2h General RP chat #39; Elves are people too! Carrying on: ... That I can grasp as they lose some of what they were as they grow. There was an original, often idolized image that changed far beyond first impressions. My objection is that this happens universally as storylines advance and the narrative demands more from the actors involved. They could not remain isolationist in a changing world and fighting the scourge/demons put such a dent in their numbers that the cenarion gender barriers had to go. Again I struggle to see how night elves suffer uniquely from lore developments. Well, aside from losing some of their vauge WC3 image. My impression of them remains as a unique culture with a special relationship with the living world and the "gods" of the setting. They're no less primal than they were. Maybe we focus on and enjoy different things about them? I think they're way too special and distinct to be dismissed as filler or purple humans. And like I said, I don't regard playable night elf/highborne mages to be irredeemable heresy given the appropriate buildup and context it received. That, and I forget what exactly made night elves matriarchal in a rigid sense. It's a lingering trope I often see played up by RPers that benefit from it (priestesses, amazonian sentinels) when my memories are dominated by segregation rather than supremacism. That, however is its own lengthy debate... As for silly questlines or voice acting killing the race lore, I don't think it does. Trolls aren't ruined forever by zen'kiki flopping around on the ground in seal form and humans remain a thing despite entire quest zones being pop culture references.Marinya93 2h
2h The bad guys I've been thinking. What if we're actually, unknowingly the bag guys in the confrontation versus the Burning Legion. What if the Sargeras's motive is to save the Universe by destroying worlds infected by the Void Lords which are presumed more powerful than the titans. What if by destroying the burning legion we end up opening a can of worms bigger and nastier than we imagine and the last fight of the raid instead of killing Sargeras we end up purifying him or making him less mad so to say.Aevti11 2h
3h Requesting comments on my story Hello! I've never ever done RP before. I wanted to try out RP and have a character that feels unique, but isn't too challenging as I've found RP interaction to be pretty intimidating for some reason. So I've been RPing as a Moonkin who can't speak. I communicate trough gestures and I enjoy the fact that I can just spectate the events, rather than have a big part in them. At least for now. However, in a short period of time I've managed to progress my character's story and I'm just loving every bit of it. It feels like I'm writing a book that's based on semi-true story and it has co-writers as people who I meet go along with it. I've taken the habit of writing down every time something sort of big happens, that progresses my character's story in some sort of way and I keep it all in my XRP profile for others to see. I'm not a writer, but I enjoy writing down what has happened so it feels like a full story and that my character has actual history. It's a bit wall of text, but I appreciate it if you have time to read it. Thanks! The story: http://i.imgur.com/2X6Nx0v.png (EDIT: I downloaded TRP3 instead of XRP and added the story into it, and improved the by not using the same words too often, phrasing and paragraphing)Pawless7 3h
3h 2h axe suggestions? Hey, so I'm looking for suggestions for a 2h axe tmog for my Dwarf warrior. I'm looking for something simple, nothing too overly complicated, and looks dwarven in design. Something simple but affective. Any suggestions would be welcome, thanks.Matemaeous4 3h
4h What triggers your character? #1 "FOR THE LAST TIME I DON'T WANT HELP!", getting dragged forcefully along, squirming and screaming in anger, frowning as she is helped with a simple task.Bravespartan114 4h
4h Rate the name of the person above you! #7 Character limits, yo. Since I made the last post in the old thread I'll make the new one. Saramisya TruestrikeSaramisya352 4h
9h What would your character say to the above poster? #22 (There is still things to be said, people!) To Uruk: "Eat them? That is barbaric!...Though, if seasoned..." The tauren pauses for a bit. "MUST STOP SAYING THINGS LIKE THIS!"Ategami150 9h
12h Demons allowed in Silvermoon murder row? So, I am wondering it is acceptable for a warlock to have his/her demon walking around the murder row. I mean Keyanomir an NPC walk's around openly with his Succubus following him? So is it acceptable, would I run into any trouble if I did do this? I am also told by a friend and a Guild leader saying they wouldn't see a problem with it since it is the Murder row and I would be near the Sanctum.Malthèrion15 12h
18h Can the Forsaken males have an errection? They are kind of dead. Wich means they have no body fluids. Which means no !@#$%. Or am I missing something?Kálmánka52 18h
1d How would your character kill the one above? #10 *Yabu teleports nearby Xirque* *Stretching his hand, and charging a ball of Fire, Ice and Arcane.* Whispering a powerful spell: Kaaa.....meeee.....haaa.....mee............HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA *The energy beam is so massive, powerful and fast, Xirque is totally obliterated by the extreme dangerous power of Yabu.* *With his job finished, the mighty Yabu teleports himself away.*Yabu181 1d
