Setting up a roleplay here is a massive gamble for success, and even when it does get off the ground it can be hard to keep everyone interested. I’ve had my fair share of experience with organising and participating in roleplays, so the stuff here should be universally useful although I’ll relate stuff to HtTYD a lot.

DNR for the sections, I might want to update them later.

For Hosts: Rule #1, forever

For Hosts:

Rule #1, forever and always, NEVER SEPARATE THE GROUP. Unless the plot absolutely demands it, do not let people run off on their own tangents or isolate a character. Nothing drives a roleplay into the ground like it because things get confusing and boring veryveryvery fast.

Under the circumstances where you do need to divide your players, make it as short as possible and put as much information in as possible.

Examples:

Bad Separation- fetch quests, exploration, deliveries, imprisonment (if prolonged)

Good Separation- large info reveal/plot twists, character development, foreshadowing

 

Another ultimate role-play killer; relying on chance/independent character choices to advance the plot. This is okay for small dramatic details that would have come up inevitably, but generally people don’t easily stumble across every clue and secret. Always prompt your players towards something, give them instructions and narrative hints.

Examples:

Bad Reliance- Waiting for a character to say something to another specific character

Good Reliance- Frequent reference to something important or backing the group into a figurative or literal corner

 

Don’t let the players decide the plot. Have something planned, even if it’s rough and has gaps in it, do not ever allow people to throw in their own big baddies and weird occurrences. Or you end up with spontaneously talking dragons, a sentient ball of lightning, mysterious character deaths and attempted cross-overs that just don’t make any sense.

That being said, this is an improvised story we’re making here, so be ready to compromise to an extent. That final battle may arrive a bit sooner than you planned. A certain hidden character may be discovered earlier than intended- this is one of the harder parts of role-playing, one that I’m still trying to get the hang of myself, so don’t be too censored yourself if you look back and see an iron fist.

Bad Interference- X’s dragon suddenly has y power

Good Interference- X player figured out that y character is lying and investigates something

Response to Hypergoof: Running a roleplay like that relies on luck and having the large majority of the players havign some experience already. You will always get an outlier to a set of rules or guidelines, but those occurences are so rare that it's too big of a risk for most hosts. Changes can occur in planning with response to player actions, but a roleplay without an end-goal is infinite until abandoned.

 

Addition 1:

Don't be afraid to tell players that they can't do something, or that they have to change something. Usually best done through PM's, if there's something in one of their action posts or a form that you disagree with, tell them about it and why, and most of all how they could fix it. Things like an overpowered character, a lengthy post that blocks others from input and reaction, or conflicting details and information in the story.

 

Addition 2:

Draw a map of the playable area. Honestly, the more information you can draw instead of write will cut the planning time in half easily. This also clears the air for your players on what's around them, where they can go, and also helps them figure out something of interest to head towards. Personally I make the map no bigger than an island or two small/very close together ones, and I leave it relatively blank. As people questions of what to put on the map, locations specific to the characters such as housing, workplaces, or personal retreats.

Map-making requires next to no artistic skill, and can be done in MS Paint with a mouse and your shakey, shakey hands like a baby deer. Don't worry too much about colour or the scale of things, just be sure that the geography makes sense or can be justified. If you really don't wannaor need something with detail fast, Azgaar's Fantasy Map Generator is a very good site and extremely versitile.

 

Addition 3:

For planning large and structured roleplays, OneNote 2016 is a G O D S E N D. Usually I'll just lump everything into a Word Doc and scroll and edit as needed, but the bigger the RP the less efficient that method gets. As far as I know, Microsoft accounts come with OneNote (and I don't know anyone without access to microsoft stuff), so you'll probably already have it installed. Have tabs for the front page post, characters and motives, plot, location descriptions, keystone and progression posts, and just literally anything you want. Best part? OneNote saves automatically so you don't need to worry about it crashing and throwing 3 hours of work into the eternal void. If you close it and re-open it?? It's all right there baby, auto-launch from the last NoteBook you had open. It's like an MMO for knowledge.

Part 2/continuation with new account

 

Fill the gaps in your players story. This is something I barely ever see here, and it's an incredibly strong tool both for story telling and making your roleplay a bit more unpredictable. Someone has a sibling or parent that disappeared? Don't remember where they came from? Have a debt or score to settle with someone? Use these missing pieces to make the plot more interesting and personally motivating- people will probably be more interested in posting if there's something important to their character in the story.

