Beginners Guide to Roleplaying
First of all, roleplaying means that you get to pretend to be the wrestler you have chosen. Say for example you choose John Cena as your wrestler. Your first objective before even being accepted into MEFW is to write a sample roleplay. Well imagine the roleplay as this. Say your character, in this case John Cena, is brought into the MEFW studios for a tryout. They stick him in the backstage area, in front of a set. The camera turns on, and it is John Cena's time to talk. He needs to introduce himself and talk about his goals and objectives in the future. He needs to say why he should be hired, and his thoughts on the rest of the roster. However there is so much more to it than just this. When you are writing this roleplay, you need to write down everything thats happening around you. If you want to be good at roleplaying, you cant just write what John Cena is going to say. You need to set the scene, describe the setting, the time, the place and everything that is going on. This gives the reader a mental picture of what is happening. You also want to avoid cliches, such as I am going to win the title or I am the best ever. You can use these, but be creative about it.
Although roleplays are based on quality and not length, as a beginner you should work on pushing yourself to make them longer and longer each time. A good way to push yourself into getting longer roleplays is to read what others are doing. Adapt their style and change it to make it your own. Now I don't mean steal their work, what I mean is to see how they set up their roleplay, the ideas and situations they use, and then incorporate them into your style.
A good idea is to have a good presentation for your roleplay. A roleplay that is visually attractive makes for a much better read than one long block of text. There are a few ways to do this. The message board MEFW uses offers color text, bold and italic, different fonts and the ability to add images. You can utilize these to make a nice looking roleplay. Another alternative is to use layouts that either you yourself create, or that others have made. One good site for a roleplay layout is http://www.pibmacdesignz.vze.com/. If you do use a layout keep in mind you need to upload it to your own webspace and provide a link on the message board to that page.
Here are some examples of roleplays. One is by MEFW Hall of Famer Chris Kanyon did for another e-fed and the other is one I did using Christopher Daniels in a fed called WWC Revolution.
The best way to be a good roleplayer is to constantly work at it. Make sure you use good grammar and spell check. Also don't be afraid to ask for feedback. Most people are willing to help. Lastly, be able to take a little constructive criticism, its the only way to improve.
