Welcome Everyone, to the new RPG discussions subcategory!
You're now inside the future home of all discussion relating to the RPG's going on in the RPG subcategory. Here you can find Sign-Up topics, discussions and even game Pitches!
The purpose of this category is to keep the original Role Playing Games category free of non-game discussion and make sure that the focus stays on the games. To that end, these are the rules for this particular subcategory.
SEPARATE DISCUSSION AND PROFILE TOPICS WILL BE ALLOWED
This is to allow, if you so choose, for players to easily explore the profiles of those playing in the same game as them. I am in no way going to enforce this, but be aware that ONLY ONE OF EACH TOPIC WILL BE ALLOWED PER RPG
ALL TOPICS MUST BE TAGGED WITH THE NAME OF THE RPG THEY CORRESPOND TO
This is fairly simple - it lets people easily find the topics that pertain to the game they are playing.
THERE IS ADDITIONAL LENIENCY TOWARDS DOUBLE POSTING HERE
I realize that the situation involving removal of OOC PMs comes with a certain amount of growing pains. As such, we will be slightly more lenient towards double posting in this category. Just don't abuse it and be smart - if no one's responded all day, we won't care. If you're quadruple posting every hour for hours we're gonna crack down a little.
Outside of these two "rules" anything goes. TTV Board general rules apply, and we will NOT be more lenient about language in this subcategory. As this category is for Out-Of-Character interactions only, the full force of the TTVBoard ruleset applies here.
All other TTVBoard Forum Rules apply.
I would also recommend to those hosting RPGs that they post a brief summary of their game (This can also be the same one that was used in the first post of your RPG itself if you so choose) just to give players a sense of what they're playing. In addition, I recommend linking to the corresponding topic of your RPG in the first post as well.
I will also be allowing timed pins for discussion topics in the event that a major event is about to occur in your game. These pins will only last 24 hours and will be restricted to this category only, not the games one. Please PM me if you wish to take advantage of this, but note that if the privillege is abused it can and will be revoked.
EDIT JUNT 27, 2019:
Addendum has been created allowing for the slight loosening of rules pertaining to double posting in this topic.
HOWEVER, Because of recent events that have transpired, I encourage everyone to reread the board rules thoroughly. RPGS enjoy relaxed language moderation, relaxed double posting rules, and a specific subset of rules that do not apply outside of the category - specifically those pertaining to GM's.
What the RPGs Section does not get an excemption from is the rules pertaining to behavior on the boards.
