Lecture Series Index

LadyAce says, 'Does anyone have a topic they'd like to bring up? trouble they've run into, suggestion they've come up with ...?'

Lia says, 'I'm a little curious how people come up with their RP's... do you pick a name and go from there, do you choose a type of char and go from there or?'

Drakkon says, 'You come up with your rp by being creative :P does your personality correspond with your name irl?'

LadyAce says, 'I usually start with an idea, then a name -- but the name itself can inspire more ideas.'

Drakkon nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Spite says, red-faced with anger, to Lia ni Connor, 'I have one rper at the moment, and her rp just sorta fell together from random ideas and thoughts on strings.'

Gad says, 'My name does in RL.'

A huge Norseman winks uncompromisingly.

LadyAce says, 'Such as, you'd be a very different German woodcutter if your name was Helmut versus if your name was Rassmussen-Berthold the III.'

Lia says, 'I've had ideas from books, I've taken names quite close to my own name, and I've taken names that just sounded cool and tried to work out what kind of char and rp that name should have really.'

Lia ni Connor nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Trinity says, 'If I may, the idea usually comes to me last. After the name and the stat rolling. Waaaay after, actually. Sort of out of the blue. And generally I usually end up goint to great lengths to make the name/char/rp work.'

Spite says, 'Heheheh my name and rp was my state of mind at the time of creation.'

LadyAce says, 'Sometimes a name suggests things that you didn't intend at the start, and it's fun to see where one small choice might lead down other webs of thought.'

Trinity nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Lia ni Connor nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Gad says, 'I start with what type of char and try to base a name from there to fit...'

Lia ni Connor nods her agreement with Gad.

Mordor says, 'I found this thing, but if i did rp, it'd be with exuberance and gusto, i'm sure, but these are really hard to find.'

Mordor waves an aura of malice full of energy and enthusiasm.

Lia says, 'When you RP, do you like to go for a chartype you know or dont' you care or is it random?'

Trinity says, 'I generally try and go for what isn't already out there'

Trinity says, 'For instance'

Lia nods her agreement with Trinity.

Lia says, 'it's boring to be the same as everyone else isn't it..'

Trinity says, 'I try not to play evil characters, because they seem to abound and rather trite as of late, no offense'

Spite nods his agreement with Trinity.

Gad nods his agreement with Trinity.

Gad says, 'I agree with that... and I just cant be mean'

An aura of heavenly light appears above Gad's head.

Gad winks suggestively.

Trinity chuckles politely.

Lia nods her agreement with Gad.

Finlay says, 'ahh.. but mean can be fun too if done right'

Trinity says, 'Well, going back to where the rp comes from'

Trinity says, 'I'll let you all in on a little secret'

Spite says, 'I cant rp good, cos Im totally not, and I dont have any clue how good people react :P'

Lia says to Gad, 'You know I can't either.. I tried to be a stand-offish char once but it fell arpart on me.. '

LadyAce says, 'having to kill people for xp can discourage a lot of sweetness at heart...only so many times you can "Go hunting in the forest, tra la" etc. :)'

Trinity nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Trinity says, 'well'

LadyAce says, 'working with the Legend system and "staying good" -- how else have you done it?'

LadyAce says, 'killing infidels, thieves, I spose?'

Gad chuckles politely.

Trinity says to LadyAce, 'to be honest with you, I look at xp killing as 90 percent ooc'

LadyAce says, 'depending on what sort of good you are.'

Spite nods his agreement with Trinity.

Lia says, 'whenever my align drops to low I go visit Bengal for extended periods.. nobody else is ever there though'

Trinity says, 'I mean, why would I be killing Higbald?'

Trinity chuckles politely.

Spite says, 'I generally only rp once I'm comfortable with where my char is at'

Trinity nods her agreement with Lia.

LadyAce prefers to RP her kills, it makes for better groups.

Lia looks up into the sky and ponders.

Trinity says, 'Well, in groups, I do RP my kills'

Lia nods her agreement with LadyAce.

LadyAce doesn't like to kill alone :)

Gad says, 'My 'goodie-goods' go for the 'evil' type mobs... theives and such, but he also kills in the crusades and says that too many were signing up ofr the qwrong reasons'

Lia says, 'How do you work that though?'

An aura of heavenly light appears above Gad's head.

Mordor says, 'if you rp and want it to be as much a part of the game as quests and xping, there's got to be rewards, right ?'

Spite says, 'retrib rp's a lot, hes quite good friends with his demons and doppels, they have long chats while hes sitting regenning'

Trinity nods solemnly.

Finlay chuckles politely.

Trinity does that with her angels, now.

Gad says, 'he is fun to watch, SS PD was fun'

Gad chuckles politely.

LadyAce says, 'my top favorites are "going on safari" and "freeing the townspeople from tyranny/leading a rebellion" :)'

Gad says, 'I used an angel to convince a guy to join a clan once'

Lia nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Trinity says, 'Oh, I'm forever on a quest to rid Klein of its corrupt government'

LadyAce says, 'there's a level where it's not 100% deep RP, but I like to have at least something to say about it as I go, it makes for better conversations'

Lorenzo says to Trinity, 'I hate to tell you, but it'll never succeed'

Lia nods solemnly.

LadyAce giggles at Lorenzo.

Trinity chuckles politely.

Gad says, 'And the crusaders who are only in it for the looting and raping'

Gad nods to himself.

Trinity says to LadyAce, 'God I hope not'

Lorenzo says to Trinity, 'not that there's no value in the struggle!'

Trinity nods her agreement with Lorenzo.

Trinity says, 'I actually have quite the bone to pick with a certain imm who made the place most reasonable for me to xp a good mob rich area'

Trinity ignores everything, lost in her own little world.

LadyAce says, 'giving RP reasons for mobkill -- what sorts of changes might help with that? Maybe if mobs were more interested in 'picking a fight'? Or...?'

Gad says, 'Would help'

Lia nods solemnly.

Gad chuckles politely.

Trinity says, 'If the alignment of the Saracen heathens was eeevul!'

LadyAce says, '(for example, insulting your ancestors in the taverns)'

LadyAce chuckles politely at Trinity's feeble witticism.

Lia says, 'something like sneering at an evi lchar of the goody-goodies'

Lia says, 'and jeering of the goodie chars by the evil mobs'

Gad nods his agreement with Lia.

LadyAce nods solemnly.

Trinity says, 'I actually think alot more can be done with that sort of thing. More mobs should act as Thomas/Richard'

Lia says, 'and all around ridicule for the undecideds by all'

Lorenzo says, 'if mobs aggressed toward taunting, you could make mobs react to you in the way that suits your xp needs :)'

Finlay says, 'I want to level so I can kill that outfitter guy who's always laughing at my clothes, whatever they are'

Finlay grumbles.

Gad says, 'pushing and shoving... stealing... all works for good reason'

An aura of heavenly light appears above Gad's head.

LadyAce says, 'I think a campaign to increase bar fights, the insulting of ladies, and the tromping on feelings and toes by the nobility!'

Gad says, 'I love inciting the brawl in San Fran'

Lia says, 'yes..'

Trinity cheers for LadyAce - huzzah!

Gad says, 'My favorite thing in indus'

Lia says, 'if no pushing and shoving then walking to the other side of the street to get away..'

Gad chuckles politely.

Gad says, 'Then they get taunted by Gaddie'

Gad nods to himself.

Lia nods solemnly.

