That's How We Role Player

Posted Wed, Jan 16, 2008 by RadarX

The world of roleplaying is a frequently overlooked and unusual style of play that has existed since the beginning of MMO games. Despite being in a fast paced science fiction based game like Tabula Rasa, a thriving community embraces and practices this art even holding public events. We had the opportunity to chat with Ainilome who runs the Tabula Rasa Roleplayers website and stands as a voice in the community. Join us and learn more about roleplaying in Tabula Rasa.

If the influence of this community hasn't been made obvious, take for example the roleplaying events of the past few months supported directly by the development team. While commonplace 5 years ago, actual involvement by the people responsible for game design is almost unheard of today. Ainilome speaks very fondly of the NCsoft group when asked about the support they receive. "From the begining the community team support for events has been phenomenal. FireLotus has been our go to girl for far too many lore and storyline questions I'm sure, Miss Morrison herself has stopped by and RPed on our forums and in our shoutbox before. When it comes to events we have several weekly or biweekly, like tavern nights."

Keep rolling over to this link and go check out the rest of the interview. What do you think of roleplaying? Stop by our forums and let us know.
