Hello everyone, I apologise for the terrible cheesy title :P, But to the point, the purpose for this thread is mainly to recruit more people to roleplay, I know from experience that their are a lot of people who are interested but for various reasons are too shy or worried to actully join.
So here I will just brieftly talk to these people as well as others. The roleplaying community is always helpful and kind, nobody will laugh at you if you mess up or get angry or whine at you, Everyone has to start somewhere, We have lots of helpful members on the site who will offer their advice and help new rpers, im sure their are even some who will "teach and train" new rpers.
The first thing you should do when you join a Rp is to check out the OOC, here on the first post you should find the important information and rules to the roleplay, you should always check these as ever rp has a different set of rules and limits.
The best thing to do when you begin rping is to be serious about it, you should also take your time when writing your post and check the spelling and grammer, so the post is at least readable and understandable and finally and most importantly, have fun :). Also if someone gives you some constructive criticism, instead of taking it to heart, getting worried and avoiding posting again, you should look at your post and see what you could of improved, Then you should take note of it and try again, and over time you will get better and better :D remember, people are only trying to help you, they are not not being nasty :)
Sha has very kindly and helpfully written a guide to roleplaying, to help people, its a great read so please check it out.
The site at a whole at the moment seems to be lacking rpers, especially in the smaller rps, so this thread will also be a place to advertise your rp to other members, hopefully current rpers will also explore other rps and take part in them.
The Vice Roleplays
If you are in charge of a Rp and want to have an advertisement to your rp, just reply to this thread and il add the rp to the list :), also the ones ive added in already are rough and to give shape to the post, so if the people in charge of the rps can give me the information they want in the description ect, il sort it out for them.
The Anime Vice Roleplays
Name: Approaching Apocalypse
Description: This Rp is more Unique, There's no character creation in this Rp. We have a definite main character or two and everyone controls that person. Story-chain is more like a communal and interactive story-telling game. Someone starts the story with an opening post in a way he/she leaves the story open and offers two or more choices to continue the story. The next poster choses one of those options to follow and continues the story that way. Then he/she ends it open and offers similarly 2 or more choices. The next poster picks one of those and so on...
