    So after thinking things through. I believe I could actively keep up with up to 6 characters.... however.

    I've also concluded that if I did such, I'd have 2 problems.
    First off, the world of lordran was not intended to be populated by 4 miserable souls, all of the "online" communication inbetween the 4 hero's would feel very forced.

    Secondly, I feel that if I had 4 different characters (read, 6 active threads), we would have a major problem of it being too big for the forum to comfortably hold in General Discussion, which is the best place for this type of a topic. It would be very conceited of me to ask for another section to place these threads in, especially when this might very well be a trend you all get bored of.

    So in conclusion, I'm asking a question (that is now only even remotely dark souls related) about my rolling game...

    1: Would anyone be interested in having me run more then 1 character?
    2: Where should we move this game to if we did such.
    3: How should I run the online interaction if I did such? Do you think that certain Hero's falling behind, due to it's player not being online/playing as often would be a major problem?

    anyway, Discuss.

    I currently have a thread in General Discussion where other forumers are chosing the actions of a dark souls hero and then I've been rolling a die to see what happens in his journey. I was asked by a Yukon if I might be expanding it at any point, and I said I'd think about it. Hence this thread where I'm discussing the obstacles of expanding that dark souls related adventure.

    You know I'm on board for this if you think you can handle it, rynn. I think it would be easiest to manage in Skype or another IM program, but chatter would have to be reduced between moves since I imagine it takes time to write up your posts. Perhaps chatango would work as well if not everyone has or wants to try a IM

    As for players falling behind it would probably depend on how you handle the character interactions. Would they be interacting by placing summon stones ? Or just be in company the whole time? I think somethin could be worked out for people falling behind

    1: Would anyone be interested in having me run more then 1 character?

    Whatever is easiest for you, honestly. This shouldn't become a second job, in my opinion.

    2: Where should we move this game to if we did such.

    Keep it in general discussion, but limit the amount of games.

    3: How should I run the online interaction if I did such? Do you think that certain Hero's falling behind, due to it's player not being online/playing as often would be a major problem?

    Yes, plus everyone has different schedules. It might be better to limit yourself to 1 or 2.

    Totally agree with this. This should be something fun, not something that will turn you around every which way except sideways.
