I'm confident I will have enough time to be there…What time is it?
Perhaps it is your imperfection that which grants you free will, that allows you to persevere against cosmically calculated odds. You prevailed where the Titans' own perfect creations have failed.

Shoot. School exists, so I can't make it.

For those that couldn't attend, here are the logs! The first couple of people are missing, though. Sorry!

Spoiler:
21:19:28 [Versich]: Hello. 'M Versich Devosh, played by Xigo. I'd like to see murlocs played more, because I'm the only bloomin' murloc player! Gosh dangit! On a more serious note, I don't care so much for race as far as roleplay is cocerned.
21:19:33 [Versich]: I'm hesitant to play... nothing, really. I'm pretty confident with all the races and classes. Heck, I've played a lot of things during my time as a GM. Demons, trees, even arcane elementals. Mmm. Arcane elementals. Flawless.
21:19:38 [Versich]: If I could multiclass, I would make a warrior/priest. It'd be cool to make a religious plate-wearing hammer-swinging warrior of the Light, and I wish that option was available to us. ... On a more serious note, I just dislike the idea of multiclassing.
21:19:40 [Versich]: Bathroom, brbr.
21:19:45 [Keirandra]: lol
21:20:03 [Lendri]: (It's part of the script!)
21:20:04 Reigen nods at Jonoth.
21:20:11 [Jonoth]: Ahoy there ladies, gents, plants, and animals! I'm Jonoth on the forum, and a whole bunch of characters in-game.
21:20:17 [Versich]: GET LOST, JONOTH.
21:20:25 [Jonoth]: BITE MEH!
21:20:28 [Jonoth]: I want haz more Dwarf RP. I love their attitude and history, and I look forward to developments from the whole Council of Three Hammers to create solid interDwarf conflict. I just have to decide what Dwarf it'll be.
21:20:41 [Jonoth]: I can proudly say that the final race I was hesitant to try has become a character I enjoy a lot. And I'm sure others look forward to possibly murdering the Blood Elf Quennath in the future.
21:20:54 [Jonoth]: I find, and recently had to relearn for myself, great characters are in the personality, not the class. And for the most part, classes can already cover a wide array of fighting types.
21:21:20 Jonoth bows down graciously.
21:21:21 [Reigen]: See, Blood elves can be loved by all.
21:21:24 Reigen flexes her muscles. Oooooh so strong!
21:21:31 [Jonoth]: Dorfs still the best
21:21:37 Jonoth quietly snickers to himself.
21:21:38 [Reigen]: Pfft, nonsense.
21:22:00 [Reigen]: Urg, its that -skarner- player. What a joke. I -suppose- I feel bad enough to let you have your turn now.
21:22:15 [Lendri]: Karma is still the worst.
21:22:24 Reigen makes a rude gesture at Lendri.
21:22:24 Reigen makes a rude gesture at Lendri.
21:22:27 [Reigen]: Go on!
21:22:29 [Lendri]: Hihi~. I'm Lendri, Lendri on the forums. (Seems to be the theme around here.) I've been on CoTH for around three years now. =)
21:22:33 [Lendri]: As a race I'd like to roleplay more, I'd say it'd probably be nightelves or gnomes. They seem interesting enough, though their histories are quite complex and I'm still trying to learn them. =)
21:22:44 [Lendri]: I'm iffy about roleplaying humans, since they seem to plain to me. I can't really get into a story I like with them. Other races provide a much larger range of history and development to work from.
21:22:53 [Lendri]: As a dual-class for Lendri? I've always wanted her to be a warrior-priest. It suits her style perfectly and would make for great character developement with her use for sharp weapons and heavier cloth armor.
21:22:59 Lendri nods!
21:23:10 Notarius frowns with disappointment at Lendri.
21:23:12 [Notarius]: We are not that plain. D:
21:23:17 Notarius cries.
21:23:26 [Reigen]: Sssh. Hear that? i think someone is trying to be a person.
21:23:31 Jared brushes up against Notarius and farts loudly.
21:23:33 Jared nods at Notarius.
21:23:38 [Notarius]: Harrharrharr.
21:23:50 Notarius smells Jared. Wow, someone stinks!
21:23:59 [Reigen]: Atius! Who is distrubingly naked on my screen. Oh god my eyes.
21:24:05 [Atius]: You love it.
21:24:07 [Atius]: :|
21:24:18 Jared smells of sunshine and romance, Notarius.
21:24:21 [Lendri]: I wish he was naked on mine.. =(
21:24:26 [Keirandra]: ....
21:24:29 [Reigen]: :|
21:24:34 [Reigen]: Go on!
21:24:54 [Jared]: (Intolerable fraternisation. Report to Inquisitor Cain for disciplinary action immediately.)
21:25:00 Jared stares Lendri down.
21:25:17 Lendri flexes her muscles. Oooooh so strong!
21:25:17 [Atius]: Hi.. I'm Piken on the forums, Atius right hurr. I've been on and off on CotH for.. five years. A race I'd like to RP more would probably be Gnomes, as funny as that is if you know me(I'm a huge Gnome advocate). They're my favorite race and are great.-
21:26:14 [Atius]: I generally stick to RP with my Atius, Aiden(Human), and Ceredor(NElf), with a few others about. Way too many alts. Uhm. I got nothin' right now.
21:26:17 [Atius]: So yeah.
21:26:20 [Atius]: Move on. :|
21:26:30 Jonoth gently pats Atius.
21:26:56 [Reigen]: If you could multi-class Atius, what would you do?
21:28:15 [Atius]: ..That's tough. On Atius, an idea was for Priest-Necromancer(Mage), which would be cool. But not sure it would really fit him anymore as a character. But still a concept I liked.
21:28:47 Reigen nods.
21:29:02 [Reigen]: Is that a dilly I smell?
21:29:04 Reigen peers at you searchingly.
21:29:12 [Angus]: Yes indeedy.
21:29:18 [Angus]: Herro everyone. I am Dilly on the forums. I imagine most of you don't really know me since I've been fairly... well, not inactive, but, uh, quiet lately.
21:29:22 [Angus]: Me, I'd love to RP night elves (hehe, obviously) and tauren more. My love for their basic concepts aside, I think they're among the most adaptable races in this game in the sense that they come with an absolutely huge range of possibilities as far as
21:29:29 [Angus]: characters and roleplay go. Of course, nothing in WoW beats humans in that regard, but still. Their lore is a deep well to draw from if you want to create a rich and original character, and, in the case of nelves, they have -loads- of exciting
21:29:36 [Angus]: storylines going on that you can mess around with in your RP.
21:29:44 [Angus]: The races I'm -not- too keen to try are gnomes, dwarves, and draenei, in that order. I've tried to play each of these at least a couple of times in the past, but those attempts didn't exactly go well. I find it more than a bit difficult to get into
21:29:51 [Angus]: their heads, and, well, that's where the fun ends - I don't think I could portray them well without struggling with each emote. And, in the case of gnomes, I just can't think of any concept that would appeal to me.
21:29:58 [Angus]: As far as multiclassing goes, I really don't know. Honestly. No idea. Sorry. ._.;;
21:30:37 [Reigen]: Clearly a druid warlock. That makes so much sense, right? Nelf druid-lock.
21:30:54 [Notarius]: Druid DK.
21:30:55 Notarius nods.
21:30:55 [Linevi]: Draenei Warlock would be sweet.
21:31:00 Angus >:C
21:31:01 Notarius smacks Linevi upside the head.
21:31:03 [Notarius]: Getewei
21:31:04 Telah nods at Linevi.
21:31:12 Linevi hugs Telah.
21:31:15 [Jonoth]: ...don't laugh. I totally thought about undead druid, and the decrepit animal forms
21:31:17 [Reigen]: Now for the...human.
21:31:25 [Notarius]: >:I
21:31:29 [Notarius]: ((I apologize for any missing "L"s "B"s and "N"s...My Keyboard is derpy. Bear with me.))
21:31:31 Notarius nods.
21:31:41 [Notarius]: Hello! Aethon here, previously known as Chedarcheesy. I've been on CoTH for a year now. I have a lot of unknown characters, because I create too much un-needed alts. Damn me, right?
21:31:50 [Notarius]: I'd like to see more Tauren RP, because I just like their culture, their lifestye and their whole being. They kinda remind me of myself, which is kinda exciting, but sadly, they are the least played race, so yeah...More Tauren for a brighter future!
21:31:59 [Notarius]: Draenei and Dwarves are hard for me to play as a race and the classes: Paladins and Warlocks And those combined, of course. They seem too strict for me. Especially the Draenei stuff. I like to RP freely and form my own characters.
21:32:07 [Notarius]: death theme. ((Sorry, couldn't fit.))
21:32:11 [Notarius]: Wat.
21:32:15 [Notarius]: Wrong mac.
