Farcry11 Posted October 25, 2014 Share Posted October 25, 2014 So, there was very recently a heated debate about fear RP in OOC. The whole thing arose from an unarmed, non-combat-trained doctor rushing a nuke op, disarming him, picking up his gun, reloading it on the fly, and killing him with it. This should not happen. No way. No how. There's a reason nuke ops, changelings, and other antags tend to be so violent and "ganky". It's because they KNOW that the average player would sooner try to rush and kill them than actually RP being a real, normal person. If I were a nuke op, and I came upon multiple unarmed civilians, my first instinct would be to put a bullet in someone- as a warning and as self defense. Because in situations where you and your friends are in danger, the most primal human emotion ceases to matter, right? "But Farcry, fear = adrenaline and adrenaline = badass motherfucker mode!" No. Adrenaline does NOT transform you from a scared civilian in to fucking Rambo. If you want to refute me on this, post evidence, but I'm 99.99% sure that that is not how that shit works. At all. The adrenaline excuse is a lame cop-out that many people use to avoid fear RP. But why do people avoid fear RP? Are they afraid of losing? As far as I was aware, we're playing this game to tell an engaging, at least somewhat believable story- not to win. We should start acting like it. And this is why I implore all of you unarmed noncombatants out there... The next time an unspeakable awful transforming monster barrels down the hall, or you're confronted with a trained, well equipped terrorist, or a wizard is summoning hell-demons... Don't rush them. Don't take their weapons out of their hands and murder them and end their round. Actually act like a human being- you know, roleplay. Because this a roleplaying server. That's my rant on the matter. Post your opinions, because truly, this is a debate that needs to be had. Quote Link to comment
