Welcome to RP Buddies!


Our main goal here is to help navigate the wonderfully chaotic Roleplay Section to new and beginner RPers alike. Whether you are a veteran RPer or have never stepped into the RP section, this thread is for you!

Post here and we will be pairing up new roleplayers (whether new to the site or not) with veteran roleplayers who know their way around the forums. It's a wonderful chance for those who don't know much about roleplaying to learn new things, and who knows, even the experienced roleplayers may learn a thing or two from mentoring others, while having fun along the way.

New to certain aspects of the roleplay forum but not others! You can fill out both forms!

To take part, all you have to do is fill out this very simple form below!


If you have not roleplayed before:

Code: Select all
[b]Username:[/b]

[b]Do you have an original character (OC)?:[/b] [if so, please link, paste in spoiler, or briefly describe] [if not, are you willing to make one for a roleplay?]

[b]Do you prefer speed or quality?[/b]: [can be a mixture of both]

[b]What is your preferred genre?:[/b]

[b]Including yourself, would you prefer a group of 2, 3, 4, or more in a roleplay?:[/b]

[b]Any other information we need to know?:[/b]


If you have roleplayed before, including outside YWS:

Code: Select all
[b]Username:[/b]

[b]Have you roleplayed on YWS before?:[/b]  [if yes, clarify if only before/after revamp]

[b]If you have, what is your preferred level of roleplaying?:[/b]  [beginner (Hollow), intermediate (Realm), advanced (SBs)] [mention if no preference, or multiple preferences]

[b]Do you prefer speed or quality?[/b]: [can be mixture of both]

[b]Link to sample roleplay post:[/b]

[b]What is your preferred genre?:[/b]

[b]Would you like to create the RP and be the DM? If so, do you need an idea?:[/b]

[b]Including yourself, would you prefer a group of 2, 3, 4, or more in a roleplay?:[/b]

[b]Any other information we need to know?:[/b]


Once you're done filling that out, just post it here in this thread, and then simply wait until you get tagged with your pairing. From there onwards, it's up to all of you wonderful humans to get together and ROLEPLAY!

If you'd like to buddy up outside of official buddying, feel free to do so! Everyone here is interested in RPing.

Username: Vincian! But people tend to call me Omnom, as that's my old username

Have you roleplayed on YWS before?: Yes! Both before and after the revamp

If you have, what is your preferred level of roleplaying?: advanced ^^ I much prefer Storybooks, but you'll find me in a roleplay realm if I feel up to it.

Do you prefer speed or quality?: I prefer pretty high quality posts, but I also like fast paced, high quality posts. Gimme quality but juuuuuiced up, high speed quality XD

Link to sample roleplay post: Aether's Heart and my most recent one The Pheligian Falcon: Prison Break

What is your preferred genre?: I am a high fantasy, big magic sucker. I do also enjoy sci-fi and modern futuristic.

Would you like to create the RP and be the DM? If so, do you need an idea?: I would prefer not to, but I'd love to help co-lead! Be a guuuiding hand

Would you prefer a group of 2, 3, or 4 in a roleplay?: 4+ please. I like groups of five, they tend to be well-rounded casts.

Any other information we need to know?: I love to worldbuild and talk plot! Also, I like collaborative-style roleplaying, where we jump into a writing pad together and throw plot ideas around and write together real time ^^

Signing up as a Mentor!

Username: SilverNight, or you can just call me Silver!

Have you roleplayed on YWS before?: Yes, both before and after the revamp. I've also done it on other websites in the past, but this is the only place I'm doing it now. c:

If you have, what is your preferred level of roleplaying?: Honestly, I'm happy with all of them. Most of the time I go with the Realm because I like that it has replies of a pretty good length/quality, but it's faster than an SB. I'm definitely comfortable in all three, though!

Do you prefer speed or quality?: Like I mentioned before, I'm willing to sacrifice speed for quality, but I'm also willing to lose a bit of quality if it means the RP's moving fast. I'm pretty much in the middle.

Link to sample roleplay post: The Chiaroscuro Technique

What is your preferred genre?: Fantasy's most exciting to me, though I do like sci-fi too.

Would you like to create the RP and be the DM? If so, do you need an idea?: I definitely think I could, though I'm perfectly happy to join rather than create.

Including yourself, would you prefer a group of 2, 3, 4, or more in a roleplay?: My favorites are duos (2) and 5-6 people!

