When it comes to role-play, some people can find it daunting. There is a lot to take in, a lot to manage, a lot to consider and a lot to learn. Some may even find it over-whelming when they wish to take their first steps and try it out.
To this, I have compiled several guides to help those who are new to role-play, touching on subjects commonly seen in role-play, as well as those who wish to expand into hosting their own events.
