Where to find Role-Playing?

'Ello there,

I am rather new to ESO RP or will rephrase it to that I am looking for some Role-play to observe and watch and see how it is. I am certainly no stranger to it since I role-play on World of Warcraft but recently a friend has shown me screenshots of Elder Scrolls Online Role-Play and it looks absolutely amazing.

My main questions are where do I find RP? What zone, what building, what tavern, wherein the wild? Just a main hub so I can observe, to begin with. I would appreciate any help to get truly invested in my character and the ever-expanding world of Tamriel.

    If you're on PC/NA. The Withered Tree Inn in the Rift is a pretty good hub for Roleplayers. If you're looking for some RP or someone to Roleplay with you can msg me in game if you're on NA Server.

    Hi there! First welcome to ESO and the RP scene here lol. Secondly, there are plenty of areas to find RP in. Firstly, there's the Withered Tree tavern in Riften. That's the main RP hub in ESO NA. If you're looking for RP besides the usual tavern talk. There is this site called ESO RP that's like a directory to everything RP related in ESO such as different events, character sheets, stories on characters, different guilds, and a bunch of other stuff. I'll leave a link down below so you can see for yourself. I hope this helps and again from one fellow RPer to another, welcome :)

    It is hard to fine good RP in this game as Zos was originally going to support the RP community then changed their mind and turned their back. They said they would figure something out after the ditched their original plan but after 5 years and counting that seems to not be the case and would be to little to late if they did.

    I do not RP but a great many friends do serious RP and they abandoned this game because of the lack of support from Zos.
    Really, idk

    This has all been extremely helpful, but one small thing I am on EU unfortunately. If I may ask if any of you know the hotspot for RP on the EU server?

    I haven't been there myself - But everyone I have talked with has told me that Riften also is a hot-spot for EU. :)
    On a sidenote, people also told me it was mostly ERP - but if you're not into that sort of stuff, I am sure you can find people who do normal RP.

    In generel people in the different zones are very helpful. I just asked the zone-chat in Morrowind where to find RP, and almost immediately someone asked me if I wanted to join their guild. So I would say you should just go for it! :)

    If you are on PC/EU, the biggest RP hub is Stormhaven, or more specifically Wayrest. It serves as a sort of hub for multiple smaller RP guild that cross paths in the Stormhaven RP guild. You can occasionally stumble upon RP there "in the wild", but due to sharding and player housing it is not a reliable way to find RP. The SHRP guild is usually where spontaneous RP is organized, and from where you can join smaller groups dedicated towards specific purposes (noble RP, adventure RP, dark/crime RP). PM me if I need to shoot you an invite in the game.

    Note that there's also other RP hubs, but I am less experienced with them. There's Elsweyr RP, Vvardenfell RP, Aldmeri Dominion Roleplay, and some Skyrim-based groups that I know of. The RP scene in Europe is pretty big once you know under which rock to look. :wink:

    Erotic RolePlay. ERP. So... yeah, explicit. Generally not recommended in public.

    It's against ToS so if you are caught doing ERP it would be an instant ban.

    I'm interested in looking into some fun RP but prefer the Voice over the in game chat. Do people do that? Also, how would I go about finding these people? The same Withered Tree place?

    Having so many females suddenly have male voices might feel a little immersion breaking.

    There was a lot of RP in Skywatch in Auridon, but do not know if that is still the case.
    I am interested in RP too, but alas, it seems the RP is quite elitist in this game.


    You know you can find (RP) guilds with the guild window if you have still guild slots left?

    Or ask in the guild forum for an application.

    Kind regards,
    Have fun.

    Stealth is something.

    People do voice RP, text RP, and sometimes mix both. It depends purely on who you're RPing with. In my guild, Magicka we typically do text RP for main guild events, as text RP is the most accessible, but members host voice or mixed RPs every now and then too.

    As far as finding people, you could just RP out in the open and see if anyone joins you. Guilds are typically the place to seek RPers though. There are hotspots in the world, but those change and depend on the time and place and server. You can also look around on forums like these for like-minded RPers.
