I'm obese, I write fantasy, all my characters have names that relate exactly to what they do and who they are, and I pretend to be like J.R.R. Tolkien. Am I... am I turning into George Martin?

Someone: Unless it's made for adults, only children should watch cartoons . Me: Shut your whore mouth, there's an Amazing World of Gumball marathon coming on!

Nah, I love using nicknames and titles, so long as they actually have something to do with the character. It's only a problem when they clearly just through some random "tough guy" words together.

You gotta love Beowulf. "Giant monster? Can't be harmed by any known weapons? I'MMA PUNCH IT >:D"

Just texted "OMG She's such a bitch". I have officially become a stereotypical teenage girl. Dear gosh, someone save me.


I'm heavily inconsistent with RP types. The only guarantee I will give is that I'll never join a history or military RP.

As for the rest: I've RP'd fantasy, sci-fi, romance, "romance", god RPs, Nation RPs, school RPs, gifted RPs, adventures, action, and so on. The only types I've never tried are history and fandom.

Been doing this for years, obviously. 5 years, I think. I was around in old-guild, plus some other RP sites. Oh, and I always stick to the casual and advanced sections. As soon as one-liners start dropping, so do I.

I love to spend all my time spamming the OOC with irrelevancy, and nothing short of kicking me can ever stop it. I am a dean of double entendres. A patron of poorly-done puns. A miser of memes. A saint of sighs. A... well, you get the idea.

Final note: I try my best to be nice and patient with everyone, since I know how annoying I can be. But if you act like you think you're smarter than everyone else (looking at you, sci-fi and NRP "intellectuals"), whine like a dog when the GM says no, or try to shove your ideas of how the RP should be down other people's throats without being the GM, then I have no problem calling you the incredibly stupid trash that you are. Because if that's how you act, you need to find another hobby: RPing isn't for you. Go away, trash people.

Answer 1. There's an entire section for that: Advanced Roleplaying. Many people there pump out 3 to 6 paragraphs a post. I tend to go for either casual or advanced, and I personally usually do 2 to 5. My record is about 20 paragraphs, but I try to only do as much as is actually necessary. Word count shouldn't be a pissing contest.

Answer 2. Drama is rare overall, but historical and low fantasy RPs often have massive debates about what it historically accurate, and sci-fi RPs sometimes have scientific "discussions" to decide what is plausible to keep it realistic.

Answer 3. I've never seen smut/sex RP, but I've heard of it happening occasionally. Overall, it seems to be rarely ever posted publicly: it's only done in PMs for the sake of site rules. It is a bannable offense, after-all.

Pro-tip: don't tell people you have Asperger's on the internet. Half won't believe you and will claim you just want attention, because they don't understand how the brain works. The other half will act like you're stupid or imply you need constant help, because they don't understand how the brain works. A few will treat you like Sheldon from Big Bang Theory, because they don't understand how comedy works and watch Big Bang Theory. RPG is a really accepting community and I don't expect you'll run into any of that here- most people will probably simply ignore it- but it's just better not to go advertising a mental aberration to strangers.
Corra says to remember when she actually follows through with your goading that you brought it on yourselves

No but for real, Out-of-Character, I don't think you should do that until we are all actually in a fight.
Nyx and Alistair are both kind of pushed out of their situations, so they're open for interactions unless I make Nyx storm after Gellert and be all offended that he blew her off, but that's not in her character. She give him a grandiose finger to the back and go on her "merry" way, but Alistair would be.... gullible in a sense that he's a curious little monkey that would do something stupid because its fun.

I'm debating on Corra just like making an explosion for the fun of it, but I don't know how useful it would be other than to start a forest fire XD

Shertul would certainly appreciate an explosion right now, and that would trigger the fight they're all trying so hard to avoid xD

I usually do the backstory first, then work out what kinda person they'd be after that.

I always do the opposite. Because I think of the type of character I want to roleplay, and then I just make a backstory that would lead to that type of character. I wanted a peaceful, pure-of-heart, legit goodguy. So I thought of Lumao, and then I created a backstory that would lead to his personality being so kind.

Likewise, I wanted to play a convicted warrior: someone who loved to fight, but never stopped to doubt if she was doing the right thing. For a character like that, I figured they'd need to be religious (so that they have a self-justification for never doubting) and so we got Windleaf's backstory. xD

You know... I don't think I've ever tried starting with the backstory. I'mma have to try that sometime.

It wouldn't be without interaction: if she tries to stalk them, that opens the doorway for someone to noticing her, perhaps leading Lark to escape or use it as a distraction. Everything you do opens paths for other Roleplayers. Unless she's isolated totally, and she wouldn't be, others can reply.

I wasn't interacting with anyone when I had Shertul flip the fuck out in Wellborough, but it lead to Sophia saving him which led to everything happening at the gates. Just have your character do something, anything, and it is a gateway.

And Sanachan wasn't interacting with anyone when she had her elves bicker about maps, but that lead to them meeting Windleaf. They interacted with no other players, basically RP'd totally on his/her own, but it was a gateway.

One example: If she stalks, others might notice her, leading to it being discovered by Lark that she's a fae and not a child, leading to a sort of wry friendship.

It's totally up to you. Don't post if you don't wanna. But you don't gotta feel like your character is trapped in a bubble if she's not actively interacting with someone: even stalking is an interaction, when it comes to RP.

Just my friendly personal opinion, o' course. Take it or leave it.

An elf character, right?

Now it typically it depends on what sort of personality you wish for them. Cold or comforting? Bright or dull? Those factors from their experience.

Me and Cabbit are just gonna keep berating you with unsolicited advice, @Silver Carrot. I think that's the strategy here.

P.S. Edited my previous post a bit to make it clear I was just trying to be friendly :)
