    I think we have to wait for a section in the RPG forums to be created for us to get going. And that requires a mod getting the request to make it and deciding there's enough support for the RPG to make it worth the space. That's how I understand it, at least.

    And about the combat, I didn't even think about deciding the outcome before hand. That'll work. :)

    Not wishing to be argumentative, but have you actually looked at some of the rpgs? It seems anyone with opposable thumbs can start one...:p

    I think Anir's objective with the four paragraphs rule is to stop people filling their entire post with nothing but dialogue, which is easy to write but dull to read. That's doesn't mean there have to be paragraphs between each piece of dialogue, merely that descriptive prose should take priority. That's my interpretation, anyway. I'm sure Anir will put me straight if I've misrepresented her.:)

    1. This isn't where you post profiles.
    2. No one's going to be bothered reading Eragon just to find out about your character. That's what character profiles are for.
    3. See 1.:rolleyes:

    I've never read it, so it would be a very short discussion:

    You: "So, what did you think of Eragon?"
    Me : "Er, I've never read it..."
    You: "Nincompoop!"
    Me: "Er...probably..."

    And yes, we should stop now before the wrath of Anir descends on us.:D

    I think Anir's intent by describing the magic types that exist in his RPG was to make everyone have an equal footing in magic. Bringing in a new style of magic kind of throws that off balance. I dunno if it matters, or that was his intent, but I highly suggest that in your post in the profile thread you thoroughly describe the magic you want to use. I haven't read Eragon, TFS hasn't, and I'm sure there are others. So it would be nice if you described it, hehe.

    I also think Anir would quite appreciate not being referred to as a 'he' quite so often...but I guess that's one of the problems associated with having an ambiguous avatar.:D

    Ah, didn't know Anir's a female... I just assume that if it's not a feminine name, it must be a guy, cause I'm a jerk like that. Sorry Anir for the mistaken gender!

    Don't worry, you're not the first to make that assumption.;) I just imagine it's getting a bit wearisome now.:rolleyes:

    That, or she's used to it and laughs it off now. Just another routine oddity on TFF. :p

    Well, if the game isn't running by Monday I guess I'll give it a miss. With the new History Guild thing opening up, at least I'll have somewhere else to spread my wisdom.:p

    I don't think these things tend to get started up quickly, dismissing it so soon is probably a bad idea. I think we just need some more people to show interest and then get an admin or mod to check this thread and see all the interested people. :)

    I'm not the patient sort.:) And judging by some of the other rpgs, any clown can start one, so I doubt it requires a mod's attention. Either way, if there's no activity by Monday I'm afraid I'm out. I hate hanging around...:eek:

    It takes a mod's attention to create the section for the RPG is all.

    I don't blame you, though. I'd probably be super impatient if I weren't already in the midst of the spam war. It's a fun distraction. :)
