Apr 10, 2013 Lore/Lorebreaking vs Opinions This is something that occurs quite a lot on this forum - if an idea is disliked it's stated as breaking lore by those who dislike it while others say it's fine or something similar. This isn't going to be a terribly long post but it's going to hopefully be informative. Lore/Lorebreaking implies that there are hard facts backing up the reason something can or cannot be done. Thus we know, for a fact, Sylvanas is an elf and current ruler of Lordaeron. Thus we know, for a fact, that Varian Wrynn is not an orc in disguise and did not brutally murder Tiffin before blaming it on the populace. If you're going to claim something is a fact, then you need to be prepared to back up your claim with lore supporting your claim. Even if you're 'opposing' an idea, you're proposing that it's breaking lore and are then relying on us, not to disprove you, but to prove you right - which then causes the other side in the argument to scurry off and sift through lore that proves them wrong and - quite honestly - I wouldn't do that and I'm sure most wouldn't. I don't want to lose my argument, so even if I'm wrong when I say 'Thrall is dead and C'thun is the new Warchief' you're not bothering to cite and back-up claims that I'm wrong. That's an extreme example with no grey area to debate, so a more realistic example: 'Edwin VanCleef also had a son who has taken up his father's cause and is working in the shadows and with more cunning than Vanessa.' No one can prove this right, no one can prove this wrong. Vanessa never even mentions what happened to her mother, for all we know this could be true. Those who claim it breaks lore need to bring up proof beyond 'I don't like it, so it's breaking lore'. They need to find arguments that specifically state Edwin could not have had a son. If you want to argue that it breaks lore, not etiquette but lore, then you have to back-up your claims. Now that that is settled, opinions. An opinion is a person's own personal view of a subject. An opinion is not a fact. An opinion is a personal belief. An opinion can, theoretically, be backed by facts but it is not by itself a fact. You can have the opinion that it's wrong for Sylvanas to rule Lordaeron, but the fact is she does currently rule Lordaeron. You can have the opinion that Deathwing isn't dead, but the fact is that he was blasted into next week by some chump named Go'el. You can have the opinion that it's breaking lore to say a gnome cannot be a hunter, but that doesn't mean anything because there's no statement that says gnomes cannot be hunters (inb4 'they can't select it in game' - doesn't mean a gnome can't be RP'd as a hunter). My hope is this post will educate the denizens of the WET forums on the difference and nip long arguments in the bud before they degenerate to ad hominem attacks.Iraelius71
Apr 10, 2013 Alternate reproduction methods? [Gross and educational, tread with caution.] So I'm writing terrible wow fiction and a point of contention I am exploring is a conflict between three siblings over continuing family lineage (responsibility to family), repopulating their nearly exterminated race (social responsibility, albeit in a hedonistic society) verses personal preferences (being a mom conflicts with the sisters' lifestyles, they expect their brother to take responsibility) and sexuality (their brother developed a fancy for another cast member of the same gender over many chapters). One solution, (the most fair solution) would be for one of the sisters to act as a surrogate, sharing the same mitochondrial dna with their brother and all. His partner would be giving material as the father. Of course, that would mean one of the sisters would have to have relations with their brother's partner, something no one would be happy with. (Thankfully no party would actually go through with it, the squick from such a proposal would be hilarious though.) In the reality these conflicts are handled via artificial insemination. But is that plausible in this setting? This made me research. This is what I found: 1780 the first successful recorded procedure was done on animals (britannica). 