  • Mildly random, but your avatar is absolutely beautiful. Original character, by chance? :o

    (...now that I'm writing this, I realize somewhat sheepishly that I also commented on your previous avatar. :T)

    • It's fine : P And actually, it's a friend's depiction of myself!

      Posted by Sami Nornal

    • Oh wow, that was awesome of them to do for you! It's very vibrant and pleasant, and the shade of pink in the hair is my basically my favorite color, so the avvie always aggressively catches my eye whenever I see it.

      Tbh, I feel like the story behind it just makes the whole thing even better, I love stuff like that.

      Posted by Chel

    • Yeah! It's missing the bottom part on the forums for format, but it's basically me as a DnD character, which is why I have pointed ears. My friend decided I was a half-elf sorceress!

      Posted by Sami Nornal

    • Ooo, nice. :D

      I always default to Human Woman Fighter in basically all RPG sort of things I do myself because I'm a bit boring. And because running around slicing things up with a ridiculous sword of some sort always seems like a lovely bit of escapism, lol. Do you use the half-elf sorceress depiction for actual D&D playing, or was it a just for fun sorta thing?

      Posted by Chel

    • Basically just for fun. I usually play Warlocks : P

  • :3~

  • So, how do I get started with RPing?

    Where would you recommend that I start?

    Is there an RP I can join to get accustomed to RPing, or should I just jump into any RP (that's open or OWP)?

    Should I start with Tales of Worlds or with Tales of Characters?

    Sorry for all the questions, I just have never done this before.

    • Questions in order:

      1. To get started RPing in general, it's a good idea to make sure you've read over the Introduction and Rules threads (zeldauniverse.net/forums/Threa…n-to-the-Role-Play-Guild/ and zeldauniverse.net/forums/Threa…es-and-Regulations-Index/ )
      2. You can either jump into any open Tales of Worlds RPs, start your own, or get a character approved for the Tales of Character section.
      3. That really depends on what you want. The Tales of Characters section requires a character profile to be filled and approved by either myself, Ruki, or our reclusive approver Drammor. To get a character approved for the ToC, consult the Character Creation Guide (zeldauniverse.net/forums/Threa…tion-and-Approval-Manual/ ) and make a character. The ToW requires a lot less of this sort of stuff; you only need character approval from the person running the thread for that particular ToW RP.

    • Thank you, if I have more questions, I will ask you.

      Posted by DarkLink333

    • Can I join multiple RPs at the same time, or should I stick with one till I'm more experienced?

      Posted by DarkLink333

    • I'd say join one at least for a little bit until you get a feel for it, then join others if you think you can handle it. We've had people on the forum with up to...thirty RPs at once, I think? Although she sort of burned herself out, so I'd avoid that.

      Posted by Sami Nornal

    • Thanks, I will start with one then.

      Posted by DarkLink333

  • Hiya! Any chance you could tell me where your avatar is from? :)

    Posted by Chel

    • It's from a webcomic called Gunnerkrigg Court. Art starts out a bit wonky but improves as the comic goes on.

      Posted by Sami Nornal

    • Thank you! I'll definitely be looking into it. :)

      Posted by Chel

  • Hi, long time, no chat:

    How have you been doing?! ;)

    Posted by Tuf Pic

  • msg characters to u or in the thread?

    Posted by gerudoyoshi

  • Wait, which clan are you associated with?

    Posted by epixtar

  • Hello there,

    I have seen you around the board and I just wanted to take some time to say hello.
    How have you been?

    Tead.

    Posted by Tead

    • I've been alright.

      Posted by Sami Nornal

    • You all set for Christmas?
      What are your plans?

      I will be spending my Christmas here alone, but I have sent some cards home and they should arrive on time. I have written some letters so that everyone will know how it is that I am doing.

      Looking forward to the New Year?
      I hope that mine will be much better than this year has been.

      Happy Holidays!
      Tead.

