Well each post has to be a full paragraph at the very least of not all dialouge then people have life and live in different time zones. So it difficult to be fully committed to something like that and post everyday. I like that because it improves the writing skill and help you learn how to get your character feeling through without just saying it.
When Smilie RPG were allowed in the game section I joined them to get away from the contants seriously writing RPG to join something quick that didn't need much details. That was fine too but it was often difficult to keep up and things mysteriously happened to my characters when I returned. Like when I came back Lucian was getting married. But like you said it was still fun, too bad it isn't allowed anymore.
I'm playing some other people RPG and I getting down details for my own RPG. Pokemon Power Legends II was the first RPG I've ever been the Game Master of and I will admit I was overwhelmed. And then I got busy... I'm going to try another one with maybe not so many people if possible to get used to it.
