Introduction
Hohoho... what's that? What do we have here? A little... what's the thing they call the likes of you... mon'keigh? Monkey? Mon'keigh monkeys? Aaaaaah, come on pal, who cares what they call you, it's completely unimportant, unnecessary, superfluous, uncalled, uninteresting, boooooooooooring.

What? Who am I?
Oh well, that's actually a good and a very stupid question to ask. But, no, seriously, giving you the correct answer will probably make your head explode in a sprout of candies and IRS tax forms, you know?
Yeah, yeah, perhaps I'm exaggerating things... perhaps I'm not... who knows because sure as shit I don't.
...
Yeah, I know some of you tend to call me complicated, many of you would call me "late" or something like that... so let me start over, will ya?


My name's is Cegorach, and I'm the (supposed) laughing god of the Aeldari race... you know, those pointy ears pals that "surely will never tell you how to stop this incoming galactic disaster that will destroy us all unless it's taken care of"... yeah, yeah, don't worry, you don't need to have lewd pics of Matt Ward all over your bedroom just to understand I'm one of the spirit animals of a bunch of twisted cretins. So that pretty much explains why I went here, ditching the Webway in favour of your World Wide Web... I mean, it's not that bad, after all, you have quite a simple and nice community spend your times here.
So yeah, that's pretty much I... what now?... What do you mean "You should tell them about your preferences and rules for Rping"? They seem to be grown mon'keigh to me, they can figure... all right, fine, fine... jeez.

So, according to the ones in the backstage, It seems like I should put you up with a list of "rules" and all the others thing you should be aware of before considering the idea of joining me in an adventure of writing, emotions and cupcakes (yeah, I have plenty of them to share with my RP partners: nothing like refined sugar and chocolate chips to inspire the creativity, right?).


Little Rules

I do:
- Accept propositions to use one of my characters to create RP scenarios.
- Accept OOC discussions on various topics, even not initiated to create an RP relationship (aka: friendly chatting about the weather).
- Consider the idea of becoming a friend with someone after we had some interactions with each other. I'm not a "social-media" kinda guy, I create connections only when I feel they matter to me (yes, I'm a boomer when we are talking about the meaning of the term "Friendship"... no, literally, I'm an Aeldari God after all *BAZINGA!*). For the same reasons, relationships with my character come only after a pre-OOC discussion or after an RP session.
- My best to avoid ghosting: Despite having a hectic schedule for most of my week, I personally refuse to believe I'm unable to write a response to my RP partners saying, "Hey, sorry if the response it's taking more than the usual, but I'm busy with XXX, I will respond as soon as I can, probably around XXX". I've been ghosted, and I know who a pain in the dark side it can be, so you can be sure that this behaviour with me will almost certainly never happen (unless I've been hit by a truck and fall into a coma... that's, well...). For the same reason, I'm going to be honest and quick to tell the other part if something makes me uncomfortable\wanting to quit the RP.

I do not:
- Discuss topics that I would find controversial and not useful to an RP. I know the world outside is shi... sus, sometimes. I'm here exactly to distract my mind about it (trust me, I work in the gaming industry... the amount of political correctness, social justice, do this not that and all the topics that are correlated to this that I have to deal with daily is overwhelming). However, if you want to use them to set a fantastic scenario (example: a past-time slaver who comes to understand better the way of thinking of his "slaves"), that can be discussed. As long as the "hot topics" are used for a creative purpose, please propose them to me.
- Play with people who struggle to define a line between an RP and the writer behind it. I'm a veteran roleplayer (almost 20 years that I enjoy this hobby of mine), and I've played many characters, with some of them being very controversial (like a Nerull cannibal cleric in D&D, or an undead SS Totenkopf, or a university student cooking spaghetti in cold water). These three examples (especially the last) are not who I am, and someone unable to understand this is not someone I wish to spend my time with.
- Roleplay with short writers. This is not because I hold a grudge with people who prefer a more "discord-kind" type of RP (it's a style of writing, with both pros and cons compared to walltexters), but simply because I enjoy writing a lot (and, potentially, reading a lot). As such, people who prefer to read shorter text should not consider spending their time with me: it would be a tough match, potentially making you lose a fun time with other RP here on this site, with a much more suitable writing style to accommodate your preferences.

MY WRITING STYLE:
- Very, very long responses (2.000 characters or more on average, sometimes less if the situation is more "action" sided), descriptive and with a lot of details. The crudity of my writing tends to be adjusted to what character I'm using and what my partner is comfortable with. My RP sheets will always include a scale to define how much likely they can be involved in very violent\gory\sexual scenes.
- I tend to respond to my partner every 2 or 3 days on average, sometimes taking less (especially during weekends or particular periods of the day) and sometimes taking more, due to my job being... quite fickle with its hours. I'll always be sure to leave a message if I pass the week, just not to make you think I'm ghosting.


THE FINAL RULE

During my experience as an RPlayer, I've seen many partners feeling the absolute urge to leave a "good review" to their partners after an RP session has ended (the Kudos in this server). Let me make this perfectly clear: if you are writing a review because you have some "social norm" that is pushing you to do this out of courtesy, you are insulting me. I take pride in my creations, and when I write an RP, I'll always try my best, but that doesn't mean my "effort" should immediately grant me a good review. I want... what I'm saying, I pretend (yes, in this case, I'm going to go full pushy jerk mode):

- To be sincere with your feelings. If you liked the story we created together, feel free to give me kudos for what you appreciated in it. If you disliked what came out, give me a... the contrary of the kudos, specifying what you didn't like. If the result was "Meh", do not feel obliged to write anything (or, if you want, write what made you feel like it).
- To be sincere in your motivations to give me praise\warnings. You must feel like you want to do this, not because you think, "This one spent time and efforts with me trying his best to give me a good time; he deserves "compensation" for that".

Unsincere reviews are "bad for business" because:

- Negative reviews clarify where my writing style slipped, while positive highlight what I'm good at, allowing me to focus my future improvements in other areas. I'm blind to see where I'm in a good spot and where I'm not; other people's reviews allow me to see more clearly about this. I like to RP with what I have in a specific moment, but I also try my best to improve my style with every RP I choose to have. Do you really want to thank me? Please help me in improving what I'm going to write with my future partners.
- Sincere reviews are useful for new partners to understand how my writing style is, thus helping them choose (or not) me as a potential future partner for them. This could avoid them discovering, later on, that something about me as a player doesn't make them comfortable, putting them in a very complicated situation, because it's quite hard to tell the other part "I'm sorry, but I don't feel we should keep going" without risking to sound like a jerk (or, 99% of the times, thinking the other will categorize you as such). I have a deep knowledge of the human mind (from academic studies and my job), and let me tell you: social acceptance is not a bitch, it's the bitch.

Rave Reviews

Okay—I just started an RP with this guy and I wanted to say that he is a WONDERFUL writer. Not only that, he is very kind OOC and when we are just chatting. I haven’t known him long but I can tell he is a great guy. I recommend him to anyone who sees this, as an RP partner or as a friend. Kind and understanding Wonderful writer - ImCitrus
SO nice! Cegorach is amazing and I honestly finding myself looking up to his writing, and his kindness. He is very understanding when we are OOC, and IC, he becomes a master in writing. Keep being yourself buddy because you are wonderful. Kind and understanding Wonderful writer - KilNi
