This is just an idea for a community I came up with. I'm not sure if there are others out there like it, but this is my take on it anyway. It's called "impromptu role playing." The format is similar to that of a RPG, but without the constrictions, committment, or plot basically. :D I noticed a few friends doing this over on Great Journal one of the many times that LiveJournal went down, to bide their time until it came back up. It was fun, so there you have it.
Rules There are no "Rules" persay, just instructions. If you've found the community and aren't sure what's going on, here's where I'll tell you.
Anyone can start a post or a "prompt." It doesn't have to be long, just a few sentences or a short paragraph. Enough to give someone else a notion as to where you might be going with it and who the other character(s) involved may be. Anyone can reply to a post or prompt, but whoever replies first is the winner so to speak, and will be the one involved in the Thread.
If two people end up cross posting, say a minute or two apart, the second person should just delete their post and allow the first commmenter to play.
If you have a specific person in mind to RP with, just put it in the subject line of the thread.
The comment "tag" does not have to be long, just a sentence or two or however long you feel like making it really. There's no limit to how many comments you may have in a thread.
Please only posts RP threads, nothing off-topic such as community pimps, etc.
Also, you can use icons to depict the character that you are "role-playing" but if you can't (don't have the space,etc.) It's not necessary.
you_r_it is the sister community to Potter_tag. It is a place to arrange play dates, announce you're favorite new thread, or give the writers feedback. Go join!