21:32:15 [Notarius]: D:
21:32:20 [Reigen]: WAY TO GOOOO
21:32:22 [Lendri]: (Lumiaannnn!!!)
21:32:26 [Notarius]: As for multiclassing, I would go for a warrior. I always liked the idea of a plated spellcaster. But Paladins are too "good" for me, and they can't use fancy arcane magic. So yeah, a plated-mage would be cool.
21:32:32 Notarius hugs Lendri.
21:32:37 Lendri blows Notarius a kiss.
21:33:34 [Reigen]: Look at this one. All evil and shadowy. Take your turn before the paladins go on a rampage!
21:33:43 [Linevi]: Hello, folks! This here would be Rowgen. As you can see, I put on my best dress for the occasion. If I had wanted to show you my true colors, though . . . I'd bring the Queen's colors. :|
21:33:51 Jared stands at attention and salutes.
21:33:55 [Xanthe]: :|
21:33:55 Linevi salutes Jared with respect.
21:34:03 [Linevi]: I'm very passionate about my orcs, forsaken and night elves, but I wish there was more RP for other races. Blood elves and humans is a given, but I rarely see stuff like gnomes, trolls and tauren. I mean, I see them . . .
21:34:13 [Linevi]: . . . But I'd like to see more . . . Traditional approaches to the races, I suppose. More about their culture. Draenei's also something I've been trying to get into . . . With varied degrees of success. I have tried all, at least! Several times!
21:34:27 Linevi cheers!
21:34:33 [Linevi]: These same races are also races I'm hesitant to try out. That's mostly because I've had little to do with them, and I really don't have many to learn from - at least I never get around to it. I'd love to learn, though.
21:34:47 [Linevi]: Shadow Priest/Hunter, yesplease. Something Dark Ranger-ish with a Shadowfiend-like creature for my pet . . . And traditional Shadow Priest abilities like mind readin' and control and all that stuff we know and love.
21:35:04 [Linevi]: Then again, we have multi-classing rules for a reason. It'd get messy without it, in my opinion. I'm pretty much content.
21:35:21 Jared shakes his fist.
21:35:22 Xanthe gives Jared a high five!
21:35:29 Jared gives Xanthe a high five!
21:35:42 [Reigen]: Gee, I wonder who likes -forsaken-.
21:35:43 [Notarius]: I meanwut
21:35:48 [Notarius]: Don'tbanmeplease
21:35:51 [Jared]: Representin'.
21:36:11 [Reigen]: And for dinner, we have Telah!
21:36:12 [Emilyn]: *cough*Until your brain rots away and you're all just zombies..*cough*
21:36:16 Reigen nods at Telah.
21:36:26 Telah pouts at everyone around him.
21:36:33 [Telah]: 1. What is your Forum Name?
21:36:41 Jared pouts at Emilyn.
21:36:43 [
Telah]: 1. What is your Forum Name?
21:36:43 [Telah]: A: Bovel.
21:36:43 [Telah]: Also known as the camel or self-crowned king of draenei lore.
21:36:55 [Telah]: 2. What race do you want RP more and why?
21:36:55 [Telah]: A: Dwarf. (Thought I was gonna say draenei, eh?!)
21:36:55 [Telah]: I personally spend most my hours RPing on a draenei, though I'd like others to embrace the Exiled Ones so the community would grow.
21:37:01 Jared welcomes Gavrill.
21:37:06 [Telah]: Of all the races I really like, dwarves are the one I get the least chances to RP and I would love to actually have an active dwarf on CotH. I -am- currently working on a new dwarven character for Cataclysm.
21:37:09 Gavrill nods at Jared.
21:37:17 [Telah]: 3. What race/class are you hesitant to try and why?
21:37:17 [
Telah]: A: Orcs.
21:37:17 [Telah]: Because it is a race I've never researched deeply and I feel like I'd not come up to the same standard as other orc RPers on the server. I don't thing half-assed.
21:37:24 Jonoth cheers at Telah!
21:37:26 [Telah]: 4. If you had the ability to multi-class the character you came on, what class combo would you do?
21:37:26 [Telah]: A: Priest-Mage.
21:37:26 [Telah]: Because I feel that with the immense lifespans of the draenei, being -just- a priest doesn't properly reflect that.
21:37:42 Telah bows down graciously.
21:37:45 [Reigen]: Priestmage. Thats an interesting one.
21:37:55 [Jared]: Well, naaru technology being what it is . . .
21:38:00 Jared nods at Telah.
21:38:01 [Reigen]: Annnnd...time for our first greeny!
21:38:02 Reigen waves at Gremak.
21:38:12 [Gremak]: Hello I am the mighty Grembomb. I'd like to role play on my Orc a lot more because they have rich lore and are so versatile to role play. I'd love to get more Orcish RP going as there is so much potential there.
21:38:22 Linevi cheers at Gremak!
21:38:28 [Gremak]: Gnomes simply because I don't really know much about them and I came to WoW from Warcraft 3 and felt they didn't really have any backstory there as the others did. Paladins for a class as I don't think I could play one as well as others do.
21:38:28 Notarius booos!
21:38:36 Telah waves at Troovo.
21:38:40 [Gremak]: I'd love to do something like a warrior-shaman combo. Like swinging and axe and causing rocks to rise up from the ground or something cool like that.
21:39:00 [Linevi]: A man after my heart. <3
21:39:00 [Notarius]: *Cough*Ench Shamans*Cough*?
21:39:14 Reigen waves at Keirandra.
21:39:18 [Keirandra]: Apologies for my short macros, I had limited time to make them cause I forgot the Meet and Greet and this is my first one.
21:39:25 [Keirandra]: My forum name is Maarten777.
21:39:28 [Keirandra]: I don't have an answer to this question, I like most races and classes.
21:39:33 [Keirandra]: I guess that would be gnome for race and the priest for class. Why? I really don't know.
21:39:37 [Keirandra]: As for my last question, I would say I really don't know what I would do.
21:39:45 Linevi shakes her fist at Keirandra.
21:39:56 [Reigen]: And...here comes our Orc PSA.
21:40:03 Reigen blows Kretol a kiss.
21:40:03 Keirandra cheers at Kretol!
color=#888888]21:40:08[/color] Kretol blinks.
21:40:14 [Kretol]: Hello, folks! My forum name is Kretol! I have been around since time immeasurable! (Well, in relation to the server, that is ;) Specifically, I think we've been around since... September of 2007)
21:40:23 [Kretol]: I would like to RP more as... well, I could just say orcs considering I don't RP much to begin with, and increasing that amount of RP would probably be a good thing!
21:40:33 [Kretol]: I think I'd be rather hesitant to try playing cloth casters, as I've generally been more interested in RPing melee characters. Perhaps I'm just unsure as to where to set my restraints with them.
21:40:46 [Kretol]: As for the multi-classing bit, I would so totally go for... actually, my particular spec for shaman (Enhancement) is kind of already multi-classing shaman and warrior! ;) But to be serious, going further along that path would be interesting for me.
21:41:06 [Linevi]: RP with us, Kretol. Step down from the heavens and claim your right to fun.
21:41:13 [Jonoth]: ^
21:41:20 Keirandra agrees with Linevi.
21:41:21 [Reigen]: You're the admin. You can play whatever you please. :|
21:41:31 [Notarius]: You're like Mundo.
21:41:33 [Reigen]: NOW FOR PART TWO OF THE ORC PSA. The one, the only, Grakor!
21:41:40 [Emilyn]: I RP'd with Kretol before, and I LOVED it!
21:41:41 [Linevi]: He could play Deathwing! No need to worry about your limitations, amirite?
21:41:45 Kretol quietly snickers to himself.
21:42:20 Grakor quietly snickers to himself.
21:42:21 [Grakor]: I'm Grakor456 on the forums, obviously! I know this will be shocking, but I am a firm believer that there is never enough orc RP. Because orcs are amazing.
21:42:24 [Grakor]: I'm generally not a fan of elves. They're just not an archetype I enjoy, I also can't take gnomes seriously. And multi-classing? Not sure! Warrior isn't a good fit for Grak, so eh, dunno!
21:44:14 Reigen waves at Gavrill.
21:44:22 Linevi cheers at Grakor!
21:44:24 Gavrill nods at Reigen.
21:44:33 [Gavrill]: Sup. Name's Whym on the forums. Even if rarely about these days. Anyway. I personally would appreciate not race-specific RP, but theme specific RP. But - so I won't avoid the question, Undead. As for hesitance in regards of races, it'd be gnomes.
21:44:45 Jared salutes Gavrill with respect.
21:44:57 [Linevi]: I agree, yeah. Theeeeemes. :c
21:45:18 Lendri gives Gavrill a thumbs up.
21:45:45 [Gavrill]: As I can't really take them serious, but that's a personal matter. They're just... ridiculous? Maybe. As for multi-classing? Rogue and Mage. The idea of a smug fool who blinks around while jabbing people with a poisoned rapier is magnificent.
