Role Play 101

Pull out your pack and head on down to the Prancing Pony for some great Role Playing (try to stay in character)!

Postby erinhue » Mon Oct 01, 2001 8:41 pm

One of my favorite things here at TORC is strapping on a sword and hitting the adventure trail down in The Prancing Pony. Yep Role Play is a big thing with a lot of us and it can be for you too.<BR><BR>Now I been here awhile and I’ve seen’em come and go and never venture a single post in the Pony. They hide out here in Welcome or debate until they’re blue in the face about if Balrog’s have wings (oh no ya don’t I wouldn’t be dragged kicking and screaming back into that one) or examining how many hairs they show growing out of Gandalf’s ears in the latest trailer.<BR>That’s all fine entertainment, if ya like it, so are quilting circles.<BR><BR>Now a lot of folk would like to get out there and slice a few orc necks and fight the good fight against the insidious forces of evil, but they think ya gotta be Tolkien reincarnated or at least David Eddings (shh not here) to get in on the fun. Not true, heck they let me post there so…..<BR><BR>So, you can do it too, all it takes is a little song a little dance a little seltzer down your pants, no no that’s not it but if ya still wanna stick around (and are prepared to pay the phenomenal nominal fee) I’ll show ya the ropes and I am sure some of the other characters down there will be glad ta add their 25 cents(inflation) as well.

First things first, get yourself a character. Now if you're calling yourself something your mamma didn't you already got a start. Just take it further. Who is that person with your screen name. Maybe you know, maybe you just liked that particular name or maybe after 89 tries that was the first combination of letters that didnt get thrown back in your face.<BR><BR>Whatever now your stuck with the name ( unless ya ask Ted or Jon reeeeeeal nice)so what kind of person goes with it? Elf, Hobbit, just plain folks or the Grand Wizard Archemedies doesn't matter just when ya pick one try to stick with it for a while.<BR><BR>You can stop at that or try to take it further, fill out the character, perhaps think on what sort of background they might have, or dive in full blown psycho and figure it out down to the color of his/her grandmother's hair. (I can tell ya what Erinhue has in his pockets)<BR><BR>The point is to give it some thought and live with that guy/gal for a bit so you can think how they might react to various situations. <BR><BR>

Ok all the checks cleared so we can continue. I am pleased to see some of ya showed up in costume, that's the spirit we're looking for.<BR><BR>Now before we go any further I need to tell you that all Role Play threads are not alike. Yep, take notes there are differences.<BR><BR>There are Parties, various Inns, Taverns and Tea Rooms, the one and only Butterfly Garden and the usual miscellaneous threads and then ya got your "serious story" threads.<BR><BR><BR>We'll start with the Butterfly Garden as it is unique. Read the opening of the thread and that will give you the idea. The garden is a nice quiet place, quite beautiful really, with pleanty of space and hidden nooks that will accomodate any climate and local of any kind that will promote repose, rest and reflection. No fighting allowed or we will immediately feed you to the Boys in Black to wreck their evil but justly deserved punishments upon you.<BR><BR>Here you can think those quiet thoughts or sit beside a brook after a tough campaign and heal or watch a sunset, have a lover's tryst or even post a nice poetic song without paying Guild fee's to the Bards. Go have a look and you will quickly understand why the Butterfly Garden is so precious to us and why we dont want it disturbed. <BR><BR>

Ah...RPG's!<BR><BR>It's main reason I log on to TORC latley, and often!<BR><BR>Here's some of the Key elements to a good RPG thread (aside from great posters!)<BR><BR>1. Treat others with respect. Some people can spell and others can't (like me), go easy on'em. The main thing is that you understand what they are saying.<BR><BR>2. Pay attention to what other posters are saying and doing. Nothing like have someone post having your character fighting demons when in your post he/she had passed out from blood loss during the conflict.<BR><BR>3. If your going to join a thread post on it as often as the other members do. (i know this isnt always possible) Doing this lets everyone know your still around and still interested in the thread.<BR><BR>4. If for whatever reason you have to leave, write yourself out or make arrangements with another member to 'carry you along' while your gone. Nothing like hualing luggage around.<BR><BR>5. NEVER kill another character unless you have permission to do so. Some people put alot of time and thought into creating their character.<BR><BR>6. HAVE FUN!.......thats the whole idea!<BR><BR><BR><BR>I'm sure there are other good rules of thumb to follow........but I'm to tired to think of them right now.

