  1. Nadea just told me about this. I am so sorry for this tragic loss. Nouri was a bright point in many lives, and his passing leaves the world a little darker. While I don't fear death, the unknown quality of it always unsettled me. I've never felt more at peace with the idea until I saw this. I know it's probably not at all faithful to the source material, but for some reason...it definitely stilled a part of me that I didn't know needed it. I come back to it whenever this fearsome concept arises in my life again, and it continues to give me comfort. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWa_PqcbhSs And, in honor of Nouri: God be with you till we meet again; By His counsels guide, uphold you, With His sheep securely fold you; God be with you till we meet again. Till we meet, till we meet, Till we meet at Jesus’ feet; Till we meet, till we meet, God be with you till we meet again.
  2. Hi to Nadea and Keraph! Yes, those were definitely the good days, Ker...I still think back on that and feel a little bad that it didn't explode into massive funtimes like we hoped. But, hey, it was a worthy endeavor, at least. Barke! And Sanrin! I'd talk to you if you'd talk to me! zomg! D:
  3. - I found out Salad was a very angry Brit. - Sanrin sucked. Oh wait... ( <3 ) - Jacan got to be a point of interest in that storyline about a dwarf being resurrected (Turen?). Oh gawd his 40-something ass got clobbered ten ways to lol. - Alu doing "intel" on Lovely and her captors when she was captured by the Immortalis. He got to hang out under the overhang in Ambermill and try and decipher what they could be talking about only with Lovely's dialogue. And then run like hell when he thought someone was coming. - Weekly Duskwood patrols. What is it about Duskwood the Horde likes so much? Not even the Alliance likes that place... - When Xelthan, Kuro and I first rolled up on the server and we had our first semi-awkward RP in Dolanaar. Alu found out his love of cooking. - Pepperine putting Barke's hair in pigtails. Eee. - "Break a chair!" - The fountain in the Shrine of Elune. You know what I mean. And...why is Northface banned? D:

    Ah...sorry to bother everyone here again...but since this is the most active forum of dedicated RPers I know, I delicately toss my question to everyone. I've fallen in love with the Perl UI, but there's a slight problem I've noticed. I hadn't bothered reinstalling an RP mod since FlagRSP up and died on me a while back. I installed FlagRSP2 on my laptop and it doesn't work. I installed MyRolePlay and it works. Only problem is...with the Perl UI, I can't see the portrait button! I can't see anyone else's descriptions! Woe... So, the question I have is, if anyone else uses the Perl UI, did you figure out a way to also see people's descriptions? Is there another mod that doesn't rely on a portrait button that can still view descriptions from FlagRSP and others? If a dragonhawk leaves Silvermoon going ten miles an hour and a demonhound leaves Undercity five minutes later going twenty miles an hour, when they eventually impact, will it be in a shower of goo and purple sparkles, or just purple sparkles? I...yeah. Um. Any help or insight you can give is appreciated. ;
  5. I always assumed that the same means that the players use to return to their bodies, NPCs and mobs use to return to theirs, at least if they're humanoid. If they're animal mobs, I just assume more came from the bushes.
  6. It's a complete model. There are no armor pieces per se...the whole model just comes like that. Though, why they're using these old, somewhat ugly models is beyond me... And those kids are cute.
  7. Y'know, I guess I just haven't read up on my stuff well enough...but I didn't know for certain if the horde and alliance are supposed to work together in these instances. But the last screenshot shows a human and an undead grouped together. Unless one is wearing a clever disguise? I dearly hope it's not the latter...cause if we're able to work together, maybe that means the language barrier will be gone as well. Edit: Nevermind, it's a disguise. I spy Cannibalize and WotF on those action bars. Sigh.
  8. I figured that was the only one, since Arthas raised that dragon specifically in another Arthas-esque twist of irony. I could be wrong, though.
  9. Sounds like a catch-all to me.
  10. Are you a Vampire D guy? Or a completely, 100% different person? Or Manus? Good lawd, stick a character to live in already, you're making my head hurt.
