The RPC, or role-playing chat, is a collection of fictitious
stories about the Mario universe. Each member of the chat room plays as
a character from a Mario game (or a Neglected Character), and acts as
that character in the storyline.
History of RPC
RPC was part of the origianal SMBhq Chat Room back in 1998. The
original premise involved an ongoing story that was added to during
each session. However, the original RPC only lasted for about 2
weeks with the story never finishing.
No Flooding (posting many lines in a a very short period)
No Spamming (advertising)
No Flaming (arguements)
No pretending to be a SMBhq Staff member
RPC sessions will announced on the SMBHQ main page. A minimum of 3
people must show up for the RPC session to happen
At the start of the session, everyone who wants to
should tell the Narrator/Moderator that they want to participate.
The character they are playing as can be either a Mario or NC character.
Before the RPC starts, all participates should change their
name (using the /nick command) to the name of the character they are
playing as. If the name is registered, append your name to it (eg
No late joiners (it could cause the stories to get out of control)
Try to advance the story, not hinder it
Please stay in character. Don't revert to being yourself until afterward. If you do have to speak as yourself (speak in brackets).
Listen to the Narrator/Moderator. He will cue up the various Mario characters with his narration.
Keep up with what's happening while you type. Make sure you
don't type somethnig that contradicts with another statement. Advance
If you aren't participating, keep silent (You won't have voice powers, so it wouldn't matter).
The same goes to participants, who haven't been cued in the narration.
When the Narrator/Moderator says the RPC is over for the day(after an hour). It's over!
The RPC session might go overtime, if the narrator cannot finish up the story by the completion of the hour.
DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT add your own plot twists or endings. Only the Narrator/Moderator can do that.
Breaking the rules can result in being banned.
It is recommended that you should not enter if you are under 13.
