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.

Clicking the "thumbs down" icon will expand a drop-down menu which will include "Dislike," "Trolling, "Spam" and "Report" options. "Dislike" will rate the post down. If enough people dislike a post, it will be darkened, and with a lot of dislikes it will be hidden completely.

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
6d 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 6d

11m 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...Salkeen57 11m

1h Hunted (Sign ups OOC) Lynara Leafblade awoke with a gasp. Her vision quickly adjusted to the low light of her surroundings. Standing to her feet she immediately noticed her lack of weapons and armor, worst yet she was in the middle of the woods it seemed. Heavy fog prevented her from seeing beyond the small clearing she was in. Her eyes narrowed as she looked for any signs of life. Something was off and it took for a minute to realize that it was the lack of animal sounds, even crickets and other insects. It was utterly silent. The sound of heavy foot falls alerted her to an oncoming presence. Something about it filled her with dread. She rolled herself under a bush, hoping it would obscure her in the darkness. The figure entered the clearing where she had just been standing. It stood and looked around before walking further it. Its heavy breathing made its unnerving presence even more so. Its face was obscured by a white mask, with only the eyes visible, although she couldn't make out any details, but this figure was large by her standards and seemed to be a male. In his right hand was a large cleaver like weapon, it seemed to be wet with something, but in the darkness she couldn't make it out. His left hand held a nasty looking bear trap. Lynara felt something building in her as he stepped closer to her hiding place. She felt fear. She had stared death in the face dozens of times before and never flinched but this figure had a presence that made her want to flee into the woods. He passed her hiding place and continued on into the woods. Lynara felt a sign of relief come out as she waited until she couldn't hear his foot falls before trying to come out from the bushes. Hello and Welcome to Hunted! As you can see our brave Victims have awoken in this dark forest with no memory of how they got there and no weapons or armor to speak of. While some healing magic works the rest seems to elude casters. The thread will primarily be about surviving and attempting to find an escape from this cursed woods. Now lets get to some sign ups. This thread is for fun and doesn't necessarily have to be canon to your characters story, (IE they can die here and not effect them anywhere else) The better descriptions of how a character hides or flees the better the chance they will have of avoiding the Hunter's gaze.

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.

6h Do you RP with NPCs? Hi all, I'm new to RPing (on WoW, anyway, not in general) and I'm starting my first dedicated-to-RP character. I was curious, do you guys normally RP while turning in quests or talking to NPCs? Like emoting at them (wave, bow, thank, etc), or saying aloud "thank you" or responding to something they say? I'm just curious because I feel like it would be fun but I don't want to look like an idiot either, if no one else does it. Opinions? What do you do when it comes to NPCs? :)Baelfiar0 6h
6h Name for non-Lightforged Lightforged What would you call a Draenei on the Xenedar that hasn't gone through the Forge of Aeons or failed? I know technically they're just Draenei but I want to put something in the "Race" box that let's people know what I am at a glance. "Draenei" implies I'm from the Exodar and I'm not Lightforged in the gold bits sense. Should I just leave it "Lightforged Draenei" in and explain later? "Lightforged" Draenei to imply I'm not really? or maybe "Offworld Draenei"? Do people just see Lightforged as their race rather than their state?Rahkur8 6h
10h New to RP. Questions about Sniper/MM lore Hi all, Been interested in giving RP a shot have a vague idea of the direction I want to go with it. I like the idea of being an Orc marksman/sniper/mercenary. But being new to this I obviously don't want to get stupid with it. So my question is: Is there any lore or examples of this? I know there are the kor'kron snipers in Garrosh's horde, and dwarven riflemen in warcraft etc. Are there any other sources I could possibly draw influence from? On that note, any suggestions on how to approach such a character in game? I'm new to this. Thanks in advance!Ramborc5 10h

