Excited to see Roleplay is being taken seriously and being given due consideration throughout the design purpose.

Thank you for the excellant post

RP adds depth to all those simple spread out tasks and makes them less mundane. Without RP an MMO becomes a chore to me. I cant wait to see this game.

If RP was being taken seriously then gameplay wouldn't be considered as an entirely different aspect of the game...the comicbook theme provides a consistent foundation for both...when you just insert generic mmo mechanism X and hope for the best then they diverge and one undermines the integrity of the other. This reads very badly for the game imo.

I would love to see some roleplay elements in the process of character creation. Another words...wouldn't be cool if you start with a plainclothes character and play out your origins of your powers, and eventually create you're costume.

This person clearly never studied theatre, where the term "role" was created.

Being master chief is not a role, it's a character, is a persona. The role is the function you have in the events among the other characters. The blaster Chief guy does have a role naturally, since the game has a story and characters, but you have no way to play his role, you can't decide what to do, you are a spectator, not the player, you undergo his role.

Halo is closer to a film than a role-playing game.