  11. Only then did Alexstrasza rise before him, the terrible nemesis. She gazed at Deathwing, still in part with pity, and said, "Life is my Aspect, dark one, and I, like all mothers, know both the pain and wonder that entails! For the past several years, I have watched my children be raised as instruments of war, slaughtered if they proved insufficient or too willful! I have lived knowing that so many died that I could do nothing for!" "Your words mean nothing to me," Deathwing roared ... "Nothing!" "No, they likely do not...which is why I shall let you experience firsthand all that I have suffered..." And she did just that. Against any other attack, even the nightmares of Ysera, Deathwing could summon some defense, but against Alexstrasza's he had no weapon upon which to draw. She attacked with pain, but her pain. She dealt not with agony as he knew it, but with that of a loving mother who suffered with each child torn from her, with each child turned into something terrible. Which each child who perished. "You will go through all I have gone through, dark one. Let us see if you fare any better than I did." But Deathwing had no experience in such suffering. It tore at him where pain of vicious talons or ripping teeth could not, for it tore at him in his very being. The most terrible of dragons screamed as none had ever heard a dragon scream before. --- Day of the Dragon, pgs. 366-367 Before that, the Demon Soul wasn't destroyed yet, and they had a little smacktalk before the two of them fought each other "hand to hand", but this seemed the most vicious example of what the Great Aspects did to Deathwing during the attack on Grim Batol. As far as good ol' Deathwing having the hots for her, it's possible. She seemed to have a lot of dragons that doted on her.
  12. Chrommie(mmy?) appears in the form of a gnome. Onyxia and Nefarian appear as humans. I remember at one point going "omg there's so many dragons in this game" but now I can't remember the NPCs I was referring to. :T Oh, and there was one dragon in Silithus that appeared as a night elf female. I don't know if she's still in the game, though, it was pre-Silithus-fixering.
  13. Uh...isn't that the point? That's why you do a tank rotation....tell the MT to suck it up and lrn2play. You can't heal through a BA. And srsly, Vael's a fast, hard fight. I'd imagine it doesn't go much longer than a minute and a half, but it's been a bit since I fought his emo ass. As far as the RP griefing goes, tell them there's plenty of 60s on the server, no one is irreplaceable, and if they follow you around to be a shit, they're gone, period. Nobody follows them around when they raid and heckle them, so why should they even be given the chance to do the same when you're doing something you like to do in game?
  14. You got White Wolf in my Warcraft! You got Warcraft in my White Wolf! The result is a spoogey, bitter kind of peanut butter cup. Made with DARK CHOCOLATE. Cause dark chocolate is way more emo than milk chocolate.
  15. Day of the Dragon is the book you're looking for, methinks. And Deathwing never directly controlled Nekros, the head orc handler guy, but he was in league with Kryll, a goblin that Nekros listened to. Here's the rundown on the whole story involving Grim Batol, the Demon Soul, and Deathwing. Quoted from here, since they say it more coherently: Rhonin, a mage of the Kirin Tor, was sent to free Alexstrasza from her imprisonment in Grim Batol. He had a high elf ranger companion named Vereesa, and later was joined by an Aerie Peak dwarf named Falstad (who is actually in the game). At this time, Nekros controls the Demon Soul, and uses it to force Alexstrasza to do his bidding (namely, make more eggs). Rhonin notes that while Nekros uses this device, he obviously has no idea the true power it commands. During the journey to Grim Batol, Rhonin is separated from the others by Deathwing. Deathwing gives him a magical pendant that allows Deathwing to see through Rhonin's eyes as well as speak in his mind. It also allows Deathwing to take control over Rhonin's body if he wishes. So Deathwing leads Rhonin into Grim Batol (in fact, if Deathwing hadn't helped, Rhonin probably would have never gotten there). Nekros was a paranoid orc. Signs of a feint attack from a distant area (I believe it was the west? I can't remember), along with the capture of Rhonin who he believed to be a spy, spurred Nekros to believe that he had to move the brood as well as Alexstrasza since he couldn't let his warchief down again. Rhonin was saved by his companions, and the orcs began their laborous trek. Krasus, Rhonin's mentor in the Kirin Tor, actually turned out to be Alexstrasza's companion, Korialstrasz. While Rhonin was traveling to Grim Batol, Krasus met with the Great Aspects, pleading with them to help him free his beloved queen. All turned him away in one way or another. The caravan had just begun when Deathwing arrived, fully intending to take advantage of their vulnerable position to finish off his hated enemy, and also steal her eggs to create a new dragonflight. Krasus tried to fight Deathwing off (who had already taken some eggs), but was badly wounded. The Great Aspects then appeared and did battle with Deathwing, and while Rhonin fought with Nekros for the Demon Soul, Alexstrasza broke free of her binds and slayed Nekros. Rhonin then used the scale in the necklace given to him by Deathwing to cut open the Demon Soul, and used a spell to direct the dragons' energies back to them. The Aspects, now fully restored, were able to send Deathwing packing. Though I don't think an official Blizzard word has been given on Grim Batol, it appears that the dragons that are there are remnants of the children Alexstrasza was forced to bear, none capable of understanding what they truly are. Feel free to fix what errors I made, I read Day of the Dragon in like two days, and it was a while ago. I've left out a lot of details. :T
