I have a question about how people feel about people who RP their character, even if other players are not RPing..

Question

Well, this might sound silly, but I'm a girl who really enjoys RPing. However I have not found a clan that focuses on RPing. So this has put me in an annoying circumstance.

 

i often find myself RPing my character in missions with total strangers. Does this bother people at all, or do you think other players would accept my goofy style of playing and find it enjoyable. I would love to know what you think the community thinks? and while I do enjoy it, I grow concerned I may come off as just plain weird...  I'm just wondering if it's kind of charming or that no one really cares about my childish nature.

 

ciuld anyone offer me some advice?

RPing is something I've never really understood the appeal of and quite frankly it just comes off as weird to me. That said, it's your game as much as it is any other player so you should feel absolutely comfortable enjoying the game how you see fit within the boundaries of the EULA.

So I'll trype out statements here and there to give other players an idea of what my Ivara is like.

I can't see why anyone would have a problem with this.  In-game chat isn't very intrusive, so I'd say go ahead and have fun.  If anyone doesn't like it, they are free to leave squad or put you on ignore.

the thing is RP relies heavily on lore to draw from- MMOs have this in abundance but Warframe is a looter-shooter with a very bizarre story that doesn't follow itself.

The second problem is majority of WF players are: wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am they just want in- kill everything and repeat not think up amazing adventures on why you're there: why I play solo as I love to explore each and every map and try to strategically work through not:- "BBOOOOOOYYYAAAAHHHH!!! Dakka-dakka-dakka! home for a curry and Netflix in two minutes. That's why you'll find RP outside MMOs is rarer than an honest politician

You're TOTALLY right about that. But you don't need the deepest most elaborate lore. Your characters and experiences as a bio-mechanical entity with human psychologies. A.K.A.Transhumanism! Now THAT'S AS INTERESTING as it gets! XD

Currently I'm #*!%ing up... Saturn?... Or the planet after it? I watched what lore one could find in WF's  narrative and honestly it's simple but more than enough to make a neat gathering of RP'ers exploring the galaxy and killing robots and clones as samurai space-mem robots!

I really recommend doing them, as majority of playerbase will have and will be using it, I sure would as it is the lore from which our RP is born :p

Rp'ing isn't all that weird, but you should be considerate of other players and not drag them into your rp without asking first.

Oh I assure you I don't do that. I mainly just play the game and type out dialogue along the missions to give it some narrative kick. Does that make sense? :/

EULA? What's that?

End user license agreement. Enjoy the game how you see fit without breaking the rules. If you like to RP, then RP and have fun. 👍

Thanks. Don't worry I'm not an ERPING perv, I just grew up writing and playing DnD as a kid, so it's kind of a hobby of mine. I just like to have  character development and  a story that lines up with the Warframe universe. Again, thanks guys.

I'm not personally into generally roleplaying, but I can appreciate it in some way. I have noticed some clans based around roleplay on PC, although I've never joined any and I don't see them often. But, they are there.

I'll have to keep a look out. Thanks Necroped! Btw my name is Danielle if you just want to talk to me anytime. Username: Saryn-Lady

 

Thanks guys! And again if you find an RP clan please let me know of it isn't too inconvenient. <3

Any noisy chatter can potentially be obnoxious in a hectic mission.  However, whether or not it's charming depends on whether or not you yourself are charming.  If I had to suggest guidelines, I'd say avoid pretending things happened that didn't.  That blows right past cringe into obnoxious territory for me.  Keep the amount of it to the amount of normal chatter that would be considered friendly, mid-mission chat is NOT the place to share your fanfic.  If you can't say it "in character" as concisely as you would ooc, then maybe go with the concise version.  Ultimately, you do you.

Personally, I don't think I would mind, but can you give me an example of what this would look like?  I presume that RPing would include completing the mission objectives, so as long as you're doing that, I can't see why anyone would be bothered.

Awe. Did you guys have bad experiences with neckbearded rpers? No, no. I like to work with the events happening on each missions, and not throw in my own BS fanfic addition. I just think Warframe is such a great universe to have a Roleplaying session. But I could be alone of that I suppose.

Sure no problem. Typically my character would show up to help other Tenno as she has much faith on space mom. So my Ivara is somewhat quiet, and REALLY hates the Grinder In particular. So I'll trype out statements here and there to give other players an idea of what my Ivara is like. Honestly she's a lot of fun, And I had acquired many fans who joined me a little over a year before I my ps4 broke, so I lost my possy. :/

Honestly, I've never been super into RP myself, but I think it could be entertaining from time to time. A change of pace. Having played this game for so long, just running in, murdering everything and extracting ASAP gets old.

I'm on PC though, so I can't join you unfortunately.

Thanks Doc. I swear I'm not a weirdo! It reminds me of acting, which I LOVE to acting! I've received many compliments in the past, and even had about 10 or 12 people (who were not interested in RP originally) only to later come and join me in my embarrassing , yet captivating RP sessions!

I assure you, I am extremely fair! ^_^

In fact I've been told numerous times my involvements enrich the experience. Not to toot my own horn, but I've been told I'm a wonderful player AND Roleplayer! A shame my friends poof since I haven't played in months. :/

I'm an ex- The Sha'tar EU WoW player: back then you were IC every interaction unless you put a ((Hi)) message up for player-to-player chat. I RP'd on a forum for ten years and so I see why it can be rewarding and fun- just let the party know beforehand or you can get a lot of grief for it *nods*
