Character Idea

Recommended Posts

I have an idea for a character that might walk a few lines in the rules so I figured I'd pitch it here first to the staff----

In short, the character would have a simple backstory- in the region for a hunting trip or something, but, as the outbreak begins and he is trapped longer and longer fighting for his life, he goes a bit senile. As time progresses, he becomes more and more convinced that we survivors are trapped in some kind of survival simulation- or, if you'll humor me- a video game.

 

So in short, my idea is a character who went insane and thinks we're in a game. As I type this out I feel less and less confident that this would be allowed but I feel like it'd be hilarious so I gotta shoot my shot. Thanks in advance!

Personally I would not advice this...Im almost 100% that people will see it as trolling all the time unless done really really well. I'd say don't, do something else IMO.

You could definitely have a character that's gone mental and who believes he's in a simulation, there are already lots of theories/conspiracies about that in rl. But maybe survival video game is too specific?

Always do someting that you enjoy and be happy with what you want to roleplay. Most importantly. Be genuine. But more important, make sure you know the rules. And in doubt regarding doing someting to a person ingame. remember the // if in doubt. If you have any questions, shoot me a PM

Maybe if he just has a sort of nihilistic "Doesn't matter, it's a simulation, anyways" attitude, making him extremely cynical, or something?

I'd say re-frame it as a nihilist.

The world is ending, nothing matters, death is inevitable.

instead of:

We are in a video game, lmao dont worry ill just respawn.

To add on to what the others have already said, just be mindful of those around you (your fellow RPers) as these sorts of characters can be extremely annoying and seem trolly and whatever you do try not to make the character seem trolly otherwise you'll get into a whole heap of trouble.

All backstories are checked over by our staff members if staff deem it ok then it will be all good as long as it is not trolly I don't see a problem.

People have tried that before, and I can say with certainty that 90% of them were reported for trolling. You truly have to be really good at doing whatever you want to do for this to work

It is indeed possible, but however, impractical and unrecommended. It won't be fun for your fellows unless they know what you are doing, otherwise, it will just be seen as a FailRP, or whatever, report

I do not like or recommend this at all. It's a no from me.

Roleplaying that the world is a game is a iffy and grey zone situation.

I'd say no
