Starting your own RP for fun and fun

Be a knight in shining armor, a troll under a bridge, a helium-seller in a steampunk world...whoever you want to be.

Starting your own RP for fun and fun

Postby Lordxana0 on Thu Nov 15, 2012 1:10 am

On Friday of this week at 1:00 (Whatever time zone California is in) I will be holding a short seminar on how one can run a successful RP. If you want to learn how to be a better GM or player I will be doing some small lectures followed by some Q&A.

So it will be tomorrow... Can you post here one hour before or soemthing? I have no idea how to do the math and discover when it is in my time.

Vic, California is PST, meaning right now, with Daylight Savings and all, it is 6h earlier than Brazil. If it'll start at 13:00 PST, It'll be 19:00 for us.

I hope it doesn't last too long. I'll be having dinner by 20:00.
Thanks for calculating it. I was lazy to research California's timezone by myself and busy too.

I had to do it for myself anyway. No reason not to post the results.

California is three hours behind New York, so it would be at 4 PM for me....Works!

Yeah I figured that time would be best for me because I would be out of school on a Friday and anyone else from around the world would probably be on at a good time to view it. By the by the subjects for the discussion part of the time will be: Starting your own RP, Managing players, and Story based RP's vs. Fighting based RP's. Oh and by the by I have been running RP's for about 7-8 years so I do have some experience about what I am talking about.

Err... maybe. While I'm a fairly veteran RPer, I suppose, I don't exactly have any professional tips.

EDIT: Oh, also, on Friday, I need to go to a Japanese tutoring session, so if that is scheduled at the same time as your little seminar, I'm afraid I won't be showing up.

My second lecture takes place this Friday at 2:00. We will be running over how to make a good villain and how to get out of the trap of the "hero" player.

I'm not sure if I'll be home for this one. Real life's messed up right now. It's 20:00 for me and Vic. So... Hopefully I'll be here.

Same place?
The voices in my head tell me that we saved the world. However, they also told me that George Clooney's face is on the dollar bill, so... meh. The voices are more fun, anyway.

That was awesome. And once again, I have a transcript saved for anyone who missed it. So just ask me... Or... I don't know, Is 4Shared downloadable for everyone? Or does it require registration to download nowdays? I could just send it to my really old and unused virtual drive there and link it here. :?

I missed it. :( I was online, too! I was just sitting there at 5, wondering what was going on then that I was so excited about and I forgot completely! :cry:

It's ok. Don't feel sad...

Here... I sent it to 4shared... Tell me if it does not work and I'll try another host. ;)

Plotting and planning? I mean, the adventure itself. How to properly plan a story and put it into action, dealing with the unexpected action of players and whatnot.
