- Think of roleplay as putting on a theater mask. You put on a character, and must display either the Theatrum Romanum group title or a flip title clearly showing you are in roleplay mode. Roleplay is governed by the ROMA roleplay rules (the Lex Scaena- see below) and generally managed by the Theatrum Romanum group.
- General social experiences are the everyday actions of visitors and Citizens- chatting in the plaza, shopping in the Market, relaxing in the tavern, trying one’s hand at swordplay in the arena, etc. These social experiences are governed by the tenants of the ROMA 12 Tables. Anyone without a roleplay 'mask' on is just being social.
There are two kinds of experience in ROMA: roleplay and general social.
