ok so i have no idea how many of yall are gonna hop into this gutter fire with me but just in case somebody's doin their first rodeo and needs a few pointers:

  • godmodding is basically making your character's achilles heel too hard to hit or virtually nonexistent. consider a character with multiple flaws that also doesn't have outrageous powers far above the skill level of anyone else. (examples: idk fuckin goku or smth yall are good at character creation so im not worried)
  • autohitting is posting a (usually negative) action without giving the other person a chance to respond. consider "they stuck out their hand" instead of "they shook [character name]'s hand". try not to phrase things like "he kicked [name] in the shin". other good ways to avoid this is like during fights to phrase things like "she aimed a blow at [name]'s head that, if sustained, could knock a person out" or "they lunged at [name] to try and tackle him". you know, verbs that indicate the action is in the process of happening
  • powerplaying is similar, kinda. far as i know it means you're making actions for someone else's character. i know i had major issues with this during my first few years (probably for expediency reasons bc i was too impatient to wait and the format was so bad, so fucking bad). examples include things like "they left a medallion on the floor, where [name] could see it clearly. [name] picked it up"
  • uhh i think that's about it? another thing is that mind reading is generally frustrating for everyone and that ur character shouldn't know things that arent expressly told to them (example: knowing someone's name before meeting them)
  • ok im so bad at this but depending on the setting i feel like more action/dialogue is better than lots of internal monologue (me, weeping: but...my angsty kids...my character development...) yeah idk thats more a personal resolution than anything else
  • probably to keep things uncluttered in the threads it might be good practice to direct questions via status update + mentions therein
  • ok yall hope u have fun
