I need to get off my ass and start roleplaying ("interactive fiction" for the uninitiated) again. Period. I keep saying I will, but then I never do, or then I get into some insane fallacy that causes me to question my own ideas. This needs to stop, or I'll never get anywhere. What makes things worse is that even when I do decide to roleplay with my friends, I always feel guilty about it; as if what I'm doing isn't up to their expectations of me.
So... to start things off, I'll give an update. Nothing has happened with any of my roleplaying characters in months. Nothing at all.
Since there's nothing new to tell, I guess I will share some information on what exactly I am talking about. For several years now, I have been (semi-)
involved with two roleplaying systems. One of them is real-time-chat-based on IRC and the other is forum-based for the gaming clan
I run. The first is with some people with whom I've been chatting for some time, the second is part of a roleplaying system I am trying to get off the ground.
After the break, I will give a brief description of the characters I have, as well as links to where you can find more information about them. (Of course, the two people who are reading this already
know about them, but whatever.) I'm putting a break in because some people might not appreciate or understand some of the concepts I deal with in my roleplaying. If you are one of those people, stop reading now
and don't read this Journal. In fact, there's really no reason to be reading anything
I write on here (or any of my other blogs) if you don't have an open mind.
After several months, I just have to post some kind of update. Not like anyone's going to read this anyway; it's mostly for my own peace of mind.
