Roleplay Insights of the Week


Grab your popcorn! This is what you may have missed this past week:


Seems there is an uptick in "wild" animal attacks around Ashmore that or everyone is visiting Ashmore Health to get in all unnecessary procedures before deductibles reset at the beginning of the year.


Just a reminder, when you are approached by a wild animal or a sex crazed supernatural

  • When you first encounter a wild animal, you should remain calm and not startle it. ...

  • Start backing away and make yourself look bigger. ...

  • Make human noises. ...

  • Make sure to give the animal space to leave. ...

  • Carry and learn how to use bear spray. ...

  • Stay as far away if possible.

Can someone please call a family therapist for the folks over at Lazarus? They are really struggling.


Remember the Phrals and folks toying with the past well they may have learned their lesson....

"Possessed by those in the past

two groups of Phrals

break apart

one to end magic

the other to stop it

regardless of the victor

the results are tragic."

(Quote and photo credit to to Ryder (tristan.trellis)





One last note: Apparently the APD folks are getting a bit thick around the middles, barely able to fit into their winter gear, and ask that carrots and apples be delivered in lieu of donuts. Captain Fleur you can only blame baby weight for so long.

 

ROLEPLAY TIPS AND REMINDERS


Consent 101


Definition: con·sent - permission for something to happen or agreement to do something.


Why is this important to understand in the world of role-play? Because role-play is a collaborative event that takes place with two or more individuals.


When should consent be sought out? In situations like ERP (even if the scene is “non-consent” in nature), Crime (clearing it with the business or victim - some crimes could require consent from Law Enforcement, Life-events (like death, pregnancy, siring, etc).


Can consent be rescinded? Yes it can. Many reasons could lead up to why someone would want to rescind consent. Perhaps the scene has become uncomfortable or there are OOC reasons not to continue. If that happens, story lines should be revised to help all players find a collective agreement on how to end the story or pivot it. "If you do not intend to play the scene, if your answer is NO, do not RP responses that could be construed as YES even if the “aggressor” didn’t ask you directly, and make sure you IM them and say NO. You could probably then both agree to RP a phasing out scene that could work." You can read more about this on Kali's blog.


If a consent situation arises and players cannot agree, please reach out to a Community Lead. We would love to help you find an amicable resolution that allows all parties to be happy.


Have a great week Unnatural and remember don't add to the population. Don't subtract from the population. Stay out of the hospital, newspaper, and jail. If you do end up in jail, establish dominance quickly.
