Nah, I mean it wouldn't work at all, because the people themselves wouldn't want to do it.
There's a reason Role Playing games are so popular. They allow people to be something their not...to live their lives in ways they can't in reality. A way to be who they SEE themselves as.
If you offer the idea OF a role playing game, but then strip the ability to role PLAY. Most players wouldn't come near it. As you have removed the most attractive element. The ability to choose who, and what we play as.
And that also opens the issue of, what happens if you were to assign someone that physically, or mentally, Cannot play the part of the character's description?
Alright, I'll be around, PM me or message on here if yo0u need me for any reason.
Also no rush i am actually headed to bed as ive gotta be up somewhat early for work as ive gotta put some extra work into getting ready for it today.
PS ive got it advertised we need two more people to cover all the sins, but im not worried about finding them as I can kill off two of the sins if need be...or We can ha e if someine joins up later be introduced late or something. But i will be working on a pkst come tomorrow after work and a few other threads.
Ive fallen WAYYYY behind on my personal rp The corrupted sentinal and I need to get that back on track.
Also i will not be on at all the 20th as ill be spending the day with a very important person to me.
I mean the person with the sheets would basically be god and any details would have to be written down and kept somewhere...itd be a very hard rp to handle for sure. And the creator would have to find some very willing people to do it.
Bluntly it wouldnt work, the rp would fall to pieces very quickly with that. Hang on, work was a shitstorm, ill be home in about 3 hours.
I mean I could have been Completely and utterly God like and been evil... Recruited a bunch of people and made random character skeletons and told them to pick a number from 1 to 10 and based off that number assign them a character...From there they discover things about themselves based totally what I tell them...But I don't know of many that would go for that...Not unless they are either completely insane or go swing with the idea.
Ive played a dm for 5 years. Its an issue im very much aware of.
So you see the issue now. Of having someone write on a general topic not knowing some much needed info?
Aye. Plus its a world of Your creation, not a topic other people would have prior knowledge of
I mean i could but the topic of dragon rider is a very broad thing.
The ever war between, "How do I set a writing requirement to weed out undesirables without turning away potentials"
I'm aware of the struggle, which is why I usually have players fill out a good 2 paragraph description of "something" related to the roleplay at hand.
Anywho, off to work for real now, see yah in 8 hours
Had i done the basic skeleton i had originally though up itd have been much easier to fill out, but harder to tell if a person would have been useful.
The skeleton would have been
Puppetmaster, Real life photo, real life name, real life age, Avatar photo, Avatar name, Avatar race, Avatar age, Dragon photos Dragon type.
That's what I figured, but wanted to ask you directly :)
Ok, off to work!
Think of it more of lime this. The skeleton is a baseline for your character yes, but the character skeleton is done up during your dragon rider time...so while the rp wont start out on the day of dragon riding starting it gives you an idea of what your "group" will consist of power wise. This helps me assert if a person will be good for the rp over minor details like that. For instance as mrs bellyache asked about was Void magic. While possible to obtain one would have to have a very unnatural long life even in the eyes of the elves to get close tp scratching at void magic.
To answer the question forming in your heas it would be the lateral. I had you fill out info before dragon riders so you know what it is your building up to.
Eh, the first one you used works fine.
Also its not an explicit backstory per say, but more little things like our custom weapons, or our ranks in society, or what they did before being dragon riders. Things like that.
Knowing our characters start at level 1, it almost implies they have a past history BEFORE we "take over" their bodies as players, rather then create them at start.
The other option would be if you had us create the stuff we planned to use in advance, and the characters would catch up eventually to where we are in the skeletons.
I remember, and considering they've been here almost as long as any other race, I'd assume they'd pick the largest mountain range to work with. Plus the fact that I did call it the "northern dwarven kingdom", would make sense for it to be the first one.
The cities location works with the first edit you made.
