So I'm curious about a few things, from other roleplayers perspectives. First, when it comes to different communities, obviously there's all the many many games out there. There's pb_updates and dozens of private iconmakers' community accounts when you need icons. There's rp_tutorials for people to post layouts and codes and questions and such. There's communities set up for game and rp advertisements. And there's the occasional bragging and venting comms.
But what I'm really looking for is just a socializing community for roleplayers. Somewhere people can meet new writing partners, chat about ideas, do silly meme things, talk shop, and just hang out. And I know there are people who don't write themselves, but like to follow games as readers, they could come in too and hang with the writers and become more involved with the RP community if they so choose. It'd be like the OOC coms that most games have, but on a larger, more public scale. Is there a place like that out there? Would other people be interested in something like that? I think it'd be awesome.
And second, I keep thinking someday I want to start and mod a game. Not right now, because school is kicking my ass as it is, but someday. I have some ideas, a few panfandom premises, mostly. But also, I'm curious how many people would be interested in a multifandom, non-supernatural game. Of course I love my vampires and magic users, but I can't help thinking it'd be fun to do a game that's made purely for characters set in the real world - things like Friends, Castle, 24, How I Met Your Mother, the CSI and NCIS programs, Law and Order, Scrubs, House.... all the non-supernatural fandoms. Without any conflicting magics or critters or apocalypses, I bet they could blend faaairly well, though obviously adjustments would need to be made for year, politics, and world-wide events. I just think it would be a fun thing to try out, something different. And hey, if people wanted, there's even the opportunity to play characters from supernatural-themed shows too, only adapted to an AU where they were all average joe humans too. Would anyone else like something like that? (see this is one of those times we could use a roleplayer meeting place).