  • Do you still play Mafia or nah?

    Posted by Linkle

  • Ruki told me to contact you for an RP. You game?

    Posted by epixtar

    • That I am. I kind of have an idea floating around in my head for what to do, but I'd want to run it past you. Dragons, right?

      Posted by Sami Nornal

    • Sure, if you want. At that point, I was kind of just throwing around ideas with my friends, and one of them said dragons. So I went with it. Anyways, what's your idea?

      Posted by epixtar

    • The basic idea I was going with was that a powerful dragon put its soul into a vessel, so it could come back if it was killed. The vessel is able to be moved, and the dragon uses it to go around killing things and uses the bodies to craft a new body for itself. The dragon's been slain recently and is starting to return, and Kevyn and Wil are trying to track it down and destroy it before it gets too large and powerful.

      Posted by Sami Nornal

    • Sounds good!

      Posted by epixtar

    • Reminds me of Voldemort's Horcruxes.

  • Hey Sam! It's been quite a while since I last spoke with you. How've you been?

  • Hey Sam! It's been quite a while since I last spoke with you. How've you been?

    Posted by Haagar

    • Pretty good. I've been working a lot lately, but I'm still sane.

      Posted by Sami Nornal

    • More than I can say for myself half the time, haha.

      Posted by Haagar

    • It happens. A decent chunk of it's RPG stuff, which is fun but at the same time, it can get a bit draining after awhile.

      Posted by Sami Nornal

  • *poke*

    Posted by Kurai

  • I would like to join your RP, if still possible. But I could not find the Ancient Robots on the list of races, if not available to be used as a race, is it still possible to join?

    Posted by CallofthewildOot

    • It's still possible, yeah. And you could totally join as an Ancient Robot, they're not on the list because I...kind of forgot about them, to be honest.

      Posted by Sami Nornal

  • -poke-

  • "disapproves"

    Posted by Rakshael

    • He's a rather annoyed narwhal, my avatar.

      Posted by Sami Nornal

    • No no, you spelled "disapproves" incorrectly. You have a double S instead of double P. Not to be a pedant, but it is bothering me.

      Posted by Rakshael

  • Sam, it was written thousands of years ago, by angels, that you shalt join Tales of Mafia

    Posted by Silver

  • Sam I am, do you like green mafias and ham?

    Posted by Jaime Lannister

  • Thou should signeth up for mafia

  • Dude, you there?

    Posted by Ge0kinetic

    • Sorry, I was going to post on the weekend but I ended up having no internet for my computer, which makes typing a hassle. Writing a post now.

      Posted by Sami Nornal

  • Heeeeeeeey, just wanted to let you know it's your turn to post in Asylum Seekers. Just in case you didn't see it.

    Posted by Ge0kinetic

  • yay <3 I'd kind of like to do a villain character too, but I'll wait and see what others do first.

    Posted by Link64

    • Makes sense. My character's profile should shed some light on part of the criminal scene, which should help.

      Posted by Sami Nornal

  • Mormon Narwhale, how are you doing my man?

    Posted by Aquamentus

  • hi. join mafia. i'd like to see you there :3

    Posted by Malia

      Posted by Sami Nornal

    • I AM EXCITE

  • Hi, I was looking at getting into roleplaying and ran into the Hogwarts thread.... and I have some questions, if you're willing to answer

    Posted by Mordred

  • HI!! ;)

    Posted by Tuf Pic

  • I can underdstand if you want to ditch knocks folly. Ive been waiting for a while now but it seems like your interested in the other roleplays. Hope your okay.

    Posted by JulianT

    • .I don't want to ditch it, no. I just checked it and realized you'd posted last...for some reason ZU didn't give me a notification about that so I had assumed I was the most recent poster and was waiting on you to post, but apparently not.

      Posted by Sami Nornal

    • I'll post later tonight, I've got work until around 10 pm

      Posted by Sami Nornal

    • take your time
