Thoughts on the role play

WoRPG The World of RoleplayFirst of all, the recorded words here are thoughts, no more than the opinion of an individual. And yet the writer can claim that he bases his opinion on the other opinion and not standing there alone.

Role-playing game in SL is nothing more than a game, in wich players move into a role and an electronic avatar. Imagination is needed and knowledge around the world, is the venue for the role play. Their are many: the Middle Ages, SciFi, Fantasy, Gor, antiquity, the present day. Even the latest computer-games will be added.
Usually, a distinction at the game is to play between different species.  Is a roleplay based on a novel or book, it is possible to play by the bookstory (Btb) or interpret the game a little further. Basically, there are always rules which a game follows. This can already start at the roles available (A Romulan rarely makes sense in the Middle Ages). Weapons, seasons, administrators, and director, everything is stated in the rules.
On the other hand Second Life offers an incredible variety of options and combinations that make many things possible without being constrained by a third party such as games developers. May it be that you have to collect any resources in a role play or that you can create the building / the setting of Roleplay Sim itself. The latter with skill and some L$.

There are Sims, where you can grow vegetables, breed animals and so on. There are Sims, where it is not welcome. There are players who refuse this. They say it narrows the imagination and is bureaucracy.There are Sims where shootings and war-games are hold like crazy and the role play with Textemotes is only secondary. There are Sims where no arrow flies and no vegetables should be eaten in order to stay healthy.
Now what is the proper role playing? Thoughts on the role play weiterlesen

A role-playing game is a game in which the participants assume the roles of characters and collaboratively create stories. Participants determine the actions of their characters based on their characterisation, and the actions succeed or fail according to a formal system of rules and guidelines. Within the rules, they may improvise freely; their choices shape the direction and outcome of the games.

Types of Roleplay

There is a wide variety of role playing games. Basically, you can distinguish between regulated and spontaneous role playing, but you will often find exceptions to the typical characteristics mentioned here.

Free-associative and spontaneous role playing

Free-associative and spontaneous role plays are designed by the game players imagination during the game. The game is subject to outstanding agreements or scenarios, toys can also be used. Examples are mother-father-child, cops and robbers or cowboys and Indians, which are played by children spontaneously and in constantly changing scenarios. Appropriate toys include shops and toy worlds such as Playmobil or Lego. What is Roleplay? weiterlesen
