Roleplaying Symbols are the text mark-up characters used to help communicate during a role-playing game.
This page serves to demonstrate and explain all of the symbols a player would encounter while roleplaying in Rune Scape.
These symbols are recognized throughout the Rune Scape roleplaying community by just about everyone - old and new, group and freelance, public and sandbox.
To signal that your input isn't done and that those interacting with you should wait to add something new until you've finished, put double-hyphens at the connected ends of your sentences.
For example, Jack might say: Note: When the double-hyphens stop, the typer has signaled that he is done.
In-game roleplaying in Rune Scape is a chatroom-style roleplaying medium.
As such, it makes use of a text-citation style different from the symbols used in standard prose.
For example, you could type: It's not uncommon to come across a character speaking in a language other than commonspeak.
Instead of spelling out Kharidian, Joe's player could instead type "KH" to tell the language he is speaking.
Once the spoken language is understood, its name or abbreviation can be dropped and the player could simply enclose his dialogue in brackets.
To indicate your character's speech, simply type what you want him/her to say and submit it to the game with no other markings.
To make your character announce he is pregnant, for example, you could type: Sometimes you might want to make it clear that your character is speaking only loud enough for his neighbor to hear or so loud that everyone in the room would hear whether they liked it or not.
