Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy, so we ask that you take the time to read through the forum Code of Conduct (http://us.battle.net/en/community/conduct) and guidelines (http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/15252595157) before posting. Important Reminders: Search The search function at the top of the World of Warcraft community site is extremely effective and robust. Before you create a new forum topic, please be use it to search for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the answer for which you are looking. Making a new thread on an existing subject can result in your thread being deleted or, if you continue to re-post the same content, the loss of your forum privileges for spamming. Rating The forum rating system can be used to promote positive discussion, demote unhelpful comments, and even report posts that violate the forum Code of Conduct.

Oct 5 [Guide] In-Game Roleplay -- The Basics Thank you all for your efforts and hard work, everyone! This guide would not be where it is today without your support and feedback, and I hope it can serve as a valuable resource for people to turn to for years to come! This guide, as stated above in the topic title, will be all about the basics of in-game roleplaying, and will be relatively lengthy. It will include examples for you to see, explanations for you to understand, and links to other very helpful threads and resources to help you learn about the joy of roleplaying. Also, since I do not consider myself the best of the best, I am completely open to criticism intended to correct or better the information provided here. Any suggestions for corrections, additions, or deletions are completely welcome, and preferred. After all, this guide is meant to be helpful and insightful when it comes to in-game roleplaying, not a bunch of drivel that doesn't help anyone or make sense. Even if you're skeptical about some piece of information, question me! I'll be happy to answer, and if I'm not available to respond someone else might be around to do so! Table of Contents I. Basic Roleplaying Terms II. Preparations for Roleplaying - 1. Character Development - 2. And The Things You Need to Know to Start III. Roleplaying Fights IV. Open World RP vs. Group RP V. Griefers and You VI. Using Online Resources for RP VII. Transitioning to Forum RP VIII. Helpful Links CompilationShandrís109 Oct 5
Aug 11 Forum RP: Types and Expectations ((Guide)) Hell Yeah! :D Thanks all, hope you enjoy this guide. Before I start. This is a very long guide, feel free to skip to the bits that are relevant to you. If you want to know how to start a Closed RP, go to that section. If you want to know about Expectations of Open RP, skip there. Also feel very free to offer constructive criticism, or criticism in general, every post is a bump :) This, as the title suggests is about Forum RP. If you wish for a Guide on In-game RP, I suggest: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/2016793577 The above guide is very easy to read, and a lot of the basics can even be strongly relevant to forum RP. Even if you don't plan to in-game RP, the above is an easy read and comes with a few strong links that relate to forum RP as well. Edit: Second reference: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1406722537?page=1 This is another written set of guidelines and rules, check them out for another reference if you like, it's definitely more compact than this and might give you a good summary. And lastly: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/3871117384?page=1 This is a brilliantly written ongoing statement and guide. It's not only personal, but comes from an experienced and helpful person. Types of Forum RPs This thread is an expression of my opinion. I am not stating fact, but I am hoping that I am vague and general enough for it to be true, even if skewed a little. I am writing this guide, so that people can understand what the different forum tags mean, how you can get into different types of RP, how you are expected to act in them, and how they work in general. First of all and most important: You are not expected to read this whole thing, it is considerably long and detailed and I probably should have condensed it. But, if you read anything, please read the second post, with Expectations and the Rules of RP, this is probably the most important part of this thread! Feel free to post criticism. Even if I disagree, I will post any valid arguments up on my first posts, for anyone else to read, so they can understand the mixed opinions that are present. This guide will also shape and form from structured opinion, I will edit as seems fit. At the start this might seem a little... not good... but with help from our community, it will grow better. I will be focusing on two main types of RP. Open, and Closed. However I will also delve into the variants of each, such as the Tavern RP, and the structured Closed RP. I will try and keep a vague sense, as it is not black and white, especially when getting into the structured aspect of things. Also, remember, I am not telling you how to do things; I am just trying to help. Each Topic will be separated by emphasized titles. At the end of each topic, there will be a short summary in italics. After the Table of Contents, there will be a summary of expectations, as it is likely the most important part of this thread. What this Guide will contain Expectations - Post 2 The "Rules' of RP - Post 2 Summary of RP Types. - Post 3 Open RPs General Feel -Post 3 How to get into one - Post 3 Expectations - Post 4 How to make one - Post 4 The Tavern Element - Post 4 Closed RPs General Feel - Post 5 How to get into one - Post 5 Expectations - Post 5 How to make one - Post 6 The Structured Element - Post 7 Quick Term Summary There are other, better places you can find these, but I will just go through the ones you will need to know here. OOC: Out of Character. Refers to any comment made from you as an Earthling, not from your character, as I am talking now, as opposed to... IC: In Character. Any comment made from your characters perspective. E.g.: Thurman took the blue silken wizards hat from his bed and placed it on top of his head. RP: Roleplay TM: Thread Master. The Person who creates a thread, this is the poster with the most control; role will vary depending on the RP type. OP: Opening Post. This refers to the first post in a thread by someone. The TM’s first post will start a thread, while the posters first post will introduce their character. Generally, the OP will be longer than the other posts, because you have far more to write about, and generally want to put more effort into it. Note Feel free to post criticism. Know that I want your opinion, and if you have your own guide, or bits of guide, feel free to give them to me, and I will add them. We are a community. The credit should go to all of us.Meep169 Aug 11
Sep 25, 2016 [FanFic Guide]: Building a Better Story! I thought I might as well toss up some guidelines that could give some new writers a path to follow. You can choose to follow what I say strictly, or just completely blow it off; doesn't much matter. It's your story, so be creative with it! I'm just here to try and help. -Table of Contents- I. Story Topics II. Creativity in Writing III. Writing Guidelines IV. Descriptive Limitations V. Hero’s Journey VI. Involving NPCs VII. Adding Flavor Lore VIII. After Publishing ---------------------- I. Story Topics Now, while this is very much your story and your creation, it does have to take place within the WoW universe (Blizzard's rules from the old Seat of Knowledge forum, not mine). People tend to shy away from stories that involve heavy lorebreaking without an explanation. This doesn't include things such as alternate dimensions, changes in the past, nightmares or dreams, etc, but rather blatant alterations that don't serve any purpose other than "I said so". However, so long as you make it obvious that your story is in Warcraft, you should be fine. II. Creativity in Writing Something to always keep in mind while writing your story, is that it is your creation and your imagination that is at work; not someone else's. If you want to involve a giant, undead, fel-corrupted dragon in Moonglade for your story about a teenager with a mechanical arm and a blade that can cut through anything... Have at it. It's your story so you write it however you see fit to capture your imagination and entertain others. III. Writing Guidelines People don’t like to read walls of texts, paragraphs filled with bad punctuation, wrong spelling or broken English, so if you want to hook your readers before they even start reading, break your story apart. Split them up into smaller paragraphs, use proper grammar and punctuation and if you don’t know how to spell a specific word, try using Google’s voice recognition on your phone or laptop to pronounce the word; Google should recognize it, and then you’ll know how to spell it. Trust me, splitting your story into paragraphs and using proper grammar goes a long way with a reader’s eye. IV. Descriptive Limitations While this is Warcraft, there are some descriptive limitations that could get your thread deleted if you break some of the rules. As you very well know, World of Warcraft is filled with blood, gore and torture, all of which can be within your story without a problem (usually). However, I wouldn't go about describing in great detail the victim of some heinous death. Gore can usually