What Is Roleplaying?

Here are some guidelines on how to roleplay. First, let's ask a simple question- what is roleplaying? Roleplaying is acting as a character, in existence or made up, and interact with other characters.

Now, I'll teach you how to roleplay. Basically, when you're roleplaying, you should imagine you're writing the final draft of a story that's about to be published. When your character, or another character, is talking, it should be in quotations. Using correct spelling and grammar is a must. And you should be writing like you're writing a novel, too: your character is the first person narrator. For example, I might say, in a post:

Maxie wrote:
Quote :
I walked into Mr. Malina's classroom to see him in the middle of a lesson. "My bad!" I said, not really caring.
And then he might say:

Mr. Malina wrote:
Quote :
"It's okay, Miss Ramirez. Have a seat, IN THE FRONT!" I replied, irritated that she didn't care enough to even SOUND it.

Powerplaying:

Something you shouldn't do is powerplaying. Powerplaying is when you take control of another character. This can be very aggravating, especially if the person does something annoying. For example:

Maxie wrote:
Quote :
Mr. Malina said, "SIT DOWN." I was mad that he would yell at me like that, "TAKE. A. SEAT." He repeated.

Out of Character:

There's no way to tell whether you're adding something to your post that's out of character, so the inventors of the online roleplay made up Out Of Character, or OOC. You can use OOC to suggest what to do to the other person, to comment on something, or basically anything. Here's an example of a roleplay with OOC:

Maxie wrote:
Quote :
I walked to my seat and sat down. Then I realized why should I sit? Maybe I wanna stand.
OOC: Maxie sits, then stands back up...Eying Mr. Malina.

Length of Posts:

I hate it when people do really short posts, like:

Maxie wrote:
Quote :
I get mad.

Maxie wrote:
Quote :
I stand.


Maxie wrote:
Quote :
I laugh.



And so on... and it gets quite boring to read. Please put some effort into your posts; if you're going to post like that, combine it all into one post. I'm not saying your post has to be lecture-long, just make it interesting to read.

I hope you have an enjoyable time roleplaying! Any questions? Post them below!
