    To echo the sentiment, sure, why not. It's an old song but a new dance.

    ghirular x got a reaction from Maxima in wp/sbg dev ppl   
    Thanks for sharing!
     
    Back in my DnD PnP days, I always thought Elves were pretty much the suck. Mostly due to the guys I played with. They were really namby pampy is probably the polite thing to say. Mostly to piss them off, I made a Dark Elf and would always attack them instead of the mobs. Kind of found my calling, being the Anti-Elf and Bad guy.
     
    Fast forward to my first time logging into Shadowbane and making my first character. There were some very interesting choices and options available for race but something drew me to the Irekei. They just sounded pretty bad ass and hateful to me. Having good memories of being an Anti-Elf, made being an Irekei seem a natural fit.
     
    My first time in Khar was almost a spiritual experience. The music, the architecture, it felt like coming home in a wierd way. Especially since it was my first time. I had to run and check every tent. Ran around the whole wall. Was even lurking behind the big wall rugs in the bank.
     
    No other zone had ever given me the same feeling like the desert had.
     
    One building in Khar changed my life so much that I just have to share. This was where I ran into Tuvesh The Sun Dancer.
     
    Also, the story of Khar'ubar was what inspired me to use the name Vrek. For those who don't know Irekei, Vrek means Traitor.
     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     
    P.S.
     
    Is there a way to add Previews? If I knew how I would add them to these images.

    Haven't enjoyed PVP in any other game since. Totally ruined my life until I heard of Crowfall.

    If SB was my wife and life partner, she's dead to me now.

    Her sister IS looking kinda cute, though....

    Hail and well met!

    New game. New Lore. New possibilities.

    Am not sure where things are heading but am looking to find others who are up for new and different experiences.

    What games we played before are in the past. SB, Wiz101, DF, EVE, etc. Matters not to me.

    What should and shall matter is having fun, killing and "being" yourself.

    Besides Pen and Paper Dungeons and Dragons, have RPed in Anarchy Online, Earth and Beyond, EVE, Shadowbane, Star Wars Galaxies (Pre-CU), Fallen Earth, Star Trek Online, Planetside 2, War Thunder, DC Universe Online, and Star Wars The Old Republic.

    Tried other games but didn't stick around long enough to RP.

    Whether we start a new guild or just a circle of friendship, am down to meet other like-minded Role-Players.

    I am not worried and neither should you.
     
    Think most Shadowbane players want something different and new AND just as deadly as Shadowbane, if not more so.
     
    A spiritual successor is what most want and from the sounds of things so far, what we shall get. Here's to faith and trust!

    ghirular x got a reaction from ellie in On the subject of open PVP   
    [Edit: Meant to quote blaze duskdreamer]

    Talking about real life death threats is kinda off-topic and has no bearing on PVP in Crowfall?

    As for threatening to quit the game if it has PVP is kinda immature, imo... even if you are retired and older as you say. Not trying to get all up in your kitchen over this but just sharing my thoughts as a real life grandparent and former soldier.

    Don't like PVP, that's understandable. I hate PVE raiding so each to their own.

    Don't like a game, don't play and/or support it.

    In closing, I do wish you would stay around and see where things go and even give PVP a try. Maybe with the right crowd, you might like it?

    If it will make a difference, I welcome you to hang out with me, sometime (in game when we can). We can go out and roll some people and have fun while doing it.

    ghirular x got a reaction from StormShadow in Will there be a Thief Class? At least hoping =D   
    Good point.
     
    With great power and awesomeness comes nerfs and handicaps.
     
    SB thieves were pretty squishy at times. Especially, Steal Thieves. The problem was catching them first.
     
    Combat Thieves were a bit more tankier.
     
    To be honest, though, no matter what build used, skill (player-based) was always the greatest determinance of what set one thief above others.
     
    Also, personal measure of success mattered, too. Some people thought stealing from full-groups and robbing them blind for hours was the awesome. Some, it was spending a lot of time sneaking into guarded areas/ cities and taking out a high-profile target. Some rolled groups and just destroyed them with their combat abilities.
     
    What I really hope for is the freedom to find our own play-style then be effective in it.

    Yeah, count me in.

    Stealing was fun and all but let's leave some room for Combat Thieves, too!

    ghirular x got a reaction from doc gonzo in On the subject of open PVP   
    In Shadowbane, I killed (or tried my hardest to kill) any one who was not Irekei. Was following Irekei Lore.

    That was all the reason I ever needed. Never got bored. Never got tired.

    Would stil be doing it now if I could... but I can't and that sucks.

    Not everyone needs a carrot but meaningful conflict is nice and appreciated, as is conflict resolution.

    More PVE elements will not help PVP flourish. More player/ guild created things to gain/ lose. The more carrots the better.

    Espionage mechanics and tools, economic disruption, and even more varied modes of combat (land and sea) could also help to keep things interesting.

    Agree with a lot of what you are saying. Just wanted to challenge the assertion of PVP for PVP's sake. I could kill firks all day, just because. Never boring and always fun for me ( but not everyone will agree and I do understand why).

    Moar PVP! Moar reasons to PVP!

    I remember, in almost every game I have tried/ played, the same complainers threatening to quit, crying for nerfs, holding their breath, having tantrums and the like until they got their poorly made socksty little ways.
     
    How many games have these babies ruined? I'd rather we nip that poorly made socks in the bud, per se. Free speech and over-entitlement be damned.
     
    I just wanna kill someone and take their poorly made socks for all the whining they do.

    Thanks to all for reading and posting.

    Due to recent developments, looks like I won't be RPing in this game nor even playing it.

    Was looking forward to doing so but hey.

    Stuff happens.

    Take care, good luck, and happy hunting!

    At the site I was modding at it, it would ultimately depend on which mod took the report. If it was clearly malicious intent, post edited and warning issued. If it wasn't, an edit and no warning issued. Most of the mods would let most things go with just an edit, but sometimes a few would get over zealous and issue a warning for something minuscule.
