Twisting Nether RP Reunion


Recommended Posts

I wish I had caught this when it happened. Sadly I never swing by here. :(

anyways...

Main RP Toon: that's a good question, its been so long since I did it. But ironically enough I continue to make characters and day dream about their "story" as I quest lmao

Horde Or Alliance? Both

Guild: I was in Scarlet Dawn before I retired from active playing. They transferred and now I just sub a month or 2 every so often and play casually before taking the next break.

What was your favorite RP event or storyline? I miss the Ironforge Regiment meetings in the throne room tbh. I still remember getting invited to the guild... I was told to wait outside the thrown room and wait till the meeting was over and come join the officers at the bar.

Who is someone that you used to RP with and haven't heard from in a long time, that you miss the most? Some of the officers from IFR. Livingstone is the only one I can remember now. Him and I actually had a friendship outside of RP back in vanilla and early TBC (before my horde days). I think Odessa was another. IDK if she was a real female irl (the world may never know...) but "she" helped me understand the whole dwarf RP thing in IFR. Without her constructive criticism and hand holding Cedes would have been a lost cause and probably another stereotypical PVP player.

Share a screenshot from an RP you enjoyed: Livingstone and I used to send "fresh meat" into the valley to train them in hand-to-hand combat against the horde. Sometimes we could even the odds and the Regiment would defend the general with honor... other times this would happen. Always a surprise!

Instead of throwing rice or confetti, we just killed all the guests.

Holy crap son, I have 2520 posts here?!

I'm really just here 'cause FFXIV's uber patch day is taking tooooooo long and I noticed I had a PM.

Horde Or Alliance? Horde

Guild: The Raven Cross

What was your favorite RP event or storyline? The Onyx Sun event with Broxigan and First Legion was an absolute blast. The Battle for Stonetalon was a kickass event as well.

Who is someone that you used to RP with and haven't heard from in a long time, that you miss the most? Hm... I kept in touch with many of my best friends. But I'd have to say someone I haven't heard from in a long time that I wouldn't mind talking to again is Anorah. Somehow, we lost touch. :(

*Flails* Really?? I don't think my carpal tunnel can hold up long enough for me to even BEGIN referencing the history of my time slithering around Twisting Nether. Phbbbbbbbtttt.. Ok I'll try. I know I will leave things out - the timeline stretched longer than four years, so that's like.. an entire high school episode worth of memories. You realize this, right?! Gosh.. where to start. Template to the rescue.

Main RP Toon: Alliance: Ranaynne, Jaskila, Lilyonna, Rylanna, Pyriol.. (Clearly I need to look at some screen shots to remind me of names I've forgotten >.) Horde side: Jespia, Ryiaka.. (Again with the memory)

Horde Or Alliance? Both, but primarily Alliance

Guild: Stormwind Royal Cavalry, Sanguinis Nobilis, Forge, Dusk Watch, Dragonhawk Brigade, Redblade Corsairs, Fabled Order, Dunamis, Invictus Sanctum, Blades of Fortune, The Seventy Third, and several more..

What was your favorite RP event or storyline? There was an insane amount of amazing roleplay that I was able to be involved in. In the old, early EARLY days of Thomas and SWRC there were many PvP events - excursions to Tarren Mill, the Southshore battles, the marches through STV .. I remember being SO happy to finally get my Paladin charger - in fact getting power leveled so I could because he wanted to promote me to Lieutenant and I had to have it due to a random guild requirement (lol) - Let's see - Dramatic RP with Obraonain (who was in the Fabled Order) and Ranaynne.. silly but fun - Fabled Order and SWRC always had a rivalry sort of this - Noxtrael and Thomas - it was hilarious, I tried to exploit it in a storyline, Necroxis got involved - that was a blast. Huge storyline - I was a Mary Sue sometimes, meh - it was early RP times on the server and on WoW for me. Let's see - ridiculous lore stretching storyline with Ranaynne but had some hella good RP with Saarvon, Ivanzephyr (Nexy), Anuari, Sabrathan - My character made Tiraline crazy. I get it; I didn't see at the time why she couldn't move past it - but SO water under the bridge at this point. Later on had such good times with extensions of that storyline - I played the same toon for like - three years consistently, used a ton of alts to further my storyline, made them all overlap - it got almost too big, so many people from so many guilds involved.

