I'm more annoyed by male players who play female characters badly than any of the rest (i.e. stereotypically without being satirical).

So it's stretch some folks don't want to pretend. *shrug* Would it stop me from playing a male or female character? No.

Seriously, OGT, that's your perogative, I am just saying it's not cool to rip on Marine because he feels differently. You know I've got no problem with you, you crack me up.

I've seen quite a few males play female chars, and usually it is pretty obvious. I think most guys don't really have the full appreciation of what makes women tick, or can't put themselves into the role enough to pull if off believably. On the other hand, I suspect most women can roleplay as women believably, but not necessarily because they understand women! icon_wink.gif

"The most intelligent women in the world are female impersonators" ~ Kevin Solway


I think roleplaying ends up being more than just "make believe" as Daze puts it. It really is closer to "authoring", because you're doing character development ... once you really start getting into roleplaying a character, you find you need to invent a back-story for the character (authoring), and often people will try to come up with some roleplay motivations for their char which are entertaining to others (like authoring). Then you want to start projecting some kind of "plot arc" for your character to amuse yourself and others -- again, not different from authoring.

It is different from conventional book-writing, of course, because much of it happens on the fly, in reaction to what happens to your char -- it's sort of like "improv writing". Though, I think some people really get into it, and will put together note sheets to help them remember the details of their character's personality and history.

If you really think it's no different than "playing house", then either you've never really honestly tried roleplaying, or else your version of "playing house" was far more detailed and thought-out than mine ever was!

I always wanted to be the mommy. Go figure..

I totally agree - if guys want to do better RP of girls they need to add Waaaaay more shopping and crying.

Ever the things you say are far dumber than Marine's. You sound like a moron every time you post. Maybe this is just me. I can not think of one positive thing you have ever said... as a matter of fact, I can not think of a single constructive thing you have ever said.

Listen, I don't really care either way but if it was stuck to Girls being Girl Characters and Boys being Boy Characters... there would be, what 4 girls?

So is a sausage fest what you all want? Is that it? A bunch of hormonal barbariens running around in sometimes tight or somtimes radiently flaming cloths? With big long staves? Is that it? Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh?

I suppose it wouldn't hurt to run out to the Ele valley and round us up some REALL women, eh? What do ya' say? Maybe the Unities wil be less up tight and show alittle more tail...

ok honestly I'll admitt this, I made this post at.... *walks over to clock* 4:30 in the morning, and I've been without sleep for a LONG time.

...end


ps. to comment on the LESBOS comment... I hear hear and 2nd that...

...end to the 2nd

Suggestion:

What if we had a mens club in any of the 3 major towns? The inn can get a wee bit dull at times. Besides, it would be a good addition for realism if we did.

I can name a few I would see there already...

But.. uh... I wouldn't go... honest... icon_rolleyes.gif
