I don't think expect and want are that much different in this sense.
If we are talking one on one time, 20% of total online time is reasonable. If we are talking RPing in group scenes together, I would hope it is more like 50%. Otherwise, why even bother? But, like Victor, I also expect any RP partners to make their own RP outside of our story too. I don't want to be the sole source of RP for anyone. And it is for this reason that I would even encourage someone to make an alt that is unrelated to our story if they tend to just sit and wait for me.
Had just that situation not too long ago and I am the first to admit that if I had the choice between:
A) My RP partner plays with me and on another character when I am not here.
B) My RP partner plays with me and on the same character when I am not here.
I'd honestly prefer B if I can choose freely. Because it takes the same line as the whole concept of not wanting to be the owner of a slave that is only known to ME and completely alien to the rest of the sim I am playing on.
@Auron I would say personally those stats are pretty close to what I see goes on my rp in general, even higher than that for group rp currently since the traffic of the sim that my slave character is a part of is not as high in US nights. Sometimes for me the one on one is even less than 20%. With a slave character, I could see it being higher than that when one plays on THAT character. So much of your story is integrated into your owners'.
Because of this I alt, proudly and well, either on other sims or even in other genres. Or I just tool around styling my avatar. I am still hoping for my rp dream in Gor of being in an arranged companionship where we each had very, very seperate love lives. Oh..the drama, scandal and intrigue this could create!
Victor you have never played a female slave have you.
All kidding aside I completely agree that the slave character should at least make an effort to be on sim when you aren't around. But if the rp is limited to "go get me a drink, slave" whats the fun in that?
