I guess . .which is a shame and I sometimes wonder if some of older days gor got left behind where it should not have, by far!

I am focused on RP.. omg do i want RP! But as for para being all the rage? I do hope not. I dun wanna plod along like a snail in my rp ty very much. Doesn't work when engaging with all walks of life anyhow, doesn't impress, in fact does the opposite. I am middle range or what ever that might be tagged as lol.
Chron Minotaur wrote:So, "Real" Gor is where people respect one another and .......... "Para RP".
What ever floats ya boat I guess though. I can respect a person who does para RP as much as one whom doesn't. If they meet me middle range then the better.

So I'm expected to type a load of crap about the atmosphere, her appearence, my situation, the wildlife beyond the walls, with a mix of seasons and astronomy thrown in to fill a paragraph just to say "Tal".
Many who enjoy para rp can just as easily adapt and meet in the middle surely? I have met such. Though granted, if stated in their profile that they only para rp period. . then lolz

Because, "female masters" are in fashion. If I pretended to be a RL female, I'd probably get hit on in 30 seconds!
Have to disagree there. Possible reason female Male Masters are such a hit is because they bring it perhaps? Women can multitask far better than men for sure, that is a feminine trait for women in gor too yes?
Chron Minotaur wrote:RP is good, when your mind is into it, RP is fantastic. But Gor has two sides, there's the interaction between men and women and between men and men. The second is lacking because city warriors are now afraid to raid. Are the FW and slaves holding them back, instructing them to RP over raiding? People don't like a challenge anymore, unless it's how many words you can spit out in five minutes of Para RP?
A mix of both is ideal to me personally. Raiding all day long = dull, No raiding hardly ever = dull. If boys wanna play battle ground wars 24/7 then go play WoW, if boys wanna go play chat rp 24/7 only then .. erm yawns too. I have yet to see an intense rp battle in chat, other than 2 involved only. Though dun blame it on women just cos you guys can't do both. . and NO!..That is so NOT multitasking!

Too black and white there, does not compute nor do I buy it for a second.
Chron Minotaur wrote:Wars and combat are a part of Gor as much as PARA RP or furring some ridiculous slave with PARA RP limits. Get out there, fight, take people with you and raid! Then see the effect it has on your roleplay.
I agree there. Tis Aaaa'll good and alll gor ya knows?
