    Have you considered the "RP Reality requirement: moderate" aspect yet? I haven't looked into this very much myself, but I think it simply means that your RP has to follow the guidelines set by the amount of people. For example, if you have two or three people in a scene flying around or transforming, since the RP Reality requirement is set low, they can.

    The issue that was happening is from when you have two or three people making up spells amongst a crowd of thirty people, and the rest of the group don't believe in the spells. If you can gather twenty or thirty people in a public area who all want to role play the same thing and have two or three people there that don't, I'd say the role player's win.

    On a separate topic, I never understood why magic and abilities are seen as so essential to role playing. Back when Jester was a younger player he used to hang out in Cryxus' pub, getting drunk and starting wars with chairs for moving when he tried to sit down, or attempting to sing Bohemian Rhapsody with Granos. To me that was fun role playing.

    EXACTLY! my point here is that i want the fun rp to start up again. when i first started there was rp in almost EVERY room and now it takes forever to find someone to rp with!

    I think, everything that matters can be found in this reply... shows the main problems what have caused that undesirable difference in RP, and in the community at all.


    We should not judge the others, telling our opinions or feelings on whether his/her role is good or not - simply we can't, it's relative.
    We are here only to form ideas, make suggestions and talk about... not someone's role exactly, but about all of us, the whole MD people - so, RP in general.

    Better not to RP just for yourself and to simply enjoy it. RP for & with the others as well.

    Very wise remark Lewas. and one i was happy to read.

    Me? Jealous?

    Far from it. I have no reason to be jealous of a child.

    Like i said, stop trying to start a fight in the Forum....

    Me? Jealous?

    Far from it. I have no reason to be jealous of a child.

    I second what Indyra said, and what plenty others have told me:
    [b]If you want something done, don't sit here on the forum whining about it. Get out there and do it, deal with the repercussions later.[/b]

    You can EASILY arrange things that can be done. I mean... hell, when Renavoid was still around, in that last RP shot, HOW MANY of you people stepped up to Rp? Hm? Very few, if I remember correctly. Oh, and with this Abra thing? How many are ACTUALLY getting involved with it now? Again, as far as I can tell... very few.

    So the issue is not just "oh Rp is dying, wah wah wah" its: "People don't care any more." Or, "People only Rp for the limelight and to get noticed, to get all the little trinkets and jewels they can find for their 'role.'

    So maybe there IS a mix between the two, but you can't simply blame that Rp is dying because Rp is dying. Rp is dying because people just don't care any more. No one is wanting to do anything-- from what I have also heard, dunno how true this is, but supposedly, the Al is what gave people a reason to do this. I don't completely agree. This goes along with what I said in the third quotations.

    You what you need. You just have to organize it in a fashion that people are interested, and gee... I don't know, maybe even take part?

    *reply to the second part* That is exactly what we are trying to say Curiose, Lack of caring to do rping the right way.

    Keida, becareful. We are not aloud to post for other people. Read Chewy's rules on that.

    I've never understood why people have to take pot-shots at other people. Shows their level of maturity.

    OH! my apologies, i did not know that.

  5. [quote name='Curiose' timestamp='1306467724' post='85217']
    So, Keida, in your opinion good rp is making multiple alts and causing needless drama? Especially in your little area by the lake, having multiple babies in a rash that seems highly unrealistic, and falling in love with a multitude of men?

    Excuse me, but that is not role play.
    I see that as trash.

    But that's just me.

    I knew you would single me out Curiose.

    and conviently you left out where i said that i am trying to get better, and just so you know, i only have one baby. Dont try to start arguments on this forum post that only shows jealousy. and its not pretty.

    Am I the only one who thinks MD got better, rather than worse as you all say? :P
    Except saying that, I don't want to interfere in your... discussions... :P I already said too much I have on the subject on too much topics, about your "definitions" of roleplay.

    Md has gotten better in every way EXCEPT rp. Personally i fell in love with MD BECAUSE of the rp. and it is getting harder and harder to find good rpers

    The people make up Md.without the people The MD worls would not last long.

    Sounds interesting... I would try this out.
    Anyway, it's a bit similar to the citizenship system, isn't it?

