I have to admit that I didn't do so well in the first two RPs I was in. But, I learned how to act appropriately and attempted to correct my errors. Now I am being told I am a terrific RPer. I have to say I find it rather flattering, but I couldn't have done it without the help of everyone else here. I have never had so much fun doing anything else like I enjoy helping to write in these stories.

I have taken my vast knowledge of movies, radio shows, and real life experiences and put them in the RPs and I seem to be doing ok. I know that the first two RPs I was in died because of me. And I am sorry for that. But coming to this site and sharpening my writing skills has given me the possibility of a career in the writing field. I had a latent talent in writing that didn't show up until I came here. Therefore, I thank my fellow Spidweb RPers for giving me the chance to write and for showing me a talent, I didn't even know I had.

Thank you.

Yes, eventually the good roleplayers find a corner for themselves, thus becoming an elitist bunch that in some cases can be hard to join. All sorts of high standards and demands frighten people away, like Arancaytar mentioned.
Good RP requires work, there really is no way around it. Someone to keep an eye on the "goals" and making sure that key characters don't die or get ignored. Also to make sure the world where the characters live works. Dungeon master, anyone?

And yes, I am ArcticWolf.

*mutters something about weather balloons*

I think that battles are the least important and least fun part of RPs, which is one of many things that the arena has gotten right. Challenge matches make battles into designing skill, rather than crap like Gekitou.

RPs are just like movies in that respect: Where the plot is good and well-thought, you don't need the huge amount of carnage and battles. If the movie makers replace plot with fighting and special effects, what you get is complete trash.

Oh, btw. Weather balloons??? IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Ruined RPs (2)_files/confused.gif)

Maybe he's making a reference to The Prisoner.

there is no reference by Drakey to the links in my sig. end of story.

Urban wisdom is not actual wisdom. It's more like the seemingly philosophical statements that sometimes leak out of my strange mind through my mouth, or in the case of message boards, my hands.
