Para Sample Ideas


Oh, the dreaded in-character para sample. It seems as if every roleplayer out here is complaining left and right about these. Why is this? More likely than not, I find that it is because the person does not know what to write about. Here I have compiled a small list of para sample ideas that can work with any character, and a brief description of how to use each one. I hope this helps you when you experience that auditioning writer’s block in the future.

This tutorial will show you how to design your own headers and signatures with custom fonts that can be used on the main page of your roleplay without have to make those tedious .png graphics. It requires only the most basic knowledge of HTML/CSS, which will probably be explained anyway.

Sidebar Plot Tip


Want to draw interest? Intrigue? Here’s a tip—

When writing your sidebar, do your best to be very specific. Being vague does not work in your favor, here. I’m not saying reveal all the gritty details of your main plot; but, just like the hook, line, and sinker of the opening sentence to a novel, this also must grab the attention of your reader. It’s absolutely vital. If you start off your book with,

Humans once resided in turmoil and stress, but now live in peace. No longer fighting amongst themselves, the world has flourished.

That doesn’t give very much information, does it? Not only do I not know what incidents happened beforehand to humanity as a whole, but what brought about this moment of tranquility. Why did they even fight amongst themselves in the first place? In essence, what’s happening in my mind reading through what I just wrote is a flurry of questions being raised and not in a good way. As opposed to me being curious, I’m instead frustrated by the lack of information and question this plot’s legitimacy. And by consequence I’m much more willing to turn away from it and scratch it off as unimportant. 

Why? Because the author has given no reason for me to be invested in their story. They haven’t made me care, they’re only telling me I should care. And there is a severe difference between showing and telling. Specificity is always in your favor.

A trick that might help is to pay attention to movie’s loglines. A logline is a one-sentence summary of an entire movie script, and is supposed to capture the interest of many in just one sentence. I once spent an entire day writing and re-writing a logline alone because I couldn’t afford to be vague. I had to summarize my entire concept in one-sentence in order to even begin to pitch it, and I had to entice those I wanted sold on the idea. Every word counts.

Inception has a great example of what I believe to be a successfully-written loglline. It’s,

A skilled extractor is offered a chance to regain his old life as payment for a task considered to be impossible.

See how specific it is? It’s not just any person, it’s an extractor. Furthermore you’re pulled in because not only are you left curious about this extractor’s past (What’s his old life he’s trying to regain? Why?), but you are also more importantly so, curious about the underlined “impossible task”. 

This is the sort of summary that draws interest, and raises the good sort of questions in the reader’s mind. Now they want to know more not because the condensed plot is confusing, but because their curiosity is piqued.

See where I’m going with this? Try it. It may help.
