How To Create A Successful RPG
 By Velski   •   14th Jul 2010   •   3,679 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?
How To Create A Successful RPG
The Fall On 22 August 2010 I attended a small practice jumping show. After entering my young horse, Moonfire, in the 60cm and 70cm class I took him home to fetch my brilliant little pony, Tempest, for a friend of mine to ride. The theory behind this decision was that I planned to have her enter Tempy in graded jumping, under my supervision of course, since I am now t . . .
 
 
Trick Training - Teach Your Horse to Bow Every little girl has a dream. To be swept off her feet by a charming knight in shining armour on a big white horse, and have him kneel down before her, take her hand, kiss her cheek, and whatever other secret, romantic fantasy her little heart desires. Unfortunately, for some little girls, the world can kind of a wad about the whole Ďcharming knightí thing, . . .
 
Retraining A Racehorse Ė Moonfire Ė Cross Country - Part 1 On 17 February 2011, I began preparing Moony for his eventing debut. After his Third Place in his first jumping show of the year, I decided it was time for him to start eventing and see if he couldnít achieve similar results. We boxed Moony and Bronze to a nearby venue that we could rent for the use of their cross country course, and began preparing both . . .
 
From square one - The full story of Finola It all started toward the end of 2004, when I happened to be paging through a newspaper and came across a certain article: "Mares and foals for sale!" Typical of a young, horse crazy child, I ran to my mother and nagged my lungs out until the phone call was made. Thus it was decided: we were going to "See the cute little foals!Ē . . .
 
Crazy Stunts with Olop - Jumping Backwards - Part 2 Let me begin with a note to any of you who scorn this idea: I first got this idea from seeing a photo of Rodrgio Pessoa, an undeniably brilliant rider, trying the exact same stunt: Jumping his horse backwards. It isnít just some harebrained scheme I concocted on my own. Next, let me mention my motivation for persevering with this dangerous and surprisingl . . .
 
Saddle Up Series - Understanding Your Horse's Back - Part Seven Saddle fitters are the main reason that I have trust issues, and I know Iím not the only one. When it comes to saddle fitting, the best advice I can give you is this: Trust no one, not even yourself. Unfortunately for us ignorant riders, saddle fitting is an art. Even qualified saddle fitters sometimes wonít have the Ďeyeí to see if a saddle truly fits, a . . .
 
Pelham Ponies - Yay or Neigh At every show, without fail, we will see some tiny kid chucked up on the million dollar showjumping pony that Daddy dearest smashed his piggy bank to buy, and 9 out of ten times, little Sally or Mary-Sue will be sitting on the poor critter with a bit that looks like it could stop a tugboat, hauling the poor animalís back teeth out. Now, itís clear for all . . .
 
Young Horse Dictionary In this article, I will providing definitions for what our commands mean to the young horses weíre trying to train. This article is for entertainment purposes only. What you say: "Bad horse." What he hears: "Excellent work today, my valiant steed! Youíve carried out all my instructions perfectly! I simply cannot wait to do all this again tomorrow! . . .
 
The Bit Dictionary - Introduction - Part 1 of 3 When it comes to bitting, you always want to go with the softest option possible. A horseís mouth is extremely important, and you want to keep it soft so that you have a clear connection with your horse, and can use light, subtle aids. Anybody who has once ridden a school pony can probably tell you how unpleasant a horse with a hard mouth is to ride. They le . . .
 
The Impossible - The Story of Choc - Part 1 So I promised that I would write an article if Choc ever recovered from her surgery, and two gruelling years later, here we are. It has been a bumpy road with a lot of twists and turns along the way, but in the end, looking back at all the tears and turmoil, I can honestly say that Iíd do it all again. Seeing the look on Chocís face when I walk up with a bri . . .