She took a deep breath before wondering in the opposite direction that the hunter had went. She didn't know why he seemed to be stalking her, or at least she assumed he was. His presence was unnerving to say the least. She started to creep through the underbrush. She figured the best option was to simple head in the same direction to eventually find the edge of the forest.Distrò10 11h
12h 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.”Saehri110 12h
17h Disappearances in Dalaran IC closed. A day passes since the murder and kidnappings,Tandrina rode in the sidecar of Jeimel's motorbike and as they rode,t appeared Jeimel had a deep look of concern on his face. Seirus was normally a man who kept to his schedules but for some reason had not come home the previous night. A sight of peacekeepers surrounding the testing field made the rogue swerve and park his bike abruptly approaching one one of the peacekeepers "I'm Jeimel Brightdawn,retainer to the Dawnflower family and freelance agent,might I ask what happened here?" The peacekeeper looked to the half elf with a grim look "I'm afraid an incident happened on academy ground,the murder of a teacher and what looks like the abduction of two other instructors,do you recognize these glasses?" Jeimel and Tandrina both went pale as they had noticed the familiar spectacles "Oh dear gods,those are papa's!!!" Tandrina exclaimed in a tear choked voice. The half elf's blood began to boil but took a deep breath not wanting to upset the younger elf next to him. "Don't you worry Tandy,I'll see to it we find your father,Word has probably made its way so on top of whichever investigators get called in,I'll take the liberty of writing a missive for anyone willing to enlist. [Note: This was just a little before the missive was posted] Any other leads to a potential suspect,? I could be of some assistance." he asked keeping a serious expression. "Well,aside from the broken corpse of Thomas Kennsington,this strange block of ice meaning one of our suspects involved could be a rogue death knight. We'll keep you posted once we know more." Jeimel gave a nod "Thank you I'll be in the area,in the meantime I think I'll see to it my young mistress here is taken somewhere safe." ----- Two death knights had blundered into her while she was roaming the wastes. Some apparent patrol it would seem. While one was willing to join her the other was less than cooperative. He struck out at Distopia while his comrade merely stood back to see how things played out. Distopia side stepped his attack. “Fool you could have joined us,we are siblings in death!” She declared. “Traitor I know of you Distopia. Though you have changed your form your soul is just as wicked as it once was.” He said raising his blade. “I serve the Deathlord now and I will see you dead traitor!” He gowled. She sighed in dissatisfaction. “I had hopes for you. You claim to be free yet you serve the Deathlord and who does the Deathlord serve? The Lich King yet again. You’ve willingly bound yourselves in chains. I will see them broken!” She proclaimed. A great darkness took shape behind her and everything for the defiant knight went black. Ghosar sighed as the report of the missing patrol came in. “Not fully missing one body was discovered. Signs of a struggle.” “I would hope my knights would put up some kind of fight.” He rubbed his head. “Get me Sandara... on the double.” Somewhere on the Broken Isles, a blood elf death knight pulled her sword from the body of her latest victim. She grinned as she looked over at the night elf beside her and saw a long line of demon corpses stretching behind them. "It was so nice of the Legion to invade and give us this all you can torture demon buffet." "Especially after how quiet it's gotten." The blood elf frowned as her eyes scanned the horizon, looking for something. Her frown deepened as she turned to look behind her. The invasion seemed to be dying down for now. Only the commander, a tall, busty female demon with six arms, remained. Sandara nodded to Delilyah. "Go for it. I know how you love making her kind scream in fear for the first time." Sandara stood back and watched as the night elf sprang into action. Something was bothering her with how quiet things had gotten in Azeroth. With the bulk of the world's forces focusing on the battle against the Burning Legion, she would have expected the criminals, cultists and so on to take advantage, turning Azeroth into their own personal playground, but they weren't. A beep from her cloak had her reaching for a communication orb that she carried with her. "This had better be good Tommy." "Ghosar wants you back here on the double." His voice faded for a moment as if he had turned to look at something behind him then turned back to the orb. "Better make that on the triple. I can't work out if he's worried or pissed. Maybe both." "What's going on?" A hardness started to creep into her voice that she was getting concerned herself. "He won't say much. All I know is that the last report was about a patrol where one person has gone missing and the other was killed." 1/2Tandrina363 17h

1d Looking for a RP partner Hi! I am looking for someone to RP with me based on the information I have given below. It does not need to be in game RP, in fact, I would almost prefer it to be via text. But, I’m not opposed to doing it in the game either. Perhaps a bit of both? Add me to talk about it; btag is Pheril#1235. She is a Night Elf hunter, her companion is Skoll (lightning wolf). She is an orphan and an outcast, seeking revenge on those that raided her village and killed her family as a child in The Hinterlands (trolls). She has a problem with bloodlust when fighting Horde. Is constantly hunted down by various parties to bring her back to Darnassus for “crimes” committed. She is excellent with herbs and uses them to heal minor injuries. Constantly tries to leave others. You? You’re a run-away Night Elf druid prince (I know it’s not technically a prince but, I’m sure you understand what I mean), living an outcast life by choice. Everything else is up to you (though don’t make him evil). You do not reveal who you really are until VERY late in the RP (when you absolutely HAVE to).Pheril0 1d
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.Dârak182 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."Arlynne148 1d

