PostSubject: HELP: Roleplay Terminology   Sun Sep 07, 2014 11:23 pm

Sometimes, it seems like roleplaying games speak a language of their own.  Many terms have come into common usage over the years.  To help avoid confusion, we'll list the most often-used ones here.

RP:  Roleplay - what we all do when we're not ourselves!

IC:  In-Character - posting, thinking, and acting as someone other than yourself.

OOC:  Out Of Character - who you are when you're not your character.

NPC:  Non-Player Character - a character played by staff, often used to supplement or move a story along.

APC:  Active Player Character - a character played by an individual player.

ICA=ICC:  In-Character Actions equal In-Character Consequences - just what it sounds like!  The things you do in-character will have consequences, from slapping a Klingon to telling an Admiral that they're boring you...

Char:  Character.

Alt:  Alternate character.
