This is for a forum rpg right?

Well first off you should ditch the d6 system.

Then you should get rid of skill list

And after that, just add more to everything else.

Oh why you so sad?
What have they done?
Forget those mindless baboons
They're off playing god
Copycats in cheap suits
All playing it safe
While cannibals with their bad news
Consume the parade

Is it so... Wonderful?

Try taking a look at the RPGs that are actually running right now, see how we run things around here.

 

Then stop Capitalizing Every Single Word.

 

Then create a developed setting and premise.

This RPG has no content. What are skills, and why do we use them? Also, saying I can have as many as I want is really bad, as it implies I can have 'Ride dog', or 'Speak Latin', if skills even work that way. Next, how do we get loadouts? Do we start with them or what?

 

Then stop Capitalizing Every Single Word.

He has a font setting that does it automatically.

I used to have a banner here.

 

But that RPG is dead.

 

What now?

Solution: Stop being Kanaya Maryam.

 

Also learn to design TBRPGs.

It evaporated sometime after Wrack left the scene. Due to the three flops of RPGs, Transformers RPGs are currently not being approved by a majority of the Judges, until we receive some form of proof that there's an actual playerbase there. Considering the state of things right now... yeah it's not here, see aforementioned evaporation.

I dunno, the FTL, Marvel, and Pokemon one seem to be pretty popular. There might not be as wide a variety as there once was, but I'd say there are still "glory days" now.

As someone who was around in the glory days, no, this is the last remnants of a town trying to scavenge to get by. Pokemon exists on life support and Marvel/FTL are basically the same player bases keeping things moving.

 

Also stop to consider that the three popular RPGs you cited are the only RPGs. Three RPGs is not glory days man, I can remember when the COT sustained over ten RPGs at a time.

In my world it is, considering I come from the Lego RPG forum, where we can only manage about three at a time. Is it just me, or is BZP slowly dying?

That's an... interesting interpretation of how RotR is faring, one that I'll chalk up to being an outsider's perspective.

 

In actuality, the Pokémon RPG is probably thriving more now than it has in a long, long time. While the rate of posts in the discussion topic and playing topic aren't necessarily the highest (which is primarily my fault, due to being busy and not being able to advance several of the current small-scale plots), it's mitigated by the fact that our players are constantly in communication with each other on wiki chat--literally coming up with new stuff and refining what we have every single day. So, even if our overall activity appears low, our level of investment and story building/planning has never been higher--right now we've got a ton of awesome stuff planned in addition to the main plot and enough dedication to the game to actually see that stuff through.

 

In essence, we've foregone quantity in favor of quality--to an extent. When we're able, we actually do make a lot of posts within a short span of time; our schedules just don't tend to line up that well or that often.

 

tl;dr RotR's doing wonderfully and it's not going anywhere anytime soon.

 

That doesn't change the fact that the OTC RPG scene overall is slowly but surely dying, but I thought I'd correct that since you mentioned it nonetheless. :)

"Shall this great kingdom, that has survived, whole and entire, the Danish depredations, the Scottish inroads, and the Norman conquest; that has stood the threatened invasion of the Spanish Armada, now fall prostrate before the House of Bourbon? Surely, my Lords, this nation is no longer what it was! Shall a people, that seventeen years ago was the terror of the world, now stoop so low as to tell its ancient inveterate enemy, take all we have, only give us peace? It is impossible! ...My Lords, any state is better than despair. Let us at least make one effort; and if we must fall, let us fall like men!"

It isn't that the RPG scene is dying, but the fact people (at least myself for instance) have a lot of other things to do. If I had the time to roleplay, I would jump back into RotR right this instance. However, a full time job, college, moving out, and various other reasons consume almost all of my free time. (I couldn't even tell you the last time I even had time to read a book that wasn't school or work related). I could probably work some activity in here and there, but it would not really contribute to anything. An occasional post from me once a week in an RPG would result in just about nothing getting done.

That's my two cents on the subject at least. I just don't have the time.  :dontgetit:
