I wanted to create a resource for people interested in starting events, circles, plotlines, what have you - Really I'd like to create a hard and fast guide!
What are some good sources you've found for creating RP? Any anecdotes or lessons you've learned? Anything you use for inspiration to help you make events engaging and interesting?
For me: I've learned that rewarding RP doesn't really need to be plots or events, but prompts. RPing at its core is writing a character - The purpose of this other stuff is what is my character doing? If I say "My character is at a night club" - We know the prompts that go into a nightclub - Music, dancing, drinking, socializing.
If I say "Come out to Farside", that's not really a prompt but a location. If I say "I'm hunting for asteroids on Farside", that kind of evokes more - OK, my character is looking for rocks in space! Why? What motivation can I do? How would they do that?
What other things have you discovered that you want to share?