For Players: Personal pet

For Players:

Personal pet peeve so apologies for putting this first on the player-advice list, but;

Please don’t recycle a single OC fifty times over. Sometimes a roleplay calls for certain traits needed in the context and having an all-innocence-super-lucky-dragon-lover character in a jail-break setting will not fly. No matter how hard you try.

Alter the idea you have as needed by the roleplay and things will run smoother. So what the original version of Rodriguez the fifth of the great clan battle-born has two billion dragons and a sword that can kill a god; he’s a simple fisherman now and he’d better start acting like one (alright maybe not quite that dramatic of a change but you get the point).

 

Keep in contact with the host. If you’re unsure about something, have a cool idea, or just need to make some changes, check with the host first.

 

Keep posts short and sweet. Roughly 50-200 words a piece should do it, depending on what’s happening, but don’t over-do it and have a ten-page monologue about apples. People don’t have the time or energy to read that.

For Beginners: Starting out

For Beginners:

Starting out on either end can be a bit of a daunting task, so here’s some tips to fast-track your RP skills:

In-RP Language and Tools;

Acronyms-

  • DNR: Do Not Reply. Used by hosts to keep a post editable, a terrible crime of the highest order to disregard it, also useful for incomplete forms
  • WIP: Work In Progress. Notifies people that it’s not the finished product and things will change later

Subject Line Use- good for establishing who is talking/who you’re writing as, especially when doing multiple characters or in large roleplays.

Double Brackets- ((When we write like this)) it means we’re talking out of character

 

Filling Out Forms;

It’s a very fine line between not enough info, and way too much. When a form asks for your characters appearance, do not have a separate paragraph for every item of clothing and facial feature, but rather highlight their key features (such as eye colour and face shape), and give a general description of their garb. Something as simple as fancy clothing or bronze/iron armour will do.

When it comes to backstory, fill in the important milestones and leave the rest in the air. Stuff like where they grew up, what skills they’ve learned, and a breakdown of the events that transpired to get them to where the roleplay asks.

Quite a few forms have an ‘Other’ category; do not fill this with dragon descriptions, more backstory, or weapon description. Most of that stuff can be done during play/in fiction. Rather, it’s usually for useless quirks that help to define your character, or outlier essentials that might not of occurred to the host.

Pretty much the form shouldn’t exceed a page of writing, or two ‘screens’ in the post maker. Images can be useful but a bit of a gamble because people might not be able to see them.

OC- Original Character. General term for referring to your creations

 

Writing Styles

First Person vs Third Person

When posting, pick a perspective to write from and stick to it. If you want posts to be closer to the character and raw for their personality, go first person; I, Me, We, Us, etc. personal pronouns. Recommended if you plan on doing thought lines (dialogue that is not spoken out loud, only known to the character) and keeping to the one character.

Third person is a bit easier for external readers and gives you access to more synonyms. He/She/They, Them, Him/Her/Theirs, etc. pronouns. Good for large groups of characters and giving short and simple responses, and percieved reactions (what the other characters see).

 

Response Types

To The Point responders write short and immediate posts, regarding what is happening right now in the roleplay and not repeating what has already been said. Pros: this helps the roleplay look smooth to other people. Cons: often leaves more to be desired when others respond to your prompts

Full House responders write lengthy paragraphs detailing what has happened between their last response and now, adding their characters own opinions and perspectives on events and redescribing things. Pros: your character is better known to others and their reactions can be either explicit or implied, giving a larger prompt. Cons: can appear to backtrack and stall the roleplay to others, or confuse others about the details of what has happened.

Minimalist responders are usually a sign of inexperienced or rushed players, writing incredibly short 1-3 sentence responses that don't lead anywhere or give much opinion on the matter. Pros: should only be intentionally used for updating others on your characters whereabouts when seperated from others or when you've been inactive for a while. Cons: bad improv, can blocks other players and does little to contribute.

Wiggles the whispering death ate my subject

I disagree greatly that you shouldn't let RPers decide the plot. If you have a specific story you're trying to see to the end you probably should limit it but open ended RPs pretty much require RPers to be allowed to make their own plotlines if you want them to work. You only have so many ideas no matter how creative you are so mixing them with those of other people will take things a lot farther and open up paths you would never have known of otherwise. I'd instead suggest a separate discussion thread of some sort whether by PM or and actual thread so players can offer ideas and those ideas can be disputed or oked before they actually end up in the RP. A RP I'm in that has lasted over a year works this way.
