Current Characters [Future RoKK Format]

Post by Admin on Tue May 10, 2011 10:02 pm

Since there will be times when there is a large group of people all roleplaying in the same area, having a running count of the Current Players will be good to have, especially for people just entering a room.

How it works: Start with an empty room. This will likely be one defined by an Administrator or Moderator and describes it and its uses. At the end of the post, there will be "[Current Characters: ]".

A character then enters the room. They make a post as to what they are doing, and then adds at the end of their post "[Current Characters: XName]".

Someone else enters, and at the end they add their name.

This continues for some time. When a character then makes an exit, they still post the Current Characters, but with their name removed. This will keep a running count for the current participating characters in a given roleplaying setting.

Could they just sign it

- Name of Character

For whoever they are in that post?

That defeats the purpose. The purpose is to have a running count, not just announce who they are. That should be readily apparent.

Maybe I was being too vague.

If there are five characters participating in the same thread currently, and the thread belongs to a tavern in some town (which means it's a permanent thread, the people there just change), then at the end of a character's RP post there will be:

"[Current Characters: 1Name, 2Name, 3Name, 4Name, 5Name]"

And later on when 2Name leaves, in the post that they leave they will write

"[Current Characters: 1Name, 3Name, 4Name, 5Name]"

That way, when 6Name joins, he or she doesn't have to look at the past three pages to figure out who's already there. When they join up, they write

"[Current Characters: 1Name, 3Name, 4Name, 5Name, 6Name]"

And so on.

I'm sure someone will find it redudant but it has my vote. It won't be needed until we have a lot of people RPing but will be useful when we do.

Right, which this is what its intended for anyway. This will go up in some of the RP rules for the final version.
