Yeah, none of the above. A good chunk of the folks I know and rped with back in the day didn't even use poseballs regularly, though admittedly that's in part because of the gay!panic for some. Don't cam, so... no, and while I skype with my friends and rp partners it's just chatting and not fucking (with one comically regrettable exception once, oy). I could entirely do without meters, ever, since my combat/action is rped and not pewpewed (for that I go to wow or gw2).

As for the ooc chat? It's nice, but it's not really something that would make me stay or leave a sim. Hochburg had an ooc chat and I barely ever talked there; Kaelus, conversely, I was usually pretty active. Just varies depending on who's around I guess, but that's not something I look for in a sim.

So basically... none of that. When I'm on the market for an RP sim (and I'm not in Gor now so really, *any* genre of RP sim), I want to know that the RP is good (first and foremost) and... secondarily, that there's a nice build. ;)
And that was that.

:grind: :grind: :lips: :lips: :lips:

OOC, meh, I'll save that for IMs.

The combat one, nope, I hate raids. I tend to get stuck in walls, etc. when I try to run away and hide. And with a cast on my right hand for a few more weeks, moving that quick ain't gonna happen.


Hugs the SLUT woman!!! Heya Beth!!

Just one question...Isn't that role play? :lips: :grind:

I think Anarch changed the OP a bit to mean what type of roleplay do you want (despite including camming etc still) in his follow on response. I went from "none of the above" to selecting the first two options.

when i'm not babysitting and doing administrative work on the sims and continent, I think roleplaying is fine for me. but the non-rp interests have more to do with experimenting with Viking era settings and concepts and being a flashpoint and a source of information gathering for a greater story project outside of this game. in this case, i'm answering to a higher source, something much bigger and beyond my own immediate interests inworld.

I replied "none of the above"....

OOC chat is fine, I don't remember when it broke my immersion in role play, and when I RP with another para-rper, often, Im chatting in IMs, chat group, or reading forums between two posts :)

Erotica? I guess that if we are allergic to the omnipresent sexual tension there is in the books, Gor is maybe not the right RP environment... After all, this aspect is something that, among other aspects, attracted us in Gor... Cam and voice, after, is depending of the relationship you have with some of your closest RP partners.

Action? Yes of course! And challenges, intrigues, risks...

Hmmm, so many here say 'none of the above'.

So, apparently, most of you don't like ERP AND most of you don't like action either?

Could be true, for some of you.

However, I'd submit an alternative theory:

That a lot of you are dishonest politically correct chickens that will say whatever sounds 'proper' and high-brow.

"Oh, no! I do not play the online game build around the theme of sexual slavery and swords because I like sexual play, or because I enjoy combat. No, sir! I play it solely to delve into the artistry of creative writing!"

Pfff. :P

(Kudos to Kaitlin for showing some honesty)

Glaucon's post made me re-read attentively the question (I should no reply to any spoil when Im - still - groggy because I slept almost all day...)

And so, "none of the above" is not that I would pick. But my comments still stand. I have no issue with metered combat, as long as it makes sense in the scene, even if "action" doesnt mean obligatory the use of metered combat. And yes, still, erotica, because a sexual scene, even well emoted is a bit more visual when we jump on a pose ball (if quality animations).

Well, all of the above with RP involved.

And OOC chat doesnt bother me, even when role playing, which bothers me are OOC comments in general chat in the middle of my RP scene.

I think I am more coherent, now....

I RP for all of the above and more, emotions and feelings of all kinds come diversified from erotica... to laughs and actual rage release.

Yes even the OOC chat and awesome gossip.

I don't see how it is possible to have an rp without all of those into the big cauldron.

Glaucon! :blahslap:

ALRIGHT THEN! - CHICKEN VOTES: ALL OF THE ABOVE! :lol:

Especially since the description of the poll changed after i had answered.

I still don't like the ooc part in rp. I hate group chats when they turn into ooc party time that takes away from the actual rp. And when it turns into a bully feast of the strangers that visit the sim erk! OOC in im are fine - as long as they don't take focus and delay roleplay posts. There's nothing more annoying than waiting 5+ minutes for a post and then get one line %&%¤##¤&.

Naturally i do not mind the erotica - or i would not be roleplaying in Gor. I don't see where cam and voice and all that fits into the roleplay and i don't care if my pixels are on a pose ball or not, hence why i answered "no thanks" in my first post.

Meter fight...nah...i stink at it. And i don't see the roleplay aspect in it at all. It takes away a wealth of opportunity for drama and story in my opinion, even if it DOES give a rush of adrenalin, hence why i answered "no thanks" in my first post. Roleplay fights - drama - adventure - stalking - battles and bullying - hell yes! In any role please! And could i be let to play it out more than 5 mins before i am meter downed without even having any weapon drawn please?

Sim build? Well its nice if it fits the story somewhat surely, But i don't really need it. I could roleplay gor in an empty skybox and have just as much fun with that. Its not a factor that means that much to me - same as how my roleplay partner look. Smexy pixles are great, but the opposite is not a show stopper for me. I am super visual, its just that i am pretty good at making those visions in my own head if i need to :D
