Roleplaying / rp or power gaming ?
« on: August 01, 2009, 08:20:11 pm »
I just reread
And i couldn't help but again notice something .

When talking about Weapon Master , each time people will throw in that it's useless to take more then 7 levels in it for the bonus you will get after 7 levels is not worth it .

It always gives me an strange feeling , because to me only taking the 7 levels to gain the extras and then leave the class seems on the border of power gaming .

A character that trains to become one with its weapon , suddenly giving up a part off that training to learn new things somehow doesn't seems right to me .

Then again , that is just my personal opinion so i was wondering what others think off it .

Rumour Has It / Rumors spread of a death
« on: November 23, 2008, 03:33:29 am »
In Inn's and craft halls rumors start to spread of the loss of life off one of the best crafters . It is said that one that was faithful to his idea of his believe has fallen protecting others .

// relates to this cdt entry  :

** a pair off adventurers arrive at 180 Haven , they carry the remains off a full plate marked with Rofirein signs . Their faces are somber as they hesitate to knock on the door . Finally one reaches over and knocks . As the door is opened , they step back after putting the remains off the full plate on the ground . " We come with sad tidings M'Lady " they look to Solarina " The man leading us down to diamonds , adamantium and kobalt ...the man known as Barion Firesteed ....* he looks down * ...he fell protecting us ...and never returned . We went to the stone we know he was bound ..but his soul never returned to claim his body ...*he sighs deep * ...we are sorry Miss "

To those responsible :

If i catch you killing the cows and chickens in my home-town , I'll personally bring you to trial and ask for the highest possible sentence .

You are killing off means that supply food and milk to the community and i see that as a murder attempt .

If i catch you and you fight being brought to justice , then i will use force .

Barion Firesteed .

// for some time now , someone is killing off the animals .
// not sure if that is to make feeding 1 easier , but its annoying and against the rules .
// please stop killing them .( that also goes for killing off 1 cow to make feeding for milk easier ).

NWN Ideas, Suggestions, Requests / Reflections
« on: December 30, 2007, 09:13:59 am »
I have a question on reflections .

When you die , you get a certain amount off reflections you have to sit out ( in my case 45 i think )

When you log and wait 10 RL hours , one reflection remains to be waited out .

IF however you log in after lets say 9 hours RL , you must wait out the remaining reflections that you had when logging off .

Theoreticly this means that if you log in 1 minute early due to wrong remembering the time you logged of ,you're ^^^^^^ and need to sit it out if you cant reach your stone .

Is it possible to do anything about this ?

Trade and Market Hall / looking for ......
« on: October 28, 2007, 05:10:05 am »
I am looking for adamantium and kobalt ore .

I can offer services or true for them .

Services i could offer are : everything you need from the tinkering device , toolbox or forge .

With-out failure i can make every weapon except dwarven war axes or mithril weapons .

With-out failure i can melt most off your metals .

With some chance off failure i can make most armors or shields .

If interested , contact Barion Firesteed .

//due to very strange and unexplainable lag , i cant walk the world and due to the fact that i slowly want to re-introduce Barion to the world i thought this would be a nice way to show that he ain't dead ( yet )

Just for Fun / explanation off life
« on: September 05, 2007, 12:36:42 pm »
When God created the dog he said: "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years."

The dog said: "That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?"

So God agreed.

When God created the monkey he said: "Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span."

The monkey said: "Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the dog did?"

And God agreed.

When God created the cow he said: "You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family For this, I will give you a life span of sixty Years."

The cow said: "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?"

And God agreed again.

When God created man he said: "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years."

But man said: "Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?"

"Okay," said God, "You asked for it."

So that is why for our first twenty years we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you.

General Discussion / For those wondering
« on: June 11, 2007, 02:14:03 pm »
For those wondering, i have decided that most off my time is better used somewhere else.
Off the three years i have played here till now , i fully enjoyed the first two .

Due to ( in my eyes ) ic and ooc actions off some ( and things i have written and the way i handled certain things that probably seemed wrong in the eyes off others ) my fun on this world has diminished to point -nearly- zero.

My irritation points ranging from ic deliberate trying to make my char look bad by using emotes ( cant react to those ) to put my character down in front off other players , from meta-gaming out off my journals , to ooc tells to people playing with my char telling that they better leave my char alone because "You are running with the wrong crowd now ".

Using one of the favorite lines you get when complaining : " Since there is no proof we cant do a thing about it "

I will not be coming to any quests that i was on and i would like to advice the dm's that are running quests that i was part off over the years , to stop ignoring characters that are not played by your friends .

The character i have created will pop on from time to time ( if not banned )to work for the guild he is a member off and to finish what is started in my rp and my cdt.

To the 10 % or so that still treats me and my character normally : see you from time to time in game .

To the 30% that i didn't have the privilege to rp with : Keep doing what you like and have fun.

To the rest : Seems finally even i , as last off a group , are giving up and giving in . I hope the treatment that you have dished out will not be returned to you or your characters and that you all are glad that finally the last that was working on your nerves is slowly going to disappear from this world.

I will be in game a few days a week ( if not banned ) and during those times i will be available for rp with those that i like to rp with and will completely ignore those that are for me the cause ( s ) that are driving me away.

Disclaimer: i have made sure to refrain from naming people , but if people feel that this is about them *shrugs* they are probably right .The percentages i use may be off and only are about the people on line in my playing times and more show the feeling i have , then are actual calculated percentages.

( if this post is reason to ban me : i would like to request 1 ) that the house in haven i posses will be turned over to scifibarbie for the character Abigail Firesteed that she will create soon. 2 ) my house in Prantz to be sold  and the funds gotten from it to be donated to a fund that will help the Dwarves in Bloody Gate to food and things they need . 3 ) the items i leave in our guildhall to become property off The Orc Bashers )

*tips his hat and walks off *
