41m How would you get killed by the above poster? #2 We all can't die dead enough. @ Death Shatter his lantern while attacking him, decanting every single spirit collected. This causes them to swirl around and form a soulnado to appear which draws Cathríon in and tears her apart.Cathríon26 41m
1h Low level RP guilds I'm a newbie on World of Warcraft and I'm already getting involved with some role play.I typically play as a night elf and I was wondering if there's any community/city guilds that role play with low levels like me :)Videlea5 1h
1h 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!"Ategami304 1h
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.Marinya359 2h
12h Warlock character concept? Hey, so the thing is, when I first started RPing in October, I made the rookie mistake of playing around with a few "chaotic" characters, but obviously this didn't go well. I didn't really understand the nature of fel, shadow and undeath in the Warcraft universe, and needless to say, edgyness and cringe followed. Though now, as a more experienced roleplayer, I'm thinking of giving it another shot. So I'm in the process of levelling and hopefully eventually RPing this new character, and I wanna see if the concept and idea work. His name is Morty DeVulpes, and as you can see, he is a worgen, born in Gilneas in Stormglen Village (near where the worgen regained control of their human forms thanks to the night elves). He is 20 now, so he would have been a teenager during the time of the worgen intro. He was a fisherman (might change this to a mage's apprentice if it fits the lore better) and a fairly normal teen until his parents were killed by feral worgen and he himself was infected with the curse. Not long after regaining his sanity and human form, he was unfortunately captured by the forsaken forces. He was "given" to one of their apothecary to study. This was, obviously, not a pleasant experience, he suffered many experiments and was tortured and abused. After some time, he earned enough of the apothecary's trust to be treated as more of a slave/servant, rather than a mere test subject. This allowed him to study and make notes on the many dark tomes the forsaken had in his home, when the apothecary wasn't looking. Over the next year, unbeknownst to his master, he performed sneaky experiments and rituals of his own, he started to gain a grasp of the fel, and learn to communicate with some lesser demons who whispered promises of freedom and power to the young worgen. Using his newfound powers and the physical strength of his worgen form, he managed to finally kill the forsaken apothecary, and made his escape. The rush of power felt good, and offering the soul of the man who had tormented him for so long to the demons felt even better. Not long after regaining his freedom, however, he realised in horror what he had become. Not only was he cursed as a worgen, but in his obsession of regaining his freedom and losing the sense of powerlessness he felt serving the forsaken, he had let himself become a corrupted monster, not even thinking of the consequences until the freedom he sought was finally his. When he killed the apothecary, he was but an inch away from losing his humanity, and he was terrified of what might become of him now. He tried to further master his abilities, if only to avoid being lost to them, and in order to survive in the wilderness. After several years, he has now finally made his way back to civilization. So, he is quite a scared and damaged character, and not the strongest warlock out there, due to the nature of his "training". A lot of his mental efforts go into maintaining the discipline required not to succumb to the corruption of fel magic, but he still somewhat relies on it for survival and is unwilling to give it up. He tries his best to keep both his abilities and his cursed status as a worgen a secret. I was also thinking of making the fel corruption more obvious in his worgen form, with his human form appearing fairly normal, while his worgen form having green eyes and missing patches of fur, though, I'm not sure if that's too lore friendly. Do you think this is an okay concept and backstory to have, and does it keep to the lore? I am very happy to accept criticism and to change things around if need be. I realise playing a warlock is a difficult route to take, and I really wanna get it right for this character, while not just being the stereotypical warlock running around spamming /smirk at everything. I'd appreciate any opinions :)Devulpes16 12h
14h 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.Dakuh269 14h
