    Do you like to come into roleplays knowing where your plot is going or do you like to just wing it and sse what you and your friend come up with? If so, what were your experiences with either?

    Well since I've had experiences with Public Roleplay, I usually went in with the plot the person who made the RP go with and go by it, but would still have my own sideplot for the character. It usually went hand-in-hand either way.

    I'd go with a plot, since it gives you an idea of what to do, but you let the creator make it, not you.

    I'd prefer if there was a definite plot compared to one without one. I feel that the story flow will not be so good if we didn't meander through the agreed upon plot otherwise the role play will not pan out so great...

    I would say both. Sometimes I prefer to see what the others do, but sometimes I like ruining what they were planning or modify what they were going to do with a plot >:D. The results were good in both cases, almost always someone find the way to keep it fun and put order on the Roleplays :D

    I've done both a fair number of times. I often prefer trying to follow a pre-set out plot while developing my characters or other ideas on the side, but I've actually had a lot of fun with some "sandbox"-style roleplays; it gives everybody a chance to contribute to the plot (if there isn't one) in some way. Usually, every roleplay I've joined would have some loosely-set story guidelines and a setting laid out. But while developing our characters, ideas, etc., sometimes we'd start creating our own side plots while still loosely following the story; I allowed that a lot back in the Pokémon RPs I would make on other sites, as long as it didn't become a problem (i.e. one group or a particular character "hijacking" the entire story/getting more focus than the others).
