Mar 15th 2012 10:34AM Famous last words: "Roads are MOSTLY Safe." New to the game, back in Vanilla, my mind somehow skipped over the word "mostly," and I decided to take a shortcut through Duskwood to get to Red Ridge from Westfall, and which point I discovered that Stitches was a major reason for that qualification. Until Cata hit, if I was passing through Duskwood for any reason, Stitches was dead meat if he had been spawned while I was there.

Dec 13th 2011 1:20PM As great as the cutscenes are, there's a problem. I did the smuggler and the trooper on beta, in that order, and it was boring as hell going through the non-class specific quest cutscenes, even with the skip feature, the second time around. I also have to wonder about the amount of time those 8 different storylines are going to add to the patch/expansion cycle of this game.

Yes, Adam needs to cut back on the caffeine.
Aug 15th 2011 5:38PM Not an easy issue. Registered sex offenders contain a wide array of people, from the most despicable of criminals to people whose crimes are far more innocent. At present, there is a hearing in Federal Court in Louisiana to remove those who solicited certain sexual acts under the state's sodomy laws. The state just recently changed the laws so that soliciting oral or anal sex no longer required registry as a sex offender; the present hearing is an attempt to remove those who are presently registered, about 400 people.
There are are other acts which would get you listed and imprisoned in some states, yet not in others. For example, in general in Louisiana (and don't try and rely on this, the specifics are VERY important), a minor who engages in sexual acts with another minor(s) who is two years or less younger than them, are not committing statutory rape. Meaning a 16 year old could legally have sex with a 15-year old in Louisiana. In other states, however, this can vary with widely different results; what might be legal in Louisiana could result in prison in other states.
My advice: If you can find that his number is on the list, you should be able to find out the reason for the listing. Also, I see last names were compared, other people might live at that number, so is there any chance that this is a "false-positive," the guild member's parent or child being the actual offender? This needs to be investigated fully, and everyone appraised of what the offense was and whether this guildie is the actual offender. From that point, it should be taken in steps to determine whether the person should be allowed in, with full notification to all guildies.
However, Robin is right: we should all be careful all the time in game.

Beagles are the next stage in evolution.
Stamina? If that's a beagle wearing it, it'll have an on use feature making mana steaks...unlimited charges.
Jul 19th 2011 2:46PM Okay. Never heard of Swifty before, only until this mess unfolded.
This was a poor piece of reporting. This doesn't tell me what happened to cause the server crashes, only reporting on the fallout.
Please, a comprehensive reporting of the incidents which unfolded to cause this aftermath?
Jul 4th 2011 12:15AM Any Forsaken roleplay needs to always remember
1. That Forsaken can no longer reproduce due to;
2. Their naughty bits either,
a. Don't work anymore, or
b. Have fallen off.
In short, when a Forsaken is stripped down to his/her skivvies, what's underneath is as unhealthy and in as bad a shape (or worse) as the rest of his/her bod.
Aside from the obvious sexual angst, there are some interesting roads you can travel due to these basic facts:
Family. Since your Forsaken can no longer reproduce, how do they feel about their existing families? By all evidence living family members are despised, not cherished as continuing the family line, but would this make Forsaken who have family members who are also Forsaken closer?
There is a future for the Forsaken with the Valkyr. With the Valkyr reproducing new Forsaken, how will your Forsaken react? Will your character view them as Johnny-come-latelies who don't understand what it REALLY means to be Forsaken, or will he/she react with an epihaney; these are the new brothers and sisters, the new sons and daughters, of the Forsaken.
There are as many ways as those themes can be played as there are RPers.
Apr 12th 2011 10:58AM I'm not quite sure I've lost my nerve, but I've tanked my warrior since vanilla, both as off-spec and protection, ( I was constantly queueing as a tank when LFG came out) and I've not tanked at all since Cata came out. Partly it's due to my having a terrible scedule, and one of my two connections I'm having some connection and computer problems, but mostly it's because I've not wanted to deal with the hassle that comes with tanking. I'd planned to get back into it once I was familiar with all the fights, but I've yet to even run all the normal dungeons.
The new Call to Arms might be the kick in the pants I've needed to get back into the swing of tanking.
