    Any tips on huminoid RP I could use? Im used to roleplaying animals, thats why I chose the race I did, but as beastly as Satsujin is, he still walks and talks like a huminoid :P

    I can give you a few of my opinions, if you like.

    Humanoids have definite personalities just like ordinary humans. They have likes, dislikes, and quirks in their speech and body language. Animals do this too, in all honesty; if you own a pet then you'll know what I mean.

    So, in order to make your character's personality more revealing, you can do it in ways other than telling people what they are thinking. You can describe the manner in which your character walks - he can strut and swagger, indicating arrogance; he can glide and stalk around shiftily; he can even mope, indicating sadness or depression. The possibilities are almost endless, but they rely heavily on the description of his body language.

    Likewise, speech says a lot about a human character. Country-Western people will use particular words with particular accents, such as "folks, 'fellers' (as opposed to 'fellows'), me'self, etc. A lot of this can be accomplished with a simple apostrophe, linking words where you find them to be appropriate. While this doesn't necessarily convey emotion or motive, it makes your character unique and realistic, enhancing the 'texture' and feeling of your posts.

    Another thing that I found people doing on my old site was making their characters seem emotionless. This makes them really alien and strange, not at all like a human. Humans tend to infer their emotions in one way or another; don't be afraid to let other players see that. It'll make your character a lot more interesting to watch as you see their mentality develop rather than have it explained to you.

    That's just my view on it, and I'm not sure how clear I was, so I apologize in advance. I hope this helps.

    Usually the creator of the thread has a vague idea of the direction he/she wishes the thread to go. I have no idea what you'd like to do with it, so if you could give me a hint, it'd be appreciated. :D

    Oh, duh, I get it. Took me a minute. Lol. He wants us to add a link to our character profiles in a post; that way he can prepare for the fight.

    I'd be only too happy to provide you with the information that will aid you in my destruction. Here's the link: http://www.thestarwarsrp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=30295

    lol 's not really for destructive purposes, I just didn't know who you guys were is all, trying to jog my memory. Some people start out with retardedly jacked profiles in terms of being OP, but you guys seem to be fine.

    I don't know why on coruscant in an upper level premier bar/casino jedi would be unwelcomed, especially when there's an assassin droid with a repeating blaster issuing threats. More than anything, you'd be the one looked at as a threat because you're threatening a jedi Earl.

    Edit: Also, posting order for the fight can go Droid guy (can't remember his name) Me, Earl, Sats basically, right?
