Hello once again, family! 'Tis Ragmar, your roleplaying enthusiast!

So I've been looking forward to ESO for two big reasons, that rival each other for primary and secondary reasons, and change places depending on the day. One being large scale siege warfare similar to DAoC, and the other being, and you've probably already guessed it, the massive roleplay potential!

I love to roleplay. I spent a few years on the Earthen Ring roleplaying server, and before that, I spent lots of time doing some tabletops, as well as various roles throughout some plays and musicals I've been in. I ran a successful roleplaying guild on the Earthen Ring server for about a year, until I couldn't afford to play WoW anymore and passed the reins to a friend, and, sadly, Honourbound no longer lives.

However! Gaiscioch has withstood the test of time, and I'd love to see us take part in the roleplaying community in ESO. If you look at Tamriel Foundry and teso-rp.com, there are so many people out there who are just as excited to give it a try as we are! What I'd like to do is I'd like to put together a list of people who are interested in roleplaying in ESO, that way when the time comes, we can get started building storylines, events, and other rp related things right from launch. If you have a character built you'd like to share with us, here is the place to post a little about them up! If you have an idea for a story, or an event, let us know and we can discuss it, and get it ready to go, or at least a little more polished.

I love playing GW2 with the family. But I really do miss roleplaying. And who knows - our fearless leader started Gaiscioch as a roleplaying guild, and was telling me a little bit about one of his DAoC characters earlier. Maybe we can get Fog involved. Putting aside any and all comments and semi-poking fun at our guild leader, I would love to see anyone and everyone who wants to roleplay get involved. The number one issue I heard on Earthen Ring when roleplayers quit was "I just don't feel comfortable. I feel like a noob and don't know what I'm doing." I would like to tell everyone that's fine! It takes practice and time to get used to it and to build a character you love. I would be happy to sit down and help you out. As soon as ESO launches, I plan on starting my RP 101 classes again. I'm certain that there are many people who'd like to help out too.

So, if you have the slightest inclination to try out roleplaying, let us know here! Let your ideas flow, ask your questions, and let's prepare to do something great together!

I've done role-playing games since D&D came out, but it flows with my writing side, too.  I was actually co-lead and then leader of an RP guild that I put into the Tuatha on Warhammer.  That's how I got in this crazy family.  ;)  I already know Briseadh will probably be a Nord in the game because of us doing the Ebonhart pact.  Briseadh has always been some sort of battle oriented fighter type.  After all, briseadh is simply the modern Irish word for battle.  I'm just so dang creative, ain't I?  HA!  Irish leads to cool names with simple words in these games though.

Anyway, I'd be game to help figure out how to make this work for those that want to roleplay.  Though I find it harder in MMO's for a lot of people rather be playing than hanging out chatting or they feel self conscious because non-RPers just don't get it and some do say things.

Don't mess with Mama Bear, I might hug you too tight. =D

I've already got my background and started my history story, just need to fill in a few gaps and read up better on the lore.  I'm going with an Ashlander who gets caught up in the magical explosion and gets exiled from her village to the 'big city' - this might be a shock for some, but she's 'mildly' insane now...  Very much looking forward to RP'ing her hehehe 

Was the head of the RP division for one of our guilds in Tera before the game lost it's appeal.  Had some really, really awesome RP in Tera...  My character was a diplomat bent on destroying the Federation and bringing the Elves back into military control, she actually ended up accomplishing it (per say) as the Federation fell apart, unfortunately the game fell out of favor hahaha  Ended up just doing forum RP on my Enjin site since then; oddly enough we're doing a Warhammer RP in our off time :P  Well that and a bit of RP before PvP on Saturday nights in GW2 (whilst ignoring all the RP haters there.) 

Anyway, I'd really love to help with ESO RP but I have to admit my RL tends to eat up a lot of my time these days.  Still I'm willing to do what I can to help :)

Awesome, thanks you two! I have some ideas floating in my head, but I'm keeping them hidden in my secret laboratory for now. 

Though I find it harder in MMO's for a lot of people rather be playing than hanging out chatting or they feel self conscious because non-RPers just don't get it and some do say things.

