Here it is Lincolnaa19. Hope you like it…and all that shet.
Tried to make a new RP account from my iPod but it got terminated right after I verified it?
Might make this that blog idek
I figured since I run a Cletus Kassidy blog, and I’ve seen some other villains out there that get sub-par, not accurate reactions IC, I’d make this little guide for everyone.
I would like to say that these apply to canon characters, as well as OCs. And I am in no way, shape or form, an RP expert, this is just what I’ve gathered from RPing a villain and talking with evil!Muns.
- Look up the character. Honestly, you should do this with anyone you RP with, especially if you don’t know of the character that well. It doesn’t take extensive research, but go to Wikipedia or an appropriate wikia page, and scan their article. See who they are, what they can do, and what they’ve done Because nothing turns off an RPer more than getting treated like an average person when they’re clearly not.
- React accurately. Is your character fearless? Have they seen so much that literally nothing shocks them? Are they Frank Castle or Nick Fury? If you answered ‘no’ to any of these, then it’s time to figure out how your character would react to seeing a person like Carnage, or Doctor Doom, or what have you. No one would casually talk about the weather with Galactus, why is your character? THIS IS AN ENORMOUS PET PEEVE AND WILL MAKE A LOT OF BAD GUY RPERS UPSET.There is nothing wrong with your character showing fear, if anything, it’ll make the Mun happy (at least, it makes me happy!). If they’re going to be in awe when meeting Spider-man, they should have an accurate reaction when seeing the Green Goblin.
- Talk to the Mun. This is especially important when dealing with a fight scene, and it ties in with the ‘research the character’ tip. If you want to fight a villain (or anyone, in that matter), TALK TO THE MUN FIRST. As a rule of thumb, if a character swings a punch without telling me or giving me time to react, I don’t reply, I tell them that I don’t work that way, and that I would love to discuss a fight thread first. Plan out the fight, and pick your hits and misses carefully, which brings me to a subpoint…
Do NOT God-Mod. Do NOT Power-Play. Your character, no matter how strong, is going to get hit, is going to get injured, and is going to miss with their attacks.
When I’m RPing a fight scene, I make a point to get hit at least every other post, and flavor the hits and misses with little flourishes, such as side-stepping out of the way, but getting clipped in the side, or leaping backwards and stumbling. I also try not to land a blow in my post, and wait for my partner to tell me if I hit or miss.
Communication is key to RPing fights, so remember that.
- Do not try to change the character’s villainy. At least, not without the Mun’s approval. It’s perfectly fine, when dealing with an emotional thread, to have your character try to see the good in a villain, but try to limit it to just that. Forcing the character to be a good person when they aren’t is not proper RP etiquette.
That’s all I can think of right now, but reblog it, pass it around, and feel free to add onto it!
