I've had this one in mind since Kuwait, but I didn't know how to make it into a role play... until now. Earlier today during a boring ass commander's call, it hit me like a freight train and I immediately stopped listening to a word the major was saying and let my mind start rapidly connecting the dots. I want to do a hybrid. That's right, I said a hybrid. Part-single authored story, part-role play. The format would go as so... I open the IC with Chapter 1, which is nothing but me writing about two guys in the Air Force that have been deployed to a fictional air base in Kuwait. Chapter 2 is a compilation of posts between myself and you guys, narrating a story taking place back in the States at the same time that events in Chapter 1 are taking place. The story continues with that odd/even cycle. I'll write Chapter 3, which picks up on our boys doing their thing in the desert, and then we continue with the role play in Chapter 4. As things in the even-numbered chapters (the role play) begin to slow down or the scenes begin to change, I'll draw the curtain and post up the next odd-numbered chapter. Your characters can be related to one of the guys that are deployed, friends with them, or they may even have no clue who they are. But things that happen in odd chapters can affect even chapters, and things that happen in the even chapters can affect the odd chapters. So! Who's interested in helping me out with this unique idea? I want to make this the first... "Hybrid RP". P.S. You don't have to know anything about the military or any associated lingo. That's my job. So don't get scared about this being "realistic". If you have any questions, ask away!
