Title: Good job on RP Forum!
Post by: zellda on April 08, 2004, 12:31:50 AM
Just wanted to take the time out to say good job to Davatar on his new appointment to overseeing the RP forum here at PIF. I've taken the time to read the current character stories and I must say that you all are very talented storytellers!

I hope to contribute to those threads as well as make one of my own once time permits. I'm not a good storyteller, and haven't done anything like that before, so it will take me more time to make sure my mythos around "z" isn't half-baked. But I think that its a great start, and I hope that more people get into those threads and make stories of there own...it really will make the WoW character experience richer I believe.

So good work!  :D

Thank you Zellda!

It already went through some big changes, as you probably noticed. I was shown the futility of my first "vision" for the forum, and adopted a new style at the suggestion of a few others.

I have yet to initiate any IC posts from Davatar, as I'm working on another story or two to fill in how he was introduced to PIF, and why he joined. At the moment I'm just going to assume that the guild's purpose, to our characters, is being a community that supports itself. Every member provides something for the rest, even if it only be friendship.

Yeah. I want to really flush out my character and get some type of backstory on how they came to be, and what events brought them to PIF. I've got some good ideas, but they need to be hammered out before I post anything. And right now, I don't have any time to do that, figuring that Champions of Norrath is sucking away all my free time after work. lvl 28 Warrior right now, Woot!

I have to second the congrats, I am greatly enjoying reading the stories so far, and hope to join in not too far from now.

I will be joining in, most likely, when WoW starts.

I just had an idea.  This is an off-topic idea, sort of, but not really....

If we are going to roleplay...  We can't very well have the name of our guild be PIF to our characters.  Perhaps we can use 'Silvergate' for the roleplay side of PIF?

It could be confusing, but an interesting idea nontheless.  What do you think?

Hmm... interesting indeed. It would take explaining to everyone out of guild though, who intereacted with us. Even if they didn't roleplay they are going to wonder what Silvergate is, or why some of us periodically call PIF that.

send them over to the "guild Charter"

it tells all about the transformation from Silvergate - Pay it Forward

Good idea Kailef. Although I can see this heading for a major confusion collision down the road. But you can, like Kaldoran said, make em re-read the charter...its self explanatory in there were Silvergate came from.

But two guilds right off the bat, hrm.

You are brave, mighty Kailef...very brave

It's not two guilds.  It's simply that when we are IC, we refer to the guild as Silvergate, and when we are OOC, we refer to the guild as PIF.  *chuckle*

Yeah, because Pay It Forward isn't an attractive guild name unless your intent is to do as we will, helping and such.
Our characters aren't gonna be doing that, necessarily. That is the OOC mission of the guild.

So in character, the guild is Silvergate. I'm sure Kai would adjust the webpage to reflect this accordingly.

The only thing I can think of is our guild tag will be permanently one title I believe. Well, perhaps it can be changed but even then.. Would we want to display both guild names?
Perhaps "Pay it Foward (SG)" or something.. I don't know..
Maybe it isn't even necessary and when we're IC and someone asks what PIF is, we private message them the answer or just go OOC for a bit. *shrug*

Ok, now I'm confused. Beyond confused actually.
Maybe it's better if you don't explain. Ignorance is bliss.
My head hurts now.

Well, let me explain....

Er, nevermind.

Hey, what was that for?  >:(

Eww...now I smell like tuna. :'(

I don't know what it was for, honestly.  I was gripped by the urge to do something random, I guess.  Uh-oh, I'm feeling the faint yet tantalizing tug of insanity once again...

*dumps an entire truck full of tuna on Zellda*

(Well, if everyone else gets to have their weird gimmick, I need one, too.)

*wonders why Kailef decided to use 3-month old tuna that had been left out in the sun*

Jeez that wreeks..... *gags* I'm glad I'm not under that..
