Aaryanna_Mom Posted March 4, 2008 Share Posted March 4, 2008 Since I became a member and started being a part of the various rpg?s here at OtakuBoards, one thing I have noticed is that what one person considers good etiquette or rather posting rules pertaining to the characters, both player controlled and npc?s, others do not. Now I realize that it will depend on what type of rpg you are in, for example, the death card series. Those had very specific rules. Just as I realize that it also depends on the boundaries set by the creator of the rpg in question. What I?m curious to discuss here is personal likes and dislikes when you are being part of an rpg, do you like high levels of collaboration? Or do you like more a more free flowing environment where just about anything goes? Also, do you like character driven stories or plot driven? Character driven being that the characters do things because that's how the character would behave, where plot driven has them doing things mainly to advance the plot regardless of whether or not the character really would behave that way. Personally I like a little of both. In the death card series, the very nature of it gave you total freedom to develop any of the characters however you wished in conjunction with the other players. In the other major rpg I?ve been in Silver One, it?s the exact opposite, it has a much higher level of collaboration in the sense that you are focusing on just one character so you put a lot of work into building them to who and what they are. Hopefully this can be fun since I?m betting people have very different opinions on what they like and don?t like to see. And I?d like to understand that a little better really.
