Several Times I have seen and Read Something called an 'RP'
Does anyone Know Where I could find a List of Spidwebs RPs?

I searched, but to no avail . . .

An RP is a role play, which is basically a story, only you act out a character and write the story post by post.

There is really no official list of Spiderweb RPs, and they are rather few and far between nowdays. The last successful one was Valley of Thunder, which may or may not have been included in the board purge.

Here is Valley of Thunder, and you'll find a couple others within General.

There are several other roleplays I remember:

The Spatula of Arthritis RP

Crystals Souls RP (Character Descriptions)

Also, several roleplays were archived and then deleted from the boards. Of these, only one has been restored online so far (YES, stop peskering me, I'll get on with the PPP when I have time).

The Legendary Avernum RP, of the golden age of Spiderweb Roleplaying.

Also, there are some that are also pretty well:

- Baltazar the Mad RP (archived, but not restored to an online site), by Nazgul
- The Tavern Front RP, by Tommy, same.

Some unfinished/cancelled attempts:

- The Lawlessness of Tumbleweed RP
- The Prohibition RP
- To Slay a Dragon
- Gethein Deludere
- The Fall of the Star Clan
- Shattered Alliance
- The Greywraith Clan

And some that are too horrible to look upon, but make for interesting reading all the same.

- The Sands of Time (Motrax) - I think I have this, but not sure.
- Around the Place in However Long it Takes (ADoS) - Around the Human Body in however long it takes (ADoS)
- Around the Universe in However Long it Takes (ADoS)
- The New Silvar Inn (several incarnations of that)
- Zombie Attack!!! (two incarnations I think).

And lastly, the legendarily First Successful Roleplay of Misc that is lost to us now.

- Join Us! Everyone Needed and Welcome! (Mung)

Don't forget my first RP, "Around the world in however long it takes!"
It may be interesting to note, however, that I've never read "Around The World in 80 Days", nor have I seen any movies based on it.

Never heard of MODWARS, sorry. Also, ADoS, I was under the impression that "Around the Place/Block in however long it takes" (you renamed it later, afaik), was your first one. But now that I think about it, I remember you said "*This time*, we're only going around the block", which implies you had something similar going on before.

However, I haven't saved that. I guess it was in Misc.

Psh. Too horrible to look upon? What it lacked in literary genius it made up for in controlled insanity and a whole lot of fun.

From what I've heard, the Golden Age of Spiderweb RPing had come and gone by the time I got here... Avernum was certainly a great RP, though. Too bad we couldn't keep that spirit going afterwards...

EDIT: Where did Misc go?

Sorry, I threw in good insanity together with bad insanity (Zombie Attack). An embarassing faux-pas for anyone who would claim to be experienced on Spiderweb.

Mod Wars were archived on TM's page, but ezboard crash ate them. So unless TM has a copy saved somewhere else, they are gone. (It was a series of Star Wars themed stories with iconboard mods (and prominent members) as characters.)

It turns out TM does have News in Exile archived: http://www.geocities.com/terrorsmartyr/Stories/

Pitiful. And I mean the try as well as the board.

Alas, the true Misc is done away with, and newbies are dancing on its grave variously by deriding it and by claiming its heritage for their own board.Ø

Desperance has claimed to have Misc, as has Polaris. Both were worthier attempts, and neither were particularly worthy. Calling boards Miscellaneous doesn't make the Miscellaneous. They often lack Alcritas.

—Alorael, who would rather have Misc live on forever as a memory that he can use to claim total superiority to all newcomers. Nothing wrong with superiority, is there?

The Spiderprise is identical with "Around the Universe in however long it takes", I think... and I listed the "Join us!" one.

When did Modwars and Mod Survivor take place, though? I think I missed those.

Bah, Misc was a pale, feeble thing in comparison with the glorious communion of souls we true oldbies enjoyed back in '34, when we exchanged notes scribbled on ration cards via carrier pigeon, crafted dramas that made Shakespeare look childish, and discovered DNA by pure thought long before Watson and Crick. Then noobies came and danced on our grave. :rolleyes:

Being that I joined after Miscellaneous was closed, I think you might find I was using almost as much sarcasm as you. :P

Congratulations, Student of Trinity! Its now becoming a less-elite club by the truckload.

EDIT: There have only been a couple of sucessful RP's since I've been around. Spatula of Arthritus, The Empire Always Loses, and there was one that Mung started. They are all I can remember.

I can't imagine why my RP was considered good... or completed, for that matter. It never finished.

By some twisted state of mind I became a kind of control freak in the RP, something I apologize for. Alec's meddling didn't help either.

At any rate, if another RP were to start up, I would have second thoughts about joining it. I didn't fair well in my absence from the site. I think I've burned out in the writing department. Besides, I already screwed up enough RPs. I don't need to leave a lesion on another one.

Oh. Well, then, I guess I was just crowing for my change of title.

Hooray. I can't believe how much effort that took, posting and posting and posting ... man, it seemed like hundreds of them.

Well, as they say, practice is everything. I wouldn't give up writing just yet. You might enjoy the next RP... ;)

Nah, those were not very successful really. You need to get to at least 10 pages.
