Yes its something which I recommend to be read by everyone from the guild so we can keep a high quality RP status and make it bit more interesting
Since our RP style is considered mostly hostile and we RP (mostly) with our own faction we need to use various emotes. Now how we do that without PRPing (power role playing) or using god emotes. Just a little warning before you start reading further , to this guide will mostly good RPers react and thats why you will need to handle the other RPers who are just too imba to let their chars take any damage.
So what here is needed some patience and you will soon find out that it can be a lot of fun as well once you found good RPers around you.Proper emoting
As you guys know we can use various emotes to express our characters more complex feelings and actions though the /e system.
Now there are some simple rules
for this, we have countless situations where we need to threat, abduct , torture and sometimes IC kill some char. Of course very few people let there chars get somehow damaged considering they are the greatest and strongest.
For example :
((We try to abduct a char, we outnumber him/her and we know he/she is a good RPer who can properly work out such situations, now the key is to keep it realistic and logical))
Victim: Leave me alone you bastards!
Pirate X: Dont struggle or ye get hurt!
((Now well to make it a bit more short, after a lil talk we could get to business, as I mentioned before keep it realistic so having the victim surrounded will make escape plans harder))
Pirate Y: Now you come with us!
to grab Victim and make him stand still.
((Using simple tries
before a emote where we act with the Victim gives him options to react))
Victim: Get of me!
/e struggles managing to escape the Pirate's grab.
((Thats one way to handle it if hes not agreeing to get captured, that doesnt mean hes not realistic, a little fight is normal and after a RP duel for example he would act more into following Pirate Y))
Victim: NO...please leave me alone!
/e struggles but is obviously too weak to fight.
((This is a example for him reacting properly on a proper emote
From now on we can continue but again considering and keeping in mind how to do it))
This is a short description how to handle various situations properly without getting into silly god emotes from both sides and yells of all sorts and a OOC flame on whisp or forums later.
Now take in consideration as well that IF YOU
are in such a situation you have to react the same logical and realistic way! Outnumbered and surrounded? They try to hurt you? Stay realistic but look out for the chances where you can escape of course.
RP is about fun and never forget this, many people RP their characters invincible and not touch able because of game mechanics. Dont take such people serious because they normally insult you just IC and walk after you making you loosing your patience.
Anyway I will keep on talking in guild char about these issues and I hope we can raise our RP level (if there exists something like this) that way.
