Hi and welcome to the server!

What you want to RP is totally up to you. However, I suggest you to get more familiar with the server first and it's easier to do with a somewhat legal character. If you join a faction at this point, it can be frustrating and you will have to learn a lot of information including the faction rules etc. I suggest you to stay on your own and get more familiar with the server first before joining any faction.

My advice would be to try to start working as a mechanic or a taxi driver, that must be the quickest way to learn more about the server without getting bored because sometimes new players get bored as they don't have much things to do due to the fact they play alone. So becoming a mechanic or a taxi driver is going to allow you to always have something to do on the server and interact with a lot of players on daily basis, make friends and so on.

If you choose to become a mechanic or a taxi driver, I suggest you to join one of the companies on the server, that's going to help you make more friends and make your stay more fun, also you don't have to learn bunch of new rules, companies are very simple comparing to the factions. If you have any questions or need advice about a specific topic, feel free to send me a PM. I am more than happy to help you out.

Enjoy your stay!

The easiest and most effective tip for good RP is to keep all OOC to a minimum, this means no humorous chats over /b and no conversations over /pm. This means you don't treat the game as a Second-Life equivalent for socialising and when you hop in game, it's just to roleplay your character. Not an extension of yourself but another being.

Just be aware of the server rules, join a good faction, and start interacting with people, get to know some friends around to help you from time to time.

Keep a clear vision for your character..what is the end goal that you want to achieve from that particular character. Whether it is becoming the Chief of Police or OG of Street Gang.

Once you know that, then focus on ways to achieve that vision. This will help you in laying down a path like which server features you should test out that will contribute towards your vision.

There are so many things to experience in LSRP and one can easily gets confused from where to start but if you focus on character development, you will definitely have a great time playing in the server.

Make sure your character is human and you play his role with a consideration of him as a different entity, have a vision for him beyond "John Gotti wants to become a made man",

The above can obviously be one aspect of your character, but its only an aspect, make sure character is "real" and the character is setting and following his IC objectives realistically, independent of your OOC vision and desires.

This is the best way to have fun, you're in the game to act not to win.

I'm also fairly new to the server myself, but I do have some experience with other roleplay servers.

The biggest & most effective tip I can give a new player would be to not project themselves into their character. Most of the time (I include myself when I began roleplaying) we tend to relate to our character & project ourselves onto them. This can be good whenever you encounter a positive occurrence or an accomplishment, but it can be very toxic whenever you encounter a loss or a negative occurrence. For example; if your character gets robbed out of a car you've worked very hard on, it's typical that one would feel an adrenaline rush & start getting upset. Remember, you didn't lose a single thing, your character did. Think about how they would react, not what your natural reaction would be. I guarantee you that following this simple tip will make your roleplaying experience much more enjoyable.

TL;DR Your character is not you, it is a separate entity.

Build up your character along with your economy. Show development as that's completely adored nowadays. Improvement or deterioration of the character is always loved.

We’re here to roleplay human beings. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, don’t be afraid to mess up. We prefer to see a human being portrayed rather than a robot. We’re here to have fun! Also proper English, punctuation, and grammar are a plus!

Welcome and we hope you have fun!

Remember to join - follow the rules and roleplay whatever you want to be!

Like real life, people fail and they get back up, your character should do the same!

Welcome - good luck and have fun!
