 Post subject: Guild Roleplay Event(s) Idea
PostPosted: Mon Sep 05, 2011 10:40 am 
Hey all,

I've noticed (mostly on Facebook) that there is some interest in RP. I thought we might as well do some guild RP so we get to know each others dear characters a bit :)

I have a few ideas to do something, I'd like to hear your opinion on it.

First of all, since The Elders is more of an OOC name and not really ICly, I tried to find something that would fit most characters, but still somehow guild related.

Therefore I came up with the idea of "The Elders Pilgrimage"
I'm not so fond of sit-around-the-campfire-RP so I like a change of scenery and something to happen.

The idea is to draw a pilgrim map with important places that everyone should have visited at least once in his ICly life. This would involve an IC journey in group by foot from let's say Orgrimmar to Ashenvale (Hellscream shrine) back through the barrens to the gates at Mulgore on to Ratchet to take the boat to the Eastern Kingdoms by which we continue all around the world. I'd like to pay visit to Northrend and Garadar in Outland too.
Of course this can't be done in one night so it would involve several nights spread over a long time. We could start one night, and if it's overall liked we could continue it the week after and so on.

The IC idea behind it would be to behold the terrors of the Cataclysm and visit the important places of the world, which every elder should at least have done.

Of course there would have to be a few guides to lead the troops in the right direction and provide protection for the little ones in hostile territories.

What do you think? If enough people are interested I could work this further out... let me know!

This sounds like an amazing idea to me. Hopefully it will take place at times that I can make, as I'd love to participate.

I also really like this idea! These days I'm super busy and as such I wouldn't be able to organize much or so, but if it's on an evening that I can make it, I'll be there! (and probably with Lahu)

I love the idea!! And I agree that ye olde sitting around the campfire gets stale quickly, so this sort of on foot travel is wonderful to keep things interesting. I'm 100% up for this!

Personally I love the idea, but there is one aspect of it that I'm concerned about. Please correct me if I have understood this wrong. You mentioned this:

"The idea is to draw a pilgrim map with important places that everyone should have visited at least once in his ICly life."

and later:

"The IC idea behind it would be to behold the terrors of the Cataclysm and visit the important places of the world, which every elder should at least have done."

What I'm concerned about is the "should have". Do you mean that it's a requirement for each member of the guild to do this at some point? If so I think that is against the premise of the guild - namely that there is no requirements - and I'm concerned that this could frighten away some potential members and indeed some current members.

If I have misunderstood your intent with this then perhaps it should be noted that it's voluntary for members to participate in this event. Just to be sure that everybody understands it in the right way.

I only bring this up to clarify your intent with this, nothing more. Like I said, I'm all for it personally. :D

Oh don't worry it's all voluntary! :)
I wrote this text this morning at work inbetween two assignments so don't take everything too literally. I was just trying to find possible IC reasons to have/attend such a guild event.
This is also by no means an official event text yet, just an idea for an event I need to work out some more :)

Yes I understood that as completely IC and depending on your character (so it's only you who decides, nobody else). For example, if you're a loyal orc, you might find it important to visit the Grom Hellscream memorial once to pay your respects.

Not to worry, I think it was just a misunderstanding in wording here. The way I read I read it is like this:

"The IC idea behind it would be to behold the terrors of the Cataclysm and visit the important places of the world which every elder has mostly likely visited at least once at some point in the past"

In other words I don't think that part of the event is to prepare in any way, or to go visiting places beforehand in order to qualify for the event or anything like that. To me, it simply means "Come have some fun and bring along a character that you've played a lot which has most likely been to these places before". Correct me if I'm wrong Ryce :).

And as always - all of our RP events, dungeon runs and raids are voluntary. So if you'd prefer doing what you'd normally do when the even takes place, feel absolutely free to - no-one will bat an eye :).

Oh and Ryce I deleted the extra topic in the Show and Tell section just to keep things clear. I hope that's ok :).

If you need someone on Alliance side..I'm sure Mr Jeplin could act out as a tour guide.
Word of warning though,highlights of the trip are bound to be tall tales and outright lies told by the guide and most probably several detours of a maritime nature.

Yes he still weeps over his sunken ship in Menethil harbour

Ah goody! :D

I'm glad that we got that out of the way, I just wanted to be certain. Problem eliminated! (since it was never really there) :wink:

*finding a spot in the line* When do the tour start? 8)

Good to see there's a lot of interest :)

I'm open for suggestions for interesting places that you'd want to visit on the tour. I'll try to implement them into the basic plan I currently have.

I have kind of a busy month so I'm not sure when I'll be able to let the event pass but it'll probably be a day in the week, probably a tuesday or a wednesday (since we have retro raids on monday and my agenda in weekends is very unpredictable!)

@Bram & @Knobble I meant by "should" that if you haven't seen it yet in your ICly life, that it's definitely worth visiting.
Just like I would say irl that you should visit New York once in your life, doesn't mean that you are obliged ;)