Spite says, 'Its quite strange, ive only recently begun looking at my alts from an rp perspective'

Lia says, 'that sort of thing would be great fun!'

Finlay says, 'so does it work for the guy in the stag? I always see him being rude to evil people.'

Finlay says, 'he likes me though'

Spite says, 'rude?'

Finlay nods his agreement with Spite.

Spite says, 'hes a little more than rude'

Finlay chuckles politely.

Lia says to Finlay, 'well, works.. yes.. he plain ignores your business if he doesn't like you'

Spite says, 'outright refusal of service is just bad business sense'

Finlay says, 'does it provoke reactions like you're saying you'd give if those taunting things were there'

Lorenzo says to Spite, 'he can afford it, he has an effective monopoly'

Lia says, 'well, he's an innkeeper so not as much, but yes..'

Finlay is just trying to understand what you mean so he can come up with ideas too.

Finlay hangs his head.

Spite says to Finlay, 'try abusing him'

Finlay says, 'I don't want to abuse him... I LIKE renting there.'

Finlay says, 'ok so Idon't.. but...'

Lia giggles at Finlay.

Spite says, 'eh should remember those who abuse him and beat the hell out of them if they come back'

Lia says, 'I think that would just get really annoying'

Mordor *poke classified adds section* mage in need of grendal head

Finlay nods his agreement with Lia.

Spite says, 'I would if I were him'

Trinity nods her agreement with Lia.

Lia says, 'since the Stag is the central meeting point in med'

Mordor says, 'oops'

Spite says, 'thats my point'

Finlay might like to go slumming and play darts with some friends, and that'd be bad

Lia goes EEK! at LadyAce in distress - isn't LadyAce an awful person for teasing?

Spite says, 'it shouldnt need to be'

Mordor pokes LadyAce in the ribs.

Trinity never goes there anymore. Quickley is far less discriminating.

Mordor says, 'she's dead'

You do a slow fade as Trinity whines at LadyAce, hoping she won't get to you too.

Lia says, 'I don't like Quickley'

Lorenzo begings searching for LadyAce's link.

Trinity raises her eyebrow at Lia.

Lia says, 'she's such a rude woman if anyone'

Gad chortles with amusement.

Finlay nods his agreement with Lia.

Trinity chuckles politely.

Finlay says, 'jose's kinda rude too. but mostly to other people who go there to complain'

Finlay shrugs philosophically.

Lia says to Trinity, 'pointedly asking if you're taking up space or going to be buying anything..'

Finlay hasn't had a problem with him.

Spite says, 'med is a big place, there is a lot more to it than sherwood, and if richard was more agro towards people, they might explore other options more'

Finlay gasps at Spite.

Trinity says to Lia, 'Perhaps, but her yard is a nice place to sit. You don't have to listen to her there. And you can run up her water bill.'

Lia says to Spite, 'We could hope, but I seriously doubt it'

Lorenzo giggles at Trinity.

Lia nods her agreement with Trinity.

Finlay says to Spite, 'you're joking right? Next you'll be telling me there's more to anc besides ireland'

Lia says to Trinity, 'thats' true'

Trinity laughs.

LadyAce giggles at Finlay.

Spite says to Finlay, 'yeah theres roman britian'

Trinity says to Finlay, 'I remember when I first started playing'

Lorenzo says to Finlay, 'gee, you think there might be?'

Finlay faints.

Trinity says to Finlay, 'and I found out there was more to the mud than Agrabah'

Trinity chuckles politely.

Finlay says, 'Oh I've been all over the place.. but I know most don't bother'

Lia says to Spite, 'I was helping an old player, who said he'd been here for years, to get from London indus to Tara... I told him to pay attention and learn the way for next time.. he was _not_ interested'

LadyAce giggles.

Trinity chuckles politely.

Lia says to Spite, 'the people who want to explore will do it anyway.. the Stag-Monsters won't..'

LadyAce would vote for not helping him next time :P

Finlay smiles at Trinity.

Lia nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Gad says, 'level 50 newbies'

Lorenzo says, 'when I take people places, unless I'm short on time, I always do it slowly and with full travelogue mode on'

Spite says, 'I know a few people that are 50th and dont know their way from tara to agrabah'

Lia says to LadyAce, 'I try, but then they ask and ask and ... I just can't say no'

Finlay says, 'yeah. they'll just become Quickley monsters'

Trinity says, 'Who think they can run PD'

Trinity shudders.

Lia nods her agreement with Gad.

Lorenzo says, 'if it doesn't encourage them to learn their way, it at least keeps them from asking me for directions next time'

LadyAce says, 'speaking of newbies -- what sorts of things would help reach out to newbie RPers? *attempts vainly to steer topic*'

Trinity looks up into the sky and ponders.

Spite nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Lorenzo says, 'so the limit as we approach the end of time is that I only help people who want to learn'

Trinity says, 'Hacking into and destroying LegendDB'

Lorenzo beams delightedly.

Spite says, 'was just gonna say we gettin a little off topic'

Lia says, 'I always try to get people to walk the paths if they ask me to take them somewhere new.. tell them the general layout and help them if they get lost...'

Gad whispers quietly to Lia.

Finlay says, 'ones who come wanting to RP or ones who can learn it's a good thing?'

Spite cheers for Trinity - huzzah!

Mordor says, 'i can understand why people don't want to learn directions, a lot of folks only get time to play a little while each day, and spending that time exploring, is not a much fun as leveling getting new skills etc.'

Lia says to Trinity, 'that's got very little to do with RP really'

LadyAce says, 'one of the things that came up last time was "everyday rp" which is a good introduction for newbies'

Trinity says to Lia, 'Quite the contrary'

Finlay nods solemnly.

Trinity says to Lia, 'A newbie doesn't have to RP with me (which is about the only way to get directions from me) if they don't have to get directions from me'

LadyAce says, 'I think if they come wanting to RP, they probably have a head start over someone who has been here and is starting to be tempted, but doesn't know how to begin'

Lia says to LadyAce, 'What do you mean with that exactly? "everyday RP"'

Finlay says, 'one thing that's kind of clan centric -- is if they'd take the time to list their purpose and stuff. hard to tell what they might be about if they don't. hard to play off them or decide if you want to join themn'

Finlay nods his agreement with LadyAce.

LadyAce says to Lia, 'RP in the sense of being in character for mundane everyday things. talking with shopkeepers a bit, saying hello on the street, petting the demons if you're so inclined'

Gad says, 'cooking food?'

Gad gets a cast-iron skillet from a large sack of treats.

Gad gives a cast-iron skillet a spin.

Lia nods her agreement with LadyAce.

LadyAce says, 'rather than the thicker, scenario-based, story-behind-it sort of complex stuff'

Finlay says, 'reacting to taunts from mobs who don't like your align/flags, or whatever'

Lia never really does scenarios and pre-planned things anyway.

Spite says to LadyAce, 'I hope newbies dont pet my demons, they bite'

Gad chortles with amusement.

Finlay says to Spite, 'that's cool'

Finlay says, 'Who wasit that had that charmy who won and expie?'

Lia says, 'But it's sort of hard if you're a healer like me to get a tank to slow down and do the run RP style..'

Gad says, 'You need to find an RP tank'

LadyAce says, 'Mitra and Fred'

Gad winks suggestively at Lia.

LadyAce smiles at Finlay.