1785 was the first recorded successful procedure in a human by a Scottish surgeon John Hunter (britannica, internet gives exact year). There are supposedly records stating that this was attempted in the 1400s with King Henry IV of Castile and his wife Juana. Not sure if real or bs. /skeptic There are several methods of AI currently but the crude method of taking the genetic material fresh from one subject and putting it in the other (using a "conception cap") is still practiced. (wikipedia) Said material can survive naturally outside a body for up to a few hours under the right circumstances (mayo clinic). tl;dr: EEEEEeeeew! Given the data gathered I am under the impression that AI's existence in the Warcraft universe is plausible. I think it would be ok for the resident scholar to imply that other methods exist. It's likely not widely in practice among beings of sentience unless there are major fertility problems, though may be used on livestock. It probably isn't widely known and may be a sort of a wild rumor among non-scientific/educated circles. I'd like feedback from other brains though. /nodLeiah0
Apr 10, 2013 As These Words are Bandied About... ... I thought it best to create a thread so people can understand what these words/phrases/what have you are actually intended to mean. Mary Sue - There is the male counterpart to this phrase, Gary Stu or Marty Stu or whatever you want, and this is one of the most common things people cry out when they see a character. Most of the time they aren't saying the right term for the character. A Mary Sue type character is one who fulfills the very definition of the word perfection - this character is so perfect as to be unbelievable. Now maybe the character has flaws? Even the flaws are perfect and do not detract from the character but make the character more perfect than they already were. When this character appears this is when the term Mary Sue should apply. Special Snowflake - http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SpecialSnowflakeSyndrome this is the best definition I can find on the term and it gives a good example. A special snowflake character isn't necessarily a bad thing, nor is it a good thing, it's entirely left open to the interpretation of those playing the game. The best this can be summed up, for WoW, would be 'characters being roleplayed out of their racial norms'. So every engineering loving Night Elf, earth-hating dwarf, naturalist gnome, skinny pandaren, etc. etc. would be considered a 'special snowflake'. God Moding - Quite simply, this isn't making your character powerful, it is controlling the actions of other players without their prior consent. Metagaming - Using out of character knowledge to influence in character actions. Basically this means, using any knowledge your character shouldn't have in roleplay. So if their character was abused as a child, causing illusions to demonstrate the abuse would be metagaming. Now if your character found a way to draw that information out of their character and then made the illusions, it'd be completely different. Lore-breaking - This means taking established Blizzard lore and changing it. The keyword in that sentence is established. Anything that Blizzard has not touched on, this meaning grey areas in lore, is best tread with caution but is free game. Utilizing the grey area in RP does not break lore. Saying that orcs are in fact orks from Warhammer 40k would be lore-breaking, as it is established that they are not. Saying you are a Balrog is lore-breaking, as this is not Middle Earth. Roleplaying a character who is a member of nobility of any of the Seven Kingdoms? Not lore-breaking. Giving your character braces? Not lore-breaking. I believe that covers the most misused terms, there are a few others but these are the five that have the greatest occurrence rate on the WET forums.Iraelius22
Apr 10, 2013 Eric and the Dread Gazebo I was blathering about in the horde RP channel here on AD and the players in the channel didn't know the story of Eric and the Dread Gazebo. I figured I'd share it here as some of you young whippersnappers might not know it either. (PS: Get off my lawn.) Source: http://www.netfunny.com/rhf/jokes/98/Jul/gazebo.html ...Leiah1

