Post Need Roleplaying Lessons
Sad, I know. But, while I would really like to give it a try, I have no idea how to approach it, or what to do when I get into it. I'd like to get into Pet Friendly, but I need some help. So, for the kind and experienced, I petition for your services.

It's called newbie friendly for a reason. :D

Don't worry, just jump in. Can you even tell that this is my first RP I've ever been in? That Venison is the first character I've written for? This RP is probably a first for many of the others.

Just make a character, get in character, and jump in! Although you might want to wait until after the conclusion of this whole feral pack drama...

That's what I was wondering. After sixteen pages in the thread, I thought jumping in now would be counterintuitive.

Nope, you can jump in at anytime. The thread may be 16 pages, but the time that's passed in PF has only been...3 or 4 days? Your pet can come join in a variety of ways: moving in, already living there but not spotted yet, came back from a vacation...just about anything will work.

Er, now I'm confused. Is this "feral pack drama" you speak merely a story-arc of sorts within the rp thread?

Yes, the feral pack thing is the arc that we're in right now; it's dark and...you're better off not getting involved in the arc. After its conclusion, however, we love having new players, no matter the skill.

So...just come up with a character in the meantime!

You might just check the OOC thread to see what characters appear there. In fact, I've compiled all the characters' important info on Page 6, and that could be very useful to you.... I remember when I jumped it, I thought Venison is a cat, was hard to learn otherwise once it's burnt in your brain.......

Ok, here are some things that will help peoples..

Some Do's.

Have a fully thought out character.. the more detailed your background an past experiences are the better, what is the characters motivation? (shy an reclusive?, an attention hound?, leader? follower?) This will help you alot in staying in character, as you can go back to your background an see, how would the character should react.. (if he has a phobia of black cats, is he really going to go running to help that black cat that was just hit by a car?)

Some Don't's.

Having a "superman" character.. There is nothing this character can't do. it is an expert in everything. This type of character not only always wins a fight, but comes out without a scratch, or even a hair out of place.
Have flaws! you will have a much more interesting an believable character, if you have to come-up with creative ways to do things, because you don't know how to do things.

Powergaming.. This is generally defined as taking control of anothers character is some way, an is generally very frowned upon..
(example. if you throw something at another character, you can't state it hits them an knocks them out. let the other character reply in there response as to what happens to them.)

Housepets has a caveat, if you write yourself into a corner, that requires a response or action from another character, an said character hasn't responded in 3 days to a week.
you can then carefully take control of that character to advance the RP between those characters, so your character can excape an rejoin the main RP.

He just didn't want to quote your whole post, for whatever reason, so he put a "tl;dr" instead of it.

tl;dr is an internet shorthand for "Too lazy; didn't read." (or Too long; didn't read).

Gaming forums are especially plagued by the phrase.

Yeah, we talk a lot about the RP in IRC, but I'm sure he doesn't need any lessons about writing itself (look at his fanfic).

You're gonna find all the info you need in the OOC thread. Buck did an arc list on Page 4 IIRC, and he said that he'll do it again, updated of course, so that will surely help you, too. If you have more questions, then ask them here, or in IRC.

Me too. And, for those who are currently participating, give me a heads up when the "feral" deal is done.

Hahaha, 'plague'.
But no really, yeah, it was long so I put a replacement in there. I did actually read the whole post, I just personally find it annoying when someone has all of a one-line response like I had but yet insists on quoting LARGE CHUNK OF TEXT, so I replaced the quote so I wouldn't have to do that.

Quick Tip: Don't use first person and third person in the same action. It looks funky. Iv'e noticed alot of people do it (not from this forum) and I'm all like, "wut."

Example: I wash my hands and he then dries them.

Also, I don't RP anymore. But I can teach you a thing or two if you want. :>
