Silent Scream-sign ups-(OOC)
Gender and age: Male (349)
Class and faction: Alliance Warrior
Basic description: Stands tall at 8'1. Stronger than the average kaldorei. He weighs a bit more due to his size and muscular figure. His skin is light blue shade. Not the smartest kaldorei in the world.
Armor and weapons: Heavy plated armor, all matching to make him look even more intimidating than normal. He wields two giant obsidian axes that could probably cut a tauren in half.
Basic general history: He was born in the dark and cold atmosphere of Northrend. In the icy tundras of Icecrown. He doesn't have many friends, but he has protected the ones he has. But if he fails at protecting them, he goes after the murderer and slaughters them.
Brief summary of personality: Quiet, short-tempered, and hates murderers, thieves, and crooks.
Reason you want in: Aldiran has heard multiple rumors about the murder of his friend, Captain Jenkins, and wishes to investigate his death. He has also heard some rumors about a small organization having to do with stealth and mischief.
@Murderbeard, if you would please come in either OOC or IC and give a few details, we can build some more suspense.
I am in and out of the forums today, but not much time for posting. If you give a good fight scene the Taipan will notice you, but remember if you have invisible pets, that is a bit OP. And yes I know they have cats and so forth in game that can stealth.
Also Alabron, if you are looking to join the Taipan, keep in mind their tactics are to remain unseen and hidden, not out in the open fighting anything unless attacked. Self defense is one thing, An assassin is a silent invisible killer that leaves little to no trace. Remaining in disguise and staying OUT of the limelight.
I do hope you will be speaking to Malakai and be willing to help him in whatever capacity.
@Alabron, if your pet is there helping you it must break stealth to attack. And if you are looking to join the Taipan you need to be more subtle and maybe set some traps or something. I will grant you the troll attacked first and you did well. But that is not something the Taipan would be concerned about. You are just another tavern brawler in their eyes.
This is not a pvp arena, this is a murder mystery with a secret organisation to track down. If you want to be a gladiator then join one of the threads that feature it.
Your character looks like he is coming on to her and it will likely cause her to just tell him to bug off and she will leave. You have no way of knowing at this point who she is or that she is a member of the Taipan.
The black haired dwarf was her contact. And he knew her because he is one of the top officers in the organisation. They watch people, have stealthed rogues in place to keep an eye out for potential recruits. He is an engineer, he watches people and stays out in the open as an engineer, he does not brag about his kills and neither will Amarlei.
The key here is like espionage, if you are a mole, set in place as an informant and gathering data, you want to be as unobstrusive as possible.
If you are a Master Assassin, you know who you are, you let very few if anyone know your true identity. If you are outed by someone, you would be hunted down, so no one knows who you are. My warlock is playing the part of the Master of the Taipan. But he is hooded and cloaked when he is meeting with his members. Only one knows who he really is, and that is his second in command. All the rest merely know of his shadowy form glimpsed or his voice behind a wall or curtain.
He uses many of his rogues to sit and wait out of sight to gather information. They send him their findings. He sends them gold. They are only recruited by junior members of the organisation, having never met him. There is a box at the bank in Booty Bay that is like a personal mailbox. Think of it like a bus station with private lockers.
Thusly, he will know what you are doing, he will receive a report on the death of the troll. So far, you just need to soften it up a bit, do not be so obviously a killer. Let me post the next part in Amarlei's contract. She will be assigned to kill someone. You will see how she does it.
Think of a way to be subtle about the kill, like a trap in the woods, or leading the mark off into the jungle and dispatching them with animals or something.
@Evara, Not a big problem. We can work around you. I wanted to point out, if you are using the wolf to track Amarlei. This might be big trouble for Amarlei. I can see he might be able to catch a whiff of a blood elf if you have had him tracking any Horde or some experience with using him to track a supect or maybe a lost person.
But he cannot speak and I am imagining there are other Sindorei who sneak into Stormwind. I like how you are portraying him as being sensitive to something. But she has not left anything substantial around as evidence besides the hair and I am sure all the handling it had with the gnome forensic team, its pretty much spoiled for use as a tracking aid.
Amarlei is going to be using some very sneaky means to try and get to Sylvia. But this time it will be a slow acting poison that will knock her out and put her in a coma. I am trying to inspire those who want into the Taipan to use more subtle methods.
