You’ve got to check out Cynwise on the Darkmoon Herald Podcast!!!!!
I’m an RP snob.
I know it. I admit it.
Somewhere I heard that confession was the beginning of healing.
Anyway, I know, that I know, that I know I’m an RP snob. (Woohoo; horrid comma use!)
Since I’m such a snob, and I know I’m such a snob, I tend to not RP.
See? Make sense?
Part of what makes me angry, in regards to my previous post, has to do with my RP snobbery.
The person bad-mouthing the GM, did so in regards to the GM’s RP.
The “bad-mouther” had asked about a back story of an alt of the GM. Supposedly, the GM gave him the back story; but it was “filled with misspelled words.”
I’m thinking typos, but what do I know.
The new member, aka “bad-mouther” told him he wasn’t any good at RP, and walked away from him.
The GM then “punished” him for his bad manners by making him a “squire” of another member. One that supposedly the “bad-mouther” got along with.
So, the “bad-mouther” was calling the GM a “douche-bag” in guild chat. Explaining how the GM was a bad RPer, and how his punishment was ineffective since he liked the person he was “squired” to.
Yes, I wholeheartedly dislike disunity. I feel this person was bringing disruption into the group. I believe that this person was acting cowardly by attacking the GM when he wasn’t online.
Most of all…
I felt this guy was a complete and total idiot because of his name…
The person who is on an RP server, complaining about the RP of another person, has the name of:
I have alts.
I have alts in guilds.
I have alts in guilds, where they don’t know that I’m a blogger.
To be honest, I prefer that it never come up.
I’m in one guild where everyone knows who I am in real life.
I’m in another guild where I am identified as “the zwingli of zwingli’s blog.” (totally not kidding)
In the midst of all this guilding, I’ve come upon a conundrum.
Yesterday I was alting on my alt, and heard a relatively new(ish) person to the guild start bashing on the GM.
I was like, “really?!”
We were all chatting it up in /g, but when the bashing started it got soooo quiet.
Next, the person had to log…and then people (7 were on at the time) began to log off as well.
I went on running some Tuskarr dailies/quests; and put it out of my mind. But now, it is back bumping around in my cerebral cortex.
I exited from the conversation. As soon as the individual said their negative statement about the GM, I quit participating in it.
I’m afraid that my lack of participation (not overtly defending the GM) may have added my tacit approval of the person’s bashing.
Truth be told, I’ve not ran around with any of the members in group; and haven’t really held long conversations with many of them at all. So, I don’t know if the GM had been the kind of unkind person he was being made out to be. I’ve not been in the guild for that long, nor I have done much meaningful interaction outside of guild chat.
My default stance is to give people the benefit of the doubt.
If I have a problem with the GM, I would bring it up with the GM and Officers. If nothing came of it, then I would leave the guild. But, I wouldn’t start airing my grievances in guild chat.
So what should I have done/said?
I did take a screen shot of the person’s comments about the GM. I’m thinking about emailing it somewhere, or opening up a ghost blog where I can post it for the GM’s perusal.
One thing I don’t like is someone bringing disunity into a group.
That makes my nelf/blef ears tingle; and pisses off my combat pet! /srsnod
I’ve two young children. Two beautiful little boys that I’m trying to
warp raise up in the Good and Right Ways.
I’ve full assurance that they will grow into great and powerful Heroes of the Alliance.
One thing Mrs. Z has tasked me with is the nightly bath. Apparently she doesn’t appreciate all of the splashing, peeing, and splashing that goes on.
We have toys they play with.
These are educational toys (and yes, I’m hoping at least one will be a hunter; thus the animal shaped letters).
You can imagine the horror when I saw that cute little crab turned over in the tub.
The Horde is Secretly Infiltrating My Children’s Lives!
Ok, I have to admit that mogging Khesed (or any character) in green wasn’t my first choice. But, I also have to admit that I’m kind of happy with what I’ve ended up with. I prefer to use a sword instead of a mace, and I finally found a shield on the AH that worked out well. I’ve not found a helmet I like. Since I tend to run with the helmet not showing, that isn’t such a big deal.
Here are the pics!
The best thing is that these are fairly attainable pieces. Feel free to check out my armory.
Khesed is using the Fel Iron Plate Set
Shoulders: Jade Warrior Pauldrons
Sword: Foe Reaver
Shield: Emerald Shield
I claim no creativity in any of this. I remember The Daily Frostwolf (Druid Edition) blogging about meeting a random Belf using the Fel Iron Plate Set and Jade Warrior Pauldrons. That is what gave me the idea originally. You can find the post here. I then used World of Wardrobes to find the Emerald Shield. It took a few days for one to show up on the AH, and it was cheap! I had Foe Reaver in my inventory “just in case” I found something it could go with. The green gem in the handle makes it great!
Life is good.
Ever since I started playing in 2006, I wanted to have a set of matching armor. But, it just never seemed to happen.
First, I got lured into hitting max level (when it was 60, then 70, then 80, then… you get the idea). I mainly did that through questing. Then, I found Instances! That opened up a whole new world for me. I was going for the L33T 3PiX, as I entered into the Raiding scene sometime in 2010.
Now, I’m an altaholic.
It just so happens that I made a complete set of matching armor (sans the helmet) for one of my alts, Khesed. I think I’ll eventually go with something red, but the green will do for now!
Khesed is sporting the Fel Iron Plate Set
Along with the Mok’Nathal Wildercloak
Of course, he wouldn’t be caught dead wearing anything but a Dark Silk Shirt underneath!
He particularly likes the way it sets off his eyes. /swoon
Now I need to find a green shield to go with it. Any suggestions?
Ray Bradbury has passed away.
He’s one of the authors I have to thank for my love of Science Fiction and Fantasy.
Mr. Bradbury, you’ll be missed. Thank you for the wonderful work you did, inspiring young children to see beyond themselves. To look up and dream at the possibilities found in the stars. Also, thank you for bringing a heightened sense of freedom to me. I appreciate what I have, and so want others to have it as well.
