So I'm pretty new to RP to be fairly honest, I grasp the concept and enjoy creating a character (being a writer) I take joy in developing and learning about the character I have made. It becomes a point where they're teaching me about who they are rather than the other way around (again usually when writing a story/book). But that's the same concept, I understand staying in character and such basically "Acting" truly playing a character some times one who is far removed from yourself. I fall short on the fact that I am not a Tolkien buff, I love the world he's created and I love learning more about it. So I'll be honest in saying my character (so far) does not have a novel's worth of back story because frankly he's still teaching me who he is the more I play and adventure with him. But being someone who wants to RP and not really knowing how to go about finding others do to it with has proven difficult. Hence I came here! Before I knew there were servers dedicated to RP I made my "main" which is a term I sort of despise in some aspect because it's not like I will not like the other characters I play as. But I digress, point being traveling the large world that is LOTRO with no one and wanting to RP is sort of lonesome. So I was wondering if there was anyone who would like to do it together. Sort of start our own "Fellowship of The Ring". I don't really mind making a new character on a new server because at present my elf (main) is on Arkenstone. (I like the story of the Arkenstone, from what I have heard), but like I said it gets tiresome and really lonely some times doing repetitive quests and such by yourself when you really want to play an MMO to RP and get the full experience. It feels as though I am get maybe 20-30%
So in short like I said in case you just skipped to this highlighted line. Is I am hoping that there is someone who wants to start our own "Fellowship of The Ring", someone who maybe even can teach me a thing or two about RP. Because I learn my doing and having someone tell me "yeah you're doing it right" or "no that's not quite it." Someone to truly enjoy this wonderful game with maybe even make a friendship through this. I am open to doing it on any server just at present my main is on Arkenstone. It doesn't have to be this serious thing it can just be something we do when were sick of adventuring alone or have a set schedule like "okay every other Friday at blah, blah we'll meet up and continue our journey together." Just something to get the most out of this game.
Feel free to ask if you have questions I know I can be unclear about things some times. I play a couple hours everyday so I can really play whenever someone else wants.
