...so, is Donald a hyper-idiot.. or at some half-way point between idiot and normal player; representing some strange link between the two?
And then.. erm, I went on a little rant about WoW rp. Then realized I had nowhere to put it but here. Should really have chucked it in some spoiler tags, but they don't exist on this forum it would appear.
Also, ever tried to roleplay around someone like a Llelgolas? Pretty hard, as it happens. Even harder to actually insult them, for some reason.. they just vomit up random facts from their "lel epic bakstory" and listen to the voices in their head, I swear. No matter how you casually insult their character's mother, abuse the /rolleyes command or start making your character gouge out his eardrums. The number of times that.. look, maybe an example would help.
Say I'm playing a dwarf. I'm on an RP server, in the normal RP areas.. drinkin' a beer and reading a book. Providing an opening for someone to say, ask me what I'm reading. Or drinking. Or if the slavering spider lurking under the tree outside is mine. I've baited my hooks and cast them into the universe for a bite.
Level.. 10-20 guy walks in without a word, without fail and sits next to me.
"i'm a demon, dont tell any one." or something. First thing they say. Always happens. Wearing their quest greens, not even trying for an rp set. Bonus points if they are using some level 1 gear still. Always happens.
Who the f*ck would actually do that? Who? There's no sane person out there who would. There's no role out there to play as, aside from 'bad roleplayer' which acts so.
Or even worse, just belting out their race/class. Because I'd never have guessed you were a frickin' Draenei. Thought you were a Gnome, get out! At least the demon-sorcerer-hybrid-exile-drag queen-superhero is trying. There's some vague hope then.. sort of.
Okay, not really. But in theory there's a smidgen of a glimmer of hope.
And yet the next day, I went and sat down, start tinkering with a gun and hope that someone will take a roleplay hook with a brain between their oft-pointy ears.
Anyway, that's why I stopped roleplaying on EU Moonglade.
I could only have two hundred and fifty five characters and so I thought to myself: Why not fill it up to obtain all use out of it as I can? So that is precisely what I did, with no rhyme or reason, the entire sig exists purely to exist for it's own sake.
