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

Nov 12 New RPer - Is my char idea too out there? Hello! I'm looking to jump into RP in WoW for the first time and I wanted to run an idea by you all before I go too in-depth with it. I know that playing as a "demon" isn't highly regarded, and I don't really want to do that either, but is there still some room for demonic themes? I'm contemplating a fairly complex character who will could undergo some massive changes over the course of their story. I'm imagining a male mage who somehow ends up with a succubus' soul permanently bound to his own. Less demonic possession, more "devil on your shoulder" sort of thing, but this time with a gender mix-match that neither is particularly fond of. The demon's influence won't really come out much to begin with except for that she causes him to be a bit more brutal (The succubi's sadist nature) and to take more chances with the arcane than he likely would have otherwise (Leading to him seeking more power than he probably should). It's more of an interpersonal conflict that he has to struggle with. As time passes, I foresee the succubus becoming more and more fed up with her imprisonment within the mage. The demon can only take control of their shared body for very limited periods of time, and his most dangerous magics are guarded well within his mind. A demon will work with what she has though, and hijacks a transfiguration spell to turn the mage from male to female (Utilizing a race / appearance change). This of course leads into all the antics that come from a gender change and the story continues to progress from there with many of the expected antics and tribulations. However, it's all meant to compliment whatever other stories I'm involved with, never to be the absolute center of attention - a side-story involving a very unfortunate wizard's personal problems as he/she continues to try and fight for Azeroth. Anyway, does this even sound like something that could happen lorewise? Would RPers generally be open to something like this? I like unique ideas, but I don't want something that would be so farfetched as to fall completely outside the lore. Thanks!Larianas9 Nov 12
Nov 12 Legionstrike [Ended] Please note that sign-ups are currently closed. However, character sheets are always welcome for submission as each new mission has the potential for new members, new talents. Hello! So ever since doing the first bits of Legionfall, where subversive agents of the Legion are again mentioned (they crop up now and again during the various class storylines), I've wanted to do something like this. Essentially, my thoughts are that the forces of Azeroth would create a sort of strike team to respond to these threats. Taking missions that would be too delicate for an army, but just right for a group of specialists. Enter Legionstrike. I'm hoping to make various threads different missions, with each one following a storyline to the conclusion of the set goal. This first thread will be a little split, however. The first major bit will be establishing the team. This will be done in front of a panel, composed of Khadgar and the like. Members that have already been accepted can also offer input for consideration when watching applicants' performances. Obviously whoever is accepted in here will be accepted at the end of their trial in the thread. The usual method is trial by combat, proving aptitude against demons in general. However, the participant can offer an alternative showing if they believe it will suitably showcase their skills (i.e. tracking, etc.). The second bit of the thread will consist of their actual first mission as a team. Below is the general character info, I'll be posting mine as well. Please keep in mind general good rules for roleplay when posting: respect posts that came before yours if they somehow alter shared content and aren't unreasonable, use spellcheck, no one/two-liner responses, no god-moding. Thanks, and I hope to stir up enough interest to get this off the ground! Sign-Up Info: Name: Race: Gender: Relative Age: Class or Profession: Speciality (or what role would bring to Legionstrike): Notable equipment or abilities: Brief Summary: My entry: Name: Spellwarden Arlynne Race: Shal'dorei/Nightborne Gender: Female Relative Age: Mature Adult (Approximately three thousand years old, spent in a sealed Suramar) Class or Profession: Mage Speciality (or what role would bring to Legionstrike): Tactician Notable equipment or abilities: Suffused with the raw power that flows through most nightborne, Arlynne can bend natural laws within reason. Her true talent, however, lies in wards and shielding. The caster prefers a well-prepared, reactive approach, favoring a plan for every feasible circumstance over rushing in with spells blazing. Her robes and various accoutrements are