Totally unbiased news and opinions.

Roleplay. Daily. is the go-to newspaper for everything concerning NS forum roleplay and forum drama. This paper publishes daily with pieces varying in detail and subject manner depending on the most pressing news of the day!

Organized and run by a dedicated team composed of Vanq, Banq, LL Bu, YB Bu, YB (better) Bu and 4th wall transcendent Bu, these 6 individuals ensure every edition of Roleplay. Daily. is a product of exceptional war journalism tempered in the pits of 2015 open II rp and close encounters with DOS from the mods.

Besides simply roleplay, Roleplay. Daily. also reports on forum drama, mostly concerning recent troll attacks on the site. 4th wall transcendent Bu ensures not a single zoomer troll or malicious adbot escapes the notice of Roleplay. Daily. Expect every daily edition to be different from the previous.

Already the paper has received a telegram of appreciation by a grateful OP and stuff like that really motivates the team here to persevere in producing TOS-adherent content.

P2TM News


1st Edition

Editor: Vanquaria
Writers: Vanquaria

1st Story of the Day: Castelia's Character App is accepted. A controversial decision by YB's OP that may possibly cause division within players involved in the roleplay due to the nature of which his app was accepted which is through this subforum news paper article. Expect an update on the unconventional methods utilized by YB's OP.

2nd Story of the Day: G-Tech's recently released Thoughtdeath 2019 roleplay has become a hit with roleplayers passionate about fight-centric roleplay. All submitted characters thus far have demonstrated a penchant for inflicting violence upon others. However, a problem has occurred. The roleplay requires at least 2 or so more characters for the IC to be put up. Will G-Tech find the PCs he needs in time or will his roleplay suffer a setback due to an underwhelming number of players?

3rd Story of the Day: The P2TM News staff will be conducting a detailed review of OOC threads, specifically the Original Posts and their extensions. First thread up for review will be...a secret.

4th Story of the Day: An interview with a veteran P2TM roleplayer coming soon! Who will the special individual be?

5th Story of the Day: This newspaper will also be conducting a thorough review of IC threads, specifically their content. First up for review will be...a secret.


Worst P2TM writer of the day: V A N Q U A R I A

Totally unbiased news and opinions.

Writer of the Day

Kylarnatia

Based writing. Incredibly vivid scenes will appear in your mind from reading their writing. At least they did for me. And Kylarnatia also responds to TGs! So if you need help with not godmodding other player's characters then maybe, you know




Thread of the Day

Klaus' War

Based war thread. A gripping civil war pits ideologies against ideologies, father against son, incredible. And I have rped with OP before, he is too nice for me.




Post of the Day

iLock

Based self-belief. Despite not being a mod, he spiritually locks the thread. Incredible...




IC of the Day

YB

I never expected YB to go past Eq's tag post much less have even a semblance of coherent writing in its IC. Extraordinary...




Story of the Day

Enough People!

Thoughtdeath 2019 by G-Tech has reached enough people to start IC! Praise Max Barry and Asigna. Truly tis a motivational story for all OPs out there from the heavens of P2TM to the depths of II to the even deeper depths of NS Sports.




Drama of the Day

Godmod?!

An incident of godmod occurred today! However, all parties involved made peace with each other and returned to taking a not!serious rp seriously.




Worst Writer of the Day

Iinterview of the Day

Banq: How you doing, Vanq? Mind if I have a quick chat with you regarding your latest rp, Young Baristas?

Vanq: Shut your mouth.

Secretary of State of the Confederation of Corrupt Dictators. Amateur roleplayer. Just a random person who wants to have fun and feel alive.

I don't do nation factbooks because I'm an ADD-addled, OCD-afflicted perfectionist who keeps editing content to the point I just delete the factbook afterwards.

Disclaimer: My nation does not, in any way, represent my real life views. Nor does my choice of region of residence. I also don't use NS stats (sometimes). NSGP in a nutshell.

Totally unbiased news and opinions.