21:46:21 [Reigen]: And next is-...oh god. Do I have to? Do we ened a forsaken PSA?
21:46:24 [Xanthe]: Who is this kid?
21:46:26 [Jared]: I . . . uh . . . what am I doing? Oh right!
21:46:27 Xanthe peers at Jared searchingly.
21:46:36 [Notarius]: ...
21:46:38 [Grakor]: ...
21:46:38 Notarius looks at Jared and covers his face with his palm.
21:46:42 [Jared]: . . .
21:46:45 [Jared]: Uh.
21:46:48 [Jared]: Y'mean . . .
21:46:51 Jidaeo cheers!
21:46:53 [Jared]: This isn't Gilneas?
21:46:59 [Emilyn]: Wrong macro, nublet
21:47:00 [Reigen]: No...not it is not.
21:47:00 [Jared]: CARA YOU NEVER TELL ME WHERE WE'RE GOING
21:47:01 Xanthe quietly snickers to herself.
21:47:03 [Reigen]: This is the meet and greet.
21:47:04 [Xanthe]: I'M SORRY
21:47:05 [Versich]: Get out.
21:47:06 [Jared]: . . . Hey, look! The Horde sanctions this action!
21:47:07 Xanthe cries.
21:47:08 Jared points over yonder.
21:47:10 [Versich]: GMs can't do anything right, sheesh.
21:47:11 [Jared]: Anyway uhhh . . .
21:47:13 [Jared]: AHEM.
21:47:16 [Jared]: Right.
21:47:20 [Jared]: I'll just be here.
21:47:21 [Jared]: Hey, I'm Sol. Since misser Hawk's resignation at the beginning last year, I have since stepped up to occupy the post of Official Whatwhat Fish and Chips Tea-Drinker on the GM team. I've been serving admirably in this position for eight months now.
21:47:38 [Jared]: A race I'd like more engagement with is . . . FORSAKEN. MORE FORSAKEN. LORADERON IS ET--No, no, but I'd like to make a serious attempt at playing a draenei soon, they're intriguing but I've never been able to get them right.
21:47:50 Telah cheers at Jared!
21:47:53 [Jared]: One race/class combo I'm really hesitant to try is the draenei paladin. They're basically the default archetype for that race and I don't think I could get the nobility, the wisdom, the conviction:compassion ratio right. :(
21:47:58 Gantrithor puts his arm around Jared's shoulder.
21:48:04 [Jared]: For my own self-serving interests, one thing I'd really like to multiclass is Warriors and Shadow Priests. Jared here's religious zealotry means that a kind of Paladin of the Forgotten Shadow would be a very logical step for him.
21:48:29 [Reigen]: Shadow paladin. I approve.
21:48:32 [Reigen]: 3/3
21:48:34 [Jared]: Dark Lady watch over you. Good day.
21:48:38 Jared waves.
21:48:46 [Jared]: . . . those two'll go away in a minute. Don't mind them.
21:48:47 Jared points over yonder.
21:48:52 [Xanthe]: I mind them L|
21:48:53 [Reigen]: And now for the weather. I sense Sunshine in our future!
21:48:59 [Gavrill]: We needn't look at your atrocity, then.
21:49:03 Gavrill gently pats Jared.
21:49:13 [Gantrithor]: Flowers :D
21:49:20 [Xanthe]: Howdy, all. I'm Caravan (also known as Cara, Carabee, Carabean, Carabanjo, Catavan). I play Xanthe as my primary main.
21:49:41 Keirandra cheers at Xanthe!
21:49:57 [Xanthe]: I play most races, really, by request but I've been unable to get into orcs by sheer inability to find a group. So, I have my orcgnome Caravan :|
21:50:04 Jared applauds at Xanthe. Bravo!
21:50:18 Notarius claps excitedly for Xanthe.
21:50:20 [Emilyn]: I got Spike the Caravaneer to match :3
21:50:36 [Xanthe]: Despite having a handful of humans, they're not really my 'thing' unless they're from Kul Tiras. I'm pretty OK with most classes.
21:51:19 [Xanthe]: As for what I'd multi-class Xanthe as, I'd greatly enjoy the opportunity to do [Holy-spec] Priest with her Hunter. A few characters are nudging her towards Holy Archerdom and I'd like for her to bulk that up with priest skills + healing.
21:51:29 [Xanthe]: As healing would totally be her thing.
21:51:31 Xanthe curtsies.
21:51:35 [Telah]: Yeah. Go on. Break my heart!
21:51:41 [Xanthe]: GET OVER IT, TELAH
21:51:47 Telah cries.
21:51:51 Xanthe smacks Telah upside the head.
21:51:52 Jonoth gently pats Telah.
21:51:58 [Gantrithor]: Pfft.
21:52:02 [Reigen]: And...for our daily dose of manly.
21:52:08 Gantrithor flexes his muscles. Oooooh so strong!
21:52:20 [Gantrithor]: Manly you say?
21:52:24 [Emilyn]: ...Capn's manly?
21:52:24 [Xanthe]: I fixed it.
21:52:26 [Reigen]: For a blue thing.
21:52:35 [Gantrithor]: There we go.
21:52:37 [Cellenar]: ... blueberry...
21:52:44 [Reigen]: Get on with it, gosh!
21:53:28 [Gantrithor]: Hello! I'm CappnRob! Aalso known as "CappnNoob", "That guy who got FH because he doesn't know when to quit", "Manliest CotHer", and "Herosparkle".
21:53:44 Xanthe is the manliest cother.
21:54:00 Jonoth will log Dunkhaan and outmaly you all.
21:54:03 [Reigen]: [Lets throw in 'disillusioned' as well.]
21:54:23 [Gantrithor]: The race I'd love to see more RP of.... is hard for me to say! Draenei and dwarves are always good, but I think what I crave the most is human nationalist RP.
21:54:45 Linevi reckons Xanthe is manlier than Cappn, at least.
21:54:47 [Gantrithor]: You know, focus on humans and their culture, and not just... blank slates for whatever.
21:54:56 Jared applauds at Gantrithor. Bravo!
21:54:58 Linevi applauds at Gantrithor. Bravo!
21:55:03 Linevi cheers at Gantrithor!
21:55:12 [Jared]: We have more culture and we're dead. :|
21:55:23 Gavrill gives Jared a high five!
21:55:27 [Versich]: Forsaken's the best human race.
21:55:28 Xanthe puts some aloe vera on Cappn for that burn.
21:55:29 [Emilyn]: Pfft. Forsaken -were- Humans, it's the same culture, nub
21:55:40 [Jared]: Nope. Lordaeron. Eternal. etc
21:55:48 [Jared]: anyway shh go on cap :B
21:55:49 [Notarius]: Dark Lady.
21:56:00 [Gantrithor]: The race and class? Class is maybe Death Knight... I just can't wrap my mind around it. Race? Definitely orcs. I can't explain it, I just can not into orcs... though I've come to better understand their lore in recent times. Eh.
21:56:25 [Lendri]: [Cappn gets demoted from Forum Helper for dissing orcs.]
21:56:32 [Lendri]: (xP)
21:56:34 [Versich]: [User was banned from this server.]
21:56:35 [Gantrithor]: And multiclassing? Ehhh, Gan isn't much for that. I guess maybe shaman, to emphasis the SPIRIT CHAMPION element, but... eh. EH.
21:56:35 [Notarius]: Lmao.
21:56:47 [Jared]: [Ban expires in: 100000000000000000000 days]
21:56:47 Grakor thinks Gantrithor has no room to call himself the manliest if he can't play the manliest race.
21:56:52 Grakor flexes his muscles. Oooooh so strong!
21:57:03 [Linevi]: [Ban expires in: 1000000000000000000000/0 days]
21:57:04 [Gantrithor]: My BE priest, Aryeon, is probs the only one I'd multiclass. MAGE PRIEST, represent.
21:57:05 [Jonoth]: lol
21:57:09 Reigen faints at the sight of Grakor.
21:57:18 [Gantrithor]: (also OP represent. PHENOMINAL COSMIC POWERRRR)
21:57:19 Linevi grins wickedly at Gantrithor.
21:57:20 [Jared]: I'm manlier than you and I'm dead. :|
21:57:28 [Gantrithor]: Hey, Hey grak.
21:57:30 Cellenar covers her face with her palm.
21:57:30 [Xanthe]: [Ittttty bitty living space]
21:57:39 [Reigen]: Blood elf represent!
21:57:43 Reigen salutes Astia with respect.
21:57:47 [Emilyn]: Blasphemy!
21:57:47 Astia flexes her muscles. Oooooh so strong!
21:57:50 [Gantrithor]: I'm manly enough to haul these busters. Can you haul these busters?
21:57:57 Gantrithor flexes at Grakor. Oooooh so strong!
21:58:01 [Astia]: Hello! My forum name is HolyHiveMind,
21:58:06 [Grakor]: I dunno, let me see.
21:58:09 Astia peers at Grakor searchingly.
21:58:14 [Astia]: ... Oh dear.
21:58:16 Rigley waves at Gantrithor.
21:58:22 Jared cackles maniacally at Grakor.
21:58:24 Xanthe gently pats Gantrithor.
21:58:25 Astia claps excitedly for Grakor.
21:58:25 Jared puts up his hand for a high five.
21:58:28 Gremak laughs.
21:58:33 Gantrithor flies back. With his swords as wings.
21:58:49 [Astia]: I would, at some point, like to RP Gnomes more. Think they're an interesting race that doesn't get enough attention.
21:58:50 Jared just holds it there. Chillin'. It's cool man. No beef.
21:58:53 Jared :'(
21:58:56 Gantrithor gives Gavrill a high five!
21:58:57 Xanthe cheers at Astia!
21:59:04 [Astia]: I'm hesitant to try Trolls and Dwarves, because despite peoples saying that the accent is easy I can never get it right in my eyes. 's a shame.
21:59:05 Gantrithor gives Jared a high five!
21:59:22 [Astia]: Their accents, rather.
21:59:38 [Astia]: Would definitely rogue/mage. Think'd be a cool combo, cuz of all the things you could think of to do.