    From NewPower:

    RE:RE:The role playing.
    Ok, im working on this , i dont want to be the only working. The idea is, to have a role since from the start. IF you reach mp5 you have to leave the group. And start the CARRIER .It seems more like a school system, not like citizenship. Lets take it like you are less than 18 year and you go to school. If you reach the mp5 you pass 18 years and you are an "adult" now. I think that you should choose also a school like( MB school, GG school ect) .

    also from NewPower

    I have another idea, what about if they get divided into schools , i mean the 4 mainlands schools . The get some questions(after a week, after they learn something how the things goes in MB) and when they reach mp4 they can change the mainland(if they want) . It's a bit like, *Harry Potter* Tell me if you like this idea .

    All in all, no god-mod, no predefined classes (now these are secondary topics here) Only the same various, but so fantastic role-playing community as it was once ago... in my first times here, I remember it well. Since I've returned to MD after months - I can feel a difference... so, bringing the community together in many other ways, that's the point mainly, I suppose.

    And... erm, Windy, a pub is just always welcome to me. I mean, you'll have my support as a frequenter :D
    Thank you Lewas! THAT is the point i am trying to make!! I left for a few months as well and have seen a HUGE difference in md as i returned! it makes me sad to see how MD has become (COMPARED!!!!!!) to how it used to be.

    DO NOT mistake, MD has gotten better in other ways, but RP has gotten bad.

  9. From NewPower

    The role playing.
    I cannot get the validation code to reply ,anyway, what about when players are mp3 they can be divided in small groups, a group with 3 players. Its like a family, they can be divided when they reach mp5 and they can tell also spoilers to each other. I mean, if the game creates a council, which chooses the name of the "family" which depends by the name of the players like: Dark magician , ghost and " Crazy wizard" The name of this family is "sinister magicians" so they get a role in the first day of playing, it makes the game much more interesting, and the name of the family appear on the profile. The game could tell they a "little " secret about the realm, that depends by the name of the players, family ,ect.
    I dont know, but this seems interesting and MAKES the game more interesting. What do you thing, I will work more on this. :)

    I agree Windy, I would love to see "The Wind and Rain Pub". A real pub with the artwork to go with it, in an new person accessible location, where people can come drink, socialize and RP. I think it would be great!

    It would be nice if the pub also had items that can be clicked on. This way, some of the people that have access to write scripts for them could make the pub more interractive. Perhaps clicking on a bar tap item would say that you just filled your glass with delicious frosty beer.

    I don't know if this can be done or I'm reaching here, but perhaps Mur could make it even more fun by making items interract with your stats. So for example, you might be able to come drink beer there (say twice a day) and each time it adds a little temporary vitality (as you fill your belly you feel better). But once you drink your third mug of beer, you now get a negative modifier to your initiative for 20 minutes (since you got drunk!). Maybe the more you drink the more negative modifiers you get. Or maybe it takes more AP to move around the drunker you get.

    So nothing permament to your stats, but potentially fun. Maybe even a tag or something to show that you're drunk. Maybe as you walk around drunk, the people see "Esmaralda just stumbled into the room, the scent of alcohol emanating strongly from her".

    Just some random ideas. =)

    Thats an AMAZING IDEA!!!!!!!

    So all you want is no god mod??? Then dont RP with people that god mod stuff. I still fail to see a problem, a suggestion and the root of the problem. Except the classes suggestion which actually limits the RP rather than enhancing it. I might want to be a junky. Lets create an addicts class, a scarf makers class, a barwomans class etc etc etc

    No, what we are trying to do is bring rping Together, as it used to be. As a community once more

    If you look on Zleiphniers papers, he has information on the subject. For example, let's say that your character is going to strike another character. You cannot say, "hits player A and he falls to the ground" that is what is called God-modding. The correct way is " aim's fist at Player A's jaw". this gives player a to respond, either to dodge or to allow the hit. It is very complicated. I've been guilty at God-modding. I've gone out of my way to correct my mistakes in this area.

    I also am trying to better my rp and have made mistakes, ive also participated in some rp because i either A) thought it was funny, or B) wanted to have a little fun.

    But now i am trying to have serious rp brought back and as windy is, im trying to fix my mistakes.

  13. [quote name='TTLexceeded' timestamp='1306430284' post='85157']
    Ehm I dont see you suggesting anything or actually finding the root of the problem, if there is a problem. All i can see is that your pub has no Role Players... Your problem.
    *coughs* Your idea of roleplaying is classes?????? and you even suggest there is a correct way to roleplay. Strike 1

    Also please enlighten me. What is the wrong and the right way to RP? For example your RP (Keida) to me looks rediculous because it disregards the reality of MD. Is your RP wrong? No offense just making a point.

    i ment bringing RP back TOGETHER, i didnt mean that anybodies rp was wrong.
