Tips for Roleplaying Well - OverviewA lot of people like to assume the persona of a character - someone totally different than themselves - and take them into a new world filled with amazing possibilities. So how does one succeed in an RP setting, where there are no points and no set goals? How do you maintain other peoples' interest in your posts and get them to respond to you? Here are a few tips to make the most out of your roleplaying experience.

He and Kyle knew each other more than they'd ever really been able to grasp, and their antagonism fueled them, brought life to them both. Even if they couldn't stand each other right now, Cartman had a brief glimpse of the future as he looked at his technically dead companion. One day, they would be friends.
His lip trembled. It went beyond that stupid contract. Oh, sure, that agreement would have to be upheld on principle, but it wasn't the only reason Cartman had to save his friend. After all, anyone could perform the unspeakable and somewhat embarrassing acts tha
