role player? Well A little tip I was given today is that by typing /RP on, you will show a sign to other players that you are either engaged in rp or simply a role player. Giving others the opportunity to engage in Role play with you.

As from my own experience, it would seem that you don't see your own char with that flag that says RP or RPing. But others will see it.

Great little thing to know.

Is there a shortcut to switch channels? Its a pain and slow to mouse click to switch channels back and forth ... especially during combat or movement.

The only shortcut that I know to work are:

/F as you press the space bar to type your text the channel will switch automatically.

/K same as above

/s same as above

/rpc same as above

There is how ever an other option that I did today, see here.

Personally I don't like the RP channel, since it's area-wide which breaks the immersion for myself when seeing 20 other people's messages in RP, when you yourself are say at Thorin's Halls and the others are at say Celondim or Duillond :P

I prefer to RP out of the /say mode, which also is more readable to me, since the chat text shows on top of the characters if you have the option enabled.

That's true, although I wonder if they didn't do that RP channel over the region so people might try to find whose rping and getting it in with the action.

Why Not use the Fellowship channel for our Rp and Kinship Channel for OOC Chatter? I changed the colors so that they stand out more making it easier to see which is which.

Because then the other players who are not in the fellowship wouldn't see us rp, and that wouldn't give them the chance to join us even if they are not from the kinship. :)

Still the best option to let otherts know we're RP'ing would be the /say channel, since it's always on for most folks.

True, we should test out the range of the say channel.

I think it's something akin to the range of view.

I agree with Chazzler on the rp channel about getting anyone from anywhere. Especially those that have come over from WoW and talk OOC and other unwanted chatter. I've turned most of those channels off because of some of the stuff I would see and the attitude they have towards anyone that says anything against them. Alot of them can really get obnoxious and vile.

Unfortunately, hopefully when they realize that the lotro community is not like that they will change. I've had a discussion with one of them yesterday who said he was a bit chocked by how mature this community was compared to what he saw on WoW.

But that's for an other subject.

Thanks for the /rp tip. I was wondering how to turn my flag on.

My WoW guild had and /rp and /ooc channel. I do prefer to rp in /say however since you can use emotes and actions to convey meaning.