be described if you’re detailing an Abomination or Ghoul, but if you’re describing a character's death, keep it to a minimum. People are much more queasy reading about recently dead bodies than they are zombies, even if they're technically the same thing. There's a mental barrier there that separates the two and crossing that line can have more people clicking off of your story. Same goes for describing scenes of sexual intercourse, nudity, non-consensual sex, etc. If you want to share your Warcraft fantasy, there are sites for that, but this is not one of them. V. The Hero's Journey Any great story needs a hero, and any great hero needs a journey. In 1987, Joseph Campbell released a book titled "The Hero's Journey", and it showed people how almost every hero, whether it be Gilgamesh of ancient Mesopotamia over 4,000 years ago, or the well-known Superman and even Jesus Christ, all share shockingly similar traits. According to Joseph Campbell, they all follow a guideline of a story element; and for good reasons. People love it. Remember, you do not have to follow the Hero’s Journey to make a good story, but here's a breakdown of the Hero's Journey in a simplified version: Unusual Birth Whether it’s the common virgin birth story or the death of the character's parents, anything unusual that happens at birth or at a young age can fit right in here. Call to Adventure This usually includes a messenger of some sort or a way of the hero being requested for aid in a mission, usually in a faraway land. Refusal of the Call The hero tends to refuse the call to adventure at first, but is then forced to go, convinced to, or chooses to go. Meeting the Mentor It could be a teacher, father, trainer, or even a sibling, but this area usually includes training or preparation for the adventure. Crossing the First Threshold Whether it’s fighting a dragon, tackling a giant, solving a riddle, saving the town or rescuing Timmy from a well, this is the first trial that has to be conquered to achieve the goal.Canniibal21 Sep 25, 2016
May 19 Roleplaying Question Collective Now, I've been on these forums a while. It never fails that many questions get asked over and over and over. I'm hoping to create some kind of resource for people to come to to get their questions answered. They'll include a question(In no particular order), with a general consensus of the forums/sources as to what the answer of that question is, and a link if applicable to where discussion on that topic was held. I'll update for better threads or different opinions should things change. I'm also open to suggestions or links, so post them if you have them. ERPing and how to handle it should you see it. -- Warn them(politely), report them, ignore them if they continue. -- Thread: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1827258606 Using the Vial of the Sands to RP a Dragon. -- It's generally frowned upon, can be proven OoCly and ICly to not work, but if you can find an accepting group and you do it well, it can work. Don't expect wide acceptance. -- Thread: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1827308891 Languages, Translations, and where to find them. -- While it's possible lorewise for characters to learn other languages, you have to turn to an addon to allow you to speak them in RP. -- Thread: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1869557258 "Breaking" and "Bending" Lore. -- Many many people frown upon it, but there is a small community that supports it. Try to find them, don't expect people to accept you or your story/character. Most prefer to RP WoW in WoW. -- Thread: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1827668013?page=1 Death, Healing, and mechanics. -- There are many ways to handle death and healing in World of Warcraft. One of the more accepted ways is that Death is final. You can also be ressurected, but you can't cheapen Death by making it easy. -- Thread(s): http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1658711113 , http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1020822138 Races that don't exist in WoW, in WoW. -- Much like breaking or bending lore to allow things that should be, roleplaying a race that doesn't normally exist(Dark Elves, other fantasy races) is generally frowned upon. You can find those that accept it but don't expect wide acceptance. -- Thread: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1827305646 Vampires in WoW -- Classical vampires do not actually exist in WoW. There are vampiric creatures, there are also vampiric demons or other creations, but a Vampire like you would see in Dracula does not exist. -- Thread(s): http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1827308694 , http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1126994716 Love in World of Warcraft -- Love can strike anyone at any time. However, you must take into consideration ICly and OoCly genetics, cultural differences, age discrepancies, and physiology. -- Thread(s): http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1827258515 , http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1083609740 Why Night Elves look different from Blood Elves, and High Elves. -- Usage of Arcane magic drove the Highborne, Blood Elves, and High Elves from the rest of Night Elven culture. Arcane magic altered their culture and outlooks. High Elves and Blood Elves look differently from Night Elves because they were severed from the Well of Eternity. -- Wiki: http://www.wowpedia.org/High_Elves ; Section: Foundation of Quel'Thalas. -- Thread: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1827305635 Roleplaying a race that you aren't. -- It takes suspension of disbelief, use of addons, and ingame items to pull something like this off, but it is possible. There's limits, but many options are within reach. -- Thread: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1764408452 Dealing with "bad" RP. -- General consensus is that if you see someone RPing "wrong", -politely- inform them, in whispers, that they may want to rethink how they are RPing. Don't push them, but give them a gentle nudge to these forums or other Lore sites. -- Thread: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1083359337 Dealing with godmoders. -- Much like "bad" rp, you can politely inform them that what they're doing may not be entirely correct. Refer them somewhere that they can use to help themselves out. Or you can simply ignore them if they don't listen to reason. -- Thread: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1827524850 Are Highborne Immortal? -- Highborne, like normal Night Elves, are no longer immortal. They used to be, but were sustained by demons and other unsavory magics instead of being naturally immortal. -- Thread: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1827304290 Roleplaying as a Dragon. -- Roleplaying as a Dragon is a touchy topic. Many will tell you to simply "DIAF". However, it is possible, and can be done. You must to a lot of research and be ready to take a lot of heat. I don't encourage or down it, it's an individual thing. -- Thread: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1756043459Slywyn210 May 19

3m The War of Thorns (Open/RP Thread) OK, it may be a bit early to start something like this, but with the pre-patch hitting this Tuesday, it's good a time as any. The main setting is Darkshore, but feel free to place your story anywhere, provided it takes part during this eponymous war. Open to Horde and Alliance. Start Lor’danel had not seen this much activity in years. At least that was Baldris Somerveil’s thoughts. The relatively small town had been turned inside out, much of the normal inhabitants had been evacuated to Darnassus, leaving behind only a few to help deal with various duties. Right now, the army ruled this town. Glaive throwers lined up and down the north-western shore. Four different lines in various criss-cross placements. Dwarven tanks lined up along the forest, gnome engineer swarming around them, checking every spot again and again. Sentinels armed with bows and war-glaives patrolled every street, and soldiers from Stormwind were being ported in through mage portals on the Eastern Dock. Baldris had seen General Feathermoon walking through the streets, barking orders at various members of her command staff, and a peculiar Night Elf he took to be Archdruid Stormrage was seen heading south into the forest with a group of druids not two days ago. He wandered through the streets of the small town, passing by a large group of druids and mages (There was a surprising combination) talking. “It won’t work. Any traps we set will be picked up by the blood elf mages.” A mage said. A Night Elf druid spoke up. “Perhaps, but don’t forget that this whole region is soaked in druidic magic. If we can somehow “wrap” the mage traps in druidic magic then maybe….” Baldris passed on without listening to the end of the conversation. The inns and general goods stores were still open. Some off-duty soldiers were in an Inn, having a drink, and various adventurers, some colorful, some less so, gathered in any area not held by a soldier. They also spread throughout the streets. Some were walking with the soldiers, others heading out into the forest, looking for anything in Horde colors that might have gotten through whatever defenses Archdruid Stormrage had set up. He wasn’t sure about this war. He wasn’t surprised it had happened really, as he always knew another war like this would happen. He knew that a good deal of the Silver Hand knights had opted out of taking part in this war, but he had not. Perhaps it was the Horde Warchief, perhaps it was because he knew who WOULD be taking part in it. He was off duty for now, having finished a 4-hour patrol of the forest not too long ago. He found himself standing in front of an inn. He looked inside, and smiled slightly. Baldris went over to a table at the side, and found who he was looking for. “Brother.” Baldris said.Baldris23 3m