That's the kind of spirit we like to see in the Pony and speaking of that brings us to Parties.<BR><BR>We throw them for everything birtdays, special events in life or on the boards but mostly we throw them to honor someone reaching some sort of post count milestone. It use to be there was a party every time a member reached a new level and/or recieved a new type of shield for the first time like at 100 posts( pink or boobie shield) 500 posts( the green Rohan or horsey shield) and 1,000posts ( the black many pointed Gondor shield with the white tree and stars.( yep that's what it is) Nowadays folks pick an number and throw a party. Hey Im not gonna compain, I'm a bard and scrounging free beers is always easier at a party.<BR><BR>Just like in life some parties are formal affairs and some are wild and crazy times and some are like junior high with everyone standing around waiting for something to happen.<BR><BR>Now you can remain your mundain self and post a simple congratulations for whatever to who ever is being honored or you can join the festivities and if you should find yourself back in the gym at Rivendel Junior High (oh the horror) then take matters into your own hands, don a lampshade and start something. Everybody is just waiting for that first brave someone to get out there and dance. If they dont have any beer (heaven forefend) then BYOBB but keep it legal, we are a family friendly board.<BR><BR>OK class get out there and crack a keg and shake a leg and sally forth or fifth untillnext time. Uncle 'Hue is gonna go see Sally about that fifth and then take a little nap. Next time we go pub crawling.

Ok now boys and girls we're gonna conduct todays class kinda quiet like cause ole Uncle 'Hue's got headache.<BR><BR>I was reminded not to forget the goings on in Alliances and Guilds so we will include them here.<BR><BR>The pubs, inns, taverns, tea rooms etc can be found in the Pony but they also turn up in Welcome and Talk and anywhere else prime unreal estate can be found.<BR><BR>These work pretty much like the real thing. Ya got your regulars and there usually is a proprietor or owner or somthing like that. The doings range from a place for the regulars to touch base, to pseudo chat rooms to having somekind of storyline. Have your character stop on in and buy a drink, chat up the owner or the patrons and see what is going on. If ya like what ya see, stick around and take part. If it's not quite your cup of tea, pay your tab and move on no harm no foul and no reason ya can't drop back when ya feel it.<BR><BR>Next up Guilds and Alliances<BR><BR>

Aside from the choice of alliance flag (or none) that you made when you registered there are other Alliances and Guilds on the boards. These are groups of likeminded people who band together to share their particular interest.<BR><BR>My Long Haul Sister, EntwifeLost has compiled a complete listing of these guilds and alliances in Welcome each with a brief description of their interest or purpose so I wont list them here. Most can be found in the Forum dedicated to them but many are scattered about the boards as well.<BR><BR>There is generally a leader and an established membership, especially the Guilds, and you will see this reflected in the signatures of some members. A few have a closed membership list but most welcome new members, they just differ in how you become one.<BR><BR>Some only require that you post and make your desire to join known to the membership. Others and this includes the Guilds have some sort of membership requirement or initiation that must be passed before membership status is granted.<BR><BR>Again, for some, this entails a simple posted request or show of interest and an acceptance reply. Others are a bit more involved and you must ask about that at the groups that require it. I dont pretend to know about all of them but I can say a bit about the Bard's Guild and the Mithril Knights (the Warrior's Guild.<BR><BR>Each of these guilds have specific requirements and are open to new members at specified times. The Mithril Knight ask for a posting of intent and then you are assigned as Squire to an established member who will show you the ropes and usually set up a mini adventure for you to complete before being inducted as a knight. If you wanna be a Mithril Knight contact Lord Elbren the Guildmaster.<BR><BR>The Bard's Guild (short title)requires a small demonstration to see if ya got what it takes. Posting a poetic ABC's is required after posting your desire to join. At semi regular intervals a thread for this purpose is posted generally in the Pony. Successfully completing this earns you an Apprenticeship and full induction takes place after participating in the next festival or event held by the guild, generally one a month. If ya wanna be a bard contact me, Erinhue.<BR><BR>There is no reason ya can't start your own alliance or guild so long as you are not duplicating the purpose of one that already exists, we dont need no guild wars getting started to frighten the newbies, got it.<BR><BR>Next time boys and girls we get to the heart of the matter, the serious story threads.<BR>

