If you are a newer member, you may have heard about "RPing" and wondering what it is.
Here is a brief description of what RPing is.
What is RPing?
RPing is Role-Playing. Where members make an OC (Original Character) and play as it in the said RP.
How do you make an OC?
Often times, RP's will give you a form, and you can make a character off of that.
Here is a typical form:
Relationships (If any):
And here is a example OC:
Name: Laura Miller
Personality: Caring, Loving, Kind
Appearance: Brown hair, blue eyes, freckles, glasses, black skin, tall, average weight
Likes: Cats, fluffy things, dogs, knitting
Dislikes: Bullies, sarcasam, hate
Friends: Lily, Anna, Joe, Billy, Keith, Talia
Relationships (If any): None
And here is another one:
Name: Lily Tanner-Smith
Gender: Trans- Female
Personality: Lily is very self consicous, because they are trans. Lily is a caring person. They will stand up for anyone except themself. Lily has a focused mind set. You can't get them off of focusing on an assignment.
Appearance: Lily has blonde hair in a pixie cut. They love the color pink, and always wear it somewhere. Lily has blue eyes. Lily also has a tiny moustache, since she was a male. Lily also has some freckles
Likes: Nice people, Teddy bears, graham crackers
Dislikes: Being bullied, bullies, mean people
Friends: Laura, Joe, John, Millie, Sierra
Relationships (If any): None
OK, but how do you RP?
It is very simple :)
Here is an example;
First you type your characters name, lets use Laura.
Then, you add a colon,
If your character is going to talk, then add a quotation mark
And then add what your character is going to say.
Laura: "Hi Lily! How are you?
Then, you add another quotation.
Laura: "Hi Lily! How are you?"
Then, you add "I asked" or "I tell" Sometimes you can add it before you speak
After you speak: Laura: "Hi Lily! How are you?" I ask Lily.
Before you speak: Laura: I see Lily and greet them, "Hi Lily! How are you?"
Now that you know how, here is a conversation:
Laura: "Hi Lily! How are you?" I ask Lily.
Lily: Laura greets me. "I'm doing ok." I tell her just above a whisper.
Laura: "Whats wrong?" I ask Lily.
Lily: Laura asks what's wrong. I pull her into a seperate room. "My brother is being mean."
Laura: "Oh, thats not good!" We should go to lunch.
Lily: "Ok." I say and go to the cafeteria.
Here are some example plots from various RP's:
The realm of the fae has always lived in peace for as long as any faerie can remember. Until a mysterious disease the fae call the Shadow that is weakening and killing the inhabitants of the magical realm even though they are immortal. The Shadow gets its name from the secretive way it kills: weakening the body and the powers in a way that seems completely natural until it overpowers them entirely. The fae are slowly being wiped out, and the elders have heard the stars speak-

Party RP by Amylydian_The_Lemon
You must follow the Plot when you're RPing.
A collab RP is where two (or more) NMGers combine, to make an RP. It's a normal RP just two people make it :)
an example of one (two) is Quest for Two Kingdoms- By Freida Alice and Grace, and Miss Carolotta's Royalty Camp by Mariam the weedy sea dragon and Katia (Mimikitkat)
Premade characters are pretty self explanatory ;)
Basically the RP makers, make the RP characters so you don't have to. :D
IRL RP's are RP's where you play as yourself. IRL stands for In Real Life.
Simple RP Rules
-No Powerplaying/Godmodding (Powerplaying/Godmodding is basically playing for someone else)
-Give others the chance to post! If you're character asks a question, and the other RPer doesn't respond right away, wait a little! They will eventually ;)
Pretty simple right? Have fun!
Some open RP's:
