Main Idea- The main idea of this RP is sort of a D&D idea I will play as the game master and as your characters preform different tasks I will judge the outcome whether it be reward or penalty. All characters will need to eat sleep and relieve them selves. No magic, magic would ruin the idea of this RP so it is not up for disscussion.

Rules- No godmodding one liners so on and so forth basic RP rules

Setting-North Tamriel/Southern Skyrim in the forest during the 3E
(setting is up for debate doesn't really matter so much)

Back ground- You wake up in the middle of a massive forest, you have no idea how you got there or why. The only thing you have is the clothes on you back and whatever happend to be in your pocket befor you blacked out. You and the others must strive to survive in the wild forest, whether through co-operation or playing a lone wolf.

Also once this is started it will no longer be open so I would like to get atleast 5 people before we kick it off xD if we kick it off
give me feed back and ideas so yeah hope you like it

First, I like the title... don't know why. Second, this would be hard. How would the person's character survive? Who determine's their death? Those probably be the main two issues with the RP, even though that is what the Rp, is based about.

Concept is not bad, it can stir up arguments IC, which can lead to a story... I don't know I would elaborate on your ideas, or post in an "Idea" topic thread.

As for the RP being in the third era... I have issues with that personally because my lore on the third era quote on quote.... sucks. with out the quotes..

Possibilities that can stir from this idea. D&D style, where you have to role a dice, on a big decision, or an encounter the host/game master makes. Second possibility, is improvising: having the Rper's play off of their post. With a basic plot... It could work out.

Those are my suggestions, and I hoped it helped.

This concept of no magic completely breaks lore, If you want people to create Char's who have no magical talent that is different. But as for a survival Rp not the greatest idea as the group would have extremely little to do. I don't anticipate a great result from this though a settlement Rp might do better. and maybe take out the "relieve themselves" rule. Not to tear this Rp apart or insult you but Hosting an Rp takes experience I'm not sure you have, try Rping some more before you try hosting.

If it's and Rp you want then there are a large number in development and a accepting more Rpers

I'm not really interested in joining this but I would just like to point a few things out here.

I believe that by no magic he does mean characters with no magical talent. I disagree that there would be little to do but I agree that more of a plot would definitely be better. A plot other than survive of course. I would also disagree on the point of joining more RPs before starting any. I myself never joined any RPs before I started one and it ended up rather well. Shame it died so near completion though.

I mean no disrespect Took but without experience as an Rper you will not be a good host. Rps die early because of a bad host among other things. I am not here to sugar coat things, I don't think that Maxxwell will do well as a host until he has had more experience in good rps. The influx of Rpers who poorly execute rps are what kill the Rping on this site. I am not trying to insult anyone I merely mean to educate as I wish I could have been when I first started rping here.

Reading the guides is one thing but it is another to see a well executed Rp that has stood the test of time and first hand participate in a good Rp. I don't think there is enough experience on Maxwell's part of this to do. I can't stop him or anyone else but I offer the advice to not start anything until you have Rp'ed here for awhile.

Also Maxwell Tamerial is the Whole continent Cyrodiil is the Imperial Province seen in Oblivion

Shame it died so near completion though.
Now I would have to agree with what took said, even thogh Sarin makes very valid points, since it is a task to host an RP. It would provide great experience for you. To start out, your first post or an idea in the Roleplay discusiion has to have some thought into before trying to go through with it. With my first one (Tales of a Bosmer.) I had a basic idea and some basic details about my RP. I even warned people about my disorganization and and inexperience.

Now I am not saying that it was successful, but it did grab some attention.

I can give some advice based on my own experience and what others have told me, so here it goes...

If you are wanting to test your abilities make an open RP. If your first post attracts some RPers keep going through with it.

When you do a closed RP, the idea you have should be developed enough for a person to understand the plot, and for the person to make a character, to use in that universe...

If you have a minor idea that you want help on. Rpers made a thread, statig their Rp idead. People can give feedback and advice on there.

Hope that helped and good luck.

Add on to the Op. :)
