January 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. It's okay if part of your game rec is copy-pasted (such as what the game's about), but at least some part of the rec must be personalized to their ad. Try not to recommend the same game to every single ad, either. Ad spam that isn't individualized in some way will also be screened.

IN GENERAL:

Don't be a dick. This isn't one of the anoncomms, so any snide comments or unnecessary commentary on the RP plans of others will be screened.

DRAGON AGE

[personal profile] mewnifestos 2017-01-28 08:17 pm (UTC)(link)
[game]: [community profile] empatheias
[fandom]: Dragon Age
[game's current cast]: Anders
[who I play]: Anders!
[wanted]: Hawke, Isabela, Fenris, Merrill, Varric, Aveline, Carver, Bethany, Origins/DAI companions, other protags, Awakening Wardens, Templars??, anybody/everybody else i forgot seriously i will shower you with love if you bring more dragon age to this game

[game info]: [community profile] empatheias is set on a floating island above a post-apocalyptic/(mostly) ruined world, with a fantasy/steampunk bent, and characters' emotions have varying magical effects on the environment. The game is a mix of SOL and adventure, between world exploration and emotion shenanigans, and runs at a pretty steady medium pace. It has an easy AC and is overall very backtag friendly, in my experience. As well as being very welcoming and friendly, but that's just like my opinion, man.

One-man cast-wise Anders has been around A While, now, and is p much just doing Anders, living in the slums and healing everybody for nothing. He intermittently complains his way through adventures. He's also from the Default world state, well before endgame, but timeline/world state shenanigans are more than welcome.

Reserves are currently open, applications will be open for the first four days of February, and the current TDM is here!

Er, well, gosh, hello again. I was just looking for info on Empatheias; someone recommended it to me because I was looking for a game that was really heavy on character interaction, which is entirely my jam. Would you mind a Hawke with a super different background to your Anders, though? I'd be bringing her in (if I do) essentially from the point of her death, so far ahead of the plot (though I can make the Anders romance backstory she has optional if that's too weird).

Also how's the pacing of the game, if I may ask? Fast, slow, in-between, loose, what you make of it?

Not at all! She'd be different enough, anyway, since the default state Hawke he's used to is also a man and a mage, so I mean from there it's just details lol. I'm pretty much fine with any timeline shenanigans to be honest, as long as you're cool with the obligatory "that's not how I remember it" CR friction. (Which I think can be interesting but I totally understand it's not everyone's favorite thing.)

And I think the game's a pretty steady medium, pace-wise; there's always something to do, but it's not overwhelming and the mods are good about spacing out bigger events. Event posts, like the monthly character intro log and excursions/festivals/etc, can and do tend to explode pretty quickly, but everyone I've played with has also been really chill about backtagging, and I don't think there's ever any pressure on when you tag into a big log, even for events that ICly only take place over a couple of days.

Add to that that AC is very lenient (10 comments or 1 entry + 7 comments, and multiple tag-outs on event logs count), and it really is pretty much as make-your-own-pace as you need it to be.

I'm good with obligatory "That's not how I remember it" etc; saves than having to constantly ask "What did X say at point Y?" so everything tallies, plus in a game where strong emotions actually have an external effect it might even be a bonus for once.

Good to hear people are cool with backtagging; I do a lot of that, my tagging schedule can be pretty erratic, so it's definitely something I look for.

Thanks for answering my questions, I'll do some more research and have a think. =)
