The RPers are a special protected class of people in every game. They cry and things happen. That's why most games have separate RP servers, so they can go there to pretend to be dragon vampires from Tau Sigma or whatever and not infect the normal people with their garbage. RP servers are like a Zoo version of a mental institution where you can go watch broken people in their natural habitat, dudes pretending to be girls having sex with other dudes pretending to be girls.

Don't know, but even so it's not the same as you can just hop into it. Now, if you had to create characters specific to a server it would be a different thing. Leveling up and gearing a character JUST to grief RPers takes some serious dedication.

I still find this super funny how gullible you actually are.

 

PKing in this is a acceptable game mechanic and it dosent matter how many times you kill the same person due to player killing is allowed and role players are still normal players that are not above the simple in game mechanics.

 

You got trolled by the GM's over something that in no way can or will get you banned as player killing is a in game mechanic.

So you're telling me you would have ignored the lead GM's request? i see you like to live dangerously. you should go red.

I had school works announced with the same intonation (the prof knew I was doing some D&D out of school) and it was serious work.

Better be safe than sorry in this case.

I'm not here to argue, or flail around limply, or any of that kind of stuff.  For the most part I've left this topic alone because the sad truth is: This wouldn't have spiraled out of control because people wouldn't stop feeding into it.  That's the only reason all of this has happened.  Certain members ran around early on like headless chickens when the rest of us stayed silent and said that PKing isn't against the rules, he can't be banned for it.  Where the issues came in was the spamming in chat to disrupt organized events (in safezones).  While annoying and disruptive at times, he's promised to stop spamming "DEATH TO RPers" when others are roleplaying.  As far as I'm concerned if he stops doing that and if that's all that was happening—then it'd be "whatever".

Now what some don't know is that he has been extremely dedicated to this from the beginning, for whatever reason.  He was a member of one of our communities for god knows how long just sitting there in silence looking for people to go after.  Maybe he was just bored, but sending a bunch of the people from his guild to try to get information about RP events, taunt, and spam was also pretty low.  That is more of what most think was going too far.  Nobody gives a shit about the PKing beyond it being a minor annoyance.

To give an idea of a timeline of this, we configured a bot in one of the roleplay discords to announce people joining so that we could properly welcome them and help them get settled in mid-January.  He had joined before that.  I feel like the entirety of the story isn't being told here.  This guy's obsessed with roleplayers and roleplay in general, to an honestly confusing degree.  While flattering—it's really goddamn weird too.  Who cares that much?  Unless he's been a roleplayer this entire time who got annoyed at the community, which is possible I suppose.  We certainly aren't perfect.

Regardless—It's run it's course, and even those who have stayed silent about this and tried to let it die are getting tired.  Some people have even gone as far to say that they don't want to roleplay anymore due to the newfound stigma and knowing they may be targeted for showing up to an RP event or even just roleplaying publicly.  And it isn't just Dremlock anymore.  It's that other people are joining in day-after-day and articles like this really just make it worse for those of us who kept our heads down and tried to ignore it and weren't so booty-bothered over the PKing.  It would be nice if this could just end and we could all respectively move on.  Wishful thinking, I know, but it's getting tiring and less-and-less fun every day it drags on.  It's been 3 weeks now.

This is all I'm adding to the topic because, as I said, I just want this to die.  I'm not here to continue this, just to share my perspective of things and leave it to go whatever direction it will.  Hopefully I'll be able to continue writing stories with people and enjoying the game in this particular way without others somehow finding a problem with that.

The RPers are a special protected class of people in every game. They cry and things happen. That's why most games have separate RP servers, so they can go there to pretend to be dragon vampires from Tau Sigma or whatever and not infect the normal people with their garbage. RP servers are like a Zoo version of a mental institution where you can go watch broken people in their natural habitat, dudes pretending to be girls having sex with other dudes pretending to be girls.

If this is how RP worked in every single instance across the planet—sure, I can understand the attitude.  But when people base their entire view of something on a meme (which is -----ing hilarious, by the way, we reference it all the time) it shows.  So, I'd like to inform.

