--Why do you like to RP?

I enjoy spontaneous story development and improv with others, and I like to feel immersed in a world that I'm playing in from time to time. It's almost like reading a book--instead of stepping in to the gaze of the protagonist in a novel, I'm stepping in to the role of my own heroine.


RP Preferences:


--Are you willing to RP a fight scene in game?

If there are in-game mechanics for it (such as World of Warcraft's duel system, or PVP in general), or if not a physical fight but a verbal one, sure.


--What is your preferred method of combat? (/randoming, skill based, etc)

Well if we're going outside of game mechanics I'd say a tabletop-esque system that is a mix of random and of set skills


--Are you willing to take major injuries in game? (ie limb loss)

Not unless the game mechanics include this. To me I couldn't sit there looking at my toon with all limbs and still pretend that I'm missing an arm or an ear. I could definitely do a temporary setback though, like if my character lost her voice for a week or if we went through some particularly epic fight and I couldn't go out and battle for a few days while I recuperated. I often use things like that to explain extended out-of-game absences.


--Are you willing to let your character die permanently?

Tentatively yes... Or send them off in to the sunset at the very least, if I'm done playing that character and know that I never want to play them again. I wrote out a finale for my FFXI Mithra, Niami. When I came back into XI for the last time and I realized most of my friends (including myself) were done with roleplaying our specific characters, I created a storyline where they all (the ones that weren't already dead) ended up going off to research an unexplored continent in Vana'diel and left it at that.


--Are you willing to RP romance in game? (ie Level of romance willing to go)

Haha I have before... Niami was married and also had a few flings. The romance aspect can be a lot of fun and I enjoy it (going off to fight monsters as a couple, etc.), but sometimes it can end with a lot of drama and that I DON'T like. My plans for my character Mythis are for her to be kind of like a Captain Kirk--she'll tumble with the boys (in a fade-to-black sense, not in an actually played out sense) but she doesn't want anything too personal. I can't say right now if I'd ever purposefully have one of my characters get into a romance with another character again.


--What about non-romantic relationships?

The problem with these is, what happens if one of the other players decides to stop playing the game, or leaves for a few months and comes back? I've had things like that happen before, primarily with RP romance, but I can see it happening to non-romantic relationships in game as well. I would say I'd only have a 'related' relationship (like brother, sister, cousin, etc.) with another player-character if they were someone who I trusted OOC that wasn't just going to drop the game 3 months later and totally leave that storyline on a cliff. As for non-related or non-romantic relationships, friends come and go and that goes double for adventurers who are already reckless with their lives. ;)


--Are you looking for Cross-guild Rp?

YES YES YES. The sooner people get over this 'one guild to rule them all' nonsense, the better.


--How do you prefer to be contacted? (PM or post in this thread)

Either/Or.. I don't really have a preference.
