Not sure when our roleplayers are going to be on the most and we want to work the events so they are not the same time as the WvW events.  I would like to try hosting one a week of some sort as an advertised guild event. 

My timing is looking like it could be shifting some.  I'll probably be diving into bed earlier just because the hubby is.  So I might actually end up doing my play time early in the day and be around when the oceanics are on due to his early hours.

Geared towards Oceanic time - On weekdays I could do something starting as early as 2:30am pst though I was thinking of 3am just so I can get myself sorted out to run it.  I would be free without interruptions up to about Noon pst, so the timing can slide from 3am pst to Noon pst depending on demand for RP events at this time.

Weekends are always a hodge podge for me, but I'm on and off a lot depending on what is going on for the day.  I won't be on for Oceanic times on weekends.  I'll more likely be on anytime after 10am pst (ie after lunch my time)

I know Izzy is thinking of how to handle the RP crew as well since we both are Draio for this room of the family.  I'll let her tell you when she was thinking of doing something

To help us out,  tell us your play time and when you think you can play an RP event.

Also, out of curiosity, let us know if you want any intro to RP or Lore classes or something similar to help with your RP in the game.  

Having RP'd in multiple gaming types since 1980, I do have some clue and can help people out with this individually or by class, as well.  (YES!  I dated myself!)  Craziest place to RP was the completely Free Form RP days on AOL in the Red Dragon Inn.  Try keeping up with things as a full room of 23 people are roleplaying.  Live Action comes in second only because you do it face to face and you aren't trying to read words and actions scrolling on a screen, but things go way faster this way!

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

Personally for me, anytime Weekend mornings so 8am PST to 12pm PST (Sat or Sunday) or after 5pm during the week (except the WvW nights). I would LOVE to have an intro to RP session or two.

I'm currently free most days, so I'll play it by ear and get into as many as I can, but being on EST could make things difficult. Here's hoping.

Great Elders, I am free every night after 6PM CST (4PM server) and for most weekends! I also have a background in RP though not as extensive as Bris..o.O and would be willing to post or host some of the ideas I have for our new home GW2! Some I have already alighted to in the Kids play family night events post. Oh muh anim, Dae

I'd love to be part of the RP events as well. I've never RP'd before and would join classes to get an idea of what to do or read up on it to prepare beforehand if class times don't jive with my availability. I'm on EST so weekends will probably work best for me. However! I will be playing nightly after work roughly from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. so I'm somewhat open to weekdays. Looking forward to more! Myk

I'm an experienced RP-er of 10+ years in MMOs and a few more before that in pen&paper. I'd love to participate in RP with the family. I won't know my work schedule until the 2nd week in Sept, but on the mornings I don't work I'd be good for 8am-noon pst. My evenings look like they'll be pretty packed but I'll certainly try to make scheduled RP events when I can.

Yeah, I'm EST, but as I stated my schedule due to hubby returning to work fits the other side of the world better. ::chuckles:: The alarm is going off tomorrow morning at 4am est for his first day on a full time job in 4 years that is not seasonal. I think I'll probably go to bed close to when he does in order to keep from disturbing him and being on his schedule. I will probably pick a weekday time that is am pst for one and see about something I can throw in on the weekend around the other events since some of us love a combo of things to do. =) Not sure when I'll start it. I'm also working with Elth who is planning WvW in the mix for Oceanics and those who can do the ealy pst am times from elsewhere in the world. I still need to talk to Izzy more to figure out what ideas she has. Of course, we can RP any time we want, but the events would be set times for something RPish - whether we are free form, have an idea to work with or a class.
