The RPG Calendar


Announcements

The RPG Calendar is closing down. Thanks for the good times guys.

DarkBeing and Melkor have completed their Fanfic based on the legendary Advent of Darkness RPG: The Advent of Darkness FanFiction

DarkBeing's Legacy: The History of the SWU RPG

FoO presents the Calendar's first offical, and rather silly, awards ceremony. It is now over, but I'll leave this here so you can chack out the winners if you missed it. Go on, have a look'see...

WARNING: Exam Season, RPGs may move slowly.

What is the Calendar? How does it work?

The Calendar is basically a floodgate. It is here to stop tirades of RPG's flooding the forum, then dieing, then there being a period where no RPG's exist.

To this end the calendar exists. When you come up with an RPG idea you submit it, then when enough have said that they're interested you go on the waiting list until there is a slot and then the RPG can begin!

How do I submit my RPG?

To submit an RPG to the community fill in this simple form

RPG Name: (The title of your RPG)
Moderator: (Your forum name)
Plot: (The plot for your RPG, this could be your title crawl)
Character/Faction Based: (Just put down character, faction or either if you haven't decided)
Number of people interested: (I'll fill this in as we go along. This field will be deleted when your RPG has reached 5 people)

Are there any rules?

Yes, these rules are not subject to change, but most are common sense anyway

-Follow the CoC, no spam, flaming, baiting etc.

-Constructive criticism only, don't just say 'I hate your idea', say how to improve it

-Don't just ignore the calendar, it's here for a reason

-Keep it friendly, and say if you're interested

-If you have a problem contact me, my email is friend_of_old@hotmail.co.uk

-To make things easier to run here I have introduced a colour coding system for important posts
Type RPG Idea... in Bold Red if you are submitting an idea
Type Interested in... in Bold Lime if you are interested in an idea
Type Update for... in Bold Orange if you want me to update something on the main post
Type Probation for... in Bold Yellow if you want me to put someone on the probation list (I will ask for reasons)

How many...

Yes there are limits to things:

-There will only be 5 RPG's at a time

-You need 5 people to be interested in your RPG for it to go forward

-You can have up to 3 RPG ideas at a time

-You can moderate 1 RPG at a time

Current RPGs

RPG Waiting List

RPG Name: A New Empire Part 2
Moderator: Gorog
Plot:
Two years have passed since the Battle of Endor. Imperial commanders and Moffs break away from High Command on Coruscant, while the remaining loyalists struggle to keep the forces of the Alliance of Free Planets at bay. However, while having a wide base of support, the former Rebellion lacks the military resources to take Coruscant.

In a surprise move, Alliance and Imperial leaders meet on the planet ITHOR. Drawing up a peace treaty, the delegates decide on a new government, transforming the Empire into a constitutional monarchy with the reinstatement of the IMPERIAL SENATE, led by a President appointed by the figurehead Emperor who has been elected by the Grand Moffs. MON MOTHMA is soon appointed to the post of President of the Imperial Senate.

However, some former Rebels refuse to recognize the Treaty of Ithor, and accuse Mon Mothma of having sold out the ideals of the Rebellion to assume control of the galaxy. These Rebels maintain arms in order to establish a true Republic. Similarly, some Imperial worlds denounce what they call a false Empire, and instead aid the Imperial warlords. As the new Empire and its Senate try to establish authority, the Galactic Civil War enters a new phase, manipulated by shadowy individuals with their own agenda...
Character/Faction Based: Character

RPG Name: Age of the Warlords
Moderator: FoO
Plot:
[c]After the disasterous failure of Palpatine's attempted formation of a unified Galactic Empire the Republic collapsed and the galaxy fell into ten years of darkness. Now three factions, the Thyferran Alliance, the Grand Directorate and the Azure Imperium have arisen and vy for control of the core worlds, using battered fleets with ancient clone wars ships and cheap cruisers, a shadow of the galaxy's former glory.

Over all of this the Church of Truth holds sway, binding the planets of the galaxy under its vicious doctorine. However one team of Directorate scientists on Kuat dare to defy them. In an attempt to create the ultimate weapon they unleash the ultimate sin, they unleash the Force.

Character/Faction Based: Character, with mnior fleet details

RPGs to be Approved

Moderators

I've decided to add this section so that people can see at a glance if their favourite moderators or friends are planning an RPG at a glance, or if they're on the probation list. Thus I'm assigning everyone a colour, if you'd prefer a different colour don't hesitate to ask.

