I have had some characters on Landroval for some time now but have hesitated to join in any of the RP going on around me because, quite frankly, I have no idea about the rules/guidelines/protocols used. I once attempted to play some of my ABC music in the Prancing Pony when no one else was playing and I got a colder than frigid reception from some of the RPers in the area. So as I said, I'd like to join in occasionally but I have no idea how. ICing and using /e more than occasionally is difficult for me as I don't type quickly any more due to arthritis so with my mini on Crickhollow, I use my music to speak for me but Landroval has a much larger and more active Rp environment and I don't want to step on toes. So, as I asked earlier in this unintended volume, is there a guide somewhere where I could get the basics?

I have never tried to rp this being my first mmorpg and recently I learned a bit more about it and thought it would be fun. But the problem is that I don't have a good name for it. My name is Gollumaddicttwo. Completely against the lore and against rp. I don't want to change it because that would mess everything up with my friends and such. So any suggestions? Is it completely neccesary for rp to have a good name?
@gollumaddicttwo: For an RP name, make it your surname and make sure you use it in RP. For instance, if you chose the name Midhir, instead of just typing "/e approaches the elf-maiden." which would result in "Gollumaddicttwo approaches the elf-maiden." type "/e |Midhir approaches the elf-maiden." which results in "Gollumaddicttwo |Midhir approaches the elf-maiden."
My kin on Crickhollow all has lore appropriate names except for one of the founders, and he used a surname instead for RP. There was some confusion when kinnies forgot who "Malthemenel" was, but I thought it worked well.
