    Roleplay Discussions

    I used to RP a lot, but I've pretty much retired from it. Why? See below: I struggled a lot to keep up with RPs with 10+ people where it's very easy to get lost in the dust unless you RP 24/7. Then there are the one on one posts that go on for pages meaning waddling through pages of stuff that has nothing to do with your character. Next there were just bad rp-ers that got on my nerves. One short sentence cannot possibly describe everything your character is doing. Other players constantly took over my characters even when I complained. Still others just completely ignored my characters when I attempted to interact with them. Very frustrating. Lastly, right now I just lack the attention span to RP for any long amounts of time. When I can't even get my muses to cooperate with me for drabble writing, I definitely don't have the attention span to stay with an RP. RPs I like: Fantasy hands down. Modern is too close to real life which I'm trying to take a break from and I never got into SciFi all that much.

    How do you like your Pairings?

    Though Lars only calls Rhen a dog in the very beginning before his character development and I believe he even apologizes for acting like a jerk which Rhen accepted. I mean, it's pretty much confirmed they've remained good friends even while Rhen's getting slavery abolished IIRC. Dameon being a gentleman was akin to Gyendal's wooing of Mel. Red herrings seemingly abound in both cases though apparently only true in one of them.

    @theone: "but the setting of the Old age here on Earth is the same as that of Aveyond, sans the magic and the demons" ^ I again point to my statement concerning rules and how real life rules do NOT apply to a fantasy world like AV. We cannot assume any of our rules applies to theirs. I'm not saying AV4 has to have a gay pairing. I'd like to see one but I know the likelihood of that happening is low to non-existent and I've accepted that. But you canNOT say that the AV world is for/against gays simply because there's no evidence either way.

    How do you like your Pairings?

    "Aveyond, as in the world, is set in Medieval times. That's a big no-no setting for a gay pairing. " ^ er no. Aveyond is set in Aveyond times. Medieval time rules only apply to settings that are actually in our world during medieval times. Clearly, AV is in it's own little world and runs on its own rules so whatever rules we follow in our world doesn't necessarily apply there. See the continents constant reconstruction every few centuries. That did not happen during the medieval times. Or for a more serious example: marrying for love. In medieval times, you married to extend your family's wealth or keep the wealth in the family. Love didn't mean anything. Nothing in the games suggests gay pairings are bashed in the AV world.

    How do you like your Pairings?

    "Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against straight pairings, but a possible gay/lesbian romance in an RPG would be awesome." <- This. One of the reasons why I liked Bioware games so much. Pairings I like: Well, lesbians/Gay ones (Teijal/Rhen) first. I do subtext hunting often enough that it makes L/G couples more interesting to me than straight. Doesn't help if the subtext couple in question always interacts with each other and any opposite sex partner usually are one night stands. Romance to develop: Throughout the game and there's meaningful interactions between charas. Also, if romance is to happen, than drop hints that there something between said characters. Doesn't have to be Anvil-grade screaming from the rooftops. Subtlety works wonders. It's a big reason why I prefer Lars/Rhen to Dameon/Rhen. Dameon came in late in the game and the love declarations were so left field. Lars/Rhen at first despised each other but gradually came to respect each other and Lars even showed some jealously toward Dameon. No preference on the PC status other than they interact a lot. "Do you like having a choice of who someone should be with? Collecting gifts or doing little things to influence attraction between people? Love triangles, with a little jealousy thrown in?" ^Yes to all of that. It makes the player more invested in the romance, even more so if breaking up with someone to get with another has lasting consequences for the game. Pairing personalities I prefer: Not sure. It ranges from being the couple clashing like no tomorrow (even to the point of trying to kill each other and being mortal enemies) to awkwardly talking about shoes/hair/science and giving sideway glances. Common denominator usually is that none of the people in the coupling are weak and they had personalities. Reason why Ean/Iya was so boring to me was because both characters are wallflowers and uninteresting. They don't have Rhen's rawr, Talia's witchiness, or Mel's spunk.

    Random Questions about RMXP

    4. How detailed is the picture and how much is it getting resized? If you're taking a detailed picture that's 1000 pixels and shrinking it to 48, there's going to be a lot of distortion any way you do it. You can fix it partially with sharpening/tweaking contrast in GIMP/photoshop, but it really depends on the size/details of the pic and how much work you want to do.

    How do you like your Endings?

    I don't care if an ending is happy, bittersweet, or pure angst. I care it's well written, has closure, answers questions instead of raising more (especially if it's the end of a trilogy), doesn't mess up the game's universe as we know it, and doesn't pull a deus ex machine out of nowhere. Do I regret playing a game that has a bad ending? Yes. I put in hours of my time into a game that doesn't deliver. It feels like a betrayal to fall in love with the characters and than have a big middle finger be your ending. And for the love of goddess: DO NOT PUT A, "Buy our DLCs!" AS THE LAST SCREEN OF AN ALREADY BAD ENDING. That's just rubbing salt into gaping wounds. Why yes, I'm still bitter over Mass Effect 3 ending. I haven't touched it or any of the ME series since I finished it several months ago. The ending basically amounted to "Nothing you did matter. Everything is screwed." *flips table*

    Er, I never said I felt bad/sad about them. I have acknowledged they are bad and moved on to other things I enjoy more, like photomanipping.
