  1. Kerala's Death Song (based on Red Hot Chili Peppers - Brendan's Death Song) Way up high I know She's watching me. Why do you cry? Our Mother calls, and now I sing for you, before I fly. Although our paths have parted you know I'll be nearby. A mournful sound and now it's all around. Do you know why? In whispered wind, in the grass and the rain, all spirits sigh. So when you feel sad remember this song; It's my goodbye. Now I sing: My spirit takes to wing; I don't want you to grieve. And when your heart feels scarred, you'll be alright you'll see. I'll live in memory Now I sing: My spirit takes to wing; I don't want you to grieve. I know it might be hard for you to understand. Remember and believe. We both know someday we'll have to go; We all must die. And we both try to live our lives with pride. Dry your eyes because I love you. And we both agreed. I never lie. Now I sing: My spirit takes to wing; I don't want you to grieve. And when your heart feels scarred , you'll be alright you'll see. I'll live in memory Let me live so when it's time to die, I will honor my tribe. Let me die so when it's time to leave, another sun will rise. Now I sing: My spirit takes to wing; I don't want you to grieve. I know it might be hard for you to understand. Remember and believe. Now I sing: My spirit takes to wing; I don't want you to grieve. Now I sing: My spirit takes to wing; I don't want you to grieve. Kerala and her twin sister Agiga (Lomani) made up this Death Song to share when they were just younglings. Since her skull injury and amnesia, Lomani has of course made up a new song. There may not be anyone living anymore who could sing this for Kerala. I found it in my documents while doing backup to googledocs and so seems fitting as the last writing about her I share.
  2. *excited applause for our winners!* YAY!!!
  3. A thread on the general discussion WoW forums. Merge RP-PvP Realms to 2 Options. https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20753415203
  4. Just a reminder to everyone that this list is a thing! Please correct me if I have one of your alts not listed under your main toon, or if your main has changed. If you play both sides relatively actively, please choose a main, but if you let me know your most active toon on the other side, I can add it on it's own line for the purpose of Masterlist calendar event invitations on the other faction.
  5. Cannot find Horde characters: Arcturnis, Saelyx, Sinlanna to invite. Updated google Masterlist to reflect players inactive. Current moderators: Awatu, Breygrah, Cobrak, Fayleah, Julilee, Kerala, Kexti, Khorvis, Ranadarus, Tahzani, Theira. Cannot find Alliance characters: Cavanaugh, Rorrek to invite. Updated google Masterlist to reflect players inactive. Current moderators: Jarington, Shizari, Tinox, Tuuroto. I tried to do the same thing for Alliance, but I'm well aware of my ignorance on blue side. Please if you do not have an invite on your MAIN, request one from a moderator. If you are a guildmaster or regularly a host community RP events and need to be upgraded to moderator status, please ask! I'll need your help to make Alliance side as up-to-date as possible
  6. Please see the in-game calendar. You will find a new event posted on March the 31st (since I got sick and forgot to put it on the 1st for this month). This event was made using the Masterlist to invite all known active roleplayer mains. Guild masters and community leaders have been upgraded to moderator status. Mods, the purpose of this list is to keep a dynamic invite list for the purpose of quick and easy event creation. To use this, simply select the Masterlist event. 1) Copy 2) Paste the event into the day you wish to host your own event. 3) Alter the title, time and details to suit your event, then Update your event. That's it! (I always set the event time as server time rather than local. It is helpful to also type the event's server time into the description to avoid confusion.) If you are a moderator, you can always invite a new active community member, however, this list is meant to invite MAIN CHARACTERS ONLY. Individuals have the option to create a personal event themselves in order to invite their own alts. This prevents our Masterlist from becoming contaminated with a million character names and helps us see at a glance how many active roleplayers we actually have. One invite per player. If you add a new active player or remove an inactive/MIA player- please notate the changes here so that our google Masterlist can also remain up to date. Please request here if you would like to host an event and do not already have moderator status- we'd be happy to upgrade you! After your event- please go through the list and set invite status to Confirmed for every player who actually attended. It only takes a minute. This will help the community to recognize active roleplayers and aid other mods when planning their own events to know the kind of attendance to expect if their event is at a similar day/time as yours.
  7. done!
