Why do you play what you play?

Postby Karae » Tue Dec 02, 2003 12:05 am

Just wondering
I play a paladin becuase I search for truth in real life, and I can't stand it when people pick on people smaller than them.

I play an anti because I have for three pwipes now. Started playing them back when they were just a horrid class and almost no one else touched them. It's good to be different.

Also my character and or the characters I play in no way reflect anything about myself in RL, that's why I play the game - to get away not mirror it.

I play a ranger because I like the smell of pine needles and being outdoors. . .

Hate YOU most of all ..

I play a variety of classes because I get bored very easily (ADHD MUCH??)

* Ambar ... well she is the Ogre what can I say
* Telina .. is the chanter and my nurturing instinct makes me want to protect you guys ...
* Karikhan .. always thought the ress spell was oober so i wanted it (will never forget u Justin for being my biggest supporter for that quest)
* Aerisia is my latest obsession .... elementalist is just fun, and I think I am ready to evolve into my next step in my mudding addiction .. questiong .. also the mentalist is fun to use to solo stuff ... Also thought this would be the perfect running mate for the lichboy ...
*Shalia/Shalea ... hmmm druid ... I guess at some point I will level my druid again ...
* Narra, troll warrior ... sometimes it's just fun to hack and slash shit when I'm ina horrible mood or pissed off at life in general, so ... err yeah ...

So yeah I multi-task .. sue me ....

I guess I started out as a paladin (Iaiken) because ever since I was lil I've wanted to be a knight (as per the charlemagne era)... Trained in epee through highschool and an accomplished equestrian rider with a few hunter championships to show for it. But that's about as close as I'll ever get IRL, so I played one on the mud where RL didn't matter. This was back when they were an abhorent class that nobody played or grouped with. So I just got used to soloing things.

That sole reliance I guess is what stepped me into my next evolution, the elementalist Silsaterur. As an elementalist, you don't REALLY need anyone, there are quite a few zones you can do solo while everyone else runs off to clouds/scorps/etc... Course it takes time, patients and a hell of a lot more time and some stuff you just have to skip. That about wraps it up... that and because karikhan told me to. *lick*

Pretty much randomly decided to be a paladin in soj1. Kept with the paladin bit until soj3. Wanted to be a better in group tank so I went warrior. Wanted to be even better in group tank and made another warrior. Wanted to be even better and made another warrior. Still wanna be better but I dont wanna start over as an evil.

I play the squid for the difficulity and I think that illithids are the coolest race ever created! Their whole pshycology and body mechanics are just really cool. I also think they're one of the best replacements for monks with added utility.

Lich - Because underneath it all I'm a very evil and sarcastic person.
Dwarf Warrior - The nice/caring/chivalrous side of me and what not. Notice I don't play him much?
Rogue - Cause I'm evil sarcastic sneaky and underhanded.
Gnome - Because I'm annoying and repetitive. Watch me annoy those who haven't mastered tab complete.

Enchanter - Because Sorcerer wasn't an option, and I was spec enchant as a sorc anyway. Besides, I like a challenge.
Anti - Because I'm evil at heart. Also because it's fun not to die.

Silly Kifle. I play a rogue because I like to explore and figure out puzzles, and being a rogue means I don't have to have somebody else hold my hand just so I can go look at a room description. Being a rogue also means I see all sorts of things people probably wish I didn't... and I sometimes wish I didn't.

I rolled necro to become a lich for the RP. Once I became a lich I stopped RP'n the character. (Ironic?)
I play a Lich because they are fun as hell to explore with, especially when all your other chars are day blind. Oh yeah, they rule to smackdown the paly groups. :)

I rolled an invoker because I was going to quit and some dork troll /lich/ranger/freaking everything else talked me into it and well I love it so there :P
I play an invoker because I don't need a ton of aliases or spellbooks or remember what each circle 20 some odd spells fall into. I also play an invoker because I like to lead as one and bring more melee damage then invokers.

I rolled a rogue to help people with certain quests.
I play a rogue because I like linking audio wav files to the various weapon procs.

I rolled an enchanter because evils never seem to have enough.
I play an enchanter because I want to help my guild out.

I'll prolly work on leveling up my cleric after the enchanter.

Everything shimmers madly as you are enveloped by blackness.
Suddenly the darkness falls revealing different surroundings.

A Dim Corridor
A dappled dim orange light filters in from the steel grate ceiling,
filling this part of the corridor with a surreal glow from the shifting
light that fills this layer of Acheron. The floor is perfectly smooth and
level, and is unmarred with any seams, cracks, or defects. Any blood spilled
disappears rapidly, keeping the battlefield pristine. The walls are carved
from the same matte black stone as the floor, but are roughly chiseled,
almost resembling the surface of a distant sea. Screams of pain and the
clamor of battle reverberate through the hallway, filling your veins with
bloodlust, and urging you on to either kill or be killed...either way you
will have fulfilled your destiny in Thuldanin.

We would look over and he would be over there rubbing his hands together in glee staring intently at the screen.
