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.

Jul 4 [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 garble 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 CompilationShandrís108 Jul 4
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 [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 (such as an alternate dimension, change in the past, nightmares or dreams, etc.). But 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 in before they 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 dead bodies than they are zombies. 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 taken down to achieve the goal. The Challenges These usually include physical, mental and spiritual challenges which can be in any order, and usually spread out. These challenges also don’t have to be related to the main story, and can be simple challenges on the side to further character development. The Approach Your hero is getting close to the goal! Is s/he backing out? Preparing for battle? Avenging his/her mentor’s death? Having multiple flashbacks?Canniibal21 Sep 25
Jun 27 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/1756043459Slywyn207 Jun 27

4h Red Talons ( ICC-Rp) The troll ruins that was once empty now has a group of mostly human races encamped inside it, tents set up, though the odd part is they don't show there faces, they wear mostly cloth that covers there entire body, the color matches that of the sand area them, some of them are armed with guns, swords or even rare few seem to be a spell caster by appearance, some may see this very suspicious or some might see this over protective. "Boss! Camps are set up and our wanted posters are also put around towns, except for booty bay, just like you said." said one of the so called Archaeologist to The man in the center, He Nodded in response, "Excellent, now we just wait for brave adventurers who come help us." "Tell the lads to be on the alert though, can't let that one escape too easily." The other man nodded and walked away. The the man who people assumed to be the leader of the group continued writing down notes for his fellows in the camp.Hawkéns128 4h
7h 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.Morician147 7h
12h Godmode RP What is the most polite and orderly way to deal with godmode RPers? I mean when you can't just leave, like when someone does it at a Guild RP event.Saehen9 12h
12h Demons and Oaths Hey all, Been involved in some Demon rp lately, just have some questions. -Can a Warlock bind to a Demon? What does it mean and what power does the Warlock have over the Demon? -Can a Warlock perform any ritual that allows for a Demon to respawn in another location should the Demon be killed, instead of presumably Argus? -is a Light-wielding Demon possible? Say, a Draenei Paladin who was captured and forced to take Fel energy until they warped into a Man'ari. Appreciate any thoughts/comments!Aanuvael23 12h
13h Looking for 2 characters to draw I'm looking for two characters to draw but this is not a first come/first serve thread. This also isn't a digital art thread. I'm making physical art, most likely portraits as these will be relatively small (3.25" round). Once I'm done, I can ship these to the winners so long as you can cover the cost of shipping (likely $2-4 range) via paypal or any other way we can make it work out. If you'd like to include a brief physical and personality description of your character, feel free as it'll certainly help with composing the drawing. I'll pick two characters based on whichever kinda jump out and inspire me artistically. I'll come back and check this in an hour or two and hopefully will have enough responses to choose from. Also, since this is a physical piece of art and not digital, keep in mind it may take a few days before they're completed and uploaded as depending on the materials I use I might be waiting on stains or paints to dry. Here are a few examples of past WoW related pieces I've done: https://imgur.com/Sf2HB9Y https://imgur.com/YJlLJCo https://imgur.com/YSYJno7 Thanks for looking and good luck!Mohe16 13h
14h Who goes to Argus, who stay's on Azeroth? Since I appear to have accidentally posted in the wrong forum, I changed the thread to a much better suited question. so, there are two groups that have been made in the wake of Argus being opened, those who have joined with Velen to assault it, and those who have stayed behind to defend Azeroth... So then... what side are you characters on? How do they feel knowing that some of their strongest fighters have left for what may be their certain doom? How will your character cope with this fact, and will they flee for cover when Legion Ships descend upon the world? Or will they fight?Banrok19 14h
15h Red Talons(Rp OOC) A poster is signed up everywhere, in most neutral cities or even horde and alliance aligned ones. "Hello Adventurers, mercenaries, hired goons... I DON'T CARE WHO OR WHAT YOU ARE! but Someone has been stealing our artifacts, Archaeologist caught a glimpse of the thief but we have enough description of him, but every time we get the guards or even tell someone of of it, he either knocks them out, out runs them or even on a rare occasion, killing them! So he's not a thief, but a murdering monster!" On the bottom you find a name and how to contact the person. "My name is Clark Goldstone, And we have a camp far north of in Stranglethorn vale, and don't worry about factions... we are basically a Neutral party who only cares for the aim of uncovering history." Under the note is a small map that has a dot indicating where there camp is located, huh it's at a small troll ruins, they must of either wiped out the trolls or done something else. __________ HELLO This is a sign up for Red Talons, This is a rp thread where you do some investigating and look for who might be the thief of archaeology recent finds might be.

