Hiding/Sneaking Without RP

Postby krelm » Sun Aug 03, 2014 12:23 am

When did it become okay to hide and sneak in public, with PCs present, clearly just trying to twink the skills up, without RPing it in the least?

There was never a time when this was okay.

I'd report them myself but, honestly, I don't care enough. If they were hiding, sneaking, and using that to try to kill other pcs then I might be worried about it.

They likely are, those 'other pcs' just don't happen to be in the same sphere. :roll:

I'd like to know if there was no RP in the first place? Are we checking their feel, thinks, and hmotes?

Yes I'm playing the devil's advocate here.
No, I don't think doing something without RP is cool.

These are creatures that live in a hostile environment, would make sense for them to be stealthy even behind their own gates if they were avoiding conflict or were watching and listening for any chatter that could get back to the right orc and get them rewarded.

Let's just ease off the rubberstamp here a bit?



Eru you came off as a bit snarky if not hostile. What was the point of your post again?

If it was once every like, week that I saw it, I wouldn't bring it up.

As it stands, there are about 3/4 PCs that use sneak instead of movement commands, no matter where they are. PCs in the room? Sneak with no RP. NPCs? Sneak with no RP. Every. Single. Time. No RP, just command spamming.

How do I know it's without thinks/feels/hmotes? Because it always follows another command.

put knife bin
nod ema
sneak up

With no lag in between. If there were hmotes, they would fail the roll at least once in the 200 times I've seen it happen. They haven't. I'm beyond positive that it's just people trying to twink up their sneak skill.

Sounds like a chance to encourage proper roleplay!

They not interested in interaction and prefer solo RP... well meh. Common courtesy to at least throw -one- emote.

Like I said, playing Devil's advocate earlier, I've noticed it too and it's annoying, I agree.

The game is not roleplay encouraged, it's roleplay enforced. Give them permanent or long lasting no-gains, prevent others from doing it.

True, you could smash their fingers with a hammer. Or. And just hear me out to this. Act like not everyone has an RPI background?

The majority do, the majority known what is expected of them, they just do not care beyond their own needs and wants, we give them to much leniency. Stamp it out before it becomes endemic. Foster a culture of inclusive roleplay.

And hear me out on this too, wait for it, yeah it's definitely coming, almost got it, less patronizing and condescending posts please?

The problem is the people who know they shouldn't do it do it anyway, like Hawkwind said, and then newbies follow their example because they think it's okay.

It isn't okay. It will never be okay.

The point has been made folks. Now, let's be constructive for the new people while I wait for a list from folks.

Hmm didn't mean it to be, so apologies for that? Anyways the point of my point of my post was that not partaking in player killing does not give the player free reign to hide/sneak everywhere. That's nothing against Saellyn or his opinions, I just don't believe that's a good reason to not report someone.

On the other side of the coin, the players may be pretty fresh to the game. Maybe pulling them aside to coach them towards a better way might work before tossing Icarus a list.

So just to be clear, what is actually expected when you are in such a situation? I usually RP attempting to blend in to the crowd or something, or passing behind a group that is gathered within the square or something like that before using the sneak or hide command.

Emotes. Sounds like you got it :P

I usually roleplay becoming suspicious of people constantly sneaking around and encourage others to do so.

Multiple times I've had folks sneak out while I'm having a conversation with them or hide in the assembly hall while also having a chat. At least throw me a token emote if you're going to do this so I don't waste my effort.

This is an excellent way to train your hiding/sneaking in a non-lethal environment, which is probably why it's happening. It's especially good if they throw out that token emote once they're already hidden, because then it will test the skill. :roll:

The only time when I sneak away from a conversation is when I need to go IRL. >.>

People spamming hiding and sneaking in very public areas tempts me to start flagging things nohide, just saying. ;)

Speaking of hiding and sneaking. I have learned hide and when you're in a group you autosneak while hiding (which would seem to cause that skill to have to be worked), so why has sneak not opened yet? Hide's all the way to familiar and I still technically can't skulk. Not precisely related to the thread and no I'm not one of the hiders in the warren, but it's annoying.

Just the way that learning skills through doing them works. You haven't reached the point where your sneak has gotten to an opening level. It will likely come along as well in time.
