Proper RPing

So, everyone has their own ways of posting. We all understand that. However, there are some basic things that everyone should keep in mind, while RPing in the Pokemon TRPG.

Real Time RP

As the TRPG is being played online, RPs are to be done in somewhat 'real time'. That means that when you need to get offline (for a longer period of time... such as an hour + ), you must leave.

There are exceptions to this, such as GM quests (which can take a long time), but that is only with the GM's permission.

This may seem a bit strange, though it does provide an aspect of 'realism' to the RP.

Certain users many have the ability to teleport out of an area. Even so, that is only with permission of a GM.

Posting Order

This is not an issue for fields with 1-2 people in them, but for all other cases, this does become an issue; Posting Order.

Please try to 'fit into' the posting order. Say you have 4 people in one field, a proper posting order would be something such as

Person 1
Person 2
Person 3
Person 4

It simply adds to the 'flow'. Having an order such as

Person 1
Person 2
Person 1
Person 4
Person 2
Person 1
Person 3

Becomes quite 'jagged'. Therefore, please try to keep a proper posting order, as best as you can.

Field Limits

As with real life, you can't be in more places then one. So, if you are in a field, you cannot be in other fields at the same time.

Again, the exception would be if you are on a quest that gets paused by the GM. You can go on RPing in other fields, while on these prolonged quests.

Grammar and Spelling

Okay, so we are not all English majors here, but it is to be expected that players will take some time to properly word/spell check their posts. This means things like

Quote :
Jump in air and slash your arm

are not allowed at all. This is completely broken English, and simply takes away from the RPing experience. Now, something such as

Quote :
The Scyther jumped into the air, her arm crossed over her chest. As she fell from the air, she made a quick slash and cut towards the enemies arm, hoping to disable him.

would be. Sure, it has a spelling error, and a bit of incorrect grammar, but you can easily pick out what the player is saying.

Therefore, if you see players simply spamming emoticons as their RP text, or having completely unreadable posts, please PM the TRPG Mod and it will be looked at.

Post Size

In light of countless Players abusing the right to participate in a way that does not abuse the creativity that a quality TRPG should have, ALL Players will be required to post a minimum of five sentences in each of their posts. Some exceptions may apply, such as posts that are strictly in direct dialogue with another Player. Otherwise, you are now expected to add sufficient description, depth, and effort into each of your posts. This way, everyone is on the same level of expectation and general predicted speed of responsiveness.

If you see people CONSTANTLY making small posts (either near or below the minimum) try to help them out, but if not, inform TRPG administration.

Staying in Character

Remember, you are playing an RPG, not typing on a message board (exceptfor the Message Board section). So don't be like "Wow, you are level 50, you made a lot of posts!".

God Modding

When responding to a battle post or making a general post, your character is limited to the knowledge that they have gained as a character and the strength/battle skill that is reflective of their Player Level and/or their respective class. In other words, you cannot be omniscient (knowing/sensing/feeling what another Player might be thinking/desiring/warping to) unless they have spoke it themselves, nor can Players be omnipotent (dodging/attacking/1-hit-killing EVERY time).

If you come across a Player who is rightfully doing this, PM them to cease their actions and point them to this post. If they do not comply, you have the right to disregard their post entirely and report them to the GM team.

Keep in mind that there is an expectation of "realism" that we wish to create among Players to ensure a fulfilling RP experience. Those who cannot respect this risk exclusion from the RP.
