Hello From the Otter Slide

Hello... It's me...

Image

● Have you roleplayed before? If so, where? If you have, how long have you been roleplaying for?

Yes I have. I've only ever played consistently on one other site, Miz, and in total, over many characters and two IP addresses (the first of which was perma banned for no real reason), I was active there for four years. For the most part I was luckily enough to avoid any direct drama, except for the one instance which resulted in me being banned. You would think that by avoiding said drama it would be happy days for me. Unfortunately that wasn't so. For the past year and a bit I'd been determined to keep my head down and stay out of the drama, but that meant watching as my friends and players that I'd come to love and respect were treated badly and driven away. That hurts to watch, and I felt like an ass for doing and saying nothing. I was taught as a kid to stand up to what I think is wrong, but unfortunately standing up to what's wrong in Mis is like screaming into a black hole, it doesn't work well.

So, I've had enough, and here I am, and I'm very glad to say that after a mere couple of days on this site, I like what I see. A lot. Maybe it's just because I'm used to either rude and inconsiderate mods and mods too cowed to stand up to bullies, but I already want to smack big hugs and kisses on every single one of you. I feel so incredibly excited to be a part of this community, and I want to thank you all for your time and your work!

● Do you have any nicknames you go by? Is there a name you prefer people to call you?

You can call me Rho, my RL nickname, or you can stick with Kala :) Her Majesty Awesome Sauce works too.

● What are some of your most favorite characters you've made? They can be from MMORPGs, Video Games, etc.

Tanith Sitai, my poor, now abandoned, bab *wipes away tears* Her permanent bitchface and rich-bitch ways will be forever cherished and missed. Besides her, my little sugar plum Graham Whipmane was a stand out too. Kala will rival them both in awesomeness though, so help me!

● Is there anything you're excited about when it comes to the Standing Trials RP? Anything that you're concerned with?

I'm excited by everything, to be honest. The sites lovely, concise and so well laid out, the lore is interesting, the races are fascinating, the staff lovely and the players cooperative and supportive. Not to mention, everyone is so amazing and talented, be it in writing, the gorgeous boxes and coding I've seen, or simply all the great developmental ideas and plotting.

● Do you consider yourself skilled in something (Art for example), if so, what is it? Do you have a favorite hobby besides RPing?

I do quite like art actually, and I did offer some of my limited skills in art, coding and photo editing on Miz. Should anyone be interested, I'd be happy to do the same here. Don't overestimate my talents though, I've already seen some codes of gloriousness that far outmatch my own. Not to mention the coding here is a little different to what I'm used to.

I also love animals. All animals. At home, I have a menagerie of dogs, a cat, lizards, snakes and a little Gecko. It's a daily battle not to come home with more and more pets and strays, and I end up making little animal friends all over the place. Basically, I'm a modern day Disney princess.

● What is something unique about you?

Nooopppeee. I'm your usual old Joe.

*blows kisses*

Hello From the Otter Slide

Hey there Kala!

Let me be the first to formally welcome you to Standing Trials! We're all definitely excited to have you here. I'm sorry about your previous experiences. It takes a lot of strength and courage to stand up for something, be it an opinion, defending someone or something, or just admitting that things need to change. Our experiences are what helps us grow as individuals and teaches us important lessons that will stay with us permanently. But I say this not for you to hold onto the past with bitter memories, if that's the case. I'm sure that you made some wonderful friends there and roleplayed some fantastic stories! But I don't want what happened to change the kind of person you are. Because I'm like that. I can't stand someone being belittled, harassed, abused, or treated unfairly. It's how I was raised and people are amazed at the kind of person I am and I take pride in that. I hope you take pride in who you are too.

Standing Trials was set up with a mind to roleplay fantastic stories, but it was also set up as a safe haven of sorts. People need a place to come to relax with others who share common interests. But they also need a place to have fun, connect, make friends, and grow in a positive way. Each and every day the staff sets out to make sure this is the case. That people are coming into an environment that is welcoming, that's friendly, that we as staff are handling things in a professional and timely manner, that we are talking to our player base and keeping them informed, and that we are handling drama in a discreet, quick manner. We do this because this is what we wanted as players.

There are a lot of things that will be unfolding as the overall roleplay of Standing Trials progresses. You have the opportunity to go far with your character with limited red tape. As long as you keep us updated, post permissions in the Narrator Support Forum, and follow the rules, your character can go just about anywhere. We've designed the world with just enough information for you to write with, but we encourage you to make your own creations and place a mark within the world. This can be describing certain flora or fauna, making a new poison or medicine, or designing a location. There is so much for you to do, it really is very exciting!

Like I said, we're very excited to have you here with us and I hope that you stick around for a while. If you have any questions or concerns, you can always ask one of the Prophets or post it up in the Q&A Forum. Seriously, have fun roleplaying and make some friends. It's what we're here for after all. :)

Welcome to Standing Trials, Rho!

So excited to have you with us and it looks like you're already establishing yourself in Rynmere as a character which is really fun and exciting for me to see! I'm glad you're inspired by the world we have been able to create so far and can promise many more wonderful things to come! At the moment a lot of us are really focused on development and fleshing the world out as much as possible so relying on players to make their own fun a little bit, but if you need anything or have any questions feel free to ask!

Hello From the Otter Slide

Drools all over everyone's box codes. I want one Jade, I demand you make me one.

I never know what to say when welcoming people to the site. So I'll just go with... Don't spend so much time worrying about stepping on peoples toes. You'll spend so much time looking down you'll miss all the fun. Don't be afraid to hop on in and join us, especially in chat, shenanigans abound in that place. Questions are always welcome, just don't ask me cause I know nothing :D. Otherwise, catch you around.

Oh almost forgot! I hear by dub you "Otter". That's what you get for the horrible pun.

See ya around

Hello From the Otter Slide

Thanks guys, I appreciate the kind words!

And Zenith, don't expect me to complain about being nicknamed Otter! Those guys are damn cute! It's practically a compliment!
