I was thinking of the whole RP thing and being able to keep our characters in tact without stepping on family mores.
I was thinking we might form an RP guild. Everything in RP Guild chat would be IC, unless specifically stated otherwise. On my ESO beta survey I mentioned that showing ESO IDs in guild chat was difficult for RP and aske if they would consider an RP-type "window" in chat or an option to display character names instead of IDs. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has brought up the subject of RP and fine-tuning the mechanism.
I am completely down with what Fog is saying, and thinks we need to state from the get go that "anything that goes on the road, stays on the road." That is, are RP characters do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the guild member or the guild.
I would love for us to be free to be hostile towards each other until friendships grow (between our characters) or a cool tolerance is reached. Just like in RL, you can't absolutely love everyone.
As a Breton from The Reach, I'm really going to be torn between two worlds. Not knowing any of the xenophobic, arrogant high elves personally, I feel no real affiliation to them as ancestors. But I completely expect to be ostracized by my Nord "brethren" until we find a common ground. Will I curse a wood elf under my breath for not having the same magika capability as even a Breton? Maybe. Will it take longer for me to warm up to an Argonian simply due to my unfamiliarity with them as a race and their mysterious society? Probably.
These are what I categorize as "mature" themes. You don't have to be mature to cuss like a sailor (again, no offense to sailors, my dad was in the Navy), or say, "...that's what she said." after everything remotely referencing.....who am I kidding, many folks throw this line out no matter what is said. And you don't have to be mature to throw out explicit sexual references. Judging from what I know of this family so far I'm sensing alot of nodding heads in agreement.
Subtle sexual innuendo, flirting, that kind of thing comes up among adults. As does, sabotage, murder, generosity, empathy, and stealing the last sweert roll and blaming it on the Ninja Bosmer--or better yet, the Ninja Bosmer stealing the sweet roll and blaming the clumsy Nord.
I apologize for the long post, but you now have bragging rights for making it to the end.
BTW, there will be a quiz at the end of the period.
