This one comes in and askes for a unpoison and i do, then as normal i hold my hand out for a tip, and after he says thank you... I reply with "show your thanks"
he goes into a whole thing about how he gives the empath a better gem because she didnt ask and all this...well i dont have the log of that part but i save the after effect

(some stuff happend with another character that does not work into it)
but this is what i get

it just bugs me when people are that oblivious to people trying to RP and he tries to insult me in front of the people on Teras to make himself look better... which of course fails but thats another matter
I am done complaining.

It was fine until the 'act yer train' comment. Also, people need to learn that they shouldn't set their tone permanently, as it makes them look stupid.

they are trying to run me off th island i think ::shrugs:: he is not the first to get like that wont be the last im sure

I think your attitude will effect your role, Edine. You play an arrogant person in an island full of elders, I would think to be prepared for things like that to happen. Not saying it's right by any means.

01-30-2004, 10:28 PM
thats not the point, people just dont get that it is RP and take things seriously... hes sitting there telling me I am acting like I have never played the game before because I am diffrent than everyone else there, i dont suck up, im not nice to everyone as they all try to be... thats the point im trying to make, yes im a arrogant ass, but that does not make me a newbie

Stunseed
01-30-2004, 10:52 PM
I agree with you. If you don't fit the mold, you're an outsider in Teras. Like any group, if you're not like them they won't like you. You should know if you play an ass, not all will fawn to your charm. I agree he took it too far, but for you not to expect it...Come on now.

01-30-2004, 11:00 PM
no I do but its obvious its for a diffrent reason than it should be
he is telling me I dont know how to RP with his comments and that I act like i just learned how to play

Stunseed
01-30-2004, 11:12 PM
Well, with people buying Ebay souls left and right, do you blame him? He could have gone at it a different way. His loss, I've never cared for the way Xeroz RP's regardless. If I think someone's a snert, I'd call em out as well. To some people, you might act like certain people who have acquired other souls, knowing you could pull them in to do your dirty work. Dunno tho.

01-30-2004, 11:15 PM
he i dont act like anyone, im pretty sure of that, there are not many The edines out there

01-30-2004, 11:25 PM
Sure bout that? I knew a Cleric about 3 years ago that goaded my 5th train Wizard to the boulder. Someone tried dueling in his stead, only for Xanator to Gate himself in and threaten this person's life. Same "type" of arrogance, at least.

01-30-2004, 11:54 PM
naw i dont goade people into fights, i always warn before i do anything with suggestions to stop like i did there

he left and you fogged to him to continue your speech he told you he didn't want to hear it, and you continued still. i wont say he rp'ed it well but i think saying you didn't prod at him is a bit misleading. again this is just my opinion but i think it was obvious that he didn't want to interact with you but you kept push eventually no matter what it was gonna end poorly.

I agree with Tijay, Edine. If you were not interested in instigating a fight, why did you fog to the guy after he left you?

Agreed wholeheartedly Tijay, though in Edines defense (!?) A good RP opportunity was there for the taking.

Not everyone though wants to roleplay conflict and it's up to the agressor that is truly just RP'ing to try and walk that fine line and use wise judgement.

Heh. Not a thing wrong with instigating a fight. However, when you do, it is best to admit it. ;)

assumptions, no I left to hunt and got just outside the gate before I fogged back in, in responce to his comments about me as usual saying i require a tip

01-31-2004, 11:30 PM
And I was there to instigate a fight, if you know me you would know that it is always my intention, why do you think i warned him not to continue, most people do especially when say bad things will happen to them if they do.... What bothered me about it is he goes from trying to pick a fight with me, but some of the things he said previous (sorry i dont log right now so all i had was what i could scan back on the page for) to crying about how i dont know how to RP in as he considered RP terms

HarmNone
01-31-2004, 11:43 PM
To quote you, Edine:

"naw i dont goade people into fights, i always warn before i do anything with suggestions to stop like i did there"

In this statement you say you do not goad people into fights. Goading people into fights is the same as instigating fights. It was the statement that you do not goad people into fights that prompted Tijay's response, and mine.

Now, you say your intention is always to instigate fights. Which is it? :?:

HarmNone is confuddled

01-31-2004, 11:46 PM
read what I say after that, I always warn them before etc.