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.Mortre324 1d
1d Mystery of the Palladium [IC closed] Kalithos was packing his research papers lost in thought hoping this expedition would be a success I don't have to obtain a whole lot of this ore,even just a small sample to study and test will do,if given the right results as I theorized,this could revolutionize how we see modern medicine and may progress us further to finding cures to terminal ailments or devastating disabilities. He closed the case with a locking mechanism being heard when Damalys came into the room to see what was taking the young doctor so long. "Hey proffessor if you're done packing or primping by now,the biplane is fueled up and ready to go,I used gnomish fuel of course. No offense to Snytz but that stuff he uses is way too volatile." The boy scratched his cheek and smiled sheepishly "Uh...yeah,sorry about that bro,I'm pretty much done and ready to go,though where did you get gnomish fuel from I thought you were out?" The engineer savvy Sunstriker brother replied his voice carrying a slight echo "I bought some last night,some gnomish girl I ran into was going on about the wonders of "Tinkerspell's Potentally Powerful Rocket Fuel. Apparently a small amount of this stuff goes a long way so this should get us to The Storm Peaks pretty fast if this holds true." He looked to Kalithos and made a gesture as if to say let's go "Well,the plane awaits and hopefully with me around,you won't get into too much trouble." Kalithos jutted his lip once more into a pout as he grabbed his belongings and adjusted his glasses "You act like peril is a daily occurrence for me." He walked outside looking at the plane slightly impressed storing it into a small cargo hold with Damalys' tools. "Because it is,Kali but it should go off without a hitch now that I'm here and as long as I keep any sentience you're going to stay safe and sound." With that,Damalys looks to Kalithos one more time as they get into the bi plane "By the way,you found someone to watch the place right? in which the younger Sunstriker brother gave a nod. "Awesome,I'll double check the fuel gauge and parts and we'll be up in the air!"Kalithos477 1d
1d Chibi's I am bored and out of art practice so... I am not amazeballs, but I'll do 5 chibi art characters. Chibi art is like a simplified art style based in Anime and Japan. 5 names will be drawn from random on Monday (night when I get up). Please post character description if different from armory, and character personality.Vynianyx22 1d
1d Wishing to draw your character! Hi everyone!, I'm new in this forum. I'm not very related to rol community, I use to do it by myself. Also, my English is not the best, so I beg you pardon. I'm a warlock, who almost know nothing about himself. I grew under the care of a Voidcaller, in the deep of Duskwood forest. Now, in real life, I'm an art student, and nothing inspires me more than World of Warcraft role. So, what I wish is to actually draw your characters in a sequence, or anything you want. Don't expect too much. Also, let me show you my horse, Shadowrunner. I found his corpse in the shore of tanaris, close to the Cavern of time. He may be from other line of time. I gave his body the soul of a hundred of creatures: https://img04.deviantart.net/5454/i/2017/067/7/3/warlock_horse_idea_by_femarot-db1msa0.jpg Hope you guys like the Idea and coment!

