World’s End Tavern: Role-play and Fan Fiction

Jan 22, 2013 The Legend of Ozane Once upon a time, there was a Gnomish Priest named Ozane Voltbolt. Ozane was a cheerful Gnome, inspiring his fellow Gnomes with every action he took. However, tragedy befell Ozane. One day, he had woken up with a cold. This was not something that immediately concerned him, however. Time passed. A week had gone by, and Ozane still had the cold. More time passed. It had been a month since Ozane had caught this strange cold. He was unsure as to why this cold would be afflicting him still, as he had tried his best to get over it. To Ozane's horrific misery, he could not cure this cold. Magic did not work, medicine did not work, nothing worked to cure Ozane of the cold that plagued him. Seventy-five years later, Ozane had sorrowfully accepted that he would forever be infected with this horrible disease. He spoke with many friends of his sadness, and of his downward-spiraling depression he had gone through due to the cold. One day, his friends all gathered together. They went to Ozane's home, and sang happy gnomish songs to him, and attempted to cheer him up. Miraculously, Ozane's friends had unknowingly cured Ozane with their friendly songs of gnomishness. Ozane hopped up from his bed and exclaimed he was no longer sick! Ozane was overjoyed, and returned to being the legendary, inspirational, cheerful person that his fellow Gnomes respected and loved. It is a tale passed down from Gnome to Gnome, in every home. The Legend of Ozane.Wolvigar1 Jan 22, 2013
Jan 22, 2013 Engineering RP Question -- Two Devices I've been RPing Alchemy and Engineering as my two trade skills (yes I'm an Herb/Alch OOCly) and come up with some pretty fantastic devices for use in RP based of what's available to Engineers. I was thinking of two other devices though that really have no base device available in-game but I figure would be more than plausible. Just looking for feedback: 1) Twisting Nether Generator Description: Instead of teleporting to a remote location, a crystal pulled from the twisting nether beyond Draenor can create a small area of twisting nether around the caster. The link is only as stable as the crystal used. Theory: Engineers can teleport all over, including to Outland, so why not bend space to come to you instead of the reverse. By locking into the twisting nether with an enchanted piece of the destroyed Draenor it can pulled that pocket of Twisting Nether to surround the user temporarily. Use: The crystal used is important as the stability of this generator relies upon its quality. Depending on the quality, this effect can last anywhere from 2 to 30 seconds and be used periodically every 15 mins to 2 hours. Overloading the crystal with more frequent use will assure its destruction. 2) Holy Energy Recompiler Description: A small device that attaches to the palm of a glove, it contains within it all saronite gears and in the center is locked a solid rod of saronite. It has the ability to create a magical vortex to suck in all holy energy and fire the blast back out again. Theory: Saronite is known for its ability to not only deter holy energy, but also has the unique ability to reflect that energy back. With Engineering there are devices that create magical vortex that can suck energy inside and it would simply route all that energy into the saronite. Use: Due to the nature of the device, the more frequently it is used without a cooldown period the more the gears will wear out. It takes around an hour to completely cooldown but can be used anytime if the user is brave enough. Using it more than once in a five minute period will cause immediate destruction.Eliza2 Jan 22, 2013

Jan 22, 2013 A Night in Netherstorm “Bang, you’re dead.” Startled, Ronnell dropped his scope and briefly scrabbled for his bow before realizing that the voice and words were familiar. Lifting his hand from the bow, Ronnell straightened. “Orc, one day I’m going to put an arrow through your skull.” The brown skinned Orc snorted and walked into view, his Dwarven made rifle propped over his shoulder. “The day you get the drop on me is the day after I’m dead.” He paused then said with a smirk, “For real.” Ronnell grimaced, then waved at the fire. “Coffee?.” He paused. “I also offer meat and salt.” The Orc nodded. “I accept.” As the Orc moved to the campfire Ronnell pulled the spare bowl from his pack and filled it with talbuk stew. “What are you doing here? It’s not on the way to anywhere.” He handed the stew and a salt box across the fire. The Orc accepted with a slight bow and sat on a convenient rock. “Kradu heard that you’d passed through Shattrath. This seemed the most likely place to find you.” Ronnell frowned, then said nothing. Down the hillside the ghosts flickered in and out of view on their endless aimless circuits around the desolate village. Ronnell picked up his scope and resumed his watch. “I hear you’ve been beyond the Portal.” After a slight pause Ronnell responded. “That I was.” “I also traveled though the Portal. A strange place, your Azeroth.” Ronnell laughed. “Stranger than that?” he said, pointing at one of the islands floating seemingly in midair