15h Would you date the person above you? #38 The romance and nomance continues! @ Liruthien Folding her arms, Cathríon looks the Demon Hunter up and down in a not so subtle fashion for a few moments. "Well, I would be lying if I said I'm not entirely fond of the gratuitous amounts of cleavage and barechestedness regularly displayed by your ilk, but I'm less than enamoured with the horns and how they came to be, so that should allow you to draw your own conclusions in regards to how I feel about a potential date ..." Having another quick scan, she continues. "... basically, the Illidari are a lot more fun to look at than anything else we've seen pop up out of nowhere over the past few years, such as Death Knights and the Pandaren, but then again, I can easily inspire pristine skinned, unscarred and hornless Sin'dorei to expose even more flesh, so there isn't really anything unique which you can offer asides from ... your taint." As she begins to stroll off, she stops for a moment, turning back for a final look before adding. "I like the blindfold. Good choice of colour. It's important to remember where you came from, otherwise you'll become lost before you get to where you wanted to go ... then you could end up anywhere. We don't want that now, do we?"Cathríon32 15h

1d Roleplaying name for a female BE warlock? Hello! I wanted to make a female blood elf warlock but I am not good at roleplaying / "lorefriendly" names for bloodelfs. Would prefer something that sound a little fitting for an affliction warlock. Any suggestions?Krech5 1d
1d Belf Demon Hunter I recently joined the Horde with my main monk but also enjoy playing Dh and roleplying one, however i see little reason for belves to be DH. I mean the Night elves have suffered greatly from the Legion but the Blood elves not so much. To me a orc DH makes more sense lore wise and as far as i know a Blood elf Dh is only a Dh because they got sent to Illidan. So how do you guys deal with that IC?Ironmountain3 1d
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.*Yabu195 1d
1d beginner roleplayer So ive decided to lay down my warriors swords and embark on an rp adventure. I wish to roleplay as a loremaster my definition of a loremaster is someone who travels the lands learning and teaching lore. someone who delves into the depths of the most ancient of places and finds books and talismans to expand his knowledge of the world. what race class combo would fit this? i ask as i m stumped.Docvand6 1d
2d B.tags... You are all a very nice bunch of peoples, and I do enjoy every RP I do with all of you. there are one thing that I have been thinking about though, and that's the possibility to chat with you directly, cause if one doesnt bump directly into one another ingame, then it is hard to get in more direct contact, that is, if one dont have each others B.tag. I do have one suggestion though, to make this tread a list for those that wish to share their B.tag. I'll Start: Xirque#2359Xirque16 2d
2d Same sex marriage in RP Is it possible that Nightelves are open enough to the idea of same sex marriage?Mathzaeñ50 2d
2d Shattrath and the dark portal I´m making a draenei character but there is some lore that I haven´t understood in what order it came, and that is if Shattrath fell before or after the dark portal opened? My thought was ( according to the movie which I have not either found if thats legit or not ) that since they used Draeneis to fuel the portal opening, it would make a bit sence if they took the citicens that lived in Shattrath to fuel it since it had fallen anyway, or did it open before the fall of Shattrath? And did they then actually use Draeneis as fuel or is that just to make the movie more dramatic? ( Yes I have not played WoW for to long so understanding Lore before MoP is quite something ) Or am I even totally off with everything here.Dorethien1 2d
2d RP newb! Alright many questions here, if anyone is able to anwer any of them, I'd be very happy! First things first though: I have no idea about rp, although i've wanted for some time now to get into it. My my main and my server are Renehoonigan- Killrogg (then one i've posted as) although im afraid that he is too modern- militarish looking for a ranger and i wont be able to rp as him, not a good rp at least, also i wont be able to join any rp guild, rp on my server is pretty non-existent (i think i can fix that by finding ppl to roleplay with from rp servers, add their btags and maybe join them in events and the sorts? if that is possible would the mythos of the strange guy noone sees frequently/warrior from another realm be a good idea??) I need someone to help me create a character for my dude, i dont know what features are characterised as good rp or not, dont wanna end up with a character that will not be fun for other to play together. If this dude, Renehoonigan, is not good then ideas for other character will be appreciated ^^ Also any other general etiquette concerning rp will be greatly appreciated, im just getting started here, dont wanna be the average party-pooper rp newb xDRenehoonigan4 2d
3d Wedding Ceremonies: What Would They Be? I recently played with the idea of getting one of my characters hitched and it so happened the two characters involved with both Draenei. It made me question what the traditional Draenic wedding might entail! What kind of ceremony, ritual or tradition they would have? This applies to all races and cultures within WoW. What do you think? Have you had your own character wedding? What was it like? Did you feel you had free rein or did you do plenty of research?Ysonda2 3d
