  1. Hi there! So this has the potential to be a very interesting event. My question to you is the same as it has been for all the really 'big' storylines generated around here: Since these are clearly not canon, are you planning a means to allow superficial participation in your effort, without a character having to be completely insane not to believe what is going on in your plotline? For instance, are the events that trigger investigation into these conspiracies going to be isolated enough that a newcomer walking onto the scene can scoff ICly at what they're being told, without coming off as being in denial? (it's the difference between an isolated incident and rumors vs. an incident that you either have to accept ICly or ignore OOCly.) Thanks!

    <p>To answer your question, you are absolutely correct - I was informed that the RP was of a nature that I, as a player, was not going to be comfortable with. I was informed of it when Skylah approached the Grim with an opportunity for a kidnapping plotline, and I just needed that one word to know that I wasn't going to want to participate.</p>

    <p>I don't believe that the Grim should kidnap people. We're "peace through annihilation", not "peace through catch-and-release" (because 99 out of 100 kidnappings are going to end with the kidnappee either escaping or being rescued. Which really makes it look like we don't have our shit together that we can't even kill/keep tabs on one damn person.)</p>

    <p>The RP that it's generated has been great, and great for the community. But it's just not my cuppa tea.</p>

  3. I'm also not a frequent poster here, but this thread is a new varnish on an old debate. Why did you decide that you didn't want to be a part of the plotline? (It's a rhetorical question, because I assume you were somehow informed that the RP was going to be of a nature that you, as a player, were not going to be comfortable with) From what I can see, this is the meat of the matter that some folks appear to be dancing all around. If people are not receiving adequate warning that a plotline may/will involve content that they as players would rather not be a part of, then the plot creator is not giving them a reasonable chance to say 'no thanks'. It doesn't take 'full disclosure' of a plotline to say "We expect that there may be a point where the RP in this plotline will become extremely mature." An even more reasonable plot-creator might narrow it down to a specific session or two where they expect things to become more intense, thus giving participants an opportunity to invent believable reasons for their otherwise involved characters to not be present. If a plot requires certain characters in order to fly, and/or characters become central to the story, by golly The Plot Masters should be communicating with them up to and all throughout extreme RP of any sort to make sure they're okay with what is happening both ICly and OOCly. Granted, as with most things it's a fine line between 'Freedom' and 'Freedumb', but it's one that can be fairly easily marked with some forethought and courtesy.
  4. ((Cross-posting from RH Sanctum Hello folks! I was pointed to a thread over on the Emerald Dream forums. The campaign and walk-up RP hubs are all in CRZ areas, so anyone from any of our shared servers is welcomed to become involved. Looks like VeCo has just thrown a hat into the ring. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/19891109020 ))
  5. I think we should at least try to decide if this is going Alliance-only. I know that Horde folks can't join the channel from a horde toon, but there's nothing to say they couldn't join the channel to RP from an ally alt as their horde toon. If the setting is firmly in Alliance territory, then it may be fair to assume that "No Hordz Alloud". And I agree that the correlated physical location is important as well. People like to have places they can dress-up and GO to and see/be seen. I've seen several suggestions (including my own) and there are no changes to the poll, so I'm not sure whether that will be updated or not. Taverns on the whole are easier, because they are often near flight points and similar things, so that people are not as limited in going to the physical site based on their level etc. I'll throw in Shattrath as another option, because Warlords. Also, sorting the name out sooner than later is better. The longer people use /join Hearthstone, the harder it will be to change it. (And if that's the plan, then I'm on to you. ) If the Hearthstone guild people want to step forward and offer an opinion officially, I encourage them to do so. They are easy enough to get in touch with if they're not already reading these posts. I, for one, am reluctant to accept silence as consent. So if it will make things cleaner, I can contact them and see if they will let us know what they prefer.
  6. My concerns are accessibility and troll control. If we ensure that the location is in a contested zone, we can kill trolls at-will. Unfortunately, horde could also grief at will too. A close zone like Lakeshire or Darkshire would be a likely location. Or a goblin town if we wanted beefier protectors. Edit: to clarify, I understand that the channel wouldn't have any limitations... but at the same time people enjoy meeting face to face if possible. I'm kind of leaning toward Goblin towns, simply because it would allow friendly x-faction RPers to interact too, as well as killing off griefers. Edit 2: Also, shouldn't the Hearthstone guild get the final say in this? Either that or we call it something else?