Apr 10, 2013 Bag of Runes [GHI] I like to run plots from time to time and sometimes I like surprises. I might have a basic idea of what I want to do but have no idea about the details. I used to use runes and tarot cards to make these decisions but they're in a box somewhere so I made a very simple crude tool in Gryphonheart Items (GHI) that I've used to make plot decisions in the form of a bag of Norse runes. Typically used for divination, you can use the descriptions of said runes to get ideas for what happens next or for clues or whatever. It's widely up to interpretation which is what makes it such a handy tool. It prints the results on your textbox, only you can see it. I tend to use these definitions: http://www.sunnyway.com/runes/meanings.html Merkstave (/in opposition) runes are the opposite of the normal meaning. You can ignore the merkstave status based on your needs. This is the import code: \bf[cj|34|@Y:|7]|C^|7a[Z^O&itI|BN|7|3|4$T|SY|7|3\$g"sgtqlKn%v""cv+5q|7|3t<!7#,0&(3-t9=@@K,|7|3/a3|7VII?IGBK^i|4lAdXX\_5[T^mN|7|3Qtgg]gei!]|7|3(uivo-i|71_$U$"x&9Dt<$&5&6.6;188H)|7L$9;FOEEILTCNWQPHGHGUIIa^PNXfUSjYeWo^ir[ec^gbb-"-|40|43c+zz#&Q##$wv-#**0;w|7|3zB55+53.7J+|7|3.Q>DJL:H>A$SHD^?|7bw s/,y!L 41#+6&r"Rubhnp^lbeQquxL pl+g|7/&t)+'5@|4C|4Fv>+179'5+.=H)|7|3,^0|7|33VCILRRR]>|7|3A|UF|7|3IlY_XbqR|7uei^]iy |7#vftkwv2=@6j"!%ut%5x7|7:2"0'32ITL%8':9=21=MEIC;R|7U|39[%EIW?alBd=[_eHjuKmEZhf^iXrUw'Xz?msv!_&1b)Zjsot!j1<m4^y(w6t;Fw>d(&4"DO%G"A;8>,NY/Qx7>9E;U8Ze;]/CXXMOaDfqGi6aPLnyOq?[iYUw'XzChhxc"'2c*Yo"%u%#l3>o6V'#&8v=Hy@r4=048&HS)K#9H3M0R]3Uv?MG>LN<^i?a*N^IcFhsIk<Q_TnQs#TvF\crx["-^%Msm#i(f-8i0Sqxs2p7Bs:h3(".$B|4$76:/.:J?C;8BI7KAHHV|7Y|3=_?alBdIdWP^XacQgWnPr|4TgVilogmt)^%'45w spz&o(y%%nvrDEt;v=JK593+")&ST(J*LTgOZ/RJPH>W8|7[RTBVLGbm|4p|4sH|=M|7%(!Qt_nc_yZ|7"7;3JG9<g;OL>FQA2=m5ux/%,,a5*&@!|7D;,<4<A-Z\NY.QEEILwIIJBASIPPV-ScD|7|3GjaTdfbpQ|7|3TwdjprndgJynj)e|7-$r'1<l4((,/^2'#=y|7A44*42-6IT|4W|4Z/RFFJMxJJKCBTJQQW4[[eF|7|3|4wLobiiflllwX|7|3|4.|41|44|47g/q#"#w&-7s|7;<Gw?*9.*D%|7H]aYpm_b2aurdljyXc8|<=|7alA|WF|7RNZbUxMpUijia[ooap \|7|3|42b*nnt%np u3o|7 w(0#Fv|V |7C|8=<,02-0B4:49DBF?R9?S>PE?SWQIXZVVNgrG|LL|7#zOrkg\ZnOboteoehw'c|7|3|49i1q*+*"w00"m./-6,4l/5-<G(|7|3|4Y.|O3|7VWb7|=<|7ork@cP\NW?e]SlM|7$ P|FU|7|3X @deqqVjwUivo-i|71WY[5@p|Yu|7437(K CegF'|7YU*Mm67CC(<Ix;O=Z;|7^olonqdoDgN[\ZS_hpQ|7($T|=Y|713-|40(z!jmv[$rt'3o|77'x02<Gw|I!|7DoB80@JU*|M/|7RS^3VH<IB[<|7_%ELaVNd<ZRalwLoTii^fjG[haz[|7#N!rjz)4d|Qi|7@<l|Kq|7"y*2%Hx@-9+4f87;82F8DJO0|7S8<O;I?BB\g<_DYYNVZ0_TPjK|7n"k$'&'()*+,37/FC58&1|44d|Ji|7@<l4\X7s|7;PTLcRU%TheW_]lKV+N68D:D;AGA$PBKR]>|7|3|4oD|HI|7lmxMpfZWcevW|7z?qgfpw\$Ig#v+6|4 Here is the code if you want to put it together yourself: ...Leiah0

Apr 9, 2013 LF experienced RPer Hey you all :) I'm looking for a seasoned & experienced RPer that would be interested in being a part of my blog site. I have multiple bloggers that are interested in different aspects of the game, but I personally have never been on an RP realm nor do I have the interests. Since there is a lot of gamers who enjoy RPing, I was hoping to get a blogger that could appeal to the RPers out here and make this his/her niche. Please add me to real id if you would be interested: shadyshen@yahoo.com Thanks, Pnutbutter <Shady Shenanigans>Pnutbutter8
Apr 9, 2013 Describing characters. As someone who writes fiction as a hobby, I find things like descriptions and just writing in general come easy to me, in that once i get writing, I don't need to plan it out, I can just write freely. The problem I find is getting those first few words onto the page. After that, everything else comes quickly. With that in mind, I'm in the process of re-writing a description for a Forsaken Priest, and I've hit that first road block that comes when one has trouble organizing one's thoughts. Long story short, How does one describe what undeath looks like? Yeah, we see it in our characters, but trying to write it out is a little tricky. Or maybe I'm just thinking too hard.Raydian2
Apr 9, 2013 Backbiter Tavern (Open RP) The Backbiter Tavern is in a small desert village, with very few people living there. Inside the old tavern a mysterious warlock sits. He has black robes with strange purple runes on it. He has blond hair with a black bandana wrapped around his mouth. A strange demon (felhunter) sits by his side. He says to the barman, "Gimme another ale." and hands him a few coins. The dark room has many cobwebs and a couple lanterns in it. --------------------------------------------- Anyone can join, horde or alliance, however only one person can be the barman. Im the warlock. Have fun!Rexxigon44
