ok fine ill try to roleplay. maybe i wont be that good at it but ill try. but i have a question. one of you guys said i shouldnt seek power if i am roleplaying but u said all it is is to act like you are the character. so what if my character is power hungry, born with superhuman abilities, or whatever?

Cool. It's really pretty fun and it is not required 100% of the time. Don't worry about not being any good at it. I really don't think I'm all that great either... but you can't do it if you don't try.

About RP'ing a power hungry character... there are many possibilities. It could be power hungry for physical dominance, political influence, religious persuasion, wealth, or something else. The type of power your character desires can drive your character's reactions to certain situations and help define his motivation to "do" certain things. For instance, a character who desires gold and sees no reason not to just take it from someone would make a good rogue. Aside from leveling, they would also try to learn to pickpocket effectively, which certainly requires roleplaying and it helps to have an accomplice. A barbarian that wants to be the powerful in battle will likely take on any job that tests his skills. Aside from "training" in the areas with the toughest creatures he can handle, he will likely work as a mercenary, perhaps in a DM quest or for another player who seeks revenge on yet another, or whatever.

As far as superhuman abilities are concerned... I haven't the RP experience in Dyso to give a consistent answer... there are probably many opinions on that and I would guess it would also depend on what type of superhuman powers and such. It could be fun to do if within reason (whatever that may be).

Anyway... that was long-winded, but I hope you enjoy your time in Dyso. You will find that most players are accomodating as you go-go around, but you will most certainly run into some of their "characters" that are not, hehe.

A quick reminder...

Whenever you "talk" to someone in the game... pretend it is only your character that is talking. If you, the player, have something to say... then use (( in front of or after what you have to say. That shows the others that you are talking and not your character.

note: some people aslo use ooc- or -ooc or something like that at the begining or end of the message to show that they are talking and not their character.

just play a power hungry sorc out to hone his skills to the maximum... maybe, just a suggestion, you wouldnt be the first, and i guess its acceptable rp from what i hear from others...

Jon, I saw it on the Dysotopia server, seriously, there is a Drizzt on the Dyso server...SO MAKE ARTEMIS ALREADY emot-yum.gif


And impervious, if you don't roleplay, you need to seriously go somewhere else NOW. Roleplaying is a MUST. Why do you think it's in the RP section anyway???? Just for fun???? NOOOOOOO, if you want to level and explore, go to some lame action PW or whatever, but LEAVE HERE!!!!

Yep, I have issues.....I have issues with people who don't roleplay when others are around, or people who make Drow characters named "Don't Mess With Me", and I also have problems with lamers who don't want to roleplay and only want to level on a roleplay server. Seriously, I don't see the problem with those issues....icon_razz.gif

Impervious... ShadowCore is what I call a HARDcore RP guy. Not all of us are as good as him at RP. There are plenty who level about as much as, or even more than, they RP. That is NOT against the rules, hehe!

It's really just a matter of opinion. As long as you are trying and stay within the server rules, you are doing just fine.

What is your character's name... I'll help when I can, but I'm really not that good.

Hey! Maybe ShadowCore can show you the ropes since he is the 100% RP expert! icon_mrgreen.gif
