E-Fed, and Roleplaying Help...


Don't understand the concept of e-wrestling, eh? It's a fairly simple game to play...and a lot of fun to read. Hopefully, through this tutorial, we'll give you an idea on how to become a great e-wrestler.

First, let's go through a few terms that will be used in this tutorial, and all e-feds in general.

E-fed - A fantasy wrestling federation, where you can pretend you are a professional wrestler.

E-Wrestler - A character, either original (like Mr. SiNiStEr) or unoriginal (The Rock) used in e-feds.

Roleplays - RPs for short. Roleplaying is an interview your wrestler makes in an effort to prove he's better than his opponent.

Cards - The lineup of matches. With most e-feds, there are two or more cards a week, plus a [fake] pay per view a month. Cards usually have original names to attract viewers.

Booked - An e-fed where roleplays determine the winners. There is no luck involved in a booked fed...just roleplaying ability.

Non-Booked - An e-fed where the luck of the draw determines winners. The President of the e-fed either lets a program pick a random winner, or just picks one randomly him/herself.

Simulator - A program specially designed to create realistic, text based, wrestling matches.

Handler - The actual name/e-mail of the person that created and uses a particular wrestler.

E-wrestling works a lot like the WWF, WCW, or ECW. Two wrestlers get a match set for a particular card. The two of them fight at that card, one of them wins. One of the more important factors to wrestling, and who gets a high push (high push means they're more likely to win) is if they can do a good interview. Chris Jericho and the Rock would be two perfect examples of this- Both men can get the crowd to cheer, boo, yell, and scream just by speaking. The same concept works in e-wrestling. The only difference is, roleplaying is what determines your push. Roleplaying, essentially, is your voice in e-wrestling. In a booked fed, roleplaying would determine the winners completely. This means that you would have to go online and go to your e-feds particular guestbook, e-mail list, Message Board (RP Board) or even chatroom, and send out a roleplay in order for you to win. Your opponent would roleplay back to you, and you would go back and forth roleplaying until the specific date of the card. The matches would then be simmed, typed, or posted for you to view.

Creating a Wrestler

By now you're asking yourself one thing- "How do I go about roleplaying?" The idea in roleplaying is to trash talk your oppenant in as witty, intelligent, and/or unique a style as possible. It's not as easy as saying "I'm going to beat you 1-2-3." and expecting it to actually happen when the President determines the winners. But before we go more in depth with how to roleplay, you need an e-wrestler. In order to be a good roleplayer, the first step is to create an e-wrestler down to the last feature. Write down every last thing you can to describe your wrestler, so you can get a better idea on what he would look like if he was real. Let me give you an example of a wrestler:

Name: Mr SiNiStEr Height: 6'5" Weight: 285 lbs.

Gimmick: Mr. SiNiStEr is very mysterious. He enters the ring in unusual ways. He is usually quiet and down to business within the ring. He can get loud when he wants. Backstage, with the Brood, he is not afraid to do or say anything, but outside the back, he usually is to himself.

History: Not much is known about Mr. SiNiStEr. His dad was a drug addict, and mom was abusive. He ran away many times, but ususally came back. His dad ended up killing his mom, so Mr. SiNiStEr killed his dad. He has been on the run from the police for 12 years. He has changed his whole appearance, so Mr. SiNiStEr isn't even suspected as the person.

Wrestling Attire: Purple mask with a gothic symbol Black leather pants and a black shirt.

This could go even more in depth if neccessary. The point is, you can get an idea of what Mr. SiNiStEr would look like if he was in the real wrestling ring. This enchances his handler's roleplaying, because he can now talk the way he would expect Mr. SiNiStEr to talk, act the way Mr. SiNiStEr might act, and overall, become more detailed in his RPs.

