Teach me Mogster! ( A RP Guide)

Post by Juss on Sat Mar 28, 2009 3:12 pm

First, I would like to state why I'm doing this!

I have been roleplaying for quite a while by now and in time, I have learned a lot. Fortunately I have been lucky enough to take part of RP-s which were made by the best of the best. And that's why I have reached a level where I don't need to follow guides or tips. Everything has become natural for me and so I thought, why not to share my knowledge. Especially because I hadn't read a RP guide before I was a decent RP-er and that's a fact I am not happy of.( Once, I was even kicked out from a RP because I didn't follow the main rules.) But I don't wish to waste any more of your precious time so I get started with it!

Teach me Mogster - Lesson 1, The Basics!

Two small and pink pets were standing on the shore of a source of water. Or is it better to be said that they were on the edge of a slough. Indeed, they were in a swamp, surrounded by high thatch and the sounds of different animals. One of them, who was standing on the left, was huger and seemed to be more mature as well as more experienced. The other one, on the right side, was a small and young moogle. One who still had a lot to see and hear. Fortunately he was standing in the front of a great and well known master, called Mogster. A smile covered both faces.

'' Master Mogster, are you going to teach me today?'' The young one asked with enthusiastic tone. His eyes were filled with pure pleasure and excitement. Mogster nodded.

'' Today you are going to learn about a great thing, but in the same time, about a dangerous thing. It's roleplaying!'' Mogster told. His voice was filled with glory and power. And his chest was pushed upwards, to look more powerful and serious.

'' That's cool. Finally I can learn about roleplaying. So, what are we going to roleplay about?'' Young one asked. Certainly, he couldn't wait to start roleplaying. But Mogster started laughing.

'' Not yet, not yet. Before you start roleplaying, there are many things you should do. First thing is that you have to make sure you have time to spend.'' Mogster blinked eye to his young student.

'' I got time ... now can we start please master?'' He asked eagerly. But Mogster didn't seem to be so active.

'' No, of course not. Rushing with roleplaying is the biggest mistake one can do. Take your time. Also, patience shows your respect towards me and everyone else. Now Mosh, there are other things besides time you need before starting. Always be sure to have a dictionary near, even if we are talking in our native language.'' Mogster told. His voice was cold and calm. Mosh, yeah it was the name of the student, smiled to Mogster.

'' Why do I need a dictionary? I know how to spell in my language don't I?'' He asked with astonished yet with bored tone. Mogsters eyes got wider.

'' You don't seem to know nothing at all ... If you are roleplaying, you are taking roles of different personalities. Ones who may use different words than you do every day. And that's why you may make mistakes. After all, grammar is the foundation of communication and understanding.'' Mogster told with more emotional voice. The impatience and lack of respect that Mosh showed to him was slowly making him angry.

'' Oh well ... Now let's start?'' Mosh asked, faster than he had done it before. And then a huge laughter filled the air. It seemed as it was Mogster who caused it. His face was full of pleasure and happiness.

'' You are a funny young one Mosh. And there is a lot for you to learn before starting roleplaying. If you have make sure you got a dictionary and time, preferably half a hour or even more, you have to think up a character. For a RP you would like to join. Finding the right one might be hard or easy. But the character you create will be the one whose role you will take for whole RP, usually.'' Mogster wanted to continue but was interrupted by Mosh who once again had run out of patience.

'' Yeah, I can do this. How's that: My name is Josh Mosh, I got brown hair and am cool? It's good right?'' Mosh asked eagerly. He was waiting for a positive answer but was disappointed. Mogster smiled friendly.

'' What did I tell you before? Use your time well. This is certainly a rushed character who is missing a lot. First, your name. It's a thing that you will be stuck with till the end. And you don't want to get a lame one like Josh Mosh. Also your name will usually be the first thing that others get to know about you and that's why it will give the first impression of you to them. For example, Master Mogster is a brilliant name. Everyone understand that I am a master and Mogster hints for my origin. That I'm a moogle.'' Master told and gave a glance to the source of water on his right. A fish had popped out for a moment.

'' Other than name, you must always give as much details as possible about your outfit and look. You only told that you have brown hair but what about your height and weight? And how does your face look like? Showing a picture is the easiest choice as a good character appearance description leaves room for fantasy and creativity which are the main parts of roleplaying. True, if you lack skill in terms of describing, what you certainly do Mosh, just provide a picture to avoid confusing things.''Mogster continued his talk but stopped for a moment to take a deep breath. It finally seemed that Mosh had learned something and was listening to him closely. Or he was just watching the beautiful fishes in the slough and had no time to talk.

'' And when you get done with your appearance, you should start thinking about your attitude. Your personality is certainly one of the most important things to you, even more important thing than your history, story-wise. Because your characters personality will be the thing that leads you trough the roleplay and determines how you act in different situations and how you get finished with the RP. And well, after personality you should talk about your past. This is always a interesting part as this determines the position you start the RP. Are you listening Mosh?'' Mogster told almost instantly when a loud snore had been released by Mosh. It seemed as he had fallen asleep even if watching fishes was quite interesting.

'' Oh yeah, I'm listening master!'' Mosh muttered with low and bored voice. He gave a glance to master and then turned his gaze back to the fishes.

'' When you finally get your character done, it's the time you have to wait for an answer from the roleplay creator. But if you followed my hints and the rules that RP owner stated, the answer should be certain. You will be accepted. And then the fun will start.'' Mogster told. And it seemed that Mosh got filled with excitement and energy. As all of sudden he jumped up and started listening closely to master.

'' Oh yesh. We can finally start roleplaying right?'' Mosh asked with a happy voice. It seemed as only thing he cared about was roleplaying.

'' Well, you seemed so sleepy so let's get a good rest. Always remember that there is no point roleplaying or creating a character when you are sleepy or ill. That could only lead to a bad end.'' Mogster said and turned around. He was going to home now.

'' Come on Mosh!'' He shouted to Mosh who was already left behind by few meters.

'' Gosh ... you know a lot Mogster.'' Mosh muttered alone.

'' Yeah I know!'' Told a familiar voice. Seemed as Mogster was able to hear anything good about himself.

OOC: Well, this was the first part. Hope you like it.
