# 1 RP dying?
04-09-2010, 08:39 AM
Is it me or is the RP community on STO dying of cribdeath. I mean it only been a couple of months and Quarks is like a ghost town. I hardly see people at Drozana. Like were the heck is the RP at?

Funny enough, I started coming here in 08 because I was in an RP and I really couldn't wait to try this with the RP. But that's died and I haven't even really thought about RP'ing in game.

I don't know the answer for you, but I wish you the best.

What?! I had plans to get into the RP element more once my enjoyment of missions and character building had subsided. Hopefully its just a phase. If not maybe we'll be able to get a group together who want to do it.

I've done my best. I plan to keep trying. The Move Ten Forward thread and my Risa social functions are my attempt at keeping RP alive.

But, with or without, the game will always be fun as long as you annoying 10-4 f*ckers are around.

I gave up trying to RP in game during CB, too much instancing.

No, no, the instancing is true to the source material! Don't you remember when Picard had to get clearance from a blue person to warp to the Neutral Zone? And when Picard's shuttle couldn't find the Enterprise that one time, then they just realized they were in instance #17, the Enterprise was in instance #34!

I stopped rping because everyone that I rp'd with disappeared into the vapor. I do know there are some RP channels in game that I do use. Most are dead. The one that does have some activity is 98% OOC so I just ignore it.

RP is pretty thin, you have to search for it in STO. As opposed to other games that have RP servers and flags. Without these things there is no way to tell the person walking fast you is a role player.

The channel Roleplayers isn't dead, though activity went a bit down lately. Its still a good place to find people to play with on missions or just in chat. I'm no big fan of the 'standing around in Quark's and pretending we can really do something' roleplay, but you can find other activities there, too.
