As of February 4th, 2010, we will be enforcing rules in this Rp. I will describe the rules/guidelines in detail and make them as easily understandable as possible. Note that the guidelines are not usually enforced whereas the rules are always enforced.

Rules


  • No text talk- After a vote on the team, we have decided not to allow any text talk in the Rp. You may use it when making out of character comments such as ((G2g)) or ((Brb)), but other than that, it is not allowed. Any posts seen made in the text talk format will be subject to deletion. ~Added February 3rd, 2010


Guidelines


  • No posts should be made that contain less than 50 characters. Seeing as this is a guideline, it will not be enforced as much as a rule would be. The only reason this would be considered a rule and get a post deleted would be if the post only contained one, unproductive word. ~Added February 3rd, 2010

  • Do not post content of a romantic nature excessively. Keep in mind that this is a Mystery Dungeon Role Play, not a Romance Role Play. If it gets to the point where the majority of posts are found to be of a romantic nature and degrade the quality of the Role Play, appropriate action will be taken. This could be anything from a simple warning to actual deletion of said posts. ~Added March 26, 2010


Rules made and updated by Forgoten_Scars. If you have any questions about them, please consult him in the chat thread.

Intro


With all the people currently participating in Role Plays here in the Teams and Clans section of the site, I feel that a guide is needed to inform people on how to do things properly. This is in no way a set of rules, but rather a 'How to' on the art of role playing correctly. In this guide, you will find a description of role plays, a guide on how to role play, and a detailed list of how to go about participating in a role play to the best of your ability.

I: What is a Role Play?


A role play is a fictional, ongoing story between two or more members done through the use of alternate identities known to most as 'Rp Characters'. Role plays may range in subject from Star Wars to Pokemon; from an alternate world to one of real life; to just about anything containing a situation in which people can actively put in their opinion to change the outcome of the plot.

II: How do I Role Play?


In order to role play, you simply need a character of your own to force your control over, a role play thread to act out the character's role in, an another member to participate in the role play with. Without another member to participate in the story with you, the role play is considered a fan fiction.

When entering a new role play thread, be sure to check the first page. The first post in role play threads generally contain a description of the role play setting, a template you need to fill out in order to create a character, and any team rules the team chief(s) have felt necessary to introduce into the role play. If you are the creator of said role play, please be sure to put all of these details into the first post so that the members of the role play can interact in the proper manner. Take note that role playing in a thread is a privilege given to you by the team chief, not a right. The creator of the role play (Generally the team chief) can remove you from the role play at any given time.

The styles of role playing differ greatly, though it doesn't really matter which style you use, as long as the point you're trying to make in the role play is made clear enough for all to understand. The two most common are what I like to refer to as "Action and Text", and "Story Style". Each will be explained to the best of my ability in the following paragraphs.

Action and Text - This form of role playing is exactly as it suggests. The parts of the post are broken up into two different sections, one section that shows the action of the character, and one section that shows the dialogue of the character. When using this style, you use asterisks (*) to show action by putting whatever form of action you want in between a pair of these asterisks. Example: *Sam slowly gets to his feet and begins walking down an old dirt path*. To show the dialogue of a character, you simply contain what they say in quotations (" "). Note that it's highly suggested that you put the character's name that's speaking at the time before the quotations so that others will be aware. Example: Sam-" Well I saw no reason to sleep all day. It's bad for your health.". Use both of these together in posts to act out your character's role in the role play. An important note with this style would be to use italics as a form of showing your character's thought. When your character needs to think out something in their minds, simply do the same as you would with normal dialogue, but italicize it.

Story Style - This form of role playing is more of what you would see in any book you read. It takes a bit more thought, but the outcome of it is a bit higher quality of role playing than the 'Action and Text' style. To use this, you simply do as your English teachers told you and use text and dialogue in the same sentences. Example: As Sam walked through the barren woods right outside of his family's house, he couldn't help but say to himself, "What an odd day this has come to be."

III: Suggestions


In this section, you will find all the tips and tricks to being the best role player you can be. Follow any of these helpful hints and you'll find your role playing experience a great deal more fun for not only yourself, but everyone participating the the role play with you.

Act sensible - When participating in a role play, do not go around acting like a complete moron all of the time. The point of a role play is to act a role you wouldn't normally have the opportunity to act out in real life. It's no fun when the entire story is a comedy act; give it some real feeling some of the time so it's at least half believable.

