Howdy there stranger! Welcome to the section of Roleplayers and Storytellers! This here is the Campfire Saloon, where the RPers hang out between stories. It's also any newcomer's first stop to the section after they read the rules. This is where you can try out your skills, as well as to see if RPing is the thing for you! Here're the rules of the saloon: 1. The moderator(s) of the section are the bartender(s) and owner(s) of the saloon. Their word is law here. They kick anyone out, they're out for however long they say, and anything else they say goes as well. 2. Any RPer who's a vet can be a "regular" at the saloon if they so desire. Their job is to be role models and assist the mod(s) with giving advice. 3. Any new people are first time visitors to the saloon. Your challenge is to play that part. 4. Both the bartenders and the regulars may make comments on any aspect of the newcomer's RP style. However, comments MUST be constructive. NO FLAMING ALLOWED. This is the new RPer thread...people are going to make mistakes. Be nice about it. 5. The standard RP rules are going to be a little more relaxed here than elsewhere. However, anything that's clearly spam or off topic will be handled normally, and any clear suggestive themes will be treated normally as well. Repeated poor posts after comments have been given multiple times are fair game too. No god-moddng or metagaming...we're normal people in a saloon. That's it. 6. Have fun! This is to get used to the section and to experiment. Don't be shy if you want to give it a shot...we're pretty nice people. Character Sheet: Name: What're ya called? (for simplicity, I recommend your forum name.) Age: How many years ya been kickin'? (Make this up at will if you don't want your actual age.) Gender: Be ya a boy or a girl? (Again, for simplicity be truthful. It's easier to play a character similar to yourself) Role: (Bartender=mod. Regular=RP vet. Newcomer=New RPer.) Bio: Tell us a bit about yerself! (This can be either fictional, your The West history, or your RP history. Mix and match at will!) ------------------------- Name: Regal Age: 18 Gender: Male Role: Bartender Bio: Regal joined the forum for one reason: to RP! He'd never done it before this forum, but the concept intrigued him and he wanted to try! He was a noob at first, making RP mistakes left and right. However, over the course of a year he grew in his abilities, making many friends in the section and earning their respect. When the previous bartender, Jordan, retired, Regal was asked both by the big bosses and the RPers to fill his place. He agreed, and has been the bartender ever since. Under his control, the section grew from the near-dead place it had been to a place with regular activity, adding new rules at times to make the experience more enjoyable for all. Nowadays he RPs in the ones that catch his attention, coming up with the occasional story himself. He finds time to tend to the saloon every day unless it's absolutely impossible. ---------------------------------- Regal slowly polished a glass, looking around the Campfire Saloon. The regulars were there, and he vaguely wondered if they'd see anyone new soon. Business was good, considering the number of people who lived in the area, but newcomers were always interesting, bringing their own sides to arguments long thought died out. With any luck, they'd get one soon.
