[game info]: [community profile] savrou is a space game which can be a bit strange for Dragon Ages but I've found that Hawke (who I have had there for about six months) adapted really well because of the different sorts of events. There's been horror events, more humorous events, and action/adventure/fighting events. The AC is very easy and while there is a lot going on, it's very easy to keep up with and find a place to tag because it's all very low pressure. I've found it easy to get my character a job and find her motivation to keep up with the game. The pace is also quite slow too with less than a post per day on average. People are very good about backtags here.

I also posted last month with a similar add and was asked some of my favorite parts of the game and what the general atmosphere is like so I'm gonna copy pasta my response!

"It's s a mix of both SOL and horror/action events. We've definitely had more lighthearted events and more heavy ones too. The thing I like is that I feel like Sav offers a lot of options in it's events to make them what you want to make them. For example, in the current event, the ship is being attacked by creatures from the various canons of the characters and crashing. Some people are focusing on their character helping others out. Some are doing more action. Some are using some of the creatures (Envy demon aww yeah) to go a little bit darker places. There are always more than one prompt and many ways to roll with that prompt and do what you want for your character/cr.

In that sense my favorite event was similar. Last month the cast explored a colony and people could sign up for different areas to explore. Some people got to explore areas that gave them strange abilities, some learned more about the nature of the ship, and some like Hawke got pulled into a hunger style murder game. Between my assignment and the areas my cr was assigned I got to do a lot of different moods!

Ultimately, my real favorite part is all the people that I play with. I had been out of the RP scene for about a year and didn't really know anyone before I apped. But everyone at Sav is really welcoming and interested in creating CR and helping you create CR with their CR. I've gotten some great CR just from "hey my character also knows (character name), we should also get some CR!"."

Anyway if you are interested drop me a line! The calendar isn't open yet but apps should open in Dec and I would love ANYONE. ALL OF YOU. YES YOU RIGHT THERE.

would you know by chance if the game will be having a TDM before apps open?

It usually does! Unfortunately the calendar isn't updated yet but IIRC last time apps were open (October) the TDM was around the 4th and reserves opened around the 10th and apps around the 17th.

No super accurate but I hope that helps!
