View Full Version : Seperating Game and RP

It's something that I recently realized bears repeating. The stats of the game and the characteristics of RP are not totally congruent. In fact, being in a Kingdom is a lot like splitting your character in half: One half is solely based on levels, the other is solely based on RP. That's not to say these two don't overlap, and often (ie Zoe the character and Zoe the player are both quite powerful, Edwin the player and the chracter are both marinated in mana, but conversly someone could be Level 90, but without RP experience, their character would be amazingly weak). It's something that we really don't see enough. Just because you buy and learn piety the scroll dosen't mean that your RP character knows how to be a good priest, powers and special abilities should be obtained by RP means if to be used by RP methods.

Of course, this isn't a new policy or anything, just a little suggestion that tends to be a rather unspoken rule, and thus is easy to miss out on

Hardly anyone on GK understands how to RP anymore, yo. We should work together with one or two other RPers and make a GK RPing tutorial, with guidelines and rules and regulations on how to Roleplay on GK (Liek, how to RP wars and stuff). Then, everyone in a kingdom who doesn't know the rules will have no excuse and we can whomp their asses :cool:
