DCW IRL General Info and FAQ
IdentityUnknown posted a topic in ChatroomWelcome to the general info thread of DCW IRL! This is where you should go for the general information on DCW IRL. First off, DCW IRL is a form of roleplay, with each member involved playing themselves. A DCW IRL moderator is assigned to keep things in check and keep the story going. The thread starts off with a scenario proposed by the moderator. Then, a member posts a bio for themselves before continuing the story. The first DCW IRL thread can be found http://www.detectiveconanworld.com/forum/topic/1689-dcwirl/'>here. Rules for DCW IRL (are subject to change): DCW IRL Mission Statement: To provide a setting where DCWers interested in roleplay may freely participate in a high-quality roleplay environment; to provide a roleplay environment which veterans can enjoy, yet inclusive so newbies can participate; to give DCWers a place to express their inner creativity, or just release steam. About DCW IRL: So You Want to Roleplay: The Moderators: So You Want to be a Round Moderator: Last updated September 16th, 2013. FAQ What should I put in a bio? In fact, what is a bio? What's involved in a post? How much should I post? Why is there an imposed time limit? What happens if I'm inactive? What's an NPC? What can I do with him/her/it? If you have any other questions, you can post them below or PM IdentityUnknown about them. Stay on topic in this thread. Discussion must be limited to relevant discussion.
DCW IRL Moderator Signup Thread
IdentityUnknown posted a topic in ChatroomCurrent Round(s): Currently no rounds in progression. Claims for the next DCW IRL rounds Round 12 - ??? Round 13 - COULD BE YOU!!! Italics - tentative Backup Moderator List - IdentityUnknown - Misaki-chan Requirements to be a DCW IRL moderator - You must be able to keep track of the storyline and keep the plot moving in some way, maybe by posting an event every two or three days. - You must have good grammar and spelling. Note: this does not mean flawless, but your English grammar and spelling should be sufficient enough to be understood by others. - You must be experienced. You must have actively participated in at least two DCW IRL rounds (or the first DCW IRL round). To be deemed an active participant, you must've contributed to the thread at least once every two days. You must also have actively participated in at least one DCW IRL round in the last 60 days. The exception is listed below. - If you have obtained special permission from IdentityUnknown or Mohorovicic, you do not need to have participated in two DCW IRL rounds. This special permission lasts for only one round. Finally, a moderator should be responsible. They need to be able to know when they cannot manage a thread so it can be handed off to someone else. What exactly does a moderator do? A DCW IRL moderator is also responsible for notifying the members the day before the time limit ends as well as posting on the thread if the writers have not posted for 5 consecutive days to give them a chance to continue. The mod may also post something in closing after the time limit and plot resolving period have ended. After 5 consecutive days without posting, the mod may feel free to end the thread in any way they choose to. Inactivity - If a moderator fails to post an event for a period of three days without properly passing off their position or notifying others, they will be kicked and the game temporarily suspended until a capable moderator is found. If no such moderator is found, the game will be discontinued. - A moderator may choose to pass off their position to another moderator. The same rules apply to them and they must pass the requirements to be a DCW IRL moderator. Backup Moderators - Backup moderators can be consultants and can take over an RP should the original mod not be able to come on or should they feel the need to relinquish their position. Those who are available as backup mods are listed above. Moderators may choose from the list or they may ask to choose an unlisted member as a backup mod. This member must meet the requirements as a moderator. - If a member wishes to be a backup mod, they may PM IdentityUnknown. If they wish to remove their name from the list, they should also PM IdentityUnknown. Backup mods who have not participated in a DCW IRL round recently will have their name removed. Moderating Tips To sign up to be a DCW IRL moderator, simply PM IdentityUnknown. Moderating positions are handed out on a first come first serve basis if you meet the requirements. Please do not request two rounds at the same time. If a mod drops the thread by either not posting an event for 4 consecutive days or by handing off, the next moderator can take over or the thread can be taken over by another member. If the mod reappears within three days after handing off or not posting and requests their position back, it will be returned. After that period of time, the thread will officially be taken over by the new mod. Do not reply to this this thread. Questions may be directed through the General info area or by PMing IdentityUnknown.
