"You are not your character."This should be in 72pt neon blinking glitter text...not only on this article, but as a prompt before logging in for some people. The headaches that this has caused me over the years....my god. On a site I used to RP on...there are people that STILL confuse the actions of my character, who was a very scary woman, to my actions. Four years later, I'm still told by people that they're leery of approaching me because of my character's reputation. It's easy to get emotionally invested in your character. You spend so much time developing them and seeing the world through their eyes and creating these adventures and experiences for them....but there's lines you shouldn't cross. Always remember where your character ends and where you begin.Unfortunately...all three listed problems are something I'm dealing with with my current GM. He's a lovely guy most of the time but I dread RPing with him. He's extremely controlling...and he has about 5 characters that are all....him. With different accents. The characters are NEVER wrong, always pulling things out of their ass in order to control a conversation/situation to be "right." ...And I've been scolded several times OOCly because my character greatly dislikes one of his and doesn't hide it very well at all.
