I can understand the difference between IC and OOC so I am never offended by an IC person. When I come across somebody that's speaking in /say or /shout I want them to be IC, and if yours happens to be that of an average Dark Elf then be a racist. What happens IC stays IC, just leave it at that.
Just out of curiousity, in your example about people not wanting to roleplay evil .... if you came up to me and said "let's backstab your friend", you better have a good reason for it. The let's do stuff just to be evil doesn't quite make sense to me. Now if you say let's backstab your friend cause I just saw him tuck away 5 plat .... hmmmm.
Also you can be evil without being a full on jerk. Maybe take a more subtle approach? Remember too, as a Teir Dal you might want to take on the idea of using other races to your advantage. Yes you might be superior ... but don't kings need subjects and don't gods need worshippers?
I know this post is somewhat dated but...Personally, I think the idea between the couples would have offered a great RP oppurtunity for everyone involved. No one said the couldn't get back together, and they could even RP their little tift while in groups, one not talking to the other, etc. It wasn't too mean, it was innovative. I hope the evil RP is working better for you. I would re-emphasize, what Tabathe wrote if people are still having problems with your character, but you should be free to RP in whatever fashion you choose, and as long as you are not out of character and belittling people, or being vulgar, I see no reason for them to take offense. Unfortunatley some people will from time to time, even though that is not your intention. I give you props for sticking to your character though, it's so long I can't remember the last time I grouped with someone outside The Callers who was even attempting to RP with their character. I personally play a Kerra who despises the human race, good or bad, has an Ogre who is his best friend, and despite his allegiance to Freeport, is very friendly with High Elves. I too have found it very hard to RP this hostility towards a human character without some form of insult being taken. Well I don't see any clear cut solution to the problem we both relatively share, but I wish you all the best in your future RPing, and hope more people become open to the differentiation between in and out of character for both our character sake -Melkorayth