DCW IRL Round 11: Walpurgisnacht
tengaku squared posted a topic in ChatroomSetting: Background Information: Characters: Rules: > Pretty much standard DCW IRL rules. There is one exception: > I will be checking for inactivity every 2 days. This does not mean that you will be kicked for being inactive for 2 days. That just means I will note if you happen to be inactive. If the inactivity becomes excessive, I will kick you. But in general, I'll be a bit more lenient with inactivity. What's Happening This Round: There are a few things in the works for DCW IRL, including something I hope gets here before this round begins, but something else that's on my mind is personal NPCs. We haven't seen them around recently, and I want to test them out in this round. I'm going to be quite lax in regards to moderation this round. I gave you guys the setting, now I want to see what you can do with it in 1 month. There won't be any other gimmicks this round, so people that didn't like my previous round can come back and sign up. Please? How to Signup: Signups will now be accepted until October 20, 2013, 12:00 A.M Mountain Time. NO MORE SIGNUPS ARE BEING TAKEN. Signups will be decided through lottery. By random, I will pick a group of people that sign-up through PM or comment on my profile as participants. Everyone has equal chances, regardless of previous experience, skill, or my personal preference. The only thing that will influence your chances is signing up early. That will set your chances at -1. I request standard stuff, like a generic profile, with your sign-up, but it's not necessary for sign-ups. Though, if you plan to do so, please don't signup through comment. And before you ask, yes, I will be using random.org.
DCW IRL Special Anniversary Round: Summer Storm
IdentityUnknown posted a topic in ChatroomLocation: The Airport You grip the handrests excitedly. You can't believe that you're finally going to meet everyone you knew online! My, it's been so long since you first entered the Detective Conan World chatroom and you're actually surprised to find yourself touching down already. You weren't planning on taking such a drastic step to meeting all of your online friends and now that you're here, you feel an odd mixture of worry, excitement, and apprehension. Still, the excitement seems to bubble to the top. You wonder briefly how everyone looks like. This trip was arranged by IdentityUnknown last month. She has sent you all tickets and arranged to meet all of you at the Seattle airport. You've all been flown in from around the world (you wondered briefly how she could afford all of it, but you figure she has her ways). The seat belt sign turns on and you feel a drop in your stomach. Staring outside the window, you watch as the plane descends through the thick fluffy layer of clouds. The ground grows closer and there's a gentle jolt as the plane's wheels hit the ground. You bounce a little bit and after a few minutes, the plane slows to a stop. Ten minutes later, you walk out into the airport, pick up your baggage, and head out to the arrival terminal. A girl holding a sign saying "DCW Forum" leans against a pillar with a black suitcase. A few of the others are already there. Most of the others are talking, but a few are sitting to the side, playing on their iPods or typing on their computers. You go ahead and join them, introducing yourself to several of them. People mill around, a few joining you near the pillar. "Hi," the girl with the sign says. Her smile is easy, but a little bit cautious. "I'm IdentityUnknown, the organizer of this little trip." She offers a hand, which you take. "You can call me Jay. Most of us are here already." She nods towards some of the other people there. "That's Mark, though since he's reading the paper, I wouldn't interrupt him. Mohorovicic, that's his DCW name. Elizabeth, or Elli, or L--she goes by a lot of names--is the girl with the purple hair and combat boots. She's Sparrow. Oh, and that short girl is KKLT, also known as Amber. Just introduce yourself to the people around and you'll be fine." To your disappointment, they all seem a little preoccupied, but well, there's other people, right? You smile at Jay and decide to take her advice. Whatever comes next, you're ready to bring it on. ~~~ Moderators IdentityUnknown Kaitou Kid Legendary Thief Mohorovicic Sparrow ~~~ Players n00btube Misaki-chan Heksu MeitanteiSnow Usui-kun AiSuigetsu PhiBrainChild Ren-kun Nur Lovestruck ~~~ Suspects Jay ~~~ This is a