Help for Beginners

-Help for Newbies-

If you are entirely new to role-play altogether, or just new to this kind of role-playing, TWORP is here to help you.

Below is a list of very helpful tips to get you started. And as always, if you have any questions, feel free to post them on the 'Out of Character - OOC' board in which ever role play you are in and someone will reply with the answers you need. Or, if you would rather private questions, etc. you can message one of the moderators.

1) Familiarize yourself with every page in this web site first. Get a feel of the place. Look in on the role-play that goes on in the forum to get a general idea of how some do it. Even if you would like to ‘spy’ in from time-to-time before ever even making yourself known, feel free! This web site is fixed so that you can see what goes on without having to become a member.

2) Never be afraid to ask questions, even if you feel they are stupid questions.

3) If you start role-playing and you make a mistake, don’t be embarrassed. We still make mistakes every now and then!

4) Try not to isolate your character! Let us be honest with you, the best way to get to know people (in character and out) is to jump right in somewhere! This is especially important while role-playing. Make your character known, start up a conversation, do something rather than ‘sitting in dark corner watching the action around her”. Many beginners give up because no one will ‘talk to their character’ or ‘make the first move’. Thing is, those who are already in storylines of their own, sometimes have a difficult time noticing new characters (especially if they aren’t doing or saying much). It isn’t anything personal, you just have to find your place within the storylines as well. We at TWORP try to make beginners feel at home, but you have to help us by doing your part as well. Trust us; your character will be just as involved as any other, in no time as long as you do not give up after the first few tries.

5) Very Important!!! If you are new, then you are likely unaware that a rude character is not something to get upset over and assume you are not wanted here at TWORP!! Remember, characters are characters. You might try for the first time with your character to interact in a chat or forum role-play and suddenly another character is purposely ignoring you, or even being utterly nasty. Do not fret! Many characters simply have nasty attitudes. Simply play along with it as your character would, and never forget that the people behind the characters are not the characters themselves. They are just being true to the personalities of the characters in which they created. Everything creates a storyline. ~winks~

Everyone has to start somewhere. Just go with the flow and enjoy yourself.
