This is a short roleplay guide to help your IPCs, Cyborgs and AI’s play less like a person and feel more robot
If you want to play a character who is more human-like than robot you can obviously feel free but I do find that the majority of players do that and I wish for more people to try to roleplay a genuinely robotic character as I find it fun
Your vocal mannerisms can very quickly make yourself look like a robot, replace most words with more robotic sounding ones, the most common one is replacing “Me”, “I” and “Myself” with “ThisUnit”, another thing I like to do is to call people by [Jobrole]Personel
so instead of saying:
Hey James, could you cook up some bicaridine?
you can say :
ThisUnit queries if ChemistPersonel James Smith could synthesise some bicaridine?"
but ofcourse, writing this can double or even triple the time it takes to talk to someone so don’t feel bad if you cut some words out if you are in a rush, the sentance can still be said as
ThisUnit requests bicaridine
ThisUnit requires the synthesis of bicaridine
overall I wouldn’t really theres an exact way of speaking
I might add some more details onto this but I am not certain, the speech part for me is the mot important part of roleplaying a robot, generally you can think to yourself “what is the most robotic/efficient way I could do this”, especially with things such as where you stand and what you hold, these tiny details are how I help immerse myself
