Roleplay request

Post by Snudge » 2012-07-29

Thanks to fingers, we all had a great event today. With all the structures out I did notice something interesting though. People don't seem to be roleplaying their interactions with a structure properly. If you are outside a structure, you cannot see over the walls or through them. Please don't come running toward a structure yelling "watch your back" to the people inside. You have no way of knowing what is going on inside. The reverse goes for the people inside. If you are guarding the front gate, you cannot see what is going on, on the exterior of the back wall. That you come running up and thrusting spears at someone roleplaying climb walls, when you clearly could not have known they were there from your position at the front gate. Its just poor form.

I'm asking the realm as a whole to please try to roleplay your interactions with structures better.

Again a thank you to fingers for running today's event. It was a good time.

Or we could go to WYSIWYG structures with walls (tarp/pastic/sheets etc)...

i think wysiwyg is the way to go, assume that you have a spy on the inside of the keep or something. roleplaying ignorance only rewards those who choose to skirt the "rp code" i would rather bench it and be done with it.

Snudge,
While I agree with you, it is going to be a difficult thing for people to ignore those coming up behind them with the rope-walls we use commonly. The solution that I can think of off the top of my head, that would minimize this issue would be to use the black tarp walls that Exsilium(SP?) uses for their camp at campouts. Make sure there is a few feet between the ground and the tarp so ppl can crawl under to climb walls and then you have a way for ppl to not see one another unless they get close to the wall's edge or blantantly cheat and go to the ground and look for crawlers. Probly costly, but may be something to look into for the future.

I think you're probably right Wulfvin. I may just test this out come the September campout

Yeah, I dunno about everybody else, but Tom, my faithful battle falcon is always flying over structures for me and I have a spell that lets me constantly see through his eyes. I mean... I thought everybody had one!

While I wish that could be the case, I think people are far to interested in the reward of winning rather than the reward of awesome role playing. Though perhaps someone could set up a design contest to make the cost effective, portable, opaque structures to use an in-game obstacles.

I have seen some awesome walls made of grey fabric that were painted to look like stone walls. You can do a lot of things that make your camp look awesome and serve their purpose at the same time.
