I am perpetually stuck in this body. This body is me, with all the emotions and feelings included.
I often feel a guest to my own body. I observe and live with everything through this body I am hosting, although it came without a guide. I must try to find a definition of everything I experience. Feelings come and go as they please, and it is my job to find a place within me to put them all, and remain appropriate for the ones around me.
I can not safely say I will ever find myself in this simulation that is life, but that does not hold me back from trying.
This is me.
The game isn’t even released yet, neither have I ever played it yet.. However I’ve already got two characters :P
This time, a narcissistic Charr who’s got a light grudge against other Charrs.
To all RP’ers who’d like to try RP on Guild Wars 2. Or to all players of Guild Wars 2, that’d like to try RP:

So you’ve decided you want to be one of those weirdos who roleplay in Champions Online. But what is RP? How does RP work? Why do people RP? Is RP edible?
Well, I can’t really be assed to type an answer to any of this questions, but I can help you create a complex, interesting, imaginative character.
This is really the most brilliant piece of work relating RP on CO, made by a friend I met on CO, who sadly has stopped RP’ing.
People keep asking me how I got into RP, and when it was.
Well, truth to be told, I don’t quite know when it was, but it was about a year and a half ago, I think.
It all started with Danii (formerly known as Tekna), I made her on Champions Online, Not even knowing there was RP in the world, leave aside Champions Online.
Her first costume was some kind of robot, pink with white looks.. If I’d make the exact costume right now, I would probably kill myself.
I even was that retarded to capitalize the name (So it’d be TEKNA), which I really regretted later on.. I thought: “Robots have capitalized names? Right?”
So.. I arrived in Millennium City, after the tutorial.. I did the guide-thing quest, where you have to go to every spot in Renaissance Center, as I went past the club, I desided to wander in for a quick glance.
A girl named Shelan and a girl named Kaye started talking to me.. I was unaware that I was even RP’ing, (I guess..?)
After some time, they decided to go to Shelan’s moon hideout, so I tagged along.
There I made my first RP costume, a goth-like catgirl, with the cat ears, cat tail, but no skin pattern.. Yeah.. I really was blessed with originality, huh?
.. Even though I was completely unaware that this costume was to be used later on in RP.
We talked a little, light RP some might say.. And.. I guess my mind just subconciously made me develop a personality for Tekna.
I still was really bad in roleplaying, I do not know if I used smileys in the middle of my sentences, but I can safely say I emoted like this: haha dont do that lol
So, no caps, no proper punctuation, the use of ‘lol’, oh and emotes like this *snickers*
As I kept hanging out with Kaye, I noticed she capitalized the first letter of each sentence, and made the RP more dynamically looking.
I forced myself to change my style of RP, changing it into: “Don’t do that~” she laughed playfully.
I then joined a super group known as Ascendant Dawn.. Man what were they amazing, they taught me that people do not have floating names above their heads in RP, and they had big RP plots - lasting over a couple hours - each week.
Later, as I got more experienced with Roleplaying (About 300 hours in, now), the super group fell apart because everyone went off to different games.
I got forced to find new RP’ers, and then realised Tekna needs a severe rework, so I made Danii, and I started learning World of Darkness: Vampire the Masquerade (because with my second day in, I found out that both Shelan and Kaye were vampires.. Being the total noob I was, I wanted to be like them, and asked if one of them wanted to ‘embrace’ me)
And.. I’ll end it here, I feel like this is plenty of story.
Sadly though.. I do not know a good ending to it..
