Unity Maxim RP & Combat Meter ~
Taught by the Sanctuary and Sindaria Roleplay Groups
In this class, we will briefly explain the Unity Maxim combat meter and the Unity Empire pouch system for new RP players who either don’t know what a combat meter is in the first place or don’t have one set up yet, and will help those who don’t have one set up with the setup procedure. These systems are used in Sanctuary’s and Sindaria’s RPs at the Fantasy Faire. They are not strictly required for either RP, but they are recommended so you can enjoy the full extend of the RPs. So if you don’t know what a combat meter or pouch system is or need help setting yours up, come to this class.

Roleplay Etiquette 101 ~
Taught by Oliviermadeileine Resident of the Sanctuary Roleplay group
One of the more important things when you manage to create a character, as important to the process of thinking into existence an interesting original character, is the fact  that you are part of an environment. The freedom creative of novelist sadly is not the same as player or role-playing game, the secret about this beyond Good and Evil or Chaotic or Lawful is the chance to let yourself become an adventurer and find for yourself that all the people, or in the case of Second Life all the avatars matter.

IC Versus OOC, Relationships, And Playing With Ethics. A Class For All Levels of RP ~
Taught by Martine Serpente of the Sanctuary Roleplay group
First and foremost in importance is one of the most difficult concepts for many to grasp: IC or IN character, versus OUT of character. Even those who get it can tend to forget at times. It is vital to get this one straight though for the sake of good RP and peace. Too, ethics. RP is about the journey, not the destination. It’s not about winning, it is about playing. To do this well, we need to treat each other well, and get where others are coming from. All levels need this! Key differences to understand: IC versus OOC relationships, and when it’s a romance for YOU or for your character!

Characterization Via Appearance And Action ~
Taught by Martine Serpente of the Sanctuary Roleplay group
Characterization: Who is your character? How do you show this? In Sl it can be both visual and via actions and thoughts represented. What does your character like? Dislike? Wear? How do they appear? You can be straightforward on the humanoids, or no. Are they gloriously lovely but awful villains? Or monstrous in appearance, and the sweetest ‘person’ that you could ever meet. What do you hide? (Even from yourself) What does the world know? Talk on shopping tips included!
