Man you must have been wasted at that party, because you have no idea where you are, or what happened for that matter. Come to mention it, why aren't there any cars around? Or people? Wait you're starting to remember, after the party you were driving home, when there was a bright flash and- Oh no! Marauders!

This is the third RPG you've started in three days. Chill out. You can't just throw yourself into a new one every day. Someone might join an old one and you'll have to work on several at once.

Suggestions:
-Pay very close attention to other popular RPGs. If your story is very close to theirs, your RPG will fail. People don't like rip-offs, so, even if you think your idea is new, check the newest four or five pages.
-You CAN copy the style of successful RPGs' character sheet/stat sheet/player sheet, etc. Never copy it directly, but I think you figured that out.
-Advertise in the "New RPG" thread at the top of Forum Games. It's stickied, and it gets erased every two weeks, so yours will be fresh.

I made one RPG: "Strike or Stealth." I got five responses in two days and it's still going, although only one person is still playing (meh). Read my initial post.

We already have:
-a complicated Fantasy RPG (Emerald Sword)
-a less complicated Fantasy RPG (Heroes of Irridia)
-a futuristic fight RPG (Ground Zero)
etc

You've tried three. Take a break, man. I very highly suggest you leave all of them alone for one week (7 full days). If you get a hit before the week is up, go for it. If you have zero hits, lay off for a while and do other things on AG. Play some other games. Keep an eye on the other games. Do some research. Try again, but advertise.

-Matt

You find yourself in a large hotel, though it appears the very walls have been ripped away.

I'm going to agree with Matt. Now I don't think it would be a bad idea to have an Apocalypse RPG, but it's difficult to keep track of so many that you have already, and if they join it becomes more of a problem. Try and stick to one RPG at a time.

Anyways I'm going to add my input into this.

Ok great, you have hunger and thirst, it should matter in an apocalypse. I like the short and simple sheet as well. But I think you should add more to the story. Right away I didn't want to join because of your introduction.

There was also a lack of rules and guidelines. You didn't mention if players are going to be able to meet eachother, etc.

You should stick to one RPG and try to advertise it. Obviously don't exaggerate but you can still ask friends to join and stuff. :P

And last but not least, don't get mad if you think we're pushing you around. We just know how it works around here :) Hope you take this criticism nicely, I don't do it often...

I'll think about it when I make a new RPG when these die out.

I venture outside the hotel, being cautious due to the strange silence around me.

You notice a group of bandits in the distance.