1d What do you like/dislike about your faction? Not including the playerbase! In-universe only. What are some things that you like about your faction or the opposing faction? What about things you don't like very much? This is talking mostly about how they're characterized, what they've done, maybe individual races you like. Do you feel faction pride? Or does your pride stem more from a certain race or class rather than faction? How about your leaders? Would you rather be led by someone else within your faction? Or would you rather just keep your current leader but change something about them to make them better (in your eyes)? Or just keep them the same? Anything and everything you can think of about your faction or the opposing one, post it here! With Battle for Azeroth coming up and war reigniting, I thought it would be interesting to see how people feel toward the factions going into it.Cheveyoh10 1d
1d 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:Saehri264 1d

2d Cleansing the Nightmare. Can Druids & other things afflicted with Nightmare corruption be cleansed? I know Malfurion cleansed Cenarius, but that is a VERY special case, and I don't want to claim to be as powerful as Malfurion, or be lore breaking. My character is currently trying her best to cleanse those things corrupted by nightmare, I have been RP'ing this quest for quite some time, but I always state "I have made no progress" in fear of lore-clashing. Her current efforts she has sought out help to work along side with the Cathedral of Light, in hopes that they may have a different perspective on an approach to cure nightmare corruption. Doing this involves bringing 'samples' of things corrupted by Nightmare to the Cathedral of Light under high protection, and trying to to cleanse it with the aid of the priest there. (I've been using Nightmare Lasher and Nightmare Whelp battle pets for this). So would it be possible for Melanaes to eventually solve this plight? This has been her own RP, that several members of my guild have joined in with, and even have a guild member that wishes to wrap up the story by having her RP as a corrupted druid that we cure. As you can see by the guild tag, we are members of the Cenarion Circle, and we are very devoted to staying within the realms of Lore for our story, so if Mel finds a cure, it would be assumed the entire Circle would be able to use her research, which would be very Lore conflicting.Melanaes2 2d
2d Purpose: A Scarlet Request (1000 words) (Hello. I wrote another story because of all the discussion around BfA. This story is in no way related to any spoilers and only uses ideas that are available from Legion. So please don't worry. Also I have absolutely zero insight if this story is even feasible, anyone with a clearer picture of lore is free to correct me. Hope you enjoy!) Five strides within the last few seconds. Dawnseeker was tiring and the blood draining from her onto the misty path in Trisfal was becoming too much. Jacob Hastenings rested his hand onto Dawnseeker's side, trying his best to calm the beast. An arrow was puncturing her hide and he couldn't think about removing it. Last time he tried to remove an arrow, Dawnseeker spent a month in the stable. That was years ago. Just as Jacob had joined the Crusade. But now, years later, Jacob had learned his lesson. The arrow would stay. Hope wasn't something that dwelled in Trisfal. It died long ago with the greenery that made Trisfal so pleasant. He found himself just outside of Lordaeron, something he reflects upon quite often. Back then, Jacob was a squire, spending his days polishing and smoothing out armor for Anse Hastenings, a respected member of the Silver Hand. But now Anse's armor sat in Jacob's room, locked away up top the monastery. There it would remain until Jacob could muster the courage to bring it out for longer than a few minutes. A minute was all it took to remember the pain of his death. Three minutes was where the memories of his second death became a problem. Somethings were just better being forgotten. Dawnseeker winced in pain. But Jacob and Dawnseeker, weren't the only ones on the path in front of the ruins of Lordaeron tonight. Near the border from Silverpine, Jacob had picked up two forsaken riders. And unlike Dawnseeker, their horses didn't feel the pain of expended breath. Every few yards the riders would get closer. And when Jacob found himself on the path to the monastery, that is when the hoofs of undead steeds became the most clear. Settled tightly in Jacob's lap was his bag. At this point, that bag was far greater than Jacob's life or any single life in all of the Crusade. Because that bag had tears and scars of a journey that spanned all the way from Stormwind. Truthfully, Jacob didn't know what Stormwind would want with the Crusade. No one ever told him. The noises from the forsaken steeds distracted him. He turned around to be faced with a forsaken woman who was as formidable as a rider as he. Her name was Penelope. Jacob knew this because he knew her, before she became a monster. Maybe that's why Jacob never killed her. There had been plenty of times he could have, but hesitation caught the hilt of his sword nearly every time. Just ahead of him, Jacob spotted the lanterns that would lead up to the monastery. Below the lanterns, covered in shades of darkness, there were two Scarlet scouts, waiting to receive Jacob. But something cold latched onto Jacob's arm. He turned to his right to see Penelope. Without second thought, he latched his bag onto the saddle and then fell to the ground. Penelope was on top of him and despite her skelatol figure, she wasn't easily moved. She leaned in and Jacob could make out the face of the girl he knew years before. But whatever his fate was, he had succeeded.Menard1 2d

