OOC Communication Is A Good Idea

Hey there! So you like to roleplay? That’s awesome! Lots of people like to roleplay, and with lots of people comes lots of different point of views! Here’s a few tips on how to work through some complications to get back to having fun!

Sometimes unexpected stuff happens in your storyline, or with the people you’re playing with, and things swing in a direction you don’t want it to go in. Oh no! What do you do?

Don’t Panic!

This can be stressful, especially if you’re emotionally invested in your characters and your partners (ie. you like them a lot!) so take a step back and breathe. Lift your hands from that keyboard and go get a snack or something! Count to twenty! Hug a pet! Take time to cool off because this will be a big help.

We can fix this!

Communication is very important and everyone needs to be on the same page to avoid future conflict. Work with everyone involved to come to a mutual agreement on how to manage it. Don’t run away! That doesn’t solve anything!

Why the rush!?

People and emotions are complicated. Take as much time as you need when dealing with them; try and maintain an open, relaxed environment. Refer to the first bullet if you have to. ;)

Keep it contained: be considerate.

Most times the issues do not need to spread outside of those directly related to the incident, and people outside of the conflict DO NOT appreciate being pulled into it. Take it to whispers, a party chat, an outside client - but not in a public channel just because you want validation.

Let It Go! Like that song.

Sometimes people will shut down and refuse to deal with it. Give them their space and move on instead of letting it get to you; it’s their issue and you can’t fix everybody. After the conflict has been resolved, do just that: let it go. You will be much happier.

I believe in this game and in this community. Let’s try and stick together and make it better for everybody.

//For your viewing pleasure! Thank you for the compliment! It’s nice to know that people think my characters are aesthetically pleasing. While I do enjoy my Warrior, it’s rather apparent to me that most of ya’ll like Conor. So, I’ll be keeping up with his regular posts and such, responding to question, etc. Thanks again!

Hey, it’s an event! My first one on Wildstar, in fact! Oh geez!

“WAT IS THIS”

DO NOT PANIC FRIEND I WILL EXPLAIN

Basically, it’s an apple picking contest… sort of! The competition is simple: hidden away, somewhere in the grove, is the golden apple! The first person to find it will win a prize of 50g and the (IC only) golden apple trophy! 

After the contest, everyone will be free to pick apples, relax by a bonfire, and enjoy fresh cider, pie, and other delicious treats! With any luck, people will be leaving with a bag of fresh apples and full bellies to welcome in autumn. 

“WOW THAT SOUNDS TERRIBLE BUT HEY IM CURIOUS WHEN AND WHERE IS ALL THIS" 

The event will be taking place Sunday, October 5th, at 8PM EST. It might be moved to Saturday depending on how things pan out for me schedule-wise, but I will make every effort to give advance notice if this happens. Probably won’t be an issue.

The event will take place at my character’s plot. Feel free to add Leonyrr as a neighbor to attend! If you can’t for any reason, fear not! The place will be public. Just have the visitor addon handy. 

"I’M A CHUA AND/OR OTHER DOMINION RACE CAN I ATTEND”

Sure! Could always use some additional material to stoke the fire. 

In all seriousness, this is all happening on the exiles side of the Evindra server!

I hope to see people there! With any luck, this’ll go smoothly! :>
