A Study Of Plots
« Thread started on: Sep 21st, 2017, 8:58pm »
I cannot seem to shake this from my mind, no matter how hard I try. Put aside the right or wrong of Roleplaying in certain places and what remains is the creativity of a scene, and weather or not it is what a specific character might do. The following "essay" is meant to show the progression of a plot so to say. Someone said that my actions, even if wrong from a rule standpoint, was also wrong from a online character standpoint. Another person has said that when here online they are their RealTime self, but that's impossible as Gor is a fictitious world.
Let me be clear, though I have been aggressive in the past...even though I don't believe I was the "aggressor"...I am trying not to be emotional and aggressive here, but instead I'm trying to be informative and "educational".
First...I understand the nature of immersing ones self in a fictitious world, even to the point of "feeling" like its real. So I want to assure everyone that I'm not insulting them for feeling that way. As Sir Arthur Conan Doyle once said in "A Study In Scarlet" (Sherlock Holmes): "...where there is no imagination there is no horror", likewise there can be no joy or adventure.
Though I'd like to imagine my powers with words are greater than William Shakespeare, I acknowledge that's probably not the case, however I do believe that I at least have a technical understanding of stories, plots and characters. As...again...Sir Arthur Conan Doyle says in the story "The Greek Interpretor": "I cannot agree with those who rank modesty among the virtues. ...to under-estimate oneself is as much a departure from truth as to exaggerate one's own powers." So I'm going to explain the progression of my Gorean character...even though I doubt anyone actually cares.
(Continued later...maybe not until tomorrow...)
