WELCOME, WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

Here in the RolePlaying Academy, we seek to improve the skills we already have and to help those struggling find a place to learn and grow. Once enrolled, you will be assigned to a Mentor who will guide you, teach you, and most importantly, show you how things are done.

What do I do?
If you seek a Mentor, simply leave a post asking for one. Don't forget to mention what it is that you wish to learn; improvements in language, character creation, plot and more.
Okay, so, once I get a Mentor, then what?
Discuss with your Mentor how you will be tutored; will it be through lessons? Or does your Mentor want you to join a Roleplay and see what you've got? It all depends on the Mentor and their method of teaching. The first step is establishing communication, then identifying your weaknesses, and from there the learning can begin.
When am I done / When will I know I've improved?
That will be up to your Mentor. They're not just going to talk at you, they'll ensure that you improve and work rigorously to achieve this, at times directly involving themselves in your own work.
MENTORS

The cream of the crop in their respective fields, these guys know what they're talking about--and have the proof to back up their egos and/or what other people say about them.

Can I sign up to be a Mentor?
Of course. Simply fill out the template provided below and PM it to me.
Username
Desired Position(s) of Mentor
Example of Work
Why you should be a Mentor
How you would Teach


Why are there different 'types' of Mentors...? That's weird.
Because each Mentor will have an area / areas they specialise in.
MENTOR TYPES

CUNNING LINGUIST
Mentors who know their spelling, grammar, wording, sentence structure, and anything else to make your writing competent and interesting.

CREATIVE EXTRAORDINAIRE
Mentors who can get the juices flowing in that brain of yours and teach you how to be original.

WEB-WEAVER
Mentors on drawing together the significant and the intricate in your creations, with successful and meaningful results.

BULLSHIT ARTIST
Mentors who've got the gift to make even the most far-fetched concept not only sound understandable, but believable too.

IDEALOGY EXPERT
Mentors on ideas - how to grow and shape them, and incorporate them into roleplays, characters and more.

ARENA MASTER
Mentors on fighting, showing you the techniques and tools of the trade, as well as getting your warrior up to scratch.

GENREMEISTER
Mentors who know the features and works of their adopted genre like the back of their hand, helping you to develop and settle into any world or character of that style.

WORLD-MAKER
Mentors who can help you create worlds as fascinating and detailed as any story.

POST-IT-POSTER
Mentors who don't know the meaning of the term 'writer's block' - they know how to churn out interesting posts that people will actually want to read.

BASTARDLY VILLAIN
Mentors on baddies--and how to actually make them, you know, BAD.

HONORABLE HERO
Mentors on making heroes--without making them rip-offs of your favorite characters, avoiding Mary Sues, and making them original heroes that actually do something.

GREY-MATTERER
Mentors who can get into the gooey insides of your characters' minds and bring out the aspects you need them to show.

And Many More to Come! If you have an idea for a Mentor type, simply state so in a post while giving a ridiculous name for your type. (Ridiculous / Humorous Name Required)

Can I pick a Mentor?
Most certainly, but please respect the Mentor’s wishes if they cannot / choose not to teach you. You have to understand that Mentors are people like you, and may be busy with other Students, or have problems they must handle in Real Life.
What if I don't want a Mentor? What if I just have a question, or want a little advice?
That's alright, just come on by and ask away. :]

I wonder, is this a discussion?

If so, based on what was posted in the other thread, which position(s) would I be best for...?

This could be a discussion thread as well, if only for ideas to improve and Mentorship tips and complaining and such.

I definitely like this idea. I don't think I'll be much help (since I know more about Creative Writing than I do about the specifics of Roleplaying, if that makes sense), but I love the initiative.

put me under grammar hound, if you would. I feel like that's where I'll be of most use :].

edit: also, are you doing a creative play on words when you said "bastardly villains," or did you mean "dastardly?"

It's a play on words, a lame one, at that. ^^;;

I am here seeking a mentor! I wish to be helped creating "bad guys" for a roleplay a friend and I have been working on for quite the time (concepts and settings, but we need to work on the characters within the plot). To be completely honest, I at first thought it would be easy to come up with a baddie. But as time went on, I realized that I could be better at it.

I could also use a lot of help with posting regularly with interesting posts. I'm used to writing poetry or stories, which aren't really anything like interval add-ons that RPs seem to require.

I can't PM or VM Evangeline for some reason. Is there any other way for me to submit an application?

If you're receiving a message something along the lines of "No User Specified; please contact an administrator," then some word or phrase in the text is triggering it. Why that's so, I have no idea, but that has happened to me numerous times.

Oh, my Inbox was full, if you could try sending it again, that'd be great. ^^

That's exactly what happened, and it's not my first time either.

I hate to be a pain, but I think what Ordeith said explains it, and because I don't know the trigger word, I can't edit the message to get it to cooperate. I'm really sorry about this. Is there another way I can contact you? Alternatively, I could leave my application in this thread.
