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 […]

Raid Signups – RP Style
comment 2 Written by on June 15, 2009 – 10:51 am

There are a lot of things I enjoy about TRI (my raid group).  I enjoy their company.  I enjoy that we have pretty solid progression for a “casual” raid (which is to say, we raid 7 hours a week).  I enjoy that raids are as much silly fun and RP as they are srs bsns – and that we get things done while still being able to goof around a little on occasion.

But there’s a new thing that’s started with LK raiding – a new thing which I like more and more each week.

We’ve always had creative sign ups – usually based around song lyrics or movie quotes that relate to that week’s progression or boss attempts.  Recently, however, while the thread titles and “yes” and “no” list titles have still been song and movie related, the posts themselves have been in character.  And many of the responses have ALSO been in character.

And the one that was posted today… well, it’s taken the cake.  The descent into madness, with a drunken night elf (who should never have gone drinking with the dwarf priest) a monocle’d white rabbit disappearing into a hole, and a bunch of other nonsense.  The responses have been fantastic, Aely got to actually be in character in Northrend again (with her wounded shoulder from Wrathgate), and I can’t wait to see what other folks come up with.

My favorite individual posts, however, were from last week’s discussion of Mimiron:

Fury Warrior (Engineer): I’m not so sure you should dismiss the wonders of engineering so quickly, though. I have a plan in mind to defeat Mimiron entirely by surprise that only requires a Gnomish Remote Control, half a dozen World Enlargers, and 232 explosive sheep…

Raid Leader (also Engineer): … and twenty four of us hiding in the f*cking tram car!

Rogue: Not me. I’ll be stealthed right outside the room with a readied Sprint cooldown. I want to see this.

  1. As said Fury Warrior/Engineer, I only regret that no one asked me to explain my plan. Valinar really did have a plan in mind, and it was every bit as ludicrous as its components make it sound…
