PostSubject: Gameplay: Anatomy of a post   Sat Mar 22, 2008 9:50 pm

If you have never played an online RPG we try to make it as easy as possible to follow. For those who haven't played before, your basic posts tell a story. Be creative! There are many ways of doing things. But here is what a basic post should contain:

What the person is doing.

Yep, you got it. The talking is important, but unless you have some action it doesn't always work. (there are exceptions.) But a post looks best and is more interesting if there is some action.

Example:

Posted By: Adi Gailla

Adi walked into the deserted rebel hanger and scanned the room. The floor was littered with debris and the walls looked just as bad. "What happened here?" She whispered to herself.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted By: Master Windu

"It looks bad doesn't it?"

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted By: Adi Gailla

Adi looked over at Master Windu and nodded. "What could have done so much damage?" She asked. She picked up what was left of a droids arm and examined it.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted By: Master Windu

"Hey, that thing on the wall looks weird, I'll take a look at it."

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Which posts held your attention? What added interest and made it look and sound interesting? Don't run away now, you don't have to be a good story teller. Just tell us what is happening, plain and simple. Now lets see what it would like like if Master Windu had told us what was happening:

Master Windu walked into the room being carefull to avoid stepping on somthing. "It looks bad doesn't it?" he said.

Winidu saw something, or part of something, hanging from a far wall. "Hey, that thing on the wall looks weird, I'll take a look at it." He said as he started walking towards it.

Ta-Da! See, you don't have to be real good at writing, just do the best you can. If you can't come up with detailed and colorful description for whats going on, keep it basic, that is not a problem.

But I don't know whats around me.

No problem, the point is to describe even basically what you are doing. Walking in, walking out, flying in, flying out, how you said something, just the basics.

And remember, the more you practice the better you'll get. Have fun!
