As was pointed out in the IRC last night; games designed to be short (like Bears' idea), games designed to have low numbers of players, and games that have both of those should be no problem to run alongside other games. Multiple games at once could be a possibility.

But as Krypto pointed out, which I agree with, vote for games you actually want to and can play.

And just because a game doesn't get picked this time doesn't mean it can't be run later on. Afterall, TT isn't going anywhere any time soon.

Yeah it's really going to be less of a vote thread and more of a sign up thread.

Just sign up for all the games you want to play during the next "cycle". If you only want to play one, just sign up for one. If that one doesn't end up getting enough or if the writer decides not to run it, you can always sign up for another one later.

Poll coming on Friday! But I will remember that.

This would also be a good time to ask questions about the games or provide more details about your game.

I'd definitely be up for Krypto's and Bears'. I'd sign up for Brenna's but I'm really not good/fond of writing space related stuff.

Untitled Zombie Game's working title will be "Zed."

Player cap: 4
Players will submit via PM a simple backstory including the following items:
Name
Age
Gender
Occupation
Hobby

Based on these profiles, players will be awarded a special skill, usable once per round.
The typical rules still apply, Paralloida style. (Did I spell that right?)
Objectives will be assigned to each player. These will be awarded points in two dimensions: group benefit and player benefit. A greater area (multiplying the two dimensions together) means a greater chance of succeeding in PVP combat.

For PVP, (that means ZVZ and PVZ and ZVP too) both or all combatants will write the entire fight scene, including injuries. Once both or all have been submitted via PM, the most pragmatic and reasonable plan (via the points) will occur. THIS WILL BE MODIFIED, however, by the opposing plans, which could change the outcome.

Because this game will have opposing teams, secret posts may be PM'd to the GM and will be posted on time-delay, with a warning sent to the opposing team that a time-delay post is active.

The limited number of players means that the game would be turn-based in terms of regular posting, however any player's turn can be skipped after 3 days of inactivity.

All players will start human and in the same location. Further details will be revealed upon registration.

Bears, does your RP have a player limit?

No more than 10. Preferably more like 6-8, but whatever.

We are going to have to deal with the player cap issue. My suggestion is that we have a sign up period, then the Storyteller randomly selects from those who signed up.

FWIW, I don't really have a player cap, though more than 20 would probably get unwieldy.

To be fair, there usually isn't that many people trying to sign up. I think DB had the most so far.

I could make it more, but for my first RP here I think it would be good to keep it small-- the biggest forum RP I've ever led before was 3 players, and it was more of a creative writing exercise than an actual game.

But yeah, a sign up and then random selection process would be fine, or a first-come first-serve thing would work too. Whatever seems best; if there is a lot of interest, then a random selection would be more fair.

E and I are totally doing Krypto's game.

We're gonna be a husband and wife team of cops who have a falling out after the wife kills a suspected child molester.

The husband feels that the law should have proven him either innocent or guilty while the wife believes that since she's a cop, she IS the law.

Oh, yeah, for what it's worth I'd really like to do The Last Stop. Krypto, your games are pretty amazing and whatever you do I wanna try and be a part of. That's all >_>

I think I might try The Last Stop, if I can keep on top of posting this time.

As for Bears game, it reminds me too much of TWEWY to think of seriously.
