Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

What the fuck is this?
Glossolalia, the SE++ forum RPG series started up by DE?AD two years ago.

Oh this is that one roleplaying thread that I never click...
That's right! Hopefully this should clear things up for you!

So what exactly is this all about?
It's a play-by-post RPG that has a tendency to get fairly silly, run by our modest GMs DE?AD and Dubh. We've gone through a number of games already: from Glossolalia 4++ (which covered a scat-filled medieval setting to one filled with space-faring cats), to RADlands (Post-Apocalyptic), to the two newest games, Deucarta (Science-based medieval) and Royal Blue (Wacky narrative-based world where any and all things exist).

Alright, can I make a character to kick sand in your character's face?
Sure! Currently we have two games running: Deucarta (run by Dubh) and Royal Blue (DE?AD). The former has already reached the player cap, but the latter isn't starting until 22 Nov so feel free to make your interest known in the thread and we'll help you out!

So how do I make a character?
We play using DE?AD's homemade 100% system, a free-form set of guidelines that whittle your character sheet into two neat lines of text. All rolls are done with a d100, but here's the kicker: the GMs are kind enough to take all the logistics on their side! That means 0% number crunching and power-gamey bullshit, 100% narrative gameplay.

The link to the rules is at the top of the thread, and the GMs and other players will surely help you make your character!

Click HERE for the rules on how to make your character!


Alright, so which game should I play?
Pretty much just Royal Blue, read about it below:

Deucarta

Magic is science. Golems are robots. Spirit philosophers roam the land. Psychics and Wizards battle over ancient artifacts that defy all natural law and reason. This is Deucarta.
Pack your bags and don't forget your sword, 'cause there will be Hell to pay before this journey is over and you don't got the time to stop for lunch.



Choose your adventure! (During play, include the two code words with your stat line!)
[Antheus][Hikkery]
Characters: Marinus (AA), Rok (T4CT), Ess (Squall), Epictetus (Shock), Aaron (Stilts), Arthur (Dux), Y (DE?AD)

(Coded Message)
"Our time together in the League of Rovers was short, but was beneficial to us both. The ban on privateer organizations has hit our type hard, but I wish to continue to our services to the public underground, away from government scrutiny. With my connections and your skills, we could take advantage of this revolution and gain a great deal of wealth, or even favor from the winning side. These are uncertain times, and at the very least we can save a few lives while making a better living than working at the prisons or on riot control. Meet at the boathouse at the end of Omen street, near the ruined lighthouse. We can work out the details there."

-H



[Sevyn Turs][Dikkery]
Characters: Garent (Cyense), Desmond (Tommy), West (Shabooty), Aralia (Anti)

(Fliers sent to various wizard academies and mercenary companies)

Wanted!

EXPLORE untamed wilds!
DISCOVER ancient ruins and legendary artifacts!
MINGLE with barbarian warlords!
HUNT rare beasts!
BECOME part of the most important research EVER!

Research assistants needed to conduct retrieval and courier services for acclaimed royal researcher Armades Kinas, currently conducting research in Sevyn Turs, deep within the Dreamwilds. Rooms and supplies provided per diem, payment will be rendered after each job. Inquire at your local arcane college for more details and to schedule an interview. References required.



[The Mediran Plains][Dokk]
Characters: Gorlaf (Cheese), Castleguard (Rane), Furnace (Dichotomy), Carmine Beel (Valve), John (Speed), Baird (Captain K), Shu (Bahamut)

(Backroom of a closed ale house in the city-state of Etlin)

"All right you bastards, the gates of Etlin are closed up tighter than the princess's cunt with Jevin's army at the gate. The city can hold up for a few months, give or take, before supplies are out. After that? We're crushed under the boot heels of those slavering rock gnawers. The council doesn't have a lot of options, and that's were I come in- recruiting you would-be mercenaries to bust out and find a way to end this siege. The other city states aren't keen on getting involved, and that has to change for Etlin to have a chance at living through this. I'm not promising a great deal of wealth, here, but I can guarantee a shit load of action, fame, and- if everything turns out lucky- the gratitude of goddamn civilization. Can you pussies take the blood oath and fight this out to the end? If you can't, turn your ass around, march out that door and get your pale white ass out of my sight."

The Code of the Royal Blue
An Agent must be an upstanding citizen and an exemplary person of impeachable moral fiber.
An Agent sacrifices himself to protect others. To do less is grounds for removal.
An Agent suffers no weakness of character that would render him a danger to others.
An Agent wears his badge proudly, and openly. His uniform is the colour of the Shield.
An Agent upholds Compassion, Peace, and Freedom, but above all Justice.
An Agent is before all things is an Agent.

    From what DE?AD has told me Royal Blue actually sounds pretty cool

    Perhaps even cool enough that I might try playing

    Of course the fact that I use the computer for maybe an hour a day tops right now kind of dampens that plan

    The breakdown so far is this:

    Antheus = Marinus, Rok, Ess, Epicetus, Aaron
    Sevyn Turs = Garent, Desmond, West, Aralia
    Mediran Plains = Gorlaf, Castleguard

    That leaves Arthur and Castleguard.

    already said Castleguard is probably headed to Mediran Plains

    (and I thought cheese's character was Big, but apparently that wasn't a real character?)

    and: holy shit Gorlaf and castleguard are basically perfect teammates

    I didn't add you because I was lazy and only checked three pages back.

    And I think he just changed his mind on Big. Dubh, as he's want to do, scared him away from trying a Husk.

    Everyone who wishes to is welcome to join Royal Blue. I'll do a big introduction/world-info post at some point during the weekend or on Monday. Until then, Stilts should be able to fill you in with posts I've made on the topic previously.

    Also, someone get a hold of Muse, I believe she wished to be notified when Royal Blue started up.

    That's it. No third thing (in other words, no more Trait Class bonus for being a certain race).

    that was the Freaker's "racial"

    every other race got a bonus trait class

    and since those are being taken out I assumed that was too