Apr 9, 2013 Misrepresentation of the Gnomish intrest. Hello my fellow Azerothians, I am here today to discuss an oversight by the producers, directors and filmers of the promotional cinematic features that chronicle the struggle of the people of Azeroth for our future generations. Today I spent the time to watch them from the beginning for the 7th time, now that we have added the meeting of the Panderians to the archive, and I have come across, or I should say, FAILED to come across something very simple. There has not been a single gnome shown in our archives since the start! The first shows a Dwarf, Night Elf, Forsaken, Tauren, Orc, and a Human, the Second introduces our new allies the Draenei and our new enemies the Blood Elves, and the Trolls make their first appearance, however brief. The third shows nothing of either the horde and alliance, and the fourth shows a GIANT STATUE of a Goblin! Nothing of the Worgen, I may add, but that is understandable given their nature. The newest gives an entire fight scene to the Pandariens, showing many more of their race than any single other in any of our archive, unless you wish to count the scourge as a race, they would take that cake for their appearance under the frosty now-dead Lich King. It is shameful to my people, we who have lost our entire GLORIOUS city in our struggle, to not even have a sideways glance in our archive of the history of our world. I will also add that without Gnomish technology none of the moving-picture archives would exist in the first place! I think it is not too much to ask, for the next major event in Azeroth, Gnomes at least be represented as one of the peoples that live on this wonderful planet. Sincerely ShådôwfìrèShådôwfîrè2
Apr 9, 2013 Scars left from magical healing This is an idea I've had rolling around for a while that I thought I'd put out there to get some feedback on. By now, any of our characters have been injured enough to die hundreds of times over, and are pretty much only alive (or clinging to their unlife) thanks to the dedicated efforts of healers. But what if, like how major surgery can leave scars, major healing magic can also leave a lasting mark? I've got some different ideas for the kinds of marks left, and I figure that they would vary depending on the kind of magic used to heal. I figured that Shaman healing could, in some cases, actually replace the ruined flesh / bone with raw elemental matter. This could range from having teeth made of marble to eyes that are actually small orbs of water, or in my character's case a skull (and horns) that are dark iron. Basically any elemental material, as long as it could make sense for the body part in question (bones are more likely to be metal or stone than air or water, for example). Druid healing scars could be kinda similar, except instead of raw elemental material they replace body chunks with plant matter. Where once was a heart could be a pulsating knot of roots, hair could be vines, fingernails could be chips of bark, etc. I'm not 100% sure on what to do for divine healing. Sunwalker (Tauren paladin / priest) healing would be using solar energy, so it could be plants or, as I saw one person playing it, their body slowly being replaced with raw solar energy. He eventually became basically a mass of energy held together by his armour, but he took it to a bit of an extreme. I'm totally open to ideas as to what kinda scars divine healing could leave behind! Anyway, just wanted to get some feedback on this idea, or just put it out there in case anybody else likes it and feels like using it. Just remember, Wolverine might have an adamantium plated skeleton, but only by being beaten to withing an inch of your life and being restored by a shaman can you have a skeleton actually MADE of the stuff!Melahna46
Apr 8, 2013 How to translate IRL to RP Ok so in real life I was a soldier. I am a fairly well rounded person, skilled in hand to hand and well versed and practiced with firearms. I can apply first aid for a large variety of injuries to include gunshot wounds to the head. I can also cook and sew and do other various household tasks. I have devoted myself to learning everything I may need to become a self sufficient warrior. I'd argue that I am more fit to be a soldier then a human being. The question is how would I translate this life to a role play character without coming off as a Rambo type warrior like so many portray? How do you play this type without getting under people skin and whats a good way to start the character off?Bannanaclip3
