First answer: Yeah, I've read all the necessaries, I think. I've just never really done the web forum RPing thing, and I'm giving myself a bit of time before doing anything foolish.

Second answer: I've always had a soft spot in my heart for bards. Softer than the brown spots on a rotten apple.

Third answer: Here's the problem. I've seen most every movie you listed as dork canon...I just have a terrible, drug-addled memory. For instance, I saw Jaws two months ago at a huge outdoor screening at Hollywood Forever Cemetary...don't remember a thing about it. Monty Python is the only exception on that list. I luv them.

Play by post (pbp) roleplaying is very much just like writing a story, only when something goes wrong you can blame the other players. All you have to do is keep it simple and describe what your character is doing, once you become comfortable with that you'll find yourself branching out into more exotic things. 99% of my posts are just mundane things I pump out to keep the games going. It's the 1% that I do it all for.

Okay I went slightly off topic there, if it helps you can't start off worse then I did.

More exotic things, eh?

I've actually done a lot of RPing online (just not in PBP format), so the description thing is fine. It's actually the combat/dice-rolling/bonuswillpowertriprollcheck that I'm concerned about, as I'm not very bright when it comes to stuff like that.

But if Itches can figure it out I should be fine after a few goes.

In my experience the mechenics are typically either handled by the GM or ignored.

This is free-form. Roll if you want. Ignore mechanics if you want.

So long as the actions described are within the realm of reasonable possiblities for your character, no one will object.

Now if your character magically crits with every single attack roll, then we'll start getting annoyed.

I may be more ready to jump in than I realize. Maybe I'll take the day to get some of my character ideas down.

Are you guys even accepting applications currently, or should I wait until the end of this chapter?

And could one of you be so kind as to help me form these ideas into a coherent shape? I don't want to seem retarded when I post them. It's a pride thing. :/

Pride is a misplaced concept here. If you want send me a PM and I'll see if I can help. Also we should have room for someone else, and there's no reason you can't put together your character now and then wait for an opportunity to get him/her/it into the game.

Yeah, we probably have room for one more. As far as an application we're really looking for character concept and your writing style, not the numbers.

I'm starting to suspect that Dirigible won't be joining.

Meh. You guys are happy doing your thing; your thing is not my thing, however.

Well, I've been kicking around a character idea. It occurs to me lately that the best kind of game to get involved in is a proven long-lived game. Like this one.

I've got some more reading to do. Gral has suggested Chapter 5, and I'm well into it. Then I'll probably read the last chapter, and then the current one. I hear you're on your way to the big city. My character happens to be living in a city very similar to the one you're heading for. Imagine that!

No, I won't be playing the original character I used way back at the beginning of this game. I don't want to say anything for sure until I finish my reading. But I'm leaning toward a Psion.

But we want your thing!

Just for the record, I'm glad to see that you are interested .

What's the difference between this thing here and Dirigible's thing? I'm sure I'll regret asking, but what the heck!

I'm sure we'll all regret you asking.

Dispite what lies gral told you, you really don't have to read the entire previous plot arch. Just reads the last chapter to get a feel for the game and other characters.

Chapter 5 isn't a very long one, so I don't think I'll have any trouble reading through it. Besides, I'm kinda hooked. It's been a good read so far.

Don't worry. It will get worse once you come across where I start playing again.

My thing has these crazy-ass hippy liberal pinko ideas like 'game master' and 'plot' and 'any deviation from plot will be crushed like a Faberge omlette'.
