    The Rumor Mill

    The large roc known as 'Steeltalon' was butchered by three aspiring hunters last night, Rothan now adorns his spear with the dead roc's skull.

  13. Actually, kind of something that has bothered me for awhile. I do not want people to be forced off the boat to only have a choice between one or two very low res, ugly sets per armor type. That said, I don't want new characters to pop in wearing shiny, grand marshal gear. But, considering we have a town and it is viable to make a new character who has been in the Doldrums for a bit, I'd like to provide atleast something slightly better. Atleast a few higher res grey items. That is just me, though. I'll see what we can come up with when I got some time to talk to people on it.

    [Event] The Warlords Call

    In recent times, the Horde have fallen into chaos with the absence of Warlord Bloodfury and the destruction of Grom'Thar. Until the return, the Horde have re-established themselves as a growing force of reckoning for their enemies. Around various settlements on Opej'nor where Horde races were found, notices sprung up: Attention, true Sons and Daughters of the Horde! For too long we have been scattered and broken, downtrodden by those who believe we are nothing but savages. I, Warlord Bloodfury, call upon the true people of the Horde who wish to stand under our banner once more. To make amends for the tragedies of the past, and to bring death to those who have wronged us! Join us in restoring our dignity and glory, and allow us to make a home for our people here, perhaps find a way out of these Islands so we can re-connect with our loved ones. Join me in my camp at the base of Grom'Thar Peak. Hear my words, and then decide whether you wish to truly stand with us or not. Lok'tar Ogar! The Horde will never die. Not whilst we draw breath. What: This event is for the chance for people to introduce new characters for the Mork'Kar Vanguard, and to gather more support and influence through NPCs on Opej'nor. Who: Anyone who is a Horde race is willing to join. Anyone with known ties to enemy groups/banned from the area will be turned away. Where: At the Mork'Kar Vanguard camp at the base of Grom'Thar Peak Time: Sunday 23rd of July, 9 PM GMT +1 GM Aid?: Possibly, depending on whether Keepers decide any NPCs from other settlements may attend to listen and possibly pledge to the Horde. Hope to see some of you Hordies there! It's important people tell me their availability so I can choose a more appropriate date.

    The Mork'Kar Vanguard [Guild Draft]

    pledged to that
  19. Pledged. Time to stomp again.
  20. I could see a little more variety of trash added, as long as it's trash. I must admit, I've had a few character concepts that I wanted to go with that I couldn't manage to build a trashy set for.

    Sir Alistair Roux

    i heard he did great things in northrend
  22. Now that I have internet back, and have had a few days to take in the information, I would like to say a few things. I’ve thought about Shores and some other things in my time away and I would like to outline my thoughts here. - - - Firstly, I apologize to those I have been angry, rude and short with over the last couple of months, like Dascombe, Greg, McDankus and others, I am sure. I was having a hard time balancing real life and Shores and I should’ve taken a few weeks off to avoid a fiery burnout and get my house in order. I did not and it made me far more aggressive and angry then I might normally be. I’m not going to go into details, as I do not want to make excuses or seem to beg for pity. This is merely owning up to my rather lackluster behavior. - - - Secondly, we are going to unban McDankus. While I do not think the situation is as cut and dry as it may seem on either side, I did not handle it as I should have and therefore, we will not enforce it, as it would not be right to do so. Ever since the incident, we’ve revised and completed the Peacekeeping system, as well as the Curator role more properly, as to ensure that something like this will not happen again. It is up to the Staff, via the Curator, to keep the guidelines and rules up to date as well as their enforcement, amongst other things. - - - Thirdly, a few words on the situation with Langkjaer: He is an exceptional DM and a wonderful storyteller and if any of you have the chance to be in something he runs, I highly recommend taking the opportunity if his vein of storytelling seems to be up your alley. I honestly believe it and I’ve never told him or anyone that I think any less of his skills. The issues with him being on the Keeper team stem from a clash between his style of DMing and the current world of Shores. There is a lot of information to take in, as the server is almost a year old now, with things happening daily or weekly. From my point of view, Lang would have definitely fared far better being on the storytelling team from the onset of the server’s launch, where he would’ve had a clean slate to work with. His ideas and plans were not the issue in and of themselves. Rather, it was the clash between those ideas and the lore already established on the server. I greatly appreciate the work he did and I am sad we could not work things out. He is a great DM and I wish him well in whatever he pursues. - - - Lastly, I do plan on eventually stepping away from the position of Head Keeper. I always have, and I still do. That said, it will be when Varen and I feel the transition will be easy and Varen has someone he trusts to continue working towards the vision we have for the server. I would like to clarify how I obtained this position. It was offered to me by Varen after Antioch quit both the staff and server, and the only two active staff were the both of us. I took it because it was something the server needed and there was, at the time, literally no one else to take it. If I had felt that anyone else on the server at the time would have been better, or were active enough to provide the help and work Varen and Shores needed, I would not have taken it. Keeper alone is a demanding position, especially when you try and cover a timezone roughly 6+ hours ahead of your own. The post made by Varen about the server and community is the direction we have both had for a long time. We’ve both put a great deal of time and ourselves into Shores. There were times I answered tickets for 5+ hours in a single day. Varen has put a great deal of time into coding, bug fixes and changes to the RPG system. At the end of the day, we are not paid in any way, shape, or form, nor does anyone pay to be here. The vision we have for shores is far different from what it was upon the initial launch. It is galaxies different from how Legacy was, and it is not something everyone will enjoy. We are well aware of this and at the end of the day it comes down to the fact that is our decision. There may be people who will not like the transition to our end goal, nor the end goal itself, and I understand that. I’ve come to accept this and I will not fight to keep anyone here when they are not happy with it, because at the end of the day, for each and everyone of us, this is a hobby. I’m certain there are more productive and boring things to do in real life, but we all choose to do this. Everyone has different tastes, and things they like from RP. We’ve a set goal in mind and a point we wish to reach with everything. Once we are there, then certainly, we will be able to take much more of the criticism and ideals into far more careful and public consideration then it has been done so far. - - - To wrap this long post up: to those who choose to play on here, I will do my utmost to be at the very least neutral in my dealings with people. To those who chose to leave, I wish you the best regards in wherever you go and whatever you do. I do not hold any ill-will towards anyone in this community and I hope I’ve been able to make that clear.
  23. This sort I think the theme of the server is that if you want to look good, you earn it. What inclination do people have to peruse that nice gear in the crafting system if they just wear their flashy looking starter gear? I disagree with making characters 'look good' in the start in terms of mid-high status gear, I do however agree with having more variety in terms of what tatty kit is available. There's an abundance of trash items available without including things like tuxedos.
  24. heya thanks for the feedback!! as said i just simply want a bit more selection on the starter zone, just because you start out with nothing doesn't it mean you shouldn't look dandy as hell as a hobo - what kind of hobo would have blue leather/cloth even, that's a thing too i can see your points but i disagree with keeping the amount of items like they are since i think making your character look good is a very critical part of creating a new character!!
  25. Diverging off topic here briefly but I think this is an issue due to the fact that the RPG system updates so frequently and has new additions added to it so often that any 'guides' or information dumps quickly become out of date. It would be handy to have a member of staff with not too much workload or with a spare hour or two to compile current and up to date list that can be edited in the future. Back on topic: More grey items would be nice. Honestly one of the more pressing issues I currently find newbies querying is the amount of plain everyday items (rolling pin, chefs hat etc) that are rare. This is something that could be rectified if more folks got in contact with Skippy or if it's made clearer that there's a process by which item rareities can be changed.
