How do wewe solve battle scenes in RP's? Please help

I have made a few Rp's they were decent and made maarufu content but died for some reasons but i always had one main problem.....

How can wewe solve battle scenes between two characters without causing problems?

I mean wewe can write [ Jake punched Tim and Tim nose was broken] but in the end no one wants there character to lose the fight which causes problems, au can make and endless string of post because everyone wants to nice

[ please help because im making a VIKING Rp soon and hope to see a lot of fights and death! lol help ]

I've written quite a few battle scenes in RPs before. The trick is not for one person to write the whole battle, the trick is to leave openings. For example, using the fight wewe demonstrated, it should be written like this:

PersonA: "Jake's fist cocked back, ready to ngumi, punch Tim in the nose"
PersonB: "Tim had no time to dodge as Jake's blow landed square in his face, shattering his nose"

au something along those lines. wewe need to let the other person decide if the blow is a hit au miss.
Think of RP fight scenes as playing Battleship. wewe can't make a songesha until wewe know whether wewe hit au missed.

yes but still Someone has to lose. au it could end up endless post au no winner is decided because of an outside event stopping it

As the battle goes on, it'll become clear which character is the most likely to survive, and which isn't. Remember that game of Battleship? After a while, wewe can easily figure out where your opponent's ships are. Once wewe reach that point, unless your opponent did too, then the rest of the game is just wewe sinking the rest of the ships

Once wewe get that far in the story, wewe have an idea o who would win au lose in a fight. Think of it as battling with Pokemon (excuse the reference). Each one has its unique type, abilities, and attacks, meaning that every battle is different

I tend to have that problem as well, and I know this is an old swali but meh. I was bored XD

Because of that problem, I dont look at rps very hopefully though I am part of 'The Banished' which does have quite a few fights.

Like the person above me said, wewe do have to leave openings and allow the opponent to actually respond to the attack. Also we all know everyone will just have their characters dodge and dodge and dodge and it will be an endless battle. Thats why firstly, wewe gotta be logical and fair otherwise is simply become overpowering if its so easy. Then again think about the characters skill level. That stuff is all important but the two biggest things to me are the following.

1. Rp with people wewe know wewe can Rp with

2. Plan our the victor au how the battle is going to end

Some people arent compatible with rping well with. Like the people that wont drop their pride in their character enough to loose a fight. Maybe someone to match that would be someone who cant win a fight (this is a rare species of rp-er). Also it is helpful if wewe can talk to the rp-ers so wewe can actually agree on things rather than just ngumi, punch ngumi, punch punch. This leads me onto the sekunde thing.

Plan. If wewe dont have a plan for the battle au an idea for the battle, wewe will get no where. Sure its easy when wewe are fighting your own characters but its just a bit harder when wewe are fighting another rp-er's characters. Thats why wewe should know who wewe are rp-ing with and talk with them. Dont start a pointless fight. A pointless fight wont have a good ending and if it is a pointless fight it should end without a winner like them fleeing. Every battle done should have at least a BIT of point to them. Usually when there is a point to them that wewe have talked out with the other person, it is easy to come to a conclusion

And just a few tips.

When wewe make a fighting rp, remind the rp-ers that there will be death, especially if wewe expect it.

Also remind them that their characters arent all mighty and will have to loose occasionally

And a loss isnt always a bad thing. Its good for character development...... Which always makes a fight good


I think there was one zaidi thing but I forgot it
