Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Rou'Ver on Sun Apr 08, 2007 4:55 pm

Hi! I'm new ~ Obviously.

I'd really like a chance to see if I fit into this roleplaying community. I have been at it around 5 years now, and I am far from a master, but I know my way around a keyboard and a chat room. I'm kinda new to the whole "forum rp" idea, so I'm hoping to learn something new.

I'll probably be posting my character sheet up for my char here in the next little while, but I was hoping to connect with someone personally and ask a few questions.

Other then that, I'm glad I am here and I hope that in the future I can be involved and/or inspire many great roleplays!

Welcome to RPGateway! Glad you stumbled across our little abode here, but I'm sure you'll find it cozy and comfortable. It's still got that fresh upholstery smell, but already got the broken in feeling that just makes you so giddy inside.

Anyway, I'm sure you'll find this community to be very helpful, and virtually all of our members are willing to answer questions or help you get started. Not because we make them (those allegations of me threatening people with relentless torture are all untrue!), but because they want to. However, if you really want to talk to the staff, most of the moderators are easy to talk to. Even the admins such as myself don't remain aloof. Eric (Master), the creator of this wonderful place, is a very dedicated admin and will definitely take suggestions or concerns into mind. So please, don't hesitate to ask any of us questions or give us suggestions for new roleplay ideas. We're a heavily user-input based society and we try to remain open minded.

So, fire away with your questions and join in on some of our RPs. Most of our RPs are willing to accept new members even if they're already in motion. If chat RP is your style, the chat is just a click away on the left menu bar. Welcome to our home. :D

Hmm try typing in /join #Gwing. If worse comes to worse, you can download mIRC or Xchat and connect to irc.surrealchat.net and join room #Gwing. We also have an OOC room called #OOC (intuitive huh?).

Type in /nick (Insert your name here)

You may need to register your nick name. To do that, you'll need to first switch to the name that you want to make sure it isn't taken. Then you'll need to type in /ns register (Insert a password here) (insert your E-mail address here)

Once you do that, you'll receive a confirmation E-mail and then that name is yours to use and only you. So, the next time you log into the chat, identify yourself and it'll automatically give you that name. So, you would type in /ns identify (password here) and it'll recognize who you are and switch you to your name. It might sound confusing at first, but really it's pretty easy and prevents someone else from pretending to be you.

Ah yes! I remember that from mIRC when I was using it about a year ago. Got it. I'll register later though! I'd like to jump in and get my feet wet..

I asked about the list and /list isnt working for me.. Have any suggestions on where to get into a vampire rp? Or where they are acceptable?

Thanks for being so helpful!

#GWing is where most of the RP will take place. We have something called the Multiverse where all forms of RP can take place. If you wish to begin an RP in the #GWing room, merely state it and an admin/moderator should switch the room to IC. IC rules will be enforced and all OOC talk should be moved to the #OOC room. Generally if an RP is started, some others will join in with their acceptable characters. The Multiverse takes place in a city called Wing City - a city that has suffered through wars and destruction over the past several months. It's currently in the rebuilding process, so some places of the city are still in ruins while others are being built up again. The northern half of the city is currently under control by an invading force led by a General that goes by the name of Lady Une. The southern half is where most of the current goings on are taking place. Key points of interest are a club called The Oasis where some freedom fighters hang out, there's Gambit's Bar which has been recently rebuilt in the red light district where generally anybody can hang out. Next door to the bar is a place called the Bunny House for... A good time. :D

Anyway, when you start making a few more friends, you'll eventually want to start making private RPs which you can do in the chat by joining a room that you make. For example, a vampire RP might have a room called #Vampires. So you would /join #Vampires and it would automatically make that room if it doesn't exist.

Really the best place to begin is in the Multiverse where you can interact with a multitude of characters from various dimensions, and then branch out from there. Also, a lot of the Forum RPs sometimes transfer over to chat RPs when a few of the participates are online.
