It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination. She had information to confirm with the spirits – was Gromnor dead? Was he really in the northern part of the Eastern Kingdoms, somewhere […]

RP Friday Five – Reactions
comment 4 Written by on November 21, 2008 – 10:45 am

So this is going to be a little different for a Friday Five.  This week, just think about your characters reactions to the various new things and people that they’re encountering in Northrend.  If you’ve not been to Northrend yet, this might contain some spoilers, but I’m restricting this to the first two zones ONLY (Borean Tundra and Howling Fjord) so hopefully most of you will be able to answer at least a few!

As usual, my answers are below the “Read More” tag.

How is your character reacting to…

  1. D.E.H.T.A?
  2. The Vrykul?
  3. Deathknights?
  4. The Blue Dragonflight?
  5. Fordring’s Return (if Alliance), the New Plague/the Apothecaries (if Horde)?

  1. Annorah thinks the D.E.H.T.A people are NUTS.  She also thinks Nesingwary is nuts.  She’s a lot more about balance and a lot less about vengeance lately.
  2. Aelflaed has come to a balance between awe and respect for the Vrykul as living myths that have come out of the fairy stories that her Da used to tell… and the expected reaction to someone running at you with a Great Axe, offering to sever your head.
  3. Having had little experience with them Annorah is mostly ambivalent to the Deathknights, and is mostly of a “let them figure themselves out” opinion.  Aelflaed… well, she’s not happy about them.  She’s also not throwing rotten fruit at them.  She doesn’t trust them as far as she could throw them, but she also feels horribly bad for them, as a whole.  She’s not really met any individuals yet, so we’ll see what happens then.
  4. The blues are making both Aely and Annorah nervous.  As a guildie of mine put it – having the Blues go apeshit means that a veritable force of nature is now attempting to destroy everything, something like having a hurricane personally stalking you.  Annorah, in particular, doesn’t like them messing with the ley lines, and Aely thinks Dragons are queer and dangerous anyway, when they’re not pissed off.  Of the two, I’d say Annorah has the stronger reaction to Malygos losing his marbles.
  5. And Aely has the stronger reaction to Fordring’s return.  And the fact that the Ashbringer was stuck in the floor of some Light forsaken undead hellhole under the halls of a demented king of an ancient race.  That didn’t sit well either.  She’s going all gung-ho for the Argent Crusade (so far at least) and hopes to join their ranks.

  1. …okay, these are too much fun.

    1. Well, as I put it in chat, Rashona rode up to the DEHTA camp, listened to them for a couple minutes, said “you’re all a bunch of idiots” and rode off. Though she did help out with the traps.

    2. Vrykul? Oh. More hostile humanoids; kill them if necessary and avoid them if possible.

    3. Deathknights are totally on a case-by-case basis, which is Rashona’s approach to things in general.

    4. No particular reverence for the Blues, but Rashona has a general “don’t upset dragons” rule, and it goes double for Aspects. Possibly triple for crazy Aspects. She’ll be keeping her head very, very low.

    5. As for the Apothecaries…BAD feelings there to start, and now that spoilers have happened, she can count the forsaken she likes on the fingers of one hand. (Which, on a Tauren, is bad.)

  2. 1.Ari had a /facepalm moment when she came across DEHTA, have they really forgotten one of their first lessons about culling the wildlife to ensure a balance is kept. On consideration she decided in their own extreme way they are contributing to maintaining that balance, but shes not happy about burning effigies, and while she’s helped them out she has no intention of seeking their company.

    2.Ari hasn’t really thought much about the Vrykul, they’re big and they attacked her. She may wonder more about who and what they are when more pressing matters are attended to.

    3.It’s going to take a lot more than the King of Stormwind declaring them ‘redeemed’ to move Ari from her well known stance of “the only good undead is a dead undead”.

    4 This is a hard one for Ari, they’re dragons after all and along with the Green & Red flights one that Ari has grown up respecting for their wisdom.
    She even tends to agree with Malygos that the use of magic is becoming too commonplace,
    It’s taken speaking with Alexstrasza to convince Ari that the Blue Flight and their intentions really are a danger to Azeroth, rather than just hyberbole from a few arrogant humans.

    5. Human history isn’t Ari’s forte, he’s just a high commander in their army to her. (She never did the EP questline preferred Winterspring)

    short version of the blog entry this inspired, really enjoy your Friday Fives, even if its invariably Saturday before I read them 🙂

  3. In Khol’s own words…

    1. D.E.H.T.A.? Feh. Bunch of druidic whack-jobs that have been sniffing the joss-sticks and listening to whalesong a little too long if you ask me. Still, they pay well, so, sure, I’ll protect the poor widdle animals.

    2. Holy crap, have you seen how huge these guys are??? That stone shaman in Valgarde thinks we humans came from these guys. Right. Like I said, he’s stoned.

    3. Can someone PLEASE tell me who thought it would be a good idea to let a bunch of the Lich King’s elite troops into the Alliance? They need to be smacked about the head and shoulders with a frozen trout. I mean, seriously? These guys are/were Arthas’ shock troops and we’re just supposed to accept them because the Ashbringer’s son is one of them and says they’re all peachy? Nether, Mograine had another son, too. Stabbed him in the back from what I hear. I’m betting the apples didn’t fall far from each other. It’s just a matter of time.

    4. After the Kirin Tor asked me to torture a prisoner for them so they could keep their lily-white conscience clean and didn’t have to get their own hands dirty, I decided maybe Malygos has the right idea. Light knows I’m no stranger to a little application of force to learn what I want to know, but at least I’m honest about it. Not to mention what I do only qualifies as torture in the most literal sense of the word. Most people call it strong-arming. There’s a big difference between beating someone up to get what you want and keeping someone chained up and methodically hurting them.

    5. There aren’t many people think of as genuine heroes anymore, but Fordring is one of them. The man is a living legend. Courageous, honourable, noble and unyielding in his loyalty to the Alliance, Fordragon is the kind of hero the Alliance needs in dark times like these. The fact that he remembered me from that whole debacle with Onyxia was pretty awesome, too.
