Hello there, welcome to the world of role play. You might get a better idea by reading through the stickies at the top of the forums. Yes it is a lot of reading. There are some rules and its a good idea to familiarize yourself with them.

Basically, role play (or rp as most call it) is making a character and writing a story for it set in the Azeroth universe. You are the creator of the character and the author of its destiny. You are also an actor, speaking with, and having other interactions, with other players and their characters.

Just like a sport you want to learn to play, you need to remember certain things. First is good grammar and spelling. Use capital letters for names and your pronoun "I", keep sentences simple. You can use emotes in game or simply the /say to have conversations with others.

If you have an add on called MyRolePlay, from curse.com, you can fill out a simple backstory and description for others who have the add on to read. This add on also gives you a way to notice other rpers and let them know you are a beginner.

You also need to be on an rp or rp/pvp server if you want to rp in game. On the forums it is not necessary. Any questions on lore you can look at some of the facts on wowpedia. Its a good idea to research the race you want to rp thoroughly so you can set it up correctly.