On the topic of roleplay—usually moreso than not, us roleplayers are not a "special protected class" of people.  We're most often in fact entirely ignored by the moderation community and game design in of itself (we're lucky to get /me commands), which is something we're used to.  We all understand very well that we aren't the majority and that the game cannot revolve around us.  Yes, some people are self-entitled and think the game should revolve around them, but you get that in every single sub-community of a game.  Up until now I was willing to not insult anyone's intelligence and assume they could understand that.  But, no good deed goes unpunished.

Yes, some RP scenes are very bad.  And very cringey.  There's no denying that.  But the majority of RPers in this game aren't in it for the things you stated above.  Most are looking to do what RP is about at its core—Writing a story with others.  That's it.  No need for reading further into it because for most there isn't much else there.  People want to create characters and storylines and write with eachother in a mutual setting.  Once you start ascribing anything else to it, you're getting into sub-sections of roleplay.

RPers sometimes even make fun of other RPers.  We aren't some religious order swearing to uphold principles.  Again, thought that'd be clear but evidently it isn't to some.

You're wasting your time Mae.. MMO Troll is just a troll, a non-lifer that waste 100% of his time online using the Velia NPC to hunt down rpers...he is so obsessed with it to the point to get all name, family name and guilds to hunt every single one, of course doing hate speech on General/Channel and World serve.

you banned me from the RP discord literally less than 24 hours after i joined. 

Basically about a week ago I decided. Hey imma go kill ppl. Joined RP discord. Said Death to RPers a few times THAT DAY. And got immediately banned. You seem a bit paranoid. Perhaps you're buying into this too much as well. 

As for the rest of that post. That was long as -----. Can I get a tl;dr? 

EDIT:

Read the rest of it. LOL. wow you really are paranoid. This just keeps getting more hilarious by the second. 

the RP community was woefully under prepared for this

You didn't show up in the "Welcome" messages at all, which have been functioning since mid-January, which prompted that.  If I'm mistaken about that, then sorry, I don't have admin privileges if those can actually check how long someone was in.  The bot may have missed you or something.  Given Discord's recent bugs all over the place it's entirely possible.  So, sorry if that's a mistaken belief, I'll take that into account.

It definitely wasn't a week ago, though.  It was 3 weeks ago.  January (March, lmao, was talking about January too much) 11th is when you were banned.

And yeah, some people are extremely over-the-top and paranoid about this.  I can definitely agree with that, some people have been extremely cringy and obnoxious about it.  Like I said, I've kept my head down and haven't done much of anything.  Trust me, I really don't care about the stuff you've done on a personal level beyond it being mildly annoying—Which is whatever.  It's more of the long-term effect you seem to be causing that's concerning me.  If it all dies down, it'll be fine.  I just wanted to state my concerns, please don't try to read into it more than it has to be.

And no, I'm really not imagining this changing things.  You have copycats now, dude.  I don't know if you understand the impact of the things you're having but some people are going far enough to say some pretty heinous shit that's definitely against the ToS.  You really aren't involved in the community so you don't know all that goes down, it'd be nice if you could at least try to understand where some of us are coming from and not throw us all under the bus with the people who are generally just as annoying in their own way.

immediate panic. Good strategy Karn. The weird thing is, you are always the quickest to get upset by my posts on the forum about this, yet I have no idea who you are. I must have killed you or something. But let's be honest, I've killed so many people by now it's hard remember them. 

 

COLOSSAL errors made by the RP community:

1) Crying about it. reporting it. In general relying on others to solve this problem for them.

Not part of the RP community so I'm indifferent about that particular group, however, what's kinda shocking is the dimension of this kind of griefing. That and the fact that some news site even decides to report about it - how low can they possible fall. But then again, one can only write so much about grinding and RNG :D

Pretty pathetic overall.

Me? Upset?No, i'm just saying facts, you know where every single RPlayer is outside Heidel, so my theory is.. you have every single RPlayer name in a notepad, get in your  Alt Noecchi, goes to Velia and use the NPC in the tavern to get their location and goes there to kil. That kind a obsession you know.
