Re: Bad guy dos and donts

That's why we have one set of game rules for everyone. We do, but this hasn't been how it's been done. Good players appear to be defined as the ones who do nothing, cause no action, and in short play the part of an NPC or as those who are sufficiently in the favor of certain GMs to be considered su...

Re: Thanks

Quite nice indeed :). It feels like a whole new game! Leveling seems to be quite difficult though, and dying rather easy. But I definitely like how the monsters are spread out now, it really makes the map come alive. Partying and experience sharing is possible, and they already add an additional tea...

Banduk, whoa I didn't know old deck maid had so much soul to her haha :lol:

As everyone departs, the theme song for the last and final quest!

Re: Tol Vanima

Meanwhile on board the decks of the Tol Vanima, a tall but slim figure may be seen balancing like a bird up on the rigging. With one limb touching down and the other outstretched, he leans forwards gracefully giving off a buoyant air. Suddenly, a big black bird alights, amidst a flapping of wings. "...

All the elves today, what a gathering :P

And at the end, the face-off finale with Black Coat and fiery Protectress both was fantastic. Thanks! :)

Re: Town Guard of Troll's Bane / Stadtwache von Trolls Bane

Haven't seen any thefts O wise magistrate, but I have seen you throwing your weight around along with Sean. It looked like you thought yourselves the king and queen of the town respectively. Barbaric attacks made on the pretext of town guarding. How does it make you feel to prey on people like that?...

Re: Ingame Interferences

I privately call them "the untouchables". The lowest caste in Hindu India? :) However I too have found the average Illarion GM to be ban-happy. By this, I mean pulling the trigger after hearing and considering only one side. Perhaps there isn't much for many GMs to do and they leap at the chance to...

Thank you all for again making Vanima the place to be at. It was great to be able to brainstorm this idea of a carnival and see it bear fruit.

Re: The Government of Troll's Bane

This I do confirm. As a gesture of my goodwill, I have undertaken this step of agreeing to act with the utmost pacifism.

May those who perhaps harbor doubt be assured, I wish only to play music in this town and if possible bring back the days when people had smiles on their faces.

Personal vendettas aside, Srrt, you might still want to reconsider your choice of profession. I have seen you jump to conclusions without most of the facts so eager have you been to judge and condemn. Word on the street is that you're about as open as a clam and more likely to snap.

Re: Ingame Interferences

You're taking things a bit too personally I think. The game was lagging, and I had just gone to do something else. Really no offense was intended. Sorry you had to wait, but that's the way it goes. If you want a rerun, then come on back again. If not, I'm sure there'll be other chances. Response to ...

Re: Ceridern Garden

Amidst the lazy, laconic plucking of a lute, a soft yet thrillingly airy sound can be heard. The notes of this flute seem to speak of travails gone and sorrows had. Still, wondrously, a sense of lasting hope permeates throughout, like a gust of the freshest coursing through the forest. Invigoratingl...

Creative measures sound great, but how about not playing your guard as all seeing and all knowing as well? After all, costumes can get pretty creative too :) For chasing, why not be more disciplined about setting a limit to how long and far you will chase for? As we know, the game doesn't control fo...

Well, those are some good points minus the gut hanging part :) It might help to note though that giving the option of run or die is really not giving much at all. After all, I thought we are here to have fun and role-play rather than show off our pointer key maneuvering skills. So when that happens ...

I play a likable character as many good aligned chars will attest to, but what does it matter if you are personally unable to appreciate a character?

Ingame Interferences

What do you do when your role-play is interrupted in game? What if the interrupter is intent on displacing you from the roleplaying scene altogether? This ranges from people slashing non stop at your character ( when it is clear they aren't bringing down your health ) to people who insist on attempt...

Re: Roleplay Do's and Don't(s)

What's the point of this if we're just going to be stating the obvious?

Qeewee, it's a good thing for there to be idealistic characters. Just as it's a good thing that there are more pragmatic ones as well.

Re: Roleplay Do's and Don't(s)

I strongly disagree. An idealistic character has every bit the place that a more "down to earth" character might have. Elves and dwarves is a good example of this. Much of fantasy storytelling revolves around the clash and contrast between the two precisely because elves represent all that is ideal ...

Sounds like a good character for an acting troupe.

Why not? Mary Sue is a valid archetype, and archetypes make captivating stories by virtue of literally being larger than life.
