Roleplayers... ugh!Follow

"Roleplayers... ugh!"

How often has the above happened to you? It seems I've found this happening more and more lately. While unofficial, Besaid IS considered a RP server for the general populace on FFXIV. Really, why do people come to this server then complain about people who have been there well before them? I have no issues with non-RPers, but if you don't like what I'm doing please don't start harassing me, or others for it. Generally I make an effort to ignore this, but it makes that hard when people purposely try to grief you or threaten to report you for just RPing... Forgive the rant, thank you for your time... And please, be respectful of an RPer and we'll be respectful of you, okay? Thank you.

I'm gonna be honest here, I don't really RP at all but I also dont see any hate directed at RPers on Besaid.

If you feel that someone is doing it on purpose then just blacklist it.

I'm pretty sure Besaid was named the "Unofficial RP Server" by the 30 or so people that browse forums. The rest of Besaid has no idea.

Blacklist them if they give you ****

Heh, while the general -RP- population may consider Besaid the unofficial RP server, to everyone else it's just another server. I played on this server since the beta, and found out at the last minute like the day before the CE came out that it would have the largest RP population.

At the time I had no idea what RP'ing was about. I figured what the ****, I'll join the server I had my name reserved on, go about my usual gamer business, and maybe see an amusing show here and there. I figured RP'ing in a game was probably like a lighthearted novelty of sorts, and that sort of thing, figured there'd be jokes and novelty gear sets with goofy emotes and etc. To be honest, it's a lot more dull and serious than I ever thought it'd be, but whatever floats your goats.

Regardless of my personal take on it, I'll never pick on you guys for it. Worst I've done is occasional run up and trade an acorn cookie out of the blue to someone in the middle of RP'ing... But I do that to all kinds of people who are in the middle of all kinds of things, both friends and randoms. ^.^

At any rate, you guys have fun with that, lol. If anyone in our linkshell does anything uncalled for, let me know and I'll have a talk with them about it. We don't like any of our members causing troubles, but it does happen out of thoughtlessness now and then. Most of our members have an understanding about the RP thing though, and won't bother people about it.

Fun RP:

"I found the beast about 5 malms north of here, let's head out."
"I need to pick up some supplies first at the shop. Let me brush some of the dust from my wands."
"Gwahaha! I'll tear the beasty to shreds."

Me: Those guys seem to be having fun.


Boring RP:

"Hark! Walking was I through a wood most thick, roughly 5 malms from here, deep in the darkest..."

Me: *teleports to Ul'dah to do some levequests and returns about 35 minutes later*

"And we shall gather at the north entrance to depart on our quest to slay the great beast. And we..."

Me: OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! IT'S A LEVEL 3 SQUIRREL FOR CHRIST'S SAKE!!!

I don't care if you want to be dull and boring and corny as all holy ****, but if that's the way you do it please keep it in party chat. I don't need to hear an hour's worth of battle strategy on Star Marmots.

This :(

After an hour's worth of /say where the participants are discussing the details of their great journey to the guildleve counter and back, the brain might start bleeding violently.

The real pain, however, begins when they start rp-cybering in gridania¨'.

Anyone RPing like that just needs to be impaled with a stick... Through the ear at that. No RP and I mean NO RP I've ever seen or encountered was something like that. I RP but even I find that utterly ridiculous.

My example of RP:
Me: "Hey, I found the tarrrget, it's just a bit norrrth of herrre."
RPer 1: "Okay, let me get my stuff ready."
Me: "Fine, but hurrry up! I hate watin' on yourrr slow arrrse!"
RPer 1: "Okay okay..." *grumbles* "Bossy Miqo'te..."
Me: "What was that?"
RPer 2: "He sai-"
RPer 1: "Nothing! It was nothing at all, eheh."
Me: "That's what I though."

I have to say that I miss seeing the RP'ers talk in say. I have to agree with the comment that it added to the atmosphere of the world. Every time I saw, for example, a trio walking around the windy passages of the black shroud arguing back and forth about this or that it always made me smile. In fact, I would stalk them for a little bit to see if what they were talking about was interesting. Creepy, I know. @_@

Last 7 days only came across this twice and both of them in LL, Marauder Guild and Adv Guild/Choco Stable (I took the lift so not sure which floor they were in).

This is the difference in the RP community. There are those who are more practical, and those who think having an enormous vocabulary will make them awesome.

Uh, no.

I don't care if you think having a higher wordcount in your RP makes you awesome -- it just makes you look like a jackass. Why do you think Feral Ren is so blunt and straight to the point?

Let me reiterate again: wordcount =/= fun RP.

A'ight?

Edit: Maybe if they brought back that chat character limit, we'd be seeing fewer walls of text.

Personaly i think role players make the game more interesting, especialy with the player character events they hold, such as hide and seek and the Onion Race. I didnt know that Besaid was the unofficial rp server till after i choose it, but it really doesnt matter to me, as long as there are people to party with.

I did run into one roleplay though that dragged on for hours. Its cool and all that your into it, but then it just turns into a really bad soap opera.
Necro Warning: This post occurred more than thirty days after the prior, and may be a necropost.

I didn't know what RP was until I started playing, and I started getting involved. It's fun, and I understand that it's not for everyone. But there are some cool events that go on...I'm the leader of the shell that runs Hide and Seek and the Onion Race. And actually, those events are done by the non-rp shell. But if you ever run into any of us, feel free to say hello. RPers are generally an easygoing bunch, as long as you're respectful. If you start running around humping people and telling them that they're stupid, they tend to get a little angry...although the blacklist is your friend in that respect.

I try to do most of my RP in say, unless it is something that's going to drag out for hours on end, at which point I swap it to /party or /tells or my IC shell. Anyone seen ERPing (or cybering) in /say should not be doing so. The RP community should be respectful of the others...especially if we want respect in return. If you see someone doing that, check them, and look for their LS on the RPC site...Tell someone, so that the LS leader can handle their shell. I know that if my shell was doing something like that, I'd like to know.

K. Done rambling. Hope to see you all in game!
