Here’s a thing I’ve been meaning to write up about ~roleplaying~

I’ve seen the question of “why are we expected to follow lore?” come up a couple times so here’s the short version of the answer:

You’re sharing a storytelling medium with many many other people. This medium is an MMO, so, the devs create the story within which we are telling our own stories. To successfully merge the writing of thousands of people without extensive OOC communication, RPers follow the basic guidelines of the universe.

I don’t actually want to get into “but when and how is it acceptable for me to break lore” today so yeah that’s it bye.