01-31-2004, 11:50 PM
let me make it a bit more obvious how i ment it
I dont sit there and walk up to somebody saying I dont like you
prep 302
cast <person i dont like>
people find me and start up with me, and i always give a fair warning before i do anything

HarmNone
01-31-2004, 11:50 PM
I did read that, Edine. That does not change the fact that said you do not goad people into fights, and then said that is always your intention to instigate a fight. Whether or not you warn people does not change that. In fact, you admit that you warn people in a way that will almost ensure a fight, and that you are well aware of it.

HarmNone is not going to mix the subjects to achieve effect

of course im basing my opinions off assumptions you gave us half a log and didn't tell us exactly that you left to hunt etc. what did you expect me to do?

01-31-2004, 11:57 PM
I dont know if i made it obvious enough here

Yet, as you say in your earlier post, you are fully aware that if you state your warning in a certain way, it is going to result in a fight:

>>And I was there to instigate a fight, if you know me you would know that it is always my intention, why do you think i warned him not to continue, most people do especially when say bad things will happen to them if they do.... <<

I agree that he did not roleplay the whole thing well at all. However, Edine's attitude is going to set people off. You are obviously aware of that. Some people will be able to roleplay it out with you. Other people do not wish everything to be a battle royal, and get angry (both as characters and as players, unfortunately) when confronted with characters who enjoy pushing buttons. ;)

as i said I dont start fights so in that sense i dont goad people into fights with me once they initiate it then they are easy to get going and upset.

Right. And you don't sanct afterwards if they're near your train either, right?

02-02-2004, 10:58 AM
Scantuary is a tacticle spell and is usefull in the right situations, but I would like an example of when that happend, I normaly only do that if big brother shows to to pick a fight for the other character

CrystalTears

Minor sanctuary is about the most useless and abused spell in this game. The only time it is worth having is when doing a field rescue, that's about it.

Edine was a chump to Nakiro once. He accepted a challanged dual to the death, and he backed out when he realized he couldn't ward me. Then he threatened me with an implosion rod (which Nakiro probably would've dodged).

As far as Nakiro is concerned, that dual is still on too. Heh. You seem like a pretty big chump to me.

Sheesh. If you weren't trying to pick a fight, why did he keep saying "I don't have anything more to do with you" and you just kept picking at him? He says he doesn't want to hear it. You keep talking. He waves you off. You keep talking. He says he doesn't care for your words and waves you off. You start to warn him. He shuts up and sits down, and you threaten him. He turns away and you tell him he has to answer your question. The guy's no prize, no error, and I hate that stupid fucking word "train" in GS, but how come everything you say is good RP and everything he does is bad RP just because he's dissing you?

Y'know something too? You got the right to be arrogant, and you have the right to demand tips, but no one's forced to love you for it, and it doesn't matter if the Teras people are sweethearts or putzs.

02-02-2004, 12:44 PM
he insulted me prior to the log i posted, why should I let him dictate my reactions to that?

Galleazzo
02-02-2004, 12:57 PM
Hey, how you react to anything is your business. But he ain't here complaining about how your behavior was out of line.

Should've let things go.

BTW, I do agree that using "train" is retarded. He chould've worded what he said different though, and I'd agree entirely from his character's position.

02-02-2004, 01:11 PM
not how Edine is though

Galleazzo
02-02-2004, 01:34 PM
Train IS retarded, but it's like weather. So many friggin people use it you can't scream too much at those who do. Edine handled that part just right.

02-02-2004, 01:42 PM
I'm not going to take a side on this. (Can you believe it!?) But it really irks me when people fuck up a potentially great RP opportunity. I love when people will get into a battle of wits with me and not end up smashing my character into the floor.

People like Xeroz or whatever his name is make me want to bitch slap him and tell him to stop eating paint chips.

DeV
02-02-2004, 02:45 PM
I don't know either of the characters involved, so my opinion is simply that.

From what I could see only ONE person got punked in that arguement or whatever you want to call it. It was not the X guy either. I was waiting for Edine to show him who's boss but you didnt.. Even if you thought the guy wasnt roleplaying well, you continued interacting with him. (I can never get that about people who complain that others roleplay bad: continued interaction on your part does not help them know they suck). Back to the point-- he continually dissrespected you and you did nothing.
What was the point of this thread again?

Hey, I know it took like... almost five years, but if the implication here was that my character has ever been:

a) sold or transferred in any way
b) the threatening sort
c) a wizard

you guys have got me all wrong. Maybe you were thinking Xanitar?
