      I'd be happy to help out with this if you need another veteran to guide things along?

      You came to the right place. You can RP in the shoutbox and RP forum. You simply read the quotes before you and try to join in if you're joining an RP. Otherwise, simply write away if you're simply just on your own. The most etiquette you can be is to simply have good grammar and try to stay Canon.
      @Thunderfall Is this reasonable?

      Sounds good. As for joining an RP in-play, there are certain things to consider to ensure that your character gels into the situation easily. My first tip is not to be intrusive, like having your character literally drop out of the sky, or having them charge up to the other characters and get up in their business. Have your character enter the scene, have them notice the other characters, and slowly ease into it. There's no shame in doing a couple of posts where you don't interact with anyone to start with: find a point where your character can casually enter an interaction, or who knows? The other RPers may approach you if you do it right.

      The trouble with exploding into the RP is that you can mess up what other people were doing or generally shake up the scene. For example, a while ago I was in the middle of an RP when a new character divebombed into the ground in front of the group leaving a large crater. Naturally, everypony stuck their heads over the edge to ask if they were alright. The user never posted in the RP again, and I found it very difficult to continue, even after we retconned that event. I think it was shortly after that that the entire RP just died.

      So to summarise: ease your character into a scenario gently and organically. Don't do something big and expect the other players to react to you, because they might not.

      To sum it up. Be interesting. Not exactly attention hogging. But enough so that your character isn't just in the background. Observe. Assess. Initiate. All you really need to do.
      Quite like me~