Bri, some of the most entertaining things I've ever done in RP have been more campaigns than storylines. I've participated in RP-PvP campaigns, as well as did things in WoW like RP-LFR (Pretty much easy mode raiding), and some IC Dungeons. They're awesome!

ESO provides an opportunity for me to possibly get back into RP, limiting factor being time. But I cannot get everything together for my toon until I solidify class... and that may not be post launch, but all in all, I definitely have some interest.

So I have a couple ideas for some roleplaying events:

Story night: This one I borrowed from a buddy in WoW. All characters have stories, feats they want to share, simple family legends they want to pass down, or even just ones they pull out of their head. We find our favorite tavern and share stories.

 

Fight night: Depending on whether there is real dueling or not, this is a fun one I did in my RP guild. We gathered a lot of people from the community, watched each other duel, left some wagers, and took turns participating.

 

RP Campaigns: This one doesn't necessarily have to be planned, it just has to have people willing to do it. As you venture forth in cyrodil, RP some. Have conversations and banter, give orders in-character, RP as you patrol your keep or make your rounds, and tell stories of the battles afterwards!

RP Dungeons/raids: Same principle as RP Campaigns.

Roleplaying 101: This is something I plan to do myself, to get people acquainted with the basics. If there is anyone interested in helping me out, let me know!

Ragmar,

I would like to partake as well.  My roots started way back in D&D in which I was a Dungeon Master.  I used to create elaborate modules and campaigns for my friends with deep story lines.  Heck, I still have them, along with my old manuals...now...if I could just find them.  I will take a look and see if I could incorporate some of the story lines into ESO once it's released.

Since I like to play mostly warriors, I'm already planning a back story for my main, a Nord.

The one thing that was central to my story lines is a tavern, a central gathering point.  Taverns were always a place where one could get a pint and share stories about their adventures.

The one thing I've missed from the current MMO's is a place to call your own.  Oh, how I loved the instanced apartments of EQII, which I could decorate and invite people in.  I know Skyrim has them, so.....possibly the folks at Zennmax could incorporate them in ESO in the future?  Possibly, player run taverns?

Anything is possible with ESO...we will just have to wait and see.

*Gets out dusty parchment of past adventures*

My past experience roleplaying consisted of D&D and some online forums, which improved my writing immensely. But, I've never really roleplayed in the mmos I've been in, despite always wanting and intending to, and I need to fix that. So, as of now, I intend to resurrect a character and persona I created long ago by the name of Cain Demonsbane, yes...big surprise there. I will have to be careful with him though, he was never a very family friendly character.

This will be my first attempt at RP... I'm creating a back story now, but still haven't picked a class. Hoping to not screw up to much, but at least I've been studying up on Nord lore. My in-game time will be limited due to RL, but I can't wait to play!

The awesome thing about ESO and being able to be part of the budding roleplaying community is the fact that it's brand new! Yes, others have established sites and other tools for roleplayers aroung the world interest in ESO, but until it begins in game, the roleplaying community won't quite form and take shape.

I'm excited for those of us interested in joining in on this new opportunity, and can't wait to see how it all goes. We have the opportunity to help shape the RP community of the entire game, not just one server. The entire world is in on one server, and I'm hoping we can help shape the community such that it will be a friendly, fun loving atmosphere, welcoming to all. I've seen too many RP servers not interested in new players, and they've been elitist and cliquish. I've seen too many friendships, guilds and entire server communities torn apart when they go blades in. So, I encourage all of us who know the Gaiscioch way, and who have seen that it WORKS, to help spread it. Don't forget, there are roleplayers out there who aren't just us here in the GSCH. There are many who will be playing the game who aren't in our family. But don't forget to treat them as such.

Tomorrow will be the final day of one of my homes away from home, the earthenring.net. The admin is too tired from all the people who don't follow the blades out not in rule, who aren't able to respect others, and who give him a lot of crap cause they claim he is a favoritist, an elitist, and a power hungry dude. I know this guy. It's not true. Just a note, that website is to Earthen Ring RPers, as this site is to us GSCH family members. The reason he kept it as long as he has was cause of his love for the community and it was abused. Let's not abuse our community. Let's help encourage a healthy, funloving community like each and every server that those of us who are warriors of the Gaiscioch have before us. Let's remember our credoes we have accepted as we rank up, or those we will accept as we grow. Let's remember the wonderful times we've had with this family, and spread it to others.

