How About We Start Making This an RP server?

Hey Folks, how about we start really using /s to get some RP going, especially on the Fleets? I know, I know, three are some children among us who will mock and play around but that is what ignore is for! To be frank, my biggest disappointment in the game has been the lack of any RP unless it is a guild scheduled event.

Not to start a sandbox vs themepark debate but sandboxes have more freedom more tools for RP compared to themepark RP where your limited to being a republic trooper and you can't be a imperial trooper. Where your limited to being an Imperial agent and you can't be a republic agent(SIS). That is why RP in this game has been a disappointment, the best thing we can do to make this game alive in terms of RP is ask bioware for more tools to play with and more freedom for the best RP experience as possible.

Actually...there is random RP everywhere. You DO join the /RP channel on either faction? All you have to do is ask or initiate it yourself. Someone would join you. People are too shy to start RP in other places that are not NS cantinas. There is RP there nearly EVERYDAY that isnt an event.

Alpha Company had an unscheduled RP patrol on Ord Mantell when we were bored and had plenty of members on, We just winged it with ambushes and IED's and search/rescue. We invited random lowbies who were interested and even got a promising new recruit.

Message of the story, RP still happens without prior planning

Also I notice if I "walk" that is usually a universal sign of RP intent, who knows who will join you? This is also very handy in initiating negotiations after long world pvp battles.

RP is everywhere my friend! In the trees! in the sky! in the ground! in the...*cough*...Nar Shaddaa cantina...Well, really the cantina isn't all that bad, due to me, THE HANDSOME SIBEK KORIN, being too lazy to move my character off the planet. Seriously, just attempt to Start it with people who don't have names similar to "XxXTheownerXxX" or "MasterJediDarth", it's likely they'll be happy too, if they aren't questing that is......I also strongly urge you to find me, THE HANDSOME SIBEK KORIN, cause' i'm always bored.

To RP on this server you must look it or begin it for yourself. Just try to RP with the first player with an RP-friendly name, you're not going to get sick or die just for trying. And most of the time you'll actually get into an RP scene

Where I do agree with you is that our server does not spontaneously RP. Some hardcore roleplayers like me stopped trying due the lack of interest of a great part of the community. I remember the days where some guilds did a IC interview with a possible new member, or when we got to someones ship to talk, etc... We need those days back.

If you want to RP I have a pair of characters with their own stories on either side. Just don't be afraid to ask someone to RP

*whispers* But they're in-guild only, scheduled events.

I know many of our members are RPers, but same deal: They're pretty shy about starting stuff themselves. I've seen it all overthe server.. if you start things randomoly on whatever planet, people will usually join in! Especially if you say you're doing so on the rp channel or in gen chat.

If you want to build RP, you have to foster the community. Spontaneous RP is cool, but also give some thought to supporting events. Many guilds have weekly cantina events, and they're more than happy if people come along. If someone posts an ad about an RP event, consider swinging by. Even if it isn't really your thing, you can still make an appearance. And who knows, it might end up being your thing.

Don't think you'll like an RP swoop race? Fair enough, don't race. Show up and talk or wager. Condemn people for unsafe driving. Show up pursuing your own storyline and see if anyone jumps in.

It can definitely be hard to find RP. But at the same time, when people go out of their way to present RP opportunities, the community needs to either rise to the occasion, or accept the blame for the lack of RP.

Yeah I believe there's a lot of roleplaying around, while I was leveling up my character there was a lot of people roleplaying in a cantina and in a casino at Nar Shaddaa.