1d Scandinavian music Anyone know of some good Instrumental Scandinavian music? Similar to the music we hear when we are riding the boat to Northrend / in Howling Fjord. (That music is played using a nyckelharpa). Something I can buy off iTunes that I can play in the background while I play WoW. Can someone list some albums / artists? My search is yielding little in desired results. I would just like someone to point me in the right direction. Instrumental Celtic music is great too.Arkiz6 1d
1d Looking for RP people to play with Hello. I've been playing on Brazil Goldrinn server, but no one there likes to RP, and I understand, the goal of the server is not RP at all, but once all my friends play there, I'm also there. A little background: I read the first wow book Chronicles volume 1 and it blew my mind. I always played wow just grinding in dungeons and giving nothing to the lore of the game, and after this book my mindset is completely changed. I want to enjoy and learn all the lore I can. What I want: I'm looking into start a new pandaren character in Moon Guard or another RP server, and I'd like to play a ... how can I name it, maybe a Lore game mode, which would be something like that: Do not play dungeons/raid to get level, only level questing and going in places where you can get a good lore background of what happened to azeroth Do not use dungeon/raid finder, we would find the entrance and start it. Best scenario: you do dungeon once, and that's it, no need to do it again once we already killed all things inside it (unless we pursue an specific item in that dungeon/raid, it would be an exception to do it again). Actually read the quests and understand what and why we're doint it.I know it will be very rare to find someone who wants to RP like that, because it will demand time, but I have hope :)Xengzu2 1d
1d Shadows of Sholazar (OOC -- Closed RP) Posted on a bulletin board in a city near you: Adventurers wanted! Several disappearances in Sholazar Basin that need investigation—cultist activity suspected but not proven. Please send applications to Morician Blackborne of Defenders of Truth. Greetings, and welcome to my first RP thread! This will be mostly a mystery-adventure type thread, with about 5-7 people. Both Horde and Alliance characters are welcome. Adjustments will be made here as needed(writing this late at night and it'll likely need a bit of polish later). One character per person please, though exceptions can be made if it makes sense for the story and multiple sign ups can be posted(though only one is likely to be selected). Basic Rules/Expectations No god-moding or Mary Sues. It's not fun for anyone. No derailing the thread—while I don't mind some character conflict, everyone is expected to be working together as a group. If someone's being problematic it will be dealt with, either through discussion here or removal from the thread. While perfect grammar isn't necessary, I do expect effort to be put into your posts. Posts need to be legible, more than a few sentences long on average, and posted in a timely manner(1 post a week, at minimum). At the same time, don't flood the thread with posts either--exchanges between characters are wonderful, but make sure you aren't drowning others out in the process. Apologies if this seems a bit strict, but I'd rather lay down the groundwork now to keep things in better order later. Sign Up Format Name: Age: Race(if different from posting toon): Allegiances/Moral Alignment: Physical Description: General Personality: Reason for Joining: (This should be written as an IC application letter—doesn't need to be long, but acts as a rough RP check and possible springboard for starting posts)Morician102 1d
2d Lore Q&A and Character Help 2 A continuation of my last thread, found here: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20752578668 I have a knack for knowing and finding obscure references in lore and, generally, just knowing a lot about it. If you have any lore questions, want some help with a character backstory or anything of the like, leave it in the comments and I will happy to do my research and help in any way I can!Cannibal234 2d
2d Lightforged - An Explanation? ****Spoilers on the most current Argus quest chain*** So I noticed there is no literature out there or even theories on what Lightforged is or means or the process one goes through to become Lightforged. We can assume Turalyon is. We can see the Vindicator become Lightforged. (?) We could assume that was what X'era was trying to do to Illidan (?) So is that what happened to everyone in the Army of the Light with the title "Lightforged"? Is there a process? A ritual? I am personally interested for the RP aspect and to know a bit more lore on the topic.Lunamie7 2d
