RPing via the RP tab in game.

Post by Paqtesm on Sun Apr 12, 2015 2:10 am

I am writing this guide from personal experience with text based games and many years of D&D. It is to help people better understand basic commands and role play within a text based fashion for those either new to it or looking to improve.

    The primary basic to role play is to keep yourself in character as much as possible. You are not the person taking the actions or speaking the words the character designed off your specifics is the one. You must place yourself in what would they do based on the back story you have given them, their goals in life, and what they have currently achieved. Give them their own personality, their own skills, their own life. Also its not typically advised to make a character that is always stronger than everyone else, honestly starting with a weaker character and building him/her off growth through Rp is the best way to go because if gives your character unique options as they grow.
   
    Also if people decide to come into the chat and post random messages or messaged that are specified to bring you down or incite anger just ignore the posts and don't reply at all. Continue paying attention to the people in the Rp that are actually involved.
   
    Now I am going to list the basic commands or symbols used during Rp. These are just suggestions and are not required but they do help people in the Rp understand and stay focused.

        ( This typically denotes OOC or Out of Character posts )
   
        * This typically denotes a characters physical action.*
   
        "Of course denotes a character speaking, I myself only use these when a character not my own but in my control is speaking I use no symbols to denote my personal character speaking."
   
        {Typically used to denote an NPC type characters actions.}
     
         [Used very little yet most use this to denote thought, never understood people being able to see others thoughts but it has been done]
   
    These are you basic commands used during Rp.
   
    Now one of the biggest things is Rp is keeping it fair. If you have a character that has studied after the academy after only a few years, and no back story to support graduating early for whatever reason, or graduating top for whatever reason. Then is going to be clearly reasonable that, that character is not going to be able to take down someone who has been training after the academy for hundreds of years. Also during combat within Rp it is not advised to land your own attacks which leads back to being fair. If someone surprises you completely you may have enough talent to block or doge, or may not. Take hits, dodge, counter, accordingly. Keep it interesting and don't always try to be better than the other person it creates a bland character and a bland Rp. Also its not advised that lower characters to know a ton of moves and techniques and have them mastered unless they can have a back story that supports them learning them and still being quite lower on the ladder.
   
    All I can really add to this is to enjoy yourself. Try not to be rude, ignorant, or arrogant to others. Keep is respectful and fun for everyone. Also if you have an issue with another play try and sit down and talk it out something could possible be done to rectify the situation without any serious repercussions. I hope that has taught anyone who reads it something and that it was simple to understand. Comments, Scrutiny, and Advice would be nice as well.

Referring back to people that are posting random messaged. I would ask that anyone who reads this and doesn't participate in RP to be respectful to the people Rping. Its disrespectful to jump in and post randomly. Or to post nonsense not involved with the Rp. The chat is meant for Rp and some of us do wish to do so. And if you wish to join ask to be updated or read back through to see what has been going on. And join in an Rp fashion, try not to just pop in and start with a nonsense post.