Spite says, 'people are in a rush for xp these days'

Trinity says to Lia, 'That depends on the player, I suppose'

Lia says, 'I mean.. there's barely time for me to make my poultice then root my mana up again for the next bout of killing'

Trinity nods her agreement with Gad.

Finlay nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Lia nods her agreement with Trinity.

Finlay says, 'that sort of thing's fun, when mobs are treated like characters on their own'

Lia says, 'Yes, find an RP tank.. good idea.. They're always on aren't they :p'

Gad peers at himself myopically.

Trinity has one.

Finlay hangs his head.

Trinity points at Gad.

Gad nods his agreement with Trinity.

Finlay needs to play more. and become a bigger tank.

Trinity says, 'He's one'

Trinity chuckles politely.

Trinity reports: 511/511 hp 537/575 mana 550/550 mv.

Mordor says, 'i'd interact loads more with mobs, if they did stuff back..'

LadyAce says, 'I think it might encourage people to be RP tanks if they end up with rp'ish members'

Finlay wantsta be one someday.

Trinity is sort of one.

Gad reports: 690/690 hp 365/365 mana 742/745 mv.

Lia looks up into the sky and ponders.

Gad nods to himself.

Trinity pointedly ignores Gad. Bit chilly in here, eh what?

Gad winks suggestively at Trinity.

Mok-Mok nods his agreement with LadyAce.

LadyAce says to Mordor, 'what sorts of interactions do you think would be cool?'

Mordor says, 'anything, really'

Mordor says, 'if ya poke someone like...'

Spite says to LadyAce, 'the belly dancer responding more to your flirting :)'

Mordor says, 'they shouldn't be pleased'

Gad says, 'Though I do agree... I have a bunch of aliased emotes for my surgeon that often go unnoticed...'

Lia says, 'I think I need to tone down my chattery gig a bit since I'm not that chattery and can't come up wit hthat much to babble about..'

Mordor says, 'they should slap you, that kinda thing'

Trinity giggles at Lia.

Lia says to Trinity, 'Gots to pick an RP you can _do_ consistantly..'

Gad nods his agreement with Lia.

Spite says, 'every mob should have the same deal tika has :)'

Trinity peers at herself myopically.

Spite nods to himself.

Lia says, 'Yes, we liked the Tika update'

Lorenzo shakes his head in disagreement with Spite.

Trinity says to Lia, 'How do you mean?'

Mordor bounces around.

Lia says to Trinity, 'Hmm?'

Lorenzo says to Spite, 'noooo...'

Lia says to Trinity, 'picking an RP one can do?'

Spite says, 'well aside from the well fouling deal'

Lorenzo cowers in fear!

LadyAce says, 'well, it's a lot of time spent, putting in interactions like that -- I think usually we try to be efficient and figure out what sorts of things people are most likely to try'

Spite throws his head back and cackles gleefully!

Trinity is confused.

Gad grumbles something about most groups not caring much if their surgeon likes to keep things sanitary.

Gad chuckles politely.

Trinity laughs.

Lia says, 'well wenches are likely to get flirted with..'

LadyAce smiles at Gad.

Mordor says, 'i like the way in zome zones, mobs that can't teach don't just look plain stupid when you ask, thatwas also a nice tough'

Trinity notes that nuns are likely to get flirted with in this playerbase.

Mordor says, 'touch'

Mordor says, 'ahem'

Spite says, 'especially that fine belly dancer, retrib always gives her a few spare moments when hes in town'

Lia says, 'and the sailors who flirt with girls should probably react to a slap'

Finlay comforts Trinity.

Gad says, 'I think wenches shoudl do like the maids in sherwood'

Gad grins evilly.

Finlay says to Trinity, 'that is sad to hear.'

Trinity shrugs philosophically.

Mordor wonders is he invisible

Mordor pokes himself in the ribs.

Gad peers around intently.

Finlay raises his eyebrow at Mordor.

Gad says, 'Where that Mordor guy go?'

LadyAce raises her eyebrow at Mordor.

LadyAce giggles.

Mordor smiles happily.

Gad thumps Mordor on the back.

Mordor coughs loudly.

Mordor says, 'spanx'

Gad nods his agreement with Mordor.

Mordor says, 'how reasurring :)'

Lia looks to Mordor expectantly, after he's got everybody's attention.

Mordor says, 'anyway,'

Finlay says to Mordor, 'Yeah. I like those too. they explain WHY they can't teach you too'

Gad plays something lively on a baby grand piano--he is quite good at it.

Finlay says, 'saves me from wasting my time'

Mordor says, 'i was just thinking it'd be cool, if when ya rp'd ya didn't get ripped by other players'

Lia nods solemnly.

Mordor says, 'it really puts someone off'

Mordor says, 'loads'

Gad says, 'I kinda like it when I sit in Norway and get asked, 'Teach''

Trinity laughs.

Trinity nods her agreement with Gad.

Mordor smiles happily.

Lia says, 'an actual response to the question teach as opposed to jsut blank looks which might be gotten with a badly phrased question'

Spite says to Mordor, 'with the diversity of the people here, from pkillers, to mobkillers and rpers, you are always going to get that'

Finlay says, 'I like ripping back, in character.'

LadyAce nods solemnly.

Trinity nods her agreement with Finlay.

Gad nods his agreement with Spite.

Finlay says, 'if they attack me, I assume they must be evil at heart and well..'

Finlay says, 'berate them for it.'

Spite says, 'pkers rip on mobkillers, mobkillers rip on pkers and they both rip on rpers'

Gad laughs.

Gad nods solemnly.

Trinity forgives them for their sins.

Finlay says, 'course hanging out with other peopel who are interesting in whatever floats your boat always helps too.'

Lia says to Spite, 'and that's so silly..'

Gad just whaps 'em.

Gad gives the black warhammer, 'Fjellbrann' a spin.

LadyAce says to Mordor, 'I do think sticking up for each other is a good start. And thickskinnedness. Do you have any thoughts about other ways to prevent it?'

Spite nods his agreement with Lia.

Spite says, 'liberal application of haleys crazy glue :P'

Trinity chuckles politely.

Spite gets a cheap replica of Haley's crazy glue from a patterned mauve leather pouch.

Gad says, 'I have been on the receiving end once'

Spite raises a cheap replica of Haley's crazy glue high in the air above his head.

Gad chortles with amusement.

Lia giggles at Spite.

Spite puts a cheap replica of Haley's crazy glue in a patterned mauve leather pouch.

Gad says, 'RP friends, and sometimes enemies can be great for sticking up for each other'

Trinity says, 'Well, I really like the fact that I saw tinyplot on the event calender. I think they go a long way towards bringing people into the fold.'

Gad nods to himself.

Finlay says, 'I doubt they'd learn from that -- or you mean leave 'em that way permanently?'

Mordor says, 'ya can't really rip them back, it just gets childish then, really fast, it's not like ya can embaress them socialy like ya could in real life'

Spite says to Trinity, 'I cant belive I missed that agrabah one, I had big plans for that with retrib, after all he is the agrabah mafia GM'

Finlay says, 'ignoring also works. I hate dealing with the ones that just refuse to get it for very long'

Trinity says, 'Tinyplots are sort of a way of legitimizing RP for those who normally wouldn't, and while they should not be the crux of the rp world, they could act as quite the impetus if run regularly'

Finlay says, 'but it also gets hard to remember who's on your blacklist for favors later'

Gad says, 'sometimes ignoring is needed, but sometimes the criticism and 'rips' can help you solidify your rp by making you explain thing ic'

Gad shrugs helplessly.