5d Matching set to class mounts So now that most of us have class mounts, what transmog do you use with it or what do you think is the best set/combination that fits with the fantasy of that mount?Callixtus10 5d
5d Suggest a voice reference for the person above you #1 I recently came up with this idea, it may not get far, but i'm curious as to how well it's gonna go. So how does it work? simple, just suggest a voice from any character/person/celebrity/anything that you think it would fit the above person.Blanes24 5d
5d Legacy of the Soulflayer Me and a friend of mine decided to start a new RP community together. Even though we're not sure about it's success, I'm pretty certain that our chosen thematic is quite unpopular. Speaking about Hakkari RP. We want to offer an Hakkari based Military/Cult RP/PvP. We thought about offering two paths to chose from within the guild. The path of Destruction (Military) and the path of Devotion (Priesthood), depending from what a person wants to rp as. She's leading the priesthood, while I'm leading the military. We're currently brandnew and trying to get things started. So, if anyone reading this post is interested, feel free to contact us here... :) The main concept is to offer a more evil themed troll RP and to function as recruitable NPC's (Ennemies) for the campaigns of other guilds.Batunga0 5d
6d Mage Roleplay (OOC topic) Mage roleplay (OOC Topic) I did pandaren mage not long ago and now i am thinking what is possibly and what not. I have kept things somewhat realistic and tryed to keep it non OP, but i am seeking more knowledge from peopple, who have or are rp:eing as mage. I use mana point system, what seems to be usefull and keeps things in contronll. Under is how does the system goes: Strong spell (Blizard, Group teleporting) = 5 mana point Normal spell (teleporting, fire/arcane ball ) = 3 mana point Weak spell (Polymorph, blink)= 1 mana point I added few spells, so peopple gets idea. You are free to ask me. Tay, my panda mage, has 10 mana points and she uses this mana point system. When she runs to 0 mana point, she is exhausted and cant use spells. As for visualizing spells, i have used difrent coloured mists. Like when i am using arcane , it is purpple coloured mist. Thinks and thoughs? I am curios to hear other players, who are or has rp:ed on mage ^^Taylinin4 6d
6d Role-Playing Opportunities? Where? Hey there! I'd love to start RPing, but I have no idea where to look for the best. I am happy with any realm, but I am interested in largely Forsaken RP, but I'd be willing to make the jump to another race. The thing I am looking for is a happy, small, close-knit group really! Which realm would be the best? Are there some friendly people who might possibly adopt an Undead Wanderer such as myself? Looking forward to talk to you!Lymph5 6d

17 Jun [Guide] Tauren Roleplay Guide - UPDATED 2016 Tauren Roleplay Guide. This guide has been written to update and replace the old Spirit Wolves Tauren guide by Takuur. The original guide was written’ in 2010 and can be found here: However, with the ever changing World of Warcaft lore, loreology tweets and additional insight, the guide has regrettably dated and in need of some sprucing up. This updated version has been created by myself, with the help of Burrkaem; being Guild Master and officer of the Spiritwolf Tribe of Argent Dawn EU, we are determined to keep the flame of Tauren role-play shining brightly. We hope that this will help new and existing Tauren Roleplayers as much as Takuurs guide has in the past. If anyone would like to contact me about anything regarding this guide or Tauren Roleplay, I can be whispered or mailed in game on the Argent Dawn forum on either Shaylay, Istu or Seryddol. *Disclaimer* This guide was written with the sole purpose of aiding roleplayers to explore Tauren culture. All information has been taken from readily available sources and all information is trademarked by Blizzard entertainment, while some is simple speculation and general fan fiction taken from inspiration of Native American and tribal cultures. This is not to say that this is the –only- way to roleplay a Warcraft Tauren, it is simply designed to help those who wish to use it or simply to satisfy curiosities. This guide may be shared with other realms for their own community use but please state clearly who originally wrote it and place mention to the ‘The Spirit Wolves’ on linking. Contents: • About Tauren • Appearance • Aging • Culture • Locations • Affiliation • Names • Tribes • Classes • Language • Faith • Lifestyle • History • Mounts • Areas of Kalimdor • Character construction guides • References and Guilds Tauren: Tauren, also called Shu'halo in their native tongue, are minotaur-like