well-tuned to the flow of magic, and serve as amplifying conduits to most of her spellwork. Her staff, with a carved head of pure ancient mana, serves as a strong focus that ties all of her equipment together. Brief Summary: Arlynne spent countless years under the false sky of Suramar, each day passing as the last while blissfully unaware of the outside world. She enjoyed her life well enough, and took to studying the finer details of magic when she came of age. She had aspirations of joining the ranks of the Nighthold's arcanists, and was well on her way when the Legion returned. Though unsure of the exact situation, Arlynne found Elisande's dealings with the demons unsavory, but was wise enough to hold her tongue lest she be exiled. She knew that banishment was to wither. When the insurrection came to free the citizenry of Suramar City, Arlynne gladly joined the ranks of the Nightfallen and offered her services wherever possible. Eventually she came to receive the fruit of the arcan'dor, freeing her from the merciless grip the Nightwell held over all shal'dorei. Now truly capable of following her own passions, the magister has been offered a most intriguing proposition: one that will let her truly make a difference in the war against the Legion...Arlynne270 Nov 12
Nov 10 Plagueshifters I'm very curious about roleplaying a Plagueshifter on my Druid. Currently, she is a Tauren, which fits the bill perfectly. I've since faction changed most of my characters to Alliance, her being the last. Would a Worgen Druid as a Plagueshifter be too weird/farfetched? I know there is a Night Elven one in EP. The other few are all Tauren.Rainstorm7 Nov 10
Nov 10 RP Servers? Veteran at wow, but wanna RP. Which server should I go too?Pyrae24 Nov 10
Nov 10 Taurens need clan names As you can see, I am a Tauren. My people are close to nature, and identify closely with their family and tribe. However, despite being a hero, and champion of my people, I do not belong anywhere. I am clanless, and cannot look to my forebears for strength and inspiration. All the Taurens I meet are part of a clan, all are associated clearly by their clan name. I have no clan name. Am I too wild-born and uncultured to be a part of a clan?Narqfalqua2 Nov 10
Nov 9 Advice on Horde RP Howdy all, been considering switching my DK over to Horde and checking out the RP activity on other servers because as nice and tight knit alliance RP is on my server, horde RP is kinda dead and as a lore lover, iv missed RPing on Horde...so i have two questions to you all What RP servers does the community recommend for active horde RP? As much as id love to be a neutral knight of the ebon blade and have the option of being a human walking among the horde, a race/faction change is needed...and im leaning more to Orc/Tauren. So from those two options, im trying to research more of how a Tauren/Orc Dk would fit into their respective races culture as well as the Horde as a whole. thank you in advance :DKristiara19 Nov 9
Nov 9 Children of Goldrinn; An Allied Race Concept This is purely fanon and a creative outlet I wished to share with everyone! Please be sure to read all parts before offering critiques/feedback! I posted this on General Discussion but of due to the fresh announcements, this was quickly buried so I brought it here. Lore Overview - During the War of the Satyrs, a desperate band of Druids lead by Ralaar Fangfire sought to use the forbidden form in order secure victory. In desperate times, the Druids of the Pack invoked upon their forbidden pack form which came to be known as the first worgen and rushed into battle. To the Kaldorei's dismay, the worgen tear through friend and foe alike. The fury of Goldrinn coursed through them as they lost their humanity to their pack form, becoming more and more savage as time went on. As the Pack continued tearing blindly into battle, the affliction onto the Kaldorei spread, them too becoming worgen. With a heavy heart, Malfurion banished these worgen into the Emerald Dream for thousands of years. In another recent time of desperation, the sentinel Velinde Starsong petitioned the goddess Elune for aid. Granting her the ancient Scythe of Elune, Velinde called upon the ancient worgen from the Dream to drive back the demons that infiltrated Felwood. There came a time when even with the Scythe, she could not control the worgen. These worgen later sought out into different parts of Azeroth, including the Eastern Kingdoms. Velinde was not the only one able to summon worgen. The infamous wizard known as Arugal had also done so successfully and like Velinde, he was unable to control them. Over the years, many of these original worgen were either killed, captured, or banished back into the Emerald Dream where many others still remained. One thing was certain, their curse had indeed continued to spread