Two frequent commenters and contributors–Rhoelyn and Kyraine–brought up to common hurdles to RP in an MMO: Scheduling and Burnout. While solutions for these common complaints have already been discussed, it’s worth discussing them here to figure out how to Problem Solve after one Identifies a hurdle. Getting everyone together for an RP night isn’t easy. [...]
On occasion, we encounter an character who is a bit of lurch. Someone like this guy: A character who is either stupid or willfully obtuse. Dealing with a lurch is no different than dealing with any other difficult character. Some might scream at a lurch, some may ignore a lurch while others just love their [...]

Operation Gnomergon and Operation Echo Isles have been live for 24 hours, beginning the pre-Cataclysm events. How are the events affect your RP? Did you run the event with a gnome or a troll? Did you riff off of the Flyers passed around or was it organized by someone else? How would you rate the [...]
Let me be blunt: I typically hate wacky RP. Zany hijinks and wacky adventures don’t do a thing for me. This is just what floats my boat: A lot of RPers I know and respect have Wacky Adventure Time–so while it doesn’t work for me, it works for someone else. That being said, Bricu has [...]
