Role-Playing

14 Feb 2014 Forum Guidelines - Please Read Welcome to the World of Warcraft discussion forums! This forum is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss all aspects of World of Warcraft with your fellow players. Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you take the time to read through the forum Code of Conduct before posting. Search The new search function at the top of the World of Warcraft community site is extremely robust. Please be sure to use it to look for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the answer before creating your forum topic. Making a new thread on an existing subject will likely result in your thread being deleted. If you continue to repost it you're likely to have your posting privileges suspended for spamming. Worst of all, you'll be making the other forum goers upset that you didn't take a minute to search before posting. Reporting You can quickly report a post as trolling or spam, or use the report function to fill out a more comprehensive description of the violation. You can only rate each post once. Use it wisely to help foster a positive and helpful forum community. Guidelines In addition to the Forum Code of Conduct (http://eu.battle.net/en/community/conduct), here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow to ensure these forums remain a constructive and friendly gathering place for the community. While these do technically fall within the bounds of the Code of Conduct, these cover more specific examples of common errors that will lead to thread deletions or posting privileges being revoked. The World of Warcraft forums are for discussion of topics directly related to World of Warcraft The forums here are specifically to discuss the game and related topics. Any topics not related to World of Warcraft, Battle.net or Blizzard are subject to deletion. Don't post in all capital letters, use a misleading title, excessive punctuation, non-standard symbols, etc. While everyone wants their posts read, we ask you to refrain from using these types of tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Using the words Blizzard, Blue, or any community team members name in a thread topic to gather attention is frowned upon Everyone would like Blizzard to read and acknowledge his or her post, and we understand that. However, use of such words in the topic does not help that come to pass. Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Note that threads discussing e.g. the Blizzard authenticator or Blizzard’s latest press release are allowed to have Blizzard in the title as it’s then relevant to the discussion. Posting "First" or IBTL constitutes as spamming You will be suspended if you create a post that is intended to call out that you achieved a specific reply number in a thread. This is considered spamming. Posting IBTL (in before the lock) is not helpful and if you feel a thread should be moderated please use the rating button to do so. Posting TLDR or L2P constitutes as trolling Posting TLDR (Too Long, Didn’t Read) is saying you don’t care about a player’s post. Posting L2P (Learn to Play) mocks the player for their skill or experience level rather than provide constructive input on the post itself. Both are considered trolling and will lead to a suspension.Takralus2 14 Feb 2014

44s What would your character say to the above poster? #25 I filled it in so I would suppose it's my turn to make a new one, yes? Is that... how it works? Anyway, I'll quote the last entry here: "May I suggest seeking out the services of a brothel instead of encouraging strangers to do the deed out in the open?" the tauren looks at Ialith who smiles innocently back at him, then looks back at Mithcha. "Lady Ialith may be more forthcoming about her advances then others but that does not give cause to believe she lacks the decency to have such affairs privately." I also noticed I got sniped. Filling in: Lerquiy looks and nods at Tethenar approvingly. "Indeed as you say. Such behaviour would be inappropriate for a young lady such as herself. I can understand seeking the pleasures of the flesh as such an attractive young female but privacy is not something one should give up readily, especially in such affairs."Lerquiy55 44s

3h Incest in the World of Warcraft? So I'll be making this topic in the Story forum as well because I'm not sure if it should be here or there. Basically I've a question. We all know WoW is set in a medieval fantasy world. In Medieval times, incest was not only not frowned upon but encouraged to 'keep the bloodline clean'. I know it is considered gross today but what would people in WoW think about it? Blizzard is very careful to keep the game family friendly so I doubt that it will ever happen with any major lore characters but if it did happen in a novel or something, would it be frowned upon by society or accepted as an effort to preserve the purity of a line? I'm mainly interested in blood elves for this particular topic but if you guys know anything about any of the other cultures I'd be thankful if you shared.Irhiath33 3h

