RP Guide/What You Need To Know

Post by Dakota on July 19th 2011, 8:35 pm

What We Roleplay
At Banishing Winds, we roleplay with characters that are our wolves we have created. Using one another, we build up a sort of story with our characters in the roleplay. Whether grand adventures or sad happenings, the pack still stay strong, and thats what counts! We roleplay realistic events that could happen among a wild wolf pack, such as hunting prey and fighting to stay alive. This ensures fun and exciting things everday in the roleplay.

Why We Roleplay
In nature, wolf packs are closely bonded and social. We want the same for this pack as well. Our roleplay areas allow our members to interact with one another, creating stories and adventures as they go. This helps to bond and keep our pack close, while giving us something fun to do. If we have something holding us together besides the WQ thread, our members are more likely to stay active and be helpful members.

Where We Roleplay
Our roleplay takes place in the territory of Banishing Winds Pack, one of the many packs that roam the greater Yellowstone Area. The territory holds many animals, including - Elk, Moose, Deer, Cougars, Bears, Coyotes, Boars, and plenty of others.

When We Roleplay
The pack roleplays all the time, whenever possible. There is no time limit of when or when you can't post. This allows the posts to build up over time, creating a history for the pack. For example, if someone posts one day, someone else can still post days later, depending on the activity level. We just don't want someone posting about something that happened awhile ago, when everyone else has moved on. The environment of the roleplay will be updated as the seasons change, maybe for prey abundance or baby animals in the spring.

How We Roleplay
We roleplay here in third person. You are like a story-teller, as if you were explaining the actions of your wolf and its surroundings. An example is below to help you understand:

Correct:
Taru moved silently among the tall trees of the forest, her form hidden well with the backdrop of the shadows. Her ears flicked foward at the sound of something in front of her, nostrils flaring as they strained to identify what exactly. In an istant, a deer fawn burst from its hiding place, panic fueling its foolish decision. Taru burst forward, her paws propelling her to give chase.

Incorrect:
I moved silently among the tall trees of the forest, my form hidden well with the backdrop of the shadows. My ears flicked foward at the sound of something in front of me, nostrils flaring as they strained to identify what exactly. In an istant, a deer fawn burst from its hiding place, panic fueling its foolish decision. I burst forward, my paws propelling me to give chase.