Exposing The Elites - Episode 1

RPers must be able to differentiate between the terms, 'elite' and 'elitism'. The former describes a very good player and the other describes an ideology that advocates for the former to lead a community. And let's be completely honest with ourselves, are all RPers equal? I think there is equity in that anyone can make their own rp and do whatever the OP in the next thread can do but that doesn't mean all RPers are equal in regards to skill and experience. This series 'exposes' the really good players in NationStates with no particular reason other than the fact I need content for this newspaper. And perhaps, newbies can take note of their works.

Exposing Ghant

Everytime I do my routine surf of NS before logging off, there are a number of subforums I refuse to even look at and II is one of them. However, if I see particular player's names pop up then I will read and this player is one of them (Yeah, Im a hypocrite lmfao idgaf).

Their writing displays an exceptional eye for immersive dialogue, something which I think many beginner RPers struggle with. His dialogue drives the story and readers that pay attention to the dialogue will understand much more than just the action scenes that follow afterward; the relationship between characters and even their backstories, all can be inferred from the dialogue. I want this for my serious RPs (Young Baristas is not serious?!) and I think my exclusion of 'personality' in character apps for Dynasties can be justified by the fact that a character's personality can be depicted in the writing itself and not just a pre-prepared examination of your character.

Also, as seen in many works of popular literature, a character's personality is often subject to change so what is the point of having personality in a character app? Not that I think having personality in a character app is a bad thing, I'd just like to see more serious, character-driven rps exclude personality in char apps. Another example would be G-Tech's Thoughtdeath rp whose apps include background but not personality.

And sometimes, RPers tend to not be strict enough to accurately depict the personality that they wrote in their apps and the portrayed personality of their character in the IC lol, anyone ever noticed that?

And like Kylarnatia, they utilize all facets of imagery to create a vivid scene for their audience. Looks like imagery is becoming a common theme here with good players, I wonder why?

Now, since I am inherently too lazy to praise anyone but myself, I will just leave a link to this post of theirs and let you read their work for yourself. Did you honestly expect me to do an indepth review? Lol




Analysis of Trolls - Episode 1

Image

Categorization of Troll: Zoomer Troll
Ability to Reason: Very small to nonexistent
Method of Stopping: Report to mods


Responding to Trolls

I've realized that nearly everyone knows you shouldn't respond to a forum troll. So, why then do players never cease in responding to trolls? There can only be one explanation for this phenomena...POST COUNT.

Nah, there are much more than just one reason for a player responding to a troll. In fact, each situation operates on a case-by-case analysis instead of a broad, general explanation for why players respond to a troll. Someone may have had a bad day, someone may have had their favorite politician lose, someone may be triggered more easily than others, etc.

That is why, no matter how many types you tell people not to respond to trolls, there is a good chance at least one (excluding mods) will respond. So, what can we take away from this?

If you want to be a forum troll, go for it!

Writer of the Day

The Selkie

This player frequents the Nationstates forum and is a highly experienced social roleplayer. I recall I even rped with them a few years ago for a romance rp (Yes, I did a romance rp) and I am pleased to see that their experience is helping make the NS forum a better place for social roleplay.




Thread of the Day

Breaching the Fog

Crime fiction roleplays have a tendency to be much more mature in theme than other roleplays and this OOC does not deviate from tradition. An intriguing supernatural premise that is incredibly well-written. I highly encourage mature writers to take a look.




Post of the Day

Voluntary Self-Unconscious

A creative way to describe sleeping. Incredible...




IC of the Day

Cancerous Potato

Incredible...Forum 7 is the true bastion of casual roleplay




Story of the Day

Moderator Retires

There's never been a better time to troll. Jks, Kyrusia is the one we need to look out for, never had any encounter with USS Monitor but judging from all the character references, Monitor is a nice player. Anyways, here is a nice quote to end this report

Gandoor wrote:I mean I'm pretty sure USS Monitor had previously been Nazi Flower Power, who joined in like 2010 (and I'm also reasonably sure that wasn't even her first account), although it's kind of obvious why she wouldn't use that account as the mod one.

Regardless, enjoy your retirement from your duties Monitor.


HAHAHAHAHAHA INCREDIBLE HAHAHAHAHA NAZI FLOWER POWER HAHAHAHAHA




Drama of the Day

Condemnation of The New Inquisition

Some Gameplay stuff, always gotta be drama there right?




Worst Writer of the Day

This player is human trash...wait




Interview of the Day
