    A place where there is no dark
    well, actually, i'm copying off of gaia

    I give you, the Anti Munch Project!!!

    Here's the (unfinished) list of what we're against:
    The people who never miss a single shot no matter how hard it is (Aimbotters).
    The people who can't be hit or just shrug it off (god-moders).
    The people who never are without a weapon and ammo (idkfa-ers).
    The people who 'balance' thier characters by having a massive but irrelevant weakness and massive powers (min-maxers).
    The people who use Out Of Character knowledge to get an edge (Miss Cleos).
    The people who do things in hindsight (McFlys).
    The people who RP other people's characters for them (Puppetmasters).
    The people who RP completely irrelevant things (Daydreamers).
    The people who RP actions and time against others while the others aren't presant (Shoe elves).
    The people who ignore or alter RPs that they don't like (Revisionists).
    The people who RP an absurdly time consuming sequence occuring between other people's actions (Speedhackers).
    The people who play as characters that are completely impossible (Oxymorons).
    The people who've taken actions before they start RPing (Gaseous Snakes).
    The people who pull-in elements that were approved in an unrelated RP (Augustines).
    The people who use an existing persona and only RP them when it helps (Batmen).
    The People who copy existing RP Chars. slightly and give the originals no credit (Kopy Kats)

    In these examples, A will be our Good RPer and B will be our Nasty Filthy Munchkin.

    Aimbotters: Especially annoying when using NPCs, as NPCs don't get to argue about munch...
    A: Three hundred seventy of my trained assassin gymnasts crest the hill, sight you, and rush toward you.
    B: Luckily, I have three hundred sixty-nine bullets in my chain gun! I quickly mow them all down, each taking a single bullet to the head, and peg the last one with a rock in the sternum.

    Godmoders: Obvious.
    A: Now that you're strapped to the end of a naval cannon, I fire it.
    B: Whoosh! I nimbly dodge, somehow forgetting the fact that I'm restrained by three-hundred-pound chain!

    IDKFA-ers: Most likely people attempting to emulate Solid Snake or some other cheesy spy-novel hero.
    A: You're all out of ammo for all five of your Ingram submachine guns, 501!|). Since you're buck-naked, I know I can now safely step into the open and begin returning fire.
    B: Ha! Little did you know, I have twelve shuriken hidden within my pubic hair!

    Min-maxers
    A: I've successfully broken into the facility which gave you your incredibly 1337 power armor. Now I pull up the file on it. What does it say about weak points?
    B: The metal of my armor is... um... allergic to praying mantis urine.

    Miss Cleos: Obvious.
    A: ((OOC: There's a secret switch hidden in the lamp.))
    B: I suddenly think to myself-- why not check the lamp for hidden switches? Call me now for your free reading!

    McFlys
    A: Ha! Now that the force field is down, I run inside your evil lair!
    B: Um... um... there's also a super-secret second force field which causes you to die instantly! I just didn't say anything about it because... um... I had to do my laundry! Not because I just thought of it now! Honestly!

    Puppetmasters
    A: I step carefully into the room, peering around for occupants.
    B: Suddenly a dragon pokes you in the eye. You run screaming from the room, whereafter you go home, make a pickle sandwich, and call your mother to cry about how she ruined your life.

    Daydreamers: Not exactly munch, per se, but it does get annoying.
    A: In the middle of the intense shootout, I dash across the narrow alley, ducking and weaving in hopes to avoid getting hit. I'm unsuccessful; two bullets peg me in the shoulder, throwing me back into a Dumpster.
    B: The bullets make me think back to my days as a youth, when I had to melt down tin soldiers to use as musket balls against the Redcoats... or was it redskins? I can't remember. Anyway, I had to walk uphill all three ways to school and back, running from glaciers all the while. It was torture, lemme tell ya. And then there's the story of how I met my first wife...

    Shoe elves: Pretty obvious.
    A: ((OOC: Well, gotta go to bed. Big neurosurgery test tomorrow.))
    B: Ho, ho, ho! Now that the loser's gone to bed, I can strap his character to a cross and peg him with rotten fruit!

    Revisionists
    A: You chose the blue pill? Ooh, tough luck.
    B: Red! I said red! Don't go pulling that "I can read your previous post" mind game crap, either!

    Speedhackers
    A: I walk to the door and step outside.
    B: Suddenly, twelve men grab you, carry you off to my secret lair in Tibet, and torture you for weeks. When you finally die from the agony, we bury you in the frozen wastes. Hundreds of years later, arhcaeologists discover your frozen body and try to determine if you're another Lucy.

    Oxymorons
    A: I'm a farmer with a shotgun.
    B: I'm a black hole which emits blinding pulses of visible light!

    Gaseous Snakes: An advanced (or is that "dumb"?) form of McFlys.
    A: I walk to the door and open it.
    B: Being a fellow with a bit of foresight, I hooked that doorknob to a car battery an hour ago. You're thrown across the room.

    Augustines
    A: Given that this RP's technology base is midieval, I happily drive my cart to the market to buy some maggot-ridden meat.
    B: Too late! I already got there in my Gundam and blew up everything with my insanely overpowered weapons! And don't start whining, because my Gundam's already pre-approved in the "This Is Not a Midieval Technology Base RP" thread.

    Batmen
    A: In this Fantastic Four RP, I'll be Ben, the gruff rock-man with a heart of gold.
    B: I'll be Reed Richards, the living sex toy who hunts down innocent women to subdue with his incredible flexibility!

    Kopy Kats: only seen a few.. >.> <.< [in this one, C is the munch]
    A: I'll be a [1] named Tranor with (such and such) abilities
    B: I think I'll be a [2] named Fujerk with (this and that) abilities
    C: I'll be Tranwerk, a [1+2] with (such and that) abilities, oh he is completely mine, thought him up all on my own.




    tell me what you think, and what may need to be removed/added

    (some stuff probably doesn't apply on this forum)

    We'd need this deperately, because I'm sick of having my character controlled by others o_O etc.

    well, we'd have to define it a bit more, because that was originally written for a forum with nearly 100 times (ok, so i don't know the number, but its more...) the members that were RP only, no Blizzard stuff, no hacking stuff, there was a large body of pure RP people. so it'd have to be revised and further defined...all of them...

    but it also would have to sometimes be on a case by case basis
