--Why do you like to RP?

Games can be fun, for a while. But eventually you get tired of them. It's the MM aspect of MMORPG that make you want to stay. The people you meet and the friends you make are what make these types of games great.


RP Preferences:

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

For just some random "I'm a-gonna pick a fight with you" sort of thing, no.


Personally, I strongly dislike PvP of any sort. I'd much prefer to just get along with everyone, so I play the sort of character who, more or less, does get along with everyone. :P


That being said, if it's part of a storyline of some sort (and if everyone else will let me, of course... I always used to mutter OOC about having THF at 75 but never being allowed to assassinate anyone because my friends would intervene IC before I got into position for the killing blow... :P ), I'd consider it.


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

More of a "let's think about who should win and then work out the details" sort of thing. (Roegadyn pugilist versus Lalafell pugilist at close range? Despite potentially being the player of the Lalafell, my money's on the Roegadyn, unless there is some other notable circumstance. :D )


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

One of my characters tried to lose an eye once. His friends went and got him a rare potion that grew his eye back. I couldn't very well tell them after the fact that I didn't *want* it. :P In a fantasy world where magic exists, even death isn't permanent. Why should anything else be?


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

Generally, no. Over time, I put a lot of hard work into my characters, and I hate to see it lost in that way. However, in some circumstances.... well, let's just say it had better be a darn good story. Like, "I'll be telling people who never played the game how awesome my death scene was" kinda good. :P


--Are you willing to RP romance in game? How far are you willing to go?

Absolutely. I had some pretty hard lessons in keeping IC and OOC separate, many moons ago. As long as both parties are able to manage IC/OOC, though, it can be fun. :D


As far as "how far I'm willing to go"... well, you can't have kids if certain things don't happen, but that doesn't mean you have to go into detail as to *exactly how*. I much prefer the "fade-to-black" method.



--What kind of non-romantic RP relationships are you willing to take part in? (family ties, etc)

I'm open to suggestions.


--How far from the actual lore are you willing to stray?

Not very far at all, unless it makes sense. For instance... just because in FFXI lore Fenrir doesn't spontaneously manifest in Sarutabaruta and drag unconscious tarutaru back to Windurst doesn't mean he *can't*. :D


--Views on chat functions (IC vs OOC)?

/Say and /Linkshell (to use FFXI commands), in my opinion, should always be IC, barring the occasional emergency or announcement. I'm something of a purist, though... I tend to put parentheses around anything I say OOC, even if it's in /tells or /party and even around non-RPers. I've long since lost track of how many times somebody in a hunting party asked me what the parentheses were for. :P


--Are you looking for Cross-guild Rp?

Can't imagine why I wouldn't be. :D Caveat, though: strictest guild rules apply. If your guild allows its members to have hoverboards and mine doesn't, I'll be the only hoverboardless guy. :D


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

PMs work fine. I'd suggest email, but who's going to actually type out [email protected]? So... many... vowels... :P
