I'm fairly consistently around morning/mid-day EST, but afternoons and evenings can vary.

Re: Orcs - First Impressions!

I really like it! Most importantly, I really enjoy the orcish culture that the players have developed. It's harsh, but not outright abusive. Respect exists, and isn't just based on who has the biggest axe, but no one is coddled. When I first rolled an orc character, I was worried it would be far mor...

Re: Request: Additional starting Butchering crafts

Very much yes please! I feel silly trying to find reasons to wash out perfectly good blood, just to refill the jars.

Re: If you'd like to help improve the game for every player

From the MUDs I have played, the best way to teach players is to play by example. Having some guidelines is useful, but having more experienced players set the tone is best. I used to jump right to code the first time I ever played SOI (oh, the Ithilien, how I miss being constantly mauled by bears.....

Re: If you'd like to help improve the game for every player

We're all playing a RPI. We might be playing it differently, but the fact that we're all playing means that we have more in common than we don't. There is no gap between players wants for the game that cannot be bridged. We simply need to teach problem players consideration,and publicly reward good...

Oh dear, I'm afraid he likely only made it angry. A bear once came into my igloo in Toronto, it only went away after I apologised profusely.

Re: Anyone else here with zero RP experience?

So, having not yet written up a character, I can only speak from other roleplay experience, and other MUDs I've been part of. When I started roleplaying, I was terrifed to ruin a scene. No one wants to be a wet blanket. The only really solid advice I acn offer is to try not to say 'no', with no othe...

Re: Behind the username

Hi! I'm Nyz. I'm brand new to this incarnation of SoI, and haven't played in earnest since the Battalions, prior to the siege of Osgiliath. I'm in my late 20s, training to be a baker (mmmm, make cookies for money? Don't mind if I do!), and am a lifelong gamer, from battlefield to indie pencil/paper ...
