OOC: I hate to bring it up yet again - and this is a reminder for everyone in general - please do not act for my (or anyone else's) characters. Saviin would not have let a prisoner out to stretch his/her legs. And Evaar would not linger around and ask a million questions, nor would she take a friendly interest in someone designated as a prisoner for the time being. And its up to me to decide whether Evaar might have a worried look in her eyes or not.
I know I moved Earon into a cell, but i did not speak, think, or otherwise act for her.
This is a traditional RPG, not a "round robin" type game where everyone can share in the characters' habits, comments, and general actions. Apparently this is not the norm of play here. But I have been role playing for about 6 yrs now and in any game I've ever been in - about 90% of them - everyone controlled their own characters and didn't think or speak for others. I know there are other ways of RPing, but I prefer the way in which you control only your own characters, as you would control yourself in real life. In real life, you have no idea what someone else is thinking, feeling, etc. That's the way my characters should be regarded.
For example: I'd never have Evaar hang around a prisoner and ask a million questions like a kid. Thats just not her. I'm sure if I had Earon cry because she was in the cell, or had Dress pace the floor a bundle of nerves, neither player would be amused.
I have stated previously that this is a traditional RPG. I'm sorry if its not what some members are accustomed to. If you find it frustrating, perhaps you should consider joining another story on the boards.
Also, we are not on planet yet. We are heading to the Katarn, a ship upon which we will rendevous with a group that will further assist us in reaching our goal on Brozyna. There are three people who have been waiting for us to get to the Katarn so they can start their characters. Please read the posts carefully so you know where we are going and what is happening.
So please remember:
Please play your own characters.
Please post clearly so others can understand what your characters are saying/doing.
Please read the posts carefully so you know where we are and what is happening.
I'm sorry if this all sounds like an angry rant, but I have to admit that it is becoming extremely frustrating. Keep in mind that none of this is aimed at anyone in particular, it's just a general reminder for all involved in the game. Also, please refer to the beginning page where this matter is mentioned in the game rules.
