Acting the way your character would act in the world of Zalanthas is a requirement. You don't get to pick and choose which docs you want to follow based on your own feelings or opinion.
QuoteI don't wish we would follow the docs more. I wish we would change the docs, and then follow THOSE docs.
Quote from: Armaddict on December 03, 2017, 12:26:36 AMIn the aforementioned scenario, I'd say the problematic part was producing a virtual partner; in terms of game actions, that is someone your character cares about and is influenced by, but is untouchable by means of anyone else in the game.
Quote from: Is FridayIf you ever hassle me IC for not playing much that means that I'm going to play even less or I'll forever write you off as a neckbeard chained to his computer. So don't be a dick.
QuoteGiven that Zalanthas is a place with broad attitudes towards sexuality, it is common to see Zalanthans have multiple sex partners. While your character may be in a monogamous relationship with another character, understand that as a commoner, this does not deserve (and should not get) formalized recognition by the powers that be. Your character also should not expect anything for deciding to limit his or her current sexual focus to one person. Any commoner relationship is not formalized. This means that there are no such things as inheritance laws governing who gets your character's things if they die, nor are there divorce laws concerning who gets which half of things if the couple splits up. Zalanthan commoners are NOT highborn, and this is one area in which that should be very clear.

Quote from: Grapes on December 04, 2017, 06:04:49 AMJealousy plots are dumb. If you're playing a monogamistic character and your character's mate cheates on them, then whatever, let it go, they did your PC a favor by proving themselves untrustworthy by saying one thing and doing another. Meanwhile you can be focusing on your plot to murder Amos for screwing with your order of widgets, as opposed to wasting everyone's time with slobbering over a failed relationship like a toothless dog with a hunk of meat.

One experience left such a bad taste in my mouth, and that was a recent attempt at "romantic roleplay." The whole "oh I want you to be only mine, and I promise to change my ways and not run around on you, I want you all to myself" stuff was just so - blech. It was stifling. It was even worse when "you can't sleep with anyone else" became "you can't be close pals with anyone else." I basically said fuck that, and ended up with someone else who had no problem screwing other PCs, and my PC was fine with it because that is the setting of the game. Eventually my PC was murdered, I suspect by the jealous ex (though I never found out who killed her or why).
Quote from: Refugee on December 04, 2017, 11:59:06 AMPeople like conflict as long as it's just exactly the conflict -they- want.I suggest a little tolerance toward RP that other people enjoy, even if you don't enjoy it. Then you have a right to expect tolerance toward RP that you like that others don't.There's an awful lot of "don't say this, don't do this, everything other than what I do is wrong or stupid" on the GDB these days. It's really a turnoff.There are games where everyone playing will play just like you want. Hundreds of them. They are called solo games. Play what you want. React how your PC would react to whatever some other player serves to you. Cooperate with developing the story. Let your PC live their lives and let other PCs live theirs. Or not live their lives, however it works out...
Quote from: The Lonely Hunter on December 04, 2017, 03:11:28 PMThis has gotten off topic and I apologize for contributing to that but I would like to point out that, without making a specific reference, you can not pick and choose what documentation you would like to follow. Despite the current trend just because you, as the player, don't like something does not permit you to do whatever you want and disregarding documentation is against the rules.
