Looking at all the different threads got me thinking about all those people who are not posting or not a part of an RP thread at the present time.

I was wondering about perhaps creating a sort of meeting place, where characters (IC)and typists (OOC) could relax and socialize.

My initial thought was that it would be a place where characters could be created and developed. A place that they could move on to other RP threads and come back.

It would also give opportunity to those who are new to spread their wings and be a part of something everyday.

I guess I'm thinking of a kind of homestead or homebase for all.

This would be an ongoing thread. It wouldn't be an adventure thread so much as a developmental and social thread.

Maybe this has been tried in the past, I'm not sure.
Either way, I'd love to hear some feedback.

Thanks!

Sway~

I was actually thinking of something along those lines. A sort of character "Limbo" that will also help develop new characters, like a sandbox and testing grounds, or to just do a little something with existing characters.

I like the idea.

we had a bit like this going for a bit in the Training Grounds. If you would care to try again, please set such in that forum.

I saw the archived thread, thank you for letting me know it would be a resurrected idea.

I never knew about the old thread, probably before my time, but I'd definitely be interested in something like this.

Yes, it's a great idea to create another thread like that. Anything to breathe a bit more life into the RP forums is definately worth a shot. Sway, have you thought any more about how the thread would be set?

Just to confirm, can anyone remember if the old thread in question was Caelin's 'Travelers Rest Inn'...?

Thanks for the encouragement; I've never hosted a RP thread before, so this would be a first.

I have thought about it alot Flark and I have lots of ideas, none of them specifically pinned down at the moment.

I'm waiting to hear more from "would be" joining parties.

I could let a few things be known though.
One of my ideas includes using a map to help everyone situate themselves.
I also think basing the thread around a Manor house turned into an Inn is my favorite plan to date.

There's more don't worry. Heh.

Ahh, well it all sounds good to me so far. Let's wait and see if we can generate a little more interest then... :)

It defnitely won't be a close minded RP thread, all players will be welcome.

It would be nice to see some of the newly joining people pop in. :)

*raises her hand*

I'm certainly interested. I'm new to forum-based RP, being used to real-time RP, and I would love to have a safe place to try it out before I inflict myself *wink* on experienced folks.

Hey Sway, it seems like everywhere I look I see you, lol...

Anyways, I'm definately interested here, I think it would be a lot of fun and just a kinda of almost 'hang out' for all of the role-players in general. When I first read this the idea of a old Tavern instantly shot into my head, it's kind of like a meeting place in itself, and of course there could be an inn and a lot of other things in/around it. Hell, you might even be able to make just a small Adventurer's Outpost, that might be an idea...

I was just thinking about the possibilities of a Drow and Sniper whose used to hunting Aliens sitting down to a warm ale and talking it out. Strange, but definately interesting...

Acutally, there is a place somewhat for your idea, but you gave me some more ideas to enhance the original idea. I'll plug it in and give you guys a place to converge in one place from various other settings. Kinda mix and mingle.

I'm glad to know you're interested. I mean for the thread to be a safe place to introduce players and characters alike.

I believe there's alot to be learned from both experienced and inexperienced participants in any thread. I'm hoping there will be many different levels of RP skill demonstrated, so that there is a good mix for all.

Most of all it should be a place that we can all have fun.

Hi Tamachi, :)

Isn't that a good thing? I'm everywhere, hmm...did you look in the closet lately?
Just kidding! lol

Again, glad to see the interest :). The possibilites are endless.

I'm glad my idea has sparked so much attention.

Seeing as you are changing things around I guess i'll put things on the back burner for the time being.

Thanks for the heads up.

It's something I've actually been planning for while but never finished, even before Caelin put up his inn's thread. I've been working on the layout on the first floor but haven't finished the top floors but I think I'll just let people use their imagination for those floors since they'll all be rooms anyways in a sense.

Anyway I'll get that one up soon with some modifications.

I haven't seen anything like this pop up in either General Roleplaying or in the Training Grounds. If a thread's been started, could you point me in the right direction?

If not, any idea on whether the idea of an everyday RP is still likely to happen?

Chung is working towards creating a detailed setting for this kind of idea, although he's currently busy making all kinds of improvements throughout the whole of the RPGC, so I couldn't tell you how long this might take. :)
