I dunno.. I think it's not really that difficult. You just have to differentiate between LORE and GAME MECHANICS.IMO there's no such thing as levels, instance runs etc. when I'm playing IC (In Character). Of course my character can only communicate in /say and /yell (guild chat or other is done by ME, the player, not the character).Death (in duels for example) isn't death, but defeat (a reason why I favor emote duelling over actually fighting) - in RP-PvP you lie down on your corpse if you "die" to signal that you're injured. Death is something you -choose- for your character when you RP.Although I do try to incorperate magic losely - it is a fantasy world after all, so it IS possible - but I try to keep it down on a "believeable" level. I once RPed a warlock, and it was a huge challenge to incorperate the various spells I had, but it was great fun. The summon portal graphic could be used as a way to magically bind someone, the teleport circle (I forgot the name of the skill) I used as a sort of "power up" etc.Really, the trick is to keep imagining that you ARE your character. In a given situation, just think "would this make sense within the boundaries of the given world?"
