Yes, I'm suggesting that if the POs of guards/jailors are not interested in roleplaying their parts face to face in the prison, they probably should rethink that line of RP. What's the point of that RP if the POs involved don't want to play it out in game?Grokk wrote:In that sense, POs do put characters in jail for RP. But I don't think that seems to be the sense in which you meant it. Because how does PO responsibility come into the picture? What are you suggesting? That if a guard PO is not going to log on and RP with an imprisoned PO, their character shouldn't be arrested in the first place? I don't understand why we start speaking in terms of POs and their RP responsibilities as soon as prison becomes involved, but never anywhere else. If that was repeated across all areas of the game, then fine. But its not.
The only characters this topic applies to are characters that do something in extreme opposition of some of the most powerful characters in game or characters that PK a lot. I don't think it matters if you can't RP with one character for a few days because you stole. Maybe a character's PO should rethink their RP if they don't want to be locked up. I think the only sensible solution is accepting an execution (which would be most realistic) or putting up with the jail time. Otherwise the RP aspect of the game is shot.Kamilar wrote: Yes, I'm suggesting that if the POs of guards/jailors are not interested in roleplaying their parts face to face in the prison, they probably should rethink that line of RP.

We aren't talking about the RP responsibilities as they apply in the rest of the game because that's not what we're talking about. If you think we need to talk about it, make another thread and we will.
Yup, makes the whole being in jail- thing a whole lot more easier to digest when you can do something else as you wait for the sentence to end. You did a bad deed (unless you're innocent in which case you're free to make a scene out of it), you sit for it. I don't know if there are actual periods of time that are given to you upon jailing but if it gets out of hand, can't you just PM a GM (sounds like a line from a rap- song) something like: "Yo dude, my char's been inside tha rock for way too long, dog, I need liberation from this repression"?Elijah wrote:The whole "RP in jail" sentiment doesn't make a whole lot of sense. You have 5 character slots.
Even worse when players go around causing revolutions that no one can do anything about because it takes from their RP.Kamilar wrote:This is the point exactly. A handful of players taking RP away from other players on a whim is bad for the game.Elijah wrote: I did a practical RP option and took away your RP.
Kamilar wrote:Also bad for the game is having one or two players decide what sort of roleplay is permitted and letting them ban the characters that don't fit into their gameworld view.
Nobody else is talking about this problem. No one else even sees this as the problem.Kamilar wrote:A handful of players taking RP away from other players on a whim is bad for the game.
