Another thing, I know many people do it, and it's a different form of RPing, but it's A LOT easier for others to comprehend what you're trying to say when you type your actions like you are writing a book, rather than using ** for every action. For example, say my character's name is Sarah, and I want her to take a walk, I would say,

Sarah walked down the street, enjoying the time to herself.

That's a lot easier than reading

*walks down the street* "Wow this is nice *turned down another street*

Yeah, I agree. That's obnoxious. Or like:

Sarah: Wow... why don't I take walks more often? *laughs*

I tottaly agree with you Lila. It gets annoying when people don't use propper grammer in rpg's.

sometimes when i read the * i think it's the actual writer laughing sometimes.

Example: "Wow your head looks big" *laughs*<---i think it might be the writer laughing because say that sentence is funny. so i usually write in book like form.

"Wow your head looks big" chuckled Ralph.

I had a question: Is the author of an RPG allowed to exclude anyone? Because I've seen in a few RPGS where the author says no more chars after only 3 or 4 people have joined. This seems odd to me.

I hope this is in the right place...

um well, i guess thats the author's decision, Although it would be kinda rude to let the person in and the ignore them, if you just tell them nicely that there are no more spots left, i guess is alright^^

Likewise, if you are unsure on how to roleplay, just ask here and a knowledgeable member will answer your question in a giffy.

Hi! I would like to play an RPG (specifically the High school one) but I don't want to barge in or anything because they have already started. If I can't play, that's fine. But how do I start playing? Sorry, it's kind of confusing how I put it, but I hope you know what I mean.

Don't worry about barging in! In most cases, the creator of the RPG would love to have you. All you really have to do is post something like, "ooc: can I join?"

Probably because you're a new member. Once you have a few more posts, you should be able to start one.
