Thinking of joining TR and interested in RP
« on: May 22, 2008, 09:44:09 PM »
Wanted to take a moment and post for all the potential roleplayers out there. I've scanned different forums and in my search for Sci-Fi RP and I've been left a bit disheartened as there isn't much in the way of recent activity on any of the boards that I've seen.

I'm a long time COH player among other games and would like to meet up with members of the story telling community here.

Is there a roleplaying community alive in Tabula Rasa? If so, let me know! Be sure to mention the preferred server, as I was planning to join the EU server.

Thanks!

You will have to as Gangrel and the other players that play on the EU server what their RP community is like. On the US side Cassieopeiia  was chosen as the unofficial RP server during Beta. (how strong it still is not sure).

Well, either the roleplaying community on Centaurus only ever comes out of hiding whenever I'm not on, or there simply isn't one. Granted, I'm really not looking all that hard, but I don't think I've seen even one single roleplayer during all these months on Centaurus...

I *think* there are some around... although being honest it isnt all that much...

What there is though is more of the "very casual" roleplaying (ie with the emotes)... Hell, at a push, saluting players that you know/recognise is (in a fashion) roleplaying.

If anything else, try setting up your own Clan and seeing how it goes (it only costs 10K which i will give you if you want) and take it from there....
1) I reject your reality.... and substitute my own
2) Not to be used when upset... will void warranty
3) Stoke me a clipper i will be back for dinner
4) Never tell Gangrel to do anything... he will probably get it wrong
5) I have seen more intelligence from an NPC AI in TR beta, than from most MMO players.

Oh, if using /emotes is considered roleplaying, then I'm a pretty big roleplayer  ;D Not a very serious one, though ;)

Although I have played pen and paper rpg:s for over 15 years in my past, I really cant see myself RP:ing in an online rpg... Might be the way some people take RP:ing online... Sitting in a circle and using emotes and /me:s and talking about some very boring stuff ;) In TR I can imagine what it would be like... Teamleader using team chat shouting commands, and everyone shouting "ayeaye sir" and the team getting wiped... But without sarcasm, I like to roleplay sometimes, especially when I see friends ingame.

Hello guys! Haven't played TR  since beta, and just got the game. Was hoping for some RP, but it seems the game isn't very active at all. Any chance the few RP'ers on the EU server could come out of hiding, so i could get some enjoyment, evenmaybe join/start a clan?

See ya all in game.

gangrel, less alcohol ! or less zero gravity from eve ... whatever helps best

there's a clanlisting on the tr mainpage, maybe you find some active rp clans there

I am in my first month back to TR after only playing the initial month you get with the box about 5-6 m onths back (I got a nice new grafix card so I can play with decent FPS now :P)

I play on the EU server and I am very interested in getting into the RP aspect of this game, this game has some awesome possibilities for great and in my opinion unique RP oppotunities. Neocron aside I don't know of any other game up to the calibre of TR that potrays a sci-fi setting for a mmorpg.

I am an experienced online gamer and clan leader from games such as UO, WoW (don't hate meh!), LotRo, and my main other game Eve Online, not to mention many non-massive games such as CoH and DoW.

I will be looking into the creation of a RP clan, not the sit around and use emotes all day RP style, I am more about invoking the military, dicipline, and teamwork aspects of this setting.

From what I have seen so far, the gameplay itself doesn't lend itself to RPing, with its quest/instance focused leveling, and the massive XP penalties that go with high level and low level squadmates. However if I can find a number of people willing to basically forget the whole level grind thing (within reason of course :P) I am certain that much can be done, as I am sure other RP clans are already doing, of course I could opt to join an established unit, however I have always prefered to do things my way so I hope to see you all soon.

Suiza out!