creatures. Their appearance can be intimidating; the females averaging at 9ft and the males at a shocking 10ft. Even though their actual height is not displayed in game (only eight feet tall in ‘in-game’ appearances), Sean Copeland of Loreology has confirmed them to actually be larger than the in-game models in WoW. The link to the tweet can be found later within this guide. Despite their size and strength, they are known for their peaceful ways of life; loyal to Earthmother and the balance of all things living and otherwise. Tauren are the guardians of the earth and so waste none of Earth Mothers bounties. They are hunters by heart and though they do slay animals, are known to use hide, bone and meat alike as to not waste anything of the life just taken. Some tribes are even said to pay respects to a fallen animal and offer thanks for it giving its life so that they may live. Though largely peaceful, that is not to say that the Tauren are pacifists. A Tauren will fight fiercely yet usually has reason and a strong belief for doing so. A Tauren in battle is a fearsome sight, yet equally this noble race can be merciful and just. *Appearance* As mentioned earlier, Tauren males average at 10ft while females are usually a little shorter and averaging at 9ft. Muscular and terrifically strong, they can sometimes appear cumbersome to others, however Tauren can reach decent speeds with their long strides and powerful legs. Their bodies are covered in fur of varying lengths, patterns and shades; their fur can often indicate their tribe or bloodline. Their manes range in shades also, covering their heads, hump and falling partially down their backs. Manes can grow long enough to braid and it is common for Tauren to decorate their braids with beads or feathers. Eyes again vary in shades, from browns and blacks to blues and greens. Tauren take great pride in their horn, caring for them and keeping them pristine with some choosing to decorate them. It is said that some tribes practice snapping another Taurens horns as a sign of exile and punishment. Tauren wear natural clothing made from hides and furs and are regularly decorated in jewellery made from wood or bones. With the introduction of the Horde and the need for battle armour, sturdier armour such as plate mail is now also seen to be worn by Tauren in battle. It should also be noted that many Tauren see white fur as an ill omen, considering the increased appearance of white Tauren to be a sign of hardships to come. The white fur is often associated with Spirit Walkers, some believing that the Tauren born with such features is destined to walk this path in their life. RPG books suggest that Spirit Walkers may also acquire the white fur after a prolonged connection with the energies of the spiritual plane. *Aging* The hardest one to determine. However the easiest time line seems to be the ‘adulthood at 15’ statement and seems to be the one favoured amongst Roleplayers. This could mean that Tauren age much the same as humans; however it is suggested that Tauren age better than humans and remain active long into their later years, being considered old at the age of 95. A Tauren can, in some cases, live past a hundred, becoming venerable past 110. This is suggested by loreology and one of the RPG books. The alternative age choice is the ‘adulthood at 50’. Speculation says that this is probably an ‘observed adulthood’ and one that is reached upon completion of ‘Rites of Passage’ or in other words, tests to allow an individual to call themselves ‘adult’. Both suggested ages of turning adult come from RPG books, therefore it's hard to determine which would be correct. Personally here in Spirit Wolves we use the ‘adulthood at 15’ version but the choice is up to you as an individual! The Tauren's fur can turn grey with age, usually appearing first around the muzzle. *Culture* Tauren have travelled across Kalimdor throughout their existence, settling down within Mulgore in recent years as the Centaur threat diminished with help from the Orcs. It is believed that Tauren would follow the Kodo herds; however it is possible that other tribes would have different means of surviving such as staying close to rivers or residing in more mountainous regions. Although it is not displayed in game, it is likely that Tauren tribes were wide spread across all areas of Kalimdor and likely adopting various methods of survival. The Tauren are a race of warriors, shamans and hunters; their settlements usually being temporary and easily packed up to suit their nomadic lifestyles. Other races have described them as stoic; the embodiment of the ‘strong silent type’, regularly seeming to be contemplating the situation they find themselves in. However as with any race, personalities can vary. Their size makes them intimidating to many; a wise yet strong and on occasion brutal air to them. When describing a Tauren it is said that they are creatures of few words, preferring to act rather than talk. They can also