  1. Hey gang. So I'm a semi-returning (role)player, I've played this game in very short periods ever since it started but I was never really able to commit to it, neither to the RP side of things or the content and that was mostly because I was still used to playing WoW, but now that I'm finally done with that game, I'm willing to settle my roots here. I've got a young tribal Miqo of a character that I've used for some light roleplay before, though I've decided to restart and remake his character a little bit. While he does have a (I hope) somewhat engaging backstory and a growing personality, I view him as a blank sheet waiting to be filled by people I interact with. While I do have two main "paths" that he could take as a character I'm very interested to meet other people to accompany him on that journey - who knows, maybe he'll divulge from one of those paths and go in an entirely diffrent direction! I of course wouldn't object to that, I like the roleplay to run its' natural course. I'm a fairly laidback guy and I consider myself rather chatty, so I'm open to most roleplay stuff and character. While I'd like to note I'm from Europe (GMT+1) and would prefer to find other people to play with from Europe, my varied workhours allow me to interact with you fine people from all across the globe. Besides from roleplay, I'm interested in doing other kinds of content, though I'm usually a solo leveler kind of guy. I'll update this thread with some specifics later on, but I'm also working on a wiki character page for the guy, which you can check out below if interested. I'd also love to hear some feedback about it and maybe get some help with the layout (that I shamelessly borrowed from someone else). Stay frosty! https://wiki.ffxiv-roleplayers.com/pages/D'eshel_Tia
  2. I honestly don't understand how any of what you were writing about, Titor, is related to this issue. It's not the case of modders asking for donations/money for their work. It's the case of Valve/Bethesda wanting to get a slice of the money the modders could/are getting and then creating the means to get them. The example you posted would relate if Square-Enix would suddently want to get a slice of the profit from the artwork (since it would be a part of the setting they created) along with whoever owns RPC.
  3. That's something that already happened. I think it was also labeled as a "early access" mod, which then got brought down by Valve. early access mod for people to buy
  4. Honestly, if behaviour like this will continue, we'll soon be paying for patches. P.S: Crap, I shouldn't be giving them ideas. Another edit: I have to say though, browsing through the new mods added to Skyrim, I've had a few laughs. The best one so far is No Imperials.
  5. bethesda pls stop breaking pc gaming kkthx All in all, I'm just waiting for the top modders to make their announcements about not supporting this horrible idea which will hopefully be the first nail to its' coffin. The most obvious alternative has already been suggested to Valve a bunch of times (a simple donate button). P.S: I'm also waiting for AngryJoe to make a rant about this. It'll be good.
  6. So... Bethesda is the first studio that actually kickstarted this whole thing, right? It's kind of hillarious, considering they were putting Skyrim mod content into their DLCs.
  7. Uh... what? What are you talking about? You do realise that modders in this situation get the least or the same amount of profit as Valve does, right? (from what I understood, most of the cash always goes to the dev). Yeah, mods are hard to make, there's no point in denying that, but since when did any modder DEMAND money for a mod? They were doing it mostly for fun and for the gaming community. What they deserve is a donate button, not something like this, where their work can be easily stolen by someone for profit.

    Where in the blue hells do you hang out, anyway?

    I'm not a forum celebrity, am afraid. P.S: But I really never want to be.

    It is to every good roleplayer, or at least I hope it is. It's not about primarily having fun, because you can have fun while ruining someone's life, as I'm sure everyone here is aware of.

    Another thing worth remembering is that ERP is not -the only- type of RP that can go dark and wreck friendships, as others have mentioned, which somewhat relates to my earlier post. People can be just uncomfortable with other "mature" themes or even types of RP/characters that don't cross that border. I've heard of cases where people felt hurt when overly rude type of characters harassed their toons, even if just verbally. So it all boils down to what we accept and what we don't. I'm tolerant of a lot of things and I'm a patient person, but that doesn't mean I keep thinking that everyone around me is the same. The same applies to everyone out there. Maybe someone is fine with ERP but has a problem with, say, roleplaying out torture scenes (even if mild). You're playing with real people, not A.Is and respect should be shared across both parties. This is the most important rule of RP, no matter what type it is.

    Stupid Miqo'te question...

    I'm thinking they'd lose more -hair- here and there rather than -fur- since, as Graeham pointed out, Miqo'te seem to have a lot more human traits than feline. They're not like, say ,Khajiit from TES.

    This always boggled my mind and let me to believe that a good number of roleplayers are either hypocrites or just plain goofs. On one hand, we have people like OP has mentioned in the beginning of her post - who treat ERP like they have witchcraft in medieval times. Sure, I get it, you don't really have to like it, but it -is- roleplay. Other people do it to further develop their characters and that's the only part that should concern you. The hypocrism part is that most of the time, these people come up with the "mature theme in a not-M-rated-game" argument. Now hold on just a minute. If you're uncomfortable with sex, how come you're comfortable with people roleplaying out violence, alcohol, drugs, abuse or even torture? How the hell is torture ten times worse than sex in your eyes? All I'm saying is, I never understood these kinds of people and the arguments they come up with are often just plain dumb. Oh and on a sidenote, let's not forget the people who actually ERP but side up with the people I described above just so they wouldn't lose "their street cred". This is a really, really big problem that doesn't seem to be solved over these years. Roleplayers suffer from a lot more abuse and (in some cases) hate than from non-roleplayers. How the hell can anyone be okay with that? It's just roleplay, for crying out loud. All of you on that side, I think you should read the basics of roleplay and then rethink the matter. ^P.S: Of course I hope that we don't have these kind of people on RPC, it was just a general shoutout. ;s

    What kind of drunk is your character?

    Damn, D'esh hasn't even tasted alcohol. Somebody has to fix this. Probably his obscenic, outgoing girlfriend who touched alcohol more times than he bewbs will get to it upon learning this.
