What is Roleplay? (Cooperative Writing)
This is a quick reference guide, and is not meant to be extensive or to cover all forms of roleplay. Term usage also differs from place to place. It's a big internet!
ROLEPLAY: Cooperative writing.

Roleplay is turn-based cooperative writing, typically between two or more 'partners'. It comes in a variety of flavors and types, as each player brings their own twist and style to the table.
Most commonly, each player has a character that they control the thoughts and actions of. (It is considered impolite to control someone else's character without their permission.) Roleplay can be something you do for fun, or a way to develop your writing style and original characters. Or both at once! It can be anything, really. It's a little like writing a book with a friend.
Out of character. (You're talking, not your character).
In character. (Your character is speaking and acting, not you). It is best to always keep IC and OOC separate, as a character's though

I've been drawing all my life and I'm constantly trying to get better.

I love drawing creatures, aliens, and dragons and I think I'm rather decent at drawing them. However, I draw very few humans, landscapes, mechanical or architectural drawings, not that I don't like them, I'm just not good at them. One day I plan to fix that.

What's your name on Spore?
GarrettRS Featured By Owner Edited Jul 10, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Same as my DeviantART name. [link]

I'm actually following you on Sporepedia. Thus how I knew you had a DA account.

Curious as to why you are watching my dA account from TWO of your own. That certainly is unusual - given the one you previously operated is three years old.
GarrettRS Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, my previous account is currently unreachable. I got a nasty computer virus and it wiped out a lot of stuff, including the password to the other account.

But, I still love the 'classic' 70's-80's kit-bashed spaceships, so, I'm watching you on this account too.

First up, welcome aboard and thanks for explaining - and I best explain my inquiry.

I had to fight a horrible legal action against a Japanese manga company in 2013 who illegally utilized my designs, their shapes, even the names and in at least two instances descriptions without permission by copying virtually my entire back-catalogue of art and republishing approximately twenty percent of it in the form of comic book art which it was claimed (by their legal council) was "inspired by" my art, which despite their arguing otherwise, consisted of their using my art and then claiming legal rights over the designs and they had prior to this 'watched' my account for about five months from three different dA accounts (now deactivated) so I'm just a bit suspicious now of blank accounts (accounts which collect art, but don't make it) or multiple accounts.

I eventually was forced (after they ignored polite legal requests) to sue the living crap out of them and they subsequently lost as I had intellectual rights documentation dating back at least thirty years in the case of numerous designs.

And again recently I had the instance of a Russian Federation member who was copying my work, re-drawing and re-imagining it and marking it with commentary in their own language and changing the designs a bit to make them look new, but the changes were such that it was easy to see what their inspiration was and thus, again, annoyingly it became necessary to warn them off. As of this time, all of that art has been taken off of the web, although I am watching to see if it resurfaces in another form, or published.

Sadly, this is the result of deregulation and of certain persons thinking they can just help themselves. Anyway, I want this commentary to sound anything other than abusive so thank you sincerely for replying and I just wanted you to know why I asked. I'm just acting to protect my intellectual property. It's silly really, if I was still publishing (two books of plans that I created in the Nineties are currently unavailable) there would not be an issue at all - and with any luck I can keep you entertained. If you have any particular ideas for a craft that you think would work, send me a note and I'll see what I can come up with!
