Farcry11 Posted October 25, 2014 Share Posted October 25, 2014 Hey, Aurora. Resident charismatic machoman Farcry11 here. Lately, I've been thinking about the concept of non-antag criminal RP. What I mean by this is things like drug dealing, bribery, blackmail, etc etc. Personally, I think that as long as it's done well, it can really spice up a round. For example: the chemist making designer drugs, and selling them through a mildly incompetent assistant (science, bitch!) or a security guard taking bribes to ignore minor crimes or give information on security operations. I feel that this sort of RP can make a round more complex than "crewmen vs antagonists". Wouldn't it be nice if, as a traitor, you could have the chance to bribe a security officer who caught you stealing rather than getting stunned and cuffed instantly? Or ICly augment your earnings by fencing stolen goods or selling drugs? "Hey scrub," some of you might be asking, "why would NanoTrasen ever hire people who would commit such dastardly bastardly deeds?". To that, I say: why would they hire 90% of our characters in the first place? We've got a buttload of former criminals, people with questionable mental and emotional stability, religious nuts, and possible Symdie collaborators. Surely we have enough wiggle-room to work in some wholesome, crime based, story enriching (and probably non-canon) RP. But those are just my opinions on the matter. I'd like to hear all of your guys' views on the idea of non-antag crime. Quote Link to comment
