"Old School Week" ( or "OSW" as we've affectionately taken to calling it ^_^ ) has become a staple on HNZ, after first being introduced as a suggestion from two site members - Jesse and Ash. Camilla is the most recent winner of the prize during White 🐘 to decide when OSW would take place, and she wants to use it NOW! :party: :party:

🎉 :frantics: So on behalf of Camilla: It's old school week! :frantics: 🎉

So, what is "Old School Week" you ask? We'd like to think of it as a challenge to roleplay in a very specific way. For OSW, the focus is on an OPEN and shorter roleplay style. Many of us began roleplaying in this way which helped us to a)build up our skills and b) find/enjoy working with new RP partners.

If you need a visual of what it's all about, check out these roleplays from a previous OSW:

Camilla has even started an OSW RP of her own: You Must Be This Tall that we encourage you to join!

We've only got a few rules for this event:
1. RPs still have to comply with all board rules.
2. All "Old School Week" RPs must be open and should be marked with the OSW prefix.
3. We're also going to ask that you tag all roleplays for this as Old School Week or OSW. Just another way to help people to find them all more easily!
4. Keep your replies short! This will be the only time we ever impose rules on post length. ;)

Let us know if you'll be joining below. I can't wait to read all of the fun plots! :frantics:

Have fun! :party:
(on behalf of Camilla because she can't start topics in here :p)
