I fully support the idea of an RP server and anything else that will help the RP community grow and flourish!

I'm sure the actual RP community can band together to take care of them though.

Besides, EVERY channel/server/all of BDO is going to have those problems at some point or another, it's all about how you/we handle them.

Bringing the RP community together > not doing anything because of possible trolls

Exactly, the trolls can not be stopped. Best thing to do is ignore them, or feed them occasionally for luls :P

I have only tried properly RP'ing in one other game before this (Shin Megami Tensei: IMAGINE, before it shut down), and while I very much enjoy RPing in general, I haven't found a game to do so comfortably in ever since. I believe that having a dedicated RP server would help me, and others like me, really get into this game - if realism is the name of what Black Desert strives for, why not go all the way? Why not make a place where people who spend their days making horseshoes to sell can roleplay as a farrier?

All the building blocks are in place to make this a fantastic roleplaying experience, even for those who want to try but found the MMOs before BDO too detached from reality. 

Just my two cents, sorry if it's a little disjointed or seems like incomplete thoughts.

Yep, I'm all for a server, a channel? Not so much in the slightest.

I was Ashfall - guild leader of Leviatha, had a mirror Inugami, usually ran as support. Sound familiar at all? :)

Something that is small and simple, yet has a huge impact in appealing to many thousands of players! I'm no RP'er but I greatly support this!

I worked out that over the last two years I've spent over £1k on buying extra bits (mainly costumes) in mmo's, at least 90% of that was because of role play. 

I'm not rich in any way at all, for instance I get most of my clothes off ebay, however I find nothing wrong personally with spending money like that on something I love doing.

I am just one rp'er, I shudder to think of how much other more dedicated rp'ers spend. 

I thought it worth pointing out as whilst it might be crass, ultimately that is what having a great role player following means to a game company.

As a player I do want to be able to locate other like minded individuals.

I want to tell people interactive stories, to add to their fun, to elevate normal gameplay to something special that they'll not only remember, but keep them hooked and invested for a long time to come.

I can't pretend that I know how to do that, however I would beg that any help such as suggested here is seriously considered.

But I prefer a rp channel cause I'm a "casual role player"... so I can switch channel occasionally when I want to do some roleplay with my char, without leveling another character in another server

This sounds like a great idea, but I agree that a RP server would be best.

A definite +1. I just hope that the European servers have a strong RP community with such a different range of languages D:

Sadly you're the vast minority of people whom would be switching for that reason I'm afraid. x_X It's why an RP channel would just lead to much more annoyance then anything else.

Most other MMO's that have had an RP server seem to be for both casual and "hardcore" RPer's. 

I can only really comment on my experience though, so I wouldn't see a channel making much of a difference, meaning I still think it would be beneficial with a server as people can and often do go casual.

There are people who will get highly involved in RP and those who will just "take a nibble" when they don't feel like hamming it up.

not to mention rp servers have better communities than most others even for non-rpers.
