Santaire, if you're interested in joining, I would recommend you post your character before this evening, as that's when I will open the action thread. However, like I said before, the recruitment thread will stay open until the story is about a third done. Don't mean to rush you, just my recommendation.

Just wanted to point out that this is actually wrong. Minimum number of sentences in roleplay threads, unless the GM specifies otherwise, is four sentences.

Note, however, that this does not mean the GM can specify he/she wants fewer than four sentences. Four is always the lowest to be allowed, a GM may specify they expect a minimum greater than this (in my current RP the sentence minimum is ten) but never less.


So in the action thread, all of Max's posts and half of Androids posts violate the minimum. If you want more to add in your posts, description is kind of key in roleplaying, especially online.

Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Okay, thanks for that Darkreever, I'll make sure to add more atmosphere into the next post. I release I didn't so a great job on my first post, as it didn't describe the metro as much as it could have. But this is my first time making a Role Play, so I apologize for any lack of details and will try to do better.

Its alright Jerek, we all need to learn at some point right?

As a personal rule of thumb, when it comes to updates from a GM (major ones mind you) I aim for about two times what I expect the players to give me in their own posts.

Should I go and fix mine or just do it correctly on all my other posts?

Hey, I hope there is room for another player. I have written up my character below.

Name: Androv Olak

Age: 33

Looks: A man of average build, Androv doesn't stand out in a crowd. Brownish hair with grey creeping in, a full red beard also with grey streaks. Grey blue eyes, Androv have a constant tired look on him, from a man who have lived to many years in the metro and survived. Androv have many scars across his body from cuts and bullet holes, telling there own story of his fortitude and his age, none have slowed him down or given any other permanent handicap.

Story: Androv have to think hard if he is to remember his childhood, his life have from a young age been about survival, the building up of and the security of Free station west. What he remembers is mostly vague images of his parents, there smiles and there love for him.

Androv have for as long he remembers had a rifle or shotgun in his hand, and loyalty for free station west and its people in his heart. Been a guard in his late teens, to be a caravan guard between the various stations that free station west trades with. A thankless job, he have worked on for a decade, that keeps several stations running, making it possible to trade supplies for much needed food, water and ammunition.

Androv have been in many skirmishes against criminals, raiders, mutants and desperate people. And have somehow survived many wounds to his, even with the substandards of medical and surgical care of the metro stations.

Androv have experienced that the metro tunnels have become more crowded, and he believes the rumors about more mutants underground. Not that he have fought of more mutants than usual, but he have seen refugees travelling the tunnels, ignoring the dangers there is. And heard more stories than he care to admit.

Androv have taught many young men and women to survive the metro and its dangers, and he feels it is the young peoples time to make there mark. That it is there time to keep the station safe, and the caravans running.
He feels that he is becoming to old, and that he soon will be more of a burden for the station than he will be a help. So he has decided to go on his last adventure, hoping that he might figure out what is happening, and then can help his station and friends in some way or another.

Perks: Rifle Training, Melee Training, Survival and Operate Machinery.

Equipment: Strained grey shirt, black jacket with several patches, brown pants, hiking boots, black toque.

Repaired rifle, twenty eight degraded rifle rounds, combat knife

One bag of dried mushrooms, two large mushrooms

Rusty Swiss army knife, small water bottle, very rare tinderbox and four matches, a wrench, all held within a black bag.

Sneaky Wood Elf.
Give me a 5+ ward save and I can't be killed.

Anilar, I've sent the PM with your gear in it. Thank you for joining this RP.

Unfortunately, I think five people is the most I can handle. So this thread should be considered closed until someone already in the RP drops out.

I believe you can change the title of this thread, where you can write recruitment closed or something.

Most other RP's keep continuing using the Recruitment thread for any /ooc talk, so the RP thread is kept clean of questions and similar. But I can do your colour thing in the RP thread no problem, just informing you what others do.

The name with black text is a good idea, if people have discipline enough to read only what they should read. Serpion5 does something similar, but he somehow, (don't know how) makes a little tab beside the name, where spoiler is written. When clicked it opens a little box where the text is written. Not that it will stop people from reading if they want to read, but it might just feel nicer.

Finally thanks for letting me join, ill read up on the RP and see if I can write up a post.

Generally only site staff ever have the ability to change a thread title, and that is the case here on Heresy.

In an ideal world it won't matter, and in general it should not matter if you read someone else's update since you can't act on it anyway. (Unless you and another person have the exact same update of course.)

That would be Serpion adding spoiler tags, done in the same way you add quote or url tags.

That being you type spoiler (or quote, or url) in between a pair of brackets at the start of the text you want to hide and then /spoiler (or /quote, or /url) in brackets at the end of it. (Should look like [ spoiler ][ /spoiler ] but remove the spaces to make it work.)
