Backwoods Incantation is a literate modern fantasy roleplay forum, set in the moderately-populated city of Mossy Hollow, Georgia, where beings as diverse as pixies, werewolves, and vampires roam. The site is run by experienced roleplayers and is open to writers of all skill levels. Check the quick links below for more information.
Premise and ideas belong to Hunter
and Avery. All characters belong to their respective creators.
Theme by Angelic Girl.
The banner fonts Hitman and Fiolex Mephisto are by Rakesh and Fiolex Software, respectively, and were found via dafont. The banner image itself is from glavind of stock.xchng.
After seeing lots of people elsewhere list word count minimums as a pet peeve or turnoff, I decided to collect input on the matter, both from our current members as well as any guests who would have otherwise been interested. Do you dislike all word count rules, on principle? Do you tolerate them as long as they're not too high? Do you prefer having them? Do you prefer not having them? Would you be happier (or in the case of guests, join the site) if we got rid of ours?
I'm interested in whatever opinions you have, provided you're someone who does or would want to roleplay here. This poll is just testing the waters; please feel free to post your honest opinion.
I like the word count as a suggestion, but sometimes there are situations when it's not necessary to have a word count, or can cause information that's a bit off topic to be included in the post. Maybe have it heavily suggested, but still have people be able to post if the post doesn't live up to the word limit.
I mostly ignore word count limits unless they're ridiculously high. Anything more than 250 and I start to sigh. However, I don't mind something like a 100 word limit because it prevents one liners and encourages beginners to strive for something.
I also like word counts as a suggestion, but when it's high like 300 or so and you're in a fight with another character it can be very frustrating and tedious. It is a good way to make sure people don't get lazy and helps to push for greater detail though.
Though the way may seem ever darker, step by step I keep walking, hoping to one day find the light.

Hunter: Well hello Shatteredverse. And huh, that's strange, Azure. I'm not sure what that could be from.

Azurelle: Positive. I only use one password for these proboard accounts, and 2 usernames. Besides, it doesn't tell me I entered things wrong. It redirects me to the home page but I'm still not logged in.
