Do you ever roleplay as yourself/your kintype? If so, what have been your experiences?

 

I used to roleplay Warrior Cats really heavily. I think that may have stemmed from the “small” feeling of a domestic cat, mixed with the “wild” feeling that was present in the feline characters. At that point, I wasn’t aware of my identity, and if you had told me I someday would be I probably would have laughed in your face. There was absolutely 0 indication at the time of a theriotype, but in reflection, I can see it.

 

However, since then I’ve found it really strange to roleplay as a feline, especially one so close to myself. I also don’t participate in roleplaying in otherkin spaces… It’s really uncomfortable, in my opinion.

Hm. I certainly haven’t done this a lot. “Roleplaying” can have at least a couple of meanings, though.

In the sense of published game worlds with dice or other adjudication rules, I’ve sort of woven in some elements on a couple of occasions, but nothing very direct. For example, I played a Sidhe briefly in a Changeling: the Dreaming game, but she wasn’t intended to be an accurate depiction of me, or even really an idealized me or anything like that. I also had a fairly long-running Malkavian character in a Vampire game that I chose to give the background detail of having been an unawakened Sidhe before she was Embraced (which would destroy the faerie soul in the process). Nor have I seriously mocked myself up in anything freeform like Second Life/Inworldz nor in standard MMOs like Warcraft, Lord of the Rings Online, etc.

Then there is the sense of pseudo-actions e.g. “*rustles wings*” or “*perches in the rafters*”, which I have been known to do now and again in certain threads – not really in current forums per se, more like in the email list days of yore, but it’s sort of the same idea – and particularly in IRC. I don’t really think of this as “roleplaying”, though, more like conceiving of the e-space as if it were a physical one, or something more akin to adding flavor with emoticons.