around Netherstorm. The Orc scowled. “Fool.” He occupied himself with the stew while watching Ronnell watch the ghosts. After scooping the last morsel he scoured the bowl, placed it near Ronnell’s pack and stood. “Have you seen them?” “Yes.” The Orc sighed, dug two flasks out of his bag and brought one over to Ronnell. After pulling the stopper and sniffing the contents, Ronnell took a deep draught. “Ironquill Stout. Your Dwarven obsession is amazing. Where did you find this?” “Something I picked up in Bilgewater.” The Orc smiled. “I think I like Goblins.” After a pause, he continued. “Now I’m surprised. When did you become an expert on Azerothian ale?” Ronnell took another swallow. “The Ironquills were on Father’s ‘those who owe’ list. After Quel'Danas I looked them up in Stormwind. Turns out our family had been trading with them for generations, nearly since the War of the Three Hammers. They were short of guards, so I ended up escorting their wagons through Stranglethorn for a while.” He drank again. “I may have delivered this very batch.” Ronnell raised the scope again. The Orc looked at Ronnell’s profile, then back at the village. After a long silence, he said, “You know those things are only empty echoes.” “So says the Kirin Tor and so says the Naaru.” Ronnell lowered the scope and drank deeply. “Then why do you come back here?” Ronnell finished the flask, looked at it pensively then threw it over the cliff. “To say good bye. I don’t think I’ll be coming back to Draenor again.” The Orc walked back to the fire and pulled out two more flasks. He threw one to Ronnell and sipped from the other. Ronnell raised his in the direction of the village. “Good bye Myrian, good bye Dren, good bye Yelera,” he whispered. He drained the flask, then flung it after the last. After a moment, he turned back to the fire and began breaking his camp. The Orc walked back to the edge and and watched the ghosts moving along the deserted lanes. After a while, he drained his own and sent it after Ronnell’s. “What will you do now?” “Go home.”Ronnell2 Jan 22, 2013
Jan 22, 2013 Questions about undead RP I have a human character right now, but I want to go over to the horde while keeping her story. I thought the best way to do this would be to make her undead, but I have some questions before doing this (some frivolous, some non-frivolous) : 1) How much decay is present in an undead? Can an undead technically look like a human death knight model? I'm talking lore-wise, not gameplay-wise. The reason is I still want her to look reasonably human. 2) In the afterlife, she is going to seek redemption for being an atrocity of nature by being a priestess. How much does the Light hurt undead? The concept is that the pain she endures through wielding the life shows her devotion to all that is good. 3) How are undead accepted by the other races? I was thinking that she would be more tauren/troll like in her personality and just want to make sure that an undead hanging out with some tauren and trolls isn't farfetched. 4) How common is it to be a forsaken that bears a hatred for sylvannas? She hated her in life, and I want her to continue hating her in undeath. 5) Kind of piggy-backing off of the personality question here. I know the average forsaken acts just like that– forsaken. But what about a forsaken that instead looks at their rebirth as a second chance? You know, instead of acting like it's a punishment, act like it's a gift? Thanks!Tyandi2 Jan 22, 2013

Jan 22, 2013 RP Made Simple - A Role-Playing Help Site RP Made Simple was started a few years back to help folks understand a little more about RP – what it is, why we do it and how to try it, since the whole “role-playing” thing can sometimes be cryptic and intimidating. This has been my project to help role-players since I started years ago on Earthen Ring. http://rpmadesimple.com aka RP Made Simple has been mentioned on WoW Insider over the years and has helped many role-players in some way, shape or form since it's been around. It's a great additional RP Source for players. To many, this looks like extra “stuff” to do – but it’s really can be fun to role-play as your character. It adds extra value to the game and sparks your imagination and creativity. The site has a three-fold purpose: 1) To help new role-players. 2) For experienced role-players to draw from. 3) For Non-RPers to understand role-playing. With the site, you get a ton of information and ideas to put into action. I do cover quite a bit of information on the following: What Role-Playing is all about Creating a Backstory for your Character Character Development Getting into Character Tips & Ideas on Role-Playing The Basics of Starting out Finding/Creating RP Enhancing Your RP Experience And lots of other ideas to help! I also have Articles under the FYRP (For Your Role-Play) Area with special stuff that can help as well. Come and check it out if you are curious. Hope it can help. :) http://rpmadesimple.com ...Sullivan10 Jan 22, 2013
