Storywriting RPG, anyone?

There's the drink and a little extra! The other tavernmaiden is also a NPC, just gave her a name. ;)

If you want to be a vampire, well I guess that is your option as long as no one feels that is does not fit into the world we have started telling a story in (does not bother me personally as long as you do not get silly with it). However, this is not a VTM campaign. A vampire would be interested in the idea of a creature that sustains itself from blood, but without being "magical" (although being stronger after fresh meal would make sense in my mind).

Even though I did not define it, the players so far are treating more along the lines of low fantasy (from my pov), possibly with a few unnatural elements (one RP is already from the aspect of something not "normal"). That would be fine by me as I am not a huge fan of dealing with magic in a story like this.

Ahem. I have a furry midget Geomancer resting in the woods.

Who might make his way over to the tavern to join in at a later point in time.

(I have a great idea about how to break up the fight that I think is upcoming)

A furry midget still could fit in lower fantasy, and no where have you established any sort of "geomancer" ability thus far. Your "magical" stick could even be a remnant of ancient lost technology (which would make for an awesome setting really). I go off what i read and in the case of your stick how my mind interprets it.

You'd better get off my turf if you're planning to piss off my friends.

That's the pitfall basicly, and it's very annoying really to the point i simply quit (along with the rest of my guild) age of conan on the rp server.

For some obscure reason it royally pisses of so called 'rpers' that a character is immortal & feeds on blood. Every other aspect of that gets completely ignored. While in Vtm, the immortal part & feeding on blood get completely ignored lmao.

I can probably twist a malkavian or tremere to fit a silvari actually. Since i'll be definatly rolling a char like that anyways, will have to read into silvari but i'm quite sure you can use the character templates of vtm to fit all gw2 races/professions.

I'll go malk & focus on the insanity part. :twisted:

I personally would have nothing against that, I enjoy everyone seeing their own way, and if immortality is a part of that, so be it. This isn't a contest, is it? It's an adventure we embark on together. (incoming gay seals)

You want to be an immortal vampire, I do not really care, I just thought a non-standard approach would be more entertaining. I like to throw out suggestions. Just fit in and maintain the tone that people have already established. Currently, there are essentially two "areas" where RPs are taking place (not counting whatever the hell is sleeping) and you are always free to ignore that. In the overall, however, it will always make the story go better when players group up and play off one another.
