  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!
  14. Sorry, did I accidentally kill the rp? 😂😂
  15. Aight here we go! (In vague order of fantasy to modern.) Let’s hope at least one thing hits your desired aesthetic! An Irish Party In Third Class Kingdom Dance — Tangled Drink Up, There’s More! — The Witcher 3 Teir Abhaile Riu — Celtic Women My Lindsey Stirling Pick The Arena Get Lucky — Flash Mob Jazz Anything from Postmodern Jukebox Bang - AJR Roaring 20s — p!atd I wish I had more but I’m blanking tonight. @Veloci-Rapture stole all my first-pick songs! Lol
  16. "Mnph?" Ainsworth looked up with a mouth full of food as Torie posed a question to the group and Dew grabbed his attention. He wasn't prepared and spent the time it took him to finish chewing to think about his response. "Back to Vdara, you mean?" He scrunched up his face as his face as he did the math in his head. The city was out of his path of travel, but at the rate the weather was changing, he doubted he could make it down to Kethlerin before the roads got snowed over. Snowy roads weren't the worst to travel by, but they were more likely to cause damages to the horse and supplies. Plus, he wasn't carrying enough cold-weather equipment. His gear could keep off the chill, but it wouldn't stand up to a snowstorm. "I don't know... I guess I could," he conceded. "It would be nice to sleep in a bed for a little while and I can technically sell Tug and the rest of my cargo anywhere. Would you be offended if I thought it over tonight and gave you my answer in the morning?' The magician's eyes widened as Kriegstad presented Dew and himself with a fresh deer pelt for warmth. He shot a look of poorly disguised panic at Dew as the dryad foisted the pelt to him. It was a look that said 'Come back! Don't leave this to me, please!' Ainsworth forced a smile on to his face. "Thank you, uh, very much for your... generosity," he said quickly, "but between blankets and a tent, I am very, um, toasty. So as you can see here, I am also not bothered by the cold and therefore Torie, you are welcome to take it." He nodded unconvincingly. Once he was done eating, Ainsworth scraped his plate into the fire and left the circle for a few minutes to pitch his tent and finish the any tasks left to do before the day was over. The "tent" was a waterproof canvas hung on a light a-frame. It was more to keep the snow off than to provide warmth. He set it up far enough away from the fire that it was out of the space of the others, but close enough that some of the light still made its way over. It was a shame. He had hoped to have a few more nights underneath the stars. Once everything was set, he returned to the fire with one of the blankets from his bedroll slung over his shoulder. "I'll be up for a little while," He said. "Let me know if I'm bothering any of you or if you want me to take a shift. Though, from the sound of it, Dew has that covered." He grabbed his cup and enjoyed the warmth of the campfire. The cold night air was starting to nip at his skin. He watched as a few more snowflakes drifted down and shivered. "Hopefully that snow will be light... I guess we'll see what the morning brings."
  17. I am no Shize, but I find that you can get fairly specific moods with different types of LoFi. For example- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsZAFD5Y0sM If you’re looking for songs, here are my suggestions! (Most “melancholy” songs I know are either my personal brand of music or for writing different characters, so the vibe might not be exactly what you’re looking for, sorry!) Any of this get close to your intended vibe?
  18. @ReachForStars Would you like to post next or shall I?
  19. In my experience, overcooked starts out as a fun, wholesome, team-building experience, then quickly devolves into pure chaos where two people are trying to knock eachother off the edge, one person is setting everything on fire, and the last is spinning around in circles with the fire extinguisher. that might just be my fam tho...
  20. That sounds good to me 🙂
  21. Local magician regrets bad life choices When did Hot Topic sell knives?? Creepy loner joins too many cults “Laws” are really more like guidelines I have revoked your paladin license
  22. It looks good to me! (From my non-participant perspective). There’s some good opportunities there for me to start using the Feathers more. It’s been an absolute pleasure to read along with this thread!
