Solved How to start up the Roleplay game

Post by Mr. Eddster on December 18th 2011, 5:31 am

Hey guys, I've been having trouble with starting up a Roleplay game. I hear it's fun, and I want to add it to my forum. Could you tell me how to start it up? Like do I have to activate widgets or anything? Start from the beginning please! Any help is welcome!

When I try to create sheets it says "Could not generate the character sheet of this member, there is no field in this forum." how do I fix this?

You have to create a character sheet first (I'm good with RPG stuff).

Ok. But do you have to activate widgets, or make a new widget or anything?

No, just activate the character sheets. Make sure your admin panel is in advance mode then go to Modules>Role Play game section>Fields Management and create a field.

Ok. I did that. Now I've got Lines and column options. We have about 12 regular members that will be playing.

Did you generate the character sheets as well? Your members can generate them as well but you can do it for them if you want to.

That's pretty much it for the character sheets. Don't forget to experiment with different options.

Ok. But one more big thing here:
When I go to Modules-RPG-Field Management:
1. How many fields do I need, and what do they need to be named? Examples would be great!
2. I activate "Display the character sheets", and "Activate the roll of dices" right?

1. As many as want (remember that you can only show 3 on posts). They can be like "character name" "character age" etc.
2.Activate the "character sheets" and "roll of dices" is optional.

Alright, I'll keep it simple with no dice. Razz

Ok last few questions, then this one can be "solved"!

1. How many columns and rows should I have?
2. What's the point of the game? Like should I create a new forum for it? How do I start it up?

Ya sorry I'm still really confused! I don't get this at all. Tis is what I've done so far:
Activated display character sheet
Made a field called "Username", and I have no lines, but 2 columns called Player Age and Player Location.
Made the character sheets.

So what is this role play game? I heard a lot of users say its fun, but I don't know what to do! Shold the dices be activated, is it recommended?

1.As many as you think would suit you.
2.The Role Play game character sheet is (I think) for describing a character. I don't know much about what it's for. If you want to make a forum for it, go right on ahead. If someone makes an RGP, the character sheet could give an idea for a new character.
