Role Playing

From Ashes of Creation Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Sometimes creating a character is not enough. Role playing takes the game to another level by acting as if you are actually the character. There won't be official RP servers in Ashes of Creation[1], but since Intrepid Studios has a lot of RPers in it there will surely be RPers mixed among the different servers. RPMade Simple created a nice Beginners Guide for people who are interested in getting into role playing.
