[Closed] How's the final RP style going to be?

Post by Destination on Sun Feb 16, 2014 5:18 am

Okay, so the first character has been completed and reapproved (Regimental Samurai), jolting me from some RL matters back to here.

We have two ways of working with our characters. First is the old way, where every character is free to be seen in their respective forum, including the Approved Characters. The other way is to have all Approved Characters hidden initially, until they battle and reveal themselves and their abilities.

There's advantages and disadvantages here. Since the fights will now involve the GM a lot more, the GM can help to orchestrate surprises and 'tricks up my sleeves' to greater effect if the Approved Characters are hidden. This would refer to stuff like Finn Claymore not realising that Apple Panzer had greater defense than he thought, as seen here. On the other hand, editing Approved Characters would become quite tricky.

Sticking to the old system, on the other hand, means that any surprises are limited to whatever rolls the GM makes and determines the outcome of certain actions.

Post here and indicate which way you prefer to see. I will abstain from the vote to remain impartial.

Edit: No need. I've discussed with Bunting and we'll just hide the stats and movelist.

I have a suggestion. We show backstories, and abilities are hidden so while people can tell people aren't just making their way in because say he's my little cousin or a girl whose skirt I am trying to get under, there's still the element of not being completely sure of what to do besides basic affinity that can be deduced I.E. don't get close to a sword, if you see a cannon light up run the fuck away from there, etc.
