Post What is rpg and how do you play?
I have checked numerous posts, including the rpg itself, and I still can't figure out how it all goes together, if someone could point me to a tutorial or tell me how it works that would be great. Thanks.

Well, basically an rpg is a word game.

Err... Ever played those kind of games at camp where someone starts off a story with a sentence and the rest just kinda tag along? Yea. That's an Rpg, except that you need to fill in a lot more info.
So this is how it would look like..

In the camp game.

A : One day I was walking down a road... bla bla bla
B : And then I met 'A' blablabla...


Yea but in Rpg's its a lot longer than that.


Hoped I helped :D

It's more of a story written by many different authors. You write the part of the story from the viewpoint of your own character and how they see the world. The hard part is keeping it all in third person, where you are telling the story of someone else.

So first I have to create a character that Glenwing must approve, and then I can start the story?

You don't have to start a whole new story. You can just post in an existing one, just don't join too late in the story.

But if I start a new story then I have to get an approved character, correct?

To RP at all, you have to have an approved character.

Before you start posting in the RPG section you need a character approved by me so you will need to make an Application within the appropriate forum.
Then you have to make sure it is acceptable by Forums rules, RiderEriel i-luv-saphira, Star Gazer and I will help you with this.
After is is acceptable I shall move it to the accepted Forum and you can start writing.

Easy as 1, 2, 3!
