So it's basically 'consequences'? Without folding the paper? I see. Is this usual? I've heard about Freeform Roleplaying only recently. It sounds a bit like playing poker without the cards at the moment. It might take me some time to adjust to this, as I've never played a game without confirmation of hits. So you just say, 'I've killed the monster' and that's it? Doesn't the DM have a say in it? (I suppose there is a DM, I've heard DM mentioned) You see, I last played serious RPG with other people back in 81, when D + D was quite new, so I'm very D + D oriented, apart from WWIII, which is a different matter entirely. Still, I can see that you lot are having a jolly time. Just tell yourself that I'm from another planet (planet Eris actually) and I might be able to understand better. Remember, you lot have been doing this for some time, and were probably introduced to it by a friend. I have just discovered you on the web, and really haven't got a clue. Step by step instructions on how to go about playing would be useful, otherwise I'm SURE I'm going to **** up someone's game. So far, I see it as taking turns writing a short story, which I call 'co-writing', not game playing, at the moment. Please enlighten me.
