of role play
v. role-·played, role-·play·ing, role-·plays
To assume or represent
in a drama; act out: “Participants are encouraged to pass
on leads about jobs... and to role-play interview situations
with each other” (Hatfield MA Valley Advocate).
Role-playing games have
rules and regulations to help all players play certain story.
In most role-playing games,
one person is the referee(In most cases the Room Owner), who
can be thought of as the Editor of the story. The Editor puts
a guideline to where this world or setting takes place. You
and your friends and strangers, as Players, will take a character
in this world, and you will guide your character through that
story as you see fit. Each player takes a different character,
and each character interacts with the other characters. Role-playing
is Fantasy Acting. A good example for you would be someone who
is role playing as a Dragon.. He or she may breathe fire, fly,
or simply just sleep alot in big caves. Role Playings requiresimagination
of you and your character acting in response to the situation.
NO WINNERS, NO LOSERS
In most games;board games,
card games, gambling, and video games. There is a loser and
a winner. There is no way of winning in role play or losing.
One could say that dying would be losing, and some may say dying
might be victory due to the characters goals if you've implemented
any. You may give your character other goals, but your character’s
success at these goals has no bearing on your winning or losing
When its all done and said,
what then? Well then you continue on more Adventures, more quests...
Seek other goals once they are accomplished. Basically whatever
you choose is what you play.
ROLE PLAY GUIDE
For someone who has been
role playing for a long time. I(Phoenix) would say, that I have
seen my fair share of God Moders. God Moders are people who
intently challenge other role playings to a fight, after this
they may lose a fight, or get killed. But claim that they are
immortal and cannot die or they will say "No dude you didn't
kill me.. I dodged it.. and I blocked the sword with my bare
hands while flying in the air shooting flames out of my eyes
and eating a hot dog at the same time!".. Other God Moders
are these big barbarians who can shoot flames from their hands
while weilding an eight foot blade with both hands. Role playing
was mean't for friends to play with each other. So if you run
into a God Moder just ignore them. Try to have fun with your
friends because thats what Role Playing is all about.
