So as might become abundantly clear Jcarter is doing me a solid and posting this in the announcement forum. Thank you Jcarter...
I am here to announce the opening of Optional Realities, a text-based RPG community. It will be a community that is similar to this one but for all games. It will be a place where we will hopefully be able to come together as staffers, players, and first time newbies to promote our genre and educate each other. What's all that mean?
1) There will be regular articles written not only by the OptionalRealities team but staff of prominent roleplay games such as Sindome, Evolution of Esos, Shadows of Isildur, HavenRPG, and others.
2) There will be a forum with a moderation policy very similar to this one
3) There will be an active community staff of experienced game designers willing to discuss ideas with players and even new game designers hoping to design their own games.
4) There will be monthly contests with cash prizes ranging from storytelling to game proposals and even best log.
A community is only as relevant as its users and so to that end I invite you all to come and post if you feel like, read if you don't want to post, and if you don't want to do other than at least check out our connections page that links to several roleplay games that might interest you (and have been discussed on this forum at varying lengths).

Jeshin: Who is Triste?

grumble: A hater, complaining about haters, who aren't really haters.
Jan 17, 2020 11:30:21 GMT -5
grumble: I mean, there's no hate to it. If a bunch of people come forward with complaints like these, you can't just blame the victims.

grumble: If, as an effect of being revealed, it drives people away from the game, it's not the truth's fault. The truth is the truth. If you don't like the truth, then change the situation to suit the narrative in your head.

Jeshin: I've noticed there is a habit of dehumanizing this board and people who bring complaints as haters, goblins, toxic, etc etc. Yet there is normally very little dehumanization here of staff or players. Or is there
Jan 17, 2020 11:45:15 GMT -5
grumble: Fucking dehumanize the world. We're all animals and we do dumb shit. There is nothing divine about humanity. That said, we have standards.
