Looking for a nice rp server...like Landroval in Lotro

My advice, as always (I really should make a macro), is -
  • Roll some alts on each server for the faction you're interested in, during the time slot you will be playing most. Some servers are more active Republic side, some more so Empire side. You probably won't see much action in the starter zones, since most people are trying to get OFF those planets...

  • Check out the "unofficial" websites for each server. Not all of 'em are very fancy yet. Read some of the posts, see what personalities you like best!
    See: Unofficial Server Forums
    Some communities are more chatty than others, some are full of SW lorehounds, some are silly, some are heavy on discussing game mechanics - et cetera.

  • Join the "OOC" channel there (it's kind of the defacto standard). Say something! Timing can be important here - the same channel that is DEAD when you log on can be completely spammy 15 minutes later. So try to start off with something salacious, such as describing how well you're polishing your lightsaber.

  • If you hear or read about a scheduled RP event, try hitting it up (this will usually require you to get to level 10, though, so you can travel).

  • Remember that when you DO visit a server, it's like sticking your hand blindly into a tiger's cage. You never know what you will grab onto. Most servers are VERY dynamic!

Try out Sanctum of the Exalted.

We're RP. We're generally older (a lot of folks seem to be 30+).

The best thing you can do is probably be Republic. It's not foolproof, but there seem to be (in my completely anecdotal experience) more dunderheads on the Empire side with horrible immersion-breaking names.

Also, find a guild that makes you happy, that has RP that interests you, and turn general chat off. Or at least quarantine it in a seperate tab.

Pfft. That is, if you can STOMACH being a "good guy" all the time.

My favorite quest Republic side is the one where you get to bet on who makes it through the mine fields.

Dunno, I've run into a lot of 'Jedi' going out of their way to kill anything that moves, with some pretty non-canon names. And that's on an RP server. At least Darkside, if they're acting like twits, it's more IC.

The rest of this advice, however, is quite good.

Eh, there are gonna be twists everywhere you go.

To be happy on a public MMO, one learns to develop blinders and a sense of humor.

And turning off player names also helps. ;-)

I saw a thread awhile back that someone created which had a lot of LoTro/Landoval users posting in it and mentioning their server...

Just searched for it (yay the search function is back!), here it is
http://www.swtor.com/community/showt...ighlight=lotro

I know some of the people who registered on our unofficial community site for Vrook Lamar have mentioned that they have also RP'd in LoTro - but I do not believe they mentioned their server name. We also have a thread up called "MMO Resume" where people are discussing past MMOs they've played and quite a few have listed LoTro on there (though some mention playing it off and on or for a short time) Maybe check it out and you will see some familiar names?

I wish you the best of luck! Feel free to check out our server community above or hop on our server and join "RP" (cjoinRP ) Not constantly active - it comes in bursts but if you ask ((oocly)) how the community/RP is you are likely to get a lot of honest responses.

I'm also on vacation from LotRO, Landroval server. I've tried several of the RP servers (Lord Adraas, Sanctum, Kath Hound, Bergeren Colony), both sides, and have yet to really find a home... Right now I'm on Vrook Lamar, trying to decide whether to subscribe to the game, or just go back to LotRO.
Not all those who wander are lost, but some are.

We should all get together on one server and start up a group. I'm looking to start a Trooper or Agent somewhere. I just need to decide on a server.

I rolled landroval when I first started playing lotro. I had no idea it was the "unofficial" RP server at the time. I just thought there were a lot of weirdos playing lotro.
