What's it for?
The new A.R.S will mainly be a community dedicated to providing quality roleplays and discussion (including tips, tutorials and perhaps workshops). I personally have found it hard to find an engaging and well-plotted roleplay with diverse character. I'm sick of carbon copies of "nice girls who love animals, are shy and have animal ears and tail". (not saying its a bad character, but it is overused. a lot.)
Who can join?
Anyone who has a decent roleplaying skill, basic knowledge of character design and is generally agreed that they don't make Mary Sue's. You don't need to be very active, just enough to show you are alive and maybe chip in a discussion or two. Yes, it is called the "advanced" roleplayer's society for a reason, but I'm happy to let a few people who are learning to the ropes join and grow with us.
How can I join?
I want to make this pretty simple. In the comments, list:
- Why you want to join
- Your current ign
- What you can contribute to the community
- Tell us about your roleplaying experience, and maybe a little about your favorite characters you've roleplayed as
- Tag 1 (or more) people who could vouch that a. you follow general roleplay rules and b. make decent characters
- (optional) Tag a person who might be interested
So, are you some rp master or something?
No, definitely not. I have numerous years of experience, but I know I can be better. I'm just a person who is interested in roleplay and wants to learn and make learning easier. I've always found it hard to find a good roleplay and pleasant people to roleplay with. I've seen some amazing roleplayers but I've always been a little reluctant to force myself in their company. The ARS would give an opportunity for people like me to be around people who generally love to roleplay and stuff.
All that out of the way, here's the current member list:
You can visit the "HQ" at /warp ARS in Sandbox! It isn't much, but its a place to meet up. There's an rp board in the back that we can use once in a while. I keep a record of all roleplays that have used the board, including character details and their ign.
