Allow me to clear up any confusion the title may make by mentioning a nice little play called Rosencratz and Guildenstern Are Dead. This is what I would give as an example of a meta-story I refer to in the title (using "meta-story" to make up for not coming up with a better term). Mainly focusing on what would be a kind of ensemble otherwise, the minor characters that usually relate to a plot very little.

Is it possible? To make a story out of a bunch of irrelevance when attention should be elsewhere? Maybe tread the line of Seinfeld, a role play about nothing. Honestly the idea has only been swimming around in my mind, I have no guarantee it could work. But fun is still part of the question... Yea? Nay?

I'm no mod, but this could work. Since this board needs a revival, I'd be all for any attempts that try to reboot it.

Could you go a bit more in depth?

I find that they work on other forums. Just something simple like a RP that starts off in a coffee shop.

Oh, I get it now! I'd actually be interested. Any way to hone to my skills would be nice. This would be a new field to try.

I feel this would be useful for me wanting to join back in RPing.  Typically I have a problem with like forgetting about it.  Or coming back the very next day to find out that everything goes to hell and back and it just gets tiring to catch up.

I actually did something similar to this a while ago (like 7 years ago...which...is a while).  We were a casual RP and we had the occasional real plot, but nothing much and people could routinely go off and have their own plots.
Gary was here.  Ash is a loser.
