Uberstein Posted May 20, 2010 Report Share Posted May 20, 2010 We've had an argument going on in CNRP for quite awhile, how much does RP actual count? Is it just a numbers game? Or does RP actually count for something? If somebody can develop, say, a massive battleship with railguns and a shield-system of tiny guns to shoot down enemy missiles without any IC development, but just because they have the tech level and the ingame battleship, what's the point of RPing anything at all? Should wars be decided by whichever side has the highest NS and then simply dish out terms? Or should tactics, strategy, and taking the time to write something out actually effect the battles? Do characters matter, or is this text-based RISK? Those are the general questions I want to ask, mainly just to see the community's standing. This isn't meant to be pointing fingers, I simply want to see, where do we disagree specifically? I didn't include a poll because I want people to not just say "yes" or "no", but actually explain their standing. ------------- Personally I believe that RP should be a fairly major part of CNRP, that the stats are the bare clay and that RP is turning that clay into something that works. Just having the clay isn't going to get you very far. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
