Forum RP: Types and Expectations ((Guide))

World’s End Tavern: Role-play and Fan Fiction

Useful guide, even if I avoid forum RP like the plague. Give me the WRA any day over a 500 post-per-thread limit.

That being said, people on WRA... really need to read this guide. Specifically, this metagaming Death Knight. He would really benefit by this amazing guide. Assuming he's capable of learning anything...

Example of a Metagame-Sue, something that is not ICly a Sue, but has been done to death. DK guards? Unlikely but they are EVERYWHERE:
"zarren stop arguing with [insert warlock's name here] he can have his demon out if it wants"
"...how do you know my name? And his name?"
"i have the papers for stormwind citizens"
"I highly doubt they would give a death knight a list of Stormwind citizens, much less that I would be on it anyways. I'm from Duskwood, moron."
"i have the duskwood papers too"
"Then what's my surname?"
"it wasn't on the papers"
"Yes it was. Go look again, and don't come back until you know it."
"i am a general of the stormwind military i can do whatever i want"
"...you're a death knight, an undead monstrosity that murdered hundreds of innocent people. You are most certainly NOT in charge of ANYBODY. Now leave me the hell alone."
/ignore
You 'can' make another thread continuing it. :P My first RP got to 7 threads, my second got to something ridiculous like 16 threads, and my most recent one is up to thread four or so.

And yes, that does sound pretty ridiculous. :|

"I have the duskwood papers too" hurr hurr.

Excellent guide, this will help a ton. I like the idea of RPing and I enjoy stories and backgrounds, and this is an excellent way to help guys like me incorporate it all together.

10/10
Thanks!
I'm trying to find an RP server that ACTUALLY takes their RP seriously. Most of the ones I've been to don't really RP, that or i never see it. I just wanna go rp on these servers, but I don't know which ones do a lot of RP. And since you may be wondering, I'm interested on RPing on the both sides, so if anyone is actually on a server that takes their RP seriously, please tell me.
This guide is for Forum RP, I am hardly an expert on the likes of In-Game RP. However I do know enough to tell you that Moon Guard and Wyrmrest Accord are your highest population realms, then there are smaller ones with high quality such as Cenarion Circle, I can't remember other names off the top of my head.

We really don't need to wait till January to know that Ebola is a problem. In Africa at least. Still no plane. I mean, scientists and other people are basically trying to tell us it disappeared out of thin air. No, thankfully we are not overreacting pleb filth.

Also, pineapples.

Somewhat overreacting. Unless you live in western africa, it's not an issue.

EDIT: Hey people in 2016! How's that war going that we all know is coming?
I was just reading this thread for the past nostalgia and thought the same thing, then came to your post about time capsules.

Cannibal, you may be interest in https://www.futureme.org/ they let you email yourself from the past :D I used it when I did genetic testing, asking about how I felt about the results 6 months later lol.

Hey 2015 Cannibal.

So it turns out that there is no massive war going on, but things in the Middle East are still heating up. I wouldn't be surprised if something happened with Russia and ISIS anytime soon. I am curious though, since I get to vote this election... who wins Presidency future Cannibal?
To Meep and the other authors here.

"Old" thread. Not at all. Nicely outlined and a great resource for this dusty old former ad&d role player. Spent most of the dead time on my midshift last night perusing it. Thank you immensely.
Thanks for the guide it has been helpful (much like Shandris) as far as describing the do's and don'ts for Rping. Thanks to you both for taking the time to writ this out, and explain.
