    Hello Paragon

    Hey there drake. Welcome on board
  5. Took long enough but it is updated now!
  6. Welcome Drake! We've got a fair bit of curated things here on Paragon so feel free to peruse the Clarifications and Applications section but don't let it throw you off. Just feel free to ask the members of the community about where we are in lore and what people have done because a lot of it is 'tribal knowledge' or lost deep within the recesses of the forums. Good to have you on board and I look forward to seeing you in game.

    Hello Paragon

    Welcome aboard friend! It's always good to see new faces arriving. As Turtle mentioned, there are always Moderators about to help out! You can find us in-game by using ".gm in" and looking for the folks with GMLevel 3 or 4, or just by asking around. Looking forward to seeing what you bring to the table!

    Hello Paragon

    Welcome @Drakesward, We're happy to have you on board with us as you step back into the RP'ing community. You'll find that the flavor of Paragon is very distinct and hard to find anywhere. Please let me know if you have any concerns or questions! Cheers, Turtle

    Hello Paragon

    Hello Paragoners, My name is Drake, and I have been off and on Private RP servers for WoW since the dawn of Conquest of the Horde, and even administrated a couple (long, long gone) communities back in the day. I was first recruited for Private server RP through a Warcraft III custom game, DOBRP. So it has been a long, long time of roleplay in the WoW community, but probably six or even seven years since I have actually taken a step into the community at large to join events or otherwise. I was given an invite to Paragon through another RP community where some of your regulars apparently dwell, and I was thrilled to hear that this community, the private WoW RP community, was still alive and thriving. I am very glad to be here, and I hope to- as soon as I am able- take the beginning steps to join you folks online. I generally play my OC, a Kaldorei, but we'll see where the creativity allowed on Paragon RP takes me. I look forward to seeing you all in game. Drake

  11. Character Name: Maeva Almeras Written Work Name: Advanced Abjuration, Selective Warding Written Work Description: Advanced instruction tome on the methods of selective abjuration. Written Work Type: The contents of this book describe the use of selective barriers to increase efficiency and strength of any shield. By choosing what your shields are intended to protect against and specializing your spellcraft, this reduces mana burn for a greater protective barrier. Some spells described by the book are as follows: Aegis, Kinetic: This barrier uses strings of circulating mana condensed into elastic but firm qualities. The mana circulates freely in a spherical or circular shape depending on the shape of the shield. Physical attacks are blocked via deflection. This shield appears as translucent ribbons of mana almost is a basket pattern. Aegis, Energy: When magic is your enemy, this is the spell to use. But sacrificing protection from kinetic sources the mana can more effectively neutralize spells of all sorts. From Fireball, to Silence spells, to Flamestrike, and Polymorph. The mana is condensed into a thin membrane that creates tumultuous vortices. This shield appears almost like a oily bubble, smooth and quickly moving colors shift across it's face. Aegis, Current: The forgotten form! Current barriers are designed to keep environmental hazards away. Extended your mana around you in a rapid circular motion as it is charged. This creates a rapid wind around you with which repels liquid and gaseous attacks. The happy accident that it can also repel and extinguish smaller fires and fire spells is just icing on top. But be warry, the bubble form of this spell will only allow you so much oxygen as you trap inside it with you (or whomever else is within it). This spell appears as a misty surface that swiftly repels gases, liquids, and weaker plasmas. Language: Common Ease of Discovery: Found in the advanced sections of the Stormwind Mage's Guild, Elenore's Library, Montarville's Manor's study, and the Kirin Tor libraries. Character Name: Maeva Almeras Written Work Name: Advanced Transmutation, The Three Transmutive Properties Written Work Description: Advanced instruction tome detailing Maeva's theories and practical uses of the three transmutable properties. Written Work Type: This is less a book containing spells, and more a book that teaches the finer points of transmutation to the reader. While anybody can cast polymorph, or follow transmutation formulae, a true transmuter creates their own magics for use. This book instructs on Maeva's Theory of the Three Transmutive Properties; Space, Matter, and Time. Spells that fall under Space include: Teleportation, Blink, and Expeditious Retreat. Spells that fall under Matter include: Transmutations, Rusting Grasp, and Stoneskin. Finally, spells under Time include: Haste, and Age. Language: Common Ease of Discovery: Found in the advanced sections of the Stormwind Mage's Guild, Elenore's Library, Montarville's Manor's study, and the Kirin Tor libraries.