Apr 7, 2013 Go ahead and poke some holes in my plot :) I want to better my character's storyline so please tell me what you think and let me know if there is any faulty wiring in this Goblin's design ;) Smaragd is sassy but has a dry sense of humor that is sometimes conceived as being rude. She is very materialistic and loves Gems but her passion is Unique daggers She grew up in the Steamwheedle Cartel like most Goblins and is estranged from her family. They grew apart after she went into business against them Ever since she left out on her own she has been determined to make a name for herself as the number one Trade Cartel around and so she founded Tänn Smaragd4

Apr 7, 2013 mrp backup? One my friends lost all of their MRP profiles somehow. not sure on the details, but learning from others misfortunes I started making backups of all my profiles, pretty much Copy pasting everything into a notepad doc for all my characters. This started taking a while, mostly due to pasting it in note pad not carrying over line breaks, so I started looking through the MRP folder of my addons, and I cannot find the file that has all the profiles in it! Does anyone know where the file/folder is that I would have to copy to make backups of all my profiles? Or am I stuck with the tedious task of copying and pasting note pad documents, copying every small field I have available?Masayume5

Apr 7, 2013 Gnome or Night Elf Monk? I'm having a hard time deciding between the two. Either way I'd like some feedback on their stories. Ginxee was a minor assistant on the irradiator that had destroyed Gnomregan, and after witnessing the horror she had caused she had taken to drinking. She was kicked out of a bar one day and happened to find one of the wandering Pandaren who took her in and taught her temperance. She became enthralled with the special effects that the brews and teas had, and decided to dedicate her life to studying them and the Pandaren martial arts. My night elf monk would be a highborne arcanist with a similar backstory to Ginxee's. As an adding question to this, were the non-Pandaren masters in the Peak of Serenity there after the mists had parted or before?Ginxee5

Apr 6, 2013 New RPer seeking guidance Hello all! I'm new to RP and having never written anything on my characters I was wondering if I could get some help. I wanted my character to be an explorer and one who lives off the land. So I was thinking of having her become a scout....here is the story I have so far.. Giselle was taught as a young girl to live off the land. Her mother had passed away in childbirth and her father had raised her the best he knew how. Her father being a game hunter often took Giselle with him on his hunting trips. He taught her the art of tracking, shooting, fishing, and harvesting the skins and meats of their kills. Her father would load the cart with the furs, skins, and meats and sell them at the markets. They were not ritch by no means but they made an honest living and Giselle loved being in the forest. So when Giselle came of age and heared one of the largest land owners in (not sure if I should make him from Duskwoods or Westfall) was looking to hire some scouts to find a large piece of land big enough for a whole town to be built on it. Giselle jumpped at the opportunity! He hired 6 people but not to work together. They were all to split up and scour lands. All findings were to be extensively noted including such things as wildlife found on the land, plants, temperature. And a detailed sketching of the whole area. The person who found the best and safest piece of land would be handsomely reward. This is the only idea I could come up with for an exploding hunter. If I have made a party foul please let me know...the same if its garbage but please try and be kind :)Gíselle10

Apr 5, 2013 Need help deciding a last name Takumi is mainly a warrior, but he's a little bit of his parents' classes too. His father is a shaman, and his mother is a monk. In his RP story, he befriends a group of dwarves, and lives in Ironforge. I've tried really hard to come up with a good last name for Takumi, but I always end up with nothing. I was wondering if anyone had suggestions. Also, I'm thinking of making an addition to his RP story, where he changes his last name to a dwarven-sounding one.Takumi1