5m Every few years on a Tuesday. Here I am, Sitting in a local café within Dalaran, I hear talks of angry mobs within Stormwind and Orgrimmar (GD Forums) over policy changes from its leadership (BfA changes). Pouring some of the finest Whiskey imported from Pandaria. I sit there and think that every few years these policy changes within the governments really cause uproar. “it’s like clockwork.” I mumble. “Roughly every 2 years same things happen and same arguments being made.” Taking a deep swig of my drink it makes me wonders”….why a Tuesday…it’s always on a Tuesday. Eh, just means a day to avoid the major cities for a while.” Taking another sip of my drink. "well, some of the arguments I hear are not bad ones at all...just... it feels the same." I say Soon after I hear a gnome stomping by with a goblin right next to him. "my interface is ruined!!!" the gnome screams. "Why not use an additional module to replace the interface with one you like." squeeks goblin. "I shouldn't have to!!" the gnome continues to rage. "adding an additional module will just consume resources!!!" I hear as they are walking by. I ignore the rest of the conversation as they are walking further and further away. Finishing my drink I end up setting up a hearthstone on the cafe table for all who are in the mood to play… along with a second glass to share my whiskey with. ".... I wonder what my chances are to score with a Orc woman."Berusein0 5m

2h The Impossible Mission (Closed IC) Quite some time has passed since the incident in Acherus the Ebon Hold. There had still been no leads on the individual responsible for the deaths of Ghosar and the other knights. Once the world was wounded and the Alliance and Horde began racing after the world’s very essence the investigation seemed to be forgotten. Sandara however was determined to see her vow fulfilled and those responsible for the deaths of eleven knight’s be brought to justice. Meanwhile Bryah Starstrider was being summoned by her captain for a new assignment. Her captain sat behind her desk writing down a letter as Bryah entered. “Captain.” She said with a salute. Her captain didn’t look up from her work for a long minute. It almost got to the point where Bryah considered saying it again. “Starstrider.” The captain said abruptly. Her eyes flicked up to the other woman before back to her letter. “You’re late. Again. Don’t give me your excuses, I honestly do not care. However…” She said with a sigh as she folded the letter and poured wax on it to seal before pressing the wax. “I have an assignment that recently came across my desk. One I do not like at all. Do you know about the Specter Cartel?” She asked inquisitively. Bryah replied almost immediately, ignoring the first comments from the captain. In her own mind she was on time. Her current captain was far too strict for her own liking. “I have had dealings with them before. I’m confident they are responsible for a number of crimes against Silvermoon.” She said with disappointment in her voice. “Good to know you are acquainted with them. Some of our intelligence suggests that they recently started collecting and selling Azerite on the black market. The substance has incredible potential and we need to shut down anyone who does not exclusively deal with the horde. So you’re new assignment is one that will be beyond dangerous, but I am confident that you can accomplish it. You are to infiltrate the Cartel.”Distrò31 2h
2h "Quarantine" (Rp-thread Signups/OOC!) A rumor spreads of mysterious things happening in gilneas, one that use to be a war-zone, but now has became a quarantined area, preventing both alliance and horde from entering, but one amongst the gossip of rumors, is that there is a elderly human seeking to find crystals that have fallen from the skies, from the meteors that landed in Gilneas. They say in these rumors, that to meet this man, and his grandson, you must find a mage in Dalaran, A human mage that spends his times at the inn, he will be wearing a golden ring with a ruby gem socket into the metal. They also say that the ruby somehow manage to become in a rose shape in a natural cause, or unnatural magical use of alterations, but they all tell you that's not the point. They say to find this man, and he will guide you, but there is a final warning, "To seek this place, you will be rich, if you survive with your sanity and life intacted that is." But mysterious as it is, the rumors have more sense of truth, than a liars tongue, but they say none have returned, but they do not know if they have perished or merely grown plentiful with coin and trade. _______ WELCOME to Quarantine, this is a rp thread where you have to survive what has happened in the now dark streets of gilneas, but each encounter has a chance of causing more than basic issues. be wary of who you trust and aid.

2h Why you made them? I'm actually genuinely curious. When I say this, I mean why did you make your character the way that they were? Was it because you loved the lore of certain person or place? Or just how you like to go about things? It like why I made this pandaren then way he is. About 95% of all pandaren RPers are the exact same thing: A monk, neutral, or a combination of the two, when the race has so many options when it comes to their story and how they operate. I wanted this guy to stick out from the rest, even if it was only a small way. Well, that's my reason anyway. How about you?Jiawn5 2h
3h New Classes for wow Hello everyone, i have been thinking for all theses years playing wow, about all classes we could get in a future that would be part of the lore and playables, so here we go: 1.- Bard,with two aspects Peace Speech for healing and War Speech for Ranged DPS. 2.- Gunner, with two aspects Heavy weapons for a RDPS with slow movement and a big cannon more AOE purpous and Two handed weapons a RDPS with two small guns and high mobility. 3.- Tinker, would be divides into tree aspects Tank/RDPS/Healer with a mech for each type like a giant mecha for tanking, an aracno mecanical bombardier and a flying type robot for healing from the air throwing healing chemicals or sort of, would be engineer/Bombardier/Chemistry. 4.- Necromancer divided by healing/Tank/RDPS like Blood/Flesh/Bones Blood would steal the vital force (Blood) of the enemy transforming it into healing using some explosive copses that run into the enemy healing allies and damaging foes, and creating some blood pillars at ranged positión to heal in aoe; Flesh would tank with a giant amorphous homunculus that absobe tons of damage and using corpses as fuel; Bones would create a lot of corpses running around throwing its bones to the enemy and using bones traps to cc; This class would have a caravan type vehicle that is used to carry all corpses. jus saying. so, if you have any comments i would like to know.Berzarker4 3h
3h Money and Gold - How much is rich? Question on the title. How much money/gold you need to have so you would be considered rich in Azeroth? Is there a specific amount or general values? Also, how much gold is a lot and how much is not much? If I give 10 gold to someone begging for money, would that be a lot or just some small salary? And about salaries, is there anything stating how much adventurers, soldiers or heroes make with gold per month or year?Aranass8 3h
4h Ered’Kiel’s Desolation (OOC Temp closed) This is the ooc thread for the villain rp between Salkeen, his minions, masters Jericha and other denizens. As of right now the thread will probably not be receiving newcomers as the villains gotta settle in a cause some destruction before heroes can rise to the call to push them out.Salkeen306 4h
4h Ered’Kiel’s Desolation (IC Temp closed) Salkeen thrust his hands outward as he peaked the containment of his fel energy! Varicar had barely entered the room with a series of pink vials before the souls inside were pulled from them and thrown into the heaving fel magic coming from Salkeen. He directed the swirling ball of death and fel towards Jericha’s disembodied soul surrounding her in the hell of torment! Slowly the souls and fel seemed to harden and create a body, simple forms were made first, the skeleton, the muscles and sinew spread like webs over the burning corpse! Lastly the skin slowly crept along the body giving life to Jericha’s soul beneath... Even as the body seemed to come to a rest the skin still seemed to move and creep on its own... “Do you hear them Jericha?” Salkeen gave a wicked smile as he asked the question. “If you listen closely you can hear all the souls I trapped in the new body of yours... They cry for freedom and pain of death... Everytime you would die, one will take your place, now you have a body as strong as your other spirits....” Salkeen stepped back to let Jericha try to get up, being reborn wasn’t exactly a fun experience...Salkeen320 4h

