Sword and Bored: Pub roleplay

I’ve been inspired to jump back into some more roleplay in my MMOs. I realized that I have the most fun in games when I can immerse myself in a character and live out some of the joys and frustrations of living in the world he lives in.

As readers of this comic know, one of Mo’s friends is a roleplayer, too. One of the common hangouts for roleplayers across the MMOscape is the local pub, but unfortunately, that often means the dreaded Pub Roleplay. So let’s follow Amilya up to the bar in this week’s comic…

My favorite “pub roleplay” was definitely Star Wars Galaxies, pre-NGE.

They generally had anywhere from a handful of people in them to standing room only, although some of the dancers were running scripts, they were social hubs and necessary, and people needed Entertainers to heal battle fatigue.    This need forced socialization, it was brilliant.   It would be part of any game I ever imagined.   Entertainers need to be needed, and Battle Fatigue made sure that people who did nothing but quest and fight alla time would need the Entertainers eventually, and ’round they’d come.

I put about 10 hours into the TERA RP server last week, my standard MMO trial time, on the most non RP –  RP server I have ever seen.
The biggest wtf moment I have had in a while was when I saw a police car, looked in the shop yep there they are along with instant lvl 60 scrolls. I took one last look around and uninstalled.
I will rarely type a RP line of anything myself, or anything at all for that matter, but I do like being in what that type of community used to be.

Apparently /throw beer works wonders on noted visiting PUA’s in Montreal…kinda like what holy water does to vampires. So we need something like that *RP* PUA’s ingame. <3

To hell those scrubs that cant roleplay. When I roleplay Im fully in character and speak only in ancient elven tongue. Ladies in SWToR cantinas always fall for it.
