Roleplay (Role-play, RP) translated into Vietnamese means role-playing. This is the term used to refer to a person changing their behavior, gestures and posture to resemble an Original Character (OC) – a built-in or self-imagined character, model, or image.
Roleplayer is the person who plays the role.
In addition to wearing costumes and makeup like a certain character, when Roleplay you also have to behave so that the people around you feel that you are that character. Roleplay is also supported by context, space and script… for the “role player” to achieve the highest efficiency.
