Roleplay Stance

This field cannot be toggled, but you can choose one of the following options:

PROFILE /SET ROLEPLAY <#>

1. HEAVY - This setting will indicate that you wish to remain in an environment that is as immersive as possible and you would prefer that even veiled references to things outside of the game's environment and setting or openly discussing things such as mechanics be avoided. This is for people with a strong grasp of the game's lore and setting and for which remaining in-character and actively pursuing events and roleplaying opportunities with others is a top priority.

2. MEDIUM - This setting will indicate that you enjoy roleplaying most of the time and that it is a regular consideration in your interaction with others. This is appropriate for people who guide their interactions with others according to their character's personality, actively pursue in events and participate in roleplaying with others, but still feel comfortable talking about mechanics and ranks or making veiled references to things outside of the game, such as the boards, lag, or IM clients.

3. LIGHT - This setting indicates that you enjoy casual roleplay but do not specifically set out to do so. This is ideal for people willing to interact with others in an in-character fashion and who enjoy socializing from time to time, but whom for participation in events and pursuing roleplay with others is a relatively low priority. This setting is also appropriate for new players who are interested in roleplay but are not familiar with the environment and the game's setting and are unsure of where they currently fit in.

4. NONE (Not Really My Thing) - This setting indicates that you do not actively engage in roleplay nor do you wish for others to attempt to roleplay with you. Note that even those with this flag must respect the game environment and attempt to remain in-genre and avoid discussing blatantly out of character references within the game. This setting is appropriate for people who consider themselves casual gamers who just want to log on and play the game, or who are only interested in training and advancement with little to no in-character socialization.


PvP Stance

This field cannot be toggled, but you can choose one of the following options:

PROFILE /SET PVP <#>

1. OPEN - This setting indicates that you welcome any conflict with any person at any time. This is a dangerous setting and should not be chosen lightly, as it will leave you open to random attacks without any recourse available from a GM. Basically, if you have this set, you are on your own when it comes to PVP and you accept that completely.

2. GUARDED - This setting indicates that you are open to PVP conflicts, provided you're aware they're coming. This option is good for people who enjoy PVP and enjoy "GM-less" conflict, as long as all parties involved are consenting and have agreed beforehand what's going to happen.

3. CLOSED - This setting indicates that you prefer to do everything you can to avoid PVP. Please note that this setting does not PROTECT you from PVP, it merely states that you're not generally interested in participating. If you choose to do things that cause bad feelings or ill will, however, you may get involved in PVP whether you like it or not.

Note that there are multiple systems that can force PvP Open status, for varying amounts of time: Gwethsmashing, stealing from PCs, using a tiny glass orb, being successfully accused of necromancy, or manually by a GM. When forced PvP Open, your timer (e.g., 4 hours) represents real-life time, and you do not need to be logged in for it to count down.


IM

You must enter your service, type your screen name, and toggle this field on.

PROFILE /SET IM <IM SERVICE> <SCREENNAME>


URL

You can include a personal URL in your profile. These URLs must be relevant to DragonRealms. This field is usually used to display character and group Web sites.

Some URLs, such as elanthipedia.org, are automatically approved. If your site is not on the default list, you will have to wait until DragonRealms staff approves it.

You must specify a URL and toggle this field on.

PROFILE /SET URL <WEB SITE (WITHOUT THE HTTP://)>


Quote

You can have a quote of up to 982 characters. Your quotation is subject to policy. Failure to abide by policy may result in a warning and having no further access to your profile.
