Hi, I'm Iliara Mustardtop!
The thing about the role-play goes like this:
A few people started creating role-plays, fun stories about what they were doing in Aetherlight. See
Then more people started doing it! And it exploded! What @Xonos_Darkgrate1 is saying I think is that you want to plan out a little bit how you intend to make your story. It's nice to have at least a basic plan so you don't get discouraged or aimless
Some people have created stories in which you can ask to be one of the characters. There is a special role-play section, so those topics should be easier to find. Try Xonos Darkgrate's Aetherlight:Origins, The Elderfun Chronicles by @Jacoby_Elderfun1, or The Arbitrary Antics of Ariella Newheart for example (@Ariella_Newheart).
In order to reference people so that they will be notified, type @ and then the name of the person, with an underscore () between the first and last name. Hope this helps!!:hearteyes:
