I just want to know who of you are an RPer as me :D ((In the DC))
And if you are, why and how did you start RP?

I think I'll leave the Argonians and be a Breton for once (I'm really thinking about it) so I'll join this this topic -

I'm RP'er because I play "pen and paper rpg" and since the early days of rpg games the systems designers dreamed (and I think every single rpg player did the same) with a world where you could play with your friends with no need of a dungeon master and descriptions since all visual details are there.

I play Neverwinter Nights 2 in a server with lot of custom tools to enhance the role play, I guess it is the closest thing to real role play on a virtual world.

Since I enjoy exploration and craft Rp is just an obvious next step. I hope the questions on character creation will phase me with other rp'ers.

I avoid the TESOF rp topics because my english isn't good enough yet - I'm working on it tho xD

Since I've played so many times I'm trying to avoid lore-nerd-based characters such scholars, bards or mages. I'm going with something more humble on ESO (I don't want to stuck hours with someone discussing some detail about ancient lore - I think rp is way far from this).

How can someone not like a wizard? And who doesnt like to discuss ancient lore for hours? I do anyway XD

Come on, join in! Your english sounds fine to me! Plus, you don't have to be good, all you have to do is string together sentences that make sense!

I'll try then. What I said about mages and scholars: People think that rp is "read everything about the lore" but role play is about your character.. You your character is a humble soldier how can he know something about the first era, for example? I like to role play many types of characters, I just avoid to stick with the ones who "know everything about everything" - it bores me.

I played Final Fantasy and Resident Evil a lot as a child. They had excellent roleplaying mechanics, so when I walked away I guess I wanted more.

Played some Pen&Paper like @nightniix up there, and they were loads of fun. And rather than getting a crowd together, playing for tons of hours, buying food and drink and hosting any D20 games took a lot of energy, so jumping on forums was a great alternative.

I'm a RPer, playing KOTOR and other RPGs. Fell in love with RP over time.

Started out with single player rpgs and fell in love. then wanting to do some writing at the same time I started rping on the swtor forums before it launched. after it did I stumbled around trying to find a good place. Then found this place followed by my guild and got back to it.

I been Role-playing for along time. Started actual in-game RP during my WoW days. Off game I been doing a lot of pen and paper, and the usual chatroom, since back in AOL's prime days.

What am I waiting for? I have a group of friends (and guildmates http://www.phoenix-vanguard.com/ ) that are planning to RP the awesomeness that is the TES universe. Right now were just sitting back in another games together, until beta opens to all of us, or launch. Many of us have made character sheets, and used Skyrim to base what our character could look like on the Enjin TESO RP fourms.

Not sure if I will actually be DC, but I am planning to play an Orc and Redguard, so I figure I say ello!

I don't know how long I have been RPing for exactly. Currently, I RP in TESO and EVE: Online (Aetran Molou).

The character/bloodline/family that I'm using for TESO is based off of my main character sense Oblivion. Hes a Breton named Lothaire Bonvollain, born in Farrun Highrock. I'm not exactly sure of what his story will be in TESO, but in Skyrim the idea was that he was caught summoning flame creatures from Oblivion at his mages school, and was kicked out for being "unsafe" and sent to the College of Winterhold as a substitute school, but he was taken prisoner by a group of stormcloaks, later caught in an Imperial ambush, thus entering the plot of Skyrim.

I started actually writing a little story off of it, and if any of you would want to read it, I would be happy. Winking_grinning

Then you should post your story in the library section of the the RP part of the forum, I know that there are many who love to read story's like that. I find it brings a new sense of imagination and creativity or at least a new perspective in a world with lore and freedom as rich as TES's. it's also a great way to gain constructive criticism (which is a good thing, it'll help you strive to be better without getting you down) and praise on your work. I always like to think of little story's in my head whenever I play any RPG, and if I think the story's good enough it ends up here for everyone to see.
