Ignore the title because I didn’t really know how else to word this without typing a paragraph. This was on my mind last night, so I wanted to see if anyone else had similar thoughts.
We’re all familiar that RP is dynamic and actions have consequences, but depending on the player, others sometimes aren’t comfortable with CRP or any sort of hard drama RP be it due to anxiety, a condition or any other barrier that they’re unfortunate enough to have (keep in mind this is NOT a post targeting this demographic).
Where do you draw the line on when or where they can tap out of RP, though? To put this into perspective, say that Player A can’t participate in a heated argument or fight because it’s troubling them OOCly. Player A is pardoned to leave but then runs to get reinforcements or rally their buddies to come fight the opponent(s) that they originally ran from. This can result in some situations and conflicts ending in unfair solution; I know that there are several people that play on the server who’ve had to deal with this.
That being said, do you think that if a player tabs out of any sort of violent or heated RP because of an OOC factor, they should be allowed to bird allies or get reinforcements to influence it in their favor?
