Stop with the power playing!

Post by Guest on Sun Oct 21, 2012 1:38 pm

I'm getting sick and tired of it, please if it's aloud on your topic put a note on the first post saying that the other players has permission. If Themagus approves I shall be giving out warnings to people I see with power play in their topic.

What is power play?

It's when you make another persons character do what YOU choose it to, which is unfair to the other player. For example-
Player 1-
Suzie smiled trying to cheer up Jack as he cried.

Player 2-
Jack cried and cried. Soon Suzie got tired of it and slapped him.

Ok do you see it? Everything is fine till Player 2 makes Suzie slap Jack without permission from Player 1.

Power playing is also when you make your character hit another character without missing, the other player should be allowed to doge unless you have permission. Also you can't doge every move, it unfair.
Example 1-
Player one- Suzie sighed looking at Jack as he rummaged threw junk looking for his lost toy.

Player two- Jack suddenly grew angry and punched Suzie making her bleed.

Ok Player two didn't give player one's character a choice of weather or not the attack hit. You should always give the other player a choice of getting hit or not.

Example 2-
Player one-
Suzie missed all of Jacks clumsy attacks in the fight. Player two-
Jack kept trying to punch her.

Ok Suzie is dogging all Jack's attacks which is unfair, Suzie should be able to doge them all because in a really fight both people get a little scuffed up.

Most topics, yes that would be powerplay. But some topics, based upon the plot(forcer topics usually fall here), it is part of the plot to force a character to do something. I've seen some topics that are powerplay, but is part of the plot or even the scene for powerplay the other character. But number two is just really godmodding(unless the rp itself has an invincible/god character), which is a lot more noticeable the powerplay, but both are quite annoying in fights and disagreements. Never seen powerplaying or godmodding on this site for a long time, so it's probably apart of the situation or plot that there doing that.