Eventually settled in at Dusk Watch, such fantastic memories - with Omy, Daigil, Araa, Cat, the whole gang - the Raven Cross pvp battles were amazing - loved Yak - my character was such a mouthy little brat. The whole plague/escort quest storyline in Dusk Watch that still has screenies up on the recruiting thread - That was one of my favorites, was lucky to get a lot of support from Omy and the gang and have a really great guild storyline out of it. Erm - Had some good times horde side with Jespia, dug the pvp from that side of the fence - then my resurrection as Rylanna and the Blades of Fortune and writing for the paper someone created on here - getting my Pyriol storyline going and having amazing tasty RP with the Redblade Corsairs and Tuuroto - Life got to me and my time on WoW dwindled, I went long inactive and just couldn't find a way to get back 'into' the storyline I'd had going - I thought I could finish up the Pyriol thing but just didn't manage to :( Loved LOVED the RP and support I got from so many of you on that final storyline! Hopefully one day I can pick it back up and give it a deserving finish and some closure for poor Tuuroto! <3

Who is someone that you used to RP with and haven't heard from in a long time, that you miss the most? I miss Tuuroto!! I have managed to stay in touch with a lot of my old RP buddies - miss Omy.. but most recently out of folks I used to RP with I just keep missing that zany draenei!

Share a screenshot from an RP you enjoyed: Derp.. there's a ton of them. I'll post this up another time.

What is something you do not miss about Twisting Nether? So here's the thing - I had some GREAT, great times on Twisting Nether. This site is amazing - If anything the fact that there is not a "Gazette" for every RP server is one of the things that makes me the saddest! I did move on to another server - I'm on Wrymrest Accord. I got tired of 'fighting the good fight' to create storylines when there were SO few people who wanted to participate. I tried with my "Fresh start" guild with Blades of Fortune - and maybe it would have taken off if I hadn't gotten busy in real life. People seemed to really like the events that I created - the Storytelling contest, the Pet Parade, etc. Like many of you, I saw my community grow smaller and smaller - Not only did I realize I'd given far too much of my life to a game, I also realized that my view of the people around me had become rather - narrow. It got to where I felt like I knew the bulk of the players on Alliance side, and there were a lot of them I simply could not stand. I KNOW this went the other way, too - I am NOT a perfect person, and I know I offended some people during my time on TN due to breach of lore or for (random other reason).

One of the things that I got SO sick of though was the cattiness - the judging behavior, the cliques, the accusations of 'impropriety' - It was honestly ridiculous. People loved to toss accusations of 'ERP' around like a bunch of twelve year old boys - and it just got so childish. Even if I, or others had gone down that path - I don't honestly see why anyone would have given a crap as long as it wasn't done in such a way that minors had to be exposed to or whatever. I didn't, but I guess some people just can't wrap their heads around female characters having a lot of male friends? Pretty stupid, but whatever. People also got SO petty about PvP - I got caught up in it sometimes, too - and I got tired of seeing the PvP aspect exploited all the time. I loved PvP - but it got really old when people couldn't both PvP AND remember that it was a game. You know what I'm talking about - people ganking on the ships, during load screens at the Tram, etc. Basically for me, what happened - is the immersion was lost! I got to know too many players as people and they got to know me as a player and not as my characters, and the roleplay suffered.

Why do I even mention this? Hindsight!! We had a great community on Twisting Nether, and many of us have found recreations (to a lesser degree) of that community elsewhere (if we still play). Please - take heed, and learn from our past mistakes - tearing down fellow players will NOT help in the long run. Keep your immersion alive - I suggest NOT finding out, if possible, which all characters a given player is playing. Let yourself keep that mystery of meeting a character for a character - not recreating the same storyline over and over with different faces.

Who is someone that you used to RP with and haven't heard from in a long time, that you miss the most? CHINGASO!

(OK, you asked for it...)

Someone mention Chingaso name? Hm, was crazy elf ride into Orgrimmar for give Chingaso rum...

Main RP Toon: Chingaso, Gorvena (OMIGAWD!), Belicosa

Horde Or Alliance? Psh...please...

Guild: Currently in Semi Serious

What was your favorite RP event or storyline? This one is hard. The impromptu stuff with Lelenia was great. The Venture Company (server) Nelf sisters story that I did with Vilmah is something I am trying to "de-wow" and expand into a novel. But overall, the Chingaso/Ashagga story line was the most epic, culminating in the spoiled wedding that was broken up by Orugasa (I was actually dual boxing that night because Gasa was out of town) that caught absolutely everyone there except for Ashagga flat-footed (because we worked it out ahead of time). And countless IC raids with the Grim. IC guild chat is genius. I tried it in DHB and people bitched...

Who is someone that you used to RP with and haven't heard from in a long time, that you miss the most? Chaindog/Jubi, Lelenia, Ashagga, Vilmah, and several players in the Grim.