Jan 21, 2013 Mogaholic Support Group; I said, over here http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/7592912996?page=1 that I would do this. So here it is. A support group for those of us that transmog far too much, horde gear we may never touch, and farm instances for that illusive drop we can't seem to get. Will also share transmog ideas should they come up :) Welcome, and make yourselves comfortable.Lucifyr20 Jan 21, 2013
Jan 21, 2013 Trolls and Dialect I like trolls (minus the hunch), but I don't particularly care to engage in the dialect. I wondered how other RPers have dealt with the dialect, or lack thereof. - As a troll, do you attempt to 'speak' in the Troll dialect when speaking Orcish? - How do you feel when you're not a troll but encounter a troll player who doesn't speak with the dialect? I suppose I am just curious how other players deal with the Dialect, either in support or against. Wasn't there an add-on that converted a few words into the troll dialect for the roleplayer?Durtlu6 Jan 21, 2013
Jan 21, 2013 I don't know about you... Greetings my fellow players, and bruddas and sistas of the Horde. We know that there is great turmoil within the Horde right now...to say the least. An assassination attempt on my most beloved leader; Vol'jin. Of course we play a part in the story but I want bigger recognition, I would love a player choose a greater path. Forever engraved in WoW literature or culture. In the form of a NPC or a heroic questline to recount that mighty path. I want to show the world my view heads on... I want more out of wow. Much more...Zalajin1 Jan 21, 2013

Jan 19, 2013 World of Warcraft Official Timeline Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7AdpjaiR-M I managed to find this, its a 2 hour 40 minute video compiling all the events in WoW from Vanilla up to patch 4.3. Thought it was pretty cool.Rosconin0 Jan 19, 2013
Jan 19, 2013 Your RP Experience I started RPing in WoW about a year ago in the PTR. There was usually a good amount of people in the Brill server that were interested in doing so, so when I saw the offer for the first time in general chat, I asked myself "Why the heck not?" But there was criticism in response to the people that RPed in the PTR ("RP in PTR? wooow lolol"), and although I assumed their responses were haughty, I thought about it well and realized that roleplaying in servers that were meant to test new patch content was just dumb. I dropped the whole RPing thing from then on to focus a bit more on my live WoW. I wasn't too into it anyway and didn't give it much thought afterward, until November of last year, that is, when my curiosity and interest for it sprang again and I joined the Moon Guard server. I have to admit, besides the litter of strippers in Pornshire, the ton of annoying "pet" druids in cat form, and the common bunch of god-modders, roleplaying in Moon Guard has been a really fun and unique experience, one that I've never really had before. Throughout my experience in MG, I created (and became really attached to) my night elf. I'll refer to her as V. I was so interested and willing to RP with others that some people confused me for a veteran RPer. And the truth is that I like using the game in creative ways to make fun RPs. For example, I've played on two WoW accounts at once, using two different Vs for a time-travel plot. In taverns, people would run upstairs and see her, and then run back down and see her again and be like "How are you in two places at once?" Playing as V inspired me to create and develop a biography of her. A fellow RPer on Moon Guard introduced me to the MRP (My Role Play) addon, and from then on I began to write more about her life. I ended up with a few pages, which includes her history and the RPs I've taken part in with others that have changed her life. The downside to all of this was that I got a bit too attached to V. There was one point where I was sure she was dead for good; her will was written, inspected and shared by Veothore Duerron himself (another character of mine). After her death, I couldn't help but feel downright melancholy. It was an odd feeling of sadness I'd never experienced before, the loss of some fictional character that came from my head. Like a tiny part of me had died. After this, I decided to take roleplaying lighter. I had gotten really into the story of V and felt it would be healthy to take a few steps back. Although she did end up alive, I decided to let her have some down time. She's had enough trouble. If anyone's interested in reading the biography I wrote of V, you can find it here: http://moonguard.wikia.com/wiki/Vael%27doreth_Tideraiser I'm also really eager to read about the experiences from you WoW RPers out there, so please share if you're willing. :-)Veptember2 Jan 19, 2013
Jan 19, 2013 Displays of Affection... Considering how secondary or even tertiary any details concerning romance or reproduction get in Warcraft's lore, I imagine the answers to this question will primarily be headcanon, but you know what, that's fine. I like seeing what other people think. Basically, I looked at trolls and wondered: "How the hell do they even kiss with those tusks?" And after laughing to myself about picturing them as nerdy kids with their braces stuck together for a few minutes, I started seriously considering this. What if kissing, as a display of affection, just isn't really a thing at all in troll culture? And from there on, I started wondering about how each race would handle this sort of thing, with taking both their physiologies and cultures into consideration. Of course, that's setting aside the ingame /kiss emote. Which, really, is just blowing a kiss anyway. So yes. Thoughts?Caradine7 Jan 19, 2013

