Roleplay Rules
1 - Stick to the original Forum Rules
2 - Romance is ok. But please leave out the sexy-time =)
3 - No godmoding, and if someone is please mail them politely and explain to them what it is and why it's bad, they most likely just don't know it's wrong
4 - Please do not attempt to control another person's character or harm them without giving them a chance to dodge
5 - If you want to make sure that people who join your RP to have a certain degree of experience, please use the tags (lit) or (semi-lit+) in your title. This is explained fully a few posts down.
6 - If your role play is not based on an original idea and characters, please put what kind of roleplay it is in square brackets. If is a mix of various stories, please put the word mix in there. Examples would be: [Pokemon] or [Anime Mix] or [Twilight] or [Media Mix].
7 - Please leave your roleplays on the board and not through private message so they can be monitored.

RULE FIVE EXPLANATION

We all know that there's different degrees of Role-playing. For the purposes of this forum, we'll divide it into the three below.
If you would like to have your roleplay be Semi-literate or above, please mark in your title (semi-lit). If you would like your roleplay to be Literate only, please mark (lit) in the title. If anyone can join, you don't have to add anything Smile

1) Illiterate : This is the kind of roleplay that looks like this:
Quote :
an then the most butiful guy in wrld wnt 2 the bathroom & kissed the gurl. nxt he killed th guy behind the door @ starbucks
This kind of roleplaying is neither interesting nor thought-provoking. The problems with it are pretty obvious, such as the decapitated words, use of numbers as words, lack of details, and not to mention going against two seperate rules: godmodding and killing. Another ommon mistake is lack of punctuation (periods and commas) and capital letters. I'm glad to say that I've not seen anyone on this forum speak or roleplay in this fashion, and I hope it won't happen in the future either.
Quote :
Luke looked behind him and saw he was at Starucks.
A person's roleplaying skills are often also called 'illiterate' if they're very very short, for example less than three sentences. These kinds of roleplayers we do have on this forum - the newbies to the whole writing thing. We're cheering you guys one and hoping to see you improve on your story-writing skills!

2) Semi-Literate This your basic roleplay, something that looks like this:
Quote :
Seeing the attention of the Vortailer flicker for a moment, Nenadair looked away from the glass boat to see a blur of mchanized limb flickering into a tent. What was that? As far as he new, the army didn't have any particularily robotic components, or at least none that he'd seen so far.
As you can see, it's pretty typical, without any amazing insight and a few accidental spelling mistakes. It'll usually be somewhere between 3-10 lines, and has detail pertaining specifically to the story and what's going on at the moment. The character also reacts to the actions of other characters.

2) Literate This is the top-of-the-line Roleplay:
Quote :
As Rav worked silently he became aware that a hush was descending on the entire encampment. He looked up from his work peevish at the latest interruption, then wondered what could have happened. When nothing else occurred for a moment, he stood up, carefully holding the watch steady and paced to the tent's cloth mouth. He peered around at the Sentronians standing about, and then looked upward as well.

He gaped openly at the Glassdawn first at the fact that it existed, then at the fact that it was rapidly being covered in a red liquid. His immediate thought was that it was an amazing feat of technology, his second that it was probably just magic, and his third was that stuff had to be blood.
He stared apathetically, thinking that some fight had begun and that there were one or more seriously wounded. Those wounds were sloppy and surely agonizing. Sure enough he could hear wretched shrieks and screeches. He used his mechanical eye to get a good close look, then warily backed into the tent once again, his thoughts filled with the sight. There was nothing he could do, and he did not want to get involved in such a clash.
A literate Rolepalyer has often been writing for much of their life - and considers themselves rather good at it. These kinds of roleplay posts are very fun to read, as they contain a lot of detail, matured language, lots of interaction with the world around their character, and the use of their character's uniqueness in comparison to every other character. As you can also see, this is a rather long post and about the typical size for a literate Roleplayer, but they can also be longer.







------------------------------------------------------
REPLIES:
As for other languages.. if you feel like using a word or two, go ahead. But please don't have strings of sentences Smile

Illuminada - godmodding is basically overstepping your power to create your character. An example would be to make your character completely invincible. Or, instead, making your character the most beautiful in the world. This makes for a rather argumentative roleplay - as the player is more often trying to show their dominance over the other roleplayers instead of just wanting to have a good story going on.

Along with godmoding, I'd also perhaps add autohits to your list. I think they're just as quarrelsome.

Autohits... are you referring to one-hit kills or when someone attacks and doesn't give you a chance to defend/dodge?

Autohits are when people automatically make attacks hit.
For example, 'Tom punched Joe hard in the face, sending him sprawling to the ground'
as compared to
'Tom aimed a punch at Joe's face, hoping to send him sprawling to the ground'.

In the first instance, Joe's been hit, and he can do nothing about it, as his actions have been predestined. In the second, the punch is coming his way but not connected, allowing Joe to be able to make a comeback, or graciously take the hit.

You could also bring into that autokills, which also speak for themselves.

I've never heard of bunnying, but from what you wrote somewhere else on here, it sounds like puppet mastering.

I hadn't heard bunnying before either, but I just thought controlling other characters actions/fates was under GMing.

I think I've heard autohits before.... ? It seems fairly self-explanatory. =]

There is also a step up from literacy, although it is rather scary.

Advanced literate.
Basically, they tend to write 5 or more paragraphs per post thus the fact that they are very advanced. However, such role players, tend to describe a rock for a paragraph sometimes (some adv. lits are very good) - so advanced literate can be a pro and a con.
