I'm just curious what other RPers views are on handling player interactions that exist outside of what we typically want out of roleplay. Let's take "l33t-sp34k" for instance. Most hardcore roleplayers will speak in full, coherent, and generally properly spelled English. The question is (assuming you are one of these) do you ignore those who do use "l33t-sp34k"? Personally, I consider it another language within the game world, albeit one which my snobbish characters would never use but may at least learn to understand over time. Then there are factors which I personally deal with on a character-by-character basis. Player vendors, for instance, pose a unique problem. In most fantasy novels magic items are unique and rare and require a good amount of questing. In Ultima Online the marketplace is flooded with magic items, many of which are relatively cheap. I could just ignore this phenomenon to try to preserve the high fantasy feel that I am looking for in roleplaying. As a rule, however, I try not to ignore any kind of game mechanic and try to take the world at face value (although I might lobby OOC for the devs to make changes to the game world to make it more RP friendly). My approach, then, depends on my character. If I am playing my chivalrous paladin I find the marketplace odious (and all the moreso since the centre of commerce on Catskills is the holy city of Luna). If I'm playing my evil necromancer, however, I find the marketplace a delightful shortcut to power with which to attempt to destroy the world. So how do you all deal with these issues? What other, similar issues exist that you run into? I am curious because depending on your take on these issues it can radically alter your view of the game world and therefore the way you roleplay. Personally, I am always looking for more elegant forms of RP and solutions to OOC problems.
