I enjoy the occasional role play and have been known to visit sims that’ll get me kicked from the JuniorSLeague. What always surprises me is the number of people who drop by a clearly marked role play sim and expect not to role play. It’s like a sea of newbs who have lost their luggage, all wandering aimlessly around baggage claim hoping someone will instruct them. I can be a helpful girl and don’t mind offering guidance … but there are limits.
Case in point, I was casually chatting with an SL stripper at *SIM name withheld to protect my reputation*. I was bored, and assumed perhaps he could hold a decent conversation; I mean come on, he emotes taking off pixel clothing for a living. Then, without warning …
MaleStripper WhoGotNoGame: *hops on blue ball and begins humping air furiously while fully clothed* mmmm do you like that?
MaleStripper WhoGotNoGame: I shove my huge *bleep* deep inside of you.
Me: Whoa, maybe we should work up to that?
MaleStripper WhoGotNoGame: Oh. Take off your clothes.
Me: Perhaps you would have better luck if you participated in the removal of my clothes?
MaleStripper WhoGotNoGame: Oh.
*insert crickets chirping*
Me, after five minutes of watching him continue to hump air: *TPs the hell out — OK I lie, I logged out, fled like the girl I am*
I won’t claim to be an expert role player, but if I visit a role play sim, I will read the rules, dress appropriately and start mapping out a quick character in my head so I can be prepared. I missed the part in the rules that says all role play must evolve around humping. Maybe I need to find a good foreplay sim.
Is there anyone out there who plays for the fun of developing a character, engaging with others in creative storytelling?
Character – Feles, a wise-cracking flirt who never puts out. Self-centered ‘lil princess, sorta bossy and usually gets her way. Looking for prince charming, call me ;-)
RP Limits – Five minutes of boring conversation and I TP out. Fake partnerships dissolved after one week with no role play.
PS, there are resources to help you with role playing. Like Salvatore’s blog.
