Hello! I'm Nigel Ekbar!


Well not reallly, but you see what I did there?


This ladies and germs is called roleplay. I spent much of my youth indulging in role play and I can tell you it's the reason why prostitutes see frequent business from me.

Oh alas if only the above statement was role play.


Now to first get to terms with your role you must think of one. Neocron is full of possibilities!

By day you could be a mild manner constructor who helps noobs with weapons and teach them how to survive the harsh world. But by night you are actually a necrophiliac on the run from the cops for sexing your dead friend as grim chasers chewed on his corpse. I'm not suggesting you go this extreme....in fact I think you SHOULD GO MORE EXTREME.

Seriously folks (or not) if I had a "crap" emote I'd defecate in every corner of tech haven and say that I'm in my right to role play that.

Role play isn't just people sitting at a dinner table discussing politics or other such meetings. REAL role play involves scandal and action.

Revan: Let's go on a hunt for the milky ren factory

Brammers: Yay I haven't been this excited since that time I saw my sister naked.

Gunnar: Ach lass ye be a wee fool if ya be travellin' on dem moores at night.

Revan: WTF?

Gunnar: I can't role play a scot?

Revan: you were a scottish? I thought you were a mutant.

and so forth......

Speech and actions really help back up your role. It's okay if you randomly shoot people and pretend to be insane, just as long as you grunt and ramble like a maniac to fit your profile.

PVP is an accepted part of role play. Just make sure it's sticks to your role for example:

Guy: Saluations kind sir, I would like to induldge in the timely sportmanship of PVP with you.

Guy2: This is agreable and I thank you for offer. I do believe my skills are in high regard whilst you shoot like a valetuadanarian.

Guy: Piffle.

This is how you should NOT role play. Instead be more believable.

Guy1: You sexually assaulted my mother and father, ate my sister and stole my prostitute now your gonna fucking pay.

Guy2: Ach lass ye be a wee fool if ya be travellin' on dem moores at night.

Guy1: FFS

So, this is but a rough guide. Now I hope to see some interesting characters roaming free in NC.

This is the FUNNIEST Post i've ever seen on the forums.
And it's oh so true.
Best laughs i ever had in nc was roleplaying.

(btw, it got me cracking up at work, and everyone started looking at me, wondering if i had received a nice joke in my email)

Role play etiquette

Role play isnít all fun and games. There are certain rules and procedures. That 35 yr old virgin called Geoff who role plays a hot blonde prostitute even has to abide by rules and etiquette.

So I will break it down into manageable chunks.


Timing

People need to be aware of the role you are playing and must be ready for role play. Some people may take offence to you running around screaming pretending to be medieval knight if they have not been informed before hand. Trust me I know, I got a restraining order for showing off my sword. Let people know so confusion does not occur between role play and out of character.

Krysm: Iím pregnant with Niddyís baby!

Revan: Joy!

Krysm: And in the game!

Revan: WTF?


Props

Tools of a real rper. Your imagination transforms boring items into props of action and wonder. A mere drom trophy can be turned into a shrine for your drom god, an implant tool is transformed into an artificial insemination device and a beer bottle is your only toilet.

However, if you do use props inform people what is a prop and what isnít. Because if you lend a poker an artificial insemination device their client will look like a fool and have egg on their face if ya know what I mean ;) ;) *nudge* *nudge*


Who has what?

Make sure if you role play a team everyone knows who they are. I myself try to role play in teams. I myself tried to create NADS (Neocronís Amateur Dramatic Society), but no one joined me due to itís school boy name. But that didnít stop me from writing, directing and starring in my own play. In my apartment. Alone. With some hand cream. And a sock. AnywayÖ..

If you donít know who is who you are going to face trouble so discuss beforehand.

Revan: Avast ye! We set sail for port tech haven to plunder it of its dabloons and wenches!

Brammers: Capital idea old bean.

Gunnar: Avast ye! We set sail for-

Revan: Yar I be capiní Revan ye land lubber!

Gunnar: Ye scurvy sea dog Iím da capiní

Sweet Leaf: MUUUUURRRRRRRPPPPP IíM A DROM!


I hope now you understand the way role play works. If you excuse me I must put on a one man show adieu adieu

Crazy, compared to hell demon your writing is of the same level as a 15 item shoping list written by a retarding old lady.

I still like it though :D

Although I'm not Spermy I'll help you.
What Spermy said was: "The scots don't understand it too".

Hi Slith,

Thank you ! I understand very well this spermy's sarcastic quote. (that's why i've answered with sarcasm too) anyway, I was speaking about the following quote :


Guy2: Ach lass ye be a wee fool if ya be travellin' on dem moores at night.

Unfortunately we can not tell you what it means, since it's a part of a secret codemessage for when the brittish isles decide to invade france again.

Brammers

Brammers: Yay I haven't been this excited since that time I saw my sister naked.
...
Brammers: Capital idea old bean.

:lol: I think Brammers has on drugs again! Brammer's ingame character is a sort of a buisness-like person. When he started sounded like a polite English man going "Jolly chap", well you have to ask Crazy, he started that one!

Anyway, excellent guide Hell-demon. ;)

Hi Slith,

Thank you ! I understand very well this spermy's sarcastic quote. (that's why i've answered with sarcasm too) anyway, I was speaking about the following quote :

Essentially - Oh my fair maiden, you are foolish to be travelling on those moors ( english countryside, mostly scrubland and crap - notoriously dangerous areas at night due to bad ground, certain famous murders) During the night.

:p