Any other information we need to know?: I'll be having fun no matter what! I love talking about roleplays/characters/plot with other people and I'm always happy to chat about it ^_^

Imma be a mentor-

Username: Ignorance

Have you roleplayed on YWS before?: Yep! Before and after the revamp.

If you have, what is your preferred level of roleplaying?: No preference! However, my ideal length of response is not a single sentence, but also not a full on paragraph.

Do you prefer speed or quality?: Yes.

Link to sample roleplay post: Fandom Block Party Now, this one’s a bit old, so my writing has improved since then!

What is your preferred genre?: Fantasy!

Would you like to create the RP and be the DM? If so, do you need an idea?: I’d be more than happy to create an rp, although if the other person has an idea, I’ll go with that (if I like it).

Including yourself, would you prefer a group of 2, 3, 4, or more in a roleplay?: 2

Any other information we need to know?: I tend to roleplay Sanders Sides, but I will also use oc’s!
Do you how do?
I use any pronouns, but I prefer they/he/it/rot :)

I am new to this and I need help.

Username: AlmostImmortal.

Do you have an original character (OC)? if so, please link, paste in spoiler, or briefly describe. If not, are you willing to make one for a roleplay?: Oh boy, I have several OC's. I have Malvis, a human and sorta shapeshifter but not in the traditional sense, Estella Fay, she has light magic and can manipulate and generate light, Cyra, who is pure tank material and can survive pretty much any attack unless it includes water, and Artemis, who turns into a massive Mexican wolf once the sun goes down.

Do you prefer speed or quality? Haha! Yes.

What is your preferred genre? Fantasy or action-adventure.

Any other information we need to know? I have roleplayed before, but it was all very informal and very chaotic and never on an official website. So, I'm not completely out of my element but I'm still a little shakey.

Would be happy to mentor!

Username: Carina

Have you roleplayed on YWS before?: Heh. Probably a little too much.

If you have, what is your preferred level of roleplaying?: I prefer RP Realm-styled RPs! It's a nice inbetween of quality and speed that I have the bandwidth of doing right now.

Do you prefer speed or quality?: I can be crazy fast sometimes, but right now I can post at least once a week in a RP Realm, or faster if they're shorter posts. Because of my million other commitments and RPs, I typically spend <10 minutes each post. So, mid-tier quality and speed.

Link to sample roleplay post: From recent activity --> can be as long as this post or as short as this post

What is your preferred genre?: Low-level fantasy/sci-fi, comedy, slice-of-life, drama, contemporary. I like to be silly but can do angst as well, lol. I'm not very good at historical things or stories with tons of lore, though.

Would you like to create the RP and be the DM? If so, do you need an idea?: Unfortunately I don't have time to DM another RP. :( I am happy to participate, though!

Including yourself, would you prefer a group of 2, 3, 4, or more in a roleplay?: I can do 2-4 if others are chill with what I have the bandwidth of doing!

Any other information we need to know?: I would prefer being with people I haven't RPed before, and would prefer newer members of the site as well. I'd love to help mentor them!

Username: Liminality

Do you have an original character (OC)?: Not really? But I'd be willing to make one for an RP! I do have these two very rough character sketches that aren't really genre or setting-specific (which I may or may not have barfed out when I realised there was a beginner's section for RP month)
Spoiler! :


#1 character based on this story idea of someone who is trying to reboot a beloved piece of media to suit the times (oh no)

Name: Yang

Age: 22

Goals, desires: Art for the sake of it, but also to make people happy - conflict (shouldn't art itself make people happy, she thinks)

First impressions: weak-willed, wishy-washy, ignorant, naive

Hidden depths: strong convictions in the role of her craft, gritty, adaptable

Strengths: intelligent, communication

Weaknesses: going all the way, overly scrupulous

Physical appearance: brunette, hair tied in a side ponytail, heart-shaped face, dresses in a suit and tie with earthy colours


#2 an anti-villainous character

Name: Yue

Age: 23

Goals, desires: To be free.

First impressions: smug, hostile, bossy

Hidden depths: believes ~society~ is messed up,

Strengths: intelligent, self-sufficient

Weaknesses: Impatience.

Physical appearance: short black hair, chalky skin, a wiry frame, long black skirt and an old-fashioned grey blouse


Do you prefer speed or quality?: Speed terrifies me, because I am a slow, slow person, so I'll say quality.

