Just like Conall, I was gone for a long time and still have not really returned. I play with friends in a medieval RP sim (in several ones, actually), but the mainsim we are in is having a downtime right now, a really bad one. So, out of sheer boredom, one of them convinced me to try Gor again.
Honestly, when I left Gor, I was so bored with it, not even the best of the best roleplayers could keep me there, even though I had tried to give my char's story a new twist and make it interesting again by letting her being caught and enslaved completely. I would have never thought I would get back at it, hell, I even deleted my stuff partially. IC, my char is considered a runaway slave from Salernum who got caught by a random man in the woods, not far from her camp where she wanted to go again.
And yes, I feel misplaced in Gor. I have a hard time to start RP, I lurk around dock when my friend (her master) isnt around. When he's around, its fun. Without him, I am worried about every step I do, trying to work out scenarios why my char wouldn't remain in an empty sim but instead go somewhere else. So, yeah. I am having mixed feelings.
And I am -still- asking myself: Why can't I just like Urban RPs, like everyone else? My problem would be solved within a second.
