Role play is a mistery

Recommended Posts

What is Role play RP

Before I thought that role play was for been in a new civilisation or in age ago. But in SL

RP is sex. Am I right

RP is when you speak "/me nods"

RP do you need to know lot of vocabulary because it is written descriptive. It could be a good exercice in class to use and learn how to write.

RP it is for advance user in SL

 

That is all my conclusion after some reasearch. Can you correct me or tell me if you agree or not

ROle-play is play-acting. Think of it as being n actor in a stage or movie, you take on the personality of someone you are not - perhaps an evil demon (which you obviously are not) - say things you wouldn't normally, act in ways you wouldn't normally and so on. That's what "role play" is by definition.

Sex in SL could be thought of as role-play, and by definition, just logging into SL is "role-play) - but it's not thought of or treated as role-playing, except by the creeps and perverts skirting the edges of ToS (from what I've been seeing).

I don't think you did quite enough research.

Roleplay is wen you play a role - sex crazy sugar dad can be one...

Emoting (typing /me) is what you do when you cannot afford to buy animations,... it is juat ome way to roleplay

advanced users do stuff - but roleplay can be joined by bloody newbs - you need no editing skills for that.

If you could tell me where to buy the full set of animations underlined below in red, I'd be eternally grateful ;)

*rushes in from stage left, snatching the pipe from Skell's hand as she flashes past, then suddenly comes to a screeching halt*

"What a bummer!" she wails, "It's only tobacco!"

*tosses the pipe in Skell's direction and makes a pell mell exit, stage right*

Was a shepherd’s crook used to assist in the exit?

Yep, the "Vaudeville Hook".

Snagglepuss, the character I had in mind, used "Exit, stage left/right" to announce his escapes...
 

 


Looney Tunes and Hanna-Barbera reels were a staple of our summer movie evenings out in the barn. When I type in chat, I'll sometimes correct myself by typing the intended word in the next line, followed by "even", a tip of the hat to those childhood memories.

I've seen others (like Selene) use Snagglepuss tropes, many of them far too young to have seen him, so I think he's entered our collective consciousness.

This is probably the most inaccurate description of roleplaying o have ever seen.

When you roleplay, you are taking on the role of a character and play out/acting the way they would. That's it.

For some people, simply logging into SL is roleplaying for them because their avatar is a different person.

For some, roleplaying is an activity for writing stories while having something to look at.

For some, roleplaying is no different than improvised theatre. You don't need poetic writing skills because you are talking like a person, not writing a story.

For most people who have sex, I doubt they are roleplaying at all. They are probably just hopping onto a sex pose and watching their avatars pretend to rub against each other. However, I'm sure there are people that roleplay sex and some might do it quite well.

But roleplaying is far more than long form writing and sex poses.

 Some people like being a different type of avatar, they may be a Cyborg or an Elf or something fictional, they may only wear the items of clothing or attachments that make them look as such, which would be just dressing with a theme type in mind and it may stop there, they would be the same as they would in any type of look. 

If they were to Role Play a Cyborg, they may stop mid conversation and have to chare up a battery and unable to speak to you for ten minutes, they may only visit sims where Cyborgs would not seem out of place. An Elf may only visit fantasy inspired sims, they may type in Elvish with others that want to RP Elfs also, and so on. 

Some people may build a community in Second Life and have Roles for each member of that community, my friend used to live on such a sim where there were crimes committed a police force, fire brigade, there was a town hall with Mayor and so on and everyone played along with that idea. 

There is a Hogwarts inspired sim, where the visitors stay in character (role play) that they attend the school and are training to be Wizards. 

There have been some pretty famous in Second Life characters over the years, people that have created a look, style, voice/text persona to use in Second Life to blog, machinema etc, and they have been wonderful and when the cameras are off or the blogging etc stopped they revert to their 'real' selves. 

Sex is not roleplay really unless you are playing at a character throughout the situation, such as role playing a horny business man that is seducing someone roleplaying an escort etc, there is such a thing as sexual role play but not usually what people are referring to in SL. 

If someone is using RP as a negative towards sex play in SL, such as Second Life is just a whole lot of people roleplaying sex, that is just a statement not a fact, and such a boring presumption.

I'm sure he means when he is roleplaying a character that is also roleplaying, in character. Kinda like inception, it can get complicated, so I understand why its a mystery to him.

ATM machine is something totally different, that's the machine that makes ATM's.
