Wisdom teeth eek

Well we have been unable to post a show, and yes I realize that, and I also realize I have yet to fix episode 12. Two weeks ago I had my wisdom teeth taken out very painfully and spent the first week asleep on the couch, now that it is week two I am still having problems, which has also created scheduling conflicts with Deadlei. But we will be back up in running in just a few days. Hope you all can forgive me!

Episode 11: Holy Sorrows and Raiding Joys

In this epiosde we talk about everything from following the holy ways aka being a priest to more and more RP realms! This was a shorter epiosde but good all the same with yours truly editting and playing the music, find all my errors and send hate mail! (Joking!) We also answered two very good emails about a priest who made his own healing macros, to a guy who wants to RP but also raids, we had a solution for them both! For the realms portion I got a reveiw on Black Water Raiders along with additional Earthen Ring along with many others! Enjoy!

New Changes to Site!

Hey everyone Deadlei here,

I felt the need to make this site not only a way to know new upgrades about the Podcast but a way to also let you guys use us for more than an audio resource. So I took the time to do some searching and found soem great sites that could be used to Role-playing needs aswell as a link to the Role-play Offical WoW forums which have GREAT tips there. Also if you guys were looking for a RP/RP-PvP realm and werent sure which one to go to, I even listed a clickable link to those forums also! Each one has its own characteristics. I also added a lore link section according to the ones through Wikipedia, there are lots more out there but this was easiest to find.

Also the audio quality of the show is getting alot better and people have been throwing out compliments and such. So many thank you's to those people. I've gotten help fixing my mic volume (kudos to Lumid from WoW Addons) and im also starting to do some of the editing, since we normally record on Mondays at 6pm pst and 9est time the release date normally varies.

I also have alot of fun playing and chatting with you guys in game and in e-mails. Keep it comming! Be sure to send in audio files and skype calls also, we love to get those so dont be shy!

Thats all for now!

Episode 6: Roleplay Do's and Dont's Along with Roleplay Fashion

In Episode 6 we cover Do's and Don'ts to basic role-playing along with clothes and armor used for role-playing aswell as general use. Also discussed was how to get your characters story out when meeting new people, aswell as finding the lore for yourself. Deadlei editied the show for the first time ever so nobody kill her or send hate mail ^_^"

The list of Do's and Dont's

DO choose the character traits you want to roleplay before you create your character.

DO think about your character's personal history. Which city did he or she hail from? What was his or her family like? Does he or she have any intense likes or dislikes? Obsessions or Phobias?

DON'T feel that you have to roleplay yourself. Roleplaying a character significantly different than your own personality is one of the joys of roleplaying.

DON'T feel that you have to roleplay a character that's your same gender.

DO try to learn more about the opposite gender if you decide to gender-bend your character. Women and men have significantly different sets of desires and rationales, but many of them are the same. If you are a male roleplaying a female, then prissy speech, extreme vanity, or 'overly' feminine behavior will do more to harm your character than it will to help. The same goes for females who want to roleplay males that are interested in nothing but athletics, rude behavior, and objectification of women.

DO consider making notes as to the actions your character makes and those actions the character witnesses.

DO keep your character's age in mind. Is your character child-like, adolescent, adult, elderly? How does that affect your character's behavior?

DON'T try to constantly speak in archaic language. 'Thee' and 'Thou' are pretty, but annoying. Use them when appropriate, such as a very formal setting or around deities.

DO attempt to maintain consistency. If your character speaks in a drawl or dialect, for example, dropping that dialect suddenly will ruin the suspension of disbelief. A Troll who "uzyuulee speeks lyk dis" will run into roleplaying problems if he suddenly starts speaking in coherent English. It's better for the Troll to be intelligent enough to carry on a conversation in the first place than it is for him to suddenly become intelligent.

DON'T try to force those around you to roleplay, especially when you're not with people you know. Trying to get a pick-up group to role-play is usually a recipe for disaster.

DO try to stay in character around those you don't know, but don't be afraid to drop out of character if you have to.

DON'T use abbreviations when roleplaying. It's much more convincing to use complete words or sentences.

DO use in-game items to roleplay. Foraged items and tradeskill items make excellent roleplaying accessories.

DON'T use roleplaying as an excuse to act in an offensive or abusive manner.

Come RP With us

So we've gotten a lot of emails, and just people talking to me in game who have said 'I want to RP but I'm scared to try and look dumb'. Well we have the solution! Over on the Earthen Ring (US RP server) we have created a channel that Deadlei and I are always in. Just type /join rptavern and your in! This is an open RP for anyone, everyone, and even noobs. Just jump in and start somewhere. Deadlei and I, when we are on, will try to RP with you, give you hints, tips, and the like!

The whole point of this is to give you a place where everyone can screw up, ask questions, and become better Roleplayers!

Also I'd like to give a big THANK YOU to Desdimina who has contributed funds to help us get started, and will also be showing up on the next show to give us the point of view of a newb roleplayer.
