[Bin-GO RP] Prompt Suggestions
Bin-GO RP Prompt Suggestions

It’s that time of year again! We’re dusting off the bingo card generator and switching out its bank of prompts for a whole new set of tropes.

Do you have a favorite trope? Is there a particular character interaction that you think would be fun to RP? We’d love to hear them! We’ll be gathering suggestions until January 23, after which we’ll update the generator for any new cards rolled in 2023.

As a reminder, bingo card prompts are ideas that players would be working towards in their scenes. These should focus on character interactions and other similarly small goals—for example, dancing with someone or accidentally dropping an item.

You may make as many suggestions as you’d like. Don’t worry about whether or not something has already been suggested; if a prompt shows up more than once, we’ll know it’s a popular one! If you prefer not to post in this thread, please feel free to echo Crow and/or Prose with your suggestions. We’ll keep a running list of all the ideas we receive.