LadyAce says, 'could use your repudiate list for that :)'

Finlay nods his agreement with Gad.

Mordor says, 'and saying on public channels what a spare testicle someone is, just gets you ignored, the majority are opposed to rp and nothing will change that really, unless there is a system of rewards.... (i'm not actualy in it for the stuff he'

Finlay says, 'then you get flak for daring to do that!'

Mordor says, '.. here, swear'

Mordor says, 'but if any of you play d&d'

Mordor says, 'anyone ?'

Spite scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

Trinity refuses to admit such things.

Gad says, 'used to... like Paladium more personally'

Spite nods his agreement with Trinity.

Finlay says, 'a couple times at school'

Mordor says, 'it's common in some groups to reward the best rp'er with a bonus in some respect'

Lia shakes her head.

Trinity nods her agreement with Mordor.

Trinity nods her agreement with Mordor.

Mordor says, 'mostly for making more fun for everybody'

Finlay says, 'but having the computer do allthe dice and aribtrate the rules is much easier'

Mordor says, 'so if it was like that more people'd do it'

Finlay says, 'and more funwith more diverse people'

Gad says, 'I try to compliment a lot'

Gad scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

Trinity says, 'Well, I actually think it would be kind of neat if experience were rewarded for rp in some way. Like awarding xp to those involved in tinyplots, etc, etc. But now I'm just dreaming =)'

Spite says to Trinity, 'a whois would do, something you can look on as a sign of achievement'

Finlay tagged along and did nothing! And he wants his reward too just like in PD.

Trinity nods her agreement with Spite.

Finlay wrinkles his nose with distaste.

Spite says, 'like the tara one ages ago'

LadyAce says, 'that reminds me :)'

Gad says, 'I think the Samhain oen should be reintroduced next year'

An aura of heavenly light appears above Gad's head.

Mordor says, 'like i dunno if there is chandalier in the game ? but i'd probably rp a swahbuckler if i did rp here, and well jumping aorund like an idiot ain't great'

Lia says, 'with regards to the post Kae started and the strings and stuff, ... strings really help me in my RP, creates like the right atmosphere..'

Gad says, 'Yes it is'

Trinity nods her agreement with Lia.

Gad says, 'Jumping around like an idiot can be a great rp'

LadyAce says, '(whois trinity) There ya go, went in with the update.'

Trinity peers at herself myopically.

Spite says to Lia, 'dont giev too much away, Im still trying to work through that monster'

LadyAce nods solemnly.

Finlay says, '...helped a dying woman reunite with her lost child.'

Finlay raises an eyebrow questioningly.

Mordor says, 'but if ya could string bash to look like -- mordor leaps off a table and bodyslams the angry beaver...'

Trinity cheers for herself since no one else has.

Mordor says, 'or whatever'

Trinity hugs LadyAce.

Trinity says, 'Rockin!'

Mordor says, 'except loads of them'

Lia giggles at Mordor.

Mok-Mok says, 'this is a ooc discussion I assume?'

Spite cries on Trinity's shoulder.

Mordor says, 'and ya could pick a specific set for your rp'

Trinity nods her agreement with Mok-Mok.

Finlay sure hopes so.. cause definitely forgot his costume.

LadyAce says, 'I think that I'd like to see us use the Samhain one again, but what with the other things that happen on that day, I think it'd be hard to compete.'

Lia says, 'fight message coupons'

Mordor nods solemnly.

Spite says, 'Im all for more tinyplots'

Mordor says, 'exactly what i meant'

Mordor says, 'like moods are great'

Trinity nods her agreement with Spite.

Spite says, 'but they kinda need to last longer than a few hours at best'

LadyAce says, 'I think that it's on the list as a thing to try to work out a way to do ...fight message coupons.'

Lia loves moods.

Lia cheers for LadyAce - huzzah!

Trinity says, 'Really?'

Spite says, 'fight message coupons???'

Lia says, 'and post-titles.. I want post-titles!'

Mordor says, 'but i'm exuberant right now, i'd never kick someone in the small of the back, i'd get them right where it hurts'

Trinity nods her agreement with Lia.

Gad nods his agreement with Lia.

Spite says, 'am I missing something here?'

LadyAce isn't sure but thinks it was well-received enough to go on to a list, but will check.

Gad says, 'the Huge'

LadyAce says, 'post titles are in :)'

Gad pokes himself in the ribs.

Lia falls to her knees and worships LadyAce's existence.

LadyAce says, 'there aren't many (ok, there's one) but the code is in -- Sandra did it'

Lia says, 'woohoo!'

Trinity says, 'oooooo!'

LadyAce says, 'so, suggest quests that YOU think should have post titles with them'

Gad chuckles politely.

Gad says, 'Any one Gaddie does'

Lia says, '', companion to Beowulf' :)'

Gad nods to himself.

Spite says, 'ok Im totally out of the loop, what in gods sweet name is a post title?'

Gad falls flat on the ground trying to duck under a baby grand piano.

Trinity laughs.

Trinity giggles at Spite.

LadyAce says, 'Spite the cobbler'

Lia says to Spite, 'Warlord (pre) Spite the spiteful(post)'

Finlay says, 'the opposite of a pre-title?'

Finlay ducks to the ground.

Spite throws his head back and cackles gleefully!

LadyAce says, 'Warlord Spite the beggar'

LadyAce says, 'that kinda thing'

LadyAce giggles.

Trinity says to Spite, 'cool, eh?'

Lia says, 'spite, the warlord'

Spite says, 'thats kinda cool'

Lia says, 'ya!'

Spite says, 'warlord spite the insane'

LadyAce says, 'Sir Spite, King of the Britons'

Spite nods to himself.

Trinity chuckles politely.

Trinity says, 'Sister Trinity, Vampire Slayer'

Gad says, 'Gad the huge'

Gad flexes his bulging, impressive muscles.

Gad nods to himself.

Spite says, 'if I were insane, then Id have an excuse'

Lia nods her agreement with Trinity.

Mordor says, ''

Lia says, 'Vampire slayer needs to go in'

Trinity nods her agreement with Lia.

Mordor says, 'doh! i will keep doing that excuse well i go and punish myself'

Spite says, 'so how are these port titles supposed to work?'

Trinity says, 'it could be in the Vlad killing quest'

Gad says, 'or hunter'

Lia nods her agreement with Trinity.

Trinity nods her agreement with Gad.

Trinity says, 'or, even So and So the Vampire'

LadyAce says, 'they're associated with completing certain quests, essentially'

Spite nods solemnly.

Lia says to LadyAce, 'Not available for 3 redeem points?'

LadyAce says, 'builders put them in'

Trinity chuckles politely.

LadyAce shakes her head in disagreement with Lia.

Spite says, 'what if, like me you've already done most quests :P'

Lia bursts into tears.

Trinity comforts Lia.

LadyAce says, 'they COULD be automatically applied when you log in, if they're put in after you do the quest'

Lorenzo says to Spite, 'gosh, you *have* already done most quests!'

LadyAce says, 'is up to the builder'

Finlay says, 'it'd come automatically if one were added to an old quest, right? like the whois titles do>?'

Spite says, 'warlord spite the carnival guy!'

Spite nods to himself.

Lia says, 'Carnival Owner'

Trinity says to Spite, 'Warlord Spite the Geek'

Lia says, 'Carnival Director'

Trinity taunts Spite mercilessly.