Jan 18, 2013 Paladins, the Light, and morality? In order for paladins to maintain their power with the Light and essentially remain a paladin they must pursue what they believe in and adhere to high moral standards. A paladin may not always be right, what they believe in could actually cause more harm than not, but as long as the paladin believes what he is doing is best and vigorously pursues that belief than he maintains his power with the light. A real life comparison might be a US infantryman. He kills people in foreign countries with the belief of bettering the world and protecting his good nation from evil. But in reality he may be simply serving the military industrial complex, banks, new world order, geopolitical gains, other special interests, and killing people for doing what they believe is right just like he is. This much I understand. But what I'm mainly asking is where do we draw the line for and define that high moral code a paladin adheres to? Obviously you expect a paladin to do good things that the average person wouldn't do or doesn't normally do. But does that mean they have to be like Jesus, your great grandmother, a preacher, etc. Or could they still get wasted frequently, bang women, shoplift small items, and do other petty offenses? Like I said, take into consideration the fact that he also did a lot more good than most people do in a day before he got wasted at night. Could someone like that meet the moral qualifications of a paladin or do they have to be more like Jesus or extra lawful good. Thanks in advance.Risksword9 Jan 18, 2013
Jan 18, 2013 Question for Horde What language do you speak? I mean in Alliance side we pride ourselves in being civilized. English is the language for most of the communications (Legal or Social) though space goats do tend to chatter in some alien tongue among themselves at times. Whenever I meet a player from horse in PVP they start yelling in some weird language which is hard to comprehend. It seems as if someone just escaped from a mental hospital. And whats up with rude gestures after killing me. Did your parents not teach you any manners? I once got a chance to visit Orgrimmar and was fascinated by so much different culture. It gave me peace to see creatures living close to nature like Flinstones. Mush be awesome. Also it surprised me that you use "big Balloons" to travel. Man that is some dangerous thing. I wonder when will your technology be advanced enough to use choppers and ships like us. Do you also have a different writing script? What script do you use while writing messages to each other? Just wondering as different cultures and languages always interested me. I would like to know more about your culture and lifestyle. It will be helpful if you can reply in English.

Jan 17, 2013 Best Hunter Class for Sapper? The title pretty much says it all. At the moment I'm MM, because I intend to craft my own guns and scopes, and MM damage apparently scales off weapons more than the other specs. At the same time though, SV seems more explosives based, but I'm not sure how often you actually use explosives/traps as SV. So which spec would be more appropriate for an explosives specialist? Thanks in advance.Dinermight2 Jan 17, 2013

Jan 17, 2013 Cross-Faction RP event... ideas? I was thinking of doing a roleplay event within my guild about taking over an alliance region (it's not inhabited by npcs) so I thought to make it more interesting, I'd ask some of the alliance's night elves to sit around and then roleplay a sort of hostile takeover battle. Does this sound like something anyone would even be interested in? I mean, I think it would be fun and a lot of my members are interested, but I'm having trouble thinking of a good way to go about asking the other side if they'd like to- my main concern is that someone who is a very high level will show up just to mess with us while we are flagged for PvP. Any ideas of how I can avoid this, or go about asking someone to help out? I'm on Wyrmrest Accord. Thanks in advance!Sintheras1 Jan 17, 2013

Jan 17, 2013 Encountering the Wild Beast. Upon entering the ship-converted-into-a-tavern in Stranglethorn Vale, which you were at due to beer wantings, you encounter a daunting male draenei. This massive oaf, he is at the bar and talking incessantly about the days when a biplane wasn't just a thing you could "Slap together with an Engineering Diploma, fly off into the mountains and have a grand old time!!" He appears to have a well-used wrench and no sort of Engineering Diploma of his own. He also appears to have had a few drinks. This was the first and the last thing you could remember before Deathwing torched the zone. Awakening to flaming debris and people running everywhere, the oaf appears before you, on the dock, with a broken leg. "AGH! MY LE~EEG!!! SOMEONE HELP."

