thankyou for the idea jan and cheery:)

Heres a thread similar to cheeries sentence-by-sentence game. We can add up to 2 sentences each of a story about discworld, but with a twist; we are the characters!!:P then we add our characteristics to the character - please give a (relativley)short list of traits, havits and other when u sign up

We choose a character to be at the start, at least 5 people before we start.
I can just a imagine a sergeant poohbcarrot von ubervald :lol: :lol:

Roll Up, Roll Up, ladies and gentlemen, feegles, anthropomorphic personifications, bears, dwarfs and dwarfs.

Actually, after we have 5 people, we'll just treat the rest of the characters as normal until someone else takes up the mantle.

Now we have: Ponder as the Bursur
and introducingJan as Gaspode

OK - less just wind back a bit 'cos I think we're getting confused here.

I'm guessing what Cheery is asking is whether we're to make up a Discworld character of our own - like the Librarian's girlfriend maybe :wink:

OR

play an original one - namely one of Terry's as featured in the books like Ponder Stibbins now the Bursar of UU

This is where I think the confusion's arising as you're meaning we're to play real life ourselves - in other words 'you' as in the real the TP forum member?

So in that case if I'm me the person typing this but playing me as Gaspode then I need to amend Gaspode's charactistics a little bit...

Like so?
smelly
scruffy
cynical
a survivor
occasionally entertains hopes of meeting interesting males of any age and comparing licky ends (What? It's a doggy ailment... :twisted: )
sore feet
occasionally saying things that need saying

Woof?

good choice, tina.

Ok. Now we have:
Ponder as the Bursar
Jan as Gaspode
Cheery as Cheery
Tina as Susan

Only one more to go.

Should we use our own names, or will that be too confusing since most of us are TP freaks(duh!!). Or we could use are normal names we only entrust to our best friends, like Dorothy.
If we want to divulge that.
Its up to u, just dont make it a different case for everyone.