LadyAce says, 'Ringmaster :)'

Lia says, 'right'

Lia says to LadyAce, 'that's what I was looking for'

Trinity meant as biting heads off of chickens geek.

Spite licks Trinity.

Trinity giggles.

LadyAce says, 'I'll probably filter through the pretitles to pull out things that would be better as post titles'

Spite says, 'good, cos half those pretitles either never get used or just dont suit anyone'

LadyAce says, 'well, very few of them are actually unused'

Mordor says, 'well anything with the word the at the start can go on that list'

LadyAce says, 'I did try to filter through the unused one, and was able to pull like, 3 :P'

Trinity says to LadyAce, 'thats a great idea (vampire hunter) you should do that soon (vampire hunter) and see what you come up with (vampire hunter)'

Spite says, 'wow theres 144 of em now'

LadyAce giggles at Trinity.

Finlay giggles at Trinity.

An aura of heavenly light appears above Trinity's head.

LadyAce says, 'it means they were mistakenly set up as strings, but they're not restringable or anything'

LadyAce says, 'oops, was meant to be a tell.'

Trinity giggles.

Trinity says, 'Secrets!'

Mordor pats LadyAce on the head.

Trinity says, 'Scandalous!'

Mordor says, 'happens to me all the time'

LadyAce says, 'nah :P not very secret!'

Trinity says to LadyAce, 'Don't ruin my vision!'

Trinity chuckles politely.

LadyAce giggles.

Trinity says, 'If I may, I would like to discuss the newbie-rp thing some more, or hear more ideas on how to draw more into the fold'

Mordor says, 'anyway back to that rewarding the hardcore rp'ers with combat coupons and what not, what ya think ?'

Trinity chuckles politely.

Lia nods her agreement with Trinity.

Trinity says, 'Mordor first!'

Lia says, 'hardcore rpers..'

Lia winces.

Trinity giggles.

Mordor says, 'ahh well'

Lia can't help but choke on that one.

Spite says, 'no such thing anymore :P'

Mordor says, 'i wanted to be graphic'

Trinity goes EEK! at LadyAce in distress - isn't LadyAce an awful person for teasing?

LadyAce says to Mordor, 'I think we're more likely to make it like a desc. But maybe with a higher level req as an incentive'

Mordor says, 'anyway hardcore is a cool word in some countries'

Trinity smiles at Mordor.

Mordor pokes americans in general

Lia nods her agreement with Mordor.

Spite says, 'like NZ :P'

LadyAce says, 'but it hasn't been coded or whatnot, so :P'

Lia says to Mordor, 'with the harcore l33t pk'ers here...'

Mordor smiles happily.

LadyAce says, 'as Trinity said -- hey, what about those newbies? :)'

Trinity nods solemnly.

Lia looks up into the sky and ponders.

LadyAce says, 'how can we draw them into RP and corrupt them into being those hardcore folks who are so fun to play with? :)'

Mordor nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Trinity giggles.

Finlay says, 'when I first started, I got pulled in by a couple ofpeople I met up with, they were higherlevel, but very helpful in helping me learn the culture here.'

Mordor blushes bright red.

Finlay says, 'not just the gamessystem'

Mok-Mok says, 'as far as the newbie thing goes, we need to do a NPH thing with good rpers and only respond in char. worked for me when Aaarrghh did it'

Spite says, 'well back when I was a newbie, I noticed clans used to rp between themselves a lot more'

Gad says, 'a nun corrupting the multitude? Though that was priests'

Gad winks suggestively at Trinity.

Lia says, 'Well, when meeting a newbie take them around slowly to the interesting notables in the neighbourhood and talk about them like people?'

Finlay nods his agreement with Mok-Mok.

Trinity goes EEK! at Gad in distress - isn't Gad an awful person for teasing?

Trinity nods her agreement with Lia.

LadyAce says, 'clans can be a good intro for people into RP'

Gad says, 'Yeah... tell them some of the history if you know it, and make it up if you dont'

Gad nods to himself.

Finlay chuckles politely at Gad's feeble witticism.

Trinity says, 'See, when I mentioned LegendDB earlier, it was not the website itself, it was what it represented that I see as the problem'

Lia says, 'yeah, what clan is really going to take an untried newbie into their midst like that?'

Spite says, 'is there some way to either is there not something that could be done to improve clans, and have them rp more, after all they are RP clans'

Spite peers at himself myopically.

Mordor says, 'yeah, back in the day someone called wixe took me around like everywhere and showed me everything, she was neat, bring her back and all the people like her that used to play here'

LadyAce says to Spite, 'let's get that after newbies, it's a great topic'

LadyAce says, 'Wixe is still 'round?'

Spite says to LadyAce, 'its tied to the newbie thing'

LadyAce swears she saw her recently and stuff.

Mordor says, 'not for 4 years'

Gad says, 'Wixen...'

Finlay says, 'Wixen?'

Trinity giggles.

LadyAce says, 'oh, Wixen, nod.'

LadyAce giggles.

Mordor says, 'well i'm not on so much, but i've not seen her in ages'

Gad chortles with amusement.

Mordor says, 'i really should look for her, technically she ruined my social life'

Lia says to LadyAce, 'You are remembering the old Wixe'

Spite says, 'if you were a newbie and all these clans of people were enganged in some heavy rp, that might convince the non warped mind of the newbie to give it a try'

Lia nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Gad nods his agreement with Spite.

Trinity nods her agreement with Spite.

LadyAce says, 'yea, it's a leadership thing.'

Mok-Mok nods his agreement with Spite.

LadyAce says, 'and a peer pressure thing'

Mordor says, 'if i was a newbie and i reckoned i'd get cool stuff for rp'ing i'd do it'

Lia nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Gad says to Spite, 'That was the Rune Knights for me'

Finlay says, 'and I've had a hard time finding a "good" clan that wasn't religious or knightly'

Trinity pouts at Finlay.

Gad chuckles politely.

Gad says, 'There are some'

Spite says, 'actually I think it was something like hermetics and some knight clan when I started that got me thinking about rp'

LadyAce says, 'OTS is pretty harmless, Institute, Fields of Albion, Hermetics, maybe Coven...all good or sorta good.'

Finlay says to Trinity, 'sorry, but while I'm a champion for good. not quite so noble and not so self-giving'

Trinity chuckles politely.

Gad says, 'I had one, but it got corrupted over time with changes in leadership'

Mordor says, 'cause like it's not considered so cool to tell yer mates in real life ya play on muds, it's justa tad worse to say you rescued a princess and tried to kill a dragon, but the pirates of bubble island thought it'd cool if they killed t'

Mordor says, '.. the dragon'

Trinity giggles.

Gad says, 'Coven is good?'

Mordor says, 'that's why tis unpoular, i guess'

LadyAce says to Mordor, 'get some new mates'

Gad ponders his own existence - better keep an eye on him.

LadyAce winks suggestively at Mordor.

Lia says, 'I do think that the clans can be more vocal more clearly stated about their RP and such.. but that hinges on the involvement of the GM and members really'

LadyAce says to Gad, 'well, depends on your definition of good?'

Gad laughs.

Gad says, 'Gonna go into the whole 'perspective' thing'

LadyAce says, 'christiany good, no. but not evilly demony types.'

Gad winks suggestively at LadyAce.

