There's nothing wrong per se with it, but we had enough problems last time with people getting far too fond of injecting some very realistic agressive finger-pointing and advancing preposterous theories over and over at length. And they were players - you know who you are SIR!
If you want to post to those extremes in the game then play don't gawp - it'll interfere with the game too much and maybe scupper what the game-runner's trying to achieve.

This isn't a fanfic or story-telling thread, it's just a very silly and absorbing elimination game with a vague Discworld theme. It's entirely up to you so long as you realise it's not going to get much reaction from anyone and take umbrage as a result *shrugs*
I'll shut up now and won't say I told you so if you get bored or give up

That kind of thing went on a lot in this Games forum - see Story About Discworld - Starring, The Fans of Terry Pratchet for freefall RP and The Chaos Singularity for creative writing - mspanners used to do some great Discworld fanfic too, but unfortunately I couldn't find his old thread(s). Making a specific RP/personal writing thread in here will secure the comment and feedback that you might find more invigorating and encouraging Q