6h Share your backstory. Every toon has a story. Take this warrior as an example. Former bloodelf. Took up a farming job in the valley of the four winds because the size of the produce astonished him . He set down a plot where he was told not to. Grew some turnips in said plot that absorbed some sha energy. When he ate one he became tainted with the void. This turned him into his current form. Now he absolutely hates turnips. Light and shadpw save you if you invite him to dinner and serve turnips in any of it. The result would end with his claymore in your table.Crotoan45 6h

21h Legionstrike: Alpha (OOC) Saehri, I've tapped you and your daughter for an important mission on Argus. Far out in a quadrant of the planet with no business having any signs of life, there has been an unnatural amount of activity. With the campaign on Argus drawing on nearly every resource we have I've opted for a small strike team to go investigate this anomaly and deal with any threat it may pose to the campaign proper. To that end I've included a list of talented individuals, all of whom have already accepted a role in this team, as well as their location. Additionally I'm leaving the final spot open to your discretion, I trust you won’t have any difficulty getting in contact. The stones I've included have been attuned to the rendezvous and from there Vahrra has the location of a forward camp you can operate out of. Good Luck, Khadgar ******************************* Welcome to Legionstrike: Alpha! This is a companion thread to Legionstrike: Genesis, this team will have it's own mission parallel to the Genesis team with the goal being to have both threads eventually converge on a single pair of villains. I plan on keeping this as an open thread (as Genesis is) but even so I'd like there to be a few guidelines. 1) Even though this is an open thread, I'd ask all people who plan on joining to put up a character sheet so the rest of the thread can have something quick to read about what your character is like. 2) I'd ask that you bring no more than two characters into this thread 3) As this is an open thread you may come and go as you please. HOWEVER, if you must leave I'd ask that as a courtesy to others you write an exit post giving a reason so that the RP isn't stalled. If you go more than two weeks without posting I will reserve the right to write the character out of the RP (while leaving a bit of wiggle room for them to return.) 4) As much as I'd love to RP with Void Elves this story takes place before the end of the Legion and thus none of the elves in Telogrus are actually Void Elves yet, so I'd ask you to refrain from posting on such. For a character sheet please follow the below: Name: Race: Gender: Relative Age: Class or Profession: Speciality: Notable equipment or abilities: Brief Summary:Saehri394 21h
22h Worst roleplaying experience you've had? It could be anything. Maybe an awful guild event, or when someone emoted that they killed your character without letting you emote back. I'm curious on what other's have to share! I'll use one of my own as an example. Around the time of the Legion reveal, I was in a Mercenary-themed roleplaying guild. The Guild wasn't so bad, the events were fun, but they were mostly just wandering Orgrimmar and confronting certain individuals. I remember taking a one-month break from the game and returned to find that I was still apart of the Guild, and nothing had changed. I remember my last ever event after my break, and it was pretty bad. The Guild Master grouped everyone up and informed them about future events before emoting that he'd take out a gun and shoot my character dead. I wouldn't take it too seriously until he kept going on with the idea that my character was dead on the floor, emoting that he'd kick my body and spit on it. The part that really ruined my night was that everyone was going along with it. Everyone assumed that I was okay with my character just being killed off. When I whispered the Guild Master about it, we'd argue for a bit before he kicked me from the Guild and put me in ignore. That goes down as my worst experience roleplaying ever.Thallious26 22h
1d Smiling Skull Tavern (Open RP) Somewhere in Tirisfal Glades in a secluded forest outside of Brill there was a tavern. Since it was so close to a Horde settlement Alliance peoples had to be careful not to get killed by Death Guards yet they were allowed if they could make their way there. Horde, mostly Forsaken, frequented this bar. The outside of the bar had one entrance that one could see from the front, a small roof over said entrance in case it was raining or snowing while the building itself was of modest size and somewhat disrepair. A sign hung from a post that showed a female skull smiling mysteriously. Inside the bar there was a Forsaken bartender with long hair with thin ragged strands that she still tries to take care of, green skin and wore a dress tied in the middle by a bow. Her employee Lizitte Shadowyrose scurried around passing out trays of foods and drinks to the people frequenting the bar. There seemed to be a grizzled Forsaken warrior, a dainty female orc, one rather crafty gnome dressed in all black and a paladin woman who hid her face and body with a fully covering set of armor. The bar was at the front of the room and had stools to sit on. Behind the bar was the bartender mixing up drinks or pouring them straight with ice or not. The rules of the bar were posted in a clearly visible place: ...Ravasha167 1d
1d Rassi's Krokul Roleplay Guide! (First one!) NOTE: This is a GUIDE. You do not have to play your Krokul to this guide. This is simply a reference for those who are just getting into it! Recommendations and additions are welcome in the comments! 1: History Hailing from Argus, the Krokul are one of the three subraces that the Eredar became (The other two being Draenei/Man'ari). They came about when Argus was sundered by the Legion and bathed those who did not escape the planet in fel energy. The survivors became the Krokul. For over 25,000 years, they spent their time running from the Legion, being fuel/slaves for the Legion and its machines or spent time trying to fight off the Void's influence with limited success. Though without a formal leader, many in Krokun see Hatuun as their leader for his strength and courage in his sacrifice. Somehow, you have gotten to Azeroth at a time where war is on the horizon and both factions are unease towards you. You must prove yourself to be a worthy ally and a dangerous foe. For the Glory of Argus! 2: Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads. The biggest question of a Krokul roleplayer: How the heck did you get here? There are many ways of course, but first, we gotta analyze them. 1) Vindicaar. The Krokul do indeed hold a heavy spite towards the Light, seeing it as something equally as bad as the Legion or something that abandoned them in their time of need. This same spite extends to Prophet Velen for his lack of action during the Legion's invasion. However, with Argus being destroyed, you may have no other choice but to either offer yourself as an ambassador for the Argussian Reach, or become a stowaway. This may change how you see the other races later on given the time you may be spending with them. 2) Self made ship. Thanks to Legion ships falling down and the crash of the Xenedar, you (alone or with a group of other Krokul) could have constructed a little makeshift ship that had just enough to get you to Azeroth. You may have had a previous love for engineering before the Argussian Sundering and thus, wanted to use your talents to escape, rather than rely on the Light to save you. (This story idea is best if your character stayed mostly in Mac'aree, given the spare tech and buildings laying around). 3) Portal! This is the easiest and cheapest way to do this and would require a lot of hands and time. Unless you have an rp group that is willing to vouch for having made this portal, I do not recommend taking this route if you want to be story heavy. 3: This is a fertile land and we shall thrive here. We will rule over all this land and we shall call it...this land. Congrats! You've made it to Azeroth! Thank goodness it's not TOTALLY messed up like Argus! But er...how do we feel about these races? Well, thankfully most of this will be simple and will depend on the routes you took to get here ya hecking alien space goat!Khilraase8 1d