and whether a human or night elf was afflicted, all were effected by the Scythe of Elune. The Druids of the Pack now known as the Druids of the Scythe could not ignore it's call as the Scythe was made from the fang of Goldrinn, the wolf ancient merged with the Staff of Elune. In wake of Teldrassil's destruction, Malfurion awakens the remaining ancient worgen and convenes with the other surviving ancient worgen that had roamed for many years upon Azeroth. Using the Scythe of Elune, he helps these worgen regain their humanity, granting them mastery over their pack form, proclaiming them as Children of Goldrinn. What are the Children of Goldrinn? Children of Goldrinn are night elves who were either once Druids of the Pack/Scythe or one who was afflicted by one of these druids during the War of the Satyr. It is possible that when Velinde Starsong called upon her worgen, that there were more night elven victims that were afflicted by this curse, say someone that got too close to the Howling Vale. Due to their Kaldorei origin, they are much more attuned to the callings of Goldrinn and Elune, simply unable to refuse. With their humanity restored by Malfurion with his usage of the Scythe, these cursed night elves learn what had happened to the very home they risked everything for. Enraged, these eager elves seek to rejoin their kin and fight for the Alliance, wishing to avenge their home. For a video that explains more of the story in detail: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g16o4StVggY Classes Available Druid, Hunter, Priest, Rogue, Warrior Racials Two Forms - Just like our beloved worgen, Children of Goldrinn will get Two Forms. The only difference is is that the Children's humanoid form will be a night elf instead. Shadowstalker - User gains 30% movement speed and stealth for 3 seconds. Within those 3 seconds, player may activate Shadowstalker again to pounce on her prey, dazing enemy for 2 sec. 2 Minute Cooldown. Running Wild - Drop to all fours to run as fast as a wild animal. Savage Hunter - Experience gained from killing humanoids increased by 5%. Dominance - Increases mastery by 1%. Elune’s Wrath - Reduces Nature damage taken by 1% and Nature damage dealt is increased by 1%. Class Perks! Edited 11/8/2017: Druid TRAVEL, FERAL, GUARDIAN Forms - Instead of the traditional cat/bear, a Child of Goldrinn druid uses her mastery of her pack form to fight as an actual wolf instead. When in Guardian spec, the druid becomes a much larger wolf that is the size of a bear. To differentiate cat form and travel form, the travel form could have a shimmering aura around it. (Unique models with different colored furs that are based off the main worgen form.) This is purely based off the Ralaar Fangfire and Arvell's "pack forms" from the Cursed of the Worgen Comic Series by Blizzard.Wolfie9 Nov 9
Nov 9 Looking for Partner Hello all. I am looking for someone to rp out some leveling and enjoy the content with a partner. I have characters on MG and WRA both who are in need of friends. Peinei here just hit 100 and would love a warrior, paladin, or a fellow priest or mage or Shaman, anyone who might like to travel through the Broken Isles with some rp to spice it up! I also have Hunters, and a couple of DKs and even a few Demon Hunters who would love to join with a companion. I am easy going and not too crazy on my ideas. Pacific time zone and usually on in afternoons to late night/early morning hours.Peinei0 Nov 9

Nov 8 Feral Worgen? What are some feral Worgen groups other than the Bloodfang and the Sons of Argual? I've wanted to roleplay a feral worgen whom isn't a main member of the groups, but other than the aforementioned I can't seem to find any other groups. There's gotta be at least one other, right?Kellikagos3 Nov 8
Nov 8 Duel for Lordaeron (BoA Fanfic) Writer's Note: This is a story I thunk up today after watching the Battle for Azeroth trailer (which was epic). This is in no way canonical, just a personal imagination of how a very specific battle would be met out between the leaders of the Alliance and Horde. If you have any feedback, I'd love to hear it. (Or read it I guess).Rakorian5 Nov 8
Nov 7 Orc Roleplay Hello, Wondering if anyone else feels the same way here. I'm currently leveling an Orc Shaman on Wyrmrest Accord and so far I'm really digging the vibe they have. Their models, animations, Durotar, and the Horde RP/guilds all seem very active. My problem is...I can't help but feel like I'm playing the "bad guy", so to speak. I wanted to roll this character as a sort of throwback to my Warcraft 3 days, where Orcs were seen as the "noble savages" to be taken seriously and who had a code of honor. Yet...the last few years (MoP and WoD), it seems that has all been thrown out the window according to Blizzard. Most NPCs in questing seem like they are just irrationally bent on destruction and aggression, and it's pretty off-putting. I don't mind my character having flaws, but being pigeonholed into a role I don't gravitate towards wasn't what I had in mind. Kind of thinking about switching to Alliance again as a result. Has anyone faced immersion difficulties with Orcs in this same way? Is it still possible for me to RP my Orc Shaman a-la Warcraft 3 without being shunned in the RP community? Curious to hear thoughts and input here. Thanks!Syldathos7 Nov 7
