Work was just awful and of course I had no sleep at all for the three nights before it, plus I had a headache the entire day. Those things added up to me wanting to do nothing but hide under my bed. I had been planning on going out and getting at least a good lunch or dinner, but I wasn't up to even that. So instead I stayed home and had noodles! Luckily they were yummy, and my time alone was what I needed. So yay for quiet birthdays!
I mostly puttered around, when not hiding. I played a tiny bit of FFXI, but not much since it took nearly two hours to upgrade/patch the damned thing. RPed a casual scene on the MUSH (eh, MUX, one day I'll stop calling it a MUSH), which was fun but made me worry I was perhaps doing something wrong/had an incorrect understanding of the theme.
To anyone who knows Garou stuff, am I handling this in a fair/IC way?
I play a kinfolk, lowish WP (3), not the most brave fellow in general, etc. Of late, garou have been having a good time making him jumpy and keeping him on edge. It amuses them to watch him twitch and babble and such. Lately, non-garou have picked up on his jumpiness and have been doing the same thing: Scaring him to watch him react.
Now here's where my question comes in: After someone scares him, once he ICly settles down a little, I pose him pausing. Though not easily seen in the pose, I have him trying to figure out what he's really feeling from that person. Seeing if he picks up on that "OMG! I have to get away NOW NOW NOW!" sort of thing that comes from garou/curse, or if it's just a normal scare.
So is that valid? He knows somewhat what the curse is, so is it fair to use that as a kind of "garou detector"? If it's a non-garou, he'll then usually settle down and be more like his old easygoing self, but if it's a garou then I keep him on edge and skittish.
I'm just worried I'm unfairly picking up more IC knowledge than I should be.