1d ((OOC)) Roleplay Addons, 8.0, and You The 8.0 prepatch is almost here, and there are some major changes to roleplay profile addons that everyone needs to be aware of. So please read this, and pass along the information to those you know that don't read the forums. First and foremost: All roleplay profile addons need to be updated for 8.0. New addons will not interact with old addons, and old addons will not work properly in 8.0. MyRolePlay, TotalRP3, and XRP will all have releases ready for 8.0 going live. I'll update this post with direct links to the official 8.0 releases as they become available. Releases for 8.0 will only work on 8.0. Do not use them with 7.3. - MyRolePlay: v8.0.1.415: https://wow.curseforge.com/projects/my-role-play/files/2584064 - Total RP 3: v1.4.1: https://wow.curseforge.com/projects/total-rp-3/files/2584719 - XRP: v1.8.2: https://github.com/Itarater/XRP/releases/download/v1.8.2/XRP-1.8.2.zip Beyond this update, be aware that all roleplay profile contents will be logged and can be reported to Blizzard for abuse. An issue arose within the past year or so where some individuals were extensively using roleplay profiles to harass others on an ongoing basis, or to publish someone else's personal details. As such, implementing the reporting capability became a high priority for profile addons, and it has been done in time for 8.0 prepatch launch. This means you should clean up your profiles now. The guidelines on acceptability are roughly what you'd see in public chat channels. If you wouldn't say it in /say, don't put it in your profile. These reports are all reviewed exclusively by Blizzard -- addon authors have no power or influence whatsoever, so please don't hurl abuse at any of them if your profile is ever reported. That said, I ask that everyone exercise common courtesy when it comes to reporting. Don't abuse the report system -- abuse of the report system to harass someone can result in actions against your account, instead of the person being reported. Furthermore, please use your judgement when it comes to reporting -- try to reserve reports for profiles that incite hatred or violence, that harass and target individuals, or that publish personal or harmful details on others. These sorts of profiles, while few and far between in a community like this, are serious enough problems that this needed to be done. Finally, there may very well be bugs. Please keep an eye out for updates to your roleplay profile addon of choice over the coming days and weeks. If you encounter behaviour you suspect is a bug, please report it to your addon's author, preferably on the project's bug/issue tracker. - MyRolePlay: https://github.com/Ellypse/MyRolePlay/issues - Total RP 3: https://github.com/Ellypse/Total-RP-3/issues - XRP: https://github.com/Itarater/XRP/issues If you're comfortable with it, please consider running the following command in your WoW game to enable Lua errors: /console scriptErrors 1 Run the same command with 0 replacing 1 to disable Lua errors. Enabling Lua errors may help find any bugs that need to be fixed, which would be greatly appreciated. While these addons have been extensively tested on beta and PTR, nothing compares to the chaos that is live servers. Thank you.Itarater0 1d
1d Cult of the Black Scales [OOC] I am unsure what I want to do with this concept. Write a character story or use it as a forum RP. I thought, "Well, might as well see if there is any interest." I wont be starting it until the Vault of the Dead is over with, so there will be some time still depending on how fast we finish the final phase of the thread. I will be a little strict regarding sign ups, due to some chaos that has been happening in other threads lately. I love creativity, so I don't like being strict. But I worry that if I am not, things could get out of hand. Going to post the rules in case they turn people away :S Rules: ~ I enjoy a well written character as much as the next person, and even mounts can be written into characters and their stories... but please. No mounts over characters. If your griffon dive bombs a threat, that is one thing, but they shouldn't be able to count as posts by themselves. Remember, when you do that, it is like slipping in another character without the thread master's permission. Ask first. Please. ~ If I have the bad guys spying on you, you are free to notice being spied on, but don't drop on their space without consulting me in the OOC first. Some mooks? Yeah it would be reasonable to spot/sense/smell them. But I would like to be able to make the call if you actually find and engage. ~ Try to keep the thread paced. If you feel something needs an immediate post, fine; but try to avoid posting after every other person. Give people a chance to get their own interactions in. It shouldn't be YOU ME YOU PERSON YOU FROG YOU DAISY. ~ Proper punctuation and grammar is nice. Doesn't have to be perfect, just readable. ~ Posts should be more than a one liner, that goes without saying here really. Why are you on the forums if you want to do 1 sentence posts? Add some character expressions, thoughts, something. Doesn't have to be a fluff filled book, but have more than one line. ~ Don't stall the thread out. Kersia is cold. She will go one without you and not look back. She doesn't feel the need to baby you, answer your every whim and question. She will get bored and move on. One of her best friends is missing. ~ This thread is meant to have a plot and progression. Side arcs between characters are fine, as long as they don't stall out the thread or begin to derail it. ~ I trust you to write combat fairly. If I feel you are going a little over the top, I with politely let you know if the OOC. Even mooks make hits at times. They are not StormTroopers and you are not Jedi. ~ The biggest of the bad here is mine. I will kill him. I will not write to kill your characters, that will be your own choice. However, there will be spots where you may need to do what Kersia says, or you will fall into a large pool of lava. I would advise listening to Kersia. Or any of my other characters. You don't have to, but Kersia certainly wont be fighting for you to reason with her. She says hop on, you say nope, she says okay then and leaves you to fall to your death. ~ And obviously no overpowered/overbearing characters. Mooks are hack and slash friendly; but I will have named combatants and they will not be. Kill a nameless dragon using physics to behead it? Sure. Kill Vanexia that way? No. ~ No controlling characters that aren't yours. I'll let you know in the OOC if you can free for all a current mass of mooks, I'll typically give names to the bad guys I wish to directly control for combat. But don't assume, with my bad guys, or with the characters of others. ----- Sign Up Form: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/20744714312?page=2#36 ----- List of Approved Characters with Links to Their Sign Up: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/20744714312?page=1#4 ----- Like I said, this is mostly an interest check. I am one for bending the rules, and am open to suggestions. If you feel like I am being too strict, just say so. If you would be interested, but are worried I may inhibit your character or something because of these rules, let me know. I am actually friendly and easy to get along with, I just don't want my thread to derail or get flooded. I will be having Kersia, Vynianyx, and Sylstyx in the thread mainly. Mortre will be there as well, but wont be with good guys till towards the middle/end. Tolbyas will be entering towards the end. Depending on how the story goes. Xinaria and Etzul could make appearances as well. Sterixia will be tagging along. Kersia and Mortre are the stars of this show though. 15 characters tops, 1 per personMortre411 1d
1d Lightforged and Pandaren Hey there amazing RPers! Pandaria is my all time favorite expansion and I'm looking to mix that in with my new LFD main. Just looking for some ideas on common ground the two races could find so I can role-play a bit better. I'm thinking that after arriving on Azeroth my lightforged went to explore the planet and decided to go see Pandaria and loved it there. Any insight is welcome!Kavanii0 1d
1d Cult of the Black Scales [IC] Please see the sign up thread for rules and to sign up. Sign ups are still open for interested parties. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/20744714312 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mortre paced in the depths of her caverns. “It just doesn’t make sense.” She grumbled. The contract, the death knight hunt, the stalking. What was going on? The worgen felt like she was missing a piece, a crucial piece, to this puzzle. She had almost worn a path into the stone of the cavern floor. Sterixia entered the cavern. As she did, her form began to shift. It went temporarily incorporeal as she twisted into the form of an elf like creature. Sterixia still hadn’t mastered the ability, as the elf took form it looked like a strange, alien creature. Her skin was leathery and pink, with patches of black silk like scales dotting the surface. Her hair was not hair, yet a long, piece of leathery cartilage that she could somewhat move. Her ears were indented in a way that they almost looked like dragon wings. Off of each corner of her jaw was a small tentacle. Sterixia’s form held no clothing, rather an elegant pattern of black silk scales and membrane. As she came out of the incorporeal state, she smiled at Mortre. Mortre regarded the netherdrake with a slight grin herself. “Getting better. I suppose you may look normal someday.” She chuckled to herself and resumed her pacing. Sterixia sat on a nearby stone and observed. “Sterixia… I just don’t know.” Mortre sighed. “I know someone is out for me… but who. Something seems so familiar, yet so foreign.” She paused and regarded the pondering netherdrake with softened eyes. Sterixia simply shook her head, having no idea herself. The muted woman stood and approached Mortre. She wrapped her arms around the worgen in a hug. Mortre’s face reflected a look of startled amusement, before she ran a clawed hand down Sterixia’s head. “Listen, if anything happens; go to Kersia. I am sure she will keep you safe.” Sterixia pushed away from Mortre and looked at her confused. It was uncharacteristic of her to be so… warm. Whatever had been going on, it bothered the dark woman deeply, and that troubled Sterixia. Mortre was always so confident, so decisive. And here she was. Deeply troubled. Sterixia felt a bubbling worry fill her body. “Well,” Mortre sighed. “You should go get something for food. Try to stay away from settlements okay?” Mortre grinned at her. Sterixia nodded and began to leave the chamber when something struck her. The