View Full Version : Quarantine

September 23rd, 2009, 02:12 PM
EDIT: Quarantine has been remade. It can be found here:

This really doesn't deserve a front page post, but it's the easiest way to get to everyone who may be interested. Those who aren't can go back to their shopping, there's discounted cheese in aisle 3.

Right, recently I've been getting a fair number of PMs regarding the reopening/restarting the Text RPG Quarantine, which can be seen here.

I was quite fond of it at the time and it had a lot of potential, but ultimately didn't work because of inconsistent players and a few design flaws which I hadn't properly sorted out. However in light of this new interest, I'm considering trying it out again, only the flaws being fixed this time and a more solid story to be followed. Only I don't want to start it up just to have it fall flat straight away.

So what I'd like to know is how many would be interested in taking an active role in the RPG if it's reopened? And if you are, how committed you would be able to remain to it in the early stages? If there are enough to my liking, then I will most likely start it up.

I'd love you to re open it again Tawl. Would we be starting again fresh or continueing with our previous characters?

September 23rd, 2009, 02:34 PM
id like to join this after reading the first page of the last RPG.

September 23rd, 2009, 02:39 PM
Yeah well i would like to join but because my writeing is shit i will just watch

September 23rd, 2009, 03:03 PM
Hellz yeah! I wanna play! This sounds like something I could get into! :biggrin5:

September 23rd, 2009, 03:11 PM
There's a chance in my case...

I kind of abandoned my role as an administrator in one RPG... Varth is going to rip my head off...

And I got the 'Continue The Story' under my wing.

When the RPG re-opens, I might take a look. In a nutshell : 60% Chance.

Commitment depends on potential I see in it. I've checked out the old thread a couple of times and looks fun.

I would love to join it, I love Text RPGs!

September 23rd, 2009, 04:49 PM
Another Text RPG, huh? Let me think about it. Mmm... This may take some time. Mmm...

OK! Count me in!

Well, since I single-handedly fucked up the first Quarentine, I'll join this one to redeem myself.

Speaking of which, this is the 3rd time Quarentine might be re-opened, right?

September 23rd, 2009, 04:55 PM
I'll join in, I participate in these types of threads all the time.

...I'm not telling you!
September 23rd, 2009, 04:56 PM
Meh. I'd love to do it but I'd no doubt lower the quality of it with my poor grammr, and broken 'a' key :(.

September 23rd, 2009, 04:59 PM
So how did you wrote 'a' just now?

...I'm not telling you!
September 23rd, 2009, 05:06 PM
copy and paste. but these are only short posts, doing it in a full blown RPG (in which I'd just feel inclinded to do mssive posts) I'd end up missing lots of a's :(

September 23rd, 2009, 05:08 PM
*pics up seringe*
Don't worry son', this will all end up good for all of us.
*gives you a shot*

Ok, but can't you buy a new Keybrd or send someone to fix it?

September 23rd, 2009, 05:32 PM
Please reopen it, I'd like to join.
It's a very easy-to-remember and realistic story.
Thank you in any way!

...I'm not telling you!
September 23rd, 2009, 05:44 PM
yeh we've got some one to fix it :).

September 23rd, 2009, 06:22 PM
When I saw this thread I thought ya meant this quarantine RPG http://quarantine2019.com ^_^

September 23rd, 2009, 07:02 PM
I'd join. I never find an opportunity, and it frustrates me. (I'm a dedicated member of several roleplay sites, and even owner of a TIEW one. Goes to show that I like text RPGs.)

September 23rd, 2009, 07:03 PM
If you do open it i hope that the players keep it realistic and don't go on zombie killing sprees, i hate that.

One of the main reasons why I ruined the first one.

Anyways, this should be fun, probably not going to use John McCarith, though.

If a dumb post comes up can't you guys just delete the post and tell the person why it was deleted? That's what I do on my RPG in SE? That way the thread doesn't get fucked up! I wnt to read this if it's released :P!

PS, you can't make a game without asking the Entertainment mod (Varthonai) or a super mod.

September 27th, 2009, 06:48 PM
I'm just waiting for it to open back up.

September 27th, 2009, 06:59 PM
Untill someone dies / has a "inciddent" I'm quite shure no-one else will enter. And if people make NPC's (Wich they will most probably wont) chances are even slimmer.
Just be patience and wait...

September 28th, 2009, 04:00 AM
Damn, whenever tawl opens up the thread im not on D:

ive posted maybe 2-3 times only

September 28th, 2009, 07:52 AM
