How To Role Play A Wolf

Role Play (RPG) is a type of game in which players assume the roles of characters and collaboratively create stories. Gameplay progresses according to a predetermined system of rules and guidelines, within which players may improvise freely. Players’ choices shape the direction and outcome of roleplaying games. A roleplaying game rarely has winners or losers. This makes roleplaying games fundamentally different from board games, card games, sports and most other types of games. Like novels or films, roleplaying games appeal because they engage the imagination. Roleplaying games are typically more collaborative and social than competitive. A typical roleplaying game unites its participants into a single team, known as a \\”party\\”, that plays as a group.

How To Introduce Your Wolf Into Role Play

Once you figure out your character’s details and back story it’s time to introduce him/her into the channel! There really is only one way to go about it and that’s to have your wolf find our territory. Typical posts can look like this:

RandomWolf: After traveling for many hours along a solitary path, he would find himself at the border of two large mountain’s that forged a mountain pass. He found the scent of other wolves and after traveling for so long without any sign of a wolf, this intrigued him. He’d been a lone wolf for many years and to stumble upon the scent of others, he would venture to investigate. He would follow after the tracks that led this wolf into another pack’s territory.

Introducing your character entering into the territory like this, this allows other wolves in the clearing or in the woods to discover your scent and be able to role play according to where you enter. This is far more desired then simply posting “RandomWolf: walks into the clearing and barks”.

After your character starts to interact with other wolves, you’ll want to make sure that you are greeted by at least a member of the pack to who can then introduce you to the Alpha(s) and/or Beta(s).
