Night Shift - The nocturnal forum game [ENDED]
« on: August 23, 2016, 12:22:24 am »

 I'll only be running this forum game from 10:00 PM to 12:00 AM PDT each day. You do not have to be present every session, nor do you have to stay until we reach 12:00 AM (but do inform me when you leave early). Since time is limited, I suggest that you check for updates frequently so you won't hold everyone else behind. Now with that out of the way, it's time to make a character:

Spoiler: Character sheet (click to show/hide)
Spoiler: Current adventure (click to show/hide)
Spoiler: Dice mechanics (click to show/hide)

Playerlist
Spoiler: Powder Miner (click to show/hide)
Spoiler: My Name is Immaterial (click to show/hide)

PBP, I imagine?
That stands for play-by-post, right? What's the difference between that and normal forum-based rpgs?

Essentially none; they're almost always play-by-post. I wanted to make sure that this wasn't over IRC.

Okay. By the way, do you want to make a character?

Accepted. What do you think the setting should be?

Let's go with the Korean War.
Hmm... that's way too specific, and it covers a topic that I hardly know anything about. Could you choose something else?

Hehe, sure. Let's just choose some sort of modern war in general, or something. To be fair, though, I'm not really invested in any one setting, so I'd like to see what Immaterial has to offer.

Hmm... is close to 12 and we haven't even started. Do you think we could extend it, say, an hour just this once, to get things rolling?

 Also, we still need Immaterial's idea for the setting.
