Perhaps, instead of a guideline, we should offer a school? A type of "learning atmosphere" if you will. By organizing willing, experienced RPers and ready-to-learn newcomers I think it should all go over well. We won't have tests or anything but it's just to help with detail, profile-making... Anything really.

It's just a suggestion though. Don't mind me.
It is a suggestion, but a good one.

I could be a teacher. geek

Great thread, I must say.
I have a question, when it comes to roleplaying and I hope someone can help me with that big grin

Too often, do I use -She said- -She said- -She said- -She said- -She said- after a dialogue of my own . I would like some hints of how I can vary that habit shifty Nasty habit and I am sure someone has something to say about it big grin

Also, it kind of depends on your RP style, but when speaking in dialogue with another character, you don't even have to indicate that she/he is speaking after the innitial 'she said' , or you can " seamlessly Transit" to another verb or proverb, even another peice of dialogue, although in many cases it doesn't seem to fit, even if it is gramatically correct. confused Mels idea is also a very good one, you can even switch it around a bit for a different feel, or replace she with the characters name. lots of options. happy smile

Ex.

A.) Wild-Cherry Looked towards the horizon and noticed the figure in the distance. Unnerved she turned toward Kaldorei. Her ears swiveled, and her tail swished. " The time has come. " The time was lunch. And they desperatly needed it.

B. ) Wild-Cherry Looked towards the horizon and noticed the figure in the distance. Unnerved she turned toward Kaldorei. Her ears swiveled, and her tail swished. " The time has come. " she said.( 1 ) " Now you know what we have to do." With a nod she moved forward. " Lets make this quick. "

C. ) Wild-Cherry Looked towards the horizon and noticed the figure in the distance. Unnerved she turned toward Kaldorei. Her ears swiveled, and her tail swished. " The time has come. " She stated, with an air of superiority.

Meh, not great sugegstions but hope they help a little happy

I myself use the things "He said" "She said" all the time.. That's because I'm lazy.. big grin

There is a lot of different ways to twist and turn the finish, and a lot of good examples has already been given by above posters..

What you need to keep in mind, is that if you have said something you have to remember to indicate somehow that it was you who said it.. Most people here are experienced roleplayers, and if you misstype or lack description, no great harm is done.. They understand you anyway big grin

"The time is now" She said
"The time is now" The time was lunch
"The time has come" She stated
"The time is now" She raged

Is several good examples that I would like to point out yes

"The time is now" Wild-Cherry took a deep breath, knowing it was now or never.. (For example)

You get the point... I did not teach much new, just pointed out good points from the others big grin

You must also show the emotion of the character aswell. Even in a sentence it can be done. Example.

"Hold on." She said.

"Hold on!!!." She yelled

"Hold on......" She whispered. There was a long pause.

There can be alot more I can show but hopefully you get what I am trying to say on that part aswell.

I'm a passionate creative writer, so rping came naturally to me, but I admit to having fault, I tend to cut the setting details because I hate writing long descriptive paragraphs...yet I probably should....yet I've been in rps with much worse.

and the idea of a school is interesting...

RPing came from the ideas I had for a powerful character. A main character I hoped that worked among other characters either real or made up into a storyline.

i also hate the people who consider the UH to be an anime ripoff, with over powered characters and poor rpers...wrong on all counts..the power level of characters is balanced, i cant even stand to watch animes, so i shouldnt be able to stand the rp either ( roll eyes (sarcastic) ) and it has the rper of the f*king year in it mad

Just the thought of some of those role players makes me want to leave KMC right now but lucky for me most, if not all of them, have left. yes yes