Nov 7 Best Sever for Alliance besides MG and WRA? Hello everyone, I hope everyone is having a wonderful Blizzcon. My question is, what are the severs besides Moon Guard and Wyrmrest Accord have a decent alliance population? I am interested in alliance rp, however I don't like having both factions on the same sever. Thank you :)Váleriá9 Nov 7
Nov 7 Nightbourne Lore questions Hey there folks, So, since Nightbourne are coming out to play as apart of BfA, I'm mostly curious if there was anymore lore I might of missed concerning the in-game quest lines. Mostly, I was wondering how it might be for a warrior or other martially strong character might thrive in a society of a race who has pretty much mastered the arcane. Although, I'm wondering if its maybe too early to post about such things, but I'd figure I'd ask anyways!Amryth2 Nov 7

Nov 6 probably a common question but I am kind of meh on most of the current stuff and want to try some roleplaying. I am thinking alliance since i only have horde toons..... well i got a couple single digit levels to try to get things like white kitten but those dont count to me. So any advice on what servers to go to or avoid for roleplaying? maybe that has a newbie roleplaying guild or something?Kurnzdor1 Nov 6
Nov 5 Worgen using weapons Hey guys! So I am coming back to WoW after a long break and decided I want to start completely fresh and RP for the first time. I really want to play a Worgen Warrior. The only problem I am having is finding an explanation for why Werewolves are using weapons. Can someone please talk me through this lol.Durzar23 Nov 5
Nov 5 Dwarf girl name Decided to make a female dwarf warlock because I'm a filthy snowflake like that. Not sure on the name though. Which do you like better? Irmhilde or Jenhild? Both are real(ish) old Norse names. EDIT: or "Jenhilde". The addition of the 'e' means it's no longer authentic but if it looks better it looks better.Kolbjörn6 Nov 5
Nov 4 New to RP and need help! Hey guys! Just have a few questions and could use some help! I'm extremely new to writing a RP. I have a drawing tablet to add some art into my story. I'm using this to kind of help me with my depression. I'm really struggling and I am using this to cope. I will be joining WrA server and actively participating, but i want to write down my adventures, and my back story. 1. Is there an active RP Community I could join on Discord? A sanctuary that can help with writing and just help me transition into the community? You can send it to my discord name listed at the bottom. 2. I need some references to read up on night elf and druid lore from wow. Possibly hunter lore too. Books on the subject and history of the night elves, druids, and Ysera are a huge plus. Wikis would be awesome as well. I'm not sure where to start. 3. Is there a do/dont's to RP and joining on a server? 4. Best Addons to Use? Any help would be much appreciated it. My discord is Kikyo#2365. I'm not looking to disrupt, just looking for help. Also, some of the links do not exist anymore in the welcome stickies. :) *note: ErP is NOT an option, so dont send me that stuff, thanks*Aydriella2 Nov 4
Nov 3 Struggling to Find RP On both Moon Guard and Wyrmrest Accord, on Alliance and Horde respectively, finding public RP has been a nightmare for me personally - for almost two years now. I don't know if the community has significantly changed at all between now and the beginning of 2016, and I've accepted at this point that all forms of public RP occur in Cathedral Square/Mage District/Lion's Rest and the Valley of Honor/Silvermoon City, but I still can't seem to succeed. Granted, I tend to play heavily introverted characters, and more often than not rely on walk-up RP more than anything else, but things seem more dull than ever in this community that I've been a part of for over five years now. There always seems to be either a limited amount of people within the aforementioned RP hubs, or they're grouped up in such a manner that it doesn't seem very appropriate to approach them (they're either within a guild or just a tightly-knit group of friends). And hell, I've approached strangers before and had them just flat-out walk away in response. Is this really just how the RPC is these days? Are guilds the only way to get anything meaningful in terms of an RP experience?Vezsar8 Nov 3
