*silence fills the universe* Well, if you're new... ((and under the age of 12))
Roleplaying is when you take on a character's personality to sort-of write a story about them. we do it for fun to work out stress and what not. Roleplaying has taken on such forms as Dungeons and dragons (pretending to be an elf[orwhatnot] in a mythical world ages ago, D20 modern(pretending to be a half cyborg[or what not] in modern day settings, and has also developed school uses, such as in Drama class and english, when your teacher has you stand and address the class as a character from a play or novel.

*inhales* does that clear it up?

Well, the point of roleplaying is to have fun, therefore, yes, it is a sort of game.

The only real structures we follow are set in the roleplaying rules and generally not being a jerk-off to everyone in your thread. And at least daily posting. Daily posts equal happiness.

Well, there are some rules, and then there are some unwritten rules. Here's a mix of both.

- When RPing, don't say "I" or "me" when talking about your character. He/she may say that in dialogue, but not when you're just talking about what's going on. Say your characters name. It helps people remember who your character is, and it just tends to sound better.

EXAMPLE:
Bad - I walked into the room, and sat in the chair.
Good - Thomas Allgood walked into the room, and sat in the chair.

- Don't RP someone else's character unless A) you have permission, or B) it's something so insignificant that it wouldn't matter, like saying that they laughed at a joke, or something. Unless asked to, never RP someone else's character as speaking or fighting. That will instantly piss them off.

- Good grammar. Everyone loves people with good grammar, and silently hates those who don't.

There are other rules, but these are just some of the big ones in my opinion. Really, if you read the rules that RaiRai put up, it gives you a good idea of how things work around here.

Generally, you'd want to RP in the Third-Person point of view, so it's easier on the other players, regardless of name and whatnot. However, you can refer to your character with "I," "me," etc. when he/she is speaking, thinking, etc.

There is no limit, as long as you can keep your commitment to all of the RPs you join. I'd recommend 3 at a time as a personal maximum, but that's just me...

If you want to bump your post but don't wanna double-post, copy the text in the post, delete it (the post), then repost the pasted stuff.
Net Result? Same post, but your thread is at the top of the list where everyone can see and remember.

Default Trolling.....

Hello, I am new to this forum.

I have read this entire thread (I hope I didn't miss a page!), and I noticed there was mention of trolling. I don't quite follow - that is to say, what is trolling, exactly? There was a link to a definition of it, but I'm afraid the link did not seem to work for me.

Thanks you so much in advance,
