Text Messages is NOT Storytelling
This is going to be a really short post for me. No long book to read but a simple statement of how I regard the abuse of Text Messages in role play.
Start of Rant!
If you are actually role playing in the real world via your phone, that is all well and fine, but for the LOVE of all that is good and lovely in this world, DON’T post it up in the text message format on your story board.
DO NOT assume that you…
Why I Hesitate to Play – Breaking the Silence
My sister wrote a post over on her blog that got me to thinking. (Here is that post FFRP– The Basics) Over the many long years I have been playing, I have been disrespected more times then I can even count. I have been attacked, blacklisted, bullied, slandered, maligned, back stabbed, vilified, threatened, and more. I had one give my physical address and tell me in great, graphic and gory detail how he was going to decapitate me. (I don’t like gory so this was distressing.) I have been…
The World of FFRP and Art Credits Revisited, AGAIN!
The artist belongs to his work, not the work to the artist.
That pesky trend or perhaps lazy behavior is as always returning from my recent perusal of the newest profiles over on Dragonsmark’s Red Dragon Inn. No one should be surprised by my posting about this as it is well known I am a strong advocate for giving artists credit if you use their work. It irks me to no end to see folks failing to do that. If the image is good enough to use for YOUR…
Keeper of Secrets
I created this for one of my best friends role-playing characters, his name is Daugolozan and the look here is his usual human glamor which he dons while out and about. The illusion he wears hides that he is actually a Dracoliche. Needless to say he isn’t the nicest of beings but he is most certainly interesting.
I had to do a bit more post work on this one to get it to look the way I saw in my head, but I am pretty pleased with the results!
The Spell Checker is my Friend.
Thank goodness for Spell checkers! If I didn’t have them I would likely look like a blithering idiot when writing. It’s not that I am a poor speller, as I was a Spelling Bee kid early on. My problem is my fingers hitting the wrong keys. My brain knows how to spell, but my fingers don’t.
So to combat this issue, I found a handy checker to keep me from looking like that blithering fool I…
Not Giving Credit is Stealing
This is a warning, because the following post has the possibility of upsetting those that might see themselves displayed here. To be blunt I am not directing this at any specific person, but at the behavior. If you do recognize yourself in what I am about to say, that is not on me but fully on you.
Now, with that disclaimer out of the way I am ready to discuss Art Thieves. I am a role-player. I have been playing for years upon years.…
