RPR's Living Library Event (AMA)

Posted by Kim on November 12, 2022, 9:00am

Inspired by real-world events of a similar nature, this week-long OOC event aims to broaden our minds and showcase the rich diversity of our community. :)

Players interested in becoming "books": pick a unique aspect about yourself. (As per RPR's rules, religious and political topics should be avoided.) It may be cultural heritage, a niche hobby, an unusual profession, etc. Then post a topic in the Smalltalk forum that starts with "AMA" and includes some details about whatever you picked. Please only post one AMA topic per person to avoid overwhelming things!

For example:
  • AMA: self-employed basket weaver
  • AMA: Lakota heritage
  • AMA: kayak marathoner
  • AMA: raptor rehabilitator
  • AMA: 5 years with Parkinson's disease

You can then then peruse the "books" by asking appropriate, well-meaning questions.

We are here to learn about (or teach) new things, and as such, there's a possibility for some questions to be worded gracelessly--effort should be made to educate, not shame ignorance. Questions may be along the lines of:
  • What was the hardest race you ever did?
  • How difficult is typing with Parkinson's? What do you do to make it easier?
  • What do your birds like to snack on?

This event will go through the 20th of November! Thanks to Ilmarinen for dreaming up this event :)