6h Do draenei mages have a specific title? So, I am currently working on a rank-system for an "Army of the Light" guild...and now I'm looking up information about draenei mages and specifically if they have some special title or rank. You have the paladins being called "Vindicator" (not only the paladins, but it's mostsly associated with them), the priests are called "Anchorite" (or "Lector" in the Army as Enaara has the rank of "Grand Lector" so we can probably assume that "Lector" exists as well), and the artificers. I can only find two names for mages: Mystics (the name can be found in the Exodar) or Augari (but this probably refers to the specific group lead by Archimonde on Argus). The latter one still sounds rather fitting, but it is associated with Archimonde...so. Any ideas? Any tips?Avaressa3 6h

11h The Monk Roleplaying Guide Hello there, grasshopper! This is my friendly monk guide. If you have any questions, ask away. I hope that by reading this it answers some of the more frequently asked questions about what monk RP can entail or involve - or find the interest to roll one if you haven't already! (Get it? Roll?). This guide is frequently updated. ... In perspective of the class we play, they're heavily based on the Shaolin monks of ancient China. They're not a new class to the Warcraft universe, but to the other races they are a mostly new occupation. To be a monk is certainly a way of life, and not simply something one does in his spare time, as it takes years of training to be capable as a hand to hand fighter on battlefields, especially when they are often dominated by steel and magic. A well studied monk has access to potent Chi energy; the spirit energy within all people that only monks know how to fully control at will. Chi strengthens their punches to the strength of mace strikes, it even allows them to perform great feats of Chi magic, capable of healing or harming whoever the monk wishes in many ways. They train mentally and physically to be as strong, yet agile as possible. A monk's athleticism is what makes him a deadly fighter. On the battlefield, they can easily outmaneuver footsoldiers in heavy armor, and perhaps even the spells of mages and projectiles of archers. They fight with their legs as well as their hands, and in one-on-one combat they would be amongst the hardest combatants to battle - in fact, well trained monks are competent enough to fight many enemies at once. They can serve as healers of their allies, skilled soldiers on the front lines, or bolster their rank's offence or defensive capabilities with pandaren brews that sharpen one's mind rather than blur and slow it. Monks have lightning fast minds, reflexes, and attacks. They have played an important role in Pandaria's battlefields for thousands of years, and will no doubt bring new tactics to the table as more races learn their ways. ... Most, if not all of this is taken from in-game lore texts but I have condensed it down to what I feel are the most important parts. Monk history is tied directly to pandaren and Pandaria history. Reknowned monks: Emperor Shaohao - the Last Emperor of Pandaria was presumably a monk. Lord Taran Zhu - 'his prowess is legendary', say the Shado-Pan, whom he leads. Chen Stormstout - the famous wandering brewmaster is also a skilled monk. Master Bruised Paw - the Hidden Master of Pandaria. Master Shang Xi - the last Master of the Training Grounds of the Wandering Isle. Aysa Cloudsinder - student of Master Shang Xi and philosophical leader of the Tushui. Ji Firepaw - student of Master Shang Xi and philosophical leader of the Huojin. Kang the Fist of First Dawn - the first monk who taught the pandaren slaves under the mogu to fight unarmed. How the monks began.. ... Roleplay Specializations - Your tiger style is no match for my serpent style! The three in-game specs are Brewmaster, Windwalker, and Mistweaver. However, it's rare for monks to refer to these styles by these names e.g, one doesn't study the path of a Windwalker or a Mistweaver, they are loose terms - as broad as saying you're studying the path of the warrior or the paladin - you don't say 'protection paladin' ICly either. Whilst it does give an inclination as to what kind of monk you are - a Windwalker being an aggressive fighter, and a Mistweaver being a healer, there are more fitting ways of describing it. Each of the August Celetial's Temples in Pandaria marks the location of defeat for the Prime Sha by Emperor Shaohao thousands of years ago. Monks who train at these locations have developed different styles for combating the Sha relevant to their location. These are the styles practiced by monks today. Any self-developed, personal styles would have been branches of these original four. ... ... ... ... Whilst it's fine to develop your own style I'd put some thoughts into what the style is actually about and how it's different from something that already exists - it would most likely be a developed form of one of these styles. Styles under the tutelege of the Celestials and developed over 10,000 years are not easily improved upon. ... As far as pandaren style monks are concerned, and the playable class; monks as we know them have only really become available for the rest of the world, but in the monk order hall there are plenty of non-pandaren masters. This means enough time has passed for us as RPers to also feasibly play as masters if we aren't pandaren, though keep in mind that it has still only been a few years for non-pandaren to train as monks. Most pandaren masters are still going to have a larger amount of experience than non-pandaren masters. This is also important when we consider that being a master monk doesn't necessarily mean you're as good as you can get, but more on that later. There have been the pandaren venturing from the Wandering Isle, but it is rare that they will take on the time and commit themselves to teaching someone until they have mastered it. There are a few exceptions though. Brother Korloff of the Scarlet Crusade was taught by a wandering pandaren, and he then trained the Scarlets; hence why the Scarlets have monks. The Draenei starting area was retconned so that Mojo Stormstout was on Azuremust when the draenei crashed there, so on a chronological level, draenei monks could have been around since Burning Crusade. There are Argent monks, though since the Argent Crusade was born out of a breakaway faction of the Scarlets, it's plausible these monks are former students of Korloff, save for their lightwielding abilities. Auchenai monks seem to be more of the Christian monastic variety, keepers of the dead and holy in their beliefs, rather than the Shaolin style that the pandaren are based off. These monks don't work with Chi energy either; so if you were to roleplay one, it wouldn't be quite the same monk you play as in-game.Zen176 11h
17h Worgen Lore RP profile (seeing criticism) So, I've been trying to make a back story that makes sense in Worgen lore but could fit. Some criticism would be appreciated or if it makes no sense, tell me I'm stupid and it wouldn't work. Excuse the ignorance, Here's a brief overview. So, my character is a male Worgen Mage. He'd be quite old (actual age uncertain depending on lore`and timeline). ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ The idea is before the events of Gilneas falling which to my (knowledge was about 4 years ago in wow lore) (http://moon-guard.wikia.com/wiki/Kingdom_of_Gilneas) Magnussen, lived in Guineas for a long time before learning to be a Magus under the tutorage of Dalaran Magus and would eventually move there to perfect his skills. (depending on how rare that would be for a Gilnean mage to do such around aged 17?) Magnussen studied long and hard before hearing of the events that were transpiring in Gilneas and decided against the suggestion of the Magus of Dalaran to head over there and assist in what way he could. (Aged in his 20's I think?) Having helped as best he could, Magnussen as expected would have gotten bitten by a feral Worgen contracting the affliction and in time would become a feral Worgen before being cured (to a degree) Able to control mind while in feral form but obviously succumbs to anger as you'd expect. (unsure of timelines from being cursed and how long it would take to get cured to a degree) Once the process of being cured had taken effect Magnussen would become a refugee fleeing from the city once the city had fallen and would be forced to move to Stormwind from the aid of the Keldorei. Since then then Magnussen would come to terms with with curse and learn to take of a calmed lifestyle, rebuilding his life in Stormwind and continuing his research into the arcane under the guidance of Stormwind Magus. Now... I'm unsure of the integration of Worgen into Stormwind society, I would like to have it that Magnussen would become a professor of Stormwind University (which I am aware exists) after a couple of years. (now in his 40-50 age range). Of course Magnussen would have enrolled into some University to become such a thing before hand. Would that be possible or am I setting my aspirations too high? Cheers.Mágnussen8 17h

