When it comes to RPing, there are many rules and disciplines.

Okay, not really, but some habits in RPing can help things run smoothly, or hinder its progression. Here's a little help for people who are new to RPing and a nice, little refresher for the veterans.


-Each post should be in third person. As in, someone should write "She walked away." Instead of "I walked away."

-People get really annoyed by bad grammer, spelling, punctuation, etc....So try to avoid that. If it helps, try writing the post on Microsoft word before putting it into the RP. Firefox Mozilla has spellcheck, I believe

-If you have something to say aside from the RP, put in double parentheses: (()). It keeps things organized. But with that being said, try not to stray away from the RP too much. Post it in the spam or chat topics instead.

-For the love of all things holy, DON'T GOD MODEL! Please, it's boring to have an all-powerful character who's perfect and amazing. Give them faults. Quirks. ANYTHING to make them interesting.

-Try not to make your character the center of attention constantly. Let other people have their moment to make their characters shine. Everyone will get their turn.

-Don't kill, maim, or RP another person's character without their permission. It's very rude and people don't appreciate it.

-Try to avoid one-liners.

- Don't forget to be creative and use your imagination- the best RolePlays come when they're imaginative.

Happy Roleplaying!

-RedPath (RP) and Rae

message 18: by Ingrid (new)

Ingrid I don't know how to whistle *Hangs head* I've been trying since I was little, but I've never been able to whistle.


message 19: by RedPath, The worst Mod. EVER. (new)

RedPath | 850 comments Mod

Whistling is overrated anyway XD


message 20: by Ingrid (new)

Hannah | 2744 comments Mod

*eaderly awaits results*

Oh if you want another weird fact, I'm right handed but I can only snap with my left hand


message 23: by Ingrid (new)

Ingrid I can't snap with either hand. I'm a non-whistling, non-snapping gansta'.

Mandy  Harmon (mandyharmon) I can't either. I've tried though.


message 27: by Ingrid (new)

Ingrid There are more non-whistlers then I knew. And people make fun of me here at home... HMPH!


message 28: by Katerina (new)

Katerina (klymene) | 1209 comments i learned to whistle over porridge


message 29: by Siareen (new)

Siareen | 1412 comments hahah i can whistle!!!! nanannanan!!!!!!!!! lol :)
but i only learnt how to snap last year...


message 30: by Ingrid (new)

Ingrid *Unsheathes sword*
Siareen! Dare you say the nanas to my face? Hmm? I challenge you to a duel to the dust.


message 31: by Katerina (new)

Katerina (klymene) | 1209 comments Dust? I learned to snap in 1st grade. It was a very interesting story. A girl in my class was kinda anti-social and a trouble maker, and her name was (not for real) Brittany. It was right before story time (lol, I wish I still had that) when she started teaching the boys to snap. "All you have to do is rub your two fingers together and slide them against each other" She said. And that's when I learned to snap. I didn't like Brittany.


message 32: by Ingrid (new)

Ingrid I was referencing a book called Crown Duel.
I'm kinda anti-social... But I don't think I'm a trouble-maker. Last time I checked, I wasn't.
Good for you, you can snap. *Claps half-halfheartedly* Why does everyone feel the need to gloat?

Yep! Give credit to me and Rae, though.


message 34: by Katerina (new)

Katerina (klymene) | 1209 comments Thanx!
I'm definitly not gloating. I was just telling what I thought was a funny story


message 35: by Ingrid (new)

Ingrid I know, I just like to accuse you of gloating :D It runs in my family.


message 36: by Katerina (new)

Katerina (klymene) | 1209 comments lol


message 37: by Siareen (new)

Siareen | 1412 comments oh, i dare!!!!!!!

nananna! *stick out tongue and blows a rasberry*

message 38: by Ingrid (new)

Ingrid Umm, the line "Duel to the dust" is said by Mel in Court Duel. It is when she got drunk.


message 39: by Siareen (new)

Siareen | 1412 comments oh. lol, and throws up all over Tamaras? carpet and Savona has to carry her out. or was it Vindaric?
dont remember those words though..


message 40: by Ingrid (last edited Mar 10, 2011 11:37AM) (new)

Ingrid It was Savona. I have the book right here. I'll copy that part down.

Even farther away was Tamara's voice. "Did you really fight a duel to the death with our late king?"
"It was more of a duel to the-" I felt the room lurch as I stood up.
That was a mistake.
"A duel," I repeated slowly, "to-" I wetted my lips again. "To-burn it! I actually had a witty saying fer onsh... once. What's wrong with my mouth? A duel to the dust!" I giggled insanely, then noticed that no one else was laughing. I blinked, trying to see, to explain.


message 41: by Siareen (new)

Siareen | 1412 comments lol, i remember now!!!!!!!! haha, duel to the dust because she fell... quite a duel it was. did it last two blows or three? lol.
