Role-play consists of two pillars:: Muse and Desire. (Advice from a HOS Member)
Role-play consists of two pillars:: Muse and Desire.
Muse means the passion and creative fire for a project or character.
It's the muse that built the House of Solomon, it's Muse that brought
you all Lord Satan. Muse is very important because it's the energy that
builds and brings out ideas of you. It's your idea engine and your
machine that makes you want to write and create.
Muse is a passion for creative thinking.
Desire is the will and wanting need to be here. It's a desire to keep
coming back and write for the character your muse created. Without
desire, there is no passion. Without muse, there's no desire. Both are
needed and both cannot survive without the other. If you don't like how
your role-play is going, then change it up. Don't sit there and cry
about nobody wanting you or nobody wanting to play with you.
That's just there to get attention and it's only a quick fix and not the
problem to the solution. Change your page. Even pre-made characters
can be changed a little. Keep the name, obviously, it's the name that's
important. People could care less about your look or backstory on a
pre-made page. If you aren't passionate about it, then you shouldn't be
playing that character.
You won't know how many times I've had a dead page that I've changed
around and bam, it's insanely popular and people want to write on it.
All it takes is a look change, background change, we don't all have to
be demons, you could be an alien and still be Vandella's daughter, or
human, a fallen Angel, whatever you can come up creatively, you can
change it on your page. It doesn't take a lot to do so.
If you are tired of always having sex, make a status about the fact that
you will become more selective on your partners, or if you need an
Erotic Story, then make a post about that. People can only accept your
changes or hear you about your wants and needs if you don't make any
attempts to call them out on it. If you make no posts stating what you
want out of role-play, people aren't going to know what you want.
Never wait for people to message you, if you are the type of person that
needs to see them on-line their light on, to message and reply, you'll
never get anything done. Always, always, always, send your replies
regardless if they are active or not. In most cases, the first thing
people do when they sign on is answer everyone right away. That means,
getting to your message.
Don't send retarded, lame greetings. It doesn't matter how you jazz it
up, people don't care. Greetings are greetings and they get ignored. If
it's not a legit starter, people won't answer. If you noticed, how I
talk to and interact with people on is a mini-starter/greeting. People
can claim they hate that hey how are you b.s. but I've gotten a lot of
mileage out of that and off pages who claim they hate that type of
Take the time to message people, it's a two-way street, but you can't
rely on that. You have to take the initiative to send stuff people can
reply too, otherwise, you'll just sit there making whiny stats about
wanting attention from people.
Add people yourself. Chances of people adding you, unless it's the same
group of men are slim to none, I physically go and hunt and request
everyone I can. You'll be surprised at how many people accept you, and
again, you can't expect people to message you. No one really has an idea
for role-play here, people go literacy is sexy, but you don't know how
many times I come across those idiots and they are like, I got
nothing.. it's a muse and a process.
You can't expect everyone to talk all the time to you. I frankly talk to
half the people on my friend's list.
Put your light on as active, believe it or not, some people need to see
that light on in order to reply. I think it's stupid, especially when
they can just check the date you logged in off your page and know you
were around that day, but again, some people just need that
self-assurance that you are active and around.
Mobile doesn't matter. It doesn't matter the length of replies you give
because half the guys here don't care and only want sex anyways. Don't
care about standards, or be snobby or picky about it and you'll get a
lot more replies. I don't care about my standards and I have millions of
Be active and responsive. If you are just going to reply to 1 or 2
people, then don't add a bunch of people. Make sure you let them know
that hey, I am only interested in writing with so and so because it
pisses people off if they feel like they're being ignored and word of
mouth spreads. If you aren't going to reply to them, there's no reason
to keep them on your page. I like a big friend's list, so it doesn't
bother me as much as it bothers others, but again if you put out those
types of vibes, then you'll never get anything.
Write your own stuff. People gravitate to people who can write. If they
see you making posts, even small paragraphs of posts, people generally
come to you with ideas. We're adults and have adult brains, surely you
can think of something to post about you or your character? It
shouldn't be that hard.
Patience. This game is like fishing. You can't just jump in and hope to
catch a lot of fish. You have to find something that works and works
for you and then toss out the bait and wait. Sometimes, you'll be
waiting a long time before you get that prize fish to post on your
wall. I practice patience, but I am a man and I am not perfect, and
sometimes my patience doesn't last and this game is an irksome game. I
try not to play favorites and respond to everyone because I know the
feeling it brings being on both ends of the spectrum. But, I say again.
People sometimes come on just to talk or hang out and see what's going
on. Or they sign on automatically whenever their browser turns on and
aren't even aware they are on-line when all they want to do is watch
Netflix. You can't be all delete happy if there are no friends to talk
and write with, you're going to be alone a lot. Change the way you
think, keep it positive, people don't want to play with a negative
They like escaping into this fantasy world and removing themselves from
the problems of their life and when they come across negative thinking
or emotions, they tend to stay away from that. Try not to be so emo
about things, even if you don't make stats, people pick up on those
Remember, if things don't work out the way you want them to, change the
way you think, change the way you play the game, and just change the
way you have your page and character. Role-play is about being
proactive and not reactive. If all you're going to do is sit there and
wait for individuals to come to you, you'll be waiting a long time. Be
active, be responsive and be prepared to evolve and change your
character and page.
And remember this, role-play is a process of change. If you want better
results of your pages, change it up every now and then. Sometimes,
change is a good thing, and you'll never know the result unless you try.