1d Naming Hi lads, I'm actually not sure if this is the correct place for this post but I suppose you'd know better than I what's going on.. I just returned after mid Cataclysm and I'm wondering if they changed the naming policy on RP/RPPvP servers? I know the actual definitions have been changed a bit and people are looking for clarification, but the required lore-friendly naming policy is still in place, isn't it? On Defia's I've seen a lot of 'Imhunterlol' 'Ikilludead' 'Frostitute' sort of names and I'm pretty sure that's never been allowed. I know it was bad in Cata, but it seems even worse now. So, did this change and I can't find any info on it or do we just not have any GMs that care anymore? (Surely everyone RPing is in a guild these days and one can just ignore these people but it's a bit immersion breaking, really..) Enjoy yourselves!Ilnaz3 1d
1d Questions from a new RP'er. Hello there. I am trying to get into RP, I have been playing the game for around 10 years and I love the lore. I have read up on a lot of roleplaying guides, looked up archives and so on. But I do have some questions that I hope somebody could help me with. 1. Fighting in a RP setting? I guess people don't usually duel in RP fights? do the like just stand up against eachother and /roll? Please elaborate. 2. At like inns and bars and other like events when real people playing characters "sell" food and drinks. Do you have to like pretend to get an item or do you actually get one? and do you pay or pretend to pay? 3. When in a racial event and a non "your race" comes around, how should one react to this? 4. Any other "should have" addons except like TRP3? 5. How does public event work? I saw some on the right hand side of the argent archives. Is this events that anyone can participate in? 6. Should whispers go automaticly in character or OOC? and if whispering ooc, do you have to use (()) ? 7. Logging out when doing RP / events etc? Do you gotta find a bed or something? 8. Do you stay in character all the time when doing stuff with like a RP guild? During dungeons, pvp? or only when you are really RPing? Thats my questions so far. I don't know, maybe some are silly. Feel free to elaborate on each questions if you have anything to add / tips. Thanks!Therilasa7 1d
1d Moonglaive Appearance. Will it happen? Come on... I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one dreaming of being able to transmog a Moonglaive for RP purposes. Why have they not added it yet..Naiyell2 1d
1d Your last day on WoW.. Sargeras blows up EVERYTHING!, perma server shut down in 24hrs. How do you spend your last day?Ðeáth20 1d
1d Your character's equipment I mean: Lore-wise, obviously. Does your toon carry something special with it, that emphasizes it's story/ is of special importance to it? A piece of gear? A keepsake? Or even a companion? Not sure if I'm getting across what I want to say. So I'll just start off with Ronaeriel: Sunherald* - Ron's greatsword. He forged in Northend with the help of a dwarf from the Argent Crusade. Silvermoon cloak - Recently given to him by no other than Lady Liadrin Ron is immensely proud on this piece of clothing Daylight** - His trusty steed. Ron bought her from a Forsaken merchant in the Western Plague land, preventing her from being killed and risen as a skeleton. Pair of enchanted bonds - Given to him by the remnants of the Aldor on Outland and blessed by the Naaru. His brother Arau'Khas wears the counterpart to these bonds. They bind the brothers together and - when push comes to shove - provide Ron with a way to forcefully curb with undead brother. -------------- *Fun fact: I originally planned to name his sword "Eidsucher" (= Oathseeker ). But it turned out, that Blizz had the same idea for the Prot-Pala's sword, so I renamed it. ** 'nother fun fact: This is actually based on a real horse. After school I traveled to New Zealand for a year and among other things worked there for a horsebreaker - Jimmy. When I met Jimmy he had just bought a horse for cheap money, that had already been into consideration for the knacker, a couple weeks ago. So I got to help him break her in. Jimmy's daughter came up with the name "Daylight".Ronaeriel23 1d
1d Gnome Monk A reason why? A gnome Monk??? Why would a gnome become a monk. Took them a hell of a long time to realise that using magic made them priests (Medics) And that using engendering could create clockwork combat pets. And with that they became hunters. (That's how I would write it into my bio for the Priest and Hunter classes). But how or why would a gnome decide to become a monk it not very rational or in my opinion gnome like? I am still prefer the vanilla classes of warrior rouge warlock and mage. The only cool DK are Forsaken, Priests for Human and Hunters for Night Elves or Orcs, This leaving the furry and stupid pandas as monksLittlemajik7 1d
1d Do gnomes swim? The question is simple... Can they swim?Devyx10 1d
1d Help me understand the events please So we have been into WoD in an alternate universe in where Velen sacrificed himself, Groom and Durotan survived etc. Then the Legion has attacked our world. Gul'dan has been ported out by Archimonde to get to the Tomb of Sargeras. All was going well to my understanding until I have been sent to Exodar to help Prophet Velen. Weren't we supposed to be living an alternative timeline because you know we have kinda disrupted the history? How can Velen live? It makes no sense to me because once you change something at past, then there should be no exact future where you have come from.Crucifiér10 1d
2d What would you do with the Above Poster? #16 At late night while Cathrion is out, Dakuh breaks into her house, stealing her daggers, blades, jewelery even her scarf. He gets away with it before Cathrion returns, and sells everything to Feenly and co.Dakuh204 2d
