SIMWIDE ROLEPLAY NEWS


After the attacks at the Cherry Blossom Festival, leaders from the races gathered in a secret meeting to discuss how to clean up the veil breaks from the event and create a system to punish those who put all races at risk of being revealed.


The first Unnatural to stand trial will be Damon Voorhees, an Incarnate who initiated the attacks. The Veiled Council will decide his fate.


After the trial, hushed rumors about the council will spread through the races that there is now a governing body to step in when an individual or faction threaten the veil on a wide scale manner. This will come after individual races are asked to deal with the issue through their council, factions, and orders. The Veiled Council is the last line of defense before more sinister governing bodies try to take control of Ashmore and all it's races.

RP TIP OF THE WEEK:


How to Not Be Ignored When Entering a Scene


It can be frustrating, when you try to enter or start a scene and get no responses to your posts. Sometimes, it is easy to jump to the conclusion that the other players in the scene just don't want to play with you. But did you make sure your post was open ended?


Open ended means is there a prompt for a response.


For example: If Leah entered a scene with Rosemary and wanted to initiate roleplay there are two ways the scene could go.


Exp 1. >Leah entered Lazarus and smiled at Dean the bartender and the lady on the other end of the bar and hoped she would be the one to see about a job.


Unless she's a mind reader, there is no prompt that would let Rosemary know what Leah is trying to start a conversation with her. At best, Rosemary may respond with a smile.


Exp 2. >Leah entered Lazarus and smiled at Dean the bartender. She notices a mysterious dark haired woman smoking a clover cigarette at the end of the bar. She cleared her throat and directed a question to the woman, "Excuse me, do you know who I speak to about applying for a job?"

Now there is a direct question for Rosemary to respond to with clues that it is her character being addressed.


Another point to focus on is your circle of awareness when entering a scene. Sim owner Kali Karas mentioned in a blog post:


"Pay attention to the RP around you and be a part of it or step away. Read other people’s posts and react to them. I’ve been in scenes in which someone emotes shooting someone and someone else prattles on, talking to the person that just got shot “oh nice to meet you, whats your name?” while the person shot emotes bleeding profusely and slumping to the ground. The second person never read the rp around them. It’s disconcerting, confusing and disruptive to those involved in the scene, and more than likely your RP will be ignored for the more prominent scene."


It also never hurts to IM the players and ask how you can join the scene.


If you find you still struggle, don't hesitate to reach out to a Community Lead for advice.



Enjoy your week Unnatural
