Order of the Sword & Rose
A unique Demon of its kind, therare Mobius demon causes you to feel that the only importance isyourself. Unlike the Diva-demon, it’s not based on how others arereacting and interacting with you. Infact, for the type of RPing you’redoing - ‘interaction’ doesn’t apply at all. Everything you do under theMobius Demon is one sided. You don’t pay attention to what othercharacters are doing, saying, or if they’re even reading what you’veposted. You’re so absorbed in your own actions, you probably wouldn’tnotice if the person you’re chatting with had already logged off.

The Cure for Mobius
SlooooooowDoooooown. No one is going to bother playing with you once they realizeyou’d rather play with yourself. Who wants to be at the receiving endof a one-way conversation? Would you? Here’s an exercise to break thehabit. Try making statements that require a reaction from someone.
Instead of *buys the man at the bar a drink* try saying *orders a drink, not for himself apparently, as he sets the glass down in front of the man at the bar.* You could also have the character be direct and ask a question “How about a drink sir?” The important part of this exercise is to waitfor the reaction of the other player. Be patient - not everyone is afast typist. If you just can’t wait, you may want to give up on thiskind of roleplaying, because it sounds like you’re interested in beingalone.
ManyMobius victims are very talented and descriptive writers. Don’t losethat, just allow the input of others to enrich your work.
This is the result of my 10 years of solo rping. ((DDO is my first outlet))
At first I was the Lurker, and though I didn't have fun while I was one I learned the ups and downs of rp through observation, so I think I have a pretty good control on my demon.
Though I know I don't mode, ((I HATE it when people mode)) I'm not so sure about the others...>_< If I start doing anything that is annoying let me know ok? I won't be offended or anything, and I can wrestle my demon back into submission.
