Argumentative IC Posts - Sorry! 8 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 7  
It has come to my attention that some people have found some of my IC posts irritating OOC, because of their argumentative nature.

I apologise. It wasn't my attention to offend/irritate, etc. I sometimes roleplay in a reasonably 'extreme' way that isn't to everyone's taste.

I'm happy to desist from posts of that nature in future; these exchanges can be confined to those of us that enjoy them by personal mail. And do please just tell me if I upset you (or anyone else), of course, so that I can set it straight. Ultimately the game is about having fun, and I don't want to spoil anyone else's.

Cheers,

Darrell

I think the roleplay style is fine in person but the written word is so much easier to take the wrong way. Part of the reason I have not become involved in the IC discussions as Shard is driven by wanting to have those conversations IC on an event and too much "prep" via a message board I think will harm that interaction. Hence IC I am working on the assumption that Shard has thrown himself into his work and isn't really paying attention to tavern or the guildhalls. Shaun meanwhile is alternately amused and irritated but nothing serious.

Cheers

Shaun

Absolutely right, what with the lack of facial cues, the opportunity to talk OOC in person easily, etc.

It also seems to me that some people take some IC actions as having an OOC subtext that there isn't. (E.g. some of Qs's comments about the King were taken as some sort of veiled criticism of plot! But that's not the way I roleplay; if I have an OOC problem, I just say it.)

Anyway, it's all easily put right.

Good to raise this issue in general, actually, as roleplaying styles (or what people want out of the game more generally) can clash... so maybe this thread might even expand into what people do and don't like... and help us to understand one another's perspectives!

Just to tack onto this, Moderators do, of course, have the power to delete threads which we receive complaints about, so if people have any complaints regarding threads please let us know which thread it is, and what it is you have a problem with, and we will take appropriate action.

On the subject of Darrell's posts, I have not received any specific complaints about your threads Darrell, which suggests to me that most people think they're fine!

Cheers, Seb.

It's not worth upsetting even one or two people unnecessarily though! (And some people might not want to object openly, for whatever reason...)

Its a role playing game I must say at theMay Hq one of the most enjoyable bits for me was playing the healer of the mercs and having the nose to nose blazing row with Hoz when he was trying to hold me responsible for the deaths.
