Thought I'd forgotten about this, did ya? Think again, readers, because the first batch of interviews is up and ready for GMs to read, reflect on and see how they can improve their threads. Whether you're a first-timer or experienced veteran, these deserve a read if you're looking to improve your writing and roleplaying skills.

For convenience, each interview is in its own separate spoiler. Also, most if not all of them are particularly long reads. Definitely worth it, though. Without further ado:

Index & Digest Interview 1:
GMs and the Way They Work

I love the idea of interviewing GMs! It's a really cool way of getting tips on writing and running games. Interesting reads, for sure. :D

On the "Status" section for Across the Four Great Islands (Index #1), it appears to be blank. I feel I should mention that people are free to PM character sheets or post them in the usergroup. (I hope I'm allowed to post this here. Doesn't seem like anyone else is commenting. D:)

I've updated the Index accordingly.

Mall Fight (Third Generation)

GM: MartinTox(not official, role taken due to no one else wanting to do it)
Genre: Meta sci-fi with primary comedic elements.
Status: Always open

Description: What was once a forum game/open RP hybrid now just a open RP due to the forum split, Mall Fight is not too different from it's original GameFAQs thread from some time ago.

The concept is that the players are trapped in a mall, and due due to the highly meta fiction basis it has, the players can respawn infinitely. The point is that they are to kill each other in funny ways, using what ever means necessary. However, people post in it like an RP for the most part so it's a little more of a plot less open RP that people can jump in and out off. Plots do happen ever so often but are not tooooo common.

Also, if this is accepted for an interview then as Tox's right hand man I will take the role as the interviewie.

On the brink of the end of days, a chain of thirteen omens has begun unfolding by the hand of the mysterious Black Feather, a secret order which seems to be in fact another group acting the puppetmaster of the fate of humanity, leading it towards doom and destruction. The most pressing threat, when these omens are fulfilled the Darkness...the twin of the Light, a deity worshiped by all good folk, will emerge and attempt to capture Earth and then bring about a reign of fear and agony which will last one thousand years. The organizations of Earth who were once dedicated to the separation of humans and non-humans and well as non-magic users and magic users are now forces of integration and of justice, aiding normal police when magic or monsters are involved and protecting magic users or monsters from normal humans. Usually separated by jurisdiction, things are changing which will force the organizations to unite and stop the chain of omens before the end of the world as we know it.
