The Story Guide Posted September 19, 2012 Share Posted September 19, 2012 Old World of Darkness Open World Forum Proposal Setting: Old World of Darkness, no Judgement Day materials System: Old World of Darkness Date: Today, a calender will be created to keep track of events & threads. Premise: The millennium has come and gone, and save for a bit of insanity from the more superstitious of the supernatural community, nothing happened. No Gehenna, no Apocalypse, no mass Ascension, nothing. Life - or unlife, in some cases - goes on, the world spins, and pretty much nothing's different except for Smartphones and increased security at airports. Paris shines as a bustling center of trade, politics, and culture on the European continent and is a nexus of the strange, frightening, and hidden. In the City of Lights, there are many shadows. Gameplay: This is an Open World forum. There are very few rules, most of them dictated by the setting itself. Sheets must be created for each character and posted before writing for that character.There are no experience rules, but keep in mind that the forum is completely consensual and creating broken or super-duper-most-special-snowflake characters is likely to result in little interest from other writers to include your character in their stories.No Spheres at 6 for Mages if you intend to play on Earth. You can have that if you're strictly keeping your character to Horizon realms. I'm not as conversant with some of the other supernatural types, so this rule may be expanded to include them if necessary.Anything that would drastically effect or alter Paris may only be done with my permission. This is to keep a stable area for writers to write within. Outside of Paris, there is much more leeway, but remember the interconectedness of the world. Burning down London or starting a civil war in the US would effect Paris. Destroying a small village in East Asia or sparking off a new round of sea battles between the Gangrel and Losambra, not so much. Have fun, but don't burn the game down, please.I do reserve the right to kick a writer from the forum for egregiously rude or confrontational behavior. This is primarily aimed at OOC behavior, but a pattern of un-fun-ly disruptive or 'god-mod' characters can also earn banishment. This isn't a threat, I just want a low-stress place to play some oWoD.I am the final arbiter of whatever on the forum. I may appoint others that can act in my stead as well. This is to provide a 'final decision' person if needed, but again, I'm not looking to spend much time playing parent to forum. We're adults, please act like it. That's it so far. Questions? Comments? Please put a post if you're interested, as well. I'll start up a Character Profile thread once I have a bit of feedback. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
