Hello there community,

While we are still small, live-chat contact is very minimal, that is why I am hoping to make a time for us to get together on the chat and have a little bit of a banter.




The time will be 18:00 GMT -0, I am not sure how this works for you, please post below if you wish to change this time.

Intrigued by this game and the concept of RP within its setting.

Post  McCartan on Tue Apr 09, 2013 6:15 am

Hey, I, like what I assume is most of the people on this forum are intrigued by the notion of RP within Defiance. I'm yet to buy the game itself, but I'm looking forward to the premiere of the series. As a veteran RPer, I figured I'd check out what was on offer before I brought the game, after finding this forum and seeing some very promising posts from a few members I'm interested in finding out more, so I'll just throw out a few questions and hopefully not sound too obnoxious.

Assuming the moderators and admins are dedicated to making a decent RP community within the game, I'd want to be where they are, so which region are you guys playing on, EU or US?

What are town areas like within the game? Obviously RP thrives when it's convincing and immersive, so it's important to RP character downtime as much as it is uptime, are there bars or at least buildings with interiors for an immersive conversational RP?

What is the RP situation like currently? Is it hard to find a small group of RPers or is it relatively easy, obviously the game has only been out for a few days, but I'd like to get an idea of what's out there already.

How are you guys using the games mechanics to RP? Given the TPS combat and the physics based driving, RP questing or perhaps a racing circuit could be awesome.

I can't think of anything else at the moment, but hopefully this thread will spark a decent discussion, I'm interested in becoming a part of this and maybe helping the community grow. It seems a shame there are no dedicated RP servers in the game and that might create some issues with travel based RP, but nevertheless, I'm curious about the game and RP within it.

Hello there!

So on reflection to the questions you ask, well, currently there is only my self in any admin role, I am looking to get some people on board, but I think that'll be mostly for Clan leaders, people who also have a executive role in their clan who can direct roleplay.

On reflection to the situation of towns, sadly there is very few places with a interior that is not like being thrown into a cell with twenty hairy bikers, so on that department, the game is lacking with only a few places I've found worthy of being a Roleplay hubs.

As to the ability to jump in and find Roleplay, from my understanding right now it is none-existent, we are from what I perceive the only Roleplaying community that is organised into one Forum and we have 40 members, so this gives some form of scope into the RP potential, in all truth, I think unless Meta organised, sadly, you're not going to find any, but anything can happen.

One of the main issues at the moment is the chat functionalility that is far from perfect, it looks like Dev side they wanted to force everyone into microphone communication but when applied, they realized people don't like to talk to every Tom, Dick and Harry.

So in a panic to this, noticing how people just are not communicating, they are in a scurry to get a game worthy form of text communication out there.

As to what do I feel will be the main points of roleplay, it'll be killing, shooting and blowing stuff up, for some drug running and to others tracing the bandits / gangs actions, cat and mouse Roleplay along with a whole bunch of PvE / PvP Rp.

I'd say get this game only if you like the game firstly and foremost and any Roleplay you get ontop is like sugar coating, don't get this game just for Roleplay, wait for Neverwinter Nights Online or TESO, if you're purely Roleplay, but that's my honest opinion based on the game as of now, but I do hope they'll look to make it more Roleplay friendly.

I can only echo what Rousel has said. The only RP I've done is with my clan so far, but that may be partially due to the fact that chat is broken as hell right now.

I'm aiming to have something working by the time chat in game is working, though I have exams and deadlines at University in May. Expect more from me during the summer, though I won't release details yet.

I'm thinking about purchasing the game regardless, but I'm definitely interested in any RP that I can get out of it.

Thanks a lot for the responses, too, you guys seem pretty sweet.