appear brooding, perhaps a result of the strife their people have faced; the Tauren having no love for bloodshed. Yet the Tauren usually become more open and enthusiastic in exchanging words once they become comfortable with a companion. It is arguable that the ever changing world and introduction of the horde is slowly altering Tauren personality and culture; forcing them to adapt to the new world they find themselves in and therefore opening up more to outsiders. Tauren are a very spiritual race, deeply set in their beliefs, turning to their Elders and spiritual leaders to solve issues within the tribe. Tribes are communities and usually all share a part in the decision making, with the Elders having the strongest voices and sharing their wisdom amongst their tribesmen. However, due to the centaur conflicts and the new conflicts emerging due to their affiliation with the horde, a higher demand for warriors and healers have arisen. Two Tauren in a dispute may challenge each other to a ritual fight resembling a duel, however in recent years it is not uncommon to see training areas such as fighting rings where Tauren practice their skills in combat and test their abilities against each other in a friendly fashion. Everything a Tauren does is carefully weighed out in their mind. Taking a life is not an easy choice in Tauren culture, and so the decision to do so, whether it's Tauren, sentient being or beast, must be considered carefully.Shaylay44 17 Jun

17 Jun Struggling with Roleplay and character concepts Hey. For a long time, I was unable to roleplay due to RL limitations. But even though I didn't get a chance to roleplay my mind was running wild with various character concepts. Spellblade Sin'dorei A criminal turned Paladin Human A devout assassin living in the Cathedral guised as a priest Gilnean engineer / pilot in service to the Alliance the list goes on. Point is, now that I've gotten a chance to roleplay some of them, and level others, I find that I'm either not as motivated to play them, or that the concepts I've made don't mesh with the variety of guilds avaliable or they don't even mesh with with other people. Have you ever been in such a situation? How did you get over it? Do you have any recommendations?Khiero2 17 Jun
17 Jun The Intercontinental Role-play Discussion. #1 Greetings, one and all! As a player of both the European and America(s) regions i've noticed how vastly the Role-play between both can differ which has lead to the creation of the following thread. I would like to create a bridge between these two otherwise disconnected Communities of World of Warcraft and allow for both communities to interact and engage in dialog with one and other. Sharing differing thoughts and opinions on a subject and cultivate discussion on a wide variety of different subjects in a civil and mature enviroment. Feel free to ask to ask any question you may have for the opposite region below and reply to posts as follows for easier communication between both: @Êurope The intercontinental Role-play Discussion thread for the America(s) region. Important Announcment: Unfortunately, my gametime within the European Region has reached it's conclusion therfor I leave it you, the Community to continue on the discussion and actively bump the thread to ensure it's survival. I will, naturally be cutorating the thread for the America(s) region so you'll certainly see me around on Êurope but for now it'll be the last you'll see of me on here. If both threads don't die off from inactivity or stagnation by then, by all means feel free to poke me on Discord to enquire of curating and coordination the thread from the European side.Âmericas13 17 Jun
16 Jun 1st Generation Death Knight I recently had this idea of roleplaying as a 1st generation Death Knight. Do you think it is a good idea (I don't want to spend time lvling and writing a backstory if it is a bad idea) ? Where can I find some infos on them ? Also what would be the best class for this ? I'm hesitating between Affliction Warlock and Unholy DK.Marchenuit4 16 Jun
16 Jun Struggling with Human Priest Hello, I'm extremely new to WoW and I have only a little experience with RPing in MMOs so I hope you will bear with me on any newbishness. I've tried looking up various RP guides for this but I'm feeling quite overwhelmed. Do NPCs refer to you as if you are from Stormwind? Do they call you young? It tends to throw me off a lot so I want to be prepared to deal with whatever the game presumes. Also, is 18 an okay age to be starting out as a priest or should it be older/younger? At that age, what are the major events I should read up on? Should I just get used to the fact that all RP guides are going to be infodumps? I managed to get into this Night Elf druid without having to read too much as she's quite young (127) and hadn't been out of Moonglade. For a human priest it seems like I should strangely know a lot more. I'm sorry, I'm not very good at conveying what I want to say in general. Maybe if you have preferred guides you could link me to them? I'm aware of the sticky. Thanks.Nymestra3 16 Jun
