July 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.

El Nysa - A few queries

[personal profile] sock_tastic 2017-07-31 10:47 pm (UTC)(link)
This game is on my radar but I am still undecided on whether or not to app. I know it's recently opened so a flurry of activity is expected. I just want to ask a few things:

- Is it more plot or slice of life? I like a balance if possible.
- What's the reception like to lone canon warriors?
- First impressions from the playerbase itself?

Thank you for your time!

extends leg.....i'll throw in my opinions

1. It's hard to tell right now! After the big 3-part intro we've got 2 weeks now until missions come out, which will open up more non-SOL opportunities and (presumably) more NPC interactions - I know I personally asked the mods about doing something non-SOL and was told that NPCs related to that thing will be available later on (one of which, Lysa, has already been a figure in an event but not interacting with anyone). I think both IC and OOC people are getting settled and waiting for missions to open up on the 13th, and at least one player-managed IC group is already trying to get off the ground for more plotty type stuff (the IC Inquisition, which uh I'm not involved with so I won't speak on it).

2. Pretty good? Merlin here is one and I've had no problems getting tags on toplevels or getting tags back. Honestly the game is so populated rn that if you pointed out a character I probably wouldn't be able to tell you immediately if they had castmates or not. My other character is not a lcw but is from a lesser-known canon and I've had pretty much the same experience, SO... in short: if you tag out and/or write interesting toplevels, you're golden.

3. In myyyy experience, everyone has been friendly and receptive to plotting/tagging! I got a lot of mileage out of the CR meme and past that I'd say most of the plotting happens on plurk.

1) Agreed that it's hard to tell right now. I believe when things settle it'll be a balance, with the possibility to of leaning it whichever way you choose.
2) From what I can tell there's A LOT of lone cannon warriors, and they've all been getting a good amount of interaction? I myself am lone and have been widely received and getting more CR than I would've expected, which is refreshing.
3) Everyone's been welcoming and willing to help out where they can. There's a lot of differently paced players and it looks like folks have been open to that.

idk hopefully that helps some

hello another voice chiming in.

1. I would say from my own impressions, it's going to be a bit of both. Our first event was a mixture of outdoor survival, as everyone got launched out of the space station out of nowhere, and then later being in a comfortable town setting. The first "event" will introduce the mission system, so I imagine that will open up opportunities to plot outside of just standard mod events. It's looking to be a bit of open world, in a similar vein as Eachdraidh if you were around when that game was open.

2. As another lone canon person, I say I feel very welcomed and haven't had issue getting tags. Even with those who have canonmates, it's mostly two or three people. There are only a handful of big canons - Dragon Age, Game of Thrones, Marvel, Gundam IBO - but for the most part people are either lone warriors or casts are two or three people big.

3. Very friendly. Our Discord chat is fairly active throughout the day, as we have people from all sorts of timezones, and so long as you put yourself out there you won't have issue getting tags or people to thread with. Plotting happens on plurk like most games, but our first intro log also had an OOC organizing post that a lot of people participated and plotted on! Personally it's been a great experience so far and despite the large playerbase I don't feel particularly lost.
