Just read the FWTOW RP Guide

by Gypsy » 12 Apr 2014, 15:32

Its a very well written guide, so nice job on that. It also has me a bit nervous to make a RP post (once we start) as there are allot of different forums and sub forums for different tiers and such. I hope at least at first the mods here will be patient if at first a post is in the wrong place.

Also I'm a bit confused about the section on God Modding, that is I don't understand what it is? I read the details of what it is:

-Overpowering your character.

-Claiming to land hits, ranged or melee, on other player characters without their consent.

-Killing other player characters without their consent.

But I don't understand it? Is this in reference to in game actions? For example:

-Overpowering your character:
How is this even possible? Does this mean don't buy stuff for your ship your not supposed to?

-Claiming to land hits, ranged or melee, on other player characters without their consent:
Huh?

-Killing other player characters without their consent:
?? You can't kill another player ship unless they give you permission? I can't imagine that this is what the above means, can you explain better what this refers to?

I apologize if these are stupid questions and are probably obvious to others, but I'm a bit confused (I'm a moron lol) as to what they mean.

This is in regard to forum based text RP.

Godmodding or as I know it 'Powergaming' is when you simply assert that you are able to do something to another character. Fortunately this is why we have a game that figures out when the lasers hit for us.

The RP guide mostly covers text-based roleplaying topics. But yes, this wouldn't really be an issue in the game proper.
Blame DarkForce, he wasn't clear about it.