15 Jun Is it possible to make profit on AH in RP realms? Hey, I've returned to WoW and I decided to play my Rogue in Argent Dawn RP realm, and I have been farming materials like ores and I have put them up for auction. Now, my question is: are the RP realms good for making profit? I am concerned about my auctions, because I see a lot of transmog items on AH, and I don't know what to do. Should I transfer my rogue to different realm? Note: I ain't interested in transmog selling. I'm just curious if it's good idea to farm materials and sell them in AH. Oh, and sorry if this isn't the right place for this kind of question.Deepcover3 15 Jun

14 Jun Hammering out a Character Profile I'm a returning player and have recently re-rolled a Night Elf. When I last played, we were in Cata and things were just starting to get a bit rougher, but she was doing quite well for herself having got through some previous issues. I'm really not up to date with lore at the moment and am trying to pick up on world events since then, and how they'd shape her life. My concept for this character is that at some point something happened to her, draining her of her vitality. So am toying with the idea that she was at some point captured with a group, and they were held prisoner, and used in a rite where their souls were drained for some dark purpose. Before the rite was complete, she managed to escape, but it's left her a shadow of herself - hence her new appearance of ashen skin, hair turned white. As I level her up, I plan to have her re-discover the aspects of her self, find her memories, and strength. Would this be feasible? Can anyone advise on what sort of rite would have occurred, and who would have done this? And how it would relate to the changes in this setting since Cata? I'm very lore driven and want to produce a solid character that is not a Mary Sue. Any suggestions and tips would be gratefully received.Allorys6 14 Jun
14 Jun Draenei Roleplaying guide. I would firstly like to make a point that this guide was originaly written and edited by Sikon a valued member of the Disciples of the Naaru on Argent Dawn EU before she left the World of Warcraft. So, everything from now on was not my work and I take no credit for anything other than saving the guide... Copying from the old forum before it a splode.

14 Jun Can Warlocks still use Arcane? I was wondering, can Warlocks still use Arcane magic? If there isn't any evidence to support this, is there any evidence to go against it? Thanks.Matemaeous7 14 Jun
14 Jun Uhnish Naus - Void Cult Guild Good morning, afternoon or evening people of the forums! Let's play Catchup: As some people who reside within Darkshire on Argent Dawn, you may have heard of the fall of the Nathrezim Malum, known for terrorising Duskwood and the surrounding areas alongside a group of individuals sworn to serve the Void. I write here this evening to inform you all that his death does not mean the death of Uhnish Naus. As when one falls, another shall rise to power. What we intend to do: For the time being, Uhnish Naus will remain in the shadows, plotting, recruiting/corrupting and preparing for our inevitable return once the dust has settled. Our return will be without warning (However this can be seen as a warning on a OOC level) and without mercy. Taking the land of Duskwood and in turn, the surrounding areas by storm. Should you wish to oppose us: Please contact the new Guild Master (me) or any officer within the Guild (Toliare, Natthann, Eleonóre, Azaieth and Theostorlic) and we will be more than happy to help with setting up an event or two (Or how ever many you would like) to get some Guild on Guild war/conflict RP going as in the past we have found that getting randomly attacked all around the clock has been a little taxing on not only the previous Guild Master, but the Guild as a whole. This however, does not mean you cannot seek us out and attack us on a whim, but please do contact at least one person named above beforehand so we at least expect it. I wish for the roleplay to be enjoyable and stress free as possible. Should you wish to join us: As stated above, please by all means look into contacting either myself or a officer and we will work something out to get the ball rolling in that regard. Any questions are more than welcome, I eagerly look forward to hearing from you! Toodles~Enedíon2 14 Jun
13 Jun Someone for some rp I recently began to see rp as an interesting activity but I dont really want to make a new character on RP server, especially when the solution can be much simpler: crossrealm RP. I have to say Im not good at it and Ill make mistakes also I dont think its necesary to uphold all the "rules" since its gonna be a thing between 2-3 ppl so we can let loose our fantasy. There could be some adventures/legion fighting etc. etc. Preferably on Alliance but I also have a char on Horde so that works too ;) Kharmul#2235Andreasus7 13 Jun