21:59:39 Linevi knows the feel.
21:59:40 [Emilyn]: I have the same problem with my Irish accent IRL. People just don't understand me.
21:59:58 [Gavrill]: Irish accents are glorious.
22:00:04 Reigen waves at Amethine.
22:00:06 Emilyn gives Gavrill a high five!
22:00:11 [Amethine]: Oh gawd why me..
22:00:17 [Amethine]: My Forum Name is Alliicce. I don't have a race that I want to RP more because I already RP the ones I like. I'm not hestitant to RP any race or class because I do what I want. If I were to multiclass Amethine- Ha no. I'm good. Horrible idea.
22:00:17 [Gantrithor]: Protip: if you cant accent, dont worry with it.
22:00:28 [Amethine]: That is all...
22:00:33 [Gantrithor]: Character's more important than funny voices!
22:00:49 Amethine curls up into a ball and cries.
22:01:04 Xanthe gently pats Amethine.
22:01:17 Jared gently pats Amethine.
22:01:21 [Emilyn]: Oh, my turn already?
22:01:32 Emilyn cracks her knuckles, her fingers break.
22:01:32 [Reigen]: Yup. Wheres my fireworks?
22:01:47 [Emilyn]: ....THAT WAS -NOT- FUNNY.
22:01:50 [Emilyn]: Okay, yes it was.
22:01:54 [Emilyn]: PROCCEEDING
22:01:56 [Emilyn]: Well, none of you know this character, but I am Sunday12321 on the forums, I've been around for a bit over three and a half years now, and I'm known to the people as Demi or Doyle, my two most played chars! This char's gonna be a noble, should I get my t
22:02:03 [Emilyn]: I would definitely want to go deeper into Troll RP, their culture, their accent, their customs. It's all juicy goodness!
22:02:10 [Emilyn]: I'd say I am most hesitant to play orcs and Draenei because as much as I do know stuff about Azerothian races and their lore, I know -squat- about orcs and draenei. *shiver*
22:02:23 [Emilyn]: As for multi-classing, I'll say about Demi, because this char is brand new, made her two hours ago. As Demi I would multiclass... Hunter/Shaman, without a doubt. And with that, I thank you all for coming to this wonderful M&G, and
22:02:33 Emilyn bows down graciously.
22:02:41 [Emilyn]: And that failed because of TRP
22:02:49 [Reigen]: Excuses.
22:02:49 [Emilyn]: I meant to say "And I hope you all enjoy."
22:02:57 [Emilyn]: IT'S IN MY MACRO, OKAY
22:03:00 Reigen waves at Troovo.
22:03:03 [Reigen]: SURE IT IS.
22:03:03 [Troovo]: Greetings! I'm Ghurm on the forums. There are many races here that don't get enough RP, but overwhelmingly, finding Dwarf RP is like finding a needle in a haystack. Gnomes, Trolls, Night Elves, and DKs (I know that's not a race, but it's its own thing).
22:03:09 Emilyn cries.
22:03:23 Amethine hugs Emilyn.
22:03:26 [Emilyn]: ...Troovo farted.
22:03:45 [Troovo]: As for what I'm hesitant to RP, Blood Elves. There are plenty of active BE characters around, but they're all split up into their own groups.
22:04:34 [Troovo]: As for class combination, I feel alright with Troovo just being a hunter. Hwever, Eta, who is a shaman (which fits perfectly since she's a Spirit Walker), I wish I could control her pet like a hunter does.
22:04:51 [Troovo]: However*
22:04:55 [Troovo]: And that's all.
22:04:59 [Reigen]: And...now for the biggest troll on the server next to Xigo.
22:05:08 Teztez pets Versich.
22:05:11 Jonoth chuckles at Astia.
22:05:11 Notarius smacks Teztez upside the head.
22:05:19 [Teztez]: Evenin' everyone! On the forums I'm known as Spiky. I'd like to see both trolls and tauren's played more, but that'd be obvious by now, and more Xigo's. Don't see them enough. Both mentioned races have much more to offer than what's been done.
22:05:33 [Teztez]: I'd like to try out dwarves and draenei, I just can't get myself into playing them, though I'd want to try it out. Dwarves because they walk a fine line between silly and, well, actual characters, and, I suppose the same with Draenei.
22:05:46 [Teztez]: For an interesting multi-class combo for Teztez? I'd definately say Druid-Warrior, that concept appeals a lot to me in my head and I just have an easy time imagining Teztez in that light.
22:05:56 Teztez roars with bestial vigor. So fierce!
22:06:01 [Emilyn]: ...I once yelled at Xigo who flew by as a dragon and he burned down Psycho's warlock for it. Just sayin'.
22:06:04 [Teztez]: And that is all.
22:06:05 Teztez bows down graciously.
22:06:47 [Reigen]: And now Rigley, who has built half the things we RP in.
22:06:54 [Rigley]: First off.
22:06:55 Keirandra cheers at Rigley!
22:06:56 [Teztez]: 90%
22:06:58 [Emilyn]: All my /love
22:07:03 [Jared]: 95%
22:07:06 [Rigley]: Well, first off I can't seem to see my own chat messages.
22:07:09 [Rigley]: But--
22:07:09 [Keirandra]: 100%
22:07:11 Jidaeo claps excitedly for Rigley.
22:07:28 [Rigley]: Hi. I'm Rigley.
22:07:33 Jared applauds at Rigley. Bravo!
22:07:35 Jonoth greets Rigley warmly.
22:07:37 Jidaeo cheers at Rigley!
22:07:40 [Notarius]: Hi.
22:07:49 [Rigley]: I like dwarves and gnomes. Mostly because I enjoy their tech, even if it kinda is erratic.
22:07:56 [Rigley]: By extension, I'm gonna love me some goblins when we eventually hit Cata.
22:08:13 [Rigley]: Now, as far as hesitancy goes its probably elves, or tauren. I've actually been able to get into elves at times, but funny enough they always seem to be guards, so I'm not too sure what to make of that. But, there y'go.
22:08:16 Notarius joins the herd.
22:08:31 [Rigley]: I guess as an opposite to the tech bit, I actually have trouble with the 'nature-y' races.
22:08:38 Linevi scowls at Rigley.
22:08:44 [Rigley]: As for multiclassing, I'm generally not a big fan of the idea. I do find stuff like spellswords (of the duelist variety, so mage/rogue) to be a pretty fun idea though, so I guess that's something.
22:09:01 [Rigley]: And I'm out of snowballs.
22:09:15 Reigen whistles at Rigley.
22:09:18 [Reigen]: ...er
22:09:21 Reigen whistles at Somerley.
22:09:47 [Somerley]: Greetings. I'm 'Delta' on the forums.
22:10:00 Versich gives Somerley a high five!
22:10:22 Xanthe greets Somerley with a hearty hello!
22:10:30 [Somerley]: I enjoy playing night elves. They have a rich history to draw from, an intriguing social structure, and great diversity in terms of combative and spiritual paths! There's a lot you can do with 'em.
22:11:02 [Jared]: Traitor.
22:11:04 [Somerley]: I'm pretty secure playing most races, but I always feel a little hesitant in the role of Paladins, to be honest. I could just use more practice with them, I think.
22:11:08 Somerley glares angrily at Jared.
22:11:08 [Linevi]: . . . Aren't you forgetting something? Something . . . Rotty?
22:11:16 Linevi glares angrily at Somerley.
22:12:28 [Somerley]: Lastly... multi-classing. Death Knights are already a bit multi-classy, but maybe Warlock. They have some handy abilities.
22:12:50 Lendri hugs Atius.
22:12:52 Atius cuddles up against Lendri.
22:13:21 [Emilyn]: Ain't nothing multi-classy about a class that can lore-wise do things to you that will make you regret you were born.
22:13:21 [Reigen]: Alright then! That is everyone.
22:13:35 [Reigen]: Could all the staff come up here, GMs/Admins that is.
22:13:45 Xanthe bursts into dance.
22:13:59 [Emilyn]: Can I come too because I'm an oldie and I am secretly jealous?
22:14:00 Gavrill throws Jared in. Yelling a cockney accent.
22:14:03 Jidaeo waves at Xanthe.
22:14:03 [Notarius]: Kretlol. Graklol.
22:14:04 Keirandra whistles at Xanthe.
22:14:07 [Cellenar]: ... Monty Python rabbit...
22:14:13 Jidaeo glares angrily at Keirandra.
22:14:18 [Lendri]: Run awaaaaaaaay
22:14:18 [Xanthe]: Nope, enjoy your comfy seat, Sunday!
22:14:20 [Reigen]: Only current staff!
22:14:20 Notarius pets Jared.
22:14:28 [Linevi]: . . . Do Forum Helpers count as staff?
22:14:31 [Jared]: Lordaeron is eternal. Give me all your carrots.
22:14:33 [Emilyn]: My comfy seat is a -log-
22:14:34 [Reigen]: Not for this.
22:14:35 Linevi hangs her head dejectedly.
22:14:39 Xanthe pets Jared.
22:14:39 [Reigen]: FHs aren't people.
22:14:39 [Keirandra]: I just been glared at.
22:14:49 [Notarius]: Lmao.
22:14:49 Keirandra peers at Jidaeo searchingly.
22:14:51 [Keirandra]: WHY?
22:14:54 [Jonoth]: I am a bunny.
22:15:01 [Emilyn]: Were-rabbit
22:15:03 [Jidaeo]: Whistlin' at meh behbeh.
22:15:08 [Emilyn]: BRING OUT THE HOLY HAND GRENADE OF ANTIOCH!
22:15:10 [Keirandra]: I DO WAHT I WANT!
22:15:12 [Gantrithor]: She's right, FHers arent people.
