Application Letter:

Do not remove

Dear Rhyme and Punishment,
My name is Gastrodalf Moonfeather, Im 63 years old, and have lived my entire life in Darnassus until now. Recently, i was attacked by a spider the size of a hound. It came charging at me on my way home one night, and something miraculous happened. With a shout, flames radiated from my body, and burned the spider into fleeing. I discovered at this old age, that i have a power inside of me. I heard there were other people with the power to control fire aswell known as Mages. Now, i seek adventure and to save Azaroth against invaders, because i have been on the sidelines for far to long now. I have just been reading my life away. That's why i'm sending you this letter. I heard you are a group of adventurers with the same ideas as me. And to be honest, this old man might need some help. Thank you for taking the time to read this letter, and i wish you luck in the wars to come,
With kind and ''warm'' regards,
Gastrodalf Moonfeather

Your fondest RP memory:

Do not remove

Well i used to play rp on the ptr, when that was still active. And i joined an group travel rp, where we as the alliance army were to go to the eastern plaguelands to fight the scourge. In the beginning, i met a female nightelf, who was very kind to me and we were in a flirty conversation along the way (Dont worry, i do not like ERP)
But along the way she dissapeared, and i just kept talking to people. So when we arrived, we had to roll and alot of casualty fell. One roll was for that person to become evil and betray the rest. That was her. There was a scenario where she could choose to fight someone, and i thought she had forgotten about me, but then pointed at me and we had to fight. Eventhough i lost the fight, i really like the fact that there was some continuity that happend because of some little conversation at the beginning

I have a bit of a niggle regarding night elf life span and the age of Darnassus.

The Teldrassil tree was planted, and the city of Darnassus established, after the Third War had finished and before the events of World of Warcraft had started. That makes the city's age to be around 15 to 20 years.

Night elves live a long time, up to the age of thousands of years. I dislike the concept of "long-lived races remain children until they are hundreds of years old", because having to change a baby's diapers for fifty years is just... euuuuugh. I'd rather say "they grow up into young-adulthood within a few decades just as shorter-lived races, but despite their adult appearance, the older members of their races consider them 'newbies' until they have at least a few hundred years' worth of experience." One way or the other, a sixty-year old elf is a young whipper-snapper.

So mmmmaybe Gastrodalf accidentally missed a zero or two in his age? Or he's just really bad with numbers and dates and places (Darnassus? I meant Thalassia. Wait, that's not a place. Astranaar? Someplace like that.) ;)

A sad note and a word of warning: Rhyme and Punishment guild has been rather quiet and inactive recently. We are not a heavy raiding, dungeoneering or PvP guild with strong guild-wide goals and attendance requirements for members. Thus, many people (myself included) have finished their goals for the expansion and taken a shorter or longer break from playing. A new major patch (such as Argus coming up some time in the future) will no doubt bring back some people, as will of course a new expansion (but we have no idea how many years we'll have to wait for that). But for now you might see only a few people online at any time.

Gastrodalf on 08 Jul 2017 17:20 wrote:are the planned RP events, on the calender for instance?

We used to have regular RP events for a long time, usually led by the enthusiastic GM of a friendly guild. Sadly, I must admit that with the decline in attendance and the increasing RL responsibilities of the event leader, the RP events are nowadays few and far between.
What kind of sick individual burns a book full of perfectly good dark arts?!
