Quote from: Strongheart on September 02, 2017, 11:28:42 AMWhile these stereotypes exist for a reason, I think it is best to use the RP doc as a guideline rather than a staple of rules that must be followed unless it is a literal racial limitation. For example, I have seen elves who are stuck-up pricks, thieves to their core, silent conniving bastards, or a complete romantic for family, each being an intricate part of the elf RP docs. Another example would be that just because a dwarf is single-minded it does not make them unwise, because in a sense they are more methodical. We could go onto how half-elves are either emotional wrecks or emos, or how muls are pissed off at life because they are infertile, but I digress. I love that you are discussing such specifics, Hi Tech Lowlife, and glad to see you post.

Quote from: Grapes on September 02, 2017, 04:22:34 PMDwarves are not machines, when playing a dwarf, be ready to make some really dumb, potentially fatal mistakes and miscalculations, and it will be easy-ish to be deceived as well.

Quote from: Inks on September 04, 2017, 11:16:29 AMDwarves have the most alien mindset (in my opinion) of all the playable races, focus above all. Which is why I think picking a focus that you as a player will enjoy pursuing is so important. It is their bread and butter in all things, and if that is to become a dwarven spymaster you can be sure they will plan their actions and lies in advance meticulously.

I've also noticed it tends to be the primary reason some players have voiced the opinion that perhaps they should be a karma race rather than baseline.But assuming the idea of dwarves not being good at producing short-notice deception is a given, is that something that'd come to be somewhat known amongst other races, having lived alongside dwarves for X amount of time? I can't say I've ever seen the issue touched on besides in the docs.

Quote from: Hauwke on October 18, 2017, 07:48:45 PMIf it was the focus of the dwarf to do that? I would say that they could have a slight bonus to the percent chance, at least in my view of it. Only because by their very nature, dwarves are more driven than just about any human could possibly hope to be.On the flip side, as the Evil Lettuce says, a human could be considered to have more chance to infiltrate the group in the first place, being that they are in fact human and all.That being said, a dwarf could maybe get itself made into a slave for the purpose of infiltration so... Idk.
