After many many years roleplaying in other games, I finally attempted to take that step in EVE. It's quite different, I must admit. Difficult to know where to go. It feels like there's RP going on, but just not anywhere near me.
At least hanging out in The Summit and OOC gives me a little insight. I'm sure I'll settle in eventually.
Naturally, being new and unbearably enthusiastic (it'll wear off, I'm sure), I have a few questions.
1) Reading this forum's player driven content section, it strikes me that there isn't a lot of, well... Small-scale stuff. I see expos, conferences, storylines, but if I were to put a 50 million isk bounty on my character's frigate within a certain timeframe in a certain system, in an RP setting of course, would that even be interesting? I'm getting the sense that EVE RP is mostly about private 1 to 1 stuff, and rarer, larger events.
2) Connected to the above, how do you usually do roleplay events? Join a custom channel and go at it? Try to keep it in spess as much as possible?
3) Is there an updated list of active roleplaying corps somewhere, preferably Minmatar FW related? The one I've seen on this forum seems a bit outdated, and though I may just have been unlucky with who was active at the time, the observed tolerance for my dumb questions in the OOC channel isn't too high. EVE players are EVE players.
