Roleplay Guide

This article should help all of you who are new to e-fed wrestling, or would like to improve your roleplaying. Victories are won by roleplaying, so follow these tips closely!

If your character is Russian or German, you should know some Russian or German to make him more realistic.

If you create a bad character that you'll run out of ideas for, you'll get bored with the fed quickly, and end up quitting. Good character creation is the key to having fun in any e-fed.

ROLEPLAYING TIPS

Okay... Here are some tips on how to be a successful roleplayer. These are general, if you have any more specific questions, mail me with them and I'll try to answer them for you.

1. SPELLING AND PUNCTUATION. Make sure you spell all of the words you use right. Go back and double check if needed, but just try to catch the spelling errors and typos as you write. Make sure you leave spaces between words. In this day and age spell check is widely available, so the only excuse for a lot of spelling errors is laziness!

Bad Examples. (1) "youre dead!ill bete you in the ring!big dammy!" (2) "Your dead, I'll beat you in the ring on monday" In (1), the main problem was it was written by someone who is obviously illiterate. No capital letters, no spaces, it was pathetic. That person would NEVER win a match, unless they were against someone that died and was unable to roleplay. In (2), it was good except for two things. They spelled "Your" wrong, it should've been "You're" in that use of it. And at the end, there was no period. It's still possible to win like that... But you better have some good stuff in there if you spell your words wrong frequently.

2. DON'T MAKE YOUR WRESTLER SOUND LIKE A KID. If your wrestler sounds like a 13 year old, he'll have as much of a chance of winning as a 13 year old. Watch the WWF or WCW sometime, the wrestlers don't swear and if they do, it's edited out. Also, how many 25 year old wrestlers say "pussy" or "dick?" Not too many.

Bad Examples. "Hey shitface pussy breath!" That just sounded stupid. It, quite frankly, sucked. Grown ups don't talk like that, so your wrestlers shouldn't either. If it was up to me, I'd probably kick someone like that out of the fed for being a moron.

3. WRITE IN PARAGRAPHS. Don't jumble everything together in one big 5K paragraph. It's a little bit harder to read and doesn't look very good. Write in mulitple paragraphs, it will definately help you out. Bad Examples. (1) Bad Roleplayer Man: Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Everything was jumbled together and it was all crammed. It's easier to read if you write in paragraphs and it looks much better.

4. DON'T PUSH THE LENGTH. Don't feel like you need to write an 11K roleplay every time. It will get boring for you and the reader and it will be obvious that you were just trying to get it to be really long. Just make your roleplays interesting and make sure they have quality, that's more important. But don't write 1K flashes either, because those are about 3 sentences and you can't get anything good done in three sentences. The average flash is about 3-5K with good quality. Don't make 11K or 1K flashes that are boring or pointless, it's just a waste of time. If you write the flash and it ends up to be 11K in the end, then it's okay because you weren't just trying to make it really long. This has become a major problem in a lot of feds where the owners are only looking for people who can write long roleplays and care nothing for quality. Pathetic.

5. BE DESCRIPTIVE. Describe what your wrestler is wearing, how he is acting, what he is doing. Be very descriptive so the reader can picture it in their head.

Good Examples. (1) ["Idolizer" Trace Michaels sits back on a black chair, reclining. He's wearing all green and red today. Some of the clothes he's featuring are a green t-shirt that says "Moo Krew" on it, green sweat pants with a red bandanna tied loosely around the left knee, and a red bandanna on his head, covering his long blonde hair. He looks towards the camera, stares at it for a second, then begins speaking.]

I told what he was wearing, where he was, and what he was looking at. So the reader knows that he's sitting in a chair and can picture it in their head. You don't have to be THAT descriptive, but at least give the reader an idea of what's going on.

6. DON'T BEG TO WIN. This has nothing to do with roleplaing, but... Don't e-mail the President of the fed begging to win a match because it would really help you out and you need a win. It just gets the President mad at you, and they will, most likely, job you in that match just because you asked to win. Instead of spending your time begging, write a good roleplay, you'll be more likely to win that way. Bad Examples.

(1) Please let me win, it could really help my wrestler out and give him the push I need.

That's just obvious that you're begging and it means the same as "Please let me win! I don't want to lose!" It's just pointless and will get you absolutely nowhere.

8. DON'T USE ENDLESS PERIODS Don't use a ton of..........ing just to make your RP longer. Bad Examples. (1) I......................am................. ..........coming............................. .................for......................... you.

Five words that took up two lines and looked really stupid. I always use 3 periods when indicating a pause. That's how Hollywood script writers do it... and so do I.

Those are just a few general tips and I hope it helps you out, if you need to know more, e-mail me and ask what you want to know. I'll help you out the best I can.
