Post subject:  Welcome to the Roleplaying Forums!

Hi, I'm Azunara. I'm the not-quite-a-mod-more-your-friendly-neighborhood-spiderman-esque person. I don't have full mod powers anywhere but the RP forums, and even then I'm limited. (Seriously, I can sticky, move threads, lock threads...stuff like that.)

That said, my whole purpose in life is to make your life here easier. Hence the welcome. Anyways, to be on task, I'm giving you some tips on how to start RPing.

Okay. So you want to RP here. First of all, what you want to do is read the following threads:

-So You Want To Roleplay? A Q/A By Azu
-Roleplaying, Conflict and You: Another Guide by Azu
-A Little Guide on Roleplaying, A Guide by Karathyriel
-General RP Rules, by Golden.
-One of our forum goers here also place a suggestion. Don't do what this guy does.

Once you've read those threads, you've gotten a quick and dirty course on what Roleplaying is. From there, I recommend you do either of the following:

-Hop into one of the current RPs! Read at least the last 10-20 pages so you have a basic understanding of characters and who's who. Then, feel free to ask around some of the RPers for more info. Post a thread asking if your character concept meshes well enough. There are sign-ins for both current RPs, ask there.

-Or, start your own! I'd love to see more RPs in this forum. It's as easy as putting up a sign in thread and then putting up your actual RP thread. Give some background, some IC background, plot, etc. See a few of the current RPs for examples, if you're stumped.

Other Things to Know:

There's a fine line between this forum and creative writing. If I had to distinguish the difference, I would say character stories, backgrounds, ideas, and lore questions go here. Taming stories and taming projects go in creative writing. They tend to blur, though, so really you can stick your stories in either and it won't matter to much. Use common sense. Typically, a lore question or a RP would go in here, and a project for pet taming or themes would go in Fan Art/Creative Writing.

Questions or comments? Put them in this thread or feel free to PM me or Mania or the other mods. We (Well, I speak for myself, mostly.) won't bite. ;)

Because ... well ... I can post here, I'd like to ask;

Can users make their own guides to do with RP, or such related, here? I'd love to make a few guides and a 'what the picky people want' thread :D. I have typical knowlledge, and I'd love to help those who are new to RP.