2d Worgen and Armor Okay, so i am pretty certain that this has been discussed before.. but i didn't really find anything on the topic, so, i was RPing with my worgen, and we got in a battle with some swashbucklers, when things got bad, i switched to worgen form, however, the DM told me that worgens are supposed to lose their armor once they transform like Greymane does, what is your say on this?Thedraes5 2d
2d Talking while in Druid forms? Is it ok in RP to talk while in Cat form for example or is it against the lore?Ryeth9 2d
2d Rate the appearance of the character above you #8 (And new thread to continue http://eu.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/15161828670?page=26#post-501) ... Here's a picture to show Kahli'wa's more ceremonial outfit. Which also works as my transmog: http://imgur.com/iF56hN3Kahliwa367 2d
2d Freedom for RP outside of cities There are countless threads on RP realms asking "How is the RP on this server?", "Can't find RP", usually answered with "Try the Blue Recluse, I always find something there!" or "Join a guild, most of the RP is happening in guilds!" There is almost 0 chance to find meaningful RP outside of a city. I mean - casual, chance encounter RP. I am out in the world questing, and I got an idea about what my character could do IC . What can I do - to make RP happen, except going back to a Stormwind tavern? I can run around outside the city all day, and find nobody there. And I don't have all day. For this, I proposed in the past a LF RP system, like the LF raid system. People create little announcements about where they are RPing, and people browse and answer those announcements. (No instant teleport to the other player, just a system to allow some sort of easy RP matchmaking) Now I got a better idea: RP map markers. Each player can mark one spot for RP (only one - where he is), with a little icon, visible on the map as long as he is there and logged in. He can also delete the icon. Players seeking RP will be able to see these icons (optional feature), hover the mouse above them and read a little description "Joe the Mage is attacked by murlocs! Assistance needed!" for example. Then - Joe the Mage can roleplay how he escapes the murlocs with the aid of a stranger that was passing by. Or something like that. (Without the map marker no stranger would pass by, or no stranger would even know what Joe is doing there, so no RP would happen...)Krogall5 2d
3d Videos of roleplay events Hello! I've recorded many roleplay events on Argent Dawn EU server, and thought to share them with everyone here. Sadly they're primarily from Alliance side, as that's where my main is. Most of the events on the channel I've organised myself. :) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCY-4DNLbGt_zAqylmMrVFaQ/videos Has anyone else made videos of roleplay events? I've found that often even people who aren't that much into roleplaying can appreciate the time and effort that goes into making something cool-looking in-game, bringing the world to life.Acrona0 3d
4d Master Shang xi from wandering isle :( Ive just got my legendary item, and when i got back to the wandering isle, i was thinking the silly thought of visiting my '' old master'' Shang xi from the starter questline as a pandaren. when i arrived near the forrest of staves i bumped into a wind / fel fire wall blocking my way...... im quite dissapointed that i cant travel there .... anyone else feels this way ?? :)Mojao3 4d

5d Pandaren names - Inspiration/sources and what have you So i've been wanting to try out a pandaren male for a few days now but i'm seemingly stuck staring at that nameplate. I believe where i get stuck is where to look for inspiration. Chinese-sounding names ( or real chinese names ) aside there are honestly more asian languages that i have an equal or higher admiration for, and i have been looking into names in korean and Mongolian aswell. The latter being the strongest candidate for now. I guess another aspect could be that depending on the backstory i could just give him a name that has a Eastern/Kalimdorian-tune to it aswell. So, Pandaren players! I wanna' join your fat and cuddly family and require your input! How did you approach naming your toon? I do intend on making him look rather soft and mellow, going for an altogether not-so-rough look if that helpsMaggotsnout6 5d
5d What would the character above you drop? #1 Shamelessly stealing this from the General Chat because I thought it would be a funny (And hilarious in some ways) idea! So, the gist of this... You just killed the character above you (Somehow) and you go to loot the corpse. What special item does the character have available to loot? As an example... Tethenar kills Astrophel (Sorry dude) and loots his corpse. What does Tethenar find? Astrophel's Head Polish Toy Use: Removes all hair from your head and develops a radiant gleam so you too can have a shiny bald head like Astrophel! So. Shoot!Tethenar252 5d
6d 10 reasons why Tauren are better than Worgen (Nothing serious, I was just bored.) 1. We are the TRUE fuzzies. Yours is just a curse. 2. Tail. We've got it. 3. Shamans. Enuff said. 4. Paladins. Holy Cow just never gets old. 5. A worgen hunter has to be level 70 to get the our special purple plainstrider pet, but level 32 is enough to get a dog. 6. Worgen DK? W00t? 7. Human druid? What? 8. We don't have an urge to howl at full moons. I mean, how subtle is that?? 9. Cheap milk!!! 10. Everyone knows tauren have the best rogues! Never seen one? They are THIS good at hiding! +1.

