Right, due to... someone who will remain nameless...'s actions, Rumo has now quit RP. Deciding whether or not to quit RP on Thesus, too, simply because I have lost my appetite for RP at the moment, due to prolonged meta-gaming and closed-circle RPing.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metagaming_(role-playing_games)

Examples of metagaming include:

* Adjusting a character's actions if the player has some foreknowledge of the long-term intentions of the gamemaster.
* Using certain types of attack or defense based on the strengths and weaknesses of a monster/other characters the character knows nothing of, for example a weakness to fire-based magic.
* Acting on technical and/or scientific knowledge that the character is not or could not be aware of (such as creating gunpowder in a Dark Ages or Middle Ages setting).
* Adjusting a character's behavior towards other player characters based on real-life relationships with other players.
* Using knowledge of the game's mechanics to gain an advantage in the game by having the character do something that makes no sense given the character's personality and psychology.
* Assuming that something that appears to be wrong or unlikely in the game world is a mistake of the gamemaster rather than something that could be investigated.
* Assuming that if an item (often a chest, desk or book-case) is mentioned by the gamemaster during the initial description of an area, it must have some relevance to the storyline, and immediately searching or examining it (while ignoring other furnishings or objects that are most likely there as well).
* Deciding on a character's course of action based on how the game's mechanics will affect the outcome without more significant regard placed on how the character would actually behave.
* Any action that is based upon the knowledge that one is playing a game.
* Another form of metagaming occurs as a form of powergaming during character creation, when a player takes flaws or liabilities that they know the gamemaster is unlikely to fully exploit, thereby acquiring extra creation options without paying a corresponding penalty.
* In split-screen games, using another player's viewpoint to determine information that one's own character doesn't have, such as map layout and the locations of other characters.


So... Seeya on Rumo, possible Seeya on Thesus.

It saddens me to hear of such, man. No one likes ‘prolonged meta-gaming and closed-circle RPing’ – I trust this isn’t the only action that resulted in your departure.

Never good to see a RPer leave.

Well, as I said, it was due to someone's (who I won't name) actions that pushed me towards the decision.