  8. Great ideas so far!
  9. Dear RP community, Role-playing has its ups and downs. We're kind of down right now. I'd like to change that, but I am only one person with only one opinion and perspective on things. I'd like to broaden that view by asking for your help. In all of your specific experiences, what things, if any, can you identify as problems? I'm asking in the current sense. If you have chosen not to roleplay, why? Did you have to make a choice between RP and another aspect of the game, such as PvE/PvP or a grind for gear/rep/quest chain? If time is a factor please specify why if you can. Im looking for whether it's a real life obligation limiting overall playtime, event scheduling conflicts with other obligations like raiding or RBGs, etc. If there just isn't anything going on that interests you, it would be helpful to know those qualifications. Do you just not enjoy random tavern RP? Did you dislike something about an epic community-wide plot? If there are specific people or groups that put you off, what is it about them that rubs you the wrong way? Im looking for specific details if possible but without flaming. The purpose is not to sling dirt and call names, but to pinpoint problems so that thought can be dedicated as to how to fix them. If you are not sure how to express yourself in a kind and constructive way or without naming names, send me your rant in a private message, and I can paraphrase here for you, or I can nor post if you prefer and simply add it privately to my considerations if you like. I want open communication, even from you quiet ones. And if it is about me I want to know that too! I want to know what YOU think, not what you think about what someone else thinks. You are free to use any post prior to yours as a springboard for your own thoughts but please keep them aimed as answers to this initial query rather than offense/defense toward the comments of others. What do you see as wrong with our community, server, RP scene, whatever? What do you not want? (Alternatively, if you see no problems and are completely happy with everything as it is now, I would like to hear from you too! However, I ask that you also send your thoughts to me in the form of private message. This thread is specifically made to be a place to safely vent frustrations for the purpose of improvement.)
  10. Dear RP community, We seem to be in a lull now. Some people have left the game or gone chasing the greener pastures of other servers. Those people are gone. We remain, and yet even those of us still here are less active. Many people are busy with the flood of content in game and may be choosing that over roleplay. Some people are handling real life, having trouble logging into the game as much as they used to. Whatever the reasons, RP is happening less. Like many before me, I'd like that to change. I know I am not the only one missing RP. Some of you are too. Collectively WE want things to change, but WE might not know what to do to accomplish that. I might have some ideas. Here is what I want from you: Please list ideas you have or wishes for roleplay. Do you have an idea for an event? Please reply. Do you always wish such-and-such movie or book scene could have played out in WoW? Tell me please. Whether you want to see a race event or merchant bazaar, a circus, a charity thing, whatever, list the event concept. Maybe you always wanted to see a high noon 40 paces western duel or posse chase, or a sport played out over months like a Harry Potter quiditch season maybe, a Sherlock Holmes escapade, or any other book/ movie adaptation. Mention it! I'm not asking you to have a clue how to accomplish any idea that crosses your mind. No matter how quirky or bizarre or impossible you think it might be, spit it out anyway. I want to know. Leave the logistics and execution out of it. Now is not the time for worrying about any of that. The HOW comes later. Tell me WHAT you want.
  11. PART ELEVEN Kerala was not able to teach Keth how to navigate the Dream. She herself was untrained, and lacked the skills of a tutor. She led him to the Dreamseed in the hopes that the tree would help him as it had once guided her. Keth found the branch that had once been Kerala's living bracelet. As he studied the Dream and improved his abilities, Keth also guided the growth of the branch into a staff, it's reaching stems thrown back like falcon's wings. He intended it as a gift for his love. Kerala died before Keth learned to leave the Dream. The living staff remains as the Dreamseed once did, abandoned and waiting to fulfill an unknown potential.
  12. PART TEN Though Kerala was resourceful and clever, her efforts to stall the advancement of the sickness cursing her failed. Keth worked and researched and tested and he too found no cure. They were running out of time and options. It was an old Magram wise man who sent them to Maraudon. If any answers were to be found, perhaps it could be within those caverns. Keth breached the holy tomb and there he found a place where they could safely sleep. They Dreamed. Kerala's body slowed in deep hibernation. She took the untrained Keth with her. He was supposed to learn, then leave the Dream and continue searching for a cure while she slept. That, at least, was what was planned.

The Twisting Nether Gazette is a role play forum for characters on the RP-PVP servers Twisting Nether and Ravenholdt.  We have been active since November of 2005, a few months after the Twisting Nether server originally went live.  Our purpose is to provide a safe and inclusive environment where role players can meet and interact with each other, and, of course, post their amazing role play stories, art, bios, and journals.
