So I have a lot of free time on my hands right now (THANKS, ECONOMY) and was looking to get into some online RP.
Specifically, I'm jonesing for some Stephen King universe stuff. Seriously, I would sell my left arm for a good plotty Kingverse RP, or a good multifandom RP with a high proportion of Kingverse plots/characters.
Generally, I'm looking for the following:
a) Journal or IM-based, *maybe* message boards. MU*s are cool in theory; in practice, I'm on during weekdays EST, which is not a giant hive of activity most of the time. Sadly, MMORPGs are not going to work, because my laptop is basically an abacus with a monitor.
b) The majority of people write coherent English. Not academic-essay perfect, but the commas should be in the right places, words that take capitals should be capitalized, and words should be spelled correctly 90% of the time.
c) Plots of the more world-saving, less who's-sleeping-with-who variety. Interpersonal stuff is awesome, but I'd like at least one or two plots based on killing stuff/running away from stuff/filibustering Congressional bills/oh god the spiders per week.
d) Urban fantasy/horror is good, medieval fantasy/LOTR is good, panfandom is good if there's plotstuff. I like some element of the supernatural; I do not watch a lot of anime or play Square games (other than Shadow Hearts, and I still need to play From the New World) so I'd prefer that neither of these be the basis for the game, and that any panfandom games not be all about the anime characters.
Any recommendations? Seriously: my left arm. For sale. To you. It makes an awesome paperweight and a pretty damn good horrible reanimated assassin-thing.
