Yes, this is a guide for making a Role Playing Thread on PMC. After a single read from this guide you could be like this master of the Role Play (don't get jealous now):
I know, he's pretty awesome. Now, shall we begin?
Rule 1 (The Thread):
All Forum Role Plays start somewhere. Here, we make Threads. Your RP Thread should always have an introduction, plot/storyline and an application form. These three things are the structure of your Thread.
With an introduction, you can tell the Members about the RP, it's origin (if it has one) and your inspiration of the Thread. A plot/storyline is just as important too. You need to set the base of your RP. We can't have you thinking the place is a grassland of peace while the others see it as a burning wasteland, can we?
It's what makes it easier to RP. And it also assists the RPers character creation too.
The Application, well that's going to be spoken of in rule three, get ready.
Rule 2 (The RolePlayers):
All Threads need them, without them there is no need for RPs. They can be the best or the worst thing about your Thread. It's all about accepting, and declining...
What we want to avoid are monsters known as god-modders, they usually take this form:
There are a few ways to tell a person is a god-modder:
. There character powers can control people.
. They control other RPers actions.
. They're invincible.
. They always dodge another RPers attacks.
ALWAYS decline a god-modder. They will destroy your Thread and ruin it for EVERYONE.
RPers who have average powers, are usually keepers. Go for them.
Rule 3 (Applications):
Applications are important. They are used to learn the most of a RPers' character as much as possible. They shouldn't be too short, or too long. Just right. Always have Character Name, Age and the backstory, otherwise you might let a god-modder aboard and we can't have that. Not in the slightest.
Here's a average application:
Try to get as much out of the RPers character as you need, just to determine their place in your RP empire.
Rule 4 (The RP Thread):
If there's anything an RPer hates more than a god-modder, it's having to RP on the same Thread as the application one. It causes clutter that could be compared to a landfill. Be sure to make a separate Thread for RPing. Always. And make sure it's in the Forum Games Section too.
Rule 5 (The Death):
Eventually, your Thread will die. But don't be sad about it! It gives you a chance to make a new one, with a new storyline, name, and applications (perhaps) and that means you might have to come back to this Blog, hopefully...
Congratulations! You are now a fully-fledged RolePlayer! Now get out there and show them who the true master is! And best of all, you're just like this guy now!:
He must be proud of you, give him a hug! And thanks for reading too. Bye!
