I wrote up a series of articles requiring things like clothed citizens, for them not to have a stench at the Matrix, and so on. Tulemrah argued against the clothed part, declaring it "art" if people were unclothed.
Everiine is a man, and is very manly. This MAN before you is so manly you might as well just gender bend right now, cause he's the manliest man that you ever did see. His manly shape has spurned many women and girlyer men to boughs of fainting. He stands before you in a manly manerific typical man-like outfit which is covered in his manly motto: "I am a man!"Daraius said: You gotta risk it for the biscuit.Pony power all the way, yo.

Arcanis said:Edit: Concerning player relationships affecting ideals and concepts, I take to hand the alliances that had formed in the past for no reason but PvP benefit. It wasnt that long ago that we saw Celest allied with Glomdoring, which the very idea defies what celest stands for (if anyone ever tries to debate this as pro-RP, then I will literally find some way to make your eyes bleed from afar -,-). Even better, Magnagora, city of (supposedly) undeath, taint and demons, allied with the 'pure' Serenwilde...simply both based upon player feelings to these orgs. Such a shame
I'm pretty sure that aspect of Magnagora was intended from the beginning.
The more and more people talk about "old-school glom," the more resigned I am to not want it to happen ever again. I have heard so many horror stories about it that frankly, I worry that what's happening now might go a little too far. It doesn't help that there is apparent snark coming from a few particular individuals, though I've come to an understanding that those people would probably show it regardless of what's happening.
It's really starting to feel that "old school Glom" was something fun if you were in it, but anti-fun if you weren't. I'm sorry to everyone that wants Glom to be the kill-everything-that-moves sort of merciless, but as long as I'm around, I'll be doing my best to keep things in check. I refuse to see any org fall into a place where it begins robbing people of their fun.
Trust me, I'm all for hunting down particular people who deserve it (and last night is only the beginning). I'm all for the turn of the High Coven claiming Serenwilde unfit to protect the fae. I'm all for us becoming the ruthless protectors of the Maeve. However, the day the raiding ceases to have a point and is just raiding for the sake of raiding, I'm out.
We can be assholes ICly, but we can also do it with tact.
Because darkness has been hijacked by Glomdoring is why.
Rancoura said:What I miss more about old Glom is the pride and immersion in our lore that existed. We were dark, and we were proud. We were beautiful, and we were proud. We revelled in our glory, and damn it, we were proud. All the while, however, we retained our elitist decorum - the frivolity that I've seen pervade the populace since then didn't exist. And people were ENTHUSIASTIC about our lore. That is what I miss.
Back in the day, spirituality was rampant throughout Glomdoring. The Coven led rituals on a semi-regular basis, religious sermons were given (by other guilds as well) to raptly attentive audiences, there were festivals, contests, group kephera hunts, even grand cultural projects that varied from beautifying the entire forest or adding little bits and pieces to it to theatre exercises, wargames and commune-wide poetry readings or play watching. I suppose it was just more inclusive, and there was a greater sense of community within the organization. Edit: As to the "elitist decorum" I'm referring to, that probably relates more to the more aristocratic feel there used to be in the Coven.
Has anybody written alternate history fanfic where the Matrix was chosen as the launching point for Cosmic Hope? :x
Magnagora was fun, it was called Mag Tag for a reason, only one org played it and people seemed to like the challenge. I disliked basically spitting on the serfs basically everyone starts as a serf and that can be a turn off. I would LOVE to see an explanation of an orgs RP so people didn't think they were abused, they would KNOW why it was going on.Glomdoring was simply more righteous in what they knew. I don't remember them ever raiding nearly as much as the cities of the time. Zealotry should be a key component of Glomdoring, "Fai Glomdoring!" should say it all.
