Hello! One and all i was curious to if anyone whould like or if we could possibly make a sort of giant sitewide story/plot? Kinda like someone starts and others add onto the idea? Like a choose your own adventure type deal? Combine everyones unique creative ideas into one crazy multiplayer roleplay??


Im not sure if anyone whould be down for this or if we are even allowed but i thought itd be a nice way to get everyone together and meet new people while also dipping toes into even newer roleplay styles..anyway thanks for listening!!

You realize how many users we have, and how variable our availability is? XD

We do sort of have a site-wide story during epic week though. It's not an RP in the way that most of them run here, but we all get to collectively participate to overcome an enemy in dice-based combat and solve puzzles to reach the goal, and there's nothing wrong with using it as RP inspiration!

But trying to get any kind of cohesive story out of every member writing it would be super unweildly at best and fall apart long before most folks could do anything with it at worst.

Yes i do, hence the varying styles and i know everyones on at different times, which i thought would also add to the fun, leaving it off one someones cliffnote or post and then another comes in and adds there own twist...nvm tho guess it cant be done. Oh well just thought it was a nice idea

You are still welcome to attempt to organize as big of a thing as you can manage. Only a fraction of members are likely to be interested, but that might still be a pretty huge number. :)

Presently, the closest we have are groups with specific settings, but those still tend to separate out different areas and events and stuff, so folks can be doing their own thing.

Something else you might appreciate, if you just want a big collective story and don't mind going to a different site: one of the "item" types on Writing.Com, Interactive Stories, is pretty much exactly what you describe. They are branching "choose your own adventure" type stories, and depending on settings, may allow anyone to add a new chapter if they get to the end of a branch.
