As I see it, roleplaying is designing and acting out your character in a
way that is appropriate to the world setting. This includes
personalizing your character to make him a distinct persona, different
from other similar characters (i.e. just making a dwarf fighter and
spending all your time fighting and leveling is not roleplaying, since
there's nothing to distinguish such a character from a mindless robot
that wears a dwarven mask).
