Yeah man, we're cool.
Basically, an RPG is like a written story where every post is like another very short chapter, and your posts focus on your character's perspective and actions. For example:
Player A: Xenomorph attacks Predator, possibly text regarding to the character's thoughts, and MINOR actions performed by Predator, such as blocking or striking back.
Player B: Predator recovers from Xenomorph attack, and returns with another attack, again possible inner monologue and minor actions performed by the Xenomorph, such as a counter-attack or block.
Obviously it's much more complex than that, but hopefully you get the general idea. Seeing as you're a Xenomorph player, you'd be Player A and your opponent would be Player B.
Rules regarding RPG posts and the control of other peoples' characters include things like, if there's a Marine character, such as Peterson, you cannot have them say anything unless you email them or discuss it with them first, or if they've said it in their previous post and you're including that in your post at the start. In a fight situation you must wait 5 posts before landing a final, killing strike, the killing strike would be on the 6th post.
Also, I'm going to lay this down as it is an enormous pet peeve of mine.
Xenomorphs cannot speak externally, inner monologue is fine, but you can't make conversation with a member of another species. I personally would prefer if you didn't have your character speak in English to other Xenomorphs as well, but that's up to you, it's easier for a lot of people to understand, and Bloo does a wonderful job of it, he's the only one that implements it so well that it doesn't bother me.