world around her began to fade to black. She saw chains spring up from the stones, wrapping around Mortre. And then there was only darkness. Mortre watched with horror as something flew from the corner of the cavern and struck Sterixia. “Who’s there!?” she shouted. Chains sprung from the stones, binding her body in place. I don’t understand!? I sensed no one! Has the earth betrayed me!? Mortre looked wildly around the room. Laughter echoed down the tunnels and into the cavern. A figure took form, rising through what looked like liquid stone. He was human in appearance, garbed in what appeared to be formal attire. He didn’t look much older than eighteen, but he appeared sickly and ill. Dark circles could be seen under his eyes. He skin was bronzed in color, and his eyes were golden with elongated pupils. His hair was black and slicked back. He chuckled and shook his head. “Finally found you, after all this time.” His voice was dark and operatic. “Who are you!? What have you done with Sterixia!?” Mortre pulled against the chains, her face contorted into a snarl. He took a few steps towards her. “Oh my, you don’t recognize me? It hasn’t been that long… mother.” Mortre’s eyes grew wide. All the pieces snapped in place. “V-vinarion? You are alive? How?” “Well,” Vinarion walked around her, speaking with a slow and deliberate tone. “After you abandoned us, after father’s death, I took leadership. I lead us all to safety… to livelihood. I created a safe haven! And now… we want you!” A half elf female, garbed in black leather; with the same skin tone, eye color, and hair color as Vinarion, appeared behind Mortre. “Sorry, Mother.” She whispered softly into Mortre’s ear as she stuck a needle into Mortre’s flesh. “Van… exia? You are alive… too?” Mortre felt the world spin around her as she fell to her knees. Vanexia was there, standing above her. Next to her was another high elf, his hair long and loose. He stood with a grin plastered on his face, revealing the jagged teeth that filled his mouth. He leaned against a great scythe as he watched Mortre on the ground. Mortre looked between the three, the borders of her vision blackening. “Vanzer… you too? You all… are-“ The world faded out of view, as Mortre fell into a deep slumber.Mortre428 1d
1d Battle of Keel Harbor You see a man up on the staircase of the cathedral, laden in old armor, dirtied by mud and soot. He wears a tabbard of brown and gold, simple in design and style. You overhear his speech; "Over the course of several months, we have come to make this place, home. With the cold mists blowing up from the great seas below, and the heavy rain pouring down on our laboring backs, we have sought to claim this landscape, and make it into something, once more. We have been quiet, of no contentions since our landing and founding. Making trade with dwarves from Ironforge for iron and steel, planting crops and trees, so we may be able to feed our families. But, all this may change, and this is why we call out to you for help. Our livelihoods and families are at stake, as a group has claimed our land that is legally and rightfully ours, threatening Rape, Murder, Trespassing, and Pillaging if we do not kneel to their banner. We are calling upon you, brave men and women of the Alliance. The help in our banishment of this threat. To make Keel Harbor safe from those who threaten us." This is an In Character pvp event in which we, The Keel Collective, will be hosting Sunday the 22nd of July, at 8:00pm pst, server time, Wyrmrest Accord in Keel Harbor. We are calling for guilds loyal to the Alliance or loyal to coin, to come and heed our call. Join our ranks, or join as an ally, and together, we will make Keel Harbor, and Gilneas, great once more.

1d Dark Irons and the Light Are Dark Iron dwarves wary of the Light and does it have negative effects on them if wielded (or if they're healed via Light, will it cause them extreme discomfort)? Also, if a Dark Iron (or anyone) were experimented on with fel magics, would the Light hurt? One of my characters had some really nasty burns caused by fel as a cult tried to attach (and fail) dragon scales onto his body. Would such scars burn near enough Light?Danession9 1d
1d Legionstrike: Genesis (OOC) Please note that the main thread is now open to all and is no longer closed/restricted to sign ups. This space can still be used for OOC discussion for the main thread. Hello! So ever since doing the first bits of Legionfall, where subversive agents of the Legion are again mentioned (they crop up now and again during the various class storylines), I've wanted to do something like this. Essentially, my thoughts are that the forces of Azeroth would create a sort of strike team to respond to these threats. Taking missions that would be too delicate for an army, but just right for a group of specialists. Enter Legionstrike. I'm hoping to make various threads different missions, with each one following a storyline to the conclusion of the set goal. Although the original thread included roleplaying out a trial for approval into the team, we'll be skipping past that in this incarnation. Of course, these can be talked about during character development segments during downtime between phases of missions (sitting around the fire after making camp, etc.). Please keep in mind general good rules for roleplay when posting: respect posts that came before yours if they somehow alter shared content and aren't unreasonable, use spellcheck, no one/two-liner responses, no god-moding. I'm also adding the additional rule of at least one post every 5 days, unless prior notice is given. I believe that's reasonable, and the old thread sort of fell apart because people just stopped posting. So if you cannot commit to that, I appreciate the interest but we'll be moving at a faster pace. We already have a demon hunter, magical ghost and feral druid from the our previous incarnation, and I will post my character based on what I think will balance the team after apps are accepted. Thanks, and I hope to stir up enough interest to get this off the ground!

1d Army of the Light forced-births? So, considering that the Army of the Light has been fighting demons for millennia and their numbers would be continually depleted, do you think that a military mandate would be pushed through to order the females to give birth to newer generations? It would be the only reliable way to keep their numbers high enough to sustain millennia of combat (short of enough females zealous enough in the cause to allow their bodies to be used this way). What are y'alls thoughts?Illìana19 1d
1d Shadows of Sholazar (( IC -- Closed RP )) Those accepted would have each received a plain envelope stamped with a blue wax seal, bearing the insignia of a trident imposed upon a sun. Inside would be a neatly written letter stating the following: To whom it may concern: Greetings. I hope this letter finds you in good health. Your offer of assistance is accepted, and much appreciated. I am currently camped near Lake Kum'uya, a few miles up the road from Warsong Hold and Valiance Keep. I shouldn't be too hard to find, since I'm within sight of the main road—look for a banner bearing the same insignia as the seal stamped in the wax. Scrawled at the bottom of the letter is a rather messy signature-- Morician Blackborne --------------------- The early morning sun shown down upon the tundra plains; a chill breeze dampening what little warmth little warmth it struggled to provide. Northrend was a cold land—a harsh land—and while the short summer season might seem to offer some hope of respite rarely a day went by without some reminder of the unforgiving climate. The cold itself, however, did not seem to disturb the lone figure camped out on the plains, nor the great warhorse accompanying him. The offerings of his camp were certainly meager—a small ash-covered circle of stones indicating where a campfire once was and a small patch of flattened ground cover where a bedroll had once been. Planted firmly in the dirt nearby was a black war banner emblazoned with the white outline of a trident imposed upon a sun. Morician himself sat quietly on a rock nearby, studying a handful of letters with a thoughtful frown. As was usually the case, he was dressed in full plate armor save for the helmet, which hung securely from the back of his charger's saddle. The plate itself appeared to be forged from elementium rather than saronite, with hints of orcish styling, and what appeared to be a paladin's libram case hanging at his side. Completing the ensemble was a heavy, fur-trimmed cloak draped about his shoulders, and a tabard matching the war banner's colors covering his chest. Though he occasionally checked his surroundings, Morician did not seem to be scanning for enemies as much as he seemed to be waiting for someone. Or in this case, several someones. Just cool your heels...they'll be here soon enough, he thought to himself, standing up to stretch his legs for what had to have been the twentieth time that morning. While the clear blue sky indicated the weather would be cooperative for the trip to Sholazar, he couldn't help but feel a slight sense of unease about the mission. He hadn't been able to glean much information from the hunters he had spoken with at the inn in Valaince Keep, and what little information he did have gave no good indication of what they were up against. The most he could do was make rough guesses based on what he did have, and his previous experiences in the jungle crater. The rest would hopefully become clear with time.Morician325 1d