    Poll 2 - The Wound

    DISCLAIMER: Poll closes Monday! Following recent events, the Alliance has faced off against the Twilight's Hammer, resulting in the Cult gaining access to Ahn'Qiraj, as well as power over Silithids. The Horde, however, has been investigating saboteurs and discovered clues that they failed to put together. Afterwards they took a hard blow in Southwind Village, where an Alliance envoy attempted an assassination on Grol Warblade, but also on destroying the camp as a whole. Time to choose what happens next! Please, notice that some quests appear available for both factions. These are neutral and anyone is welcome to join. Everything else is, indeed, faction specific. Questlines: Operation: Sandscalp [THREAT INCREASED] More and more agents are disappearing by the day, with Nolan Speed becoming more itchy. It seems that whoever is behind this is taking great steps to ensure that we don't find out anything. Twilight of the Cult 2 The Alliance has faced off against the Twilight's Hammer, resulting in the Cult gaining access to Ahn'Qiraj, as well as power over Silithids. Concern grows. Insectoid Examination [THREAT INCREASED] Tammy Tinkspinner from the Alliance and Pixni Rustbomb from the Horde have called out to each respective faction to examine the effects of a mysterious new ore upon the now-frenzied Silithid hive. Following the recent events, the Silithids seem to have become more violent. Disappearances [THREAT INCREASED] The Cenarion Circle have showed their faces in Staghelm Point, announcing that the hour grows late. A number of individuals have gone missing. They need help to discover their fates. Saboteurs in the Area 2 Whilst Grol Warblade recovers, Southwind Village remains in utter disarray. The main voice calls for violent retaliation against the Alliance. Whilst there is no leadership in the encampment, what will you do? Securing our Operations [THREAT INCREASED] The goblins are working around the clock under their taskmasters to mine this new and mysterious subtance and deliver it to Orgrimmar. Though the work is going on full canvas, there are disturbances rising in the form of Old God forces (Silithid, Twilight Cult) that may disturb the operation greatly. It is time to deal with them. Following recent events, the Silithids and the Twilights have gained more power and become more violent. Insectoid Examination [THREAT INCREASED] Tammy Tinkspinner from the Alliance and Pixni Rustbomb from the Horde have called out to each respective faction to examine the effects of a mysterious new ore upon the now-frenzied Silithid hive. Following the recent events, the Silithids seem to have become more violent. Disappearances [THREAT INCREASED] The Earthen Ring have showed their faces in Staghelm Point, announcing that the hour grows late. A number of individuals have gone missing. They need help to discover their fates. Periodic Cartel [Side-Quest] Several of the unstable elementals out of Silithus have been taken up into private hands out of Bilgewater to be sold on the black market as novelty items. These elementals have been spread out through the four corners of Azeroth, their direct whereabouts unknown. Dangerous and unstable, the Horde must investigate the locations and contain these creatures before irreperable harm is done. As always, thank you!
  15. Celarc, that's not what I stated. TRP functions as a client - client based addon, there is no server that plays in the middle that hosts all of the profiles of individuals (else it wouldn't work on any private server), with that, all character profiles get downloaded locally on each user's machine, including other individual's profiles. This ends up with while yes, you in-game can disclaim them, this data exists regardless on your host machine of someone else's data. I'm unsure why you feel the need to explain this away to me, I'll gladly link all of my credentials and degrees over Cybersecurity and Networking, but you're entirely incorrect and frankly, misleading your players in your statement as you're not simply 'stumbling upon a link', the data would be hosted on your local machine, which unless you can illustrate (which considering there's confusion even on your part of how TRP works) to law enforcement entities around the world and all applicable countries, with varying degrees of understanding and due process, you're likely on the line. Also you do understand Steganography exists, right? Perhaps I'll be too strong here, but I'd really appreciate if you try to research this all next time instead of dismissing and explaining away any concerns, especially because as it comes off that it was brought up and you brushed it away, you're ignorantly putting your players into risk, even if the risk is at a .05% chance of manifesting, the risk impact is critical which, if you've ever done Risk Analysis, makes that a Medium Risk.

    Hello once again!

