    Default Rules for the DQ Entertainment.

    How about, we have only 5 RPs at a time? More or less. People decide the total number.

    Good idea, but make it 6 instead of 5. 6 is a pretty kick-ass number... it has twice as many factors as 5, plus it's the Number of Man. My name and surname both have 6 letters, and my screenname Varthonai is based on 3 syllables with 3 letters each (3 syllables + 3 letters = hidden 6 in my name.)

    Also, 6 is a composite number, and the only 1-digit perfect number--"perfect" meaning that it is equal to the sum of its divisors. The divisors of 6 are 1, 2, and 3, and 1 + 2 + 3 = 6. (The next one doesn't come until 28--(1 + 2 + 4 + 7 + 14 = 28.))

    6 is also the number of points in the Hebrew version of Solomon's Seal. But perhaps coolest of all, it is spelled "sex" in a number of Romance languages. Which makes ironic punning sense, if you think about it.

    Of course, 7 is the number of God, which would be even cooler. But 7 only has 2 factors, and I think that to have 7 RPGs at once might be pushing it.

    I think 8 RPs could be good.

    Playing 10 Rps can really screw the forums.

    I dunno. 8 is the smallest positive integer with a whole unique square root. That might be a bad omen.

    Who's complicating things? It all makes perfect sense to me.

    Overboard is way more fun. Not nearly as hot or dry.

    Hey at least Varth made something fun out of it, all you do is complain, Fragger. I agree with Varth, 6 games sounds just about right. 6 active games, that is .

    Time Crisis hasn't really taken off as of yet, the rest have died.

    Nah, Continue the story is more of a forum game than an actual RPG. I believe we should be a bit careful about having way too many RPGs running, as this thread states. I have plans of a new RPG myself, however, I'll not release anything before I'm done with Sepso, or Sepso dies. (An unfortunate fate of most RPGs)
    I think it's okay to have around 6 active games plus-minus one or two. It has to be at least somewhat flexible.

    I think many thigs and I think nothing, but when it comes to some matter we must go with the flow. # of [RPG]'s should be = to the # of people on the Fourm.
