HeySo I've been interested in doing some RP for one of my toons - I am an RP noob so, starting small. However, just wondering if there are any sites you can direct me to for "How to RP" - I don't know the "do's and "dont's" of it so, it would be nice to see what I'd be getting myself into.'Nother small but pressing question I have is; how does raiding/PvP work with RP? It seem's like it'd be difficult and more a nuisance than anything to try and integrate RP'ing into said environments. Anyone have any insight on this? Thanks,

Actually, the early All the World's a Stage articles cover this quite well. There's also the "so you want to be a" series, which is helpful for your particular race/class/profession combination. And, though I don't remember the link off the top of my head, there was a separate blog that was quite good at helping with roleplaying.Another resource would be the WoW Roleplaying forums, which have some excellent FAQs (though some of them are a tad out of date). And, of course, there's the WoWWiki pages on roleplaying, which even includes roleplaying information on the various servers, making it easier to find roleplaying guilds (if that's your thing).Personally, I prefer to just load up the MyRoleplay addon, turn off the public channels, then start walking around, interacting with things as I go. Just inserting a bit of roleplaying in your everyday activities is usually all you need to do to find like-minded, or at least easily amused, people.

Oh, yes. As for raiding or PVP for RP, it depends. Most people tend to turn off roleplaying for dungeons and raids, and for PVP events. However, world PVP can be roleplayed quite well, even though you do have to use the existing Blizzard emotes to communicate with the other side.
