I would be annoyed. It wouldn't bother me in the slightest if I ended up having to rp being in love with someone who oog was not my appropriate gender- especially for 10 minutes. It's one thing to not want to rp that with your ex or someone who you have a very bad oog relationship with, but I'd rather see the effect removed than support narrow-mindedness and homophobia by letting people skip the effect because they are uncomfortable with 10 minutes (or hell, even 5 days) of rp. Love doesn't have to mean sex, especially in a fantasy setting. Courtship is a fine option and shouldn't get anywhere near uncomfortable in 5 days.Mobius said:I can't think of a single Marshall who would rebuke, let alone Card, a Player for choosing not to act under a Role-Play effect because it made them extremely uncomfortable. If a player said, "I was just hit with Love, the only other person in the room is someone I'm uncomfortable being 'In Love' with, I choose not to play it out" every Marshall I've met would back them up.
Love is almost a stand-alone in that it is a very powerful Role-Play Only effect and has no other In Game Consequences. The closest analogue is Charm, but Charm deals with neither Agape nor Eros and, as such, can be comfortably roleplayed without the deeper connotations associated with Love.