13 Jun Greetings to all! Role-playing has been something that I've always been fond of, but, for some reason, I never dedicated any time to it. I used to role-play back in WotLK, but that's a long time ago! After hanging out for a while and reading some of the threads on the forums, I am kind of motivated and inspired to start doing it again! I also think it would be like a ''getaway'' from all the regular things that I do like questing, farming, raiding, etc. So, I'm wondering, would anyone (preferably from AD) be kind enough to welcome me and introduce me to the role-playing on the server? I'm usually a very solitary player and I'd basically start as a newbie, so I would be more than happy to have company around to keep me motivated, and of course to share an adventure together! Something else that I've been questioning myself is whether I'll need role-playing items, gear and all other things to get me started, or simply start as a regular leveling character. Feel free to leave your comments, thoughts and tips here so that I could have a read. And thank you in advance! :) P.S. If anyone wants to talk to me, you can add me on if you'd like: Aeredhon#2284Elunara5 13 Jun
12 Jun New in RP, need advice ! Good morning y'all. So, I would like to get started into RP, I'm really really bored of WoW right now, and some have told me to try RP. But before I do, I would like to have some advice from RP'ers directly. So I have a couple questions, first of all, which realm would be the best to get started? That is, if there are realms who are more friendly towards new RP'ers and some who aren't. Also, which faction ? I've heard of RP addons as well, which ones should I get ? And last of all, if you have any advice. I've heard that you need some kind of back story to your character, any advices there, what to avoid and what to do in order to get you story straight? Looking forward to reading your answers :)Wayneth5 12 Jun
12 Jun Human-Forsaken Convertion Hello, It appears I have a question. My plan is to (after some time playing human) convert to forsaken. Now, before I start tailoring the story behind it, is it even possible ? I mean, is it possible for a human to become a forsaken in post Lich King reality?Zafir2 12 Jun
11 Jun RP realm Hey, are there any good rp realms? Because I tried MG and Argent Dawn and they were so empty and dead. I play Alliance.Dorran2 11 Jun
11 Jun Voidlords & Demons I've a question about the Voidwalkers & Voidlords that serve warlocks who enslave them, and also serve the Legion. With the Chronicles volume 1 we now know of the void. I'm curious if these Voidlords have branched off from the shadow lands to serve the Legion? Like are they the 'good' voidwalkers/lords? I'm likely looking for Blizzard to shed some light on this too. It's been wracking my brain since I tried to make a story for my Shadow Wrathsteed. I've not really had a good answer, other than there are holes in the story. Shadow magic, void and the powers within that realm really confuse me. (Says the warlock) The information at which I am trying to understand, we summon demons from the Nether and enslave them. Does that mean the Voidlords and Voidwalkers we summon are from the Nether? This probably makes no sense I am confusing myself as I write this!Zéike6 11 Jun
11 Jun Does Brain Surgery exist in the WoW universe? It has always been an unclear fact whether or not brain surgery actually exists in the WoW universe, and not everyone agrees with me when I say it could do. I give the evidence or advanced alchemy and brains in jars existing to prove that some primitive forms of brain surgery would exist, but would we know how to operate on a brain and know what each part would do. Thanks in advance for any answers,Lukepeculier10 11 Jun
10 Jun 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!Tethenar285 10 Jun
09 Jun Nostalgic Guild LFM lvl 60 Raiders Cup of Tea is a Social Levelling Guild that also endeavours to play through the old content of wow starting from the Vanilla Raids. We have a growing Raid team but we are looking for additional level 60 Raiders to join us. The Guild is situated on Twisting Nether. We understand that the content will never be as difficult, and that it will never be the same, but this is all just for a bit of fun. I hope by posting we can find more like minded players that are interested in a bit of nostalgia, and also making friends and playing through all of the games content rather than just levelling straight to 110. We have started raiding Molten Core, but we need more players and more classes to join our raid team. The only classes/roles that we don't need are Prot Warr/Disc Priest. So if you have a Lvl 60 char that you would like to join our Guild or would like to level a char to 60 to join us please whisper me or any Guild members in game as we can all invite. Also if you have any further questions please do go ahead and ask.Nituna1 09 Jun
