New to the site, but not to roleplay...however very confused
« on: December 23, 2010, 03:17:02 PM »
Hello, allow me to introduce myself, and my history as a roleplayer :3
My name, or at least how you shall come to know me, is Mira Estrella.
I have been roleplayin for roughly six years, under various character names, and written primarily novella and very florid multi para.
However, the only site I've ever used happened to be myspace, which has changed into something unusable, not to mention the amount of noobs on there is...terrifying. So I was wondering if any one could explain the site to me so I can begin writing again as soon as possable.
I hope to get to know all of you very well :3

Howdy and Welcome!

We have tons of sections; each for specific topics of discussion.

The RP area has a board for posting character biographies(something your make first when wanting to join in a RP)

There is another board for discussing a specific RP out of character; asking questions, talking about the storyline and ideas, etc etc.

The RP board itself works as thus:

Each topic is a RP. Depending on the style and rules defined by the RP creator you can just make a character and join the adventure! Or choose from pre-created characters.(Mostly there are free-form characters for RPs)

I hope that this clears it up for you, if you have more questions, feel free to ask!

:D WELCOME~! Friend of Envy's perhaps? Hmmm~!

If you have any questions, ideas, need help, whatever I'm here for you!

Everything Flash said was pretty much how its done.

Bios are easy, most RPs here require them, but not all. Its basically just general info
Name: Nacho Cheese
Age: 18 years old
Hair Color: Orange
Other details: blah blah blah

pretty simple stuffs!
Then an RP is made by who ever, and people are free to join; the first post has the plot and information.

I.e:
RP Title: Sammiches
First Post: In a land far far away in a galaxy in a distant land there was living foods! But the mold nation is out to destroy them all!!!
Rules:
1) Characters most be food
2) No god mode
3) no double post
Ect.

the next post should start the RP off, (usually the RP maker starts it, but not always). We commonly use third person limited for the point of view, but not everyone always does.

First post example:
Nacho Cheese was down by the chocolate river looking down, his yearning for adventure growing as she dove into the liquid syrup. He was carried down stream, towards Taco Land, where be met with his good friend Tommy-Taco.

Then the next post would be by someone else, and it continues in that fashion.

XD I don't know if that helps or makes it harder, feel free to browse the RP section for ideas or a better understanding.

Thank you so much, I think I have a pretty good idea, however just a few quick questions.
1) in the bio do you have to reveal the details of your characters, such as species and bio? or, can you choose to keep that a secret?
2) how many people in one rp (generally)?
3) How do you get accepted into an rp?
4) are there sections for novella rp?

1) The generically used bio is located here: http://www.4m4life.com/Forum/index.php?topic=4046.0
As far as keeping character secrets, that differs between roleplays, most DMs don't care if you discuss it with them first, so just talk to the creator of RPs to see if its alright for you to keep some things from being immediately revealed.

2) The number of people permitted in RPs on 4M specifically is most always unlimited, however there are RPs like for example Awakening of Time that can have up to 12 character necessary to the plot and as many lesser characters as desired. A single person can control numerous characters, so as many characters as you get approved is as many characters as you're allowed to play. Generally, we have roughly 3-5 people per RP, but we are hoping to increase that number ;D

3) A. Read the plot to an RP of interest (RPs are found here: http://www.4m4life.com/Forum/index.php?board=27.0 )
    B. Go to the biography section, and locate the topic for the RP of interest (Located here: http://www.4m4life.com/Forum/index.php?board=30.0 )
    C. Submit a bio by replying to the topic, and wait for the person running the RP to approve the bio or tell you what altercations need to be made for the bio to get approved. (Example here: http://www.4m4life.com/Forum/index.php?topic=3285.0 )
    D. Once approved you are free to post in the roleplay!

4) The main RP section is for RPs of any kind. :)
