1) I notice someone who is a notorious outlaw for my guild. I keep spying and summon reinforcements. We drop on him/her cause RP right? 10 hits and we're dead. Acting like our characters, even being considerate instead of charging in or something proved very rewarding
2) Ranger/Dwarf meets Orc/MM in a boat -> Insta fight, RIGHT? But... no you just tap your feet cause yey RP, nobody wants the drama or mortal levels are too different and who cares. Maybe MM drops a darkness or make the air chilly while the ranger "hides" (they do see you mate...). Such incredible RP moments overall.
3) I'm a (good) hobbit and an evil character I meet passes me an elven head. I'm shocked unsure how to react for a moment, then I'm passed a hobbit one. "This is correct!", he/she said. Realistically, I should flee (such an RP experience with that ending!). On the other hand, I could probably charge him/her while crying, I guess. 2nd choice gets me dead cause I'm small and again RPing is very cool.
There is no RP. Sparkle, every boat from it and each dock arrival would be a fighting pit if we were acting like our characters. At the very least you would be hearing insults and threats everywhere cause we're all enemies with they other half of the population rp wise. If nobody but Carlsan was around to stop you, would you casually walk past a person who killed 2 of your friends the previous week? Or even someone who you know has been farming NPCs of your race.
