So, guys, reading some posts around here, watching in the chat, etc, I have come to the conclusion that a lot of people here LOVE role-playing.  It seems like everyone wants to come put on a persona, to be someone that either cannot or are too afraid to be offline.  This is why I am now proposing the following changes to the way The Veritas Society functions:

Change the name to: Veritas RPG

Increase the font size of the number of posts users have by 10 times.

Create a Comprehensive skill and levelling system that grants you specific magical powers if you post in certain threads, read certain books, or associate with certain individuals long enough.

Make sure that everyone is aware of the importance of the number of stars underneath of their names.

Enforce in-character acting at all times.  Every post you make should make you sound like you are trying very hard to be super cool.  A good way to do this is to write "Namaste" at the end of all of your posts.  You could choose something else to, like changing the spelling of select words to make yourself sound like you are using Old English and therefore are super cool.

Also, it is highly important that you pretend as if you are an expert in absolute everything at all times.  No matter what your real knowledge or experience, we need it to be highly evident to everyone that you are trying very hard to sound smart and well-informed.  It doesn't matter if what you have to say makes sense, just that someone around the age of seven would think you were intelligent for saying it.  A good way to learn this skill is by watching episodes of Star Trek or Stargate SG1.

Every member of the Veritas RPG will be required to debunk the posts of others on a fairly regular basis (justifiably so or not) in order to raise their own credibility score.  Only after you have debunked a certain number of posts will you be able to increase your credibility score by posting new content.


This is about all I have right now.  Any question, comments, or suggestion are welcome.

A splendid idea... I would like to add that Prophecy or one of the other elite shouldest flarest their eyeseth and maketh them gloweth when their blood boils! And that upon speaking their voices shall rumble deeply and strike fear into all!

Hey if it's going to be an RPG then I want a weapon. Maybe a golf club, preferably a driver. That'll get some heads spinning...

I am desireth to quescheon your reasoning Frater Rafnul. I am of the opinioneth that this idea is olde and outdated! Only a sorceror of great repute could ressurect such evil tom-foolery.

Cool, but i would make that a seperate site. New users might be torn between the RPG and actually learning. :confused:

According to the manual, you must have at least 4 stars under your screen name and you must roll a 20 to cast magic missile.

Jeez.
