How Not To RP

You may have realised by now that Argent Dawn is in fact an RP server. The first time I entered Silvermoon City, there were people slowly walking around like NPCs, talking to each other in Thalassian, it really does feel like another world entirely coming from a PvP server.

The other night, I believe it was Friday, we ventured into Silvermoon to check out the RP surroundings. It was funny! Of course, we stood around messing about, giggling away, and a rogue pops up and joins in. I felt a little sorry for him, he seemed to be making a genuine attempt to RP with us and was met with Sith’s remarks. If I’m honest, I think he was laughing at us.

There are the right ways to RP, and the wrong ways to RP, and I believe I’ve picked up a few tips:

  • (( )) = Out of character.
  • Don’t use smileys, and remember that if you bump into somebody your character hasn’t come across before, they wouldn’t know their name.
  • FlagRSP (RP mod) shouldn’t be used for back story, just things you can visibly see looking at a character, the aesthetics.
  • And stay away from de voodoo ‘mon’.

The things people do at crazy hours of the morning, eh? 😉

Sunday Link Love

I can’t possibly link love all of the awesome bloggers I’ve come across this week, but a very dear friend of mine has come over to the dark side. Not only has he enrolled in Single Abstract Noun but he’s caved in and started his own blog. Go over and say hello to Zalduun at Blessing of Fish!

  1. I’m playing on Argent Dawn – US, but I haven’t seen people roleplay yet. It’s interesting to see how big the difference is between our servers…

    1. Ah really? Finding it all over the place in Silvermoon/Eversong, a little in Thunder Bluff too. What population is the US Argent Dawn?

      1. The population’s high, just like yours. It’s just that there are really few roleplayers… that, or they all roleplay in their own guilds.

  2. I usually observe RP, I don’t participate … mainly because I’m rubbish. I do love watching it shape the world though. And, yes, poor Zlim!

  3. It’s not that foreign of a world, I promise!

    Best thing to do is go to an inn and sit for a bit, observe your surroundings. Don’t force yourself on anyone (except Sith apparently, lol) and don’t be afraid to let people know you’re new! Most of us don’t bite.

    1. Hehe, you’d be surprised from reading gchat actually! I think most of us have never been on an RP server before, it’s like a completely different game!

      I did observe a little later on, it was quite interesting, and also impressive 🙂
