"I would like to see that also, but don't forget, Sojourn is a power mud now.
RP is a thing of the past."

------------------
Ilshad
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
This sounds about right to me, but still -
for a game that is no longer RP heavy or
encouraged, it still seems that these quests
and other god-run events exist to make
people RP "on-the-spot." That seems rather
dumb to me. Even though I am not really
playing anymore (I have gone back to duris
*shrug*) I still wonder about things like
this. Few people RP . . . the only RP that
I ever ran across was a) people sitting at
fountain, b) people making fun of another
race/class, c) women wearing clothing to
make guys drool on them.
So, we have RP for - boredom, humour,
getting women. Oh, lets not forget - a
god logs on at your XP spot, where you have
been mindlessly killing pirates for a few
days. Instead of giving you the title
"Scourge of the Seas" Instead, you go on
a huge mudwide quest. How is this related?
I really wish Sojourn was as hard as it
used to be. The playerbase is as small as I
have seen it in years, there is little to do
hours after a reboot. As Ilshad pointed out
even the hard zones are slaughtered almost
regularly. If gods are going to be doing
RP sessions - 1) the friday night things suck
for people who can not play friday nights. 2) the questing *really* seems to alienate
those not involved. After trying to RP my
character - all it took was a single zone for
me to realize I was wasting my time.

No one cares about RP anymore. They want
to be as powerful as they can, on as many
characters as they can. If that is all
Sojourn is about now, then I will be on
Duris for a while. Have fun guys, I hope
one day Sojourn tries to become what it
once was.

post scriptum - i measure the success of a
post on the number of unintelligently
nonwitty replies it gets.

Find other people who want to RP and group with them only. Trying to RP while you're grouping with 14 people that are quite unwilling to do so is futile in most cases.

I assume you're willing to leave the groups of the powergamers for the company of roleplayers? I guess you'd have to, otherwise your post is as moot as a post ever was.

Daz, I find it almost laughable that a player who names himself after a rapper would have the gall to rant on the lack of other people RP'ing. Perhaps if I roll up a char named Tupac we can get some real RP going ... chuckle

Wow, "loser" huh, you're pulling out all the stops on this one. As you've so eloquently stated, you yourself are a big rap fan, and any semi-conscious rap fan would know of Daz Dillinger (or Kurupt) from the Dogg Pound (ie Dr. Dre and Snoop's pseudo-proteges of days old - to onlookers, and non rap-fans, these guys are WELL known to non-mtv rap observers)

Disclaim it all you want, uhm "loser", but if you're THAT concerned with RP you wouldn't have a name identical to a fairly well known rapper ... moral of the story is quit pointing fingers at others when you yourself are committing a far more egregious offense with your name alone.

Grumble

ps - so sorry (snicker) if i outted you, but if you'd have left in peace without acting like an ass, then I wouldn't have felt the need -- cheers!

Simple fix to Sojourn3 and the RP problem.

Mystra where art thou!

Bring the fires of hell and fury upon the silliness that has corrupted Sojourn3! Abolish the wicked (you know who you are)and feed their flesh to the living.

Your logic is so faulty that I don't even know where to begin - I'll make this short and simple:

A) It's not a city, though good try using google.

B) I never claimed to be the pillar of RP -- hell I don't RP at all, nor never claimed to -- thus debunking me on my own name is irrelevant. Posting a scathing commentary directed at the entire playerbase implies, however, that you yourself follow the very RP principles that you condemn others for. I was simply the one to call you on its hypocrisy.

C) Sarkhon was a name I made up over 8 years ago - i'd be willing to guess that 1 in a million would be able to analogize it to anything of significance in RL. By contrast, 1 in 4 rap fans would know of Daz, of which I'm relatively sure you yourself fall into.

I don't feel the need to comment on this anymore, but enjoy your search for "RP" on duris.

I will verify that Daz was in fact Dazok shortened. I used to group with Dazok quite a bit back in the day.

Ahh, but how do we know that Dazok is not this 'rapper' fellow's full name? Perhaps 'Daz' is just his stage name. Hrmmm...