Jan 16, 2013 No Escape ((OOC/Sign-ups)) The deck of his ship groaned beneath Captain Gareth Southwind's feet as rain lashed against the timbers. It was a full-fledged gale, and the Captain wasn't happy about being caught in the middle of it. The ship nosed upward as it crashed into another wave, sending salt water rushing over the deck. A flash of lightning illuminated the ship for a brief moment, giving the captain a quick view of the steersman next to him. The captain patted the man on the shoulder, and yelled over the wind, “I'll send Gripper up to relieve you soon! Steady as she goes, I want to see that damned island when this clears!” With that, he turned and hurried into his cabin and out of the blinding rain. He peeled off his soaked coat and, with a groan of relief, sank into an overstuffed chair. “I'm getting too old for this...” he muttered. In truth, Captain Southwind wasn't terribly old. He was nearing 40, but many would consider him to be a handsome man. His brown hair wasn't yet touched by gray, though there were several lines and wrinkles in his face that he wished would disappear. His clothing was fading finery: a silk shirt long stained a dull yellowish-brown, much worn leather pants, and calf-length black boots. At his waist he wore a pistol that was mostly for show, as his near-sightedness made him a poor shot. He was, however, skilled in the use of the rapier that he wore on his other hip. “You? Never!” replied a playful female voice. It belonged to his first mate, one Setra Sweet. Her red hair flickered attractively in the lamplight as she studied a map tacked onto the wall. “Unless you mean getting too old for slaving? Because I think we've all had enough of that,” she continued, shifting her weight to accommodate the roll of the ship. In his chair, the captain frowned. “It's not slaving, and I don't like it any more than you. It's more of a... transport contract. It's none of my concern what we are transporting...” he finished lamely. Setra sighed and gave the captain an unconvinced glare. “At best it's kidnapping! It's one thing to sink an enemy ship, because they'd do the same to us if they could. It's one thing to steal cargo, we gotta make a living. They don't call us pirates for nothing. But this.... this is gonna catch up to us. And when it does-” “Okay okay! I get it!” shouted the captain. “Fact is both Alliance and Horde ships are patrolling the seas more than ever now that that weird Pandaria continent was discovered! It's hard for a pirate to make an honest living... Er... you know what I mean. I had to do something to keep me, you, and the rest of the crew fed and paid! This guy offered me a sweet deal and I took it. Sure, I didn't know ALL the details at the time, but it's paid well so far. But I agree, I don't like it... I'll tell the contact we're out after this shipment.” Setra relaxed visibly and smiled, tossing a long lock of hair over her shoulder. “You made the right decision, Captain. I'll be going now and make sure things are running smoothly below decks.” Gareth smiled and made a beckoning gesture with one hand. “Why not stay and keep me company instead?” Setra's own smile widened as she walked across the room and placed a hand on the door leading to the deck. “That didn't work the first time, what makes you think it'll work a hundred times later?” With that, she confidently stepped out into the night. Gareth sighed as he watched her go. He didn't think his corny line would work, but he really needed something to distract himself from the fact that the holds below were crammed with chained captives - captives that he was transporting to what was most likely an untimely end on an uncharted island.Silvestris500 Jan 16, 2013
Jan 16, 2013 Healing & Roleplaying Something just came to me today... And I never actually seen it in action: RP heals. I mean, we can't obviously take the ingame mechanics literally, or else it might sound too God-moddish. I was wondering about the efficiency, for example, a "big" heal in a RP environment. It heals for what measure? A broken bone, perhaps? And how taxing is that on the caster?Ouroboros4 Jan 16, 2013

Jan 16, 2013 Paladin and Blood Knights Hi there! I have a question about blood elf paladin and blood knights. I can't seem to find the information anywhere on the web, so I have come to seek the help of the almighty World's End Tavern *Shakes fist*. *Ahem* I was wondering if it's physically possible to have a blood elf paladin who is not affiliated with the blood knights? A paladin that actually draws upon the Holy Light, and not the energy from M'uru or - in the present case - the Sunwell? I am currently developing a blood elf paladin's character, but his personality really clashes with some of the values and actions of the blood knights ;_; so this has been troubling me for quite a while. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!Aldarius8 Jan 16, 2013
