Hi, old player returning to Landroval, at least for a little bit.
Quick observation and inquiry:
Do people still roleplay out in the open much? I notice a lot of people in old rp hubs, but they just stand around and don't say much. I'm assuming they're in fellowships and speaking through that channel. If so, that's a shame. I've never been the biggest proponent of rp in this game or any other, but I always like to see open world roleplay occurring in towns and other places. It's kinda like having extra immersive npcs with advanced AI, even when I don't participate.
Second inquiry, completely unrelated to the first:
If I was to roleplay in game, what would be the best way to portray a lore-master's in game abilities? I like roleplaying an adventurer if I roleplay at all, since that's what we're doing much of the time. Barfly rp is okay once in a while but it doesn't satisfy most of the time. I know death isn't a thing in the actual gameplay. Morale is what is taking a hit when you're getting attacked, and your character is routed/defeated, not killed when they get knocked out (a brilliant bit of wording by the devs, that, as far as immersion goes). So when a lore master heals people, I see it more as him cheering them up or inspiring them one way or another. I'd like to hear others' thoughts about this subject, as well as other lore master abilities.
