Whew. So, you might've already heard that we've been working on a side project that has gotten a lot of attention. So with this in mind, how do you roll?

Me... Well, as the saying goes:



I roll twenties.

So how do you roll?

Less than a month till the end of bingo! Congrats to folks who have finished (going for a second line or card? :) ) and there's plenty of time left to those who are still working on it. If you haven't snagged a card yet, check out the rules and grab yours here.

Shameless plug for those of you who may be wondering what the heck is going on with those people anyhow - http://roll4itdice.com/ - we're forming a dice company (a subsidiary of our main Lab Arc LLC). You can find our dice in person at some stores already (like Game Paradise in Indiana :) ), or in our Etsy store. We're working on getting online ordering up and running on the domain. Our first in person appearance will be for Free Comic Day May 2nd at the NJ event run by Farpoint Toys / Level Up Entertainment.

Now on to the prompts!

Sunday RP:

You are stuck in a confined space - an elevator, a closet, a hallway with the doors locked, a subway car, a train, an island, a locked mansion - with someone who has wronged you and escaped justice, and whom likely will continue to do so. You have the opportunity to enact your own justice, though not necessarily the guarantee that you'll escape justice yourself if you do. The next few minutes are yours to decide. What do you do?

It's setting week here at Charloft! Expect lot of prompts to do with setting this week, starting with this survey - answer as many or as few questions as you like.

3. Which of the five senses is it easiest for you to evoke with place settings? Which is the hardest?

4. How does your character interact with his/her setting?

5. What would change about your character if you changed the setting?

6. How would you classify your setting (Alternate history, Dystopia, Fictional Country, Real Country, Fantasy World, post-apocalyptic world, etc.)? What are some other works of fiction that you admire that use this type of setting?

8. What other characters share this setting?

They say that a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. So take that step!

You are starting off on a trip (to where? for what purpose?) and need to prepare. Pop into a shop, ask someone for directions, stop for fuel - and see who you meet along the way.

In addition to your regular character tag, tag your post with RP. Comment on each other's posts and lets meet some new friends.

Everyone has secrets, and every world has people who want to know those secrets. Whether it's the NSA, the Templars, the King, the Town Elders, the Church, or just your parents, there's always too many secrets for some people's tastes. So for today's Twosday Tuesday, we ask:

What are two secrets you'd rather keep from the other characters in your world, and what are two people or groups you'd rather keep them from in particular?
ourlostprophet: (how to fly)

In honor of Martin Luther King day, let's talk about diversity in characters. Writing characters of different races, backgrounds, sexualities, and beliefs without resorting to stereotypes is one of our most important tasks as writers. Humanity has a lot of facets - and then there's aliens, vampires, and anthromorphs to consider! But speaking about the human-ish for now--

Share some of your favorite resources, links or advice for writing on the diverse spectrum of humanity.

Some of mine:
