What is Roleplaying?
Roleplaying is the changing of one's behavior to assume a role, like an actor in a play or a character in a book. While roleplaying may seem a little strange for those who have never experienced it before, the reality is that it is just another way for players to enjoy the shard!

Roleplaying games, such as Dungeons and Dragons, were originally published as books, which explained the rules, environment and characters. One person was selected to be the GM (Game master/storyteller) leading you through quest storylines. The players spoke out loud to the group and described what they were doing and saying.

RP is optional, but encouraged

UO Evolution is a private free Ultima Online shard with emphasis on PVM and limited PVP. 


We don't focus on roleplay, or RP as its called, but we do encourage players to enjoy this style of play.  There are guilds you can join or you can just participate when an event is scheduled for public enjoyment.  Role-players will find an exciting fantasy world based on the original Ultima Online Game, along with our own custom content and storylines.
 
RP Events
 
We encourage all players to create their own events and storylines.  The veteran players can help you out or you can ask a GM to help prepare.


Here is a good post to read the details

I have been working on reorganizing the roleplay guilds again.  I am recruiting some key players to help run the guilds and plan specific events

I have rewritten the Roleplaying Guide. Make sure you take the time to read it and understand the concept and rules to participate in the fun
