The size of the world is undertermined. Remember, the whole point of this new RP is to have as much freedom as possible. As for people meeting up: look at the begining of the first CCRP. The map was huge. We only have about ten members. But almost at once people started to join up to become the Misfits. I'm sure when people start to join this RP they won't just drop randomly onto the map. They, more likely than not, will arrive in clumps and support each other.

This RP is still in it's early planning stages, so you won't be able to join just yet. Your character can be whatever you want, but be warned: people who have become saddled with a king character, including myself, have felt trapped and bored with him after a while. It's not all that it's cracked up to be.

Then don't make any of your characters king of their own rogue nation of elite warriors!
I repeat my above statement.

Well, let me point out that if you really wanted the old RP to continue, you would have continued posting reguarly.
Robin Hood wrote:Moving on to this new storyline. It certainally has some good ideas (or lack of, depending on how you see it). I trust that at least a few rules and such will kept. Such as A map. I mean if we don't have a predetermined map, everybody will be lost and will argue over the geography. I also trust the current rule of "only castle stuff" will stay. Meaning no cannons, guns or space aliens.
Technically, the first RP map was undertermined too. It just had faction borders and coastlines. This map will not have that. You have the ability to shape the land how you want. Once a RPer writes it, it becomes canon, and the map will be edited to show this change. The castle-only stuff will stay.
Robin Hood wrote:Question: Will newly written RP posts be considered law when writting new posts. Say I write in a post that a mountain is on grid X-X. Will future RPs who might happen to come to that area have to include the mountain in the story, or can they re-write it so that in place of the mountain there is a lake?
See above. Every RP post is canon unless it contridicts a previous RP post.
Robin Hood wrote:Also, when you say this world is alone, do you mean that we cannot bring people from another world, not even through the use of magic. Like, can we have a magical portal that lets people cross over from another universe. I think it would be kinda cool to use characters from other lands that we already know of. Example: Kae-Os enters this new land and has new adventures, completely unrelated to his adventures in Dametreos. Would this be allowed?
No. Alone is alone. This is exactly the situation I want to prevent. I want this to be a complete fresh start. There will be NO connection to other worlds. No cameos, nothing. That being said, note that I said world. A world is a large place. Dametreos was basically one big continent with various islands. This new world doesn't need to be like this. Actually, I'd prefer if it had many other continents.

Well, I'm seriosuly looking forward to this.
I do think,though, that we should establish a few official factions before starting, to give players something solid to work with, not just letting people make ridiculous factions here there and everywhere.
Three guesses which faction I'm taking.
I am trying to avoid what happened in the old RP - typecasting whole factions as one type or another. KK2 already had a lot of baggage attached to it, as did the Dragon Masters, or Forestmen, or whatever.
I repeat, this is meant to be a fresh start. A completely new break. Feel free to create new factions. But do not create any LEGO theme clones.

You know, I was reluctant to participate in the old RP, becaue I am new and it was old and distinguished. But if we're starting again, then yes, I will join. Do we need to sign up or something???
(Again, I mean)
Yes, you will need to sign up. I'll make a post when I'm ready for people to sign up.

Well as far as that goes, you could always finish writing them up and post it in the stories forum sometime. Or, if you ask really nicely, maybe Nate will leave the old rp thread open and you could post in there.
Note that this new RP is not replacing Dametreos. The old CCRP threads will remain open. But I honestly do not expect to see many new additions.
The Green Knight wrote:Quick question... Is the new world going to run on real time with all the seasons and all that like Dametreos did?
I think that's a safe bet. It certainly made things much easier.
