Shoutbox

Alatariel: Foxxglove, I made a character and then immediately became too intimidated to even do anything with her. So. No worries. I'm right there with ya. Nov 25, 2021 14:26:31 GMT -6
FoxxGlove: @ Alatariel. Comforting to know I'm not the only one. Are you going to give it a shot anyway? Nov 25, 2021 14:55:41 GMT -6
Alatariel: Prob not, because I don't understand half of what's going on or how to participate in the right way. Nov 25, 2021 15:02:30 GMT -6
pelwrath: My wishes that all of you, your family, and friends, enjoy a happy, blessed, and safe Thanksgiving Day. Nov 25, 2021 15:23:49 GMT -6
pelwrath: I’ll try and work on my main quest intro tonight. Nov 25, 2021 15:25:13 GMT -6
FoxxGlove: @ Alatariel. I hear ya. Starting to feel very much the same way. Nov 25, 2021 16:01:48 GMT -6
ScintillaMyntan: I never understood it, from the beginning. I thought it was going to be like roleplaying, like with a game master determining things with dice? But no, it's not? Eh, well. Nov 25, 2021 16:43:51 GMT -6
Alatariel: It's more like an interactive writing RPG. Seems really cool and detailed, I've just never done anything like it before so watching and reading helps me gain confidence to try it in the future. Nov 25, 2021 22:20:01 GMT -6 *
whaleworkforfood: Happy Thanksgiving to all those who are celebrating in the States! Nov 26, 2021 7:23:51 GMT -6
Bird: Y'all, litterbug junction IS role-playing. Not all role-playing games use GM/DM's... (Some of my favorites don't. Like Ten Candles, Archives of the Sky, and some variants of StarForged.) And some role-play games don't use dice at all. Nov 26, 2021 18:30:24 GMT -6
Bird: Though litterbug's style is very much more oriented on a sort of written-version of improv in a world-setting that folks might not be used to yet. that can seem big at first. i think talking it out - like how you wanna do it helps Nov 26, 2021 18:31:19 GMT -6
Bird: Which suffice to say, Litterbug has an over-arching world-master but not in the style of DnD (which isn't hte only role-play game out there but DnD and pathfinder are the most famous sadly enough) Nov 26, 2021 18:33:11 GMT -6
Bird: I need to write again but I just haven't felt well enough to finish my solo quest yet. lol but if y'all wanna talk it out how to do stuff like this, let me know. it's my jam Nov 26, 2021 18:34:40 GMT -6
ScintillaMyntan: I've done regular tabletop roleplaying a few times; never got into D&D/Pathfinder but have liked some other, less combat-oriented ones. Nov 26, 2021 18:59:56 GMT -6
ScintillaMyntan: I can't say I quite understand how Litterbug works, like how would a player determine whether or not something they tried to do was successful? Nov 26, 2021 19:00:34 GMT -6
ScintillaMyntan: Wish my own tabletop roleplaying group would do it more. But the guy who runs the games is constantly busy. Nov 26, 2021 19:17:09 GMT -6
Bird: Caulder lets us choose our system. Raveneye does dice rolls. I experimented with dice rolls -- I'm thinking I'll simplify it by using the Iron/Starforged "moves" rules. Or one could avoid that and just write a story too Nov 26, 2021 21:59:40 GMT -6
Bird: Archives of the Sky is a good example of a system that doesn't have "Success/fail" rolls. The system has 'roles' each player takes per "turn," and they tell a story together within agreed on parameters and with brainstorm cards. Nov 26, 2021 22:03:00 GMT -6
Bird: so each "turn" means that player is the lead narrator, other players adopt the other roles and assist the lead narrator (and voice their own characters). By end of session each player has a chance at lead narrator. Nov 26, 2021 22:03:52 GMT -6
Bird: So in a way LItterbug junction is like that. Nov 26, 2021 22:04:01 GMT -6