Nov 3 [H-RP] Guild Recruitment: Yīngsù Village Yīngsù Village lies hidden in the mountains of Pandaria, South of Kun Lai, West of the Jade Forest, and North of the Valley of the Four Winds. It is a rocky, windswept and remote place, where few crops grow and the nights are cold. Like rubbish blown in the wind, drifters, thieves and renegades have made their way to the Village over the centuries, and calling it their home. To survive, they offer their services, ever discreetly, to the towns and cities below, trading knife-work and smuggling for rice and solitude. Whether by birth or adoption, the inhabitants of this secret place are members of a family. A family with customs, which must be obeyed, for the safety of the town and its people. For life in Yīngsù Village is frail and fleeting, but made stronger by bonds of blood and iron. ________________________ Yīngsù Village is a roleplay guild on Hordeside Wryrmest Accord, devoted to deep, interpersonal story, based on themes of interdependence, honor, crime and ethics. We are inspired loosely by legends of Ninja and Brigand villages in Japan and throughout Asia, who were said to have eked out a living in remote, barren places, and survived by the sword and subterfuge when they could not grow enough food or command enough respect. We welcome mature, even-keeled roleplayers who have a strong distinction between In-Character and Out-Of-Character, who are willing to engage in emotionally difficult but immensely rewarding stories. With a strong “Play to Lose” mentality, we recognize that the best tales often have sad endings, but are more memorable for it, and that power comes at a great cost. We have a low-key, friendly OOC culture, keep each other company on Discord throughout the day, and have a robust sense of humor. Though we are barely a week old, we already have enjoyed RP, PVP and PVE with one another, and plan to eventually run small raids, mythics and BGs. It's been a wonderful experience, meeting my new guild mates. Please Note: While we DO take non-Pandaren, roleplay explanations are required, and we are much more interested in Pandaren at this time. Beyond race, we are interested in anyone who has a real interest in Pandaria, the lore, the themes and our guild concept, and wants to play it straight with us.

Nov 2 Adopting another race? Because of children's week. (one of my favorite events in-game.) I often wondered how often do people adopt young children In lore; especially those of a different race. Despite being born one one race. Could lets say, two human parents take care of a draenei child? Even if she does out live them, could they provide her with a decent enough family upbringing. What about gnomes or dwarves adopting human children or vice versa. Orcs adopting and raising blood elf kids, or raising troll children...etc.Tavias14 Nov 2

Oct 30 How do you deal with death I have always been very involved in role playing, and it always caused me a problem. It might come from the fact that I am a little OCD on things that are irrelevant. Death in Wow is one example. The only characters that I can play in Wow and invest in are characters that I can explain why I still play even if they died several times. For example : My warlock has a soulstone, he cannot die My Demon hunter goes back to the nether, so he comes back At the extreme limit I can pretend to myself that my hunter feigned death. But with the other characters, I have trouble living with the freaking death counter ( why do blizzard puts a counter in there that when people look at my character, they see that I died 32 times ???? ) Why am I still there ? I certainly was not rezzed 32 times and its completely inexplicable in any other fashion. I always wonder what use that counter had. Life for me and for others who feel like me would be so much simpler of the counter was not there, we could pretend our character never died...yet. Now all of those hours invested in the backstory of that character, I was thrilled to get him through endgame and role playing him a lot with my friends, but a random group pulled the whole BRD and we wiped, so I am not really interested in the character anymore. Its pretty weird because I know that if I raid or PvP I will die, but I guess it would be better for me if Wow treated defeat like LOTR and the game mentionned that you just retreated from combat. Anyhow, it was just a little rant, would really like to see the death counter disappear unless someone as a real use for that. Cheers all, happy gaming!Hansem16 Oct 30
Oct 29 Army of the Light (RP) When Turalyon and Alleria crossed the portal with the Sons of Lothar, did any of them got recruited by Xe'ra, or was it just Turalyon and Alleria?. Lore says the Army of the Light is composed of survivors of worlds that the Burning Legion has scourged. Was there any humans elsewhere than on Azeroth? They specifically states human being part of the army, but are they refering to those from Azeroth? I want to start and roleplay a paladin, soldier of the army, but I am wondering if I need to make it a Draenei. Thanks allHansem4 Oct 29
