This is gonna be simple: I'll run a fake game and every phase a random person will do the writeup. After that we'll rate the write-ups. Come see how you respond to various situations. Post if you want to try.

Sign me up. Also this should go in the "Signups" section since it's signups for a game.

Put me in coach.

I'm interested to find out if I do alright with subjects I'm not 100% enamored with (like AoT).

Insightful.

Hell no we're not running them at the same time. Or at least, if Bious wants people to play we're not running them at the same time.

When I say "run the game" I mean I'll be handling the players, interactions, and all that. Players will only be writing writeups.

So what, you're making up interactions and seeing who can make something work?

Pretty much. Like "Player A leads lynch on Player B because B hinted a role."

I may join.  I'll consider it.

I'm just looking at this like a workshop and I know PW and I do fairly good with this improv writing, so I don't want to discourage others if they feel like they can't stack up.

Maybe you need judges?

Well, I think I could add some pointers.  I mean I could do that and play though.

I still think there are some areas where I am lacking when I make these write-ups, so I may join actually.

I don't know you.








You're perfect.


Last call, and then I'll start a new thread tomorrow for our writers. These will be the qualities you'll (mostly) be judged on:


Impact: Am I gonna read your write up or skip to the results section?
Theme: Did you follow the theme? How well?
Length: How much work did you put into typing it.
Grammear: du u wrte gud Engrish??!?! And how deep be thy lexicon?
Style: Do you keep it classy or get down and dirty? No matter, just make sure you go all out.

Bonus: A secret.

Will everyone be given a different theme and scenario, or will we be using the same scenario and theme?

Also, will we be scored on the time factor? I feel like that's one of the biggest obstacles to overcome when creating write-ups.

Same theme, different scenario.

Not really, but if you take three days for a write-up we may have a problem.

In reality, you get like 12 hours of mental planning to do before a deadline, then you throw it all out because they changed votes last minute and suddenly you need a new writeup off the top of your head lol

Im also down for playing now

Can I hijack this thread and use it as a platform to suggest a game theme?

Catch-22

SO many characters, SO many relationships, SO many antics. If I could write worth a damn, and understood that book a bit better, I'd think about doing it but as it stands I don't know if I've got the chops for it.
