I’m doing a cleanup of all the blogs who have been deleted or have over 6 months without being used without a hiatus notice. Beware of the taxes!
Done, my dear!
Come Join in the Crusade!!
One Tough Puppy is a new Les Mis RP group which is set at the time of the revolution, In the original universe, looking to the build upon and eventually the revolution! Looking for all characters! (But one…)
It’s me who runs this town?
It’s 1831 and revolution is bubbling under the surface of Paris. The lower classes dream of a better tomorrow, a tomorrow of equality and happiness, something different from what they have now. They don’t know who where to turn and who to trust!
Les Amis de l’ABC are awaiting any sign from General Lamarque, waiting for the right time to attack and rebuild France.
The rebellion happens is June 1832, this will represent our next year. In the summer of 2014 we will hold the rebellion and the story will unfold during that month. What happens next, wait and see!
The Butler Presents: Tips for Managing Multiple Characters
[Reposted without readmore]
It sometimes seems that some roleplayers are simply born with a gift. There is always that one girl who has four characters in one roleplay, is in five other rps as well as having a few 1x1 plots running and an indie page. Some of us can manage multiple characters easily, while for others it’s a constant struggle. Here I’ve assembled a few random tips for going about playing multiple characters that can hopefully help the person who is struggling and possibly the gifted as well.
- On a personal or rps blog, make yourself a characters page where you can see all the characters that you play at one time. Write a short biography for each and link it with the character’s blog. While setting the page up it can help your brain differentiate between each character and it can also run as a main page of sort for your roleplaying. These are all the characters you are responsible for in one central location to keep as a constant reminder as well as an organized headquarters.
- Make your characters quite different from one another, especially if they are in the same roleplay. I would refrain from using the same FC for different characters and try your best to give all of them their own personality and history. This will help your mind better differentiate between different events that occur to your individual characters. You don’t want to bring up a conversation with one character that you actually had with a different one. Making each character incredibly different can help you avoid this embarrassing blunder.
- For 1x1s and indie pages, create one central blog (an rps blog of sorts) and have your 1x1s and indie blogs on sideblogs. This way everything is in one central location and you’ll have one account where you can follow all the blogs you need to. This can also help you multitask with characters, playing two at the same time without having to log in and out. Depending on how well you can differentiate your characters, I would also suggest using sideblogs for characters in the same rpg, if your rp allows that.
- Set up a schedule for yourself and make it as detailed as you need. Some players find it useful to set up an exact time and/or amount of time they will spend playing each character. Such as, they choose to be on one character for an hour at 7pm, then move on to another at 8pm for an hour as well.
- Choose that you will only play some characters on certain days. Decide that on Sundays, you will be on two certain characters, and on Monday you will be on two others. Pay attention to activity guidelines on roleplay games, but this can help with managing as well.
Hopefully these tips will help if you choose to manage multiple characters. However, pay attention to your schedule and don’t take on more than you can handle. There is nothing wrong with having only one or two characters at a time. There is nothing wrong with choosing not to rp at all at a certain time. Your personal life always comes before roleplay. Do not compromise anything like your health, family, friends, school, career, etc. for roleplaying. Don’t make your schedule around roleplaying, roleplay around your schedule.
Oh, sure thing! I’ll tag things as “jehan rp” from now on. There’s no problem, but the next time it is better if you don’t do it anonymously if you ever do it again, since some people don’t like that. Sorry for the inconvenience!
iPhone Contacts by Lucyrps
- Basic HTML knowledge needed
- To add more contacts, you’ll need to add both an extra name section (just copy & paste one of the ones already there) and add an extra icon.
- Adjust the margin-top on the #icons tag to move them up if they shift down.
- When changing the link on a name, be sure to change the “rel=” part to the corresponding # tag. For example, rel=”hanna” would correspond to the #hanna tag. Just copy and past one of those tags and give it appropriate name if you need to add more.
- Image width for the descriptions is 175px, but you can make it wider if you wish.
- The iPhone home button is the credit
- Don’t remove credit
- Don’t edit and/or redistribute as your own
