Re: Warg Docs

Yeah.

Just keep in mind, shouldn't ≠ can't.

Re: Warg Docs

I would actually argue that any warg - if beaten by a female - would submit to that female, the same as they would to a male. If she beats them, she's superior to them - end of story. Wargs respect strength more than anything else, after all. That includes if she somehow manages to usurp chiefdom fr...

Re: Warg Docs

Let me be clear: I don't care about the wording change. What blows my mind is that such a large part of the playerbase actually believes that the rest of the playerbase are serial dog rapists, and that they will engage in serial dog rape behavior at the drop of a pin, because of a single sentence in...

Re: Warg Docs

Here are some legitimate questions about the warg documentation: Wolfsong, you might ask, does it even really make sense for wargs to have a rich, detailed oral history that sets Red Maw up as Jesus, Draugluin as God, and Sauron as the Holy Ghost? Wolfsong, you might ask, what is Morgoth? Chopped li...

Re: Warg Docs

I have waited since 2004 to play a warg, and when I finally get the chance, you take my docs and turn them into an issue about rape. I am pretty sure I hate all of you. Edit: Let me just wrap my head around this. You guys are legitimately worried that other players will be unable to contain their ma...

Re: How do you imagine orcs in SoI?

Keeping in mind... - Orcs and goblins are identical. There's absolutely zero difference between an orc and a goblin, according to Tolkien, except that one term was used first, probably due to influence from George Macdonald, and another came later. - Orcs were created when Melkor captured and corrup...

Re: Problems with Lake-Town, and Alternative Settings

I know it sounds absolutely ridiculous, and I know I'm always harping about SOI needing to be more in line with canon, but if I were dictator for the day I'd have us match Tolkien's timeline right up until the events of the Hobbit...and then I'd diverge. And then promptly get smashed by the Tolkien...

Re: Old players

First specific plot I remember about SOI was - as a member of the North Ithilien militia (my 4th or 5th PC at the time?) - getting roped into some kind of plot involving a... vampire? living in a cave under a tree trunk in the Anorien. My first PC on SOI was still alive around the time of Northlands...

Re: Orc Religion

Sharghash: The dead are taken into the deepest tunnels of the mountain, then to hasten the release of the spirit the body is uniformly hacked to pieces. After cracking the dead orc's chest and extracting its heart, the hands are hewn off at the wrist, arms at the elbow and shoulder. Following that,...

Re: Orc Shamans.

Orc Shamans and You: 101 Orcs are brutal, hungry creatures. They will not bow and scrape to everyone who comes along - certainly not without cause. If you want orcs to respect your character, any character, you have to either prove that you are stronger than they are, or that your gods are stronger ...
