PostSubject: INTERACTIONS & COMBAT   INTERACTIONS & COMBAT EmptyTue Jul 08, 2014 12:04 pm

If you've never done this or any online, play by post roleplaying before, you may want to view the forums and examine how other writers are interacting with each other. It's fairly simple once you get the hang of it. Playing is done by writing your character's actions and responding to what other characters are doing. You can only respond to people's actions and play your character. You can't write for other people or control their characters (that's called cheating, or autoing). Perma-death is possible, but you can't kill someones character unless they agree or a staff member OK's it. The later being a very rare occurrence. Combat is not the primary goal of writing here, its the creation of a story. So if your character is in a fight, it is in your best interest to do a few things:

1) Do not assume your attacks on other characters will hit them.

2) It may help to talk to and decide with your opponent ahead of time what you want to happen.

3) Do not come up with powers and items you need out of nowhere.

4) Do not try to play with your powers and bend what's written in your profile to help you gain an advantage.

5) Trying to be too powerful in general is called god-modding. Don't do it. Nobody will want to play with you and the staff will get on your case. The less powerful you are, the less of a godmodder you are and the easier it is for everyone involved.

6) Let people hit you. You must let people hit you sometimes. What kind of book would you write where your main hero never takes a beating or never gets hit by anything? One that we don't want to read or partake in.

7) If you are comfortable with the people you are writing with, you may wish to come to an agreement with them to allow auto-hits. This means that "you can hit me if I can hit you" and can make everything much easier. Do this only if you're mature enough to be able to compromise for good writing and only if you have gotten to know the other person. If it causes a problem: take your losses, call it off, and don't cause a scene.

Cool You cannot kill another player's character without having permission to do it, or unless a staff member says you can. (Which will be an extremely rare occasion for a staff member to do that.)

Fairness is always the best policy :v)