Oct 28 Immortal Blood Elves now lore? Listened to the new mini drama about the thousand years of war today and I noticed it stated in the first part that the Elves of Silvermoon were basically immortal in regard to age due to the sun well. I know most consensus has been that blood elves lived long lives usually a couple hundred years. Does that mean the lore has changed or just been set straight? I also know Sunstrider had lived millennia though most always said due to him being a mage. Discussion on proper blood elven age limits would be good so people don't get trolled.Bliazer20 Oct 28

Oct 24 It's a jungle in here. (Open Tavern RP) [As someone thinking of rolling up a Toon on an rp server, I wanted to come test the waters. The purpose of this post is to create an Open Tavern RP with some good hooks to engage people. Every character mentioned in this post can be considered "staff," feel free to god mode them, name them, put words in their mouth, w/e. Just pay attention to what other posters do first! My character will enter in next post. I highly encourage any other lurkers to get involved and post, especially if you are a first time poster like me.] Deep in the jungle of Stranglethorn, just off the main road that cuts its way north through the cape, is a clearing marked by a ring of ancient moss covered stumps. Tonight a roaring fire burns at the ring’s center, and a piebald group of travelers make an impromptu camp; Quickly spotted from the road, a conspicuously festooned wagon with one broken axel sports a brightly colored banner that reads, “Lester’s Libations,” (complete with a grinning goblin’s portrait). The well-dressed proprietor, conversely, grimaces as he slings drinks from the back of his off-kilter conveyance. His largest group of patrons, a team of dirty dwarves from the nearby Explorer’s League digsite, don’t seem to mind as the mugs slide down to their level across the uneven wagon’s bar. They joke and rib each other as they knock back flagon after flagon from the Goblin’s taps. Behind them, at the fire, a jolly tauren tends an impressive array of kebobs roasting on the fire. His gun all but forgotten beside him, he eagerly regales a bored looking orc on exactly how he nabbed each of the jungle fruit and fowl of tonight’s dinner. The orc listens to the tauren, but he watches a wounded human who has taken up a spot opposite the fire from the pair. This woman, her leg dressed well but with signs of blood poking through the bandages, sits atop a stump and plays a light hearted tune on a fiddle. The heavy gauntlets of her plate mail cast aside so that her fingers can more quickly manipulate the strings. Her song seems to bounce between the hearts of the growing crowd and newcomers to the gathering soon find themselves tapping their foot and forgetting who exactly handed them this skewer of mango and meat. Above it all though, in the crystal clear night air, the specter of Argus eclipses the moons of Azeroth.Gralltusk200 Oct 24

Oct 23 Enter Legionstrike [Closed] ((OOC/Sign-Up thread can be found here: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20755766714)) Arlynne inhaled deeply, the soft breeze ruffling any stray locks of her long lavender hair. It was chilled, this high in the air, and carried the distinct tang of brimstone. After all, the Tomb of Sargeras towered over the nearby Broken Shore, dominating the skyline as it looked to pierce the heavens themselves with its sickly glow of fel green. The shal'dorei frowned briefly at the sight, stood as she was upon Krasus' Landing. While she would have enjoyed looking in the other direction toward her home, the view of Suramar was blocked by the high walls of Dalaran. She could envision it easily, however. After all, she had spent the past three thousand years walking its streets, learning every nook and cranny. Every shopkeep. Her favorite activity when not practicing arcanistry had been trying to find hidden spots that she'd never seen before. If she had learned anything from spellwork, it was that the more you learned the less you knew. Nothing was ever truly as it seemed. Ever since the success of the insurrection and the overthrow of Grand Magistrix Elisande, Arlynne had embraced the freedom that the amazing fruit of the arcan'dor had granted her. No longer did she feel the omnipresent link to the Nightwell, its tendrils of power woven through the very fiber of her being, lording over her should she ever resist its call for too long. No, now she was free to walk her own path. Immediately she had come to Dalaran after upholding her