RP IS Important... it's creating, imagining, acting... What are authors? actors? dreamers? And I use ALL the poses the Devs sent down to us because, I've only been fortunate enough of having a limited amount of rl experience with some rp, but I LOVED it! I'm so hopping still to have much more of that on here! I've got my "real" ava (we're all kinda lying, I'm 5'2" and have like no tits) but am planing on and can't wait to start using another avatar to create "characters" either out whim, fancy or for my or a chosen others pleasure. And yeah, if you put it right up there in the profile that "THIS IS NOT ME BUT A CONSTRUCT OF MY MIND" well it isn't lying right? (In my particular profile it may say "fractured" mind...)

RP tends to be a loose term. 

 

If you mean it in a "I assume a whole new identity and play 3dx as if I am LARPing all the time" sense. No, I don't think there's much of that outside of the people who lie about their identity irl, I'm sure there's a few exceptions to the rule.

 

If you mean it in a "I emote and describe how I would react in these situations rather than just watch pisspoor animations" sense. Yes, there's many people who do that, it's pretty much the norm.

The point is to create situations, scenario.

And this is something, where there are different interpretations of the term Roleplay, I'm afraid.

 

For me Roleplay is exactly that: Creating a situation or scenario, may it be playing a boss in an office or sex with an alien in outerspace.

 

However, I have the impression that there are quite a lot of people in 3dx who define Roleplay as I would define Descriptive Sex, using words to describe the what and how, though not necessarily creating a situation or a secenario.

Well, there is simple roleplay : You create a situation/scenario

There is descriptive : You put your actions into words. The more the better.

 

And some people do descriptive roleplay indeed. Which is the two combined. That's what i like the most.

I'd like to add that those ones often play a character when interacting with their avatars. Which makes it the classic MMO / MMORPG kind of roleplay. 

 

That explains the confusion between players who come from online games and the ones who don't.

Well IMHO, a roleplay is by definition descriptive, then the two combined. It allows to explore fantasies, or a peculiar situation.I recently had a RP: Teacher, student. How will each partner react is important. It gives sense to the whole story. You can have scenarios, like in movie in which all is written (less interesting in my mind). Of course, you need to trust your partner(s).

I've been around here about 3 months and consider myself a decent role player and also good at descriptive sex. While not the same thing, I think a lot of people who like one, also like the other.

 

Why descriptive? Like many, I find just flicking through poses plain boring. Same goes for playing with people you have no connection with whatsoever. Yes, even if it only takes 10 minutes of chat, that makes it a lot different from just jumping into the foreplay-oral-vaginal routines after a cold. And as many pointed out, descriptive makes up for what the ava's cant show:

 

/me slowly lowers his hand from your belly to the tender spot between your legs, feeling you gasp as I softly reach your soft lips

 

Can you do that, avatar? :)

 

Why Role Play? Simply put, for the variety AND I tend to play out fantasies I have in RL or even RL situations that I have been in. What better than to act these out with a real person at the other end? Who makes real decisions about, say, how she would react to the photographer making advances after taking nude pictures?

 

Let's hope it's not a dying art....

RP can be very hit and miss!

 

I fancy myself a writer, yet I simply cannot write erotic stuff (especially here) without making myself laugh, and of course immediately taking all the fun out of the moment.  I don't have a solution, problem for me is this whole thing about throwing all the adjectives you can conjure at a sentence, then mixing in just as many puns and metaphors to try to get around sounding repetitive or clinical.  It sometimes turns out very well, depending on the writer, but very very often it just sounds hysterical!

 

I need to do some soul searching before I properly RP again, I'm sure there's a good way to do it!

 

My guess would be that guys are not keen when you find sleeping with them hilarious. Yes its fun, but if you laugh all the time they can get the wrong idea. :D

I agree roleplay can cover a lot of different things and situation.

 

My personnal view of roleplay in a world like here, taking in account the constraint and the limit of the game is :

Try to be:

- Coherent

- Reactive to what your partner does in a logic way

 

Not to be :

- Too much serious

 

and be :

very tolerant to mistakes that WILL happen,  to keep fun and not make roleplay boring or, (worst)  "source of stress to do something wrong" which I have leaved myself several times.

 

I also tend to prefer improvisation than writting in advance a scenario but this is only personnal.

 

Roleplay can be simple and fun.

