OOC - New Format?

Hey Everyone!
We've been a bit dormant for a while so I'm thinking of a brand new format for Zombie_riffic.

Since most of us don't have a lot of time to RP like this online I am thinking we should make this a monthly community.

I am thinking every October (The spooky month;)) we do a month of zombie_riffic like a monthly writing or drawing challange, but with RP.
Perhaps every year we change up the senerios too.

Let me know with a comment if you think that would be a good format for everyone. If so, We'll get the com ready for October and see who wants to try their hand at being the first GM.

Let me know!

I'm all for doing this every October...shame it petered out like it did though. I can understand the time crunch everyone seems to be going through....

Maybe spot posts every now and then...like "Survivalist Snapshots" from time to time. After all, in the shambler, reaver, and puker ridden world we're all playing in, who has regular 'net access, anyway? I think we could have a lot of fun with this throughout the year....and it would keep everyone on their toes.

The main reason I'm thinking of making this a once a month deal is because we're all so busy (of couse I choose the month I'm getting married. BRILLIANT idea, Cindy;)). I think the once a month format for Zombie-riffic will help keep an interrest and really get people psyched for it its its a wham Bam excitement thing. :)

Sounds good.

My only issue with this is that I don't really understand the rules, if there are any. IE are we pretending to be ourselves, fictional characters, how do we handle interaction if any? I think I'd have issues with sharing things like locations with people I don't know so I'd want to make that fictional.

We play ourselves, yes. But personally I feel that its alright to go ficitional every once in a while. If you write yourself doing something that in real life you would not do, thats completely acceptable. You don't have to be 100% yourself.
What I strive to keep off the community is super heroes and super powers. I rather not have people with psychic powers, half elves, and/or total twinks on the game fighting zombies. We're all playing average people with no super powers, just our wits and will to survive. Thats the main rule of the game.
When one of the GMs shroud1 being the first. Posts a news post you use that as a guide line for the story. You can chose if you want to be in that area or not. The main point of the GM posts it to find out what KIND of zombies are out there.
Other than that there really are no rules. You can steer your story how ever you like. If you want to keep to your self you can, if you want to make an effort to meet up with people you can.
If you go back and read entries that myself, farlinalpha and wrote, it will give you a good idea on how interactions can be done. Its almost round robin style. Also, comments are a great way to interact. Not a lot of people have been taking advantage of commenting on entries.
I hope that helps, hon!:)