duties to the Nightfallen, interested in seeing what an entire floating city of mages had to offer. Quite a lot, was the answer. It was amazing how one’s own perceptions expanded with fresh viewpoints, especially after thousands of years being taught by shared principles born of absolute seclusion. It turned out the Kirin Tor, the Magisters and the others were just as interested in Arlynne’s magic as she was in theirs. While still firmly rooted in arcane phenomena, she’d managed to broaden her spellcasting into the schools of frost and arcane. In turn, she shared her knowledge of warding and barriers, telemancy and spacetime manipulation. Her short time in Dalaran had turned out to be very fruitful. Lost as she was in her thoughts, staring into the felstorm hovering ominously above them all, she nearly failed to notice as a deeply-cowled mage approached from the entryway into the city proper. Allowing herself a small polite smile, the nightborne turned to face her visitor. “Spellwarden Arlynne,” the man said stoically, foregoing any pretense of introductions. “I have been sent to fetch you.” “Fetch me?” the arcanist echoed in confusion, effervescent gaze narrowed slightly in curiosity. “Whatever for? I was told there were no advanced classes being taught in the halls this afternoon.” “You’ll see,” was the simple response as the man turned and began walking steadily back the way he’d come. With a small shrug and hum, Arlynne gave the Broken Shore one last glance before turning to follow the messenger. A personal summons had to indicate something interesting, after all. She would do well to keep busy, lest she ruminate her entire day away.Arlynne113 Oct 23

Oct 18 Mak'gora questions. First off, can somebody just declare it on somebody else for whatever reason, or does it have to be for leadership? Secondly, is fighting a Mak'gora within the city limits allowed(outside of arenas)? I feel like even though orcs are savages, even they would understand dead bodies from Mak'goras would be far more sanitary in an arena or outside the walls.Feight3 Oct 18
Oct 18 The Chanter's Riddle (Ongoing Event) (For exhilirating story-building purposes only! Event is IC, news distributor here is considered OOC! Please do not abuse the purpose of this forum and come enjoy a grand story in-the-making!) Throughout the streets of Stormwind, citizens and law enforcement alike have come across bewitched personnel with red markings held within their eyes, endlessly chanting pieces of a building statement. So far the chanters have been benign and harmless towards the public, despite the situations getting out of hand by outside force, causing damage and harm to all those that would attempt to interrupt the chant. The information, collected by Starbishop Breel, have been as follows: Verse 1: “Foiled in the dream...I see only the Dream...and in lies darkness.” Verse 2: “Foiled in the dream...I see only the Dream...and in lies darkness. In the darkness...lies your antithesis...and your salvation…" Verse 3: Coming Soon! Verse 4: Coming Soon! Final Verse: Coming Eventually! What could this mean, and what will the remainder of the chant reveal? What else, besides the Legion, is lying underfoot the people of Stormwind? And what's to keep it from spreading to other cities? Keep a watch out for these strange occurrences after dark and stick around for the News[B]reel @9pm Server on Moon Guard (A)! (Strictly OOC: For questions, please contact Kardrion or Ysondran!)Ysondran0 Oct 18
Oct 18 The Beautiful Destroyer (Short Story) Kil'jaeden's cloven hooves clicked against the glass floor as he made his way deeper into the hall. All around him, soldiers watched his approach. Their three-eyed faces viewed him with mingled curiosity and bemusement. Some thought him a foolish madman, others a wise scholar. Kil’jaeden did not care for either opinion. The thoughts and concerns of mortals were trivial matters. Feeling the many eyes of the palace guards upon him, he quickened his steps, hurrying along at a near-run. He had been portraying a skittish man these last ten years, a man who would never grow accustomed to the presence of others. Pulling his long, flowing robe about him, Kil’jaeden averted his gaze and pressed forward. A low, soft chant echoed through the winding halls of the Mirror-Palace, a somber tune sung by men with deep-throats and tuneless voices. The sound was like that of a funeral dirge, and Kil’jaeden found himself humming along with the unseen choir. The song was meant to be the harbinger of Malkadek, Mirror King of the North-Round, a joyous occasion for the people of Jadarath, but Kil’jaeden found a deeper meaning in the music. The darkness was coming. Following the path down the hall, Kil’jaeden eventually found himself stepping into a wide, circular room set in the heart of the palace. Much like the