I know there's quite a few players who visit the forums but don't currently or actively play. Well, if you're wondering, now is the time to get back into the thick of things. It honestly feels a bit like a Renaissance of plots and interesting things to do. The rumor boards are seeing a incredible amount of posts.

There's a ton going on. Easy to run into people around Allanak at all times of the day. The clans are doing cool stuff, but recently to me it seems that independent play is WAY more supported than it has ever been before.  Player clans that have lasted quite a while, a player-ran shop in the bazaar, opportunities to join a hunting crew, or a raiding group that might prey on them. Active jobs and bounties set up by GMH's/Nobles/Templarates for independents that allow you to actually make a living in a multitude of cool ways.

The Gladiators are an awesome addition that have a lot of promise. Especially considering pretty much anyone can app for a secondary pc gladiator. And it's more than just violence and killing things in the arena, there's an entire political and status aspect to it now that allow for more non-com interaction.

The game just has a buzz to it lately. If you've been hesitant to start a PC, now is the best time to do it in years.

Plenty of people around in offpeak as well.

On Zalanthas most sweat would evaporate instantly and cool you easier, because there is no humidity. The extra air-flow of a kilt would also keep things dry.

Agreed. I am having a lot of fun the ladt few weeks. Active, interesting, and bloody.

I always liked the idea of a Krathi (Destruction now, I guess?) in Tuluk, who outright believes they were given their powers from Muk Utep Himself, and tasked with the destruction of those who would move against Tuluk's beliefs, SIMILAR to the trope of the mercenary who creates a world but doesn't belong in it.

Someone speak ill about the Legions in public? That's a fireball.
Didn't say "His Light" when a Chosen came around? That's a fireball.
Trying to arrest me, His Chosen Flame? That's a fireball.
Masks are the Armageddon equivalent of Ed Hardy shirts.

Just 'cause you can't live in Tuluk doesn't mean you can't still play that character.  Take the Sun King's justice to the rest of the world, crazy man!

Yeah, that's the one. I knew it was Chiwetel Ejiofor, but could not for the life of me remember what his character's name was, or The Operative.

Making me look foolish? That's a fireball.
Threatening Nessalin? That's a ban.


Oop!

But really, still on topic, I'm not at the point where I think I could do that role justice outside of spamming skills until I CAN fireball errybody, and then I'd find a way to die to a gortok defending THE KINGDOM.

Also PRAISE THE SUN

You really think BadSkeelz understands the concept of Wine In Front of me? This guy shot me as a townie when he felt threatened. The man's a neandrathal.

Persona for GDB use only. Results in game may vary.

Because I don't have the time for a real character, my current character lives in Tuluk.

I wish I had a sun of my very own.  Also make a character.

Just for shits:

I also want to make a character who sells so much poop to the Poopsmith in Tuluk (may he rest in feces) that the ONLY MIRUKKIM I EVER KNOW is "There's more than just poop in this bag". And I will say it to every dwarf in greeting.

I was thinking about rolling up a new Storyteller when my current character is done.  Any useful tips on background concepts or a good objective to set for future play?

The Storyteller who has been depraved of brainz is always a good place to start.

Background concept: Only leadership experience is as a de-facto Guild Leader on accident back in 2005, and otherwise hasn't sent in a Request or communicated with staff. Future goals: Bring about a small copper mine in an area that is actually impossible to get to without staff assistance, lawd it over all the plebs.