1d 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!Tethenar412 1d
1d 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.Cathríon131 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.*Yabu367 1d
2d Looking for help with Biography So you may have noticed I'm looking to add Faarbatos to my roster of RP characters. I would like to do a very untraditional night elf, in the sense of him not at all acting like a night elf. Here's what I have so far: - He was rebellious in his childhood. - He despises his parents to no end. - He's relatively young, meaning maybe a hundred or so. - He's a mercenary assassin. Takes contracts to eliminate certain people (not looking to do PvP, just some quest mobs for RP's sake) - He's not very much interested in romance and acts awkwardly and overpolitely around women he actually finds pretty. Others he just treats indifferently. - He enjoys fighting and watching fights but tends to get overexcited when doing the latter. He's cool and collected during the former. - Doesn't like night elf leadership due to the first two points. And that's about it. My first question would be that are there actually any night elves around his age? It is very important to his character that he wasn't around during the War of the Ancients or the following centuries. I'm questioning night elven reproduction because in a society of immortals birth rate would have to be tightly controlled. I could imagine them even not having children at all. So am I breaking lore by making him young?Faarbatos11 2d
2d Choose a theme for the above poster. Cathrion was suggesting themes for my Shaman, I'd still stick to Manowar. but it gave me an idea for another forum thing that I can waste several hours of each day checking for updates upon. Pick a Musical theme that -YOU- think suits the above poster. Music is a good way to enrich our minds, even bad music. So let's share bands eh? Edit: I generally enjoy sharing heavy metal with people, hopefully people will enjoy it, if you don't want to listen, totally up to you. Edit: Finntroll is always a good answer!Grikkha404 2d