    Welcome back aboard! I'm looking forward to seeing what sorts of ideas you bring to the scene!
  17. All NSFW links need to be disclaimed, and cannot be openly on the TRP. Assuming our theoretical scenario, where someone has posted potentially illicit art punishable in a court of law, it would be hidden behind this url. No pictures have been sent to any IPs, only a line of text leading to the pictures. And as long as these pictures are not saved by any parties (which can be tracked by providers), there is little in the way of repercussion, as in order to be convicted of a crime, you need much more than just to have 'clicked a wrong link'. You need motive, and evidence of participation in the crime. However, if pictures like this exist, and even so much as a link to that sort of content is provided, they will be immediately blacklisted from our community. All cases of arrests are a result of people having images or media saved directly on their drives, which a link does not constitute. As it does not fulfill the requirements of an animus possidendi, or 'Intention To Possess'. If any pictures are found of this sort of content, I would highly urge everyone to report it immediately. While tasteful depictions of NSFW art are acceptable, underage characters are no longer permissible on Paragon, and any art of an underage character, even if just a link, will be treated as that persons TRP containing underage explicit art.
  18. I more so mean pedophilia since even in the UK a man got sentenced to 9 months for owning artwork that depicted underage characters. If it's not enforced, I'd highly suggest adding a disclaimer that it isn't being enforced only because otherwise you know... IP's exist and can be traced, no reason someone needs to get popped because we don't kick degenerates off the server.
  19. @Hydra, This is something I was against though under different reasoning. I'll let the team weigh in on this matter as well. I'm of the mind if we aren't allowing NSFW post on the forums or discord, TRP shouldn't be any different. I'm cool with people sharing art and images of their character, but lewd art is still lewd art at the end of the day in my mind. Thank you for giving your voice on this!
  20. I really want to touch on this based on the two current blacklists being addressed. The very nature of how TRP works is through that channel (I forget the exact name) exchanges data client side by client side, and anyone who caches up on that character (which is why it's easy to load and your client doesn't lag behind) gets that data. That means that anyone who puts anything illegal, the individual's on the other side have their client reaching out and prefetching URLs, so if someone has a TinyURL and it contains something malicious/illegal, your computer would show that it was locally stored on your machine as that's how TRP maintains and saves the data, and ergo, you have malicious/illegal content on your computer. Just food for thought because that should absolutely be a disclaimer if a far more proactive or individuals get unblacklisted.
  21. Oh hey, I remember that name. Welcome back.

    Hello once again!

    Welcome @Mood! We’re glad to have you back with us and looking forward to seeing you in-game. I used to RP on WoW Trance too back in the day (Horde-side). Times change but WoW servers don’t right? Anyway, welcome aboard! Reach out to me directly on Discord if you have any questions or concerns. Cheers, Turtle

    Hello once again!

    Hey there Paragon! It's been a long time since I played WoW RP and mainly Paragon. I remember this server still being discussed in MSN when it was opening up. I was like... 15? Maybe less considering my English (looking back at my posts) For those who don't know me, my name is Lazaros (you can call me Larry if it's easier for you), I am from Greece and my known online names are Mood, JesterJr or Excz. I am turning 25 on November and during my absence from WoW RP, I've been actively RPing on Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Multiplayer (SAMP) server, one of the biggest servers, known as Los Santos Roleplay. I'm in the Roleplaying scene for approximately 14 years (considering I've started RPing in WoW Trance as a hidden RPer, when people used to PvP the sh*t out of us there!). I've spent 10 years of RP on LS:RP (after leaving Paragon then), and there the RP is more modern and realism-based, LA-immersive RP around actual real life. There I Roleplayed as a cop for 7 years (Sheriff to be precise) and eventually ran my own Faction/Guild, known as the Filthy Bastards MC, which is still around and we are an official faction the past 5 months. Back to base! I've seen Paragon being still around and I decided to come back. My character here and on Freedom RP used to be "Ajoro Longblade", so I'm planning to RP with him around at this point of time as a traveller/wandering retired soldier of the army who is middle-aged and so on. It's basically the RP I can provide at the moment considering I got a job and things I gotta attend; which makes it impossible for me to put lots of effort into my RP scenarios that I will have to build! Other than that, it's glad to see this server still around, and I can't wait to RP with you all! Props to @Turtle for helping me set up real quick few days ago!
  24. Yes and I'm sorry for implying other wise when I spoke on those other points about your characters. I don't want to this to turn into a battle on what's technically a class or not, but this rule is purely for keeping shenanigans (memes) out of something the team has deemed as necessary information.
  25. So this is less about class definitions and more just keeping memes out of general.
  26. And this is fine. As long as whatever it is they stick in the "Class" section isn't an outright lie connected to something outside of the WoW universe. We're not asking you to be honest with your TRPs, or to include absolutely everything on them. All we're asking is to simply ensure they are accurate and taken seriously. Or at least, anything in the Characteristics tab of TRP. You are allowed to lie about your identity, within reason. You are allowed to omit information. You are NOT allowed to call yourself the Dovahkin. See what I mean?
