I love this guide! it helped me refine some of my rather crude rp characteristics. However I have something to ask. Since level and gear are a mirror of things you have accomplished in game, requiring skill and effort, should they affect rping in a way? For example, I find it logical to assume that a lvl 3 Warrior attempting to fight against a lvl 45 ranger has 0 odds of survival ic wise since the 45 ranger is HIGHLY more experienced in combat and has aquired more refined and of better quality equipment. Also, should classes affect our rp in any way? For example, as a ranger is it normal to assume that I am more agile, swift and have hightened senses compared to other classes due to that fact?
Also is it normal to assume that the various classes have their own kinds and abilities ic? Ex. a thief can shadowstep ic wise to turn invisible, whereas a ranger can claim he has animalistic senses and an understanding of animal talk due to the beastmaster element of his proffession.
that said should it also be that the player puts his own limitation according to his own trait system, which can be seen as a sort of "what does my character specialise into ic wise as well"? For example a specced marksman can assume he has better aim then all rangers, but a specced nature magic ranger could claim he has an unnatural affinity to the spirits of nature and communes with the spirits of the wild even?
