    I...

    am thinking of joining. But there are two problems:

    1. I've never RP'ed before....I have no clue what to do, besides what I've been able to figure out.
    2. I've only read the books once, and judging from what you're talking about, y'all have read them more than that...because I have no clue what the heck you're talking about :p I apparently retain even less than I thought.

    So, my friends....advise me. I have the beginnings of a character. I'm not sure if she'll be Aes Sedai (yes, I do at least know what those are :p) because when I was writing the character in Biology(hehe), I was thinking of this certain ability...like a wild talent sans the Power.

    So, tell me your thoughts :D Do you still want me?? *sniffle* ;)

    Sorcha, I've not even finished the series yet and I'm eager.

    Plus one thing in an RPG on TFF is the OOC thread, where we can converse and advise and ask for advice. I was a first time RPer for RPG1. Its just writing stories and if you are a good writer or ahve good ideas, youre a good RPer, regardless of experience.

    If you want in, You have my backing.

    Of course! Everyone has to start sometime. Don't worry about making mistakes, I made some pretty odd ones in my first RP. I something is out of sync with the books, someone will tell you and more than likely Nien will fix it.

    Besides that, you don't want to leve us as the only female characters, I mean really! And actually, I was kind of hoping for a non-Aes Sedai female. Not everyone can wield the One Power, you know. . .

    Nien, I like it. But are we assuming Kori and Kelaine are friends, or is she just going to knock on some random door somewhere?

    Crusader, good thing you have a nice, thoughtful Yellow around!

    Ok, awesome :) This really does sound like fun :D My character is going to be rather weak physically...so I guess she won't play too major a part...but it'll help me learn :p

    Yeah, come play Sorcha, it'll be fun. Ive never done it before either so we can learn together. Btw, you can pick my guy up a little later into the story, just so i can watch and see how to do things, you'll prolly find me in a bar drowning my sorrows, or picking a fight with the City Watch.

    Thanx, EMT. :)

    Sorcha, of course we want you. We're more than willing to take on new RPGers. It's easy to learn how. Basically read the other posts and decide how your character will react. Post 3-4 lines about your thoughts and actions. It's that simple. As time goes by you'll find you have alot more to add to the story. And will occasionally feel like writing a small novel when it's your turn.

    Dol, I think our characters are friendly acquaintences but not friends per se. So, I guess you'll be the first person I find in the Yellow quarters.

    Why do I have a feeling we will find most non Aed Sedai characters in a bar. :p

    Umm, I'm almost in the same boat Sorcha's in (but mine is sinking :( ). I've never done a RPG before, I have the imagination of a rock, and I often sound like I'm 2 when I write, and I've forgotten a lot of the details of the books. But other than that, I'd love to play! I just worry about being the weak link and messing up the story. :eek: I would need lots of help.

    Ah, pobody's nerfect. Least of all us. I've never RPed before either but we've got our resident experts with editing facilities, they can change anything that's too bad. Actually, most of the fun is dealing with situations the previous poster's left you with, I've done this sort of thing in my classes and dealing with the problem and leaving another for the next person is an addictive challenge. I must get on with posting my character...

    Don't worry hon. I do in fact have the imagination of a rock also...and my creative writing isn't so good. We'll have help I believe :)

    Hey guys dont sweat at all, an RPG full of first timeres will be fun, it will be exciting to see writing style progress as we go along (it always does, you constantly pick up things from other people and develop your own skills almost subconciously, people always improve). If youre confused just look at the non first tiemrs and for advice or go into another RPG and read up a little to familiarise yourself with how its done. I'm sure within a few pages you'll be rivally RJ himself.


    Not me, these filthy wetlanders do not know of Ousaqui.

    Anything short of rules violating we won't change. It's good to learn from what you wrote in the past. I'm happy there's no more Fanspot so you guys can't see my crappy first RPGing attempts.

    If you're not experienced a good suggestion is to read a few pages of one of the existing RPG's. (personally I'll recommend RPG #1 ;) ) And will will have an OCC thread for the RPG where you can ask all the questions you'd like and get all the help necessary. Once you post a few times it'll get much easier.

    So, I'm starting up the RPG now. Everybody finish your character profiles, buckle up your seatbeltsand hold on tight; cause we're ready to go.

    Does this mean we'll be finding ya inebriated and face down in a puddle?

    Face down in a puddle perhaps, like i sad before you may find me drowning in one.

    Inebriated no, my charater is far to depressed to drink, he has toh to himself that he must live with his troubles and not lessen them with drink.

    Being Aiel is fun!

    I do have to get into character.

    I may make this aiel a little different because of his past, he will probably be very depressed and therefore do things wetlander would think crazy.
