I am a roleplayer in Caitsith and would just like to test the waters a bit. Myself and a friend, Shinsa are roleplaying towards a goal of conquest to bring honor to our nations (Myself San D'Oria, Shinsa Bastok)

It is a long story to explain here and for the sake of brevity I won't waste the time of the people who ultimately not interested, but if you are a roleplayer who would like to become involved in our story somehow, then I would be glad to meet you.

So if interested, my Handle is Avith Poro and my character's name is Avith.

Yeah, as far as role playing is concerned. I have no problem with it, just stay away from me with that crap.

I *never* did role playing, even when I was a kid playing Dungeons and Dragons, we didn't act out the parts.

I might be a geek, but not THAT much of a geek.

^^ to all you RP nerds.

Okay, I really enjoy how a few of you people took time out of your busy schedules (probably due withdrawls from the maintenance) to defame a group of people who happen to want to do more with their time than just power level their characters.

If you don't have anything nice to say then shut your trap and move on.

I'm sorry if I'm rude, but I don't need people who are just like me treating me like I'm a lower species.

Thanks good night.

How are roleplayers nerds? Saying this is just like saying every hollywood movie star is a nerd. :P

Roleplaying is just like acting. You play a character that either has or does not have the same type of personality as yourself, irl. The same goes for hollywood actors, play out according to their characters in the movie, whether that character has the same personality as the actor irl or not. Both roleplayers and actors put effort into their character's acting.

The only difference is roleplayers have full control of their characters, they can choose what type of personality and attitude their charcters have, they can choose what road their character will walk. Unlike actors who must play out their character according wo what is written in a script. Even though I'm not an actor myself, I can imagine how boring that can be.

Roleplayers are allowed to bring their imaginations and creativity to fruitition. They are not limited by a pre-written script. They have full control of their characters.

I've RPed D&D before, and yes, it is fun. Although sometimes it does feel kind of cheesy trying to play a character that has a totally different personality than you do.

I love roleplaying.

But I will not roleplay in this game.

This game isn't meant to be roleplayed--it has too many limitations. For a game to be roleplayable, it needs to be Dungeon Master-friendly. This game lacks any type of DM support entirely. If it did have a DM tool, I would be all in for roleplaying. Sadly, it doesn't, and there is no way to control how "the story" goes, there is no way to control NPC reactions and responses, there is no way to create missions and quests.

But if you're up to the challenge of trying to do it nonetheless, by all means go ahead. I encourage you to. If you do manage to somehow get a good roleplay going on, please do tell me. I may be interested then. ^^

Cheers!

I dont think it was intended to bash you at all, from the way i read it their comments were all in jest ... hence the " ^^ " that they put afterwords

lighten up ... you took all their comments out of context

I had this fancy shmancy idea to have a RP linkshell back when PC first came out in NA. I bought this LS and have only handed out one pearl to a irl buddy of mine on Caitsith. It would be great to actually have a storyline or something going. If you want help or something I am def in! I am not on as often as I used to be but I am trying to get a normal schedule now so that should get better soon. If you see me on caitsith gimme a /tell and reference the RP thing. I am sure my irl pal would pitch into the game as well.
