    Welcome to the RPG's

    If you're interested in joining the Hype RPG games, or even creating your own, this thread is for you.


    This first post will list all currently running games with a brief description of each.

    The second post explains how you can apply to make your own game.

    The third post provides a nice rundown of rules and links to helpful pages our RPG community has created.

    Creating a game


    Currently, we're only accepting short term games that will last only a single season over a period of a few weeks to a few months. If your game is successful, you can apply for another season. And, if the premise of the game fits, we'll consider putting it on the long term game list where no further applications are needed for each season.


    Create a new thread for your game in the Hype RPG Games Approval Forum with the following RPG Application

    Name of the new RPG: T

    Screenname of the Proposed RPG’s Game Master:


    Do You Have An Instant Messenger that we can reach you on for better conversation? (i.e MSN, Yahoo, AIM, ect.) And if so, what is your screenname?:

    Gamemasters/Assistant Gamemasters already chosen:

    How will the overall layout of the RPG be?:

    Premise of RPG, if it is a user created RPG see below for applicable additions to this Applicaton, (Must be a paragraph or longer).
    H
    What will this RPG bring to the RPG forums? (please write two complete sentences):

    Title Of The RPG You Would Like To Propose:

    Example Of Characters Application:


    Additional items needed if applicable to type of game

    Classes within RPG (if applicable):

    Character Races within RPG (if Applicable):

    Power layout of the game (powers for classes, races, age, height, etc):



    Once you have at least 8 interested players, your game will be added to our monthly vote on which short term game will be the next to be accepted. Y
