...I think it's just the discord.

We do have a website https://solwra.enjin.com/


Wrong thread, my dear.

Yes, we do only have a discord that we communicate out of game on.

I have been following you rotbrains and I have selected two of you to single out. I may not be sanctioned by the Undercity, but destroying you will be in the service of the Warchief!

You cannot kill that which has no life.

(Lasambra) #184
I am not going to kill that which has no life, I'm going to transform you into a maximum state of entropy. You will be dust in the wind when I'm finished with you.

Yes good, good. I like to see Horde destroy one another. Remove more deaders for us all little Elf.

Your helmet looks silly and is ill-fitting.

“Trusting in the wisdom of those sovereign ‘rulers’ has only brought us misery, a curse of rot and decay, and the loss of all that we cherished before! Are we simply to continue down this same path until we are laid low again? Trust in our ‘betters’ as they continue to profit from our protection? Our labor?”

“I say, no more! We should forge our own destiny together! Free from the yoke of nobles and monarchs that wish only to profit from our efforts while offering little in return. Workers, ‘common folk’, craftsmen, and even the lowliest dregs are entitled to reap the benefits of that which they create for themselves and their fellows."
“And so I ask you…", he motioned in the direction of one particular individual towards the front of the crowd, pointing in an almost accusatory way, "…will you join me in casting off the shackles of the so called ‘Banshee Queen’ as we once cast off those placed upon us by the Lich King?"

-Barnabas

Where is the Forsaken with such words at these nights? When has he last spoken to the people?

Interesting. And it is theoretically within the laws of the Forsaken when going for the newly risen. There's a choice to walk, join, or go back to death.

Also my Forsaken: "She's not actual royalty moron. No lineage or whatever. She leads because we agreed to follow."

I am not a representative of the Strawmen, just a fan. My interpretation is not that the speaker is calling Sylvanas Royalty, but rather to set her up on a pedestal as equal to royalty by the followers is going to create the same result as we had with Arthas.

Also, " She leads because she took charge first, she has become Warchief because of the path she has taken since. We have choice, this is true. If your choice doesn't please the Dark Lady, our Banshee queen, then you are not free to live that choice to it's fullest potential."

I kinda wish something like the Strawmen had been a thing instead of the Desolate Council. Its such a unique, sympathetic perspective on the forsaken people! And if it had been them instead of the Desolate council who were offered a chance to meet their living relatives...

...then Sylvvanas culling them as traitors would have made sense, since they are openly speaking against her.

Please bring back the sneaky, manipulative sylvanas who outsmarted DREADLORDS, instead of the megalomaniac weird social-darwinism-speech-making sylvanas.

Hmm, The Desolate Council makes more sense to me as far as being allowed to form as a governing body. But, I agree with you on the part of culling. Getting rid of a group like the Strawmen would be les megalomaniac that the events that transpired in the book.

It seems like Blizz is set on destroying Sylvanas in my opinion, which is what I felt since Cata.
Maybe she will be another Karrigan?

This has been my suspicion since they made her Warchief though I was thinking that would have happened in Legion but instead she got beat up by a grandpa and then fought for some stupid towers the rest of the time. So maybe that redemption will come in BfA or not who knows???

I just dont understand why she wasnt shown fighting on Argus! She's the warchief of one of the factions, and she's certainly more relevant than friggan VEREESA! She should have been right there trying to convince Alleria to rejoin her people, giving Alleria some conflictedness, even if Alleria ultimately chooses the Alliance.

The old Sylvanas, the manipulative, sneaky, SMART sylvanas, would have brought Alleria's old friends who are now blood elves to talk her into joining the horde, and a bunch of Turalyon's dead friends who are now forsaken to try to convince him the people of Lordaeron are now on the horde.

Something that at least makes her SEEM sympathetic, no matter what her real agenda is. Instead she's either doing nothing and letting potential allies slip by or she's painting a huge target on her own head.

There's a general lack of "fleshing out" of the socio-political character of the Forsaken, I think. The default setting of "I <3 Sylvanas" runs the risk of making things kind of one dimensional, so I'm glad folks have been appreciating our ideas and premise!

This would have definitely prevented most people from seeing Her dark turn so easily.

The Forsaken are starting to split

**digs a tight hole three feet deep. He puts a sturdy pole into it and replaces the dirt. He mounts a scarecrow on top, seven feet up. The location is at the bottom of a hill next to the lake in the Western Plaguelands, the spot that Carmen had burned the paper doll of an Elf which attacked the Strawmen.

" Your soul is next to burn Lasambra!"

anyone update their addons yet?

(Versca) #200
Yes, but now I need to update my drivers and not sure which one is the problem. So far everything is listed up to date so why are my graphics going nuts. I have a feeling it might not like my Cintiq because a lot of things don't like my Cintiq!! :(