-Friend of Old (FoO)

-Melkor1

-Cheapy the Hutt

-Flying Ace/Vader

-Bando_Gora/Gorog


Probation List

This is where a list of people and their crimes are put. If you are on this list it means something you have done has been deemed counter-productive to an RPG or the RPG community. Being on this list does not stop you creating RPG's through the calendar or playing in them. It is here to warn people of what you have done, so that if they don't want to run the risk of you messing something up half-way through.

Crimes include things like godmodding, flaming, spamming, quitting for no valid reason, etc. Basically anything that harms an RPG.

Darth Kiev: For abandoning ANE without reason, causing death of the RPG.

Its... wierd. It seems to me there are alot of unskilled RPers out there. RPG posts need to be more than

Cray looked out a window. He was bored. I know! I'll go to Kashyyk! He said. So he got in a ship and flew to Kashyyk.

They need a little more... why don't you take a gander at some of the other RPGs in SWU? Read the posts, and take note at the length of their posts, the feelings, the dialoug and everything.

Boba speaks the truth. When you can expand "Cray looked out the window and then went to his ship to get off the planet" into -

Cray stared out the window, absorbed in his own thoughts. The sun outside glinted off of the polished durasteel structures, which rose like metallic teeth of a colossal beast, ready to satiate its thirst for the blood red setting sun. As its rays reached out across the world, they did not reach Cray, who was somewhere else... somewhere only he knew. His distant appearance, however, was misleading, as he was tied to the present by a tether of his own train of thought; he pondered the big, the small, the quick, and the dead, all to no avail. The solution he was searching for was not to be found here, so he ventured toward the hangar. This world was eating away at him, the sun, the stars themselves, with its enormous metallic jaws. It seemed to be laughing as it ate the lives and minds of all those there... all of those too busy to just step back once in a while, and read the Force.

This, actually, is an entire paragraph on ONLY him looking out the window and deciding to go to the hangar. He isn't even out of the room, or hallway, or wherever he was yet. THAT is the sign of a good role player; they can write a novel on a single sentence.

IMO, while I agree that descriptions are good for getting a sense of the character's feelings and his/her surrounding area, I find that too much description can be a distraction.

If the descriptions only serve to buff up a post and make it longer, then you might be better off with a shorter post. Not a one sentence post mind you, but one that accurately sums up the character's feelings and environment, and is relevant to the story at hand. No one really wants to read pages and pages of description that really don't contribute to the story except make it longer.

With that being said, I think the sign of a good role player is not necessarily writing a novel on a single sentence, but writing enough to get the reader to understand the situation and continue reading without skimming over to the next post.

I never said that, I said that the best RPers possess the ability to turn a single sentence into a paragraph or more. Not that they should, just that they could.

*imagines some of the monstrous posts in EB*

Yeah, definitely not that they should.

I sincerely hope not; I know most of us have been sort of strapped for time with RL, myself included. Hopefully, we will be able to pick it up again soon.

Speaking of which, where's FoO?

It's not random, its the acursed tug of that 'Real Life' lark (which BTW does not mean I do not prefer RP'ing, because I do). I just have a sporadic timetable.

But thank you for the compliament Persia.

Anyway, I'm off over to EB to catch up, and see if the post I was working on before Christmas is still valid. Happy RP'ing everyone!

EDIT: UPDATED! If I need to do anything else, let me know.

ATTENTION EVERYONE: IMPORTANT

Guys, some of you have, or perhaps not, seen a thread in the MEC posted by GillB. Its overly long and rambling on and has little to do with us, but there's one point that indeed does.

Quote:

d) If all this continues, we won't hesitate to close down the SWGBH forums and archive the site.

Since closing down GBH is appearantly on the table, and we're already so close to that point that the Exco feel totally cool with just throwing that out there nonchalantly, I think it would be reasonable to take steps regarding exactly where we'll go, if\when this happens. We have such a unique community and plethora of ideas I would hate to see this community die so ignominiously.

I need some opinions. Is there anywhere else we can go HG, should it come to that?

EAWH is the only possible alternative, and it doesn't look pretty

Somewhere off-site perhaps? A "SWU" site, or...

Suggestions? Comments?

I do agree with you here, that point jumped out at me as a little harsh if only a handful of people are causing a problem. EaW would be the first alternative, although compared to SWGB:H, it looks...tacky. I don't know if that's because I "grew-up" at SWGB:H, or if it doesn't look as nice. But, for in an RPGing sense, EaW:H would be a good alternative, for they both stay within the SWU, and, we may get one or two more RPer's to play alongside. They would sureley have to let us know in advance if they were archiving SWGB:H, and, if it ever did come to that, then we could take the matter in hand.

But let's not focus on the negative. SWGB isn't getting archived, yet, so let's continue the way we are, for it is mainly over in the MEC things are turning nasty.

Final note, have fun with your games!