6d Goblin Last name So my goblin priest sells "real relics" and provides "genuine" exorcisms as well as heals all for a little donation of course, I wanted something quirky and playful for a last name and I was thinking of Glimmerfinger, although maybe I should go for something more serious like Shacklespark?Keezal6 6d
6d ERP, your opinion? Hello my fellow wow players Im going to ask you on your opinion on ERP but before that Im going to have to ask you to consider mine first and before you judge me yes I have practiced ERP with fully consenting partners on realm argrent dawn now before we start the argument about the rules, some will say stick to them and obey them like slaves obey their master and others will act like anarchist. I want to ask you to refrain from using rules and pointing them out for this is a talk about your point of view. Lets look at the in game aspect of it. I agree that harassing someone into ERP should be punishable but why do we the people who do that to pleas ourselves and sometimes make a living (in wow) have to suffer because of that? I see nothing wrong with 2 individuals, both consenting doing what they want to do. I mean if I told you the way you should play your game you would be angry and report me to blizzard for harassment but if we agree to raise a new char together then who is to stop us. Your opinion people?Luksina160 6d

13 Apr Goldshire Encounters (A NEW YOUTUBE SERIES) Hey there, many of you already know that Goldshire on Argent Dawn and Moonglade is infested. In this short series made by myself, it features five main characters. Samuel Wilsen, Lambert Atherton, Adaline Doveing, Thargrin Frostwraught and Father Doug. Please watch them in order as it would make no sense otherwise. This is my first time doing in-game videos, leave a like if you liked the video and let me know if you want more! I had fun making these :) I'm going to link Part 3, just click on my YouTube to find 1 and 2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZD_1L4XeQMwGrathius0 13 Apr
12 Apr Folk songs for Azaroth. Hello everyone! I originally started this thread on the Moonglade forums but thought it would be a better idea to share it on the RP forums so that everyone might have a look at it. However, before I start posting all my songs, could I get into trouble for essentially copy-pasting one thread from one forum to another? I just wanted to clear this up in case it got me into any bother.Bollthorn85 12 Apr
12 Apr [Guide] How to Roleplay a Death Knight FOREWORD What originally started out as an informative reply and quickly grew too long for a single post has now amassed into this extensive guide to Death Knight Roleplay - now with a shiny new update! This guide will attempt to cover every aspect of roleplaying a Death Knight, from the most basic to the most in depth. Some of the things I address because I have witnessed them first hand, and other things are here because people have asked about them. All my sources are cited at the end of the guide, and I've tried to make clear what is lore, what is speculation, and what is personal preference. Many thanks to the people who wrote the lore, the people who collected the lore on wikis and in other roleplay guides on the forums, and the people who shared their thoughts and opinions with me on this topic. I will try to credit all of you at the end as well, but please forgive me if memory fails and I miss a name! Table of Content: 1. Facts about the IC Class 2. The Story by Blizzard 3. Faction Alliegence 4. Making Your Character Within This 5. Races 6. Being a DK after the Lich King's Fall 7. Being a DK in Legion 8. Specialisations 9. Abilities 10. Saronite 11. Miscellaneous 12. Useful Tips and Advice 13. Sources NOTE: The number of posts I originally reserved for this guide originally failed to live up to the sheer volume of information surrounding this topic - a lot of which gets asked, answered and pointed to in the ever-growing comments. So if the guide itself does not answer your questions, go ahead and check out the comments! Since this latest update to the guide, I find I have either become much more space efficient or Blizzard have upped the limit on post sizes. Either way, you'll see a lot of now empty posts near the end of this guide which I intend to try to fill out with the compiled results of discussions in the comments. That... will take a long time to get through, though, but I felt the main guide deserved this update now at least. Enjoy!Koránith368 12 Apr
12 Apr Does anyone know any good demon hunter names? For a male Night Elf? Night Elf names are so diverse, and it differs so much per class. And since there's only a few demon hunters, I'm really having trouble coming up with a good name. Anyone?Reginald57 12 Apr