Roleplaying Rules

Now, you've got your wrestler created. You want to try roleplaying, but you're not sure if you're good or not. Knowing how a person judges RPs would definitly enchance your chances of winning. There are many different ways that a President judges a roleplay. Quality is usually the most important factor. By quality, it means coming up with an original idea for your wrestler, making the roleplay "flow" (don't repeat yourself, don't start spitting out random sentences) and giving a vivid description of what's going on. Here are some basic rules:

Rule 1: Be Original This is, and by far, the most important point you must acheive. Too many e-wrestlers look and think alike these days. There are, in my opinion, way too much Steve Austin and Undertaker look-alikes. I have nothing wrong with that, as characters can share some points with real wrestlers, but the key to be original is to find something that will make your character UNIQUE. He must have something in his way of reacting, in his gimmick, that will set him apart from the pack. This applies not only in the character, but in the way he talks, acts, dresses, etc... Try to find some cool quotes that only your guy will say. No matter if your wrestler is inspired from a real one or if he's purely created, make sure he does have that touch of originality, something that only him will have, that will make him special.

Rule 2: Be Honest Too many people want their guys to be perfect, almost like they were invincible demigods. The problem is those people never want to admit they can have flaws. The truth is, nobody's perfect, even though everybody would want to be. This is one way to be original and unique, as well. You must look at your characters' personalities from both sides. Of course, a wrestler's weakness can be used against him, but the simple fact you do admit your weaknesses also gives you an extra push with the fed head, as that's the essence of roleplaying. Don't fear to admit your character's flaws, because it will make him only more interesting and it will also highlight his strengths.

Rule 3: Pretend your a wrestler Alot of rookies to the E-Wrestling world don't really know how it works, in the E-Wrestling world you shouldn't use words like E-Fed, E-Wrestler and words like that, the point of this is to pretend to be a real wrestler.

Roleplaying Tips

Here are some more tips so you don't become annoying, and start to lose more...

Put important words in bold, italic, or color(don't abuse the color, though);

Don't use huge characters(H1) or capital letters... Actually, you can use (H1) for an end quote, but please don't put the whole text in that format... Huge and capital letters should be used to indicate your character screams(example: "you're my favorite wrestler... NOT!!!", here you notice the "NOT!!!" was the character screaming... using caps all the time is VERY annoying);

Hey, "TT" tags aren't too good looking for interviews... ;

Imagine how would your wrestler actually talk, and write it like you see it;

Try to put some emotion in there(put exclamation points and the like... a bad example would be: "Hey. You're one big piece of trash. I'll kick your ass." That sounded like the guy actually read the sentence on a piece of paper... not very life-like);

Try to be innovative, and start trends;

When you are in a feud, stick with it for a while, it makes it more interesting than if you keep changing feuds, if so, people lose track of what's happening.

If you are new in an E-Fed, try to be reasonable, it is not a good idea to try and challenge the Heavyweight Champion for your first match, work your way up, no wrestler in the WWF, WcW or ECF win a title on their first match there.

Do not use pictures everywhere in your RPs, it takes the page longer to load and it gets harder to read.

Put the names of the people you are reffering to in the subject of your roleplay.

General Tips

I know that's a lot of stuff and regulations, but many of those things come naturally, while others just help make your RPs better. Okay... Here are some tips on how to be a successful roleplayer.


Make sure you spell all of the words you use right. Go back and double check if needed, but just try to catch the spelling errors and typos as you write. Make sure you leave spaces between words, so DON'T write like these examples...

Bad Examples: (1) "youre dead!ill bete you in the ring!big dammy!" (2) "Your dead, I'll beat you in the ring on monday"

In (1), the main problem was it was written by someone who is obviously illiterate. No capital letters, no spaces, it was pathetic. That person would NEVER win a match, unless they were against someone that died and was unable to roleplay.

In (2), it was good except for two things. They spelled "Your" wrong, it should've been "You're" in that use of it. And at the end, there was no period. It's still possible to win like that... But you better have some good stuff in there if you spell your words wrong frequently.


If your wrestler sounds like a 13 year old, he'll have as much of a chance of winning as a 13 year old. Watch the WWF or WCW sometime, the wrestlers don't swear and if they do, it's edited out. Also, how many 25 year old wrestlers say "p*ssy" or "d*ck?" Not too many.

