    If anyone is interested in doing role play with their DD fan characters, I’ve been told the Lounge here is probably the best place for it.

    Now of course with any role play, there should be rules.

    1. Absolutely NO bullying or harassment of any kind!
    2. It’d probably be best if role plays could be kept at least PG-13. While the game does include a brothel for stress relief, perhaps we shouldn’t go into too much detail of what goes on behind the closed doors within…
    3. DO NOT steal the characters of others!

    Those are really all the rules I can come up with at the moment. I also think that people should be free to make role play threads that are either open to everyone, or private with a few people.

    Have fun!

    I’m somewhat interested in this. Might be worth it to work my writing muscles, flimsy as they are.

    Since you put it into a neat list, I’ll give my questions and thoughts on the rules.

    1. What about roleplayed bullying? In game, my characters are constantly getting the abusive debuff when they get stressed out, making snarky comments to each other. I probably won’t be playing an abusive/snarky character if I do a roleplay here, but it’s worth clarifying.
    2. PG-13 should be easy so long as we don’t get detailed about what goes on at the brothel. If a character is so inclined to go to one, just fade to black before things get explicit. That’s the standard practice with PG-13 roleplay, when player characters get into ‘entanglements’.
    3. The golden rule. It’s worth explaining that this includes forcing another character to suffer an affliction, injury, scarring or defeat. You’re only responsible for the fate of your own character, not others. That being said, characters are much more interesting when you let things happen to them, and then describe how they react. It should be especially true of this game, as the setting demands that characters have a high attrition rate, and it strains credulity when a character that ought to be squishy refuses to die yet fights on even in the midst of difficult odds. It happens in game occasionally, but even so…

    Anyway, just stating my interest. I might start something or wait for someone else to start something. Probably the latter.

    1. I mean more of actual bullying done by the person behind the computer screen. If it’s just a character that happened to become abusive, then it’s fine.

    2. Exactly. 🙂

    3. Yes, the only characters to be responsible for are yours and yours alone!

    Glad to see another person interested in the idea! 🙂

    I’m certainly interested! I’ve only been a lurker on the forums, but when I saw roleplay I wanted to jump in on it. I suppose I’ll get started!

    The bump in the road woke Jacobs. He jerked awake, going for the flintlock under his coat. Idiot! He was jumping at shadows, and he wasn’t even there yet. One day he’d jump and blast a lump of lead right into his stomach.

    The driver shouted something.

    Jacobs tucked the gun away and peered out the window, into the darkness of the broken woods. Winds whispered through the limbs, moaning out the promise of treasure. The promise of food. The promise of something screaming in the dark. Push it out!

    The shouting was louder.

    “What in damnation do you want?” Jacobs peered his head out the passenger window.

    “Funny ain’t it?” The old man sounded mad.

    “I don’t see anything but the blasted forest and this god-forsaken road.” His voice carried away on the speeding wind.

    “You’ll start laughing soon enough. We’re almost at the best joke in the world!” He cackled on through the dark.

    Jacobs slid back into the seat, slightly disturbed by the driver, whom was clearly touched. The sooner he reached the town, the better. He hoped the next person was slightly more sane. Possibly a good round of dice. This time he wouldn’t put himself in debt.

    The carriage pushed on.

    ***

    Jacobs stumbled into town, the driver almost crushing him under the carriage as it heaved itself away. A train chugging away into the forest, whistling calls to other damned men. He looked past the downtrodden travelers and made for the bar.

    O-oh…Well I think it’d be best if you started a new topic here in the Lounge and put what you said there. I made this topic just to discuss the idea.

    Any Out of Character thread or place to put character info, or do I just jump in when I’m comfortable? : )

    You can jump in when you feel like it. And if you have any info like a stat sheet, it’d be good to add that as well.

    Hi, I’m not sure of the state of the forums. I can’t believe I’m just registering and everything. If someone sees this, I’d love to join in on the RP. Thanks. <3