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

Trinity says, 'It seems to me that, right now, the push clan-wise is towards pk clans. And very few of those clans push for any rp at all'

Spite says, 'why not? pretty much all my mates know I mud and its cool, but thats cos we constantly roleplay different systems together anyway'

Spite nods his agreement with Trinity.

Mordor nods solemnly.

Lia nods her agreement with Trinity.

Spite says, 'me and herbert tried to make that switch with murder inc, the total rp, pk clan'

Mordor says, 'but what if ya spend yer other spare time doing non gamer stuff, like a lot of people here'

Gad nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'I dunno about where the push is, but I agree that few of them have a heavy rp presence'

Lia says, 'all the hooplah about clans lately is that PK is dead'

Lia says, 'yadda yadda..'

Lorenzo says to Lia, 'no, you're behind. the hooplah now is that it's coming back'

Lia says to Lorenzo, 'Oh sorry, did I blink there?'

LadyAce giggles at Lorenzo.

Gad says, 'and according to some...'

Gad says, 'Vahn'

Gad says, 'Rp is dead'

Finlay says, 'long live RP'

Lia giggles.

LadyAce says, 'so, what kinds of things would be good for increasing & encouraging those clans?'

Gad whistles innocently to himself.

Finlay says to Gad, 'does he even play here?'

Spite says, 'its not dead, just been sleeping a really long time'

Trinity shrugs philosophically, commiserating with LadyAce.

Gad says, 'he comes and complains, then leaves'

Gad chuckles politely.

Lorenzo says to Finlay, 'play? no. Obstruct?'

Lorenzo says to Finlay, 'no comment'

Trinity says to LadyAce, 'I'd like to know'

Lia says, 'Well, I think it would be a splendid idea to encourage the GM's to write up slightly longer intros for the clan listings?'

Mordor says, 'then it becomes almost like self degradation, silly really, but if ya got sutff then ya could justify it to yourself (by the way i'm a such a kid ) and i'm not obsessed with stuff, but a lot of people are, and it'd be such an encourag'

Mordor says, '..ment'

Spite says to Lia, 'hey I resemble that remark, I don wanna write up any more about the mafia thans already there'

Mordor says, 'and please remove the say lenght, it's like 10 characters to short my my huge mouth'

LadyAce says, 'it seems like the stronger the char, the fewer clans they'd fit with. A bland person would fit with anyone, a more defined personality is either a perfect fit, makes their own clan, or fits nowhere.'

Mok-Mok says, 'how about a reward if 5 or members of an rp clan group. xp or string wise'

Trinity has had not even one single seeker to Templars since the post went up two weeks ago. And the Temple intro is pretty nice, in her humble opinion.

Lia nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Finlay says, 'so it's jkust a bunch of mages? how's it a mafia?'

Mordor claps for Mok-Mok approvingly.

Gad says to Trinity, 'and I had about that the entire time I was there too'

Mordor says, 'well said that man'

Trinity nods her agreement with Gad.

Mok-Mok bows before Mordor.

LadyAce nods her agreement with Lia.

LadyAce says to Lia, 'that's a good idea, I can start sending leetle notes :)'

Lia beams delightedly.

Lia polishes her glasses.

Lia sharpens her nails against her shirt in self-congratulations.

Finlay says to Trinity, 'yeah. that one's fairly informative, but show's you're looking for a specific type of RP... if you're not into that...'

Finlay shrugs philosophically.

Lia says, 'that was the one I wanted..'

Spite says, 'Im guilty of it too, I dont enforce any rp with the mafia, I have a set of guidelines Id like them to follow but I wont force anything'

Trinity nods her agreement with Finlay.

LadyAce says, 'My goal for the next year or so is to get each clan to sponsor or run some kind of event.'

Spite says, 'if the oportunity arises to rp the mafia some, then I'll encourage people to take it up'

Lia says, 'yay.. great idea'

Trinity is running an event in two weeks!

LadyAce says, 'even if they're not an RP-heavy clan and want to do a trivia, then great.'

LadyAce says to Trinity, 'oh? what? :)'

LadyAce says, 'but RP is of course better :)'

Gad bows deeply.

Trinity says to LadyAce, 'Public induction ceremony. The equivalent of a marriage to the Temple.'

Gad says, 'RP calls'

Gad winks suggestively.

LadyAce will put it on events, hehehe.

LadyAce says to Trinity, 'if you don't mind :)'

Trinity will post it and send ya a note.

LadyAce says, 'super'

LadyAce says, 'see, then maybe you'll escape my events arm-twisting. Maybe not, tho.'

Trinity giggles.

Mordor says, 'i was married here once, got a fairly good turn out, but the girl turned phscho and said she was gonna come find in reallife and marry me, she wasna a looker either, kinda me off for a while too'

Trinity laughs.

LadyAce chuckles politely.

Finlay comforts Mordor.

Mok-Mok laughs.

LadyAce says, 'well, there's that tricky line between IC and OOC, I guess :)'

LadyAce says, 'too much mudsex, she thought you really loved her? :) *is teasing*'

Finlay says, 'uh oh...public birth?'

Mordor says, 'i won't name names but i haven't seen her in a while either, how long do people usualy last here ?'

Trinity says to LadyAce, 'But more tinyplots for sure. Time to start forcing the PR imms to rotate running one a month'

Spite says to Mordor, 'my mud life and RL are kept as far apart as I can get them without popping a muscle'

Finlay points to gossip.

LadyAce giggles at Finlay.

Lia has been here since 96.

Trinity is older than you.

Trinity sticks her tongue out at Lia. =P

Lia pouts at Trinity.

Mordor says, 'till now i never knew there was a gossip channel'

Spite says, 'my first time here was just after SL went in, like maybe 3 months after'

Finlay has only been around a year or so.

LadyAce says to Trinity, 'Are you volunteering to be my cat-herder? :P Forcing an imm to do anything is like, trying to make a cat take a bath. You can try, probly fail, and was it even a good idea...?'

Trinity giggles.

Trinity says to LadyAce, 'Want me to send some notes?'

Spite says, 'but because I drink too much and smoked too many drugs I have no idea how long its been'

Trinity winks suggestively at LadyAce.

LadyAce giggles at Trinity.

Mordor says, 'if ya had a big orange and black cat it wouldn't a problem, i think ya just gotta find the right imm'

Trinity will whip things into shape.

Lia says, 'Have to run catch my bus'

Trinity waves good-bye to Lia.

Finlay says, 'is there a way to mail a clan's GM directly without knowing who it is?'

Mordor waves good-bye to Lia.

Trinity says to Finlay, 'I wish'

Lia says to Finlay, 'that would be a GOOD IDEA!'

LadyAce says to Finlay, 'no, but we wish there was.'

Spite says, 'when exactly did SL go in?'

LadyAce says, 'that and an easy way to mail all members of a clan.'

LadyAce says, 'instead of a big ol cc line'

Trinity says, 'You could just type "mail *clanname*"'

Finlay says, 'would make it easier to drop some hints to people their purpose and stuff could use some work... "I was interesting in finding out more about your clan.. but your info's BLANK!"'

Mordor says, 'at least 7 years ago, i'd asay maybe less though, like 5, actually i dunno'

Spite says to LadyAce, 'the clanmail thing is a great idea'

Trinity nods her agreement with Spite.

LadyAce started in December of 1994 :)

Trinity says, 'Definately'

Trinity whistles at LadyAce appreciatively.

LadyAce is ooooold.

Spite says, 'updates will tell me right?'

Trinity was here in August of 95.

