PostSubject: Operation Barbaros 22 JUN 41   Thu Feb 24, 2011 10:16 pm

I would like to get an RP started using a German unit during Operation Barbarosa. The 2nd SS Division is one I have information on and can format a timeline to use. I don't want people to command entire Fronts or even divisions and Regiments. There is so much more going on at the Platoon and Squad level. So please use the organizaitions I have posted in the Barracks below and post a Platoon or Squad. If you don't want to name every soldier in a Platoon, please name the NCOs and Platoon Leader. If you want to play Russian, we'll need an organization posted first and I don't want to combine Russian and German units in the same RP thread. The Russian RP will need its own OOC thread too.

As I've stated earlier, I will RP the higer echelon commanders, adjacent units, and the enemy. I'll try to guide the flow along with timeline information. Some of it may be inserted into this OOC thread. I will also start by setting an example of what I mean by posting a unit.

Post your unit in this thread:

Hey gunther

I am on a mac computer and do not seem to be able to join the action.

Also I do not really understand how this works. Can you maybe explain it so a complete novice like me can understand.

Cheers,

Zhukov

PS I have some understanding of Russian formations but not down to divisional level. They tended to favour monolithic units. Like machine guns, artillery, tank, infantry all had separate companies, and were deployed separately.

Role Playing is essentially an exercise in creative writing. In a traditional Role Play, each person assumes the identity of a character, like what was found in Dungeons & Dragons. The RPer can write whatever he wants about his character to further the story line. Someone may moderate the thread in order to keep it on a specific line.

My experience with Military RPs is that if everyone plays an individual, there is no teamwork. Teamwork is essential to any military operation. Many of the people I have RPd with don't understand that and tend to do or say things that lead to an unnecessary conflict or one that doesn't support the story line. Granted conflict is good they lend excitement to a story line.

A few rules on RPing is that you can not say what any other RPers character(s) are doing. You can only speak for your unit. Since this is a Military RP based on a timeline, as the moderator, I will keep the unit moving forward. Speaking/writing for someone else's character is called godmodding and extremely forbidden.

Your In Character (IC) voice are those things you write that assume the role you are portraying. Your Out of Character (OOC) voice are those things you write that is coming from you the RPer (Zhukov1968). They may be questions about conflict, looking for clarification, praise, or informational in nature. When I do RPs, I like to keep IC and OOC voices separate. With that said, we are currently using the OOC forum, to iron out details. While RPing in the IC thread, which has not yet been created, we will try to keep OOC comments to a minimum. We will link the OOC thread to the IC thread and vice versa. I will post a link to both in the Original Posts (OP) of each thread

Some ideas that I have come up with for this RP tend to relate to what soldiers on the march (marching on foot) are going through, the hardships they suffer when winter sets in and any other hardships or advantages the troops may experience due to their position.

does this help? I don't know what you can and cannot see from using a MAC. I haven't seen an "Apple" since 1982.