Apr 5, 2013 Lore question. May not be the best forum, but I figured RPers would know a good resource. basically I want to know which books cover the major and somewhat major events of each expansion, such as the isle of quel'danas from BC, etc. or domination point in MoP. I honestly dont have a lot of time to quest and get all that lore so I basically wanted to read the book(s) on em or somewhat detailed cliff notes, etc. I havent even been able to do the thunder island dailies and really wanna know the story, preferably in novel form cause of all the detail, but cliff notes are good too. I more or less know the novel order up the the cataclysm one and I can just google the timeline, but wanna know the important lore features etc. Like if you didn't do end time dungeons you wouldn't even have heard of murozond. So I don't wanna miss things like that, wrathgate etc.Kaijin6
Apr 5, 2013 Character Development Hello, Moon Guard. I have a few questions about character development for roleplayers here. I've been tossing around an idea for a book (or... world, rather-- not quite sure what to classify it as). However, I consider myself still relatively new when it comes to developing a character-- goals, beliefs, etc. I encourage the discussion of the following questions within this thread. As always, please try to be respectful of others. Thank you. 1. Where does inspiration, for you as a player, come from when you wrote/write your characters? 2. Sometimes roleplayers find that their real-life personalities and beliefs can interfere with the character's. How can this be avoided? Is it something that should necessarily be avoided at all? 3. What do you think is the key to creating a believable, yet unique character? 4. So the foundation of the character has been laid out. What are other ways that the character can branch out from a set foundation? 5. Do you find writing the character's history before creating the character is more beneficial than fleshing that out as your develop him or her? Is the latter a valid way to do so?Ruthelle7
Apr 5, 2013 Lonely Tavern (Open RP) Upon entering the tavern one may notice the small bar at the other side of the room. A bar-tender wiping the counters from the customers who'd just left. He nods to each new visitor, letting them know he realizes their presence and is willing to help at their command. "Welcome, the names Joe." He had a rusty voice, possibly from all the smoke in the air left by the travelers who'd come and gone. Joe had been the bar keep for many years now, knowing all the tricks and favorite drinks. Putting little spins on his own and creating legendary concoctions. There were tables all around the edges of the wall, and one large one in the middle for big groups. The tables seemed worn down from the many uses, and weight they had held over the years. The place wasn't the nicest place to be, it was more of a hide-a-way for those that needed it. Which would lead to the Priestess, covered in her long gown. Elegant to the sight, sitting properly in one of the far tables. She'd keep her head down, sipping on a glass. What was in the glass was unknown at this time. Her fingers tracing over the rim, a soft humming being heard from the cup. She never looked up from her glass, keeping her head down. Although the Light around her would give off the aura of welcome to any that may sit with her.Merilynn0
Apr 5, 2013 RP on......Nazgrel? Why not?! Yes I know it isn't an RP server but I love my home server of Nazgrel and I can't afford a transfer. So here is what I am pondering, how many of you would be interested in RP in a Traders Guild? When I founded my guild Tänn, my intention was that we would make a name for ourselves as the rulers of the AH. You need something, we have it and if we don't have it, then we can get it for a fee of course /eye glint. We would take orders from other players and fill them for our commission. You could specialize in different fields, from an herbalist to a rare item hunter who tracks down that perfect piece of gear needed to complete a player's xmog. Anything your heart desired so long as you were raking in the cash. ( Time is Money friend). Unfortunately now my sad little guild is down to one other member, my boyfriend who co-founded Tänn with me, and we are lonely. Would anyone like to come join our humble little Traders Guild?Smaragd20