Allright, guys and girls, hi, I've been in RPG for a while now, and let me teach you something about picking fights.<BR><BR> A) If the other person starts it by striking at/mocking you: MAKE SURE that you finish the fight on your terms. If this means making a mile-long post, so be it. If it means being 'magically' revived from an inconveniant blood-loss, so be it.<BR><BR> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-rolleyes.gif"border=0> Never flame a person for their bad writing habits, unless you are their friend, ally, or completely stupid. Teasing is fun. Flaming gets you killed.<BR><BR> C) If you want to fight a person, DON'T! Until you know all of their friends, allies (who will be forced to intervene unless an actuall duel is called), powers, relatives, and both people's lawyers' numbers.<BR> <BR> D) Also, make sure that there are no ghosts, halos, 'shades of the past'(e.g. history of dirty fighting), or demons hanging around them. I'm pretty sure that demon one only applies to me. I'm not kidding. Don't test me!<BR><BR> I hope this all helps. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-devil.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

It's true that some come and go without posting in the Role Playing Forum, but there are some minor role-playing threads in the Alliance and Guild section like the former Kingdom of Frandion thread. But nothing beats a home-cooked roleplay from this forum <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>!<BR><BR>Speaking of role-playing, I was thinking of making a thread for a siege of all alliances in a classic good vs. evil combat. Do you think that that would work, or do wars never really work out?

I think war threads are more difficult to do, if only because it's harder to keep them focused. I think Elbren's Challenge was a particularly successful one; you might check it out. It's the only thread I know of that was actually finished <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>

I'll do that, Asaris. But you've also brought up an interesting point. Usually, threads don't have an ending. They just get deleted because of people losing interest.

I know of only one thread that actually ended with a ride off into the sunset and folks heading safely home to live... well you know the drill. That was Elbren's Challenge, a really great ride<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><BR><BR>OK I figures it was time to bring this one back up once again I shall continue when I got a little time although I am certain someone will jump in along the way with their 25 cents( inflationand cost of living increases included) Class dismissed until next time<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>

Yeah, and Elbren's Challenge is back up again! (As Elbren's Challenge: Mines of Mithril.)<BR><BR>Something else to do when joining a RP thread: Read back at least two pages in the main thread, to get a general idea of what's going on. Or you could post in the OOC thread (if they have one) and ask what's going on. Never hurts to ask if you can join in, too.

