    Where I come from, "doing the old english" leaves quite the carpet rash.

    I am so making a Dark Elf on an RP server. Just to hang out in T1 zones and read the sadistic cyber and horrible goth/emo RP.


    This is why I want my guild to beat up of the Dark Elves first. While they're cutting themselves and undulging in sado-cyber, their cities are going to get hosed. I forsee a near-constant looting of their captial.

    It's like fighting night elves in WoW....yeah, they're easy targets, but most of them *deserve* it.

    sadly i've only retained a few explitives and insults : /

    ...I'll probably just be telling most RP'rs to "Geh toten dich"


    and maybe i'll run around yelling the killing joke (monty python) in RP beginner zones to see if anyone gets it

    I think I'm one of very few people to get reported for RP.

    Is there much siege weaponry in WAR, and do players interact with it much? That stuff was always my favorite part of warhammer.

    There's a few things. Attacking keeps, you can use a bastilla, a catapult and a battering ram. Defending keeps lets you use boiling oil and I think bastillas.

    There's a minigame to aim each one which is kinda like a swing timer from a golf game.

    I thought it has already been established that we're going to play on an RP server of some kind, pending the rulesets which I don't think have been released yet, making arguing about it a rather moot point.

    OH UH! Better brush up on some of that German, Zzulu!

    Also, you're not allowed to do anything unless you can write a five page essay in which you make clear the psychological motivations of your character for doing it and how this relates to established ingame lore. Essays will need to be rewritten if lore undergoes retroactive change.

    then I'm going to roleplay a witchelf possessed by an orc shaman who in turn is possessed by gork and mork, but also corrupted by all the dark gods simultaneously and oh, I'll also be having a secret pact with sigmar himself who spoke to me in a dream, because I'm actually a champion of the light, destined to save the universe single-handedly from the forces of destruction

    that's right

    It's brilliant

    Or we could just not be utter gits and play like regular people.

    I don't see RP servers as places to wax poetically about yonder lore, but to get away from the leet speaking asshats and douchebags found more readily on non-rp servers (in my experience, at least).

    If I want to fight opponents named Flowerpot, Keybored, Stealthrogue, Dethrapyr and whatnot, I'll just log into a WoW PVP server.

    I still would prefer a regular pvp server. Preferably the biggest one out there. To me, RP servers always seem to end up in the shadow

    I've had very mixed experiences with RP. Some fantastic times, and then some times when i just felt physically uncomfortable seeing what people were typing. And i'm not talking about cyber or anything, just the intenisty that some people "rp" at. But i assume we won't have that problem in WAR. Hell, i rolled on an rppvp server on AoC and didn't see a single piece of rping for over 30 levels!

    If it's anything like WoW, many of the more devout RP'ers will set up unofficial spots to do so, areas that are convenient and often out of the way in towns or other havens. I doubt you'll stumble across a whole lot of it in the midst of questing, RVR or other general playtime. I've been on a WoW RP server basically since the game came out, and the number of times I've stumbled across RP "in the wild" can probably be counted on one hand, and this is one of the biggest and oldest servers in North America.

    Our mileage may, in fact, vary, but I doubt it'll be a huge deal. Don't want to RP? Don't go looking for it, and grit your teeth quietly if it finds you once a month or two. As long as they have something resembling a naming convention, I'll be very happy indeed.

    Edit: I suspect that much of the RP will simply involve talking like the Greenskins seem to talk and yelling WAAAAAAAAAGH a whole bunch. Which could be weird coming from a Chosen.

    Nobody steal my RP idea!

    Pretty much this. It's also nice because it opens the avenue to RP if you are so inclined.

    The conclusion was that a PvP oriented server would be first priority (not FFA, but where there are fewer safe zones), with RP a close second. An "open" PvP-RP ruleset would be ideal.

    No one will be forced to roleplay, which would be stupid. It's more what Forar said; better naming conventions and potentially fewer asshats.

    Also, bad roleplaying and anything involving being a disguised dragon/angel/daemon/drow/vampire will be a bannable offense.

    I have my suspicions we'll see a lot of disguised drow. They might call themselves dark elves, but just to be on the safe side I think witch elf = autoban is a good policy.

    Witch Elves are cool.

    Doesn't mean they shouldn't be watched extremely closely. I think the lore gives good guidance there; they're a bunch of crazy bitches that should be kept on a short, short leash.