3d My Cast of Characters Going to post two of my characters here since the last time I tried to post each of them it failed. Feel free to say things about them if you like! Name: Ravasha Witchhawk. Age: Middle-Aged Adult (Younger than Bravicia). Appearance: Ravasha has reddish-brown hair tied back into a ponytail by a green sash. Her hair is clipped at the side by a green hair clip. She has white skin and wears red lipstick. Her nails are coated with red nail polish as well. Ravasha wears gold hoop earrings she bought in Silvermoon for a special occasion. She wears a set of red robes with gold and black designs. Background: Ravasha was born to a family of mages and researchers. Choosing to research and practice fire magics in her early life she rose to fair proficiency. When Arthas came to raze the Sunwell her magics failed her as she battled the undead Scourge. Seeking a new kind of power she eventually found a teacher in Selerra Sorrowsong and began her new life as a warlock. Staying in Silvermoon City she has taken to searching for tomes of her craft that she can study as well as ever new ways to destroy her enemies with her spells--She may even try to test her theories on demon hunters and other warlocks due to their similar energies. Name: Bravicia Witchhawk. Age: Middle-Aged Adult (Not sure how old blood elves get). Appearance: Bravicia's skin is coated in red scales. She has long ginger red hair and wears gold hoop earrings given to her by her sister. Bravicia has curved black horns growing from either side of her head. She wears a red-and-gold veil/blindfold over her eye sockets. She wears a leather tunic and leather skirt as well as boots that cover part of her legs with small heels. Background: Bravicia was born to the Witchhawk family of Quel'thalas and rather than taking on scholarly pursuits found herself in love with fancy footwork, speed and melee weaponry. She employed herself as a tracker and scout. Seeing her sister Ravasha just about killed by the Scourge she started to believe that her current path was not enough and took the opportunity to travel to Outland with Kael'thas Sunstrider when it came. Meeting Illidan and training at his Black Temple she consumed the heart of a succubus as her rite of passage as a demon huntress. Participating in the mission to retrieve the Sargerite Keystone she boarded the Fel Hammer and helped to destroy Brood Mother Tyranna. After recovering from her imprisoning by the Wardens she began living in Dalaran. Working to end the Legion whenever possible she hopes to someday see her home and family again. Done. I shall write the others' stories when I can and edit them into my starting post or else just make new posts for them. :) List of Character Posts: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20754448071#post-6 (Vaneka and Catherana) https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20754448071#post-7 (Lexica Brighthope) https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20754448071#post-9 (Aichun Oddmoon) https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20754448071#post-12 (Jezula of the Darkspear)Bravicia11 3d
3d I'm new here so hello! I am honestly just taking a shot in the dark here. I've roleplayed for about twelve years and never have had a WoW line. I have some ideas in mind and would be willing to do a server change to make it happen if need be. Do any of you role play outside the game or just in game? Going out on a limb, here!Selanay4 3d
4d Warlock Artwork A wonderful piece commissioned by a friend to have her Warlock immortalized in my signature comic-book art style. Yes! She is nude! Yes! She is censored! https://i.imgur.com/chPJjhw.png This is only to ensure that forums rules are adhered to. The nudity in the artwork is tasteful and not explicit in the least. Just a naked pose.

In the same sense, are there foods that makes them gag? Feel free to either list your likes or write a story about a specific food/drink. If you do write a story, I encourage you to go wild on the description of texture, flavor, fragrance. Make us either crave for it or abhor it!Maffe16 6d
6d Evil Legion-themed RP Guild? (Moongaurd) Hi, I want to start an Evil-Guild here on Moonguard on the Alliance side that's not a criminal guild. So I picked up the idea of making a cult that worshiped the Legion. Is anyone interested in joining the guild? Planning on having events weekly during the weekend. (mostly accepting Warlocks, Rogues, Warriors, and Demon Hunters.)Qeun0 6d
6d If You Were In Bad Weather (Scenario RP!) What do your characters do in the midst of bad weather conditions? I think it's rare to see people RP bad weather, and I speak not of the occassional "it's too cold" or "it's too hot" and the "I love/hate this weather" comment. If ya think about it, most of our chatacters probably hang out outside in the wild far more often than most of us in real life do, right? Encountering bad weather would no doubt be a relatively common occurrence. What I want to know is, when your character finds his/her/itself in dangerous weather conditions, like out in a blizzard somewhere in Frostfire Ridge, lost in the blistering heat of Uldum, caught in the humid downpour of heavy rain in Stranglethorn Jungle, scaling the treacherous heights up the cliffs of Mount Hyjal upon less than trustworthy footing that could break under your feet without warning and send you falling to your death, so on and so forth.... what do they do to survive? On a side note, there also happens to be a hurricane on its way close to my area of Texas, here's to hoping we don't get hit too hard! So, you may RP the scenario however you like. :) 1. You can simply explain in a short sentence or paragraph what your character would do to survive in any specified weather conditions of your choice. As a bonus, you can mention where or who taught them the survival technique they used to survive in the scenario. 