Entering into the world of roleplay has its joys and unforgettable moments. As roleplayers, we strive to create a sense of immersion whilst delving into a whole new world. The limit of our imaginations and abilities to create are put to the test, as we use our wonderful minds to create adventures in a virtual reality full of life, and in the case of the members here at SWTOR-RP, a virtual world full of lightsabers, evil-doers, heroes, and scruffy-looking nerf herders. However, just like any community group, the world of roleplay also has its vices. Veterans of roleplay become set in their ways, whilst newcomers may find it difficult to conform, and we find ourselves in a battle over who's group is more superior, more unique, and more exclusive. It is the battle of the cliques.
The issue of cliques in roleplay is raised by Sa Chi in an edition of All The Galaxy's A Stage. He talks about some of the issues that newcomers may face when coming across the grumpy old veterans of roleplay, as well as pointing out some great resources to the newbies of roleplay to help them get started. And where else would these great roleplaying resources come from other than here at SWTOR-RP?
Just as Sa Chi points out, newcomers to roleplay shouldn't be put off by the veteran-only exclusive roleplaying groups. Be sure to check out the full article at Ask A Jedi, and feel free to comment on the issue of roleplaying cliques, as well as sharing any experiences with such groups in the comments section below."Sites like swtor-rp are filled with helpful players, and in particular have a team of RP Guides (that I’ll be covering in a future article). If you are looking for ways to come in out of the cold don’t hesitate to ask for help. In my experience the community is filled with very helpful players. Get clear on what you are looking for from RP and ask around."
