let your character fuck up. please. let them fuck up on a scale so massive that this particular thing cannot be salvaged. let their fuck up have permanent consequences. and stoooooooooooooooop having them being the smartest person in the room who always has a sharp comeback to put their enemies down, and who always handles their enemies with grace or at least an air of superiority that s justified because they’re so cool and smart and clever™ 

let them bleed for their mistakes, let them MAKE those mistakes, and let that bleeding be ugly and disgraceful. let them suffer for their own mistakes, and let them suffer in knowing that they cannot fix. and let other people hate them for the shit they’ve done, and for once let the haters not be ‘petty bad people’.

Let the haters be right.

People just don't get it...my teenage blood elf spellblade ninja assassin is just too skilled to ever lose, he has been training since he was a fetus, his runeblade can cut trough anything, and even if he got hit he has a healing factor due to experiments and shit, aswell as runes on his body that give him resistance to ALL kinds of magical attacks.

Well that's where your robot cannot stand up to the slobber of Xathus so clearly I am superior unusual character; Clearly!

But on topic, characters need flaws, make them feel human (i.e flaws, hopes, memories, emotions etc)

neth, man

you do this thing where whenever there's a post about a general topic, you gotta go in and make it about your characters. you used to do it with grav and now you're doing it with alpha. chill dude, it's not always about you.

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

In any event, I feel like well-timed application of mistakes, and the process of recovering from them is at its essence 'story-conflict' which is just the bread and butter of any good storytelling. To err is human, and so, it really helps dispel that 'godly avatar who is impervious' thing if your characters at the very least, seem to be hiding something from their past, some sort of mistake they've made and are in recovery from, or actively make some err and how they respond to it vs. how others respond to it. It can be stressful for the roleplayer but it's good.

 

On the same note though, I don't think people should go /out of their way/ to make errors and mistakes and to fuck up so badly. As I said above, these sorts of things, to really be impactful to a story need to be well-timed. If a character is constantly messing up it becomes 2 things:

A) your character is just seen as a fuckup, and every time they fuck up it becomes less and less impactful and just part of your gag

B ) your character becomes an OOCly driven passive agressive "haha im gona be a better roleplayer than everyone else look at how often i mess up haha > : )" which is never good

 

idk that's my two cents on the matter. I feel like errors and the like are what really make plot interesting, but I don't think we should fault others for not having their characters make conscious mistakes so much as just realize that it makes their characters less interesting to be around, and that's at their own expense. No one wants to hang out with /that guy/ even icly.

it's always about me fam :)

i think i do this out of boredom but w/e sorry lol. i'll shut up now i have my flaws too. 

 

i agree with this though. you don't have to literally go ahead and make a character as flawed as possible as some kind of attempt to be "superior" to other players and bark about it constantly.

I suggest having a character based on a very simplistic concept and have it progress in RP, but while doing so, keep in mind that you're not always in control of what happens.

Recently I feel like there's this tendency to have incidents in phases be in the control of one or more players rather than having the results of interactions occur at random, which is more interesting as you won't always be able to deal with the consequences flawlessly. If your character gets away with everything flawlessly, there's a... problem? And do not turn it into an OOC shitfest because you can't control the situation and have it go in your character's favor.

 

Flaws should just be a natural thing in RP and even if "magic can fix everything" it seems rather boring to have a character that can fix every problem...

sexi milf draenei

 

smirks at u

 

nonetheless losing all the time isnt good either. really dont like the "less is more" mentality that plagues some people on rph. they get this weird superiority complex because their character is "worse off" than someone else's.

a person can win all the time and still be interesting. its all about the story and the mindset of the character. judge on the narrative, not how much a character is bleeding rofl. honestly, characters that win at great cost emotionally or otherwise i find far more interesting than people who just seem to oocly accept defeat all the time because its "good rp"

 

balance and harmony is good. ;^)
