Re: Roleplay RP??

Post  EaT TrAsH on Sun Nov 28, 2010 11:05 am

This is the best rp i have ever seen. i will not expect this quality. Made by the amazing Esgaroth. (taken from GWA and will not be used in a show)



The Titan Tron shows a scene in Esgaroth's locker room with him sitting on one of several wooden chairs.

Suddenly the door opens and Eddy comes in.

Eddy: Esgaroth!

Esgaroth: Yeah?

Eddy: I want your game! I didnt get one!

Esgaroth: Wow, easy, man! Did you talk to the Boss?

Eddy: Yes, and he said it's ok with him if it's ok with you. But If your not ok with it we can sort things out the GWA way.

Esgaroth: Well, you see, tonight is not a very good time for me, how about...

At this moment the door bursts open again and Jeff_Hardy1222 comes running in.

Jeff: Hey Esgaroth, Mr. Robinson told me I'd have to ask you for game?!?!...

Esgaroth: What? You, too? I have one!!!

Eddy: Hey, I was here first!

Jeff: Come on, Eddy, get out of the way. Let the better gamers talk!

Eddy: Are you calling me a bad gamer?

Esgaroth: Hey, guys, why...

Jeff: Just telling the truth.

Eddy gets ready to hit Jeff_Hardy1222, but at this moment EaTrAsH comes running into the room, quickly closing the door behind him.

Esgaroth: Damn it, this is not a public meeting room!

EaTrAsH: Sorry, man, but I wanted you to ask...

Esgaroth: You want your game too?

EaTrAsH: Um Robinson said it was ok.

He realizes Eddy and Jeff.

EaTrAsH: What are you two doing here?

Jeff: Hey, we were first to ask for our game!

Eddy: Actually I was first.

Jeff: You want to mess with me? Well, why don't we have a triple threat match to see who will get the game of Esgaroth’s?

EaTrAsH: I have a better idea. Why don't we beat each other up now?

Eddy: *thinking he meant the game* Good idea!

At this moment Jeff_Hardy1222 punches Eddy in the face, letting him stumble backwards.

Meanwhile EaTrAsH grabs one of the wooden stairs and smashes it over Jeff_Hardy1222's head.

Eddy jumps over the unconscious Jeff_Hardy1222 to hit EaTrAsH

only to get hit by Esgaroth with another wooden chair.

Esgaroth and EaTrAsH tower over the other two wrestlers who both are unconscious now.

Esgaroth: Nice swing, dude!

EaTrAsH: Well, they had it coming.

Esgaroth: Do you really want your game from me?

EaTrAsH: Nah just wanted to confuse them. I came here to ask for your help in another matter.

From afar cameras can hear Spart shouting.

Spart : EaTrAsH!!!

Esgaroth: Ah, I see.

He takes another wooden chair raises it over his head, hiding beside the door.

Spart rushes in.

Spart : Here you are! So where’s my game? I will beat you up right now!

EaTrAsH points to Esgaroth.

EaTrAsH: Chair!

Spart : What?

He turns around just in time to get the hit squarely in the face.

EaTrAsH: What a mess.

Esgaroth: Well, I didn't mean to hit his face...

EaTrAsH: I mean the whole room.

They both look at the three broken chairs and the three wrestlers laying around.

Esgaroth: I think I will keep my game . I'm curious how good you are though, your too serious these days.

EaTrAsH: It's your game man, do what you want.

Esgaroth: Yeah. Well, first I have to find a new locker room.

EaTrAsH: I have an idea!

He leaves the room and takes off the nameplate.

Then he switches it with the one next door which says: EDDY

EaTrAsH: Eddy, you don't mind, do you?

The blacked out man doesn't respond.

EaTrAsH: Didn't think so.

Esgaroth: Why was Spart after you, anyway?

EaTrAsH: I told him i had all the games

Esgaroth : So why did you tell Spart that?

EaTrAsH : Cause Robinson gave them to me to give them to you.

Esgaroth : Where did they go?

EaTrAsH : THE FANS... where else dude.

He and Esgaroth leave the room all the while laughing while the camera goes back to the arena

Re: Roleplay RP??

