I want to start Roleplaying
« on: February 19, 2008, 09:18:56 am »
Sure this may belong in the stories and RPs section, but it's not a story or RP. It's a question.

How would I go about getting into the RP of this here forum?

 I've designed my creature, though I've not thought about other things, only their looks. I used to roleplay in World of Warcraft, but never on a forum. Could someone tell me what kind of things I need and how I should introduce myself into the storyline.

Methinks posting information about said creature is a must.  Its attributes, its history, tendencies, etc.  Pictures help!  From there, ask if you can be in it, or if others want to being another one.  That's all I can suggest.
Oh, and this belongs in creation corner.

i dont see how you can roleplay about a universe you haven't existed in yet,   I think you have to know the rules before you can play a role in any universe.

First of all, create your creature. Update it a little, then post an introduction, in character, in the Rolepalying Section.

In order to fully understand the very complicated politics and history of the Roleplaying section, it is reccomended you read alot of the old RPs. There are stickied threads and similar to help you understand the rules.

In the Spore Roleplaying forum right next to this one.

*An evil wind blows through the topic*

Perhaps I could persuade you to come to the other RP forum we have over in the game section?

RP's in the game section rule more. i've always concidered to join one.

Feel free to post in some of the OoC topics and ask questions, there's always something good going on. :)

I'll do that then. Maybe I should improve my creatures more too.

I know the general lines of My story i'm going to play, but I also need to create a second species from the beginning and see how that goes: . One species abuses the other and I must see when I make my movie, that I can direct my species and find my other species and then literally wear them out and se how they manage, then try to make peace with them. I don't know how the mechanics for this are goign to play out.

What PatMan is suggesting is outside of the Spore universe. If you want to RP with your creatures in a Spore setting, go here. Traditional RPing as Pat suggests go here.

Get involved! Everyone's welcome in the other Spore sections, we'd like to see you there.

The first thing to do is to make your creature. If you have one already, then flesh it out and develop a personality for your race.

My advice if you want to get started roleplaying is to read the Guide, then have a look around at the most important creatures and events in the fanfic universe history. Sure, the politics might be a little complicated, but once you've been around for a while it'll start to become second nature.
