To begin I would like to start by saying "day two" does not mean actual physical days, just when I get a chance to make a write up, I have actually been playing for 3-4 days, and have spent about 15 hours in game so far, so not too bad.
So I was on a quest for a Hobbit, to go collect something like pipe-weed or some such. When I arrived on the scene there was another person standing next to the quest NPC. I went up to the NPC and did my usual RP deal and started speaking to the NPC saying responses to the NPC as it it were a real person. In the past this has engaged some interesting and humerous responses from people, making for some good roleplaying. This time however was different, because the approach to the speach with the NPC was serious and not humerous. The person standing next to me turns and say's "Are you talking to the NPC like its a real person?" and I replied "O cut the odd talk, Elf! What is an NPC?". The man then said to me...
"Dont even try to play this off, that is just wierd!" and walked away. So lesson one folks: choose your roleplaying wisely, and do not make bad roleplaying by making situations akward for those around you.
Another Fallacy of todays roleplaying experiance for me was when I was engaged in a conversation with an obviously better and more skilled RPer in disagreement. I spoke as if I were a bandit, brigand, what have you, because in game I am a Buglar. Well at the end of our long arguement I said to him "Well good sir, you certainly have the same honor and are as venerable as I". Then in front of the crowd he said in OOC: "Honor? Your class is Brigand, all you do is Steal shit! and stab people in the back!". Of course the OOC laughed, so did I, it was funny!, Also it was a further sign that my roleplaying was simply not what it should be, and that I was not getting deep into my character, and showed that most of my RP was actually Forced, and did not flow right.
Being an actor myself I took this to heart as a time to start back at the beginning of my character and kind of look as his small beginning and try and see where he was at now development wise. I say this because in theatre you must often make up a backround or a destination for your character to further his motivation. Today I had no motivation, I was simply doing some "Bad Acting" or "Roleplaying" in this instance.
