Decided to drop in, started going through all the forum posts, mainly IC stuff, since my last visit. Whew, that was a lot of reading. Well, more like 'skimming' than reading. I think I'm caught up on events since my last visit months ago. How do you folks generate so much content so quickly? It takes my hours just to create and compose a 'short' IC post.

Okay so since this seems to have come up 3x in less then a week, I feel this post is needed. I play some very controversial characters. Characters that may come across as assholes, untrustworthy, at times hurtful and maybe even spiteful sometimes. I find that I need to post on here now that this is NOT an OOC thing. These chars I play are played out as THEY would react. I am always open to story telling and all my characters are played with the ideals that the RP molds the characters. Yet three times just this week, people have taken things way too seriously OOCly rather then ICly and for someone in my position that has mental anxiety issues, this is a very fast way to drive me from the server. I enjoy playing here with everyone I have come across. Please though, stop taking my characters actions OOCly, he acts as he does because its his character, not because I am trying to hurt you or upset you in any way, shape or form. Thank you in advance.

I wouldn't worry. Most of the playerbase can differentiate IC from the OOC.

Normally I would agree with you, but 3 players that I would never expect it from have taken it ooc and its already caused issues and for me is extremely painful and sets off my anxiety.

Have you tried discussing it with them personally or contacting a DM or someone mellow to mediate? It will get neither party in trouble and seems a might less problematic than making a post on the public forum. Even if you don't name names I feel like it's going to make problems worse instead of better...

I have occasionally ran into the same concern when acting out Conrad's moodswings and other character related twists and turns, gladly in all cases my concerns have proven unnecessary. Like Eiji mentioned there, healthy communication ooc is the key in addressing such issues and avoiding misunderstandings. Adding also to Izral's mention, majority of the playerbase is certainly used to facing different kinds of characters over the decades that Thain has existed. In my opinion you can get pretty far with the "Eye for the game" approach, despite character nature or the situation you can respect the ongoing rp with a bit of ooc thinking on the side.

Sometimes it can be really hard on us, personally, to behave in a way ICly that is diffefrent from what we would normally do. Take Dace, for example. I used to feel SO guilty when I just refused to travel with or associate with certain toons. I even made a post like this apologizing about it. But he just WOULDNT do it and to play him otherwise is just not authentic, or honest. My point is this: Play you toon, bro. BE him and do what he would do. TRUST me.....aint nobody here gonna take it personally or dislike you for it. Quite the contrary, they'll respect it.

Omedoom makes another point: His toon, Conrad, used to be GREAT friends with one of my toons: Sollis. Due to IC actions, that can no longer be. I am, OOC, saddened by this, but IC, it is what it is and we play our dudes faithfully. But I still see Omedoom as a BRO and will always, cuase he's my friend first and foremost.

Some I have, others I could not till a DM stepped in. Not gonna name players, but its a generalized statement, not against anyone.

It can NEVER hurt to simply ASK someone if they are upset or how they are feeling. I've always had GREAT results when following that approach, and many good friendships have developed over the years.

Unfortunately Sollis couldn't make Conrad a good guy despite his valiant efforts, but Arstan is still out there and might surface soon again! Love ya Jandari you arse! ;D