2d Creating new Demon Hunters/Illidari in RP General consensus thus far seems to be that this is basically impossible between the events of BC to that of Legion (outside of very specific and/or snowflakey scenarios). The novel suggests that even in the Black Temple it was a 1 in 5 chance of success at the best of times. With Great Leader Illidan now cordoned off (and the greater threat of the Legion dealt with), what do you think/hope/theorize will be the way forward for individuals who (either IC or OOC) want to become Demon Hunters/Illidari? I'm personally in two minds about this, and sort of want to lean towards it being possible but still very, very, rare and difficult. Plus any "new" Demon Hunters will not have the luxury (yay) of training in the Black Temple and being told they are/are not prepared by Illidan himself. Of course, there are still a few Demons to slay and fight and hunt but that's besides the point at this stage, though there is also the argument that since the Burning Legion as a whole is believed to have been vanquished, there should be no actual need to create new DHs, and so perhaps the Illidari council/Fel Hammer will not aid in this. Conversely, a part of me also believes that they would do it just in case. So they are prepared. Thoughts?Ryvoan7 2d

5d Looking for Help - Backstory Hello people, today I come here in the need of a bit of help, I could use the assistance of someone who knows much about blood elf lore to help me form a proper backstory for my character, aside from reading the Wowpedia pages or watching a few of Nobbel's videos, it's always nice to have someone right there and then who can say if a certain decision in the story is a good or bad idea. If you're willing to help, please add: Tiguron#2644 Thank you in advance for the help.Itharìs5 5d
5d How do you say Silvermoon City in Thalassian? So, I was roleplaying on my blood elf and was using thalassian phrases when speaking to a troll. When I was asked how to say Silvermoon City in thalassian, I had google it, but didn't found anything. Any clues?Alymanius4 5d
6d About Death knight battles in RP I've attempted to kill too many ebons in the past. They all seem to do the same bad emotes. I know you should ignore these people, but i have never ever met a decent DK roleplayer. I did some research, and found out that Saronite is a strong metal. But how strong is it? Can it do this: (Note: All these examples are events that has happened to me) ----------------- Me: Stabs sword through the death knight's throat. Darklordofblooddarknessblackdeath: does not feel any pain, and attempts to kick him away. ---------------- Me: throws a grenade in the direction of the ebon. Deathlordofdarknessandpaindeath: does not get a single wound from the explosion. He swings his sword at the goblin. ------------- I have a death knight on my 'bounty list', and he needs to get !@#-kicked. But how can i kill them? xDZeeto30 6d
14 Jan Green dragon with worgen curse RP? So I've had an idea. I always wanted to try RPing a dragon and a worgen but never got around ot it. So now I've had the crazy idea of doing both at the same time. I had thought up a really cool backstory of Ysera sending the character to investigate the worgen curse and the dragon itself getting bitten then jsut blends in and escapes Gilneas with the other survivors. Would a dragon RP be frowned upon? How do I explain I can't shift to my 'true form'? Has it ever been done? I find it could be really fun.Lytariel10 14 Jan