22:15:21 [Gantrithor]: Mere MEN can't be this rugged.
22:15:22 Gantrithor flexes his muscles. Oooooh so strong!
22:15:39 [Reigen]: Alright, if you have a question for the staff, please stand.
22:15:55 [Notarius]: Haha.
22:15:57 [Versich]: Right then.
22:16:03 Jidaeo looks around.
22:16:04 [Gantrithor]: I haave.... a statement. Less aa question.
22:16:05 [Versich]: Ah, nevermind.
22:16:10 [Reigen]: gO ON cAPPN
22:16:13 Gantrithor points at Kretol.
22:16:15 [Emilyn]: ...
22:16:19 Xanthe peers at Gantrithor searchingly.
22:16:20 [Atius]: Nice.
22:16:28 [Emilyn]: Smooooth one, Rei.
22:16:30 [Gantrithor]: You need to reset the Cata server. I bork'd it the other week talaking to a bad NPC. Sorry!
22:16:31 Gantrithor cries on Kretol's shoulder.
22:16:43 Gantrithor is an honest man.
22:16:44 [Xanthe]: Ya jerk!
22:16:48 [Astia]: Oh, so it isn't just me who can't connect?
22:16:48 [Notarius]: I say we ban him.
22:16:58 Notarius nods.
22:16:58 [Lendri]: I have something for the gms! =)
22:17:05 Xanthe smiles at Lendri.
22:17:09 [Xanthe]: (Stand up, girl)
22:17:13 [Gantrithor]: Yeaaaah, my baad people. Pft
22:17:23 [Lendri]: Wait. It didn't place.
22:17:33 [Notarius]: Lmao.
22:17:34 [Lendri]: Aww. My chocolate cake broke. =( Oh well.
22:17:38 [Xanthe]: :((
22:17:38 [Lendri]: You can have it in spirit.
22:17:43 [Xanthe]: Thanks, Lendri
22:17:48 [Lendri]: Sry.~
22:17:51 [Notarius]: Thanks for nothing, nub. D:
22:17:54 Reigen points at Telah.
22:17:54 [Lendri]: <3
22:18:04 Notarius smacks Lendri upside the head.
22:18:19 [Notarius]: GUys.
22:18:21 [Notarius]: Psst.
22:18:22 Notarius points at Jidaeo.
22:18:32 Linevi waves at Rekka.
22:18:36 Rekka pets Linevi.
22:18:40 Linevi purrs like a kitten.
22:19:01 Jonoth licks Rekka.
22:19:11 [Jidaeo]: In all seriousness I appreciate keeping everything running and putting up with us on your free time. I'm curious about two things however.
22:19:30 [Telah]: I wonder if or how much the GM team will apply new dragon lore into the existing Dragonsworn RP come Cataclysm? (Concernced dragonsworn.)
22:19:42 [Xanthe]: (Pharaoh and then Bovel's Q)
22:19:56 [Jidaeo]: One Can we or will we ever be able to ride drakes since, I thought they were sold by vendors can we apply for them? And also for things that are difficult to acquire, things that require professions, quests and the like can we buy them off Gms if for
22:19:56 [Jidaeo]: role
22:20:05 [Jidaeo]: playing purposes.
22:20:39 [Emilyn]: You just want a filthy dragon.
22:20:43 [Emilyn]: ADMIT IT
22:20:48 [Keirandra]: SO DO I!
22:20:50 [Emilyn]: .. We all do..
22:20:56 Gavrill doesn't.
22:21:03 [Gantrithor]: I say we wrestl the Time lost proto Drake IC, RIGHT NOW. :|
22:22:31 [Jidaeo]: Also when we had Demon Hunters being epic. There were spells given to other classes for RP representation, namely a rouge having metamorphisis. Could we acquire through a varient system abilities of other classes for RP. Nothing that makes us stronger
22:22:31 [Jidaeo]: but
22:22:35 [Jidaeo]: cool visual I'll shut up.
22:22:55 Notarius cheers at Jidaeo!
22:23:04 [Xanthe]: All right, give us a moment, Pharaoh, as you've given us three questions.
22:23:26 [Jidaeo]: Understandable, I apologize. I just wanted to present them without having to come back. Sorry.
22:23:33 [Grakor]: Personally speaking, I've never wanted to see drakes ridden on. Considering that they're not easy to get even in Retail, making them obtainable would be...difficult. IF they were to be made available at all, they'd still need to be extremely rare.
22:24:03 [Grakor]: I don't know if we'd ever make that happen. It's a power scale issue we've not wanted to touch.
22:24:25 [Jared]: That said, I believe they -have- been handed out to dragonsworn under very specific and rare circumstances as reward gestures. Krilari would have to clarify if I'm right or wrong later. I might be talking out my butt. Just what I'd heard.
22:24:49 Linevi brushes up against Jared and farts loudly.
22:24:57 Xanthe smacks Linevi upside the head.
22:25:16 [Jidaeo]: Understandable.
22:25:20 [Jared]: Yes, thank you, Rowgen, that's talking out of your butt. Right. Second question?
22:25:23 [Grakor]: I don't recall that, so I can't say. But it's one of those things where...well, your mount would end up stronger and smarter than your character. How would you justify and work around that? Would we trust players to do that and not abuse it?
22:25:37 Jared nods at Grakor.
22:26:48 [Grakor]: On giving spells out, it's something that seems rather impractical. Only myself and Kretol can grant spells, and there's a lot of profiles that go through.
22:27:24 [Jidaeo]: Oooh. Gotcha. Didn't know that.
22:27:28 [Jared]: As for GMs offering difficult-to-obtain items up for purchase, it depends on the item in question.
22:27:48 [Jared]: We have, for example, sold mechano-hogs to people for the same price as they'd get one from an engineer, if there's no engineers around.
22:28:00 [Jidaeo]: Like enchants, for visual effects, profession items, like magic carpet or the flamethrower thing people have that I want.
22:28:11 [Jidaeo]: Really I didn't know that sol.
22:28:16 [Jidaeo]: Where is that at?
22:28:17 [Xanthe]: You can't use a magic carpet without the skillset -- it's a perk, I believe.
22:28:29 [Grakor]: Most enchants players can get themselves. To be fair, leveling trade skills on the server is much faster here than on retail.
22:28:35 [Teztez]: Proffessions on CotH are way easier to level than on retail. If someone wants it, they could easily devote very little time, and get said items.
22:29:22 [Jared]: But if you have something specific in mind, it may be worth asking us. Carefully consider the item you're after and remember that we can say no, though.
22:29:28 [Jidaeo]: Alright. Thanks for the answers.
22:30:15 [Xanthe]: If no one has anything else to add on that, Telah can repost his Q?
22:30:25 [Telah]: I wonder if or how much the GM team will apply new dragon lore into the existing Dragonsworn RP come Cataclysm? (Concernced dragonsworn.)
22:30:37 [Xanthe]: Do you mean a specific Flight~?
22:31:05 [Telah]: Of course my personal interest is about the Blue Flight but I know there are questions regarding other flights as well.
22:31:21 [Xanthe]: I think there's stuff posted about, say, them Blacksworn.
22:31:50 [Grakor]: Dragonsworn are one of those things that the staff is very opinionated on, in both directions. So, right now, their future is kind of up in the air.
22:32:04 [Jared]: Yeah. As I understand it, we've yet to finalise a decision on how we're approaching dragonsworn in Cataclysm.
22:32:31 [Telah]: Is one possibility cancelling them again?
22:32:32 [Jared]: There are a few radically different approaches that we're debating the pros and cons of intermittently. Rest assured that by the time Cata's nearer, we'll have something solid to relay to y'all.
22:33:07 [Jared]: I believe that what Cara mentioned earlier was the likely cancellation of Black Dragonsworn, considering the entire flight becomes apocalyptically hostile after the Shattering.
22:33:15 [Grakor]: A possibility? Yes, though we'll have to see and weigh our options against the desires of the playerbase. Right now the concern is that not enough is being done with them as-is.
22:33:35 [Grakor]: And yes, the Black D-sworn have a very...problematic situation.
22:34:18 [Telah]: Then I would just like to throw in the suggestion of players profiling their own dragons have their actions pre-approved in private discussions. This was an idea crystallized after I've struggled to get -any- RP with Bala, crossing path's with several
22:34:18 [Telah]: GMs
22:34:42 Xanthe nods at Telah.
22:34:51 [Telah]: (And there's Wrathion, his saviour in Ravenholdt and Sablemane.)
22:34:53 [Jared]: With dragonsworn, we kind of expected players to take the initiative to generate their own RP that doesn't hinge on interacting with NPC dragons. It's been hit or miss so far.
22:35:54 [Telah]: There's little point of being a dragonsworn if there's no chance to gain missions, punishment suggestions and so on from the master, imo.
22:36:11 [Telah]: They don't have to be active, but at least seemingly present in their life somehow.
