Roast 3: The Roast Strikes Back?

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Brovo, Dec 20, 2014.

  1. As with previous roasts. New Roast SUNDAY 21st. Starting at 11:00 AM Mountain Time. (1:00 PM Eastern Standard Time, 10:00 AM Pacific Standard Time. 6:00 PM UK Time.) If you want to be there, mention it over Skype, leave a message in the thread here and add me on Skype (brovo196), or send me a PM with your Skype so I can add you.

    As always, all for good fun, hope to see y'all there!

    Roast Info (open)
    For those who aren't aware of what a roast is yet: A roast is when I and a bunch of others get together on Skype, read some role plays, and dissect their plots and characters for the purpose of entertainment and learning. People can suggest RP's to be roasted, and so on. There's a few hard rules, such as never making personal attacks against other people, never publicly criticizing the role plays (especially in the OOC's of said role plays), et cetera. Basically: While satire, sarcasm, and dry wit, are fully acceptable, personal attacks and the like are not.

    A couple of additional rules have been added, specifically to address a couple of issues I saw with the previous one.

    #1: No matter how humorous it might be, do not harass members of the site no matter how inflammatory their content might be. If you find it really concerning and think it breaks the rules of the site, report it, don't harass the member in question. Let the staff do their jobs. I've been fairly lenient on this because it hasn't resulted in any really negative reactions so far, but I can't keep being lenient because publicly gathering to read role plays for comedy and education shouldn't end with public shaming. That's disgraceful and I'm ending that. If you get caught doing this repeatedly, you'll be permanently barred from the roasts.

    Now if you get curious about an RP or a character and want to talk to an author about it, that's fine. Just no harassment. Anyone who feels like they have been harassed, feel free to send me a PM. I'll deal with it personally and anonymously for you should that be a problem, though I would like to add one positive note, that it hasn't been a problem yet. Which is pretty good for mass gatherings of people, but we've had a close call or two, so I'm putting this rule down preemptively for everyone's sake. I cannot stress this enough: No public shaming.

    #2: If you're in the Skype call, keep in mind your environment. If you're surrounded by noisy objects, please mute your microphone. The text chat is still available for you to use and you won't deafen everyone with headsets (such as myself). This is more of a courtesy thing than a hard rule.

    That aside, I would like to note with pride that the roasts have not only been greatly entertaining (CHARMANDER!) but that the vast majority of the time, everyone new and old has been doing exceptionally well treating role plays and role players with respect and kindness, and apparently a lot of people have been learning all sorts of stuff from the roasts. So congratulations everyone in the past couple of roasts, pat yourselves on the back, you've been doing good work being decent human beings.

    Now, shall we get started, and find out who can climb the criminal ladder like a person who's really good at climbing ladders?


    Oh, and to quickly clear this up: Yes, you can invite your friends, you don't need my permission to invite others into the Skype call. A couple people asked me this so may as well clear it up here.

  2. I will definitely join but not for long...or else I just oversleep again :P
  3. As always, I shall be there *bows at the waist*

    So prepare thyself.
  4. I will not be gracing you all with my voice this time. I'm sorry. Have fun!
  5. I can actually make this one! 8D But I can't stay for 8 hours. O___O
  6. Hey man, the roast calls have people come and go, you've seen it. :p
    And as always, thy presence is most welcome upon these hallowed halls of Skype™ powered by Microsoft™
    Aye, family festivities for you! Let not I keep thee!
    Excellent! You needn't stay for eight hours though. :rotfl:
  7. I'll be there :D For hours and hours and hours! At least three. Then we'll see what happens after my parents goes to bed. Depends on if I feel like sitting outside in the cold for 3 hours again or not xD

    What? What? What? But... You and Brittish guy has the best voices :o YOU HAVE TO BE THERE!!! *Disappointed Swede sits in a corner and mopes*
  8. Oh. Well then. This changes things. I don't think I'll be--
    Never mind. We good.

    Brovo, you have my audience.
  9. will try to make

    btw, i have no idea how to mute a laptop mike because its an internal device

    i do not know if simply hitting mute on my volume would do it


  10. I would, but tomorrow is my daughter's 10th birthday.
  11. daawwwww
  12. You have my axe.
  13. When you're in the call, there should be a little, round mic button where all the pictures are. Click it so that it has a line struck through it. Voila, you can hear everyone and nobody can hear you.
  14. Let's see if this breaks last week's time.
  15. You fuckin' ninja'd me here.

    And my bow.

    And my Jaegerbombs.
  16. Do we get to hear the grunt laugh again?

  17. Heh heh heh.
  18. In related news, I have perfected the voice of "The Boulder," from The Last Airbender.
  19. Everyone should sign a contract with blood saying,

    "I won't get butthurt. I'll have thick skin. I'm not fucking perfect. Please pound my... RP into the ground."

    :D ;)
  20. Can I substitute "RP" for something else since I don't have any to be roasted? Like maybe "Please pound my ass character in the the ground." Would that work?