Trinity flexes her bulging, impressive muscles.

LadyAce says to Spite, 'tell you what? If it goes in? or?'

Finlay says, 'when SL went in'

LadyAce says, 'oh.'

LadyAce looks up into the sky and ponders.

Trinity says, 'areainfo sl'

Trinity says, 'areainfo shadows, rather'

Spite says, 'wow early 97 is when I started'

Spite says, '5 years'

Spite bursts into tears.

Trinity thumps Spite on the back.

Spite says, 'oh wait its almost the end of the year, almost 6 years'

Spite says, 'thats even worse'

Trinity says, 'So a friend of mine was sitting in the Reception, and this newbie comes up to them and says, "Hi! I'm from the future and have somehow become stuck in this strange time and land, and could use some assistance finding a way back."'

Finlay says, 'sounds like a start! better than "Dude, what do I do here."'

Trinity says, 'Just as my friend was preparing to engage in pretty cool rp, someone else in the room cut and pasted a certain website and indicated that any info on time travel could be found there'

Spite says, 'I have something else about rp, is there some way to restrict rp types by not giving out a hundred desc's of snipers hiding in the shadows and such'

LadyAce says, 'well, we try to make them unique, or we won't approve them'

Spite says, 'I mean realistically how many shadowy snipers or assassins can hide in the shadows of the stag'

LadyAce says, 'is amazing for how many people, that shadowy desc is what they want'

Finlay says, 'laugh at them?'

LadyAce giggles.

Finlay says, 'especially if you can see they're there?'

Finlay says, 'must not be any good if you can'

Mok-Mok says, 'are the nph officially disbanded?'

Spite says, 'we can only hope'

LadyAce says, 'they were disbanded by lack of members, yea'

Finlay holds his head down and mourns the dead.

Spite says, 'I bet all their members had breakdowns'

Trinity How about an RPer and PKer of the Month type thing. The LT announce the casting of votes one a month, and the winners posted there and on the welcome board

Mordor nods solemnly.

Spite says, 'I would if I was constantly helping newbies'

Tweety yells, 'Heeewp! Heeewp! Gwanny!'

Trinity has no idea why she emoted that.

Trinity meant to say it.

Lorenzo' : '

Trinity giggles.

Spite says, 'and dont anyone dare say expies are used for best rper :P'

Lorenzo says, 'same finger?'

Lorenzo smiles at Trinity.

Mordor says, 'more like most popular :)'

Trinity giggles.

Spite says, 'thats where people go 'I cant think of anyone right now for best male rper so I'll just write mcdougan'

Trinity says, 'I think good rp makes one popular'

Lorenzo says to Trinity, 'if only the inverse were equally true'

Finlay says to Trinity, '"good" or "quality"?'

Trinity says to Finlay, 'Well. A bit of both. How about memorable?'

Finlay says, 'cause I hear a lot of people say you can't do evil, because you have to be a jerk and people won'tlike you then'

Spite says, 'err yeah a good rp might not make you very popular :P'

Mok-Mok nods his agreement with Finlay.

Finlay thinks they mostly have no good evil role models

Trinity says, 'Not true at all. Marcel is a prefect example of evil that people like.'

Trinity says, 'perfect, even'

Lorenzo says to Finlay, 'those are people with a limited sense of how to be evil'

Spite says, 'it is :P'

Spite ducks to the ground.

Lorenzo says to Finlay, 'how can you truly impart evil if you can't make people like you?'

Finlay always thought psycokiller was the lazy approach to rping evil

Lorenzo says, 'I mean, look at Ashcroft.'

Trinity nods her agreement with Finlay.

Spite nods his agreement with Finlay.

Spite says, 'evil is an artform'

Finlay says, 'there's too much boring evil around here.. I should go kill them all for it!'

Finlay nods to himself.

Trinity says, 'Back to the RPer and PKer of the week. How about that idea? Anyone think its cool? Does it suck?'

Trinity says, 'Er..month'

Trinity giggles.

Mordor says, 'i thought it was cool'

Mok-Mok says, 'would be a good thing'

Mordor says, 'ya could have a plaque in the stag or reception, like employee of the month'

Finlay says, 'wouldn't it just be the same popularity thing all over again?'

Trinity giggles.

Spite says, 'its a good idea, but how long will people keep it up when the most popular people win over and over again'

Mordor nods solemnly.

Trinity shakes Spite's hand.

Trinity peers at herself myopically.

Trinity shakes her head in disagreement with Spite.

Trinity says to Spite, 'It forces people to strive to be memorable rpers, and pkers'

Trinity says, 'Encourages, rather'

Trinity looks up into the sky and ponders.

Finlay says to Trinity, 'how would you suggest running it?'

Trinity says, 'Or it could be made so that you can only win once a year?'

Spite says, 'yes but someone might rp to the best of their ability, and it might even be a good rp, but depending on who voted for it, the most popular of the mud citizens would win'

Mordor says, 'there is a ballot box in san fran, something like that make it a quest that removes itself from your file every week'

LadyAce says, 'well, that's what polls are for -- it has some no-stuffing filtering'

Mordor says, 'that way everyone get one vote, with an automatic system'

Trinity nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Mok-Mok says, 'make it time played specific. have to be in the top 10 to win or some such.'

Trinity says to LadyAce, 'Polls would be a rockin way to do it'

Mordor says, 'or polls, say but ya can rp putting a voting slip thingy in a box'

Spite says, 'if it came down to say j random newbie and hmmm say moiragwyn I guarantee people would choose MG over the newbie'

Trinity says, 'Not necessarily'

Mordor says, 'if it's everyweek, i don't think it'd be like that forever'

Mordor says, 'stygian would always vote for mikeala but that'd be it i think'

Trinity says, 'Every month'

Finlay says, 'how would you pick who was on the ballot?'

Mordor says, 'everyone'

Mordor says, 'or everybody could run for election kinda thing'

Mok-Mok says, 'or the person with the most votes gets to award the person they think deserves it'

Lorenzo says to Finlay, 'fill in the blank, not multiple choice :)'

Mordor says, 'i'd award it to myself for being really cool'

Trinity giggles.

Finlay says, 'couldn't use the polls then... they said they couldn't do fill in the blankback with the player info one they did'

Trinity says, 'Well, I think it would be spiffy if you could only win once a year or something'

Lorenzo says, 'ah... i guess not'

Trinity says, 'Or just not win consecutively'

Lorenzo nods solemnly.

Mordor says, 'but what if you really are the best for like four weeks running'

Mordor says, 'that should be recognised too'

Spite says, 'limiting the times you could win would fix most problems with biase'

Trinity says to Mordor, 'Its not a matter of being recognized, really. As much as a way of encouraging people to strive to win it'

Trinity says, 'Thereby increasing Rp'

Spite nods his agreement with Trinity.

Lorenzo says, 'I spose you could be required to join an rp clan, so that the candidates are enumerable, but that has obvious drawbacks'

Mordor says, 'anyway i rarely see rping actualy going on, and i'm logged on for almost 7 hours a day here in work'

Finlay grumbles to Lorenzo.

LadyAce says, 'I guess I'm not sure how we could talk about "best" -- "person I saw who was doing great" is more like it'

Trinity rps 90 percent of the time she's on.

Finlay says to Mordor, 'where do you hang out?'

Spite says, 'hmmm ive been logged in for 21 hours atm'

Trinity nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Finlay comforts Spite.

