Curious how they RP their ship exploding and 400 crew dying?

They must, I assume, delete and re-roll their toon?

Iconians. Or crazy temporal mish-mash wibbly-wobbly alternate universes.

(I have no idea)

I heard about a good place to RP from some friends in my fleet. I've never been able to find a good place to RP here, until they told me. It opens up for some fun stories, especially if you made one with your character's backgrounds.

It is odd to RP the horrid demise of your crew

When the General Manager decided to ignore the trolls, the role-playing craze on Drozana was quickly brought to an end. As a result of activist players discriminating against the practice, (harassing role-players with various snowballs, extinguishers, and standing in protest), the role-players on Drozana had no choice but to go into hiding.

I can only guess at how many reports were ignored.

*shrugs*

I love the video attached to the article.

Regardless about what type of role-playing you are involved with, I am in full support of everyone within the community.

We just need more cross-faction social zones.

Great blog and a nice introduction to the concept of roleplay on the Holodeck shard.

When the game blows up my starship, I just assumed it was disabled and ignored by my adversary long enough for my heroic crew to restore systems. Or maybe we were towed from the battlefield? Maybe no one died at all. Or maybe a Bridge officer died when the player chose to replace them with a better quality mission reward? What's nice about roleplay is that the possibilities are endless.

Spamming public game chat is not a hobby. Public roleplay is ridiculous, and really quite rude.

Fleet is totally different. Use your own channel as you see fit, I say. More power to them, and enjoy yourselves.

So...it's okay to have completely idiotic arguments about how your gorn line is better than the other guy's breen line, but god forbid somebody tries to RP in public.

Hypocrisy much?
