Hello RPG!

So as you may know, National Novel Writing Month is coming up very soon. I thought "hey, I'd love to take part in this, but there's no way I have time to do it on my own..."

I had a novel idea (pun totally intended).

Lets see if we can reach 50,000 words collectively, in all different RPGs, in the month of November :D

Here's the rules/guidelines:
- The show begins at Midnight GMT on the 1st of November and ends at 23:59 GMT on the 30th of November (cos my timezone rules all). Any posts submitted before or after this time will not be counted.
- You must post a link to your post in this topic, along with a word count. This will be added to the total at the end of each week.
- Only RPG posts will be counted. No posts from lounge topics, sign ups or OOC chatter can count towards word count.
- If you are unable to get a word count, I will check it for you. But it is preferred if everyone can do it themselves.
- Don't feel that you have to write massive uber posts all the time! Every word counts!
- You don't have to participate, I guess... But it'll be fun :D

Alright, so, we've got... 5 more days (my time) until we can start! Come on guys, lets hit 50,000 words! :yes:

There may even be some little rewards at the end for whoever writes the most words. But don't get all competitive! It's for fun.


RPG NaNoWriMo 2011 begins in:
RIGHT NOW. GO GO GO!

Total:
31,419/50,000

Week One Total: 9,763
Week Two Total: 4,978
Week Three Total: 7,825
Week Four (and a day) Total: 8,853

TIME LEFT: FINISHED

So... Get plotting 8D

OMg.......this is a great idea Bex!!!! HOLY SHIT!!! Why didn't we ever think of this eariler XD I'm all for this, I'm still going to do the regular NaNo but definitely on board with this idea. Lets go RPG!!!

And as a shameless plug a great way to help out even if you don't have time is to join the RPG Quickfire. Get out a quick post, and all these little posts will add up at the end ;D lol

Edit: BONUS POINTS!
I looked up Ben's last post in DBSU which was October 10, 2011 at 6:30 PM (GMT -5). Unless my math is totally off then for him it really WAS a Tuesday! XD

ChobiChibi
26th October 2011, 11:22 AM
Step One: Look for threads with the words "Sign ups" in the title. Read through the plots in the first post and decide on one you'd quite like to join.
Step Two: Use the character sheet in the first post to create a character for the RPG. Post it in the sign up topic.
Step Three: Wait to be approved by Game Master (person who started the thing)
Step Four: Go to RPG Thread (normally having the word STARTS in the title) and post in character in there. Or if it's not started yet, you wait :)

Oh it's easy to get started here:

1. Cut a hole in a box.
2. Put your junk in that box.
3. Make her open the box.

Oh wait, those were the instructions for what Ben's gift to Asi should be.

ANYWAY! We're not that crazy, or possessive, we just enjoy having new playthings to torment in a fictional setting created and inflated by our dark twisted minds. That being said, it really is a wonder why you haven't joined us sooner, Gavin.

Gavin Luper
27th October 2011, 10:47 AM
XD

Thanks for the instructions-in-a-box, Sam. ^_^ Yeah, I'm surprised I never came here back in the day.

And Becki, thanks for the nice, clear low-down. I've always wondered how it all works. It sounds quite fun and creative - although I know I'll never have time to be active in it (trying to write my own fanfic-that-will-seemingly-never-end is a rare opportunity as it is). But if I end up procrastinating on my thesis after LTL is done, I might just pop in for a visit! :) How long to you have to commit to an RPG for?

Asilynne
27th October 2011, 10:51 AM
Basically you post when you can. RPG isn't as fast paced as it once was, which doesn't have to be a bad thing. Nowadays we are all mostly adults with jobs and lives so we don't have time for something that will get so many posts in a day you can't read enough to catch up and you get left behind XD

A good one for you might be the RPG Quickfire, its a fun, quick rpg to do when you want and leave off to return to later when you have to. Its also good in case you have writers block because you can make short posts that don't have to be srs bsns, and you are given a prompt by the person before you~! Definitaly give it a look, the genre and tone can change in the space of a single post so you can direct the flow of the story :)

According to Wurzface, you need 1,600 words a day to complete the 50,000.

So technically, if 3 of us post 500ish words a day, we will make it :D

At first, my mind was innocent... (Well, some junkie stuff [that reminds him of his childhood] could be fine.)

Beck: "Is it your dick in a box?"

Then my mind was being seduced... (She's not talking about a rooster... is she?)


That will be my gift to her, only minus the box.

...until it finally succumbed. (Oh God, that's in her honeymoon... IN HER HONEYMOON!!!)

You have 1 hour and 25 minutes until go time. Do me proud guys :)

Expect my first contribution tomorrow, we've already got 600+ words waiting :D

GO TEAM!

EDIT: I also decided that any new RPG plot can be counted towards this too. Only bits that are descriptive/narrative will count, and these posts will always be verified for word count. Also, the plot will only count once, so you cannot claim for it again when the RPG starts.

Itís great to see people participating, but apparently there was a little confusion. Becki and I discussed it, and weíre asking that you only link to your own posts. Please do not link to other peoplesí post. If they donít wish to participate or are too busy to post, then that is their decision.

Also, please also do not link to their posts and say "they asked me too", there is no exception to this rule.

So, we've got 8 days left, and we're not quite at the half way mark... But that's okay! Like I said last time, there are still unreported posts... I think we'd maybe have an extra... 5000 words, maybe, ish, if they were included. We could be at 27,000! It's time for that final push guys, so lets see how well we can do :D
