So, I was approached via in-game whispers randomly by a person who I do not know, and said person proceeded to inquire about my interest in Night Elf lore. I of course replied I have interest, though my knowledge is limited. From there, I proceeded to accept their verbal invitation, and rules explanation begins. “Rule 1: Avoid hanging out in Elwynn Forest! And Avoid RP In Stormwind because we’re Independent Elves! For a Safe, Peaceful and Drama Free Environment!”
Now, I have no problem adhering to guild rules. It’s no big deal, but I really enjoy walk-up RP. I work a lot, and don’t typically devote a whole bunch of time to one specific character. With that being said, that’s why I use Stormwind for quick walk-ups. I get to scratch my itch, and I’m not holding any one else up. So, obviously I cannot adhere to these rules offered up.
From there, I declined their offer under this same explanation. After this explanation, said person went on to explain how there “would always be RPers available as they are the ‘biggest’ elvish guild in history and they compete with all the Stormwind elven guilds.” From there, it seems they finally caught up to what I had written and replied “Ah, got cha. Well when you plan to RP a real night elf one day, seek us out. Good night”
The crux of this post is to acquire the opinions of my fellow Moon Guardians on whether or not RPing in Stormwind takes away my Night Elf card, and if there is some seemingly endless trove of undiscovered and talented people that never touch foot in Stormwind? Appreciate the help.
