The current state of RP on Jabbit [EU]:
Exiles currently have a number of circles, and almost daily events and plenty of active members.
Dominion has at least one weekly bar event, I am currently unsure of numbers, and would like to be nudged about how it is looking currently.
There are always improvements that can be made to RP, so if you have any ideas you’d like to put forward for new events, or would like help with organizing events yourselves, please let people know. We cannot make things better and more welcoming without your help.
If you have an idea for an event, feel free to run it by people. Make a thread, throw it up on the calendar.
My only other point for people with event ideas: Consider how what you are doing fits in with the world, and what's currently missing in the community. We have little market/merchant or exile military based stuff.
We have characters linked to them, but no circles, guilds or events that I know of yet. Please also use wildstar-roleplay.com to announce your circles or events, so that people have one point to go to for information.
Now, for people who want to RP but aren’t really in to making events. I have major tips that I give to everyone:
Create random RP.
There is a directory of public housing here.
This can happen literally anywhere. Many bars have automated bots that can serve drinks. You don’t need an event to go to one. All you need to do is say “I am going to RP in [location], feel free to join me!” in the LFRP channel.
The Open world has areas that would make good locations for random RP. Try using Thermock Hold, Sylvan Glade and Gallow, for examples from Exile side. Perhaps someone else can give ideas from Dominion.
Do not fear the trolls
The main fear people have (according to my observation) of open world RP is trolls. But don’t forget. If they’re bad, you have an ignore list, use it. If they’re being especially bad, report them. “Verbal” abuse of any kind is an offense. Harassment is an offense. People jumping around you spamming skills can fall under that. Just don’t abuse the report system.
Don't forget: RP is an activity in any MMO as valid as any other. You have every right to use the world without being harassed.
