Firstly, I respect the fact you spoke up and came into the report like that, Blue. That's big of you, and very mature.
As for me being accused of having bad RP, I typed a lot of text out for any one of you to respond to in character - you are also welcome to text RP if you so wish (in case you're unaware). And I would hope not too many sarcastic "*scratches booty*" replies, for the record. But if that is the way someone chooses to roleplay, I'm not going to be able to change that overnight.
My character talks a tiny bit, but mostly only to my group, hence why I never spoke to any of you. If you have a problem with that kind of RP, then that is your own problem, not mine. I feel that type of character is perfectly allowed, and I've seen it before on the server and it's usually very entertaining to watch someone mime something out or figure out other ways of communicating with others. I also gave plenty of opportunities for anyone to ask and interact with me, and if so prompted my character will also write in her notepad which I indicated in my RP posts that she had, since it's not an actual in-game item.
The purpose of her ASL signing is so that John (her husband) can translate for her. It's what makes the most sense, because it's faster than pulling out her notebook and scribbling notes for people who obviously wouldn't care to read what she tried to say to them. But admittedly sometimes he misses it or forgets that others can't understand it like he can. Characters aren't perfect, which is what makes them believable. It's also the way she's communicated throughout her life since the injury that left her larynx damaged. I suppose in the future I could RP her making commonly known hand signs, like the "OK" hand, etc. I admit, I could improve on that somewhat. I am not perfect. I admittedly get nervous when meeting aggressive people such as yourselves and revert back to the things I do with just my group around. I do apologize for that, but on the other side of the same coin, you didn't have to get upset by it OOCly. You could have pursued it further in-character than simply stating you can't understand it, and questioned what I was saying with the hand gestures to one of the others in my small group - or have asked me to write it or even tried forcing me to speak. RP is about creativity and playing a character you enjoy, and sometimes are not accustomed to, after all.
If anyone had bothered to notice that tidbit about her having the notebook in her vest, I'd happily have provided you with text that was written on the pages already that was still there, since it's somewhat like a diary as well as a communication device for the character. But it seemed you all were only interested in what gear you could take from us, instead of actual interactions with our characters. You say the purpose was to prove I wasn't Russian, but you never technically proved that either, so was that actually the purpose? To me it felt like the only reason for the whole thing was to get our gear and an extra pistol to stuff into your backpacks. Call me crazy, but I think the 'hunting Russians' thing was only an excuse, although it was really interesting to start with, until it only devolved into gear RP. Please correct me if I'm wrong, since I can only see what happened from our side of things.
The moment where I offered to provide an ID card to prove that I wasn't Russian, to bring something slightly different into the RP, it got immediately shut down and came close to being power-gamed that it was a fake ID card, when I hadn't even had the chance to finish writing about pulling it out and even showing it to any of you (and that was the guy with the bush on his head, if I'm remembering correctly). Even if you wanted to play that you thought it was fake, you could have at least drawn the RP out a little by letting me actually text RP taking it out and showing it to you guys. I don't feel like yours are the types of characters that would know the difference between a real Canadian ID, or a fake one. Even John didn't know the difference. You could have used that as an opening and done some type of hostage situation instead of just simply robbing for gear, for example.
As for the accusation of our RP being sub-par, we weren't even allowed to speak at all. Someone had literally told us to shut up and not talk or we will be shot, so if you call that bad RP then you are mistaking the fact that we value our characters' lives, for bad RP. And since my character chooses not to speak because it causes her discomfort and sometimes pain, doesn't make my RP bad, in my opinion. There is something that exists that is called Selective Mutism, which is the best way to describe what my character is afflicted with. If every character on the server was cut and paste, it wouldn't be as exciting as it can be. It's the same in real life, everyone is different because if we were all the same, life would be incredibly dull and boring.
And finally, regarding the OOC on voice, I can understand making mistakes like that here and there, but it happened a couple times if I recall correctly. Someone else had yelled at his mom in the background or something too, and seemed like he opened his mic to do so for whatever reason. I admit this could be me mishearing it since it was being screamed into the microphone, along with everyone talking at once and it being very hard at the time to even discern the orders we were given. It made things distracting and it was difficult to take the scene seriously.
To summarize, I'm sorry this turned into such a long wall of text - I tried breaking it into paragraphs to make it easier to read, but I hope it helps you guys to see it from our point of view and understand why it was not a satisfying experience. We think it seemed very much like you all were simply gear RPing and not looking to get any sort of interesting roleplay experience out of the situation. I took a lot of time and put thought into this reply, so I hope you'll do the same with yours so we can come to an understanding and all improve from what we've discussed here. Thanks for reading.
