Lemme try this again

I don’t personally.

Except on Gmod rps, breaking into peoples houses and stealing everything is pretty funny.

But if that don’t work, I get a gun(half the rp experience anyways, yes it has more guns than the standard game), and kill everyone for the lulz, and than prop spam, preferably on the spawn point to piss off the server.

Also traitor in terrorist town is pretty fun too, very troll easy.

With, “Lemme try this again” as the Thread name, I tought it was going to be one of Russian Fedora’s Forum Life Restart Threads.

I personally don’t play RPGs. Though I have played Forum Games similar to RPGs.

He’s talking about forum Role-playing. Which is different.

Wow, y’all really go off the edge of the earth to correct someone, don’t cha?

But anyway, I had something else running though my mind at the moment so I got mixed between the two.

Uhm…

Aside from Role Playing Games (RPGs) I’m only familiar with 2 other meanings:

1. Where a bored middle-aged couple pretends to be someone else to spice things up.
2. Where a supervisor plays the part of a client with their new trainee as a form of on-the-job training.

What you guys are talking about sounds like sockpuppetting, and no, I’d never do that.

What the fuck is this thread about?

Pick one:
A. Tabletop Role-playing (TT)
B. Live Action Role-playing (LARP)
C. Role-playing Video Games (RPGs)
D. Role-playing at work (ie: practicing a sales pitch)
E. Alternate profiles (alts, “sockpuppeting”)

F: Forum Roleplaying.

It’s a forum game where you pretend to be someone or something and you do stuff and interact with others.

So you actually mean E. Alternate profiles (alts, “sockpuppeting”)

Alt profiles aren’t necessary to roleplay, but you certainly could do it.

Doesn’t forum roleplay generally have the goal of collaborating on creating a story of sorts? It’s like what you do with your boss, except that your boss might be a spaceman dragon fighter. So it would be more like LARPing, but online.

“Sockpuppeting” sounds like an attempt to maniuplate conversation by deceiving other particpants into believing you’re somebody else.

Just googling forum roleplay yields: http://roleplayerguild.com/