Now for the rest (I promise, no Zust wall of text). Gasa and I (on Belicosa, Goroka my rogue and Urso my druid...sometimes on Zazaine my Warlock...I have 5 horde 90's and as of last night a 90 Ally, achievement whore much?) are raiding progression-based with family and friends (so we are a bit behind the curve, working on Spoils). I treasure my time in the Grim and wish I could rebuild some burnt bridges, but that probably won't happen. We rode Dragonhawk Brigade until the end, then just started looking for good raiding guilds. Raided with Ouroboros until they all quit, then moved to Semi Serious. Currently considering rolling new toons on Area 52, pre-ordering the xpac and boosting them to 90 to raid there (at least 6 of our 10-man team). Chingaso and Gorvena have been relegated to back-burner status, although they are likely to pop up at the most inappropriate moments...

Share a screenshot from an RP you enjoyed: Too many computers ago, but I do have one where Orugasa has the title "Slayer of Stupid, Incompetent and Disappointing Minions." I just can't remember how to link it *drools into oxygen line*

Came by to look around, found a PM and now here I am.

Main RP Toons:

Aliss Dusksinger

Horde Or Alliance?

Alliance

Guild:

Invictus Sanctum

What was your favorite RP event or storyline?

The Weaver's storyline was the most fun I've ever had in RP and I wish I could do something like that again. It's impossible without just the right community to work with--and tons of time to invest in set up.

Who is someone that you used to RP with and haven't heard from in a long time, that you miss the most?

Someones, really. I think of people a lot, lately. Annulet, Ysengrim, Vindliah, Duroxas, Secus, Fennore, Shaii, Moonjade, Aiyan, Tuuroto, Talgriv, Branngas, SO MANY AWESOME PEOPLE. I can't even name them all.

I haven't even used my authenticator in so long, I lent it to a friend who never checked out the accounts. Now I'm working on writing and graphic design. Wrote an illegal, unpublishable novel that I'm secretly distributing on the streets of Portland. All the while I think of the things I learned here about how to write, how to make characters that people care about and how to tell a story.

*HUG*

Horde Or Alliance:

Alliance

Guild:

That One Kiwi Guild and then Scarlet March

Favorite RP event or storyline:

I don't remember, I wasn't as cool or involved as everyone else. I was just there, derping in the background, insignificant and ignorant to the going-ons of anything and everything. But those joint raids we (Scarlets and Kiwis) did into Zul'Garub were cool because I got a huge fucking sword out of it, and met some cool people.

Someone that you used to RP with and haven't heard from in a long time, that you miss the most:

Sibella. :< Aaaaand Kassidy.

Daala

Horde Or Alliance:

Horde

Guild:

The Grim comes to mind. And Sanctuary and Infection. And The Twisting Nether Raiders, though that was more of a co-op and less of an official guild.

Favorite RP event or storyline:

Rituals with Snowfeather, before all that durn drama.

Someone that you used to RP with and haven't heard from in a long time, that you miss the most:

Snowfeather. Lovely. Nadea. Nissi. Okhu. Rhowen. Clys. Danlily. Kurohane. Keraph. Vilmah. Zusteakai. And quite a few others.

Main RP Toon: Healion, Old Paladin!

Horde Or Alliance? Alliance.

Guild: The Ironblade Mercenaries, The Dark Mercenaries, Invictus Sanctum, and quite a few more that I have forgotten.

What was your favorite RP event or storyline? I just enjoyed back when Healion ran a tavern! Waaaay back in like...2005? I think. Or some such!

Who is someone that you used to RP with and haven't heard from in a long time, that you miss the most? Nycte, Groew, Angeni, Vivionsho, Rugus, Shandal, Moonjade....and the list goes on and on and oooon!

I did move one of my characters back to Twisting Nether though. For old times sakes.

I forgot that I also had Healion as an undead rogue here and there. Think I was in a guild with Vilmah as a leader.

Main RP Toon: Grumak (aka Punnishment in the earlier days before he ever told anyone his real name)

Horde was where he started, but became Neutral after meeting Sowell Spiritrock and hearing his ideas about the Steemwheedle Cartel. Grumak will ever-after be neutral in the race war.

Guild: Cartel Enforcers, in fact Grumak was one of the leaders for a significant period of time and I feel partially responsible for the ultimate downfall of the guild. It may have happened eventually anyway, but I may have sped it's demise and, for that, I am ever regretful.

As for favorite storylines and events...SO many. Weekly gatherings of the Cartel in our random "You shouldn't be able to get there" places where we had many dueling sessions and various events hosted for other guilds. The occasional rigging of the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza as well as taking control of the Boat between Ratchet and Booty Bay. Of course, the stalking...and killing...of anyone that caused harm to the spirit of RP on Twisting Nether was always nicely done in story form thanks to our wonderful group of creative thinkers.

Who do I miss? That is a tough list to write as there were SO many great people I interacted with. Just about everyone from SMU, but Sowell, Castellano, Thalarios, Kyllavertin, Irontoe (who is apparently banned?)...is a start, but not nearly a fraction of those I have missed.

Grumak is back, come find me, I miss you guys.
