  1. Hello! So, I'm one of those horrible people who joined about two years back, only to slip very early on into lurker status when the roleplay I was briefly in died off. Instead of doing the intelligent thing by keeping my muse up with another roleplay, I'd fallen into a dastardly "picky phase" and suffice to say, had issues digging myself out! Now here I am after all this time, late to the party and doing what I should have from the get-go. >:L To be fair, I was still poking around here off and on occasionally and saw the changes Iwaku went through. For a while there, my oh~so~simple mind found itself very intimidated! But now the set-up is once again way more familiar and easy enough to navigate.

    Nonsense aside, my resume is filled out for the most part so you can get the basics of what I'm interested in listed there. Because I've always seen myself as a team player, I like OOC chats just as much as IC ones. Getting familiar with my partners is always a perk and the last thing I wanna do is make someone bored out of their mind. I've become more of a fandom kinda guy in my recent years, but I've always liked the creativity linked to original plots and characters. I do both, but I'm slightly more picky with mixing the two (CCxOC kinda stuff). I'll write just about anywhere that isn't a chat room/instant messenger.

    ....One day I'll have to sit down and make a list of all these things so I can actually search for people instead of hoping someone will just spring out and spam my conversations. :L

    Annnd now I'll start talking a bit more about me as an actual person, because contrary to popular belief, I am not an inanimate object even if this profile has been sitting here acting like one. Forewarning, we might end up with a room full of crickets.

    If you don't feel like sticking to my username or even shortening it for that matter, my real one is Ren so that works all the same! I'm 23 years old, and to spare hundreds of innocent lives from what is guaranteed to be monstrous fits of road rage, I've decided to go this long without a license. That means I get to be the lazy ass who hitches rides from the unlucky folks I know, go me~ I started writing pretty early on, so I have roughly 12? Years of on-and-off experience, but I've still got truckloads of spare room to learn new things so there's always that to look forward to. I can ramble. Like, a lot. If you get me started on a topic I like? Ho-boy. I enjoy fiddling around with making edits in Photoshop, though so far I'm a failure when it comes to drawing my own digital art from scratch. I read a LOT of fandom-oriented content in my spare time, there's the occasional gaming sessions, and anime is a thing; subs, dubs, whatever works. I have a major case of OCD, and it likes to pop up all the time at random intervals in my life to wave hello and ruin my concentration. Running is nice, swimming is fun, and now I've exhausted all the noteworthy things about myself I never normally talk about.

    What the hell. Here, have some useless, incoherent paragraphs. 83
  2. Well, I guess I say two words. Welcome back.
  3. Yes, thank you! I have hopes of actually staying this time, and am in good need of a kick to the shin for leaving in the first place. Oi.

  4. Welcome back then, totally not new person. >:3
  5. Welcome back not-newbie! ^-^
  6. Ah! This totally-not-a-newbie sends his thanks to you both! c:
  7. Hey, Castus! Glad to see you back after two years. I probably didn't meet you back then, but I'm still glad to see your return.

    You should like, message me in PM and we should chat until I get my RP search updated. I DO warn that it's all going to be original and zero fandom. >3> You seem like a cool person. *ugly winks*
  8. Hello, @Casthus and welcome back to the site ^.^ Things may have changed while you were away so if you haven't already go ahead and give the rules a once over, and if something on the site stumps you, we also have a nifty Help section ^.^ This is where you'll find the FAQ, and within the FAQ a list of Roleplay Tags, a list of the site's bbcodes, a link to the staff roster, and other insightful things. But if you can't find an answer to your question, need clarification, or found a bug, the Help Desk might be more your cup of tea.

    As a roleplayer, new or otherwise, you're always looking for ways to improve your craft and one of Iwaku's many goals is to help you with this :D Thus the Content page! Here you'll find forums dedicated to Roleplay Guides and places for users to commission and display their own works ^.^ But if you're more worried about actually roleplaying or need a place to start, we have the Roleplay Search page :) This is where you'll find Interest Checking and Creation where Game Masters posts interests check for their future roleplays and plot future roleplays. Roleplay Advertisement is where Game Masters advertise their running group, dice, or jump-in roleplays. But if you're a Game Master looking for players, there's always the Seeking Group Invites forum. This will allow you to browse users looking for group roleplays to join and snag them up for yourself! Last but not least is the Seeking One x One partners. If group roleplays are too main stream for you, set up shop here and look for someone of similar interests ^.^

    If you're wondering who I am, I am but only one of Iwaku's many staff members :D As the banner says, I'm part of the Community Maintenance branch and my job is to make sure all roleplays have their correct tags and prefixes, archive dead threads, and fix whatever you break :3 Other branches of Staff include the Security team, the users who make sure you aren't up to anything questionable, and the Content team, the users who make sure you're never bored!

    I hope to see you around the forums and may the muse be with you =^.^=

  9. @The Mood is Write Thanks! I don't believe we met before, naw. Who needs to worry so much about the past, though? We've met now. P:

    Chatting? I can do thaaat~ I like words, and ones I've never heard of are a big bonus. I'll shoot something your way! Oh, and original works are still good, they're what initially got me into roleplaying. As fandom-loving as I am these days, we all have to give credit where it's due I'd say.

    Ooo, does my level of cool come with a scale from 1-10? ...I'm only a 3, aren't I? Rats! :c

    @Noctis the Devious Whoa, thanks for all the directions! I already checked the rules over again before I threw up this thread just to be sure, and I think I've more or less found my way to everywhere I need to be. That's still a handy list to have though, I'll try to give you less work to worry over by not breaking anything.

    ..Ah, but I'm often told that things are always my fault, even when they're not.

    Such good friends I have off-site, yes yes. (=^‥^=)