2. You can write a short story about a time your character(s) had to survive a type of harsh weather condition of your choice. As a bonus, you can write how your character feels when asked about the experience (shortly or long after the event), and how they react to recalling the experience, and/or how they respond when asked to risk going through it again. Or you can write about what your character does to survive in the scenario while in the middle of flying on a mount! 3. You can also go through this list of harsh weather conditions and write a short reaction from your character for each, or you may come up with your own weather conditions. If ya wanna go crazy (and evil to your toon >:D ) you can choose a combination of bad weather conditions they have to deal with at the same time! Feel free to choose the location which the scenario takes place. If you're not sure what sort of weather conditions are possible in specific places in the game, you can simply describe the location rather than name it. (i.e. Jungle, Forest, Mountain, Desert, etc.) - Sandstorms - Blizzards - Heavy Rains/Flash Floods - Floods - Tornadoes - Hurricanes/Powerful Winds - Scaling tall Cliffs/Mountains - Earthquakes - Blistering Heat (Dry or Humid) - Freezing Cold - Thick Fog - Volcano Eruptions (suffocating Ash Fall and/or Boiling Lava) - Thunder Storms - Hailstorms - Crossing Rushing Rivers - Quicksand/Quagmire - Avalanches/ Rockslides/ Mudslides - Sticky, Hot, Humid Climates - Mirages (in hot climates) - Etc. etc. etc. I threw in some natural obstacles in there too, have fun! :DSilvanni15 6d

Sep 17 Is RP dead? First of all, I have been away from the game for quite some time now. I needed a break. Things were becoming so commonplace and boring, I just could not handle it. Now I am considering coming back, giving the game one last chance to keep me involved and stick around. I have one more month of play time to decide if I want to renew and keep playing. One account only, not the two I had. So my question...I need rp in my game to enjoy it. That is how I am and how I play. I have dozens of characters and plenty at 90 and a few over that. But I am not into this to level like crazy and then sit there wondering what to do next. I want to find some people who actually rp and play the game as their character. Lore perfect is not necessary, but it helps to at least try to stay within the game and not some fan based fantasy of some other game. I play WOW to be in WOW, not some other universe. You are quite welcome to play as whoever you want. Allow me the same courtesy and I will not harass you or lecture you, but do not expect me to rp with something other than a WOW character. Is there anyone out there in this beautiful world that Blizzard created who actually likes to role play and stay in character? It's a challenge, I know. You get distracted with someone talking OOC and you forget you are actually in a game that allows you to be a fantasy come alive. All I am asking is to find a few people, dedicated to actually playing in the game as the character they have chosen. Class is important of course. It all adds up to the character and what they want to accomplish. I am not looking for someone who is going to be some super overpowered badass who can do no wrong. I expect flaws, emotion, a little bit of backstory to give your character some dimension. Be a part of Azeroth, not a lore perfect nerd, or a pvp expert set on destroying all other players in the game. Is all this too much to ask? Am I dreaming of an Azeroth that does not exist?Hahnei22 Sep 17
Sep 16 Need a little help from the community... So, I just want to clarify first, I'm very new to RP. I've recently re-rolled to focus and work on two characters. However, the problem I'm running into is deciding on professions and which class it would 'fit' better with. The profession I want to have perfectly 'fit' is alchemy and herbalism, and the two characters are a Forsaken assassination rogue, and a Forsaken priest. I want to roleplay as an Apothecary, so I want to have a class what would back that up. Help me decide!Dreadmoss8 Sep 16
Sep 16 Looking for Mentor! (Moon Guard) I'm looking for a mentor currently for my set Character and decided to approach this forum post, I would like a Mage Mentor who could teach my gnome about Illusion magicks. His name is Crakevink, he's thirty years old and just beginning to pick up Magic, specifically Illusion-ish Magic. If anyone would want to offer being a Mentor then drop a Reply down below. P.S. This is not his actual set, just leveling him up while waiting for a Mentor to reach out to me so I can start his RP.Crakevink0 Sep 16
Sep 15 Classes and Their Traits Hey, I am thinking about making a website that has a quiz that finds out what your real life WoW class is. I come to you guys as you are the experts on classes and their typical traits. I would like to know what you think each class' traits are (ie Mage=Studious, Intelligent, etc...)? Also, I would like to know if a person's job should be a factor for each class (ie Paladin=Police Officer, Security Guard, etc...)? If you don't want to list them all, you're main and it's traits and job factor is fine. I would normally just go off of the main WoW site, but I feel like the descriptions don't do the classes justice. I'd rather not have Demon Hunter just mean angry. Thank you.Pathayne12 Sep 15
