Roleplay Policy

What exactly is roleplay?

Roleplay is a type of interactive storytelling, where everyone plays one character in an extensive ongoing novel. As other players take actions, it changes the world in which your character lives, and your character would react accordingly. Roleplaying is the process of sharing those reactions with others on the game in a way that's fun for everyone. In VirtuaPern's case, the extensive ongoing novel takes place on the world of Pern as created by Anne McCaffrey.

Below is a list of help files that define and give examples of different type of roleplay (aka RP) situations and what is considered appropriate and inappropriate.
