I even have trouble explaining it. To break it down, roleplay is when two or more people get together and each act out a character, creating somewhat of a story on a fourm or thread. WHERE CAN I ROLEPLAY? Many people roleplay on social networking sites, fourms, special rp sites, and even on the Nook. I suggest roleplaying either on the Nook or at a site. A favorite site of mine would be W w w . Warriorcatsrpg . C o m (with no spaces or capitalizations). There, they have chat fourms/threads, and mulitiple rp genres, from Maximum Ride to Warrior Cats and Avengers to My Little Pony. And, if you don't find a roleplay you like, you can always create a thread! WHY DO PEOPLE ROLEPLAY? Most people ask, What's the point? I rp because I enjoy it and can create my own characters. I love to write stories, so when I first came across roleplay, I was interested. HOW DO YOU ROLEPLAY? This may take a while to explain. First, lets set up the rules: 1. You are only allowed to rp your own character, not like this; 'Grayhawk padded up to Fireshard. "Hey, would you like to go hunting?" He asked, then led Fireshard out when he agreed.' The only exception would be if that person had previously posted that thier character did that. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 2. Roleplay is not a chatroom. Some rp sites will have special fourms/threads for chatting. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 3. If you would like to say something that doesn't have to do with your character, you use 'OOC:' (which means out of character). For example; 'OOC: Hi everyone! Sorry I have been inactive. :-)' If you use 'OOC:' before your actual rp post, you put 'IC:' (which means in character) before your rp post. Some rp sites may have different rules, and most people on Nook rp use (( double parenthisis )) as 'OOC:' ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Some sites may have thier own set of rules, but those were just some basic ones. Now lets explore how to roleplay: Ok. Sometimes, a site may have special help threads. So, if you don't find what you need here, join the site I listed above (in WHERE CAN I ROLEPLAY?) and ask there or just ask in the next result. Basically, you roleplay by posting or adding on to the story that has been created in roleplay. So, I will present an example. Ok, lets say you just joined a roleplay, and someone asks you to go hunting with them. You could post something like this; 'Wolfstreak nodded. "Sure, where should we hunt?" He meowed, tingling with excitement.' Then, the other person may post back saying something such as "how about near the tall oak?" Fireshard asked, grinning.' Then you would post, then other people would post, so on, so on. (If you have anymore questions on how to roleplay, let me know!) HOW DO I JOIN A ROLEPLAY? If you find a roleplay you like and want to join, usually on a site there will be a requiered form you must fill out for your character. On Nook roleplay, you will probably just have to ask if you can join, and the leader/starter of the roleplay will accept you and sometimes tell you where to put a form.
