How to recruit
« on: November 07, 2008, 08:59:57 PM »
Update on Recruiting thread formats.

For the Subject/title of the thread, please use:

Title of your Thread (System)

i.e.

"Sticks and Stones: A Stone age Game (Rope)"

So, right from the recruiting page, someone will know that this recruiting thread is for a game titled "Sticks and Stones: A Stone Age Game" and that it will be using "Rope" as the game system.

Hello!

In the interests of making it easier to advertise games and recruitment on this and other sites, Please take the time to post the following information in the recuiting section of the forum about your game:
This also might be a good intro to your Recruitment thread.

Title: (The title of the Game or campaign or scenario you are running)
Blurb: (A short - about a dozen words - blurb about the game)
Genre: (one or more, also please note if the game will have mature / disturbing themes)
System: (Name of the system, if applicable.  If home-brew, please say so)
(also note what version, and what optional rules are being used)
Materials Needed: (if any; also where can the materials be found)
Description: (A more in depth description of the game, and the plotline)

Please follow up in the recruitment thread with:
• A link to the game forum when it becomes available
• An update when the game is full
• An update if positions open up while running
• An update when the game has concluded

Thanks, this will help those of us who are trying to recruit players for your games - it's hard if we don't know what your game is about or if it's even open!

Players are posting up their wish lists and dream games on the "I Want to Play" board:

http://www.rpgrm.com/rmsmf/index.php?board=340.0

So any potential GM who doesn't have a fixed, concrete game concept in their head, can go look over there. It's like fishing in a barrell, lots of pre-caught players to be had.

If you're done recruiting, ask for your thread to be closed (It'll keep people from asking to join a full up game)

If a recruting thread is over 3 months with no replies, it'll be archived to "Recruiting Closed" for inactivity.

We like the recruiting thread to be fairly fresh, with the games described being ones people can actually join.
