    Of course I do. :)

    EVERYONE roleplays in UO cuz unless ya are a rl tamer or rl carpenter or a rl serial killa, with a 10k murdercount, then that player is on technicality, roleplaying a relentless murderous serial killer, a tamer, or a mere carpenter in a game.

    All the world is a stage ya know.

    I roleplay with known roleplayers.

    I roleplay with even our monsters in game, trying to correct them for their lousy attitudes of attacking us all on sight.

    I roleplay with non roleplayers.

    I roleplay in shakespearian speak or can rpl in uBeR L33t speak too.

    And I oft roleplay WHEN folks kill me, I may shout or emote :

    'Repent Repent thou wilt regret thine actions swine' or I may emote 'this doth not bode well for me' or I become the dancing ghost, or I do something unexpected or nutty, as I die to them.

    Cuz if I can do something utterly out of the normal reactions, of that which they are used to from their victims in this game,
    that cracks them up enough,
    to maybe spit their rl drinks onto their rl keyboard laughing,
    possibly ruining their rl keyboard which has happened a few times for me, with a few folks whom killed my chrs. then ya see...

    I WON UO over their rl lives/rl keyboard, :) so I maybe PwnT them one time, in my own weirdo ways.

    Thus I oft can easily roleplay 'Ad-lib at Comedy Central' in UO,
    but I do and can roleplay !

    I roleplay as much as is allowed.. but I refuse to lie.

    And to QZ.. remember, brevity is the soul of wit (and reading). Keep it short and to the point.

    Dear Sweeney sir,

    Brevity may be the soul of wit, for some, yet novels oft as long as WAR AND PEACE are only read by a few, still have their place in society anyways.

    We are all born as we are.
    Most human infants first word IS a first word, MINE was a paragraph.

    Do ya really expect anyone to change anyone else, whom/what she/he is, or has been all of the decades of their rl life, even if that is LONG WINDED, just cuz other folks don't like it, or can't tolerate it enough to even be polite ever, to the person whom is that way, just natural like, ie long winded ?

    When Siege is devoid of folks here, maybe yall can ask yourselves, what ya could have done to keep em or WHY they felt unwanted, or felt it pointless to stay here ?

    :please::bdh: :(

    There are numerous psychological self help programs for us all,

    regarding human beings whom have compulsive obsessive behaviorisms/needs to correct or to 'fix' other people all the time, or to publically try to humilate them, merely because they are different than ourselves.

    A simple man once stated judge not lest ye be judged.

    But do keep on putting me down here publically, for being what I am, which obviously, so sorely displeases, some if not many of you.

    I am not putting you down at all.. just saying that short posts get read, long ones get skimmed over (in my opinion and a few others I have seen).

    Keep doing what you feel good doing. Myself, I can't find the correct words in time to post a long reply.. hence my short, to the point, replies. The only time I have a need for words is in my rant threads.

    There are several styles of RP, two of which are Novel and One-liners.

    I tried it once or twice years ago wasnt for me. I prefer just going pure pvp with no story lines. It stays easier to comprehend to me anyways...

    Ditto. LS really ruined it for me in the early days of UO, there were seriously snotty/snobby/snooty roleplayers who simply refused to even acknowledge you if you didn't RP by their terms.

    I will "roleplay-lite" if I meet someone who is eagerly RP'ing with me. I have no persona, per se, set in stone. But my own personal character and wit seems roleplay enough for most folks on Siege :D

    Rykus Guest

    I like both styles, depending on the situation. I RP 100% on Rykus. The only exception being the night Folger/Jarnak passed in RL. My other chars are semi-RP, or not at all. I agree with the snobby part of the RPers on the prodo shards. A few years ago a friend of mine started LICH on Catskills, and it became the largest RP guild on the shard for a few months. I dropped in on them, and it made me sick to be around those people, so I never went back.

    The fights I got into with other RP guilds in the few days I was there was nothing but a huge whine-fest because I was used to Siege PvP, and they didn't think it was good RP to slaughter the enemy like that, I guess. They even accused me of cheating when I withered 3x in a row and killed like 5 of them at once.. It was just sad.. I was amazed at how crappy they were at fighting, so both the RP, and PvP was far from fun there.

    Oh you are using roleplay as a "nice" way of saying cyber. It's completely different. Although there are those that prefer to say roleplay so it doesn't make them sound like a complete idiot, because they prefer pixel sex over the real deal. (yeah and those that cyber feel free to take offense)
