As part of our remodeling and rejuvenation project for the game, we the Mod Team want to know what YOU think. So for this post, we have anonymous, screened commenting, with IP-logging off. Tell us what you want from this game and, if you have any ideas, what we can do to help you get what you want.As a starting point: Character caps/activity checks: Yay or Nay? What do you see as wrong with Mansion right now? What could be done to improve things?ETA: Please stand by while we fix a few things - Kaylin And fixed. Go time!
Every story needs something. Yes, things like action, romance, and drama are good, but every good story really needs a plot. This game is really no different. We're all writing stories with our characters and for our characters, and those stories need plots. I know there are some people here who think that they aren't good at plotting, and that's ok. And even those of us who are good at plotting can always have room for improvement. Thus I bring you a few pieces of advice about thinking up and running plots.( PLOTTING AND YOUCollapse )Hopefully, you'll find some of the information above useful. It may look like a lot to remember, but there's really nothing to it. In addition to the above, I also suggest reading our tips on coordinating fight scenes, written by Rach, a former player of ours.
Welcome! mansion_bullpen is the OOC members-only community for marvel_mansion, a play-by-post roleplaying community. marvel_mansion is winding down as a community - those of us who remain engaged and interested are planning to create a new community that has less divergent continuity, to make it more welcoming to new players. As such, this applications page should be considered defunct. There's always the possibility that a surge of interest will revitalize the game, but for the time being, this disclaimer is appropriate.If you wish to apply despite this warning, then you may still expect a response.We are building a new community at the_marvels.This community serves as our backstage area, where we coordinate plots and scenes. If you're interested in applying for membership in our game, please contact the mods. You can e-mail us at marvelmods AT gmail.com, or you can leave a comment here. Rules and guidelines for applications :We take at least 24 hours to consider all applications. Someone will respond to your application to confirm that we have received it and we will begin deliberating. We look at a variety of factors, some of which will be described in more detail below. In rare cases, we may contact you requesting a second sample post - this is more likely to happen if the initial sample was short or if the character is a very important one with personal relationships.We do allow Original Characters, but they may only be applied for by established members of the community. Once someone is established with a canon character, they may apply for OCs.( Application FormCollapse )General Game Guidelines
