    All righty! Here's the ad I had partially finished when I first drafted the college RP. I thought I'd include it to get us in the mindset of university life. :)

    My intention for the map is to update it as we go so we know who lives in which room, who is neighbors with whom, whether someone lives near the stairs or the common room, etc.

    The character profile sheet is just a suggestion - slightly tweaked from your run-of-the-mill "name, age, gender, personality, appearance, bio" profile. I never remember the information people write in the generic profiles, so I created this one to hopefully get a better feel for the character's personality. We can use this to map out our characters or we can bypass it completely and jump right in! Your call!

    Please let me know if I've left out something! Thanks!

  4. Hey Jozu, this looks great! I'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner - I saw it and thought I responded (but must have done so just in my head). I won't have much time for the rest of this week to really sit down to write, so would you mind if we started early next week? If that's too long and you think you might not be very interested, then maybe we can pick this up at a later time. Just wanted to give you a heads up on my activity level! Thanks!​
  5. No worries! I'm in it for the long haul now, so you can take as long as you'd like.
  6. Thanks! I just got my work schedule and it looks like I'm pretty booked until the end of next week. I check the site a couple times a day though so I'll definitely be in touch with any updates!
  7. Thanks so much for your patience! Today, I'll edit the floor map to show where everyone lives. Then... I suppose we're ready to start? Did you want to put up some more character profiles first? It's totally cool if you don't want to, I just thought I'd ask! It's good to have some secondary characters handy sometimes, but for this type of lighthearted, easy-going rp they're pretty easy to add in when the time comes.

    Would you like to start us off or shall I? If you'd like me to begin, it just might be a few days. :/ The goal of course would be to get the post up within the next two days, but my schedule is all over the place. Having enough energy to compose a decent post has been hard to come by lately. Anyway, let me know what you think!
