I've been thinking about making my first RP recently. But there's the huge problem of inexperience and not knowing exactly what needs to be done to make the RP successful. I have a general idea of what I want to do, but I feel I need more experience before I can consider making one.

Vegedus wrote:Which is a shame, I think. But true. Even when I explicitly state players can and should take control of the setting and plot, they don't, as if too timid to do so. I figure that have more to do with culture than something innate, people having played more linear than open games and not feeling confident in dictating anything more than their own character.

Vegedus wrote:I don't think he has, based on what he wrote last page, but I'm basing it just as much on my play time as my GM time as well, so it's fine. You can learn from watching, though there's also some things that are only obvious from the other side of the metaphorical table.
Sentios wrote: I do think it's a cultural thing but I think it has more to do with the community rules. It seems like a negative development emerged from having respect for the other peoples' ideas, so people won't alter in it any more than they would another player's character.
First being if the player felt up to directing a plot themselves and had the creative spark neccessary, they probably would have just started their own RP instead of joining yours.
