RP Tips and Guides

Post  Admin (HalcyonWandering) on Thu Jun 14, 2012 2:04 am

I found a (very impressive) RP board by the name of Survival of the Fittest and would like you all when given the chance to look through thier tips to successful RPing. I think it will benefit all of us.

http://s10.zetaboards.com/SOTF_V2/forum/47041/

And one in particular that I would like EVERYONE to read that is about a subject we deal with rather frequently here, God-modding.

http://s10.zetaboards.com/SOTF_V2/topic/602380/1/#new

This is IMPORTANT. I really would like everyone to look at this.

...*Reads*...
...
...
...*Malfunction*...Uzzzghghezhhzhhh...
*Reboot*
...*Ahem* That was a lot of information to take in. I guess the big difference is that over here, we DON'T strive for realism in a lot of cases. Still, unrealistic characters and lack of reation to injury is a bad thing. Of course, our characters aren't being kidnapped from high school and thrown onto a deserted island to fight to the death.

Admin, you got permission for this first, right? I'm just checking. I've been surprised before.

I've actually been doing a lot of reading on this and I was actually going to PM you bob about this just today XD but yeah, GMing is something I've noticed throughout TITAL, though not so much in more recent days.

Just read the godmod post, and man do I wish I could smack this one gamefaqs person with it till it is imprinted onto his eyelids. I try to turn Roland into a clavat from Crystal Chronicles so I could join a rp on a board, and this "dreamsaber" fellow feels that it is necessary to take control of characters or current plot at any time.

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/914433-final-fantasy-crystal-chronicles/62848242?page=19

Is just his latest attempt.

Sorry, I just needed to vent.

O_o ...Hell, that goes beyond Godmodding. That's piracy, dammit.

What Nebula said.

That isn't really godmodding, that's something on a new level entirely...That's just complete character hijack. I mean to say...godmodding is when you just decide to tell someone that their character got hit, or that their character did not get hit. That is character hijacking, writing an entire post for somebody else. It is also really, really stupid.

If anything pissed me off, it was the idea of Roland even being surprised by a plant coming out. Seriously? Even if this isn't the same Roland, that just isn't right. "Hard to tell which was more surprised" my ass.

Not even so much the surprised as the "Hard to tell". I don't think I've ever seen Roland surprised, angry, jealous, embarrassed, or any other such thing. I suggest you:

1. Find him and kick his ass
2. File a complaint
3. Quit that RP
or 4. Mash the retcon button whenever he does something with someone else's character.

*Rolls up sleeves* ...Well, I could step in. Afterall, it's inaccurate. I can complain that it's- *Cracks neck* -far enough from how Roland acts- *Cracks knuckles* -that it doesn't count as "in-character". ...Er, the other Roland acts like this one, right? Or are there any personality changes?

...Huh. I did something, and it DIDN'T blow up in my face. Somebody actually agreed with me. I was a little worried, but for once, my actions have had a positive effect.

Making a new character? Not sure how to flesh them out after you have their basic personality down? Watch this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKnNO5pxRGQ and then go here http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp to flesh out your character more. This isn't a one hundred percent, end all be all guide, but it really helps.
