In my experience, whenever a player tries to fill a role they don't have much experience with... they tend to revert back to their usual ways, even if they're playing a character hilariously underequipped for it. But if one of them do manage to find a new facet of themselves to express through the game, it's rather exciting to watch.

Well, its official, Fluttershy is a better roleplayer then Rarity.

I think we can officially consider Fluttershy's Yona to be a Lawful alignment since her plan involves justice XD

Fluttershy may not know Tribbles, but even she knows All Your Base.

That or it's a coincidence.

Kinda reminds me of one of my friends who I attend a LARP with. So, I've known my friend Mike for a little over a decade now. He's smart, witty, and generally rather charismatic. And the characters he plays reflect that. His most notable character I remember him playing is a billionaire businessman who ran a super team. And not Batman-style where he's a super martial artist and detective. He just hires and convinces people.

So imagine my surprise when I show up to my first day at this LARP and he's playing a basic tank build and roleplaying as the dumbest man to ever live. He recently multiclassed Druid, which he refuses to call anything but "healing Wizard," and his version of the first aid ability is to beat the tar out of you until you wake up and feel suddenly very motivated to be moving because it means the "first aid" stops. And I don't mean that that's what he's doing mechanically, I mean he's using the regular first aid ability and just roleplaying that way.

It is fun to find new facets of your character you didn't begin with or plan for.

In my first D&D 5e experience, I played a half-ork barbarian with low intelligence, but decent charisma (mostly for Intimidation). She couldn't roll well enough to intimidate a rabbit, but somehow she rolled well on Persuasion checks. So she quickly became the party's back-up face when the main face was busy doing other things.

This is why i like to take in part for a new character a part of who I am in playing. and expanding from that point into new areas.

So i get comfortable trying from a point im okay with into doing something new and seeing if its for me as a new like, or a rough spot i may never be good with down the way.

D&D life lesson number &@#$&:

expose the vizier/advisor as a baddie First, THEN slug him in the face during open court.

Once my Paladin fought the evil duke in front of the court as part of a judiciary duel, to prove the party was right to accuse the duke (and so avoiding the kingdom arrested us).

My Paladin won, but then the BBEG decided subbtlety was overrated, turned the dying duke into a Death Knight, and things escalated quickly.

I haven't gotten to do any intrigue at all in my "campaigns", as all my games are on the fly with whatever kids I can coax off the computers. Any Game of Thrones-style talkative story I would expect to end, like Game of Thrones episodes, with violence.