SPECIAL round. There is no limit to the number of players (though signup will end when the roleplayers leave the airport). To sign up, simply post your character's bio below and continue on with the story situation. This round begins immediately with the first poster. You should make that character as close as possible to yourself. There will be no weapons, no superpowers, and no special abilities in this round. What you have is limited to what your mind can conceive. The Suspects bio section will be constantly updated as new suspects and information emerge. Your bios will also be on this post. There is no time limit to this round. The round ends at the conclusion of the mystery. Bio: Name: Age: Description: Personality: There will be four moderators for this round. They will control all NPCs (including all NPC dialogue) and will adjust the situation according to their needs. At every new location, one of the moderators will describe who is present, what the scene is like, anything out of the ordinary. NPCs will be given a description, but no background or detailed information. It's up to you to talk to them and figure out anything they know. The mods will be in charge of location changes and time changes. This will be a serial killing murder mystery. Clues will be given to you through descriptions of the scene, NPC interactions, questioning of the suspects, and discussion with the mods. Mods will have a limited amount of information to give you. Questioning of the suspects may be done through the mod who controls the suspect, though you will most likely not receive any information. Most questioning will be done in the RP itself and will be public information. Any questions should be directed at me. The first four people who have been automatically signed up are your mods for this round. 1. IdentityUnknown 2. Mohorovicic 3. KKLT 4. Sparrow 5. n00btube 6. Misaki-chan 7. Heksu 8. MeitanteiSnow 9. Usui-kun 10. AiSuigetsu 11. PhiBrainChild 12. Ren-kun 13. Hikari-chan 14. Lovestruck
DCW IRL Round 9: The Chairman
tengaku squared posted a topic in Chatroom==============Plot============== Another ordinary day at school. Class is about to begin. You set down your books, and get ready for another boring day. Little do you realize that you will soon wish for another boring day instead... Near the end of class, the doors suddenly slam shut and lock, and all the windows close. All of your classmates look around in confusion. A few of them try to open the doors and the windows, but fail. Panic sets upon all of you. What in the world is going on? A deep voice emanates from the wall. “Hello, everyone. No, escape is useless,” the voice boomed as a few students attempted to break the windows or tear down the doors. “You cannot escape from this classroom, which will now become your prison. Unless, you win my game.” Nervous chatter sets upon yourselves. One student proclaims, “F**k you, man!” What happened next typically only happens in horror movies: the student exploded, leaving his remains all over the classroom. “The game has already begun." “Fine, we’ll play your game. What are your rules?” The voice chuckled, amused at this question. “There are rules...but I cannot tell them to you. Good luck to all of you.” No rules? A game for your lives has begun... ==========How to signup========== Signups shall start at June 8, 2013, 12:00 A.M MDT. I expect they'll end around June 15, 2013, 12:00 A.M MDT, though that is tenative. To signup, either comment on my profile or PM me. Due to the way comments work now, your comment must be an individual comment. (This means I will not take comments from other comments, ex. replying to another player's signup saying "I want to signup too!") Signup positions are first-come, first-serve. No application necessary. As always, a character post is required, though. Make that your first post, if possible. This is a warning: this round will be frustrating to the extreme. Come prepared. Or if you're crazy, you can sign up anyway. I don't mind. (EDIT: Well, I terminated sign-ups a bit early, but you can sign up by simply posting in this topic now. Up to a certain time, at least.) =============Rules============= Standard roleplay rules apply. There are also special rules, but I am not allowed to tell them to you. ===========Participants=========== 1) Anime Girl 4 Eva 2) Alcadeias 3) Misaki-chan 4) Kaitou Kid Legendary Thief 5) Metantei Kiddo 6) Lovestruck (All participants should put their character bio into their first post.)
