RP etiquette (PLEASE READ)

Post  Tirus on Mon Jul 12, 2010 8:19 am

It has come to my attention that there have been some problems with rp etiquette within the guild and god moding. I want to bring some attention to this before it becomes a big problem that will cause people to shy away from the guild, because it will. I will be posting a few points for people to remember as they post. I know that this is basic knowledge but I really want to insure that we follow it so we can function better as a community and have some basic ground rules on our rp.

1. Allow others to post responses
Do not take control of other peoples characters at any point unless you have permission from that characters player. This applies mainly to combat and how characters are going to respond to attacks or actions of both NPCs and other characters. It is not restricted to this though, people know how their characters are going to respond to certain actions or words, let them be the judge of that.

2. God moding/Limits
This I think is going to be a problem during the game no only for our guild but for many others. Jedi are not all powerful and can be taken down by soldiers, bounty hunters, smugglers, and even street rats. If you are an initiate or padawan you will be killed by a Sith Lord. If you are a knight, you will most likely be killed by a Sith Lord. Non force users are no exempt from this, careful with calling in air assaults too much or being able to shoot missiles and kill everyone around you.

Right now those are two of the pressing issues that we are having, I will be editing this post in the future to point out a few others things. Feel free to send me a message if you think there is something that I can add or that needs to be addressed.

I posted a 'How to Roleplay' thread. Would you like me to delete it and add it to this thread?

These are instructions on how to create a well written RP. RPing stands for Role Playing.
RPing is where you create a character and then Role Play, having your character interacting with others.

Step Number 1

Create your character. For different sites, the requirements will vary. However, there are some basic information on character creation:

-Make your character's bio detailed! If there is anything that can be elaborated on, do it!

-Make your character believable. Nobody likes a perfect character or a Mary Sue or Gary Stu. Make your character of any species , and you will have so much more fun, however, give them unique quirks so that they are interesting.

-Most Character Sheets require a history. Here, you need to explain, explain, explain. Include everything you can think of, don't skip things to save time. Include descriptions of parents, places where character grew up etc.

Step Number 2

Start RPing. If you are on a good RP site, there should be absolutely no text talking! Use full sentences and good punctuation and grammar.
Use quotation marks when your character is talking. Otherwise many people get annoyed and you are made to look silly.

-Never post one-liners! This is usually just one sentence of what your character is doing. Posting dialogue is not an excuse for a one-liner. The people who you roleplay with may not like it at all. The occasional one-liner is fine (barely) but do not make it a habit to where everyone else has the brunt of the roleplay. You are there too, so make the attempt to write longer posts.

-Use description! Don't just say "Luke walked into the room and sat down on a chair" Where is Luke? What does the room look like? How did he walk in? How did he sit down? How was he feeling? What was he thinking as he walked in? Where had he just been? You need to think of all these questions whenever you RP. Instead, you could say something like, "Luke briskly walked into the waiting room at the doctors office, wrinkling his nose at the sickeningly strong smell of antiseptic. He glanced at the medical posters on the walls, and the magazines by the hard backed chairs lining the walls. He went, and quickly sat down in one of the uncomfortable plastic chairs, folding his ankles properly." Now do you see what you're aiming for?

TIPS!

-RPing may seem like hard work, but you can really get into it and have a lot of fun. Following my suggestions above will help you have a great time, and make others on your RP quickly appreciate you.

-Don't be afraid of adding too many details. The more details, the better off the roleplay will be. But don't add too much detail about one thing unless it is the main subject.

-No one liners. They do nothing to advance the story. Most people do not like them as they do nothing for the roleplay, unless your thread starter says that one liners is okay, always assume if it is not mentioned that one liners are not permitted. They are allowed if you are just talking of course.

WARNINGS!

Don't god mod: God-modding is when you control someone else's character. For example, if you said, "Luke briskly walked into the waiting room at the doctor's office, dragging Chewy beside him. Both of them wrinkling their nose at the antiseptic smell. He glanced at the medical posters on the walls, and the magazines by the hard-backed chairs lining the walls. He went, and quickly sat down in one of the uncomfortable plastic chairs, folding his ankles properly. He watched Chewy walk up to the pretty nurse at the front desk and talk to her." Here, you are not only controlling the character of Luke, but the the character of Chewy. This makes it hard for others to RP, and should almost never be done.

Godmodding can also be:

-Dodging everything that is thrown at you without reason. Ex: *dodges* or "My shield is unbreakable; I'm immortal"

-DO NOT get sick ALL THE TIME. People will end up trying to avoid you and stop wanting to role-play with you. Only make your character sick a reasonable amount of the time. Sickness is not interesting after you've acquired the "WORST AND DEADLIEST DISEASE" 500 times in the past year. Just...no.

-Make sure that if you are a baby who should have no teeth, you aren't talking, walking or running unless you're about the age of 2 or 3.

-Do not attack anything randomly or say "That's what she said" it gets really annoying after a while.
