Hello, I have been playing Sindome for about 3 months now and that would make me a “fairly new” player, since I know some people have been playing for almost a decade.
I have to say that for the most part I quite enjoy the game, it has provide me with hundreds of hours of free entertainment and for that I am both grateful to the staff and the player community.
However, there is something which I have encountered that often discourages me of enjoying the game and that is the “attitude” of NPCs when interacting with them.
I don’t know if this has only happened to me or if it is supposed to be part of the “Theme” but 90% of all interaction between NPCs and my character have been negative. Mixers are rude, hostile and physically aggressive. Copies are condescending, arrogant and unhelpful. Law enforcement agents are self-righteous bullies with a badges. The list goes on, you get the idea.
So honestly, it is extremely disappointing that after spending several minutes trying to get a GM to respond, when the puppet comes to life it generally treats you badly. My personal experience with NPCs has dissuade me of wanting to interact with them at all if I can avoid it, because they don’t seem to listen to reason or to persuasion and almost always put my character in a bad situation and generally leave him worse off. I have been slapped, yelled at, insulted, robbed, assaulted, beaten, undermined, ignored, etc by NPCs.
Anyway, I just wanted to express my frustration and give you guys my 2 chyen about this matter.
Also I would very much, like to hear about other players personal experiences with NPCs and maybe even hear the opinion of staff members regarding the subject.
