I'm copying this from the website www.gaiaonline.com and I am editing it where I see fit. I will be writing some articles on my own, but, many of what you see here will be from gaia or other websites.

PostSubject: Roleplaying Vocabulary   Sat Oct 13, 2007 7:09 pm

Roleplaying Vocabulary

* Roleplay : To assume the role of. Example: I am roleplaying a knight. I am pretending to be a knight.

* RP : An abbreviation of the word Roleplay. Example: I'm going to RP for a bit.

* Profile : A character sheet depicting the qualities and information about a certain character such as name, gender, inventory, powers, etc. Example: Name: --- / Age: --- / Appearance: --- ...

* Out-Of-Character : To talk out of one's role; to assume one's true role rather than one that is being roleplayed. Commonly is surrounding by symbols such as (()), [], and abbreviated as OOC. Example: ((Drat, my keyboard is a mess.))

* IC : In Character (i.e. To resume the role I was rping as.)

* God Moding : RPing IC, ignoring all rules of roleplay, making character a super-being who can't die.

* Storyline : Every RP has a story in it...read the first page of every RP you're going to participate in before jumping in.

* Closed RP : A close RP means that it is restricted for ONLY the users that were invited. It's best not to disrupt other RPs that you're not involved with.

Open RP : An open RP means it's open to anyone.

* RP Rules : Every RP made by different users has their own set of RP rules, please follow them to avoid embarrassment.

* Stock Characters : These are characters that already exist in a television show, game, or manga that you adapt and use for your own role play.

A character profile is a description of your character that helps you remember things about them and, when you post them in an RPG you are going to join, tells the other players a lot about your character. A lot of people use the profile you submit to help them determine whether to let you into the RP or not.

Sometimes, if your profile isn't long enough and you didn't put enough work into it, you will be rejected from an RP. There are also a lot of RPGs that don't really care about a character profile. Some roleplays like to find out information about characters from certain events, and not have it all listed in a profile.

A basic character list is as follows:

Name:
Age:
Appearance:
Personality:

For most roleplays, the creator will post a character list skeleton, and demand that the players fill it out, and mail it to them.

Okay, normally for 'literate' roleplays, you are required to write only intro's in paragraph form. I think though, for this, it would be best if everybody first wrote out a list description, then followed by a short paragraph.

When in a roleplay, posts should be spell-checked before being posted. This way, it is easier for the people who are reading the post to understand what the poster means. Also, in a literate roleplay, if a person is constantly misspelling words, or using fragmented sentences, they will be asked to leave.

PostSubject: Re: Roleplaying Guide   Mon Dec 24, 2007 11:25 pm

When in character, actions and thoughts are important! Thoughts should be put into italics, and actions should be written out. NEVER should actions be inside asterisks.

For example, this is an incorrect post:

I like music! girl sad. *walks to piano* Ill play som music girl said. *Bagins to pley* *plays sang by (artist) on piano*

It should be obvious as to why this is incorrect. It is difficult to read, and what is more, it is misspelled.

A correct post using the same idea should be formated as such:
"I like music!" The girl said, and walked over to the piano in the room. She viewed the sheet music on the piano, and decided that she would preform a song.
"I'll play some music" She said to the occupants of the room, and sat down on the stool. Her fingers floated up and down the keys and it soon became obvious that she was playing a song by the artist ______.

How about we start a mini roleplay in the Rules, so other people will have an idea of what to do?

you are welcome! It's great! But, maybe later on, depending on what other people write, I may ask you to rewrite the history! Is that okay?