10 Apr Newly Risen Death Knights So we all know now that the Ebon Blade are raising fresh Death Knights but has anyone given a go at roleplaying as a new Death Knight? I'm quite curious how they'd differ from the standard Death Knights we've had since Wotlk. What are there thoughts on being a DK? Many of the original DKs from Wotlk were brand new to this whole experience and very few would have known of Death Knights from before and most would only have met the Ebon Blade after already becoming undead, how would the recently resurrected individual react to being risen by the Ebon Blade presuming that they know about the faction, what they are and what they do. Would it make it easier or harder to accept? The other question I have is regarding what makes Death Knights so ruthless, the addictive need to inflict suffering or else they are wracked by terrible pain. Would the Ebon Blade purposefully instil this in their newly risen or would it be more akin to the Forsaken way to bringing back an individual? On the same note would the risen DKs still be under the influence of the Lich King even though it wasn't he would commanded them to be raised? (I assume it was whomever the Deathlord is IC) Would society, the DKs race in general, friends or family be more or less accepting of them when compared to the events of Wrath? Would love to hear some thoughts and feedback on this as I don't think I've met anyone ingame, IC or OOC that has explored these thoughts before.Loethen6 10 Apr
10 Apr Tales and Stories Hello everyone I am an avid writer; I love to write stories about my characters and about stories in Azeroth and other fantasy worlds of my own making. I don't proclaim to be a good writer, but I enjoy doing it, especially short one or two part stories. I'd like to think as well that there are others out there who are in a potentially similar position to myself. So, I invite anyone reading this to write their own short stories. They must be in the Warcraft setting, but about what and who is completely up to you. I request however that you keep the stories to three or four parts at maximum; this is dedicated to short stories, not novels or entire backstories. And if no-one else wants to write in this thread, then I hope at least that you enjoy my writing. If you have any questions, or wish to comment on my works or others, then leave a comment and I (And hopefully the others) will respond. And with that out of the way, I will begin.Tinitha9 10 Apr
10 Apr "Armour not glowy IC" So, this is probably one of the most common notes people have in their RP addon of choice. And, I'm actually somewhat curious about people's thoughts on using "glowy" or otherwise somewhat over-the-top transmogs in game. I'm somewhat on the fence on this myself. Personally, I'm a huge fan of some of these designs. Call me a nerd, or immature, or whatever, but I love the idea of my character's armour having visual enchantments, possibly explaining some of their in character strengths. They just... look cool, okay? But, at the same time, I understand that it's a balance of RP: If everyone is walking around with glowy, magical gear, then it breaks suspension of disbelief, and, of course, the whole "special snowflake" problem of giving your character to many special items in an attempt to make them seem "above" the average RP character, both are valid discouragements. To me though, whilst I get that it's kinda dumb for with a common footsoldier to have such items, I feel it's justifiable if you're RPing, say, a death knight, or a draenei vindicator or something. At the end of the day, WoW is a high fantasy setting, and you do see NPCs walking around with this kind of armour in game, sometimes they'll even be guards or people you wouldn't expect to be particularly "elite", so it's not like it's something that never exists in the world. Honestly, I'm just really curious on what other people think. Do you think glows/enchantments or other "over-the-top" features on armour and weapons are justifiable and usable in rp, to what extent should they be used, and in which cases?Loashei8 10 Apr
10 Apr [Looking for Help] My Character Concept I've recently returned to the game and am working on a concept for my character before I hit roleplay so far I have Nos'Dingo is a seasoned head hunter, after his tribe reached Durotar he took off wandering for several years periodically returning to society in times of need having joined the fight against the Lich King, Deathwing and Garrosh respectively. Most at home in the wilds he is a skilled Marksmen and an elite sharp shooter having earned a reputation for his skill with a bow some claiming he can even outshoot the legendary Ranger Generals of the Elves. With the War against the Legion stepping up he has returned from the Wilds once more as a member of the Unseen Path and is using the skills he's acquired as a Hunter to fight for Azeroth's future.Nosdingo7 10 Apr
