Ok, just a crazy idea: to create a full new sub-forum about this, and to do 2 things:

1. Describe the characters. Each member chooses a character and describes it. Further information can be added by other members if he/she agrees.

2. After having all characters described, story will start, like a role game: a character describes a part of the story/action lead by him/her, then another user/character describes another part in which he/she takes part too...

What do you think?  :insane:

Well, Vlad,

then you could be the game master and set up rules, don't you think?

Cheers!

Rule 2.1. Evil, or possibly evil characters like me don't die, either, or they have a very vivid afterlife.

Weeeeell...5 characters by now. Not a lot, but perhaps, characters enough to start with. New characters can be added. Let's the fun begin!!!!!

PS. A negative point for this kind of stories is that if any of the players is gone for some time (one weekend, one week...), things can happen withouth his/her participation. I suppose we can try to avoid punishing other characters when absent, can't we?  :ninja:

I still have to write my character, but I don't have enough inspiration... I've been asking people about certain features I might forget or not observe, but they keep telling me the same thing: beauty, intelligence, good archer and excellent blade user... it's almost boring *sigh* Enough to start with, I suppose. You guys could think of some more, pleease!

Thanks Tequila!

Well, a secret is ever interessant for a character. Perhaps a dark secret, perhaps not... who knows? Some event some hundreds or thousands of years ago which still affects you, or some promise you did to someone (but... who? and... dark or light one?).

A secret should be easily attachable to my character, as I already wrote she's quite different from other Elven ladies  :lol:

It seems that the story has just re-born thanks to the great hability for long and full-of-epic-literature wisdom of IronCretin. Checking the previous posts, it seems that it was me who killed the story, not replying when I had to  :unsure:

Perhaps people can post here again, create a character if has not, and make this come back to life!  :wOOt:

I read every thread BUT this one, FOOLISH CRETIN!  :evil2: *whips Cretin* Ummm. . . sorry. . .  :bawl: :bawl: :bawl:
