Toxic Gaming Behavior: Inappropriate Role playing
To understand inappropriate roleplaying, we first need to understand what roleplaying is. Roleplaying is a type of game where players assume the roles of characters in a fictional setting. Players take responsibility for acting out these roles within a narrative, either through acting or through a process of structured decision-making regarding character development. Players must abide by a formal system of rules and guidelines during play. In this type of play, the players are fully immersed in the gameplay. Unlike games where players sit and play passively, they are involved in what happens next in the game. Their actions direct the play.
There are different types of role play games (RPG's), from tabletop games like Dungeons & Dragons to role play video games like Assassin's Creed Valhalla.
