Would this be bad or troll RP?

Recommended Posts

Faith    733

So normally you just have a mix of same personality characters; however I was wondering if it would be bad or troll rp if there was a character who believed that the infected could talk to them and they could talk to the infected. Even though this would probably be a mental insane/ill person I was just wondering. It'd be interesting to see someone talking to a infected and when someone shoots it they will go ballistic like "They were in the peocess of being themselves again you bastard!"

Thoughts?

As in many situations, the quality of the role-play determines whether or not the whole thing is trollish or not. If you're going to just do it, and not make it apparent to those around you, then it may come off to be trollish. My question to you is: if you were to have a character that believes he/she can communicate with the dead, how would you go about it?

Let's place a scenario... I come across you camping on the outskirts of Chernogorsk. There are some infected nearby, but not close enough to attack. You invite me by the fire. What do you do? What do you say during our conversation?

I don't know if I'd play the character but it was more of an idea. If however I was to play a chracter like this, if we heard the zombie growl my character would go silent for a moment, probably nod or shake his or her head in understanding and shout back something whatever conversation I would make up. She/he would probably be a gypsy like person. Thinking she has a gift to speak to the dead/undead. I'd also probably say "Ah, welcome, I was just having a nice chat with (add name here.)"

Nothing is wrong with that said character. It's trolly only if you make it trolly, and trust me you will know if you are getting to that point. It's fine,had crazy before, will have crazy to come.

No, not in my opinion.

As long as their is a real disease where something like that is a symptom, and you include emotes to show that you're seriously roleplaying it, then it sounds like great RP and something different. Give it a shot! :D

If you do it good it won't be trolly. I'd love to meet a character like that. One of my buddies used to keep an infected follow him and he said that he/she had a name and was his friend. He also had long conversations with it. It was really enjoyable but hard to keep finding new infected every restart.

As long as you aren't acting stupid in RP, it sounds like it could be a good idea.

Yeah it doesnt sound like it would be bad RP as long as you play it out correctly and appropriately.

I'll echo the sentiments that pretty much everyone here has expressed.

Perhaps your character is schizophrenic and confuses the voices in his/her head as emanating from the infected. I could see this character creating a lot of good conflict and discussions about the morality of killing infected. Best of luck with this idea!

Edit: I also think it would be useful to create some sort of trauma that your character has experienced that could facilitate their insanity. A good background story always helps to bring these characters to life.

Seems like a good idea to me. I honestly don't consider anything trolly except for that one guy who said he was a professional vsco player. Other than hat I have seen some weird rp and it's been great!

Rampage used to play a character that did that, to a degree, his character believed the world was unchanged, zombies were normal people etc. It did not appear trolly at all and as a lot of people have already mentioned it's only trolly if you make it trolly.

It's all about how you do it, if it's roleplayed out well then it wouldn't be trolly in the slightest. I'd say give it a go, it could be very interesting.

There is no limit to roleplay aslong as it is done correctly. I had a similar idea where I was planning on being an "Officer" who has lost his mind and thinks life is still normal, Trying to arrest zombies, asking for help escorting to prison for booking ect. Its all down to how the RPer portrays, nothing is forbidden aslong as it is done tastefully and well.

IMO it could be plausible, if in the characters backstory they were at some point recently isolated, since we are social creatures if we get isolated our brain, looking out for us and wanting us to feel reassured, will conjure up imaginary friends to accompany you, if your character has been isolated for long enough, their mind could easily put this imaginary friend who is talking to you into the body of an undead since it will back up your reassurance with a physical entity that is human-like. This does also have drawbacks though, such as your character may even imagine people who he/she is walking with to be their imaginary friend, and may respond to their imaginary friend while looking directly at someone else who hasn't spoken, causing a lot of confusion. But hey, if you wanna try it, they option is there and it's only trollish if you make it so. :)
