Recent events have conspired to convince me I really ought to rant more, so here goes. Today's microdrama is entitled "I Hate Godmoding."

SERIOUSLY, people. There are times when my character's reaction is so flaming obvious that one would have to be dead to miss it, but that's no excuse for putting words in my mouth--especially if one doesn't know me that well. In the event that one has been in a total of two role-plays that include my character, there's no way in hell one can predict his reactions accurately. This is particularly heinous when the godmoding player says "What's a little powerplay among friends?" to justify it.

Furthermore, just because people are goofing off and being silly OOC does not mean that we do not have serious expectations and aims. It is not fun anymore if these aims are arbitrarily thwarted by someone who thinks they know how the story goes. In fact, this behavior defeats the point of role-playing at all. If one wants to micromanage the events and outcomes, one can write one's own story. Otherwise, shut up and let the other players have their say.

Hear hear. Godmodders are no fun to anyone but themselves. I've dealt with them myself, and never relished the experience.
