Recommended Posts

So I got rejected with my app because my back story wasn't good enough that's OK because I saw that coming I've never done RP and wouldn't know how to make a background story like I mentioned so anyone got any advice for me to write up a better story maybe another RP server so I can get a feel to it or anything.

so a background story has to be a massive life story really not just 4 sentences but 10 paragraphs??

I did a short, 2 or so paragraph one and got rejected.

I did a longer, 6 or so paragraph one and got accepted.

The first one took me, lets say, half an hour to come up with it and write it.

The second, however, took me about 2 hours to come up with and write.

Practice makes perfect, patience is the key.

Remember to post your story in the RP thread to get an opinion on it before submitting, unless you're feeling reckless.

It has to be good enough to be believable that youre actually said character.

Mine was about 5 short paragraphs. Got accepted first shot.

I feel your pain. What I did was I opened up wordpad and prewrote my application fixing it up as I had new ideas so when the applications opened again I was ready to go.

In the meantime watch this guys series on this mod to pump you up!

Yeah the only other role playing ones youll fine are the Arma 2 mods such as Takistani Life. Other than that its worth the wait. My application only took 20 mins to write and Im an uneducated retard.

haha why not? Just tell someone whos good at writing a few things about your character and get them to write it out for you. I bet a little kid would come up with a pretty hilarious backstory.