Apr 5, 2013 Putting the WORLD back in Warcraft I started playing WoW because I was interested in the open world-ness of it: the random encounters, the endless possibilities, the world pvp, the rp, etc. The dungeons are battlegrounds were fun for a minute, but they got boring. They didn't seem real. So I decided to roll a new toon that only existed in the world. I've completely eliminated dungeons and battlegrounds from my activities. Total killing blows = world killing blows, etc. I've found it does a couple neat things for my play experience: - Forces me to explore the ridiculously vast world Blizzard has created for us. So much of it is skipped or overlooked when we power level to 90 through dungeons and BGs. Even leveling only in the world, there's still plenty of areas I wasn't able to get to and will likely go back and explore later. - World PVP is my jam. It's what keeps the game fun, entertaining, lively, unpredictable, and challenging. Here's the catch: it only exists in the world. The more time spent in it, the more likely I am to find it. - The challenge. When I hit 90, I'm still going to be playing by these same guidelines. Most of my time is going to be spent in Pandaria, looking for PVP, doing dailies, farming (and actual farming), RPing, etc. But I'm going to be at a disadvantage because I won't be equipped in super easy to attain gear. PVP gear will be earned through world PVP, which is more rewarding, and I'll likely be outgearred. But I'm still going to wreak havoc. That's going to feel good. If anyone is interested in a playstyle like this, and putting the world back in Warcraft, I'd be happy to have people join me. Let me know here, or roll a Horde toon on Emerald Dream and shoot me a message.Johnyawesome6
Apr 5, 2013 In search of an active Rp-PvP community. Was one on Emerald Dream but that has fallen into disrepair. Was told there was one on Ravenholdt but there only seems to be about two dozen active players on the entire server (I am exaggerating of course but, sadly, not that much). Any other suggestions? Ill even do a PvP Realm or an RP realm so long as there is an active RP-PvP community.Papilon11
Apr 4, 2013 How do you deal with trolls? Recently there has been quite a few guilds on WRA who seem to do nothing but troll RPers. Myself and a handfull of others are worried that WRA is going to become another Kirin Tor. What do you do to combat against trolls and make it feel "safe" for RPers again?Aeolidae7
Apr 4, 2013 So, about Vrykul naptime... So I'm planning on tying a new toon's story to the Vrykul in a few ways. The problem is, I want the character to be around 17-18 years old. Rather than just blunder ahead I did some research and found that for him to be 17-18 now, the Vrykul would have been in stasis when he was around the age I would have wanted him to have interaction with them. Is there any way to make this work and still be sound in the lore, or did all of the Vrykul wake up the minute the Alliance and Horde made landfall in Northrend, and not a second before? Thanks in advance. ((Previously posted in wrong section >.>))Helbrenn1

Apr 4, 2013 Can we take ONE server back? Do you Love RP? I do I love PvP as well. And the combination of the two is so synergistic as they fuel one another. Can we just take one RP-PvP Server back from the people who have polluted it? RP-PvP is commonly misunderstood to mean that the roleplaying part is optional. In fact, these servers were started in response to petitioning from roleplayers, who felt that the ability to engage in PvP added realism. I am one of these people. Can we all pick one RP-PvP server and: Report Bad names Ostracize the trolls/greifers and any OOC play. Maintain a positive atmosphere for roleplaying Can we pick one and make a haven a shining ideal of what RP-PvP should be?Papilon55

Apr 3, 2013 Looking into trying RP-want advice & have ?'s Oh hi, I'm looking into trying to start up on an RP-PvP realm or an RP realm (first preferred, as I've spent all my WoW career since day 1 on a PvP server. However after reading a lot of the posts about "how to RP" and all of that I have a couple major questions and concerns 1. It seems that a lot of RP groups are tight nit and it might be hard to get into a group especially one that is a good fit with a persons play style etc. 2. I'm a healer by nature and I've seen a lot of posts about toning back heals, etc which makes taking the first step towards RP a bit more daunting 3. I don't really know anything about the RP servers themselves other than Emerald dream is quite full, and ravenholdt is on its own CRZ and didn't know if there were general recomendations or the like Also I'm open to any other advice anyone has, I'm sure I'll have more questions as things go along TLDR: Halp I'm a noob at RP and don't know if its worth taking the plungeAleda6
