Vicars and Tarts at Lazarus - May 20th, 5pm SLT


We are thrilled to announce this themed soirée, where guests are encouraged to embrace their playful sides and dress up as either a distinguished vicar or a sassy tart.

Doors open at 5pm SLT with DJ Kyra. The vibrant ambiance, enhanced by carefully selected music, will set the perfect tone for an enjoyable evening of revelry.


To ensure everyone's comfort, we kindly request that guests arrive dressed in their best interpretation of a vicar or a tart.

RP TIP OF THE WEEK


Why to Avoid Negative Thought Posts


What is a Negative thought post?


A player will post thinking a negative thought about another player or a situation. The post is done as a thought or emote instead of dialogue, leaving the other players in the scene often unable to react to it.


Example of a negative thought post:

Lexie watches Kali walk into the Bad Moon, her first impression of the woman is that she is slut/whore/bitch.. (put your insult in here). She offers Kali a warm smile and a hello when she comes over.


In this post Kali gets to only react what her character sees, she doesn't get a chance to respond to the mean part of the post. Only the smile.


This type of RP is poor form. In RL, no one can read your minds. But in RP we can. So it would be more fair if you have something negative to say, then you actually have your character say it.

If you are not willing to have your character say it out loud, then don't hide behind your characters thoughts especially to take an IC jab at someone.


We understand that your character might be angry or mad. Use facial expressions to give nonverbal cues. Perhaps they are cringing at someones outfit. You could say something like "Leah's brows raised, her eyes widen looking over Jessica's patchwork dress."


Negative thoughts should be either verbal or an action in which the other player can choose to play off or or not. This gives players the opportunity to see the reaction of your character's face and ask what is up.


Negative thought emotes can often lead to OOC Drama.. So play nice.. if you character doesn't have the guts to say it the person's face and face the consequences of saying...then don't think it.


Enjoy your week Unnatural
