As I have posted elsewhere, I would like to learn how to RP, but have no experience. There was one that almost started about 6 months ago and nothing happened. Im always game for a game, but I need to be guided in this case.

It's pretty easy to do. Essentially people create character sheets; and it's an interactive, ongoing story. If you've done any form of gaming (Dungeons & Dragons, for example), you can easily RP - except there's no "DM" or "Game Master" - essentially everyone is. You control your character and interact with the unfolding story as it goes along.

Was going to see if Ivy Holt (old RP I used to belong to EONS ago) was still around by accessing it through the cached geocities site: http://www.oocities.org/tymbersden/

But the link from my old site just goes to an Ivy Holt front page, that doesn't have any of the archives.

I have heard bits a pieces of DnD, but never played. Not only was a sheltered (mom actually took away a pirate themed dice roll pick your path type book because she feared it was a evil as DnD and would make me kill myself... yeesh), I didnt know anyone I could meet up with to play it with. The closest I get is story writing and playing Magic... there was one old DOS game that was an RPG,but I guess thats not the same.

History :
Wink is the leader of the Gypsie elves, and the holder of the Magic Mist Amulet. The Amulet gives the wearer the ability to control the fog, mist, clouds, anything of cloudy substance really, and is the reason for the name of their tribe - Mistwalkers. He is a very strict leader of his people and does not put up with disobediance. Yet he is forgiving. He is a strong leader and is training his son, Cloudhand, to be the next leader of the Mistwalkers always having him at his side.
 He got his name wink because his men know that when he wants something done all he has to do is wink at them. It's like his secret code for "take care of it".  He lost the tip of his ear as a child. He got caught stealing from a human and almost didn't  get away. The human chopped at him, but only got his ear.

So you'd just fill out the character sheet (like above) and then - it's free reign. Kind of like the story idea we were batting back and forth for a bit (about the nomads elves and the trolls).

So you would have person A write something like (let's say their character is Talonhawk)...
======================

Talonclaw searched through the woods for any form of food. Supplies were running low these days.

(It'd probably go much longer, but just for the sake of examples, I am stopping there!)

Then person B (let's say their character's name is Clearsky)...
==================

Clearsky sent out a telepathic message, *** Everyone! Humans by the caves! Gather the weapons! ***

(Again, might be longer; could be about Clearsky hunting before coming across the humans; but again, for sake of the example, making it short)...

So Person A (Talonhawk) might reply...

=====

After getting Clearsky's telepathic message, Talonhawk quickly moved across the treetops, until he reached the base of the mountains, where he saw six humans with torches.


And so on and so on. But naturally you could have a whole tribe of elves in the RP.

The great thing about RP is that you can do it however you like. I would start with determining what's most important for you. Do you want to tell a cohesive story that spans years and years? Or would you rather have something more spontaneous? Maybe you'd rather do a more intensive game requiring stats and dice rolls. Do you want to play with a lot of people or only one or two? Do you have time to devote to forum upkeep and moderating?

After that, you wanna decide on a setting. Do you wanna do it on Abode, or do you wanna do an alternate universe? Do you want to involve humans and trolls or any other species, canon or not? Do you want your game connected to canon or not? What tribes do you want to use? What time do you want to play in?

It can be an overwhelming process to create, but it's...quite rewarding. And you don't need to learn how to do it. You decide how it's done.

Trollhammer if you would like to join in the one with Sharp leaf and I, feel free. Keeping it simple and short and just for fun. No plot or plan worries, it's just to have some writing fun, since having fun in an RP is what's most important above all I love you

I wouldn't mind getting back into RPing but I'm short on time ATM. I may jump in at some point in a few weeks, my writing sucks big hairy ones but I'll still have a go!

don't see why we couldn't discuss it here. could get opinions and maybe perk some interest from others.

if mine eyes don't decieve me, i see Embala lurking above me...:p maybe she'd be interested in joining. a roleplay is always more fun with a small handful of people.

sooo....probably some big long involved storyline wouldn't work. if it doesn't in a roleplay holt, why would it here?*shrug*

i'm honestly good with playing Tidemist or regular Vaeri.

ooooh i just had an idea. what if we did a scene like in Small World, where all the elves gather together? except in this case, it's not just to try and spark recognitions, but to allow celebrations in their elfiness and celebrate tribe cultures together!^^ then people of all tribes and stuff could participate without worrying about logistics.
