IRE Asks: How Separate is Your Character's Personality?
I think it's safe to say we all know our character aren't real and are just virtual avatars in a free-to-play MMORPG. However, when you enter the rich fantasy world, do you truly 'role play' and assume personality traits completely unfamiliar to yourself, or is your character an extension of the player behind the screen?
To some, role play is the name of the game. Their character will never act in the game without first weighing those actions against their character's set of morales. This sort of player probably prefers to remain in-character through all forms of communication; you won't find them in any OOC clans!
However, some players prefer more casual role play. They might play the character of an evil Knight and become involved in RP events, but you might find them chatting on a PvP clan, trading combat tips with players who might be members of enemy organizations in the grand storyline of things.
So which are you? The die-hard role player, never going out-of-character, or are you a casual Knight? Tell us in the comments below!
