Any roleplayers still active?

Feel like burning like a bright wizard? Being as green as a gobbo? Robust like an Ironbreaker? Bloodthirsty like a witch elf? Feel free to speak as them here.

A part of me was hoping to find more familiar faces from the old days.
Though the wealth of new blood is also hopeful.

RoR, or Warhammer Online for that matter, was never a traditional roleplaying game.

RP events are centered around the core gameplay. Whereas in something like WoW you'd expect an RP event to take place in or near some settlement and involve lots of chatting, RoR RP events are different.

In RoR an RP event is generally a racially-themed warband, sometimes with underthemes depending on what "unit" the guild is trying to roleplay: for example, Bitterstone Thunderers (dwarfs) running gun lines (WBs comprised primarily of engineers) or Averland Greatswords (humans) running greatsword units (2h Knights with a WP here and there for support). Freebootaz (greenskin) are generally fluid and have whatever is available in them, because greenskins.

There are three racial guilds on Order side, but two of them are (afaik) just alt guilds for Bitterstones, so they're the ones to talk to.

Destro side it's just Freebootaz.


Fun fact:

Ocassionally, you get WH guilds popping up (cause there's a billion of the buggers and no one wants one), and they sometimes even have very nicely themed names. This is the only case I've ever noticed in the wild of non-RPers prataking in RP without them realising it.

False about "no taditional rp" :P

There were RP sessions with elven Eternal Host and Dark Elves Kar Kadath Regiment.

Both sides followed a storyline pointed by guild leaders.
EH vs KKR GvG fights defined outcome and followup on story.
It did happened at least once a week and continued for years...

So yea.... "ror never had rpg" my ar** ;)

Unfortunately its all dead now.
