Quote from: MertenIt's funny that you say call it "an exterme form of the RP phenomenon", though, since personally I don't think I even could do live-roleplaying in any other way - or, in a sense, even tabletop roleplaying. Must be a cultural and learned thing.
Quote from: contracycleHmm, possibly... Mary Kuhner seemed to do it a lot, something like 75% of play IIRC. I have done it on "the odd occassion". If you are really doing it All The Time, then I would think that it is a learned behaviour of some kind. Which is interesting.
QuoteBut I disagree very strongly that you can't do Live RP any other way; you most certainly can do it with routine "suspension of disbelief" and identification with the character. That is NOT the trance-like state I mean.
Quote from: Andrew MartinThat's one of the reasons why I forbid players to roleplay evil characters. A former friend of mine regularly roleplayed evil characters and I think that experience changed or warped his personality. He's now no longer a friend. One is what what one thinks.
