  1. I'm very glad to see a series like this!  I've had a lot of fun with combat RP's in the past, but I had to limit them to players I knew well, for a lot of the reasons outlined above.  

     

    I think the biggest issue (one which I'm certain you'll cover in detail later) is dealing with undetermined outcomes.  Assuming a fairly equal balance between players, at least one of them is going to have to make an OOC decision about whether to lose or not.  If this decision is made too early, the RP isn't as fun, as you're just going through the motions for a predetermined outcome; and if it's delayed too long, the whole thing drags very unpleasantly.


  2. Plus, this isn't an adventure or even combat designated roleplay...has more to do with horror. At least in my view.

    I know that now; your thread did a good job of getting that point across, and when I realized that, I had a lot of fun putting Prince Blueblood through the paces. I just wish I'd known that at the outset; I'm not usually a big fan of horror, so I miss the tropes and cues.


  3. That's very interesting!

    I don't have much in specific in the way of commentary; most of my character development tends to happen in RP's; a lot of the time simply interacting with other players will bring out facets of a character that I hadn't considered much in profile writing, or suggest routes of development that I would never have thought of on my own. What sort of things Virtue's travel companions would bring out of him might prove interesting. Perhaps a nakama would give him guidance towards operating in a family?
