This was an awesome HRPT
« on: July 29, 2013, 12:53:34 AM »
The best part about this HRPT for me was not was the actual experiences the players got to enjoy today but that finally the story wheels of the game have finally started movng again in a wonderful direction.

What happened in this HRPT to me felt so long over due, for the longest time i've felt that gypsy lands which all their rumored richness should have been taken over by a city state and/or just opened up to the general playerbase.  I remember having characters that wondered about that YEARS ago. I think what occured to the lands (which is now common knowledge) was just another perfect solution. Kudos to the staff or staff members that made this happen because it just made so much sense.

What happened today was really just one of the things i really wanted to see happen in the game. It is right up there on my list of things i want to see happen in the game,right beside the removal of all powerful sorcerer kings and making the tablelands becoming explorable march or jungle, forcing elves and tribes inward in the scrub and red desert.

I truely believe this HRPT will open the door to more RP opportunities as well. The last HRPT made the world much richer in my opinion to play in with the removal of halflings and introduction of kryl just to name a few things. I think this HRPT has truely done the same.

Once again Kudos to the staff. I can't wait to see what happens in the world next.

The only thing hotter than a gypsy, is a dead gypsy.

Hey now, I got in trouble for joking about people dying, you best not joke about the poor gypsies dying lest:

Don't make me joke you, ShaLeah.

I'm fairly sure Tek only lets his soldiers go to war as a bit of entertainment. "Aight, I've had my fun, time to do something about that bloody molehill I've had in my back yard all these years.."

Come on Martha, pack up da fire elementals, where moving.

I"ve booked a flight with Air Tek on the Black dragon  at 4:55

Don't forget we have to get there an hour early to check our volcano at the bagage handling.

At least the movers will have the place in bloody order for our arrival.

Hands down their a cut above the rest.

Their work is almost magical.

Got a good deal on it too, from some Gypos, mostly because its in a bad neighborhood. You know the one with all those funny talking tree huggers.

I just wonder how those nakkis define winning....

Twenty nakkis leave with a bomb...one returns, but the bomb killed a Templar.

The nakki reports "WE WON!"

For those trying to figure out who won, don't forget about virtual numbers, and exactly what each side did jut before the neighborhood got a tad warmer.

Awesome HRPT, and I'm very excited about the direction the game is going.

I am also excited about gypsies getting to play gypsies again. I love their history and culture, but Tyn Dashra was just too cozy and isolated.

I like to think Allanak won. Sure, they didn't get what they wanted, but nobody else got it either, cause fuck you, if Allanak ain't happy, ain't nobody happy.

On top of that, they managed to get rid of a pesky volcano outside their walls and TEK SARAK.

*disclaimer: Unapologetic Allanaki fanboy, cause Allanak is the best city.

Both sides won, both sides lost, neither side realizes it.

Come on folks, this is Armageddon. Murder, Corruption, Betrayal. If it was straight forward, it wouldn't be Arm.

I too really enjoyed this HRPT. It was not as flamboyant as the last one with the golems and floodings and stuff like that but I found this one to be more RP driven and had a story to it, which I very much more prefer. This means more opportunities for rp to fulfill this new storyline and I'm excited about that.

You can make a case that Tuluk lost, but you really cannot make a case that Allanak lost.

If you read the post there's fertile land sitting right outside Allanak now.
And there was some dwarf smoking spice, and I thought that was so scandalous because I'd only been playing in 'nak.

Fertile land or not, there's really no downside to no longer having a volcano sitting on your front porch.

Well, I think you need break it down. Between winning and success. Allanak, surely at least partly successful....but at what cost? Did Tuluk Cost them more for that success then Tuluk lost or was it even...etc etc.

I have to think of WWII, The brits come up with a plan to blow up german dams.  They send a crap load of bombers...in the end most the bombers were lost. So, the germans won...but the mission was successful.

(edit) The Muark lost though...but I think like many that is a win for the game and the players...finally they might get to actually be gypsies.
