Role playing

Recommended Posts

Well, this forum doesn't get a lot of activity, I know its had its spurts here and there, that tavern thread wasn't to bad a little while back, yet things died down a lot recently.

 

I'm curious how many people ever come to check these forums? And how many of those would consider being part of a bit of role playing? I know there was an attempt to begin a dark warlock role play, I'm unsure if that is still in the works or what the results were for getting people to be a part of that.

 

I do know that I for one was heasitant to attempt to be a part of that because I think I'm a crappy role player and haven't done it in quite a long time. Yet I would be interested in seeing some threads similar to, or even more complex than, that tavern one be started on these forums.

 

There was a slow small response to that ressurected introduce your character thread, proving that there are a few that do indeed read these forums. And perhaps there are more out there like me, that are interested, but not quite sure how to get some role play going.

 

So... who's out there? and who would be willing to be a part of some role playing? (if anyone :))

 

And in response to my own inquiry, incase anyone is curious. I for one would love to be a part of a bit of role playing, if something could be started, plain and simple perhaps to start, again something like that tavern thread perchance. In order to draw in a few role players... and then perhaps something a bit more, epic :)

So there are at least a few RPers out there, great to know :)

 

I'd say give this thread a bit longer though, see how many more might be out there. Then maybe we could all work on starting a fun and somewhat simple RP here on the forums :)

I'm up for something that is kind of informal and lets me be me. I like to spend most of my EL time actually in the game, and otherwise, I'm off doing RL stuff, so I can't necessarily be available to act out a set story unless it plays out in a single day/night. But an informal thing, like an in-character tavern hang-out, where we can talk in character, run little side dramas, whatever -- I'd be happy to try that out.

 

I mostly read ;)

My english is not so good ...

Hehe, don't let that put you off. If you read English forums/posts, you should know that a lot of native English speakers have bad English, too. A curse upon all text messaging. :D

Well the problem is when i try to write something i run out of words :P ... Or at least i don't know if the phrase i wrote is meaningful :hug:

But i started reading books in English so i hope it will get better :hug:

Hmm, well it appears the Role playing forum is almost as inactive as I thought :rolleyes:

 

Well, Melisande, Sparhawk, Peino, and Groomsh(?) I think we should try a little roleplaying and perhaps we can pick up a few more people :medieval:

 

What peino mentioned

Was basically what I had in mind. A casual, no exact direction, somebody just start it off here in the forums and we can all add as we want roleplay. You guys all game for that? :D

Peino Ereonis, Scion of Ereon, is down with that. :D I'll keep a weather eye out for a new RP thread. For the next week and a half, I have RL things to do and may come and go a bit spottily, but it will be nice to have a place where I can speak in "my own voice" (IC).

 

Maybe before starting a new thread, we can float some ideas about setting?

That sounds like a good idea... did you have something in mind?

I'll think about it over the weekend. I'm partial to using real game locations.

As am I :confused:

 

Emerald Valley came to mind for me, seems like something more interesting could happen there as opposed to a lazy town like Sedicolis City.

I'm pretty much down for this.

 

Ah, the days when Valarukar (guildie, left mysteriously months ago) and I would spend hours on channels discussing a new Selain-murder based RP. We only ever did the first chapter, and that was back when I just reached teleport to range level, some ~16 levels ago ;)

 

If you're ever hosting -- send me a PM. I'm usually on, working on my summoning, attempting to conceal my horridly bad attributes, making poor conversation which lasts for about three lines, among other ennuyeux things :whistle: .

I was more thinking something forum based rather than ingame :)

 

That allows for us all to participate as we see fit, without the obligation of needing to be around at the same time. I'd love to try out some RPing ingame, but its just so difficult to get everyone on at the same time and not busy with other things :(

:( As a sea elf, I'm sad that those are not port towns. :)

 

Though it lacks its own port, EVTR is well connected (Irsis, Idaloran, Kusamura, Willowvine), has lots of local activity (mining, hunting, fighting, trading) and can be imagined as a caravan route/town-in-development. And it's close enough to my "home town" of Irsis that I tend to treat it as an extension of my home territory.

 

Portland is also a well connected map (DP, GP, TG, WS, MM) with a nice little tavern and lots of business and activity for us to imagine about and play off from. Plus it has boats! :)

 

 

EDIT PS: When it comes to in game RP, I think it works best if you just talk in character in the game, regardless of what you happen to be doing. I think it would work if you're doing a group project, like hunting down monsters or acting out a duelists' vendetta or a team "quest" for a god, etc. But maybe not planned -- just if some of us want to do such a project/adventure, we do it "in character."

Hmm, I like the idea of Portland, I see more potential for some fun RPing with that as a setting :(

 

I think we should just kick things off and see where it goes, and just have fun :)

If you have an idea of how to start things go for it! :)

 

I was trying to think of how exactly to start, but was at a loss :(

I'll start:

 

An Elf, A Dwarf, and a Draegoni walk into a tavern. The Draegoni has a rabbit on her head. They all walk up to the bar and the tavernkeeper says...

 

*hands RP off to Enly* ;)

 

:)

 

But seriously, it could start that simply -- one of us walks into PL tavern, to eat some dinner, drink an ale, maybe waiting for someone... Maybe start it with your own story in mind -- like the story of your day or what you just did before walking in, etc -- then each of us who enters (when we enter) has a similar story of where we just were or where we're going next. [ EDIT: We don't have to tell our stories up front, of course, but just have them in mind for how we'll react to what we find in the tavern.] The person who starts the thread could include a description of the PL tavern to set the scene that we'll all play off from. I'd volunteer to do it, but I have commitment issues, and I've been obsessing over details so much lately, I'm afraid I'd never stop editing the first post (EDIT: like I just edited this post). :D

hmm, ok. Well I might just start it then if there are no objections? look for another thread soon after this post, I'll see what I can think of.

 

Unless aphis objects before I start :)

 

-edit-

Ok, I started a new thread, somebody go post :D
