I think I'm going to take a break. I know I just got here, but I've had so many bad experiences in such a short time that it's made an impression.
I want to give the RP thing a decent chance, but I find I'm having no fun. I found myself hiding from people and avoiding Rp because I'm tired of being the victim.
You can either have meaningless RP "hi, have you seen anyone, no? Want to trade for supplies? Nice weather we've been having." Or get screwed over by bandits who start out pretending to be nice folks. They are clearly taking joy in our suffering.
Since I refuse to go bandit, I'm finding that I'm just going to keep getting screwed over again and again. No thanks.
The one time I was part of a pretty legit, very cool RP, bandits rolled in right as we were getting into the thick of it and it was once AGAIN someone shoving a gun in my face and that opportunity to RP anything but a terrified victim was gone.
I want to set up a place and farm. Actually try to DO something useful. But I just KNOW that the people that find my location will come in and shove a gun in my face and take all my stuff/torture me/beat me.
Not my idea of an entertaining evening.
Wish I had found more of the tiny percentage of good folks out there. For the two of you who have done nice RP with me, thank you. I don't need all sunshine and rainbows, I'd just rather the occasional RP that is us vs the world, or trying to survive or solve a problem.
I'll stop ranting. If you're a bandit, you've got a good thing going here. Have fun. For everyone else, good luck. I'm out for a bit. I may come back when I am feeling like getting trounced again.
