Recommended Posts

Welcome to Unknown Shores! 

Before you can access the rest of the community you need to post an introduction. 

This is our introduction template. You can make your answers as long as you want them to. Have fun, and we hope to see you within our community!

 

First and foremost; tell us about yourself, as a roleplayer/gamer:
(This can be anything. We like to get a feel for those that will be integrating themselves into our community.)

How did you find us? Did anything in particular draw you to the community?

As we are a roleplaying community, what kinds of role-play do you enjoy?
(Some enjoy relaxing tavern roleplay. Others enjoy fighting, action and danger. Some in crowds, some in pairs. What appeals to you the most?)

What sorts of games do you generally play?  Tell us a few of your favourites!

What are your expectations of this community?

Out of all of our rules and regulations listed on our community, which appeals to you the most?
(Feel free to review our rules listed here.)

Show off some of your role-play skills with a story, if you'd like!
(This is not required, but it may help you get your RP gears rolling with this community!)

Is there anything else you would like to add, ask, or otherwise clarify?
(This can be anything. Questions/Comments are always welcome.)

 

A few tips for writing your introduction! 

Detail

A good introduction is detailed and gives us an impression of who you are. Whether you’re the mysterious type or a gregarious, outgoing individual, there’s a good chance that if you’re here, you share our passion for roleplaying. We love to hear about what kinds of settings our newcomers enjoy, which races they prefer to portray, and what drew them to Warcraft.

Spelling and Grammar

We aren’t overly strict with spelling and grammar, but we appreciate applicants taking the time to carefully go over their answers and making them as error-free as possible. The occasional typo or misspelt word is fine, and we have many extraordinary writers whose first language is not English, so don’t feel too pressured.

Attitude

Unknown Shores is a tightly-knit community and we actively promote respect and civility. If you show a positive, friendly attitude in your introduction you immediately define yourself as an approachable person and open up avenues to role-play right away. You can’t go wrong if you remain respectful at all times.

Story-Writing Pointers

You might not think it, but the stories people write are highly indicative of what kind of person they are. Writers can reveal a lot about their inner nature without ever typing the words ‘I’ or ‘Me’. The setting of your story need not even be related to Warcraft. It can be a work of complete fiction, or a detailed account of a factual event. It could be a monologue of your thoughts when you joined the server and wrote out your introduction, or the antics of one of your characters.

A few little helpful bits for new people! In game, if you type /join LFRP into the chat box, you'll join an OPTIONAL channel to help you find people who are Rpin' if they are willing to hand-wave a little logic so you can more easily find people. Keep in mind this is OPTIONAL for them to provide said information. As it is borderline meta-gaming.

 

We also have on in our discord where you can set things up! Don't be shy, the server isn't dead, just a tad spread out right now.