Jan 15, 2013 Kettle helmet Hey guys for transmogg, I was wondering if there is a model for this medievel helmet. Its called a Kettel Helmet (or hat) created ~ 1011 AD. http://www.medieval-weaponry.co.uk/acatalog/kettle-hat-helmets.htmlPanzerll2 Jan 15, 2013
Jan 15, 2013 High/Blood Elf Lore and "new" Death Knights I'm trying to piece together some bits of information and wondered if it reasonably true? The first is, during the battle when Arthas attacked Quel'Thalas, many (then) high elves were killed. We know that Sylvanas, and some others, were raised as banshees, but what of the others? Did Arthas only raise them, or would he have raised other magisters and rangers to assist in the assault? The next question is more difficult for me to understand well. Playing through the death knight starting area, we know that a player DK was a "hero" in life, and then raised to serve the Lich King. We see there that there are "unworthy initiates". I'm curious if the Lich King would ever see an undead warrior who, for some reason or another, stood out to him, and brought them to become death knights? I further wonder if you think it would ever be possible for one of those "unworthy initiates" to defeat a chosen champion? That is, less that they were given a chance and failed, but just, here's a whole bunch of warriors, let's see if any of them can become death knights. Oh, this one looks too small/weak/whatever, and then, during the battle that "unworthy" warrior somehow gets lucky and defeats their challenger. I suppose the first part is the more important part. Could a raised warrior ever be given the consideration to be promoted, or were all the death knights raised with the specific intent of, this was a brave warrior, now they're on our side.Penieg7 Jan 15, 2013
Jan 15, 2013 The guide to Moon Guard... You walk by a mailbox in your capital city of choice, sparks snap and fizzle from from it's dropbox, and a letter spits out at you. "To whom it may concern, destitute adventureres, vagabonds, Do-gooders and merchants... Enclosed is a list of well-known and reputable gatherings of individuals that you may seek to align yourself with... for better or worse." (This is a forum relevant to MG RPers looking to get into the community. In this forum I'd like to discuss popular RP guilds and locations on MG, I've been doing research for current groups of... -looks up date- 11/21/2012. Every Month I'll try to keep this updated (for as long as my interest holds) so newbies to MG that really want to find Roleplay, can have an easier time getting into the community by reading this guide. That being said, THIS IS NOT A PLACE TO ADVERTISE YOUR GUILD. I will post guilds I deem as relevant, stable, and have a welcoming base for new RPers to the server. Also, Being that I am a horde player, I would appreciate if someone(s) could attach relevant Alliance side RP information. Feel free to discuss open RP locations to your hearts content, however. Open-world RP = MG community, the more the merrier. I hope this guide leads to at least -one- person finding a place to play, if it does, I can die happy knowing I did a good deed, yes? Enjoy!)Kñíght7 Jan 15, 2013
Jan 15, 2013 Need another's point of veiw on characters Hi. Today I have encountered a little conflict. I have two Worgens. One is a level twenty warrior and the other is a level twenty druid. I like both for different reasons. Rp is fun with both but I need to decide wich one I want to make my main. I like Druid rp since I can change and do other things but I like warrior since it makes my character thought. Which so you think would make for a better characterSiyoth13 Jan 15, 2013

Jan 15, 2013 [Orcish Verse] A Lok'marosh for Orgrimmar A Lok'marosh for Orgrimmar (A traditional Orcish song about a city, stronghold, village, etc.) (Adapted from Carl Sandburg) Boar butcher, Maker of armaments, Carver of stone, Singer of Lok'tras and the desert's hard seeds; Stormy, husky, brawling, Stronghold of earth-blood and wind-carved canyons. Your enemies claim you are wicked and I believe them, for I have seen your warriors with blades painted red, under the grim shadows of the ravines, luring the gruntlings with the silent tales of their scars. They say that you are crooked and I answer: Yes, it is true. I have seen the Hands of the Cleft kill and go free to kill again, in bleak alleys where the canyons grind and the dry winds howl with the song of the pack. They say that you are brutal and my reply is: On the faces of your women and children I have seen the marks of wanton hunger. On the faces of your peons and Shamans I have seen the eyes of starved wolves. And upon their visages all I have seen inscribed the same desert pride, Stones windblown but deathly defiant. Hearts of molten ore ever forging. And having answered so I turn once more to those who sneer at this my home, and I give them back the sneer and say to them: Come. Come