    They originally came in cause I had the audacity to touch one of their relics :( how dare I!

    Looks like a short clip of a fairly extended conversation from an OOC clan we're in, yes.

    Also while I think the off-rail conversation is interesting to hash out, I thought this thread was more about what modern Houses you like and why, rather than a discussion of raids, their role in the cities and the consequences of dealing with them!
    And I love too                                                                          Be still, my indelible friend
    That love soon might end                                                         You are unbreaking

    Yes, I want to know why people like the Targossian houses so much.

    I joined the Harbingers because @Draqoom tried to pull the "WE ARE SO DARK AND MYSTERIOUS" card when I tried to join the Luminai. Have never regretted it. 

    I like the Harbingers; outside of the Occultists or Naga, they're probably my favorite house. It's very much like the Sylvans were (which I loved), just without all the clique-ish bullshit and uselessness (which I hated). They have a small but awesome group of active people (Torinn/Elipise/Aralaya/Daeir/Carmell/Greys/Micaelis/Reymi/others) who do a lot of work to help make the game more fun for other people, which is rad. 

    We also get the loosest rules on fraternization (in practice), which means we also get the opportunity to RP with people from other factions on a fairly regular basis beyond just raiding them. I like that. 
    Aurora says, "Are you drunk, Aodfionn?"

    Cyrenians are also restricted by law from participating in defense elsewhere (which I think is a little silly myself, but maybe that's just me).
    Were you not Cyrenian all the times Cyrene got raided because Exelethril and Shirszae defended Eleusis?

    Being a former Cyrenian Duke/high ranking knight wasn't fun for keeping a low profile while defending the "then" underdogs, got lots of PK in though

    @Kiskan - I don't really see Jhui doing anything bad, except being a dick to people who are usually dicks. Nobody's forcing those guys to come defend totems. That's a choice THEY made. Could've just gagged that shit and kept on keeping on doing whatever it was they were doing.

    Uhh, we did just that. But then you went and decided to guard bash because you guys threw a hissy fit that we were ignoring you. I mean, make up whatever imaginary excuses you want, but you guys were being basic bitches

    I'm still not actually sure why people aren't using the "flush" button either (i.e. at some point, you just refuse to engage).  But they know that better than I do.  People say the guard costs shouldn't be too crushing (which I think is probably true, actually), and in a game like Achaea, some favour hound is almost always happy to fix totems, so that leaves... I really am not sure.  It's something people who have been stuck defending a lot more than they'd like could probably answer if they thought about it.   

    But it's the end that gets my attention even more than what was apparently the Director's Cut of raiding.  It's like, not only am I going to raid as long as I damned well please (which I always do, by the sound of it), but isn't it funny how these idiots keep saying what a great guy I am.

    The end, more than anything, is the sort of mask slip you'll rarely see from someone who is really really really good at getting away with murder.

    When you start to overanalayze the game like this it becomes a lot less fun. Let us griefers be griefers and you non coms bash up the gold to restore your guards

    Who is this "Y'all" even referring to? As far as I know, the only one bringing it up is Kiskan, who doesn't actually play this game (afaik).

    I was mainly footstomping Skye's point one page back.  I was sort of afraid people would miss that somehow and think it just came up out of the blue even though I referred to her post in mine and it is just one page ago :(

    Because of the agreement between the three forestal guilds (IIRC) I believe this meant she was also barred from joining the Druids or Sylvans - not 100% sure on that part though, maybe my memory is inventing it.
    This was a real thing.

    I'm pretty sure that's verbatim stolen from sentinel guild novice test
     It was Against The Rules to summon any animals as a novice, even though it was one of your skills and what kind of human with a pulse could resist summoning a cute cuddly fierce animal companion in any MMO, so they were kicking her out. 
    Stuff like this was why I disliked Guilds. Can't have a falcon until X Can't have a Grove until Y. Who cares that you have the ability, we're going to restrict your usage of your class skills. If they should have been restricted to full members than they should have been the third skill not one of your two primary skills >.<

    And you can only get the interview after you've bashed to level 40 with novice skills, been a novice for an RL week, and written two essays and a letter of introduction.

    My time in guilds can be summed up with the following:

    I don't like your name, bye.
    You are breathing my air, bye.
    You took 8 miliseconds to answer a question, bye.
    You did not repeat the answer verbatim, bye.
    You repeated the answer verbatim, bye.

    My site will remain up, but will not be maintained. The repository will continue to have scripts added to it if I decide to play another game. Maybe I'll see you around in Starmourn!
