DRB Jargon

| General

The use of jargon is a very important part of roleplaying within any server. It’s about using creativity within improv, while keeping realism in mind.
The goal within teaching proper jargon, is not to dictate how a person communicates whilst roleplaying, but rather encourage more creative thinking when speaking for your character. After all, it can make or break someone’s immersion while trying to communicate.

Telling someone in real life that your head popped is sure to turn heads, whereas stating you have a migraine makes a lot more sense when having a conversation in the real world.

Many roleplayers are conditioned to using some ridiculous phrases without thought, which is why we’ve added a list of things to say, and a list of things not to say.
