Hi all.

I'd like to request that one of our roleplay leaders offer a 101 class on roleplay, and maybe an event to og along with it. I'd love to try out roleplaying, but don't know where to start, so a 101 class would be extreemly helpful for me.

A pm time would honestly work better for my schedule, if at all possible.

Thanks in advance,

K.

I'm a pretty avid roleplayer myself, but I'm not too terribly familiar with the lore of Guild Wars. I'm not specifically a roleplayer leader, but I'd be happy to put on a roleplaying 101.

Have one set-up tentatively for august 3rd from 5-6PST. Still developing what will take place, which is the main reason it's tentative.

I'd love to attend, though I'm afraid I'm lacking on GW2 lore as I just wandered in to get a PvP fix...  I had almost forgotten how enjoyable it is to run with Gaiscioch <3

Anyway, back on topic, I love role playing and I've done some RP 'lessons' (immersion grouping) for one of my heavy RP guilds in another game (I was the RP division leader.)   

Do post locations so I can try to find ya'll, I miss RP so much *stifles a sniffle*

Here's the event I laid down if you'd like to look into it. Also, in the RP guide in this section, there's a few lore videos if you'd like to check them out. I'm no lore buff myself in the GW universe, but I'm more than happy to learn

Awesome. Hoping we can get a good turnout. It's going to be mostly 101 and teaching however.

Thanks Ragmar for the great introduction in RP online. I've always wanted to get into RP in mmos but just never found the right group or guild to get started with. It's always been something that interested me even all the way back to my days of playing Ultima Online and that was at least as far back as 2001. (earlier probably)

The few times I tried I found that so many of the RPers were elitists and I couldn't fit in with them. I didn't want to be "socially awkward" in game and out so I gave up on that. I hopped into your event today and was pleased at how you handled the general noobiness of the fresh faces. I also like how you passively told that one guy to drop it essentially, and to let us learn and play the game our way. It was guys like him that kept me from RPing before.

Hope to see some more chances to learn some more and maybe get to take part in some RP stories. It would be really cool if we could get some more GSCH people in on it.

I had no idea that there was an unofficial RP server (tarnished Coast) when I started playing GW2. I started at launch though and the thing that made me join SoR was the amazing story of this guild and one of its members that got Arena Net to name a server after him. I thought to myself, "I have to join that server, and that guild to see what its all about."

This has been the best guild I have been in in all my years of playing online games. Everyone (or at least everyone I come into contact with) is so nice and understanding, especially when it comes to things out side of the game.

Anyway, I'm rambling. Thanks again for the event. Hope to see you guys again soon.

No problem Gideon. I was glad you came out and happy to see how quickly you and K were catching on. I think the future for GSCH's GW2 RP is looking quite bright. Keep your eye's peeled for the next 101 event, as well as for other RP events. Right now, I'm in the process of developing the second one, so it should be in the next week or two.

I totally agree with you. Gaiscioch is an awesome family, and I love it here. I don't really ever plan on going to another guild in all my livelong days.

Well I think you did a fine job of handling things Ragmar, you have far more patience than I in certain situations.  I was also unaware there was an unofficial RP server, but frankly if that is the way they RP over there I have little interest.  I guess I do not believe RP is about rules and regulations, but rather it is more about the story itself; written by multiple authors, in real time.  Guidelines are fine, necessary even, but there's a point... *shrugs and drops it* 

Anyway, Traapp and I are almost always up for RP so feel free to toss either of us a whisper if you'd like to practice.  We did RP immersion classes for our guildies so no pressure and we'd be happy answer any general questions about RP'ing that might come up.  Unfortunately I work all week so I don't get to play much as Traapp, but he gets bored so I'm sure he'd love the company! :P 

Looking forward to the next session.
