Welcome to the Achaea Forums! Please be sure to read the Forum Rules
I was sitting here thinking, one of the things I've noticed and complained privately (by clans, tells, etc) is the lack of 1 v 1 interraction between factions. I can fondly remember being a young achaean and shouting dumb things, and anyone whos been around as long as I have will agree that shouts were way out of hand, but what I was getting at was it used to be a great way to develop rivalries, and conflict between factions.
We all take oaths when we join a house or city to defend, uphold the.. whats the word. virtues? I can remember shouting something as dumb as "Shallam sucks" and someone else would shout "Name *whatever your shout voice was*? As an Infernal at the time Malaclypse would then tell someone to go deal with it, and boom. Rivalry begun. sometimes you'd get raped by someone way out of your league in combat, but a lot of times it brought people of equal might and ability together.
Obviously shouts need to be watched. no one wants to see or hear something as stupid as a shout about how someone likes pie, and the other nonsense that used to be shouted, and of course I am aware of the rams horns located around the world but no one really wants to blow a goat just to shout. As a channel that is and was intended for RP use, it should be more widely available and monitored. Hopefully after a few people lost their ability to shout, and standards were placed it would be an effective channel to use
