Now Taking Students

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby MrMurdoch on Wed Oct 13, 2010 4:46 pm

Sorry, all booked!

Hey there, peoples! I'm DraconicArcania. I'm a writer, a poet, and a roleplayer. As a mentor, I'd like to make my services available to you. In this forum you can find what you need to strive and prosper as an illustrious author. Whatever your tastes, you can be sure that some coaching will help. Note that I am not an expert, but I am here to help you in your artistic endeavors. So, drop me a line here or by PM and we'll work something out. Just to let you know, I'll have a hectic online schedule from Monday to Friday, but I'll notify all involved about what's going down. Anyway, onto how this works. As a teacher and friend, I will roleplay with you via forums, chat, or PM. My two preferred methods are forums and chat. Anyway, just drop me a line if you want to get some help or advice. Throughout the roleplay, I'll critique your work by PM if the need arises or I feel I should alert you to something. However, I do have a few limits... I do not to fan-based worlds, it's a mega-no for me. I also don't partake in any form of cybering, and will not go beyond a kiss. I'll write the intros if you want, or you can write them. Oh, and no Twilight roleplays. I'm good with Artemis Fowl, Star Wars, Harry Potter (I'm most experienced in this field), even The Outsiders (if done correctly) or Phantom of the Opera! But nuh-uh, Twilight is where I draw the line. However, I'd like to say that I'm now open for business! I'm also open to critiquing roleplays, should you want one specifically from me... Oh, quick edit, Talon's my usual roleplay character, though I'm also fine with Orpheus. I'll also make a new character on occasions, conditions pending. If I have not replied for an extended amount of time (as in over three days during the holidays and over a week for normal American school time), then please message me and I will either explain and apologize, or I'll most likely get to posting.

So...how does this work exactly? I'd love to hone my RPing skills, especially in the area of character making... but I have to clue what to do. This website's so big--I'm lost @.@

Well, this is all pretty simple. You an I will roleplay however you want and I'll critique you as we go. It's a really simple thing, right? Anyway, as for character making, you could always just show me your profile either by PM or here and I'll give you some tips. I suggest you use the premade character sheets by submitting characters into places like the multiverse before you begin. :)

Although I'm in a few RPs at the moment, I would not be opposed to doing this. It's been a long time since I RPed and could definitely use some feedback from someone. :)

All right, that sounds great! I'd like to just do something...you can choose from either fantasy (involving dragons, maybe?) or romance, or real-life drama or something. And I'll get chars up ASAP. I'm a teensy bit busy but I'll get to you when I can.

I'd appreciate a mentor for my mediocre ability at writing. Are you still taking students? I'd like to become a student under you.

*creeps in and glances around*

Would you, by any chance, still be taking students? One can always use critique and I've never RP'd one on one >.>

Well then, PM me with some character info and a little bit of info about you, and I'll take a peek. I'm still open for new roleplayers! :D

Oh, oh, oh! Pick me, pick me!

Now that I've got your attention, I'd like to see if you would please mentor me.

See, thing is, I'm not a crap-tastic role-player or anything (At least I don't think I am.), but I know I could use some improvement. Heck, I can always use some improvement.

So, what do you say?
With love,
Chaoicangel

Same as aforementioned, send me PM with what you want to roleplay, who posts first, what character you're using, and some info about you. General info, like what you like to roleplay about and whatnot.

Hi there!
I'm pretty lost and really confused about the site...
What would you suggest for a lonely newb?
I haven't found real roleplay for a while so....I'm pretty rusty too.
Well, thanks in advance!

Well, since I'm all booked, I'd suggest you try going to Rigel, he's a great mentor. :) And I'm sure he'd be happy to mentor you. :) Good luck learning your way around. :)

From what you can read in the first post in this thread, DraconicArcania is obviously booked fully. How about you ask another Mentor or user offering help??
