My RPG confession

Okay. Here's my confession to all the Vine, but especially to you the RPGers.

I am not a stranger to the RPG section. But I'm not an old hand either. At best I would call myself a novice, and at worst a beginner. I really enjoy RPing. And @pyrogram was super cool showing me the ropes, and teaching me the rules/lingo, etc. One of the reasons I (kinda) stopped was the fights. I get that (RPG) fighting is a big part of this world. But I can barely write a fight scene in my stories with all the time I need, let alone in an RPG while my opponent is waiting for my response. That alone may be a sad reason to stop doing something. I admit it.

Also, the idea of other people attacking my character out of the blue scares me. See, I don't like really powerful guys. I like my down to Earth characters. Yes my main character is a witch with fluxuating power levels, but I really play her down for fear of over powering. Like, if your character can attack at the speed of light, then my guy is dead. I do not have any characters that can defend that fast. Nor do I wan't one who can. For me, healing factor or flying are pretty neat powers.

Anyway, I want to come back to RPG, because I do enjoy it. And hopefully my characters won't be devoured/thrown into space/liquified. ^_^

I think you would enjoy RPs rather than fights, me and @pyrogram do a bunch of them, there are never any player vs player fights, its more two characters having an adventure together and two writers co-writing a story.

@wildvine: Lets do some 'constructive' rping, not all interactions are battles :)

That is the bulk of my experience. Yes. But I was informed the possibility of attack exists, and to refuse to fight would brand me as anti-social in the forum.

@wildvine: Aaah okay, honestly I find fights a tiny bit boring, Hero A has ATTEMPTED to hit hero B with sonic super duper laser launcher, Hero B deflects it with Super Superior Sonic Shield and so on.

Yes, but if it happens, and if hero B (My character) didn't have shield deflector whatevers, then they are dead. Cause they can't suddenly have deflector whatevers. And its worse when someone realizes they just smashed your guy, and offer you a pity way out.

Remember the term Closed RP, Me and you have done loads of them, and Me and @amazingangel have done loads, if you don't fancy fighting just stick to your inner circles ^_^

Again, I don't want to be anti-social. I like meeting new people.

@wildvine: I recently broke into proper big events with a "Media" war, Involving no fighting and that was with Anthony_Stark, It's not all about fighting to meet new people :P

I meant, I want to do more then closed RP's, but I don't want my characters to be smashed by world breakers. That's not asking too much I don't think.

@wildvine: It's all about how you write, nobody can dictate your character for you, and nobody will attack with a speed of light hit unless you can defend, I have not seen anybody do that for no reason or if they KNOW you can defend against it.

You could have told me that back when you were scaring the bejeezus out of me pal.

@wildvine: Some of the best RPGers were street levelers, sorry to name drop @aiden_cross had a low level character ( I think ) who survived fights with Gods for example. Same with zaniel without powers, He survived fighting people much stronger.

@pyrogram: leave me out of this, i don't RP anymore :p

But yes, no need to worry. Everyone takes into account each others character. Besides, even if someone attacks you don't have to fight. There are plenty of options: start a cunning dialogue, send in henchmen to do your fighting, run away/escape. Etc.

Awwww :( Never let stuff like that stop you! You're a fantastic writer.

Fights are definitely not for everybody (they really aren't my cup of tea) and you're not obligated to write anything that you don't want to!

And Aiden is right, as (almost) always.

I always have my bio opened at the same time as a fight, just in case..........just kidding...........maybe.

@nerx: Thanks honey. But I'll never rpg again

Posted by Auralaria

D'aww! That sounds so sweet! Adawable!

Okay, serious up. A little. What you do then is have another person follow you around everywhere, that way if something breaks out, THAT person will help you.

Okay, so not always. I think everything doesn't always fight. Sometimes there's media war, rather than punch and stuff.

@auralaria: I was going to offer her that, but she would be insulted >_>