Sep 15 Cost of War (IC) Alvarah looked over the desolated land of the broken shore. It's ruined form wreaked of demonic desecration. Their foul presence corrupting the soil of Azeroth. She knelt down to look through the remains of the inquisitor demon she just slew. The fighting on the broken shore was relentless but the armies of Legionfall held against the demons. Something caught her attention when she touched it. The desiccated steel leaf. It's edges still sharp. "I know this." She looked to see a small demon cowering behind some boxes. "You, small thing where did you master get this item?! Answer me!" She demanded, how blades hungering for the demon's filthy blood. "M master take it from prisoner." He squirmed under the shadow of her hellish blade. She pressed it against him, drawling a trickle of blood from the filthy creature. "Where?!" "Xalados, Legion stronghold in the nether. Impossible for mortals to reach." He howled as the blade cut flesh and soul. She grinned as she locked him in a banishment spell. "It is good we have a guide then, isn't it?" Stowing her catch away for safe keeping she went back to the Fel Hammer. Of course the answer was no. They said that with the Legion invading and the Slayer on the broken shore with the other Legionfall commanders they couldn't afford to move the Fel Hammer from where it was. "If the Illidari will not help me then I will gather my own allies." She stormed off through the portal to Dalaran. She knew that the Legion having that was no coincidence. That blades leaf was from Lynara's armor. The warrior had been missing presumed dead since the broken shore disaster. After the invasion she had scouted the broken shore but to no avail. It made sense now. She wrote several letters, making imps deliver them. Some others would require personal visits. But even if no one came she would save her aunt, even if it meant taking on the Deceiver himself. At Hyjal she emerged from the shadows. Waraila a Druid of quite some skill had been hiding in exile for years. It wasn't easy to find her but the destruction to the mountain by the Legion allowed her a more open invitation to snoop around. She soon found the Druid and emerged, her fel eyes and tattoos illuminating her from the dark. "Hello Waraila. I require your assistance. Years ago you knew and fought along side my aunt Lynara. She has been help prisoner by the Burning Legion since our original invasion of the broken shore. I'm putting together a strike team to get her back and would be honored if you would help." She place a letter on the table . "If you decide to come to Deliverance point on the broken shore in three days time." With that she vanished back into the shadows. Her next target would be a bit more complicated. Almost a full day later she located the warden Kari. "Warden," She said "I have come for you." Her fel green eyes and tattoos glowing bright in the darkness. Kari looked at Alvarah. "Why the hell should I trust you demon hunter?" Karinya's eyes glowed a bright silver as her hatred shone through them. Alvarah narrows her vision. "I come not seeking your trust, but your aid." She threw the scorched insignia at the warden. "This is proof of my deepest fear. The Legion has had Lynara prisoner for months." Karinya bent to pick up the insignia, her eyes not leaving the woman in front of her. Her fingers traced the scorched metal and she fought back tears as she recognised it. It belonged to a sentinel that had been a good friend to her over the years. Her eyes narrowed as she looked at the insignia and her voice threatened to break. "The enemy of my enemy-" She looked up at the demon hunter, her eyes almost the colour of ice and her voice taking on a hard, dangerous edge. "You have my aid, for Lynara's sake. Once she is free and safe, I never want to see you again. Deal?" "Deal. Deliverance point, two days. Bring Sammuroth. Tell him while he plays around in the forest some of us have been trying to stop our world from burning." She growled as she vanished into the shadows.Disvara153 Sep 15
Sep 15 <Circle> - Blackwater Raiders realm Hello everyone! My name is Saukie from the mercenary RP guild Circle on the Blackwater Raiders server. I'm here on the forums advertising for our guild. Circle is a mercenary RP guild consisting of all races and classes with primarily any backstory. The way the guild works is this: the main storyline is not set specific. It's made flexible for any member to input their storyline and change. Ultimately, the members of Circle are what decides the storyline. The recruitment process is an application through mail, and then an In Character interview with the Guildmaster. Level 15 is the minimum level for new members joining. What do you guys do? - Currently we have a separate storyline that will eventually connect with the guild.-- We have set up a Timewalking Legacy guild on the same server that chronicles the events of classic WoW to current content. This is just a way for members to develope stories for their characters they wouldn't have otherwise been able to. As we progress through the expansion those races and classes can also be made. - A monthly raffle for a WoW token is hosted by one of our gold-making members. THat member also posts gold-making guides on the Messageboard Addon. Messageboard Addon? - It's an in-game forum addon for your guild! Here we post character stories and potential RP events, as well as PvP and PvE events and the like. Lore and RP Requirements? - We're pretty flexible when it comes to lore. As long as it doesn't conflict with anybody else's storyline (i.e. someone being Arthas' father), you can follow the "it doesn't say not to" rule, where if it isn't stated clearly or at all in the lore you can work with it. Guild Activity? - We have 282 members currently, with a steady activity rate of around 10 members on weekend days/nights. 11-18 members with events going on or guild meetups in the Tavern. How to Join? 1. Have a character on the Blackwater Raiders or Shadow Council server. 2. In-game mail Ring-Blackwater Raiders about your character and why you want to join Circle (i.e. Looking for a home, family, or saw it on the call boards in Stormwind). Any questions? Please feel free to ask!Saukie1 Sep 15
