Recently, Kate and I have been having some fun doing something revolutionary that we haven't done before, and that only a handful of people do; roleplaying in a roleplaying game.
As many of you know, Kate and I both play World of Warcraft, a MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game). A few days ago we created two new characters on a new server (which will remain unnamed, to protect the innocent). We had a grand ole time, actually; relaxed in a nice little bar, met some people and made some friends. Yeah, roleplaying in a roleplaying game; who knew it could be fun?
Seriously though, this is something Kate and I have wanted to do for a long time; we both enjoy RPGs and were both, I think, disappointed at the lack of roleplaying in WoW. Indeed, RP is somewhat looked down on as somewhat stupid by the majority of players. Those are the same people that I would classify under the "twitch-happy spazbot" label and proceed to do my best to avoid. WoW even has specific servers which they designate "roleplaying" servers and even on those ones you still get people who complain about it. I don't understand why people act surprised when they play a RPG and people want to Role Play. Too many people out there just don't think.
