Heh.

OOC: Taiaka and Hummingbird have started flirting. Playing a female character can sometimes be intriguing. I once had a young and obviously straight guy playing a male warrior who was romantically interested in Hummingbird freak out a little when he discovered a man was controlling the character. I am straight and while I'm not at all homophobic I confess it does seem odd to me to have straight male players hit on my character.

I have some empathy for those who are attracted to Hummingbird. The two drawings I have used in her profile have been Frank Cho illustrations, notorious for their curves, and indeed her sexy appearance has saved her from death more than once at the hands of players who can't bring themselves to kill a hot chick. The character - an agent of order, a team player, a lawmaker, helpful, good to her word, and female and beautiful - was always intended to be the antithesis of my pirate - chaotic, a loner, cruel, a lawbreaker, untrustworthy, male, scarred and ugly.

In any event, to get to my point, it may surprise some of you to know that Taiaka, the broad, handsome
and slightly thuggish bodyguard of Blue Hummingbird, is apparently played by someone who is funny, attractive and female. I do not know much about her save that she is blonde and lives in Bermuda. My old RPG cohort all posted photos of ourselves on my long-abandoned message board. I'm not sure that it is politically correct, and it's certainly a little confused, but it's oddly acceptable to me for my female character to flirt with a male character played by a girl.

I'm raising this to preempt the homophobic crowd who might challenge my character's romantic interaction with Taiaka. I've had gay taunts before from playing this female character from people who can't separate role-play from real life, and which were unpleasant and unnecessary. The gay bashers can chill out.

Dave,

Awesome post.

No one should be harassed for role playing the opposite sex. And no one should be harassed for their sexuality IC or OOC.

I have always thought it was weird how people react to sexy pictures that some use for their characters. It's just a picture for god's sake but they do work and work well.  I was a bit surprised you would have to make a post about 'characters' flirting with yours, FAD. I have seen a couple of guys playing women get hit on IC and didn't think nothing of it.  Wink Whether you are male or female and you put a picture of a big boob female in your profile ...you will have guys drooling over you.

Just ask Neil Tathers.

Incidently; my character is fleshy meatbag, but I am rogue AI. Looking for similar.

Ha-ha! The joke's on you, Blue Bird. I've emptied the treasury and done a runner! The royal carriage is up on bricks, so you won't be able to follow me. Give my regards to Blackbeard and the Gorilla.

Can I be Queen of Raktam? My last sign up as queen of Delpuk was rejected Sad

YEAH SCOUTS!

Trawling. Scouts and explorers alone can find extra stuff in the water.
I think trawling is appropriate because the classes feel like being in a pool of sadness.

I am actually from Raktam. Hey, weren't you from Dalpok? Perhaps we can switch and be queens of each other's village.
