  1. It might be good to add the disclaimer; "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should." Warcraft is still a high fantasy (albeit with significant sci-fi and 'what is currently popular? copy that!' vibes) setting at its core, and I personally feel like that needs to be honoured. Bards should be commonplace, but they shouldn't be cranking out sick riffs on a Gnomeson Flying V through a Marshall stack. Instead, a simple lute or even a simple parlor guitar should suffice. Songs would mostly be about the deeds of others, or they could be elaborate limericks. A case can be made for some of the old Delta Blues tunes, as they require little more than a pair of strings, harmonica, or a deep voice. For Orcs and Tauren you'd expect something more tribal however. Think of the drums and stringed instruments that you hear in their intro's when making a new character. The old Thunder Bluffs music had a wonderful string section, with instruments that could fairly be used ICly by Tauren musicians. Similarly, 'popular' Stormwind music can most likely contain a number of choirs. Gilneas, with its more Victorian vibe, should focus more on pianists and small groups of classical musicians. Think of a violin, contrabass, metal flutes. This thread makes me want to make a map that shows what would be popular where. Like a cultural music guide of sorts.

    Look. At the picture. See the skull, the part of bone removed, the "master-race" Frankenstein radio controls, the Brain-thoughts Broadcasting Radio, the Eyesight Television, the Frankenstein Earphone Radio, the Threshold Brainwash Radio, the latest new skull reforming to contain ALL Frankenstein Controls, even in THIN skulls of WHITE PEDIGREE MALES! Visible Frankenstein controls! The synthetic nerve-radio directional antennae loop! Make copies for yourself! There is NO ESCAPE from this worst gangster police state, using ALL of the deadly gangster Frankenstein controls!

    The tree represents a series of divine emanations of God's creation itself ex nihilo, the nature of revealed divinity, the human soul, and the spiritual path of ascent by man. In this way, Kabbalists developed the symbol into a full model of reality, using the tree to depict a map of creation. The symbolic configuration is made of 10 spiritual principles, but 11 can be shown, since "Keter" and "Da'at" are interchangeable. The tree of knowledge of good and evil is equivalent to the 10 spheres seen from the last sphere of the diagram ("Malkuth"), and the original tree of life is equivalent to the 10 spheres seen from the middle sphere of the diagram ("Tiferet"). Kabbalists believe the tree of life to be a diagrammatic representation of the process by which the universe came into being. On the tree of life, the beginning of the universe is placed in a space above the first sphere (named "Keter" or "crown" in English). It is not always pictured in reproductions of the tree of life, but is referred to universally as Ain Soph Aur ("Ein Sof" in Hebrew or "endless light" in English). After the energy of creation has condensed into matter, it is thought to reverse its course back up the tree until it is once again united with its true nature: "Keter". Thus, the Kabbalist seeks to know himself and the universe as an expression of God and to make the journey of return by means of the stages charted by the spheres, until he has come to the realization he sought.
  6. It's depressing to see that nothing has changed in 7 years.
  7. The same people have been here since 2012 man this thread aged badly didn't it

    I've had enough

    You're not funny, Sorum. Your entire gimmick was done before your time by @Cynnamun.
  9. I'm unsurprised that there is an attempt being made at working out the numbers behind a specific type's weight, mass and quantum velocity when swung by a three-titted prostitute on a raft crossing the Danube. There's a reason we've even bothered documenting these swords. That's because they were very effective at their intended duty at some point. Simple as.
  10. Paragon as it is, is a result of weak leadership and moderation during 2013 - 2016. This period was earmarked by cronyism on both admin and gm level, with certain cliques being put in effective control for extended periods of time and allowing their friends to get away with a lot of things that should've been heavily scrutinized in general. If you spoke up about a player having these coveted things, you were effectively silenced by their GM buddies, and what followed would be nothing less than a smear campaign. Someone you 'slighted' would begin to 'meme' aggressively about something you never did, forcing it out into the wider community and having them take it up in order to 'fit in' with the 'cool kids'. As a result, there'd be tons of bullshit swirling about you and you'd be vilified by the community as a result. Envy and jealousy were a natural result of these things. People couldn't speak up about blatant bias, and began to harbour hatred towards the people who did have all the nice things. New people on the server picked up on this and a self-perpetuating cycle developed. So here we are, nearly a decade since Paragon's creation and nothing has changed for the past five years. The community is still divided and toxic, with any chance of RP disappearing if you've managed to upset the wrong person in the right clique. Although leadership has marginally improved, it's still a very far cry from what it should be in order to wrangle the server back into the fun place it once was.
  11. But why doesn't it that work with the unholy powers that be in the same way? After all, there should be an eternal balance between the two according to various Naaru sources. I'm completely serious, Syth.
  12. Praise be, Saint Frederick the door-to-door pamphlet salesman. But does this mean that I can bring Aeden back in the Shadowlands? I thought he'd be in the Halls of Valour by now, but it seems Blizzard has decided to rework its lore for the eighty-second time this patch cycle.
  13. But that doesn't work at all. Arthas kills us to become his greatest generals. In essence, we become unholy upon death.