13 Jan Is it possible to do this? So I have this idea for this character that I would love to ask if it is possible to do. So here it is: My Orc, an Shaman of both the Earthern Ring and an proud member of the Horde, refused Garrosh’s orders to go to Pandaria since he thought that more bloodshed at that time was madness. So, is that possible?Durogg7 13 Jan

11 Jan Has the roleplaying community moved to Argent Dawn? *A looming silence held the once sprawling vale in a stranglehold. The lone troll stood wondering, picking uneasily at the dried blood on his axe while chewing on a pair of dwarf fingers...* Lately I've come back from a 6 year long break from the game and I found that my heart-guild Second Gurubashi Empire - and seemingly all other RP-guilds - have vanished from Defias Brotherhood. I've been looking at posts here, and it looks like people are still doing active roleplaying on Argent Dawn. Is this correct? I've always had a thing for troll rp - I mean how could [Big Voodoo Mask] [Jin'Do's Judgement] and Stranglethorn Vale -not- produce great RP?! What say you the good people of the roleplaying community?Kethxah20 11 Jan

11 Jan Your Different RP Characters! So I like imagining up different RP characters. Which ones are your favourite and who do you RP the most with? Martok wants to know!! (so he can give them cake!) I'll start! No 1. Martok (Orc Mage): The goofy lovable peon mage who means well and feeds cake to everyone even alliance who poke at him! Smitten by innkeeper Gryshka who doesn't even know he exists! No 2. Voidstress (BE Priest): An elf who was seduced by the succubi sisters (sisters of pain & pleasure) to "serve" the illidari. Suffers from nightmares to this day. Was freed by a group of horde adventurers who were out to kill Illidan. No 3. Pahthor (Orc Hunter): This guys is no 3 only cos hes been my longest played toon ever (and only proper 110-to a certain extent). No real RP behind him except that he adores Rexxar and the Frostwolves. He also the only one who has the most achievs, reps etc so cant be bothered to repeat the same with Martok/Voidstress.

09 Jan Working Class/Outcast/Hobo Guild AD I've been considering getting back into roleplaying, I remember being in a guild on AD in Cata I think, where we roleplayed as a band of outcasts made up of normal people who were tired of getting screwed over by all the kings and lords. But I must have deleted my old char at some point because I can't find him, and I don't remember the name of the guild... Does anyone know if something like this still exists?Shambakriger0 09 Jan

