How To Create A Successful RPG
 By Velski   •   14th Jul 2010   •   3,697 views   •   8 comments
Itís not always easy to create a successful RPG. It takes a lot of thinking, unless you have one that youíve made elsewhere that worked really well. But making that RPG took a lot of thinking too. Itís amazing how much fun RPGs are, but no one truly appreciates how much work you put into it. The best way to make an RPG is to find something everyone enjoys, and to advertise for it. Post an advertisement on the home page. Send messages. However, if you send messages, always copy and paste it, sending it to one person at a time so if someone answers those who deleted it wonít have to delete it again.

How To Create A Successful RPG

My first tip is to find something everyone likes. The most popular is Wild Horse RPGs. However, they arenít always the most fun. For example, my favorite was Serinidiaís Warriors RPG. However, that ended awhile ago. It always saddens me to see a good RPG go to waste. Some other RPGs you can find in the Forums are the Stray Dog RPG, Pegasus RPGs Horse only RPGs, Riding School RPGs, Teen RPGS, Ghost Hunting RPGs, and more. As I said before, the most popular are the Wild Horse RPGs.

Another tip is to always try to get as many people to join at the beginning as possible. Some people donít understand when to join. I feel itís always important to establish when the RPG is closed. For example, after you get ten people, itís closed. Maybe after five people. My second RPG, Riding School RPG, is my most popular. It might be the most posted on in the forum, I donít know that, and I donít care. RPGs are always for fun, not a popularity contest.

Hereís my favorite tip: put ALL the rules in the first part of the post. If you donít, some people might get confused when you tell them they canít do something you didnít put in the rules. You might want people to have only one person, and forget to put it in the rules, and then people donít understand why they canít have two people. Some of the rules should be obvious, like no swearing and so on. But some rules, like the amount of characters one, might be less obvious because some people donít mind allowing more then one character per person.

Another one of my favorite tips: create something new. Sure, Wild Horse RPGs are fun, but they can get old when thatís all you see. Try something like a cat RPG, or a cow RPG, or something random. Whatís popular isnít always the best choice. Sure, it seems cool at first, but if you never try something new, you never know if itíll be popular or not. I wasnít so sure about my second RPG when I started it, but after I posted a few times, Serinidia joined me. We went on like that for a while, and Weezapony joined. More people joined after it got a bit more popularity. At that point, Riding School RPGs were fairly rare.

RPGs are a very fun forum topic, and Iím very grateful PonyBox allows them. Are you grateful for RPGs?
