Im trying to get some role playing started on sonoma my home shard. I have been reading all the info that i can get from all you fine people. I have come up with a char and a guild and even posted some story line on my char. But what I'm hitting a wall on is getting some other people involved. I was hoping to get some advise from some of you more vetrain rplyer's out there..

A bit of advice I'd pass along is this. Don't concern yourself with numbers. Even if you just find one or two people to participate, plan a good organized event for them and you'll be surprised how much fun just a few people can have. I often find that the smaller events lead to better fiction writing because things aren't as confused. What's more, when others read about these events, your roleplaying will grow as others join in and side plots develop. So that's what I'd advise.

Or you can do it like I did...

Start RBG.
Bring new blood to rp.
Destroy the shard status quo and start all over again.

In the end you get a bunch of pissed elders and an active rp shard.

Well worth it.

Not everyone wants to undertake in massive social engineering. Also the RPers on Pacific are really open to new players...the status quo is actually enjoyable :)

I only left because the time difference was excluding me from events and such :(

The easiest way to make it happen, is dont look for it. Roleplay while your at the bank, in a dungeon, etc. People will normally join in, if you give them a subtle invite during your roleplay. If not, people will start to at least recognize you and then perhaps start trying to roleplay with you.

If you do decide to go looking, do some research. Find the Roleplay guilds on the shard and talk to someone in charge about possibly trying to do an event with them, or show up at one of theres (just dont crash it please) and start roleplaying with them. Great places to look are here on UOF and even Google.

My advice would be is to not let yourself get discouraged. The RP guild of your dreams will not happen in a week. Just keep on keeping on and you'll get there in time.

I agree with LAN and Sable, small groups work best and do lead to better writing. In addition, I know that no matter what shard I am on (be it Pacific or Atlantic), if I see someone at the tavern or at the mage shop rp'ing, I tend to hop in.

After all, you don't rp unless you want someone else to participate!!! So that is really a wonderful way to get people involved.