Bad Examples:

(1) "Hey sh*tface p*ssy breath!"

That just sounded stupid. It, quite frankly, sucked. Grown ups don't talk like that, so your wrestlers shouldn't either. If it was up to me, I'd probably kick someone like that out of the fed for being a moron.


If you watch the WWF or WCW, have you EVER heard them say "jobber" or "JTTS?" In all my years, I have never heard that come from a wrestler, announcer, or commentators mouth.

Bad Examples:

(1) "I'm going to kick your ass, you jobber!"

He insulted someone by calling them a "jobber," a word that wrestlers shouldn't know and have no business saying. I don't do that, some others do, but I wouldn't reccomend it. It's not as important as that spelling thing or sounding like a kid thing, but it could make your roleplays sound better.


Don't jumble everything together in one big 5K paragraph. It's a little bit harder to read and doesn't look very good. Write in mulitple paragraphs, it will definately help you out.

Bad Examples: (1) Bad Roleplayer Man: Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah

Everything was jumbled together and it was all crammed. It's easier to read if you write in paragraphs and it looks much better.


Don't feel like you need to write an 11K roleplay every time. It will get boring for you and the reader and it will be obvious that you were just trying to get it to be really long. Just make your roleplays interesting and make sure they have quality, that's more important. But don't write 1K flashes either, because those are about 3 sentences and you can't get anything good done in three sentences. The average flash is about 3-5K with good quality. Don't make 11K or 1K flashes that are boring or pointless, it's just a waste of time. If you write the flash and it ends up to be 11K in the end, then it's okay because you weren't just trying to make it really long.


Describe what your wrestler is wearing, how he is acting, what he is doing. Be very descriptive so the reader can picture it in their head.

Good Examples. (1) ["Idolizer" Trace Michaels sits back on a black chair, reclining. He's wearing all green and red today. Some of the clothes he's featuring are a green t-shirt that says "Moo Krew" on it, green sweat pants with a red bandanna tied loosely around the left knee, and a red bandanna on his head, covering his long blonde hair. He looks towards the camera, stares at it for a second, then begins speaking.] I told what he was wearing, where he was, and what he was looking at. So the reader knows that he's sitting in a chair and can picture it in their head. You don't have to be THAT descriptive, but at least give the reader an idea of what's going on.


This has nothing to do with roleplaing, but... Don't e-mail the President of the league begging to win a match because it would really help you out and you need a win. It just gets the President mad at they will, most likely, job you in that match just because you asked to win. Instead of spending your time begging, write a good roleplay, you'll be more likely to win that way.

Bad Examples. (1) Please let me win, it could really help my wrestler out and give him the push I need.

That's just obvious that your begging and it means the same as "Please let me win! I don't want to lose!" It's just pointless and will get you obsolutely nowhere.


Don't use a ton of just to make your RP longer.

Bad Examples: (1)

Five words that took up two lines and looked really stupid. I always use 3 periods when indicating a pause."

Swearing in Roleplays: Did you ever notice how many guys today use the word, "f*ck"? It's just a common word now. They don't bother to put in a [BLEEP], they don't make any big deal at all. One question... how do we know when your character is really mad? Swearing has become too common in roleplays, and has lost its effectiveness when wrestlers let themselves "slip" in anger.

Don't get me wrong, words like ass, bitch, and bastard are fine. No bleeps, nothing. But when you step into the range of the f*cks and sh*ts and sexual references, try to use some control. Ask yourself, "If this were a real federation, would my promoter FIRE me over this interview?" Yes, I believe so. The fact of the matter is, you do NOT need swearing in roleplays to get heat. You could put an assorted [BLEEP] in an interview which is much much more effective than the actual word. At least it keeps the opponent guessing as to what you called them. :)

Just the plain fact is, a page of swearing is not a good roleplay. Not even a fairly good roleplay. Just control the mouth. It isn't appreciated.
