    The Basics of Roleplaying

    Hello My Hatchlings Dragon here with the first article of the group. After much deliberation I figured that I should start from the beginning and examine what exactly is roleplay, and the basics of every roleplay from beginning to end. While most of these...

    Discussion: Journalling

    Do you keep a journal for your character? If you do, what do/don't you write in it? Does it enhance immersion for you? On the other hand, do you ever find that taking the time to write entries breaks immersion or gets in the way of enjoying the game?

    Discussion: Facial Construction
