Just who am I? Am I the same person that wakes up after a night of rest, or am I someone completely different? What would I do if I were to discover that I am a doppelgänger of my own existence? These are thoughts that I have asked myself for as long as I can remember; an endless cross-examination of queries and questions that still reveals no true answer, nor solution. I can however tell you what I am, what I have done, and what it is that I wish for my future.

To start this journey I will introduce myself with my official title—my name is Nutter—and that is all you need to know... for now. The truth is that I have been called this alias for the longest of times, dating back to my childhood days. It is an identity that parasitically infects the tongue of every person I cross paths with—I cannot control this contagion and have no desire to hinder it's spread. I live, breathe, and spread my madness to all those around me; and I enjoy every moment of it.

While my past has been filled with many adventures and achievements, they have been continually countered by the shackles and shadows that haunt my very existence. These challenges have made me into the person I am today—what that is, I cannot fully tell—however I have been told that I am a unique combination of knowledgeable, funny, and helpful, topped with a small bit of wit. I enjoy the regular banter with the ones that I call my friends, I relish in my creative imagination, and I am a social introvert—if there ever was such a thing.

When the day comes to a close I guess none of this really matters. I cannot paint a picture of myself within your own mind from the expressive words that I have typed onto this screen. All I can do is spark an interest to see if you are willing to take the bait, willing to leap down that rabbit hole, and willing discover the identity of the man behind the mask known as NuttsnBolts.

R O L E P L A Y I N G & M E
I have been roleplaying for a few years now as a casual to advance level participant who enjoys the rich, detailed workings of a well written story; throw in a twist or two and you'll have me hooked on for the ride. A large portion of the characters that I have created during my time tend to be female, a personal choice that seemingly extends towards console gaming as well. Playing male characters isn't too difficult for me—if I can get the design just right—I just find that I can be more creative with a more feminine personas.

On the topic of writing style I do tend to use colours, pictures and a variety of stylised formatting techniques. I do have a hard time concentrating on walls of white text as I am quite visual and artistic, so this is a way that I can counter this dilemma. Generally I will try my best with grammar and spelling but if you happen see any edits then I've probably latched onto a word and used it several times, or made a dumb spelling mistake.

Any other roleplaying details about myself and my interests can be found in the links below as I will be keeping those updated with designs, ideas and preferences. If you have any other questions you are free to PM me at any point. I love chatting with people and I am pretty open minded to most topics.

This is a list of Roleplayers that I respect, not just for their writing skills but as a person and a friend.

Very interested. I've got several ideas in mind, now to just get it all down.

You guys also have a remarkably good taste in images. Did it take you long to find them?


Most of the time I use Pinterest, mostly cause it'll also display similar images and filters out a lot of the garbage that Deviantart and Google contain.

In terms of time, not long. However I've got a collection of a few hundred to choose from for various rps.
Just another awareness bump
Awareness bump. We're still open
Found this rather interesting since pretty much everyone here uses dialogue.

Rules to Format Dialogue
Source: [link]

1. Enclose the spoken words with double quotation marks.

“I love it when that happens.”

Note: The British use single quotation marks.

2. Dialogue tags (the he asked/she said portions) stay outside the quotes and get separated by a comma.

Sam said, “I’ll never do that again.”

“Don’t be a sissy,” said Bill. “Let’s get back in line and ride this beast again.”


Note: When dialogue ends in a question or exclamation mark, tags that follow start in lower case.

“What’s new?” she asked.


3. Actions that occur before or after the dialogue go in a separate sentence. For example, If Cindi screamed and then spoke, you write it this way:

Cindi screamed. “Oh my God!”


On the other hand, if Cindi screamed out the words, use a comma instead of a period (so that it’s all part of the same sentence).

Cindi screamed, “Oh my God!”


4. Punctuation goes inside the quotes.

Mary covered her mouth. “Oh no!” She looked like she had seen a vampire. “Did you see that?”


Note: If the dialogue ends with an ellipsis, do not add a comma or any other punctuation.

She stared at the dark horizon. “I guess you’ll go back to running your company and I will…” her voice drifted off.


5. If you have to quote something within the dialogue, use single quotation marks. (Brits reverse the use of double and single quotes.)

Bill laughed and pointed at him. “When that ghost jumped out and said, ‘Boo!’ you screamed like a little girl.”


6. Start a new paragraph every time you change speakers. If the speaker performs actions linked to the dialogue, keep everything in the same paragraph. Why? Readers easily lose track of which character is speaking. A new paragraph helps readers by signalling a change.

Note: Indent the first line of these paragraphs, just like all other paragraphs.
Couldn't get this to work with the post layout, and not many people do it here. This is more for manuscripts on pages.

“Did he hit you?” Deanna asked, looking at the cut and bruises on Laura’s face.

“No. I hurt myself.” Her brain scrambled to invent a story. “I, umm, fell.”

“That bastard!”

“No. You don’t understand. It was my fault.”

Deanna pointed her finger at Laura. “Battered women always say that.” She shook her head. “Please come with me. I don’t think you should be here when he comes back.”


7. If an action interrupts a sentence in the dialogue, use lower case on the first letter of the second fragment.

“I know,” he lowered his voice to a whisper, “what you said.”


8. If the same speaker talks long enough to require a new paragraph, place opening quotation marks at the beginning of each paragraph. However, closing quotation marks are placed only at the end of the final paragraph.

Tom explained the details. “The thread is a remarkable silk-wool blend, a new fabric named Allurotique. Some people compare it to the most expensive commercially available silk, Pashmina Silk; but that comparison is off base. Pashmina silk is made by weaving wool from pashmina goats with a silk produced by worms that eat only mulberry leaves.

“Allurotique is blended, not woven. And it’s made from the most expensive silk and a exotic wool spun into a fabric with extraordinary qualities.

“The silk in Allurotique is muga silk, which has a natural shimmering gold color. It absorbs water better than other silks, making it more comfortable to wear. It’s has a number of other nifty features: it’s more durable than other silks, it’s almost impossible to stain and it gets shinier with wear.

“The wool in Allurotique is harvested from vicuñas, a South American animal related to llamas. Vicuña wool is softer, lighter and warmer than any other wool in the world. Since the animals can only be sheared once every three years, it’s rare and outlandishly expensive.”
I'm just gonna try to ignore the post above me. xD

I'm hoping to have this rp have a LOT of people, so I need to have my roleplay advertised in a lot of ways. I've already:

-Posted about it on my status
-put it in my signature
-commented about it a little in OOC of other rps
-mentioned people from another fantasy rp it was inspired from
-Posted it in chat

What else can I do? Here's the link.

I was thinking of adding a picture at the beginning too. But what picture should I put up?


First thing I would do is place it in the Casual Interest check section. General Interest checks are only a secondary area for people to check if they can't find something that catches their eye. That's because it can cover anything from Free to advance, Arena, 1x1s, and Table-top... basically it's shouting to the world in a sea of noise.

Next thing I would do is adjust your interest check and OOC layout. Besides the title, where's the banner name for the Roleplay? It's not always needed but having a snazzy title does help. For example:







These were all pulled off 1001 Fonts so anyone can quickly make a title, no Photoshop needed.

Lastly, I would roll with who you have in the OOC. Start designing your own characters, play around a little bit and show your excitement. You can't really do much more than that to draw in people as they will come when they come on their own accord. I've seen reboots of the same roleplay, and done so myself, and they've had two different sides of the coin for results.

So essentially what you are doing is right, but there's only so much that you can actually do.