rest of the great castle, the floor was made from reflective glass, and in this room, the same was the case for the ceiling. If Kil’jaeden looked either up or down, he would have seen himself spiral into countless infinities, reflected back and forth by an almost-paradoxical loop of mirrors. For that reason, he kept his eyes straight forward. Nine figures sat in the back of the room, seated upon thrones of black stone. They wore robes of deep purple, with orange circlets on their heads and swords sheathed at their sides, all except the man in the centermost chair. Malkadek, King of the North-Round and Lord of Jadarath, was an impressive figure in his own right. As a Jadaran, he was a humanoid figure composed wholly of skin like the glass of a mirror. His hands, teeth, nose, muscles, all were made of the same reflective glass. He was a powerful-looking man, strong and fit despite his great age, and his eyes were like sapphire jewels in a regal, yet somber face. He was dressed in emerald robes, and a metal crown shaped to resemble one made of feathers sat atop his head. An iron scepter rested in his lap, and he drummed his fingers against it as Kil’jaeden approached. Kil’jaeden saw himself reflected in nine different men, the King and his Council, as he bowed before the thrones. The majority of Kil’jaeden’s body was concealed by a heavy, grey robe, but his face poked through the thick cloth. His flesh was red as blood, and two tentacles grew from either cheek, falling down to his barrel-chest. Between these was a small white beard situated beneath a tall, narrow head. His nose was long, his mouth firm, and his eyes green as poison. His forehead was a towering thing of hardened plates, from which two tiny horns sprouted, marbled black and brown. “My Great Lords,” he began, remaining prostrate. His voice was soft, timid. “This humble one thanks you for giving me audience.” “Long have I wished to meet you, wanderer,” said the king, in a rich, booming voice that echoed back down the halls, briefly smothering the chants of the distant choir. “I've heard tales of your miracles from countless subjects, and they sing praises of your great wisdom. Now that I look upon your face,” the King leaned forward, a smile on his almost-metallic features, “I can see why they call you the Beautiful One.” "You flatter me,” Kil’jaeden replied, flashing a smile filled with pointed teeth. The Beautiful One was his most favorite of titles, bestowed upon him long before he'd left the primitive ways of Argus behind. It made him feel clever, and he liked feeling clever. “Yet I did not come here to receive compliments, nor give them. The tidings I bring are grim, your Majesty.” “I've heard dark whispers among my people,” the Jadaran king said, tone equally curious and disapproving. “Wherever you go, darkness follows in your wake, as does fear. Yet you heal the sick, sing to the people, and inspire them to rally in my name. You are a creature of great mystery, Kil’jaeden, and I would hear what you have to say.” “My message is the same as it always been,” Kil’jaeden said, remaining in his kneeling position, eyes downcast. These men already believed him, he knew. Now he needed to gain their trust. “A darkness lurks in the universe, and it hungers to consume all life. It is a terrible river of destruction, devouring anything in its path. It destroyed my world, and if it is not stopped, it will do the same to yours.”Vrak7 Oct 18

Oct 17 Balancing RP and PvE/etc. Hello everyone! I have a question for the community. How do you balance RP with the PvE/PvP/Etc. elements of the game? I am still fairly new to RP in game having come from playing strictly PvE and raiding for many years. I am really enjoying RP, especially community events, but my main inclination is still to play the PvE aspect of the game if there is no event happening. I'm finding it hard to devote the time to seeking out RP, or a guild to RP with, mostly because I still want to continue to progress in PvE, professions, dailies, etc. Since those take time, I usually end up logging out when I finish, because there might not be enough time left for me to then seek out RP before I have to go. So I wanted to ask- how do you balance your game play and RP? Do you have a schedule you follow? Or do you use another tool to RP (like the forums)?Amaraithea3 Oct 17
Oct 17 Roleplaying a Half elf? I'm wondering how to roleplay a Half-Human, half elf. Mainly, I would really like it if someone could answer my questions. Which is more acceptable, half high elf or half night? Which race would be preferable, Night Elf, Blood, Or Human? Is there any class that would benefit most from half elven heritage? What is a good way to roleplay a half elf? I'm not really a roleplayer, never had the chance and I would really like some tips. Thanks, in advance.Flimdor48 Oct 17
