Re: Rumors

The slave Thedos was seen with three Iron Ring guards, in the brewery. Who knows what they were doing?

Re: An invitation for dialogue.

Sure, there are a lot of cool things that could happen if players just went ahead and formed the appropriate guilds for it. Notice that, if player initiative by itself was reliable, I doubt this thread would exist. My belief is that the staff would have to take on the active role on implementing an...

Re: An invitation for dialogue.

I don't think you understood, at all... if you're still saying this. My point isn't that playing a slave has to be bad, just that I can see why people would not feel that eager to be part of such roleplay. If you could chose between playing a strong independent bastard, or a slave I think it's obvi...

Re: Rumors

Mauric Jard speaks to Johan, the rumor monger**, giving his own version of the events. Of course, the vain tiefling painted himself in a positive light. Mauric describes himself as standing over the body of Natalya, having ordered Thedos to intervene when the woman attacked Tarl of the Iron Boars. ...

Re: An invitation for dialogue.

Sure there are a lot of different ways to play a slaver, I don't think you understood, at all... if you're still saying this. I am not saying that the Iron Ring has to be that way, I haven't interacted enough with Mauric to judge his intentions. I am just saying that based on what description I hav...

Re: An invitation for dialogue.

Coming back to this, since I apparently missed something... TL;DR: The Iron Ring is a boring faction nobody wants to play, and either the staff should add to its lore to make it more interesting, or add an entirely different evil faction that have more interesting motives than "profits4slavery". I g...

Re: An invitation for dialogue.

I could see having some fun in the Iron Ring if you focused on the political game, not the slave game. Gain power, make threats, ransom the occasional too-pushy interloper off to their friends to make your point. I'd personally rare, if ever, bother trying to slap a collar on a PC, or even NPC. Let...

Re: An invitation for dialogue.

To be fair, Herald of Talos, your solution of evil uniting still assumes that Team Good players are willing to A) reach an accord, IC, to end the conflicts (which is fine but against their faction's basic dogma) OR B) allow permadeath as well. /shrug A large part of a server like this is, conflict g...

Re: An invitation for dialogue.

Or maybe their character just wasn't stupid, made a good guess, and then the guess happened to be confirmed later. It's not metagaming to be a slaver, get kidnapped, guess it was likely to be the Promenade, and then be correct. It's not that player's fault that it wasn't as clever as you folks thou...

Re: An invitation for dialogue.

He did fun things like telling people they were wrong for doing _____, attempted to convert Lolthites to Lathander (oh my god Heartivoroh, why?), made his motives sort of clear in several events among other PCs, and generally just sort of put his ass to the wind to see what would happen. He was onl...
