- knowledge of what goes on in other sims (from announcements, alting, etc). In the books communications are scarce,
- the easiness to build a character (in the books being a tarnsman depends on really many hard issues, including the tarn accepting the rider. In SL, well all you need to do is buy a tarn)

I mean, I do get that many here are engaged in the 'I am mo btb!'-contest and would want to vote for an option that has 'close to the books' in it, but really, it seems slightly insane to want to RP the books themselves, the characters in them, the stories in them. Slightly childish, even. "I want to be Darth Vader." "And I want to be Han Solo!" "And I'll be Han Solo's long lost son!"
RP should be Close to the books, with freedom of making one's character
Glaucon wrote:Well, in that case it would be hard to distinguish the second option from the last one. Or rather... I would not really know how to compare the two. RP-ing close to the books can mean a lot of things. As I would read it, it would mean sticking to the world, theme and culture, and letting those inform your character. But since that is another option, and, it would appear, on the other end of the spectrum, I don't think she meant that. Not sure.