and show me another city with lifted head roaring, so proud to be alive and coarse and strong and cunning. Hark to another city with canyons who thunder with the adamant echoes of living lok'tras. Gaze upon another fortress born of mightstone, hewn by ragged limbs gasping with a homeless despair that will never be voiced from these proud, tacit maws. Show me another hold whose unyielding marrow is the grim armory of the Lohn'goron. Show me another fortress whose threshold veins are transgressed only by those storm-stricken with awe. Show me another city whose very name is a lok'vadnod, whose very spirit is fused with such immortal flow, in the ever-becoming lifeblood of fathomless forebears. Where even the gold handlers, whose blood dampened Hyjal, fling their earthquaking curses amidst the ceaseless toil of iron spines and wyvern wings. Here, myths are alive. Here, the storm waves crash in vain against the eastern walls of earth. Here, the scorn of the strong dares invaders to come. Here, no wayfarers may enter without the very soul of this fury-scarred city penetrating their hearts. Here is a rocky bold wolf den set stark against the soft cities of the four winds; Fierce as a Raider with tongue lapping for action, Cunning as a savage pitted against the wilderness, Bareheaded, Shoveling, Wrecking, Planning, Building, breaking, rebuilding, Under the smoke, dust all over his mouth, laughing with white fangs, long tusks, and horns. Under the terrible burden of destiny laughing as a young Orc laughs at death, Laughing even as an ignorant warrior laughs who has never lost a battle, Bragging and laughing that under his wrist is the pulse. and under his canyon ribs the heart of the people, Laughing! Laughing the stormy, husky, brawling laughter of vigor and valor, half-naked, sweating, proud to be Boar Butcher, Maker of armaments, Carver of stone, Life-bound to Lok'tra and the desert's hard seeds.Kormosh0 Jan 15, 2013
Jan 15, 2013 Necromancer? I want to start an undead necromancer character... my ideas are to... Use a death knight starting gear set combination for transmog.... Mage for the frost and use warlock-esque clothing... Warlock with affliction spec... Priest with shadow. What do you guys think? Ideas? And if any of the last three what can I do to make them more like a necromancer? Companion and item and clothing wise? I prefer a caster more than any for good reason. I appreciate all help and suggestions. :)Saigas17 Jan 15, 2013
Jan 14, 2013 Real Assassin RP I am getting sick of people running around saying they are assassins while wearing full assassin gear. Assassins don't do that.... Please wear a disguise or some normal cloths almost at all times. You can have a badass looking get up, but only if you are in private and plan on killing that person, or meeting a fellow assassin. Also please do not go around parading you are an amazing assassin. Guards hate you, and would hang you faster than they would a deathknight, unless you were a deathknight assassin. Anyways, point is please please PLEASE read up on what it is you roleplay. There are many guides on how to role play certain classes successful. If this seems to ranty, I am sorry, I am just giving some key information to those who need it. Thank you.Hicharmour49 Jan 14, 2013

Jan 14, 2013 MG Seems Empty I'm moving my rogue tomorrow to an RP realm. Now it was going to be Moon Guard, but logging on there about twenty minutes ago, it just seemed.. empty. No one outside the Stormwind gates at all, not many people to be seen in the taverns are just around the city in general. Am I missing something? Did all of MG leave or reroll Horde? How is it a full realm yet I see no one. It's as if the population is only the people of Goldshire. Now is there an RP realm that has active, consistent RP? Obviously I will join a guild, but I don't want to HAVE to be in a guild to find RP. I'd like to walk around Stormwind and see people RPing, not just in taverns.Kiminitte20 Jan 14, 2013
Jan 14, 2013 Experts on lore needed...and roleplaying too! Hello all! This is probably my first time in a while posting on this forum, so please bear with me. My concern actually has a lot to do with lore and consistencies, and also some other things concerning "believable characters", but I'll get to that soon. My main issue is this: is it possible for a Gilnean citizen afflicted with the Curse of the Worgen to have any offspring that are now Forsaken? To shed some light on why I am asking this, this character that I am posting with, Setzur, is who I am referring to. When I first created him, I wanted him to have some sort of connection with my many vast Horde characters, as this is my only Alliance character. And so I did some "passable" researching and came up with an idea that, as a human, he'd have children with a noble, but prior to the Wall being built to close off Gilneas, the children would leave the land due