22:36:27 [Xanthe]: A lot of it, from my understanding as I came into the team well after the system was established, is working with Gms to build events/such for the dragonsworn.
22:36:40 [Xanthe]: Collaboration?
22:36:53 [Jared]: I believe we outlined each sworn-handler dragon's priorities and agendas in their profiles to give people ideas of what to do with them. I agree with you that there should be some degree of interaction, though.
22:37:01 [Grakor]: Which creates the dilemma we're struggling with. Not many of the GMs want to spend a lot of time RPing dragons, and then the question on if we want to give players the ability to dictate what their dragon sends them off to do, etc. etc.
22:37:21 [Grakor]: And to what extent, and so on. As I said, it's one of those things where the GMs are very opinionated, on both sides.
22:37:50 [Grakor]: Unfortunately, we don't have much that we can concretely offer, but perhaps a forum thread could be made on the subject and we can talk about it.
22:38:00 Telah nods at Grakor.
22:38:14 [Xanthe]: Feed me more PDs!
22:38:15 [Jared]: All options are on the table at present, either way. Whatever the case may be, we'll let you know when we come to a decision about Dsworn, rest assured.
22:38:32 [Telah]: Await a PD with an example of a dragon application and such + an open thread about it.
22:38:40 [Xanthe]: I am very excited about it.
22:38:43 Xanthe loves PD threads.
22:38:53 Telah poofs, got some DMing to do.
22:39:01 Notarius waves goodbye to Telah. Farewell!
22:39:02 [Xanthe]: Troovo?
22:39:05 [Troovo]: Lately I've been seeing a gradual decline in the amount of active RPers here on CotH. I've been wondering if there is any way that CotH can be advertized in places where the target audience for the server (RPers, WoW lovers, etc.)? What is the team's
22:39:12 [Troovo]: thoughts on advertizing?
22:39:31 [Xanthe]: Oh! Nice question!
22:40:50 [Grakor]: I think the population will come back to at least some extent once we make the move to Cataclysm. As for right now, I'm not sure to what extend of advertising we could do. This is more of a Kretol-question!
22:40:59 [Reigen]: I beleive advertising has been something we've avoiding. I recall this coming up once before and Kretol saying he'd rather not or some such.
22:40:59 [Teztez]: Well.. There's something, oddly annoying at times when you browse a WoW-related sight, and then BAM there's ten banners for free servers.
22:41:00 [Grakor]: extent*
22:41:08 [Xanthe]: We do tend to get a lot of introductions and such that come in, though, it's just up to them to stick around once they're admitted :)
22:41:23 [Kretol]: I've never been too fond of advertising. Generally, influxes of players have been pretty organic, resulting from folks searching on Google and other search engines.
22:41:42 [Teztez]: Aye. If people want a free RP server, they'll search for it.
22:41:50 [Kretol]: But yes, I think the general lack of activity is people focused on Cata getting around and losing interest in current events.
22:41:58 [Jonoth]: Things pick up as people get out of school as well.
22:42:03 Xanthe nods.
22:42:11 [Jared]: You can always do your part by trying to recruit your buddies, as well.
22:42:19 Jared stands at attention and salutes.
22:42:22 [Troovo]: That's what I figured, Kret. I was just wondering if there was a way to get more introductions here and there.
22:42:30 [Troovo]: Since that never hurts.
22:43:09 [Grakor]: Word-of-mouth advertising is always welcome. Tell your RP buddies.
22:43:34 [Kretol]: Well, I think folks holding out until Cata is also causing somewhat of a snowball effect as well.
22:44:09 [Troovo]: I suppose it's a good question to ask again once Cata has been up and running for a while.
22:44:17 [Jared]: Yeah. At the moment we need a Cata. We need a Cata in the dead of the night. It's gotta be strong and it's gotta be fast and it's gotta be larger than life.
22:44:24 [Kretol]: Less population means some other folks will also stop playing as a result of lower pop (or move to another server, whether temporarily or permanently). New folks also see the smaller population, causing them to potentially look elsewhere...
22:44:25 [Xanthe]: I love you for that.
22:44:30 Xanthe gently pats Jared.
22:44:31 Kretol snickers at Jared.
22:45:19 [Troovo]: Alright, thanks for the answer. I have to log off now because I need to be headed to the lab.
22:45:24 [Xanthe]: Thank you for the Q!
22:45:27 Xanthe waves at Lendri.
22:45:30 [Reigen]: Thanks for coming!
22:45:35 [Jared]: Go! Hunt! Do science!
22:45:36 Troovo waves goodbye.
22:45:37 Jared salutes Troovo with respect.
22:45:45 Lendri waves.
22:46:23 [Lendri]: Ah.. I've always been curious about a certain something and talking to the GMs with. It's a race that would require a special profile in particular.
22:46:32 [Xanthe]: Whatchu mean?
22:47:25 [Lendri]: Well. During the third war, many elves fought in the battle against the scourge, and I don't doubt that some of them even got raised to serve for them, until Sylvanas set the newly risen race free. She herself, along with her Dark Rangers, are elves.
22:47:39 [Lendri]: It's entirely possible for blood elf undead characters to be a thing. But will it ever be?
22:48:01 Notarius loves Lendri.
22:48:21 [Grakor]: We're somewhat limited by a few factors there. For one, the forsaken models are clearly ex-human. For two, most of the confirmed elves-turned-undead are either DKs, Dark Rangers, or banshees.
22:48:30 [Reigen]: It was once upon a time, but it changed a while ago, shortly around when I became a FH. An-yeah
22:48:51 [Notarius]: Uhm.
22:48:58 Notarius raises a hand.
22:49:14 [Xanthe]: One moment, Not
22:49:17 Notarius nods.
22:49:18 [Grakor]: The way that undead seem to work in Warcraft is that specific races turn into specific types of undead. Just as a general rule. You see a lot of elves turning into ethereal undead and all.
22:49:35 [Grakor]: Not always, of course, that's just what we see. Likely to save on models and such.
22:49:54 [Versich]: Mind if I interject?
22:49:59 [Lendri]: It's unfortunate that blizzard did not make a model for forsaken bloodelves, but I highly doubt because of that small mechanic they are entiely extinct.
22:50:10 [Lendri]: Entirely*
22:50:42 Lendri thinks, cogs turning. "I would think so, anyway."
22:50:45 [Jared]: If I can interject -- semantics. I don't think there are any blood elf Forsaken unless they're DKs who allied with them, like Koltira. We're talking about High Elves who died in the fall of Silvermoon, right?
22:51:05 [Versich]: From my perspective, the elven women were given special treatment largely out of Arthas' spite for Sylvannas. Do note that only elven women are made into banshees, never men, as their souls are ripped from their bodies.
22:51:09 [Grakor]: They exist, it's just likely they exist as banshees. Cataclysm gets kind of weird concerning Forsaken, because it implies in a quest that elves can't be Forsaken'd in the same way humans can.
22:51:13 [Gantrithor]: To be faaaaair, the PC forsaken models alawayas looked less "clearly human" to me and were moreso some sort of generic humanoid semi-ghoul looking thing but eh
22:52:07 [Gantrithor]: could always say their eaars rotted off :P
22:52:53 [Lendri]: .. nh. But for the male elves?
22:52:53 [Grakor]: Could, but the model is only one part of this issue. See above about the lore being wonky.
22:53:23 [Gantrithor]: I aalways thought that was the limitation of the Valkyr?
22:53:36 [Gantrithor]: given the LK can raise anything into undeath all nilly willy
22:54:05 [Grakor]: It's unclear either way, but why would the Valkyr have that particular limitation unless it was because of the specific kind of undead they know how to create?
22:54:17 [Grakor]: So, the implication is that elven undead are not the same as human undead.
22:54:39 [Xanthe]: ...So I'm not sure if we've moved this conversation to /raid or not.
22:54:57 [Lendri]: Blizzard's lore is all messed up, in various instances.
22:54:57 [Grakor]: Apologies, I was responding to someone in raid because he spoke in raid.
22:55:11 [Lendri]: They contradict themselves frequently.
22:55:12 [Xanthe]: That's all right! Was in whispers, so was trying to get my barings.
22:55:33 [Jared]: Can't argue with you there Lendri. We just have to try and make do with it.