Post  Esgaroth on Mon Nov 29, 2010 6:55 am

thanks, trash, that you took mine as an example. although it first was about my title and YOU edited it to fit another show at GWA, so some of the credit goes to you, too.

Here's something i wrote in R&RW as a Roleplaying guide:

Role-playing Basics

Role-playing means to develop a character and then to write texts and stories regarding that very character. It means to read what other people wrote about their characters and then react to it in written form. The first and maybe the primary step to do this is the creation of your own character.

Character Creation

The first thing to decide is whether your character is a good guy or a bad guy or something in between. Deciding this is very important for your character’s role, so give it some thought. Of course your character’s behavior can change over time, but not from good to bad and back to good in the time of three shows.

Next you should put some thought into your character’s looks, for example hair color, hair style, how tall is he (or she), is he rather fat or skinny, does he have any tattoos, does he wear short or long trousers etc. The more detailed information you give, the better everyone reading your texts can imagine the scene, and of course it makes your character unique. Another thing to consider is his personality: Is he the serious type of guy or rather playful, is he calm, discreet or does he get angry very easily?

Something very important (mostly for you) is his biography. Think about what your character experienced in his life, and why he got into wrestling, and even more important: Act like that in your role-plays! For example a kind-hearted character can suddenly loose it when something triggered a memory to one of his traumas. And a character that grew up in one of the worst surroundings on earth will never turn his back to someone he doesn’t know or trust.

Try to make your character unique and interesting. And don’t copy any real wrestler, because nothing is more boring than a roster full of guys who want to be Jeff Hardy (or any other superstar). And believe me, it’s much more fun playing a self-made character than something that isn’t you. Remember, there is no “wrong” or “right” in creating a character, only “interesting” and “I-already-saw-that-a-hundred-times”.

Writing a role-play

After giving life to your character, it’s time to make him live it. There are a lot of possibilities in a role-play and I can’t talk about all of them, but there are some things one should always consider while writing. A role-play always means that your character wants to give someone a message. That message can be to anyone else in the federation: another wrestler, the GM, the audience, the staff, a group of wrestlers, some journalist or all of them. The most important thing is what your wrestler has to say. A simple role-play shows your character in front of the camera, saying what he has to say, and basically this is the core of every role-play. As an example, I will post a role-play of my wrestler Esgaroth and then develop it further as this “lesson” continues.

Esgaroth: Hello, I am Esgaroth. I am a former rock star, but my band split up and now I’m here at Rock & Roll Wrestling.

This already contains all the information I want to give, but of course it doesn’t really look like much. Nevertheless, this is the core of the role-play, and everything that follows after this step can be changed to your liking. To make a role-play more interesting, describing the surroundings always is a good idea. Often used surroundings are the ring in the arena, the backstage area, some locker room or the GM’s office. Of course that also depends on who your wrestler is talking to. For example, talking to a journalist on some submarine hundreds of miles away from the next coast would be a bit weird ( but not impossible if you can give a proper reason why the wrestler AND the journalist are on a submarine hundreds of miles away from the next coast).

A dialogue is often the easiest way for a role-play, because it’s very easy to let the participants react to whatever is said. A monologue is much more difficult to write in an interesting way. But always remember: Only write what people can see in the ring or through the camera. That means you can describe the looks on the faces, but you can’t write the thoughts of the characters.

For my example, I wanted my character to give a speech to the audience in the ring. I still keep it simple so everybody can identify the points I talked about.

Esgaroth makes his way to the ring and grabs a mic. Esgaroth: Esgaroth: Hello, I am Esgaroth! The crowd cheers. Esgaroth: I am a former rock star, but my band split up and now I’m here at Rock & Roll Wrestling. I hope we all will have a wonderful time here! The crowd cheers again and Esgaroth makes his way out of the ring.

Of course this still looks horrible, but is much more interesting than the first example. While describing the scene, the more detailed information you give, the better every reader can imagine the scene the way you imagined it.

