I would love some more information. RP in online RPG is largely something I've only heard about. I used to play as an evil gnome in EQ, but I don't recall ever participating in any actual RP events before. I have tried to set up a couple, but they definitely could have been better. It sounds like fun and I anticipate more information on how it should be done and where or how to find it.

@Palebane

You might want to start with reading back over older editions of this column. ;) Just scroll back to the top of the article and click where it says "Storyboard" in small green text to get a list.

RP isn't always as easy to find in game as you might think; often you need to find other RPers to find out what's going on where, sort of a catch-22. But the good thing is once you find one RPer, if they're any good, the chances are they know just about every other RPer and RP guild on that server.

Finding the RPers also isn't as easy you might think; a thing I've noticed with RP in the MMOs I've played is it's often tucked away into odd little corners, out of the spotlight, ironically; I suspect this is to keep griefers, confused passer-by, and folks who are just not into RP from stumbling into it accidentally, as I once did.

True story: Back in 2006, I was a new to WoW, a lvl 15 or so Forsaken, exploring what there is to be seen just Org, having just taken the Zeppelin there from Lord.

I get as far as Ratchet, and run into one of the houses that line the road that takes you down the hill into the village proper, running smack into two characters in the middle of a RP moment. One of them, who apparently was pretending to own the building I had just entered, immediately began yelling out loud that was I intruding into her home, and who was I, and what was I doing there, etc. etc.. I was so stunned I just said "pardon me, I must have the wrong house" and ran out. I heard them talking about me, out loud, for a good 2 minutes afterward. It was truly surreal.