22:55:57 [Grakor]: But yeah, it's a very murky subject. As it is now, I don't think we'll be allowing high elven undead. That may change in the future, but for right now I haven't seen much of a call or necessity for it. Unless someone wants to CMC a banshee or dark
22:55:57 [Grakor]: ranger.
22:56:10 [Lendri]: Mhm.. and forsaken bloodelves wouldn't be such a -bad- thing, it's just we don't have models to depict it accurately.
22:56:33 [Lendri]: Besides for the DK model.
22:56:38 [Lendri]: And just saying they're forsaken.
22:56:55 [Reigen]: See, but if they used the Dk models, they'd have to nly be DKs.
22:57:21 [Jared]: Unless they were a permanent morph for another class, which'd be a CMC matter.
22:57:23 [Lendri]: It's unfortunately the only closest thing to represent them at the time being.
22:57:25 [Reigen]: We don't allow OOC classes, If I recall correctly. So one couldn't use a DK elf and claim they were a priest or some such.
22:57:48 [Lendri]: Mm.. Maybe, using an ID model for a DK?
22:58:02 [Versich]: It's not that simple.
22:58:15 [Versich]: Right, imagine all the 'base' races have faces numbers 1-13.
22:58:25 [Versich]: DKs use the same model and ID. It's just their numbers are like, 14-26.
22:59:02 [Lendri]: I meant using the display ID of a NPC from, say, Archerus.
22:59:13 [Lendri]: But your character would be a warrior.
22:59:35 [Lendri]: Or Rogue. Or whatever and such.
22:59:39 [Reigen]: That would likely have to be something Kret needs to address, as it would be like a CMC in that case.
23:00:16 [Lendri]: Right. The human model for forsaken bloodelves would, in some people's eyes, depict them wrongly. Thus needing an ID that represents them accurately. Which the closest thing we have to that now would be the DK elven models.
23:00:30 [Lendri]: So along with a special profile, they need a CMC.
23:00:42 [Rigley]: Well, a CMC in and of itself would likely suffice.
23:00:57 [Jared]: Hypothetically, yes. Nobody has attempted to roll a male high elf Forsaken, though, although I imagine they'd be welcome to try.
23:00:57 [Lendri]: Unless it's possible to have a human undead model and dress them normally, but say that they are a bloodelf. Though that can become confusing.
23:01:06 [Jared]: I certainly wouldn't mind it.
23:01:37 [Xanthe]: Lendri~! If you will do me a favor, for interest of time, we're moving on to Gremak's Q. I am going to be sending you a whisper in just a moment!
23:01:46 [Lendri]: I would certaintly try, me being fully supportive of the idea and lore behind it. But thank you. =)
23:01:47 [Xanthe]: (We're not dropping your topic!)
23:02:21 [Gremak]: This is more of a lore kind request if anything. With Blizzard kind of turning Garrosh into an old Orcish stereotype I hope it would be possible on our server lore to reflect a bit more on his positive traits like why Thrall selected him to be the new --
23:03:21 [Gremak]: Wachief. All in all I think Blizzard handled him really, really wrong. I'd just love to see you guy's portrayl of him in our server lore done your way.
23:03:28 [Reigen]: Keep in mind, we do follow blizzard lore. So if Blizzard is taking him down the path of a villian, thats where we have to take him as well.
23:03:38 [Jared]: Well I think in the moments where he was puppetted in pre-Cata events, he was made out to be a completely awesome badass.
23:03:48 [Jared]: Which by all accounts is what he appeared to be at the end of WotLK/the beginning of Cataclysm.
23:03:54 [Jared]: It's only in MoP where he -really- went off the rails.
23:03:59 [Reigen]: Yeah.
23:04:00 [Jared]: (And where Blizzard's writing became profoundly awful.)
23:04:18 [Teztez]: Currently, and way up the line, Garrosh is a war hero.
23:05:23 [Gremak]: Yeah I'd agree that I love his badass-ness but some times they just go over board with the stereotype. If they do turn him into a villain though I will destroy Blizzard.
23:05:37 [Teztez]: He's already set as the last boss of MoP.
23:05:46 [Gantrithor]: to be fair, he does have Old God Sha thingies living in his head in MoP.
23:05:48 [Gremak]: Ohh, damn.
23:06:09 [Xanthe]: Who doesn't?
23:06:32 [Gantrithor]: Me :||||
23:06:40 [Gantrithor]: MY HEAD IS AS CLEAR A THE WATER'S SURFACE
23:06:54 [Cellenar]: ... so you have microbes floating around...
23:06:55 [Cellenar]: ... got'cha.
23:07:00 [Jared]: That's what they want you to thiiiinnnk
23:07:04 [Grakor]: Garrosh was turned into a villain with MoP, full-stop. He might as well be twirling a mustache and all.
23:07:22 [Jared]: Yeah. It bites.
23:07:27 [Gantrithor]: He just wants to crush the Alliance like all good orcs should :||||
23:07:30 [Gantrithor]: :|||||||
23:08:32 [Gremak]: I wasn't currently up to date on him in MoP. But thanks anyway!
23:08:33 [Grakor]: This is unfortunately a lemon that the Blizzard writers handed us. I would like to still make it clear that the Horde as a whole hasn't turned evil, it's only under evil leadership, but we'll have to work with the events that are given to us.
23:08:57 [Gantrithor]: We allies sympathize with you Grak.
23:09:00 [Gantrithor]: We haave Varian
23:09:01 [Gantrithor]: :|
23:09:08 [Jared]: Would like to express something similar about the Forsaken, personally, when the time comes.
23:09:11 [Gantrithor]: WOLFHEART IS SUCH A BAD BOOK.
23:09:20 [Rigley]: Heeey, watch out Gant. Varian becomes the sane man in MoP, somehow.
23:09:29 [Gantrithor]: I know and iots duuuumb
23:09:32 [Xanthe]: We good, Gremak?
23:09:32 [Jared]: A SMALL ELITE FORCE
23:09:37 [Jared]: TO EXPLORE THIS NEW LAND
23:09:39 [Jared]: AND FIND MY SON.
23:09:40 [Rekka]: Next question?
23:09:41 [Gremak]: All good, sarge.
23:09:52 [Gantrithor]: SUDDENLY I AM A SYMPATHETIC AND MY SON IS LOST LOVE ME
23:10:00 [Versich]: Wait, shight, I'm standing. That was an accident. Ah... right...
23:10:05 [Xanthe]: :) go on
23:10:11 [Versich]: When's Cata coming out?
23:10:15 [Gantrithor]: Pfffffffffft
23:10:18 [Teztez]: Ban him.
23:10:23 [Grakor]: Silly Xigo, sit back down.
23:10:28 Xanthe shrugs. Who knows?
23:10:33 [Reigen]: Kretol has been busy with school and work, so its a bit of a slower process that first thought.
23:10:33 [Jared]: GETCHOASSONDATCHAIR
23:10:41 [Reigen]: We'll let you know once progress is made.
23:10:51 Notarius points at you.
23:10:56 Xanthe waves at you.
23:10:57 [Jared]: And rest assured that when progress it made, IT WILL BE SWIFT. IT WILL BE WITHOUT MERCY.
23:11:02 Reigen waves at you.
23:11:10 You nod.
23:11:11 [Reigen]: Swift like taylor?
23:11:12 [Angus]: This is a simple one. Do you guys have any plans for a 'Stormrage'-based Cata lead-in event line?
23:11:26 [Reigen]: I don't think we have anything for that currently.
23:11:27 [Xanthe]: At present? Not that I know of.
23:11:33 You nod.
23:11:38 [Reigen]: We could very well do one if asked.
23:11:40 [Gantrithor]: That would be aawesome!
23:11:47 [Grakor]: I don't even know what happened in that one.
23:11:53 [Gantrithor]: Stormrage was
23:11:57 [Angus]: The War against the Nightmare.
23:11:59 [Jared]: I thought it was a terrible book, so I don't have plans myself. However, I think Delta was touching on the question of the Nightmare in her Emerald Dream events some months back, when she was a GM.
23:12:01 [Gantrithor]: MALFURION KICKS THE NIGHTMARE IN THE DADDYBAGS
23:12:03 [Rigley]: Nelfy things.
23:12:04 Grakor doesn't keep up with elf lore, meh.
23:12:10 [Krilari]: I could look to managing that, if there was a general interest in it.
23:12:20 [Gantrithor]: also Goldshire gets absorbed by the nightmare.
23:12:22 [Teztez]: Yes, Malfurion went in alone.
23:12:36 [Gantrithor]: There's the Goldshire thing. That'd be cool.
23:12:37 [Reigen]: Any more questions for us?
23:12:43 [Xanthe]: If you have any ideas for it, Angus, you are more than welcome to share them with us. Please bring 'em in a thread in PD!
23:12:56 [Angus]: I might! :3
23:12:57 [Xanthe]: (That goes for anyone who has a Cata lead-in event :) )
23:13:04 [Gantrithor]: Well, this is more of an addenum, but i feel using all the pre-cata lore form books and stuff would make for some great RP
23:13:04 [Xanthe]: (or any event)
23:13:07 [Xanthe]: (please, come to PD)
23:13:17 [Reigen]: No more then?
23:13:57 [Reigen]: Well then...thank you all for coming to todays MnG and AMA!
23:14:01 Xanthe waves goodbye to everyone. Farewell!