Put yourself into the character - Seeing as the characters you create are alternate identities, it's suggested that you put part of your personality into them so that you may be able to give the character a correct response to situations and 'Feel as they feel', if putting it roughly. If you put part of your personality into the character, the connection to the character will be all the more 'Real' and your experiences in the role play will be better. If you don't have any connection to the character you have power over, then it's doubtful you'll be able to give the best response to a situation when one arises. The role play will feel more like a chore than something meant to be fun.

Show submission - It's honestly no fun when everyone in the role play is able to take a hit and not even flinch at it. If your characters have weaknesses, then the possibilities of situations are far greater than those when the characters are immune to just about everything. There is no shame in having a character that can't do much in a role play aside from assist others. In fact, it actually builds on the realistic level of the role play.

Be detailed - When writing out a post, be sure to include as much detail in it as you possibly can. When this is done, it's easier for others to respond to you and it makes the story all the better, opening up more possibilities in the role play. If everyone were to continually post something short, it would eventually lead to the death of a role play. In short, just put something worth reading. If you can't contribute to the story at hand, or make a new one off to the side, then there's no real point in even posting.

Use your vocabulary - In a role play, the best people are generally the ones with the vast vocabulary. They're able to get the point across and make sure it's done in a manner that everyone can understand. Use compound sentences, use large words, do just about anything to make your post as long as possible.

Don't God mod/remote control - God modding is forcing your control over something in which you do not own and should not have any power over. If there's another character in the role play, and you want them to do something, the most you can do is signal or give slight hints as to what happens. Say you want someone else's character to notice something in the setting around them, but you don't know how to go about getting them to notice. Do NOT go and say that their character does something to notice it, but rather use a third party and take control over the object you're wanting them to see. Since no one controls the third party, you're free to do anything you want with it.

Do not be repetitive - When in a role play, it becomes boring if someone constantly posts the same type of thing over and over again. If you're not bringing something new to the table, then there's no way that the role play can advance regarding the plot.

Don't be a follower - The whole point of a role play is to interact with others. Don't wait on others to do something or tell you what to do, make an effort to create your own story and add onto that of others. Even the best of stories will run aground if everyone is letting only one person do the majority of the role playing. If at all possible, try to be one of the people that bring the most to the table.

Don't hijack the plot - If someone's currently doing a story, then let them do it. There's no need for you or anyone else to come in and either completely ruin things or make an entirely new story, thus ripping the first one to shreds. It's not all that hard to just wait your turn and develop the idea you have while you wait.

Spread your characters out - Normally, people will have multiple characters while participating in a role play. It's highly recommended that you spread out all of your characters and use as many as you can at one time. This way, you'll be able to interact with multiple other role players at a time and new stories will have the chance to develop. Do not just constantly use the same character all the time, and never develop your others. It'll just bring down the quality of the fun in the role play.

Do not ego trip - Ego tripping is defined as constantly role playing with yourself an no one else. The whole purpose of a role play is to interact with others and create a story, thus, staying to yourself defeats the whole purpose of a role play and destroys so many possibilities. It's not all that hard to just have a small conversation with someone else's characters, if not partake in an action with them.

Do not constantly post profanities - When someone constantly cusses or uses rude terms, it just makes that person sound childish. There's no need for it, and it honestly takes out the shock value when a character actually does cuss. Only use it when felt it's truly needed or right for the time.

Show love, not romance - The last thing we need is a romance party in the role plays here. It's fine to show love, and it's actually encouraged, but excessive romance will be the death of a role play. If needed, I'll explain the difference between love and romance. Love is a bond between two or more characters; a connection shown that proves the characters are cared for. Examples would be a father loving his daughter/son/wife, or the love an old person would show someone younger than them that they respect. Romance, on the other hand, is something two characters show each other that involves actual physical connection through the love. Examples of this would be excessive dating, kissing, always holding hands, or even intercourse. Avoid, if at all possible.

Don't form dependency - Dependency is when you feel a character can't exist or even participate in the role play without another being there beside him/her/it. Make a character connect with all others, not just one. If one character is married or in love with another, that's great, but don't have that character spend all their time with the other. Have them interact with characters they wouldn't normally come into contact with. Dependency is the gateway to role play death.

Don't over complicate things - While it's fine to make an elaborate story, it's just a bad idea if you're the only one that can understand it. Make things simple enough for everyone in the role play to get, so that they'll feel welcome in the story and actually want to partake in it. If the main plot of a role play is overcomplicated, then you're just looking at a thread getting ready to circle the drain.

All the best luck to everyone participating in the role plays, have fun.
