Ya know, if I start bashing you out of character then the out of character thread might be a good idea.
I've not posted evaluating every in character post you've made for the simple reason that I assumed we were posting in character in the in character thread.
I never declared it a vote or even called for it. And it isn't even tyranny? Did I ever knock you out and keep you with us? No. Did I ever out of character say you weren't allowed to leave? No. Amber (that's a character) simply disliked the idea that one person could just go running off and others followed.
REGARDLESS of his intentions, IN CHARACTER, my CHARACTER (Amber) feels that by running off you force the party into either leaving you alone to fight something dangerous or chasing after and doing anything you want. You can't really demand tyranny. Regardless of your intentions, that is what it does?
Out of character do I give a ****? No, your character wants to do that. It's role play we all play our roles. I might disagree with it and dislike it, but I have never said you were not allowed to run off and I never said you had to stick with the party.
Surprise, surprise if one character runs off to danger and the party splits 2 and 2 because of it that's probably going to be a topic of conversation. If that offends you, I'm sorry, but I have never bashed you out of character or even demanded you obey the party. And regardless of your intentions and even if you explained it out of character, Amber's not going to know that and since I'm roleplaying a character (same as you) I'm going to go by what SHE knows.
So telling me out of character that "Amber is forcing untrue things" and "she is bad mouthing him" isn't going to do a damn thing, because that's the difference between IC and OOC.
IC all Amber knows is the party discussed opinions, decided to do one thing, and another member ran off from the group and caused a split and forced the party to decide to run off and do anything he wanted or to split up and endanger the group. Regardless of intentions, methods, etc. That's Amber (the character's) knowledge.
If I ever start bashing you and insulting your choices and demand you do certain things out of character, then this becomes an issue, but right now I really don't see the need for making a big deal out of this.