I couldn't make it, but here's my responses if interested.

1. What is your Forum Name?

Rensin the Impregnable.

2. What race do you want RP more and why?

Tauren. I love their looks, their backstories, and everything else about them above all else. It's hard to play a Tauren here, and always has, because people either don't take you seriously or stay in their own groups, generally not being open to the walking mansteaks.

3. What race/class are you hesitant to try and why?

Gnomes. I can't take Gnomes seriously when I play them. You could give me a billion examples of "well played" Gnomes, but I could give you a bazillion examples of characters and archtypes I don't like to play. I have tried Gnomes, and every time I have done so, I just get sorta frustrated that I make it into a joke character every time because of my inability to take them serious.

As for classes? Paladin. It's super hard for me to play the righteous fellow.

4. If you had the ability to multi-class the character you came on, what class combo would you do?

Warrior rogue. Basically, a guy that wore heavy leathers, was good with stealth, but when up close and personal he'd bring out his two handed weapon or sword and shield. It'd also be fun to play a warrior/mage combo, a character that would be able to swing a sword and wield armor, but effectively spellcast as well.

Well, to follow suit the, and for being unable to go. Here's mine.

1. What is your Forum Name?

KageAcuma

2. What race do you want RP more and why?

Derp, I mean.. Orc. I gotta get back to my orc rp, cause y'know. Orcs never die.

3. What race/class are you hesitant to try and why?

Well. Priests. On a gnome. Preists themselves are hard for me to play. I tend to be 'rawrbashbashbash' or 'magic burn you!'
Gnomes? I.. Just have a hard time with them. Their shortness seems.. Too much. And with a combat kind of person like me, can't figure out how to fight as one.

4. If you had the ability to multi-class the character you came on, what class combo would you do?

Heh, now multi classing. Warrior Mage. Gotta say I love Warmages, and seeing as though Krest is already kinda one (Warrior with enchanted weapons) it would be neet to have him using spells on his blades instead of enchantments. That, and armored mages are awesome.

I shall do the same then!

1. What is your Forum Name?
I am Alpharius.

2. What race do you want RP more and why?
Orcs. I've had three elves, a tauren, a troll, and an orc, but I never played the orc. I got a new orc lined up thats more orky than orcy, but it should still be fun! I hope.

3. What race/class are you hesitant to try and why?
race: Night Elves and gnomes. I don't like elves. Nothing about elves is appealing to me. And I certainly don't like gnomes, but that is for a COMPLETELY and unrelated reason. More of a... it's a thing, okay?

4. If you had the ability to multi-class the character you came on, what class combo would you do?
Battle mage. I've already got one so why not make it official? Nuff said.

There will be another Meet and Greet sometime next week unless something gets in the way. The date, time and location are yet to be announced until I know when Kretol is free that week. The questions, however, are already up so that you can think of your answers ahead of time! Be on the lookout for another update once I figure out when and where this will happen.

I'll try. Honest!
Perhaps it is your imperfection that which grants you free will, that allows you to persevere against cosmically calculated odds. You prevailed where the Titans' own perfect creations have failed.
