    Guide to Roleplay

    RPing is changing ones behaviour in order to assume a role, in this case a brand new character; given attributes by you. You can only use information that is given to you ICly, this means while you're in character and information granted to you by another player on OOC is to be ignored entirely.

    OOC is otherwise known as being 'Out of Character', when speaking out of character players are encouraged to use parentheses or brackets to allow others to understand that; E.g.
    (Hello, do you know where the bank is)
    IC on the other hand is the opposite as it means In Character, this means you have forgotten about your real identity and have assumed a new role, sort of like acting.

    When RPing you are encouraged to use correct grammar and spelling as it makes it easier to read, good sentence structure is also needed in order to get an RP status higher than 2. RP Status' allow the staff members to know how you are at RPing and the higher your RP status the more opportunities the game has for you. Below are some examples of the RP status' granted for the amount of effort:

    RP Level 1:
    Benjamin was bare walking down the street cause he needed a relaxed time.
    Benjamin made his way down the street for some fresh air.

    RP Level 2:
    Benjamin made his way down the extended street, the dust kicked up onto his feet as he breathed the fresh air.

    RP Level 3:
    Benjamin strolled carefully down the extended but dusty street, the dust engulfed his feet; causing an intense feeling to tingle his senses as he willingly inhaled the fresh air.

    RP Level 4:
    Benjamin ambled his path down a granular path, briefly allowing the dust to indulge his skin; relieving him of any unwanted stress. He would begin to respire the fresh air, allowing it's calming essence to pursue his lungs.

    Attack emote:
    Benjamin stared at the man before him, taking out his gun he would aim it directly at the man's chest. Shaking it from side to side he began to hesitate, not knowing whether the gun was to be fired or if he should drop it; not ruining his life. "I'm sorry." He said in a sincere tone before pulling the trigger, if the bullet was to hit him; he would be injured or killed.

    They would then use a counter, the shot can be fired after 25 seconds if a defence emote is not used during the counter; below is an example:

    Defence emote:
    Benjamin saw the bullet and quickly moved

    An RP status is granted for the above if it is at a constant degree, it must always have the desired attributes and it must be noted that a 4 is rather hard to have constantly. An RP status is required for things such as ranks.

    An essential part of RPing is emoting, emotes are used to express what your character is feeling but also to articulate their actions to those around them. Emoting can be used to initiate attacks, if this is the case a counter is needed and a certain amount of lines are needed.

    For a passive attack a minimum of two lines must be written, whereas for an attack that has the intent of causing damage a minimum of three lines must be written and for both a counter must be used; this counter will inform the user which attack can be used after a period of time. A passive attack can be used at 10 seconds and an attack with the intent of causing harm can be used at 25 seconds.