1d Legionstrike: Alpha [Open] Saehri stood at the edge of the floating island to the east of The Conservatory. Azeroth shimmered in the distance, a shining backdrop to the shattered metropolis in the foreground. Mac'Aree had cracked into a thousand pieces yet she could still recognize the streets of the city she grew up in. Turning, the purple saronite armor that covered her eight foot form clattered as her icy gaze lingered on the demonic scouting party she and her daughter had slain, her malicious scythe still embedded in a demons skull. Grabbing the weapon the demons body quickly decayed, moving to the far corner of the ruins Saehri found her daughter. The young Draenei sat quietly against a broken pillar, her lithe form hidden behind a bright violet fur lined cloak, the only evidence of her ivory complexion being the two backwards swooped horns sticking out of the hood. Floating in front of her was a large tome, arcane energy manipulated the book as well as the quill moving quickly across it's pages. Saehri raised an eyebrow but Vahrra answered the question before it could be asked. “I have been studying the combination of arcane and necromancy and it’s effect on the legion. After all, knowledge is power, that’s what you…” Vahrra caught herself, “I mean my mother…” The mage let out an exasperated sigh and turned her cerulean gaze up towards Saehri, “Apologies mother, this is still…odd.” Vahrra offered the Death Knight a warm smile. “It is, I’m sure with time we will both adjust. Now to more pressing issues.” Saehri produced a list from Archmage Khadgar along with several rune carved stones. “Here’s the list Khadgar provided detailing the people he recruited and their locations. I’ve taken the liberty of adding the last name myself…” Vahrra cut Saehri off. “The Warlock you mentioned?” She questioned. Saehri nodded as she laid each stone on the ground, each accompanied by a personalized letter to the recipient, the last letter to Chesz written by Sae herself. “Can you lock onto them and transport the stones?” Saehri rested the blade of her scythe on the ground as she waited for Vahrra to respond. “Give me a moment,” The Draenei stood, grasping hold of her vibrant golden staff, and studied the list for several moments, “I should be able to blink each stone and letter to the appropriate person, it should appear right in front of them…or hit them in the head.” Saehri began to protest before Vahrra cut her off, “You try teleporting small objects impossible distances then tell me how accurate you are,” She chuckled lightly before closing her eyes. A flow of arcane energy billowed her cloak revealing just a hint of the well kept purple and gold cloth underneath. One by one each stone and letter disappeared with an arcane pop. “Just your Warlock left….ah!” As the final stone blinked out of existence an unexpected blowback of energy knocked the mage on her backside, “Ouch…care to explain that one mother?” She asked teasingly. “I am sure I do not want to know,” Saehri responded as she helped Vahrra up. “Do we know anything about our destination?” The Death Knight waited as the mage rubbed her temples, shaking off the unexpected backfire. “Not really,” She shook her head, her loose raven hair swaying back and forth. “I tried reaching out through whatever ley lines this planet still has but, aside from there being an unnatural amount of energy coming from a dead quadrant I can’t tell you anything you don’t already know.” Saehri nodded as her daughter spoke. “I expected as much, in any case the team should be arriving soon.”Saehri152 1d
1d Writing Prompts - Word of the Day Learn new words, have fun, exercise your writing. I post 3 words daily. You don't have to use all three. Any word on this master list is fair game. Any style of writing is fine except explicit adult writing (Just cuz blizzard says so). Splitting the word archive into posts with two months and links to them. This post will eventually cap out lol.

1d "Quarantine" (IC-rp thread) Dalaran is bustling with activity, people most likely having a party due to the fact that the legion is dealt with and enjoying there time, though for some odd reason the ledgerman Tavern seems to be the most busy as of late, enough for suspicion. "So i heard this guy is hiring people for a extremely dangerous job!" said a goblin patron in the tavern. "Yeah right, you suppose this human mage is the key to find the place and hiring mercenaries?" said another patron, most likely a mage guard off duty. "It's True, i met him once, he only takes the toughest people for hire without care, and gives warnings to those who are seen as lesser mercs!" said a random gnome patron. "How dangerous can it be... he's probably wanting the best for easily done payment, bet he hires anyone just to make the lowest bunch walk away without thought." the rest of the conversation is drowned out, most are talking about the rumors, the rest are discussing about the meteors landing in gilneas, or concerns about the the small war in there, only to be interrupted by a small fight between an orc and a worgen, luckily however, the fight rolls out into the streets. However that is not there main focus, the gossiping is however. The tavern is crowded, most spots are filled, only one that is not is a couch with a single human keeping his hood over his face, and a trench coat. only thing able to see of his features is his ash colored beard and pale skin. Around his fingers, he wears a ruby gem ring that appears to be cut in a rose pattern. he gazes around the tavern for potential hiring, a single eye popping out of his hood, which gives off a odd color, blood red pupils gazes at the door for anyone who enters while he occasionally taking a drink of his glass of whiskey.Dârak225 1d
1d Please help me come up with a surname I suck at this. I know generally the components that I want I just can't construct one that sticks. I was hoping incorporate any combination of the words: Mist, Tea (also any descriptive words that might pair well with tea), Brew, Paw, Moon(or any synonyms), or really anything that might evoke a zen, healer monk Pandaren vibe. I super appreciate any help offered.Zhongli7 1d
1d Legionstrike: Genesis [Open] The snapping of the kindling. The light crackle of the flames. Slowly but surely, the familiar sounds of the campfire brought Lianhua out of her reverie and into the present. Inquisitive emerald eyes widened slightly as it all came rushing back to her. Meditation did have a way of removing oneself from the woes of the world, if only for a while. But such a thing could be dangerous with potential enemies hiding in every shadow. This was their second night in the wilderness, she and the other members of Legionstrike. An elite task force picked by Khadgar himself to quell high-priority threats with subtlety and efficiency that large armies could not achieve. A single knife to still a storm of blades. It was poetic when the Pandaren thought about it. She and her companions were hiking through Eversong Woods toward the deepest reaches of the enchanted forest. The mode of travel was a necessity, despite the fact that any number of mages could have teleported them much closer to their destination. These days however, you could never be too sure who might be a Legion spy; the series of monolithic runestones set by the Sin'dorei to ward against outside threats would surely trigger in response to a translocation spell of that magnitude. The fewer people that knew about Legionstrike's presence, the better. Popping the cork from one of her favorite brews, Lianhua lifted the bottle to her lips and gazed about at the others whose lives she had been assigned to keep hale and whole. An imposing group, to be sure. She rather liked the worgen though. Even beneath his armor he still looked fluffy, like her. A tad more ragged, but that was alright. She would have to recommend her favorite shampoo later! Such thoughts helped keep her spirits light in the face of their mission. While a preliminary excursion to test Legionstrike's effectiveness, the importance of their success was no less vital. Demons had taken hold of an old and forgotten keep in the farthest reaches of Quel'thalas, in a stretch of land only patrolled by the restless undead and the damned. Such a foothold could not be suffered. From that position, the Legion could easily mount a campaign against the Sunwell from the blood elves' very doorstep. And they all knew what had happened the last time: Kil'jaeden nearly materialized upon Azeroth. Lianhua shuddered. Her people had been safely hidden by the mists of Pandaria at that time, but she could only imagine how terrible the toll if one of the Legion's commanders had arrived to take a personal hand in the invasion. "So," she chimed in an upbeat tone, glancing about at no one in particular. "How did you all get chosen for Legionstrike anyhow? It is always nice to make new friends, and the way I see it we should at least be introduced before we go to war together, yes?" She bowed her head from her cross-legged seated position. "I am Lianhua, of the Duskpetals. It is an honor to meet you all."Arlynne168 1d
1d Role question from a new-ish guy Howdy all! I was thinking about making a human/Kul'Tiran human (when I unlock them). I want him to be a sailor in the navy, and hold a small noble title. I want to know what's the best way to go about not sounding like an elitist. On the same token, I can't really decide if I want him to be a young sparky junior officer, or some old sea dog admiral. What is your opinion on RPing a more senior military flag officer?Nelmuphos2 1d
