Have you ever read a manga and then get to a colour spread and you’re like “this is not how I imagined how they would look why is this fucker over here purple”

I made a slideshow about how to create a fictional character… I got most of the information from the ‘start writing fiction’ (free) course on the OpenUniversity website and found it incredibly useful so here’s a visual version for you :)

Making this was so painful because i could only imagine what these characters would be like in smash

Advice: I've been getting a lot of anxiety on here lately. I had someone who was really nice to me suddenly start ignoring me. I thought asks were being eaten, but eventually they said I should have taken the hint. It really hurt, because I don't see why they couldn't have politely told me what was wrong. I try so hard to be kind and respectful to everyone. I love it here and I love roleplaying, so I could never leave. I guess on advice, how to you not let rude muns get you down?


In my opinion, I don’t think it’s possible to not feel a little hurt when something like that happens. It’s not so much not letting yourself feel a little hurt, so much as not lingering on it.

There’s nothing wrong with feeling like what they did was wrong and rude, but remember they are just one person. And that one person probably had no intent to hurt you. And even if they did, you’re still here and you just have to look at it the same way as if they deleted or left tumblr or went on a hiatus. In other words: move on. Easier said than done but that’s the truth. Invest yourself in your other threads, make some opens, plot with some new people, maybe use some masterlists and such to find new people or to advertise your own blog (check our affiliates page).

Feeling upset over any kind of loss is absolutely natural. Just remember that, then take a deep breath and keep on trucking. It’s a cliché, but in my experience there’s nothing else you can do.

What's the bystander effect?


It’s not “roleplay lingo.” It’s a sociological concept that suggests people are actually less likely to help you if you are in distress in a crowd when there are others around who could help instead. It’s linked closely to the idea of diffusion of responsibility.

I’ve written several papers on the subject, and based an entire project on it for a sociology course I took. It’s really fascinating stuff. But don’t get me started about sociology. We’ll be here all night.

What's the difference between godmoding and metagaming?




The terms are sometimes interchanging depending on where you picked up the phrase. I’ve even seen some people blend them a little with the idea of a type of Mary Sue character.

But from where I picked up roleplaying:

Godmoding is when you make a character that is not yours and that is not an NPC do something without permission of the person whose character it is.

Metagaming is having your character know things they shouldn’t really, such as a thought your partner put their character having in narration but didn’t have them explicitly say, or a fact you learned in an about page or that was told to you in OOC discussion but that by all right your character should have no idea about.

But both things are bad and big no-nos in the roleplay world no matter where you go, so just as long as you don’t do either it doesn’t really matter which you call which.

-The Clerk

the only issue with this is the fact that some characters are just that smart and would pick it up. see: sherlock.

That’s a good point. Though I personally don’t consider that metagaming so long as it is in-character for that person to detect or deduce those facts about someone else.

But if Joe-Schmoe with no psychology degree and an average IQ suddenly knows my character killed his ex-wife three weeks ago and just buried her in a secluded woods 200 miles from the area without telling anybody about it… yeah, that’s metagaming.

Of course I’m using a logical fallacy by taking the example to the extreme, but that’s mostly just for the sake of humor. In all honesty people should know what they’re getting into when roleplaying with “genius” characters, but even then there can and will eventually be lines. And if you aren’t comfortable with a character knowing nearly everything about yours just by the slightest movement of the eye, don’t roleplay with a Sherlock or a psychic.
