Playing Your Consequences~
Taught by Martine Serpente of Sanctuary

Building is Roleplay~

Playing it Easy, or Playing it Hard?~
Taught by Martine Serpente of Sanctuary
Who is your character, really? Playing a character doesn’t have to mean playing yourself, and can be even more deep when you don’t. It’s also far easier to not get upset if someone HATES your character and it’s not just like YOU. When does patterning after YOU start to be a problem in character and not just good flavor?
Wednesday, April 25th at 5pm slt:
Taught by Viennala Beaumont & Arctic Ranger of the Lands of Luth
This class will discuss some of the basic roleplay do’s and don’ts, and offer some practical advice to new players. What are godmodding and metagaming, and why are they bad? What’s the best way to enter a scene? To leave one? Handouts will be offered, but this class will be taught in voice.