Another point to consider is the ending of lines. For me, it’s one of the greatest tools in role-playing (no joking!). Using several lines helps the readability but also has a real cool side effect: In TWG, the shows are shown line after line, just like in the matches (if you don’t press “go to the match result”). This means, you can make dramatic pauses in your character’s speech, which in my opinion is a really cool thing. So instead of writing

I have an important message for you: I will go for the title!

It’s much more fun like this:

I have an important message for you:

I will go for the title!

This way every reader holds his breath what the important message might be until TWG shows him the next line. As you can see, I always used an empty line between my written lines. I recommend doing it like this, so the guys who edit your role-plays and put them in the shows know which line break was intended, and which one is only because the text didn’t fit in one line. In my next example, I used this method as well as the more detailed information, and I also added some more text to give the role-play more soul, so to speak. I considered the facts that my wrestler is a former rock star in his way of behavior, as well as him being a crowd magnet.

Music starts to play and a new wrestler makes his way to the ring.

The wrestler has long, blonde, curled hair and wears long trousers with flames on them, while one can see his naked muscular upper body.

He dances to the music and the audience seems to get in a good mood.

As he enters the ring, he grabs a mic and faces the audience.

Esgaroth: Heeellooooo, Rock and Roll Wrestling!

The crowd cheers in response.

Esgaroth: Some of you might already know me for my rock star career.

There are some more cheers, and one man holds up a sign with the cover picture of one of Esgaroth’s records.

Esgaroth: (chuckles) Wow, I was told that this federation has a great audience, but I never expected such a warm welcome!

The crowd shows their approval.

Esgaroth: Well, now that my band split up, I thought: Esgaroth, you rocked so many stages. Why not become a wrestler and rock the best and greatest audience in the world?

The whole arena erupts into cheers and begins to chant the wrestler’s name.

Esgaroth: So now that I’m here, I want even more. I saw pictures of the title belts hanging everywhere, and since I saw them, it was clear to me:

He makes a pause.

Esgaroth: I want to become champion!

The audience applauds again.

Esgaroth: So guys, are you ready to roooooooooooooooock!?

The crowd goes completely crazy as the music starts again and Esgaroth dances his way out of the arena.

This pretty much is it. As you can see, I described the surroundings and the appearance of the wrestler in the beginning. I also wrote about the reaction of the crowd to the wrestler and his speech, as well as his reactions to the crowd. Another thing I used was a catchphrase, which can be a trademark of my character. Things like catchphrases or nicknames also make a wrestler more unique, and in my opinion every character should have at least one of each.

The last thing to consider is coloring the text. Especially when using more than two people in a conversation, coloring the text will help the reader to better understand who is talking, and in many federations there is a rule somewhere how to use the colors (for example one color is only allowed to use for the GM or the commentators. In the next example I used the color rules of this federation and added some comments of the commentators to show what I mean.

Music starts to play and a new wrestler makes his way to the ring.

The wrestler has long, blonde, curled hair and wears long trousers with flames on them, while one can see his naked muscular upper body.

He dances to the music and the audience seems to get in a good mood.

Dr. Louve: All right, here comes one of the new guys, Esgaroth!

As he enters the ring, he grabs a mic and faces the audience.

Esgaroth: Heeellooooo, Rock and Roll Wrestling!

The crowd cheers in response.

Esgaroth: Some of you might already know me for my rock star career.

There are some more cheers, and one man holds up a sign with the cover picture of one of Esgaroth’s records.

Esgaroth: (chuckles) Wow, I was told that this federation has a great audience, but I never expected such a warm welcome!

The crowd shows their approval.

Mr. Robotoo: Apparently this man knows how to treat his fans.

Esgaroth: Well, now that my band split up, I thought: Esgaroth, you rocked so many stages. Why not become a wrestler and rock the best and greatest audience in the world?

The whole arena erupts into cheers and begins to chant the wrestler’s name.

Esgaroth: So now that I’m here, I want even more. I saw pictures of the title belts hanging everywhere, and since I saw them, it was clear to me:

He makes a pause.

Esgaroth: I want to become champion!

The audience applauds again.

Esgaroth: So guys, are you ready to roooooooooooooooock!?

The crowd goes completely crazy as the music starts again and Esgaroth dances his way out of the arena.