What is your preferred genre?: Miscellaneous fantasy/ sci-fi/ speculative, but I'd also be pretty comfortable with a modern setting, I think

Any other information we need to know?: I *used* to roleplay in a site far, far away, but I disappeared from it because of ~life reasons~ and just generally not being able to commit/ socialise well enough. *sweats* So yeah, that's my criminal track record, but I think I've reformed now.

LittleLee says...



Username: LittleLee (Or just Lee for short!)

Have you roleplayed on YWS before?: Yep! I've played both in the RP forums and the club, before and after the revamp.

If you have, what is your preferred level of roleplaying?: I prefer the Hollow and the realm, because they're easier to handle and fast-paced. The odds of the entire RP getting stalled because a few participants are unable to make frequent posts decrease quite a bit when you can afford to make quick posts that require little time and effort.

Do you prefer speed or quality?: A mix of both. I'm not willing to compromise on quality regardless of how fast/slow the RP is.

Link to sample roleplay post: Soul's Blight

What is your preferred genre?: Fantasy, thriller, post-apocalypse... anything with a good amount of action and fighting, really.

Would you like to create the RP and be the DM? If so, do you need an idea?: I would love to do so, but I don't think I need any ideas! My head is full of half-baked ones, so I can take one out and bully it into what I need. :)

Including yourself, would you prefer a group of 2, 3, 4, or more in a roleplay?: I think 3-4 is ideal, especially when everyone's an active member. Small groups tend to move faster.

Any other information we need to know?: I can't commit much time to any more Storybooks or RPs in the Realm, but if you need an active player for the Hollow, count me in! I'm also willing to help out with any queries new players may have.

InuYosha says...



Username: InuYosha, previously Yoshikrab

Have you roleplayed on YWS before?: I've roleplayed since joining YWS, which was about october i believe. I've also roleplayed on other sites, too!

If you have, what is your preferred level of roleplaying?: I really don't have much of a preference, although Hollows are much easier for me, to be honest. SBs are often too slow for me, so actually, I usually prefer the Realm.

Do you prefer speed or quality?: Speed is really important to me, but that doesn't mean I completely disregard quality! For me, it depends on what kind of roleplay. In Hollows, I prefer speed more, and in SBs, I prefer quality more, because I'm aiming for a different enjoyment in different types of RPs.

Link to sample roleplay post: From Hey-Day Capriccio

What is your preferred genre?: Fantasy (basically, anything that would allow me to use my two preferred OCs haha . . .)

Would you like to create the RP and be the DM? If so, do you need an idea?: I would definitely be able to create the RP and I have many ideas, too, but I wouldn't mind seeing what someone else's idea is!

Including yourself, would you prefer a group of 2, 3, 4, or more in a roleplay?: I prefer either a duo or more than five. Nothing in between.

Any other information we need to know?: Uhhhhmmmmmm nOPE

Username: HarryHardy

Have you roleplayed on YWS before?: Yupsy, both before and after!!

If you have, what is your preferred level of roleplaying?: I dabble mostly in the realm and the sanctuary...but I do jump in the hollow here and there. :D

Do you prefer speed or quality?: A mix of both pretty much, I like it when things go fast, but I try not to sacrifice quality for speed.

Link to sample roleplay post: One of my more recent posties in a realm roleplay

What is your preferred genre?: Fantasy and sci fi are the ones I mostly dabble in...cause that's more room for me to use my already existing characters..xD

Would you like to create the RP and be the DM? If so, do you need an idea?: At the moment, I don't think I'd have the time to run another Storybook, but a Realm or Hollow roleplay...I wouldn't mind. And usually...I have more ideas than I know what to do with...xD

Including yourself, would you prefer a group of 2, 3, 4, or more in a roleplay?:

Somewhere around 2 to 4 is what I prefer.

Any other information we need to know?: I have a tendency to call posts "posties".

Also I love answering questions, so don't be afraid to bury me under a mountain of questions if you want anything clarified. :D

Username:ImaginativeAlice, call me Alice.

Do you have an original character (OC)?: [if so, please link, paste in spoiler, or briefly describe] [if not, are you willing to make one for a roleplay?] I have three characters of mine in two storybooks, here a link to there descriptions

1.Agatha Irene

small description of how Aggie is
If you are firendly with her she will be sweet with you but if you act rude you will get the same. She is adventures and curious. She always finds things that excites her.