Sep 15 Mystery of the Palladium [OOC Sign ups] It was a quiet evening at Sunstriker Manor where Kalithos could be seen reading through a pile of books he borrowed from The Reliquary after finishing his rounds with patients for the day. "Man,so many relics tell so many different stories,even some of the ore used for some of these relics back in the day had their own story to tell." He turned the page of the book and suddenly,a look of intrigue appeared on the young doctor's face upon reading about a rare ore. "Palladium,eh? Says here it's an ore that has mysterious properties to it,rumored to be linked to the titans and their technology somehow. Rumored to be located in the continent of Northrend,it's considered to be quite sought after,I wouldn't blame them if I could find a small sample perhaps I can study it and maybe even implement this titan technology with modern medicine. Perhaps I could come up with a machine with it that could help those with terminal illnesses by putting them into a stasis like state to help prolong their lives painlessly until cures can be found..." With that,Kalithos sprung up and began to pack his things ranging from some warmer changes of clothes,to medical supplies and the aforementioned book he was reading. "I better leave in secret in the event someone else decides to pursue finding palladium for their own nefarious purposes,I'll need to contact Snytz for a means of flying there and--" his sentence was cut short at the sudden clanking of saronite armor and turned around only to see it was his brother leaning against the boy's bedroom doorway. "Dammit Damalys,you scared me..." Kalithos stated sheepishly only to get a slight glare from the elder Sunstriker brother "You WERE going to say a flight vehicle for two right?! You're sure as Hell not going alone with your track record of getting abducted,I'm coming with you not only as your big brother,but as someone who could give you input on how to whip up such machinery,remember I was a warrior AND dabbled in engineering before I was killed. So if you can't get that little sheister of a goblin to lend you his zepplin,see if he will lend us his bi plane." Kalithos jut his lips into a slight pout hearing his lecture,he was right but at the same time he couldn't help but mutter "I don't get in THAT much trouble." in which Damalys responded "That's a load of tauren crap and you know it,if anything bad happen to you do you know how pissed Rethandral would be at me..better yet BRYAH?! She nearly put a crossbow bolt between my eyes for letting you venture off alone 3 months ago. I know you wanted to finish that dig for Flint after his passing and keep your promise to him, but you need to take care of yourself too,you know? Me not so much seeing as I'm already dead." The elven doctor sighed "You're probably right,alright have whatever you need packed and ready,I'll see what Snytz has available for travel then ask Bree about patrolling the compound while I'm away since Reth will be away for his champion trials. We'll be leaving at dawn's light." Ladies and Gentlemen welcome to the Mystery of the Palladium, an Indiana Jones esque adventure RP I got inspired to make when reading on the various ores in Cannibal's thread. Palladium having said to be linked to the titans somehow intrigued me hence making it the central object of search and study but of course there will be most likely be thrills,chills and spills but I do ask a few things of those who decide to sign up. 1. No godmodding/Mary Sue characters- an adventure RP just wouldn't be the same if someone pulled a Deus Ex Machina and somehow end the intended story line prematurely,plus it just wouldn't be fair so while your character can be strong please kindly have your strengths be within reason so everyone gets a chance to contribute through the story and not feel left out. 2. Before you sign up- Be sure you know you can have the time to give fairly consistent posts,RPs tend to end on cliffhangers when someone drops out and their actions leave others at a writer's dead end. So please be able to post frequently and in the OOC chat lemme know if your post will be delayed,we'll figure out a way for your character to follow without being left behind. 3. Don't be a jerk,try your best to keep the posts drama free and if there is an issue that needs to be addressed,lemme know in a clear and concise manner so the issue can quickly be resolved,I'd rather not have friendships end or someone feel unwelcome from a misunderstanding. 4. Most important rule...-Have fun! :D With that out of the way,I give you the sign up sheet!