2d Troll warlock idea Hello, everyone, I'm trying to get into rping, and I had this idea for a Troll Warlock. I wanted to get some feedback before I went all in on it. The basic gist is, this guy is basically an accidental warlock. He doesn't believe he's actually in contact with demons, but sees his familiars as "guardian loa" blessing him with extraordinary magical abilities. Completely unaware of the corruptive nature of the fel, he doesn't see a difference between his flames and the standard mage ones, and the demons are more than happy to feed on his naïveté. One more pawn for the legion after all. Is this like, a character that could feasibly happen? Or is that stupid? Basically what I'm asking is, how much of a warlock's spell list is granted by demons compared to say, studied from a tome? Thanks for the helpZonnebrand1 2d
2d 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!

3d 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#1418Savaniaa12 3d

"What a day,I can't believe I finally got Mr. Kalel's previous spell right,I think I'll give Leon a call and see how his and Sera's day went. Papa's looking forward to seeing her this weekend." She giggled at recalling Seirus' happy expression when Sera called him grampy and then it dawned on her "Hmm,speaking of which I should remind myself to fix him something to take to his next lesson first thing,papa always gets so lost in his work." She saw the number on the door to her flat as she readied to conjure the shape of the rune needed to access the building.The two had been trailing the young mage. One armed with a set of brass knuckles, the other with a blackjack. The order was clear, the buyer wanted this mage alive. "Dead is easier." Muttered the human on the left. "Too easy, coulda gutted her four times already." Said one dwarf on the right. "Just follow the plan lad, I got things to do later." With it becoming evening this part of Dalaran was not quite as busy as the rest of the city. Both men split, one moving to her left side, the other to her right. "Pardon me lass, I tink I be a bit lost." Said the dwarf on Tandy's right side. His partner has slipped into the shadows, blackjack in hand ready to knock her unconscious. "Could you direct me to the Inn? Had a lil much ta drink." He said with a hic and a slight stumble, adding to the drunk façade.Something about the dwarf's words seemed a bit suspicious,it could be nerves but she decided to play along while getting ready to get a cast off. "Of course sir,it's just across the way next to the toy shop!" She pointed as though pretending to give directions which lead to a cone of cold being shot from her index finger to freeze her potential assailant in place while it wouldn't kill him,he would be feeling quite the chill. "You made a few mistakes,the first one saying you had too much to drink,I've never heard many dwarves say that and second,you don't really smell like alcohol at all." The dwarf was caught off guard by the sudden attack. Frost coating him and freezing him in place temporarily. "Now!" He shouted. His associate lunged from the shadows behind Tandy, swinging at the back of her head with his wooden blackjack. Tandrina heard the dwarf call out to his accomplace as she quickly blinked barely evading the blow form the black jack as she launched a flurry at her second assailant while keeping a defensive stance "Who are you and what do you want with me?!" She said with a tinge of fear in her voice. "I doubt this is just your typical robbery." The dwarf was hard at work chipping the ice rooting him to the ground while the human rolled to the right. Shadows enveloping him, her spell passing by him harmlessly. "You think we don't know how to deal with a mage child?!" He growled stepping through the shadows right behind her again. "We are here for you. Nighty night!" He said bringing his weapon around again. Tandrina grit her teeth placing her glasses back onto the bridge of her nose before blinking once more freezing the dwarf's feet into the ground "Final warning,I may be a kid in your eyes but I'm no pushover!" She closed her eyes as an aura began to surround her,not ice but surprisingly....fire and as she splayed out her hands towards the dwarf,ice began to form in the other hand swirling the two elements together they took the form of a dragon's head as a cone of fire burst from the head and smacked hard into the dwarven assailant knocking him back,the frost of the spell preventing potential fatal wounds. "Took me a while to fully control this spell but you'll be alright,well...if you mind yourself in whatever prison they lock you up in for attempted kidnapping..." As she was speaking the human had made a quick recovery ready to clamp his hand over the girl's mouth only to feel a strong kick into a nearby pile of crates knock him out. [1/3]Tandrina446 4d
