Role Playing Games: The Not-So-Newbies to Avoid!
by R. Anne
Iron Realms rpg games offer a fantastic way for true newbies to experience the rpg game, by allowing older players to personally guide them as an official mentor! There are some bonuses to a mentor/protege relationship, such as faster experience when hunting together, but some "newbies" aren't always new! If you know what we're talking about, read on and share your newbie horror stories in the comments!
The Leave Me Be Protégé
If you experience meeting this sort of rpg game protégé you often find that you can do nothing for them because they won't answer you. Rather than take any help offered, they respond with silence. You have no idea if you are doing a good or bad job you get little feedback. They move through their tasks with ease and read just what is required. They really do not go above and beyond what is expected, but they follow the rules. They're the role playing game protégé who is neither friend nor foe; they simply need an rpg game mentor because it's what is required to advance in the house. Rather than beating them with a stick, you wish that you never took them on as a rpg game protégé because they do average work and contribute little in the mentor relationship.
The Lolalt comes from in-game only to vex you, your house, and your city. The goal of this protégé is to spy or to make your life hell. Usually bearing a grudge, he or she arrives only to vex you until you want to pull your hair out. The rpg game Lolalt does little work, and mainly stands around figuring out ways to prevent you from being in game. Lolalt may also serve another purpose. He or she takes on a mentor only to spy for another house or city and to report back what he or she finds when they become the other true persona, a violation of HELP SECONDS!
The Needy One
This rpg game protégé is the sort who needs help with everything. He or she seldom listens to your advice or pointers. Rather than read, you find yourself bombarded with question after question until you are ready to beat them with a stick. Trust me, dear reader, we've all encountered this sort before in game and we toss our hands up in the air when they arrive, often running for a place off plane to avoid them at all cost. When the Needy One does not get the answer, hint, or help to solve a puzzle or quest, he or she blames you for being a bad rpg game mentor