Sep 15 Cost of War(OOC-Sign ups closed) Alvarah looked over the desolated land of the broken shore. It's ruined form wreaked of demonic desecration. Their foul presence corrupting the soil of Azeroth. She knelt down to look through the remains of the inquisitor demon she just slew. The fighting on the broken shore was relentless but the armies of Legionfall held against the demons. Something caught her attention when she touched it. The desiccated steel leaf. It's edges still sharp. "I know this." She looked to see a small demon cowering behind some boxes. "You, small thing where did you master get this item?! Answer me!" She demanded, how blades hungering for the demon's filthy blood. "M master take it from prisoner." He squirmed under the shadow of her hellish blade. She pressed it against him, drawling a trickle of blood from the filthy creature. "Where?!" "Xalados, Legion stronghold in the nether. Impossible for mortals to reach." He howled as the blade cut flesh and soul. She grinned as she locked him in a banishment spell. "It is good we have a guide then, isn't it?" Stowing her catch away for safe keeping she went back to the Fel Hammer. Of course the answer was no. They said that with the Legion invading and the Slayer on the broken shore with the other Legionfall commanders they couldn't afford to move the Fel Hammer from where it was. "If the Illidari will not help me then I will gather my own allies." She stormed off through the portal to Dalaran. She knew that the Legion having that was no coincidence. That blades leaf was from Lynara's armor. The warrior had been missing presumed dead since the broken shore disaster. After the invasion she had scouted the broken shore but to no avail. It made sense now. She wrote several letters, making imps deliver them. Some others would require personal visits. But even if no one came she would save her aunt, even if it meant taking on the Deceiver himself. At Hyjal she emerged from the shadows. Waraila a Druid of quite some skill had been hiding in exile for years. It wasn't easy to find her but the destruction to the mountain by the Legion allowed her a more open invitation to snoop around. She soon found the Druid and emerged, her fel eyes and tattoos illuminating her from the dark. "Hello Waraila. I require your assistance. Years ago you knew and fought along side my aunt Lynara. She has been help prisoner by the Burning Legion since our original invasion of the broken shore. I'm putting together a strike team to get her back and would be honored if you would help." She place a letter on the table . "If you decide to come to Deliverance point on the broken shore in three days time." With that she vanished back into the shadows. Her next target would be a bit more complicated. Almost a full day later she located the warden Kari. "Warden," She said "I have come for you." Her fel green eyes and tattoos glowing bright in the darkness. Kari looked at Alvarah. "Why the hell should I trust you demon hunter?" Karinya's eyes glowed a bright silver as her hatred shone through them. Alvarah narrows her vision. "I come not seeking your trust, but your aid." She threw the scorched insignia at the warden. "This is proof of my deepest fear. The Legion has had Lynara prisoner for months." Karinya bent to pick up the insignia, her eyes not leaving the woman in front of her. Her fingers traced the scorched metal and she fought back tears as she recognised it. It belonged to a sentinel that had been a good friend to her over the years. Her eyes narrowed as she looked at the insignia and her voice threatened to break. "The enemy of my enemy-" She looked up at the demon hunter, her eyes almost the colour of ice and her voice taking on a hard, dangerous edge. "You have my aid, for Lynara's sake. Once she is free and safe, I never want to see you again. Deal?" "Deal. Deliverance point, two days. Bring Sammuroth. Tell him while he plays around in the forest some of us have been trying to stop our world from burning." She growled as she vanished into the shadows.Distroid107 Sep 15
Sep 14 Questions from my first RP experience I've recently swallowed my fears and took a stab at RP - and immediately fell in love. Some nice guildies helped me along the way but I still have a few concerns about etiquette that I'd like some guidance on: 1. Do I talk or /e too much? During our 6-man event, whenever something significant happened, I would think of my character's reaction and /say or /e it out. When there was a lull (i.e. our party was waiting for something to occur), I'd usually be the first to break the silence and /e something that draws attention to my character. I noticed that my party members did not do this as frequently and I'm worried that I'm being an attention hog. 2. When is it appropriate to enter a conversation? When a plot is thickening between two players, I don't want to stand there like a scarecrow but I also don't want to go, "Hey! Look at what I'm doing while that's going on!" 3. I'd like to develop a Paladin that uses the Light, rather than medicine, to heal and I'm wondering where to draw the line for his powers. I don't want to break lore and be on the same level as, say, Uther, but I also want to be able to bless my party or mend wounds. I'd love any/all advice on this as I have little idea where to start. 4. Not a question but I'm interested how you guys/gals remember your first RP experience :). I'd love to read about it. Thank you all in advance. I had sweaty palms when I first started but now I can't wait to jump right back in!Dedem5 Sep 14
