    Default ACRONYM OOC 3: Freeform Forever!

    Thread for OOC stuff related to the ACRONYM organizations - AMEN, GLoG, HALO, NO, PEACE etc.

    If you're curious, ACRONYM stands for Associated Crazy and Redundant Organizations Needlessly Yearning Meaning. It's hard to define exactly what makes an ACRONYM, but they all share the following characteristics.

    It's hard to define exactly what makes an ACRONYM, but they all share the following characteristics:
    Spoiler
    Show
    1. Their name is an acronym.
    2. They tend to revolve around some sort of common trait shared by most of their members - in most cases, this is alignment, but we've had at least one organization that allowed only female characters.
    3. They are roleplaying games, obviously.
    4. They have one thread which is their "main" or "HQ" thread, which are usually numbered in Roman numerals and has a different, witty title for each new thread, and occasionally have spin-off threads for plots that take place outside of the base.
    5. All the ACRONYMs exist in a sort of shared multiverse.

    A few of the ACRONYMs include:
    Spoiler
    Show
    • AMEN - The Association of Malicious, Evil, and Nefarious. The original ACRONYM group, and the longest running (if not the one with the most threads). Wacky, crazy, and often needlessly violent. Enter at your own risk.
    • HALO - The Heroic, Anti-Evil and Lawbreaking Organization. The first good-centered ACRONYM which survived more than a few threads. Currently holds the record for most threads. Formerly arch-enemies of AMEN.
    • GLoG - The Good League of Good. Their name comes from The Evil League of Evil, from Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog. The second good-centered organization to survive. Why two good organizations? There are distinct roleplaying differences between the two. If you want to join a good organization, I'd recommend trying out both and seeing which fits your likes better.
    • NO - The Neutralist Organization. Where gray is the new black. Very neutral.
    • PEACE - A semi-serious roleplaying organisation for evildoers, where plot is tolerated, and stamped on less than in AMEN.

    Don't like any of the choices? Want to make your own? Read these rules first.
    Spoiler
    Show
    1. Acronym organizations are NOT Cliques, Clubs, or FanGroups. They are Role-Playing Games. Please start one only if you and a certain group of people have intent of following it through. If it's for the sake of having something in your sig, make up a club, gather friends, and sig it.
    2. Acronym Organizations should be open. As per forum rules, nobody is to be denied admittance into our circle. Note: this is referring to players, not characters, it's perfectly reasonable to not allow evil characters in your good organization (unless they want to become good, but that's besides the point) but you can't not allow a player to join.
    3. If Rule 1 is met by your intentions, please make sure none of the existing organizations fit your Role-Playing Necessities. Organizations based around the same thing should be significantly different in style, i.e. HALO and GLoG.
    4. If a plot within an existent organization requires the creation of a new organization, remember that it is not necessary to create the organization OOC. Organizations can be created fully IC within the bounds of another organization, for example, AMEN's TESTAMENT.
    5. It's not Personal, it's ACRONYM. As much as our characters may fight each other, remember we're all friends here and just want to have fun with each other.

    ACRONYM Shack: You've got questions, we've got answers.
    Spoiler
    Show
    Q: Hey, why isn't my organization on the big shiny list?
    A: Probably because it hasn't gotten to two threads yet. We love new ACRONYMs, we really do, but frankly, if it can't survive for two threads, it doesn't get to go in the big shiny index.

    Well, since that's done, my new character is in the Taverna right now.

    Figured I should say so since the forums went crazy shortly after his entrance.

    From Taverna With Love is over. What did you all think? What was good? What could use improving? And most importantly, would you like to do another non-canon plot o' fun? Magtok and I have been tossing around a few ideas, but suggestions are welcome.

    What? Awww... why not? Death is such a good device.

    Even I have plans on how one of my characters is going to kill another. (Said character(s) may or may not have been introduced yet)

    *throws anti-plot building on Elrond* Moving along, I think I'll have Forest of Grimm up by tomorrow. The Town will probably be too caught up with their own plots to enter the forest, however.

    If anyone throws a random NPC into the forest, I'll take my right as thread owner, and kill them in one post via godmodding. If the NPC is with the same players PC, then I don't mind whatsoever.

    If anyone disagrees with this, I don't care. Why should I? It's a NPC, and they've wandered into a red-shirts worst nightmare.

    If you wanted plot, you silly thing, you should have joined PEACE.
    AMEN is anti-plot...

    I was on Giantitp at roughly 8pm, local time yesterday, left to watch two episodes of BSG Season 4.0 on my shiny new DVD (damn networks don't even air it here anymore. ), came back around 10-ish, found the site down, waited around an hour, site was still down, went to bed, woke up at 7-ish, and guess what, site was still down. It's about 11am here, and the site just got back up. This worries me immensely.

    Heh, that was the week I went to Summer Camp. I left and the forums were down, came back home, logged in, and stared at the computer screen wondering if it really was down the whole time I was gone.

    Hopefully you mean with other people, and not just with your characters. I'm guessing the former.

    And if this forum shutdown persists, I'm not going to finish writing the forest, or Jacks bio.

    Until then, here's a random video.
