One More Time: RP is a Celebration

By | November 2, 2011

  Tru fax:  If you play Daft Punk, Bika dances. I bring this point up not just because Daft Punk is in the air, but because–like dancing and celebrations–RP is something you do with other people.  When we RP, even in WoW, we are interacting with each other.  The only “bad” RP is where you […]

Another Post, Another Rebuttal

By | October 12, 2011

I’m going to be honest: I don’t get people who feel the need to come after or condescend RPers. For the past two days, the Breakfast Topic at WoW Insider has attempted to start a conversation about RP: What we do, how we do it, what mechanics we follow and why we follow those and […]

First, Finest, Last: Shad

By | September 29, 2011

  This week, we get the real deal on Shad, the official midwife of Feathermoon. Celesse was his first. He never counted Eurydice, because no matter how she plead, promised, or punished, he always refused her that final step. No, it was the woman he chose to be his wife with whom he finally joined […]

Affect And RP

By | November 18, 2010

One of the comments from the previous posts was on how to RP affect. A flat affect simply means that a person does not display emotions. For a visual example, may I present Mr. Steven Wright: This is not to say that Steven Wright has Antisocial Personality Disorder. All Steven is demonstrating is a flat […]

Psychopaths, Sociopaths and Antisocial Personality 3: Implications

By | November 17, 2010

Talking about Mental Health issues in WoW–be it for RP or how to work with your guildies–is akin to walking on eggshells. You have to tread carefully. Despite this concern, I’ve spent the past two days breaking down a few of the key traits of psychopathy and antisocial personality disorders for RP purposes. While I […]

Psychopath, Sociopath, Antisocial Personality: Work and RP

By | November 15, 2010

I need to preface this post with the statement that I am not (legally speaking) a Qualified Mental Health Professional in my state. I do have over eleven years of experience of working with juveniles with extremely difficult mental health behaviors; however, I cannot provide a diagnosis. My role is limited to providing treatment–in a […]

Unusual Pairings

By | November 9, 2010

Every time I write something–RP, an evaluation, fic or a paper–I notice a pairing that, until that particular bit of writing, did not make sense. While writing, I create associations between two topics that may, or may not, be related. When it comes to RP relationships, the same holds true: Some pairings, while not obvious […]

Nano Product #1

By | November 5, 2010

Like the art?  Buy some from Lore today!  I’m not following the Nano rules this year. I’m working on finishing a number of pieces that are well over due. Today is the first part of that fic: An early Bricu and Threnn story that I started last year. Bricu arrived at Threnn’s apartment at a […]

Apprentice, Journeyman and Grand Master Storytelling; Using Professions to Embellish RP

By | August 26, 2010

Today’s guest post is brought to us by Illithias, of US Feathermoon. Illi is a long time Feathermoonie and RPer–both table top and in WoW–and we’re lucky enough to have him write us a guest post–Bricu. Teothy leant over his workbench, tiny file in hand and tongue stuck out the corner of his mouth in […]

Where Do I Start?!

By | August 19, 2010

The WoW RP community is a rich, diverse and hella confusing place. We have blogs, twitter accounts, Nings and the official community forums. When we multiply these content sources with the age of WoW, we have way too many stories to keep track of. The history alone can make a new RPer wary of trying […]
