We invite roleplayers looking for new or different roleplay to try Taco 'n' Banana (TnB). Come see our forums here: www.taconbanana.com. Just download the content mega packs and you are all set to play on our servers. If you want to know more, just keep reading.
What is TnB?
TnB is an open-ended, player based community, and it is one of the longest running GMod roleplay communities to date. Rather than dictate through scripts or rigid adherence to wide character restrictions, we rely on the players to make the roleplay and craft the setting. While there are some restrictions on certain elements of roleplay, these are intended to enhance the experience only. Anyone who shows a genuine effort and real creativity in their roleplay will find TnB to be a fun and rewarding experience.
What does TnB have to offer?
Currently we offer Half-Life 2 themed and Terminator themed roleplay. You will note that we refer to these as "themed." Again, rather than hold people to a linear pathway for character and setting development we allow these canons to be more open to interpretation and give people an opportunity to add their own piece to it. We also have a unique Cyberpunk roleplay in the works and coming along well. You can preview the concepts on the forums and offer your input as well.
Could you further explain "the players make the roleplay"?
At TnB we feel that everyone should have a chance to roleplay their characters as they feel they should rather than strictly how someone else thinks they should. That is not to say we allow for everything, of course, but we believe more roleplay, and more interesting roleplay, can be made through permitting players to really create their own characters rather than give them a preset and tell them to stay with it. As long as it is not blatantly distracting or disruptive to other players or the setting we tend to be all right with it. If you are ever unsure whether or not something is okay, just ask one of our Roleplay Development Admins or Senior Executive Admins.
Are there jobs and money? And what about joining factions?
The only "jobs" on TnB's servers are those made by the players. There are no script defined jobs. Money only exists as a roleplay element on our Half-Life 2 RP and actually has limited impact on your roleplay overall. Again, it relies heavily on you as the player. This allows for many opportunities in your character development, but does require you to go out and make the effort. To join most factions, rather than execute a script command, you must go an apply for it on our forums. The others must be joined through your roleplay. This ensures those joining the factions are dedicated to enhancing the roleplay overall.