4d can one use the COH as a role play area? i was thinking about places to rp and came across the monk order hall as a thought. I love the wandering isle and the fact that its a great main hub for both factions. So heres my question(s) -1: would it not work on account, that its just to specific? -2: Can a raid groups be set up and invite other monks from other servers or are the class order halls only on your characters server(and connecting realms)? -3: is the monk role play aspect just not that anticizing? Thank you for reading and eager to hear everyone's response P.S. I know there are just as good places in pandaria to use that give the same effect and easier for others from other class's to use and join but i just wondered if order halls were used like this or if class role play is not that popularPingbrewstep0 4d
4d Your character's reaction to Sargeras fall I just realized that my draenei toons have spent much less time on Argus than others, and that seems wrong from a lore perspective. Nevetheless, it brough up this idea. Describe your characters reaction to Sargeras fall, and the end of the Legion, proper.Trados5 4d
4d Slow role players? or fast role players? Morning everyone, I just recently started to rp about a year and a half ago and I am slowly starting to get the hang of it. I have found races i like and that i am comfortable with. I do have a slight spelling issue (which i use the misspelled add-on to help with) and I type to fast which makes me misspell my words. But when I take it slow i can do fairly well, heres the issue. The slower i go the longer it takes and have found ones become inpatient and leave but the more accurate i can be. The people I have done interviews with have not liked my misspelling (which I try not to have too many) or that they don't like para (which I am sometimes do to get all my emotes/icly talks out. That and I take a while for my para moments). I mostly type one-four liners and quick responses just to get my emotes out so they know i am trying. So I guess what I'm asking is, what is the rp community really looking for, Perfection? Speed? Accuracy? Short liners? Para liners? I guess I'm just having difficulty finding what others want. Because the way I rp (slow and para or fast and misspells) is not good enough. Tyvm for reading and looking forward to hearing everyone's opinion.Iravis10 4d
5d Toy to imitate a friendly NPC's appearance? Hi, I am wondering if there is a toy or item that can change your appearance to imitate a friendly npc, like a guard or vendor for a short time? (Like how the sky-mirror copies a targeted player's appearance) I think this would be a good tool for rolplayers as well as fun for others.Victorskyrun2 5d
5d Turn Breel into an NPC please. As many people of Moonguard know, the Gnews at Gnine (Nine?) is one of the biggest daily Roleplay things on the server and they always draw a crowd of loyal listeners. Breel happens to be a lot of peoples favorite characters of the Gnews. Between his characters personality and the segment he hosts, he is a moonguard staple and anyone on alliance has at the very least heard of him. I would like to humbly request that Breel is made into an NPC, to get more specific a cooking trainer or perhaps even a cooking vendor with unique recipies. He would be neutral, available for both Horde and Alliance to interact with and get their own special Breel approved recipies.Atróxis11 5d
6d 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.Mortre400 6d
6d 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.Morician299 6d
6d Tournament of Ages coming August 5th Hello, everyone! You may have heard of the Tournament of Ages, a yearly festival held on the Moon Guard RP server.

May 18 Does your character play Hearthstone? We know that Hearthstone exists in WoW to some extent; there are Hearthstone tables in Pandaria for one thing, and Gul'Dan even drops a "Golden Hearthstone Card: Lord Jaraxxus". So I want to hear about what sort of relationship your character has with the game, either in Azeroth itself, or in some hypothetical alternate universe where card games are the most important thing in the world, a la YuGiOh. A few questions to keep in mind: Where and when do they play Hearthstone? Do they play with friends, or strangers? To they play for fun, or do they gamble? Do they play standard format, or wild format? Do they enter tournaments? Does your character play with a themed deck that matches their fighting style/personality, or do they keep the metagame in mind? Do they play multiple different decks, or just one deck they're really fond of?Brighidele10 May 18
