I never said it had to be all serious business, I just don't like incoherent spam that's only connected by it being in the same thread.
Seriously, pretty much any RP has at least SOME story or substance to it, even if it is lighthearted and funny and silly. If it doesn't have continuity, then it's not an RP, since it's merely an exchange between one or two people with another exchange between one or two people etc, with completely incoherent and incomprehensible reasoning as to why they're so far removed from each other.
An RP is a collaboration of creative minds trying to make a mutually enjoyable time for all, spamming an RP with unrelated junk is insulting to those trying to actively enjoy something with others.
Think of it as a game of Team Fortress 2 (Or other online game), where someone on your team keeps spamming cheap weapons or hogging the ammo or teamkilling or whatnot when everyone else just wants to have fun, it's the same level of disrespect.
*uses my magick to turn the humble cooking flame into an instant unquenchable inferno, charring the meat black in but a moment, then proceeds to throw the heads of every member of the expedition team in front of the fire clear for the human to see.*
You are trespassing upon the land my people have protected for centuries, state your business so that you may be judged by a jury of my tribe, walk back to where you came from, or die. Your human weapons have never bested me before, and though your friends came close to entertaining me before I took their heads, I daresay it was only because I had to keep track of several humans, and you're but a single ape with nowhere to run except home.
