I am a relatively new roleplayer (been doing it for almost 5 months only) and I have just left my roleplay with the main group I joined. I was roleplaying in Terraria, by the way.
Why did this happen?
Well, things got awkward. Real awkward. it was supposed to be a war / drama server, but instead the war was completely halted and instead, there was what I can only consider a glorification of erotic role play (ERP) ripe with promiscuity and hedonism. While those interested in it were always, and I want this to be very clear, extremely respectful in how they did it — not even once have I seen ERP in public channels — the overall … "feel" of the server started to get really awkward for me. In the end, it was a situation that had my last living character likely getting involved into forced ERP — which again was very well respected, they even gave me the option to essentially disconnect and not really have to go through with the ERP itself — that overflowed my cup.
Because after that happened, and even though ERP didn't even canonically occur (with or without me present), I just feel very very uncomfortable playing my character.
In the end, I said my goodbyes and left the server a few hours ago, likely for a long time if not for good.
Is this a common problem? How do you more experienced folk handle unwanted ERP?
