INTRODUCTION

Gather all ye Armorites!

Background

Today we begin our ultimate quest in service to the almighty Comunidad de Armor! We must suit up in our best Armatars and set out to fight the evil, monstrous beast known as Inactivity. Wield your posts and your threads, for they are the only weapons powerful enough to injure the seemingly invincible beast that rampages through our community.

Today, April 1st, 2013, is the very first day of the War of Falta de Actividad. It's the Armorites against Inactivity. We know the consequences if we are to lose, so we must begin the fight today! However, we must figure out how we're going to do it first!

Our Plan of Action

This war will require the services of all ye loyal Armorites; however, we're going to need backup. If you know someone who has free time and doesn't have to tend to their feudal lords or work in the Gondorian fields, tell them to join our plight!

We're absolutely going to need to cooperate if we're to defeat the evil Inactivity. Though, mere cooperation will only take us so far. We need to develop a clear cut plan to slay the putrid beast!

Sir Salvidian's Proposition

As with any full-scale war, we need a colorful mix of well trained men (and women, as this is an equal society). We need soldiers, bookkeepers, cooks, generals, and equipment operators. I propose we recruit people of all categories and divide them accordingly. After that, we begin our actual plan in dealing with our enemy.

Soldiers

Perhaps the backbone of our army, these men will carry out the actual fighting. They will post in order to directly fight. This rank is open to absolutely anyone and everyone and is a fairly easy field to work in. Being a soldier merely requires you to participate in the forums a bit more than usual. You will also be expected to occasionally report where and when you've posted, but, because this is supposed to be a simple rank, a simple report is all that is needed.

Bookkeepers

The bookkeepers will have a fairly sophisticated role. They will analyze where to attack and they will analyze how to attack. They will create the innovative threads that will be used as weapons. These are the inventors. They will remain in this thread, the Armorites' HQ, and will converse among themselves.

Cooks

The cooks will have a very laid-back role. It is only required that they keep spirits up o the Armorite side. They'll be the comedians, the musicians, and, ultimately, the entertainers. They are required to crack jokes on a day-to-day basis just to keep morale gong strong.

Equipment Operators

These men ensure that the threads and posts are working. If they aren't, they are to inform the bookkeepers and work alongside of them using their on-the-battlefield experience to help the bookkeepers develop better weapons.

Generals

The generals will carry out the most sophisticated role of all: they will ensure that everything runs smoothly. Their mission is to give input towards those who need a boost. They'll also control recruitment. They will be the leaders of the Armorites.

Recruitment

Recruitment will be easy: sign up by saying what role you want and check back to see if a general has approved.

In Summary

We'll be fighting Inactivity by building an army! Most of this will be based on Improvisation, and it'll be a fun (I hope) experience.

Get to it men! If you have a question, I'll answer it! HOORAH!

*not sure if April Fools joke*

Sure, I'll sign up for the infantry. I can guarantee there will not be any enemies left to fight once I get through with 'em.

*Completely forgets there aren't any generals to approve of recruitment yet*

I approve... though approving recruitment is more of an organizational thing.

I'm also making badges for the different roles.

I would like to be a general :3
But if you won't let me I'll just be a soldier. I'm good at posting ^^

Also, is this a joke? :P

Pathetic. Posting for the sake of posting, bah. Activity does not automatically mean quality activity.

This "fight" is one that everyone has to fight for themselves, as inactivity comes from ourselves. The more administrative roles might help a bit for the structuring of the fora, but that's all.

Ooooh!!! Can I be an equipment operator??

This isn't a joke is it? If not, can you please change the color from purple to red? It matches my hair better.

@HahiHa
Obviously someone didn't read the whole OP. It isn't posting just to post; it's posting for the sake of having fun doing so and increasing a little interest around here. The only role that has the purpose of posting is the Soldier, and they're posting utilizing a certain method. It's pretty annoying that someone would call this "pathetic." It's meant for fun.

Obviously I did. That's why I said that

The more administrative roles might help a bit for the structuring of the fora,
, in case you missed that. But, I am sorry for calling it pathetic, it was uncalled for.
I had fun making fun of that glamorous rescue mission, I'll let you have your fun now ^^

Is this the shrine? I would like to be an equipment manager. But what does it mean for a thread or post to work?

No, this isn't the shrine. The shrine won't be out for a while because I decided to do this instead. Besides, I already have 4 threads in The Tavern. After all, the shrine would only take in a select few participants. I might just do a big post in the Something thread. I don't know yet. As for "working" posts and threads, I mean "working" as in active or successful.

@blk2860: I think the Bookkeepers are supposed to make the threads and use this thread to determine the best placement.

What do you mean by using this thread to determine the best placement?


I think the Bookkeepers are supposed to converse in this thread to decide what threads to create and where to put them.

Because this is based on Improv most of what happens will be winged. In other words, anything can happen. Role objectives can (and probably will) change. It's up to what you guys wanna do.

By the way, we can start whenever. Bookkeepers will probably be the first guys to do anything major. Generals, give your orders.
