NOTES



Godmodding. I have seen ALOT of it after I started this group. I see that I'm at fault but so are the rpers. You guys can not over power yourselves no matter who you are. Everyone gets hurt in battle. I've been getting quite a few reports for godmodding. When you post, you need to take hits like you would in real life. THINK BEFORE YOU POST.

Questions???

Since I'm new to RP I have to ask a few. The nature scenes like Sunrise, Beach: do I have to stay within the parameters of themes similar to Lord of the Rings, Mad Max post-apocalytic in the style of Robin Hood? Or can I let my imagination run wild using the sunrise as a prop? Ditto for obligatory beach scene?

Can I elaborate some scenario as late as the 20th Century?

I'm not trying or going to ruin anyone's fun. I've looked over other members' avatars, characters to get both some ideas and help formulating what (ever) I want to be in this group.

Do I have to be an action character or can I develop something off the wall...like a US mailbox that possesses mythical powers inside past the opening lid?

1. By themes do you mean topics?

2. This takes place in the way future, past the 21th century even.

3. If you have any suggestions for the group, please tell me.

4. Not everyone's characters are exactly Action characters. And if you randomly develop something off the wall, then it has to match the plot to the RP.

I'd like to take a footnote on how godmodding can be avoided in normal scenarios, mainly when players are in a fight. While melee/close combat is taken more loosely and more flexible, ranged combat should kept down to the golden rule of firefights: Take cover or die. You can strafe and run to avoid fields of fire BEFORE they catch up to you but when your caught head on with a series of bullets headed straight for you there's no possible way you can dodge or take all of them and emerge unhurt, don't go all Matrix style and dance your way through them. Find the nearest piece of viable cover to you and plant it.

It's because it's cannon fodder, I was just trying to move stuff along so that people aren't waiting forever I didn't expect to get flamed in the process -_-