I'm so excited for this opportunity, and invite you all to join me in making it wonderful, not just for us, not just for our friends and family, not just for even 1 server... But for the entire community across the world.

Alright, for those of us who haven't already done it, I would like to encourage everyone to join the roleplaying group on TamrielFoundry. For those of you who would like to, you can also create/use an enjin account to join teso-rp.com. There are plenty of interesting discussions, stories, and more to see, new friendships to make, and a community to help shape.

I plan to RP when I am able to play the game. I need to go read up on Argonian lore, as I know really nothing about Elder Scrolls lore. So, count me in on the RP. As for my roleplay history, I started with D&D and tabletop roleplaying. I have made small attempts in some MMORPGs. Roleplayed a little bit on Wyrmrest Accord in WoW, super small tiny bits in Rift on Faeblight, and quite a bit on Landroval in Lord of the Rings Online. Not sure about what class, but I know I will start out with templar.

I am a hardcore RPer myself, I plan to explore the less-established lore of the Argonians, what mysteries await in the Black Marshes, why secrets may still exist now that may have been long dead by the events of Skyrim.  TBH I would adore the idea of a chat channel that is in-character, or weekly/monthly events that encourage RP in various locations.  I also from a crunch point of view would have no issue escorting folks (once I am high enough level to do so) to these events so there will not be a strict limitation of "level" to attend the events.  

 

I have found in personal experience that running dungeons or exploring zones is fun in character, but Raids and even PvP can get very meta and difficult to manage, how do you tell someone you died at the Foundry and will respawn in a few seconds?  I think in character journals of events tend to be a better medium for expressing the success of events, and as many authors in the past have shown, can also be great fodder for future books.

I'd be happy to look into establishing an IC chat channel. However, that involves finding how long distance conversation would work in ESO. In WoW, the explanation was enchanted hearthstones, or goblin/gnomish radios. What would you suggest?

As a hardcore roleplayer, what types of events have you participated in/put on? How did you plan and prepare for them? Would you be willing to run some, even if they're simply one -offs when you have time? And this applies to everyone, not just Fox. I ask everyone, hardcore or casual, these questions.

In character journals and recaps are fantastic, and are fun to write, but I also enjoy doing the things ICly. It will ultimately come up to the participants and the situation. To each their own.

The one MMO that Marrra and I roleplayed in was D&D Online. We were in a guild that RP'd on dedicated nights and we loved it, we really did. Sure it took us 3x the time to finish an instance but who cares?

The catch is, as much as I am enjoying the sound of ESO so far, we're joined at the hip and with FFXIV under our belt, I think we won't be doing ESO until at least 12 months down the track. It would only be sooner if FFXIV began to go sour with the content they bring out.

If we did come into the game, we would both LOVE to do this :D

" I plan on Restoring my family to its rightful place in society. I plan on taking the fight to those high elfs and making them suffer like my people did. I plan on killing anyone that stands in my way to glory. Even if it means fellow pact members who do not understand the basic rule of my people. Even mother goddess will grow angry at what one of her children will be doing to get the power he rightfully deserves "

" That Dagger has the blood of those that dare try to stop me and my family. From high elves to slaves. All that stood in my way have died by that very dagger. Nobody from the Domion to the pack to the dagger fall pests will stand in my way of restoring my family. No body be it ally or enemy. " Another chuckle could be heard from shadows once more.

Hey Ragmar, I once led a sizeable RP guild in WoW and one of our cornerstones was the "story night". I have an archive of RP organizational stuff that I'd be happy to share if you're interested; among which, a write up on "Roleplay 101" as well as an outline for "Do's and Don'ts" for story night events. I'll clean them up and post them here; feel free to use or not as you like.

I would love to get into role-playing but am not sure how it's done in-game, as it seems rather redundant--you know Role-playing in a role-playing game.  I think of a back story for my character long before I create my character just for the immersion factor.  I've done this with every table-top, single player, and MMO I've ever played. I can still remember the name , race, and class of the first paper D&D game I ever played. 

