    It think it most so depends on what type of story you are trying to tell or what you want characters to experience. Typically i look at things as more so if I want an odd or even number. Most of my rps usually have 5 or 7.

    I think a lot depends.
    Activity Dates: I am most frequent Monday, Wednesday through Saturday. I am rarely free Tuesdays and Sundays though may be able to find some time.

    Currently looking for friends and Rp's if you think I might fit please let me know!

    Kinda depends. If you intend on writing your own lore and background really anything from 3 to 8 can work fine though I think anything above 8 is probably starting to push it a bit. If it's fantasy you can theoretically just let rip and say all common fantasy races are accepted though that's only feasible if you are willing to let go of creative control a bit letting players write their own bits of lore.

    As many as your system has mechanics for.
    if it gets to the point that Race nation or alliance is only cosmetic without consequence then who cares.
