Hey guys, @Xonos_Darkgrate1 here again to bring you yet another guide to making something on the forums. This time, it's
As you can see, there's so much role-play on the forums that it can get hard to navigate through it or even make your own. That's what this guide is for. Read this and follow the instructions more or less to make a great new role-play!!! Don't worry, you can trust me on this since I've probably written more than 20% of the role-plays here on the forums.
Also, if you'd like to get introduced to role-play(s) then you can go to another topic I made for that. HERE. This topic is to help you write a good role-play, and I hope it helps!!!
Think through it. Listen, you might think you have a great idea, but chances are, it's great but NOT original. And here on the forums, you get more readers depending on how fresh your new story is in terms of originality. Look through the forums, check other people's role-plays, and ask around. Don't be afriad to advertise your own story. Who knows, maybe someone ALREADY made a role-play similar to your idea and wouldn't be too happy if you made a copy.
Prepare. There's a few things you need to know about role-play. One, that there's different TYPES of role-play, and two, you can't expect your role-play to get super successful or popular within a day of its release. If you want people to be expecting your role-play, that's all the more reason to promote it before making it. When you make a role-play, always remember to come back as much as you can to keep it going. There might not be many people interested at first, but that might be because your role-play isn't that interesting yet. Fill your role-play with great stuff, people will come soon afterwards.
This is similar to the make your own team or group Guide in the sense that you can't be lazy when making your topic. Listen, no one wants to be part of a role-play when the first post is, "This is my role-play, have fun!" That doesn't sound very fun now does it? Fill, It, Out! Write a good first chapter or introduction. Don't leave it up to the reader to decide if he/she wants to join, make your role-play so interesting that they CAN'T refuse.
Ask for advice and participaters. Ask people who write role-play for some tips. Don't be afraid to do so, since, if your role-play turns out to be terrible you'll be even MORE embarrassed so it'd probably be better to just suck it up and ask people for advice. You don't even need to ask role-play authors, you can just ask random people about what they like in different role-plays. Use your collected data to make a role-play that'll appeal to them.
Don't go over the top. Some people have done this before, and it got ANNOYING. When you make your role-play, please try your best NOT to make it to obsessive in the sense that you let your role-play personality permeat everything you do and everyone you come into contact with. I did this before, and I'm sure that I annoyed A LOT of people then. (I still do, but for different things ) So please, keep your role-play to that specific topic. Don't let it influence everything you do, or worse, make others obsess over it WITH you. Anyways, I don't think you'll do this, but it's still possible so just be careful.
Anyways, follow these steps and you'll probably make an interesting enough role-play topic. Have fun!
