If you are reading this, you have fallen into the TV Tropes of YWS RPGs. In this forum, you will find guides for making incredible stories, characters, plots, twists, turns, deaths, resurrections, turncoats, redemption stories, and so much more that is a bit too much to capture in one go. You'll also find advertisements for potential storybooks that have yet to come to pass.

So this is how you use Gen SB Discussion:

1. Write guides to help others improve their RPG experience.
2. Participate in discussions to better engross yourself in the collaborative writing experience.
3. Throw your ideas to the sharks and see who bites.
4. Seek out potential storybooks to join during their development phase.
5. Ask any questions you may have about storybooks or RPGs on YWS in general.

Later on, this thread will display links to helpful guides and discussions, so be sure to subscribe for updates!

A Guide to NPC Profiles made by yours truly will help you in case someone drops from your SB, or even if you want to make a profile for a No-Player-Character (which is what NPC stands for!); regardless of reason, check the thread in case you need to work some magic.

A Guide To Making Effective Characters by @Via will give you a great glimpse into really leaving a mark on active stories going on the RPG forums--and in your own personal writing as well. I highly recommend this thread for anyone who wants to crank their characters up to eleven.
