An Idea
Click to go to bottom
So, I've been thinking about an idea relating to RP that could involve multiple people without getting too crowded, though it is still in the drawing board phase, and I would like your opinions. This idea has to do with a character. This character would be influenced by you. An... audience surrogate of sorts. A poll would pop up during certain situations, where you would be able to vote on the character's dialogue choices and/or actions, like what to do during combat, or choices that can change the course of the story. For future reference, what kind of complications would come up potentially impeding the progress of this idea, and has this kind of thing been done before? Thank you in advance, - Rom
I'm not into RPing at all but this sounds very cool. An issue would be that you would have to prepare all of the different scenarios. At least, that's what I think.

That is true, it would take quite a bit of time to plan out, but that's kind of a given, and if not an RP, then it could be a "Choose your own adventure" sort of thing with a preset story and only control that character, with a couple of DnD elements for combat choices and outcomes.
Yeah, that's gonna be tough. Either way, looking forward to what you come with.
The biggest issue is usually deciding when to close voting and how much freedom you want to give people with write-ins. If you're looking to run a quest/CYOA yourself and want some ideas, there are plenty of examples here (good, bad, and stupid) http://boards.4chan.org/qst/

If you're looking to run a quest/CYOA yourself and want some ideas, there are plenty of examples here (good, bad, and stupid) http://boards.4chan.org/qst/ I see... I'll look into that. As for the voting, that's one thing I'm confused about, whether there would be pre-written options, or users can write their own choices which can be entered into a poll, and people vote on what to do (maybe except for certain situations where there would be pre-written options, such as a combat menu.) So it's pretty much twitch plays Pokemon, RP edition? To a certain extent, yes, just with a bit less direct control over the character's movements... and minus the fossil worship.

Bumperino A few things I forgot to ask: 1. When it comes to the quest itself, should it have its own separate world and story, or would it be plausible for the player character to appear in an RP here? 2. What poll website would be compatible with this site? Would Strawpoll work fine?

But the fossil worship is the best part Honestly, I think the player character could be in a random RP.
You don't really need to use a poll site, if people just post their answers in the thread it encourages more activity
It's Keebo and Danganronpa V3s ending all over again. Audience Surrogate, are we even in reality. Ignore this if you haven't played DRV3 till the end. Either https://poal.me/ , http://www.strawpoll.me/ , actually strawpoll sounds like hte best choice for that.

Bump You don't really need to use a poll site, if people just post their answers in the thread it encourages more activity In that case, how should it be decided? Should there be a limited time to answer, and afterward, their answers would be entered into a poll? Besides, there will be a few moments where a pre-written poll would be required, such as a battle menu during the normal phases in a turn-based RPG.