Mordor says, 'well when i'm not xping, whatever inn is closest'

Trinity says, 'Hence the award is not Best RPer, but RPer of the Month'

LadyAce says, 'the LT is good for recognizing the 'caught being good' types'

Trinity nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Mordor says, 'which is usualy the stag/recpetion'

Finlay says, 'well, there's your problem'

Finlay snorts derisively.

Mordor blushes bright red.

Finlay giggles.

Mok-Mok nods his agreement with Finlay.

Mordor says, 'well if yer gonna do be behind closed doors'

Trinity says to LadyAce, 'Winners could be published in the LT, on welcome board, etc'

Spite says, 'hehehe I dunno, Ive been dragged into some small rp while sitting at stag :P'

Lorenzo nods his agreement with Spite.

Finlay says to Mordor, 'just saying the over abundance of non-rpers who frequent those inns might skew your view too'

Lorenzo says, 'me too'

Lorenzo kicks and screams.

Mordor nods solemnly.

Spite nods his agreement with Lorenzo.

Mordor says, 'guess so'

Trinity says, 'I would suggest voting occur on the website, perhaps. Then you do a fill in the blank format and still manage to keep one ip at a time voting'

LadyAce says, 'that and being on from work means you're probably not exactly joe interactive conversationalist :)'

Trinity giggles.

Mordor says, 'ok, if ya rp on chat evtualy it'll be knocked by non rp'ers, can the imms make a new channel called rp ? just to have'

Spite says, 'retrib would be more interactive on chat but well ummmm...'

Trinity considers gossip rp.

Spite scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

LadyAce says, 'I would rather have people exposed to RP....'

Mok-Mok types so damn slow, the conversation changes by the time he finishes.

Mordor nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, '"get that freakin RP off the chat channel, you loser!"'

LadyAce shudders.

Mordor nods solemnly.

Trinity chuckles politely.

Spite nods his agreement with LadyAce.

LadyAce says, 'go RP on the RP channel, that's what it's THERE FOR.'

LadyAce can hear it now :(

Spite peers at himself myopically.

Trinity nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Spite says, 'Im sure Ive said that once or twice before too'

Mordor says, 'if oyu have a chioce it's easier to choose to do it, i drink and smoke and stuff, cause i had a choice and it was frowned on, so seeing as rp is frowned on, give people a choice, nah, that really doesn't work'

Spite whistles innocently to himself.

Trinity says, 'RP is not frowned upon'

Trinity pouts.

Mordor says, 'by some'

Mok-Mok nods solemnly.

Spite says, 'it is by the general populace'

Finlay hugs Trinity reassuringly.

Trinity sighs loudly.

Finlay says, 'nah.. i'd say it's by the VOCAL populace...'

Trinity supposes she doesn't hang with the general populace, then.

Mordor says, 'anyway, i've been on pure rp muds well as pure as ya get, (nowhere near a good as here in other respects) and it really is upsetting the way ya can't avoid it at times'

Spite nods his agreement with Mordor.

Trinity says, 'Now, I'm not for RP 100 percent of the time. I have times when I log on and I just want to slay things mindlessly'

Finlay nods his agreement with Trinity.

Mordor says, 'like i looged on as mordor and tried to play a muck savage from ireland, and i was kicked off for not being a evil guy looking for the one ring'

Mordor says, 'which was silly i thought'

Mordor says, 'so ya can't go over board with the getting it out there in peoples faces'

Trinity can't tell you how long it took her to get people to understand she was *not* the chic from the Matrix.

Finlay says, 'well at least there's a rather broad theme here that helps the place'

Mordor smiles at Trinity.

Trinity nods her agreement with Finlay.

Mordor says, 'it took me till now to figure out your player name'

Trinity chuckles politely.

Trinity smiles at Mordor.

Spite says to Trinity, 'I had that same problem when I created a silver haired warrior maiden named storm, unfortunately just after the xmen movie'

Mordor says, 'i tried to kill you in romania'

Mordor says, 'completely by accident'

Trinity giggles.

Trinity laughs.

Finlay says to LadyAce, 'I was reading the log from last week's session... any more thoughts on the RPer registry idea?'

Trinity says to Mordor, 'happens all the time'

Finlay says, 'probably wouldbe good ifthere were a PK one too since people complain they don't know who they can kill too'

Mordor says, 'are other people gonna see this ?'

Spite says, 'ooohh im in a church, theres a nun, bash it!!!!'

Trinity laughs.

Mordor smiles happily.

Trinity nods her agreement with Spite.

Finlay says, 'like I know some people think PK's ok with RP, but others are on the other extreme'

Mordor says, 'if everydoby sees my blaring typos, i'll just die of shame, can they be fixed before *everyone* gets to see the log'

Spite chuckles politely at Mordor's feeble witticism.

Mordor says, 'and leave that last bit out too, it wouldn't do anything for my image'

Trinity nudges LadyAce.

Trinity thinks LA has died on us.

Mordor says, 'poo'

Spite nods his agreement with Trinity.

LadyAce is here and stuff :)

Trinity giggles.

Trinity cheers for LadyAce - huzzah!

Mordor says, 'i was starting to liker her'

LadyAce is getting attacked by her cat, is all :)

Mordor says, 'oh'

Trinity says to LadyAce, 'I can comisserate'

LadyAce says to Finlay, 'I keep wishing I had time to go back through that log and distill out ideas -- I'm hoping with less going on the next week (no halloween, for instance) that'll be easier'

Finlay nods solemnly.

Finlay says, 'I've been trying to think of up what I'd want to include on there and like to see about others'

LadyAce says to Mordor, 'we all make typos :) no one will think ill of you'

Spite says, 'I cant comm-whatever I dont even know what that is :P'

Trinity giggles.

Finlay says, 'I even dug around some RP sites looking for like char generation questions to define chars for hardcore places like LARPs and such'

Mordor says, 'oh that makes me feel much better'

Finlay says, 'but some were overwhelmingly thorough and stuff'

Mordor says, 'well tis goin' home time for me'

Mordor waves happily.

Finlay waves good-bye to Mordor.

Mok-Mok waves happily.

Trinity looks up into the sky and ponders.

Spite says to LadyAce, 'well I hope we were able to shed some light on some rp issues for ya'

LadyAce says, 'indeedy'

LadyAce thanks Spite heartily.

LadyAce says, 'I hope you were helpful to each other :)'

Mok-Mok is slow.

Trinity says, 'So, in closing, more tinyplots, whip clans into doing events, and do something about newbies'

Finlay says to LadyAce, 'Oh! that was one thought I had about the website... you guys have that The Players section but it points to character pages... do you still do those?'

LadyAce giggles at Trinity.

Trinity giggles.

Spite says, 'just dont tell anyone I was here, I have a reputation to uphold'

Trinity nods her agreement with Finlay.

Finlay says, 'and shouldn't it say chars, and the The Players one point to that photo page'

LadyAce says, 'all good ideas.'

LadyAce says, 'if Kaige were here, she'd do a little dance about using idea/bug/typo about now.'

LadyAce will do it for her.

Trinity giggles at Spite.

Finlay scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

Trinity says to Spite, 'Your secret's safe with us'

Spite thanks Trinity heartily.

Trinity says, 'Alrighty! Thanks for the forum, LA!'

Trinity waves happily.

Spite nods solemnly.

Spite waves happily.

LadyAce gives a big hug to everyone in the room.

LadyAce waves happily.