(I scrounged up 25 cents from the sofa.)<BR><BR>Here's my opinion on the RPG threads. I am more interested in the writing than the role play. I quite frankly get enough role playing from my kids demanding that I be some Pokemon character and enter the stadium with them. (I usually pick something like Chansey and then argue with them about how I could easily survive their Charizard's Fire Spin and even make a valiant and lethal Scratch attack. They hate having a writer for a dad.)<BR><BR>So I come here to exchange writing. The interplay helps to spark new ideas and keeps me in the muse. I've seen some that take things a little too seriously (IMHO) and that's fine because you have to realize that some people are here for the role play only. The mutual respect thing mentioned a few posts back is critical.<BR><BR>Here's what goes through my mind when writing: The Hero's Journey. I got this from a book by Chistopher Vogler, The Writer's Journey: Mythic Structure for Storytellers & Screenwriters (1992, Michael Wiese Productions.) The journey is a story structure that fits almost every good epic book or movie. Briefly: The Hero starts out in the ordinary world (Tattooine, say) until he recieves a call to adventure ('Come with me to Alderaan') to which he refuses ('That's your uncle talking.') There is a mentor character to meet (Old Ben Kenobi) and an acceptance of the call and crossing of a threshold ('You'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy') that moves the hero into the special world where the adventure takes place. Once there he meets allies (Han Solo) and faces tests ('But with the blast shield down, how can I see anything?') before approaching the inmost cave ('That's no moon, it's a space station'.) There he faces the Supreme Ordeal (Obi Wan loses to Darth Vader) and gains the reward (rescues the Princess.) Then there is the road back with more tests ('They're coming in too fast!') and a transformation, or resurrection if you will, ('Use the Force, Luke') and the reward is used, the day is saved, and the hero is a better person for it.<BR><BR>Apply the journey's structure to just about any story and you'll see the basic framework. It's been used from The Odyssey to The Matrix and it makes for complete storytelling that hits all the mythical tones your audience is expecting without even knowing it.<BR><BR><Clinking of change into the meter>

Hail to ya Beorne. Well the inns and taverns around here are really just other threads. Ya get in just like ya got in to post here. They are good places to start because just like a bar you can be any one and come in and order and check out the action you want to test out a character those are the best places. Come over to the Welcome Forum and check out the Lucky Fortune Inn. Buy me a beer and join in what ever is going on or start something of your own.

Hail Galhadren<BR><BR>I play those daddy games myself so I kinda know what you mean although the Danimal's games haven't progressed beyond "dump the toy bucket" yet.<BR><BR>You are right about that basic Hero/Adventure story formula They say that there are only 20, 12, 7 pick a number, true plots and all stories of a type are hinged on them I believe that the trick and the talent is to use that structure to hang an imagination and wordcraft from to weave a spell for the reader.<BR><BR>It is a little harder to do in these story threads because some are there for the writing, some for the role play, some for both and some who never seem to get a real clue. It is a cooperative effort that can be frustrating to one who wants to write a cohesive tale, But then again, that confusion and cooperation is part of the fun and when I just want to write a story I do that on my own.

Hello everyone. I was very impressed to see that this existed! I will bump this up with an answer of my own to you Beorne. Erinhue ... you have said alot in your first posts and I bow to thee. Well written! I am going to go ahead and write a little myself here so please bear with me if I get long winded or if I repeat what has already been well said!<BR><BR>RP (Role Playing) is a forum where people get together and use their imaginations and writing skills to 'create' a story together. What you would do is log in, choose the Role Playing forum and then click on and read some of the "RP Stories" that are written. (I would suggest choosing one that is not that long!) <BR><BR>The way that was suggested to me when I first came to these boards was to read the thread thoroughly first before you post to it. (This is why I suggest choosing a smaller thread to post to first.) There is always alot of background information in others posts that might be helpful when you are first getting started and posting to a new thread. (This is typical RP courtesy, to know the background of the thread that you are joining.) On the same note, check for an Aside thread of the same name or an OOC thread of the same name. It is also courteous to make your first post there, introducing yourself and your character(s) that you will be writing for and a little history, if you have something in mind. Some don't and that is ok. <BR><BR>Then from there you write. Try to tie in some of the others posts eventually as you are writing but for your initial post, IMHO, it is good to start as a kind of loner and meet up with the group or people of your choice in the thread a few posts down the line. But each person has their own way and thoughts on how to go about this and many time's, the person writes into a story well right off the bat. It is mainly up to the person that is joining. Sometime's you are very comfortable from the first visit. I was not and it took me many posts to go beyond more than a small paragraph or two. As I became comfortable and seemed to find my 'creative side', I started to write longer posts. <BR><BR>Go at your own pace and write from the heart and you will do fine.<BR><BR>Welcome to TolkienOnline! <BR>
