A quick extra note:The way I learned the rules was this:1. You shall offer on every line -- Don't let flat, filler lines into your improv, demand responses.2. Don't block an offer -- Roll with their suggestions.3. If you do block, counter-offer immediately.In my example above, Othar counter-offered. He received an offer from Ladyvira (Offer: I'm a demonic fiend in human form!) and blocked (Block: You're level freaking 7!) upon immediately counter-offering (Counter-offer: I counter-attack!). Play continues. It's still good roleplay there.I should also have added that he could have possibly also salvaged it a bit by noting, "I've encountered the sons and daughters of Sergeras every day of my life for the last five years -- And they've gained nothing for their devotion." That recasts her claim as a metaphor rather than literal truth.Now, the downside here is that yes, Ladyvira's player is probably a bit miffed, since she's WANTING to play a being of unimaginable power and she's been schooled. To which I say: You're playing in the wrong game, then. Power levels MATTER in WoW. If you want to describe yourself as a goddess on Azeroth, fine, but hit level 70/80 first.And if you craft a cool human to demigod plot along the way, even better. I'd love to support that kind of fun.
