It had to be asked...

Post by Mr. Bubbles on Wed Feb 19, 2014 4:18 pm

Well, I might as well ask it...

How does everyone feel about ERP? I know it's generally banned in servers, but I want to know how you all feel about it as individuals. I'll offer my personal opinion after some response is had.

I will truthfully say I've ERP'd before, and I got *ahem* 'Excited' but to tell you the truth, ERP is not banned nor is it bad, it's a way to RP love, I fully understand it, so yeah...

In my own personal opinion, I think ERP is wonderful, but in the RIGHT CONTEXT! As an example of the WRONG context, I used to do Black Mesa RP, and I remember my first time on the server, there was a scientist clearly played by a some horny thirteen year old kid, in a ganbang with two other security guards. Just right out in the open, like some awful porn scene. It actually really pissed me off at the time. However, sex is a part of life, and it really is an expression of love. To see two characters who have developed themselves and their relationship with one another engaging in sexual acts, because they love eachother, is a beautiful thing. Smut for the sake of smut of just kinda icky in serious roleplay though.

IMO erp can be awkward if everybody hears it, but I tend to refrain from the narrating porn stuff and only implement it when realistically needed. I do like romanceRP because it is just one of those good needed elements. We do have a /sme command and even a /wme which does /me's at talking and whispering range. ERP is not banned here, feel free to do it when you want. As long as it's not every 3 seconds.

ERP isn't banned, it just isn't looked very highly upon. If you have an ounce of creativity, you should have some idea as to how to evoke love or romance to another without just going to town and /me'ing it away for everyone to hear.

That's actually pretty cool, I've never seen the different range /me commands. Anyway, my tip for ERP, take it to steam. More often than not, some retard admin will go posting your logs in ooc.

ERP is an okay form of RP by my standards, but people often do it a bit too much. And also, whenever there's ERP, admins crowd around in observer like it's a public porn viewing.

Heh, I completely agree. Sometimes, the power of the logs just prove a bit too tempting :3 And honestly, there is a big difference between ERPing for horniness, and ERPing because it's part of character development.

I am totally fine with ERP. If I walk by it and see some /me's I'm not gonna post the logs to OOC... But I will probably tell Slash and he will probably put them in OOC... Totally not my fault. But if I ever get into a situation like that I generally find it less awkward to just type /it they have sex.

Overall, the server has nothing against ERP... But I am just assuming and I think most would agree that rape RP is a very sensitive thing. With rape RP; both people have to agree to it, if not, then just /it rape happens. And even if you both agree; it's much more pleasant for others on the server if you either take it to Steam or /pm.

Final verdict in my opinion:
ERP: Totally fine if both players agree.
RapeRP: Extremely sensitive topic. Both players must agree and it should probably be taken to Steam.

And me (on other servers). But in my opinion ERP is a great way to express a diffrent version of RP and yeah its not for all and maybe you should take to a steam chat SO RANDOM CPS ARNT LIKE "I HEARD YOUR BELT BUCKLE" WHEN YOU DON'T HAVE A BELT. You know who you are.

Honestly, I can understand if someone you love or care about has been raped, and it offends you. But for anyone else, I don't see what the big issue is. Sexual crime happens in the real world, even moreso in a world like HL2.

Or just just /sme and /wme, the new commands we have that allow you to /me at whisper and talk ranges.

Just ask before anything. You don't know what that player went through IRL. Some stuff could be trigger words and bring back horrible horrible memories. If the player refuses and you still go through with it, there wi be punishments because I know what it's like to have things brought up that were extremely painful. And I want everyone to have a great time to escape the real world.

Exactly. That's why RP is a consensual activity on both sides.

I just can't get passed the fact that its a dude on the other side of the screen. I've always been subtle when it came to actually being sexual, so the first time I had to ERP I was really ew'd out.

But I did it. I made it through my first ERP years ago. And that was grounds to never have to do it again.

Unless its a real girl. Then maybe, if our characters fall in lerv.

EDIT: For the record, I am not against ERP. I just feel uncomfortable when performing it.

And I can understand that Diablo. It really is a matter of being able to stomach it more than anything else. But let me tell you something. Some of the worst ERP (what I mean is least descriptive, poorly written, and most awkward) was with females.

I've encountered non RP text that is sexual with women.

Not bragging, but if they actually want to do that then they will be descriptive. Girls work differently than guys while RPing as well. At least, to my knowledge.

True. The thing is, I think guys know what guys want better than girls do, so as a general whole, the best ERP is often found when roleplaying with another guy.

Yeah, but when you think about it, that can become cause to be REALLY uncomfortable, especially if the level of detail gets to where you can tell whoever's on the other side is putting way too much thought into it.
