Though I'm not such a newbie in the RP scene, I've never done an RP with more than one person. One[x]One RPs make up my little life here on Iwaku. However, now I'm looking to branch out, and one of my new ideas involves a decent size group to work with. My question is how to work with a group, both as a GM and a character in such an RP. Of all the things I want to know, the following are the most important to me: - How do you time posts between people? Like, one of my bigger pet peeves is being interrupted (another reason why I've avoided group rps), so what do you do if two sets of two characters are talking in the same thread? Is there some method of organization? - While on the topic, how does one manage a group of characters that split into smaller groups? I suppose the answer is pretty obvious, but I like hearing the advice of others. - GM tips? Just in general, really. :P - When should I, as a character, enter into conversation/action with other characters? I hate interrupting just as much as I hate being interrupted, so I'm always super shy until I'm mentioned or invited into the conversation. If I have a relevant reason to break into a conversation or fight, how do I do that...correctly? I guess any other tips are welcome, but I care about the 4 points above more than any general tips and tricks.
