I think my newest post is a lot better.

well BW I'm just gonna ask that you be a bit more descriptive add things like your characters emotions, thoughts, and how the setting and people affect them ,it can really change a post

EDIT: Now that was a good post.

Burnyourhousedown wrote:Yeah, I'm not exactly big on the whole length thing either, if there's a conversation going on and it's very back-and-forth, then just let the posts be as long as they need to be, I say. Don't force lengthy posts into a place where things should be fast-paced both in writing and reading. Or in this instance, it's simply a small conversation, not every post needs to be a profound exposition into a characters soul, putting that much navel-gazing into one spot makes for a very heavy over-expository beginning making it so that characters really don't have anything left to be revealed about them by the time the story gets a-moving.

There is a counterpoint in saying it helps to establish a character well early on to have them clearly defined in the beginning, however, I think for a world that we don't really know that much about, at least as far as its myths, history, lore, and such go, it's perfectly acceptable for a character to be very heavily archetypal and develop over time into something else.


THIS. Honestly, I appreciate "economy of a post". No point in adding unnecessary details that are going to just be forgotten anyways.

That is actually never true. Just because people aren't saying much at all doesn't mean you can't describe your character moving around, hand gestures, facial expressions, their thoughts, etc. There are a million things you can have your character do in a single post. To demonstrate I'll do that right now.

True...but I feel like an egotistical jackass while I do that needlessly because I'm not really contributing.

While that would be amusing, her character does seem to be nice.

Maybe a little obsessed with being a lesbian, but considering the era, I suppose that's a lot more important in that time and probably factors a lot more into their personality.

Then again, she seems rather open about it maybe it's not that big a deal.

Back to the main point, her character isn't some bloodthirsty maniac, meaning that it would be wrong for anyone to let her get killed, and very out of character for Orcus.

You don't see any of the other female characters going "RAARGH I"M STRAIGHT, I"MMA HUMP EVERY GUY I SEE!"

I wonder if it's simply that she's not being cliche about it.

If I posted a character of a lesbian female who basically has the personality of Quagmire, I'd probably get away with it.

This should now be a standard for at least one character in every RP.
