State of the Nations

Over the last few weeks I’ve been trying to get to know the active members of the role play community on Realms, exploring the half-elf nation and learning some of the history from forums that cover a great span of time.

I suppose I didn’t need to, I could have just jumped right in, but I thought that it might be a little more respectful of the community to take a little time to learn.  Some of the things I’ve learned include:

  • There are a lot of interested people, not all want to lead, everyone has their own level of involvement and free time
  • There’s no secrecy on hometown boards and I suppose there doesn’t need to be, but I will need to try to be careful to keep what I know and what Tharius knows separate
  • There are huge differences in how people RP on Realms … no way is best as long as it’s respectful of others
  • To paraphrase Ghandi: Be the change you want to see in the game.  If you want activity, generate it.  Nothing will draw others to you like activity and success.

So I won’t bore the people that are successful rp’ers… For those of you thinking of trying it out, start a lowbie and join in.  If you’re not a PK RP person then level doesn’t matter and you can save your main for when you really want to get your feet wet!  The two main Nations boards are NE;NE;N (current stuff) and NE;NE;N;N (histories) of Darkhaven Square.  Your own hometown will also have a board in it that will help get you up to speed.
