in Roleplay gaming. The act of taking one character
from one complete
game, and translating it into a completely
different game, with little to no basis
for doing so. Usually looked
down upon as the sign of an underaverage roleplayer(Or one who does
not want too subscribe to any lore or rules that the game already has set) by the community he or she interacts with.
Also considered a type of Metagaming.
A: (So.. your character is a viking.)
A: (Your flying
a space ship, and you arent human. You do realize that this is a scifi game and humans are thousands
of years away
from being vikings.)
B: (Still a viking. Brought
my character over from x game name here
A: (*sigh* Thats cross gaming, you know.)
