Originally posted here, but I feel like this proposal didn't get the attention it deserved. I don't want it to be forgotten, because it could boost site-activity tenfold.

I am sure every single one of you know those storytelling RPG games where a DM leads the group through their journey, such as Dungeons and Dragons, World of Darkness or maybe Forgotten Realms.

We are playing a similar game here, though we have some differences. We don't have complex character sheets or a hundred types of rolls. Our adventures, quests and character developments are identical.

Now plots are ran by players who take part. You can get a DM for it, but the whole concept was created by a player who's related. I have seen some great storytellers among our players. I suggest that a DM should be able to host her own plot, - without involving any of her characters, - invite players, invite other DMs if she wants to, and story-tell freely.

You can already do this, maybe the DM credit rewards might need refreshing but I’m sure you can already do this.

I'm not certain on what you're wanting to do? Are you suggesting hosting your own plot?

You can't DM in your own plot now.

Hosting your own plot, and DM'ing it. You wouldn't even need to have a character account. You make up the stories and present it to those who take part, full of surprises.

I thought you’re asking to run DM plots where you just DM and not actually participate? Pretty sure you can submit plots for that.

I'm afraid you can't.

Kind of late for me to respond, but aren't DMed mission packs done by people who aren't participating? If not then that's weird lol.
Yes, but that plot and all it's ideas is made by someone who's participating.

I'm pretty sure that some aren't. I mean you could participate, but like Sreeya isn't participating in this one, and I assume TWD isn't participating in this one since he didn't sign up. Aren't they the ones directing the DMed ones?

But they are free to do that. Not sure where you're getting your info but what you want to do is already allowed. DM'd plots might not be directly mentioned in the plot rules, but have been part of the site for a long time and are very much already allowed.

I am going to sign up for that one btw, just giving people a chance to join before I put myself down.

Brandon and two staff members told me in private that they liked the idea, need a clarification if it's already allowed or not then. Basically, can you DM the whole plot you've submitted?