to some events going on in their lives, via caravan or something like that, headed for Stormwind or a similar human settlement. What I am not sure is if this is all possible. Currently, I'd have Setzur be around 48 years old, and his children, now forsaken, be around 22-24, slightly older if needed. The reason as to why they are separated is, vaguely, Setzur felt obligated to take care of his ill wife, but, due to their very poor living conditions in the slums of Gilneas and with little money, would opt to save the children by sending them away with people they can trust. Okay, I apologize if my lines of thought are incoherent, but this is my next concern, and it's the character itself. As a human, Setzur (I'm not sure the name is really suitable given his citizenship and location, but I don't like masking player names with MRP, it's just a pet peeve I have) was very shy, weak-minded/emotionally frail and, overall just not a very strong-willed person. I had him assume being born under a noble as well, though he would be disowned near the age of 10 due to his selfish and prideful parents no longer seeing any value or use in raising a child like him. So my issue is, given the passage of time, as a worgen, can he still be as scared and weak-minded but tough as nails when he needs to be? Perhaps it's just a question of realism; I suppose there are people IRL that haven't gotten over life-long problems or things like that, but this character means a lot to me and I want to get it worked out ASAP.Setzur7 Jan 14, 2013

Jan 14, 2013 Let's Roleplay! Sukha the Pandaren I wanted to do something different with World of Warcraft, I had been doing the same old thing and have been skipping quest reading to save time, and thought that recording videos would really help me get a feel for my character and immerse me into the quests through interaction for a change. Admittedly, in hindsight, the background story is very bare bones but it really is my first time getting into role play. I can use these experiences to improve role play as future characters. If you are interested in watching me play and giving me suggestions to improve character development for the future or whatnot, please feel free! :) The video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xpzHxvzw1sSukha0 Jan 14, 2013
Jan 14, 2013 So, I am new to RP I have been contemplating rolling a lock, and am trying to formulate an RP background. I am seeing something along the lines of former mage who delved to deep into the Twisting Nether, and was touched by the Burning Legion. It drove him slightly mad and granted him power, and in the instant of his mandness, he caught a glimpse of what Sargeras was planning. It scarred him mentally, and forced him to up adventuring to thwart the Burning Legion's master plan. Unlike you typical lock, he is a good guy, but calls on demonic energies as a fight fire-with-fire strategy. He is slightly unstable mentally as a result of the temporary madness resulting from touching the Legion, and often mutters to himself in Eredun. So, what do you all think?Woolrange5 Jan 14, 2013

Jan 14, 2013 I wanna start RPing... ...and I don't wanna become one of those people whose MRP ends up on a website/blog making fun of RPers. I know, most people are gonna go "Shut up and RP already, you lazy turd". It's not that easy for most people and it's really not easy for people as shy as me. I feel like I annoy most of my RPer friends, I only asked one and she already seemed all "ugh stop talking" by my third question about this subject. :p I understand lore pretty well but I'm a boring person. I don't know how to write characters very well. I don't even know how to name them. It takes me months of playing a character and imagining them in certain situations for them to be able to develop a personality, and even then I keep seeing all sorts of flaws in them. I'm too scared of becoming a mary sue, but then I try so hard I become an anti sue. And I'm bad at seeing a balance. I'm pretty bad at developing personalities. I feel like I make my characters too much like me, but then I push them to make them nothing like me, and it just feels wrong. For example, I don't particularly like blood elves. When I made a "story" for this toon(I think I'm logged as my priest. My browsers being a poop so I can't see if I am), I decided not to make her like blood elves either. My reason? Well, it didn't seem too unlikely for older trolls and orcs to dislike blood/high elves. That's how racism is taught, isn't it? But when I actually tried executing something like that it felt pretty soulless, and stupid. Am I just overthinking it, and is RP really a lot more simpler than this? >_< I don't know if most people have complex "stories" for their characters, but I feel like I have to because I know I'll spend a long time trying to justify every action my characters make. Like... help? xDBeata15 Jan 14, 2013
