Alright, so I have a bone to pick.

For about fifteen years, I've been roleplaying not just here but a handful of other forums and games and I've noticed a running trend on every single one of them.

I either have too broad of a vocabulary and intimidate newer roleplayers, or scare off the others from even joining in threads/sessions.

I don't get what the deal is, it's just the english language and it feels like every single time I have an epic idea and go with the flow, everyone flees to their little corners and hidey holes. Do I need to lay out cheese? Posture and beg for players to join in? What am I doing wrong that's causing everyone to run the other direction? I really don't get it. Roleplay is about co-op story telling, not self-centered stories. You create an entire world with a single post, and everyone has a chance to participate and become a part of the story with each characters background and experiences.

I'm not looking for sympathy, I've been doing this for too long to let others even bother giving it. My issue lays in the fact that we have so many players here, yet only the leadership seems to garner any sort of activity. I get it, most of you have known each other for years - but here's the problem: It's driving off new ideas, new concepts, and new players because we look so "inclusive" to the inner circles. Spread out, touch base in other characters stories, poke at some of the newfish instead of digging holes and hiding in them.

I'm just bloody sick of bouncing from site to site looking for roleplay, and only finding a handful of the community actively engaging with one another.

TL;DR: I hate being excluded for worthless reasons. Quit it!

Amen...? I will apologize for myself. I have finally finished a huge chapter in my character's background and now can spread out. I'm horrible at branching out at different time lapses in my character's life. I'm trying to get better at it. I hope that I can join a thread that you are in and see just how AWESOME your vocabulary is, even if mine is seriously lacking.

I hear you there. I used to spread out pretty thin on the forums with my dragon character but she's going into retirement fairly soon. I wouldn't say my vocab is awesome but I feel like I scare people off sometimes because of how I write.

Honestly I only know two people on this site x.x; That's probably my fault but it may not be. -shrugs- I'm always up for role play, I just don't always get time to run around and read everyone else's stuff and join in on what catches my interest. I run a site of my own that ends up taking precedent over Tal at times. My schedule is probably much different than most people being that I start my day before anyone else. I'm done with work normally by the time most of the world is getting up to go to work and I'm sleeping while all the first shifters are slaving away lol.

I've skimmed through your stuff Baesonna and I don't find you intimidating. What I have managed to read I enjoyed, maybe we can brew something up in the rp world =)

If anyone else wants to start a role play with me or wants me to join in on an existing one all you have to do is ask ^_^.

You can shoot me a PM on here or you can catch me on YIM or Skype. Just shoot me a message letting me know where you got my name from.

I am trying to figure out how you scare people off? I didn't realize there was any cliques or inner circles going on within Tallendon. I think honestly that sort of problem even happened back in Siannodel and that was the cause of the last one, plus with all the drama that escalated with several people who be nameless. I am trying my best to accommodated everyones needs, that's why I always state to bring in friends if you have to.. this is the reason basically this forum consist of friends, and friends of friends etc other then that im honestly not sure what to say, on my part I apologize if I done anything wrong im trying hard to make everyone happy here and make them feel welcome..

That's completely understandable, I used to run a forum of my own in times past and understand the work that goes into it. I'm discussing the matter with Cir at the moment on yahoo. There's a lot that's involved in the thread that might tie into many other posts if things go the way I hope.
