    Default How does RPing in MMORPGs look like?

    Hello, i'm a new player to Rift but by no means a new player to the MMORPG genre. I recently picked up Rift after quiting the game once during the tutorial and realized how fun the game was after the tutorial (ha go figure).

    I noticed that this game was rife with lore and noticed the RP servers. Now I've seen RP servers before but I was never really sure what that meant. How exactly do you RP in a MMORPG?

    Hopefully this doesn't sound like a stupid question but I find it hard to grasp how exactly RPing works out when you factor in multiple people's stories, the games lore, the games natural restrictions such as quests, rewards, level restrictions, etc.

    Can anyone clarify? If it's interesting I would love to join the RP community.

    AAAAAND I feel like an idiot after finding a stickied thread about this topic, feel free to close this thread.

    EDIT: On second thought can anyone help me get integrated into this and try out this RP thing?

    I haven't decided on a shard since I have no idea which rp shard is the most active or best choice for a newbie like me :P

    Are you in EU or NA servers? I think (last I knew, but they could have changed it) that the only option on the NA side is Faeblight, where I'm at. Come join us there, it's a nice server!

    Come on over to Faeblight. We've got the wackiest, happily misfit people. Really- all sorts of people. It's a good shard and it's home to us!

    Oh, you're right I never realized there was one RP shard in NA. Okay, I'll join Fae but how exactly do I get going? Do I create a character bio and post it somewhere? Join a guild somehow? I'm kind of new to Rift as well as RP servers (my highest on a diff server is lvl 16) so it might take some time for me to adjust :P

    Also does it matter if I join Defiants or Guardians? Because it seems to me the faction would limit interaction with certain groups a bit.

    One excellent resource is faeblightuntied.com. You can join this site and see a guild listing of many rp guilds, as well as viewing other people's stories for their characters, ask questions and meet people in the shard, etc. Hope to see you soon!