I have a back story for a Breton Dark Mage Sorcerer (DMS) and another for a Dunmer DMS, so right now it's a matter of finding the right Alliance/RP Family fit for me.

I did pre-order the Imperial edition, so I'll be looking for an in-game husband--I even cleared this with my RL husband.

I play EST and am off and on from around 9am until 7 or 8pm (or later depending what's going on).  I work from home, so if I'm not teaching or grading, I'm playing.

I'd love to join whatever roleplay anyone is planning on! I know XXX is looking for RP family members (of the Dunmer variety.) If you're into that thing, I'm sure he'd love a PM. Currently I'm in an Ebonheart RP group known as "Bloodline." They're Dunmer / Daedra Cult oriented, but they'll take all races. Just a heads up for anyone interested.

There will be some conflicts I'm sure, I saw someone that wanted to create a daedra worshipping character, that's fine except the in game Daedra will probably kill you unless there's some mechanism designed to allow you to join them. Doubt that, but there are other ways to be in character. Assassins joining the dark brotherhood etc... so

roleplaying will have to be according to game mechanics, pretending you are a daedric prince might be amusing but somewhat demented unless you are actually able to 

get the title in the game....

I'll throw my hat/horned helmet/cowl into the ring.  My back story is a work in progress but I should have things straight by release.

I spent all that time researching Altmer lore convinced I wanted to go cross-alliance.  Found out today, I wasn't happy with how my Altmer looked and actually prefer my Dunmer.

I am actually looking for a RP Group as I type this and if there is a group within in Gaiscioch that loves to RP that's even better. My only thing is I am from a long form RP environment and have yet to really find this in MMOs.  Yes, I am a dreaded paragraph RPer folks *runs and hides*.  Basically my preferred style is as follows:

  • Paragraph based - 3-4 lines per emote is fine combining both conversation, expressions and action
  • Minimal combat based on game mechanics - I was totally turned off MMO RP after being killed one two many times by a higher level  "Sith Lord" in SWTOR, LOL.
  • Turn Based scenes
  • Storyline based not PVE based.  Not a huge fan of RPing while questing but would rather instead develop story beyond what the game offers us but staying within lore.

What I would love to see happen in ESO is some sort "House" a la Game of Thrones that could also involve other guilds as well.  Hope I haven't scared anyone off yet!

I'm fairly new here, but I've done a lot of RPing in various games, which started years ago while I was still in high-school and turned into my writing degree. I'm game for anything! I've been working on a character for ESO and I'm excited to get back into a real group of RPers.

Ragmar, I'll be doing early release. My new character is almost finished, but maybe we can start a thread of character bios?

I'm going to try my best at this, but my play schedule is unpredictable so I will mostly be casually taking part. I'm psyched to do what I can though.

I enjoy a bit of roleplay so hope to see a group develop within Gaisioch.  Say hi if you see me in game on Sunniva she will be my Ebonheart RP character.  She is an old no nonsense mercenary, that has maybe lost a step due to age, but her experience will hopefully carry her through.

I am almost always "in-character" when I am playing - it is a RPG - and I am my wood elf - it is how I enjoy the game to it's fullest.   That's why all the decisions I make are based on what my character wood do - not me - well - actually it is me.  In my heart and mind I am a wood elf :)

The previous statement ... "my character wood do..." is not a typo - it is a play on words and you should have chuckled but if not - please laugh now or I will feel bad :(

I'm with you, Morgiana. I always play in-character, which is way selecting the "right"race is so important to me. I really want to play an Argonian, but I'm not sure I would feel like it's an extension of myself.  Of course, that may be just the paradigm switch I need to really enjoy the game.

When I first found on-line MMORPGs and logged onto EverQuest for the first time there was no doubt that everyone was playing in character and no thought of there being any other way!

Ezsme -

That is the main reason why I have never been able to play races other than humanoid... Cat people, Lizards, gnomes, etc... I have tried - but I just can't relate to them and therefore they can't relate to me.  I have just grown to accept that and I am thusly satisfied not being one of them regardless of any other appeal they may offer.
