  1. Re: I fear for the worst, RP is becoming harder in Landroval.

    Oh, noes! The thread's morphing into a discussion on the best way to duel! I thought that was an SWG exclusive disease. :D

    How about we're on the same side fighting the NPC forces of Sauron? I...
  2. Re: I fear for the worst, RP is becoming harder in Landroval.

    Well said. Count Hagall in too.

    Though I might not describe anyone necessarily as a "better" class of roleplayer. Some folks who are annoyingly nitpicky might be brilliant RPers! They just...

    Re: Quality RP on Landroval - Does it Exist?

    It's obvious what you're not looking for here. I'd focus instead a little more on what you are seeking with a little more specificity. Quality RP can mean different things to different people.
  4. Re: I fear for the worst, RP is becoming harder in Landroval.

    I unquestionably agree with the first part of this. It's all about entertainment when it comes down to it and in the case of roleplaying, others even more than one's self. If you're dull you'll...
  5. Re: I fear for the worst, RP is becoming harder in Landroval.

    Sounds to me that Tolkien may have simply, in his mind, substituted natural for supernatural in his definition of what Elves could do. It's still essentially magical from the point of view of Man in...

    Re: RPing in different and sensible locations

    Roleplaying can be a bit like swimming. You just have to jump in. Know you're not going to be perfect and will make all kinds of mistakes. But, if you're even asking yourself the question, "Am I...
  7. Re: How would you react to this character? (Please offer advice)

    I think I get it. He's a tough little beggar because he's had a rough life and he's a bit shy. So he doesn't think of himself as a hero and probably thinks any "official" notice he'd get would be...
  8. Re: I fear for the worst, RP is becoming harder in Landroval.

    I'd say Good and Evil do have strong associations in some settings. Lord of The Rings is one of them. Shades of gray can work but given the nature of the conflict that's brewing everyone is going...
  9. Re: I fear for the worst, RP is becoming harder in Landroval.

    I am starting to get that. Not always quick on the uptake, I.



    Absolutely. It's not a universal rule but it's the usual mode of play and a healthy one. Going back to tabletop roleplaying...
  10. Re: I fear for the worst, RP is becoming harder in Landroval.

    I don't know you so I can't say what the motivator here is. But I will say most roleplayers do get attached to their characters. It's not about stuff, it's about personalities and ties to other...
  11. Re: I fear for the worst, RP is becoming harder in Landroval.

    As a rule of thumb, if someone cares about something they're going to have an emotional attachment. People that aren't at all attached to their characters probably aren't investing much into them.
  12. Re: I fear for the worst, RP is becoming harder in Landroval.

    And those kinds of characters aren't involved in any of the problems we're seeing. It's the shady guy in the bar puffing on his pipe, hand-on-swordhilt, muttering about killing people. That's where...
  13. Re: I fear for the worst, RP is becoming harder in Landroval.

    That's the ideal. IC and OOC are separate. Church and state. Good roleplayers never mix the two. However, I can't tell you how many times people who say this in a forum can find the reality of...
  14. Re: I fear for the worst, RP is becoming harder in Landroval.

    This works better with smaller, more intimate, groups of players like friends playing a tabletop game or a group of folks on a well regulated text MUSH or within a particular guild (Kinship/Player...
  15. Re: I fear for the worst, RP is becoming harder in Landroval.

    This thread has been an interesting read but the situation was addressed quite well on page one. "If you don't like how someone else is roleplaying, don't roleplay with them."

    There's always...

    Re: What kind of RP do you prefer?

    You've had so many good replies already I'm afraid I'm going to be a little redundant.

    What I actually seem to do the most in LoTRO (Landroval) is improvised RP and mainly social/tavern RP at...

    Re: Roleplaying realism and questing?

    It's interesting you should say that. I've noticed that far more roleplayers seem to crop up in Bree or The Shire than the Elven/Dwarven starting areas. Bree, because of the Pony no doubt, and the...
  18. Re: Mature Players New to LotRO Endgame - Looking for Guidance!

    I'm sort of in the same boat. I've been around since launch, on and off, and somehow managed to get my main character, a Champion, to 65 but without doing much grouping. I'm in a good Kinship...

    Re: How do you create music for use in game?

    Here's the thing. I know what Russian folk music sounds like, very dirge-like or wild by turns (esp. Cossack), which sounds like it might suit the dwarvish temperament very well. And if I really...

    Re: RP Help

    There's no one particular "right" way to go about roleplaying.

    My personal approach is to decide who I want to play and then mess around with the game for a bit to figure out what it lets me do. ...

    Re: How do you create music for use in game?

    I've started going through some of those online folk/traditional ABC archives myself. It's time consuming, no idea what anything sounds like until I play it or the songs don't work in LoTRO or they...

    I'm an old player here who eventually bought a lifetime but hardly ever played. New shiny toys are out there and I'm a curious sort. Always questing, tinkering and looking around. My curiosity...

    Re: How do you create music for use in game?

    Do either of you use premade ABC files and how do those usually work out? I've noticed there's quite a bit of folk and traditional music out there in various ABC libraries online. What would the...

    Re: What are you listening to?

    Winter Hour's old jangly guitar album "Wait Till The Morning." I think my discovery of jangly lute music got me inspired to seek out other jangles elsewhere. Should suffice until my sea chanty CDs...
