  1. The deed is done. The post is edited! Thank you guys for a wonderful rp time! I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you ever want to do something again in the future, hmu! But for now, good luck with your various rp ventures and have a good day!
  2. Thanks 💛 Youre absolutely 100% right tho and I’ll probably need something slow to keep me sane, but I’ve already asked the question so it might be little late to turn back now lol. I’ll make the edit sometime soon when I have the energy
  3. Would you guys mind if I edited my last post to write my character out? Just a bit of closure. I’m not sure how alive this thread is and school starts next week (which will kill 98% of my free writing time). It’s been absolutely lovely writing with you and I really enjoyed this thread. I just know I’m gonna be swamped in a couple days
  4. Finding a quirk/repeating mannerism/default action. I mainly use it in live rp (dnd), but it works well in text too! It’s an easy way of keeping things in character and provide a base to work from. Plus, a little bit of flavor text is always nice. Just be careful not to overuse it and accidentally make every post the same repeating mannerism... not that I have ever done that.. definitely not... The other thing is clear goals! It’s a lot more fun to play a character who is working towards something vs a character with no motivation. It helps keep everything moving too. There’s no time for stagnation during Ulfric Vampslayer’s quest to slay all vampires! Dr. Cleric, who’s goal is to heal people, has a great time playing field medic during the 15-person epic battle thread!
  5. I would be very interested in hearing some tips from other people. My real life lack of social skills sometimes carries over into my rp dialogue. I guess my one tip would be to actually say the dialogue out loud to see how it sounds. Sometimes things look better on paper than when spoken aloud.
  6. "Of course. There should be room if I scoot over a bit," he replied. Ainsworth stayed awake by the fire for another hour before he crawled into his bedroll and fell asleep. He was a restless sleeper, so he tried to find an angle where he wouldn't accidentally kick Torie in the middle of the night. He woke up to the cold morning sunlight and the sound of Torie loudly crunching the leftover frozen deer carcass. The breeze nipped at his nose and cheeks as he stuck his head out from under the warm haven of his blankets. A layer of snow had accumulated on top of the tent and the middle was beginning to sag. It wasn't made to handle snowstorms-- certainly not the snowstorm that had blown through overnight. He blinked in surprise at the foot of fresh powder that had appeared overnight. Their campfire was completely buried and the snow formed a bank around his tent. Ainsworth briefly debated with himself whether to get up or to stay inside his pocket of warmth. With a reluctant sigh, he gave in to reason and sat up. He pulled on his boots and jacket in record time and left the tent through the gap in the snow that Torie left behind. As he emerged, he caught the end of Dew's explanation of Kriegstad's absence. He wasn't surprised. Kriegstad seemed like he was happy with the loner lifestyle. "Mornin'." His voice was still rough from sleep as he greeted the group. His hair was loose around his shoulders and a night of rest didn't seem to have had any effect on the perpetual dark circles under his eyes. Still, he seemed cheerful as he walked over. He caught a glimpse of the snow mounds where his cargo was and winced, He'd have to dig that out eventually. The horse glared at him balefully from under its tree. "Well, it looks like this is where we part ways. I'm going to try to get as far south as I can. Thank you for dinner and the fire." He smiled and ducked his head a little. "The company was nice. If the road is kind, we might see each other again." Ainsworth stuck around long enough to pack away the tent and load his cargo. He'd done it so many times before that it was second nature by now. The air had barely started to warm when he left the campsite. He turned one last time and waved to Torie and Dew if they were still there. "Safe travels, you two!" He called. With that, he set off down the road and soon disappeared from view, obscured by the tress and fresh snowbanks. There was a long journey home ahead of him.
  7. That’s great to hear! It’s always a fun time writing with you. I’m glad the irl business is giving you a break! (I can definitely relate lol.) 💛
  8. @ReachForStars Everything okay? I’m sorry to bother you and I know you said things are busy for you rn, so I’m just checking in! 🙂
  9. One day I will describe my characters well... but today is not that day sorry Cerin: The ghosts told me that you’re a bitch. Ainsworth: Who gave this disaster human powers, but not a nap? Tana: Edgelord McStabby is comin’ for your gold. Hamlin: Laws are more of guidelines than actual rules. Malcom: Amnesia and excommunication put a damper on the paladin lifestyle.
  10. Mostly just to give the characters in my head somewhere to live lol. I’ve always wanted to write a book and send my characters out into the world... but alas I have neither the skill, motivation, or time to do so. Perhaps someday when I’ve become a stronger writer, but for now roleplay is just as good/better! Plus, rp is fun! Its always a delight to be able to play with different people and different styles. I love the creative aspect of it. Who knows what kind of zany shenanigans we’ll get up to! Roleplay also gives me a space to deal with my emotions and problems in a more constructive setting. Getting into the headspaces of different characters helps put things in perspective and gives an outlet for what I’m feeling. I try not to drag my issues into rp, but it happens occasionally and I’d like to apologize to my rp partners who were probably very confused as to why my style changed 3 times over the course of the thread 😅. Besides that, roleplay is a good place to practice communication skills and talking to people without the pressure of real life! Hell yeah! In conclusion: It’s fun!
  11. Sure, that could be fun. From the little that I can see from them, they seem nice! I’m okay with it if @ReachForStars is.
  12. I've been messing around with HeroForge for d&d related purposes, but it could also be a pretty nice resource for character art/concepts!
  13. I believe it’s @Venus Sprite‘s turn, but I know we weren’t sticking to a super strict turn order. And I’m good with either keeping the thread or making a new one- whatever’s easier for people!
