Anonymous asked: ((ooc: I don't know how to state my character's weakness anything else than OOC. Do you have suggestions on how to do it IC?))
2omethiing2ollux: awesome-a-nator: Read a roleplayers OOC page if they have one, to see what genres are okay to roleplay with them. Read their headcanons. Read their disclaimers. Read everything important specified on their page before roleplaying with them. It’s common courtesy and hey, not everyone plays their characters the same way as they are portrayed in canon. People spend their...
Carly's ridiculous guide to tumblr roleplay!
voodooleviathan: silentmessiah-deavtivated235667: Right so sometimes I see people make guides on how to roleplay, and I’m like “Yeah!” but then stuff is left out that other guides cover and I’m like “Yeah!” and then it gets me thinking: Why not just make a giant catchall? Yes! Perfect! So here we are, my guide to roleplaying! Read More I may as well reblog this, all things considering.
'Meet the Role Player' Pages
‘Meet the Mun’ or ‘Meet the Role Player’ pages can be lots of fun, but don’t feel that they’re necessary! Sometimes you want to RP to get away from the real world, and if that includes wanteing to get away from people knowing you then that’s okay! However, if you do want to put one of those pages on there some things you might think about adding are: ...
Roleplaying Relationships: A Guide
ascendedprotege: The fact is that almost everyone roleplays relationships, nearly every character on here has shown some romantic interest, and will at one point involve their character in some kind of romance, whether reciprocated or not. These things are usually very important to the characters and players, and thus prone to quite a bit of drama! Here are the main focuses that have lead to...
A Guide to Constructive Criticism of a...
timaeusdeclaro: First, you want to ask yourself a couple of questions. Are they AU? If yes, STOP. Stop what you are doing right now and think about what you want to criticize. If they are doing something that is impossible in canon, turn and walk away. They’re AU. Alternate Universe. Whatever they do is none of your business. A lot of people who RP here have already broken canon from the moment...
trickyannihilation: Read More This isn’t a roleplaying tip, more like a rant from my roleplaying blog. But I felt like it should be posted here too, read or do not, it’s up to you.
Using the draft function
The draft function is a super easy way to save posts for later, so you don’t have to go searching through your dash to find the post you were supposed to reply to, or to save that long post for when you’re ready to work on it again. The draft button is right up in the upper right hand corner of your posting area, just click the little drop down menu and click ‘save as...
Ahaha I have twenty things in the drafts.

Tumblr Extensions - Unfollower Hater
The Tumblr Unfollower Hater can be very useful! Although you have to be careful not to get upset when someone unfollows you. This way you can keep track of any blogs that changed their URLS, unfollowed you, or totally deactivated! It will have a little notification pop up with the number of people who have unfollowed you since it was last clicked on, some stats, and a link to each URL that has...
Writing Fight Scenes
Writing fight scenes can be very difficult, and it’s hard to toe the line between being a good fighter and god modding. When done right though, they can be great to roleplay and help advance your plot a lot! They can also be lots of fun, because who doesn’t like getting their character into a bit of trouble now and then? Here are some basic things to remember during a fighting...
Your blog’s layout is so important when it comes to roleplaying! Not only should you make sure to have one that’s easy to navigate; it should have some information about your character, and it usually is nice when it seems to reflect that character itself a bit! Now let’s say you’re a very fun, cheerful person in real life. You enjoy bright colors and soft animals and all...
I’m sure you’ve seen them- things like “Magic Anon Monday!” and “Leave a word in my ask for a headcannon about it!”, they flutter around RP blogs all the time. Sometimes the things people send you are great, they can be really funny or even help give your plot a push it needed. But they can also get very obnoxious. A good general rule for reblogging ask prompts...
lexcorpslex asked: ((Your blog is awesome. I'm trying it out now and it's really helpful :D))
Here is a screenshot from my dash today. Does it look familiar? Super long roleplaying posts can take up lots of room on your dash, to the point where you can spend a lot of time scrolling just to get past that. Who wants to have to do that? Cutting your posts is important, and it can seem rather rude not to. It’s really simple too! Just go to your reply and select the text you...
Word from the mod
Sorry about the delay in getting this thing up and moving guys! I hope the three posts that are up are helpful at least! Hehe it’s hard running a RP blog and this, along with all my school work and stuff! I have many many things in the drafts though, so I’ll be trying to crank some of those out soon! I am however looking for a bit of help though! It would be nice to have a second mod...
Greeting your followers
Greeting your followers can be a very easy way to make RPing buddies! Whenever you get a little notification on your dash that someone new has followed you, copying and pasting the text into a new text post (or pressing the link if you have Missing E) and tagging the user with their username can help start an RP with them. Just insert a generic greeting! Even if it’s just a...

haughtydelinquent asked: This blog is beautiful. I know having guides to one trim posts, setting up sideblogs, and turning on replies and things of the like would be super useful so I can link it to people when need be. <3
Picking a URL and Tracking Your Tag
One of the hardest things to do when you’re first starting a RP blog is picking a URL. A lot of the good ones have already been taken, but with a bit of creativity, you c an find one that you like! Here are a few tips: Don’t use numbers! They look bad and sound kind of lame to tell people. Try to avoid hyphens (-), you can’t track them! Try to make it relate to your...
Reblogging as Text
One of the first and most important rules of RPing on tumblr is reblogging as text! If you don’t know how to do it, I’ve found this handy gif! Sometimes you may be on mobile, or for other reasons you can’t reblog as text. That’s okay! But if you can help it, you really need to try and remember to do this. It makes everything so much easier for everyone! You can see...