And that’s it, you now know how to create an interesting character and how to give him life. The only limits left are the ones of your imagination. Nevertheless, here’s some more advice what to look out for:

1. Check you grammar and spelling. I know that there are a lot of great roleplayers who have trouble with the English language, but look at this post and remember I’m German. If you can’t write proper English, don’t worry, there are enough people around to help you. But give it your best, it makes reading your story much easier (and it’s less work for the guys who edit the shows).

2. Don’t just start writing without a plan. You don’t have to draw yourself a map, but it helps if you know before starting WHAT you want to say and TO WHOM you want to say it. I speak from my own experience when I say that writing without a plan almost always ends in chaos.

3. Have fun! That’s an order! Wink

And finally some advice for different characters:

Face (crowd pleaser):
Being a face doesn’t mean you have to be good. Being a face only means you do what the crowd wants to see. As an example: The Rock was never a “good” person, but he was a face. He was loved by the crowd, despite being a complete asshole. As a face you can do anything, as long as the fans agree with it. This means you have to relate to the crowd, please them, and if some bad guy tries to bully them or another face, stop him. On the other hand, being a face doesn’t mean you’re invincible. Faces do loose matches, they do get beat up from time to time. So let him loose in some role-plays, but in a way the crowd doesn’t agree with it. A character which can do anything and nevertheless takes win after win is fun for the first three shows, but gets boring very soon.

Heels (bad guys):
Heels are pretty much the opposite of a face. They beat people up for no reason, they hate the crowd, etc. For a heel, there are only two rules: 1. Nobody likes heels, and 2. Heels do stuff no-one can approve of. This means you are allowed to do everything, you lie, break the laws, create chaos. But always remember, one day you will have to fall because people love to see the good guys win. But when that day has come, make sure you lose in the most spectacular way you can imagine, because this means an even more spectacular win for the face beating you.

Post  ZeroKnight on Tue Nov 30, 2010 4:25 pm

Is this any good for a first attempt :-)

HAd it in different colours in word :-)


A shot of the entrance to the arena comes up on the titan tron.
A young man comes down the walk way, he is a big guy almost 7 feet tall, with a bald head and a jet black beard, he looks tanned, his arms and legs looks like he is used to work out a lot! A cloaked person walks a few feet behind him!

A female TWG-TV reporter walks towards him

TWG-TV Reporter: Excuse me but are you going to be on tonight’s show?

Zeroknight looks a bit startled

Zeroknight: Ummm yeah but who are you and why do you want to know??

TWG-TV Reporter: Ohh excuse me I am Zandra and I am a reporter for TWG-TV. Since I haven’t seen you before I have to ask! What are you is your name?

Zeroknight: Ahh that’s ok then! (Zeroknight Smiles) They call me Zeroknight or The Silver One!

TWG-TV Reporter: Sad to say that I haven’t heard about you before! Where do you come from?

Zeroknight: HAHAHAHA I wouldn’t believe you if you said you had, I come from Denmark and I used to wrestle in DPW!

TWG-TV Reporter: Honestly never heard of DPW either! Why have you come to BAW?

Zeroknight: Well Denmark was becoming a bit too small for me and I needed a bigger challenge (Zeroknight Smiles again) I heard that BAW had the best fans (Crowd cheers loudly), and that they was looking for new Talent and I thought I might give it a shot!

TWG-TV Reporter: Who are you going to face on tonight’s show?
Zeroknight: Honestly I don’t know and I don’t care, they can put me up against anyone here and I will do my best to win and give the fans the best show possible! They deserve no less (Crowd goes wild)!

TWG-TV Reporter: What is your goal in BAW?

Zeroknight: I am here to win Titles and to gain the favor of these fantastic fans (crowd goes wild again)

The Druid walks up and speaks in a light female voice

Druid: Sorry to interrupt Zeroknight but we are really late!

Zeroknight: I have to get ready now (looks straight at the camera) I hear by post an open challenge to any wrestler in BAW if you dare face me or want to prove that you can with stand the power of my ZEROPOINT!!

Zeroknight walks away!

The show continues
