If words can start wars then they can start good role-playing games too! Descriptions about your character, their background, the combat scenes and stuff like that really bring it together like no video can just the words man… the words god it.
I can describe this as 'cute'. I have to try ROK II, I still haven't yet and always meant to but every time I come here I get lost in reading the topics and then its time to get back to work like right now. rolleyes. Keep up the good work I like watching videos… maybe too much.
Cute video, good explanation of what text roleplay is like. One of the issues with games like this is it will only appeal to someone who likes more control over their character and the story. I don't know, maybe that is dying because of video games.
That's one of the best explanations I've seen about roleplay using a text interface. I originally joined this site to play your ROK II but got lost in the discussions. I need to go create a character now.
Great explanation. I'm new into games like this with all the descriptive writing but it's kinda nice. Really makes you be creative and use your head. I love it!
In real life I tend to use one word to describe things so that tends to happen in my writings as well but thanks to many of you I think I'm improving through reading what you put in the character journals.
