Will this be the new Belf mount? If so... dammit, I'll have to roll a Belf! Idon'twanna roll a Belf! Why can't they make the Draenei mounts that cool?? *cries*

I actually had a dream last night that I signed onto one of the test servers, just so I could play a Draenei while Thorium Brotherhood is down. Can you tell I'm looking forward to the expansion?

So, what will you be doing for the next 12 hours? Playing on another server? Playing that dreaded "Real Life" MMNORPG? Sleeping? Working on your novel?

I'll check my LJ and email, maybe play Neopets for a while, then I might... level my "Real Life" cooking skill. Or read.

... sorry, apparantly that should be "the next 36 hours". Bleah.

Draft Bio:
I'm still rather new to the world but I learn more every day. I'm not new to MMO's, I started playing Ultima Online back in 2000, played for 4 years off and on. Played Final Fantasy XI, great game but too time intensive and no real way to solo makes it hard to do much when you don't have tons of time to play. I tried WoW out during the beta but didn't like it all that much.. now I'm giving it another try and so far I like it alot more.

I'm currently in the US Army, deployed to Iraq. I work in Military Intelligence (don't ask, or I'll have to kill ya :P). I've only got a few more months til I get back home to Hawaii. I am able to play from here although my connection is horrible, pretty much means I can't do any grouping. *sigh* Oh well, I can focus on leveling and working my professions. I recently joined a great guild, The Gleaming Light. They have been very helpful and accepting of my noobieness. I hope to become a great druid that is known across all of Thorium Brotherhood! ;)

Hullo all... I saw this comm mentioned somewhere in the wow_ladies one and figured I might's well drop by and say hullo. My main is on a regular server, but a while ago I made a couple of characters on Thorium and, from time to time, I like to flop on by and see what's up. If you happen to see Anatheme (human warrior, 17ish) or Nickolas (human priest, 12) around feel free to introduce yourself either IC or out... I'm rather shy about starting RP but I'm usually up for it, hehe.
I was wondering if anyone had any guild recommendations? I have a heck of a hard time finding arpee just running around, and guess a guild might help.. but it'd have to be one with pretty lenient rules about activity, since these are just-for-fun alts. I'm not looking for item handouts or quest help or anything- just a place to chat in-character, medium to heavy RP, that won't gkick me for not being on constantly... In any case, feel free to give a /wave if ya see me... happy hunting all :D

Lately I've been seeing a lot of arguments on the Thorium Brotherhood General Chat channels about Roleplaying. The gist of it is, there is a small corps of highly vocal players who don't seem to realize what playing on an RP server means.

Now, I'm not a GM, obviously. I'm also obviously not a Blizzard representative. What this means is that I'm just like you, a paying customer who is trying to make his server better. It also probably means I'm going to be roundly ignored or even told to shut up by people who don't seem to think it's necessary to listen to anyone not wearing a Blizzard badge. Regardless, I think what I'm about to say needs to be said, so here goes:

The Blizzard Roleplaying Policy Guidelines say the following things in clear, unambiguous language:
Creating an immersive world that holds true to the "Base Storyline" of the World of Warcraft is the driving motivation behind our Role-Play Servers. While other servers allow you to play World of Warcraft, these servers are intended to let you live World of Warcraft. Within this environment you will embark on long-lasting adventures, foster enduring comradeships, and wage epic wars. Cultivating an environment that allows this level of immersion rests largely upon the shoulders of you, the player.

To assist you in this endeavor, we have laid out rules of conduct more stringent than those of other servers.

Do you see that last sentence? They are making it very, very clear that the rules of an RP server are more restrictive than rules on other servers. They are also making it clear, in the paragraph above, that the purpose of an RP server is to Role-play your character.

The RP servers do NOT exist so you can load your character "Ieattaurens" and play in a server with less population/queue times. They exist so those of us who like to play characters as opposed to just running around killing mobs can do so.

As to those of you who have been harassing RPers, let me remind you of this rule:
Players that specifically target role-players for verbal/physical abuse (not limited to offensive language)... May be temporarily suspended from the game.

Also banned from the game on RP servers:

  • Any Non-Medieval or Non-Fantasy names (i.e. Slipnslide, Robotman, Technotron).

    A lot of you non-roleplayers have been complaining about people roleplaying. When anyone asks you to stop your behavior, a lot of you start bitching about how you're paying for the game, and we should just leave you alone since we're not GMs.

    Well, get this into your heads: Not only are YOU violating the rules of the RP server, WE are, BY THE RULES, asked to inform you of this and ask you to cease before doing anything official about it. So when we say "Hey, this is an RP server, we're RPing, please stop complaining about it," we're not being whiny players -- we're following the rules of the server.

    If you don't want to RP, you frankly should have created a character on a non-RP server. There are, as of this moment, 152 servers. Seventy-seven of those are PvP servers. Sixty-five are Normal servers. That leaves only 10 RP servers, which means you could have found a server more to your liking.

    That said, by all means stay -- but stop giving us crap because we're actually having conversations in-character. Stop whining on the General Chat about how we're all nazis because we want you to follow the rules of the server. You don't want to RP? Fine. I don't know why you'd bother to create a character on an RP server, but ok -- just do your thing, and we'll do ours.
