Ok. We can start as soon as we sort out the names problem.
Any suggestions?

OK - with roleplay games we get this all the time and it's v. simple to address

Cheery and Tina don't really have a prob as their playing characters are the same (or mostly in Tina's case)

As for the rest us - as we're playing characters that are different from their user names we just name our character at the top of our posts - so I would do this at the start of my post -

GASPODE
Gaspode was in a very bad mood, he really was. The Canting Crew had been playing him up something chronic and as for Angua! Blah blah blah...


Some forums also encourage people to put a small pic of their character beside their character name as well - this is the one of Glorfindel that I use for Lord of the Rings games when I play him

Glorfindel:
Elven Battle Chieftain (would use that title in a Battle game :P )

This way people can use the 'flags' in the post window to identify who's who :wink:

PMSL :lol:

Well that's sort of what I meant Capt Cabbage, but I did say small... :P

Would you like me to reduce your lovely avatar to non-smartypants proportions (about 75% sprout size) if this means you're playing...? :twisted:

I didn't realise Sammy the slug was carrying and he pulled a knife on me! :D

...I'd love to join, but I'd probably get confused over some Discworld reference or another. :\

No I didn't. :lol:

Jan's off on one of her role playing gamey-type things again, of which I have absolutely no idea of the rules. Plus I don't recall any Captain Cabbage appearing in Discworld.

You could call yourself Skippy and be a kangaroo from XXXX and just make up your own rules as you go along. :D

I always get it all wrong anyway. :(

Fine. Assuming it's alright to join...
I'm just going to go for a character from another role-playing thing. Behold, my Valenth roleplaying character, Skylux Irikassion! :D
Image

Traits:
Scientist's apprentice
Senses occurences on the seven planes of reality, (I'll change this to 'octarine' for discworldiness's sake) after a magical accident some years ago (Wow, talk about un-original)
Tall but physically weak
Irritatingly clever

Here we go again :roll:

re: reading posts - the most vital post to read when you join a thread is the 1st one. This one was started by Ponder :P and combines a partial RP for people to play a combination of themselves and their real life characteristics, meshed in with a disc character (so yes, you can make up a character of your own or use one of Terry's) with the round robin idea of writing a story together 2 sentences at a time as you chosen character (I think).

Ponder's trying to work out how we can do this in character if we're not playing this by username and I'm suggesting a method to keep our character's straight that's used on my own and other RP sites all the time - but Ponder's heading this up so maybe he or the others have a better idea. But you've got a nice scarred sprout avatar out of it if nothing else pooh :lol:

Meh. I like to write. Actually, writing a book right now (Although I never expect to finish it. I had to start over when I dropped my laptop and lost everything, now I've resorted to writing it on my graphics calculator.) And I'm reasonably new to Valenth too - but I still pride myself on my extra-long posts.

Oops, Jan posted while I was writing. Ok, I'm sorry, should have read it more closely. I'm pretty sure that my character still qualifies, though, as they contain a similar personality to my own.

Plus I don't recall any Captain Cabbage appearing in Discworld.


Captain Carrott? :wink:
