How to RP

There are many times in life where we don’t understand how to do something. Especially in this day and age, where things are constantly changing and new technology is coming out! Well, if you haven’t learned how to roleplay, today is your day! This guide is to help you get started on that journey!

First off, we will need you to think of a character and a character story. That is your first step in A&D surprisingly. Task A is to write your character back-story. A character without a back-story sometimes can become bland because it doesn’t allow the character to build and become better down the road!

Now, you got that, what is next? Well, let’s think about it. Nothing. You can jump into roleplay but wait! There are certain rules and ideas you need to know about! First off, you need to know in character (IC) and out of character (OOC). In character means you are playing your character and Out of Character (OOC) means being yourself. The biggest thing I can stress here is leave things that happen IC in IC and don’t take them OOC. It causes unneeded drama! Also, learning the difference between meta-gaming and god-modding and power-gaming. Meta-gaming is using Out of Character (OOC) information for in character (IC) gain. God-modding is taking over a character without prior permission from the opposite player via RP or via IMs. Power-gaming is having super powers that isn’t realistic. Yes, we do have super powers since we are Angels and Demons, but you still need to be realistic about it. Read more...
