Role play Guide [ADVANCED].

Post by DeathByEye on April 3rd 2013, 3:33 pm

I: What is Roleplay?




What
is roleplay? Well, the dictionary term for “Roleplay” would stand for
“to experiment with or experience (a situation or viewpoint) by playing a
role.” Pretty much what that means is that “Roleplay” means “taking
the role of any human being.” There are a lot of things you can
roleplay as, such as a person who drives trucks for a living, a person
who is a police officer, a person who deals drugs or weapons, the list
that you could roleplay as is endless. There are limits to who you can
roleplay as also. For an example, you can’t roleplay as Superman and
fly around with superpowers to fight crime or become Spiderman and climb
buildings with nothing but your body and shoot out webs from your wrist
to swing from building to building. However, you could think that
Batman could be roleplayed as because he actually doesn’t have any
superpowers, but he has technology that most people wouldn’t have the
money to afford. Again, the question “what is roleplay” is answered
with “taking the role of any human being” and isn’t more complicated
than that.






II: Common Roleplay Terms





There
are plenty of roleplay terms to learn while you play on any roleplay
server, but it’s best to learn them before you even step foot in any
strict roleplay server. In my mind, there are seven roleplay terms that
I think are the most common. Here is the list of terms and their
meanings.






In Character (IC) -
This term means that anything that happens in the server during
roleplay. A better way to describe this term is that anything that’s
related to your in-game character is In Character.




Out of Character (OOC)
This term means that anything that happens in real life. A better way
to explain this term is that anything that relates to yourself in real
life is Out of Character. Another important thing to remember with OOC
is that any chat that has the “(( ))” around them, means that chat is
OOC and has nothing to do with the roleplay situation you’re in.






Metagame (MG)
This term is the most common term in any roleplay server in
SA-MP. This term means that any information that you achieve Out of
Character, you use In Character. A common example of this is when you
approach a player, they will have a nametag above their head. Let’s say
that you walk up to a man named “Bob Walsh”. The most common way to
Metagame is going up to him and saying, “Hello Bob.” This is not the
right thing to do. The reason why is because that you can’t use Out Of
Character information In Character. There are some cases where you can
use Out Of Character information In Character, but this is one of the
examples where you can’t use it. The way to approach Bob Walsh is
walking up to him and asking, “Hi, what is your name?” even if you see
his nametag above his head.






Powergame (PG)
This term means that you force a roleplay action upon a player or you
do unrealistic actions. If you haven’t played a roleplay server yet and
you’re reading this guide, there are two very common commands that you
will use on this server and on any other roleplay server. They are
“/me” and “/do.” The command “/me” simply describes an action that you
do. An example of this would be “/me walks up to the man.” If you
typed that and hit enter, it would come up in the chat as “Thomas Walker
walks up to the man.” The command “/do” is somewhat the same thing as
“/me”, but it doesn’t include your name at the beginning of the
sentence, but at the end. An example of that is, “/do Airbags are
deployed.” In the chat, it would come up as, “Airbags are deployed.
((Thomas Walker))”






Deathmatch (DM)
This term means that you kill players with no roleplay reason. This is
one of the first rules that appear in any roleplay server’s rule
list. An example of that is where you go up to any random person and
punch them to death or shoot them to death if you have a gun for no
reason whatsoever. In order to kill someone without it being counted as
deathmatching is having a reason for killing them before you actually
kill them. Some good reasons would be that the man talked trash about
you and your family, a person beat up your friends and you want to
avenge them by killing the person, and reasons that are like that.






Revenge Kill (RK)
This term means that you kill someone shortly after they killed
you. An example where you go to the spot where you were killed after
getting out of the hospital, find the person who killed you, and kill
him. This isn’t allowed because in real life, you wouldn’t be able to
do that as you are in the hospital much longer than you are on any
roleplay server and by the time you’re out of the hospital and you head
back to the place you were killed at, they would be gone.






Character Kill (CK)
This is the last most common term that I could think of. This term
means that you kill a character off. This meaning sometimes confuses
people as it’s not an easy to understand meaning. A better way to
explain that is that if you character killed someone with the name of
“John Smith”, they would have to change their character’s name out of
characterly. Once you kill him, he would not be allowed to use that
name ever again and you wouldn’t see that name on the server ever
again. On San Fierro Roleplay currently, you are not allowed to
character kill anyone on the server. In order to proceed with a
character kill, you should have an admin spec the kill, it should be
well roleplayed, and have a screenshot of the player accepting to a
character kill.






III: Common Commands & Chats





On
every roleplay server, there are the same group of chats and commands
that they have. Here is a list of the commands that come with every
server.






Commands





“/me”
This command allows you to describe an action with your character. An
example of this is “/me runs away.” As in the chatlog, it would say,
“John Smith runs away.”


“/do” –
This command allows you to corresponds to your or someone’s “/me”
command. An example of this would be “/do I would fall to the ground.”
corresponding to a “/me” command that would be, “/me punches the man in
the face.”






Chats





IC chat
This is the chat that you talk in characterly with. This doesn’t
require any command to type with. An example of this would be talking
to a guy while you are roleplaying with him. You could say, “Hi, how
are you?” or “What is your name?”






OOC chat -
This is a chat that splits off into two types of chat. Global OOC chat
and Local OOC chat. Global OOC chat is used by typing “/ooc” before
talking. This chat will be seen by everyone who’s playing on the
server. This chat is mostly turned off and you can’t use it unless
you’re an admin. Local OOC Chat is used by typing “/L but in other servers /B” before you
talk. This chat will be seen by anyone who is in a close distance with
you. This isn’t turned off and you can use it whenever, just use it
appropriately, not to stall a robbery when you’re getting robbed by
someone.






Personal Message (PM) chat
This chat is used by typing /pm [playerid] (the number that comes after
a player’s name) before you talk. This allows you to speak privately
with another player without anyone seeing what you said. This doesn’t
allow you to insult another player behind his back to the friend you’re
PMing as that’s OOC insults, which isn’t allowed on most roleplay
servers.

It's a nice guide but I wouldn't call it advanced.
Change the topic name to [Basic] and it's great!
