Squire Benjamin William Sullivan stood in the middle of Light’s Hope Chapel in his underpants.

Actually, it was white linen pants and a shift, but the effect was approximately the same. The little chapel was warm, on the edge of …

Welcome to the October 17 Edition of the RP Friday Five!  Every Friday, you’ll find a list of five questions to spark your roleplaying curiosity and flesh out a character a little more – hopefully without any of the long, supposedly painful searching to figure them out.  This week’s five questions are related to what everyone in my guild seems to be thinking about – achievements (personal, in game, titled, and otherwise).  As usual, you can find my answers under the “read more” tag!

  1. What is your character most proud of?
  2. What traits does he or she really respect in another person?
  3. Does your character have any titles, and if so, does he or she actually use them?
  4. Is your character looking to get any recognition through the new system of achievements?
  5. What’s one silly, irrelevant, or otherwise not in character achievement that you think you’ll get, even if your character would NEVER do something like that?

  1. Aelflaed is proud of her background as a woman of the North.  Annalira is proud of her healing abilities, as well as her family’s ability to stick it out and stick together even with all the horrible stuff going around.  Annorah is most proud of her connection to the Elements, but she’s pretty defensive about her healing too.   Angoleth isn’t sure what she’s proud of anymore.
  2. Angoleth is the hardest of my characters to get true respect from, but is incredibly loyal to anyone who shows that they’re loyal as well.  She’s not as interested in people that follow the law so much as those who are true to what they believe in – and are willing to stand up for that.  Aelflaed is somewhat similar, but she’s more open and friendly in general.
  3. Angoleth hangs on to her old Sergeant Major title, though sometimes she’s a little embarrassed for doing so.  She’s no longer on active service, and they don’t let people carry the Sentinel title anymore, so she keeps it as something of a remembrance.  Annorah is a Champion of the Naaru, but she won’t actually use the title.  She’s a little nervous around the Naaru of late, especially with the whole Sunwell thing, and would rather deal with the Elements – as hard to read as they can be.  Berylla, my fire mage, is Berylla Jenkins.  She loves it.
  4. Angoleth would like to be recognized as an Explorer – and also for her collection of pets.  Annylais would like to earn the title of Guardian of Cenarius, given that she’s spent a fair amount of time in the Dream/Nightmare.  And Aelflaed will be looking for the Argent Champion title.  As a former member of the Silver Hand, she can’t imagine NOT gaining that reputation even if there wasn’t actually a title for it!
  5. Going Down! – which I’ve completed on Angoleth, is totally irrelevant to anyone.  None of my characters are really the cliff-jumping type (except maybe Aelflaed, on a dare).

  3. 1. Khol tends to be most proud of his skills as a thief and, by extension, his collection of trophies as a result of those skills.

    2. Ironically, Khol respects those who are honest, straight-forward and loyal. Despite being a thief and (sometimes) assassin, Khol dislikes lying and much prefers to use the truth when possible. Loyal almost to a fault himself, provided someone can prove they are worthy of his loyalty, Khol is the kind of person who can be relied on to go to the gates of hell and back if need be.

    3. The only title Khol has ever has was the rank of Sergeant from his days in the army. A few people who knew him then still refer to him as such, but for the most part he doesn’t associate with people he served with.

    4. Khol’s a pretty humble sort of guy, and recognition for anything isn’t really all that good of a thing to have in his line of work, so he’s not really looking to be recognised for any achievements, really. That said, he’s decided that once he’s done with thieving, he’s going to open a restaurant and so the Chef title holds some appeal.

    5. Um, almost all of them…I’m a completionist by nature so the achievement system is one more way for me to fritter away hours and days trying to knock out as many achievements as possible.

  4. 1. What is your character most proud of?

    Being the true leader of the world and being loved and feared by everyone.

    2. What traits does he or she really respect in another person?

    canine devotion

    3. Does your character have any titles, and if so, does he or she actually use them?

    leader of the world, but it is a secret still

    4. Is your character looking to get any recognition through the new system of achievements?

    this is useless

    5. What’s one silly, irrelevant, or otherwise not in character achievement that you think you’ll get, even if your character would NEVER do something like that?

  5. None of my characters are really the cliff-jumping type (except maybe Aelflaed, on a dare)

    Don’t you mean “Aelflaed, by accident”? ;-)

    Also, why is Annorah iffy about the Naaru?

    Sihas last blog post..Popular, Ain’t It?

  6. @Siha:

    She’s never had a particularly strong connection to the Light (she was a warrior of some sort, before this whole Shaman business), and recently, with M’uru’s corruption, she’s not so sure they’re the amazing infallible beings of Pure Light that they’re touted to be. She doesn’t doubt that A’dal and the others are beings for “good” as opposed to “evil”, but she’s just not really enthused about having their mark on her name all the time. I’m not sure she’ll take any title, for that matter. She’s kind of persnickety about things like that, and would rather just be Farseer Annorah or just plain old Annorah. :)