It's why I avoid "serious" RP, I cannot keep a straight face, or keep myself from throwing an "lol"

lol

Even without a keyboard involved it should be fun, everyone involved needs to just let loose.

My comment wasn't against RP, if you "play" 3dx you gotta RP at least a little, play pretend. I just can't keep up (or often from laughing) if you're narrating me a cheesy paperback from the back of a bookstore.

However, I have the impression that there are quite a lot of people in 3dx who define Roleplay as I would define Descriptive Sex, using words to describe the what and how, though not necessarily creating a situation or a secenario.

This is me and my partner, and a few friends. We came from another game, Star Wars The Old Republic and were kind of spoilt by the beautiful vast locations to RP in, which opens up so many more opportunities. I made a suggestion in this forum about including more locations, such as a city street with offices and shops and parks because with what is here, it becomes limiting, then stale, no matter how good your imagination is.

I'm not sure what the vision is for this games future, whether the team is making enough off people just wanting it as a sex simulator or whether they have plans to expand to attract more types of people, like RPers.

 

Anyway, onto the subject at hand. 

I usually do the layout for the scenarios, as I'm the only one that can it seems. :P

The last one we done was about business rivalry, and it was a lot of fun using this game as a platform for it. It went for around 2 weeks, playing a few hrs every couple of nights, and resulted in my character getting killed, which I didn't plan for. 

See, I set the basic premise, and will answer a few questions about roles before we start, but its up to each person how it goes from there, so it(the story) can evolve into a wild beast sometimes, and others it can sort of break by someone not thinking ahead or doing something really out there. Thankfully, it doesn't happen a lot, and even though my char died, it was so much fun.

 

If you want to learn more about RP, there's quite a few places on the net to find basic references to get you started, though often they will be platform specific, but there's still good info amongst that.

For me, the most important part is your char, and how much thought goes into it before you start, because if you don't, you can so easily contradict yourself or just say too much that doesn't quite fit and it can get ugly.

What I do is sit down and write a full bio of the char, starting with just the basics of age, temperament, place of birth, how you were raised and by whom, if they're still around, really give the char a life, some of the little things can play important parts of stories you come across and having them in your memory all laid out beforehand makes for a far better experience. I know some that just wing it, and for pub/club stuff, that's probably okish, but that mostly depends on the experience of that person.

Anyway, as I said at the start, we talked about it, and honestly cant see ourselves being here much longer the way the current game is, but will keep an eye on it if it expands, because it does off some unique features that are quite nice for some RP scenarios.

Hmm... I'm kinda asking myself the same question right now, with the different variations of sub-questions & answers that were mentioned by an author and here as well.
Not leaving myself passive during the process and it leaves you with the impression like something is 'different' from those areas of play.

Sounds like people have to make more rp rooms. Im a huge rper and I came from myspace, to Imvu, to well here since it was recommended by a friend. Its been hit or miss being a roleplayer myself. Anyways, I might try and make a rp room try and push it back out in the open all the private and whispering is so boring in the no talk rooms. I need context to enjoy it.

I wouldn't say that it would be any solution to that. People who made those rooms are usually desperate or dedicated into their ideas and they're mostly the same. We see the same themes going on there attracting the mediocre type of RP'ers.
After all... I've tried it once to help myself so maybe I'll test it out on my own and see what I can find.

As a huge fan of board game rp, I have to jump in on this as well ...

First, if I agree with everyone in this thread that "real" roleplay is rare in 3dx. That is for some part due to lacking locations but otoh certainly because it is difficult to attract good players, willing to rp for a longer period of time (as maybe required by a scenario).

Just yesterday I had an in game convo with a girl that was a bit disappointed about the complete lack of rp and she seemed having a hard time finding like minded people.

So why not gather together in forum and craft some ideas?

And I see no reason why locations could not be created, there are many helpful people around that will lend a hand when you run into problems with building.

I always love how those "fake" RP'ers remain so "OG" in the terms of RP; putting so much effort into spoiling their profiles with so many tags, so many colors and "likes"; ohh... and most important one "ONLY RP APPROACHES!" - nothing better then fucking them with their own weapon.

Nahh... there is no need to blame the locations, in fact... could be more but you can see some cats working those locations to make them look like they've imagined. I wouldn't say it's a problem this sort of nature.

Hehe... yeah, had some interviews too. I wonder what that 'girl' was looking for... because most of the ideas - like I mentioned before - remain overused.