09 Jan Azeroth's dating profiles. Hello all it just struck me that in our dating threads we 100% based our decisions upon small replies and looks, but never really ever get to know anything about the person truly beyond that! Fear not make your dating profile and maybe people will judge you less. Name: Sariku Darksun. Occupation: Horde Champion. Hobbies: Engineering. Preference: Not picky. Things that makes me laugh: the tormenting screams of my enemies. Things that makes me sad: the Light. What I like to do on my day offs: Evening strolls. Social spots: Due to circumstances, I am not the most social of people. What do I expect from a dating partner? :That he or she will love me for whom, and what I am..Not trying to change me. Now then friends how does your profile look?Sariku24 09 Jan
07 Jan How to RP Void Elf Warlock I want to roll Void Elf Warlock. To be honest, I am not Roleplayer. But I still like to feel some reflection in story. I mean, my class must make sense to me. I quite studied Warlock (how he works) and it turned out he is purely based in Fel. It was surprising to me, I thought he works with Void too, but it turned out he does not. Even Affliction's Shadow Magic is Fel. Going back to topic; now that I want to be Warlock who studies Fel, how can I be Void Elf? It certainly feels stupid to study two pretty hard subjects (Fel, Void) at the same time and I think main issue of that is that Void Elf feels more like a Class for Blood Elfs (one extra class where you can be second class as well). So how can someone roleplay Void Elf Warlock? It requires mastering two subjects, Void and Fel and as far as I know that's insanely (no pun) hard which lorewise makes my character insanely (pun here) unlikely.Whisperer12 07 Jan
07 Jan Slavic style warrior, and idea's for help Hello, I am wondering for race idea's on a Slavic type warrior, and examples of how I could get around explaining it within lore. He'll most likely be in plate mail, wielding a sabre/axe and shield. Please give me some inspiration and thoughts on how this could be accomplished, thanks !Khurdain10 07 Jan
07 Jan Discussion about clan-guilds in Horde We see them all the time; the orcish clans hanging around in Orgrimmar or any other Horde settlement or in lands that belongs to the Horde. I do not mind them at all, even if 99,99% of the clans are playing out more as warbands than a actually clan. But lorewise, wouldn't a clan within the Horde be wrong because if I am not mistaken, the Warchief (Thrall back then) disbanded all the clans in the Horde?Gworn1 07 Jan
06 Jan [A/H/N] (Rp) The Grand Campaign Map (6.1.2018) Hello, all roleplayers and those interested in roleplaying. I have now thought to add all roleplaying orders into a "grand campaign" map. I did put earlier only rp-pvp orders from other server, but thought to expand and put there what there is in ic on the different rp servers, for possible cross-realm activities. The map so far (work in progress clearly, updated on 6.1.2018): (prefer downloading the original, since the map is very high resolution) https://ibb.co/jEx4hG So in short I'd like to add every roleplaying guild info into the map with their description. Either I'll ask the answers for some info, wait for a reply to this thread, or pick those up from rp guild list/recruitment threads. However I prefer that guilds provide their info on this, but will see how many will. So for rp guilds I'd ask these in particular: Order name - This means the guild name in game, so people can ask from the right direction. Server - Game server the guild is on. Rp or Rp-PvP? Either rp or rp-pvp. Faction - Alliance/Horde/Neutral (Name of the specific affiliation of the neutral order) Race - The race(s) which the characters of the order consist of or accepts, when there are members accepted from specific race(s), in other case "all Alliance/all Horde" is enough. Primary location - The main base/settlement the order uses, if it's within a capital city the name of the capital city is fine. Secondary location - The secondary base/settlement the order uses, if it's within a capital city the name of the capital city is fine. Any other settlement/location the order uses in a continual manner - If there is regular use of a settlement/location, put those here, if numerous separate simply with comma. In character purpose - The in character purpose of the order Where the loyalty of the order is - Where the order takes its orders from mainly. Any other information on the order - What more one wants to say Short Description - Part from recruitment post for example. The following isn't concerning orders in particular, but can ofc: This much said, I have another set of questions, which concerns specially in character important locations. So if you happen to know a location that has changed ic and that is still active, please mention a location with what has changed, also some short explanation what the change ic is due from. In character environmental changes: Flooded locations Plagued locations Wall Broken bridge Tunnel The valuable resources, if you know a place with such, please mention, and also the owner of it: In character valuable resources: Gold Weapons/Armor Stockpile Ore/Metals Supply Storage The important locations in character, with following meaning, add short description: Important in character event locations: Battle site - date if possible Sacred Location Foul Location This is work in progress, more ideas welcome what to add, so I'll add them.Reyxor2 06 Jan
06 Jan General RP SPOILER Chat BfA edition #1 As we've had during past spoiler-heavy discussions, here's a seperate thread so people can discuss spoilers for the next expansion without alienating anyone wanting to avoid them in our normal General RP Chat threads. Deliberately not posting spoilers in this first post so that there's no risk of hovering over the thread and seeing unwanted spoilers.Tyrinne439 06 Jan
06 Jan Event in Silithus question - Spoiler! Hello! I have a thought. Spoiler warning! I'm hosting a history/lore event in Silithus in a few weeks where we talk about what happened there and I'm worried about phasing. I don't raid much myself, so my question goes out to those that done it vs those that haven't. Is Silithus phased now depending on this? We're going to travel from Cenarion Hold to Ahn'Qiraj, and I rather not have half the group in one phase and the others in the other. On that note: When will you ICly acknowledge its presence? Good to know aswell. Thank you for reading!Kilgun2 06 Jan
