This is a simple guide which should be able to help with the understanding of commonly used role playing abbreviations and terms.

Abbreviations

RP - Role Play

The state of creating one or more characters and playing as if you're in their position.

OC -Original Character

A character which has been created by you and used throughout one or more role plays.

IC -In Character

The state of playing as your desired character and role playing as him/her.

OoC - Out of Character

The state of being outside your desired character and speaking as yourself, to either inform or state something.

For example:

The man moved through the room with ease, his eyes flickering the gloom attentively.

(OoC: He changed places)

OP - Over Powered

A character which is generally more powerful than most others and has abilities which aren't sensible. Basically, it's a character which is over powered.

Terms

TBA.

Why is a raven like a writing desk?

Because there is a B in both and an N in neither.