2.Brenna Brooks

small description of how Brenna is
a kind person but she accepted that peaple expect you to be evil when you are born to goddess Nyx and she got used to of peaple staring her and bully her. She is an introvert and would rather not speak unless spoken to.

3.Veronica de la Cruz

A short description of How Veronica is

Veronica is a hot head, and she never hesitates to let her anger out, other than that she is arrogant and dominating. Only in front of the queen and the king, her arrogance is limited.


Do you prefer speed or quality?: [can be a mixture of both] I prefer quality and I am slow so maybe that's why.

What is your preferred genre?:Dark Fantasy/ Adventure/Historic fiction/Mystery/Thriller, I think I like every genre xd, but I like fantasy the most.

Including yourself, would you prefer a group of 2, 3, 4, or more in a roleplay?:Yeah, I mostly prefer a group of three, but it's always nice to work with many peaple.

Any other information we need to know?: I have never tried roleplaying outside YWS. I am in 2 or 3 storybooks but I never tried anything in roleplay hollows or realmn, I think I like structured stories and plots.

WrenZorya:

Do you have an original character (OC)?: Do my OC's for writing count? If not I can try to make a new one?

Do you prefer speed or quality?: A mixture.

What is your preferred genre?: Dark Fantasy.

Including yourself, would you prefer a group of 2, 3, 4, or more in a roleplay?: Two or three I think?

Any other information we need to know?: I love worldbuilding and writing fanfiction about my own characters and then realizing "wait this is canon!" Also, I've never done this before so if I break some sacred law I would appreciate a little slack.

Username: Vanity, short for SakeofVanity :)

Do you have an original character (OC)?: I have~ and this particular character gave me my first taste of dnd 5e roleplaying, but I am very much still new to it all, ahah~ :} She goes by Acantha Aculeus, and the spoiler below was taken out of my existing google-doc character sheet (~the main portion, that is).
Spoiler! :
Name: Acantha Aculeus (first name of Greek origin; name meaning - thorn, prickle | surname of Latin origin; name meaning - sting, etc).

Brief backstory:
Acantha lived in the rural countryside as a field plower in Arizona. She came from humble beginnings, and was raised by the poor, sickly hands of her grandfather. Her parents were involved in a corrupt irrigation scheme, and were deported to a correctional facility, toiling away in a prison farm designed for manual labour like logging, mining, quarrying, and ironically, agriculture - the very business that brought their ruin. Acantha was thus taken into the custody of her father's father, Simond Aculeus.

Several years had passed until young Acantha— just entering adolescence— received the terrible news of Simond's unexpected passing, having fallen into cardiac arrest. Upon hearing this, she fled the deserts and took to the bushland, where she embraced the open freedom of the wilderness, undertaking an old-fashioned, survival-geared lifestyle of her own. From thereon, her adventure continues, the liberty of deciding entirely for herself what path in life she plans to lead, forgoing basic living comforts in place of utmost self-reliance; her possession of skills in hunting, fighting, gathering and scavenging have all garnered enough expertise for the profile of a fine survivalist.

Personality traits: Independent, survival-oriented, self-serving, brazen, gutsy, venturesome, headstrong.

Age: 17yrs

Race: Razorclaw Shapeshifter

Class: Giant Deathstalker Scorpion Humanoid

Appearance: Tan, slightly sunburnt skin; Natural-born amber hair; Sandstone eyes; pincer-like claws for human nails (though not noticeable as noticeable in human form)

Proficiencies:
> Nature, Animal Handling & Stealth
> Knowledge of Common + Sylvan language

Do you prefer speed or quality?: I prefer quality much more over speed, but a mixture of both also sounds good!

What is your preferred genre?: Fantasy, Dystopian, Sci-fi, Action/Adventure! Most genres intrigue me :}

Including yourself, would you prefer a group of 2, 3, 4, or more in a roleplay?: Including myself, I'd like 4+ members in the group ~ the more, the merrier!

Any other information we need to know?: :]] My character carries around her grandfather's harvesting scythe to remind her of him; but the tool is already quite worn-out and blunt, so it's more for sentimental value than of use, if anything.

That's about it! :}

I would have been much more successful as a seagull or a fish.