2d new roleplayer server? so i am wondering what servers might be good to try roleplaying. I tried using search but what came up was years ago so yeah........ I am not sure if i will do horde or alliance, but I want to try it out with the new expansion. simple as that. And honestly the people more than the faction matter to me if that helps. aka im not loyal to either side i just want people who aren't (insert derogative terms here)Dorinnie10 2d
2d How Does Your Toon Wake Up And Sleep? All of us have different routines or habits when we rise in the morning and prepare for bedtime in the evening (if you're a creature that sleeps). Describe to us what a typical day getting up in the morning is like for your toon(s) by answering the following questions! Rules & Guidelines - Anyone can participate! - You may answer as many of the questions as you like. - You may answer the questions by simply telling us the answer, let your toon(s) answer the questions themselves, or even RP the answers out in a short story. - Most important rule, have fun! -Getting Up In the Morning- - Where and what do you typically sleep in? (IF you're not a sleeper, what are you typically doing during the first 2-4 hours at sunrise?) - What normally wakes you up in the morning? Do you tend to wake up at the right time naturally or does someone/something help you know when to wake up? - Is it normally difficult for you to get up in the morning, or easy? How long does it normally take for you to get out of the bed (or whatever you were sleeping on)? Are you pretty grumpy when you wake up or do you tend to be a shining spot of sunshine getting out of bed? - What are the first few things you do when you get up in the morning? - Do you sleep in your armor, PJ's, or your birthday suit? (PG-13 please ;u; ) - Do you brush your teeth? What do you use to keep your canines clean? (Or looking the way you want them to?) - Do you shower? Where or what do you normally shower in? What do you normally use to get yourself squeaky clean (or looking the way you want to?) (PG-13 plz!) - If you have body piercings, body art, trinkets, or other things you attach to your body, do you sleep in them or is putting them on part of starting your day? - How long do you spend sprucing yourself? What sort of techniques, if any, do you spend getting your hairdo (if any) and face the way it looks every day? Comb? Brush? shaving knife? makeup products? Other? - What do you normally eat for breakfast, if you eat at all? how do you normally get your breakfast? Do you purchase it? cook it yourself? Hunt for it? If you don't normally eat breakfast, what sort of things do you normally do in the morning (about sunrise) after getting up from bed (that is, if you sleep). - Do you have any consistent/regular activities in your morning routine? Such as meditating, talking to yourself in the mirror, cleaning/repairing your armor/weapons, planning, reading, studying, little hobbies, training, performing or preparing certain things to ensure your day goes the way you desire it to, superstitions or religious things, etc? How long do you normally do those things and why? - What are some regular or common enough situations or problems you have to deal with when getting up in the morning? (i.e.: siblings busting into your room, hurrying up for work, waking up to danger, etc etc etc etc.) - Whether we're aware of it or not, both morning and night are common times of our day when we might get lost in thought, sometimes even in deep brooding and self-reflection. What kind of thoughts do you have while you're getting ready to start your day? - Anything else you do before you truly start your day? Don't forget to mention why for everything if you can! -Preparing To Sleep- - Go back and answer many of the same questions asked for the morning, but this time for bed! - What kind of activities do you regularly do before going to bed? What kind of activities do you do in order to ensure you fall asleep and get a restful night? - Do you prepare yourself or a to-do list for the next day before heading to bed? Why or why not? - Whether we're aware of it or not, both morning and night are common times of our day when we might get lost in thought, sometimes even in deep brooding and self-reflection. What sort of thoughts cross your mind while you're preparing to go to sleep? What sort of memories might be comforting or tormenting your mind as your consciousness gradually surrenders to the world of your subconscious? Most importantly, don't forget to think about the "why" for all the questions! I hope y'all have fun with this! ^u^ Don't care if you consider yourself a lousy writer or a prodigy, I'll be looking forward to reading every post! :)Silvanni12 2d
2d Dark Iron Dwarf Background: I recently created a dwarf "of Dark Iron decent" and was hoping the background I made for him would be "acceptable." Please explain whatever I may have that is "bad." Danession is an average dwarf male. Stronger than most, but certainly far from the strongest ever. He has ruby red eyes that can be described as soft and warm, and his skin is a stoney-flesh color. Otherwise, he seems very average/normal. However, his torso is covered in scarred skin. A trained healer may think he once wore a vest made of lava that seared away his skin. His hands, most of his arms, face/neck, and legs are otherwise normal in appearance. Danession was born in Shadowforge City and grew up there. While he was still a very young adult (fully grown, but not quite considered a "true" adult), he was kidnapped and used for experiments by a cult. The cult was put to an end a while later, but not before leaving the physical and mental scars on Dan. Dan was among the first to volunteer to go with Moira to Ironforge. After spending some time there, he eventually made his was to Stormwind. Having little desire to be near a forge, Dan takes up Tailoring. He also holds a part-time job of gryphon handling/stablehand and aspires to be one full-time.Rosewell1 2d
2d Why so many single race RP guilds? A large majority of RP guilds that I see are single race. What is the point in this? It just seems to stunt the community for me. I have a range of races and classes and would like to find a guild that can fit all my characters, since I really like building connections with my guildmates and don't have time/desire to manage multiple social groups for each race. But I'm having a terribly hard time finding an all-race inclusive guild on either WrA or MG :(Destitor12 2d
2d Two Lovers (OOC) Post bios for my new RP. Story is as follows: Keriastra wants to find her lover Lillain again. Lillain is somewhere near Karazhan. Keriastra is in Silvermoon City. Ravasha Witchhawk under the alias Sinsea Scarletdawn has sent a missive to Horde adventurers: "Dearest friends and allies, I am a prospective employer. I hope to hire you to reunite two women in love. Pay is negotiable. Meet me in Falconwing Square. Love and kisses, S" Will you answer Sinsea's call? For fame, fortune, infamy or none of the above? Template for chars: ...Ravasha0 2d
3d Are there pennies? I was liking the name Pennysaver for my goblin, does that fit? Surely not the modern literal definition of "1/100th of a dollar" but loosly as "a small amount of money". Citizens would probably say copper and no such word as penny?Shame5 3d
3d The Defense of Keel harbour The Vinculum Ex Novis has layed dormant idly protecting where it was needed (Idly taken as we have been within the guild handling events and such) But now everything is under fire due to a new order and their barbaric ways. Claiming the Crown would have reason to give a settlement to them and now they wish to destroy our ways, our banner, and of course our outpost. It does seem off however that the Crown wouldn't come to the Vinculum and tell them to move personally and rather send a low ranking officer demanding to "fall under their banner or perish." The Vinculum and her people do not stand for barbaric threats of #!**@!!@ and pillage and the common settlers seem oddly suspicious. So the Vinculum calls to you hereos of the alliance! With the impending threat of the Forsaken slowly mingling around the walls of gilneas we seek help while we also defend the front, to also have aid in this war!

3d Are you a good poet? Not sure if this is the correct section of the forms to be posting this on, but here it goes. Are there any good poets out there that can write a little something about starlight rose? Just for laughs. (:Cornëlius6 3d
4d RP adventure guild Hey wyrmries, I have been toying with a concept for a guild. Adventure/exploration...where as a guild we would go out and explore the world, and go on adventures...be it quests,missions etc. we would focus on doing more world rp and walkup rp , and individual character progression. Members will be able to make their own guild events that helps progress their own character story. for example: "Savaniaa was supposed to meet her family in silvermoon after spending their entire lives without a place to call home. Days turned to weeks, and weeks turned into months, and her parents never came. She doesn't know if they are alive...or dead." Would anyone be interested in a guild like this? If so I am looking for active members and officers to help get it on its feet. my btag is amber1995#1418Savaniaa16 4d
