How long to wait before moving on
« Topic Start: September 20, 2011, 10:52:32 AM »
I'm currently waiting for someone to respond in the Test RP thread, but how long do I wait? There's only so many stalling RPs I can write. I don't want to shut out other people, but then I don't want to wait so long it gets boring for those following the story.

Like all things, there's no hard rule. The Game Rules say:

give ample chance for others to play as well

If you feel like you've given ample chance, then you probably have. Remember that there is no rule preventing you from roleplaying other characters, at least to a small degree. If you need him to move out of the doorway, you can do that. You can't make him cast magic or do anything complicated, but simple things he'd likely do are perfectly ok if you need them to continue your story.
