    Alliance Statement

    [center][size="3"][b]Knights of the Bell[/b][/size] [img]http://img257.imageshack.us/img257/1674/mdkob.jpg[/img] Traditionally the Knights of the Bell were the elite defending and military alliance of Marind Bell but with more seats available and now as main alliance of Marind Bell another section, the pilgrims, will reside within the alliance as well. Pilgrimage in the Knights of the Bell means a journey to one’s centre and a path to greater awareness. A Pilgrim of the Bell has the ability to listen to the voice of the land and to hear its calling in order to give Marind Bell a new face a

    [quote name='Dominus Lux' timestamp='1306478123' post='85225'] When I first started playing this game, I did so at the request of a good friend of mine. The biggest selling point for me was how expansive and unique the role-playing element of the game was. Now, I just reached MP4, and don't get me wrong, I love the game so far, but the role-playing community here has been...dissapointing. I went out of my way to write what I thought was a fairly interesting backstory for my character; I made Dominus into a real person in the hopes of becoming a part of the story that [i]is[/i] MD.

    [quote name='Jester' timestamp='1306520477' post='85263'] Have you considered the "RP Reality requirement: moderate" aspect yet? I haven't looked into this very much myself, but I think it simply means that your RP has to follow the guidelines set by the amount of people. For example, if you have two or three people in a scene flying around or transforming, since the RP Reality requirement is set low, they can. The issue that was happening is from when you have two or three people making up spells amongst a crowd of thirty people, and the rest of the group don't believe in the spells. If y

    I'm going to throw thoughts in this 1. I was gone for a year and came back a few weeks ago... and it's been a pain to find anyone even chat with so I would say yeah roleplaying is probably at a low point 2. as far as " blue text not equal roleplay" your right but doing nothing doesn't equal anything that is why it's call nothing, anyone who wants to even imply that stat griding is a role please send me cash and your adress so I can try to beat some sense into you or at the very least bleed of a little stress 3. as far as the "god moding" thing goes that cames from not knowing how to role

    [quote name='Prince Lewas' timestamp='1306518566' post='85261'] I think, everything that matters can be found in this reply... shows the main problems what have caused that undesirable difference in RP, and in the community at all. --- We should not judge the others, telling our opinions or feelings on whether his/her role is good or not - simply we can't, it's relative. We are here only to form ideas, make suggestions and talk about... not someone's role exactly, but about all of us, the whole MD people - so, RP in general. Better not to RP just for yourself and to simply enjoy it. RP

    I think the questions here are who and where, rather than how. The Wind and Rain Pub in Wind's Sanctuary used to be a hotbed of role-play, and there is a movement on to rejuvenate that. Futher up the road at Awiiya the tree, there is often discussion of stories. There are quests (my special interest), occassional planned events, and several times a year - festivals. Christmas really is a wonderful time. You just missed the 6th birthday party. ps - people will care more about your backstory when your character's action catch their eye...

    I am a young player myself, so please take that with a grain of salt. As another topic opened in the General section would show you, people put a lot of different meaning into Role Playing. I would strongly suggest that you find a few people who enjoy RP the way you do it. It should be feasible in the community. Those might not be in crowded locations like The Marind's Bell Park... as you seem to have noticed it. But they are there, somewhere. Once you have found a few of players that you feel comfortable with, then start enjoying your RP in that small community, and progressively you will

    My 2 cents: There are several elements of good RP. People have often mentioned no god-modding: this is when you set your character as almighty and practically invincible. Then there is bunnying: when you RP another person's reaction. And then there is one more thing: following the setting. MD used to have a setting: it's a distinct world of its own, whose inhabitants are people who were strangely transported to this world, landing on the paper cabin, meeting Marind and then deciding what to do, what role they want to take up in this world they are brand new to. Back then, roles like dragon

    [quote name='TTLexceeded' timestamp='1306430284' post='85157'] Ehm I dont see you suggesting anything or actually finding the root of the problem, if there is a problem. All i can see is that your pub has no Role Players... Your problem. *coughs* Your idea of roleplaying is classes?????? and you even suggest there is a correct way to roleplay. Strike 1 Also please enlighten me. What is the wrong and the right way to RP? For example your RP (Keida) to me looks rediculous because it disregards the reality of MD. Is your RP wrong? No offense just making a point. Yours TTL [/quote] If

    The start of the YADC!

    Starting today, on the 148th day of the Year 6, I would like to announce the start of the Young Adults Drinking Club! With all the Bars, Pubs, and Beer Kegs in all the lands, I would like to start a "Club" to teach the minors of the Realm how to drink responsibly. Lets start off with examining the common turn of phrase: Beer before Liquor, never sicker. This phrase is not true. It doesn't matter what types of alcohol you consume, as the absorbtion rate is the same no matter what! So! What have we learned today?! You can drink how much of what ever you want, and not get sick bec

Once reasoned men's appeals were lost on me why they should life repeal for such as thee, with fragile limbs so scarce to even bloom, and call thee by such famed non de plume, why one and all their heart's compassion flows as water from their hands in your repose, and how they rationed actions to be good which lessened lives of men to that of wood, but now it is in wisdom that I see that things are sometimes more than what they seem, and now it is in truth that I should know that yours is but a symbol born of hope.

    So, Keida, in your opinion good rp is making multiple alts and causing needless drama? Especially in your little area by the lake, having multiple babies in a rash that seems highly unrealistic, and falling in love with a multitude of men? Excuse me, but that is not role play. I see that as trash. But that's just me. I may not role play now, but I have for quite a few years before getting fed up with it and all the invisible rules that have been given out as to who can do what, what constitutes this or that, what even makes it GOOD. Role play is a community thing. I agree that t

    Community Garden Design

    Well, my friends, the time has come. I have redrawn the design map with far more grace than yesterday's slop. I present to you a map in three stages. Base map - existing elements and contours [attachment=2977:meetinggardenmap2-med.jpg] Design map - images only [attachment=2978:meetinggardenmap3-med.jpg] Design map - elements labeled [attachment=2979:meetinggardenmap4-med.jpg] These are works in progress and not the final designs. As we continue to discuss the garden, I will add or alter elements as necessary. I hope these maps help to foster further creativity in all of us.

    Weather Effects

    I have some little ideas in connection with this weather-effect thing... [quote name='Prince Marvolo' timestamp='1291740756' post='74761'] I also think weather should be able to influence actual gameplay, otherwise, it's just a picture in the trigger box, and mostly ignored. Which makes it rather, dull. As I said in the topic about 'season signatures' (or something like that) it would be nice too to have 'constant weather', With month X more sunny, and month Y more rainy I have no idea if that is code-able though.
