Introduce Your Characters (Part 13)

Introduce us to your characters - think first day of school, speed dating type intros. Who knows, maybe your character could find a friend here. :handshake:

PLEASE ABIDE BY THE CODE OF CONDUCT!!! BE CAREFUL OF GOD MODDING!

WHAT IS GODMODDING?

Godmodding is taking control of another player’s character during roleplay. It’s frowned upon and with good reason: you only control your character and no one else’s. The best way to explain it is by example. Let’s say that I’m playing as Pikachu and my friend is playing as Charmander.

This is my friend’s post:
Charmander inhaled deeply, summoning as much power as he could handle. Then his wild gaze focused on his attacker and his jaws opened. Bright orange flames burst forth as both a warning and defense.

And this is mine:
Pikachu jumped out of the way of Charmander’s attack and dashed behind him. “Pikaaa!” he cried; a flash of lightning shot towards Charmander’s back and knocked him forward, twitching and dazed. He couldn’t get up.

How do I know whether or not Charmander could get up, or whether he fell at all? It’s not my responsibility to control Charmander - I only have control of Pikachu’s actions. A better response would have been this:

Pikachu jumped out of the way of Charmander’s attack and dashed behind him. “Pikaaa!” he cried; a flash of lightning shot towards Charmander’s back, making a loud CRACKing sound.

This makes it so that my friend can respond to my attack - whether or not they choose to get hit is completely up to them. It’s usually fair to allow your character to dodge two of every three hits when doing combat roleplay. That makes it fair and a little more realistic. Keep in mind that godmodding doesn’t apply only to combat: it applies to every day interactions as well. Be cautious when typing posts. Make sure to keep it fun and fair.

Anansi moves to pull him over to whisper. “Not in front of the guests, please,” in his ear.

“Hi, Alec.” Yessei smiles at the man.

Magnus smiles. “I’ve never actually hugged you, have I?”

“You seriously could’ve warned me.” Alec mutters, diverting his eyes from it.

Alec smiles warmly at Yessei. “Yessei! It’s been awhile. Who’s this?” He glances at Heather. @Tanya3231
