Within New Babbage, some people have more than one av, or play several characters with a single base av. It seems to give the oportunity to play quite complex and rather fun rps, mainly because the communication between avs for seamless rp is much better than when played by different people!
I must admit though, that I find it almost impossible to keep track of which av is which, even when I have been told. It’s my failing, in both ability and memory, for which I beg your forgiveness. It does mean that if you are running several avs, I will probably treat them all as individuals, with individuals behind the keyboard, because despite trying, I can’t keep track!
If you run several characters from one av, it is easier for me, though it may take me a short while to pick up the individual character, I hope my lack of speed in such things is not too much of an anoyance.
From my point of view, as typist and Tepic, it doesn’t worry me that I do not always know, the rps seem to go well, so it doesn’t spoil my enjoyment. I am not sure how others see this though, so I though I would raise the issue. If you play several avs, is it a pain when I don’t realise which is you? If you play several characters in one av, is the delay in recognising who you are a problem, or can it be easily smoothed over in conversation?
